    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.
    Great workout and i love those JM presses. My left shoulder pops n feels weird when i do lat pulldowns sometimes. Im not sure if its the angle or what.

    The powder mixes great i must agree and the flavors are spot on!

    Yeah the JM presses are easy on the shoulders too. I need to implement them a lot more.

    Ive been battling crap shoulders. More rear delt work has been helping but I've been lazy with it lately. It could be the angle maybe.

  3. Agreed on the mixability (think I just made up a word). Taste, not my absolute favorite but like you, it's in my top three and that says a lot.

    My shoulders used to pop a lot before I focused more on rear delt work. I can't be sure, but I'd like to think that it has helped, as I don't notice quite as much popping, if any at all, anymore.

  4. It's crisp and refreshing, which a lot of powders aren't. I think this, and OG Jack3d Fruit Punch are my favorite powder flavors.

    .

    Got off work this morning. I took advantage of having the house to myself and just slept. Woke up and didnt feel like doing sprints on the track. I'll hit up the prowler after tomorrow's deadlifts.

    Low carb day, which I still can't get used too. Just did a light mobility WOD tonight. Soft tissue release with the lacrosse ball, worked on my shoulders, external rotation of the hips, and hip flexors.

    I took a 1/2 scoop of G8 and 1 scoop of BCAA+SAA to assist with the taste. It took me a bit longer to achieve the relaxed state (~45 min) but I plowed some ground beef before hand so that's why.

  5. Good stuff in here bud.

    I'm just starting to work on my arch for bench. Holy uncomfortable but man it makes a difference in form. It's no wonder my shoulders are effed up from my shytty form over the years.

    G8 is definitely I'm it's own category. I have two tubs in my stash. Good stuff

  6. Thanks, man. Bench press is the one lift that just hasn't "clicked" for me, and it hurts my Total. There's too many variables involved. Completely agree with you on the shoulder health.

    So....I slept the same amount of time as I did the night before (when I didnt take G8). Once I got out of bed I already felt alert and awake. Yestersay, all I wanted to do was go back to sleep, which I did.

    Normally on my off days, I'll drop my son off at daycare then go back home to sleep. Today, that's unnecessary. I'll be plowing mashed potatoes, sweet potato fries to get ready for deadlifting, instead

  7. Sub'd! I saw the post about mixing the G8 & BCAA/SAA - that makes a great combo, imo

    I agree - I'll drink G8 & can feel a relaxing wave come over about 15 minutes after

    Couldn't get a groove until the 5th set.

    So this is my last set of 450 and my 515x3. I was on my toes again with 450 and was having trouble pushing out on them. Hip flexors weren't feeling it at all and I had trouble getting my hips into the bar. I compare the position and push through the sides of my feet at 450 and 515. 515 felt great and I felt a nice pop up because of it. I need to reciprocate that feeling.

    So, my ****ing right hip is frustrating the crap out of me. SI joint possibly? Just feels blocked when trying to open. Ideas?

  12. Bed at 1045, awake at 0515. Shy over half scoop G8 and half scoop BCAA+SAA taken at 10.

    I woke up in the middle of the night to turn the AC a bit cooler. I don't wanna say I felt intoxicated, but I had been sleeping so hard I woke up a little delirious and I just want to get back to sleep

    Now I'm a bit groggy. Wanted to sleep more.

    Did that last night. Didn't wake up once and wasn't drowsy this morning at all!!
    Life's a garden, dig it

  16. So... is it possible the effects become more pronounced? I half scooped it again last night. I woke up about an hour after falling asleep to take a piss (note to self: stop drinkin so much damn water) and I was stumbling around to the bathroom I was so sleepy. It's ****ing awesome. I laid back down and was out like a light and didnt wake up once. That being said, I'll be refraining from taking more than a half scoop while on duty and my off days will be scheduled on days I'm on duty. I've taken other sleep supps and have woke. up in the middle of the night to respond to a case and have woken up fine. G8, I'm unsure how long it'll take me to become fully alert when not allotted an appropriate sleep time. However, after 6 hours of sleep, I perked right up out of bed.

    May try a full scoop tonight. Headed to the gym now

  17. actually no - it is most powerful at first, and becomes better tolerated and less impactful the more you use it
    this is why I advise the 5on/2off rotation of use, to not only keep effects fresh and new again, but also to avoid any habit-forming addiction where you then require it to go to sleep
    if not used properly, this formulation can present all kinds of issues

    Fair enough. Must have been G8, combined with a long day at work and waking up shortly after falling asleep.

  20. Yeah if you get near the 8 hour mark there is no grogginess at all. Could also be that you woke up earlier in the process to urinate than normal so you felt more disoriented? Still if on duty a lower dose is a good idea.

    I think I was just beat from the day and felt disoriented when I woke up from a deep sleep. Nothing concerning.

    Full scoop last night was great. Not too much of a difference between a half and full, so I'll keep it at a half so I can keep taking it longer

    Half scoop is my personal sweet spot. Btw make sure to shake the tub. G8 settles quite a bit so you might be thrown off a bit by the dosage in that regard. I noticed if I let it sit two days without shaking then I get a little denser half scoop then when it's shaken and fluffy. Plus all the good stuff is at the bottom then

    I've had sick people around me for the past 2-3 months and continue to avoid it. Been lucky, real lucky. Being sick blows.

  28. I get sick like once a year and will usually vomit anything I eat and end up losing 10lbs

    Rest of the year I'm fine lol

    So I normally set alarms on my phone every 5 minutes until I have to get up. It's annoying but if I don't, I'll silence it and continue sleeping. This way I'm a bit more conscious by the 5th alarm to know I gotta get up.

    This morning the first alarm went off. Laid there thinking Id fall back asleep. Nope. Not with G8. I'm feeling rested enough to get my ass out of bed for work.

    Ah, the power of good supplements. I used to love the snooze button too. More often than not, I wake up before the alarm anymore. Was annoying at first but I'm glad when I don't have to hear that wretched sound.

  30. No gym today. I don't have it in me after work today. Rather spend the few hours I have with mini-me.

    BCAA+SAA and G8 cocktail commencing in 30 minutes. Let the green help me sleep!
