I dont know if this has been mentioned anywhere yet, but I was just wondering if this was supposed to be cycled or anything? I just ordered it so I cant wait for it to get here, but I was just curious on wether or not to cycle it...
Thanks Chris! The last time I was this excited about a supplement was when I first began lifting and was still doing a 2 and a half hour arm day, scared of squats, and didnt even know what a deadlift was. Then I found WBB and burned down the local GNC for ripping me off our of all that money!!!
usually what I do (I know you didn't ask me) is do a loading phase every 6 - 8 weeks.
others will do on for 8 weeks, off for 3, load, then back to maintance for another 7 weks
Still some just to maintance phase every day for quite an extended amount of time
The overwhelming consensus on this board, which I agree with, is that there's no point to cycling creatine. Just take 5 grams a day.
Think of your body being a tub of water that you want to keep full. Without supplementation, water is pouring into the tub at a rate such that it's about half full before the drainage is equal to the water being poured in. Supplementation is merely turning up the water. If you overdo it, no big deal, as the water just goes over the edge. That was a crappy metaphor but I'm not deleting it.
But regarding the other 2 ingredients (obviously you wouldnt cycle dextrose) you do still need to cycle those correct?

What I'm interested in reading is research supporting your assertion that the non-gear variety should be cycled. For example, I have long been under the impression that creatine need not be cycled. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on why you feel it should, particularly since your company sells it.
Tried a couple of things this weekend that worked.
1. Mixed my Results in with my vanilla Maximus - fine.
2. Mixed my Results with OJ - also fine.
Taste should not matter, but I know from experience, with me, if the taste is awful, I just won't use it. Seems dumb, but I know it's true for me.
I too am interested in others "results" AFTER two or more months of use.
Does it really matter that much if I take results in the morning before work on non-training days as opposed to after work? I ask because results doesn't sit well for me that early.
Non lifting days - I take at 8am
Lifting days - 6pm
Ive got the same ? as Cirino. Chris, is there any reason we shouldnt drink this stuff in the afternoon? After oatmeal and opticen in a 30 minute period in the morning I really would rather avoid results b/c of the flavor and the tingling i get. Also not to mention having to take a leak every 15 minuts for the next 2 hours.
edit: this is on non-training days of course.

I think this would fall under the research category of "common sense". IMnevertobeHO, common sense dictates that a varied diet is healthier and that includes both foods and supplements. I realize that most would think I'm extreme, but I don't think that daily ingestion of 1000%+ of established RDAs is probably necessary or even desirable. JMO.
A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

Built, you may be confusing the two different reasons for cycling. One reason (mostly for gear) is that your body becomes too dependant on it. You need to cycle off so that you can restart your bodys natural production of testosterone
The other reason to cycle (like for results, ETS and creatine) is that your body just becomes accostomed to it, like the product has the potential to lose its effect, not that your body needs it
again, where is the research behind that?
Your body produces its own creatine, or how else did you think you lifted period? Glycolosis is far to slow to get it all done for us, which is why Creatine is so valuable to athletes and lifters alike, for our explosive movements. Does supplimentation with Creatine lower our bodies production of it? Show me proof that it does not and I'll believe it. Until then, like any substance provided exogenously, which is already produced in the body, I'll continue to cycle it.

Hey I have a question does the dextrose give you a sort of caffeine like upper feeling not nearly as strong but similar. I only ask because lately I feel a lot more tired towards the end of the day then I'm used too. This used to happen to me when I would drink coffee which is the main reason I quit. Basically I want to know if dextrose gives you a high when you drink it but then you come down later on?
