Ara works far better on body parts that can get a good "pump" like bi's and tri's and shoulders and legs certainly. I like the stuff and use 2 different Ara products at the moment, one being.
Never had a pump like i do with X-Gels. Agmatine comes close, very close. But ArA is stupid good and the pump lasts for a long time. I've used multiple training sessions at 1g with great results but i prefer 1.5g i think. Would run 2g if i had enough bottles for sure.

-Overall I absolutely love ArA so the use of X-gels was a very welcome addition. Usually I use ArA to maximize body composition changes, but I saw some very solid results in terms of strength on a very non-body composition oriented program. Despite the lack of body composition specific goals I saw some very nice effects on top of great strength gains. The combination of the ArA with Burn24 made it quite easy to manage a plentiful caloric intake while maximizing lean body mass improvement and strength gains. This combo will definitely find its way into some sort of recomp cycle and other volume themed training blocks.
Honestly ArA is on my short list of ingredients that I keep coming back to using and the quality of SNS X-gels definitely lived up to how effective this stuff really is, even with a totally different approach to training than I usually use with it. Already looking forward to getting my hands on some more for future use.

GQ, I think that ArA and Burn 24 will be a go to stack for many.
Burn 24 is right up there with X-Factor and BioForge in my book for being among the utmost in innovative and flat out exceedingly well performing supplements.
Has anyone tried ARA + HMB? would this be a good mix?
I'm not investing in anything. I was hoping for a scientific explanation of why or why not use it in conjunction with ARA.
HMB has some good data behind it, and others dont like it. The safe play, if interested in products like hmb is to get a leucine or branch chain amino acid supplement. Whether you choose hmb or bcaa, both are fine to take alongside X-Factor.
