    XF. XFA has Omega 3's in it.

    Do you know how many days a week that was and if it was dosed on an empty stomach or with a meal?

    You can follow the label or dose it all with your preworkout meal. How many times a week depends on your workout frequency. Of course if you workout less than 3x a week then you have a problem

    Yeah, I know all that. But I was wondering exactly how it was used in the study. Thanks though.

    First post on this thread is that said study

  7. i ve tried x factor in the past,4 capsules pre training and i saw nothing..no pumps,no doms no strength increases..and the bottle(200 caps)was a little underdosed too(it had 185 caps).

    Overall, I'd say people haven't noticed much of a difference between the two. I like XF more, however XFA seems like a great choice if you're susceptible to the joint issues.

    No idea. The study isn't published yet. It's just a poster presentation at this point. I'm guessing another 6-12 months before we see a provisional followed by publication.

  10. Id say go with straight ArA unless you get joint issues/pain.

    Gotcha. Thanks.

  12. On week 5 of my stack including ArA and have hit Pr's on bench and squat in back to back weeks/ must say this will be a staple 2/3 times a year! I think I may end up picking up another bottle of X-Gels though because Id like to give 1.5g a shot...

    running 1g currently. Deciding whether or not to bump up to 1.5g after the first bottle is finished.

    If 1g of X-Gels is working well, I'd keep it there.

    Id like to think it is based on results so far, but then again i havent noticed increased DOMS/soreness, and im not sure what else to expect.. hence why i was gonna play around with the dosage

  15. Just noticed this, apparently they dosed 1.5 grams daily so most definitely taken on non-training days as well (which I personally recommend because I noticed better results @ 1 gram daily vs 1.5 grams training days only).

    I would think 1 gram daily would be sufficient though, for smaller guys like myself.

    im taking 1g on training days only.. training 4 days per week, sooooo youve taken it on non training days as well.

    First time I used XF, 1 gram every day first thing in the morning (training days, I train first thing in the morning). 50 days. No GMS, no LCLT, still continued taking fish oils at the time. That run was a better run than my second run @ 1.5 grams preworkout only (I think it was 5 days lift 1 day no lift, could possibly have been 4 days lift 1 day no lift, probably the latter) w/ GMS + LCLT. The first run was a better run than the second run.

    When I run it again in the future, I'm just going to stick with daily dose of 1 gram. No GMS, no LCLT. Maybe grab 3 bottles and run it for 75 days straight.

    You won't get to see a provisional manuscript, most (real) journals don't allow authors to do that.

    Alrighty then, we're just waiting for it to get published then

    thought my post posted before i xd off the screen.. whoops.. anyway, what benefits did you see running it every day for 50 days vs the training days only? im interested especially because my lifting split is only 3-4 days per week. Knowing it take a few weeks to get integrated into the system and see results, my cycle of 50 training days is looking like 12-14 weeks :/

    Definitely more sore, that's for sure. Better strength gains on the first run vs. the second run.

    hmm interesting. Obviously to each their own, but is their any literature discussing ArA on 50 straight days VERSUS 50 training days. As in a study comparing the two results? (not including this study :P )

    Indeed, which may take a while. Journals generally ask for the copyright of the manuscript and that's why they can't post a provisional copy (not to mention no scientist would want people to see their unfinished drafts). A provisional copy wouldn't do any good anyway because it wouldn't have been sent for peer review yet. I assumed with all the hype that the manuscript was being published, not just a poster presentation.

    According to the poster presentation, it was 1.5 grams dosed daily. There's a few rest days typically in these Tampa studies. This was an 8 week study so it's safe to assume that they dosed 1.5 grams daily for the entirety of the 8 weeks. My guess on the workout protocol is that they most likely did a 4 lift days a week lifting schedule plus 1 day wingates as that seems to be the norm for the 8 week studies coming out of that lab.

    What are the chances of ever seeing a clinical study on AnaBeta?

    The study was lifting 3 days per week. Dunno what volume was per session.

    Correct, Llewellyn has confirmed this himself.
