FINAFLEX 550-XD THE RESURRECTION OF TURNING GREEN (Sponsored LOG)

I guess I was miss informed about G8 I thought is another in the long line of pre-work products. I've been using Vita Test for sleep and recovery it works really well.
I would love to try Epi-v but as I understand it converts to DHT. I'm reluctant to mess around with DHT. I can affect you hair line as well as your prostate.

Never had an issue with sides from the last Epi-V run. Used PCT Black during the entire run. I was a bit shut down at the end, but bounced right back. I could go on for days on how awesome Epi-V is...but I'll spare you guys lol. Just hands down an amazing supplement. Bridging off this 550-XD cycle will be damn near epic. Single digits NO PROBLEM!

Here is Dinoiii's response to my question about the role of DHT and the prostate.
"DHT has been wrongfully accused of being the genesis of all things, prostate and hair related, gone wrong.
I am going to simplify things (hopefully not over-simplify)...
Many things are required for upregulation of DHT receptors - perhaps most important in the aformentioned pathologies is the combined product of IGF-1 and Estradiol (E2) at the level of prostatic and hair follicular membranes. Low levels of IGF-1 or E2, low DHT receptor concentration, little effect.
Feed the system DHT (either exogenously or through the amplification pathway), you will get downregulation of said receptors. Come at it from the opposite direction and, like virtually everything else in endocrinology and metabolism, and you get a sort-of negative feedback (the same thing happens with androgens, though the theories have been heatedly contested).
What we do know is that emphasis has since shifted in prostate/follicular therapeutics with greater success with the use of Aromatase Inhibitors (Letrozole) than 5-Alpha Reductase Inhibitors (Fina, Saw Palmetto). Both items will help, however, attacking estrogen is continually more effective or more complete than with blockade of DHT."

Couldn't agree more DW. No fun burping up your pre-workout while you are trying to really push through a set. The worst culprit for me has been N.O. Explode...Both carbonated and heavy as hell. Ive come close to throwing up as a result of using this pre-workout, and the burps are damn near crazy.

550-XD at 0730 and again at 1900 hrs. Awesome workout today and the addition of G8 to the current protocol is amazing. I really felt the effects of the G8 with the elevated mood. Nutrition sucked today, but hopefully tomorrow will be more scheduled.
Workout 3 Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight Reps Weight DB Shoulder Press 8 40lbs 8 40lbs 8 35lbs 8 25lbs DB Pull Over 8 55lbs 8 55lbs 8 45lbs 8 35lbs Smith Incline Press 8 165lbs 8 165lbs 8 115lbs 8 65lbs Reverse Grip Bench 8 110lbs 8 110lbs 8 90lbs 8 70lbs Hex Bar RDL 8 185lbs 8 185lbs 8 165lbs 8 115lbs
I hit 4.2 miles this a.m. at 10 minute miles around 0630hrs. Then the weights an hour later. I missed leg extensions becaue I had to be home for a furniture delivery.
Today was not a good day for nutrition. I had a lot going on today with the house then traveling to my brothers 3 hrs away. Didnt really eat until late. Hit this awesome mexican joint and basically just carbed out.

G8 has a big effect on mood for me as well, I took it last night and will take some ignite before my workout to go along with my kick ass mood then off the gym to destroy shyte..

I've used G8 the past 3 days. I decided to try a whole scoop because I knew I would sleep late today (woke up at 1000hrs). I don't know If it is because I slept much later or because I had a huge carb load last night or what variable set this off, but I feel so lethargic right now. This happened last time I took G8 and usually it wears off and I left with the best elevated mood achievable. I will report back and let you all know how the day progresses.
Oh and while I'm typing this my family is making fn egg sandwiches on English muffins with bacon and cheese drinking bloody mary's. I hate watching this Sh!t, but I will power through especially because I feel guilty as hell about my nutrition last night.

Not much to report on today. Another day with the family. Tomorrow is the beginning of no stops and I can't wait. I know there's no excuse, but it's hard to be perfect when everybody around you has now worries. Progress pics will be up tomorrow. I'll let you guys be the judge on how well I'm coming along.

Day 13 (yesterday)
Last day with the family. Today begins the start of no roadblocks. I know I have made progress however I may give myself a day or two before posting pics just to rid myself of some of the water I am holding onto. I'm feeling very puffy right now from the less than optimum food choices I had made over the weekend. Oh...I didn't eat the bacon, that was what the family was eating while I was still fasting.

My question is why 4 capsules daily? I see on the bottle 1 morning and 1 night. If I do pick up a bottle of it should I do 4 caps vs the bottle directions?
