I have spent the entire weekend looking for the best posible answer to this, scouring the CT and ANACONDA forums all the way up to December of 2009. My question is one that has been asked and answered soo many times I have a headache from the computer screen, but none from the angle I am searching for.
Strength is my largest goal and current focus. 600lb squat and deadlift, 400lb bench, 350lb clean & Jerk ect.(raw) are what I am going to get. I am currently 201 lbs at 8.5% bodyfat. I want to progress toward my strength goals as quick as possible but not gain much weight (and yes I mean weight, not necissarily fat or muscle) because I participate in things like rock climbing and MMA and want to stay within easy reach of 198lbs for a powerligting meet and or eventual strongman competitions.
How should I attack my peri-workout/whole supplement regime, based on this info? The full ANACONDA Protocol is obviously great for strength but that goes along with considerable mass gain. Should I just stick to things like Spike, Alpha-GPC pre, and Power Drive post? Maybe that mixed with the ANACONDA Protocol 2? Or suffer the weight gain and stay with ANACONDA 1? Or.....
Any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated, especially from the coach himself.
Also I have read before by John Kiefer, that the CNS isnt fully optimal while active insulin is in the system. Do the recovery benefits of pre workout insuling spiking out-weigh this or is this an unfounded statement.
