    so, woke up this morning....


    and my arms were pumped? i've been using agmatine at 1g e/d now for 3 days, i think it's starting to kick in. I've never woke up with pumped arms when im not on cycle.

    oh, didn't lift yesterday, but the day before.

    anyone else experience this?

    Absolutely, I know what you mean. I take 1g of agamtine 15 mins before my high carb breakfast and feel the the pumps all day long. The effects will continue to get better, just not the pump; i.e. mood and endurance

    Does the pump ever die after use?

    Is it like a creatine bloat?

    Doesn't seem like it especially when throwing Hemavol in the mix also. Pumps are there to stay

    Not at all. If taken before high carb meal it can actually help with bloating and nutrient absorption

    I'm not sure it's a good thing to wake up with your arms pumped with blood...

    he is right hook.

    anywho, care to elaborate on why it may not be a good thing?

    also, i stretched first, so that could of had something to do with it?

    had a great back/arm workout, good stuff, good pump, nice energy in the gym today.

    I use agmatine in the AM with a high carb meal and get increased fullness all day.

    Use it preworkout and my workout pump lasts much, much longer.

    I love agmatine and certainly get enhanced pumps but not for all day. It's nice during the workout though!

    This.

    I enjoy 750mg when I wake up and some days I also take 750mg 45mins prior to working out. I thoroughly enjoy Agmatine.

    I've used up to 2g daily, but I don't think there was any major difference. 1-1.5g is the sweet spot IME. 1g non workout days, 1.5g on workout days

    ...how do you normally spread that out thru the day? 1.5g preWO....or 1g preWO...then 500mg pre bed...or 250mg before 2 other meals on workout days?

    1g per day = 500mg in the morning, 500mg pre cardio
    1.5g per day = 500mg morning, 1g pre weightlifting

    Makes me feel awesome

    Wouldn't be able to tell you. I've only tried 3:

    SNS Agmatine and MAN Blueprint worked very well.
    Musclefeast's didn't do anything for me.
