    Finaflex keeps Mkretz in growth mode with BCAA+SAA!!


    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 BCAA+SAA 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 :-(

    thanks guys!!!


    took a preworkout protein shake today so i went the other way with my bcaa supplementation today....sued the regular ones in the beginning and then took the bcaa+saa later after the protein im sure was digested so i could reap the most benefits from the bcaa+saa.........1 heaping scoop on my full shaker bottle and was damn delicious once again......... going to a new gy now where for some reason teh weights seemed heavier but w.e i pulled 435 from the floor for DL which is a pr since th last tiem i did 435 was off of like 1.5 inch pads so cant complain.... also did quite teh heavy volume on deads.....just got into them i guess.....

    DL - 435 x 1 PR

    325x5
    325x5
    335x5
    345x5
    355x5
    365x3
    375x3
    385 cluster set 3 sets of 1 with about 15-20 seconds rest

    pendlay rows - my back was shot at this point, haven felt deads that much in my upper back like ever

    135x10
    135x10
    135x10
    145x8

    speed low box squat - double wrapped the bands so alot of tension at the top

    135 5 sets of 2 145 2 sets of 2 155 3 sets of 2

    t bar row 4 sets 10-12 perfect squeezes, really had a good mind muscle connection going here double drop on last set btw

    1 arm db row 4 sets 10-12 again good connection worked up to 80 for 8 good reps with a few cheated

    3 sets 10-12 hamer strenth pulldown

    4 sets assisted pull ups

    CG pulldown 3 sets

    3 sets hammer strength rows- by back is shot, more shot than i can remember, i really pushed the deads and hope to see some nice results from it :-)

    Great looking workout! The taste is really spot on from the first reports so far. On the weight feeling heavier. Some gyms actually have lighter weights to increase people egos. True story.

    Gah! Look at the volume here! The BCAA+SAA will really help with that fasted training. Those boulder shoulders are right around the corner at that rate

    sorry for the lack of updates.....school is just about over had some stuff to take care of.........

    today was a doozy - i was weaker for whatever reason, could be the fact that i had been riding my bike around town before, and was fasted which i was not last week for legs, i didnt try to push the weight too much, instead i made sure my form was absolutely perfect and i think i did a great job of that so with that added in im pretty happy with the numbers.......I have been averaging 2 scoops a day which is yummy but means its gonna run out quicker unfortunately lol

    Squat - got lower than usual i believe and didnt stick my ass out at the bottom and lean forward like i do sumtimes (means good form lol)

    Speed DL

    Leg destruction! Stopping at the bottom in hack squats is indeed different. Really helps with explosivness though.

    soooo my bench was down today for some reason, and yest was an off day....i have a pretty good idea though, i rode my bike around 20 miles and also cut my grandparents HUGE lawn with a push mower, like 2.5 hours of straight cuttin!....thought i took in a enough cals but maybe not, my tris and chest were a little tight maybe form the riding and mowing.....anyways

    last week i did 225 easy so i thought id go for 235...no go

    pause bench

    165x5x5 170x5 125x15

    clean - these felt good today even with all the riding
    155x2x8 160x2x1 165x2x1

    incline db pres - set sum prs here....weird right lol.....longer rests might be why (seen my buddy so was talking with him even though i hate talking in the gym, i knew he'd spot me haha)

    55x10
    55x10
    60x8
    65x8 pr + 2
    70x6 pr + 2

    Barbell Decline - short rests

    145x12
    145x9
    125x15
    125x12

    bw dips - real slow negative, did it on an assisted machine so when i failed i did a "drop set" on the last 2 sets - 4 sets total

    btw i had a pre wo meal which i usually dont, if anything its usually just a protein shake so i didnt start sippin the BCAAs till about now....funny enough, felt alot better prolly 30 min afte ri started taking them,placebo? i dunno but i liked it

    reverse grip smith bench- shot rests 115 3 sets 10-12

    bent over cable fly - fst 7

    then db pullovers 55lb 10-12

    skull crushers - way weaker on these,i think this supports my tired triceps hypothesis

    50 lb 4 sets 10-15 drop on last set plus presses and CG pushups on knees to failure

    standing db overhead - alot harder than seated - 45lb 10-15 drop on last 2 sets

    1 arm rev grip pushdown 3 sets 10-12 with forced reps on last set


    lying with handles around ankles low ab crunches (laying on floor) - i love these just hard to get a cable station sumtimes 5 sets 10-15 drop on last set

    decline bench crunches,strict with squezes, 5 sets short rests 10-15 reps
