  2. Yes. I use AP/Recompodrol religiously.

    Did an entire prep low carb then transitioned to moderate carb with the above mentioned (and ALA) and things went great. Added some size and came in leaner 10 weeks later.

  4. Thanks peeps

    I wonder of one couild employ this strategy indefintely with similarly appreciated..dare I say "advantageous" results comparatively.

    Other than my cheat meals, which I get in consistently (sometimes going hog wild on LOL).... any time I have remained on even a low-moderate carb intake consistently? EPIC FAIL

  5. I believe theres a possibility its advantageous. I find the use of GDAs during keto dieting is a must if you want the fastest results. that being said I am looking forward to a future iForce entry into this niche market. currently my favorite is OG slin sane. but there are several good ones like recompadrol and burn 24 to name a couple off the top of my head.

    Worked great on your peak week as well for the pittsburgh, coming in your tightest and leanest yet mike.
    Looks like we will use the same strategy we used for the pittsburgh seeing it worked very well for you with the small changes we made in the last 36 hours when i came down

    Cant wait to see you on stage again.

  14. I run recompadrol almost year round other than when I log something

  15. I need a quick schooling on these type of supps.

    Are any if these geared towards simple carbs or complex only?

    Which in this group are designed to be taken with meals (b/c 30-60 minutes pre-meal is one more thing my old azz has to remember and as such spells FAIL - pain in the butt)?

    Can any of these supps be taken year-round (or do they need to be cycled to remain efficacious)?

    Has it been "proven" yet that these type of supps drive the glucose into muscle cells vs fat cells? I recall a long detailed thread where no conclusion had been reached at the time. If all these supps do is clear the glucose out of the bloodstream quicker (w/ no directed preference to muscle cells and away from fat cells) then what's the point?

    Cycle the product
    Does not matter carb source, the amount of carbs is what matters
    take 15-30 minutes prior.

    Proven;

    No

    Here's the educated guess/possible ways it may be selective

    Reduction of PPARy : key lipogenic receptor
    Reduction of SREB1: also similar to the above. These are the first few steps
    Increases PPARa: uptake into liver and muscle with increases in UCP and fatty acid oxidation
    Reduction of FAS: another way we prevent fat gain and accumulation of lipids in the adipocytes

    So as you see, selective? Not exactly, but more so when you combine the mechanisms above

    No I agree, I try to follow along and read your posts around here
    I like that you try everything out yourself when formulating, EBF is a brand I believe in and use.
    GDA and nutrient-uptake effecting supplements are very interesting, and an EBF specialty.

    Thanks man I take pride in my research and how about things


    Problem is I look at science to much and not necessarily what's "mainstream" and will sell
