So yesterday was Day One with the Plazma Super-Stack for me, a workout day.
It took a lot longer to prepare for the workout than I am used to, from first time preparation of a MAG-10 dose an hour before the workout, the Plazma (which, for me, was super-foamy and took about half an hour to settle down to about 3 inches of foam in that 2L Nalgene bottle), etc.
My workout ran from about 7pm-9:15pm. Normally, I try to go for 6-8pm.
Wow, I’m going to need to adjust to those tastes. I think extra water (at least in the Plazma case) is going to be necessary, and definitely more flavoring.
I definitely was able to do more volume than I was used to, and my energy levels remained higher than normal, especially noticeable towards the end.
I have two main questions…
- I didn’t get to bed until 2am, at which point I did a dose of Metabolic Drive (8 oz). I woke up about 5 times between then and 6am, needing to go to the bathroom to void some liquid. After that, I managed to sleep until 9am. I figure that can’t be good for solid rest/recovery.
I’m concerned about tearing down the muscle during the workout and not being able to sleep enough to repair let alone supercompensate. Is there any special trick to manage all that liquid in a PM workout (500 mL MAG-10, 1500+ mL Plazma, 500 mL MAG-10), and still sleep through the night without all the bathroom breaks?
- Is there any special timing meant for off-days for the 3-4 MAG-10 pulses? I’m thinking on waking, in the afternoon maybe, and before dinner. (I know I’ve read advice about that here in the forum before, but I can’t seem to find it now.)
