    RPM, not too impressed.


    I ordered RPM on all the great user feedback on these boards and took a dosage of 4 caps (I weight about 190, 5'10) before a workout. I wasn't as tired as I was getting out of work, but nothing was noticable in light of the talk on these boards.

    So I gave it a second chance in the AM, during work on an empty stomach...same effect...nothing of to make note of other than not falling asleep.

    So I got home and on an empty stomach took 4 before my cardio and still...nothing.

    Tonight I'm going to dose at 5 caps and see if it makes any difference but so far I'm not seeing ANY of these effects everyone's raving about like "VROOM VROOM!" and the like.

    Is anyone else having this experience like I?


    I will add that I am completely happy with AN's PM weightloss product though.

    I'm going to try it. To be honest I haven't noticed anything in light of Mental Clarity, Endurance, maybe a SLIGHT pump...but nothing I could actually place on the supplement.

    I was damn excited for this too...We'll see what 5 caps does and I'll get back to you tonight.

    For me energy wasn't like what everybody else reported, I had a slight increase but my sexual drive/desire was through the roof.

    I didn't immediately fall in love either, based on the sample pack i recieved. I know two days is too quick to right anything off, but I was sort of let down that I didn't get the amazing rush preworkout others reported.

    I'll be likely to try this again, assuming feedback stays so positive.

    This was more in line with my results... I did notice a slight increase in strength.

    Needless to say, I bought a bottle.

    We have had a few non-responders- one guy even said it put him to sleep!! It sounds like you are dosing correctly- you may be one of the 0.5% (5 people out of roughly 1,000) that got little or no results from RPM- everyone is different!!

    From all the feedback I have gotten- there is a "sweet spot" that is different for every one- and you have to play around with the dose a little to find it- and it really does not seem to have much to do with body weight (which is what we base our recommendations off of)- mine is 4 caps @ 205- don't need any more than that- but I have seen guys who are 225 only take 3 and get crazy results!!!

    When I did get my sample I found the same exact problem but just chalked it up to non-responder. Applied sounds like a great company and with all that research that came with the product im eager for more of their stuff to come out. Keep up the good work guys, I may not have felt it but I can see the great effort put into it!!

    Guys, thanks for the feedback! Believe it or not it's stuff like your comments above that help to improve formulation of future products. The more detail about your stats (weight, etc.), dosing, and experience, the better.

    Yeah- it happens to a few people here and there- but I will take a roughly 99% effectiveness rate any day of the week

    Hey bro!

    I'm doing great. I had some health issues that side-lined me for quite a long time, but I'm back and better than ever. I used the time off to concentrate on my diet and I'm looking better than ever now after being back in the gym for roughly 2 months.

    I'll bring the rest into PM, I don't want to hijack either!

    I'm 5'11" 204lbs and used two 5 cap servings on consecutive days. Took them 50-60 minutes preworkout, 30 minutes pre workout I took cissus+powerfull+GEE. Drank Creatine Glucon. during workout.

    If it makes you feel any better, I didn't notice much of anything off Xfactor either, which many people rave about.

    As was stated by JSouth, you guys seem like a great company and I'm sure RPM will sell like crazy based on feedback. Anybody confident enough in thier product to showcase samples as much as you have is obviously carrying a good product.

    I suppose it's sort of like Ergopharm AMP--people swear by the stuff, but I've taken 6 caps at once and felt slightly off-center, but no energy whatsoever.

    I think I might be the one said to have fallen asleep on RPM. That was my first dose of sample at 3 pills. My next dose I doubled up to 6, and was smiling.

    I left some feedback (including stats) from my samples in this thread: It almost brings a tear to me eye. Read beyond my first post.

    So far since receiving my purchased bottle, I have dosed 4 caps non-workout days, and 5 on workouts (well, there has only been 1 workout day, as today is day 3 total).

    I received my sample last week, but the entire envelope was damaged en route(it looked like the post office set it on fire, b/c it arrived in a clear evidence bag), so I just picked up a bottle myself last Tuesday. I experimented with the dosages a bit and I've seen better results as I've been using it. At first it had zero effect, but it has progressively gotten better. Depending on how I feel, I've been taking between 4-6 caps ed. I'm not getting the results that were reported, but its working now.

    Just takes a while for some people- RPM dosing is something you have to play around w/ a little....

    We try to give the best recommendations on our dosing charts- but w/ RPM, the effective dosage seems to be all over the place....

    PS Evidence bag? Wonder what happened? Someone probably thought it was money and ripped into it....

    Ok, so I tried RPM again before my workout today, and since I had the day off I wanted to see if it was because I was sluggish from coming home from work the past times I've utilized it...I had a full night's sleep, no drinking the night before...and still nothing. If I had wanted to put my head down and take a mid-day nap on this, I could have. I dosed 5 pills one hour after a Whey shake. I couldn't even report an energy rush due to the caffeine in it. Is there any way I could return the remaining RPM to you or to Nutra in exchange for one of your other AN products? I've used about 25 caps out of the 120. I don't just wanted a refund because as I stated in the past I am impressed by your nighttime thermo product. I want to give this company a fair shake and I was caught up in the outstanding hype that RPM had gotten and ordered it without collecting a free sample...Please let me know if there's anything that can be done, thanks.

    Thanks guys!!

    PS wastud- just keep adding a cap per day until you do- that is the best way to go- and remember- the best effects of RPM occur over time- not right away- the "sweet spot" is more for the pre-workout stimulation and lipolysis- the other, more anabolic effects of RPM manifest themselves more slowly, along the lines of long term strength, hardness, and lbm gains
