Plazma + Indigo 3G on a budget


#1

Hi,
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 :slight_smile:

*I can get 5kg of Maltodextrin and Dextrose powder for about 10$ here, and 5kg of whey isolate for about 80$

First, there is honestly is no cheaper alternative, only a few copycat products that don’t have remotely the same effects. But that aside…

The best way for a budget user to use this stack is:

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/indigo-3g"target=“new”>Indigo-3G: 4-6 capsules pre-workout or pre-biggest meal of the day on non-lifting days.

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/plazma"target=“new”>Plazma: 1 serving pre-workout, 1 serving during (weight training workouts only)

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/mag-10"target=“new”>Mag-10: 1 serving about an hour after training.

Hi Chris,
Thanks very much for the fast reply. From your response, I gather that I3G is better taken consistently over a period of time, rather than for a shorter, but more intensive time?

I ask because I remember reading an article (or forum post) where someone suggested that after an initial period of taking I3G, the bit that it ‘fixed’ would essentially remain so. I may be mis-remembering though.

Thanks again!

  1. Yes.

  2. Originally, with the first Indigo-3G formula, you took 12 capsules per day, then moved down to 6. You can still do that, but most people get great results on 6 per day.
