    Ephedrine - Recovery Effects

    Iíve stated before that I have a general dislike for EC so Iím curious if my bias is effecting my judgment.

    Iíve started taking it 2-3 a day these last two weeks of my final dieting phase and Iím starting to think itís really messing with my recovery. Iíve noticed my body has adapted to the stim feeling so I donít feel the effects as much but itís certainly showing up on my heart monitor watch.

    Iím starting to think itís really exhausting my body much more then Iím giving it credit for. Has anyone else noticed it having a dragging effect on your recovery?

    Tough to say because typically you are in a calorie deficit while using it anyway.

    I’ve been using it off and on for a while, the stimulation effect is gone but I do notice I sweat a shit load while working out on it. But as far as recovery I haven’t noticed anything.

    Agreed, I guess it puts you in a greater deficit then you’d otherwise be in. I’m not taking that into effect enough. Probably putting me further in deficit by another 500+ calories.

    I think it's just the cracked out feeling then going into a nose dive energy wise.

    My regimen was

    1 caffeine 1 bronkaid at 8, noon and 4.

    By 8pm I was ready for bed and felt like I ran a marathon.

    Back in the 90s would buy it otc at the liquor stores for a dollar 50

    package of two under the brand name mini thins

    forgot or probably never even bothered to see the mgs

    will say this though from my experience

    that shit would totally wear me out after only one serving

    keep me up all night the whole bit

    take 5 days to a week to get back to normal

    never could take it more than once or twice a week without feeling like a full blow crack addict
