I’ve never really done much in the way of pre-workout stimulants other than Power Drive but I was recently reading through the T-Mag archives and found an old article on ECA, it looked sorta interesting and since in speedskating it helps to be real amped before a race or time trial, I figured I’d see if theres anything I can learn. So earlier this morning I had a time trial, beforehand I decided to experiment a little: I had a double shot of espresso and one regular strength Aspirin. I didn’t want to go overboard on the Aspirin and since I don’t have any ephedra available or money to buy ephedra, I went without it. Basically, during the TT, I skated a personal record and beat my previous mark by over a second (not too easy to do).
Heres my question for those who have experimented with this “stack” before: if you’re not really looking for fat burning, does the ephedra really matter that much? Does it increase the “high” you get from the stack or does it just add the fat-burning aspect?
