T-dogs, and vixens...
I must take some time out of my day to elaborate on my initial Spike experience.
I am a father of a very energetic 19 month old, first time home owner, husband of a wonderful woman with very little time to myself.
As you can imagine my "to do" list runs longer then daylight burns, and I'm VERY hard on myself when things don't get done. Yet somehow in this madness, I must find time to lift.
Occasionally, as it is for some of you, breaking myself in the gym is the ONLY reason I have for getting out of bed. This is rare, but it happens.
During one of my trips to GNC I noticed a very small display with big yellow letters, "Spike"...I recognize this from T-Nation, and figured what the hell. I got a 2 pack just to give it a shot.
I got up around 10am, this is late for me, I stayed up till 4am playing quake4, (im a geek) and didn't rest very well at all. I made my oatmeal, tossed in some whey, my creatine, I took my sups, and tossed in the Spike figuring it would do nothing.
By 11 something was different. I was focused, wide eyed and ready to do my daily duties. By 2 pm I had built a workbench, changed the oil in both of my cars, and was looking around for more things to do. I can't express to you just how productive this day was for me, and I was just warming up....With nothing left to do I looked at my iron and figured...LETS DO THIS! One of the best workouts ever.....
I may be rambling, but even now, after just 1 Spike I feel like I could go for another round.
My only bad mark about Spike is this. If you suffer from anxiety in social situations, avoid Spike if you plan on being around lots of people. This is a great pick up if you have a solo day, but I couldn't fathom taking this every day....
I give it a 9 out of 10....and I could still rip the heart out of a grown man right about now.
