    Guess that's what happens when a company consistently puts out effective supplements. I have not in my 28 years used any other supplements better than that of the Finaflex company. Everything that is released is a home run and people are starting to realize this....not to mention the customer support and company representatives DW...DOC all around plain ol' good stuff!!!

    Fenaflex seems like a reputable company but I would like to know more about the company and the people behind it. Their website doesn't tell you very much.

    All I know is the guys on here are extremely knowledgable educated and helpful. They are clearly at the top of their game in every aspect from training to nutrition to PROPER andSAFE use of their products, and others as well. I haveused the alc+cla and love it.. I will be using the pro xan xt for beginning my summer cut. And when I do return to using ph's, I am sold on 550xd and epi v bc of the novel ingredients and great results demonstrates on these forums and others, as well as their reps abolilty and willingness to assist me in creating the perfect "tailored to me" cycle. I even said id rather use a other companies AI for post, and they still helped me.. Just very nice and smart men here.

    I am in no way related to this company either and hCe not received anything from them.. Just one satisfied customer who appreciates good quality business and products which is rare now a days.

    I understand your concerns my friend, but I usually do my best to answer any and all questions within my power! I do know that there are certain copy-write type of things that we do not disclose (hence proprietary blends), but minus that we are pretty open, I mean we are not going to share our sources and business secrets, but as to our ingredients, they are tested in raw form by an independent laboratory, then again they are batch tested when we receive them from our manufacturing company, therefore our products are double tested for purity and we proudly stand behind the fact that what we say is in our products is what is in our products!

    So I've spent the last month and a half lurking around this AB researching my first PH cycle. After seeing the great reviews, and awesome support provided by Scotty and DW I chose Finaflex. So I ordered 3 bottles of 1-Andro and 2 bottles of 550XD and as of right now 1 bottle of PCT Black. I also take 320mg of Saw Palmetto, 500mg of Milk Thistle, 250mg of Hawthorne Berry daily. I also know you suggest Pure Test for PCT as well. My question is how should I run this? The 550 first 3 caps ED followed by the 1-Andro 4 caps ED? The 550 and 1-Andro at the same time 2 caps each every day ED? Or something different like maybe the 550 by itself and save the 1-Andro for a later date. Regardless I plan to log this adventure here.

    Thanks we do our best, first we want people to get the best results possible from our products.. that's just good business if you as me. Secondly I would not want to see someone run into some kind of problem so I am glad the products are safe but also I and Al will be extra carefull with asvise we give. Even though our products are safer than a lot ot others they still need to be used responsibly...

    I need to know your age and lifting and cycling experience before I can make an informed decision...

    Well I'll be 32 on St Patty's day. I've been lifting on and off since I was 15. Currently I'm doing a whole body workout 3 days a week. As far as cycle experience with PH's I have none, one of the reasons I chose Finaflex.

    Ah then you have virgin receptors so do one or the other for 6 weeks I would say no higher that 3 ed, save the rest for later. You don't want to be going to hard first cycle. I you choose 1 andro run PCT Black 1 cap ed during cycle. The 550 has a lot of those support supps in it already. PCT Black and PUre Test for PCT should be fine but you can add other things if you feel the need.

    I'm not really refering to proprietary blends, I'm more interested in the people behind the company. Some supplement companies are nothing more than a mom and pop operation ran from the basement. As with any company the quality of people behind the company are what counts.

    Yah the direction of Finaflex is they want to be a major player, (my impression) so they are going to do things right... you won't find that the products are under dosed or poorly designed. I use to think some of the ingredient combinations were kind of strange when I first read them but when I used the products the design seem to make more sense. There is more synergy here than some might think...

    BBB... Yo Bro, check out our FINAFLEX FaceBook fan page, we just got back from the Arnold where we shared a booth with one of the largest national distributors in the South LoneStar, no other companies shared their booth with LoneStar. So we are definitely a presence in the supplement industry and we know the right people and have made the right connections, we have done so by hard word, determination and holding fast to our integrity and the quality we put into our products for the sakes of our customers, which in the end is what sends them back to us making them life-long return customers, call it what you want, I call it good business! Also another reason why a guy like me (natural born helper & people pleaser) does so well with this company as their online representative and I handle their online and telephone customer service department as well!

