I suppose, but how long are you working out for? It should keep you buzzed for 1+ hours, and you really don't want to be lifting weights too much longer than that. I guess sip on some in the early part of your workout for a prolonged caffeine rush, but I think your training session is too long.

Yes; try 1.5-2 scoops. It should keep you amped up through your workout. Are you training weights for 2 hours? That's going to cause some serious cortisol release; I hope you're taking something for that. PS, 7-OH, Adaptogens, Vit C, etc.

Ya those supps are good but i definitely have to agree with steveo that your workouts are too long. 1.5 is like max in my opinion and then some cardio. What is your training schedule like? I'm quite curious.

sun - fri.
cardio 6 times a week.
it would be something like...
mon - chest /arms
maybe some machine decline or incline
curls - various differnt types
lots o stuff, I dont know the names of alot of these
lots of high rows, low rows, dumbbell pulls, lat pull downs
and then shoulder stuff.
thurs - chest/arms, or shoulders/back, maybe chest/back or arms/shoulders
depends on what I feel is weakest that day.
friday - depletion workout, full body lots o reps.
sat - refeed
I do cardio on all these days, HIIT, low intesive,long distance or stairs.

I run one scoop preWO and 0.5 scoops intraWO - very early am, keeps me humming throughout the day.

Hmm, sounds like you're doing a bit too much, but if you're still gaining in strength and mass then keep doing what's working for you. Those supplements help, but really I don't feel you should do weight much longer than an hour, and then some cardio after that if you wish.

Well you can bring in water, but you can also grab like a colored nalgene bottle or some bottle that has color to it and then u can bring in mixed drinks ^_^ thats what i do haha. As as for you results for a month good progress man. This is my current training schedule and actually many of my friends have started using it, i mean nothing special but its organized and makes sense.
Sun - Back
tues - bi & tri (arms)
wednes - Legs & shoulders
then 2 days off and i repeat. i would suggest something similiar to this. Works great for me at least.
I toss in cardio and abs as i like.

Also for the question of taking jack3d intra. Since it takes about 30-45min for supplements to kick in you could try taking 3/4 scoop 30-45min before w/o and then before you leave to workout take another 3/4 scoop and then that will kick in a bit into your workout.

I wouldn't see a problem in that but make sure and check the Nutrition Facts to be sure that your not taking to much of certain ingredients. Having explosive diarrhea at the gym isn't very fun lol

Honestly Jacked doesnt take 30-45 minutes for it to kick in with me...as soon as i drink it I get a hyped feeling...which could be a placebo, but I know the energy doesn't take half an hour

And as for taking Jack3d during your workout...I wouldn't...there are a bunch of intra-workout supplements out there, and Jack3d is definitely a pre-workout supplement. You're better of taking some BCAA's and EAA's with some sugar and creatine mono. during your workout....
Just my 2 cents

reps usually go 8 - 10 and can go anywhere from 3 - 5 sets. I usually just do as many as I can. depending on how much weight I got and stuff like that.
I dont write my workouts down, but im gonna start sunday. So i can give you a definitive answer then. I can only say thats its no joke. I lift hard, heavy, lots of sets and lots of reps.
Some of my buddies dont even want to work out with me cuz they think im too intense.
This although is the hardest I have ever worked out, and I only started doing this HARD about 4 weeks ago.
so take it for what you will, dont know how long I can keep it up but im gonna keep doing it until I cant.
I am although going to take the other users suggestion and try his 1 muscle group per day. See how I like it, Im getting some crazy gains too. 1 month ago I couldnt do 225 on deads not one time. Im getting 315 now 5x.
I think i got some muscle memory going on there tho.
Oh and this is not counting my depletion, which on friday I stretch everything to 20 reps to failure.

Just keep up the hard work. I would think you would see better gains if you didn't train as long, and cut it down to 3 or 4 exercises per body part. But if you're gaining strength and muscle mass the way it is now, just keep doing what you're doing until your body gets used to it.
