    not a fan of such a plan

    I got 3 bottles of 550-xd ready to go!
    nice supply - way to do it righteous
    Have to wait to get snipped before I hit hard in 3 weeks.
    is that a typo?
    Gonna run for six weeks at 4 caps a day with PCT Black with DAA for post cycle. Also bought Taurine for back pumps and gonna dose that at 5g with my pre-workout drink (Speedx3 and Pumpx3 by Lecheek).
    your chances of having back pumps on this product are pretty low..

    Haha, no, not a typo. I'm getting snipped next Friday; got all the kids I need.

  3. Ok Gents, I started my 550-xd cycle 13 days ago and have not noticed anything yet except small headaches and more aggression/agitation. When should I expect to start noticing changes on my body? I'm running at 4 caps a day(2 morning, 2 evening).

    Also, anything I can do for the headaches?

    I wanted to start a log but I got too much stuff going on and I know I wouldn't be able to commit to it.

  4. varies on results, but most start seeing around 3 weeks/4th week in - dosing looks good
    headaches should not be an issue, is not that kind of compound
    I am not a medical practitioner, so cannot advise you here but to say make sure you have increased water intake and are drinking plenty

  5. I would not have expected headaches from this but yes try increasing water intake and if you still have some problems you could try some Hawthorne Berry to be safe.

  6. If you go the Hawthorne berry route, preloading it is always the best idea. Although used to lower BP, it can also spike BP prior to lowering it. This scares some people out of cycles because they take it too late, see the spike, and think it's not helping. Preload HB 1wk prior. Epi-v shouldn't mess with your BP though, not to that extent.

    I didn't know that but I always preload it with my other support supps so would not have noticed.

  8. I am with Snags on this one, you shouldn't be experiencing headaches from this product, it is not going to have that much effect on your BP unless your BP was already in question. Now dehydration from lower estrogen and not enough water intake, yeah that could cause some headaches. However much water you are drinking increase it to 1-1.5 gallons a day and I bet you will be good as gold.

  9. Ok thanks guys. Also, I'm running 550-xd and not the Epi. Someone recommended that I drop some more pounds before doing an Epi run.

    I agree with that Epi-v does the most good when you are at your leanest. Remember it will help you look harder so peak is where you want to use it.

  11. Ok gents. My first Finaflex 550-XD cycle is finished as if today. Unfortunately, I must say that I'm disappointed in the overall results. I thought that I would get somewhat of a recomp but I did not. While I did gain some muscle size, it's nothing to brag about and not really what I was after.

    I would not recommend this product to anyone because it didn't really seem to do, anything. I was following Wendlers 5/3/1 BBB but again I did not notice any significant or extraordinary gains.

    Thanks for all of your help.

    I would almost guarantee you: the problem lies not in the product itself, but rather in your approach nutrition-wise (choices of food, overall macro structure, maybe even total cals ingested)

    these products will NOT overcome a poor diet, unless you are a very specific metabolism that will allow this

    no offense to you, but that is by far the most overwhelming issue and cause, with the guys who say anything remotely close to what you are saying here -- and this feedback/cause is really relatively rare, since most ppl who run a hormonal product/stack, are assumed to and in fact do have dietary/nutritional understanding on point, before engaging in steroidal course

    in any event, we appreciate you taking the time to offer your feedback and opinion, take care
