    But getting past that, the energy i had in the gym was unreal. I ploughed through 18 sets comfortably. I felt i could have done the workout once again straight after.

    I suppose the tingling is dose related and everybody reacts slightly different to it but if you can live with it, the energy you will have in the gym will make it so worthwhile.

    I actually used CNP 'pro-slam' which is a pre workout formula which contains 27g of protein, 1.5 of BA aswel as taurine.
    It usually subsides over time, but if you find it bothersome, don't take it preWO. The most important thing with BA it to take it daily, as it has cummulative effects.

    How do you all time and dose Beta-Alanine? I take about 8 grams a day, pre and post workout. I feel like I am either not getting enough or I should spread it out more.

    Thoughts?

    8 grams a day is on the high side, you may be able to use less and still get good results. I usually dose at breakfast, pre-post workout, and later in the day. Currently i am taking 1 with breakfast, on workout days i have my intrabolic(3.2 grams), and 1 gram with dinner or prebed meal. And on off days i just take 4 grams with 2 in the morning and 2 later in the day. Also i try to take my doses with carbs as that increases the effectiveness.

    You're certainly getting more than enough and I personally wouldn't bother going over 6g a day, beyond the first 2-4 weeks. After the first month, 4-5g's is plenty and higher dosing wont make a difference, especially when you get into month 2,3 and beyond. The only real advantage to using 6g a day is in the first month, in terms of raising CARN levels faster, but it all even out, once you get in month 2,3 and beyond.

    I would split your doses into 2g, 2-3x per day.

    But you would defiantly recommend spreading the doses out? I might go 2-Breakfast, 2-Pre, 2 Post, and perhaps 2 before bed???????

    Yes, the only time I would take more than 2g per dose, would be sipping/trickling it in during my workout, when blood flow is higher and cellular uptake is highly sensitive.And even than, I likely wouldn't go more than 3-3.5g. Having 4g hit you at one time, is going to cause much of it to be wasted, as we have a limited capacity in how fast our cells can absorb it at one time and it clear s from the blood very fast.

    How do you like the pro slam? I am testing it out as a protein source and I feel the tingle with it.
