    XFA, GG, and Thermo questions


    All,

    I'm starting a little cycle of XFA, GG, and Alphamine and running a slight caloric deficit. I'm going to take 4 XFA caps and 2 scoops GG pwo (45 mins pwo) on workout days (6 days a week), but I do have three questions:

    1) How much water should I drink with the GG?
    2) Is it ok to take a thermogenic like Alphamine with the other two?
    3) I'm going to stop taking my flax oil but can I still take my GNC Ripped Multi vitamins?

    I'm going to see how this works in a cutting/lean MM regiment.

    Any and all info would be greatly appreciated

    That sounds good to go to me, as far as the stack. I prefer OG XF, but ArA + GMS + Alphamine should be a great combo. Add some form of carnitine (LCLT, ALCAR, PLCAR) too it pre-workout if you can.

    1) I can't say a specific amount is necessary, but I do better with usually at least 8-12 ounces of water to down the GMS/GG and then plenty as I work out. Plenty for me tends to be at the very least a liter while I lift and that stuff does make me thirsty.
    2) Good to go there.
    3) I don't know the multis ingredients off the top of my head (if there is anything in there other than the typical vits/mins), but even if there is just take the multi at the other end of the day away from your workout.

    You should be fine keeping the multi and dropping the flax. Alphamine is also fine to stack with XFA and regarding Glycergrow just be sure to drink plenty of water and stay well hydrated.

    Should make for a killer recomp/leaning out stack!

    That would likely be caused by the thermogenic, I have heard some who sweat more with XFA but its usually not a night sweat type situation. I havent used Alphamine, but some fat burners have given me night sweats in the past if dosed relatively close to bed time.

    Actually, the Alphamine I ordered hasn't reached me yet so it has to be from the other two. But it's not as bad as I had a few years ago on test. Starting to feel some thickness already from the two this early.

    Interesting feedback, not surprised your metabolism is super ramped up (night sweats) with you training twice a day!

    On a side note, the XFA taste and smells like a rotting fish.

    They aren't necessary, but I often find them beneficial. Depends on your situation and certain factors, but I often use some sort of BCAA/EAA products.

    If you have long periods of time between meals ir train fasted I would say they are definitely worth consideration.

    X2, bcaa can be a smart investment. However, if your eating frequently and very high protein, bcaa might not be necessary.

    I really like them for long training sessions.

    Well, here's my typical day:
    Get up and take 2 scoops of Alphamine then do an Insanity workout (usually the Max ones) on an empty stomach. Then protein shake (about 50g protein) with a banana afterward. I drink water all day. I'll have a protein bar (a gluten free one that's around 200 calories) a little while after then I'll usually have a small meal (either pork chops, tilapia, grilled chicken, etc. with veggies and a carb - sweet potato topped with Greek yogurt, brown rice, maybe some figs, etc.). Another protein shake later - always mixed with water except at night I use milk for the casein before I pass out. Before my evening lift I'll have another bar and maybe a grapefruit. (Take my XFA and GG here and 1 more scoop of Alphamine). Lift then another protein shake. About an hour or so later a good dinner with some carbs but moreso like a spinach salad with ground turkey breast or something.

    With that being said maybe I need the BCAA's.

    Any advice would be appreciated. As I've mentioned I'm recomping and need to drop excess fat. I already have a lot of muscle mass (I'm 6' and 255 lbs - not carrying that much fat, I just have a large frame).

    And I should add my goal is 220 lbs at 10% by June 1. 220/10% is the lowest I've gotten in the past (albeit I had some help from my good friends primo and winny). I also have some clen to use closer to summer.

    With two workouts a day and such a clean diet, bcaa may be a good supplement to look into for maximizing recovery.

    Update: through 3 weeks size is up, fat levels are dropping but the biggest difference is a massive increase in strength. My bench last week is over 300 lbs and my military press (barbell) is over 200 lbs. I've never put up that much weight training naturally.
    I've also added BCAA's for my double days. Shifting gears for the next two months (and next 4-5 weeks of the XFA use) to focus on fat burn: doing the full two months of insanity and going from 6 days a week lifting (one body part a week splits) to 3-4 days a week and regrouping into more compound and circuit type lifts (i.e. Upper back and chest, shoulders and arms, legs and lower back and a specific core day).
    DOMS aren't too bad but my shoulders and elbows are starting to hurt some. This is why I went with the XFA over the XF...wanted to the joint help...but still soreness.
    I'll do a full report when I'm done with pics and a more detailed log of the entire cycle.
