Best Place for Smelling Salts


#1

Where is the best place to buy them?


#2

Get some ammonia from EFS...can't go wrong with buying anything from EFS.


#3

Nose Tork (smelling salts) is about 3x stronger than any ammonia cap. Liftinglarge.com sells em for 6 bucks I think. They last a long time.


#4

Great tip, thanks. I just ordered some from Inzer along with some knee wraps and the shipping was much more reasonable than liftinglarge.


#5

Thanks guys. I've never tried ammonia caps or nose tork before what exactly does it feel like?


#6

I don't think nose tork is anywhere close to the potency of ammonia caps. And its effectiveness wanes over time.


#7

A punch in the face while two hooks are jammed up your nostrils that're coated with medical disinfectant.


#8

I'm sorry but the only way I could see this being true is if when taking a hit of the nose tork you keep your face too far away from the bottle. Oh, and I can see ammonia caps being stronger if you actually stuck it in your nostril. Nose tork does loose its kick but it usually takes a quite a long time. You only get 10 caps per box for like $5 while nose tork is $6 and lasts much longer than 10 uses.


#9

I agree strongly with d0m.


#10

I get them from CVS. I love ammonia for deadlifts. I tend to black out but it helps me hit big lifts. Save it for meets though because it seems to get less effective if you use it too much


#11

Google ammonia inhalants. First aid sites usually sell a box of 100 caps for ~25. I have a box on its way right now. As an alternative, buy the jug from wal-mart, crank it open and sniff.


#12

Dang how are you guys getting them at retailers? I tried kmart, walmart, cvs, and walgreens none of them in my area sell them.


#13

I got some from work-

one TV studio I work has a zee medical first aid kit mounted on the wall.

I asked the tech who fills it where I could buy some and he gave me a handful.
