    I'm trying to cut a bit before my vacation and just bought a bottle.
    My 1st impression is there is a fair amount of caffine in them.
    I took one and felt it, but this is my 1st day.

    I'm doing the other stuff too, like eating a bunch of small meals a day and counting calories and what not. I figured I would try a fat burner too and see if it helps any.

    I ususally go to the gym 3-4 days a week and weight train.
    I started going more often and running(around 25 minutes walking/running depending on what the pluse monitor says) and doing ab work on the non-weight trainning days.
    Right now, Im 5'11" and about 215-220lbs.

    yea, I signed up when I hated my job and just surfed at work all day. I guess maybe I could change it to work is tolerable for the money, but...
    but thats work, not physical activity that sucks

    Yeah, that was perfectly clear. I knew you were referring to your job. :)

    It was just a stupid play on words, pretty low brow. But then again, this is OT. :hsugh:

    how long and under what conditions(I assume you were also dieting) did you use it?
    were you trying to cut, or just trying to lose weight?

    Well, don't take my word for it, but I started taking some to shed some unwanted fat. I had also started lifintg, and eating better at the same time. I've seen good results. I look and feel leaner, but I dont know if its due to the HOTROX.

    From what I've heard, it does work, and some guys use it to lose the last 3 or 4% bodyfat they're holding onto but 1 bottle wont do much for you. You'll most likely need at least 2 to see good results.

    There are better, cheaper cutting stacks out there. Research E+C and see if its for you :bigthumb:

    It's Biotest, therefore it's not going to hurt you, but it's overpriced. If you really want something, E+C. Go to www.drumlib.com, best page on the EC stack out there.

    did the e+c search,
    got the best info on wiki
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ECA_stack#Dosage
    might start this tomorrow if I can find e locally.

    I'm still interested in hot-rox info. They don't say how much caffine is in it.
    I have to call them tomorrow.

    No, I didn't...but I'd figure any supplement geared towards increasing metabolism/burning fat would need more than 2-3 weeks to SEE results.

    Max dosage HOTROX: 8 pills per day
    136 Capsules per bottle

    Starting dosage 4 pills for first 3 days = 12
    124 pills left /8 pills per day = 15.5 days worth of pills left

    First 3 days, plus remaining 15.5 days = 18.5 days per bottle

    If you can get ripped in 19 days, go you. :bigthumb: Personally it would take ME longer. Just my opinion. Hence my statement "There are better, cheaper cutting stacks out there."

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.:hsd:

    Called biotest and they wouldn't tell me how many mg of caffine they have in hot rox. Asked on their forum and they said the same.
    They said they couldn't tell me because its a proprietary formula, and it has as much as a cup of coffee, which tells me nothing. From the one I took, its a substantial amount. I'll probably take them back to gnc.
    I underestand its proprietary, but its only caffine, not a secret ingerdient.

    Seriously. EC stack. Far cheaper, proven effective.

    www.drumlib.com

    Main use of EC is appetite suppression. That wears off, in how long is dependent on your personal reaction to it.

    If you're looking for pre-workout stuff, eh..caffeine, l-tyrosine mebbe.
