    Exclamation AP, Pslin & Pfull - Initial Review


    Qualitative:
    1. Noticeably, 3 caps of Powerfull prior to my workout (30 minutes) along side my preworkout/nitric supplement and I am focus, "in the zone" so to speak.
    2. Appetite is noticeably up despite a slight change in calories.
    3. Vascularity is noticeably up. While most people will say, "no duh” the repetition protocol that I am employing is low rep (4-6 reps). With that said, being 10.5% BF (approximately) and getting great pumps while doing 4-6 reps. Well, I think that speaks for the product (Pslin in this case).

    Quantitative:
    1. My strength has improved. Either the addition of weight while yielding the same number of reps and/or the addition of reps while using the same weight. Also of interest, I recently hit new maxes, SO an increase after recently maxing is GREAT!
    2. Bodyweight and BF% have remained static, despite the increase in calories!

    As I head into my second week of this stack I am hoping to dial in my diet even more to maximize the potential of these supplements.

    Here is a typical day in my diet from the last week:
    1. AP (meal 15-20 minutes later)
    whey/milk/oat shake (approximately 75 grams of carbs)

    2. whey/milk shake

    3. AP (meal 15-20 minutes later)
    whey/milk/oat shake (approximately 75 grams of carbs)

    4. whey/milk shake

    5. Pslin (meal 15-20 minutes later) [pre-workout]
    whey/milk/oat shake (approximately 75 grams of carbs)

    ***I have been workout out 2-2.5 hours after taking P-slin. Why 2.5 hours? No logical argument here, just poor timing. After reading all the Pslin posts, I am trying to hit the gym 1.5-2 hours.

    ***powerfull and preworkout/nitric taken 30 minutes prior to workout.

    6. AP (meal 15-20 minutes later) [post-workout]
    whey/grape juice/oat shake (approximately 100 grams of carbs)

    7. protein mixture with green veggies
    ***powerfull taken 30 minutes prior to this meal.

    UPDATED macronutrient breakdown:
    Calories-3,145
    Protein-331 g (42%)
    Carbs-355 g (46%)
    Fat-40 g (11%)

    32 years old, 204lbs, 10.5% BF at 5'11".

    Lifting 5 days a week according to MaxOT.

    Auxiliary supplements:
    4 tabs or 4g vitamin C
    2 tabs multi-vitamin
    2 tabs B complex
    3-6 caps fish oil
    2 tabs glucosamine/chondroitin (joint)
    8-12 tabs multi-enzyme formula

    That's a lot of shakes! Any specific reason for so many shakes or is it just what seems to work best for you?

    Do you get in any healthy fats (like fish oil) during the day?

    Yeah, I know that is a lot of shakes.

    Four reasons, in order of preference:
    1. I am lazy.
    2. Economically, it is cheaper than purchasing chicken, lean beef, fish etc.
    3. Until work is done, I don't (most days) have time to sit down and consume a meal.
    4. This WAS/IS the primary reason, I find it hard to consume enough calories in a hypocaloric state. The shakes allow me to squeez in extra calories while NOT getting bloated.

    I also consume a multi-vitamin, multi-b vitamin, vitamin C and fish oil caps (range between 3-6 caps per day). Lastly, I also put almonds in my shakes, but I was trying to maximize my carb intake while minimizing the fat gain, SO I subtracted some almonds and added oats.

    Thanks for the input!

    For the coming week I will be altering macronutriets slightly.

    Macronutriet breakdown:
    1. Protein 303 grams-35%
    2. Carbs 417 grams-49%
    3. Fats 56 grams-16%
    4. Total calories have increased by 270 to a total of 3415 quality calories.

    Decreases (daily):
    1. 2 scoops of whey.

    Increases (daily):
    1. From 1 serving of veggies to 3 (a new high for me).
    2. From 4 cups of oats to 5.
    3. Add 1 oz of raw almonds.

    I would like to note that this would bring my total carb count for Pslin/AP meals to 100+ grams. This includes regular meals, preworkout and postworkout. I don't think I have ever consumes so many quality calories from carbohydrates!
