    Before I started taking Adderall I was in the gym five days a week. I've been on Adderall for a little over a year now and rarely work out. Anyone who is experienced with Adderall knows what it does to your appetite, but have any of you found a way to still workout and take your medication?

    I would love to start lifting weights. I really miss being in shape but I just realize that school is far more important at this time in my life.

    From what I hear, ritalin/adderall are some of the best stimulants for the gym. Helps with pain tolerance as well. My friend used to spend 3+ hours in the gym continually lifting when he took ritalin. Had some very impressive gains in that time period.
     
  3. That shit fucks me up...I'd just want to like clean my room listening to techno music blasting. It makes you want to do shit though so maybe if you pop it and go to the gym you'll be like obsessed with working out. I don't like how it makes me feel though...sometimes I get a fucking nasty hangover from it...then again I'm taking like way too much and stay up all night...

    Friend of mine popped some adderall and went to the gym and ran on the tread mill for like an hour straight. He never runs and smokes.

    It is painfully obvious you are not familiar with the story of Ron Burgandy.

    I take adderall and have no problems working out when I need to. :dunno: You still need the willpower to start it but once you're going it's easy.

    I have a feeling railing a pair of 20mg addy's would certainly improve any workout:coolugh:

    :rofl: I only snorted my adderall once and never again. Up until that point I had never been in a bar fight.

    I take an adderall before I train sometimes. Increases my focus and amps me up! I love training on it!!

    I take it when I have a bunch of cleaning to do. My apartment fucking sparkles after a adderall induced cleaning montage. Yes, I said montage. Music plays out of nowhere when I take adderall. It's epic.

    That's so true. I'll rail a few and then clean up my apartment, do homework, organize my iTunes....:ugh:

    I've only taken it a couple of time (for studying purposes) but if you're on it daily for school I would re-work your schedule for workout/study time.

    I can't imagine that the problem is that you're too hopped up to workout... That wouldn't make sense. I am assuming you take it in the morning and run an energy high all day long while in school and studying, and then when you get home at night and plan to workout you start crashing from the Addy and have no motivation to workout?

    If this is the case, try a pre-workout stimulant, but consult your doctor first.

    You can always tell when I start an E/C stack because my apartment is fucking spotless.

    careful training on it, its dangerous to your heart. Also yes adderall kills your appetite completely and also burns through fat like mad. Its the new rage for bb'ers competeting, instead of coke lol.

    I don't see how it burns through fat. :dunno: I take it almost every day and I still have my full appetite and it's not really any easier to lose weight.

    because youre used to it. if youre not, you wont eat for days. and it increases your heart rate so you are burning more calories even if you do eat the same.

    uhh its methamphetamine salts lol...speeds up heart rate, sweating, etc. You may still be able to eat on it because your add or adhd is for real and your not just lazy...lol also orange runs work different then the pink corr ones, addy xr also doesnt seem to touch appetite nearly as bad as the regular release. I cant even touch a pink corr, they make my heart come out my throat. The orange ones, work excellent. Xr...sucks...imo

    The orange ones are the only ones that I've tried.
