This comes from my Flex Magazine:
Caffeine has been shown to act directly on muscles by triggering an increased calcium ion release from the sarcoplasmic reticulum. Traslation: in theory, this will lead to stronger muscle contraction and greater froce production by the muscle. Also a greater focus and productivity during workout, which all bodybuilders can benefit from. Recommendation is 200-400 milligrams consumed 45 mins prior to training. Look for products that contain caffeine anhydrous for best results.
I just summed up the article. Hope this helps.

Yes, Caffeine has vasodilating properties. I get extremely vascular when I take it.

is that a yes to making creatine less effective or a yes to caffine does give you pumps???

I would argue that it may enhance creatine absorption
since caff stimulates the pancreas to release insulin and the insulin puts your body in an "absorptive" state
the only thing is the diuresis by the caffeine but that can be alleviated with increase H20 consumption

Holly wood more is not better with Caffeine
300 would be the max to take at one sitting any more would be over kill in my humble opinion
caffeine is to get you alert, help burn fat while you exercise, and to increase adrenalin
thats about it it not a "pump" product
more can be harmfull please use it sparingly
300 mgs is like 2-3 cups of strong coffee

The magazine said caffeine was a plus. Guess I should have listen. Going to pick me up some tommorrow though .

i train 5on 2off, do you think that the 2 days off without caffine intake will allow my body every week to become more "sensitive" to it so i dont get used to the drug???

if you dose it ONCE (just pre workout) per day you should be fine
its when you take more that the results become less
