    Bigla2004 is zappin PR's with CORE ZAP (sponsored)



    Zappiní PRís with CORE ZAP


    Age: 19

    Sex: Male

    Height: 6

    Weight: 187 give or take

    Approximate bf%: Around 10

    Bodytype: Mesomorph

    Training Experience: Been lifting for about 5 years now, originally started with sport oriented training for basketball and baseball. From there I went to Starting Strength, then P/RR/S, Modified version of Layne Nortonís program, and now DC. I have been making great gains ever since.

    What supps you are using:
    Multivitamin (Animal Pak)
    Anabolic Pump / Yellow Gold as I see fit
    Xtend (during cardio)
    Storm
    Torrent
    Primaforce Bulk BA
    TP's TeamSkip Blend

    Goals:
    Right now I'm trying some carb cycling. I'm taking in about 3000 calories as of now on workout days. 300 G's or protein 300 G's of carbs, and about 60-70 grams of fats. On tuesday and thursday I'll go lower carb (<150 grams) but bump the protein and fats up a bit with some natty pb, evoo, and eggs. Saturday and Sunday are moderate carbs depending on how I'm feeling and the occasional refeed. My main goal is to increase my strength. I have upped my cardio for summer, but I don't believe my strength should suffer. Core ZAP should aid me in setting PR's while I lean out a bit.

    Other: Before pictures will be posted soon. Also I'm still waiting for the product to come but it should within the next couple days.

    Zappiní PRís with CORE ZAP


    Initial thoughts: I received the package today after my workout. Normally I would have been pissed, but I killed it in the gym today. However, I am rarely taken back by a bottle design or label, but this bottle looks awesome. If this was on the shelves it'd definitely stand out amongst the competition. I love the bright colors and orange caps . As of now, I will be using this for my three workouts per week and if permitted by Doug and the Core Nutritional team once or twice a week again with cardio. I'll be when I say I'm not a fan of cardio at all, but with the focus I think this supplement will provide the 30 minutes or so could be a breeze and the caffeine can aid in body composition. I plan on judging this supplements effectiveness on three categories every time I post; energy, well being/focus, and last but definitely not least performance. These are all the plans anyway and without further wait the before pics I'm somewhat ashamed of. The lighting isn't incredible but I did promise pictures and these will give a general idea. I don't expect major body composition changes over the 4-6 weeks of use, performance is what I'm going for, but here it is. I hope this does prove that any gains that occur rapidly are not by any means "newbie" gains.

    About Zap



    Highlights:

    * Awesome mental focus, clarity, and increased memory
    * Significant strength and performance increases
    * Enhanced sense of well being
    * Improved metabolism and fat loss
    * Increased libido and aggression


    CORE ZAP is a unique combination of highly effective and proven ingredients in significant quantities that will give you workouts like you have never experienced before! Each serving of CORE ZAP contains:

    * 250 mg of Epimedium (50% Icariin)
    * 40 mg of Geranium (1,3-Dimethylpentylamine)
    * 500 mg of Sulbutiamine
    * 1000 mg of L-Tyrosine
    * 200 mg of Caffeine


    Physiological Properties and Effects:

    Epimedium (icariin 50%): Has been found in clinical studies to improve the condition of reproductive organs and increase the circulating levels of testosterone. By increasing levels of dopamine, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and serotonin it causes an energy-promoting effect, and by reducing cortisol levels also produces an anti-stress effect. The icariin found in epimedium can restore low levels of both testosterone and thyroid hormone for improved libido. Studies using epimedium have demonstrated reduced bone breakdown, increased muscle mass, and a loss of body fat. When taken pre-workout, icariin?s energy promoting effects excel and an increase in aggression can be noticed

    Geranium (1,3 Dimethylpentylamine): Produces a chemical effect similar to adrenaline. It strongly stimulates the central nervous system, leading to increased energy, mental clarity, and enhanced physical performance. This has been found to be especially desirable for athletes requiring extreme focus and muscular exertion. In lower dosages (around 20-25 mg) it causes a pleasant and smooth stimulating effect. At 40 mg, and in combination with 200 mg of caffeine, the result is extreme energy, euphoria, and intense focus. There are also secondary fat-loss effects due to an increase in the chemical messenger that triggers fat release (cAMP), as well the thermogenic properties of this combination.

    Sulbutiamine: Stimulates the nervous systems responsible for physical activity, wakefulness, and attention. It is a nootropic agent?a cognitive enhancer with demonstrated clinical effects in improving memory. Sometimes prescribed for patients suffering from lethargy, fatigue, and physical weakness from convalescence, it is a potent stimulant for athletes seeking improved mental and physical performance. A fat soluble derivative of vitamin B-1 (thiamine), sulbutiamine has been shown to promote wakefulness, long term memory, improved response to stress, and positive mood. Typically, the mood uplift subsides easily and promotes restful sleep with vivid dreaming. Taken pre-workout, sulbutiamine creates an intense focus and seems to promote a better mind muscle connection.

