    ...I've been taking these things for about a week now and while they kind of help a little bit, I'm not really seeing any need to make future purchases quite yet. One thing I was wondering is if I can grind these pills up and swallow them, or do I have to worry about them being time released capsules or something?

    eh, its not like swallowing the pills is all that hard, i've actually gotten use to it. but it's more time consuming than i'd like it to be. most of the time i have to take the pills at work and i dont have time to sit there and swallow each pill one by one. but i'll wait for someone who really knows what they're talking about.

    If you're not at an elite level, you really don't need to be worrying about stuff like Animal Pak that *may* give you a slight advantage. Get a good once or twice a day multivitamin, train hard, get your diet dialed in, and you will be good to go for a long time. All this little shit is going to do nothing except drain your bank account.

    i can crush the pills at home and have it ready to put in a glass of water, tell me how that's not easier than swallowing 15 horse sized pills. im not worried about taste, im worried that since most pills have time released capsules and are designed to breakdown by themselves over time that if i crush them up it will hit my system to fast.

    yah, i was just sticking to protein, but my parents gave me some money to go towards supplements, it was free money so i decided to say fuck it and i bought some cee and a thing of animal pak. like i said i haven't noticed any spectacular changes that would warrant any future purchases.

    you're worried about the time it takes to swallow 15 pills? Take 5 at a time, thats what I do it will cut your time out if you're that worried about it.

    Frankly I can't understand how you have so much going on in your day you can't take 2 minutes out to swallow a few pills. If that is the case you should evaluate your day, find when you have time..maybe taking a pee, poop, eating???

    Beside I don't believe you need the Animal Pak to assist in your training. If you need that to enhance yourself when you haven't reached your genetic potential you're weakminded and have to rely on substances to get you to your goals.

    dude, animal paks and paks in general are not that costly, they are a good multi vitamin, and didnt you take like 11,000 pills a day?

    having a problem comprehending today I see. Maybe you should spend a little less time in the gym and a little more time in the library reading.

    failure to understand simple logic is a sure sign of a weak mind.

    I know what they are. Unlike you I read up before I post to look like a low minded jackass.


    You should read my words don't just brush over them and make up your own interpretation.

    And make fun if you will, while I am constantly improving my most valuable muscle (my mind) you'll still be struggling. So say what you like.

    I get my vit. and minerals from the foods I eat everyday.

    as far as the time consuming thing, i am just following the instructions on the back of the bottle. it says to take the animal pak 30 minutes after your preworkout meal. So I will usually take a lunch at about 2:30-45 and then at 3:15 i will take the pills. Once I've already taken my lunch at work they don't seem to look to kindly to me walking off and taking another 3 minutes to down some pills. I was just looking for something to make it faster so they don't really bitch about it. That way I can have it ready and it will only take a second, or i can work while drinking it.
    Still my main question was I was just wondering if crushing them would affect the time release, but I guess noone seems to know.
