The guys at Build Fast Formula were nice enough to send me a full 30 serving tub of VasoBLITZ to log. Just got it yesterday afternoon, cracked it open this morning!
A little bit about myself. I’m 37, 5’11’’, 188. It’s summer so I’m in maintenance. That doesn’t mean I take it easy in the gym. I’m just not eating everything in sight, still killing it in the gym but only lifting 4 days a week. I’m hitting every muscle group 2x a week, cardio/abs other days. I workout at home so sometimes I try to get creative with my exercises.
I requested Watermelon. Upon opening, it didn’t have much of a watermelon smell. I mixed it in 9 oz. The taste was very light. It was not too sweet like a watermelon jolly rancher but tasted more like a true watermelon. It did have a weird aftertaste. It mixed up fine. Directions say to take everyday.
Today was an AM workout. I drank my VasoBLITZ 45 minutes preworkout. I also had 300 mg caffeine in the form of 1.5 tabs. I could probably do 200 mg but it’s more of a mental thing, I guess I think I need 300 mg. I have to have as least some stimulant first thing in the morning. I trained fasted today but that was only because I had a huge dinner last night. Otherwise I would have had some fruit preworkout.
Here was my 65 min upper body workout today:
4x Wide grip chin-ups
SS Reverse DB fly
SS Strength band standing chest press 60-90 seconds rest
3x Landmine incline chest press
SS preacher curls 50-85 seconds rest
3x Landmine t-bar row
SS incline EZ curl bar tricep press 45-80 seconds rest
4x Standing BB shoulder press 65-90 seconds rest
3x DB tricep kickbacks
SS DB incline curls 50-80 seconds rest
10 minutes HIIT cardio consisting of:
8x Mountain Climbers 20 sec on 10 sec off
8x Stairs 20 sec on 10 sec off
I normally get a really good pump going throughout the workout. I experienced a good pump but nothing more than what I’m used to. I have to say my PWO supplement lately consisted of 4-5g citrulline, stimulants, nootropics, maybe some other ergogenics like agmatine and taurine. I haven’t been using betaine nor nitrates which VasoBLITZ has. I can tell you that there was a performance boost in my chin-ups. I hit 26 for the first time this summer. Then each subsequent set I seemed to get an extra rep. The rest of the workout was on par or maybe slightly better on a couple other sets. I never got that blood-gorging pump but then again I was training several muscle groups. I’m looking forward to the nitrates building up in my system.
I’ll play around with carb and workout timing over the 30 days. I’ve also got some pics to post, can’t do it right now. Hope you all enjoy my log. Let me know if you have any questions.
Thanks Build Fast Formula!
