  1. Adrenalean Review


    I've been using Designer Supplements Adrenalean for almost two weeks now. I honestly can't give much feedback at this point on overall fatloss, however tha euphoric effects are quite pleasing. In fact, it feels more like a nootropic formula than anything else with consistant focus and smooth energy that lasts on average 4.5 hours. Because it's not very stim heavy IMHO, I find little to NO crash with this product.

    Adrenalean + Primaforce Durablast when taken together is an even greater combo with which I've also stumbled upon over tha last few days. Recommended dose of each almost doubles tha life of Adrenalean and is very reminiscent of old Stim X samples I've tried without that uber-cracked feeling.

    If you are in tha market for a cognitive fat burner, you'll want to give this one a spin.

  3. Whachu know bout Earl Simmons? ;)






    Take it for what it's worth, my birth was a blessing
    Sent to live and die, on earth as a lesson
    We each have a star, all we have to do is find it
    Once you do, everyone who sees it will be blinded

    They'll tell you that you're bright, and say you have a future
    When you turn your back, same cats'll try to shoot ya
    Niggaz ain't ****, I can live on both sides of the fence
    Look at what you do, when you talk, see what you really meant...
    That's what I thought, them niggaz was bluffin
    They talk all day but say, nothin
    It gets so dark, haze so intense
    Since this first rain it's like it's rained ever since...
    Never got paid for a rhyme but I flow,
    Never got a plate on time but I grow,

    Live your life, STAY on the line but I go.
    Went from doin crime to bein kind cause I know!

    [Chorus]

    I'm gon' live forever, I'm never gon' die
    Only thing I fear is that I'm never gon' fly
    Carry my weight but I'm never gon' cry

    **** I tell y'all niggaz straight cause I'm never gon' lie



    What is about who I am that makes me unforgettable
    What it is about what I've done that makes it so incredible
    "More money, more problems" -- well the fame was worse...
    I reached out for love and what came back was thirst.

    Blessed with the curse niggaz don't hear me
    Niggaz don't hear me, Y'ALL NIGGAZ, don't hear me
    What'd I just say? "Nigga g'head" - you see that?
    You gots to FEEL ME to catch what I'm sayin, BELIEVE THAT!

    But leave that, alone...
    We gon' make a nigga wanna be at, your home,
    Oh you kinda quiet with the heat at, your dome,
    If the dog got he's gonna bring back a bone,
    cause we got the chrome!
    This is what I live for, or die for
    I'm the nigga with the high score, you try for,
    What you niggaz wanna lie for? It changes nothin
    I'm true for cats, yet some strangers bluffin.

    [Chorus]

    Now if I take what he gave me and I, use it right
    In other words if I listen and, use the light
    Then what I say will remain here, after I'm gone
    Still here, on the strength of a song, I live on
    No second-guessin on what I stood for
    , I was good for
    stoppin niggaz from killin each other in the hood war
    Comin through showin love, throwin up
    Them cats not throwin love, you know whassup
    Dark Man baby, that's my name
    and I gots to be the realest nigga up in this game
    Cause ain't no shame, they don't make em like this no more
    Real to the core, big heart but built for war
    I stand for what I believe in
    Even if what I believe in stops me from breathin

    Relatives grievin, but I ain't went nowhere
    Listen to the song... I'm right there!

    I really pushed myself tonight which is great, but tomorrow I have to go to a mod care program and do consumer satisfaction surveys. Tha program itself is rather spread out unlike my own where I'll have to walk several blocks to get to each townhouse. While this should be good for additional fatloss, it's poor planning on my part as my legs will be pretty beat-up...

    Speaking of employment, I'm hopeful to be blessed with a new job oportunity soon. This one caught me by surprise and I'm not even sure if it's a valid one as I just saw a promo piece for this company and now have this overwhelming urge to inquire about employment. Considering this is rare for me to dive into something so quickly, and realizing what this ideally could mean for me, I can't help but believe God is calling.

