I'm no woman, but personally found SLIN to be more effective than AP...Glycobol is out there now, too, but I haven't tried that.
If you like creatine, AppNut has their Neovar which is a creatine as well as a nutrient partitioner.
I am currently using AP and it is awesome! You can eat more carbs and lose fat at the same time. I have noticed a difference in just 3 weeks.
I would DEFINATELY recommend it to any female!
Thanks everyone, decided to try it but had to abort after 2 days LOL Took it as it says, 15 mins before CHO meal but found made me jittery and on edge a bit (kinda weird feeling) and didnt feel in mood to work out which is quite unusual. I followed instructions exactly like it says, so I'v no idea what the reason is......my boyfriend started to take it at the same time and has no side affects at all but feels his workouts are much better so dont know what im doing wrong?
Yeah, more carbs!
I had a pre workout shake which contains whey and ground oats.Theres approx 100g of oats is about 60g of CHO so dont think its the carbs. (before you say anything i know a shake isnt ideal i normally eat raw but was under pressure so had a shake! )How many grams of carbs did you have? Maybe you didn't have enough.
Dont feel light-headed, its like im getting a sort of buzz off it LOL perfectly fine if i was going out at night but not during day ;-) feel jittery and lethargic but not faint at all...........maybe its just not for me and should try glycobol instead like was suggested,Sounds like hypoglycaemia to me. Shelly, did you get a light-headed feeling too/feel faint at all?
My wife started AP a week ago and started PowerFULL this past Monday. She is a very competitive woman. For the last.....2.....3 weeks (I'm in school time runs together some for me) I've been training her at the local gym. I havent been holding back. Training her hardcore with no mercy and making sure the diet is clean and she's eating enough. I know its "early" on in her cycle but damn. She's made some big strength gains already. I dont know if it's the AP and PF or just the natural course of her working out and doing it balls to the wall. She max pressed on flat bench the other day........135 lbs. She's always been strong on bench. I was prompted to get her to do a max press b/c her regular set on bench went up 15 lbs (after the PF). Biceps are her weak point. She was even up 10 lbs on her curls. She was rather shocked to pick up the weights and say they were too light when we got to the curls. Since someone was asking about women and AP, I thought I'd throw that out there. We are taking measurements etc and watching her close thru the cycle. It should be an interesting cycle As a side note, I dont know if it is the AP or what, but she was getting VERY sore from our training and now that she's on the AP, she has suddenly become much less sore even though the intensity is the same.
The decrease in DOMS is more likely due to PowerFULL, since it's a GH booster.
On that note, it's good to see that some women out there push themselves as hard as they can and aren't afraid of trying (or doing) heavy weights!
I definitely remember PowerFULL cutting down on my recovery time. It's good stuff. Unfortunately I haven't seen too much from the recent batches of 1-carboxy I've tried, or their SuperSap.

Clients are getting wacked out of their minds, breaking all personal records.
With no bloat. Only take on training days.
Off day ?I have them do 3-4 grams of lysine on empty stomach to prevent the inbalance of argine to lysine ratio ..

And I already have a good pre and post-training supplement regime thanks (I have a prewokout and creatine product; and although glutamine has not been shown to be conclusively effective for recovery, my protein powder contains it), one that produces far better results for me than this would!
As for breaking personal records, one can do that quite effectively withOUT supplements. And if they can ONLY do it whilst using supplements, then they're NOT pushing themselves hard enough in training.
