Take Power Drive PRE WORKOUT.

whats an ubermag? some prohormone?

r-ALA. Beware r enantiomers. The organic system tends to use L enantiomers. R enantiomers are NOT the same things, and are even potentially toxic. I’m not looking up r-ALA, just type in ALA enantiomers into and learn about it.

It’s a magnesium supplement; haven’t used it personally.

OP: What advantage to you gain from using it PWO? Also, I’m always curious to hear about custom workout shakes. What’s in yours?

You don’t have any clue what you are talking about. First off, the opposite of R is S, not L. R = Rectus, S = Sinister. L, levorotatory, is opposite to D, dextrorotatory, which have to do with how the molecule rotates polarized light. They refer to different molecular characteristics.

Second, the body use the R enantiomer of lipoic acid almost exclusively and in fact there are studies which claim that the S enantiomer actually increases oxidative stress when a racemic mixture is administered. ReceptorMax uses the R enantiomer and so should everyone else. S-ALA is garbage.

I felt I could use more of this as I sweat like a monster when Im really hitting the weights. As for why after the gym polquin states…

“exert sedative effects and lower the excitability of nerve cells throughout the central nervous system. This combination works well to calm individuals.”

I lift at night so I am hoping this intern will help me cool the nervous system faster if I take it pwo.

As for my custom work out drink. Im not knocking “Surge Workout fuel” but its damn $$. When I feel like I need somthing xtra I will use a combo of this…

Taurine - 3g

BCAA ? 10g

Glutamine - 9g

1 scoop of whey protien

1 Scoops of Custom Carb mix equates to about 25 carbs
50% Dex
50% Malto
