Better value IMO, especially if you're looking at leucine content. The RecoverPro tastes better now than I thought it did with the 1 sample.
    Isn't Recoverpro 4g of luecine per serving? I know xtend is 3.75g per serving so if that's the case they are basicly the same except recoverpro has lower content (1g) of isoluecine and L-valine and xtend has the added l-glutamine and B6.

    Recoverpro is a great value though I agree. And the taste was decent also.I will probably pick a tub of it up eventually when my stash of xtend runs out, but I still have 3 tubs to go through

    True, I guess it's just the extra 35 servings for $10+ less that gets me... and the flavor is just as good. The extras in Xtend just don't excite me. But smoke 'em if you got 'em, no point in wasting it!

    AWESOME, back over 500lb DEADLIFTS! Back was kinda tweaking since last week, but I can't give up my DL day! I pulled the 455 without much problem, so decided it was time to venture back into the 500's. Felt good, locking out was a bit of effort, but doable. Now, my PR is 525 so I'll have to beat that!

    The rest of back day was ho-hum TBH. I didn't have as solid of a mind-muscle connection as I have had the last few back workouts, I was more focused on moving weight than feeling the pump. I read about a study in Flex or International Muscle Mag that focusing on moving weight allows you to lift heavier (~5-10% more IIRC) than focusing on contraction (which helps stimulate ~20-40% more muscle fibers IIRC). So, I guess it was a strength day instead of hypertrophy.

    It sounds like my 4 year old son wants to go out to lunch with daddy, and I've been wanting to hit an all-you-can-eat sushi place with the wife, so it might be a BINGE for me! That sounds like a great fast breaker, the difficulty will be estimating calories and keeping track of it all! Maybe I should bring a notepad, LOL!

    Xtend got me into amino acids, but now that I know better what to look for, RecoverPro is a better value. I've tried unflavored, but the marginal cost is so worth it in this case.

    500+ feels oh so right, but it makes me jealous of people like Tomahawk who easily pull 600+. It's these damn long limbs I tell ya! Still, gotta keep pushing, I want to rep 500+, that's my new goal!

    Maybe we are going to have to agree to disagree, but I have always found that longer limbs help in the Dead-Lift! Back in my hay-day, before I tore my Pec and I actually lifted heavy, I could Dead 600+ for reps, and I'm 6'2" with long limbs?

    But, also with that being said, what I have found that I LOVE... LOVE... LOVE is doing Dead-Lift/Rows as a combination exercise (with lighter weight of course). I dead-lift, then slight bend and row, repeat and I try and do sets of 10-15, because every since my injury, the only thing I still go heavy with is legs and that is always on machines so I know my back is very supported!!! Also why if I do the dead-lifts mentioned I do them first when my back is fresh, vs. doing them at the end when I risk hurting my lower back (after a warm-up of course).

    As far as your Son saying "NEVER" when you ask him when to give up! I completely agree 110%!!!

  14. Day 2: Macros

    Calories: 3431 (71cal below maintenance)

    368g protein
    221g carbs (48g fiber)
    121g fat

    43/26/31


    Didn't get to go to lunch, had to work through and didn't get to eat until 2:30PM. I was able to make up some calories with an evening Strawberry Vasolate shake and a Better Protein Bar with N2Mix. By the way, I don't understand why folks rave about Vasolate flavors, I thought it was pretty bad TBH. I'll take Myofusion over Vasolate and even UP2.0 Cinnabun, especially for the prices.

    I hate having to have a shake to make up calories, but I should have more time tomorrow. I guess that's one downside to LeanGains, if your window gets messed with it can limit your ability to meet your target calories. If you're cutting, that's not so bad. If you're trying to gain, it could be detrimental it seems.

    No worries about tomorrow though, I have 1lb of lean beef ready for lunch with my high fiber/protein tortillas!

    My lower back is hurting me though, it was bothering me for a little over a week now (started hurting one day sitting in my chair, odd). I know the DLs aggravated it, but still a nuissance. I guess I should ice it?

    Repping 600+? Damn, you're just STRONG! I'm lucky to hang in the 500's, and not even close to 600! I don't know if it's long limbs or not, but you're far better than I am at DLing!

