    Tried Hemavol, got minimal pump. Tried Anabeta and Glycobol combined for a few days and those pumps were painful. Muscles felt very full

    I didn't get as much from Hemavol as I expected. I preferred MV2 on the whole and pumps were not drastically less than they were from Hemavol.

    I told this to Vaughn and he got grumpy with me.

    Honestly, it was so long ago I am not sure. I would have taken Hemavol with a lot of water due to the GMS. Not sure about timings though, it is more likely to be 90 minutes post food than 120 minutes.

    MV2 was strong. My stimulant tolerance is really high but it gets me going, I bought a tub recently which is on it's way.

    I was going to tell Dusty at BodyPower that you said he would hook me up but I thought he wouldn't believe me and if he asked you probably wouldn't remember saying it lol.

    Is it better to take it this way? I've been getting the best pumps ever in my life by dosing as follows: 60 min preworkout 1/2 plain bagel, 1/2 cup raspberries, 1scoop whey iso; 45 min preworkout 5 g creating mono; 30 min preworkout hemavol, 20 min preworkout 1 g beta alanine, 100 mg caffeine. You got me thinking about trying on empty stomach...

    Everyone is diff. Some people can have food some cant. Im with you. Ive tried every protocol of hemavol out there. It works amazing with and without food. One of my friends says its 100x better on an empty stomach. You can try it for a day.. it wont kill ya!

    Who takes pwo's with food? I don't even know of a pre that instructs you to take with food, 95% of them say "take on empty stomach".
    Taken on an empty stomach, the ingredients go straight to work. Most say take 15-30 mins prior to exercise.

    next time you see him, tell him I said it, and he'll do it. He's a great guy, and he'll double check with me if he's unsure, but i don't tell many to go up to him and specifically ask for something...so he'll know its legit

    Very true, but rarely do I have an empty stomach. I wake, drink my 1 scoop hemavol, eat 30 mins later, take another scoop 30-40 mins later, go to the gym.

    The only "con" with pumps is that they go away

    im the same way; i almost never end up taking my pre-workout goodies on an empty stomach. i make sure to drink plenty of water around ingesting hemavol and whatever else I have mixed up. i know some people say the effects diminish when they have food too close to taking hemavol, but i've never had that problem.

    I also felt like the caffeine pills worked better on empty stomach. Body felt warmer, more flexible, and just had more overall aggression. I increased it to 150 mg too. Don't like going much higher than that, body feels off

    For most people, most things work better on an empty stomach.. I guess I just got lucky!

    I like Hemavol on an empty stomach, caffeine I prefer better around food.
