opinions on NHA Stack?
i am currently at 5'10'' 156lbs. i obviously want to gain a lot more weight but stay defined. my lifestyle is SUPER active with school work and lots of sports.
i was wondering what my outcomes should be if i decide to take
diet will be somewhere around 4000+ clean calories (although i will be shooting for 5000+
i will also be training heavy 4-6 reps 2 excersizes per muscle. weight train 4 times a week, either swim or some other cardio for about 25 min 2 days a week and rest one. abs will be worked out every other day and calves as well (1 day abs, 1 day calves etc.)
wondering what type of results i can expect from the NHA Stack, and is the lean extreme necessary. or should i just not use it.

OK, here's my opinion. You don't need it. You need to use the food and strength stack. With that clean diet you purpose, that should take care of the staying lean part. Now to really best use those calories, you should concentrate on getting strong. I'd suggest something in the realm of an upper/lower split or total body workouts, this will allow you to hit each muscle frequently and intensely. Start off with a movement at 10x3 so you can go heavy and then from there just do some accessory work in varying rep ranges. If you concentrate on your strength and eat big and clean you will achieve the goals you want and save yourself some money.

I had some slight strength gains and I felt a little more irritated. I don't think it is worth the money though. Spend it on more food

well i have been eating that diet for some time now. i focus solely on strength when i train. ive been training for about 2 years. and i got stronger and gained weight (up to this point) im at a plateau that ive been at for a couple of mo nths now. and ive switched up workouts and everything. im just wondering if this stack is worth the money as an added health. right now the only supps im taking is cell tech. as soon as im done with that i will be done with creatine.Originally Posted by zarro84

So give an example of your typical strength program. Also what's your 1 rm's in the deadlift, back squat and bench?

rebound/lean extreme are great! I need 1 1/2 to 2 times the dose of activite for me to notice additional benefits. That makes it expensive. I'd suggest picking up some bulkand from nutraplanet.com. This stack is great for strength, cheap, and doesn't manipulate hormones.

Dead Lifts- 250lbs.
Leg Press- 810lbs.
Skull Crushers- 110lbs.
Cable Row- 195lbs.
Freeweight Military Press- 135lbs.
Upright Row- 100lbs
EZ Barbell Curl- 90lbs.

A good start. I think focusing on strength would be your best option. I'd ditch the smith machine squats and the leg press in favor of more barbell squating varations(front, back, zercher etc.) and drop the upright rows because that movement causes internal rotation of the humerus and no one needs any more of that than they already get from pressing. Also, try doing some chin up's and inverted rows. Here's my suggestion for a good strength based program that will allow you to focus on hypertrophy as well.
