So SwolenOne sent me 2 boxes of X-Factor Advanced and I've been saving them for when I finished the Controlled Labs Motiv8 contest. Considering I took my final photos for that last week, now is the time to try XFA!
The anabolic potential for arachidonic acid is interesting, and I'm well aware of the correlation between AA and alzheimers. But, as I hear all the time in my lab "correlation is NOT causation." So, I have little qualms about using this stuff, though I will be curious to see if it causes any edema, which AA triggers as part of the immune inflammatory response.
I have started off with 4caps spread throughout the course of the day, as per the boxes recommendation. But typically, those suggestions can be somewhat low, so I'm considering upping the dose.
For those who have used AA/XF, what dose do you recommend?
Anyways, a little about me:
Weight: 242 this morning, ~10% BF though I think I'm holding a bit of water at the moment
Today marks the beginning of a lean bulk with alternate day fasting incorporated. Starting at 4000cals on lifting days, will adjust as needed.
I'm currently following a 4-day double split routine, with some 5/3/1 thrown in for good measure. It basically looks like: Squat/Accessory, Press/Arms, Dead/Accessory, Press/Arms. You'll get the hang of it as the log progresses, I'm sure.
Other Supplementation includes:
