Quick Review of Stim-X/AMP/Gakic
No I didn't use these all at once. I recieved samples of each through the mail and used them over a period of a couple of weeks.
Stim-X: Used this on four seperate occasions. First use was the worst. Within an hour or so of ingesting and during my workout, I noticed nausea, upset stomach, and lethargy. After a set of leg presses I nearly fell over and it took me a few minutes to regain my bearings. Second time I felt nothing too noticable. Hard to say if it even did anything at all. Third time, once again I became nauseous before my workout and started feeling noticably better as the workout went on. Today, I took the final cap and felt pretty good and my energy level seemed somewhat elevated. Overall, I did not like it. The results were too varied and I didn't like the fact that nausea could be a possible side effect. I also didn't like the low effect on energy levels. I like the wired feeling of ephedrine, but whatever.
AMP: Ummm, two caps of AMP, two seperate times and nothing noticable whatsoever. Could be I didn't use enough, but I will never know because that was the first and last time I will ever use AMP.
Gakic: Hah! MT is junk and so is this. I think I felt 10% weaker during my workout. Another garbage supplement brought to you by Muscle Tech.
So basically I discovered three more supplements I don't have to waste my money on. Sweet.

AMP and StimX give me the same results except they kill my appetite which is what I use them for.

I will add that Stim-X killed my appetite that first time. Other than that, nodda.

Strange Nate, I've noticed nausea cures my appitite too.

You didn't feel a certain "focus" on what you had to do after taking amp?

To notice any energy effects you will need to take either 2 stim x caps or 4 caps of erhopharm amp. I love both products but I would have to agree with you that the Gakic is junk.

The more stimX I take the more I feel "icky". One pill does the same appetite suppression as 2 does without the ickyness.

Yeah, I "focused" on how much AMP didn't work for me.

I love both Amp and StimX. Amp is better at first. But, StimX is better as you take it, in my experience.
GAKIC didn't do sh*t as far as strength. I took it within the 2 hr. half life, added 10% to my weights, but couldn't get the desired reps.

Just one of those things I guess. Maybe I expect too much out of supplements? Anywho, the way I see it is that I'm fortunate enough not to respond to much so I tend to save some money because of it. Just protein, multi's and EFA's for me (most of the time anyways).

AMP definitely works for me. 2 caps worked at first, but now I need 3. I haven't tried yet.
I've tried 2 caps of Stim X (sample). I did feel a bit nauseous, but nothing too extreme. That stuff definitely gave me energy focus. Maybe I'm just sensitive to these things, or maybe you shoved them in the wrong orifice

You mean you don't take them anally?

Whats wrong with good old ephedra + caffeine? I cant go wrong with that. I love it.

Nothing at all. Still my favorite pre workout stim.
