  1. Bump. Im also down for some NL swag.
  2. Its a good reality check. To quote GD "Your much fatter than you think". Not in a bad way, but a lot of people dont realize just how lean 10% is.
  3. Congrats man. For the clomid and hcg, I pretty much get it through other means. Were I live now, after my first test result the doctor said "well, too bad: no kids for you unless your wife uses someone else's swimmers" Giggle fest. Glad to hear everything is working out for you.
  4. See how it goes. They did contact me after my order to say if I dont like it, full refund. Anyway, I wont know until I try.
  5. Just wondering if anyone has given this product a try. I ordered 4 bottles and will be looking to start it as part of my next re-comp kicking off around December 1. The ingredient list is pretty solid. Ill throw up my review when it comes time.
  6. Old post. Hope everything has worked out well for you. Any update? Im on TRT and trying to make a little one now, my motility was almost zero. 2 months of 500iu HCG and 50mg Clomid EOD (Mon, Wed, Fri) my count jumped to 14% A (forward progressive) and my total count doubled. Not bad while still being on TRT. Just my experience so far.
  7. Im pretty easy going. 60min pre I have a large apple, 1.5 scoops of Whey, 3 caps fish oil. Post I have 200g grilled steak, 1 cup of rice, some random steamed veggies, 1g vit C, 400iu vit E, 1g carnitine. I do miss a good pre-workout supp, but I train late and I like to be able to fall asleep before 11PM.
  8. Old thread but just thought I would add my experience with GW was nothing but positive. While I cant say for sure when it comes to bloods (HDL/LDL) as I was also running Var, the cardio improvement from GW is were it had the most benefit. I was hitting heavy squats and was ready for my next set in half the time I normally would be while maintaining solid intensity.
  9. I was dosing in the Am without any issue of being tired. I did find the bloat and hunger to be a bit of an issue for though (more so the bloat). Its worth a shot for anyone to give it a go as its not expensive and everyone will react a little different. While I did not like it, I have a friend who ran it for almost a year and had pretty nice results.
  10. A fair amount of copy and paste info coming up, but more or less Im looking to start a discussion and get opinions on the use of CBD for fat loss w/ additional life improvement benefits. CBD Based Fat Loss: 1 - Promotes fat oxidation CBD has been subjected to numerous studies on metabolism and other physical factors. One key study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine found that: 'CBD plays dual modulatory roles in the form of inducing the brown-like phenotype as well as promoting lipid metabolism.' [1] This study concluded that CBD is a useful tool to help target stored fat cells and even impact the subjects metabolism. Making it a potentially very exciting tool in the battle against obesity. In short, CBD offers a two pronged attack on stores of visible and non visible fat. 2 - Reduction in daily calorie intake Ghrelin is a hormone that is responsible for stimulating feelings of hunger and appetite. CB1 receptors are responsible for signalling the production of this hormone in the hypothalamus (appetite) area of your brain. A study [2] on CBD found that subjects who were given CBD saw a massive reduction in food consumption than the control subjects in the study. The study found that subjects injected with a CBD receptor antagonist saw:' ''..resulted in a further significant decrease in HF diet intake and a profound reduction in body weight gain...' This means that CBD can help control your cravings for snacks and extra food. Reducing overall calorie intake and ensuring the weight starts to fall off. 3 - Interacts with mitrocondia Your mitrocondia are the building blocks of all the cells in your body. CBD has shown some interesting interactions with these tiny parts of you. Research has found that CBD can help organise these cells and help strengthen and protect the good ones and remove bad ones. What's exciting is that there are a countless number of illnesses and conditions, including metabolic [3] disorders that could be impacted due to these interactions as well as the fact that new cells and improved mitochondrial function can contribute to more energy and daily vitality. 4 - Improve energy levels, mood and exercise performance An increasing number of athletes in nearly every discipline are utilising CBD to push themselves further and harder. Some endurance athletes have even dropped regular painkillers in favour of CBD as a natural alternative. This is because CBD offers anti-inflammatory effects. One review [4] of a number of studies the use of cannabinoids as a way to treat chronic pain and inflammation concluded that: '...the future for cannabinoid therapeutics appears very bright, indeed.' This impacts fat loss as it means that the potential for an increased number of calories burned through exercise. And even the potential for quicker recovery. Increasing the potential for you cut back on fat quicker than ever. 5 -Better sleep and a reduction in stress hormone cortisol - which can have a huge impact on weight Sleep is a crucial part of fat loss. In fact, there a study [5] found an association between a lack of sleep of weight gain due to an increase in appetite. If your sleep improves, you can be sure that this will have an impact on both your weight and also your mood and general lifestyle. A study [6] into CBD and sleep stability concluded: results support the hypothesis that endocannabinoid signalling through CB1 is necessary for NREM stability. In short cannabinoids can play a role in ensuring you have a fixed and good nights sleep. Another area linked to the potential effects of CBD on sleep, is that it's got a promising link to reducing anxiety and stress. Stress, is heavily linked to the hormone cortisol which is linked to increased fat and weight gain [7].

  11. Same here. That and I feel more comfortable doing my AM cardio fasted.
  12. I believe they went through some drama on another board and things got bogged down for a bit. I had a touch down about 3 weeks ago though with no issue. I cant comment on most of the gear as its still boxed, but the Cialis is spot on. Almost too spot on, the morning after wood makes hitting the toilet tricky even with the 45 degree lean in. Prior experience has always been good as far as quality is concerned.
