    Yes, it is good, you should try it! Another thing that is good is if you take some Vanilla Fat Free Greek Yogurt (big tub, I believe 24oz) and only add 2 scoops of whatever flavor protein powder you want, any more protein and it kills the yogurt flavor, no need to add splenda, already sweet enough, but I guess if you like things extra sweet you could play with that part of the recipe!

    Hey... this is a SHOUT-OUT to everyone!!! If you have any good healthy snacks or Recipes and wanna share them here... Please feel free to do so!

    Another Healthy Snack Idea...

    This is not something I do every night, but on those nights where I just have to snack on something, this is a much better alternative to chips and other crunchy snack foods...

    OK, so air-pop your popcorn (I know, dry, bland, not so tasty), but then when you are done, put that popcorn in a large bag of some sort, then add seasonings, I like lemmon pepper, garlic salt, & or Tony's Creole Seasoning, or the Mrs. Dash of your choice. Yes, it will settle to the bottom, but then you can use either Olive Oil flavored or Butter Flavored fat-free, calorie-free, cooking spray. Spray the top of the popcorn, then shake the bag and continue to repeat this until most if not all the seasoning is adhering to the popcorn. Now you are left with some tasty popcorn with no additional calories that typically come with stove-cooked, or bag-popped popcorn!

    All the Flavor and none of the unnecessary carbs, fat, & calories!!!

    Hey guys... I know this is older news, but for anyone who has never read this, it is an extremely good read and very relavent to our FINAFLEX PURE TEST...

    Patrick's Arnold's Take on D-Aspartic Acid
    by Patrick Arnold

    You may have read about D-aspartic acid here recently in MD, or you may have heard of it somewhere else. If not, let me just give you a quick review of it. D-aspartic acid is the enantiomer of the dietary amino acid l-aspartic acid. Essentially this means it is the mirror image of L-aspartic acid. D-aspartic acid occurs naturally in the bodies of animals and is made by the action of the enzyme D-aspartic racemase upon dietary L-aspartic acid. D-aspartic acid is known to concentrate most specifically in neuroendocrine tissues such as the pituitary gland, pineal gland, and testes.

    Recent research has shown the D-aspartic acid serves as a specialized neurotransmitter in parts of the nervous system involved in hormone production. It has been shown to stimulate the release of LH and GH from the pituitary gland. Furthermore, it has also been demonstrated to have a direct stimulating effect in the testes upon testosterone production.

    I have been studying D-aspartic acid for about 10 years, and long ago theorized that it had the potential to raise testosterone levels in humans. I also in recent years have been experimenting with the product on athletes (more on that below). Within that time period, I submitted a patent application for its use in humans as a testosterone elevator.

    Nothing had ever been publically published demonstrating that oral administration of D-aspartic acid can increase testosterone production in humans— that is until October 27th of last year. At that time, a study was published (Reproductive Biology and Endocrinology 2009, 7:120) in Italy, clearly demonstrating that oral administration of D-aspartic acid increases testosterone in humans, lending credence to the claim of my patent application.

    The Italian study showed that doses of approximately 3 grams a day resulted in a rise of testosterone that peaked on day 12 (the last day of the study), at a level 42 percent greater than day zero. LH levels were also increased significantly. The study used 23 men, with all but three of them showing significant increases in testosterone. Furthermore, the levels of testosterone were still significantly increased three days after discontinuation of the D-aspartic acid. The data in the study strongly indicates that the amino acid builds up in target tissues over time, and then slowly decreases after administration is ceased.

    As I said before, for a few years before this study was published, I had been experimenting on athletes (as well as upon myself) with this amino acid. However, there were some differences between the way I was using the product and the way it was used in the Italian article.

    First off, my estimation of an active dosage was significantly higher. I based my doses on extrapolations from animal studies. What I mean by that is, I started with a dose that was used in a study that showed a demonstrable effect in hormone elevation in an animal. I then took that dose and did some rough calculations and estimations to arrive at what I believed would be an effective human dose.

    For instance, in a study in sheep, a D-aspartic acid dose of 44.4 mg/kg bodyweight was used, and in a rat, study doses of 133 mg/kg bodyweight were used. These doses unfortunately were by injection (no animal studies using oral D-aspartic acid had been published at the time), so I had to make a guess as to what oral bioavailability might be relative to injection. Furthermore, I had to do calculations using something called the body surface area (BSA) normalization method to adjust for species differences in active doses between humans, sheep, and rats.

