FINAFLEX 550-XD THE RESURRECTION OF TURNING GREEN (Sponsored LOG)
RISE FROM THE ASHES...WITNESS THE REBIRTH OF GREEN...
Here we go! FINAFLEX 550 XD IS BACK! I will be running THREE BOTTLES of 550 XD BLACK. This will be a 45 day blitz to the best physique possible before summer (followed by PCT). This is a FINAFLEX SPONSORED thread. A huge thanks to ScottyDoc and Dream Weaver for being awesome Finaflex Reps, and of course thanks to the gentlemen and women at Finaflex who make this possible! I will LOG nutrition, supplement timing, training, and bi-weekly progress pictures so please stick around and throw me your comments and criticism (constructive please).
Supplementation is as follows:
Finaflex 550 XD Black- 4 capsules daily (2 upon waking and 2 with post-workout meal)
Finaflex Revolution PCT Black- 1 capsule (before bed)
AI Sports Nutrition RecoverPro- 4 scoops (sipped throughout the day mixed into 1 gallon of H2O)
MGN Multi-Vitamin His- 3 capsules (upon waking)
MGN American ISO Whey Protein- As Needed for optimum Macro-Nutrient Ratios
I will be following the Lean Gains Protocol. My calories will fall between 1500-1800 on “burn days” and 2200-2500 on “lift days” I will be aiming for 50% protein/25% carbs/25% fat on “burn days” and 50% protein/30% carbs/20% fat on “lift days” I am very carb sensitive, and as a result will appear puffy from excessive consumption. Fast break will be at 1300hrs and the feeding window will close at 2100hrs.
I am currently around 19.6% body fat according to the Accu-Measure 3000 caliper. My weight is currently 215lbs. My aim is a body recomp protocol, shredding as much body fat as possible while keeping or gaining lean mass. I recently moved, and had a massive overhaul to take on with the new house. Unfortunately my training and nutrition suffered as a consequence. I am bound and determined to now overhaul myself with this awesome supplement and of course hard work!
I will be using “MrKleen’s Iron Warrior/Kleen Machine” Protocol which involves form failure and strip set failure M/W/F with cardio and abs TUE/THUR/SAT.

The infamous FINAFLEX 550-XD™ makes its triumphant return to the marketplace! Featuring the most effective legal (under DSHEA*) bodybuilding ingredient ever introduced to the supplement world, 550-XD™has again secured its place as the most pivotal advancement in lean muscle acquisition ever introduced...PERIOD. 550-XD™is built with a potent legal bodybuilding ingredient that produces RESULTS, delivering rock hard lean muscle while managing estrogen levels, detoxifying liver, and supporting joint function.*
The new 550-XD™is built with a potent 2 step precursor to 19norTestosterone, better known in the bodybuilding world as Nandrolone or "Deca". FINAFLEXchemists worked for over 9 months to increase the stability, purity, and bioavailability of the ingredient, creating a novel enanthate version of the compound that is unmatched in its effectiveness and strength. The benefits of 3b-enanthoxy-19-nor-androst-4-ene-17-one include:
Lean Muscle Growth
Minimal Estrogen Conversion
Joint Function Support
Reduced DHT Side Effects (zits, prostate issues, hair loss)
550-XD™will augment any diet and training program effectively, allowing the body to grow and recover more efficiently. The novel compound in 550-XD™promotes lean muscle growth while reducing estrogen in the body!
By combining 550-XD™with two anabolic amplifiers, Narinigin and Bergamottin, the active ingredient in 550-XD™becomes highly concentrated in the bloodstream allowing for greater absorption and delivery to the body.
Built with ARIMISTANE™, a revolutionary aromatase inhibitor introduced by FINAFLEX, 550-XD™reduces the aromatase enzyme in the body, promoting an optimal anabolic environment ideal for lean muscle growth. ARIMISTANE™ works to eliminate water retention, further promoting lean muscle striations and hardness.
The combination of Vitamin C, N-acetyl-l-cystine, and Milk Thistle helps protect the body from toxins. These three ingredients work synergistically to detoxify the liver and promote liver health.
This is where I was before ISH hit the fan...using the same approach!
PCT is POST CYCLE THERAPY. I will use FINAFLEX PCT BLACK and FINAFLEX PURE TEST to regulate.

Took my first dose of 550-XD at 0645hrs along with 3 multi-v caps. I haven't used any supplements of this caliber in a good while, and I could definitely feel some unwanted effects...at least effects that have not been normal over the past few months or so. I definitely felt cranky as all get out and by the time my last class rolled around I had zero tolerance for BS from my fourth block turds...I mean students. I sipped on my gallon of H2O/RecoverPro throughout the day, and hit my workout at about 1540. Training went well...I am just really getting back into the game here and assessing my strength. I took dose two of 550-XD around 1700 hrs along with my largest meal of the day. I will take one cap of PCT Black before bed. All said I am glad to be back in the game and already I feel confident that this LOG will be a great success.

I agree your calorie count does seem a little low. But if you are looking to cut weight it might be ok. All depends also how active you are during the day and your cardio plan.
04-03-2012, 01:12 AM
Best of luck and I will be following this. Today was the 1st day of week 3 for me on 550. Slowly getting strength gains but not noticing any size gains. Seems I am cutting a very small % of body fat though.
I increased my pills to 5 a day for this week as I was doing 4 for the 1st two weeks. Can't wait to follow you on the journey

Wow this took off in a hurry... the first pics are your before's, hey you didn't drift that much....

Ok ladies and gentlemen, Just had a conference with DreamWeaver about my calories as there has been some controversy on my numbers. He suggests that we bump build days up to a respectable 3,000 calories and burn days to around 2,000 calories. I will keep macro-nutrirnts the same. Just know that this scares the hell out of me, but lets see how it works. With my Meso/Endo body type I will have potential for large gains in mass lets hope I can keep it lean!
Since we're making updates here...I slept like crap last night (not from supplementation) my HVAC unit wont produce cold air so my house is about 80 degrees...not ideal for sleeping. On the other hand I feel really good today no crankiness perhaps yesterday was just an off day. Sorness is minimal from yesterdays lift (so far) I will hit some moderate paced elliptical today and some abs.

Totally SUB'd and digging the beard!
BTW, you look incredible for 19.6% BF, I think you might truly be leaner than that, but either way, I'm totally in for the transformation that we both know you can do, it's Game Time Baby!!!

550-XD and 3 Multi-Vs at 0645. I sipped on 4 scoops of RecoverPro mixed into 1 gallon of H2O. My thirst is way up today Im currently into my second gallon of H2O. I hit up 30 minutes of cardio, 10 minutes walking at 3.5mph then 10 minutes jogging at 4.5mph followed by another 10 minutes walking at 3.5mph. I also hit abs as well. I will get 1 cap of PCT Black before bed
DB Side Bends 3x15 @ 30lbs
Serratus Dips 3x15 @ body weight
Inverted Crunch 3x15 @ body weight
Cat Vomit Crunch 3x5 @ 5 second holds
I feel really good today. My energy is up and already, and Im seeing my vascularity come back (my diet and training is really helping with letting go of some water weight). Also my past two training sessions I have been sweating like a banshee!
If you didn't see in previous posts, I have brought up the calories...3,000 on builds, and 2,000 on burns. We shall see how it works out hopefully I make lean gains and don't bloat up.
