Hello All –
This is the start of my daily log for my use of @Buildfastformula VasoBLITZ product. Thank you to the brand for sending me out a tub to log. A little background about myself. Currently weighing in at ~210 pounds, standing six foot three inches. Have recently lost about 30 pounds from my heaviest weigh in at ~240 pounds about six months ago. I follow an intermittent fasting eating protocol where I typically only have one large meal per day in the evening. Focus on protein and fats with most of my carbs coming from fruit and vegetables. Currently eating in a caloric deficit and trying to reach ~195 pounds by the end of the year. My weight training sessions are typically in the afternoon, starting between 12 noon and 2pm. I lift at least three days a week, sometimes more if I have the opportunity. I also do LISS cardio seven days a week for an hour or more.
Now onto the first day of using VasoBLITZ. I knew the tub was coming in the mail today, so I delayed my training a few hours until it was delivered by the Post Office. As for mixing, there was no issues with the two scoops (15.5g) in the ten ounces of cold water that I used. In terms of flavor, I received the watermelon and closely associate the taste with that of a watermelon Jolly Rancher candy. Not an overly powerful flavor and very enjoyable to drink. No aftertaste or odd mouth-feel from drinking the product. Props to the brand for the product being 80%+ actives and only ~20% fillers for taste and mixability with the product still being enjoyable.
As for the workout, today was my leg day. I typically finish eating my meal around 12 midnight the day before, so I train in a 12-14 hour fasted state. Did not experience any stomach issues after drinking a serving or throughout the entire workout, which lasted about an hour and fifteen minutes. In terms of effectiveness for this workout, I have nothing outstanding to report. I did not get a huge pump, which was ok for training legs, as I do not enjoy too much blood in the muscles during this session. The feeling was about the same as any other pre-workout that I have used which contain some pump products (most commonly citrulline or citrulline-malate). What I could definitely tell was missing when compared to my normal products used was the energy and focus aspects. I realize this product is stim-free, so I was not expecting the normal kick of caffeine or anything else to make an appearance. I wanted to at least use this product on its own before adding any stimulants and/or focus ingredients during future training sessions.
Overall, a good workout but not as high paced or intense as normal. The body was dragging a little and I did not have my normal focus and energy when compared to using other products. Excited to see how this performs when I get to upper body workouts and after I get a few more servings in me for the nitrates to build up.
Let me know if you have any questions or would like more details about something.
