In a few weeks, my current cycle of 531 will finish and I will probably transition onto either the ‘Boring but big’ or ‘Boring but strong’ workout.
- My primary goal is to get strong (I have set numerical goals for the 4 big lifts). That means add 20-40# in the lower body lifts, 10-20# in the upper body lifts in the next 3 months.
- My secondary goal is to maintain adequate operational fitness for the armed forces (be able to run 1-5miles in 6-35 mins, and hike over rough/hilly terrain for up to 20miles with a heavy load).
- My tertiary goal is to gain some muscle and lose some fat (with a net body weight gain of < 10#
I have heard a lot of great things about Plazma and Indigo 3G, so I thought I would give it a go and buy the Plazma Stack (3xPlasma, 2xI3G, 2xMAG10).
As I am in the UK, and it is quite expensive to acquire this stuff, my principal question is: Would it be better to spread the use of these products (and supplement with a cheaper local alternative*) over 3-4 months? Or maximise the use for 1-2 months and then use a cheaper local alternative*?
Or, would it be better to spend the entire 400$ on I3G? Or just Plazma … or any other combination.
What is the best way to proceed on a budget?
Thanks in advance for any responses
