2008 was a good year. I had the best fitness year of my life. I had really just started getting into supplements, I just started taking my diet and the gym seriously, and I confess, I had a secret weapon called P6 Black™.
It was 5 years and hundreds of workouts ago, so although my memory is a little hazy, there are a few things I recall in vivid detail. I had been on P6 Black™ for about a month. I remember strength through the roof and veins through my arms, hitting the gym incline and pressing about 90 lbs. more than I ever had before, and for easy reps. Then, setting the bar down and without any rest, I’d grab the heaviest dumbbells in the gym and shoulder press those bad boys for another easy set.
I remember walking to a local hangout and catching my reflection in a store window as I passed by; my sleeves tighter than they used to be; my muscles fuller and my confidence at an all time high. Most of all, I remember that all I wanted to do was lift.
God, that stuff was good. And then it was gone. The rules changed, the focus of the industry changed, companies changed—and seriously, for the better. Innovation became mandatory and Cellucor stayed good at it. But even so, even with hit product after hit product, I admit I missed my P6 Black™.
