  1. If you feel dosage is too much it's ok, just drop the caffeine to half and the yohimbe stick it to just 1 dose a day Pre Workout of around 5mg to get its benefits, if it's still too much drop Y altogether. Just try first to keep full E doses with half caffeine only. Just some suggestions though, what matters more is your health and well being, when I suggested this stack to you I didn't mean for you to go all out or hurt yourself slow progress is best!

    Thanks Lexy, and yep! Slowly figuring out what works/what doesn't! I've received a lot of good advice thus far.

    Thanks Cel! It's okay, I'm okay!

    For now I'm keeping it at 1/2E, 1/2C doses. Shortness of breath and respiratory problems occurred around the time I added Y, so I will be dropping that for the time being. I'm still dosing Reduce XT, but also dropping that to 1-2x daily. As mk said, they weren't playing nice with each other. lol

    Had a very focused workout. Finished in ~1hr 15 minutes. I was determined to get in and out so I kept my rest periods shorter than usual and omitted a set of box squats. My knees felt wobbly during squats. Now I just need a massage!

    DAY 11 OF EC: Dosed 2x today at 1/2E, 1/2C. Overall I feel the kick of the caffeine but not so much where it feels like it's doing more harm than good. Sticking to this dosage for now. I'm also taking Reduce XT in the morning and ~1 hr before my workout; no longer before bed because it gives me a slight headache which keeps me up at night.

    DAY 32 OF IF:
    Shooting for 2500 calories

  6. When I started Yohimbine, I had a hard time with it. I took it for a day or two after eating.. not super close to working out, and then changed it to the way it was supposed to be dosed. It worked well for me over all.

    OK workout. Up to 50lb bench, finally. Didn't feel too strong on squats. 3rd set in I felt a pain shoot from the side of my right hip down to the outside of my calves as I dropped into the hole. However, it didn't stop me from finishing the set. Probably need to stretch my hip flexors more.

    Dosed 1/2 E, 1/2 C this morning. Took Reduce XT ~1 prior to workout. Feeling okay. Going to take another 1/2 dose of EC along with Yohimbine when I eat. I did this yesterday and overall I didn't feel as woozy. So I decided to take a second dose of Reduce XT and Yohimbine again a few hours before bed and that's when the side effects kicked in: nausea, minor headache, shortness of breath. Therefore I'll be sticking to 1 Yohimbine, 1 Reduce XT a day.

    Cal Intake: 2100 kcals

  14. have you been eating a few carbs b4 your workouts? overall how are you feeling with the tweaks...

    I had a banana and greek yogurt pre-wo today. Intensity of workout was pretty much the same, although my right hip and knees were bothering me a bit. I was a little less tired because I had some food in me. I'm not waiting until 5p.m. to eat!

    Dosed Yohimbine with my meal and can feel the effects already. Almost positive it's the Yohimbine that's been giving me issues.

    My perfect pre workout meal is oatmeal and some casein powder about 2 hours before a workout... When i get that down i usually have an excellent gym session.

    Yummy! I mix in some natty PB and some Walden's Choc. Syrup - it's delish

  20. making me hungry now, lol...

  21. going to have to try some of this walden chocolate syrup you speak of...

    Personally, I think it tastes better than Sugar Free Choc. Syrup (which has 15cals and 4g carb per serving ) I add it to my oatmeal and plain GY Walden's also makes a strawberry syrup which is delicious! These are usually found in the organic aisle. Price is around $3.99 a bottle; sometimes it will be on sale for $3.29. I've tried some of the salad dressings as well but those can be hit or miss.

    Beat up my quads today, man! After supersets they were on fiyahhhhhhH! Didn't feel very motivated at the beginning of my workout - just one of those days where my mind wasn't in it. But after a good set of deads the rest of the workout went well. Left hip still bothering me a little bit, so I'll have to keep an eye out on that and make sure to rest! Also taking a break from E/C because I'm beginning to feel asthmatic. Experiencing shortness of breath for like 2 days now. Lowering my cals on workout days to ~2100, and it seems to be working, but it's only been 3 days so we'll see!

    I would back off the supps that are bothering you for a bit and just enjoy training... Get some new music on the ipod, switch up the routine...

    Phewww. Getting winded more easily doing LISS; it's hard to get full breathes in, most likely due to the supps I was taking. I'm liking the contact twists, and can really feel it working my core! Added in DB Hip Thrusts as well to work on my glute activation!
