best stimulant for powerlifting
alright, to keep it short i was a stimulant abuser (tweaker) for a while (now clean), mainly adderall, and i know it's EXTREMELY catabolic, so amphetamines are out of the question but which of these less potent stimulants would be best? NOT for recreational purposes, just to push the limits.
the ones i noticed weren't as catabolic and don't raise heart rate as much are
yohimbe (though this one made my heart feel like it was going to explode)
i've got bench on monday and i feel like going all out on it. also if there's any tips on avoiding adderall catabolism or any less catabolic stimulants feel free to suggest, thanks

Do a shot of coffee. That is what I do before my workout.
I use strong sumatran coffee though.

^good advice... except hes 140lbs and that was his 5th post..... not sure what advice id take from someone whose name is "bulk up man"
1,3 dimethylamylamine is by far the best otc stimulant i have used for strength/agression/endurance
caffiene = enuff said
you could try PEA.. but unless i take a monster dose, i dont feel it
not sure how much your trying to roll dice, but ephedrine is nice too..
i was more of a garbage head than a tweaker.... i personally liked downers TBH
my favorite is geranium+caffiene+loud music+bad mood

Im old...humor me here. I went through a powerlifting phase, did a bench competition what not. Back then the big thing was the iodine stuff u sniff, like the stuff u wave in front of someones nose when they are unconscious and ur trying to wake them up. You used to take a big ol whiff of that then grip it and rip it!

Caffeine builds up tolerance fast. Make sure you cycle the hell out of it.

yeah i've heard that smelling salts are VERY effective and since it's not really a psychoactive shouldn't develop tolerance but i also need something that provides endurance. i drink monster 1 time a month before bench and it makes me a lifting machine, but it stops having this effect the longer i use it, that's why i was asking if anyone knew about something less popular. i still have a concerta laying around but i'm not sure if add meds are a good choice due to the fact they release cortisol like crazy.

if caffiene makes you a lifting machine then try a caffiene+dmaa combo, youll be more then impressed.

1,3 dimethylamylamine 20-40mg with 100-200mg caffeine

if u dont wana take a supplement or something like that, just eat sugar and carbs before you lift....sounds dumb but i do that when im not taking a stim product. just dont take too much sugar so if u happen to start to crash during the workout, its not as bad.

Honestly man, from a medical stand point, the best thing you can do is make sure you're well rested and AVOID all stimulants during your workout. Your sympathetic nervous system is already under a considerable amount of stress while you're power-lifting, and that means your heart rate is greatly increased, your respiratory rate and blood pressure are also increased. Along with that, your body releases a natural stimulant more powerful than anything you can take, called epinephrine. Adding stimulants to your body while doing an intense cardiovascular workout puts a considerable amount of stress on your heart, and regardless of whether or not you're a well trained athlete, can be very dangerous. While caffeine may even seem benign, it can cause mild to significant arrhythmia (abnormal heartbeat), and the more powerful stuff only increases the risk. I know this is probably not the answer you wanted, but as a healthcare provider I feel obligated to make sure you know the risks. I am also talking from experience, and I used drink quite a bit of caffeine (red line) while I lifted, and had several scary instances where I had moments of really uncomfortable heart palpitations that I could directly link to the caffeine use, because once I stopped it, it never happened again. Anyway, good luck lifting, and if you do keep using stimulants use them in moderation and be careful.
