    I'm the same way sometimes I workout fasted and sometimes I don't but never noticed a dip in performance barring nutrition is on point the remained of the day or day leading up to fasted workout.

    I am definitly not one of those people. I go with 40+c pre and If I go under 200c daily my performance drops dramatically.

    I've done carb cycling and its not for me at all. Mood flux n weakness at the gym. I've also ran days with very little fuel as a Marine and know that you do get used to it eventually, even to the point where you're not hungry at all and begin to eat even less while maintaining the same high level of physical activity. Carbs are my best friend and fuel me for weights though. I simply do not perform well without them preworkout. And solid carbs at that.

    I remember reading a study on fasted workouts releasing more testosterone and growth hormone during and after the exercise is completed. Then again I'm sure there's a study contradicting that one as well. Studies...

    By the by, muscle soreness has decreased dramatically. I've had no DOMS since my leg workout on Saturday.

    I prefer solids over liquids. If I'm in a bind Ill mix dextrose powder in my preworkout which does help when in a clutch, but I can still do more with solid carbs.

    I am sure that there is many benefits, but it may be some people don't get the same effect. For me I know it is the case cuz I can really feel added power and strength in my fasted workouts. I have a very unevolved system. The reason our bodies adapted this way is that we had to go long periods without eating way back when. We needed vast amounts of energy and agression to go out as slay that large beast we needed to gorge on. Some people are less efficient this way so IF is not for them. Ectos generally need to eat every few hours where I could get by with once a day and still perform at top form.

    Good example, we're all so different.

    Shoulder workout has really improved. My form has gotten much better allowing me to hit target muscles much better than last week, even if weights didn't increase dramatically. Side raises and rear raises especially are much stronger.

    Pretty impressive how much would you have normally gained naturally at this many calories?

    Any sides?

    At two weeks in, without a PH and at the same caloric surplus, I would probably have gained a similar amount of weight. Probably 7-10 lbs. That said, I would not have gained the stellar increases in strength or LBM. That's the big difference here, LBM. My muscles are much fuller and dense. And that's pretty awesome in and of itself. Most PHs leave you with wet gains, a lot of water weight and bloat. This one is dry and solid, much better. If I can gain another 10 lbs before the end of cycle than we'll know for sure how much mass this Shiz is capable of.

    So far no significant sides. The last couple days I've noticed being less horny by frequency, meaning I'm usually horny all day whereas lately I've been horny only at certain times of the day. But this has not had a negative effect on efficiency or quality of sex with my wife. No signs of estrogen conversion. No lethargy.

    That's a whole lot of weight fast. I'm surprised. Keep up the good work. Sounds like another great finaflex product.

    Didn't mean anything negative by my comment. Just a statement for viewers to understand that this PH ain't no joke. And the fact all of us loggers are experiencing great results with this product solidifies the fact that it is exceptional. I'm glad we're all enjoying this ride.

    I wonder if this is similar to 1-Andro by AMS...

    Either way OP, what have you noticed from this cycle? A good synopsis would be good... I'll catch up on the thread later...

    Lift the fcking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Same active ingredient, different delivery method (oral vs sublingual). Finaflex version has more active in it.
