A few different trials this week:
Up next I'll try 2 scoops next week!
- 1.5 scoop pre-workout.
- Been doing with pre-meal a lot with Caffeine lately, mostly so that when I have higher doses the initial "kick" doesn't get the HR up too much.
- I was dragging this Monday, the worst I've slept in awhile (tossed and turned a lot), so I needed a kick. Almost went 2 scoops, but held it to 1.5.
- This "hit" pretty hard. Considering it was ~180mg of Caffeine there is no way it should have felt this strong, but it did. I can't stress how effective I find good doses of Teacrine (75mg in this case which DWARFS what you find in most pre-workouts...).
- I was a bit out of it still and mentally in a bit of a "haze" or kind of cloudy.
- Despite that I was able to focus on the task at hand really well and I crushed some personal bests on no-no snatches and back squats. It was a brutal 2 hour session and I had plenty of energy.
- The (possibly even more important) major benefit was the fact that I had zero crash and that it gave me enough energy to get through 4 more hours of work after AND then pass out to go to sleep quite easily.
- 1 scoop + 750mg ALCAR (and my usual 1g Tyrosine and 600mg Choline)
- So all the straight pre-workout doses are with my Ultra Octane that provides a decent Choline and Tyrosine boost, but this day I decided to try additional ALCAR.
- This really zoned me in. Even more so than usual.
- I could see this as a great "base" or product to give a boost if you are into using Nootropics, but prefer to alter your stim dosage depending on day/need.
- 1 scoops at different instances.
- So another quick update on this.
- I keep getting surprised how effective 1 scoop is.
- Again don't get me wrong this isn't going to kick you in the nuts and get you going like some of the crazier things out there, but considering how "neutered" some formulas are now this provides a pretty good stim benefit. If you haven't tried large Teacrine doses this could be fun to try.
- This is becoming a very "productive" product. I just get stuff done on it. For example I had to wake up earlier today and took .5 scoops before my morning Coffee and even that had me feeling more motivated (enough to type this up haha).
Awesome notes .. and yes i am totally shocked at how i feel 1 scoop .. way better then any energy drink and you can def feel Theacrine takes over that long lasting energy without really saying "wake up" .. your just in that wide awake zone
