    So how would you set up the dosing of this around your pre-wo nutrition?

    For instance, would you eat your meal 1.5 hrs pre WO, then dose this at 1 hr prior? I assume you would not have quite an "empty stomach" at that point.

    What do you guys do?

    I would take it about 45 minutes pre-workout, and add in some Steel Edge with it- they seem to go together really well, and SE works immediately...

    So would you drink your pre WO shake before or after that dose? And how long before/after?

    Use on non-workout days will be up to you...... if you only want energy boost in the gym, don't worry about using it on non-workout days. I would strongly suggest using it daily however. The results that build up are quite nice. At minimum go 2 caps on non-workout days.
    I use RPM 2x/day on workout days. 1x/day on non-workout days.

    Can't seem to find an answer searching around, but would RPM be safe to take if one were being tested (NCAA)? Thanks appreciate it!

    Are you doing this to build up stores of icariin or for the stim effects?

    I am kind of new to the supplement world, but can Creatine and RPM be taken together? I take Creatine pre and post workout.

    I assume this is okay to take for natty BBing competitions? I assume it doesn't effect your testosterone:epitestosteron ratio?

    It's not just a matter of the caffeine content, it's also a matter of the ingredient they added that enhances the absorption and extends the half-life (naringin).

    I've been using RPM now for some time and I only take 2 caps in the morning and that's all. The response curve for my body is very smooth and the effects last for some time.

    I just got a new tea product (Tea-3) that has some caffeine from green tea, yerba mate, and oolong tea and I may have to adjust the dosage to one cap. I'd imagine that when Drive comes out, I'll be doing 2 Drive caps and 1 RPM cap/ 2x per day. I like getting the most out of my workout, but I also don't like jacking myself up for each session with by doubling up on caffeine and other stims. One becomes so reliant on it that he or she can't perform a good workout without it.
    Freedom means nothing here.

    I am ordering 3 bottles of RPM on Friday. I was thinking of taking it with Leviathan but read where it is also a stim and you should not take to much stims together. Why is this? Also what would be a good fat burner to mix with RPM if I do not take Leviathan.

    In general, yes. Considering, though, that NO-Xplode also contains Methylxanthines (Caffeine), you might adjust the NO-Xplode dose somewhat downwards, if you are overly sensitive to stimulants. Still, the amount of caffeine in the full doses of both RPM and NO-Xplode for 30 or so days may not be a problem. Other than the caffeine watch-out, the NO-Xplode blend would appear to make a great stack with RPM. If you go ahead with the RPM/NO-Xplode stack, please let us know how it goes. All the best!

    Its a pretty bad idea. Don't stack stimulants.

    Right now I'm taking Finigenx Magnum as a pulsing cycle for 5 weeks. I'm taking it only on my workout days which is Monday, Wednesday and Friday or Saturday. On my non-workout days I'm taking 50 mg DHEA and 25mg of ATD. Could I use RPM while I'm on this cycle or not? Could I use on my non-workout days or workout days?

    Any suggestions??

    RPM does not seem to promote the development of male sex characteristics in females. Yet, RPM exhibits P-SARM (Phytochemical Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator) characteristics. These may include testosterone mimetic properties, aromatase inhibition, PDE-5 inhibition, bone density changes, estrogen inhibition, and changes in testosterone:cortisol and tesosterone:estrogen ratios.

    Positive bone density changes and PDE-5 inhibition are beneficial to women; testosterone mimetic effects are definitely not that good for a woman; aromatase inhibition and estrogen inhibition are beneficial to women in competitive sports; and changes in testosterone:cortisol and tesosterone:estrogen ratios may be beneficial to women in competitive sports.

    What does all this mean? RPM has some benefits for women but may also produce "not-so-desirable" results in other women. Some women, especially in competitive events may find RPM quite useful. Altogether, if you want to be extra careful, you may decide not to recommend it to your female partner, if she is not a competitive athlete. If you end up recommending it though, she should start her dosage low (preferable half the dosage for men) and ramp up, if necessary.

    Agree. Rate limiting enzymes would come into play and help in a way to prevent male characteristics... but the question is one for the individual to decide on their own. Note that Icariin IS utilized in a number of libido enhancement products for men AND women.

    As for use with your current cycle, I see no issues with using simultaneously. However, you may find the ATD combo w/ RPM to be rough on drying you out. You'll want to consider the interaction of the Naringin w/ all items in your current stack as well.

    Thanks Lanbane! This is the new Finigenx formula...the old version was a progestin. This one is not...unfortunately...i caught that too late!

    So I could use this for pre-workout? Just on my workout days?

    There have been quite a few people who have run this combo with zero complaints. RPM seems to help counteract the lethargy feel some people have reported on JW.

    If you want to integrate RPM in your stack, personally I would try Bad Ass Mass, Jungle Warfare and RPM. This would be a good kick a$$ stack!

    Venom and RPM together might be too much stims for the body! Of course, I'm no expert...this is just my opinion!

    I tried RPM today for the first time and let me tell you....wow!
    Like everyone has already said..goodbye to the after workout jitters & anxiety, I can be a normal person again.

    I would like to use RPM to burn off Fat and read about people taking it twice(am/pm). How many pills should I take in the morning and pre-workout?

    My workouts begin at 7pm and I currently 225lbs.

    Thanks again for all the help.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    RPM dosage is fairly flexible. You can do any of the following, or try them and see which works best for you:

    Morning (empty stomach): 1
    Pre-workout (empty stomach): 3

    or

    Morning (empty stomach): 2
    Pre-workout (empty stomach): 3

    or

    Morning (empty stomach): 1
    Pre-workout (empty stomach): 4

    Whichever dosing protocol you choose, you will see noticeable results during workouts, after workouts, and on a cumulative basis. It is also important to take RPM daily to ensure stable cumulative effects. Non-workout doses are basically maintenance doses and can be half the dose on workout days. The only watch out is RPM may interfere with sleep, if dosed too close to bed-time.

    Be sure to take some omega-3 fats to support joint integrity.

    All the best!
