Thanks FELLOW MALES, borobulker and JKP, words of approval are always welcome, and constructive criticism even more so

However, you need to ensure your body can handle at least 45 minutes (in my opinion - you may wish to check with one of the reps) between dosage and carb consumption without going hypo.

a bit late with the updates...
9AM (yeah, ok, shush everyone, I know I was a lazy a$$ to get out of bed but it was the weekend so give me a break )
Started off with 2Recreate and without PwFULL, had a FIRM intention to do a VERY SHORT HIIT session, but boy I was WRONG …within 10min of dosing I was switched on HIT instead: High Intensity, Intervals. Sprinted for 25 min, felt like I could have gone for longer but wanted to spare my knees ‘cause they are not used to 3 HIIT running sessions/week (and this was the third one).
Afternoon was supposed to be used for rest but I promised to teach a friend how to do deadlifts .
Hit the gym at 3pm but my friend wasn’t there so I though, I should play with weights a bit just for fun (nothing to hard, this is MEANT TO BE A REST DAY, DAMN IT!!!). WRONG AGAIN !
I was still running HIGH from the morning dose and so before I knew it I was doing a gruelling superset : pyramid cable bicep curl + pyramid cable tricep pulldown (didn’t go for deads ‘cause I’ve already done them this week, see day 2). What makes this gruelling is the PYRAMID system, anyone who has tried it before knows what I’m talking about .
Usually I do only one superset on these and then take 5 min to recover before I’m able to hold a pen and take notes, haha !! Well, after doing the first pyramid superset I thought: one is like none, so I went on and did another! I even bumped the weights up cause I felt my arms could take some further damage .
There was still no sign of my friend and at this point I thought: hope he doesn’t come at all cause I want to keep going
My wish was granted, total time in the gym 1hr. I popped 1Recreate/1PwFULL in the middle of the workout and when it was over, I still had some steam left in me so I went for a 20min spin on my bike. Felt great, pumped and NOT EXHAUSTED AT ALL!

Rest day .
Slept only 5hrs after a night out (no drinking, alcohol and me agree NOT), woke up mildly cranky, took 1 Recreate ONLY and went for a 20min ride to “organize my thoughts for the day”.
I was pleasantly surprised from a single dose of Recreate, it kicked in just right (I didn’t feel like I was running on illegal substances ), I didn’t have the urge to do ANY form of HIT, but I didn’t have the urge to call it quits and crawl back into bed either. Took 1 more Recreate in the afternoon. Mood improved, I was VERY HAPPY and RELAXED….prior this stack, me + 5 hrs of sleep =

"Root (verb and noun) : synonym for f*ck in nearly all its senses: "I feel rooted"; "this washing machine is rooted"; "(s)he's a good root". A very useful word in fairly polite company. "

Agree, protein is important however, thus far I've been following a keto-like diet with very little carbs. My protein intake was (and still is) around 2g per pound of muscle if not more (more=overkill). I also tended to go "stupid" on fats. While this type of dieting wasn't bad for my body type, I found myself stuck in a rut. Workout intensity went down and increasing carbs seemed to help in that respect...not without the price of accumulating too much "dirt" though.
I started a carb-feeding cycle about a month ago and persisted despite getting frustrated over the acquired soft-look. For the last week, due to the addition of AP, I increased carbs even more. Workouts have been great so far and the soft-look is not getting any worse If anything, it is improving, I can actually notice some definition in my upper thighs for a change
Also, there are no bloating or sleepiness-issues following a carb meal. This was not a case before a stack. Give me some porridge in the morning and an hour later I'm ready to join the "dead"

So far, on weight training days (afternoon workouts) I’ve experimented with:
1Recreate /2PwFULL afternoon (prior workout)
And the winner is ….
RECREATE LITERALLY RECREATES YOU. I’m not an “early morning” person and I’ll find any possible excuse to avoid a scheduled morning HIIT cardio (the weather is too hot, the weather is too cold, back is stiff …bull$hit-it is stiff every morning, ...I’m not an early morning person ).
With Recreate, I crave HIIT as badly as ketogenics crave their weekend carb-refeeds izza::donut::burg:
* Morning doses (~8:30AM)-always kick in faster, within 10min (increased -alertness, sweating, positive aggression, focus, an overwhelming rush of energy and happiness).Importantly, when dosing Recreate in 2/1 (morning/afternoon) scheme, appetite suppression is significant throughout the day as opposed to 1/2 (morning/afternoon) – not much at all
The effects are VERY INTENSE AND LONG LASTING (especially with a double dose of Recreate, come 2PM and the heat is still on!)
* Afternoon doses (~5PM)-EVEN WITH 2 Recreate the effect is not as intense as when the same dose is taken in the morning, also, takes ~20min to kick in
CONCLUSION: RECREATE SEEMS TO WORK BEST ON EMPTY STOMACH
To elaborate this further: afternoon dose is taken 3hrs after lunch and 1hr after a small protein shake (gastric emptying not 100% completed); morning dose is taken after >8hr overnight fast

Glad to see you've got the dosing down!
I also take in more protein than the norm: >500g/day on workout days! (Roughly 3x my bw!)
And I have to know... What does kangaroo taste like? (Please don't say chicken! LOL!)

And carbs don't make you look soft. Yes, for every gram of carbs you store 3g of water (intracellular, though), but it would make you appear HARDER, if anything.
Anyways, I won't argue this point. Everyone's body works differently in some respects, and if you feel that this is your best way, then by all means, do it.
Seems you need to decide whether you want to be a MTBer or a figure competitor, since the training required for each is at OPPOSITE ends of the extreme.

HAHA, awesome, that makes me feel less ; besides, judging from your avatar, it seems to be working QUITE wellI also take in more protein than the norm: >500g/day on workout days! (Roughly 3x my bw!)
HELL NO, the taste is rather unique and from speaking with other people, it is either a hit or a miss, you'll either love it or you'll hate it. It has a very intense smell that some people dislike. I love it though (the taste, smell doesn't bother me much and once the meat is cooked, it is not noticeable), I have never gone back to beef since I've started eating 'roo.And I have to know... What does kangaroo taste like? (Please don't say chicken! LOL!)
Jakellpet's log has some tips on how to cook it.

However, since I started weight training, I cut down on mountainbiking, because building muscle is hard enough as it is. Now-days, I barely do 1 ride every 1-2 weeks and it is never over 2hrs. I do a couple of endurance events per year (this year I did two 8hr races and a 60km race), but I do no specific training for them (other than a MASSIVE carb refead )
Interestingly, even without cycling-specific training, this year had been the best in terms of racing placements (think it is because weight-training unleashed toughness that I never thought I had in me, I see mountainbiking as a painless fun now, as opposed to weight training-painful fun ). I came 1st and 2nd in the 8hr events and 2nd in the 60km race. During my last 8hr event I scoffed down 30 dried bananas…and it was a winner
Right again, I've been racing for 5 years, time to try something different, if anything I may use an 8hr event as a pre-contest cut, haha !Seems you need to decide whether you want to be a MTBer or a figure competitor, since the training required for each is at OPPOSITE ends of the extreme.

Woken up by the lawn mower, VERY ANGRY !!!
It took a BIT of willpower to restrain myself from out at my neighbour to “get f.cked” .
Took 2 Recreate and cheered up. Still, by mid afternoon, premature awakening took its toll and I was as motivated to hit the gym as I was to get out of bed at 6AM Nevertheless, I forced myself to go, if nothing else than out of curiosity to see whether 1Recreate/1PwFULL would bring the alpha-FEMALE attitude back. In all honesty, I wasn’t expecting much…
Started my workout with some core-warmup and then straight to deads (what better way to put the supps to test )
A side note: Like I said, my PR on deads is 165lb 6 reps, however, that was more than 3 months ago, since then I’ve regressed quite a bit. Of late, at 148.5lb I’m already in serious trouble and at 154 I’m REALLY PUSHING THE LIMITS.
The numbers speak for themselves:
DEAD workout :
PRIOR TO Recreate/PwFULL/AP
set 1. 132lb: 8 reps
set 1. 132lb: 8
set 2. 143lb: 6
set 2. 148lb: 6 well that was EASY !!!
set 3. 154lb: 5
set 3. 159.5lb: 5 that was worth the effort, great form*
set 4. 165lb: 1 - horrible form, not even under a threat of death could I have squeezed another rep
set 4. 165lb dropset 154lb: 4,3 - great form*
SET 5!!!!! 165lb dropset 154lb dropset 143lb: 3,3,4 - great form*
* actually had someone watching me for the sake of getting an unbiased opinion
