I very much understand that nutrition is crucial to maximizing gains in the weight room, so I want to be clear from the get-go that I am not disputing that training with the ANACONDA protocol would be the most optimal route.
What I would like to know is what kind of gains should I expect without it? I am a strength & conditioning coach at the collegiate level, and the products recommended are not legal from an NCAA standpoint.
For some sports, random drug testing can take place even in the summer/winter breaks from school, so there is no window for "illegal" supplementation even outside of official training periods. I am currently trying out and reading through the I, Bodybuilder phases, and I am really liking what I see.
The pre-activation, ramping and force outputs are right down my alley as far as athletic benefits, and the potential for building mass is an even greater bonus.
What should I recommend to my athletes in lieu of your recommended products? What, if anything, is an acceptable substitute?
