Default Karbolyn:Bamazav's quest for muscle

Welcome to my log of my usage of Karbolyn. I want to Thank Eric and the folks at AAEFX for giving me this opportunity and I look forward to seeing great things happening.



A little background. I am a 48 year old male. In Oct. 2007 I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and given a choice of losing weight or starting meds. I chose the first choice and began a 12 week journey to get my weight down. At my heaviest I was about 230lbs of skinny fat. I didn't think I was overweight, but looking back at pictures, I was a mini buddah statue. I began with body weight and light dumbbell training, following the TNT Diet put out my Men's Health. I lost 35 lbs during those 12 weeks and brought my cholesterol closer to normal. Over the course of the next two years I battled the weight battle, was diagnosed with fatty liver and low T. I began picking up used equipment, via Craigslist, and put together fairly decent gym I have dubbed "The Dog House." During that time I have trained fullbody, using a variation of Park's 5 x 5, tried various other routines and most recently had a 6 month run of 5/3/1. I am currently working running a higher volume Hypertrophy based program through June and then will probably return to a 5/3/1 variation.

I have used waximaize in the past, but found it gave me gas. I also tried various sugars and found the same result. So, I am looking forward to see how I respond to this product. I will be following Eric's dosage protocols, 1/2 scoop pre, 1/2 scoop intra and 1 scoop post. I received my product yesterday and took my first pre-workout this morning. I will be hitting the Dog House in a few minutes and will update this thread as soon as I can today.

1 level scoop at the top of the scooper is 40g's

Karbolyn is 1g carb per 1g of weight.

Once again just as a reminder for people following, Karbolyn is made from Rice, Corn and Potato's.

NOTES
I was a little motivated to hit the Dog House today. I don't know wether it was the argument in the car or the extra carbs, but I was ready to get some work done. After the back spasms and slight pull on Monday, I decided to do the overhead seated for a bit more support. As I look at the numbers there are a few anomalies. The 8 repper on the front raises was one. I ran out of gas. When I went back to the next set it was like a new me and I knocked the last two sets out with little problems.

Karbolyn Thoughts
I had the strawberry flavored K for my pre-workout carbs. A nice strawberry taste. What surprised me was I was expecting a ton of sweetness and it wasn't there. Now that is not a bad thing, I love the taste of the Strawberry, it just isn't sickeningly sweet.

I did feel more energy today. It also seemed to come in waves. Again, not a bad thing as it pushed me to completion. The only other thing of note at this point, about an hour post training, is there is no bloating or gas. That is a win!

OK, weighed out the Karbolyn with original scooper.

Scooper is 12g's empty, 0 scale out and weigh product results.

Level scoop to the line by the handle, is right on the money and at 50g's.
IF you just dig in and do a rounded scoop to the top it averages 70g's being 70 carbs.

Helpful info Rich. On my full scoop, I went to the line by the handle. This will make it easy to figure out. I will be weighing from here on out, invested in the digital scale recently.

^5 the original scoop is great going to the line. But if your cutting and anal on macro counts Karbolyn is touchy on what makes a gram. You can go from 50g's to 55 in the blink of the eye. lol

Since you brought it up a few weeks ago, I have been measuring everything. It is kinda fun. I now know how much all of our plates, paper product, bowls, etc... weigh. Since I got both the Strawberry and the Unflavored, I will be measuring both scoops. There can be a variance in those items too.
