RPM for athletes?
Would RPM be an ideal product for athletes? Everything about the product looks amazing except for the fact that many people report an increase in sweating and body temperature. I train in 90+ degree weather and cannot afford to cramp up and become dehydrated. Are there any athletes such as basketball, football, tennis, soccer players out there currently taking it? THANK YOU

I haven't tried it myself, but based on the reviews I think RPM would be ideal for an athlete involved in football, basketball, track, soccer, etc. due to the increased aggression and stamina properties of the product.
I imagine it would be perfect for a day you may be feeling lethargic or a little out of it. I used to play basketball, and any increase in aggression was definately always a welcome characteristic.
If you're worried about dehydration or cramping, I highly recommend trying out Poseidon; it rocks.
I seriously used to have to drink 5 bottles of water to get the same hydrated feeling as 16 oz. of water with 1 scoop Poseidon.

as with anything proper hydration is important. you can cramp up from anything
this isnt a crazy off the wall stim. as long as your drink plenty of fluid
you will be on point

RPM is a STELLAR product for athletes. Once you train with it, it's hard to train without it.
As mentioned above, Poseidon is a must for anyone on any type of exercise program IMHO...I am a bit biased though so I'll let the reviews speak for themselves.

Off days, 2-3 in the early AM on an empty stomach.
This is strictly what I would do, with my RPM experience.
Does this answer your question?

Ok so how does this scenario look. I would be taking 3 caps according to my bodyweight.
Wakeup at 8 am take 3 caps....eat maybe bagel and banana 45 minutes later. train 1:15 hr after dose. Training time for about 2 hours. Eat again and rest for 2 hours before my next training session which would be another 2-3 hours. How would i take my 2nd dose with this scenario? I've always had trouble finding something that would let me train hard for 2 sessions.

I'd go 1 cap about 30 min before the second workout. There will still be adequate effects going on from the first dosing, that a single cap should be an effective kickstart so to speak.

I did a hour long chest day on monday in the morning about 10am and took 5rpm then later that day around 6 took 4rpm for 45min cardio! That was a wild day to say the least. I ran 3 miles like it was nothing.

hah nice....u notice any cramping or dehydration? also it says that your muscles will feel harder....does this mean that you will stiffen up? My muscles need to be lose and flexible in my sport so that is a major concern...Thank you everyone for your replies.

I would also like to know how this product compares to 17hd by vyotech.. I know that there is a lot of bashing on 17hd but it seems to work for me as far as energy, strength, stamina, and straight up athleticism. Any way these could be taken together? Not planning on doing so but just wondering incase I decide to.

You are a man of many questions! A full dose later in the same day is not necessarily recommended, but won't be harmful. I'd give at least 5-6 hours time between however. Taking 2 full doses/day in my opinion, will be a waste of money, long term.
17-HD works for some as an effective stimulant, but there is nothing there that will accomplish anything else. There's a thread on BBcom that details a breakdown of the ingredients and actually shows it will be detrimental to long term muscle gains. If you get some RPM, I'd completely drop 17-HD and never waste another dime on it. Note: Further proof it's junk: Vyotech won't tell you a single damned scientific piece of evidence to back the product, let alone answer questions at all on it.
Drink plenty of water, and you will have no issues with cramping. Muscle hardening does not refer to cramping.... it refers to denser muscle feel.
