    Typical doses are usually 500mg-1g.

    Usually taken:
    1) All first thing in the morning.
    2) Split dose in the morning and pre-workout.
    3) Only pre-workout.
    4) Pre-workout and post workout.
    5) Any of the above plus before bed.
    6) etc.

    It is a very versatile supplement and I suggest you try several different dosing schemes and amounts to find what is optimal for you and depending on what your goals are at this time. I personally use some in the morning after I wake up and some before bed (I also do not use it solely to increase pumps, but taking it in the morning still provides me some pretty incredible pumps even when I workout later in the day).

    There are ingredients that could potentiate agmatine but arginine is not one of them.

    I wasn't saying that they were in there to potentiate agmatine or arginine nitrate....i just think they would provide pumps through different pathways unless that's completely off base

    Ah, I missed the nitrate part. In that case, yes they would provide pumps in different ways, and I'd be interested in trying that product. Any ETA?

    I have heard of people doing this with good results.

    Hmm I have a few 50mg and a few 100 mg viagras wonder if I should try this sometime with the 50 and then with the 100

    Thanks for the reminder! I was 5 min in to a huge plate of beef and potatoes and forgot to dose my Agmatine!


    PS - Mr Cooper knows his shxt on Agmatine... he gave me a fair warning about taking too high of a dose while fasting... the other day i took 1g before leaving the house because I was planning on getting some ****ty food while out running around. Made one stop before hand and ended up at the store for an hour... shortly after about an hour I actually felt extremely close to passing out. Like I was afraid to walk for about 5 minutes holding on to a rail. Then I got to the checkout and some stupid people were talking to the cashier and taking forever... my rage flew through the roof cause I thought I was going to bite the dust and hit the floor... I immediately left and got the first food I saw... Mcdonalds and I was then much better...

    Stuff ends up being no joke! Im only taking it on high carb days that for sure!

    I'm not too big on the idea of doing deadlifts and bending my penis downward to the point of breaking it off because I have a raging boner when I try to lower the weight back to the floor... hahahaha

    You know it's hard to say with an ETA in the supplement industry. The company that's making it does non-proprietary blend products and spends a lot of time testing and tinkering with flavor variations to make sure it comes out just right. I would say 3-5 months? and even then that's just a guess but it's gonna be sweet

  19. On a side note, I took 3g of agmatine split into two doses, am and preworkout. Pumps were sick and vasculaity was much more pronounced

    I have gone up to 2g a day most in the morning with Na-R-ALA before big carb breakfast and some before bed, but have not gone up to 3g. Probably gonna experiment with some higher dosing soon

    Anyone else have any experience dosing at these higher levels?

  21. Agmatine is good stuff

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  22. I like using it at 1g about 45 minutes pre workout.

  25. I know I'm pissed I got the hemavol pills and not the powder.
    I may try the agmatine caps about 45 pwo @ 1000 mg.

    Heard a lot of good stuff about hemavol but I need the powder so hits me better/faster what ever.

    U have not been noticing a huge pump like I use to either. Maybe not challenging my self as much anymore... I'll try increasing water first.

    Let me know how that goes for you. Personally, my favorite protocol is quickly becoming 500mg with my preworkout meal (high in carbs; ~3 hours preworkout) and 500mg 30 minutes preworkout.

    Let me know which way works best for you. I think you'll really like the agmatine.

    It can certainly help postworkout as well due to its effects on insulin production. Agmatine is a multi-dimensional ingredient so you have to pick your poison with regards to dosing.

    Yea I think I'm going to do 500mg in the morning and 500 post workout. I don't really care about the pump effects, I'm looking more for the other benefits.

    Try it with a high carb meal at both those times.

    Definitely, looking forward to it. I picked up some Geronova na-rala to go with it, looking foward to that one as well.
