    we all dream, all the time during sleep;
    whether we remember them or not, is entirely different issue

    That would be it,my sleep was broken.. But only once and briefly at that.. smart a$$ lol. You can be a funny dude Steve.

    How do they know we are always dreaming, if we do not remember? Brain activity?

    That's correct NA it is

    full negatives on squats are almost impossile. You would need 2 spotters, and it would be highly risky business

    9/23/2013

    Dosed a 1/2 scoop of G8 at 11:00pm

    Sleep last night - 7.5 hours - broken only once Snags

    Dream status - No recollection

    Morning feeling - Wide awake.

    Did a quick 5km run through the park this morning and then off to work.

    No weights today.

    - I have decided to play with dosing on my last few scoops. At full scoop I am dead to the world, wake groggy but am able to shake it off fairly quick. Dream status was either strong dreaming awareness or nothing. 1/2 scoop good restful sleep (sometimes aware of my dreams sometimes not) and usually awake refreshed.


    - There is no water in our building here at work. So we are going for the day! No bathrooms/no sprinklers... good day!

    Trying to catch up, looking good in here so far though, Simon. Glad you're enjoying the products. I'll be taking my first dose of G8 in about a month and a half tonight. I can't wait.

    Word, things are well. Was gone for a few weeks to take part in a selection process. Grueling but well worth it.

    Dosed a 1/2 scoop of G8 at 11:00pm

    Sleep last night - 7 hours - woke twice as I drank far too much water prebed, no issues going back to sleep though.

    Dream status - No recollection

    Morning feeling - Wide awake.

    Upon rising did a fasted 5.5km run through the park this morning and then off to work.

    Legs Hypertrophy still to come - after work.

    One scoop of G8 remains...f**k. It's great. And that said, tomorrow will write up my review of both products.

    Excellent detail my friend. As far as the dreams go, I very rarely remember my dreams (probably a good thing) so the g8 doesn't bother me in that aspect.
    Good volume, by the way. I like it.

    9/26/2013

    Dosed a 1 scoop of G8 at 11:45pm

    Sleep last night - 7 hours - unbroken

    Dream status - No recollection

    Morning feeling - A bit groggy, but for mere minutes

    Upon rising did a fasted 5 km run through the park this morning and then off to work - the lack of BCAASAA showed this morning, legs are very sore.

    Chest/Arms Hypertrophy is after work - and will be detailed in my Stimul8 log.



    FINAL THOUGHTS/REVIEW


    G8

    1) This product helped me fall asleep: 5 - I have found with all but one instance, I was asleep within 40 minutes of taking G8.
    Typically it was in the 25-30 minutes range. Just felt relaxed when getting in bed, eyes got heavy and out...

    2) This product provided deep restful sleep: 5 - Most nights I slept through the night and for on average 7-8 hours. If I woke,
    it was a brief trip the bathroom and falling asleep was just part of the trip. Most mornings I could not recollect any dreams,
    which was a great for me - no night terrors at all while on G8. I did dose it close to carbs twice, and those in turn were my
    worst sleeps. I would not say that is a fault of G8, as most sleep aids instruct you to not take within an hour of carbs. I
    usually woke alert, refreshed and ready to go for my daily run. On a few occasions I was a bit groggy. However, was able to
    shake it off quickly. I did dose the product at 1/2, 3/4, 1 and a heaping scoop. Funny enough 1/2 was probably the best bang
    for the buck. Very effective and always woke refreshed.

    3) This product enhanced my recovery: 5 - I would have to say my recovery was improved due to having a deep restful sleep almost
    every night. I was stacking this with BCAASAA which would also play a role in regards to recovery. That said, it only makes
    sense that a full nights sleep will help with recovery.

    4) This product helped me relax: 5 - Even after a stressful day or evening I would take my dose before getting into bed and just
    feel comfortable and relaxed. Most thoughts, would just slip away.

    5) I really enjoyed this product and would recommend it to friends and family: 5 - Plain and simple, this product does exactly
    as it claims. And it does it well.

    Final thoughts: Being someone who rarely gets a full nights sleep I believe I would be foolish to not order another container of
    G8. I had no negative side effects from it, it mixes well and is easy to drink.


    BCAA+SAA

    1) This product enhanced my recovery: 5 - I felt a greater sense of recovery. DOMS were less significant and my numbers were
    constant, if not improved throughout my log. I have not used it in almost a week and my last couple of workouts have
    left me with more soreness than throughout my run.

    2) This product helped me power through my training sessions: 5 - I played with my dosing a little here. Dosed before bed with
    G8, before my workouts, and before my runs while fasted in the early morning. The latter proved to be the most effective for
    me. My runs were faster and this carried through to my workouts (after my runs) where I achieved greater endurance.

    3) This product kept me hydrated: 5 - I would have to say yes. Although I drink a lot of water throughout the day. I
    experienced no cramping at all while on BCAASAA.

    4) This product tasted great: 5+ - Easily one of the best tasting supplements I have tried. It also mixed exceptionally well
    with G8 when I used it at night and with Ignite2/MaxPUMP before a workout.

    6) I really enjoyed this product and would recommend it to friends and family: 5 - Excellent product, that again does exactly
    what it claims, and better than any of the regular BCAA products I have tried.

    Final thoughts: Superb taste (addictive), reduced DOMS - effective.


    This has been a great ride, and once more Finaflex have proven they are on top of their game. Thanks again to @iparatroop and the rest of the team for this opporutnity. I will post these reviews at supplementreviews as well as in the supplement review section here.

    This is one of the most detailed reviews that I have seen in a long time. 5s across the board is pretty good, in my opinion. Thank you for your time and efforts, Simon. I think it's safe to say that both BCAA/SAA and G8 are home runs. Good luck with stimul8 too. Took my first hack at it this morning and all I can say is "damn".
    Oh, and you're welcome, but more importantly, thanks again.
