    I think the supplement you are thinking of is Powertrain by Legal Gear. I havent really heard any reviews on it, but I have been interested in trying it for quite some time. Just basically an ATP supp that has NAD and possibly ATP in it to keep your energy stores up.

    Yeah thats it. I remember they had a lot of people who beta tested it and liked it but I never really heard anything about it after that. What exactly is NAd anyways?

  3. NAD is nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide. In the body it is found as NAD+(positive charge). When it accepts two electrons it becomes NADH which is used in glycolysis to form ATP. NADH helps to keep fueling glycolysis so you can continually produce more ATP for more energy, thats about the jist of it. Here are the ingredients:

    Propriety Blend (948mg): (white willow bark extract, gaurana seed extract, ginger root)
    NADH 21mg

    So I guess it contains NADH which is already in the converted state of NAD+ to keep fueling glycolysis for more energy. I may give it a shot sometime, not too expensive.

  4. Anything you eat is going to have a generous supply of NAD+ bro. It's quite common in all living things.

  5. I actually got a bottle of powertrain back in the day. As for a pre-workout it would be very very mild if not useless. What it was good for was performing with little sleep. You could sleep two hours take around 8 to 10 powertrain though-out the day and feel practically normal. Unfortunatly If I took them when I already felt normal (not sellf-deprived)... well I just felt normal... nothing. Great for exam week not for workouts.

    how do you like the mallate though? does it really help? I was thinking of doing
    Alcar
    cit mallate
    glucoronolactone
    caffeine (on some days)
    If price is an issue I would skip the Citrulline malate as there are most cost effective options. Something like:

    3g CEE ($35 a kilo)
    1.5G ALCAR ($45 a kilo)
    3g Choline ($35 a kilo)
    2g Tyrosine ($40 a kilo)
    2g Betaine (cheap)
    5g Taurine ($25 a kilo)

    actually works out pretty damn cheap. Probably cheaper than what you mentioned above.

  7. anyway you can pre-mix those meat? Or is the consistency too different (ie fluffy l-tyro and grainy betaine etc) I do the same **** but it gets tiring opening 6 different powders and measuring them out. So i usually try to limit the number I use.

  8. I premix everything I use. As long as you shake the hell out of them every couple of days you should get a good balance. Just work out how much u'd need for say 50 doses of each and chuck it in a tub, shake like hell, and voila..

  9. Now that's ingenuity

  10. EDIT: This isn't Ebay.

    pestel and mortar work well too.

    If you do it in little increments.

    Say 250 grams at a time. Wouldn't take more than 10 mins. Yes, a bit more work but very doable and you definitely ensure a more even, blended mix.

  14. def. doing that from now on......any powders to avoid?

  15. don't pre-mix the super-nasty stuff with what you want to make a good pre-workout drink or whatever. JMO, but I'm not gonna be happy sipping anything with green tea powder or sulbutiamine mixed all in it. I have a good mix of mild and tasteless goodies, but I ingest the nasties separately.

  16. bang out 2pac and loud as possible. just coffee for me
    Sage

  17. Taurine is very fluffy and sticks to the top of your mouth so I take it seperately to avoid having the other ****ty tastes lingering.

  18. That's a great stack and i had something similar with the first 5 items only; I's love to add my Ephedrine but was told not to use with CM as they were opposites.

    0.7g histidine
    1.8g beta alanine
    1.5g ALCAR
    2g Tyrosine
    2g choline
    300mg DMAE
    1 HGV(huperzine vinpocetine gingko)
    3g betaine HCL
    37.5mg Ephedrine
    250mg caffeine

  19. I have been using Redline by VPX and it just kicks me right into gear. Start with a half a can man this stuff is potent

  20. I am going to have to vote for camphibolic, but it's not really pre-workout.
    By taking it daily you are amped when you need to be (for me that means at the gym, playing sports, etc.)
    it definitely has given me more energy throughout the whole day.

  21. Some of my favorites San's Tight, Lipo 6, EC stack with 3 grams of CM