    Interesting combo of DL and Rows, gotta be killer on lower back!

    So tomorrow is hamstring day, I'm going to lay off the Straight Leg DLs, but think I'll still do the Good Mornings to start things off. We'll see how my back feels then...

    Yes, 2 with my largest meals; fastbreak at noon and dinner at 6PM.

    Hunger has not been a real issue, so I may try breaking it into 4 one pill doses spread out more next week. I have been parched though, so I'm drinking lots. My typical 5L of water isn't enough. Interesting effect.

  19. I am late to this party but am in! I have AnaBeta ready for when I get home but have Body Mortar as my BCAA product. I made the error of thinking it was priced better than RecoverPro because it doesn't have the carb content listed in the ingredients. I might get RecoverPro when I get home so like to see some good reviews to cement my choice. Good luck on the AnaBeta run! Ben

    Thanks Ben, glad to have you here! Feel free to drop some wisdom while you peruse!

    Yes, the RecoverPro is FANTASTIC for the value IMO. I also like the Raspberry taste.

    They (AI Sports Nutrition) is going to have a 50% off Christmas in July sale 1-5 July and I am going to get more and also some Lemonade., and they'll have great deals on LCLT and DAA. I don't know if they ship international though.

    Thank you for the compliment, it makes me feel 'wisdomous' . I was going to buy the Swole stack a while ago but shipping was as much as the stack so I turned it down. For what it is worth on the limb length deadlift conversation it depends on the limbs. I did a workshop with Eric Cressey and he jokes about his short torso and long "gorilla arms" making it mechanically advantageous to deadlift as he only has to pull it about 6" high lol. I hit John Smeton up for some samples as I have never tried the AI products and he has just created a thread on it but I don't think they will ship, very few companies send anything to the UK.

    Machine Cable Isolateral 21's
    42.5 x 21
    45 x 21
    47.5 x 20

    52.5 x 21

    Machine Flys
    190 x 10
    210 x 8
    230 x 7


    Starting with the Good Mornings REALLY helped my back feel better. I kept it light, and form was strict. Good stretch in the hammys! Hamstrings were really getting sore on the Leg Curls. Chest was feeling good as well today on the presses, getting in more reps at higher weights. My incline bench is coming along nicely, actually almost able to lift more on that then flat bench for whatever reason, but I've almost always been that way.

    The AnaBeta hasn't seemed to affect hunger much at all yet, though I am much more thirsty after doses. However, while I'm fasting and haven't taken AnaBeta in a while, I am not parched like I am when I take it. All this is making me wonder whether the AP/DC in AnaBeta is staying active long enough to have an effect. Should I add a pill pre-workout? I think I'll wait until next week to try that, unless someone wants to drop some wisdominess words of advice?

    Not really, I started it to build my lower back strength & endurance and no longer do those heavy dead-lifts which were just begging for an injury. Remember I do them very light and for high reps, I start with 1 plate on each side... 135Lbs and get like 20-30reps, then I go up to 185Lbs for like 15-20 reps, then I go up to 225 for 10-15 reps, then back down to 185Lbs for like 10-15 reps and end it with 135Lbs for like 15+ reps, exhausted by this time. I don't do it every week, just every other week, I'll start my back routine with this!

    As far as Low Back (LB) pain is concerned, I think I have the same problem a great number of weight lifters have and this is both my personal and professional opinion as a Chiropractor... Tight Hamstrings are the #1 cause of Low Back pain in weight-lifters!

    Very interesting on the tight hamstrings. So me doing the Good Mornings today, where I could feel a good hammy stretch, probably helped my lower back. I do feel much better, so that probably has something to do with it. After the DLs, my hammys were definitely sore...

    Thanks, good info!

    Your right..tight hammies will cause low back pain. I'm a sprinter so I know all about some hammies

  29. damn milas, i really like vasolate-chocpb tastes fantastic. i just started anabeta yesterday, i am imporessed that endurance went up so quickly-just couldn't tire out....hope this continues. although i could live without the increased urinating. so far anabeta hasn't effected my appetite.

    i agree, gonna jump on some lemonade recoverpro!!!!
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  30. Milas, no invite buddy? I feel left out... Either way I'm here whether you like it or not!
