    EC...... or just E


    I was just wondering if caffeine was absolutely needed or if its just for energy and appetite. Im SUPER lean for my height and am worried too much suppression of appetite will cause rapid weight and muscle loss. I cut well as it is...


    Will just ephedrine be effective alone or are they THAT synergistic?

    Caffeine is needed. Its purpose goes beyond what you think.

    Caffeine inhibits PDE activity and prolongs and enhances thermogensis. PDE inactivates cAMP and inhibits thermogensis so yes caffeine is needed

    I see. I understand caffeine works in various ways just wasnt sure about ec. I thought ephedrine was a thermogenic on its own to a beneficial point. Thanks for the info.

    I also though about clen too. Id like to blast into single digits this summer. I was 10% last year from diet and routine.

    Why are you using EC if you are super lean?

    Genetically speaking I am lean. Limber. Im back up to 11-12% for a winter bulk. Getting to 10 will be easier this year than last but Id really like to get to 10...... then get to 8-9%. EC would be after I hit the same wall. If I dont have to use it I wont. Its very hard for me to cut and retain muscle genetically. I was 6'6" and 170 when I started a few years back.

    If you're already at 11-12% and wanting to hit 10% you probably don't need EC stack. If you're losing muscle cutting 1-2% body fat your training and nutrition should be investigated.

    Getting to 10% isnt what I would use it for. Getting to 8-9% is when it may be helpful.... if I need it. Thats a 3-4% drop and a new realm for me. 10% is no sweat this year, Ill weigh 10-15 lbs more (all natty) and am pretty proud.

    Actually going to hit my first Hdrol cycle before the final cut though, so who knows where Ill be....

    Oh right on, once you start creeping into single digits is when it becomes a different game.

    That halo cycle should help you out big time, keep us posted on your progress!
