Huge shout out to finaflex for letting me try this product. I am a huge BCAA fan and usually just use plain BCAAs intraworkout so I am stoked to see what this cant do for me. I have been a follower of Finaflex for years now and they continue to amaze me with their products, reps, and customer service, top notch company for sure so I expect nothing less than the best from this log!
Stats: 5'9, 165
Training style: I start each workout with a heavy compound movement (bench,squat, deadlift, overhead press) then move into some speed work, and then hypertrophy work with dropsets. I train with very high volume which is another reason why I feel that this product will help me. Also I sometimes train fasted
Nutrition style: Kind of IF but kind of not lol......I shoot for a 12 hour fast then ill eat something small and hit the gym little after if gym time falls before taht 12 hour time frame i train fasted. Post workout ill have a protein sake and if it is a high or med carb day ill have some carbs as well ( I am carb cycling low, low, high,med, repeat) then usually another small meal before i get home at night where i will eat the rest of my calories ( i really like eating alot at once lol) up until about 1.5 weeks ago I was eating all my calories at once every night but i just dont see how that can be the best way to build muscle although what im doing now isnt too much better. for my low carb days i only get carbs from veggies and dairy and it ends up being around 130-140g carbs.Med days are usually 200-225g and high days can range from 350-450 depending on calories. Im tryin to keep my calories between 3600-4200, usually on the higher side of that (3800-4000), on off days i still do cardio and add whatever calories i burn onto 2400 and take in that amount.
Im shooting to gain as much lean mass as possible right now and hope will really help my recovery. I am still debating the best time to take it. I dont want to use it too quick so I will probably stick to just 1 heaping scoop intraworkout although there are plenty of times I can think of that I would want to use this, especially between meals. Like today for example when i forgot my pwo meal so i had to go 3 hours after just a protein shake before more food :-(
