    RPM Question


    Hello

    I was wondering if putting RPM into a drink would make the absortion faster and if so how much faster?

    Also i'm a non-responder ...i'm around 185 and have tried upping the dosage from 4 to 5 and 5 to 6....I've been on it for about a week and noticed much of nothing. Could it be plausible to make me a responder by making it into a drink?

    p.s. sorry if i have a asked something that has been answered multiple times...i tried searching and found nothing regarding this.
    Thanks in advance

    As a general rule drinks always hit you much faster. At least this has always been my experience. Anybody remember the original ultimate orange with ephedra? Stuff was awesome.

    Perhaps the alkaline levels from the yogurt and banana are interfering with the absorption. Try this next time-dose the RPM ~90 minutes before training and eat your pre-WO meal ~60 minutes before training.

    I can't comment on whether it hits harder or not for sure (I think it does personally but could be a partial placebo effect?), but I will tell you that it tastes horrible . I don't think RPM was intended to be a tasty beverage.

    Well look at the big brains on Rodja...

    Anywho, IMO 1 hour isn't that long. I am sure your belly is still full and is affecting the absorption. Especially the yogurt.

    I would do what Rodja suggested or maybe try eating 2 hours prior to your RPM intake and then have a light snack 30-45 minutes after if you need to.
