  3. lol^ umm i was thinking something diff. not sure what though

  4. Your logic is backwards; instead of looking for something to compensate for a lack of sleep, you should look for a good sleep aid.

  5. Yes but that might not be enuf u know what i mean i was looking online at GNC what do you think about these :

  6. Bulk 1-Carboxy from NP, another good sleepy-time enhancer.

    I've gotta go with Rodja on this one, this is probably the smartest thing to do.. but, if you must have a stim, why not just get some caffeine?

  7. but wont you get a crash from caffeine later on and then your back to where you started even worse rite??

  8. not necessarily.

  9. but thats what i heard, how long would it last the high energy feeling?

  10. Caffeine and Bulk Chocamine, both from NP..

    The caffeine for the initial energy boost, and the slower-acting chocamine to make SURE that you don't crash as the day goes.

    I can't really comment on how long it'll last, that depends on your body.

  11. could you post a link for the Bulk Chocamine ill try n search it

  12. ya, just one second...

    here ya go, the caffeine and the chocamine:

    Chocamine Powder (100 grams) By: NutraPlanet

  13. Drink some grapefruit juice with it to prolong the effects.

  14. nice thanks ^

  15. I use FocusXT morn or mid day before school. sic energy burst & focus. BUT if you are sensitive to stims, keep any caffeine intake around 200mg to be safe and avoid any crash or to quick of tolerance build up.
    I tend to associate caffeine with more of a awake feel but, i tend to lose focus on it. Im awake, but my mind wanders.
    I usually hit about 600mgs a day if im feelin like it. i been tryint ot stay at 200mg.

    Good luck.

    PS-I agree. it starts at sleep.

  16. I practically live on Spike Shooters. Nice clean energy, no crash.

    I haven't tried the pills yet, but friends have said the exact same thing about them, lots of focus, non-jittery and no crash. They are programmers that stare at code all day, so unfocused and jittery is NOT good.

    A good nights sleep is key too, 1-C, melatonin and ZMA knocks me the hell out. Its the morning grogginess that I utilize the shooters for.
    “Besides, it is a disgrace to grow old through sheer carelessness before seeing what manner of man you may become by developing your bodily strength and beauty to their highest limit.”

  17. im up on amp, rpm, and green tea all day. serves a body well.

  18. Morning caffeine is a bad idea, wish I never had it in high school.

    Focus on getting good sleep, do anything to get it, 1carboxy is awesome.

    don't post links to GNC and start buying your supplements at

    Get some Xtend, put a few scoops in a gallon of water and drink throughout the day. Also make sure you are getting more sleep. You need 7-10 hrs of sleep a night at your age.

  20. I agree with most of the guys here that you should mostly focus on getting more/better sleep too, but I know how it is when you just need a boost.

    BLAST is great for the boost with no crash to follow.


  21. Better sleep will result in more quality awake time. I've been a fan of melatonin 3mg caps for a while, but Abyss (Nimbus Nutrition) has also worked wonders for my wife and I.

    If after attempting better sleep you still find that you need a morning kick in the ass, look up Stimulant X....long-lasting with no crash. (Oops, I pimped... )

    Best of luck to you, though. I know how it is. I hated early classes in college and made sure not to schedule anything before 10:00!! Coffee became my friend, but never quite lasted long enough before I had to go back for more!

  22. While I think the sleep advice is a good, practical idea, I don't think that is what he was looking for guys. I place primacy on sleep in my training schedule, and in a perfect world I would get my eight hours each night without interruption, but that is not the case.

    Try a caffeine-free mixture like Poseidon, or construct your own privileging antioxidant and amino acid use for stable energy.

    Some ingredients to consider:

    Selenium (in specific forms)
    Manganese Gluconate
    Thiamin Hydrochloride
    Grape Seed Extract

    These are all ingredients which will help mediate cognitive function pathways, through mostly alleviation of oxidative stress. You won't necessarily feel 'stimulated' with a Caffeine mixture, but you will feel awake.

    Most definitely take the better sleep advice, but in a fix this should suffice.

  23. thanks a lot for all the help guys.

  24. oh which Extend should i get??

    I'd go for the one marketed as "Xtend" - Scivation. Currently digging the lemon flavor, which says alot cause I don't like lemon flavor.
