    Supplementing cardio


    Posted a thread over in the supplement section about this topic, but I may get more info from this section.

    I'm wondering what supplements will help increase cardio capacity. I normally run 2-5 mile distances, and my goal is to reach a 18 minute 3 mile run. My goal is speed, not fat loss, although that a great addition.

    Any supplements that would be good for running?
    I was contemplating these -
    *Anabolic Pump and DCP
    *CEE
    Super Cissus RX - probably not needed if running AP
    Citrulline Malate

    The supplements with a * are supplements I'm currently taking, but I'm nearly out of AP and DCP.

    Any ideas for a stack for running? Again my goals are NOT to lose fat, but that is a welcome side goal. My goal is to be able to run faster, longer, and more efficiently. I would not be suprised if there are no real supplements for running, just takes doin it, but I thought I'd look for ideas anyways.


    Thanks for any input!

    BCAA's
    Beta-Alanine
    glycerin

    I would imagine that DCP would hinder your performance, due to it's TTA content.

    Definitly going to look into beta-alanine and the other one... good heads up!

    And DCP!? More harm than good for cardio!? Can I ask that you elaborate please? TTA is somewhat of a mystery to me... don't know too much about it aside from it being a repartitioning agent that can cause slight cramping.

    DCP helped my endurance because of the PLCAR. Rhodiala is a good adaptogen that also helps w/ endurance.

    Oh darn, now I'm caught in the middle.

    One thing is for sure though - I plan on purchasing some beta-alanine from NP ooooraaahhh
    However, supplements online that contain it dose it at around 1g. Nutraplanet is dosing at "3-4g, TWICE a day". Whaaaaaat!? Any ideas on how to approach?

    So far I'm looking at:
    AP
    DCP (possibly... contemplating, hoping for more info)
    Beta-Alanine
    Citrulline Malate

    Dosing on Beta-Alanine and Citrulline Malate would be of a huge help! Remember for running purposes... not sure if they would be different for a weight training pre-workout supplementation.

    I didn't think DCP had Rhodiola in it.

    I agree that PLCAR will help with endurance (as would ALCAR), but TTA (for me at least) weakens my performance. From my experiences, TTA can cause cramps and has a strength sapping effect. I mean, I take 500mg TTA on an empty stomach prior to cardio to (hopefully) increase fat-burning, but I'm not going for time trials. I don't take it prior to lifting because my lifts go down when I do.

    Sorry, I meant he could add Rhodiola in addition to DCP.

    Also, my endurance skyrocketed on MANs BodyOctane. It combines many of the afore mentioned. If I ever run tren for real, I will run this alongside it no questions. ED
