    The RPM Formula


    Hi, sorry if this may have been covered, but the rpm formula sees a vasodilation list of ingredients, but then the caffiene and energy complex if im not mistaken making stimulants a vasoconstrictor. Anyone help?

    I'll see if I can get you a scientific answer. But honestly from a loooong! Time user of rpm. All I can say is the synergism in the formula just works. Dirk has done an amazing job of putting each ingredient at the precise dose to ensure optimal performance. From personal experience it does produce a pump and a very solid one at that. It delivers on both ends pump and energy and test boosting/aggression. I'll see if I can get the man himself to come in though

    until then check this out. Icariin has a PDE5 inhibiting effect, which causes vasodilation and the extreme "pump".

    I know icariin is an PDE5 inhibitor. Horny goat weed derivative.

    That's cool man. I believe it will help. Although I'm a sprinter so my experience is slightly skewed when it comes to endurance events. But like Josh said drive is excellent for this.

    Definitely recommend Drive for endurance. I could literally run for over an hour while I was using it.

    That was back in my lighter days (I was trying to drop to 155lbs for MMA) and was using running as the primary tool to cut the weight.

    For your purposes Drive might be more suitable. I think RPM more for the anaerobic training. The two together are a great team but for an endurance based O2 maximizer then yeah, Drive.

    Yes caffeine is a metabolic stimulant but its primary purpose in RPM is to heighten mental alertness, focus and help improve muscle contraction/coordination. As for the effects of the caffeine in regards to the muscular wall of your vessels , it actually has a very strong effect in vasodilation. When caffeine (MXAC in RPM) acts on a cell, cAMP-PDE can no longer turn cAMP into AMP and the action of cAMP is prolonged. When your cAMP levels are increased, the blood vessels in skeletal muscle usually tend to relax and dilate. This results in more voluminous blood flow into the muscle, which in turn results in increased vascularity and pumps. The theobromine in RPM is another vasodilator which ups the amount of nutrients and oxygen into the brain and skeletal muscle.

    AFAIK the RPM/Drive stack was specifically formulated with the athlete in mind. Both of these products are not only fine to take pre cardio training but I would highly recommend it!!

    Sorry to bump guys but how about double dosing rpm?I run am and metcon at 5:30. I Do take 4 pills at 4:30pm. Need a stim hit to plough through a run and training

    I had great pump today taking it pre workout...lots of vein action and aggression. Maybe add some DAA caps along with drive and Cordygen v02 and cre-02.

    You can double dose the RPM, but I don't think you need a full 4 caps for the 2nd dose- start with 2 and adjust accordingly

    The Drive should work great with DAA and the Cordy- a little extra cordyceps never hurt anyone...

    I have a question about RPM. Is it possible that RPM is a powerfull anti-oxident, anti-bacterial and anti-viral? I am curious because my wife takes RPM daily and the everybody in the house has been sick on and off for the past 3 weeks. I mean from strep throat, the flu and a stomach bug. My wife hasn't caught a thing

    I believe the grapeseed and the bioprine could both help with immune function. But to what extent I have no clue lol. But glad to hear your wife is going strong with all the germs floating around. Be sure and take plenty of vitC
