    Keep us updated. I do believe you maybe the first to report such issues. Are you still dosing a full scoop?

    I will keep everyone updated. It could be just a simple bug; I will remain open-minded until further evidence presents itself.

    Hey Rob!
    Thanks for asking - I took the entire day off to rest and watch movies. It rained the entire day anyway. I had to go get some fluid yesterday (IV) to replenish my system better. Man, that was the worst 2 days! I did not take my dose yesterday or today; however, I will brave it tomorrow. I'm really hoping that it's not the Magnesium, or the supplement for that matter. It's feeling relatively normal considering what it's felt like the past few days.
    Once again, thanks for taking the time to ask., when most could care less.

    I did not take any pictures today. Hell, would you if you were in my shoe(s)? Hahahaa! Definitely will tomorrow, no doubt about that. I just don't feel well enough to do so right now. I am going to hook an IV up in an hour and get 1 more bag in for the day. And yes, I do it myself. Given my profession, things of this nature (IV, shot care, etc) are a specialty for me know. The military trained me well! LOL - I am, however, using a butterfly needle for my hook in. Trauma1 will understand that!

  8. Thats sucks Iron, I was about to ask how you were, but dont want it to look like Im just asking after your post, So how you feeling Fukcnut? seriously, Its good to hear its getting better, crazy how your doing your own IV's man.. were you a Med Tech? just curious to what you have maybe found out, but what is the safest max dose for Magnesium? Im finding all sorts of amounts right now..

  9. you having any diarrhea and abdominal cramping?

    eeek! I hate needles, even if they sound pretty like a 'butterfly'..
    Probably the real reason I never did gear right there -- I'm a big sissy!
    And hey, just make sure you don't have any 'tainted' B12 from Miguel Tejada in that IV man..

  11. Curious have you ever had this reaction to Magnesium prior?? Have you used other pre workout product that have Magnesium with similar results??

  12. * Here's a quick picture; I will post more later.

    The first one that comes to mind would be JP8. I did not have any issues with that one, or any other pre workout powder that I can note.

    I will update everyone later; no issues today. I have not dosed yet, but will do so in a few hours before my workout.

    Sorry to hear about the illness, buddy. Hopefully it's just some sort of gastroenteritis and will pass.

    When it comes to IV's, i have no problem saying i have some pretty damn good skills. I'd have used something large bore, like a 16 gauge angiocath on you, soldier, haha.

    Get well soon, buddy.

    Well I ask because the Magnesium amount in ULTIMA is quite low with others like SP250 No-Xplode and the like when you start taking multiple scoops of those it can reach over a gram. So I'm thinking you may have a bug or something totally unrelated to the product. I'm not discounting the idea though.

    Of course; however, I have not said that it is definitely the product. I am leaning toward a bug, but just keeping my options of pin-pointing the problem open. Hell, I hope it is indeed a bug.

    Oh I understand and wasn't saying you did. As I said I wasn't discounting the idea as I know some are very sensitive to Magnesium.

  18. Good to finally see a pic of ya Lungz!
    You look lean & in great shape. Kudos.

  19. Lookin lean and mean, Fin!

  20. Hey Iron,

    Are you taking any kind of multi-vitamin or any other supplement high in magnesium?

    While it is certainly possible ULTIMA could be te culprit, I would say it is unlikely. Albion dosed the MCC as high as 8 grams without GI issues, and we have had no instanced or problems oursleves, thus far.

    If possible, try taking with a little food and see if that helps.

    Agreed. I am dosing in 20 minutes, then hiting the gym. Update will follow this afternoon.

    Thanks, Snag! Like I said, I am no Body Builder, rather a fitness enthusiast. I'll get some Back and Leg pictures up at some point. I am also going to start including some food pics as well. (Taking a page out of your book )

    Nope, Ultima is the only runner right now. I discontinue all other supplements when I run something Sponsored. I am dosing it with my mid-morning protein/fruit today - so we will see.
    But, from what I understand, there is a stomach bug going around so it may just be that.

  23. Looking solid, my friend!

    That is Ranger style there baby, taking care of yourself and your comrades if they needed it even if you did not have a medical background (good old first aid/buddy aid). On another note, sorry for being so late on this thread. I will be keeping an eye on you there fellow Ranger. Making sure you are ok, and seeing how this supp pans out. Hooah.

  25. Where are you located Iron? I am planning to start back rucking a few miles a week, would be nice to team up with someone. I plan to keep my ruck light, maybe a 60-100lbs. One day on flat terrain, and maybe 2 cross country. I hope I can maintain the 4km or more an hour standard. Anyone in the Houston Texas or surrounding areas that wanna go rucking hit me up.
