HOT-ROX and Lifting Strength


#1

This might just be all in my head but ever since I started taking a HOT-ROX pill about 30 minutes before a workout I seem to be able to lift more during the workout. Is this just a (good) side effect from the caffeine content?

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/hot-rox-extreme"target=“new”>HOT-ROX is primarily a fat burner though the Carbolin-19 component does have anabolic properties. This article gets into the details: http://www.t-nation.com/supplements/burn-fat-pile-on-muscle-with-forskolin But if this is just an immediate effect in workout performance, then it’s likely just a nice side effect of the two stimulatory agents in Hot-Rox.

Interesting, so would getting something like Carbolin-19 be a good way of keeping the effect even after my HOT-ROX fat loss phase is complete?

It’s mostly likely the stimulants in HOT-ROX that is increasing your strength because what it sounds like is that you a noticing an acute effect rather than an effect that has accumulated over a period of time.

Stimulants will increase your strength especially when you are not use to using them. HOT-ROX contains caffeine which is a strong and effective stimulant in and of itself, there’s also yohimbine in the formula which has a synergistic effect with the caffeine and thus the two can increase the stimulatory effects of each other.

If let’s say you want to stop using fat burners (which HOT-ROX is one) but still want that stimulant effect, Spike looks like a good product to use as well as Brain Candy with caffeine.

<a href="http://www.t-nation.com/store/products/carbolin-19"target=“new”>Carbolin 19 has several great effects for anyone who lifts. Some find it mildly stimulating, but its main effects are thyroid stimulation, increased testosterone, increased metabolism and increased lean-body mass. So people use it for both mass phases and dieting phases. It could be the boost in T that are giving you the effects you like as well.
