caffeine clearly works though, and that's pretty clear cut and unequivocal, with reams of evidence and explanation as to why

i still haven't seen anything like that on creatine - i reached a conclusion its half chinese whispers, half wishful thinking and half very bad maths

What dosage of caffeine is allowed though ?
It certainly used to be a banned substance at higher levels in cycling.

its now totally legal along with pseudo-ephidrine as of Jan 1st,

Used to be an equivelant of 10 cups of coffee+ (thats standard cups of coffee in a standard cup, heh)

Ephdrine isanother one addressed by 220. have to admit i was a little shocked at that. ive read some reports on ephidrine which is in the same state of contentiousness as creatine 5+ years ago.
A friend here at work takes it to perk himself up when he's tired at work. Same stimulant effects as caffein only it increases the speed of blood from the heart and muscles.

Blimey. That's a big bill at Starbucks.
Buy a Ti Frame for that !

No idea what pseudo ephidrine is, but doesn't sound particularly appealing.

didnt they have a hit with 'funky town' ?

My view (based on experience for endurance and high altitude mountaineering) for what it's worth.

Creatine - not worth it unless you're doing power events.

Amino Acids - good

L Glutamine - good, especially for recovery.

Amino Acids and Glutamine together - excellent.

firemonkey - that's my conclusion, too - and i'm doing silly mileage

Sudafed = pseudo-ephedrine ??


Winky shrinkage. Would give you less drag on the swim though I spose.

but the fishies might attack it when lake swimming....

better than scaring the poor sea lions by making them think there is an orca on the prowl
