    i played a pickup game yesterday, and tried the ec stack for the first time.

    My energy level was off the charts, I never had a mindset where I wanted to quit playing for some reason, my legs/ankles usually die out without taking the ec stack, but with it, it feels like I'm the energizer bunny that just keeps going and going....

    the only reason why I am telling you all of this is because, I want to know... is this a bad thing? I usually play pickup games 3-5 times a week...

    Is there a benefit of me taking the ec stack while playing basketball, besides having more energy than everyone else?

    I didn't even see him mention a dose :ugh:

    Keep the dose low, drink lots of water, you should be fine.

    many many times. and so have literally thousands of bodybuilders. ephedrine and caffeine both help with fat loss, fatty mobilization, etc. etc. as do norependrine (sp), adrenaline which are increased due to intake of thermogenics.

    actually, you become use to the "high" of the EC stack and you lose that Matrix-esque feeling like you could see the wings of a hummingbird flapping and shit, but no doubt, it is fun the first time you take that stuff.

    Could you please point out where he posted his massive dose that he took?

    and before you ask.

    Yes, I've taken e/c stack many many many times before cardio as well as bjj/mma. ZomG! who would ever take a stimulant prior to physical exercise!!!!

    no i wouldn't...I would work on your conditioning if that's what you are after. Eventually if you take it all the time you won't get the same effects and will need to take a break anyway.

    JESUS. you are the reason PT's have a bad name :fawk:. okay follow the ball. here goes. if good cardio/conditioning is what he's after after no he shouldnt just take a pill. but there is nothing wrong/ inherently super dangerous about taking stimulants before cardiovascular activity, which was your point. Do you understand now sparky?;)
