My homemade ECA wouldn't be complete with out 'em. :D

I just buy regular caffiene pills. 200 mgs per cap. No more than 10 bucks a bottle.

Thanks for the info. I just did a search and did a little research on GO and that sounds pretty good and some people are taking it with ALCAR I hear..Now what exactly is ALCAR and where can I find it?

no prob. man its completely understandable, but i have another question for everyone out there..Now I'm looking for like a super high energy boost for when i workout and do cardio..I also wouldn't mind it lasting throughout the day, but most importantly for the gym..I've read reviews on GO and that sounds good...Would GO by itself be good or should i take GO with something else or just take something completely different? Thanks guys

You don't need GO. Hell, taking 3 caffiene caps at 200mgs has no rival.

i'd be careful with caffeine though... it's a very addictive substance... I began buying vivarian and other caffeine products 2 years ago to help staying awake while juggling work and school... I started taking one of those 200mg pills occasionally and they would make me shake... and eventually I got used to it and I took more and more and easily took anywhere from 400 - 800 mg of caffeine a day... but that was over a year ago.

Anyways I stopped taking caffeine like that a long time ago... Now i found a good use for them though... what I do is I break up about a 4th of a pill (200 mg pill, broke into a 4th equals 50mg of caffeine) and I crush it up and mix it into my pre-workout shake that I drink 30-60 minutes before lifting... it really helps my workout bc I'm always in and out of rehearsals at school, so by the time I get to the gym and I am dead tired. Plus I seem to get a really good pump from them too...

Plus cheap caffiene pills like Vivarian work well and they are like $5 for something like 16 of them...

Caffiene is the original pre workout energizer(Besides Fast Orange and that was nuts for those who remember) and the cheapest.

I'm a fan of NoDoz. :D
