I received my first bottle of Driven Sports' Lean Xtreme on Friday as I've read so many good things about it and wanted to try for myself.
I'm mid way through a winter bulk and thought that I could run 4 weeks of this with a clean bulk which would help with a mild recomp. I am fairly lean but there's that stubborn "softness" around the midriff that needs to be burnt off so I thought this was the supp to help me do it!
I've been on it only three days and I thought I'd give some feedback. This is not a supp log, just a few honest comments that I thought might help other newbies to LX.
I'm taking one on waking, one four hours later (as recommended on the bottle) and one mid afternoon. I do cardio three days a week (4.5 mile steady state jog) and lift three to four times a week (each session last approx 70-80 minutes). My daily supp staples are Orange Triad (2 x 3 tabs) and Orange OxiMega (2 x 2). I've just finished a Bioforge PM and Bioforge V1 cycle and this is my 4 week rest from that. LX will fill that 4 week gap. I currently use Size ON when lifting and Purple Wraath before running, plus whey obviously at various times.
Anyway, the first couple of days on LX I felt quite nauseous. I didn't think too much of this as I guessed this was my system getting used to the stuff. The nausea has subsided on day four, so I guess I was right.
After only the second day my kneee joints and certain finger joints started to get a little sore. Bearing my age (40), you could say this was also normal, but I've never had joint pain before. I have read that LX can give you joint pain because of what it's doing to your cortisol levels. I'm not sure how long this will last, but I'm hoping the joint support in Orange Triad will help ease this side effect.
The third side effect I have encountered is constipation. I am used to going twice a day at least, but the past couple of days I've been bunged up. Can this be due to LX? It's never happened before. I normally poo like clockwork.
Anyway, thanks for reading. I have yet to feel any benefits but four days in I wouldn't expect to see me suddenly cut. I am going to stick to it and I'll let you know if the benefits do actually outweigh the drawbacks and my midsection will be solid and not for the reason it is full of cr4p!