    What I came to was a dose of 10 to 20 grams of D-aspartic acid a day. Now keep in mind that I am trying to determine a dose that has a reasonable chance of being effective— I am by no means trying to determine the minimally effective dosage, or the exact dosage for optimal results.

    Another difference between my use of the amino acid and that of the Italians was that I did not use actual D-aspartic acid. At the time, D-aspartic acid simply wasn't available at an affordable price, so I used DL-aspartic acid. DL- is also known as racemic, which essentially is comprised of 50 percent D-isomer and 50 percent L-isomer. This form was much cheaper overall, and to arrive at the desired dose, I simply used twice as many grams as I would have for pure D-aspartic acid.

    Now here is where the problem surfaced. You see, both D- and DL-aspartic acid are gritty, and sickly, sour-tasting powders. They will not dissolve in any liquids, and few athletes are willing to tolerate slugging down 20 to 40 grams of sour sand-like powder a day. Plus, even if they would get it down, chances are they're going to have some uncomfortable gastrointestinal problems.

    So I did a fair amount of research and came up with a clever way of derivatizing the product. I found a way to make what is known as a calcium chelate of the amino acid. What that achieved, I was increasing the water solubility from less than 1 gram/200 milliliters to greater than 1 gram/5 milliliters. That's an increase in solubility of over 40 times, which is pretty remarkable. What is also remarkable about this chelate is that it happens to be stable over a very wide pH range. Once converted to the calcium chelate, the amino acid became much more user-friendly.

    So at that point, I was able to get people to try it out on a more consistent basis. With the exception of some bodybuilders, most of the athletes taking the product were clean (drug-free) and the subjective feedback was very positive. Blood testosterone levels underwent significant elevations and recovery time was reduced for many users.

    Today, D-aspartic acid is available at a relatively affordable price. And with the publishing of that Italian study, the cat is out of the bag, so to speak. So I have decided to release the calcium chelate product to the general public. It will be an apple-flavored liquid that contains 4.5 grams D-aspartic acid per ounce.

    cool info - almost forgot about popcorn, i used to go thru bags of the stuff

    regarding DAA supplementation, anybody have any opinions regarding it's use during the last week of any ph/ds cycle? i've been noticing a few more recommendations where people are saying to start it before their cycle ends

    I agree with that philosophy... by starting a DAA regiment about 5 days or so before the end of a PH cycle is an awesome idea and I promote this all the way, in fact I have been saying this for quite some time. Here is my logic, when on a cycle of PH it raises your testosterone synthetically which also raises your estrogen (follows suite to keep the ratio in your body), well when you get off of the PH, you are left with no testosterone, because your natural production has ceased due to the fact that you have been getting more than what you need synthetically, and an increased level of estrogen. So by taking both our PCT Black & PURE TEST... starting them 5 days before the end of the cycle is key, you start lowering the levels of estrogen & kickstart the natural production of testosterone in your body to make the transition much smoother and healthier on your body, therefore lowering the risks if not eliminating them all together of having too much estrogen and not enough testosterone in the body! Also, in my opinion, the number one reason why people lose a lot of their hard earned gains after a cycle is because of improper or lack of PCT (post cycle therapy)!!!

    Proper Form/Technique...

    This is something that has been bothering me for quite some time now. I don't know if it just my own personal problem or is because I'm a Doctor of Chiropractic, either way it drives me absolutely crazy when I see people lifting with not just poor form, but with the most grotesk form I have ever seen, I mean horrible and more than 9/10 times it is in an attempt for this person/s to lift more weight than they should or need to be lifting in order to achieve what we are all in the gym for, break down the muscle tissue via (micro-trauma) and rest & feed these muscles so they will recover (bigger, faster, stronger). I found this video of a Gentleman (Ken Roebuck) on youtube who explains and demonstrates what I consider perfect form with his dead-lifts....


    Video by: Ken Roebuck

    Please feel welcome to share horror stories of people in your gym using horrible, even dangerous form, as well as disagreeing/debating my opinion on using better form if you truly feel that by lifting more weights with poor form you are building your muscles faster than by using less weight with better form, etc. If you come across a video of good or bad form that you feel is relevant to this post, by all means post and include your opinion, etc. I am posting this here so we may all share our opinions and learn!

