formutech's flexible joint support beta test by Bo
allright got mine yesterday evening and took my first dose at dinner.
initial reaction is that it is very sweet at 10 ounces. hit it with a couple shots of passionfruit cherry mio and it took off the edge.
not sure what the time is one it kicking in i will check with the reps .
off day today and yesterday very busy with running around and the kids. Back to work tomorrow so we will see what we get in, might have to be at home.
history on me , i am 52 have a shoulder injury (not diagnosed, though the chiro says it is a bicep and trap strain that hasn't healed)
i am hoping this substance helps in those areas , if nothing more that strengthening the joints.
5/3/1 wendler training methos with bodybuilder supplement work.
i will be taking a preworkout from performax along with this and logging it also.
i may be able to throw in a ph or two somewhere in the middle . i need to get all my stuff together first.
so that is it for now , tag along if you wanton these logs. thanks to formutech for this opportunity and i will give it my all. Bo.

wide grip pull downs -4 sets super set with reverse close grip pd's- 10-12 at around 80
dumbbell bentover rows 35's for 10-12
skull krushers and close grip press (with same bar) 55 for 4sets 10
cheater ez bar curls 55 4 sets 8-10
hammer curls superset with seated dumbbell curls 3 sets 10-12- 35 lbs
didn't go to far with the bicep tendon . now ice for 20 minutes stim for 20 minutes and dinner

10-20-2013, 09:30 PM
I would concur, about 5-7 days you should start to notice the effects. Flexible has been a staple I mine.

i believe my problems are more muscle related than joint . even though it comes into play with everything. i hope so i only get around 4 hours of sleep because of it.
10-21-2013, 12:30 PM
Interesting on the sweetness comment. We have other logs running and one person said it was to tart and wished it was sweeter! Flavor is so independent with people. You should feel joint effects in 5-7 days as stated. If it is muscle then may not tell a difference.
10-24-2013, 07:32 PM

been dealing with all sort of problems her at home , lawnmover broke, heat pump broke, me broke! you know the story so what else to do but work out my frustrations at the gym. had a long night with no heat and it hitting the twenties so i lite the logs and stayed up making sure the kids and the wife we well heated. got warm about 4 am so i woke at 6 and turned them on high to get everyone toasty for the morning.
now on the training. at breakfast 4 eggs , 1 cup oatmeal , brown sugar poptart and coffee. took my preworkout with ,Formutech flexible and fish oil and off i went with a vengence!

shoulder and bicep tendon are still mending slowly. i don't push it too hard just enough to get the work done. joints are ok. i believe i am fighting a bug , not bad just that achy feeling you get right before you start coughing or sneezing you know the rest. hate that stuff, always happens just when i am getting in the zone.

i am using fitmax from performax labs . it doesn't have the huge stimulation like i have had from say bsn or psi products. i can't take being overloaded with that . now that is at a one scoop dosing and i know some people crank up the amount they use. i look at it this way if you are looking for a no product to do all the work as far as a pump goes you're not working hard enough in the gym.

Ok haven't been logging for a couple days but still hitting the flexible and the weights.
Joints ate doing ok. Now really feeling the difference I thought though. Still pretty weak in my shoulder and my wrist started bothering me today alittle just tinges of weakness now and then.
Did legs yesterday and I paid for it this afternoon. Sore as hell. But that is the price we pay to do this thing we do.

hey guys still around . has gotten very busy in my life recently and i am having a hard time training and logging. but here we go i have been taking the flexible daily and have maybe 4 days left of supp left. so far i thought it wasn't much because you really need to stay on this type for a while to feel it effects. i guess they must have been kicking in because i worked back friday without taking it all weekend (left it at work) and my back was kicking my butt come saturday night. took it today at work again and hit the back aagain tonight at home .we shall see the difference tomorrow. i fear the shoulder or bicep will need work sometime over the holidays which sucks , i just started gaining a little weight back (2 lbs ) and i am probably going to have to take it easy with no workouts but we shall see. wish me luck.

so instead of hunting this morning after work i lifted.
shoulders and they will be remining me of it tomorrow because it was AWESOME!!!!!
MIXED UP THE ROUTINE today to shock them . did some torq work with seated dumbbell presses
faced down revierse raises same amount
seated military press o n the smith
75 for 10
75 for 4 sets of 10
25-10 4 sets
finished with Reggie's favorite- destroyers
4 sets 25,15,5 to failure
my traps and delts and pulsing as we speak and that was over two hours ago.
my ass will be hurting in the morning.
now since andro's website forum is all screwed up i will say this , is tarted on bulk up 10 days ago and got p-bold tuesday. dosage is 4 caps ulk up in th morning with fish oil, hawthorne berry and 3 mls of p-bold
p-bold in the evening before dinner or right after training whichever comes first 3 mls
i am excited to see what will happen on these compounds the reviews and logs of the andro mass products were really motivating . we shall see.
whether or not i add a methly at the end or during depends on money. if so i will add it to both this and the andro log. i am still on fitmax by performax labs and flexible by formutech almost done with them though maybe 7 more days.
11-18-2013, 05:00 PM
got my last dose of flexible on task for tomorrow. did an awesome wrokout today. we shall see how it help with them tomorrow but today there were no issues joint wise. i will know i will miss it.
for the final review i would say this- like all g/c products you don't miss it til its gone and that will be the same with this. you never feel it working but it is there. the couple days i took off form it i paid the price and was achy as hell in my elbows.
i would recommend cutting the sweetness down a notch ,a little tartness helps alot . mixability is great , tossing it with a preworkout or creatine product would work great . i think Forumtech has a winner here and i really got to thank Swanks for letting me run with this . i hope i met the expectations and sorry if i didn't.
for my opinion you have a good product that works like it says. you can't ask for more than that from anyone. Good job boys! and thanks again. Bo. i will be placing a copy of this on the supplement review page.
