    I haven't tried it but it is meant to be great for being able to continue to train with intensity, reduce fatigue, so it is a pre-workout supp.

    It is one on my list to try. I am very partial to very basic supps, especially when they are just amino acids.

    To be honest, I never really 'feel' many supplements working, I notice when I stop taking them that I may feel slightly different.

    I have read a few that says it does.

    Do you have any links to that? Or abstracts?

    I will see what I can dig out as well.

    Re: Beta-Alanine

    I use it semi-regularly. I feel it does make a difference on higher intensity days, such as my Back day, or if I am running post-lifting. It's not very expensive, and some supp companies offer it free with other purchases. I recommend at least giving it a shot yourself.

    Dosing: 1/2 tablespoon in my first liter bottle of water about 20 minutes prior to the gym. If I have a heavy run, then I add another 1/2 post-run in with my water.

    Re: Beta-Alanine

    i use it as i have received a bit for free
    you "feel" it with in 15 mins, tingling in arms or face which can be annoying
    i may have noticed a small difference on heavy lift days
    iv heard marathon runners benefiting more out of it

    its not something i would pay for

    You'll notice a bigger difference if your style of training is more type I slow twitch oriented (time under tension, extended reps, drops sets, burns, etc) (or even type II explosive to absolute failure).

    I love it

    citrulline malate/argine MT stomach wait 20 minutes, then

    rALA
    kre-alkalyn
    HMB
    ALC
    Vit C'
    beta-alanine (about 2 grams)
    BCAA 5 grams
    leukic (basically expensive leucine)
    grapeseed extract
    niacin

    and start sipping mixture of
    whey
    waxy maaize starch
    leucine
    bcaa
    glutamine
    glycine
    beta alanine

    tru end of workout