    Through that same message, I've stumbled upon a website www.richiebrace.com that is more along tha lines of orthotics I've been looking for... They've partnered up with a lab SOLO which does foot scanning like what I was recommended to look for in a Chiro. Best part is, they have a semi-local affliliate in York.

    Below is ultimately what I would like to accomplish:

    Far too often many attribute this to luck, coincidence, fate, right place right time, planetary alignment, karma, numerology, astrology, ones own will, ones own ability and a plethora of reasons get credit. Yet that same group fail to recognize He has complete sovereignty over all those other potential causes.

    being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:36)
    Nothing God permits in your life is accidental or without design. He is shaping you and preparing you for the glorious future he has in mind for you when the whole universe will stand in awe at the workmanship of God. By the grace of God we are destined to shine like the sun in glory in the Day of Christ Jesus.

  8. just curious, if you don't mind me asking, but how is your relationship with God ?

  9. Quote Originally Posted by ReaperX View Post

    That's really hard to define. I believe it's rather strong, but it could always be stronger. An outsider could look at me (family member even) and think that I'm not very connected as I'm not a big church goer... I go on occasion, but that's not how I experience God for myself. I know ultimately he'd have me there. I just find a lot of it boring and cannot get into tha praise songs much. I find sermons of more entertainment value as that's where you learn God's word tha most unless you read tha bible for yourself. Only problem with that is it makes things difficult at times for interpretation. There can be lots of interpretation. Every church/religion is different, you align yourself with a church that closely resembles your beliefs or what makes sense to you. In some ways I've been blessed to have grandparents as Sunday School teachers. Quite frequently I work my daily problems into them which in turn usually ends up in a religous discussion. It's kind of a two-fold effect. I get to spend QT with my aging grandparents and get to have them tell me how I should come to church.

    In tha end, how I've always experienced God is through people. In fact, I believe it's tha Holy Spirit that gets inside/ calls to people and carries out God's work on Earth. Because we each have free will we can accept or decline God's offer OR in my case most recently, LISTEN. I know I've shared this testimony before, but I'll share it again because I actually saved it and it directly showcases yet another example of how God works in my life:

    Brian Keenan


    For whatever reason, I was thinking about this quote I have in my signature over at Avant tha other day. It reads "I get the most wonderful high when I know that I've just affected a person's life in a seriously positive way. To me, this is much better than any high and it NEVER goes away. I can always look back fondly on these memories and feel the satisfaction and pride just like it happened at that moment...it's overwhelming to me. So I'm always seeking it out." These words came from SJA and are very meaningful to me for a whole host of different reasons. In fact it's how I try and live my life day by day. There will always be times where you find yourself doing things you just don't want to do, or living life at such a pace where you are constantly trying to get 'ahead'. These are times where you say to yourself "Man, I can't wait for tha weekend". Yet you fail to realize it's 5 days away. So instead of wishing your life away, or *****ing about tomorrow I've always tried to heed Steve's advice and live in tha now and for my sake really try to remember things. Because in tha end, thats all you have memories and if you take tha time to smell, feel, taste and see you could be able to recall it as if it were yesterday. This is one of those stories.



    A few years ago when I first started lifting at Bloomsburg, there was a guy there named Brian Keenan. He worked at tha Student Rec Center and often his shift would coincide with me and Kelby's lifting time which was 9-10 at night. Brian was one of those guys who people looked up too. Even if you thought it was uncool to look up to someone or admire someone of tha same sex in college, you could just tell by tha people he associated with that many thought tha same way. He was of different calibur all together. The girls knew this too and it was fun to sit back at times and watch them swoon, but he had a girl and a lot of times because of this he had tons of clout in playing matchmaker for friends. You can imagine how jealous guys would get too, but thats not where I'm going with this... So anyhow, I think I first met Brian that first semester as a freshman and we chatted here and there on occasion like most gym-goers do. At that time I could tell he seemed like I cool person but what was usually overlooked by him getting my name wrong. Every time he saw me it was always something different.... Jared, Jason, Johnathon etc. I guess there was a time where he saw me across campus, yelled out my name and rushed to catch up with me just to say "Hi" but I had already boarded tha shuttle bus and never even gave him tha time of day because I didn't know tha fool screaming "Jason" really meant "Jordan".



