Who… are you?
Anaconda has MAG-10 in it, along with some other jazz. Depending on your “level” (how long you’ve been lifting) different guys around here would suggest different things. If your goal is 5x5, sounds like you’re closer to the “novice” end of the spectrum like me - unless you have superfluous amounts of money (which seems to be your issue) go with whatever is less of a hit to your wallet for now.
The camp that will agree with me will use reasoning like “you can’t fully capitalize on the Anaconda protocol because you can’t yet push those limits to let it do its job of insane recovery,” and I agree with them.
If you’re a novice or something, go with the Surge protocol because its less expensive.
If you consider yourself intermediate or more advanced and think you workout like a madman on meth, go with the 'conda but be prepared to pay more.[/quote]
I didn’t realize 5x5 training program was a novice program, it’s actually one of the recommended rep/set combinations recommended by Charles Poliquin.
Although I’ve been making some noticeable gains, I do workout 5-days of the week and by day 5 I do feel a little run down and that’s one reason why I was considering the Anaconda / MAG-10 protocol. I just can’t afford all the FINiBARs and stuff.
But after reading through Anaconda and MAG-10 they seem to be very similar products and the write-up didn’t help me understand much. It may be good for everybody else but the ADD guy here sometimes needs a more simpler explanation. LOL
If somebody could clear up why to use both that’s fine, I just want to better understand the products. Biotest has always made fine products, I miss the old Grow! bars, so I’m not debating tha; I just want to better understand what’s what. Also, if I’m not doing FINiBARs and Alpha-GPC should I even bother with Anaconda and MAG-10 and just stick with Grow! Pre & Post Workout supplements?
