    Cialis as part of a preworkout?

    I havent studied this out at all nor do I know exactly how cialis works, but my source gave me a free bottle and said that taking half a dose pre-worlout gives better muscle pumps.....ive tried it for 2 weeks and I am not a believer. Anyone else hear anything like this?

    Cialis is a much more potent vasodilator than all of those NO supplements. Do you get pumps from those?
    But really, who cares? Pumps don't do anything besides look cool.
    One of my friends has the most amazing genetics for strength and size (won states in high school wrestling and could bench twice his weight naturally) and he doesn't even get pumps...at all. He looks exactly the same when resting as when he is lifting, and it obviously isn't holding him back.

    I have heard of it. I personally have never tried it. I will say i barely notice anything from a pump due to a vasodilator. As Bonaparte says its mostly for show. Sure i feel my muscles are tighter but i notice no increase in weights or anything.

    I stick to caffeine preworkout just for the energy boost

    Everytime I go pick up a RTD preworkout drink, they always try and push the NO products. Im always like, I want to lift more, not look like I lift more.

    viagra definitely gives you a better pump i tried it a few hours before a workout did not notice anything different but taken the night before (for a good sesh with the wife) pumps are awesome so in actual fact you get a double pump!

    OP, if NO products give you better pumps in the gym (you are a responder) then Cialis will do much the same. I get insane pumps in the gym when using preworkout mixes (including an extra dose of AAKG). That being said, when I use Cialis on the occasional weekend my veins are popping (more pronounced) even without touching a weight. As stated before, Cialis is a vasodialator and a damn good one at that!

    I've noticed some pumps from it too. But like stated they don't mean much. Be careful with cialis especially research stuff. Ramp your dose up carefully. It can cause terrible headaches at higher doses.

    I never use any preworkout....ive tried but they usually make be bloat and I dont tolerate caffeine well.....when I have tried I dont think I really noticed a diff. I like pumps though.....I like the way they feel.

    There was testing going on last year financed by some sanctioning body re: viagra and international athletic competitions.
    Saw video of cyclists at U of PA (?) being monitered to determine if V-type drugs give an advantage in endurance events.

    The tests involved breathing not muscle pump or muscle function.Viagra helps with your breathing, you take in more air because it opens the tubes to your lungs.

    But the entire cardio system is involved plus the largest muscle groups in
    body. I believe test was looking at the oxy. uptake which could be affected
    by vaso+ aiding in blood flow to the muscle cells. You raised a good point
    and I'll try to get the lab reports.

    From what I have been reading the international sports bodies have not yet banned these products. Looks like their use
    gives another mph when cycling the alpine hills for sure. The subject is interesting, (I am sure the pharms are loving another
    market!)

    Cialis does increase natural testosterone over regular prolonged use. Viagra increases cardio AT HIGHER ELEVATION ONLY. I can quote the studies for both if need b.

    After posting to this thread I obtained 1 100mg Viagra tablet. Got us this morning, did 30 minutes intense cardio, walked dog for 1 hour. Forty five
    minutes before hitting the gym I took the Viagra. I started out with a
    series of chin ups. Struggle 2nd set. Did pulldowns. Lat pulldowns were very
    hard. Took long for breathing to return to normal. Left early. Feeling punk
    I took my BP. It read 115/65, for me way too low. Work best at 125/75 area.
    For me personally it did not work out. But, give it a try. I read that certain
    Tour de France riders were caught with syringes with Viagra in solution.
