I just ordered my Indigo-3G, so I haven't received it yet. I'm keeping it simple, taking Indigo-3G only with adequate carbs and nutrition based on what I have read. I want to isolate Indigo-3G to see what results I get that I can directly attribute to it.

I train early morning every day using basic lifts that work best for me, going heavy 4 days a week, and lighter 3 days. I also typically do some light work at night including pushups and pullups to get some added blood flow for recovery. My perspective is basic, consistent, and keep lifting heavy. I'm one of those guys that can bench 340-350, but doesn't look like it. I am hoping Indigo will give me some added mass for better performance with good recovery while leaning out some.

I lift in my garage, so my gym is never crowded. I have a rack with free weights, some DBs and a dip stand. My goal is to bench press 2X my bodyweight. I call it my Bench Press Over/Under: press over 400 pounds, weigh under 200 pounds. My bench was at 365, but I developed neck pain, which I realized was due to strain while doing heavy singles of 350, so I cleaned up my form and dropped my singles to 330. I am hoping Indigo will help me safely increase my weights to reach my goal.

I enjoy lifting, so motivation is not difficult for me. It's just a part of what I do. My workouts are relatively brief with little rest time, which allows me to go at it every day. If I feel wiped one day, I will just stretch and do a handful of light sets to stimulate added blood flow for recovery. Because I have been doing this for a while, my lifting and diet are a little more intuitive given my past experience of what I know works for me. I tend to eat moderate to lower levels of carbs, so that has to be modified with Indigo, but the rest of my diet is simple and basic.

I turn 50 in 7 months and I wouldn't mind looking my best by then. I will add pictures soon and keep updates on my experience. I'm looking forward to it. I have had success with HOT-ROX, Carbolin 19 as well as other Biotest products in the past, so I expect very positive results going forward.

And so it begins. I got my order and started taking Indigo yesterday, 8/9/13. Here are my early AM shots for the BEFORE pictures. I weighed in at an even 201.

Three days into this, and the two obvious experiences are the elevated body temperature I experience when working out after taking my morning dosage, and my body's ability to manage a higher level of carbs. I don't seem to have the puffiness or bloat I can get after ingesting more carbs. My workout performance is the same, and I will be looking to add more volume in heavier weights and a few more reps. I like my set and rep ranges now, so I will mostly bump reps by 1-2 and look to increase weights as my ability improves.

As an example, on heavy days, I pyramid bench press to singles of 330 pounds. I was at 350, but I backed off due to the neck pain I mentioned in an earlier post, so I would like to safely get back to that level and exceed it. I will post experiences and pictures if I have anything interesting to report. I appreciate reading others' experiences and ideas. Thank you for this forum.
