RPM Question.

  1. RPM Question.


    Why is it that I do not feel the "Insane Pumps" that everyone talks about from RPM? Am I taking/dosing it wrong? Seems like most of the pump factor comes from the Drive. I notice tightness all over after taking it in the morning and at lunch, but the RPM just doesn't seem to do as much as I thought it would. I take 3 caps on a semi empty stomach 1hr pre-workout. I am using these in my pct if that matters at all. I am taking 6 Drive per day. 2 in the AM, 2 at noon, 2 1hr pre workout. Thanks guys!


  2. it may have something to do with your semi empty stomach.... rpm and drive is suppost to be taken on a totally empty stomach

    I don't know about you all, but if you eat every 2-3 hours like me...Then you are NEVER on an empty stomach.

  4. I eat every 2-3 hours, but I workout in the AM. So I take rpm as soon as i wake up. 5 down the hatch. Pumps and sweating like no other. You could also try just delaying a meal until 45min after taking it. Another thing is upping the dose, I find it just slightly under-dosed for me. I have taken 4 and felt a little energy, but 5 and I am running around the gym like a madman.

    What do you weigh? And wouldn't I be eating 15min prior to working out then? lol. O do you really not need to take 1hr pre WO?

    Meh, I am close to 213...Maybe I should be taking more...Problem is I workout in the evening. If I take more than 3 the insomnia would probably get pretty bad. Any advice?

    I would split the dose of the rpm. At 213 I would take 6 caps, 3 a few hours before, and then 3 45min to an hour before workout. Play with the dosage a little bit, once you find the sweet spot you will never want to train without it. I just got a bottle of RPM today after taking a 3 month break and it does make a huge difference. 1.5 hours of muay thai training and i felt much more confident and aggressive, plus my cardio was much better.

    I take 3 and I am smaller than you, I train at night as well. I have no problems. You could check out AN's lipotrophin pm though its awesome for a great night sleep !!

    Try not eating at least 1 hour before and take 4 rpm and see how that works for you.

    I had thought about doing that. I am going to try this tomorrow. I am going to try this on Sat as tomorrow is an off day. I guess I will stick to 3 caps on off days. Sat is arms day!

    Hey...Do you take this on off days? I mean...you personally?

  11. I do take it on off days, but only 2 caps. Money is tight right now!

  12. I take both with something in my stomach. At least some food. I take 4 caps of Drive (2 in the morning) and 2 with 3 Caps of RPM 1 to 2 hours before working out. I can not take these on and empty stomach because it affects my digestive system. I don't know exactly which works better ... but this small stack has done wonders for me an I've only been on it for 9 days. I've definitely grown because all my shirts and pants fit tighter. Also, my body is harder, I'm pump all day and I am definitely stronger. I'm glad I did not see this thread last week before buying my supps. I would have been skeptical and I probably would have not bought into the products. I have been into weight lifting for over 20 years (on and off) and I have never bought any over the counter supplement better than these 2 products.

    Might have to do that as well. Just with the RPM though. If I don't dose the Drive high I am not going to feel a thing from it lol. We will see where this goes after a few days. "I'll be back!"

    I'm not sure that you're supposed to get pumps from RPM. I've never gotten any enhanced pumps from it, even at 5-6 caps (I'm about 198 and 15%, just to give you a reference).

    However, since I'm very sensitive to stims, I like the ability to adjust dosage and not interfere with sleep as you said.

    If I work out at night, I like to take 2-3 caps on an empty stomach about 15 minutes preworkout. If you're eating every 2-3 hours, just time it, duh. Then sip on a non-stim workout mix during the workout.

    I see no point in taking RPM at any time other than preworkout.

    I give RPM a thumbsup (and I rarely give supps my seal of approval).

    This is how I use these supplements and I never take the full dose suggested because it is too much money. In addition, I have a sensitive system ... I will get something and "something" is enough. Anyway,

    Work out days ...

    4 caps of drive
    3 caps of rpm

    My diet ... Anything, everything, some days I eat less, some more ... Really NO DIET.

    I smoke a pack of cigarettes a day.
    I drink a lot of coffee.


    Non-Workout Days

    2 caps of Drive, 2 of RPMs.


    NOW ... If I am getting a pump, if I have grown (definitey), If I am stronger and harder... cause I most definitely am ... then these supplements work!

    i forgot to mention ...

    I'm 170lbs, '5 9", I'm 39 years old ....

    Another thing ... I take them with food sometimes, they do not affect my sleep in a positive or negative way either.

    Again, these supplements are pretty strong. They definitely worth the $.

    Supplementation will be a lot more useful if your diet is worth "supplementing". And you should really drop the ciggarettes.

  19. For me the solid pumps wore off after 3 or 4 workouts. Luckily the stim is powerful/useful.

  20. I would say definately don't give up on RPM as some of its effects are cumulative. I've been taking it for about two weeks now, and today I had the most energy and eagerness to go to the gym ever.

    I usually workout about an hour to 1.5 hours after I get out of class, so I'm already on an empty stomach, I take my rpm (4 pills, I'm 205 lbs.) then I eat something small about 30-45 min later like a few slices of turkey or ham and some peanuts and a couple strawberries. Keeping the snack pretty small and I'm ready to workout like 20 min. later...Stick with it, I HIGHLY recommend RPM...

  21. wow u get a pump and u smoke a pack stoges a day.. i notice even after smokin 1 or 2 stoges i wont get a very good pump in da gym tat day..refer however is diff. i seem to get an insane pump while t.u.i.. (t stands for training)

    t.u.i. of what?

  23. Some people get the pumps, some do not. You could just be non-responsive to that aspect of RPM. Do you feel the energy boost, or the alpha-male feeling? I would try upping your dose to see if that helps like Fit said, and try taking it an hour after a meal, or an hour before.

  24. LOL why am i such a light weight... If i take 3 RPM I feel like im going to take off into orbit. I only take 2 pre workout and im 225 pds.

    I hear you at just over 200lbs I only take 2 or 3, 4 is the most Ive done and is overstimulating for me.
