    Just wanted to ask you uber brolly's a question about ECA stacks.

    What quantities should i be taking and how often? (I have 8mg tabs of ephedrine, 200mg tabs of caffeine and childrens aspirin.)

    Do I take an ECA stack before working out or after?

    I've been running a lot recently. 1-2-3 miles per day 6 days per week. 20-25 min of weights after my run.

    Thanks for any help you guys can offer :x:

    Unless you're obese its apparently unnecessary.
    Original diet formulas had 200mg caffeine and 25mg ephedrine. Supposed to take them at 10:1 ratio.

    For every 10mg of caffeine you take 1mg of ephedrine.

    I wouldn't say i'm obese, definetly have about 10-15 lbs extra to lose.


    When should i be taking this stack? Before the gym? After? Once a day? Twice?

    Thanks for your input guys

    I keep mine to before the gym.. some people also like to take it in the morning.

    I wouldn't take a full dose of aspirin, but since in general low dose aspirin is recommended for general health, I don't' see why the daily dose couldn't be taken with EC.

    I never took ephedrine before the gym. It always made my heart race and I was afraid of a heart attack if it did that during a workout :lol:

    I took em in the morning and sometime during the day or after the gym. Caffeine I took before the gym.

    thanks knucks :x:

    I am one of the people foolishly bought No-Explode and subsequently read the article posted the other day about how it's a big rip off and you might as well take caffeine. So once the No-Explode is done i'll take a caffeine pill before going to the gym. A lot cheaper that's for sure.

    I usually take one dose in the morning to get things going, and another in the afternoon/evening to help with studying.
