I am a newbie, and am learning lots from this board. Thanks to all to post and respond, all of the info is great! Anyways… I started popping Xenadrine before workouts about 4 months ago for a energy boost. The stuff does wonders for my energy levels. However, I’m on a massing stage right now, and am having some trouble gaining… I am gaining but more like 1/3 of a pound a week, instead of the typical pound. I’m thinking that cutting Xenadrine before workouts may help. What do you guys think? Is there something I can use to replace Ephedra… at least during my massing cycle? Thanks!
