Thinking about getting some, how many people on here use em?

I did when I was going for heavy PL style squats. Shit can make you go batshit crazy.

Next, I want to try PCP before a deadlift. Hopefully without getting naked and going on a violent rampage, but if it adds a hundred pounds it'd still be worth it.

Try a half capsul first, just to see your reaction to it.


#4

I just drink true blood


#5

i think they suck. if the smell of piss "psyches you up" go for it. it did nothing for me.


#6

Is Jenkem your tool of choice?


#7

what's Jenkem?


#8

I use em for PR lifts. They work great. I yank one up my nose as hard as I can and roar like a fucking elephant for a few seconds, then I have to be led to the barbell by my lift partner since my eyes are so watery I can't see shit, but they work.

Try this little trick of mine. Put an ice pack on your chest right over your heart for a couple of minutes to illicit a panic reaction that causes the heart rate to spike. Then take a smelling salt to your face and try a lift. I deadlifted 440 like this and I haven't been able to hit anything more than 420 since then unless I use the ice pack and salts.

It's a noxious gas that results from fermenting feces.


#10

fucking gnarlz


#11

How exactly do you use half a capsule?


#12

Jenkem- this generation's banana peels.


#13

real men sniff ammonia.


#14

Tricking your body into thinking it's dying for the win.

Isn't that a Polquin technique? I could have sworn I read it in one of his articles, or maybe it was Thib...


#15

oooh

arent people like putting feces into bags and huffing it to get high?

lmfao what is wrong with people


#16

I'm pretty sure I read this years back from Thib...


#17

Do ammonia caps work before sporting events such as hockey ect..?


#18

they're just supposed to open up your breathing pathways/sinuses. and it will only last a few moments.

some people get a brieft but intense boost out of them. so maybe if you were just coming off the bench onto the ice or something but other than that i can't see any real benefits.


#19

get them at a store like cvs as they are used to revive people who have passed out as well so they are cheaper there than ordering specially from a lifting site, no hate towards efs love the shit on there but sometimes very over priced and with shipping on tiny shit like unless they have free shipping


#20

Hit some as your waking up, shit hits the back of your head hard...cause I'm cool like that.
