Train more often with x-factor/ara acid?
Just picked up some, L-Car, and GMS. While reading up on it people mentioned having more DOMS but also recovering quicker from workouts.
Any thoughts on training more often while taking it (also 30g bcaas postworkout)? Currently doing DC training and was sticking with every other day as mentioned on the blog. Thinking about upping it to 2 days on 1 day off since it's a split with legs, biceps, and forearms one day, the rest of the body the next day. Thoughts?

I would not increase training frequency, but increase weight lifted and intensity as the ARA allows you. Take a serving of BCAA's with your L-Car and GMS pre-workout and take another intra-workout. Considering what you listed, eat solid food post workout. Starting with 4, take 4-8 caps of the ARA pre-workout.

I'm training a full body program as advocated by Børge Fâgerli, would X-factor be productive or counterproductive?
I'm doing a full body routine 5-7 days a week ala this:

That said, dont go out and overtrain or feel like you have an excuse to over train just bc you are supplementing with X-Factor/additional ArA.
Also great news that the $30 for XF $32 for XFA deal is still valid at NP!

What is the point of purposely including something which has an opposite of the desired effect of the original product?

ArA in itself is tricky sometimes when it can improve body composition, yet you must be wary of joint issues which could hamper training. Finding the sweet spot in dose vs sides is key. However, i've not even had joint issues at 2g daily when using my daily cissus. Spaced appropriately apart.

Would it be of any benefit to increase overall volume during workouts? Also, how much of a negative impact would there be from increasing workout frequency, given I don't have the choice to increase workout frequency due to the powers that be.

I'm asking what negative impact (if any) would be realized from increased train ing frequency? People are against it but gave no reason why.

Only thing is, is that volume must decrease somewhat to compensate.
It will not cause overtraining (unless you have dumb programming).

I will try XF with this program soon, just have to get rid of the cold I have!
In this article, you will learn more about:
Using myo-reps to reactivate mechanisms for muscle growth
Using higher training frequency to make better progress
Using both light and heavy days in your program
"Train more often
In my opinion, frequency is the most underrated training variable. Most lifters are all too eager to increase volume by doing more sets and more exercises. Honestly, do you really believe that you need four different biceps exercises to get bigger arms? I think there isn’t anything that stagnates progress more or faster than training volume, especially combined with excessive failure training and intensity techniques such as forced reps and super/triple/giant sets.
There exists a certain threshold of work that you have to exceed in order to stimulate an adaptation (i.e. strength and muscle growth). This threshold increases with training age and experience. However, a common misconception is that if you double the training volume, you also double the stimulus. Sorry, but if it were that easy, we would all be massive just from copying the high volume routines of Arnold or Ronnie. Anyone who idolized Arnold back in the 80s or Ronnie back in the late 90s knows for a fact that this line of logic didn’t turn out as well as we hoped."