    As time went on, so did our friendship. Because Kelby had a different schedule than I, there were times where I had to lift on my own and it was always nice to have Brian greet me at tha door. One day, after my workout, we were standing around bull****ting and I asked him if there was anyway I could get a T-Shirt like tha one they wore for work. I'm not quite sure why I asked since I knew it would be next to impossible but I liked how they had STAFF on tha back and it was tha only Student Rec shirts available. "Sorry buddy, you gotta work here" he replied. I figured as much and left it as that. Over tha next few semesters, if I'd see him and there wasn't anything to talk about, I'd tease him about those shirts. I'd come up with humorous ways in which I could possibly get one, just for a laugh. For example, asking him if he could hook me up with one of his female co-workers just so I could sleep with her, but instead of actually sleeping with her, I just wanted to take off her clothes. Then I'd hi-tail it out tha back door with shirt in hand. Brian would always end our conversation with "For you Jordan, I'll do what I can to get you one".



    I never realized how much those words meant to me until his last semester at Bloom. Like me, he graduated in December instead of your typical spring graduation. This would have been my Junior year, and for me personally this was one of those 'hit you like a ton of bricks' moments where God revealed Himself to me. It was about a week or two before finals. Once again I was doing my usual routine, hitting tha gym up late at night. Brian asked me something like how late I was going to be here (meaning in Bloom) and when my last final was. I told him I was going to stay til Friday, tha last day possible. He kinda shook his head; I laughed and thought nothing more of it. Before you knew it that THURSDAY came in a blink of an eye. I really felt bad driving to tha gym that night. I knew it would probably be tha last time I saw Brian. You try to find tha right words to say yet somehow no matter how many times you play it out in your head, it never comes out tha way in which you want it too. After my workout we said our goodbyes. I thanked him for his friendship and as always, like I tell everyone, I told him it's been real. We shook hands and then I made my towards tha door as tha rest of tha staff including Brian turned off tha lights and shut everything down. I was just about ready to open tha door when Brian yelled "Jordan, wait man, I have something for you". I turned around and gave a smile as I saw saw him and tha three other girls rushing towards me. It was then that it happened. He said "It might not be tha best Christmas present to get this year but at least I hope it means something", and with those words, in front of everyone, he took off his shirt and gave it to me… I really didn't know what to say and to be honest tha next few seconds are nothing but a blur. I just remember tha four of us getting into cars and Brian without a shirt on, and it snowing outside. I thank God I made it home safe that night because I cried like a child all tha way to my apartment. I was dumb struck, and it was then that I knew God had his plans for me. Brian touched me as much as I touched him. "I get the most wonderful high when I know that I've just affected a person's life in a seriously positive way. To me, this is much better than any high and it NEVER goes away. I can always look back fondly on these memories and feel the satisfaction and pride just like it happened at that moment...it's overwhelming to me." It is something I will never forget.



    You want more irony? Fast forward a few years… I work at tha gym where I train – Armstrong Fitness in Halifax and have my own staff shirt now

  10. That's an incredible story Jordan. It gets hard for me at times, especially when you connect with someone as a friend who has genuine compassion. I think that it is safe enough to say that a lot of people to a certain degree are asses and lack compassion.

    Every now and then I meet people who are really good people inside and have been very kind to me. This seems to be the minority of the individuals I meet because in order to be like this you have to be willing to put others before yourself (which a lot of people don't do).

    That's great to hear that you made a good friend, and hopefully you keep in touch with him, because he seems like a great guy.

