    One of the first to get STIMUL8ED!!!


    Name:  finaflex.jpg
Views: 148
Size:  32.9 KBGot my CLassified container toay of finaflex's new pre w/o, stimul8!

    only thing on the bottle is the flavor : - Apple blast and the directions which are to take one heaping scoop in 8-12 oz. of water 15 min prior to workout!

    I have loved every finaflex product i have ever tried and expect nothing less with this one

    Also, i am very stim tolerant so i am interested to see if this gives me a nice kick.

    U can bet I will be giving a detailed and most importantly, honest review, hope to have some people provide some feedback in here!

    dont worry, shook it before i took it....upon opening it smelled wonderful haha so i had to try it on my finger, it was awsome, like an old school candyapple popsicle..............

    unfortunately i cannot give a 100% accurrate reiew on the first dose because teh shaker i put it in had about .5 scoop of jacked micro in it from the day before that i didnt finish and i didnt want to waste it. It was not much and i know how that effects me so i will still review the workout.

    I mixed it with a total of about 16 - 20 oz of water, a little watered down but anyone knows me i sip on me preworkout throughout my workouts since they are pretty long at times.

    focus and energy were off the chart to start. I did back/hams and started off with heavy deadlifts and i wasn't like going crazy just a focused, calm, rip it up type of attitude, no rushing around like i do sometimes. felt great.

    taste was good, it was mixed with diluted fruit punch jacked micro so i will give a better review of taste next time.

    mixibility was great, couple shakes and it was gone, and nothing left on the bottom even at the end of the workout

    smooth clean energy, did not get crazy stimmed out like i as expecting, but again, i am pretty tolerant and sip it, also id like to note that i didnt finish it either so thats a good sign.

    Day 2 on stimul8 today...... for whatever reasoni was pretty unmotivated going into the gym today but i still went. Decided I needed the extra kick so did almost 2 scoops in probably around 20 oz water!! Started to feel it in about 15 minutes and continued sipping on it. Once again mixability was perfect. Taste was watered down but very good,again, the more concentrated the more it tastes like an old school candy apple sucker. If anyone has tried the apple flavor of the BCAA +SAA it is more of a candy apple flavor compared to that. really good stuff!

    I think when everyone hears the name stimul8 they think stims but what im getting is a crazy focus from this which i love!!! once i ot into my workout iw as ready to go even with how little i felt like bein there to start, ended up being a great workout and without stimul8 i highly doubt it wouldve been as intense. also let it be known that i did not finish all of the 2 scoops so its gotta be pretty strong.

    legs today, normally take 1 scoop of whatever pre im using plus 1 scoop of craze, today just 1 scoop on stimul8! spent alot of time riding my bike around since it was nice out before the workout, had some places to go but just used my bike. Felt really good going into the gym.....this was my frist time taking stimul8 with food in my stomach. Started sipping before my warm up then continued sipping while doing a 10 min warm up on the eliptical, started to kick in already during the warm up.......felt really good.....again, focus is better than i expected which i love.

    Some thing really weird did happen today however...... i was working up to a pretty heavy weight in front squat and when i would hold my breath to push on the way up i literally was super close to passing out 2 times so decided to stop. It was like the pressure was too much, but i wasnt even doing max weight, it was really scary, like my eyes were open but everything went white im really suprised i didnt pass out.

    Because of this i was reluctant to go really heavy with front squats and squat so i really just went as hard as i could without a crazy amount of pressure in my head.

    Front squat
    145x8
    155x8
    165x8
    165x8
    165x8
    115x as many
    115x as many

    Squat
    185x10
    185x10
    195x10
    205x8

    Speed DL
    245x2x10

    Leg Press
    6 plates 10-15
    6 plates 10-15
    6 plates 10-15
    6 plates 10-15 drop one plate at a time to 1 plate

    hack squat
    140x10-12
    140x10-12
    140x10-12
    140x10-12 drop on last set.................this really started to hurt my knee right above the knee cap the last 2 sets, not cool

    a little note on the day as a whole, body just did not feel 100% u know what i mean, like i was there, but the intensity that i usually bring was lacking, kinda sux but o well, gave it what i had, and my hammys are pretty tight right now

    bulgarian split squats
    4 sets 8-10 then drop weight to 15 reps

    1 leg leg ext
    4 sets 10-12 double drop on last set with forced reps on each set - these really had a good pump goin

    glute bridge - no pad so used alot less weight but did constant tension reps
    normally do 315-335

    today did 225 5 sets of 10-15

    glute ham raise off of a lat pull down station - these are awsome!!!!

