They're legit, afaik. I've used their research chems. I've only ever seen "odd" ways to pay for kratom and peptides, etc. Part of the game, just like aas. And also, make sure you check your spam/junk folders because a lot of them end up there. With it being this close to the holidays it may be slow though.

Ok i got it.
No scoop. No idea how to measure it.
Only mixed it with water so far.

1 tsp is about 2.5g and is a good place to start to judge how you handle it. White/yellow/green I always dose this way (1 tsp) and as needed. I prefer several smaller doses over one big dose. Red I will usually do 2-4 tsp in evening and maybe a couple of times. Grapefruit juice increases uptake. Greens usually have the most MIT (active ingredient that has the "effect"). It can be constipating, so make sure your fiber intake is sufficient. I'm assuming you're already high protein diet and handling that though.

It hardly has a taste, thank god for that.

I guess I have been doing a tsp. I hardly notice anything thus far.

Oh! Would OJ increase "uptake"? I hate grapefruit, but both are acidic, so....?

Like I said, it's not a "woohoo" or "let's party" kind of feeling. Just levels out the highs and lows. You'll start to see what I mean after a few weeks of using. And you'll be able to tell when you've had some and when you haven't. Again, it's very subtle.

Grapefruit has a mechanism that other things (like OJ) don't. This will explain it better than I can:

https://www.fda.gov/consumers/consumer-updates/grapefruit-juice-and-some-drugs-dont-mix

"Many drugs are broken down (metabolized) with the help of a vital enzyme called CYP3A4 in the small intestine. Grapefruit juice can block the action of intestinal CYP3A4, so instead of being metabolized, more of the drug enters the blood and stays in the body longer. The result: too much drug in your body.

Although scientists have known for several decades that grapefruit juice can cause too much of certain drugs in the body, more recent studies have found that the juice has the opposite effect on a few other drugs."

FYI--that cyp3a4 mechanism has the opposite effect on oral steroids. Less is absorbed.

Switched shit around and its about the only great thing about eccentrics and higher volume. Doing reps and time under tension is all that matters.

This is supposed to be a deload week but i had so much time.
I did a LOT of warmups and each warmup and set had a conventional dead into place.

The shoulder pain is gone but that upper muscle pull is still beautifully present.

Eccentric
Supinated cable row
130lbs? for 4x8 (60+ sec; strapped)

Forgot theracane?!


I did heavy rows instead of eccentric because of my back having TUT and twas risky. Unsure about doing this again.
Did ohs because things havent gotten worse or better so lets get back into things.
The supinated is done on these oddball weight increments at Crunch but this was very hard. Basically failed.
And the kbs? They were embarrassing.
