Some advice pls for a newbie to the forum. I've been taking animal products for about 3 months now. I just received my new stack of pak/stak/flex/pump/nitro/omega. The advice i need is when would you take all of these throughout the day?

First, you got a great core in Omega, Nitro, Flex, Pak and Pump. Omega covers the EFAs from fish/vegetable-based sources. Nitro for the proven ffEAAs (free form essential amino acids). Flex for the joint/tendon/ligament support--I use this daily as a kinda joint "insurance". Pak--goes without saying, the foundation. Everything should be based around the Pak. Pump--the daily dose of creatine and then some.

So my question is, how did you arrive at Stak and not, say, M-stak? Wondering...

Anways, to answer your question--Omega, Flex and Pak you can take with meals. You can split them up or you could even take them all with one meal. You got a lotta pills, so you'd probably want to split them up. For example, Pak with breakfast, Flex with lunch, Omega with dinner. You can do any combo.

Pump you'd take 30-45 minutes pre-workout on liftin' days. Now some fellas take Pump only on liftin' days, and take bulk creatine on the off days. 2-3g should do ya. When I run Pump, I run it every day, but I often drop out the red capsule (stims) on the off days.

For Nitro, you have a lot of options. You can take it pre- or you can take it post-workout. I might suggest takin' it post-workout with some juice or water. It's up to you really.

As for Stak, can you take it pre- also. Here are some other suggestions: http://forum.animalpak.com/showthread.php?t=2175&highlight=animal+pump+stak

The studies are mixed on EAAs. Some suggest pre- and others suggest post-workout. Some say just EAAs are fine, other say EAA + CHO is better. So for me, I think it comes down to preference ultimately. For the record, I don't regularly take EAAs on off days--I consider these supercharged aminos/protein, so I use them around the workout. Still, one my exception and soft spot is for Juicy Watermelon EAA Stack--I drink that like it's goin' out of style because of the taste.

Thanks Rep! I order my products through bodybuilding.com and got the stak along with the pak in a package deal. I'm 44 and thought that the stak would provide a good test boost for me. I've never used a test boost before but the Animal line of products are so damm good plus realiable i thought i'd give it a try! semper fi!

That would be Jak's Stak Pak or something like that, right? Let us know how it goes brother and consider keeping a training log in the "Your Journey" section. The fellas here are extremely supportive...