    5 sets 10-12

    lying leg curls
    3 sets 10-15 drop on last set

    1 leg kettleell RDL
    4 sets of 10

    wheel of death ss russian twist/mason twist with 25lb plate for 50 reps and then 50 reps with no weight - 4 sets

    hmm could be many different issues here - from lack of hydration to blood sugar/glucose levels being off

    Hmm, 1scoop Stumul8 and 1scoop Craze? Two very strong stim PWOs for a session. I'm thinking advice would be to just stick to Stimul8. Did you check your BP?

    yes - please, when performing the 10-day beta testing here, do not use other stim products so to not skew feedback for us

    once this hits production/retail, it would continue to be my advice to not stack this product with other stimulant components, outside of perhaps the morning cup o' joe that seems to be an American pastime..

    My bad on this, just wanted to make sure of your health brother. Did you check your BP? Curious as to why you almost passed out.

    Not to be a turd but you are not supposed to hold your breath like that when lifting. You should be able to keep you belly full of air so to speak and still breathe. What you experiences was called the valsalva effect. It happens automatically as a survival method when you hold your breath while pushing you create extreme pressure that can go to your head and cause an embolism the valsalva effect basically senses this pressure and closes the valves in your arteries going up to your brain so that you do not rupture a blood vessel in your brain. Once this happens you black out, it is the exact same principle in being choked out. They are not really being suffocated to the point of passing out it is the pressure created from blocking those arteries that causes it.

    Doing a great job in here so far. Also I think most people tend to drink there doses all at one time which would explain why you feel a lot more of the focus than the energy. If you wouldn't mind trying it once I would love to hear your impressions if you finish the Stimul8 prior to working out then maybe sip on some BCAA or just water during. If not that is cool, I am just curious.

    thanks, i appreciate it, its just that i have never experienced that before...... weird, we will see how i feel tomorrow with DLs. I will drink more of it right away tomorrow and see how i feel and then jsust sip on a little for the rest of the workout.......... today i took a big chug right before going out to do sprints, but ended up not doing sprints, my legs were like seizing up on me from the leg workout, so i made a shake and went to the store, had CRAZY energy in the store lol

    felt super run down today, went to the gym to do more of a deload workout, lighter weights, not to failure perfect form.............well.....my buddy wanted to work out so we started and i just got into it and it ended up being a decent session. def no DLs today though, hammies are still super sore form legs 2 days ago

    no time to post workout today , sorry


    btw....took a big couple chugs of stimul8 which kept me going strong for 3/4 of the workout then took another swig and was good to go, one heaping scoop is by far enough, no dizzyness problems or anything today during the workout.

    last 2 workouts ive been chuing a bunch of the stmul8 right before teh workout and leaving it in the locker room, this keeps me from sipping on it just because and im realizing most days i dont even need a full scoop thats pretty cool. unfortunately that light headed feeling came back today, i really dont know what is causing it but its whenever i take a deep breath even ifi onlyhold my breath for a short time i get etremely light headed and like a head rush......its almost liek my heart isnt pumping right or something i dunno, never hadthis issue............. kinda scary, leg workout today killed my legs. The weights I used were not much more, however i wasreallyfeeling it today,which is not a bad thing.......


    leg ext 2 warm up 4 set 10-15 strict form, drop on last 2 sets - pre exhaust

    front squat- form o nthese was spot on and have been trying to stay away from using my belt, really was feeling these for a change, felt good

    185x7
    135x as many x 2

    back squat
    195x8
    205x8
    215x8
    215x8

    leg press
    6 plates 8-12 x 5
    4 plates 20-30 x 2 - i decided to stay away from drop sets but instead i added an extra heavy set and did a couple back off set

    hack squat

    4 sets 10-12
    2 sets 15-20

    walking lunge - 4 sets 24 steps

    glute bridge - used lighter weight but felt them way more, i think i was getting my body higher

    275x10x4 - 5-10 second hold on last rep each set

    glute ham raise - 5 sets of 10 - these are AWESOME!

    seated leg curl - 3 sets 8-10 2 sets 12-15

    1 leg lying curl - 3 sets 10-12

    high and wide leg pres for hamstring emphasis - 3 sets 15-20

    You could be breathing faster / more shallow due to the stims so the brain has less oxygen and when the valves close you are already lower on oxygen so less time in the valsalva effect brings the darkness more quickly. That or your BP may be going higher already and the valves close ealier due to the already increased pressure.

    Getting through the sticking point is when that pressure is going to be the highest. So exhaling after is not going to help. Something that may help you is to growl your way through the sticking point. You are releasing some of the pressure while still retaining the internal / guttural pressure because you need back pressure in the vocal cords to produce a growl. Plus it may make you feel animalistic. I tend to do it on accident when I am really in the zone but I have noticed it releases the pressure and keeps me from yelling out when at maximum effort level in a rep.

    Hell for that matter I realize I am growling sometimes as I pace back and forth between a set getting into the zone. My wife pointed it out to me before I even noticed it. LOL I have no idea how long I have done it since I keep my headphones up loud during training.
