    First Cycle - Epistane - Back Pumps - Advice

    Hey guys, here to hopefully get some tips and suggestions from you guys with the cycle I am currently running.

    I am on my 4th week of epi-strong.. goal is lean mass gains and to drop some body fat. First 2 weeks were 30mg a day, and then bumped to 45mg the last 2 weeks. Plan is to bump to 60mg a day for the last 2 weeks. Everything is going great for the most part.. except for 1 thing. Back pumps!

    They bother primarily on Leg and Back Days. Squatting, Deadlifting, or any type of bent over row is nearly impossible. I also play in a competitive basketball league twice per week, and the pain I get while playing is paralyzing. Can't move and just have to lay down and stretch. So what do you guys suggest to help alleviate these?

    Right now, I take 10mg a Taurine twice per day. Once in the morning, and the second before working out or playing basketball. Also taking potassium through out the day.. and am drinking plenty of water.. close to 2 gallons a day. That's what my research says to do, but nothing is seeming to help.

    Hoping some of you may have some tricks up your sleeve to help me out a bit. Thank you all so much!

    I believe you said you were taking 10mg's twicw per day, maybe a typo...Bro you need at least 2 grams a day, then the back pumps will alleviate....

    Possibly a potassium supplement may offer some relief.
