Thanks to Strategicmove I get to run some RPM. I have run it before a while back. The last time was about 6-8 months ago. What I plan on doing here is running it pre-cardio only. My objective will be fat loss and energy to get through my cardio sessions. As it stands I am doing 60 minutes a day 6 days a week. I will take between 4-6 caps each day 45-60 minutes before my cardio sessions. Sometimes I walk to the gym which is about 4 miles away. Also sometimes I walk home.
To tell the truth I actually used it twice before today. I was testing my tolerance again. At 4 a day it had slight effects but barely noticable. 5 a day was pretty good. So today, the third day I took 6.
Drove to the gym, walked the 4.5 miles home. Using the Life Fitness eliptical machine at the gym I set it for 60 minutes and the "cardio" routine. My average RPMs were between 68-72. My average heart rate was between 148-152. 148 is what I need to keep it at to be the "cardio" routine according to the machine. What I noticed with RPM this time was that it was difficult to keep my heart rate up and as soon as I stoped to take a drink of water it would go down by 20 points and that is only within a 30 second stop to take a drink of water. I also noticed I had plenty of slow twitch muscle energy. I didn't notice endurance as far as not getting out of breath as quickly as normal. Anyway, here is my workout "Summary",
Calories burned :955
Time: 60 minutes
I will update this log as much as I can with noticable effects and noteworthy "stuff".
One more thing, after I took the 6 caps today and went to the bathroom I felt dizzy for a couple minutes and felt like I was gonna pass out. It subsided though after a few mintues. When I took 5 caps this didn't happen. Thinking that this was just a sudden drop in blood pressure. Tommorow maybe I will take just 5. Really I'm not worried about this, should I be?.
