After taking a long break from lifting and using supplements, I’m back at it and want a soft reintroduction to this old hobby. My strategy is to use Ashwaghanda as an adaptogen as I acclimate back to this way of living- eat, lift, work, sleep, etc.

I was off and away competing in a different sport and continued to use a post workout shake, something I thoroughly felt made a difference. The sport I was competing in emphasized more lower body strength, lots of sprints, crouching, changing levels. I actually think I developed better legs in both looks and performance while I was away, vs lifting alone.

I’m contemplating taking a long break from said sport. I really strained my shoulder in the summer ( at an event ) as I was making my comeback to the gym, I’ve been planning on making this adjustment regardless though. The slight injury just delayed things. Eight weeks later I’m able to start light upper body workouts and it feels great. This fall and winter I will lay the foundation , building myself a stronger and healthier body, and come spring I may decide to keep competing. Bu overall I will be lifting again from now on.

Thanks and it’s good to be back.

I’m looking into them now. Is this sale directly from Apex Alchemy’s website? Any links to reviews? Thank you btw.

Looks good so far. I haven’t read anything about negative side effects.

the only complaint we have seen was about the smell of the carrier.. once dried it dissipates quickly so for most its non issue. ladies seem to like it.

As for ashwaghanda. Nootropics Depot has the new patented Ashwaghanda in stock called Shoden, and supposed to get great for a test boost.

I don’t really like it as an “adaptogen”. It makes me awake when I want to sleep and sleepy when I want to be alert.

Ooo nice. If anyone has the right way to use Ash, I’d love to hear it. I tried googling it and couldn’t find anything concrete. Hence partly why I’m back here.

Just ordered two bottles each of Ursa Major and Epichaos. Hopefully they’re enough to give it a proper run.

I’m starting to believe this is the result of when those with lowish cortisol use it like myself.

Find which extract works for you for your purpose. Ksm66 5% is the main extract in sport supps. Senorsil 10% is used more for it's somewhat sedating effects. Shoden 35% is the newest extract and should be more relaxing from what I've heard... Looking to try shoden but sensoril and ksm is like 10 bucks on Amazon.....
