    AI Sports helps get RickRock PUMPED and RIPPED with Agmatine and Raspberry Ketones!!


    First of all I have to thank Stxnas and the rest of the AI Sports team for giving me the oppurtunity to try out Amatine and Raspberry Ketones. Thanks a lot guys! my package arrived the other day, and I got hooked up very well! I was pleasantly surprised to open the box and find a gym bag, T-shirt, and several samples along with my bottle of Agmatine and Raspberry Ketones.

    For the last several weeks, I have been doing a recomp trying to get down to around 6% bodyfat with the help from some SARMs. It has went excellent for the most part and I cant complain with how the progress has went. With that said, I really need to kill it for the next few weeks to try and meet my goal, and these two should help make my goal more attainable! Right now I am at just under 7% bodyfat at 166-168 lbs. I have been training 7 days a week with about 4-6 hours of cardio per week. I also have been following the IF (Intermittent fasting) protocol and diet for the last year. My workout day cals are around 2800 with my cardio days set around 2k.

    Agmatine


    Ive never tried an Agmatine product, or an Arganine one for that matter. But after looking into it further, it looks like a good fit for what I am doing and I can see that there are far more benefits to Agmatine than I knew of. I'm always looking for that BIG PUMP just like everyone else, but for the added extra effects in body composition,recovery, performance, and endurance make Agmatine a great addition to my recomp goals. Here is a bit of info from the write-up at the AI sports site....

    Walk into any supplement store and the one thing you’re guaranteed to see plastered all over the place are “Nitric Oxide boosters”. Take this product and have “mind blowing pumps and vascularity”. All of these supplements are based on primarily one ingredient – L-Arginine. L-Arginine has been around the supplement industry forever, promising drastic results in vascularity and “the pump”. Unfortunately we’ve all been had. It has been proven that L-Arginine doesn’t promote nitric oxide synthesis, and can actually be harmful if used long term.

    But what about my pumps?!...

    Enter Agmatine: The Next Generation Arginine! What exactly is Agmatine? It is a byproduct of Arginine, essentially Agmatine is Arginine with the carboxylic acid removed.

    The benefits of Agmatine are literally endless, and science is continually finding new applications for the use of Agmatine, not only in Bodybuilding and Fitness, but also in General Health and Longevity.

    • Agmatine acts as an analgesic and anti-inflammatory agent
    • Improved body composition via improved insulin response
    • Positive effects on LH and GH
    • Anxiolytic effects potentially leading to the control of cortisol levels and fat loss
    • Nitric oxide modulation
    • Improved recovery
    • Increased performance
    • Increased endurance
    • Decreased body fat
    • Antioxidant role


    Raspberry Ketones



    Most people have heard about Raspberry Ketones and what their effect can be on fat loss. I've always wanted to try some out, but have never had a chance to, so I'm pretty excited to see how well these can help me drop that last bit of fat with their ability to stimulate fat cells and the added thermogenesis. Here is the info from the AI sports site...

    Product Description

    Raspberry Ketones were originally looked at for their fat loss purposes because of their similar chemical structure to some other very well known fat loss agents. I know you’ve heard of Ephedrine.
    Researchers found that supplementing with Raspberry ketones, more hormone sensitive lipase (HSL), makes it into the vesicles that fat cells store their fatty acids. Raspberry ketones directly stimulate fat cells to mobilize and excrete their fatty acids, resulting in fat loss.
    Product highlights:
    1. Increased fat loss
    2. Increased themogenesis

    Christ -- the progress you've made in the last year is incredible. Definitely makes me want to stop being complacent and lazy with my "carrying some extra fat is okay b/c it's winter" excuses.

    I train fasted everyday. I workout at around 6-6:30 AM each morning, and break fast at noon. BCAAs are taken preworkout, post workout, and 2 hours before breaking fast (10am)

    I didn't know AI had Agmatine, lots of good feedback on it. I am sort of perplexed on some of the dosing instructions. I can't get my head around what the morning dose is all about, why not just dose it all pre-workout. Do you only use this on workout days?

    Agmatine is one of those supplements you want to play with when you dose.

    I dose morning at 500mg and then on work out days I take 500mg pre workout.

    I tried doing the 1000mg pre workout but the pumps were too much. Taking it in the morning at 500mg you gain all day pumps and some health benefits from it. Also after a week or so I get a slight well being feeling from it. Agmatine daily is also suppose to help with nutrition partitioning.

    I tell people if they try Agmatine it's best to play with the dose to you find what works for you. Some people take 1500mg pre workout, but for me that would be painful to work out like that.

    Thanks to everyone who has joined!!

    This morning was first workout on Agmatine. I started out waking up this morning a little heavier than expected (169) and noticeably retaining some water with a little bloat. My diet was very clean yesterday, but I did have a little bit more carbs than normal and sodium was a little higher too. So I started out looking very full already heading into the gym.

    I decided to go with the full 4 cap dose of Agmatine preworkout, and I do have to say it is some incredible stuff for pumps! After about 15-20 minutes of lifting my arms and chest really tightened up a lot, and they felt saturated with blood. It was a very similar feeling to the pumps you can get on cycle and almost as good. Another thing is that right now I am a good 2.5 hours past the end of my workout, and I STILL have a pretty good pump going! If this is the start of how Agmatine is going to be, I think I'm really going to like it!!

    I have been wondering though, just like DW said, how often I should dose Agmatine? It obviously shows how great it is preworkout, but what about cardio and rest days? I've been thinking of just doing preworkout on it to get the most out of it, unless someone can give me a good reason why I should dose it daily

    I will be starting the Raspberry ketones today also, and since I do IF, and only eat 2 meals per day, I am going to dose it 2 caps 30 minutes before my fast breaker and the same for my last meal at the same time I take my nutrient partitioner.

    Yeah I stagger my dose for pre's. I do Agmatine 45 minutes prior, then I do my stim or anabolic ignite combo 30 minutes prior. That 15 minutes just seems to help me avoid some stomach discomfort sometimes.

    I did all together today with the full dose of Agmatine with my preworkout and didn't have any stomach problems so I will probably just continue that way

    I am here to follow along Brother! Funny that you and i are eating the same caloric intake mine as a maintenance and yours as a cut when I outweigh you by over 30 lbs. Probably same reason you lift same weight as me and I outweigh you by that much.

    I am here to follow along Brother! Funny that you and i are eating the same caloric intake mine as a maintenance and yours as a cut when I outweigh you by over 30 lbs. Probably same reason you lift same weight as me and I outweigh you by that much.
    Glad you are here Chris! Yeh it is funny that we are at the same caloric level right now. I have probably another 2 or 3 weeks and then I will be bumping it up some by a couple hundred to burn and build days both. By then I should hopefully hit my bodyfat goal of around 6% and can then maintain it while trying to slowly add the muscle

    Mine should be coming in today, I am going to go 5mg am and 5 preworkout and on my fastted morning Saturday I will experiement with 10mg... I have some Creatine Nitrate also but almost afraid to mix this in lest I blow up.. Maybe with the lower dosages of agmatine during the week.

    I've been reading of people dosing agmatine pre-workout and at bedtime. Anyone here using this protocol?
