    ArA Stack help and suggestions


    I've been looking into ArA lately and it seems like the most worthwhile addition to my stack.

    2 Bottles X-factor or X-gels @ 4 caps / workout
    1.5 g ALCAR SNS
    Unsure of whether to add in GMS for my first run or other preworkout
    Amino IV pre/intra
    Burn 24?
    Alphamine?
    Super Cissus later on in the day
    Orange Triad and Oximega later in the day
    ____________________

    Am I missing anything in the stack? Or any issues with them?

    I also plan on incorporating Demiurge occasionally for school work along side Focus XT

    GMS isn't necessary but worth it. If it's going to make ArA more effective, Id grab it.

    Just be sure to get the Cissus and Oximega 4+ hours away from ArA.

    This. But your stack looks fairly comprehensive.

    The recommended dosages for the other stuff that helps ArA are 6g GMS and 2g ALCAR. Orange Triad/Oximega/Cissus are all anti-inflammatories which should be taken at least 4 hours away from your ArA.

    Even without GMS I think your ArA will still be effective. I'm logging it right now and running nowhere near the recommended amount of GMS (but running ALCAR) and I'm noticing it's effects anyway.

    I'd definitely grab some GMS to round that out. Looks solid to me though. I am assuming this is more in the realm of a cut with the possible additions of Burn24 and Alphamine?

    I think that some have dosed the GMS as low as 3g as well.

    Get the GMS and run it 6g. It's incredibly cheap, lasts forever, is synergistic with ArA and will make you look jacked while you're working out (srs). Plus it's cool to look at when it hits water.

    Exactly, the stack would me more geared towards a cut / recomp

    I'm assuming that the SS/AS Micronized GMS would be best?

    Most people seem to use that or glycergrow. Both will work.

    Glycergrow or AS works. AS may mix slightly better.

    Good advice here on taking the anti-inflammatories 4 hours apart of the ArA.

    I have only used GycerGrow but it works awesome. Doesn't mix well at all so I have to parachute it.

    Adding in Alphamine and Burn24 would be solid additions as well with ArA.

    Since most people avoid anti-inflammatories 4 hours peri-workout, it shouldn't be an issue anyways.

    My favorite stackers:

    BioForge
    Peak Beta+ for LCLT (and of course the COP)
    High Volume or Glycergrow for GMS

    Just a heads up, NP currently has X-Factor for under $30 and XFA for under $32 !!

    Very true. If I have a headache the last thing I'm going to do is exercise and pump blood to my head. Also, if someone has a nagging injury then they probably aren't a good candidate for ArA supplementation.

    Yep the xfactor deal was what prompted me to try it.

    I'll finalize my order when I get back home from an overnight game, I'll post my order basket in about a day

    Thanks for the help

    Damn, they ran out of AS GMS, so I'm now looking into High Volume. Can anyone give me an idea of the taste? I'm quite picky with flavoring, so any comments on specifically the Pink Lemondade?

    Oh, one more question about Alphamine

    I didn't see anything that seemed hormonal or any compounds that younger lifters should steer away from. How accurate is my assumption about alphamine and for the entire stack?

    Hi all . I had a question a bout this subject if someone wouldn't mind answering for me.
    If I was using Hemavol for example as my GMS do I just add my LCLT to the PWO?

    You would need a few extra grams of GMS if you wanted the full dose. And yes, add a Carnitine salt as well (LCLT, ALCAR, PLCAR).

    Kbayne has you covered. Agreed with all his posts. I personally use a little less GMS.

    This. I'm more of a fan of AS due to it being slightly easier to mix.
