"workout booster 2"

Monday, May 13, 2013

About two years ago, I wrote a review on using Lipo-6 by Nutrex to help me kickstart my weight loss & fitness journey. In 5 months, I lost about 8kg of weight from working out 5 times a week and eating well.

I have been maintaining the current yo-yo weight of 45-47kg for some time now, and I'm looking to add-on lean muscle and shed more blubber. I want ab definition. I have also stopped taking in any pre-workout formulas, which make me really full & bloated from all that liquid intake - but you can still read my reviews and experience with those. Hence why I will now be taking on a newer version of Lipo-6, which is the Lipo-6x.

This practically works the same way as its predecessor, but with a new capsule technology for duration. And today being my first day, I have to say I got the jitters after taking my first pill. Good jitters with a lot of sweating from the heat. Don't worry, this usually wears off. However seeing as this is a more advanced formula, I'll need a few more days into it before I can give my verdict.

This time round, it's not to lose weight. In fact, I think I'll be putting on more weight this time - not fat, but muscle weight. Many people say that products don't work for them (in terms of weight) because they forget that muscle is heavier and more dense than fats - especially those who add weights into their workout. You would only see a decrease of weight if you do solely cardio - but you will not look toned or fit. So the REAL goal here? Lose all that extra flab and gain some muscle - look good and listen to the  mirror despite what the weighing scale tells me.

Watch this space for updates.

DAY 1 & 2
I had two capsules per day, one in the morning about 10am and another in the evening at 5pm, before my usual 6.30pm workout. I haven't had the chance to hit the gym yet, but I can say it gives me a good flow of energy. I get a little hot and hyper in the morning but by noon, it would have worn off. I got a bout of jitters too, but that only lasted for less than an hour. I was able to sleep quite well the night before, so there isn't much side effects. Most importantly, I find that it helps to constantly drink water. At least 4 times an hour.

On day two I went to the gym, had an hour Pump class and an hour Combat class. Weights and cardio ain't easy without my usual pre-workout (Amino Energy by Optimum Nutrition) and I was extremely tired within the first 30 minutes of each class. I made it though and I was sweating buckets by the end of each. Do I feel sexier after? Sure do. ;)

I weighed myself and I seem to have lost 1kg (standing at 46kg now) and so far I haven't had any insomnia side effects. But I do feel like throwing up during my workouts and experience a bad bout of chest pains while working out. I don't have a lot of energy from this, which requires me to still rely on my pre-workout drinks. My appetite is suppressed though, so that isn't too bad.

I learnt that you should not take the pill if you do not have enough sleep the night before. It will cause you to have really bad headaches, a bit of nausea and you will get a bout of cold sweat. I even experienced a two-hour long anxiety attack in the morning. So, please skip a day if you're not sleeping well and drinking enough fluids. Definitely do not consume alcohol with the pill. That's a no-brainer.

Progress, I have not weighed myself since day 7 but my tummy is flatter and I feel that I am a bit slimmer overall. My thighs seem to have shrunk a bit with my waist (but unfortunately so has my butt. But never mind, I shall do more squats). Very slight changes in my first week, but very promising. :)
