i am a firm believer in cycling supps but i have been looking at
different sites showing H.E.A.T. and none of the bottles say
number of weeks on/off...i was thinking 6 - 8 weeks on with 2 - 4
weeks off. sound good?
Post in the Avant section and I bet you will get a very quick response
My general recommendation is that you can use it twice as long as you would normally use EC (it is much kinder on central adipostatic machinery)
I find that I can't take ECA for the duration of a cutting Macro-cycle without feeling totaly burned out adrenaly. Heat, on the other hand I usually take throughout and find that it is a better fat burner, but that it does not add as much intensity to my workouts as ECA. The problem with ECA is that when I come off I feel dead in the gym, and I feel that much of the extra progress I have made is negated by my depletion. ECA is a great fat burner/pre-workout stim, and it has its place for sure but it is very taxing...Dim
That makes a lot of sense, practically and scientifically, and seems to be pretty much the consensus:
ephedrine/caffeine = stronger norepinephrine response, so naturally a stronger stimulant and a better appetite suppressant, but not a great actual lipolytic (fat-burner).
H.E.A.T. = more balanced NE response compared to elevations in dopamine and /epinephrine, so a better lipolytic and a more benign 'stressor' of the body's adipostatic machinery, but less of a stimulant/anoretic supplement.
