    Another good night of sleep. I dosed a half scoop again around 1020 and was asleep before 11. I woke up once around 2 to piss and thought "oh man I'm sleeping good" and fell right back asleep until 7.

    After about 15 minutes of taking a dosage, I feel a subtle relaxation. I credit that to the GABA content.

    I also took a scoop of the BCAA/SAA last night and holy crap Finaflex-Good job on the flavoring. It's probably one of the most refreshing tasting powders I've tried. I was concerned with the consistency of the powder, as most BCAA's are so light that they take a while to settle but this definetly was not the case.

    Squats today.

    It mixes very well. Tastes better with some ice thrown in and shaken up, IMHO. Awesome squats BTW.
    Squats do a booty good.

    STRONGLY advise this for you - for anyone, actually
    I mean I love apple fusion, in fact last 4 jugs I've gotten were that flav, simple because prior I had been doing a shyte ton of blue ras (of course AF wasn't available at that time)..this last monthly order tho, I picked up 3 BR flav, and will now just keep the AF to mix with my G8 for nighttime concoction
    somehow, I cannot see the mixture of BR flav + G8, mixed together

    Work. Oncoming this morning. Normally I eat breakfast once I get on duty before muster but I got rushed and had to handle the section reliefs and morning brief and then had people come by to inspect some SAR gear that I'm responsible for so I didnt get a chance to eat until lunch.

    So...3 chicken parms, chili, then flank steak for dinner. Regardless of sequestration, I still eat a crap load at work :P

    I can confirm. I've had to buy the individual packet ones to eat on the go because the ones sold in the big bags are unsafe to be around, ha ha.

    So yesterday, like I said, I took a serving of BCAA/SAA around 0900. Last night all I did was some soft tissue release on the glutes, side hip, and thoracic spine with the lacrosse ball, voodoo knee compression to relieve some pain and some banded distractions to help clear a right hip impingment.

    I dosed a 1/2 scoop of G8 with 8oz of water at 1045. Again, I noticed the relaxed/calming affect of it within 20 minutes or so and passed out and woke up at 6, without waking up once during the night. I also gave the guy I share a duty room with at work a 1/2 scoop as well and he said he was out like a light.

    Today will be some bench pressing/back/tricep work after dinner.

    I havent experienced any DOMS from Sundays squats. My hips and knees ache a tad, but that's not from anything muscular obviously.

    Between him and I, we have a full supplement store in our lockers at work lol

    That's all he gets though, the rest is mine, damnit.

    As a side note: I did got the slightest of headaches when I laid down in bed for about 5 minutes. I'm not sure if that's from the Phenibut in the product or if it's completely unrelated. Could be from a number of things. I've never taken anything with Phenibut before. I'm a huge GABA fan and like how I can get the same relaxed feeling from G8. Other products that contain GABA are severely underdosed IMO and work soley off of whatever meletonin or valerian root is in it.

    yes G8 is really nice blend of compounds - all truly effective, and there for a synergistic reason
    the headache - could be, altho this is certainly not something that is commonly ascribed to phenibut - but that compound can have wide variances in how you tolerate it too..big thing is, make sure you are rotating use ie take 1-2 days off weekly (I prefer 2 myself)

    Thanks for the advice. I was looking up information on Phenibut last night so I had it in my had that it was a possible cause. I haven't noticed anybody else mentioning it in other logs, so it's probably unrelated. It's been a few days on so I'll take it off tonight. We'll see the differences in sleep quality at least.

    Bench 5x1@95% of T1RM
    http://youtu.be/1Q-T0uEf6zA

    Warmup
    DeFranco Simple 6
    Couch stretch

    Bench Press
    250x5x1
    275x1x5 + 2-Board (2-Board PR, including shirted work?)

    JM Press
    185x5x5

    Dips
    BWx5x10

    Pull-ups
    Wide Grip x2x8
    Neutral Grip x1x7
    " " x3x6

    Seated DB Cleans/Banded Tri Pressdown/Banded Crunches 20's/Lights

    Shoulders were snap, crackle, and poppin tonight. No bueno. Severe lack of energy all day but I made the most of my Bench and JM Presses. Diet combined with work was screwed up today.

    1x BCAA/SAA with 10oz water and ice post workout while my stomach settles so I can get some good in. Forgot if I mentioned or not, but this powder mixes very easily. Normally any BCAA powder is so light it takes forever for it to settle. More n more I'm liking the taste as well. It's in my top 3 powdered flavors I think.
