I was wondering what you guys thought about Ammonia Caps. I never used them before but was thinking of getting a box and trying them on a heavy lift day.

They're not for everyone. I don't feel they help me make the lift really, but it gives you a quick wake up call.

I usually feel like I could walk through a brick wall when I use a cap, but the bad part is it makes me stop thinking. Benching and squatting are so technical, you need to think about what you are doing.

They seem to be alright for deadlifting though.

I like them all around for meets. They definitly help get you motivated & awake.

start w/ an easy hit from far away. if you want more work it closer to your nose and sniff deeper.

The more you do the more comfortable you'll get with them too

I remember being called up next in a Strongman comp. ( the event was odd stone lifts ) and taking too big of a hit ( sniff ) of Ammonia ... ****, I had tears streaming down my face and my eyes were so damn watery I couldn't see which stone I had to try to lift first ! LOL ! But, yeah, they get you going ... after I came to I felt like a superhero. :)

Agreed! I use them on the DL alot, but not on thr BP or Squat...

It gets me sooo hyped I lose focus on technique.

I use them once in a while for heavy DL... just like Travis.. I stop thinking and feel like i can walk thru a brick wall. Thats why i do not use them for benching, and only a little hit for Squat... For Deads I exhale all air and pop the cap then i inhale with the cap right at my nose and its like a 250 shot of nitrous on a little 4 cilinder. hehe!

I love ammonia caps. We have a running joke here that if anything gets injured, all you need to do is rub some blue heat on it and pop a cap. The ultimate in rehab!!

I used to buy it in a little vile so I could just unscrew the lid and put it back on.

I hit ammonia when at all possible. I dont really think it affects your thinking ability. It really just clears your head, but I guess its different for everyone. I've always been able to keep composure even under the most extreme circumstances. So I can take like 3 or 4 hits before squat and get hype and still listen to commands. Its a great tool for me! If I get just the right slap and a big sniff im gonna PR by 35lbs!

I wish i could get a few caps and try instead of waisting $ on a whole bottle lol

Not exactly, a 250 shot would kill a 4 cylinder car. Maybe a 150 on a v8?!
