$40USD for a month's supply, what a goldmine! I'm in the wrong job. Eat your 5-6 serves of vegetables, red meat occasionally, and drink coffee/green tea and you'll get everything in there without the unknown shit they put into it.

Lol at those studies. The first study says it significantly increased vit B and antioxidant status but they don't report a magnitude. So what! You could probably get the same effect if they ate 2-3 extra serves of green veg's a day. Second study is used to support claims of increased NO production, blood flow etc. The evidence is that the dose used in the supplement increases the flow-mediated dilatation of the brachial artery (arm) by 2.5% an hour later. Again, what does this mean physiologically? You can probably generate the same effect wrapping up your arm with a bike inner tube, or just eating more green veg's! It sounds like the thing they use is just resveratrol, which is dodgy AF: http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/DSH/resveratrol.html

The last study sounds great if you want to ride your bike for an extra 5 mins but if you're expecting that it will help with "explosive workouts" as they claim then...well, I doubt it will be a game changer. Not to mention that these are all tests paid for by the company itself! This isn't always a bad thing, biotech companies with financial interests in new drugs obviously perform clinical trials etc...but the difference is they are accountable to the FDA/reg authorities/shareholders/patients, and GNC isn't to nearly such a degree. So take the underwhelming results with a grain of salt.

Seriously, spend a bit of time on examine.com and narrow down stuff you might need to take. Be really critical, statistically significant results are not the ultimate measure, look at the magnitude of effect as well. IMO the only recovery supps worth taking are fish oil (if you don't eat tuna), vit D and maybe turmeric with pepper. You could try glucosamine sulfate (not hydrochloride) and see if it helps if you have inflamed knees (I haven't found it does anything for me). For performance, high dose caffeine and creatine are the only ones worth considering (not counting PEDs, some of which certainly work but are too dangerous). Get a good protein source and you'll get all the aa's your body will need, taking excess aa's probably just benefits your toilet when you flush them out. It would be nice to think there's a magic pill you can get from the pharmacist that maxes out your body's physiology for training/recovery but it's probably fantasy.

to shorten acole's post: NO, FOR CHRIST'S SAKE.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
wednesday: fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses
