  1. Jim gets a month of R+R from the FREAKS over at Finaflex


    What's up AM, running another supplement log for y'all. This time it's the R+R stack from the Finaflex crew, big thanks to Dave for hooking me up.

    Without further ado, lets get things going.

    For those that don't know my names Jim, I just got out of the Army and just started competing in PLing. My first meet was the APF TX Challenge on August 3rd where I totaled a 1055 at 186.6 in the Open Raw.

    Pulled second place with a 402 Squat, 251 Bench, and 402 Deadlift. The next meet is Oct. 19 in Plano for the APF TX Cup where'd I'm shooting for the TX records in Bench, Deadlift, and Total at 181 Junior Raw.

    Supps:
    Finaflex BCAA+SAA (sponsored)
    Finaflex G8 (sponsored)
    Finaflex Max Pump (personal)
    Controlled Labs Green Magnitude (personal)

    And I'll be alternating preworkouts between USPLabs Jack3d Micro, USPLabs Jack3d AF, and Purus Labs Muscle Marinade.

    Diet:

    I'll be doing a VERY mild cut down to 179-181 from my current 185. I don't track my calories much (no need) but I'll be cutting carbs (mildly) and tracking my weight throughout this log.

    Last night was my first night with G8, I took a half scoop and it actually took me a while to fall asleep (wife was watching TV again) but I felt a kind of muscle relaxation about 20-30 minutes after taking it. Slept really deep, like really deep after I fell asleep. Woke up feeling energized, until I layer down to watch TV at 2 (woke up at 8) and passed out until 430-5.

    Initial Taste: not pleasant , as Sean put it, the flavor is very....earthy. It literally smells like dirt, taste is similar. But GD if it works I don't even care.

  6. I mixed mine with a scoop of the BCAA+SAA at the recommendation of the Finaflex gents and my green concoction tasted much much better than G8 by itself.

    What flavor BCAA did you get? The apple tastes exactly like jolly rancher.

  7. First workout update:

    Aug. 7 : RE Upper

    Pre: 4 caps Max Pump, 1.5 Scoop Jack3d Micro, 1 Scoop Green Magnitude
    Intra: 1 Scoop BCAA/SAA

    Bench Press: 185x8, 205x8
    2 Board Bench: 225x4x2, 225x3 (disappointed. Wanted sets of 6, but its only the second time I've ever done it and it kept coming towards my head)

    a1. HS High Row: 135x6, 115x6, 125x6
    a2. Ball Pull-up: BWx6x2. Chin up: BWx6

    Meadows Row: 50+Chain x5, 75+Chain x5

    1 Arm Landmine OHP: 45x5, 90x5


    Initial Review: taste is good, kind of sweet. Like a candy apple kind of flavor, refreshing although it took a while to get it watered down enough. I felt strong for this session, my right RC is a bit sore but nothing bad enough to be concerned about, had a pretty sexy pump today. Intra set recovery was good.

    I have some video of the Meadows Row (I think that's what I did lol), couldn't figure out what to do with my other arm lol. Felt good overall.



    Also, I am doing this on mobile right now as I don't get internet until Friday, so I will go a little more in depth after the internet is back up. :bigthumbup:

    I don't wanna do that because I'll run out too soon!

    lol I know, me neither, but I didnt do **** today so I put that scoop to its flavorful use. I'll probably just shoot it with a few oz of water here on out. It's not terrible.

    I always feel awkward as hell doing the Meadows rows lol

  11. Apple fusion tastes best with ice. Shaken, not stirred. Just throwing it out there.

    They are fun, in a strange way.

    Smoked the grip after those 2 sets so I just did a set of regular chins (and my RC was being whiny)


    Ill try to get a video next time.

    I did.

    I took another half scoop and passed out after about 30-45 minutes, woke up for my alarm and looked at it and said "nope" and went back to sleep.

    Got about 6 hours but woke up feeling pretty alert, although my body felt tired.


    Feeling good now that I'm moving.

  30. yeah, sort of affects me like that as well jim
    there is nothing in existence, that will give me a "nationally recognized as needed" 8hrs sleep/night - period
    i have long not required (or been able to accomplish for that matter) long extended sleep, my body is just wired that way..i think this changes when i was teens, prior to that i was deep sleeper/needed my min 8hrs; now, 6hrs is ~average, and really all i need to be refreshed and recharged
    where i do notice the difference hugely however, is in the ability to be able to fall asleep to begin with, and the soundness with which i do sleep once i get there..a very light sleeper usually, i can go thru entire nights w/o waking up while on G8 (well - except if i have to pee or something )
    and even when i only get 4-5hrs sleep on G8, i still awaken energetic and ready to roll, pop outta bed like toast coming out of the toaster

    big fan of this product, have never really experienced anything like it that is so consistently noticeable and effective, insofar as sleep products go
