    HBull XGels Log


    Hey Guys
    I am starting this log on XGels. I plan on bulking on it. I will take 4 tabs a day, preworkout along with LCarn. I will only be taking it on workout days; every other day.

    My stats are currently:

    - 5'8''
    -140 lbs
    -3200 cals give or take (60+/- carbs, 20 protein, 20 fats)
    - Running AllPros Beginner Routine
    - Current Maxes:
    Squat: 155x5
    Bench: 140x5
    Rows: 135x4
    Overhead Press: 85x6
    Curls: 70x5
    CloseGrip: 115x6-7

    Also using Creatine (3 gms a day) and LCarn
    I hope this product can help me gain some muscle, as many have noted. I have heard great things and hope SNS comes through for me like they have for others.
    I will post before pics tomorrow as my computer is lagging a little ATM.
    Thanks, and hope you follow me on this quest!

    GMS = Glycerol Monostearate.

    Many have ran ArA solo and with GMS and notice quite a difference if they don't run GMS. Main reason for running along side ArA is, GMS helps emulsify ArA.

    Today's workout was alright. Didn't get enough sleep, but got all my reps in, which is what really counts. XGels gave a nice pump also, which I like a lot LCarn also seems to be energizing me. Can't wait till this XGels really start kicking in. Only problem so far is a bit of an aftertaste. Anyone experience this with XGels? Thanks!

    Did an arm day today. Also included some trap and ab work. It was a good day and the pump from the XGels is pretty evident! Looking good so far! Also, upping calories to 3400 on workout days and 3150 on off days

    GMS can help, I always just take ALCAR with my X Gels and it works fine. Great thing about ArA is it works from dose 1. And after a run you'll realize your body comp has had some nice change if diet and training is on point. But lawd, THE PUMPS. I wouldn't lower your non training day nutrition as you need those days for recovery. You grow after your workout and you're really only taking away nutrients that the body can use to build muscle. Just something to think about.

    I don't feel any DOMS, could it be because I take it everyother day? Also, is dark chocolate a safe fat to eat while on XGels? I know fish/fishoil isn't because of Omega 3s but are Omega 6s okay? Thanks

    DOMS aren't an indicator it's working. Some people get crazy DOMS and others hardly get any. DOMS will kick in around week 2ish.

    Dark chocolate is fine.

    Ok. Does the pump increase too? Thanks for your replies. Just 1 more question: is it beneficial to increase omega6 while using ArA? Or is it worst?

    Pump should increase along the way.

    No need to increase omega6 intake either.

    Also wondering if anyone has ever done 2 days and if so, what was the volume/rep scheme. I want to do full body in the morning and choose a muscle to work at night.

    For example: Day 1: Do my full body (8-12 reps) but go heavier on chest/back (5 reps), then come back later and do lighter weight (8-12 reps)
    Day 2 Rest
    Day 3: Do same thing but with legs/shoulders

    Good idea? It seems to me like this would be good for strength and size. I would also get a lot of food in before going back

    I don't find that idea to be good at all, unless you're on high doses of anabolics and even then, I think it will ultimately produce worse results than if you had stayed with a traditional split.

    Do you mean a full body or a PPL split?

    I'm responding to this: For example: Day 1: Do my full body (8-12 reps) but go heavier on chest/back (5 reps), then come back later and do lighter weight (8-12 reps)

    That is not a good idea for your situation.

    The only time I would recommend 2-a-days is if it's cardio one session and then lifting for the second session. I don't even find going 2x a day worthwhile if a user is on massive amounts of anabolics.

    Today was awesome. PRed at 155 on bench (weighing 142). I was a little humbled seeing people lifting 315 for reps though, haha! I still don't feel DOMS, but feel a tiny bit of knee pain still.

    Yesterday was good. Knee pain is still there, but its bearable. PRed on squats at 160x6! Only 60lbs from by 225 goal. Also, PRed at 90x5 on OverHead Press. Thesse XGels are working better than I thought . I also increased cals by 250 a day. Weighing in at 142.

    Is it okay to supplement XGELS with lamb liver for added ArA? I've read that 3 oz had like 1.6 grams. If it's Ok, should I do so pre or post workout?

    I really don't know anything about lamb liver, but if you want to up the dose of ArA that's up to you. A higher dose may produce more benefit, but most likely will also come with more DOMS.
