Another GVT


#1

don't yell, I know there are many other GVT threads.

Im in the 2nd week,i should be on the 3rd but im having to take 2-3 days off between workouts because im so sore i cant move,but i have gotten bigger so i have no problem putting up with it.i just needed to know if it will hurt my progress if i dont complete the program within the 55 days

btw i take no supps at all,not even protein,all food


#2

What are you doing GVT , GVT 2000, Adv. GVT ????

#6

so why don't you use whey or Surge ?


#7

Surge is not reccomended for my age, though i can still buy it. Why because my parents say its a waste of money, even though its my money and they have a hard time paying for all the food i need.


#8

you are sore because yours recovery last longer than some guy who use whey , because you don't use liquid protein whit fast resorbation which helps faster recovery .

how many years do you have ?


#9

im 17 if you wanted to know age

im in the workout 2 pattern and i love the program because you might feel bad the next few days,but when you walk out that night,you feel awesome,ill put some numbers up wen im through
