    My experience with AtLarge and more when the supplements come in

    Hey guys. I wanted to give you a quick explanation of my experience with AtLarge.

    I was curious about AtLarge's Opticen and ETS products. I have not had good experiences with most MRPs and am in love with NLarge2. I really wanted to give Opticen a try and wasn't sure whether or not I would like it, so Chris offered to send me a sample package with my order of ETS. I liked the fact that he did offer to me an alternate choice so that I am satisfied with the taste before I bought the product, but since I am running out of my NLarge, I decided that I would take the chance and go ahead and get it anyway. Chris has PM-ed or e-mailed me very quickly with any question I may have had. I had also wanted pricing for overnight delivery. He not only got that info for me, but he also got pricing for 2 and 3 day deliveries. I really liked the fact that he has gone out of his way to keep a customer satisfied.

    The products were also sent out the same day. The only thing that I didn't like was that the shipment was rescheduled causing a delay. This was in no way their fault. Damn UPS. You can never count on them.

    I am very anxious to get my products and try them out so that I can let you guys know what kind of quality these products have. I can't wait.

    I'll keep you guys posted.

    Thanks Chris for the great service.

    No, I just use half a serving with one to one and a half cups of 2% milk. Anymore, as you mentioned and it gets a bit too thick for my liking.

    OK, i've just gotten back into the gym after close to a month or resting my shoulder. On Thursday, i went in and did chest/tris. I've been taking ETS since I started up again. The DOMS were all gone by this morning allowing me to work chest/tris again. I'm very excited. My DOMS usually last for close to a week. I'm very impressed with it.

    Now for Opticen...

    The taste is great. Personally, I don't like a protein drink/MRP to be thick. As it is, my appetite isn't very big, so i prefer it a water downed one. NLarge 2 was perfect. Opticen is too thick for me when mixed with milk. Its like myoplex. If I put in 2 scoops with 2 cups water, it goes down very nicely. As i'm sitting here, i'm having one with 3 scoops and 2 cups water. It is a little thick, but its still ok. If anyone has any worries about the taste, trust me, DON'T.

    One other thing...

    I'm not sure if there's any correlation between ETS and me being tired. I'm just wondering if anyone else here is very groggy and tired in the morning?

    Tima, you may not experience that effect as with any drug or supplements the effects will vary individually.

    It would be odd for it to make you feel fatigued.

    It doesn't really make me feel fatigued. Also, it may not even be from the supplement itself, but since I've been taking it, when I wake up in the mornings, it sometimes feels like my eyes are burning and they dont want to open up. It may possibly be from lack of sleep. These past couple days haven't been like that though, which is good. It's more possible that I don't want to get up to go to work. : )

    I really did enjoy the fact that my DOMS did go away as quick as they did though. I was able to work chest/tris again 4 days after I had previously done them. Specially with that being my first time in the gym after a month or more, that's very impressive. My DOMS usually last a week for chest.

    I am going to continue taking ETS and see what happens. I'll keep updating here.

    Chris, what from ETS is it that gives all these people a refreshing feeling? Is it the MicroLatin itself?

    I cannot say for sure but I suspect it is the zinc and/or magnesium as ZMA users will often note similar effects.

    We have not studied that particular effect.
