    Time for some much needed R&R: Finaflex style! (Sponsored)


    Big thanks to Iparatroop and the rest of the Finaflex crew for hooking me up with this opportunity to log the Recovery Stack (G8 and BCAA+SAA). I have been really impressed with the other Finaflex products I have tried and thus will be adding MaxPUMP and Ignite2 to round out this stack.

    I'll be utilizing Lane Norton's P.H.A.T. training protocol. Currently have 2 weeks under my belt to get a feel for it, and so far so good. Split looks like this:

    Day 1 - Upper Body Power
    Day 2 - Lower Body Power
    Day 4- Back & Shoulders Hypertrophy
    Day 5 - Lower Body Hypertrophy
    Day 6 - Chest & Arms Hypertrophy

    I have been starting my workouts off with a 5-7km run in the mornings, and then adding a 2nd cardio session in the form of a 8km fast paced walk in the evenings. I hope to continue this, as it is helping to slowly lean me out.

    Plan on dosing G8 with BCAA+SAA after my 2nd session 30 minutes prebed.

    Typically, I do not sleep very well. Usually averaging 5-6 hours of broken sleep a night. At times I also suffer from night terrors which can be somewhat disturbing as they usually result in what feels like sleep paralysis. Hoping, I will get some good quality 'recovery' sleep.

    My log will officially begin a week today, as I am going to NYC for a few nights with my wife - and want to start this fresh with both oars in the water. As always any questions, advice, criticsms are welcomed...

    I have been doing cardio 2 a days now for about 3 weeks. Starting to see some changes too. Going to definitely keep it up for as long as possible.

    I have been doing Lane Norton's set up for 2 weeks, wanted to feel it out and so far I am pretty impressed with it.

    2-a-day cardio is rough. Pay close attention to the hammies. From what I've noticed, they seem to be the weaker link (first to have issues) when doing a lot of cardio.

    I can agree with this
    slight tweak of my L hammy during cardio has been my ONLY issue, my entire prep

    Yeah Hammies get tight very quickly. Especially if you are not religious about your water intake.

    Truth.
    Too easy to stretch those bad boys out throughout the day, especially after intense cardio.
    When I could still run, 5+ mile runs with hills used to make mine real tight. I made sure to stretch every hour or two throughout the rest if the day. Helped immensely.

    Will do, making sure to keep things stretched, and of course if I feel anything negative - it stops.

    On top of the water... ensuring 2gal per day if not more.

    Back from my trip to New York. Had a fantastic time. Nasty show at the Comedy Cellar was definitely the highlight for me...

    My first dose of G8 will be tonight. First workout on this will be tomorrow morning after a 5km run. Should be a sweet ride, and sorry for the wait.

    Alright, let's get this off to a blazing start.

    Last night, had my first dose of G8. 1/2 a scoop around 1120pm. I have the Lemon flavor, it mixed really well, not a bad taste at all, no after taste, no sediment. The last time I looked at the clock it was 1136pm. Next thing I knew it was 718am and that was just a blink as when I finally opened my eyes it was 843am. 9 hours of sleep; 8 hours unbroken - impressive. As mentioned earlier, I typically average 5 hours, 6 if I am lucky .. and it is always broken either with nightmares, or bathroom breaks.

    Sleep last night - 8 hours unbrokend - Excellent
    Dream status - if I had one, I am clueless to it
    Morning feeling - slightly groggy but shook it off relatively fast.

    Workout:

    8/17/13

    Got up: dumped 4 caps of MaxPUMP into a scoop of Ignite and was out the door for my run.

    Warmup - 5km run through park (fasted). First run in 5 days. Knees, etc felt good, had a good pace going as well.

    Day 1 - Upper Body Power

    Bent Over Rows - Rest 90 seconds
    160x5
    160x5
    180x5
    190x5
    200x5 - thought I tweaked my back a little on the last couple of rows, but I am fine...

    Wide-Neutral Grip Pulldowns - 45 seconds rest
    200x10
    210x10
    220x8

    Close-grip Palms facing Pulldowns - 45 seconds rest
    200x10
    210x10
    210x8

    Bench Press - 90 seconds rest
    180x8
    180x8
    260x5
    270x5
    270x4

    Flat Dumbbell Press - 60 seconds rest
    70x10
    70x8
    70x8 - really pushed hard for 9 but only got it up half way before failing

    Military Shoulder Press - 90 seconds rest
    160x8
    160x8
    160x8

    Ez Bar Curls supersetted with Facepulls - 30 seconds rest after each superset
    100x10 / 100x12
    100x10 / 100x12
    100x10 / 100x10

    Closegrip Bench Press supersetted with Machine Flies - 30 seconds rest after each superset
    165x10 / 100x10
    165x10 / 100x10
    165x8 / 100x9


    All in all this was a great first workout. Really enjoyed my time away from lifting (5 days total), but last night was definitely itching to get back into the garage. Had great energy throughout and a solid pump by the end of my session.

    This evening I will add in a second cardio session: 8km fast paced walk (2km of which is uphill).

    My first dose of BCAA/SAA will be after this cardio session - which will be 2 hours post dinner.

    Thanks again to Iparatroop and Finaflex for this opportunity to sleep!

    Glad you like the G8, brother - Sleep is more important than anything IMO! I just got a new bed/mattress/ memory foam topper - so no sleep aid needed here
