Ripped is going Slin Sane with Genomyx!
 
First off I want to say thank you to GENOMYX for giving me this opportunity to test out their newest version of Slin Sane. Here's a quick break down of what it is and what it does:

Slin-Sane Overview

Enhances vasodilation and muscle pumps
Elevates nitric oxide
Drives nutrients into cells
Stimulates insulin release, mimicks insulin and enhances insulin’s endogenous effect
Reduces fasting glucose and insulin
Reduces glucose response to meals
Reduces fat gain and speeds up fat loss
Regenerates pancreatic beta cells
Supports healthy blood lipids
Lowers liver lipid content (major factor in cardiovascular disease)
Increases plasma adiponectin

SLIN SANE F.A.Q.

1. When should I take Slin-Sane, and do I need to cycle it?

Slin-Sane should be taken before carbohydrate heavy meals (30g or more). Take 1 capsule about 15 minutes before you start eating. If you’re using it every day, you may want to take a couple of weeks off after a month of use as its generally a good idea to cycle any supplement, although studies have used the ingredients for long durations with no ill effects.

2. How do I use Slin-Sane for a muscle building phase?

You should be able to increase your carbohydrate intake higher than a normal “bulking” phase with the use of Slin-Sane, due to its favorable nutrient partitioning effects you won’t have to worry about excess fat gain. Take 1 capsule before 3 carbohydrate heavy meals and up your carbs by about 20-30% above intake for normal muscle building phases. Be sure to take a serving before your workouts, and sip on a fast absorbing carb+protein shake while training. You should notice a significant increase in pump and vascularity during the workout, and noticeably faster muscle gain over the course of usage.

3. How do I use Slin-Sane for a fat loss phase?

Again you should be able to lose fat on a slightly higher carb intake than normal, but you’ll want to cut your carb intake down significantly from a muscle building phase. You can try timing most of your daily carbs around weight training (a shake during the workout and one carb heavy meal after), and take a serving of Slin-Sane before each. You can also spread your carbs out into three meals throughout the day with a serving of Slin-Sane before each. You should notice accelerated fat loss over the course of usage.

4. Can I take Slin-Sane without carbs?

This is not recommended due to its hypoglycemic effects; however certain advanced users may want to experiment with Slin-Sane before meals on a very low carbohydrate or ketogenic diet. Just be sure to have some carbs around in case hypoglycemia starts to sneak up on you, as it can be fairly uncomfortable.

5. Can females use Slin-Sane?

Absolutely. Slin-Sane works the same way in women as it does in men, and none of the ingredients exhibit any sort of gender specific effect.

6. Is Slin-Sane safe to stack with other supplements?

Definitely. Slin-Sane is safe with most other supplements, just watch out for anything that is known to lower blood glucose or increase insulin sensitivity. You should avoid any of the various forms of Alpha Lipoic Acid at the same meal as Slin-Sane, and you may want to time fish oil with meals away from the Slin-Sane, or use a lower dose than normal at the same meal.

Looking strong big R.

rippednmichigan 01-21-2010 10:27 AM

Thanks guys, I need to find a box or chair a little bit smaller to go a bit deeper. I felt on the leg extensions I could have done more, 150 is the most I've done I believe and it felt a little light.

rippednmichigan 01-21-2010 05:07 PM

Had a great day today, felt focused and in to it. Got a great pump and was sweating a little bit more than normal which is a good thing considering my garage was only 40 degrees by the time I was done.
