    Am I hindering my gains by going this route? I'd like to believe it's only helping me keep my gains lean, as long as I keep my overall calories high.

    Thoughts?

    Bulk and fat loss don't even belong in the same sentence.

    You can probably use it for some extra bursts of energy, I suppose?

    you will hear different perspectives on this. However, IMHO stims provide benefit regardless of whether its a lean bulk or all out sloppy mass cycle. CNS benefits for training in both cases. You can always up cals to offset any metabolic increases.

    now when it comes to thermogens or stims that provide minimal CNS benefits, there it will depend a lot on both desired effects, individual and individual compounds/compounds.

    If anything they will boost your metabolism and give some energy... but don't expect to only put on lean mass on your bulk just because you use a supp. The fact is, your cals in should still be greater than your cals out regardless.

    I wouldn't do it, stims ephedrine in particular are not the best thing for you.

    Alright, I guess I will drop them for a few weeks and see what difference it makes, dropping the E from EC stack. I'll evaluate weight gain, BF%, and energy differences after a month or so.
