    Should trans-dermals be taken right before working out?


    Is it possible to sweat T-1 (or T-1 pro) off your body before you completely absorb the ingredients?

    I would try to wait at least 30 minutes before any activity that involves major sweating (as in very wet). It depends on where you put it, and where you sweat the most, but it's not ideal if very sweaty (or something like swimming obviously).

    right. however, after apply an hour or two before working out, percipitation causes even more absorption from the ph residue left on the skin, that hasnt yet been absorbed. try to apply an hour before hitting the gym. Sage

    Sage is right. Actually sweating is good. The way the transdermal is absobed with the solution is through the SC. BUT when you sweat it opens the pores and some ph can go through there. That is way when its on your skin and you sweat it starts to burn agin. Its a bonus... Like I said before "Sweat like a pig and grow big"... hehehe Talk to ya..

    So would it be beneficial to apply right after a hot shower when your pores are open

    The only thing is you'd want to take a shower after working out, and then you'd wash it off...
