    agmatine vs. glycerol.


    Which is better? Am I correct in my assumption that agmatine is good for pumps,and also has a nutrient partitioning effect? Glycerol from what I understand hydrates muscle, replenishing glycogen stores and gives great fullness? And finally are they stackable or better taken separately?

    If you are referring to glycerol monostearate, it actually dehydrates the myocyte and brings water into the interstitium (not good). Glycerol won't replenish glycogen stores either, but it will give you an aesthetic pump. Agmatine provides a functional pump through an increase in NO, as well as nutrient partitioning and a mood uplift effect.

    coops a smart guy

    GMS is more for the "aesthetic" pump.......whereas agmatine actually has a lot of other benefits aside from giving a pump

    Glycerol pumps dont last long. Seems like right when the workouts done im pissing every 5 minutes and quickly deflating. Agmatine is good for long lasting pumps. Usually lasts a good bit after the workout and i have a semi-pump for the rest of the day until i go to sleep. Glycerol is cheap as balls and agmatine is a little more expensive, but still very reasonably priced.

    theres quite a few dosing options:

    500mg in the morning with first meal, then 500mg pre workout

    1g pre workout

    500mg pre workout, 500mg pre-post workout meal


    theres a few others, but those would be the "most popular"

    I love agmatine more than my mother. Jk. But agmatine allows my carb intake to increase by 100-150 pounds without any noticeable weight gain.

    Agmatime is better for a workout imo.. but GMS drastically alters my physique for a good period of time in terms of fullness, vascularity, tightness and hardness.

    Lol, it's an expression. Agmatine is best taken with a high carb meal, first thing in the morning, or preworkout.

    Cool. does it act kind of like an insulin mimetic making the carbs store more into the muscles?

    would it aid fatloss at all?

    I take l carntine tartrate and bcaa's first thing upon awaking

    I guess you could put it that way with regards to nutrient partitioning. This makes it great for preserving strength on a cut. Taking a small dose (250mg) of agmatine with your morning BCAAs may not be a bad idea.

    I use 5 tabs of hemavol right when I wake up. Before my workout depending on when it is, I either use maximize v.2, or glycerol + 1g NA + 10g Creatine mono.. gives me some sick pumps.

    great information. I am still learning about it. think I will try this , then take another 500 mgs or up to a gram pre workout as I am on a "cut".

    at the very least Ill take 500 or a gram pre workout because Ive ssen some people, (Mike I think likes this way) say this is the best overall way. I think its splitting hairs on which way is best and so minimal it doesnt matter that much as you can do them both or one or the other.

    truthfully, in the supplement world.. i dont think much matters with how you dose it.
