Confused About Pulsing


I am confused on whats considered a pulse. Is it a whole bottle, or a certain amount from the bottle or is the pulse doseage. Could someone please explain this clearly. Thank you!!


All of it at once, then you're jacked.


OP: Hint - the answer IS in the Pulse Fast article (not the new one by LL, the one with the description of the whole thing). Also, think about it - downing the entire 2l in one go?


New terminology often comes with new programs, so it's completely understandable if you get confused.

Here's a quick explanation of a pulse and Pulse Fast:

A Pulse Fast is a 36-hour fast where you basically drink MAG-10 and Power Drive for a full waking day plus two nights: Go to bed, wake up and consume nothing but the Pulse Fast components, go to sleep that night, wake up the next day and eat normally. That has been referred to as a "Pulse."

But we've also called every serving of the Pulse Fast drink a "pulse" as in "pulse when you wake up, then 2 or 3 hours later have another pulse..." etc.

So, when you hear someone say he is going to do a "pulse" on Monday, he could either be saying that he'll be having one serving of it (maybe between meals), or he could be saying that he'll be doing the program for the 36-hour period (Pulse Fasting).

All that said, a long-range Pulse Fast might be every Monday for an extended period of time, or every Monday/Thursday for a month etc.

So the language can be a bit confusing, but the full program is outlined here: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_bodybuilding_supplements/mag10_pulse_fast

Hope that clears it up a bit!


Shoot, I have been drinking the entire 2L ten times throughout the day!
