    my friend once got ahold of some smelling salts from his dads army first aid kit. Any way my buddy decided to crack one open under his nose just to see what would happen. I don't know if he cut his nose or something on the ampuole when he cracked it or what happened but he took a huge whiff of the ammonia, and started gagging and coughing and blood literally started just pouring out of his nose for a good 5 or 10 minutes.

    I could definetly see how that would wake someone up.

    p.s.- that article was hilarious, repped!

    oooh another thing I use ammonia for is to clear my eyes back up after a heavy squat.

    i don't actually blow capillaries but the pressure on my eyes must deform my cornea or something b/c everything goes hazy, like the room is filled with smoke for like...an hour after my squats.

    sometimes ammonia will clear it up.

    WOOOO!!! YOU GO GIRL!!!
    "Clit stimulation if your fingers are dry is not a good idea. The clit is more sensitive than the underside of a guy's penis, apparently.

    Good rule of thumb: make sure you're fingers aren't dry before they go anywhere NEAR her clit/pussy.

    Also, besides myself, maybe 2-3 of you have actually done anything like this before..."

    Ammonia caps used in a medical situation are the same as the caps PLers are using.

    Lots of powerlifting websites sell them. Medical supply stores do as well, those that cater to EMTs or paramedics. They are cheaper as medical supplies than they are as PL supplies.

    I picked up a bottle in preparation for my first pl meet. The bottle says to hold six inches from your nose. Agree?

    wow



    like some posters above have said, I've used salts and ammonia, and choose zen over them. But some people love them, and I can see why. They certainly are a rush.

    sometimes ammonia will clear it up.
    I know this is old but I get kinda like that. Things turn red and smoky and sounds are muffled to muted. Goes away with in a minute afterwords though for me. Haven't tried ammonia caps for it though.


    For the thread bump and discussion, I use ammonia caps pretty much only at meets. I'll get an empty water bottle and smash a few caps and put them in there. Half way through the day I'll smash one or two more. Lasts the entire day for each lift.

    How do you make them last? Do you just cap the bottle after? I might compete in early april and if I can find a way to make them last, I would be able to save some.

    As for me, I find the ammonia my nervous system a shock and wakes it up right before a heavy lift.

    Yeah, you leave the cap on the entire time. Just before the lift I'll unscrew the cap and take in a nice big sniff and recap it right away.
