    You added that much to your dl in briefs??

    Feels like tendinitis in the elbows. Shoulders are hurting too. It all started around the time the X-Gels would have been through my system. I'm gonna give it a couple of days off the ArA and see if they get better.

    If you are saturated it would take a week or so before they would go away after cessation of use, but either way sad to hear that popped up.

    What say you Spaniard It can be if you have pre-existing injuries. But dose away from the injuries, ie dont dose it before a bench workout if you have a bad elbow, and take joint supplements 6hrs+ away from the ARA and you'll most likely be good. I'm dosing ARA on my lower days, bum elbow, at 1.5-2g, and taking Cissus XT way later in the day. Feeling fine.

    What GOOD are the x gels supposed to do. I looked them up and it said you won't gain as much muscle, need more calories, and inflammatory on the label. I was confused lol. Thanks guys.

    That inflammation plays a large role in anabolic response to exercise. The idea is to increase that response by saturating the muscles with ARA, thus increasing the response. It is meant to be acute inflammation. Unfortunately it seems that it can cause flare ups in people with chronic inflammation. It it largely individual on the negative response. People with chronic inflammation diseases like IBS should not even try it. For many of us it is a roll of the dice. Interesting stuff none the less.

    It's definetly a solid supplement. I noticed positive effects from it in just over a week (pumps/vascularity). My shoulder has been acting up off and on for a while though, so for me personally, it's not a good time for this supplement.

    I'm not saying it's the Xgels for sure though. I'll give it some time to see if the issue subsides or not.

    Groin wasnt too bad, but my hips are feeling pretty tight. I'm gonna hit up some extra mobility work tomorrow. Will give them another shot in the suit next week. Briefs-wise, they aren't doing too much for me conventional.

    I've also read that the IT bands need attention too when sumo DL'ing.

    Definitely step up the hip flexor health routine when adding in sumo pulls. The pain will come on quick. It's easy to see where those big squats come from with those beefy tenderloins, dude.
