    When you say Fasted Cardio, Do you mean on a empty stomach? If so I have and it works for me.

    Nice. I am under 10% for the first time, but I still want to get lower. I have used RPM for fasted cardio, but not Drive.

    I used to use it like that all the time. It was amazing. Made me look forward to cardio and not want to stop. RPM that is, before fasted cardio.

    sorry for the huge bump but i've been thinking about doing fasted cardio. I'm also using RPM and DRIVE at the moment.

    I take it i'd dose the rpm/drive on waking 60-90mins pre fasted cardio with some bcaa? I'd be using Purple Wraath or xtend. I'd prob chuck in some posidon too.

    Straight after i've finished up the cardio i'd take a protein shake then a meal 30mins later

    this sound alright?

    I do. On days when I'm not doing resistance training after cardio; on those days I take my Drive/RPM just before I start cardio, during, or just after.

    When I first started using Drive and RPM, on resistance training days I dosed pre-cardio AND pre-gym with the Drive (i.e. 2 caps at 0330 and 2 caps at 0500), but only dosed RPM pre-gym (i.e. at 0500), since I was also using other stimulant products (i.e. that contained yohimbine, dosed at 0315); on NON-resistance training days I dosed both Drive and RPM 60 min pre-cardio (i.e. at 0330).

    I will actually be using this dosing timing again from Wednesday (except it will be ~80 min pre (because that is my sweet spot), instead of 60 min pre). It's great for endurance, speed endurance, and speed gains.

    If you don't do resistance training that day or you do your resistance training later in the day, then that sounds fine. You could also dose NeoVar immediately post-cardio with your protein shake and then have your meal 20-30 minutes later

    Sorry for bringing this back up.

    Rosie, I know you are a very knowledgeable person on this, so here goes:

    I have track practice at 7:45am and and I want to dose RPM (3 caps) 45min prior.

    The problem is, I get up at 6:50am, and if I want to dose RPM, I want to do it on an empty stomach. But wouldn't it be detrimental to go to practice without eating?

    I understand that it would be fine to do fasted cardio under moderate intensity, but my practice includes loads of anaerobic work such as sprinting and strength training right after that.

    If you recommend eating something, how do i do so without blunting the effects of RPM? Should I consume a banana 30+ min after RPM?

    Thanks Rosie!

    I'd personally train on an empty stomach, but that's just me. For most others, especially athletes, and in your situation, training fasted is not advisable if you're looking for performance enhancements for competition.

    Dose RPM as soon as you get up, and then eat something LIGHT before your training - you don't need a huge meal, but something like protein and a mix of fast and slow sugars (your coach should really have you primed re pre-training and pre-competition nutrition). Even sit on an energy drink during practice or have BCAAs in your water bottle, or something.

    No worries

    You could always set your alarm for ~90 minutes pre-training and get up, take your RPM dose, and go back to sleep until your usual getting up time as well, and then have something ~15-20 minutes pre-training. Just a thought.