    L-Tyrosine: An essential amino acid, acts as a precursor to the adrenal hormones norepinephrine, epinephrine, and dopamine. It supports positive mood and also contributes to adrenal, thyroid, and pituitary function by converting to the thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4)?which powerfully stimulates fat loss. Several studies have found tyrosine to effectively mitigate stress, cold, fatigue, prolonged work, and sleep deprivation, by reducing stress hormone levels. Both animal and human clinical trials have demonstrated improvements in cognitive and physical performance. Tyrosine also helps to potentiate the effects of caffeine.

    Caffeine: A well-known stimulant for boosting energy and improving mood. In excessive quantities it produces a jittery, nervous feeling. But at 200 mg, it effectively interacts with the other ingredients in this formula to stimulate mental alertness and create a feeling of well-being, while providing added energy for more intense workouts.

    Expect results from the company that knows Performance Is Everything"!

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 1..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    Drag Curls- 95 x 12-5-4 (up 5 reps from last time)

    Hammer Curls- 45's x 11-5-4 (up 2 reps from last time)

    Stand Calf Extension- 160 x 10 (super slow negative, holding stretch at bottom, then bounce reps at failure)

    Leg Curls- 140x7 (same)

    Icarian Leg Press (stack not plates)- 320x10, 260x20 (up a lot)



    Days Thoughts: Good first impressions. Big PR on the drag curls, but then again the point of DC training is to PR every time your in the gym . My 5 rep increase there was unreal though, and to come back with hammer curls and still pack on another 2 reps made me happy. Let me know if you guys ever have any questions or want to know about an aspect of the supplement. I'll try to answer your question to the best of my ability.
    Energy: The energy was clean and there was no rush. I jumped into 4 caps because caffeine doesn't have a huge effect on me. It was well sustained and I really didn't want to leave the gym. Normally after my 20 rep widowmaker I'm shot. Today I didn't want to leave and pounded the abs and obliques after.
    Focus / Well Being: Good. I didn't have like an anger related or adrenaline rush I expected. However, during my rest pause sets (the foundation of DC training) I just didn't want to stop and I felt like I could keep going.
    Gym Performance: Simply great. I really can't remember another time when I increased a bicep workout by 5 reps. Also, I'm taking legs light nursing a knee injury back but the performance on the leg press was solid. Every rep the knees touched the chest and had a controlled negative.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 2..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline DB Press - 85's x 12-3-2 (up 6 reps, and last time had a spotter)

    Smith Shoulder Press - 175 x 6-3-2 (up 2 reps and 10 lbs)

    Smith CGBP - 210 x 7-4-3 (up 5 reps and 5 lbs)

    Rack Chins - bw + 50 x 11-6-4 (up 2 reps and 5 lbs)

    T-Bar Row - 270 x 9 (up 10 lbs)



    Days Thoughts: Woke up this morning and did 30 minutes of low intensity cardio with only xtend + ba in my system. Workout was incredible shattering the log book from 10 days ago. PR's in incline db press, rack chins, and t-bar rows came today. Smith shoulder press and CGBP are basically back to my old personal bests (dropped weight previously to ensure perfect form). Friday should be fun because I'm lifting w/ my workout partner who is still in school (he's an absolute beast) after we go to see Bigger, Faster, Stronger in downtown Chicago.
    Energy: Great. I was laying on my couch before my workout dosing in and out. I decided it was time to do something with the day and popped my Core ZAP. It was a steady uphill climb from there and my energy is still skying.
    Focus / Well Being: I am very focused in the gym. I don't really talk to anyone as is but when I'm there my focus and confidence are really apparent. I struggled on the 1st reps of the 2nd and 3rd mini sets for Incline DB Press because I went with no spotter. Each rep took like a grueling 5 seconds for the positive portion but it was still all business.
    Gym Performance: Amazing. Adding 6 reps to a DB movement and dropping the spotter is something I've never done. I hope this stays apparent. I dominated every portion of my logbook from last week despite doing LI cardio every morning. Good things to come.

    The pictures are taken from my camera phone because it was all that was available and it masks some detail. With that, I believe I was still carrying a bit more fat and was around 12 maybe in that picture if I had to guess.

    Thanks man. Means a lot coming from you. I wanted to let you know you have my respect for a great physique and obviously paying your dues. It is weird though, strength comes a lot easier than me than mass. I have no desire really to ever step on stage but I still would like to eventually walk around lookin like a fitness model. The strength I would say comes easy but far form natural. I was 6'0 150 lbs skinny fat when I got my liscense at 16. I had been working out too and was a top baseball and basketball player at my high school. I just keep payin the dues because Rome wasn't built in a day .

