    Don't overlook this post you guys. Ron makes one of the better points here because he is addressing how caffeine actually works. Caffeine just antagonizes the adenosine receptor. So it doesn't give you energy per se, but rather prevents you from becoming tired.

    I'm with you on this Seek. Maybe we're just ol' school but give my 20-24 oz mug of coffee before the gym and I'm good.

    not trying to pick a fight but I think it’s a fair question to ask.
    I doubt caffeine is in the same room as AAS. Now I know you were not implying that but you know they are worlds apart buddy. Personally, I think there's a psychological effect to a big cup of coffee; it's signals the commencement of my workout.

    I wish caffeine kept me from getting tired. Crap doesn’t have a noticeable effect on me.

    Me neither, other than I'm clearly addicted to it as if I go long without I get incredible headaches.

    take a 4wk break and let your adrenal glands get a rest

    200 mg will have a big effect than.


    I buy 200, 200 mg caffeine pills from walmart and take 1/4 serving of a pre workout and half of a 200mg pill. Does me good.