    Besides, I make things fun, because lets face it... "I'm not perfect, but I am getting dangerously close!" Bahahaha, I crack myself up!!!

    I don't have the time or desire to do a log, but periodic updates are fine. I also don't like all the BS contained logs. I just like the facts. I have just begun my third week of a Fenaflex stack. I take 3 - 550's daily with meals and 1 - 1-ando at bedtime. I have gained about 2-3 lbs since I started. I have been waking up every morining (and sometimes during the night) with a raging boner that almost hurts. I have to share it with the wife to get it under control. I feel great all day long and my lifts in the gym are going up on almost every exercise. I'm also finding that my energy levels are much higher and I don't need as much sleep as usual. Most things take about two weeks to kick. So this next week will really be interesting. Remember I'm not a spring chicken or a newbe, I've been lifting for over 20 years and I'm going on 63 years old my next birthday. I usually respond well to most PH's, even better than real gear. I have read where older people have more of the enzymes necessary to convert PH's. I don't know if this is true but they seem to work well for me. I have high hopes for this stack. I have PCT Black for a PCT. I also take a mild PCT daily in the form of Diesel Test Pro. It contains a low dose of DHEA which I like at my age.

    I oftenget criticized for my honesty. I have been banned from a couple of sites because I wouldn’t “candy coat” my results, so far AM has put up with me. There are some companies I won’t buy from, USP is one. I don’t like there over-the-top overhype of their products and I don’t like all the ambiguous ingredients they use making it nearly impossible to do research on your own. Some people love their products I’m just not one of them.

    Yah and I think we have disagreed on that somewhat doesn't mean I love everything they put out, but I do use their Cissus and BCAA's are a good product. I know the big hype thing bothers some. I did do well on Prime for a while then it just seemed to stop wroking for me. The release of Pink Magic had me feeling nothing where the test product had some good vascularity and some very inconsistant rapid strength gains but winddow on them was very small. AP is the only nutrieant re-partitioner that I ever really felt working.

    I'm still skeptical of Armistane. I know its in 550-XD and I applaude Redefind for including an AI, but this stuff has been around for a while now and there is still know blood tests nor any independent testing confirming its efficacy. I'm certain that it has AI properties but a lot of things are classified as AI's some are much more effective than others. Whitout testing how do you determine an effective dosage?

    Currently we are letting our joints tell us but you're right we need to see some results on paper to feel assured the dosing is spot on.

    I agree with this, after about 7-10 days of taking more than 2 caps/day, I start to feel my joints clicking and my left shoulder (weakest joint) really gets to aching after any and every upper body workout, those are my "tell-tales" so to speak, all about knowing your body and listening when it speaks!

    Achey joints is not a very scientific method of administration.

    I've been waking up every morning for the past four days with a headache. I rarely ever get headaches. I think it may the 1-andro I take before bed. I'm going to lay off the 1-andro for a couple days and see if it goes away. I've really been sleeping hard since I started so I may be that I sleep to long in the same position (on my stomach).

    The only thing that comes to mind is maybe your bp is up or you're not getting enough water but you're not taking anything that would cause dehydration that I know of.

    OK, I agree with you saying that achey joints is not scientifical, LoL, never claimed it was, just saying it is my way and a bunch of other gentlemen here on the forum's way of staying in tune with their body's, not all of us have the access and/or money to get our estrogen levels checked weekly or bi-weekly which is how fast they can swing in one direction (high/low) to the other.

    As far as your headaches, check your blood pressure!

    As far as sleeping on your stomach, WoW... Huge Chiropractic No..No, the most horrible musculoskeletal position for your spine EVER!!!

    I check my BP daily normally not a problem. I think my headache is being caused by a "crick" in my neck. Probably because I'm sleeping much deeper than normal. I'm usually a light sleeper and toss and turn all night. I know sleeping on my stomach is bad but I've done it years.

    If it keeps coming back I would put my money on a spinal &/or hip mis-alignment!

    Yes... Go see a CHIRO my friend, but shop around, get references from sports related people, get a sports specific CHIRO, makes all the difference in the world!
