Now that Receptormax is back in stock, what would be an optimal strategy for its use with the Anaconda Protocol?
**The directions say to take 3 caps, 30 minutes prior to training, but following the original AP, the FINiBARs are to be taken 30 minutes prior to the workout.

Would taking 3 caps of Receptormax 45 minutes prior to the workout (15 minutes before the FINiBARs) be effective?

Is 45 minutes prior to the workout too long?
Is 15 minutes prior to the FINiBARs enough time to capatalize on the effects of the Receptormax?

If following the second protocol, would taking the Receptormax 30 minutes prior to the workout (20 minutes prior to the first dose of the second protocol) be ideal?

Still use the Receptormax as indicated on the directions. I usually have three capsules before leaving to go the gym (about 10 minutes down the road), eat my FINiBARs as soon as I get there, then load my body up with aminos and creatine (since I'm currently not using ANACONDA or MAG-10). I've been seeing some decent results this way.

Thanks for your response Eric.

Maybe just do the Receptormax 30 minutes before any other nutrients enter your mouth??? I wonder how important that 30 minute window is? I'm assuming the nutrients from the Receptormax need those 30 minutes to get into your system, so when nutrients (carbs) are ingested, the insulin response will be favorably affected....hmmmmmm?

I've just been taking them 45 minutes prior the workout (15 minutes prior to the Finibars). It seems to be working. I've been following the Anaconda Protocol before every single workout since December, and since getting back on the RM, my strength has increased, along with my vascularity.

Best of luck with your training.

Cool to hear that it's working well, I've been kicking around the idea of throwing it together with my own training too. As usual, I always try to find out as much as I can before trying anything (training wise or supplement wise), and in the case of Biotest stuff, I usually bombard ModBrian with a ton of emails and questions regarding their efficacy and various specs.

What I really liked hearing, was that as Receptormax can be used when bulking or cutting, even if I decide to forgo the Fall show I was looking at (give my elbow a break), I can still make use of its nutrient partitioning effects to limit my fat gain while I add a bit of LBM anyway.

I take it 15 minutes before the FINiBARs. 15 minutes imo is enough time for the Receptormax to kick in (i think it used to be recommended to take 15 minutes before anyway)

I continue to take 3 Receptormax approximately 30 minutes prior to training since they key is to have the ingredients in your system during training.

Are we to assume that what YOU do is the official Biotest answer? Because if not, why do you post such answers?

Wow man seriously? He's a Biotest rep - this is about as official as you're going to get. I think you can safely assume that was he's doing is a good protocol to follow. Trust me, he's not going to be using the supplements in some fucked-up way that messes with their efficacy.

Surely you know that what works for one person may not be the best approach on the whole. Hell, TC just wrote an article in which HE talked about using this supp in a different way than the "official" instructions prescribe.

In any case, I really don't care what one particular person does. If it's the best way to do it and it's the company's recommendatiuon, he should say that; not "I do this."

This is the label recommendation for Receptormax, which can be considered to be Biotest's official recommendation.

However, this doesn't mean that we won't occasionally post alternative protocols for our supplements based on new information, special circumstances, or an individual contributor's experience.

As with many products, there is more than one way to effectively use Receptormax.
