Try some tea.
I never force myself to stay awake though, your body needs sleep, especially if you lift.

If i'm not taking an ECA stimulant, i'll take 2 100mg caffiene tablets.

Actually I agree with burrito....... Vegetables at each meal promoting steady blood sugar levels and a steady supply of energy keeps me ticking all day long. However I do use an ECA stack to kick me in the pants for my high intensity cardio.

Actually I have the opposite problem, I get too little sleep. I always attempt to get to sleep but either can't because I am thinking of stuff I want to get done or just doing it. Oh well, I could have worse problems, I'll be grateful.

I usually just drink black coffee, but Ive known some
bodybuilders that drink some sort of Chinese herbal tea.. you
might look at a health food store and see what kind of products
they might have with caffeine...

I recommed staying away from sodas... you really can do better
by drinking tea... (mm... tea)

I have that exact same problem. It sucks! It can be as frustrating as hell. Try taking Melatonin, 5-HTP, Valerian Root, or even OTC sleeping pills before you go to be. They can help you get to sleep faster.

Alot of people at my overnite job drink MD. Like coffee! I never got a rush off it, maybe because of heavy ECA use.
