A Month of R&R w/ FinaFlex

Page 1 of 6 123 ... Last

  1. Finaflex G8 and BCAA/SAA's

    I appreciate the hookup from the Finaflex reps. This is my very first Finaflex product I've used so I'm pretty excited. Ive always followed the logs and product releases so now is my time to see what the products will do for me.

    I'm 26 years old. Currently training for a raw meet October 12th with the Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate. This meet will be a 2014 Worlds qualifier and I'm looking to total Elite with 600/335/560.

    My current raw lifts are 565/300/525. Single-ply suit numbers are 600/365/560. I'm following Jim Wendler's Advanced 5/3/1 template from his new book "Beyond 5/3/1" I train 4x per week Squat/Bench/Deads/OHP. On my off days, when work and family allows me time, I'll do some sort of conditioning. I'll my workouts and video'd sessions will be posted here as well as the mobility work.

    Common products that I have taken in the past are NP's MBCAA and UspLabs MBCAA. As for sleep products, I've played around with high dosed GABA, melatonin, and HGHPro.

    My other supplement line up is: Anabeta, 50mg Forskolin-95 ED, Multi, Fish Oil, Cissus, Joint Force, PeakBeta+, CitMal, random prewos, and a pluthera of GDA's. (Let me know if any of these will interfere with log integrity and I'll drop them ASAP)

    I work 2 days on/2 days off with the Coast guard at a search & rescue station. I never fully adapt to sleeping in a bed, as I'm constantly back and forth. I have a year and a half old son that likes to make his way into my bed when I'm home....so hopefully G8 makes me sleep through some kicks and punches!

    My next workout will be Sunday. Squats at 95% of my T1RM and reverse band beyond 100% possibly. I'll begin the BCAA/SAA then and G8 will commence tonight!

    There won't be any ripped abs in this thread but you guys will get to see some heavy weight being moved. I'm getting into the mobility work a lot more so hopefully people can learn from that as well. I'll most likely ask you some diet advice though. Carb cycling at the moment, weighing 210. I'll drop some water to compete 198 in Oct.

    I was going to test your new stim product from the promo but the second I got selected, my doctor thought I was borderline tachycardic so i had to drop the logging oppurtunity. Cardiologist verified a few weeks after that I'm fine.

    I actually just ordered your multi just a minute ago so I can add that into this log as well when it comes in. I ought some FF PH's a while ago but returned them for personal reasons. Someday..

    Sweet.

    I was beginning to worry!

  14. How do you like the taste of the Apple Fusion? I'm logging that right now as well. Seems like a lot of FF threads popping up lately.

    Are you going to mix the two? Makes the G8 taste much better. Thanks for the video. I always try to get my feet back as far as I can but never even thought of taking that approach seems much better. I can hardly get them back the way I do it.

    It cost me good money to get your cardiologist to say that too.


    But it was all worth it in the end!

    I'll mix it next time I think.

    If my feet go too far back, I loose leg drive. Just experiment and see what works for ya. My bench is horrible compared to my other lifts and it's a work in process

  22. So Update 1

    I took 1/2 scoop. I measured out ~5.5g

    I slept like a rock. I took it around 1015 and by 1045 I was feeling pretty tired and relaxed. I woke up once for a split second and fell right back asleep. I woke up feeling refreshed. I'm awake and alert, not groggy feeling at all. So far it's a plus.

    G8 definetly has an earthly taste to it but it wasnt terrible.

    LMAO, now there's a descriptive term you don't see applied much to a supplement

    haha I think I heard AZ describe a supp like that before and it just fits the bill I think. Like I said, it ain't terrible at all.

    I'm hoping the rain holds off so I can get some sprints in at the track. Looking forward to tasting the BCAA/SAA.

    How do you recommend dosing? I know there's thread after thread after thread on BCAA dosing. I've always been used to it intra or post if I'm unable to get a meal in.

    yep like that is fine: can be used pre/intra/postWO (best)..upon rising..before bed..or anytime thruout day you can't get food in, or want to add some protein content to your meals
    very versatile, these things

    Today I took BCAA+SAA pre work out and post work out. I'll finish tonight with a last dose before bedtime.

    Good stuff....easy to get some extra quality ''food'' in .

    Blue rasp bottle almost finished,luckily have a full apple fusion waiting for me

    Love the taste of both....
    OLYMPUS UK REP

  27. Im excited for my blue ras to get in as im out of the apple fusion :-(.

    I take my BCAA+SAAs intra-workout and what its done for my recovery is insane. I murdered my back yesterday to the point where i was positive id have DOMS today, woke up and not even a hint of soreness!

    So jelly. :'( Haven't done a proper back workout in 2 weeks. As far as dosing, I drink it right before bed cuz that's how I roll.
