    dont call it Yellow Gold call it Yummy Gold!!


    Just got the Yellow Gold in. Ok I couldnít help myself and tasted it as soon as I got in the door. It isnít THAT bad. I put together most of my own supps and Iíve had a lot worse. I JUST took my 1st dose (sorry I couldnít help myself) itís for my postworkout meal. I experimented different ways of taking it. Tried the powder directly on my tougue but I think that would stain my teeth hah. Tried it in cold water that was ok. But the best and easiest and most palatable was in warm/hot water. That made a big part of the taste disappear. I did it as a shot but I didnít have to wash it down afterwards haha. It tastes kinda like curried aspirin . I will cap my doses for work but will save my caps and just take it straight since it isnt so bad to me.

    Will update more after it has had time to kick in Öif it can kick in for me that is

    Omg!!




    Whats going on? Something that works on me? Im confused! Hah

    Anyways, yea I took it postworkout (I just got the stuff) with some eggs and half a loaf of bread covered in olive oil and garlic. I waited 15mins then chowed down. About 20 after it felt like someone was pumping air into all my muscles my chest got hit 1st. After I got used to this I noticed that any muscle group even if just used a little bit swelled up. Example, my traps are swollen from typing this out! I donít know if this is good, but my lower back swelled up just from walking and standing haha. One side effect I have noticed is that my face feels flushed and warm. That and Iím hungry again. Itís really affecting my traps and entire back a lot. I think all my blood is in my back because I cant get an arm pump.

    sorry, It could be from eating allot of turmeric already. Thatís one of my theories on why itís working on me! My body isnít treating it as a foreign substance because its used to it I even dont mind the aftertaste well...Im kinda enjoying that as well

    Second dose was taken at 6:00am, ate at 6:15. Sadly, Iím not feeling the effects I felt yesterday. Perhaps I only get that effect postworkout or something.

    I wiill update more later on during the day. Today is an OFF day which is usually no carb day but Im too curious about the product

    Looking back on my 1st dose yesterday of Yellow Gold I found it pretty stimulating. I stayed up quite a few hours more then I usually do. The opposite happened today. For my 3rd dose I took it 15mins before hitting a Chinese buffet. I think all the high gi carbs interacts with this in a weird way. Within 20mins of eating I wanted to take a nap and was quite tired. Itís been a few hours since then and I still feel really tired but that can be just from the entire day taking its toll on me.

    I hear ya on that one, Rivet. It's Friday though, and I'm getting a good night's sleep tonight. Too soon for me to tell if its the YG or just life in general that has me tired out right now. I guess we'll just wait and see!

    Can't say that I can because I really haven't thought about it. Let me get back to you on lethargy after high GI intake. I'll see if I can ingest some on seperate days and at different times for objectivity's sake.

    Unhappy


    Sorry to announce that besides my initial reaction to the product I havenít experiences any other positive aspects from it since. I took it pre (15mins before meal) and post (same) today and experienced nothing. No extra pump at the gym and no pump or stimulation for no reason like on my initial dose.

    haha

    For anyone reading its not the products fault. Its me, people who know me online know that I dont respond to much. Its not diet etc etc because you dont need a good diet to be able to respond to 4grams of phenibut (I dont). If usp wants I could double my dose but that would give me perhaps 2-2.5 weeks instead of 4weeks.

    Today was chest day, didn't notice anything yet again. My incline BB press has gone up 5lbs but thats constant to how it has been increasing before starting up YG.


    Post workout measurements

    Pre YG: Chest - 43.5''

    Week 1 on Yellow Gold: Chest - 43.5''

    I wonder what the variable was to my initial reaction to YG.

    Update!


    I found the variable. YG only seems to have any effect on me during POSTWORKOUT dosing and meal. My postworkout measurement said 43.5 (taken after my very last rep) well now after taking my YG postworkout dose and meal my chest swelled up to 44íí. I even felt it slowly fill up like some pumping air into my back and chest kind just like how it worked the 1st time which was postworkout.

    Iím noticing YG is keeping me a little too regular. I would really be happy with this but a lot of it is water. I take in a lot of water so I should be ok. If I wasnít losing so much water this would be a very positive thing as I hate being bloated with food. Its not each time Im losing alot of water however so it should not be a a problem.

    This is so weird that a few people are so regular after YG. I really haven't noticed a difference. I guess that's just one of those things.

    Didnít notice any difference during my workout. No extra pump postworkout either but thatís probably because it was leg day and itís such a large group.

    Legs pre YG postworkout: 25íí

    Legs week 1 YG postworkout: 25íí

    Didnít notice much today. I was really hungry about 15mins after taking YG postworkout today. Had a huge postworkout meal and was still had a big appetite afterwards. Had a great shoulder workout but Im not seeing anything more then I usually do in the gym.


    Edit: I usually get pretty bad ďgoodĒ doms in my chest 2 days after it has been worked out. Well thatís today and the doms have been reduced A LOT, I can barely feel itÖ

    Friday isnít a gym day. Saturday is back day and I donít measure that. Sunday I will take new pics and AM weight. I have noticed Iíve gained some weight. I usually weigh around 188lbs during the day but I just noticed that Iím now 190lbs at the same time of the day. Daytime waist size is still 34íí (33.5 in the morn). Canít wait to check out my AM weigh on Sunday.

    Edit: Ok, just did the ďflex testĒ for fun. Its been a week since I started this and Im already noticing more density to my biceps. I was flexing my right one it became pretty much rock hard. Yes Im taking in large amounts of water (anymore and I would have to quit my job so I could spend my time in the bathroom). But my bicep got to the point of ďalmostĒ cramping (it got sore for a few mins). Also feeling this same sensation creeping up in my calves as well.


    I just found a new way to eat my night time cottage cheese. Take the tub, drop the cottage cheese into a blender add 1/4 rounded teaspoon of dill. Blend until it looks like sour cream. Makes a great dip

    Pre YG measurements :Arms Ė 16íí

    Week 1 on YG: Arm - 16.14íí

    Not a huge difference but I could really feel the difference. Alternating DB curls still on the rise

    I decided to take the picture today instead of Sunday. My back shows some improvement. Stomach remains the same with the same morning measurements of 33.5íí. Morning weight went up 2lbs from 185 to 187 which seems to be consistent with what Iíve been seeing for the past couple of day.

    Post workout measurements recap:

    Pre YG Week 1 YG
    Chest - 43.5" Chest -44íí
    Arms - 16" Arms Ė 16.14íí
    Waist - 34" Waist Ė 34íí
    Legs -25" Legs Ė 25íí

    Week 1 Stomach

    Week 1 Back

    In my opinion, that increase in the arm size could be temporary cell volumization. However, with that density you talk of, in on week, that increase is significant. Think if you were to take this product for many weeks?

    Thats my opinion as well

    I would like to point out to being an extreme non responder to everything. I have never had a cell volumizer work on me (Creatine, NO2 etc) so this is all new to me. I hope it keeps working in this fashion. If the price is right on this product I can see it being usefull year round. I wonder how this product would work out for someone who responds to creatine, it could possible help with creatine uptake.

    Perhaps USPLabs can ship to me all the tasty powder he cant cap! haha
