It took me a while to get started on the Powerstack. When the supplements arrived, work was getting crazy so my training schedule was less than optimal and I felt the effectiveness of the “stack” would be compromised. I decided to begin on December 2 and followed the guidelines Tim Patterson originally laid out.
I switched my training to a Westside set-up 3 months ago and had been making good progress up until the present. The most effective supplement out of the bunch in my opinion was the Powerdrive. I used two servings mixed in club soda 15-20 minutes before my sessions. Mental focus on Max Effort days was tremendous and over the entire 4 weeks using Powerdrive I set new PRs. On Dynamic Effort days bar speed felt quicker and I felt I was able to keep it up throughout all sets.
The Tribex and M also added a little kick. My recovery time was definitely improved while taking the Tribex. Soreness disappeared ~36 hours after a hard workout as opposed to the usual 48-72 I normally experience. I attribute this to my increased ability to add a few more active recovery workouts throughout the week. Having taken Tribex before in the past though, I had better results with 6 capsules a day rather than the three recommended for the Powerstack.
The Grow! bars and MRPs tasted awesome as usual. It’s nice to have Classic Grow! back.
Overall, I was impressed with the Powerstack. I will definitely add Powerdrive and Tribex into my supplement arsenal in addition my regulars like Surge and Grow! powders.
