Gettin' Flexible with Formutech
- 10-22-2013, 06:23 PM
Thanks, Swanks, for letting me give this a shot. It's been a while since I've taken a cissus product so I'm looking forward to it. My shoulders and knees will definetly benefit from it.
26 years old, 208lbs, competitive powerlifter, training 4x a week. Off days will consist of using the prowler, doing core work, or mobility WOD's.
Yesterday's session consisted of conventional deadlifts- 5 sets of 405 followed by block pulls and deficit pulls. Assistance work was unilateral leg work, glute ham raise, and some back stuff.
Today I hit up the prowler: 180lbs x 20 yards x 10 sprints
Followed by a mobility WOD
If you guys want, I can copy and paste the actual workout sessions from my training log or just an update like that. Lemme know!
I'll give an honest review of the product. I'll update everytime I workout, and anytime something pertinent comes up.
Tomorrow I'll take some pictures of how it mixes and the container. I'm unimpressed with the visual aspect of the tub it comes in, but I don't really care. It's a fine powder, which mixes easily, even with a spoon. Smells and tastes just how it should. Slightly tart with only 6oz of water but it still tasted just fine. Now...saying that something tastes good with Cissus in it, doesn't make sense, because Cissus tastes like complete ******* in raw form, so good job Formutech on the taste.

Right on dude, looking forward to the feedback! You can post your workout logs if ya like, or just post nudes. You know, whatever. Lol
Really excited to see how you guys like this. Flexible is the best joint support on the market and bringing it in powder form should allow us to bring to to many more peoplrFormutech Nutrition Rep----------------Check out my CONQU3R log!:

Sorry for the lack of updates. I was at work the last 48 hours and forgot my product at home.
I got off today and hit the gym:
Squats 8 sets of 370x3
Front Squats 3 sets ending with 325x6
SSB Squat 3 sets of 315x8
SSB Good Mornings ending with 265x7
Glute Ham Raise and then the prowler
Slammed some food along with the product. Again, no complaints with taste or mixability. I look forward to it being a staple for the next few weeks.

Stirred briskly for 20 seconds. Tastes like fruit punch Kool-Aid with a very slight bulk ingredient aftertaste, but it doesn't linger.

Here is today's session. My 4th lift day each week is a "Body Day" which is higher rep work of anything that's a weakness. My lower body is my strongest, and I try to hit back 3x a week, so these days will be focused around pressing and back.
Scoop in the morning and taking my 2nd serving now

Not too much to report on here. Shoulders are still aching a bit but I'm still able to get my competition bench going good. They tighten up pretty fast though once I'm down. Knees and hips are still feeling great.
The product mixes up well, but if it's not mixed with anything, you can definetly taste the Cissus.

Yesterday was a squat day.
Hit 460 for 5 sets of 2 reps followed by reverse banded 550 for 2 sets of 3.
Normally my shoulders feel wrecked after squatting, but after some myofacial release and of course Flexible, they actually aren't killing me.
Heading in later for some upper body work.

Shoulders are still feeling decent, as long as I stay on top of things. Yesterday I hit up some upper body weak points. Lotsa pulling, some incline bench, and shoulder prehab. They're still feeling mobile and pain free today, which is a good sign.