    God has a way of unfolding himself by working through other people. In my experience, I've always known this to times when you meet certain people who touch your life. Many instances actually, God works through people in the bible. There are only a few circumstances where he does it all himself in a very supernatural, audacious way.

    Most of the time it is very subtle, through people, and in 'human ways', that are easy for us to understand. Far too often this gets shrugged off as 'coincidential or normal.'

    Sounds like you feel the pull, but I would suggest that you pursue a relationship with God even further. He wants to be your best friend and would welcome your presence at any time.

  11. Unfortunately I've lost contact with both Keenan and SJA. Most of Brian's (our mutual) friends have no contact information either. Both have made significant impacts in my life due to their kindness.

    I spoke with SJA several weeks ago. He is generous spirited as ever.

    Like with our relationship, the phone does not serve it justly.

    The "O" is only 6 months out. Maybe the three of us should plan to meet there.

    What I find most amusing is how we are all interconnected in one way or another. After his performance he shared his story, which was phenomenal and had me choked up a bit but not purely out of his own inspiration (although that was a BIG part of it). I couldn't help but think about Steve (SJA) again. I can remember we had this conversation once, just after switching jobs, where he told me about working with a guy in a chair. Steve said how frustrated he was to see how unsturdy the chairs were and how this individual in particular had difficulties actually keeping in tha chair to workout as well as gaining access to machines. After seeing some of Johnny's videos, it looks as though he straps himself in and uses a training partner... It just got me thinking. I don't know how feasible that project really was for him, but it sure would be cool as hell to get some designs done. No doubt there is a need.

    There is a man at my gym in a chair. He asked me to help him get out of his chair into the seat of an incline press machine.

    Two things happened: he was having trouble targeting his pecs with the angle of the incline. Being the mechanically inclined individual I am I noticed that there was a lever that was set in one direction. I mentioned it to him and set it at the other setting. Bingo!!! He was cooking with gas. He was SO grateful.

    The second thing that happened was when I was spotting him. I had all I could do to keep my tear drops from running down my face and dropping onto him.

    There are times Jordan, that I am so ashamed. So much so that I have all I can do to not sob out loud. I was SO grateful.

    I have an injury that has set me back and all I can do at times is dwell on the set back. This man has been in a chair all of his life (if I recall correctly..and he had nothing much in terms of lower body mass at all...don't know for sure his ailment) and was joyful and happy.

    I don't know if he has any idea I was crying or what an impact he made.

    Shamed myself to humility. I don't care what or who God uses to get me there. But thank God He sent this man into my life. My injury recovery may never be complete but if in the process my heart grows closer to God and other men...I WIN!!!

    Have you used any of tha Leptigen series?

    I'm running low on my current rotation of supplements: E-Bol, Adrenalean, Durablast, and Carnage all pretty much done.

    I've been tinkering with some new ideas before I bring in new stock.

    One of my ideas, since I have tha Storm (Creatine Complex) and Activite (Multi + Aminogen) is to start supplementing with high amounts of Glucosamine Sulfate (4-5g a day as suggested) and create a bootleg Avant Synthesize (a la Leptigen Mass).

    Thoughts?

    I have only used the original leptigen and/or the beta version and that was probably 4 years ago or more. I am really unfamiliar with the science in support of that sort of product. I know what leptin is and its functions (the little I do know) in regard to metabolism.

    I don't know if I gave in, but it's definitely out of circumstance. I much rather use free weights if I could... maybe actually be able to bench a little, you know.

    I think I may try it out. Now's Glucosamine caps are cheap. I figure I'll dose one serving 4x day with Activite at each meal. Then, take a half serving of Storm with meals 3x day just like AR's Synthesize protocol... we'll see what happens.

    I also have some LX, Thyrotabs, Bolic and a bottle of Diesel's Trib Test Extreme I picked up a while back as I could not find capped Nettle and again was cheap enough to be an ActivaTe Xtreme alternative. So I'll probably start adding these to tha mix as well.
