's P6 Extreme
- "Testosterone Boosting - Hypertrophic Agent" In the realm of bodybuilding there are those who will do anything to gain that unfair edge but there are also those who will not cross a line when it comes to overall health. Where am I going with this?...Prohormones
and Steroids. The most unfair of edges and a temptation that most bodybuilders come face to face with, no sooner then when they enter their first gym. It may start in high school but it definitely hits hardest when you walk into a real gym. You see Monster
s that resemble men; women who have broader shoulders than you, baby faced teenagers that look more like John Cina then the skinny little kids they act like, members of the local high school wrestling and football team and you feel somewhat inadequate.
So... where does one who is not willing to sacrifice health over looks go? Natural Test Boosters
of course. Everything from ZMA
, Stinging Nettle etc. We even go as far as nutrient re-partitioners and the most rare compounds that really have no scientific backing other than some tribal leaders in a rainforest using them to increase libido. All this, in search of that edge.
One of these products, which some of the Cellucor
customers call P6 Extreme
Red, has made a name for itself. I know that the previous formula, P6 Extreme
Black, had a pretty good following. In researching the old formula I found out that the compounds that made up P6 Black were going to be banned and knowing this, the executives of Cellucor
pulled P6 Black from the shelves in a proactive effort to save themselves from any headaches caused by the ban.
So how does P6 Extreme
Red compare to the old formula? Well, I have found that many who used the old formula complain that the newer one is not as strong. I myself will never find out because back when it was legal I knew nothing of Cellucor
. I do recall a time back then, when I was about to pull the trigger on a purchase for T-Bomb but wound up getting the Up Your Mass
powder...talk about dodging a bullet(WOW).
I received a 120 cap bottle from Cellucor
s rep GClausen, who in my opinion is a company rep worth his salt. I have had nothing but negative experiences with company reps... ALL company reps from A to Z, except Universal
Nutrition, they actually don't respond to my emails or phone calls...LOL. Mr. Clausen insisted that P6 would surpass my expectations and with what little knowledge I have of real "gear", it made me feel I could trust his recommendation. Because this guy is huge...Thank you very much Sir.
I am going to about this review a little differently and just describe my experiences with P6 and rate the product based on my own results. I do understand that some people have claimed to have not gotten anything at all from P6... but no so with me.
Being a sensitive responder to most things I ingest whether it be caffeine, aspirin etc. I was a little intimidated by the ingredients in P6 Red but as we, in the supplement world, like to say you'll never know how it'll affect you until you try it. So I did...
First dose I took at about 4:30 a.m. in the morning, with no pre-workout
supps, before going to the gym. On the ride to the gym I started noticing a slight feeling of anxiousness nothing like an anxiety attack or anything but just a little nervous. I must attribute this Sensa
tion to the fact that it was the first time my body was being introduced to these materials because I never got the Sensa
tion again through out the rest of the cycle. In the gym... I was a Monster
. I usually start off going light then adding weight to my exercises because it is early in the a.m. and sometimes after awakening I can't even squeeze the tooth paste out of the tube hah ha. Only this time I was able to go from exercise to exercise, set to set with less rest and adding weights very quickly when I suddenly realized... that my workout was over. I seriously felt like I could have kept going.
It was like this the rest of my workout week, it was stunning, and I actually looked forward to getting to the gym at 5 in the morning. I actually found myself desiring and anticipating my leg days. My DOMS was kept in check with P6 even though I use Glutalyn my leg DOMS are a real pain but not with P6. After my cycle of P6, I went just as hard on my next leg day as when I was on it but the next day I realized why I was having so much fun on my leg and back days. I had even started to do squats on Tuesdays and heavy dead lifts on Thursdays, which is my back day, with no problems whatsoever. I did that same routine this past week and Friday I thought I was going to die... LOL. My lower back was killing me and I even carried the pain over to this week, which means I may have to take a week off but now I know it was P6 all along.
I'm going to rate P6 9 Overall.
Effectiveness I'll rate it a 10; my recovery
was amazing, something I've never experienced even with my favorite test boosting supp. P6 gave me a great turn around time for my workouts and helped me breeze through exercises.
Results I'm going to have to go with a strong 8.5. The Product claims that with P6 one would Lean Out
but I gained a touch of fat but I won't say it's P6 that is at fault because my appetite went up while on P6 and I just couldn't dial it in and, unfortunately, I did not have Glycobol
with me for more than half of my cycle which probably explains why I gained the body fat. I did gain muscle though, I need to make that very clear and my shape is looking more muscular than before my cycle. My muscles are fuller, dense and I haven't lost anything since finishing my cycle.
Last but not least Value; I must admit that P6 (at least for me) is worth its price. I'll give it a 7 only because of those claims from non responders. It's a shame that in the supplement world some products are a crap shoot a very expensive crap shoot...but with P6 I'd definitely give the dice a roll!!! Any questions??? Ask away...;)
