Started Mag-10 cycle about 11 days ago, and just caught a cold/flu. Usually never get sick, but I feel miserable (aches, pains, fever, etc.) Up til today (11/01), I had gotten good results (up 8 lbs. – mostly LBM, strength gains were immediate as well).
- Should I stop Mag-10 until recovered, then continue on (had 5 days left in the cycle -- Growth Surge Project). Or should I just stop the cycle now and go to Growth Surge Stage 3, ending Mag-10 cycle?
- Also, I used Massive Eating protocol (mostly P+C meals), and was up at 4600 kcals/day the first week. I was literally eating all the time, and it was hard. The 2nd week, I started using lots of Promax bars to fill in the calories, since I was sick of eating so often and things at work got real busy. What is the consensus opinion of this? Promax bars taste good -- lots of sugar, but that is OK when on Mag-10, right? I'm eating about 10 bars/day right now. I know, I know -- Grow! bars would be better, but they don't sell those anywhere near my house yet.
- Finally, I've been getting by with very little sleep, and have had to do some of the workouts from Growth Surge (2 x's/day) together (did 2 workouts at once). Also, have had to at times get by on little or no sleep, and just continue on with workouts (so I'll sometimes get 3 or 4 workouts in before I get any sleep). Results have been great, but has anyone else had to do this? Should I just extend the cycle and get some rest?
P.S. Massive eating should be called Massive pooping! Just flushed a 10 lb. load!
