    I just take what's in White Flood and Purple Wraath and love the tingles. :wiggle:
    Start taking it in 45min before my workout and finish it usally 1/2 hour into my workout.

    i find if I take it about 15-30min before my workout, the tingles kick in just as I start lifting

    I guess its because I have 3 scoops of Wraath with it.
    My occasional training partner though just uses Flood and gets it down his arm.

    helps with endurance. I find I don't get the "lactic acid" (or whatever really causes it) burn since I started taking it.

    not too mention the cool body tingles :mamoru:

    I don't take it separate, but what's in Primal N20. I'll never forget the first time I tried it and my face started tingling within a minute. As part of a combo product, I like it.

    I got some from 1Fast and use(d) it for a bit. Fuck the face tingles/burning for a negligible effect. I mean, I don't notice all that much of a difference... maybe a tad more energy... but the tingles are fucking annoying. If it had a more profound effect on my training it would be worth having a tingly face and paying 30$ or whatever I paid for the kilo.

    After my time training the things that are really worth the cost to this day is pre workout stimulants, creatine, protein powder, and crunk juice. The rest are still not justifiable for me.

    Maybe I'll keep using it. Face tingles are gay though.

    Science says if you want real results take a dip in the darkside :mamoru:

    But I know what you mean.

    I was just thinking , now that I am into my lifting routine for a couple months and real dedicated that I would start using Supps again. I picked up some Arginine, ON whey, ON Casein, Creatine Mono....and was thinking about BA.

    I'm already taking a multi and fish oil as well.
