  1. Is anyone NOT responding to Prime?


    The Prime logs are impressive and I'm happy for everyone.
    Everyone except me. Two weeks in and nothing. I'm to the point of double dosing now and I'll finish the first bottle and move into a second bottle at double dose just to give the product a chance. I know there are non responders to just about everything but so far I am very disappointed.

    I'm hoping that it's just taking longer to kick in for me but I'm afraid this it's going to fall short for me like most supplements do.


  2. Damn that sucks mine is doing its job
    How long have you been on it? Have you upped your protein?

    Sorry to hear this man.

    Thirteen days.
    Yea, I've upped protein and calories. I know people will ask about my training and diet. Thing is, when a supplement works, it works.
    In contrast, for two of those days I used a core zap sample, and man I had two awesome workouts with serious PRs.

    Why are you awake? What time is it where you're at?

  4. Again that sucks
    Too bad, because its not cheap stuff
    You are the first non responder. I think I would have upped dosages just to see if it helps

    Its daytime in Norway and I have a week off work
    Do you work night shift? if so, welcome to the club.

  5. I tried the 3x3 loading dosage that was recommended for the first week and saw results within the first week. However returning to 2x3 its like i'm not taking it at all, no real affect.

    I've got a sinus infection at the moment so i've stopped working out, and therefore, stopped most of my supps. I'll try 3x3 again for a longer period next time.

  6. I'm about a week in. I feel alright, maybe a little better, but I haven't noticed anything in terms of weight gain/strength gain.

    Then again, I'm only about half as far as you are, so it might be an issue of simply building up to it. After all, USP themselves have stated that the "money week" is around 3-4.

    Only time will tell, but right now I'm not feeling much of anything really.

    Yea, I work 5p-5a (foods). It sucks. I had the day off.

    I don't want to be a non responder. I'm sick of being a non responder. Call me Mr. Non Responder. Mr. Non Responder not happy.

  8. I'm only about 4-5 days in and I don't real feel anything. Maybe a slight increase in overall mood, but again I expect something by this time next week. Luckily I got it for $30, but people who paid $55 may turn out to be dissapointed. One thing to note is that I seem to maybe lost a slight amount of weight in my waist. More to come.

  9. I was very scepetical at first, but Prime worked for me within 3 days. I am now on day 11; strength is up, my body feels jacked and a pump that is with me all day and it's only getting better. But i am doing 3-3-3 in stead of 2-2-2. I will remain doing so, untill i reach the 6-week mark.

    Too bad it doesn't work for you bro, maybe you should have started with a heavy dose?

  10. I hope this doesn't happen to me... My son is responding very well so hopefully it's in the genetics. It has to happen to some people though, nothing works for everyone when it comes to herbals.

    what would upping protein have to do with it. in the write up it appears everyone had success with their same diet. out of curiousity - are there any diet recommendations when on this?

    Not just with USP but all herbal products, not so strange at all. I have also noticed that many that don't respond to one herbal product don't respond to others as well. I am a creatine non-responder... jeez that's strange...

    DW , you really like usp bro, good for you their products work on your cycles but what you are basically saying is that if herbals don't work on you , don't spend your money in prime, I don't think it works that way, and don't forget that our mental attitude towards a supp can make all the difference too

    That's not what I'm saying, I am saying that some don't repond to herbals in general. Some respond to some not others and some respond well to most. If you don't respond to something that isn't strange it's normal. It's the case with all herbals, USP deals in herbs... do the math lol. I am just saying it's not fair to single out one company for non-response when it is an across the board reaction to herbals.

    I also like PAL, Appnut, RPN, Nutra, oh and anabolic inovations. What I really like is good herbal supplements. The better I get to know my body the more effective they seem to be for me.

    Well there was no special diet recommendations, only my own feeling. I got so damn fast hungry and when upping protein it was better, felt stronger In the gym too.

  17. Im seeing descent results but Im going to bump my dosage up to 3-3-3 on the third week and go from there.

    Just to be fair to the supplement the quick results are surprising us at USPlabs but please give it a fair amount of time before writing it off 1-2 weeks in is not a fair amount of time to judge any supplement worth.

    In the write up the 3-4 week is the money week. I'm dosing 2x2x2 down from 3x3x3 and do not feel much difference in effect after the intial loading phase.

  19. Im about 2 weeks in and havent noticed anything. Im in maintenance mode calorie wise so i dont expect to gain weight but im not feeling the pumps or the euphoria or pretty much anything at all. Im going to start a cut in another week so we'll see if it helps me there.

    I guess i could try 3-3-3 but the bottle will only last 2 weeks at that dose and at $55 a bottle um no thanks....

    In beta testing most did not feel anything 2 weeks in but week 3 or 4 should give you a great idea and no need to dose 3x3x3 if money is an issue.

    First dose with morning protein and pre-workout supplements. Second and third dose with meals.

    I will definitely be giving this product a chance because I have three more bottles!

    I am a non responder to activate extreme, x factor, bad a$$ mass, and dthc. Those are all great products with awesome feed back. I don't even respond to epistane (just got tired, no gains whatsoever).
    I won't blame any company or product for MY lack of response. I was just really looking for a non PH because with the older PHs (1-AD and superdrol) the sides (fatigue!) were terrible, I gained a good amount of fat, and much of the gains faded over time.

    I will continue Prime at least through the second bottle. We shall see....

    even along with a good bodybuilding buldking diet or eat normal and just up calories protein? are you working with a good amount of protien and carbs in grams to your body wieght and gaining goals?

  27. I wish I could go longer than 4 weeks, but I only bought one bottle and really can't afford $60 shipped for another.

    A lot of products are like this. A third love it, and third get nothing, and a third get so so results. Kind of like pharmaceuticals.

    One thing that drives me nuts though: I see people taking a TON of supplements. You know currently taking: this, that, another thing, and this, and that and that. Okay my thing is this, if you really look at a lot of people's reviews they claim they gained 4-5 lbs on this, and 3 lbs on this, and 10lbs on this. Okay, so if all that stuff they are taking works, then how come all these guys aren't 220 lbs and benching over 300? Hmmm.... Also look back through the history of a LOT of the guys on this board, and they've been logging different supplements and stacks for a while and claiming how awesome such and such is but.... (i know, run on sentence) how come when you check their stats from 3-4 years ago they are the same size now? HOW CAN YOU GAIN all that muscle from this and that and that other product all this time and yet, you are the same size?

    Believe me, I want supplements to work. But so many of the people on this board are spending a TON of money and are making the same gains as the guys at my gym WHO TAKE NOTHING.

    I refuse to convince myself something is working when it is not.

    If I gained a pound or two of muscle on a product in a month, I would be happy. Why? Because gee whiz, 10+ lbs of growth a year will add up after a while! But for all you taking umteen products and you weigh 2 lbs more than you did 2 years ago?!?!.... Where is it getting you?

  29. Can never see myself spending $55 on a 3 weeks supply of herbs. The TNT stack > Prime

  30. Well some stats like weight could remain the same but the lean body mass should change. If you are cutting though a lot of people lose a lot of their lean mass and then have gain it back again. My lean body mass has really gone up in my late forties simply because I've done more recomp than strict dieting and haven't gone too lean. Herbals to work but they may be quite subtle at times. Prime claims to be less subtle, I sure am hoping it is for me.
