One of our products on sale (AtLarge Nutrition)
 
I have never done this (I co-own AtLarge Nutrition), but I wanted to take a quick second and mention that we have our best selling ergogen RESULTS on sale right now. RESULTS is a combination of Creapure creatine monohydrate, Beta-Alanin, HMB, and dextrose all at lab proven doses. It is a VERY potent strength and strength endurance supplement which is perfect for CrossFitters. The only catch is for Paleo practitioners relative to the dextrose and to that I only can say I strongly suggest you consider giving it a try.

I have personally worked with many CrossFitters who have given this product a try and found it to be very effective. The sale is 20% off (from $49.95 to $39.95 for a 30 day supply) and lasts until Wednesday 10/20. Here is a link to the product if you are interested:

No disrespect to Chris, who I think is great, but I'd like an explanation for why this doesn't violate the AUP.

Mark, I had actually asked the admin about mentioning a sale we were having a few weeks ago and I am 99% sure this is where it was suggested that I post about it. After getting permission I decided against it as it was a general sale. I decided to post this because I know the product is an excellent one for CF.

If it is a problem then I have no problem with it being removed. I certainly don't want to be banished. That is why I asked for permission for the other sale and figured it was ok this time as I had not posted about the other sale.

I do think the intent of the rule you posted is to keep SPAMMERS off the site and I certainly do not consider myself that. Out of my 500 and something posts this is the first one that solely mentioned something about a product and I don't plan to do it again in the near future.

Again, mods/admin, if this is a problem please remove and let me know and I will be sure never to do it again. If not, I will also be sure to do extremely rarely if at all.

As a brief explanation, Chris has been contributing to the boards for awhile. He did not just pop on here and promote his product. Supporters of the community who contribute to the board are allowed to occasionally post product info here, with moderator approval.
If he were to jump on here with his first three posts and talk about his sales, that would be different.

Sounds like a really cool product - big fan of beta alanine and hmb.

Thanks, I'll order some and check it out. I appreciate having Chris on the boards, many experienced people have withdrawn because they feel like it's not worth the hassle. My feeling is that people who contribute to our community who want to promote their businesses are fine, especially at a 500 to 1 ratio.

I also appreciated the post, messaged Chris privately, and decided to try the product. I definitely agree there is a benefit to having regular posters promote their businesses.

Chris, when is this supplement supposed to be taken? I see there are 30 doses so I'm guessing just one shake a day. Post workout? Pre?

I'm not a big supplement guy but wouldn't mind taking one for 2-3 months at a time for a strength cycle. Or maybe to help recovery and gains over the holidays when I should have more time to workout than normal.

Does it seem to help with recovery? Is there any loading period?

**edit
Ah. I see the label specifies how/when to take it.

50g of dextrose. Hmm, that would be a 50% increase in my carb intake.
