    Thanks guys! I will start at 3-4grams ED. I know in some of the research studies they used 6-8grams which I thought was a bit excessive.

    Does it have to all be pre workout to get the ergogenic benefits of it ?

    It's best to use it preworkout, though you may derive benefits later in the day as well. You're likely getting more of the NO-dependent benefits and less of the renal, ergogenic benefits

    True but I primarily use it for NO - 5g along with Agmatine and Creatine nitrate is just right

    Since I'm looking for the ergogenic (strength) benefit I should be going with a minimum of 6grams?

    studies show 6-10g to get the MOST effects, however when using it in conjunction with other ingredients like agmatine, norvaline, and other NO boosters, a lesser dose shows great results.

    you must indeed be a true fan!!! for it to be cost effective for me i might try 8-10gms 3x week before workouts, and 3gms rest of the week. but like vaughn said, when using agmatine with it less is needed.

    I don't usually combine it with others, but when I do I will dose on the lower end of that range.

    I usually run between 8-9g per day when I use it. I like to use it everyday personally I just feel like I get a better benefit from it. Its a great product and I would suggest stacking it with something strong to really get the best benefit from it.

    When it is time for my next Enhanced if am looking forward to adding this high dose of CM to it, because my arms had this too on Enhanced without the CM. Therefore that brilliant combination is one that I should like very much.

    Adding CM to Enhanced would make for a painful pump. The pumps I get from 1.5 scoops Enhanced are insane (I like it )

    what is good is that both agmatine and cit mal are so reasonably priced....around a year or 2 ago gplc was the big craze, but that stuff was ridiculous in how high priced it was...dollar for dollar agmatine and cit mal far exceed gplc.

    effective products reasonably priced.....gotta love it!!!