    Hey doc, this is a PH? But from the bottle label claims it looks like a cycle assist. If it a PH then damn a PH with some cycle support bulit in would be nice.

    It does have cycle support, but keyword is support... so it does not replace the need for a PCT following a cycle, only supports healthy functions intra-cycle! So I repeat, because this is very important... a PCT will still be required following a cycle of the New FINAFLEX 550-XD Black!

    High Protein Pumpkin Pancakes...

    Ingredients:

    • 7.5 oz of canned pumpkin
    • 1/3 cup oatmeal, dry
    • 1/3 cup multigrain or whole wheat pancake mix
    • 1 scoop vanilla (or plain) protein powder
    • 4 egg whites
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
    • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
    Directions:

    2. Preheat a non‐stick skillet on medium heat, or use a large griddle. Pour the pancake mixture onto the pan or griddle to form 2 large pancakes.
    3. Flip each pancake as soon as it is firm enough to flip and the bottom side is lightly brown. Cook on medium heat and keep a close eye on them since they cook quickly and the outside burns easily.

    Training Tips & Motivational Speaking
    by: Atlanta, GA Local
    Toney Freeman


    As you all know and I have mentioned before, I have had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Toney as he frequents local gyms in the area and actually trained the entire year at the FORUM gym in Alpharetta, GA while I worked for the Chiropractor attached to the gym. This first video I take very seriously because I am 37yrs old and due to a torn pec, I too have had to change my style of lifting in accordance to my age and what my body could handle and recover from. Toney is a huge advocate of lifting lighter for higher reps and as you can see, it has not slowed down his progress...




    Yet another excellent video of Toney giving a motivational and educational seminar in Denmark where he makes a very excellent and solid opinion on the importance of Nutrition in Bodybuilding whether you are competing or just doing it to acquire the best body you can, you absolutely cannot and will not achieve the body you desire without proper nutrition and I really like the way he explains its importance...





    I find this information very important and relevant because it has sure helped me in my quest as an avid bodybuilder to both safely and effectively achieve the body I desire. I just hope this same information helps others out there as it has helped me!

    Adjustments I have made due to age, are a) 1 never go beyond form failure, b) I have lowered my volume c) I don't lift heavy all the time but use progressive patterns working my way up.

    You know I am an animal and would love to just tear it up all the time but now I have to plan ahead and work my way up to the bigger numbers, I use higher reps more often. I work fast so I can keep my intensity high. To tell you the truth I don't even know if all the extra work I idid was even neccessary. I will watch the videos and comment more later but I just wanted to chime in with some of my personal experience. Lifting hard and heavy all the time was tearing me to pieces, and it was high time I adjusted.

    I agree DW. I haven't had a chance to watch the video, but my switch from the hard and heavy has given me great results with much less wear and tear. I will post more after I get a chance to really read through and watch.

    Yah sometimes less is more, and one thing I have discovered is your joints age a lot faster than your muscles, you have to find ways to decrease joint trauma while maintaining hypertropy... not really that hard to do when you think about it. A lot of it's just getting over what is in our head.

    Yeah I am learning that low low volume with high uber high intensity does not work for me anymore. Don't get me wrong my muscles still love it but my joints curse me out. I am using different training techniques now. Shorter rest period acheiving cumulative muscle failure seems to be working really well right now. Here is an example of my upper body workout from last night.

    all rest periods are 30 second timed rest periods between sets and also between moving to secondary exercises.

    DB Incline Bench - 75x10 4 sets - by 4rth set the 10th rep was almost impossible in good form.
    Pec Deck 150x15, 150x8

    Wide Pronated Grip Pull Down - 165x10x3 sets 165x8
    Incline DB Shrugs - 55x15, 55x14

    Front Shoulder Press Nuetral Grip - 155x10, x10, x7>125x3, 125x8
    Lateral Raise Machine 80x15, x12

    Dips - 30, 20

    20 sets completed in 32 minutes

    Typically with this method the first and second set are not that hard somewhere in the middle of the 3rd set the fatigue sets in and the 4rth sets is work all the way through. My fourth set is maximum reps, and once I hit more than 10 I go up in weight. Secondary sets are just finishers or hitting from a different angle. So my joints don't take the abuse of the heavy weights but the muscles have to call upon all the fibers due to cumulative fatigue and the sarcoplasm and mitochondria are all pushed causing sarcoplasmic growth.

