    ALCAR weight gain?

    140mg of ALCAR is a super low dose, so I HIGHLY doubt that it would do much of anything at that dose. Normal doses are 1-2 grams, or 1000-2000 mg. That said, ALCAR really shouldn't lead to weight gain. Carnitine may arguably help burn a little bit of fat, but not to a remarkable degree, so I...

    How Much Arginine?

    What are you using plain arginine for? That may help determine the dose range. For pump purposes, things like citrulline, Nitrosigine, or nitrates are honestly better. You can combine arginine and citrulline though. Some research points towards the combination being better than either alone.

    Alright, BCAAs..... Starting to go to the other side

    If I didn't have a good pre-workout meal, and for some reason wasn't going to have a good post-workout meal (even within an hour or two post-workout), then I'd consider supplementing with EAAs. May as well get all the EAAs, not jus the BCAAs. 6-8g EAAs with at least 3g of that being leucine is...

    Alright, BCAAs..... Starting to go to the other side

    Do you hit your daily target protein intake of at least 1.4-2.0 g/kg/lb bodyweight (ISSN Position Stand on Protein and Exercise)? Or perhaps more during a cut, if you want (may help preserve muscle mass if you go a little higher while cutting). Do you have a meal sufficient in protein within a...

    Solo Longjack supp?

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3669033/ Will it bring you to supraphysiological levels of testosterone and/or free testosterone? No. Will it helps to optimize them, or bring them back to a normal level if they're low for any number of reasons including stress/fatigue/etc. Seems...

    Huperzine and Galantamine

    I would say no, or at least there's no reason to even try IMO. Considering research shows they're both quite potent/effective at inhibiting AChE at low/moderate doses, I don't see why you'd need any "synergism" to potentiate this inhibitory effect. Especially since this inhibition seems to be...

    Anyone worried if Corona virus keeps spreading the gyms will shut down?

    Yeah, he’s a talented, skilled, and successful boxer, but he’s not a FUN one IMO.

    I love Aurelius! Have you read Epictetus' Discourses? It may be my favorite book of all-time.

    Anyone worried if Corona virus keeps spreading the gyms will shut down?

    Yes, but, through no fault of Jesus himself, “Christianity” has become so much more (or less) than the teachings and life of Jesus. I agree we can all learn a great deal from the teachings and life or Jesus, even without be necessarily believing in the Christian theology. Too many people, in my...

    Anyone worried if Corona virus keeps spreading the gyms will shut down?

    I recommend the Stoic philosophers. Marcus Aurelius, for example, talks about meditating on death and the inherent shortness of life a lot. And he and Epictetus both teach that life is limited, that death is inescapable, and to fear the inevitable is childish. edit: and not all people who...

    Anyone worried if Corona virus keeps spreading the gyms will shut down?

    Oh, my bad, I’m agreeing with you that it’s good they evaluated numbers above expected, not just total numbers. Doing otherwise would be pushing an agenda as opposed to objective research, which it seems like this paper is not doing (that is to say they seem to be doing good research, not just...

    Donald Trump running for president

    Some people actually think that foreign pharmaceutical companies are waiting on releasing finished COVID treatments for after the US election because they all want Trump out of office. Yes, yo I heard that right. I’m sure a foreign pharmaceutical company is sitting on being the first to market...

    Donald Trump running for president

    He contradicts himself nearly every time he posts. It’s almost impressive.

    Donald Trump running for president

    Yeah, actually. This is more than a political s**t posting forum. In terms of supplement discussion, I’d say I’m actually pretty damn respected and knowledge, if I say so myself. Not sure about you though bub. What have you contributed to these forums besides bad math and grammar?
