Hi guys

Firstly thanks to @delsolrob and @thebigt for picking me up to run Alpha Stano. The product normally comes in capsule form, but for this run we're just using the raw powder. Unlike some other epi products, they use a cyclodextrin delivery system. The spec on the powder is 300mg epi and 700mg cyclodextrin.

For this run, i'll start off with running 1g pre workout in the morning and then having 500mg at dinner time. I'll see later on in the run if i want to bump it up to 1g twice a day.

The main things i'm looking for on this run is a strength increase and some recomp/increase in muscle. Since it's winter i've started pushing up my calories a bit and eating more carbs than usual, so hopefully with this product i can stay relatively lean and add some muscle. Will also comment on libido effects as well as feel good/alpha feeling while on this product.

I train 4-5 times a week, with one muscle group per day. I still try and to cardio 3 times a week, mostly this will be walking or running, depending on how i feel on that day.

Will post stats with my day one update later.

@Tank88 this stuff hit me really fast-surprisingly fast...if you are upping carbs I would not be surprised to hear you say pump was fantastic right out of the gate...also look for a quick increase in libido/erection quality.

I took if for the first time this morning and honestly the pump was pretty good, i took a pwo, but it's more of a stim pwo than a pump one and when i got home i was pretty surprised by the pump, i did eat a lot of carbs yesterday so that might have been it

fortunately I think this works really well with carbs, at least that has been my experience...I've also seen some nice toning up/tightening of muscles even while enjoying my holiday carbs.

Day 1

Took one gram pwo this morning, I mixed it noxygen (glycerol) and my preworkout (btw is that ok to do that?). Did chest, i wasn't really feeling it this morning, guess it was just of tiredness after the long weekend and not working out since Wednesday.

Being day 1, there's not really much to report, except (as i noted above) i did get a really good pump, which was surprising since i wasn't going as hard as i normally would on chest day (all my weights were down to just get back into things). I would say my workout finished pretty strong, i did a chest finisher where i try and do 50 dips in as few sets as possible with little rest between sets, i easily managed this in 3 sets and threw in an extra 15 reps for the hell of it, maybe next week i'll do weighted dips for that.

One thing i can take from day 1 is this product does seem to help with pumps. Tonight will be back, will keep carbs high today as well, so let's see how it goes.

yes, I mixed with pre-workout when I started...now I prefer just putting in mouth and letting dissolve, which personally works best for me although not required.

Day 2

I couldn't workout yesterday morning, so i went last night to do some back. I again mixed 1g with my pwo, i was feeling a bit off, don't know if it's the start of a cold, but as soon as i started working out, everything was ok.

This was a really good workout, i could hit 365 for deads (not a lot i know, but recently that's been a lot for me), barbell rows at 245, lat pulldowns for 220, 5 plates a side on the shrug machine, it was just a really fun workout and i felt strong throughout, was definitely better than my back workout last week. Being back day, there wasn't much of a pump to talk about. One thing i've noticed is i'm more sore after my workouts, my chest was really tight yesterday and even this morning i can feel my back being pretty sore already.

I think it's still maybe a bit early to say if any of the above (better workout, more soreness) is relating to the product, but it could be, all my lifts were up from the last few weeks although i used the same pwo, so it could be, as @thebigt mentioned the product does kick in quickly. I'm going to try and stay off pwo's for a bit from now on to get a better idea of the product's effectiveness, will continue to run other staples like bcaa and glycerol and really just pwo if i really feel i need it.

I've been mixing mine with PWO, and it's been a game changer!

in complete honesty I've never had a product like this kick in so quickly...usually the time is around 2 weeks to see results for epiandro.

Awesome to see that this is working so well for you. I’ve found there are some products that can hit faster. Iconics products are definitely one of them.

Day 3

I did arms yesterday, went in the morning, didn't sleep all that much the night before (got in late after workout, and was a bit wired from the pwo), i haven't been training arms the last few weeks and i just did my back workout the night before, so wasn't expecting much.

I managed to relatively easily do 110lb barbell curls (haven't done that in a minute), could do 60lb hammer curls (close to pb), 85lb overhead tricep extensions and even on my finisher set, i could do 90lb barbell standing spider curls, which was my max from a few weeks ago when doing them earlier in my workout. I really didn't feel tired during the workout and strength was definitely good throughout. Didn't get the biggest pump during the workout, but waking up this morning i'm still looking pretty full and vascularity seems better than a week ago (no change in diet). My current weight this morning is 200lb, will keep monitoring this too.

So far my biggest takeaway is that my workouts feel really good, so there's definitely a bit of the mood enhancing/alpha male feeling improvement there. I didn't workout this morning, as i felt pretty groggy last night and waking up this morning i didn't feel much better, so i'm just taking a day to hopefully get over some of these cold symptoms, hopefully i'll be good to go tomorrow.

Day 5

I did shoulders this morning, still wasn't feeling super great this morning, hoping it will clear up over the weekend, but decided to workout anyway.

Machine shoulder press: 2 warmup sets, 225 for 10, 275 for 6, 315 for 3, then drop to 225 for 6 and 135 for 6.
Dumbbell side raises: 30 for 12, 40 for 12, 50 for 8, then drop to 40 for 8 and 30 for 8
Dumbbell front raise: 40 for 12, 50 for 12, 55 for 8, 60 for 8
Barbell shrugs: 135, 225, 315 all for 12, then 405 for 8
Reverse peck deck: 4 sets of 12
Finisher, machine side raises, 50 reps at 70lb (got my 50 reps in 4 sets with 10 seconds between sets).

The workout started off kind of slow, i can normally do more on the shoulder press, but as it went on i felt a lot better and could push on, so considering i have a mild cold i'll take it. One thing i'll note is my body hurts so much, my traps, lower back, arms, everything is really sore after this week, don't know if the increased DOMS are from the product or maybe working out a bit harder, but i'm looking forward to some recovery this weekend. might do a little chest workout tomorrow and some cardio, haven't done cardio this week, will see how i feel tomorrow. It took a lot to convince myself not to just take a pwo this morning, but i'm glad i didn't, i really feel the Alpha Stano is helping push my workouts along.

at the risk of sounding like a shrill[really don't care], some dermacrine might help with those doms...I am on trt once weekly and I feel doms worse when it gets close to injection day then after injection I am gtg...increased dht has an AI effect.
