    I love Bulgarian Split Squats! They are amazing for quads/glutes. That burn is a good sign. For me, Bulgarian Split Squats make my leg days! I do them with two dumbells.

    Greetings,

    I think the reason alexs1998 is asking this question is because some studies showed that caffeine negates creatine. I read that in a couple of places. Not sure if it's true, but for...

    Greetings,

    Great material here. I'm very selective about my supplements, and prefer to obtain specific compounds rather than pre-made "mixes." Looks like Taurine deserves to be included!

    Greetings,

    Should it be taken as a pre-workout or as a daily supplement like Creatine? Does it play nicely with Citrulline-Malate (that's my only other pre-workout supplement)?