    Why is this? I find anything above my 3 rep max and the results are sub par. 5 I can get away with because my body can still remain pretty strict and I do the reps very slowly. But I remember my run with gvt and it made my joints cry.
    With all that contradicting stuff said I feel that going for higher reps does tend to keep you honest. Unless your trying to use weights for sports training feeling the weight over moving the weight will always lead to better results, be it less injury, or mote muscle activation. I still do like to train in the higher percentiles but that's because I'm a meathead.
    I think I'm goin to be using a pyramid type protocol. Tax my muscles then still work in the strength. My body doesn't know what amount I'm pushing but hopefully with the accumulated fatigue I still can get some good muscle stimulation.

    When you say why is this and say anything above my 3 reps max and results are sub par do you mean the if you lift heavier than your 3 rep max or if you go much higher on reps than 3? Also the results you speak of, what are they? Increased strength? Increased work capacity? Increased size?


    I mean 3 reps sets can be very beneficial and safe even for older people. It depends on how you are doing those 3 reps. Are you doing the 3 reps at 95% of your max or are you doing multiple sets of 3 reps increasing weight or sets until you can no longer accelerate the weight quickly? There is a HYUGE difference there. If using the acceleration method you are unlikely to get into the extremely heavy weights that are taxing your joints a lot. You are also stopping before you cause overtraining to your CNS.

    I use the three rep scheme for max load days. So I work up to a load where I can no longer hit 3 reps. Usually I'll do this in a power phase. I usually feel a lot more taxed then my muscles feel used. Like I have that spent feeling. I guess thats cns drain. But then again strength is basically that. Cns adaption. So I pretty much answered my own question lol.
    Thanks for reading kleen. I tend to ask those questions where the answer is right in front of me but I just don't connect the dots.

    Yeah the drained feeling is probably more from CNS being drained however all strength does not come from CNS efficiency at a movement. Once the efficiency has been developed the strength increase is typically the the result of the physical adaptation of the muscle fiber itself adding protein and increasing the thickness and strength of the contracting fibers. The sarcoplasm is the fluid and mitochondria and what not that fill those fibers and feed them so for the fiber itself to grow thier needs to be adequate fuel. Higher reps and or cumulative fatigue cause an increase in the sarcoplasm of the muscle. More mitochondria and fuel for the muscle fibers, also stretching the muscle fibers via the pump. Increasing ATP which in turn increases work capacity which increases overall stress on the muscle fiber which induces growth in the fiber itself. This is why it is also a good idea to go back and forth between higher rep training and concentrating on purely increasing strength. However one can just as easily work at increasing strength at ANY rep range which is what most people do not think is possible. Take for example my workout above I used 10 reps however I used it to increase work capacity by extreme limitation of my rest periods there limiting my ability to move a lot of weight. However if I were to rest 60 seconds my weights could have been substanscially higher, 2 minutes rest and again my weights would have been even that much more heavy. Many of the greats of the old days built a lot of natural muscle with heavy sets of 20 reps on bench, squats, dead lifts.

    Chris I have a feeling we're talking about similar things just looking at it in a different way. It's true I don't respond to things like DC training as my muscles are too mature for that low of volume. On the other hand I find extreme volume a big waste of time for me. I am all on board with the short rest periiods and progressive lifts, I love that shyte. Get in bash the crap out of yourself and get out. A lot of people when they say intensity they mean low reps heavy weight. This does not have to be the case, you can get intensity from short rest perionds, drop sets and super setting. I like to get everything sone in under an hour, 45 minutes if I can. I find I am making about as much progress as I can and never leave anything at the gym. That's the bottom like really.

    Oh definitely DW, we are talking about the same things for sure. I love working intensely in the gym and right now sheer weight is not the answer for me. So I increase it the same way you are, or with time under tension, a little higher reps, and just keep some method of measured progression involved in what training I am doing. Whether that be work in an amount of time, more reps, or more weight.

    Yah I figured, I am just loving Warrior, way more than I thought I would. I have never felt like I am doing all I can without doing too much the way I do with warrior. Especially phase 2. I get it done in 40 to 45 minutes and I am blazing all the way through, it is just fun...I look forward to the gym every time. Another thing that helps is I'm still looking pretty good, lean gains and hard work with a easier dieting style. So far a pretty good off season. Less than a month I will start my lean bulk.

