    i usually drink a cup of coffee or take some amp before lifting. but im thinking about taking some time off of them. i know chris stopped taking them. not sure if he takes any now. how have your guys' workouts been without caffeine?

    I do. Working out without stims blows, especially if you didn't get enough sleep before hand. Just straight caffeine, or Spike shooters, or monster or whatever is what I do. Too lazy to order something on the net.

    Yeah man, if I have one cup of coffee within 4 hours of lifting, I get so pumped I can't even do anything close to my normal workout. It sucks because sometimes i am so fucking tired that i just want to lay down and go to sleep.

    always take stims:
    usually EC or thermorexin (tend to cycle these every 2-3 weeks). Though occasionally throw in exotics, if its a stimulant (legal or otherwise) probably have tried it, a good portion of the commercial formulas as well.
