I don't consider <500mg to fall under "high doses" anyway. Potential for ROS formation also increases with NO boosters and nitrates.

I believe this is another Poliquin recommendation, which he primarily used through intravenous administration of vitamin C. Take Poliquin's nutritional supplement advice with a grain of salt. Also Mr. Cooper covered the issue of pro-oxidant issues associated with utilizing anti-oxidant dosages that are too high. I believe that anti-oxidant usage specifically around workout time is also related to greater overall ROS generation and diminished insulin sensitivity post exercise.

Searching about vitamin C around workout I came across this thread. And found this interesting. It's funny how things and opinions (sometimes for good reasons) change over time.

I take 1-2 tablets of vit-c first thing in the morning. Since I train very early this is pre-workout. I started taking it because of cold/allergies, but have noticed much less DOMS.

But does less DOMS mean more gain?
If vitamin C preworkout is counterproductive and not healthy it's better to take it far from work out. This is why I was searching the topic. I alwas took some vitamin C after my workout but if it's not a good idea maybe I have to reconsider that.

Agree, and vice versa, reducing them with vitamin C doesn't mean better recovery. or maybe I'm wrong.

Don't tell me you are promoting Muschetech products lol or maybe you are doing this to be fair and not to promote SNS products only. Which is much appreciated.
Actually MyoBuild looks like a solid product. But I prepfer bulk powders. Always done this.

Yeah, bulk powders are the cheapest option in nearly all situations. If it's solely LCLT you're looking for, I'd go that route. If you want some other added goodies, Growth Factor XT and MyoBuild are great choices. Growth Factor is shipping out to retailers this week.

"The most important times to take Vitamin C are one hour prior to training and two hours after your workout is completed. By ingesting 2 to 4 grams at these times the Cortisol response will be minimized and the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C maximized."
I currently take 1g an hour pre workout and another gram about 40 mins post workout. I'm guessing that post workout dose is too close!

Edit: do you have issues with extended release of cortisol?
