    Question ECA cycling

    HI all I was just wondering what the most effective ECA cycle would be. You know how much a day and for how long.

    all depends on what ECA ur using - each is a little different as to the ingredients - most of them i wouldnt take more than 30 days strait without a 2 week break if u can. that is if you are using them heavy not just before workouts - that doesnt require cycling IMO

    I'm currently taking 4 Xenadrine capsules a day for 2 weeks. I take 2 in the morning and 2 at lunch. I'll take a week off and then use them for another 2 weeks. If you're using them for weight loss make sure that you're eating your carbs earlier in the day, and keep your protein levels up.

    I like the pure ephedrine, caffine and aspirin. 25 mg/250mg/350mg. early am and lunch. can't take it after 3 cause it keeps me awake.

    I make my own like dumbells too. I take them as late as 6 or 7 and am fine. Depends on what time you go to bed I guess.

    One key thing with ephedrine is that it is a thermogenic, it increases body tempurature, only by 1 or 2 degree but still noticeable. Once the body tempurature returns to normal this indicates it is time to stop ephedrine, increasing dosage will not prove affective. Therefore, if possible keep track of Body Temp.

    I personnally think cycling with Clen 2 week on 2 weeks off is ideal.

    It has some servere side affects, IMO. I hate the feeling of inner unrest, depresses me chronic, probably just me !

    Thermadrene

    I love the stuff! Unfortuneatly I find myself haveing to force myself to eat. One thing that I have not hear anyone mention is that if ANYBODY has ever had any type of history concerning high blood pressure or any type of a seziure disorder you need to leave the Ephedrine and the Themogenics alone. They can only aggervate your medical condition.
    I take two in the morning and leave it at that, anymore and I can not go to sleep at night.

    When I finish my deca /sust/d-bol cycle I will use a thermogenic cocktail like DB101 described...taking all three ingredients seperately. I will play around with the cycling of this. After 8-10 weeks (time off = time on) I plan on running an EQ/clen /T3 stack in preparation for my first ever contest. These threads are very helpful...the more info from actual experiences the better. keep em coming guys and girls.

    When you say, 25/250/350, does that mean, you take that much just once a day. Or is that all at once, THREE times a day ???

    Thnx.

    Everyone responds differently and you have to gauge your dose to just that. Most herbals have teh equivilant of 20mg of ephedrine, 100-200 mg of caffine and 200-300mg of asprin. Many people simply take 1 25mg tab of pure ephedrine, 250mg of caffine and a 325mg asprin. Try the stack both ways and determin which you like better. Many people don't like the separate drugs because they get too jacked up so you decide. Please be careful and one more thing. Give your body a rest for the weekends and for at least a month every 3 months.

    "BUMP"

    When you type "bump" as your post, the thread is automatically "bumped" back to the top of the page. Members do this when there is information in a post/thresd that they want the other members to see (or see again). So by bumping it to the top it is right there for members to open when they first enter the forum. Hope that was not too comfusing

    I do a "make your own" ECA stack as well, 3x per day.

    I run that until I see fat loss start to slow down. Usually between 6 and 8 weeks.


    If, by then, it's not time to start bulking I'll pyramid down for 7-10 days, take a couple weeks off at maint. cals and start over again.

    I've done really long cycles before and have found that although it's still effective as a weight loss / thermogenic, you start to lose a greater percentage of LBM.

    OTC. You can buy it at any pharmacy, in some health food stores, or web. I will bet that All Sport has it.

    Hey guys I took xenodrine in a 2 week cycle (4 pills a day, 2 on empty stomach on wake up and 2 around 2pm on an empty stomach) and I did this cycle for 8 weeks and lost 40 pounds no joke. I weighed 215lbs of fat before and ended up at 175lbs really cut. I did lose some muscle however that was the onoly downfall. Other then that it was an unbelievable fat loss product!
