Viagra as Training Supplement?

has anyone tried it before going to the gym, i heard allot of pro athletes use it now, and its perfectly legal before attending sports.

Yeah, but the staff at my gym don’t allow me to hump the plates anymore.
Something about too heavy weights damaging the floor.

EDIT : Ah, thread moved out of SAMA. Not so funny anymore considering who the OP is…

I sometimes use a half of a half 50 mg tablet, thats 12.5 mg, before training arms to get a great pump. Especially when dieting…

Dude, get off the internet.

im trying to but im not allowed to workout until my doctor clears me.

Yea I could see why, Viagra intended use is accomplished by allowing greater blood-flow. Works the same for the muscles, which is one of the reasons why athletes are using them.

Notice I say “one of the reasons”…

LOL I have wondered for years how long it would take a bodybuilder to figure out that to REALLY screw around with nitric oxide system what you need is a PDE5-I. Someone finally got around to it.

I wouldn’t recommend doing it though…its a potent arterial wall smooth muscle relaxer and is used in pulmonary hypertension. You take it too often and it will screw around with right ventricular afterload.[/quote]

I know of two men that have it prescribed for circulation issues.

Ive used cialis before. Ive noticed nothing different in the gym.
