Have been strength training for a year. First six months were no supplements. Good routine/diet/rest. Typical results.
As weight increased I started trying some supplements to further increase workout capacity:
BCAAs(like in the old days) no effects except perhaps less soreness. Could be tied to other factors as well.
Tried for cardio days. Works well. No negative side effects. About 15ml(one tablespoon) of the 1500 liquid version. Much energy.
Tried Creatine. Felt wonderful during workouts. Loaded slowly so no bloating. Much focus-perhaps it was other ingredients in the mix as it was BF's version and they add other items. , ,etc.
So far so good....
Tried some Aspartic Acid for one month with no results.
Tried twice. 500mg along with a low dose of . Had too much nervous energy. See my older postings here for details. Had to stop and I was using considerably less than typical for my weight which is 175lbs. It was explained in that post that BA can have effects on certain people. Well, I am one of those.
Then tried RJ100 Tongkat Ali once, about 135mgs. Felt like I was on cocaine without the rapid heart rate. Insane and uncontrollable amount of energy. I was unstoppable for about 5 hours. Felt like those Beserker Vikings you read about or see on TV. This is also less than typical dosage for my weight.
I have to ask if any of you have had similar excessive reactions from supplements. Usually these are pre-workouts. I admit to being leery of stimulants now due to what has occurred above in the two last instances. I just do not read here cases where a stim/supp was too much for the user unless an excessive amount is taken or mixed with other components.
