I just finished my first 2 week MAG-10 cycle. I started the program at 169 lbs and 10 % BF. I am 6 foot tall so you can see that I was thin.
Here are the results: == >
I gained 11 lbs. of LBM, BF % stayed at 10-11%, strength increased on most lifts by 5-10%. I took 2 doses a day for the whole 2 weeks, I also did 2 a day workouts per the Growth Surge project part 2.
My food journal shows that for Week 1 my average caloric intake was 1000 cal BELOW the Massive Eating protocol (yet a heck of a lot more than I normally eat before) and yet I gained 7 lbs LBM in that week. Week 2 I increased my calories so that my average caloric intake was only 200 calories BELOW the Massive Eating target and I gained 4 lbs LBM.
I noticed something else…Week 1 I would swallow the MAG-10 per instructions, and it left that burning feeling in the throat, my body felt pumped and I could feel all a heat in all the muscles that had been worked in the last 48 hours. Week 2 I started to wash down the MAG-10 with a quart/liter of water to eliminate the burning throat sensation, and I felt that the pumps were not as good as before and as you can notice above I didn’t gain as much.
The reason I bring this up is because I thought the second week I should gain almost as much as the first week seeing how I increased my calories, but it didn’t happen.
I went back to reading everything that was written about MAG-10 to see what I can do better next time. Well I came across something in Issue 185 “Choose your weapon” that talks about the oral delivery system through the capillary rich tissues of the alimentary canal and started to wonder if I cheated myself of some results because I washed down the MAG-10 with a quart of water??? Any comments??
I am now starting on "M", Tribex, and Methoxy-7 for the next 2 weeks, then I will do another 2 weeks of MAG-10 and keep you posted.
Happy lifting. William
PS Most of my calories came from drinking Advanced Protein because I just could not eat enough regular food to even come close to the Massive eating guidelines.
