My experience with animal stak, when I first started thinking about using stak I was cutting, not for a contest or anything but more for peace of mind. I read that people had really good results using stak for cutting when its usually used for bulking. Im 79kg 172cm 10% bf. My staple supps are animal pak, glucosimine, zma(removed while on stak) and cod liver oil. Any other supps I take are purely for trial runs. I had been cutting for about 2 months or so making really good progress, I moved all my carbs to 1600-2000 time slot and doing 30 min spin bike every other day (every other day from that is gym day). When I started using animal stak I was hoping that I could continue to lose bf at a reasonable rate and (I know this is impossible) add some muscle at the same time. So first thing I noticed was about 4 days into using stak I had a pretty crazy strength gain, it was a back day and I was doing rows and I just seemed to be able to bang out way more on what is usually my final weight. I try not to over do the weight so in my routines I just did a an extra set on heavy. After the initial strength gain, not much more happened until that last couple of days of the 21 day cycle, where I was just looking solid, very happy with my appearance. The directions state that you should have a 7 day break, I decided to come off all my supps. Partly because science I guess, and I just felt that my body needed it. I went back on the stak 8 days later as thats when it got delivered. Over the week I was off all my supps I held all my size and strength. After going back on stak for the 2nd cycle not much happened until the 6th day or so, I felt that I had actually lost strength and gained a lot of mass, I pretty much weigh the same but I feel like I look awesome and full. So more on how I feel that ive lost strength, it was on a chest day where I was just warming up and 2 working sets into my routine I felt ruined! I had to really back off the weight, when I was using moderate weight it was fine, I was still able to do 20 or so body weight wide grip pull ups or 70 push ups but anything more than 50kg on the bar felt more like 100kg. It was almost as if I was getting a pump way too early on/ too strong. I felt strict of movement. Benefits though, I do feel an increased sense of mind to muscle connection. My routines since losing a bit of strength have been great though, im just getting a better squeeze on all my lifts. And with a crazy pump, I dont take any kind of pre workout or no booster. I am very happy with how my sessions are going and I will continue to use this product here and there. I hope this helps anyone looking to try stak. Or to see how it may have effected someone else if you have tried it.
Please consult your physician first (especially if you have a medical condition). Do not use if you are pregnant/lactating or under the age of 18. Remember that an adequate state of hydration must be maintained when using this product. Have at least 8 - 12 large glasses of water per day. Do not exceed the recommended daily intake. Taking more than the recommended dose will not improve results and may cause adverse reactions. For best results an appropriate weight gain eating plan and training programme should be followed. High intake of free-form amino acids may initially cause gastric discomfort in sensitive individuals - if this prolongs, reduce dosage or discontinue. Nutritional supplements should not replace a balanced, varied diet. Tolerance to lactose is variable - please seek advice as to the role of lactase in the diet.
You are taking Mutant Whey as advised – post-training to aid recovery and renew muscle mass. Within thirty minutes after your training session is best. Please note: you can take whey protein at any time during the day that poses a nutritional gap, . mid-morning or mid-afternoon. You can also consume whey as part of breakfast, so one to three servings is recommendable. BCAAs can be taken before, during and after training, to minimise muscle catabolism, so taking BCAA as an intra-workout product is ideal. There are a number of ways to take creatine, according to your individual routine/goals. Generally, the recommended method is to take 3g prior to exercise, and another 3g post exercise, so this is how you would take Creakong. It is usually not necessary (or advisable) to use more than one creatine product at a time (such as Cre-X12, which is a carb. powder with added creatine and electrolytes). Medi Evil Excalibur is a fat-burning product which also functions as a pre-workout formula; it should not be used in conjunction with any other stimulant-based product, . Stimutant, and should be taken in accordance with its specified guidelines: “For best results, take one to two capsules in the morning one hour before food every day for six days. Break for one day and then repeat the process. This capsule may be large for some people, but can be consumed by separating the shell and pouring the contents into a small amount of water.” I hope the above information assists in answering your question.
