    Just started an E/C stack and I've searched through the Ephedra threads and all I've found about E/C and cardio is that you should probably avoid HIIT. What do you recommend? Just 30 minutes of medium intensity? Goal is obviously fat loss.

    you should be fine doing HIIT, monitor your heart rate during intense periods though. I do 3 doses of 200/25, per day, and I havent noticed any dramatic increase in HR while doing cardio compared with HR before I started taking EC

    What Pur had me do was 45-60 minutes of cardio @ 125bpm heartrate...worked wonders for me :dunno:

    Now would I take the EC stack and do HIIT 30 minutes later? Probably not.

    That's a lot of friggen time, I'm not trying to be an athlete like I assume you are, just trying to get some more tone. This is my first day on e/c so I'm not gonna try anything yet, but I figure tomorrow I might try going 2 minutes fast 2 minute medium for 30 minutes or so and do this 3-4 times a week.

    Fuck me I'm flying high off this shit

    125bpm heart rate on EC stack is like a 4.5mph jog for me. Also, I was trying to lose fat, not be an athlete.

    I've read that it isn't good for your stomach. Right now I'm considering ECY, but I dunno if I want to go that hardcore

    There was a study or two posted that indicated the level of aspirin needs to be very high to add benefit–so high that it would cause damage to your body.

    all you doing EC and wanting Aspirin you could probably get away with using a high potency green tea capsule. EGCG is sort of a blood thinner, so it acts like white willow bark does.

    but keep in mind the green tea caps most likely have some caffeine so you may wanna only take 3/4's of a 200 mg caffeine tablet.

    IIRC, from back in the day, that adding aspirin

    A. helped with heart palpitations associated with stimulants.

    B. was only a good addition to an EC stack if you were fairly obese.