    Popped out of the womb and was expected to play. My dad and brother both played collegiate ball, pitched, and got drafted to double A. Times weren't right though so they couldn't support themselves / their larger family and didn't go.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 4..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline HS Press - 250 x 8-2-2 (up 10 lbs but down 2 reps)

    [youtube]_Olp_YdybG4[/youtube]

    HS Shoulder Press - 160 x 10-4-3 (up 10 lbs same reps)

    Smith Reverse Grip Bench - 225 x 8-4-3 (up 10 lbs down 1 rep)

    [youtube]2I2uDQb_AX4[/youtube]

    WG Rack Chins - bw+55 x 13-6-4 (same weight up 8 reps)

    HS High Row - 270 x 10-5-3 (up 1 rep but really focused on form)

    Days Thoughts: I had a long day leading up to this point. I'm taking Calculus this summer and its a 3 hour course. Total borefest. I also had a hard time registering and still have some things to figure out money wise, and people are being very hard. Overall pretty frustrating. However, all was killed in the gym. I squashed PR's again and took leaps and bounds in strength. I wore a Dry Fit shirt today as you can see from the videos so sweat wasn't as apparent as if I was wearing cotton.
    Energy: Going into the gym, nothing special. After popping zap I was like my usual mad man.
    Focus / Well Being: I was in the zone focus wise as usual. The well being effects are becoming more and more pronounced. I was just in a great mood the whole time I was there and on my way home.
    Gym Performance: Setting PR's left and right with very little breakdown in form. Works for me!

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 5..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    Drag Curl- 95 x 12-6-5 (actually did these on the wrong day . Went up in reps from the last time I did them though, I'll be switching this to Spider Curls next time)

    [youtube]7Y734wE4wQA[/youtube]

    Rope Hammer Curl- 130 x 12-7-6 (up 10 lbs down 2 reps)

    Leg Press Calf Extension- 270 (slow negatives with held stretches in bottom position)

    Sumo Leg Press- 370x30 (up 10 lbs, and OW)

    Cybex Leg Press- 720x6 / 270x20 (the 720x6 felt heavy and I'm going to drop the weight to ensure great form. I had been going to about 90 with my legs for the 720x6 and it puts a lot of pressure on my knee. The 270x20 I basically had my knees touching my chin on every rep and I'm going to do my heavier sets like that now as well)

    Days Thoughts: A little pissed at myself that I assumed I put in a workout and did the wrong one for my primary bicep move. It's not the end of the world though. Another great workout today.
    Energy: It was great.. I'm spent after the 20 rep set and I had the energy to do 20 minutes of cardio which will be nice for recovery and soreness.
    Focus / Well Being: Very focused in the gym. Apparently a little too focused since I did the wrong bicep move .
    Gym Performance: Solid again, going to humble myself and drop the weight for leg press though and make sure the knees go to the chin. It will result in a better pump and since I like atg squats it should come pretty natural.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 6..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Hammer Strength Flat Press - 250 x 8-2-1 (up 10 lbs down 2 reps, one of the sides slipped out of my hand and threw the workout off.. still good performance)

    DB Shoulder Press - 55's x 12-5-3 (last time was 50's by 8 more reps than I did today. A bit discouraged but I think part of it relates to the slipping on the flat press and over exertion of my shoulders. Still added a lot of weight though)

    Machine Dips - 200 x 12-5-4 (up 40 lbs and 3 reps.. really pumped me up)

    HS Pulldowns - 150 x 12-7-6 (up 6 reps.. great form here.. really accomplished what I wanted too)

    Rack Pulls (below knee)- 500x6 (up 25 lbs and a rep) - 405x8 with additional ROM

    Days Thoughts: Really was pissed about losing 2 reps on flat bench despite the increase in 10 lbs. Ego blow lol.. and it slipped out of my hand which f'd that and shoulder press up. Still a great increase in weight.
    Energy: Fabulous.. usually after rack pulls I'm spent but I still managed about 20 minutes of cardio.
    Focus / Well Being: I was in the zone again, improving a ton from what I did the time before.
    Gym Performance: Everything keeps moving up.. while my weight is going down!

