    Muscle builder suggestions?


    I'm looking for a supplement that enhances some strength/size. I'm not looking for prohormones yet, but I understand I wouldn't see these kind of results. I'm 5'10 175 pounds. thanks!

    Arachidonic acid in the form of X-Gels/X-Factor is probably your best bet

    X-factor was the first supplement, back when i was 17/18 I ever felt, or saw results. I remember benching 185 for reps, and hitting 225 for reps.. my training partner was FREAKIN PISSED! lmao. I ran 4 xfactor for 50 days I think.. I went through 4 bottles.. it was years and years ago, but i no i had 4 bottles.

    that ArA is some good stuff, I even started adding in heavy sets to my cutting training (which I normally don't do). about halfway through the 8 weeks now, I did also add in TTA/RK around the same time, and was on 7/11 and ABE/SSane already....but this combo is working fantastic.

    so what if I only ran one bottle? not worth it?

    get at least 2 bottles, so you can run it at 4 per day on WO days only (none on non-WO days) for ~8 weeks. that is 16 caps per week for most people. This is what mr. cooper suggested.

    nutraplanet, but they were recently out of stock. too many people talking about it on here and it sold out they may have it back in stock, or may have "X factor advanced" in stock. they are 100 count bottles.

    they added omega-3 oil to the formula, so I'm not sure if they are 250mg per cap of ArA like the OG XF or not. also added some other ingredients as well. You would assume there is 250mg per cap though like the original. not sure what purpose the omega-3 serves. other than being a good supplement itself.

    X-factor Advanced is vastly inferior to X-Factor original.

    Another vote for ArA here. I used X-Gels pwo for 5 weeks and loved it. I have never seen better strength increases or muscle fullness than I did in those 5 weeks.

    Might as well jump in on the ArA suggestion train! Stuff has really gained popularity again recently, with good reasoning.

    I'd also look into Anabeta. ArA and Anabeta are the top two for my go to products above the typical stuff.

    Dewey and Cooper gave me great advice about 3 weeks to a month ago on ARA..Had to pick up a few things first,but when i get $50.00-$100.00 to spare,i will pick up 1 or 2 - 100 ct bottles.

    They say u need 50 days,but i was told just 100 pills is fine,4 pre workout..Ofcourse a company is looking to make money.So i guess it will be trial and error in my case whwther 25 days is good enough or not,50 days does sound good ..Ill wait til winter,to try it,when i up my calories..

    The local BB supp store near me has the original XFactor Ara...Saw it yesterday.

    I second Ara is a good supplement look into Xgels. But don't sleep on Anabeta Elite as a good muscle builder.

    yeah I think ArA + ABE (or OG AB) + GDA would be great for adding size since that is what the OP wants.

    Glucose Disposal Agent......like Slinsane or recompadrol etc.....they shuttle carbs toward glycogen storage/muscle building instead of fat storage.

    that supplement is called FOOD thats keeping it all natural no anabolics..but from what im hearing a lot,ARA seems to be best when on a bulking cycle,which i plan on using come winter....

    here is the best thing you can use:
    Want to build mass..this is my opinion.

    Food
    -REDMEAT
    -CARBS
    -PEANUT BUTTER ( all natural ofcourse )
    -broccoli (religoiously) ( read into it and the role it plays in body building,you wont be dissapointed.Its a fiber and a carb and contains I3C which is known to keep estro low and in check)

    Supplements
    -Creatine

    yeah for real. don't forget to have your diet in check, make sure you're getting enough calories and protein per day or all the supplements won't do jack for you. Food.....the ultimate anabolic

    DAA/AI of your choice (Erase is what I used in my 2 runs) and Anabeta (if bulking I recomend the OG, it increases my appetite more than the Elite). I added weight to the bar and my body faster than ever in my life the first time I used this stack and I am about 5 weeks into my second run.

    you just gotta flavor it up, salt and pepper is the best way...and other seasonings....no calories, just the sodium if you use a LOT of salt/seasoning ....I got some low cal ranch dressing here for the broccoli, but I am cutting so its salt and pepper right now lol.

    Another good way to spice up veggies is a little olive oil and some Adobo. Quick and easy. Mix in some steamed rice with the veggies if you want some carbs.

    I am guilty of this too....it only prolongs the cut since you don't lose as much as you should and you need to go longer. So I've been clamping down on the small stuff lately...sauces, dressings, eating a handful of lifesaver gummies as if its insignificant ....

    Got to 8.3% (bodpod) with cold cuts, 80/20 beef, and yogurt as my main protein/fat sources, kids cereal as my main carb source, and PB as my main fat source. There's no need to restrict yourself. I ate out plenty of times, but the key is simply compensating by reducing calories over the following 24 hours.
