    Exactly - if they weren't part of wendlers program, who knows when I'd actually take the time out.

    Surprisingly no... unless hair is frizzy or has product, it doesn't really seem to burn. However I barely have any arm hair...

  3. I can tell you this much, 5-3-1 wouldn't work without the deload. I'm at the stage where I'm pulling 2.3 times my body weight on my LIGHT weeks, and I don't really consider any of my workouts light anymore. My joints, muscles, CNS, and overall well being would be down the drain in a few months at this point without them. At first you can skip them or alternate cycles, but either the weight or your personal limits will push you, it's just a matter of when. Putting in solid work at ~55-65% and focusing on your form and assistance weak points during the deload week goes a long way towards making big gains during the normal training cycle.

    Very much correct sir! It's a great program. I have no plans of changing up anytime soon.

  5. I've had a lot of guys lately ask me how I've increased my strength so much over the past 6 months, etc. I always answer honestly, tell them I workout 1 day less than I used to, do less sets and reps than I used to, and work a lot harder at the work I put in, focusing on small gains every session and maximum recovery. Guys say oh yeah, really? But I doubt they believe me. It really is a great program and a solid formula for success. I'm going into my 7th cycle and nothing has plateaued and gains have been solid. I never had a real program before, I played around with a few but never really liked them, but I like the simplicity mixed with the rigidity of this program. I know what I am supposed to do every workout, and I have to do it. not guessing or making up weights or reps or doing whatever I feel like. And no overcomplicated workouts and endless sets and reps of mediocre exercises that don't really develop long term strength or size gains.

  20. roughly 2/3 scoop G8 last night - I was out like a light & didn't wake up until my alarm. It was magnificent! We were both feeling tired kinda early, so instead of veggin on the couch, took my G8 & hit the hay. The taste isn't anything I'd sip on & savor, but not really the point of it either. Woke up feeling like a million bucks this morning!

    Yea like ive said before i just dump the scoop into my mouth and swig some water, works like a charm!

  22. Milestone for the day: according to the sheets Iím working out for my next 531 cycle, my big 3 total finally hit 1000lbs (theoretically at least) Ė 415 DL, 275 Bench, 310 Squat. One of these days, I would like to set up a mini-meet type scenario for myself & see what I can do in one day, eventually getting into a real meet sometime in the future - one step at a time.

    Deload was very much appreciated & Iím ready to get back at it. Now if the air didnít suck around here, maybe I could breathe out of nose again. Weight has been holding steady at 180 Ėmirror shows more muscle & less fat, I guess Iím ok with that. Iíve started working with slightly heavier practice props as well. That little extra weight is really forcing me to work on my balance & agility, as well as simply locking in my sets via repetition. One month out Ė getting nervous/excited Ė I think the itinerary said something like 15hours in the air from here to PermÖ. Long way from home.

    Definitely enjoying G8 & BCAA/SAA Ė especially together. The nights I donít take G8 Ė Iíve noticed a big difference in how ďzonked outĒ I get. Iíll wake up a time or 2 thru the night usually, not with G8 Ė sorta like the difference between setting a computer to sleep vs turning it completely off.

    BCAA/SAA Ė Iíve been knocking back a scoop after my workouts, either as a substitute for my post shake, or after I have my shake covering the time until I finally eat breakfast/lunch. Iíve tried intraworkout a couple times, but I donít think my workouts are long enough to notice anything really intra. Sometimes Iíll throw a scoop in with my pre. The texture is very smooth Ė some BCAAs Iíve had have been pretty gritty. This will settle a bit, but a quick shake mixes it right back up.

  23. I love products that make you sleep, but those days you gotta get up suck. I'm having a lot of trouble waking up on my ghenerate right now, lol. The nights I cut it I literally jump out of bed. This G8 sounds pretty good.

    Congratz on the total big guy. Def do a practice meet soon.

    The only sleep supp that didn't promote sleeping in has been HGHPro - I'll jump up out of bed after 6 hrs wide awake, no alarm. G8's been great though - really deep sleep.

    Thanks man!

    yeah - I definitely do, need to read up a bit more on how to approach that - where at in the training cycle, how to go thru the motions of the day, etc. I'm interested to see what happens with all 3 in one day - never tried...

  25. I like to do one every 3-4 months. The cube has you do 10 weeks then a mock meet (might be the last week that the mock meet is). You just have to do the proper deload and prep for max weights. Definitely a lot more to it but for a self test I wouldn't get too crazy. You want to prep but not overboard.

    others have commented to the opposite - but myself, I simply never have had an issue waking "groggy" after using G8, no matter how much I use or how much sleep I get
    I've taken it during the day too, when I've gotten stressed out, 1/2 scoop..gives me nice relaxation feeling w/o putting me to sleep
    love this stuff, for real

  27. Sounds pretty sweet. I don't feel groggy I just sleep very very deep with ghenerate. I've never compared the ingredients or their pathways but I'm kinda curious now.

    we are very unique in our formulation..to my knowledge there is nothing on market that comes close to encompassing full structure we utilize
    I like it like that

  29. Sounds good to me. I hope I get to try some out some day.
