Yesterday I made a post about my frustration with all the biased reviews of all the supplement products because of Sales Reps screwing with legitimate people wanting honest reviews. So I decided to take the plunge and review a product myself and tell the masses what I thought of it and what gains I get out of it.
So, after much reading and sorting through numerous reviews I decided to do an 8 week cycle of , which i started this morning.
A little about myself, I am a 35 yr old male from Spring TX. I have lifted weights on and off since my twenties. I used to have a good habit of hitting the gym hard for 6 months then quit going because the ladies were giving me the attention I wanted. I would start hitting the gym again once my pants started to fit too snug or I got disgusted with the way I was looking. I had a life changing event a few years ago and those days are now over. I was involved in a car wreck while driving under the influence of alcohol and was just released in October. So, i have been hitting the gym hard ever since and been trying to get my life back in order. Enough about that though.
Okay here are the stats that I can give you at the start of this cycle. I took these today at the gym. I used a little electronic device that the trainers use on their clients to get my BMI and my BodyFat%.
Here is what I can tell you about my frame/size:
Height: 5' 11 1/2"
Weight: 204 lbs
Im sorry to say this but I really dont know what my max squat or bench press is. I train by myself so I usually dont have a spotter and try to always concentrate on proper form and making a solid contraction while performing the exercise.
Okay, as far as these go please be patient with me and I will take measruments in the next few days and post them to this thread and to my profile, for monitoring purposes.
Supplements I am stacking with:
I will not use Brand names because it's not important and I am not trying to endorse one company or another. The only reason I am using PES' name is for those people seeking an honest review.
The cheapest I can buy at the nutrition store, usually they run a sale every month on overstock items.
I buy my micronized creatine at HEB.
I drink an NO/CAFFEINE loaded preworkout.
I drink one amino acid drink about an hour into my workout at the gym and thats usually the only one I drink throughout the day.
4 scrambled eggs, two turkey sausage patties and a small bowl of granole cereal.
Protein shake (after workout)
One large grilled chicken breast with rice.
One large grilled chicken breast w/ barbecue sauce (no rice)
Usually depends on if I work that night or not (either a solid 3 course meal ,carbs protein fat veggies, "if Im not working" or a protein bar if I am)
Either:2, 4oz cans of tuna or another grilled chicken breast (no carbs)
Typically another protein shake to curb my hunger in the evening.
MY BODY DOESNT REACT WELL TO CARBOHYDRATES SO I HAVE TO KEEP THEM DOWN. I ALSO WORK AT A PIZZA JOINT SO IM NOT GOING TO LIE. I EAT A SLICE OR TWO USUALLY WHILE I AM AT WORK.
DAY 1 EVALUATION:
Other than a slight increase in appetite that's about all I can really say. The increase in appetite wasnt overwhelming but it was a little bit more than normal. I have heard of guys sweating a whole lot or feeling nausea but I didnt experience this, which is surprising considering I did legs this morning.
Thanks for reading! I hope you enjoy!
