    long distance/marathon runners using viagra?


    This might be a little off topic for this section but I wasn't sure what other section it would be.

    Has anyone else heard of long distance runners/marathon runners using viagra for increased endurance, decreased heart rate, etc...

    And could this be practical for any other sports...?

    (let's keep the jokes to a minimum, we all know what Viagra is traditionally used for. lol)

    Viagra is like a superior NO product with different mechanisms of action. I used it before in the gym and could definitely feel a lot more pump. Viagra usually gives me slight nasal congestion and slight headache (at 100mgs) so I can't understand risking those side-effects for being a marathon runner.

    right. I'm just curious, I don't do marathon and have no desire too, but my friend who does was telling me about it, cause I gave him a sample of "pornstar" from ALRI...

    Vasodialators are the shizz for endurance. I use a strong gingko and vinpocetine supp for strenuous hikes and it helps a lot.

    Most don't remember that Viagra was originally developed for hypertension.

    Try blue gene: ginko, icariin, cissus, and l carnitine, along with other stuff. Great supp.
