Slin BEFORE workout for increased pump... advisable?
I've read articles where bros wrote about injecting insulin before a workout to increase the workout pump. The thought of having mind blowing slin induced pumps during a training session while not being on juice is tempting. I just started using 10iu's to aid nutrient transport PWO.
I was thinking to take 5iu's subq before a workout and 5iu's IM immediately after. During my 45min-1hr workout instead of water, I'd sip on a solution high in dextrose with glutamine mixed in as well. I'd keep glucose tabs on me just incase I still felt any signs of hypo....
Is this a good idea or is the risk simply not worth the pump? Thanks

I have heard of people using slin pre-workout, but I would not recomend this to anyone as it can be highly dangerous. If you were to do it, then I would have a carbohydrate drink on you at all times during the workout.
I see where you are coming from by doing Sub-Q injections pre-workout and IM PWO. But IMO, I would just stick to IM PWO because I dont think you would really benefit that much extra if you did take a dose pre-workout. So if you are not benefiting that much extra then its not worth the risk. I start taking risks when the extra benefits become worth it. And in this case, I dont think they are.

Yea most/if not all people that were using this practice were not using Humalog, but Humulin-R, and sub-q. This way the onset would be much slower, and the pump WOULD be crazy.
Either way, that is still a dangerous practice, and there is no evidence that it has benefits over using humalog PWO.
with humulin-r its dangerous, i heard somebody try it with humalog IM, now THAT is just suicidal!