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 7..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    DB Curls - 45's x 13-6-4 (just switched to these, HUGE PUMP)

    Hammer Curls - 45's x 11-5-4 (same as last time but I think it had to do with the new DB curls because they were exhausting)

    Standing Calf Extension - 180 x 9 (slow negative + stretch at bottom)

    Leg Curls - 140 x 7 (same as last time, may sub these out but not sure for what)

    Reverse Power Squats - 360 x 4 (knee has hurt on and off but these felt solid)

    Leg Press - 270 x 20 (made sure knees touched shoulders every rep, way lighter than last time, i'll be moving up)

    Days Thoughts: Loved the DB curls, really got a nice pump. Next time I do these hopefully I go from 23 overall reps to 30 and then the week after move up to 50's for 20+ reps.
    Energy: My energy is incredible. Normally I hate even stretching after my widowmaker for legs. Today I did multiple ab sets, some side planks, and then 25 minutes of cardio.
    Focus / Well Being: Very well focused and it shows during cardio. I actually don't seem to mind it post workout when I take zap.
    Gym Performance: Great as usual. Finally becoming happy with where my abs are at. Going to keep up the intense cardio once or twice per day.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 8..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline DB Press- Rushed my work set. I paid dearly and as a result screwed myself over for chest and shoulders. Just did some various work to try to compensate.

    Smith Shoulder Press- This was all out of wack after incline db press as well. Really a bit pissed about this.

    Smith CGBP - 215 x 7-2-2 (up 5 lbs, down 3 reps)

    Rack Chins - bw+60 x 12-6-5 (up 10 lbs and 2 reps)

    CG Cable Row- 220 x 6, 150 x 10



    Days Thoughts: Well I'm furious I rushed my warmup and screwed myself for chest and shoulders. Then to top my day off.. my gym banned freeweight tbar rows in the corner and were goin to make me use a machine. However, the machine's balance is weird and I switched to CG Cable Row instead.
    Energy: Was very good as usual.
    Focus / Well Being: Good focus and well being after the initial downfall of my chest and shoulders.
    Gym Performance: Again chest and shoulders were fukkin awful. Really still upset that I wasted a day of progression on chest and shoulders. However my lats were by far the strongest they've ever been. Triceps were pretty good as well.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 9..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Biís / Forearm / Lower

    Ez Bar Preacher Curls - 90 x 13-5-3 (up 5 lbs and 4 reps)

    Reverse Grip Cable Curls - 90 x 15-10-8 (up 20 lbs and 5 reps)

    Seated Calf Extensions

    SLDL - 385 x 5 (up 20 lbs down 1 rep)

    Squats - 235 x 7 (up 10 lbs) / Leg Press 290x20 (every rep knees touched shoulders, super deep form, up 20 lbs)

    Days Thoughts: Wow just wow. Started off ugly, a fire at my gym and they blew the circuit. It was closed. I got to lift at another gym in the chain like a mile away for free (typically it costs more). The one I lifted at today was more of a health club than gym, but I still made due. There's no place like home, but PR's were shattered and iron is iron.
    Energy: Super, did my workout and cardio, thats just a testimony that I will do cardio after a widowmaker. Im like popeye in the gym.
    Focus / Well Being: Great day and focus. Cubs won which was awesome.. in addition to zap's effects.
    Gym Performance: Amazing day. Everything got totally crushed. Adding weight and reps to curls is almost unheard of for me, but I'm super stoked. This made up for my ****ty lift Wednesday, but it proved to me my CNS is still in tact which is great.

    Haha its been great since I'm a cubs fan finally silencing the socks fans. However, Edmonds isn't washed up, he just choked for San Diego on purpose as a masterful plan to get released and picked up by the cubs . The sweep would be nice though. My girlfriend got me tickets to next weekends game at The Cell so hopefully I make it back, I'm willing to risk life to go watch my Cubs play haha.

    Zappin PRs with CORE ZAP

    Workout 10..
    Dosage: 4 caps
    Upper

    Incline HS Press - 260 x 7-2-1 (up 10 lbs down 2 reps)

    [youtube]s2wBm_ALb3Q[/youtube]

    HS Shoulder Press - 170 x 8-3-3 (up 10 lbs down 3 reps)

    Smith Reverse Grip Bench - 235 x 8-3-2 (up 10 lbs down 2 reps)

    [youtube]LLqqgv7AWRc[/youtube]

    WG Rack Chins - bw+75 x 10-6-4 (up 20 lbs down 3 reps)

    [youtube]koQRmVlYe0I[/youtube]

    HS Seated Low Row - 280 x 8-4-3 (up 10 lbs down 3 reps)

    Days Thoughts: Pretty solid workout. Weights are getting really heavy now. I think I lost reps party due to the last workout I had for these parts SUCKING. However, adding 10 lbs for 2 or 3 reps is a trade I'll take almost any day.
    Energy: Clean.. and great, the usual.
    Focus / Well Being: Very focused again, the WG Rack Chin jump was insane. Felt good all day, did cardio after.
    Gym Performance: Great again. Even with the loss of reps adding 10 lbs across the board is great. Coming off such a ****ty workout from my last upper may have effected progress here too, but the gains were still great.
