Hi I started 5 days ago, I have some quick questions and below is my stuff i’ll post pictures when i hit the two week mark.
Question 1: The Hot-Rox is so hard on my body but i prefer to work out in the morning and if i take it after midday i won’t sleep because i’m super sensitive to stimulants. People keep saying take with food or on a full stomach (i haven’t yet) but what can i eat or take it with so i don’t ruin the V-Diet?
Question 2: I get shin splints if i’m not having alot of calcium can i use calcium supplements and if so when is the best time of the day to take them because their uptake is better with food.
Question 3: Why decline neutral grip dumbell press? (i like it because its different i almost never do decline) but what is this hitting? and should i be tucking my elbow when i press or is it a neutral grip with chicken wings?
Thanks for the speedy responses guys.

Pre-day: Ate my 3 favorite foods so I wouldnâ??t crave them
Day 1: This stuff tastes so shit compared to gold standard. Surge tastes like chemicals. I hope my taste buds acclimatize. Hot-Rox took 1 tablet 30 mins before workout (felt like I was on cocaine during my workout I have never sweated like that before, but man I worked out at 100% maximum)
Day 2: Hot-Rod felt bit better, everything still tastes horrible, annoyed that flaxseeds donâ??t come micronized.
Day 3: Took 1 Hot-Rox in morning before workout, (dry retched\vomiting water) at gym in the bathroom. The Hot-Rox was just way to extreme for me my body isnâ??t used to it but the energy is amazing and I was working hard. HSM today
Day 4: Took 1 Hot-Rox in morning, did the circuit took me awhile 20mins + -, largely because I had extremely sore muscles from previous day.
Day 5: Feeling very weak today and ill, not really sure why just feeling lightheaded almost. I took Hot-Rox 1 pill with lunch shake, it was much better tolerated later in the day. Otherwise i’ve moved from chocolate to strawberry, SOOOO MUCH tastier!
