    clen - what am I doing wrong?


    Team,
    After reading and doing some research on clen (from this site as well as other sources), I decided to get some clen and try it out. The goal was to lose weight and cut. I weigh ~150 lbs and want to get to 140. I am an avid biker and do some lifting in the off season. Bike around 200 miles a week. After taking clen for a week (20g, 40g 60g and so on), I did not notice any weight loss at all. Plus I lost a lot of power climbing hills which I can normally do fairly easily. I take clen with Taurine as suggested, but that is not helping either. Any suggestions?

    Try dosing at 80-100. U could have a high tolerance , Or maybe u just got a bad batch.

    You know I once bought some Biomex Clen it was 40mcg per pill. I took that stuff and didn't notice much except that I had cramps more often and some shaky hands some times. Otherwise I went up to take as many as 5 of those 40mcg pills a day. Basically not very happy with the batch. Motha****as where poll jocking the **** out of Clen. I found old RoxyLean ECA to be way better.

    I've never tried clen. But ECA is just too convenient and way effective.

    If you can get your hands on an old formula of RoxyLean ECA

    Ok, i'll try the larger dose. Is it normal to lose power when taking clen or should I just hold off on heavy efforts whilst on clen? It seems to be a catch-22. ECA - will give it a shot after clen and report results. Thanks for the tips. You guys rock!

    idk if you know this or not. but clen has been studied and reported to lower endurance. it also causes cellular decay in the heart, this was tested on rats though. kind of hard to test that kind of thing on humans.

    point is, if you got a bunk batch, dont buy another one. if you want a beta agonist, just go with ec or albuterol

    and i dnt know how long youve been taking clen. but it downregulates beta receptors while active. since it has a ridiculous half life, you shouldnt take it longer than 2 weeks. itll lose its effects after that, unless you are also taking keto

    ECA can be purchased at any drugstore. (that doesn't count as source talk right? Lol)

    It's just ephedrine caffeine and aspirin. It definitely improves endurance for me.

    ^ Dont think that would count as source talk since it is the only place to get dem der drugs? Since Bronkaid is getting hard to find what other products are being used in its place.

    Pretty much seems like they only carry bronkaid a few months out of the year.

    I have also tried clen with clean eating and it did not affect my weight either. I felt it the first few
    days then there after nothing. I was on it for a 5week period and no dramatic weight loss maybe a few lbs, but this would've also been achieved by just clean eating and cardio.

    Correct me if im wrong but didnt those studies on rats and horses use a rediculous dosage. X2 on keto though. I used liquid clen for a short period and dropped about 10 lbs of fat. I stopped due to the forementioned power loss. I also used eca (bronkaid) for about a month or so and lost about 5lbs or so. This was doing HIIT and a very clean diet.

    Wouldn't mess with clen until it is considered "necessary" to continue progress. The sides are not fun.

    Doubt it was real clen then. You KNOW when its clen. Dangerous but it works. I would steer clear regardless

    I do a bunch of cycling too, a few hundred miles a week. I'm not sure about what you got, but when I tried it last year my endurance shot through the roof. I could maintain unheard of speeds, for me, on the flats for way longer than I ever could before and at lower heart rates! Climbing didn't seem to improve, but didn't get worse.
