    Another high volume session in the books it seems. Full body days are good every once in a while for me too. Can really get all the muscles feeling good and limber while getting the blood flowing around.

    Also very nice when you can't train often....if I can only train 2 times a week then I prefer to pair lots of muscle groups together.

    another great leg workout.....wasnt feeling great all morning but once i got ready to lit i felt great.....my legs had not felt 100% earlier in the day so i decided to focuz more on for and keeping tension on the muscle rather than going for more weight.

    4 sets leg ext 15-20 reps double drop on last set to pre exhaust the quads

    squat
    205x8
    225x8
    235x8
    245x8

    Glute bridge
    305x10
    315x10
    315x10
    315x10

    leg ext ss leg press machine 12-15 on ext 15-20 on press with double drop on last set

    pre exhausting and focus on on form really had my legs on fire, felt good to get a good pump going from squats

    hip abductor machine, 3 set seated , 3 sets leaning forward (hits the glutes lower, good stuff)

    glute kickback machine 4 sets with really strong contractions at the top

    seated leg curl 4 sets 10-12 drop on last set

    there is no doubt the BCCA+SAA helps my workouts esp when fasted....i was drinking regular BCAAs when i started but half way through started with the BCAA+SAA and i got a second wind of energy and any hunger issues i had were gone....this stuff is great! and tastes amazing!!!!

    Sad sad day I've noticed some increased recovery as well lately. I've used SAA's for a while but this combo from team Finaflex is the best I've gotten my hands on. Great review so far Kretz!

    thanks man, yea, this is some good stuff, i love the possible cortisol lowering effects of the SAA combined with the BCAA, if i had some extra cash id be all over this, but times are rough right now financially

    last serving today :-(

    BCAA + SAA Final Review

    Taste - 9/10 - A very smooth, unique apple flavor. With ice cold water this is an easy 10/10, crisp and refreshing to say the least.When it is warm i find a slight aftertaste, not necessarily bad but you can tell it was there type of thing. The flavor is unlikeanything i have ever tried, it like a mix of sweet apple and almost a light lemonade, but much more apple (dont be afraid haha) delicious!

    Mixability - 9.5/10 -Any time i used this product i woudl put 1-1.5 scoops in about 25 oz of water, shake maybe 5 times and it was completely dissolved. The only reason i did not give it a 10/10 is because at the very bottom at the very end it is a tiny bit gritty. Not anything big but not 100% so i have to be honest, but in all reality it probably should be a 10/10 considering some other products
    Value - 9/10 - it is competitively priced with other BCAA products per serving but you have to remember that this also has SAA added in so that makes it a winner. If i knew exactly how many BCAAs were in a serving i may give it a 10/10.

    Endurance - 9.5/10 - I just dont like giving a perfect score lol. There were some workouts where I would begin the workout with regular bcaas and then after i got through those start drinking the BCAA+SAA, it seemed that once i started drinking the BCAA + SAA i would get a second wind. Also when i would drink it from the start it seemed that i would recover faster between sets. Could be placebo but a definite difference was noted in regard to recovery between sets. It definitely helped me through my extremely high volume workouts. IT allowed me to get through them at a decent pace and still push decent weights.

    Recovery - did not notice much difference in regards to DOMS and recovery after workouts while using it, i was using it every day so maybe now that i am not using it i will notice some differences.

    Overall - 9.5/10- a truly unique product which is the biggest reason i loved this product. There are a lot of bcaa products out there but none like this. The added SAA can only help and i like the idea that they may help reduce cortisol especially since i train fasted. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking to gain an edge with their training endurance and recovery and i would recommend it even more to those of you that train fasted or after you have not eating for a while if muscle mass is your goal!!


    thanks again to finaflex for letting me use this amazing product i really enjoyed my time using it and even put on a couple of solid pounds and set some prs so i cannot complain at all..... u guys rock!!! keep up the great work
