I've been chosen to test Nutrabolics new preworkout formula : Deca Stack
Nutrabolics has been kind enough to send me a free tub to review and even thrown in 6 samples of isobolic whey isolate protein to try, which I will post a short review about later...
Even if it's a sponsored log, meaning that I didn't pay for the product, I'm gonna give an unbiased and honest review about the product, being negative or positive. I have no intentions to hype a product since I never did it in any of my logs, sponsored or not.

Since I'm currently bulking, I will be aiming for 4200-4500 calories daily which is fairly easy aiming for a 40/40/20% macronutriments breakdown since I'm currently trying to minimize fat gains (clean bulking).Also getting everything from clean sources listed higher (No candies,alcohol or anything else cheating). I'm also CONSISTANT about it. Nothing like missing a meal or something like that. I'm having a bit of trouble eating as much on off day though...
I will be posting a daily macronutriments breakdown to give you an idea of what is going on excepting during the weekend. I think a log in incomplete without it because if I say a product doesn't work and I'm actually eating 1500 calories but not showing it, people could think the product isn't good while actually their diet isn't in check.
I will be allowing no more than one (1) cheat meal weekly probably consisting of something like a subway sandwich or something like that (No fatty fast food, ice cream, chocolate, candies)...Alcohol is not considered a cheat meal and won't be taken at all since it's counterproductive.
I will drink at least 2 gallons of water each day drinking at least 0.5 during my workout
During the log, I will be using the PRRS system which is a 3 week cyclic program. It consist of a power week (P), a rep range week (RR) and a shock week (S). I've been using this programfor some time now and it's still giving me good results thus far as far as size and strenght is concerned. For that reason, I will continue using that training protocol.
I like trying a lot of supplements. I tried a lot and will try a lot more in the future
Supplements I Will be taking in this log:
-Optimum Opti-Men (Multivitamin)
-Higher Power CEE (During weekend and post-workout)
-Now Fish Oil (2g/day)
-Controlled Labs Glycergrow (Have been taking it for a long time)
Supplements Of this kind I already tried:
Controlled Labs Green Bulge/White Blood Combo
Controlled Labs Green Magnitude
Gaspari Nutrition Superpump250
I didn't try a lot of creatine since I'm the kind of guy who like to take what works for me often since I don't want to waste money on a product that isn't working for me. For that reason, even If I've been running creatine for a long time, I've been running either bulk CEE or a controlled labs combo. I also took a couple of V12 tubs when I started training a while back.
Evaluation of the product
I will give my first impressions on the products about the taste and mixability of the product, which even if it's no big deal in the purchase of a supplement, is always interesting to know.
I will then give my opinion on what the Deca Stack is advertised for : Strenght gains, Size Gains, Energy, Pump And Focus in the gym...I will rate those 5 criterias each workout
