    Drive works! Reading through the various commentaries and logs on Drive should confirm this.

    As a track athlete, Drive should provide noticeable benefits for you. The nutrients in the blend act in synergy.
    Icariin is a glucocorticoid antagonist (blocks cortisol), supports protein synthesis, inhibits acetylcholinestearase to ensure stronger muscle contractions, boosts dopamine levels, enhances cAMP/cGMP, supports growth-hormone metabolism, and is a potent prolactin inhibitor.
    Forskolin is a versatile compound cherished for its ability to normalise blood pressure, increase heart function, and increase intracellular cAMP (leading, amongst others, to increased liberation of fatty acids from adipocyte cells).
    Dodder Seed has icariin-like properties including cAMP boosting (which stimulates the thyroid for enhanced fat burning), supports the preservation of lean mass, muscle density, and strength.
    Naringin has many cool properties of its own, including cGMP boosting and aromatase inhibition. Furthermore, naringin enhances the action of PDE-5 inhibitors such as icariin, and increases the half-life of the other compounds in the blend.
    Cordyceps is a powerful adaptogen, an antioxidant, and is revered as a multifaceted nutrient with anti-aging and endurance-boosting properties.
    Altogether, it sounds to me like Drive will do great service to any athlete.

    Drive has no side effects in the classical sense. To be fair, though, some people with a sensitive gastrointestinal tract may experience gastric distress due to the Forskolin in the blend. Usually, this should not happen, if you stay within the recommended range for your body weight. If it does occur, the workaround is to dose low and slowly ramp up, so your system does not experience any shocks from the influx of Forskolin. Furthermore, joint aches may result from Drive supplementation due to Icariin (working in synergy with Dodder Seed and their effects potentiated by Naringin). This should not happen within the normal dose ranges, and would not even be noticeable if you use Fish Oil at the same time.

    If you have not tried Drive, you might want to contact [email protected] to request samples. Then make up your own mind what you think of Drive

    I agree with what strategic said, but had a little to add. I'm a 40 year old who has been 50+ lbs overweight for the last 20 years, diagnosed with arthritis at 25. I never noticed joint pain over normal while taking drive. Also I tend to think that any tiredness came from the fact that people exerted themselves harder while on drive as drive gives me noticeably more overall energy/endurance than not taking it.

    On the GI front, the gastric distress manifests itself usually as increased gas, and possibly "forskolin fudge" ie soft bowel movements. Not to a diarrhea stage, but not completely solid either. The latter usually doesn't happen with ramp up, but the gas you may have to live with

    I also find that the GI part the easy discussed is somewhat true. At first when starting drive, diarrhea can occur. I noticed when first starting drive I had some semi diarrhea going on. Afterwards after a ramping the diarrhea goes away. After awhile it becomes solid poop. By ramping up you will experience less frequent trips to the bathroom as well as less gas. The effects on forskolin on your body is quite amazing. It gives some nice strength boost with a crazy recomp effect.

    ok directions.... take 10 rpm 15 minutes before your up to run at your meet when the guy fires the gun youll already be at the finish like and then theyll probably most likly wanna test you for crack, but no dont take 10 rpm 15 min before a meet that willl be way too overwhelming!!! IMO it was just a joke not serious advice hahaha

    what do you mean by high how high

  9. How do I get the right amount of dosage for my body weight?? I weigh 180??

  10. the right dosages of what?

  11. do you mean Drive or Xfactor?

    X-Factor should be 1000mg reguardless of BW imo.

    Drive should be 6 caps around your weight. You may want to go higher if your heavier than 200 though. It just depends on your budget. Higher dosages of forskolin gives a stronger recomp effect. I noticed that with drive without any cardio. A bump from 6-9 caps made a slight difference in body appearance without cardio! Simply amazing.

  13. I agree!

  14. bump for jack98.

  15. I need some help guys,

    I am on day 46 of my Drive/RPM/X-Factor cycle and I'm looking to quit the X-Factor at Day 50 (as recommended).

    However, I still have two bottles of Drive/RPM that I would like to continue taking for another 8 weeks (which I feel is safe, don't you?). I was just wondering what you think I should stack with it to keep the cycle going. Maybe Superdrol NG? I'm just not sure.


    All suggestions are appreciated.




    -Spaz

  16. Should be fine to just run the drive/rpm. What are your goals like?

    Still bulking. I asked this on BB.com as well and some suggested 6-OXO Extreme. So that's what I think I may run.





    -Spaz

  18. could do that, the new MassFX might be nice as well for bulking.

  19. I unknowingly lined up that combo X-factor, Drive, RPM (DTH) as my mild pct for my JW cycle. This has me pretty excited.

    Your PCT has the capability to exceed your JW cycle

  22. i was wondering if you just take the recommended dosage for each to stack.....im looking for a really good stack.....i did a cycle of deca and wasnt as impressed as i thought i would be.....and i've taken kre-alkalyn which made me feel amazing in the gym, just cant seem to find anything to stack that with......so im looking for a new one, and this one is at the top of the list currently

  23. Yep, just label dose each.

  24. yep, take the reccomended dosages for each and adjust the dosage fromtl there to find your sweet spot. In general though the doses
    listed on the bottles are pretty accurate and will give the results desired.

  25. should i run it with kre alkalyn or would that be too much to be taking at once? or should i sub in kre alkalyn or a massfx product for the x factor after 50 days as suggested above

    but isnt the recommended dosage as given on the bottle say only take up to 4 if your 200 lbs.....im only 170

  27. The recommended dosage has been raised from initial labeling, but 4-5 a day at 170 is still good.

    Thought it, but didn't type it.

  29. I have no shame, if you haven't noticed
