Any idea on the ETA of Ergo's new Amp? I just saw a full-page ad in the new Flex Magazine yet it's not sold anywhere yet. Do you know if PA has even released it yet?
Last I heard PA say was "April Sometime" for the release. My guess is that we will be waiting for a while.
nobody has it yet it seems, but lots of interest for sure.........
what is it? a fat burner?
I'm getting mine in mid-april...it is being sold as an energy booster/fat burner but even PA said he really developed it for its energy properties. Seems to have been getting really good reviews from the people who received samples.
you must be special to know when you're getting yours when the rest of us (nobodies) gotta keep drooling and wait indeterminatelyOriginally Posted by MaNiaK1027
Yes special indeed! O, hell, I am PA's personal manwhore, Mike Bigelow Supplement Gigalow....I filled out the Muscle and Fitness stuff for the free giveaway and I am getting my AMP when they ship it out in Mid April!
I'm anxiously waiting too. PA posted on bb that they're having trouble synthesizeing the main ingredient, so it will now likely be after April before it's released. Based on the feedback at avant's forum, it sounds incredible.
well, let's keep a sense of perspective, here: it has a strong impact on breathing not totally unlike ephedrine & its kin, and beaucoup "tinglies" around the edges, which is also eph-like; it lacks eph's amphetamine-like shove, and that makes it much easier to deal with. Fat-burning properties unknown, according to PA as of the time of the public testing over @ Avant: he is (or was) positioning AMP as a pre-workout stim, and it'll work for that.
The test dose was more-or-less comparable to .25 tsp of Chocamine, just more ephedrine-like in some ways. Worth having? Definitely - I think the thing that impressed me the most was the ability to actually REST while on it. Is it "incredible"? well, no - not really...but I'll keep a bottle on hand, sure.
Well, I got my samples in. This morning I took 4 caps (2 doses) of Amp about an hour before lifting. I felt very stimulated, but comfortable. I was up, but there was no edge. Focus was good, and stamina was great. I took much less time between sets and really didn't want to stop lifting. I don't really use E/C before workout, makes me feel like my heart is about to jump out of my chest - Amp was not like this at all, I wasn't conscious of BP or HR. After my workout I went to my in-laws for Easter lunch. I was still 'up', but relaxed and almost euphoric. Came home and took a nap. I don't see sleeping while Amp is peaking, but as it's dropping off, it's very possible.
Overall, very good stuff, but I agree with BodyWizard - and I don't really understand the parallels to illicit drugs or the potential for abuse. Maybe with less caffiene or more of the active...? Nice, clean stimulation, without being jittery or edgy. Long lasting and smooth. Feeling of well being reminds me of when I first tried alcar. No crash at all when effects are wearing off. I'll definitely get some when it's out, but I'll probably only use it once or twice a week, as I usually train at night, and this just lasts too long, at 4-6 hours.
so, now that you've tried it, is it incredible?
Incredible may be a little much. If fat loss is good as EC, and you could safely take it everyday, then yeah, it would be incredible. I took two this morning, and I like it but two doesn't kick my ass. It's different, that's for sure, very smooth, and it's certainly a more convenient pre workout stim than my CM/Tyro/Alcar/Pira/Choline/Caff/CEE stack lol. It's a winner, and I'll definitely buy some.Originally Posted by BodyWizard
My partying days are pretty much over, but I bet Amp would make a long night of clubbing or drinking a little more interesting.
Intv, thanks for the smooth review. "Smooth" like Crown Royal? JK.
Sounds like your experience w/ it is very similar to mine.Originally Posted by intv
another bump for you Stryder, do you know when this stuff will be in?
I heard at Avant that it will be early May.
Should come out the first week of May...
This post is concerning the death of my husband, who was known on this board as "The Reporter." His death occurred on Sunday, April 10. The cause of death was "just classified as a heart attack." Although my husband did have hypertension, he was very healthy and worked out daily. This is a post warning all of you out there to just be very careful what "supplements" you purchase and injest or inject. I truly believe that my husband's consumption of "anything that will help him build muscle" was a contributor, if not the cause of his untimely death. He was 40 years old.
This message is not an intent to blame anyone, but a general warning to other body builders like my now deceased husband.
If anyone has any questions, you may personally e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is stunning.Originally Posted by The Reporter
Kasey, I know many here will join in to tell you that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Thank you for sharing this, as saddening as it is. Please inform us if there is anything we can do to help or support you.
***perhaps this will warrant a separate thread...
