What?€™s in the NEW E-Bol you ask???
Turkesabol?„? 20 mg At the top of the list of ingredients located on the new E-BOL label is Turkesabol. This is the trademarked name of ThermoLife's HPLC-tested Ajuga turkestanica extract. Though it has been standardized for its turkesterone content, Turkesabol also supplies ecdysterone, cyasterone and ajugasterone. These three compounds and turkesterone. Turkesterone is an analogue of ecdysterone possessing an 11-alpha hydroxyl group, a molecular feature which may contribute to turkesterone's potent anabolic properties. Ajuga turkestanica was the plant that ThermoLife ultimately settled on. It remains to date the highest-yielding and most cost-effective source of turkesterone discovered. Ajuga is also the only turkesterone-containing plant shown to be anabolic as many studies suggest. Turkesterone occurs in a variety of other herbs, including Rhaponticum carthamoides (also found in E-BOL) and some species of mushrooms. However, no one has been able to cost-effectively extract it from these sources. So far nothing tested by ThermoLife has been found to be as rich in this anabolic environment as Ajuga. Ajuga grows in Central Asia, particularly Uzbekistan, two species of Ajuga grow in Uzbekistan. Ajuga turkestanica (referred to here simply as "Ajuga") is the one found in the new E-BOL formula.
Each serving of E-BOL supplies consumers with 20 mg of Ajuga, which ThermoLife scientists consider to be effective when combined with the other ingredients in the formula. This amount costs the company more than a few dollars - an enormous expense by industry standards.
EcdyPure?„? 110 mg Appearing second on the list of ingredients is EcdyPure, the trademarked name of ThermoLife's Rhaponticum carthamoides extract. It is standardized to contain 95% ecdysterone, a figure that has also been verified by third-party laboratory testing using HPLC. Similar to turkesterone, a plant source of ecdysterone was chosen rather than a synthetic (pure) one. There are a number of reasons for this. Firstly, there are many compounds in Rhaponticum (e.g. other phytoecdysteroids, methoxyflavones) that may provide physique and performance enhancing benefits. Also, producing synthetic ecdysterone is cost-prohibitive. It requires a complex 11-step process that is so complex and expensive it has never even been attempted. Furthermore, as indicated above. Scientific studies suggest Rhaponticum is what was actually shown to be anabolic.
Ginsentabol?„? 333 mg Ginsentabol, the trademarked name of ThermoLife's Korean Red Ginseng extract, is the third ingredient listed on the label of the new E-BOL. Ginsentabol is standardized to provide a minimum of 10% ginsenoside Rd, a triterpene glycoside which is considered to be the most anabolic ginsenoside studied to date. Ginsentabol's content of ginsenoside Rd has been verified by HPLC.
Somniferabol?„? 100 mg Next on the list of ingredients is Somniferabol, the trademarked name of ThermoLife's Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) extract standardized for 2.5% withanolides. Somniferabol is manufactured using a unique method of extraction that makes it even stronger than the material used in the popular original formula, which yielded 1.5% withanolides. As expected, HPLC tests have been performed to verify the withanolide content of ThermoLife's material. Like every other plant extract in the new formula, Ashwagandha been added on the basis of its dual adaptogenic-anabolic properties. It also modulates nitric oxide activity and displays neuroprotective properties. One of the withanolides, known as Withaferin A, inhibits NF-KB, a complex of cellular proteins involved in the regulation of muscle atrophy, among other things.
Ionobol 100 mg Ionobol is the trademarked name of ionol, also known as 4-hydroxy-3, 5-di-tert-butyltoluene, or, more commonly, butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT). Ionol is a synthetic antioxidant with lipophilic properties. It is frequently used in fragrances and flavors. Studies suggest that Ionol displays anabolic and anti-catabolic properties. Ionol also helps maintain the potency of the rest of E-BOL's ingredients.
Rostanabol 20 mg Rostanabol is the trademarked name of (25 R)-5alpha-spirostan-2alpha, 3beta, 5alpha-triol-6-OH, also known more simply as 6-keto diosgenin. ThermoLife was the first company to introduce this substance to the bodybuilding supplement marketplace. These properties have been documented in studies published by the same scientists at the Institute of the Chemistry of Plant Substances who studied and named turkesterone.
Vitamin C 333 mg Vitamin C has been added to E-BOL to provide its ingredients with further antioxidant protection and increase the half life (the time a compound stays active) of the active ingredients in E-BOL. Vitamin C has the unique ability to order make one's urine more acidic. This is important because when the urine becomes acidic it will decrease the ionized percent of acidic compounds.
Name: Aaron Perschbacher
Height: 6?€™ 1?€?
Weight: 181.5 lbs
Sunday: OFF or Back/Biceps (If im feeling good through the week)
Thursday: OFF or Chest/Triceps (If im feeling good through the week)
The reason I do Legs only 1 day a week is because my legs have always felt like they need 1 full week off before they feel great again plus they have been my strong suit in the past. Also I may do shoulders on a Chest/Tris day if I feel up to it. I am also using a specific loading pattern for a few of my lifts.
For my 3 main meals of the day I strive for between 800-900 calories and my goal for the entire day is around 3000-3250, but if I can get more I will. Main part lunches and dinners are usually tuna, turkey breast, chicken breast, or a lean cut of steak, such as flank steak. Sides are potatoes, steamed veggies, green beans, or corn. Snacks include peanuts/peanut butter, string cheese, cottage cheese, granola bars... etc. I have been using this diet for the past several months and it is working very well so I am reluctant to change it although I have slightly tweaked it here and there. Macros are 45/35/20 (Carbs/Protein/Fats)
Supplements (other than E-Bol):
Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey
AST Multi Pro 32x
Lots of food and Sleep
Goals while on E-Bol: As of right now I had only 1 bottle but I hope to get another before my 25 days is up. But I plan on seeing a lot in the way of strength gains and maybe a little size. My overall goal is to be able to bench 225 1RM (currently at 215 1RM) on January 1, 2010. If I do run this for 50 days I would love to gain 5+lbs of very lean muscle.
I will Update my log between 3-5 times a week. If you have any questions feel free to ask. LOG officially starts with tomorrows workout. Free reps to who ever follows!!!
