    so i got 3 tubs of this stuff from 1fast400.com when they were on sale. it got here and i tried some... smelled, tasted, AND looked like shit. looked like it was exposed to some sort of moisture and, no lie, 2 of the tubs had one huge solid mass instead of powder inside. didn' teven give me any more energy when i took it. i got a little upset, but they were only 5 bucks/tub, so i didn't feel too bad. sat one on my shelf at work "just in case."
    last week, after the showing in my monday workout, i wasn't happy. the energy just wasn't there, and i didn't sleep well monday night at all, so tuesday's workout was shaping up to go the same way.
    so, i tried some more neurostim + c. the aftertaste is so bad, i decided to try to mix it with something to kill it. i had a tube of zipfizz on my desk (vitamin B12 supplement, essentially), so i mixed it in with a couple of scoops of neurostim.

    when i got to the gym, i had a ton more energy and it felt like i could go forever (especially compared to the day before's workout).

    cliffs: mixed with B12, neurostim + c works pretty well :wiggle:

    Neurostim is garbage, but i guess if you got the placebo from it thats all that counts.

    it didn't do shit by itself... but for some reason it seemed to work a little with the B12 :dunno:

    hmm... may look into this...

    you think zipfizz does anything?
    www.zipfizz.com
    it's got a lot of b12, but i'm guessing i just piss most of it out

    it could totally be all in my head... but since i've started taking it, i get a little hyper and when i get to the gym, i feel like i could stay forever. hell, tonight i was there for over 3 hours, as compared to my normal hour and a half... when i left, i felt fine and when i usually leave the gym, i'm ass-dragging tired :dunno:
