He seems to be talking about daily use of stims and not just in competition.
In that case benefits fade and the issues he mentions are true.
Yeah I missed the part where he said he was used to insane doses. I’ve taken Adderall almost daily for going on 5 years and still smash PRs when taking immediately pre workout but only during comp would be even more of a benefit

Adderall is stress, anxiety, can't eat because stomach hurts, can't lift because feel like a heart attack, can't sleep to recover, generally catabolic

For fitness, absolutely useless, if not detrimental.

*Useless to you* - most would see performance enhancing benefits from it or you just need a much lower dose

Athletes prefer steroids. Although adderall is a super performance enhancer in the extreme short term. It is immediate and the army used to put them (amphetamine) in rations with a warning that said they were only to be used as a last resort in a life or death situation due to the immediate enhancement it provides in the moment.

Also too much of the amphetamines makes you think you are focused but you are zoning out on things other than the task at hand.
So true! I once did some of my worst web development work on phet, I thought I had done a cracking job, but realised how bad it was, after. Strangely, I never worked with them again! For simple tasks you CBA doing, a nice bomb works a treat

On another note, your signature .... I don't know whether to laugh or to just feel for you! Is that a quote from you or what? Unfortunately have far too many crazy stories like that, takes a meeting with old friends to remember most of them.

Same for me, when mixing a track I can do edits high on speed and I am faster and can work for longer, but making sounds and volumes nah horrible.

That's a quote from another thread, it wasn't me, but I thought it was so great I sigged it immediately. IKR though most my stories I gotta take the 5th.

I purposefully don't work out on the days I take adderall because the stress to your heart could really add up over time.

Especially if it's a heavy workout or run.
