Hello everyone. I'm a new boy here. I want to learn and learn from the best and most knowledgable in the field of fitness - and that's you guys. After browsing this HUGE forum for some time now I thought it was time to sign up, show myself and get involved!!! ;-)
I've been reading this massive thread about Arginine reducing excercise induced GH, but without reading every single line (it's many pages long!) I'd like your opinion on when (if at all) it's best to take L-Arginine.
It seems a little confusing that if it is proven that Arg reduces GH then it is rather counter-productive to take it pre-excercise and befuddles (a yokel British term - forgive my country roots) me even more when the industry pushes NO products rich in L-Arg as a pre-excercise intensifier.
I tried some NO-xplode and to be honest it didn't do that much for me that 5g of L-Arg with a couple of espresso's couldn't do but without the worry of not understanding what I was putting in my body.
Over to you guys. I would appreciate your view. L-Arg is cheap and so is coffee. NO products are expensive. Both give decent pumps and vascularity - but I don't want the temporary high of a pump if it's suppressing what little GH I have left at my age!
In short, I don't want to take something that's gonna hold me back!
