    ur probably just tired. prime is not a hormonel product. get 8 hours of rest (go to bed early, not late) and give yourself a few days off from the gym if you feel like u need it.

    Thanks

    Shut down (as in your thread title)?! Over-training, probably, but definitely no shut down, in the classical sense, from PRIME!

    Yea thanks , maybe I'm not shut down just training too much, but it feels the same. Right now I'm training 5 times a week, 1 muscle group per day. The workouts and pumps are great, each workout is about 90min. Thinking about Deisel Test or something.

    I believe I overtrained while on Prime. I was on an HST cycle while on Prime and on my last week of Prime and 5th week of HST, I felt tired and unmotivated when I'd be in the gym. My strength was way up though. I think it was my fault though cuz on my second week, I started to throw in more exercises cuz I felt like it just wasn't enough. When I finished the bottle, I took a week off and went back to a 4 day split and now I'm good.

    Sounds like you exhausted yourself from your workouts...

    what's your lifting scheme? How much rest are you getting per night/day? And, what are your nutrient intakes? water/juices?

    Are you taking in alcohol while during weekends, nights, days?

    PRIME keeps you in the gym so you have to be aware and almost force yourself to go home. The CNS cannot keep up with the muscular endurance.

    I should develope a CNS cocktail specific for PRIME.

    If anything I feel more libido than normal.

    I'm keeping my workouts to the same length as normal although I usually feel I could go 2x as long.

    Apparently, the challenge is to avoid over-training! And you seem to be doing a good job!

    Never got shut down at all. actually the opposite occured. For me I did the 5 days a week routine and always hit it hard. I didn't over train it's just the way it makes you feel. Dense, thick, just got through workin out feelin most of the day. Which makes you think your tired. Hell, blow some stims up later in the day

    If PRIME was shutting down your natural Testosterone production (by whatever mechanism) there would be a few 'tell-tale' symptoms; most notably, a change in Testicular size and Consistency.

    Feeling worn out may be a consequence of increased volume (total repetitions) or total weight. Have you increased either, while not concomitantly increasing your Total kCal intake? This would most definitely produce feelings of lethargy, fogginess, and lack of motivation.

    Yeah lol. I get home late enough at around 7:30 or 8:00 PM so I don't want to work out any longer even if I can.

    True. I was aware of the possibility of overtraining, but I felt so damn good on Prime that I didn't think I would. Things I did notice while on Prime and loved where increase in appetite, increased strength, intense pumps, gained 5lbs and slight recomp with a not so good diet the last 2 weeks.

    Recommend a combo of Focus Dirt, Rhodiola, Ashwagandha etc. to help recover the CNS.

    I dont know about 'shutdown' but i do feel tired and/or lethargic if i'm simply doing nothing. Once i have to do something that requires a little energy then its there and ready to go, but its like, if i sit down or relax for just a minute, my body and brain goes into 'standby' mode and all i want to do is have a snooze. However i am on 9 per day, which is more than the recommended dose.

    Essay, just so we are on the same page, this is how the term shutdown is normally interpreted:

    'The cessation of natural hormone production in lieu of the introduction of exogenous (from without the body) sources'.

    I believe you simply mean worn-out, though.

    I experienced a slight bit of lethargy on my first week of 9/day; however, I countered that with an increase of ~500kCal and the feeling normalized. These feelings are your body's indication of the necessity for fuel!

    This, I had no idea what to attribute to. My appetite has grown considerably while on Prime. But so have the intensity of my workouts (my log shows a remarkable second-bottle endurance increases way beyond my usual capacity). I have felt worn out lately, but then again I've been working 12 hour hardcore coding days in front of a computer. That'll break anyone down...

    Pro-Hormone like symptoms? Haha, I would assume the one necessary condition of 'Pro-Hormone-like symptoms' would be a cessation - or at the very least attenuation - of natural hormone production; obviously, our Tester data did not reflect this.

    While some undetermined androgenic action may be at the heart of PRIME, one thing is for certain: It is not at the cost of normal hormone production. Definitively, PRIME is not a PH and/or steroid.
