    Hemavol only 4 times a week?


    Just jumped on Hemavol to get away from stims and noticed it saying not to use more than 4x/week. I'm in the Gym usually every day. thoughts for a non stim solution for those other days?

    I use HemaVol five days a week. Are you lifting everyday you're in the gym?

    I'm using caffeine free NO xplode and I'm not a fan of BSN but got a chance to try it and it's actually pretty legit. Get great pumps from it and good focus too.

    UltraReps by AX is another good option as well. Great focus and good pump. I honestly stacked Hemavol with UltraReps for a week and had the best pumps of my life.

    When I ran hemavol back in the day (2 years ago)I took it 3-4 days a week and 2 hours preworkout. If you workout first thing in the morning, take 5 before bed and 5 preworkout.

    30 minutes before my workout I used my normal preworkout which at the time was NO shotgun.


    Today, and for the last 6+months I have been making my own stacks with individual ingredients.

    Here are some ingredients I would recommend in a non-stim preworkout:
    B complex (esp. B12, B5, and B3)
    BCAA - I prefer the new ratio of 8:1 leucine formula
    Beta alanine
    LCLT, ALCAR, or PLCAR
    Creatine

    I love my hemavol and ultima and I've taken both more then 4 days a week.

    I was told about this non-stim product called Anabolic Ignite. It's got an very interesting profile to it. I ordered some last night. Going to give it a go as well.

    idk about that due to the amount of citruline you would be taking 2500 + 2350 + 1175 =6025 mg is kinda overkill.

    ^^^^

    you can even use hemavol on off days if you want. you can take a scoop about 15 minutes before a carb meal, and reap some of the nutrient partitioning effects of agmatine plus, the continual dose of cit-mal, you should see a real big improvement with endurance/recovery

    I use Hemavol 4x per week as suggested, since I only work out 4x per week. I use Ultima mixed with some BCAA's as an intra workout drink, which works wonders for me. Both are pricey, but then again, with these two products you do actually get what you pay for. Those types of supplements are few and far between I think.

    I am so happy to have stumled upon Hemavol and Ultima after trying so much crap over the years. I just hope they don't go and change the formula's like so many companies seem to do.

    Slightly off topic but what BCAA'S are the best bang for the Buck to stack with Hemavol?

    2 options- Super Cheap route = Bulk unflavored BCAA's - basically riding on the Hemavol flavoring

    flavored BCAA"s-
    I like RecoverPro which is pretty darn cheap, or you can snag some Xtend 1.0 pretty cheap as well online on sale still.

    1 serving is 5 tablets. I know you're upset with hemavol because it didn't give you stim like energy. However, like Vaughn said in your other thread Hemavol is a pump/ endurance product.

    I use 1-2 servings on all upper body days and 1 serving on leg day. I train each body part once a week and a tub lasts me roughly 20 workouts give or take

    i use it for every workout except quads, so thats 5 days a week, i use a HEAPING scoop and it lasts me about 1month, so that is 20-25 workouts

    you cant get eh dosing and formula anywhere else, the price just reflects quality and precision formulation

    anabolic ignite is the ****! Like for realz.


    I just got hemavol and I'm going to use it 5 days a week. I don't think it'll cause any harm....they are people out there that do cocaine everyday and they live so this shouldn't be an issue.

    Honestly. If I didn't love stims I could just do bcaa/hemavol for the rest of my life and never have issues with sleep/energy/pumps/etc. I am heavily considering it.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    you could always just take agmatine on your days off and then keep with hemavol on your wo days, making it a little cheaper and still getting the health benefits of agmatine.

    I like RecoverPro which is pretty darn cheap, or you can snag some Xtend 1.0 pretty cheap as well online on sale still.
    recoverpro is pretty good and cheap. red raspberry flavor is much better then the lemon though.

    Anabolic Ignite is a great little pre to stack with stuff. I did do Hemavol, Anabolic Ignite, Ultima at once one time and to tell me that was a non-stim stack I was shocked with the power and energy I had at the gym.
