I think it is a fantastic idea. I'm sure Dr. Houser will touch on the Arginine -> Citrulline conversion rate and agmatine's effects on it.

I think supplementation with all polyamines is a good one dependent upon the goal and appropriate concentration. Sometimes I do fear that certain proprietary supplements (even those that list doses) are underdosed and people may dismiss a certain compound's usefulness.
In the case of conversion; polyamines all interconvert for the most part...sometimes it is quick, sometimes it is not so quick. Citrulline itself recycles into arginine and offers a more prolonged NO conversion rate. Agmatine's route back to arginine is actually MUCH slower and dependent upon many factors, but the pathway is as follows:
Agmatine --> N-carbamylputrescine --> (putrescine) + citrulline --> arginine
Use of all of these agents modulate different forms of NOS and at different rates (which can more completely be found in the Agmatine thread).

So in regards to timing, i've found that agmatine + carbs about 45 minutes before my workout seems to be the sweet spot. When dosing Citrulline we would need to time this much closer to the workout? Semi-empty stomach.
