The Ultimate X-Factor FAQ v2.0

Page 3 of 4 First 1234 Last

  1. I finished a bottle of X-Factor and am now 2 weeks into a bottle of Max-Out. Results have been pretty good. Nothing too bad as far as DOMS, but for the last couple of days I've been having some stomach bloating and soreness.

    It may well be coincidental, but I wanted to see if anyone else had a similar experience. Is it possible that the inflammatory effect can apply to the stomach as well as joints/skeletal muscles? I'm hoping it's just a chance thing that passes soon.

    Hey, any chance you can help out us uneducated masses here: Cissus + X factor/ArA...No go? ?

  3. This is a late update, but I found the answer to the stomach bloating and pain issue.

    It turned out to actually be a ruptured appendix. The pain was passing and not near as bad as I always heard appendicitis was.

    I had to be in the hospital for the removal and then again to drain a couple of abscesses, but it's been almost 2.5 months and I've been back in the gym and back to almost full strength. A word of warning to all....dont ignore pain or assume it's just soreness, like I did...lol.


  4. Wow sorry to hear.. Hope you get back at it in force.. Let us know how it goes man..

    Thanks, man. I'm good to go now. Been back in the gym for around 6 weeks or so and making good progress.

  6. Couple of questions since I'm actually following a low enough fat diet to run this.

    I'm currently running a carb cycling diet for a recomp/cut. I think this would work well with it but haven't seen much around using X-Factor during a fat loss phase.

    Last, I take Wobenzym which is a systemic enzyme therapy supplement. It isn't an anti-inflammatory, but more of an inflammation balancer within the body. Here are a couple of links to systemic enzyme therapy in general and I'm wondering if I should quit it while taking X-Factor or if it isn't going to affect it.

    and the ingredients of Wobenzym N:

  7. I don't see how it would have any detrimental effects. Halodrol with X Factor is pretty insane if you ask me. When you stack AA with an AAS/(whatever you want to call them) you get a really good synergy. I will be starting soon the new X Factor hopefully it'll be while I'm on cycle. Yeah even I am still waiting on it lol.

  8. Hey I know the last postings in this thread are awhile ago, but just wondering about the fish oil interaction and AA... I'm taking Carlson's twice a day, but I was wondering if its fine to substitute the fish oils with the lipid stabil? Any problems taking lipid stabil with x factor?

    In the last couple of years we have actually found reasonable amounts of fish oil to compliment ArA, and we even included it in our newest version of the product, X Factor Advanced.

  10. What is a reasonable amount? Is 2 to 3 grams a day of combined epa/dha too much?

    2g would be the upper limit.

    4-6 caps a day, my personal fav dosing is splitting it up pre and postWO

    interesting, what advantages have you found with this dosing have over all 4 preWO?
    and I train first thing in the AM,fasted w/~30-35g of intra/BCAA's...would you think all 4 in this instance would have a good effect? How about dosing 6on WO days, and 2 on nonWO days? thoughts?

  15. Did you mean 2 grams total including all dietary sources? I am vegetarian, so I'll be using the original x-factor with algae derived DHA and a boswellia supplement.

    What sort of dosages should I use?

  16. Also, reading the faq, should other fat sources be of a specific variety?

    Should I not be supplementing w/ CLA? How about composition of fat i my diet? Right now I mostly try to get saturated fat and monounsaturated in an equal mix.

    In all honesty, having tried a multitude of dosing protocols, whether you do all 4 pre or 2 pre/2post you will get essentially the same results.

    If you wanted to try 6 caps on workout days and 2 on off days that is fine, it should work well for you. However, 4 daily is the recomendation and is your best bet.

    supplementing with 2g a day is no problem, Ive seen people dose it much higher with no problem, but never in any circumstance does dosing over 4g of fish oil providing any more benefit anyway. It may sound odd, but a lot of people over do fish oil.

    What sort of dosages should I use?

    Again, just dont go overboard. A few grams of CLA wont kill your XF cycle. But if your consuming monstrous amounts of fats with anti inflammatory properties like olive oil then you may be mitigating the effects.

  18. Thanks for the reply.

    A few more questions:

    1. I am going to use X-FActor pre-workout (30-45 min pre).
    I also like using ultima. Can take these at the same time, or should I wait some time between each. This would be on an empty stomach.

    2. What are some other things to avoid. I take the following w/ some regularity. Can you tell me if there is an issue with any?

    a) Cissus (for joint health)
    b) Anabolic Pump/Slin-Sane Nutrient Partitioning
    c) ALA (For nutrient partitioning)

    If there is anything else you know of, or any other advice; please let me know.

    1.-No interaction with ultima whatsoever, ultima is a great product and will enhance your run with X Factor!

    2.-The only one of those supplements that has ever been even a possibility of being a no go with ArA is cissus, but from everything I have seen even cissus will not mitigate the effects of ArA.

    Any more questions, just ask away! I've used 6 cycles of this stuff thus far, so I have a ton of experience with it first hand in addition to the knowledge Bill shares with us reps.

  20. Great! Thanks for the info.

    Last question for now. I was planning on taking 4 caps 45 min pre-workout on an emptyish stomach. Is this the best protocol, or should I be taking it w/ a meal?

    I don't know if it's the best but I am currently taking 4 caps 1 hour pre-workout with some coconut oil to improve bioavailability, even if just a bit.

    Myself and many others have tried to notice any difference from taking it with or without a meal and the verdict is still out, it will be effective either way and I have noticed no increase or decrease in efficacy of the product whether or not I take it with food.

    4 caps preWO is the most popular dosing method as of late.

  23. I posed this on bb, but no takers on it just yet....thoughts on combining XFA w/ecdy...? I read a log (dacookie) where Mixel stated ecdy has high anti-inflamatory properties (same log that had XFA/ecdy being used at the same time)...and finally found (google) other sites stating this as well...but wondering if there might be any synergy b/t the two...or if it would hinder gains at all...just thinking ahead for the next time I run this

  24. honestly i think XFA and E-Bol used in conjunction with high frequency training would be insane for gains and rival PH's
