  1. would work fine, really no issues at all there. depending on your fat choices it can work out nice, just dont want to rely tooo much on heavy omega (dammit cant recall whether 3 or 6) oils as that may counter some of the AA cascading inflammation effect

    Likewise. My cycle was with lots of Leucine & BCAA's/Glutamine and didn't have much DOMS, although I did notice a bit more soreness when I increased the # of reps. I would rather not have to drop the Leucine or BCAA's if I were to do another run, so that's good to hear Rodja.

  3. Over the last week I've been starting to show signs of overtraining (insomnia, lack of appetite, lethargy, and stagnate strength despite taking X-Factor), so I was thinking of taking a week off or doing a de-load week. Should I still dose X-Factor? How much will it interrupt the cycle?

  4. keep taking it

    1) It will interrupt the cycle

    2) Overtraining on X Factor will be impossible to do. Take some rest. I suggest going off XF and train light. Get 10-12 hrs sleep and naps during the day.

    3) Get off stims if you're on them.

    Ok, so just stop X-Factor for the week then pick up where I left off on the 1st bottle? Should I go ahead and keep that 3rd bottle to re-start a full 50 day cycle? I do get about 10 hours a night, but VERY interrupted and I am always still tired when I wake up.

    No stims for the last few weeks. I had been using Recreate a few weeks ago, but not lately.

    I'm also stacking MassFX, I know this isn't the AX forum, but should I still dose it? I would think it'd help recovery.

    Use the Mass FX if you want, but abort the XF IMO.

    Train, and eat more, sleep more. Take naps, and naps and naps. If you can crash in lunch time, do so. This will greatly help.

    Take a month of rest, and eat properly. Train light, otherwise, you might risk losing hard earned muscle.

    Ok, so save the remaining X-Factor and grab an additional bottle and re-start the cycle after a few weeks?

    This is what I would do.

  10. I struggle with a little bit if tendonitis and I've been taking fish oil and cissus to keep it under control...do I risk inflaming it more by taking XF?

    Yes, I would not risk it..

  12. Hi, I was wondering if someone could shoot me a link pertaining to L-Tryptophan and X-Factor. I picked both up in my order today and then find out they might interact (d'oh).

    I would not even think of that.

    Tryptophan is found in turkey. I did a XF cycle with plenty of it without any difference in terms of gains etc..

    You're good to go!

  14. Hello, i would also like to try xfactor but what is tendonitis?? I have a slight pop in my left elbow joint due to abusing the french press to heavy. Its been there for a few years but nothing major. Not if this is tendonitis, but could i still use xfactor at 3 caps a day??

    Thanks

    1- Talk to your doctor see what is the problem

    2- Make a decision based on your doc's advice.

    If you have tendonitis, forget about X Factor. Forget about dosing less thinking it will be fine.. Just be carefull bro. You still could stop if it hurts too much, but better be safe than sorry!!

  16. I see what you say. I read a little about tendointis, mm im not sure but i think is not my case. I dont have any pain, and in fact it is just a slight pop when i do a lower rep 4-6 on the skull crushers. Im not sure what it is, but what im sure is that it has to do with the left joint, is just a little stiff but no pain and like i said it shows on those low rep ranges and that particular exercise. When i go hig reps or do other exercises this does not exist.
    Still, thanks for the advice.
    Another question, is xfactor good for cutting ?? would it still benefit someone on a calorie deficit or is it just for bulking?? if so what can one expect??
    thanks again

  17. x factor would be great for cutting!

    If you're not having any issues with inflamation/soreness then x factor would be a great addition to your stack.

    Yes. XF is good for cutting. But be warned. Appetite goes way up, and soreness as well, so you have to be extra dedicated

  19. I read that berberine (anabolic pump) is not go to take with AA. True? What about banaba (p-slin)?

  20. AP and PSlin are fine from my experience.

  21. Hey JJohn. Why is the bulk x factor on nutraplanet so cheap now? Is it different from the molecular nutrition one? Also i have some tendonitous in my hamstring and right shoulder, but wana use x factor. Would it hurt either one of those two conditions. The hammy inflames normally a lot.

    The bulk AA is the same. I would not use this with your condition though. I would look into something else.. Let me know if you have any more questions!

  23. Will NP being getting any more bulk?

  25. cool- i think the answer is no
