is yohimbe a muscle-sparing stimulant?

Stimulants "stimulate" nervous system activity, typically increasing metabolic rate. They aren't inherently catabolic (read: muscle-wasting) substances and don't necessarily breakdown lean tissue.
Also, yohimbine inhibits a2-receptors -- it doesn't activate them. I have never seen research that suggests yohimbine alone increases testosterone levels.
If you were going to use them outside of a cutting or fat loss program, I would just take them when you need a "boost" or just pre-workout.
This site is relevant to my interests.

thanks man, and yeah i was thinking about using them pre workout, only thing i noticed though is they make me VERY edgy, and the longer i take them the more pronounced the effects (long half-life?).
