The Reaper Orman Show: ErgoPharm AMP (original)
Serving Size: 2 Capsules
Servings per Container: 45
Amount Per Serving % Daily Value
AMP is a proprietary blend of: Caffeine Anhydrous, ChocamineŽ (Theobroma cacau seed), GeranamineŽ (constituent of Geranium oil), [The ingredients in this proprietary blend contain the following compounds: Caffeine Hnhydrous, Theophylline, Phenethylamine, Theobromine, 1,3-dimethylamylamine, Tyramine, Tetrahydrocarboline, 2-heptanol and Trimethylpyrazine] 625 mg
Total Caffeine (per serving) 140 mg
I bought ErgoPharm's AMP (original) version over the weekend. I am not really that big of a fan on fat burners in general. AMP has the geranamine in it which I respond to pretty well. It works good as an nootropic which leads to a better quality energy vs. yohimbe+caffeine, etc......
I think (2) AMP capsules=1 bottle of Clear Shot geranamine wise. I'm not sure this is just a guess. I liked Clear Shot as well.
I figured I'd just loosely log this product.

I took (4) capsules earlier. I am feeling very warm and sweaty. This has proved to be a bit too much.

Oh yeah, I have Nolva on hand in case I need it.

took 2 caps right before the quarterly meeting we had. Good mood lift+nootropic.
Hopefully by the end of this I will be able to completely shed off the extra fat that I have combined with C-D.

Seems like this product has seen better days on this board, lol.

We have some of this at work still. I'll follow the log. If it's a good one, i might could pick up a bottle of it.

I have a new bottle of AMP2 coming along. The difference between the older stuff and the new stuff is that the older version of AMP (the one I am using) contains Chocoamine. The newer version does not.

I usually drink carb-free, sugar-free energy drinks (for those who know that I like them).
I had my first sugared energy drink last weekend in like 6 months. It was Monster's FIXXED, I think. It was written in Purple. Anyways, I crashed pretty hard on that in about 2 hrs. The sugar+caffeine just plummeted me.
AMP has been extremely clean so far. I take (1) capsule in the morning, then 1-2 throughout the day. There's no need to take more than 2 at a time.

12.5MG gerananime per amp cap, 50mg in a full bottle of clear shot...4 caps equals amount found in one clearshot bottle, i believe.

Yeah I don't actually know the specific geranamine amounts since it is written into it as propriety blend.
So far it has been great. No crashes and it suppressive your appetite like you wouldn't believe it.

the chocoamine has been giving me stomach discomfort from time to time. I believe this is why they removed it from the new AMP2.
If AMP2 works the same as the original AMP minus the stomach discomfort then all is good.

After working all day, I went to attend my evening class. Took an AMP midway through the class. Still sorta fell asleep.
Last night was so-so in the gym after 8 hrs of work+ 3 hrs of night class.
I got to the gym late last night. Trained back.
Pull-ups: 30 for pre-fatigue
Scapular rows: 4x12,10,10,8
Lat Pulldown: 2x15,15
Low Rows: 3x8,8,8
--quit because I was exhausted and went home--
The day was too long to actually be an effective workout.

wasnt there an amp version that came out before the one you are logging? i thought it supposedly contained something illegal and PA had to change the formula
03-19-2008, 02:39 PM
03-19-2008, 03:49 PM
i thought there was a different formula. the first time i used it was awesome i had the best felling ever on a stim. the second time i used it(the bottle you have) it wasnt even half as good.

Towards the end of last semester, I picked up two 90 cap bottles of AMP when they had 30-days-of-sale @ bb.com, and I tried 2 caps off the bat, and NO effects. I mean NO effects as in such little effect - even after an additional 5-6 attempts - I was considering returning it to bb.com but doing that was too much of a hassle and they were only $30 for two bottles, so whatever ..
Anyway, the other morning I found my bottle of AMP in the cabinet and I threw down 4 caps with a glass of water, and THEN the effects were fantastic, and I had great focus as well as energy and no crash > just like back in the day.
Prior to the other day when I took AMP, I had not taken a fat burner product (stims) since last November, so I don't believe that I ought to require TWICE (2X) the dosage I did a couple years back only because my body has adapted to stims. Regardless, I shouldn't require 2X the recommended dosage twice daily of any fat burner out there -> doesn't that say something about the product ?! Some ingredient must have been cut out, or more likely, reduced in dosage ... due to perhaps a high cost ? Hmm, not even that makes sense ..
Perhaps the AMP-version we're talking about was prior to Patrick Arnold's imprisonment . . . hint hint !?

Yes, I believe you are right; I was a Senior in high school - '05 grad .. And I feel ya on the bottle as well; when I first got my bb.com order in the mail, I was kind of like, hmm, that's not the bottle I had last time, what gives ?!
Wonder when this will be cleared up ! LOL
03-19-2008, 11:04 PM
i hope soon. i want to see if the results from this bottle is the same as the one we had. if so i am going to buy a lifetime supply.lol
(sorry reaper for hijacking your thread)
03-20-2008, 07:22 AM
No worries. In regards to dosing:
Unless you are tremendously sensative to stims, 1 cap is useless to take. I need to take atleast 2-3 if not more.
So far it is a great nootropic. I get quality focus, without the jitters (like the label says).
I'm not sure if this bottle is the stuff you guys are talking about. I am pretty certain it probably is not, but you should try a bottle of what is in the picture and see how you like it.
It is interesting how the heirachy of supplements works. A company releases its original, then changes the formula for the worse. lol.

There was talk about AMP and its relationship to meth, whoever brought that up is correct.
03-20-2008, 07:28 AM
Took 2 caps of AMP pre-workout. I've just been randomly using AMP throughout the day.
-Need significant amount to get effect
-Only 90 caps/bottle
-Slight nausea on empty stomach from time to time.
Deadlifts: 8,6,6 (These should have been done last workout.)
Squats: 20, 10,10,4,4
Leg Extensions: 8,4
Leg Curls: 8,4
Seated calf raise: 20,20,10
Cardio: low impact jogging: 20 minutes
I don't do alot of leg work, as squats pretty much take care of the majority of the workout. My legs are also genetically the best body part and grows easier than my upper.

good i am not dreaming things up then about having an earlier version. the first one i tried was amazing. proabably one of the best euphoric supp i have tried.
i have used the version being logged now and was completely dissappointed. i hate when they change a great a formula and its worse.
03-20-2008, 08:38 AM
This one is red caps with 'AMP' etched into them. Black bottle of course.
03-20-2008, 08:42 AM
ya i tried those. i didnt care for them but i also compared then to the original version. it is still probably great compared to most fatburners though. curious to see what happens in this log.

I don't have a problem!!!!! THEY MAKE ME NORMAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
03-20-2008, 11:30 AM
Well, I think from now on I'm working out solo. I've had a few friends as workout partners and they are great friends, but I hate them as a fellow gym buddies.
03-20-2008, 12:06 PM
And Reaper.. I know what you mean about buddies being the gym-partner -> it rarely works out ! Actually, if I'm working out, I don't want anyone else around me, not even on the bench next to me .. nor the treadmill next to me .. I've got a couple pet peeves like that. If I got someone with me, they're BOUND to slow me down, chit chat - which I never care for ! At the moment, I've got 50-60 seconds in between sets, and there is little to NO information in this world I'd be interested in being enlightened about within that time frame. Avoiding eye contact with the rest of the people at the gym helps, but I've been told I come across as arrogant/cocky by just looking at me - particularly at the gym only because of my 'withdrawing' from the environment and the tunnel vision I've got walking around up there..
