NEW - Biotest Spike for Brain & Body power.
(Pete) - I'll not bore you with the usual Biotest hype, but I have a pot of
Biotest Spike open as I type this, and have found it pretty good at keeping
me flying along on the evenings that I am slaving away over a hot keyboard until
the sun comes up. I haven't taken it religiously on a daily basis so can't comment
on the effects of continual use, but did make the mistake of inadvertently taking
a double dose along with a capsule of Inferno which made me extremely "wired"
for about 4 hours. Certainly not something to be recommended though!
Unfortunately the way Biotest have labeled the ingredients within Spike, we
can see it's got caffeine, but at what amount it's impossible to say. However,
It is strongly suggested not to take it with any other stimulant based products.
Here's what one of our fellow posters on uk.rec.bodybuilding had to say about
his recent Biotest Spike experiences at the 2006 Mr. Olympia.
"Spike rocks. Got some free samples last year in
Vegas. Thought they would be sh*t
but was very impressed. End up using 1 tab a night before going out
clubing, and survived on 10 hours sleep over 7 days." - Zaf
If you are looking for something different to your usual train/brain stimulant,
it might be worth a try.

to intense physical activities., or
situations requiring focused concentration.

ANY OTHER STIMULANT OR WEIGHT-LOSS SUPPLEMENT.
