    yes but i heard it increases muscle mass while burning fat, thats why i thought it would be good in a bulking cycle and i dont know where to get r-ala in new york. ala is readily accessible to me so that why i want to use ala instead. but i was wondering if it wud have a synergestic effect using the two. ala and cla that is. i'm just concerned with the dosage for both. thanks yordi but any other input would be appreciated

    People do use this stack while bulking with success. However while bulking, if your only going to use two peices of the puzzle, use ALA and Alcar not ALA and CLA. If you can get the Alcar to (which can be gotten for very reasonable pricing) then do all three. Otherwise save the CLA for later.

    windowrd i just clicked on your anarchy stack, i feel so stupid, i didn't know alcar is acetly-l-carnithine, well i'm a newbie to this thing, lol...i go to the stores asking for alcar no wonder nobody knew what i was talking about. i would go do some research on alcar and see if its good for me, i'm an ectomorph i do not wanna lose 2 much fat i dont have in the first place but like i said i'm going for 3,400 cals so maybe it wont matter?

    That should be fine bro. Im not the biggest fan of Mag 10 since you already have it, go with that and the Alcar and ALA and you should have a nice little cycle.

    No dont get GNC ALA. Its not strong enough. You need to take approx 500-600 mg ALA with each meal so get the NOW products as they make 250mg.

    As for the Alcar, also get the NOW brand and take one 500mg capsule per meal to start and increase from there as you see fit.

    500mg per meal of ALA is just fine, even at 6 meals a day. You need to be doing 2-3 grams a day of it.

    As for the Alcar 1.5grams a day is a good starting point in 3 divided doses.

    Not necessarily bro. What you have to understand is that most guys who have used this have all gained weight while loosing body fat. That is amazing. Alcar has SO many other benefits that its worth taking all the time period. It increases focus which is good for training as well. ALA is a nutrient partitioner and will make your bulking cycle more effective in the way that it lends nutrients more to muslce growth than to fat content. I will never bulk again with out it!
