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

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

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.

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

I have no shame, if you haven't noticed
