Modafinil and CNS Stimulation


#1

Coach,
Further to your post on pre workouts, I was wondering if you or your athletes came across Modafinil and what your thoughts are on using it for improving neural output? It doesn't seem to affect CNS in a systemic way and appears to be a popular choice among the sprinting community.

it is a banned substance by the WADA so none of my athletes use it.

I see. I think it is an interesting compound for non-tested gym warriors as it doesn’t have an overt effect on cortisol production.

Then we will agree to disagree. I’ll stick to giving training advice :slight_smile:

No worries. You have always been a valued poster and I think highly of you. I didn’t take this the wrong way at all.