    Finaflex G8 Review

    by Blockhead

    The year of 2010 brought us the hip hop club anthem from The Far East Movement G6 but in the dietary supplement world a new company rose out of the ashes like a Phoenix which happens to be their logo.

    Enter: Redefine Nutrition. Redefine made big waves in the nutritional supplement/sports nutrition industry with their FINAFLEX line. An innovative company looking to change the game and the way it’s played in this market offering new ideas in formulation of products and unique combination of compounds using what is proven to have effect on body composition and ridding itself of useless fillers and other junk that is used to make a product looked “stacked to the max”.

    Last week I was able to try a sample packet of their Rest/Recovery formula known as G8. Sleep aid formulas have been getting popular as of late. We’ve always heard that we grow and change from rest or when we sleep and the most savvy of serious trainers know that natural release of growth hormone is released during deep sleep. There is definitely something to be said about the benefits of quality sleep. Something so misunderstood and so abused. We live in a society that dubbed the phrase “Sleep? Overrated. I’ll sleep when I’m dead”. Lack of deep sleep accelerates the aging process and gradually works against our complex human bodies wrecking havoc in a long run and blunting real gains and change we work so hard to induce.

    I know what it’s like to lose sleep. Being a rotating shift worker who still hit the weights I often find myself at night tossing & turning trying or flipping my pillows over and over again. I’ve tried Tylenol PM and even Nyquil but both can make me feel groggy and achy the next morning. Then I tried G8.

    I knew based on some of the ingredients that I would have to try it on a day when I don’t have to be up at 6am for work so I picked “my Friday” and poured one packet (one serving) in a glass of water right around 11:00pm. It turned the water into a green murky color but to my surprise it was quite easy to drink. The Lemon Freeze tasted like juice with a slight hint of that medicine-like aftertaste. Tolerable. Like usual I laid in bed and posted on Muscleweek.com and did my round of creeping facebook and downloading music. By 11:30 my eyelids were heavy and sand filled my eyes. I knew it was time to log off and post another day.
    What I noticed 11hrs later…

    That’s right. I slept like a slumbering dragon for an uninterrupted 11 straight hours. Not once did I toss & turn or wake up to empty my childlike bladder. Here are the dynamics on how it works:

    Recovery/Sleep Inducing Matrix – It has L-Glutamine, L-Arginine and L-Dopa in it. L-Dopa is known to be a mood elevating compound that studies show has an effect on our serotonin levels or “feel good hormones”. Glutamine & Arginine I am guessing to support anti-catabolism while we sleep giving us a trickle of important amino acids in our bloodstreams. Also, it has phenibut in it which is actually a prescription drug in Europe used for sedation and promoting calmness and well-being. Very powerful and works much better than the active ingredient in Benedryl in my opinion.

    Mood Elevators: Besides the L-Dopa it also contains Tyrosine, L-Phenylalanine and 4 butanoic acid, 2 amino -3 propanoic acid. All chemistry jargon for other active ingredients that can help increase a positive feeling of well being, recovery and restoration of body functions impaired by lack of quality sleep such as sex drive and sensation.

    It has Vitamin C and Vitamin B6 in it which I am not sure why exactly. I’m surprised it doesn’t have Magnesium and Zinc in it giving it a ZMA feature.

    I woke up feeling as light as a feather and full of energy that can’t be obtained from some STIMULANT or favorite thermogenic. Nothing was aching and it didn’t take me time to “get going”. I wasn’t groggy or crabby like I usually am in the morning before I start my day with coffee and newspaper. I was Alert & Orientated and ready to take on the day. In other words. I felt young, ready, willing and able.

    If anything I would say that a full serving might be a bit too much. Most people work most days during the week and I am inclined to believe that a full serving may make you sleep through your alarm on your cell phone and miss work or be very late. The way I would advise to use this product would be on the days you have OFF the next day where you can afford to sleep in a bit but if it were to be used on a nightly basis I would recommend that a half serving or 3/4 serving be used to assess your personal tolerance. I also would suggest it be cycled and tapered off a little. In other words it should be used strategically and responsibly. It’s very effective and worth the price of admission.
