I was chosen to log Kwik Energy form Universal. It took me a but to get it up as I got my summer employment situated. Right now I am trying to finish off a cut by shedding about 5-10 more lbs. I don't really go by body weight itself but more by look. So after a 8 hour workday outside either fixing go karts or running them I really need a pick me up.
My diet is fairly clean and I have slashed my carbs in order to drop weight. I focus on eating mainly chicken, tuna, and some fairly fatty meats like ham. I then go into some cheeses and eggs to add in some flavor. So far low carbs and high protein and highish fats has worked.
As for supplements I take whey and creatine pre workout and since I live about 5 minutes from the gym post workout is usually chicken or tuna and rice. I take a generic vitamin and will upgrade once I get consistent paychecks.
I currently run a modified DC style workout that is MWF and every other day I run about 2-2 1/2 miles and hit my abs usually late in the day on as much a empty stomach as I can.
Height: 6' 5"
Cut a bit more fat and stay lean as possible.
Today was the first day I took kwik energy and will post results once I review my journal. I will start with one a day pre workout or pre run/post workday. I will bump up the dosage adding in one upon waking if necessary.

Took kwik about 30 minutes before hitting the gym along with some whey and creatine. Worked a full 7 hours that day doing maintenance work all day. Didn't feel anything special but defiantly was more awake and ready to workout. Usually when I get to the gym I have to sit and get ready (get in the mindset) after working all day but by the time I got there I was ready to go. I also wasn't as sluggish as I usually am during the beginning portion of the workout. I just didn't feel the need for the longer breaks as I got into a groove. I just went in hit the weights and left. Also I didn't have a crash when I got home like usual after working and working out.
Thought about taking kwik before I headed off to work. Instead I decided to take it after work when I got off at 4pm after another good 7 hours fixing things. Defiantly felt more awake by the time I got home similar to yesterday. No jittery, want to go and do something feeling, just more awake and not as tired. Didn't feel the need to nap or just sit and relax. I was able to move right onto the usual job hunting that I have been doing each night. No crash either. Never felt tired at any point or felt the sudden need to lean back and close my eyes.
Overall I like my reaction to kwik so far. I am one of the biggest skeptics when it comes to energy supplements simply because they don't always work well for me because of my natural size. But I like that fact that I simply was more awake and not as tired when the day was done. I wasn't super jittery and wanting to constantly be moving around. I was able to just move onto the next thing I had planned and focus. I prefer a more behind the scenes boost rather then a obvious energy boost. I will start taking some of the kwik in the mornings and 30 minutes before I do my morning/evening cardio to see how it helps that. I will also make a bigger effort to log my review daily.

Took kwik preworkout after another full day shift. Also took my whey and creatine. Felt really good by the time I got to the gym. No jitters or anything. Had more energy to workout too. No need to sit and prepare this time. Just went in and got **** done. A lot more focus too. Overall I had more intensity and energy in the gym then I usually have after work or teaching all day. Also still none of the usual super tired crash post workout. I felt like I could've kept going.
Took kwik this time when I woke up to see how it does throughout the day. Overall I had very good energy during the work shift. Even after spending four hours fixing a guide wheel setup. Even after that I still has plenty of fuel in the tank to power wash and finish out the shift.

Took kwik 30 minutes preworkout again. It is awesome. Plenty of energy in one small pill and no jitters or over stimulation. And with it being a pill I don't have to worry about screwing with the taste of my whey and creatine. Also had enough energy left that I also ran in the evening since I haven't done cardio in awhile.
Took it today after waking. Had good energy for the day. Todays was all about job hunting so it was really boring and thankfully kwik get me up and going for the hours pouring over job openings. Even had plenty left in the tank for a long run in the evening as well.
I am very impressed with this product. I am the most skeptical person when it comes to energy supplements of any kind and have tried so many of them with almost no effects or the super jitters. I like how the energy for me is more low key in all. Just more awake and focused overall throughout the day. I am not jittery or over energized at all which is good. I will posting up my current diet and workout tomorrow as I finally have a break from work and job hunting.

Took kwik today once again upon waking as I had a 8 hours shift at work today as maintenance. Felt great throughout the day today and didn't experience any crashes even post work when I finally relaxed.
I will outline my basic workout as I am adjusting to a old/new gym and I do believe in differences in equipment. Even machines in different gyms have a different feel to them.
I started with straight DC workout and have modified it. I run a MWF 1A1B 2A2B 3A3B split. Right now except for legs and back thickness I do one rest paused (10-12 reps) set with a big compound movements and then follow it up with a straight set where I try to fail between 15 and 20 reps. Legs and I do a heavy set of 6-8 followed by a 20 rep widowmaker and back thickness its the usual heavy 6-8 reps and a set of 10-12 reps. So far it is working well at adding mass for me. I also cycle in cruise phases about every 8-10 weeks to recover.
This all might change once I get on a stable work schedule and know my hours.
I usually don't track my food but work to get a set number in. Right now I am cutting a bit for summer and am trying a really low carb diet which seems to be working. I upped both my fats and protein and as I said its working well.
Right now I am at about 300+ grams of protein, 135+ grams of fat, and about 35 grams of carbs a day and its all post workout usually or post cardio.
