I am off ofright now, just got back on creatine, and am taking Nitron 5 by EAS. Looks like a good product. Well, I take this prior to my workouts, and I don't think it has any impact on my pump. I take them usually 30-45 minutes after my breakfast. How can I get these things to work? I usually have a great understanding of supplements, but I never seem to get anything out of tablets, whether they're for energy or NO production. Anyone else have this problem?
I appreciate the suggestion, I would love to try anabolic pump but I got this Nitron 5 for free, and I have two bottles. I have tried RPM, and once again, got nothing out of it.
I'd dose the nitron 5 on an empty stomach if possible, and with a decent amount of water.
Yep, most NO's are almost always only effective on an empty stomach.

How empty of a stomach is empty? An hour after eating? Two hours? Two hours is a bit steep in my opinion, leading to catabolism during the workout. I may try taking the NO tablets, when my stomach is empty, just during random times of the day. "Prime" my body...I don't know...just a theory. The problem is, I work out in the morning, at 10:30 usually. I eat breakfast and get done around 9:30. So my pre workout stuff is around 10...so definitely time is cramped and I can't get to bed much earlier than midnight...so idk wtf to do at this rate, lol. I think I am just going to do 2 NO tabs, twice daily, in between meals 2 and 4. We'll see. I am glad I got this stuff for free though, otherwise I'd be pissed. I know that pre workout stuff isn't THAT important, well not necessary at all...but I love the pump, it makes me feel great and is great for motivation.
if morning workouts are the case, then food is definitely more important. 3 years ago i bought into the NO2 craze, took it as instructed perfectly, but because i worked out at night and the last dose was before dinner, i never got a single thing out of it. So that just leaves me to believe that arginine supps are only worth it preworkout. I could be wrong though.
