it seems my post has disappeared?
As ruggerlife alluded to my original post, warm ups are great. they are a natural way to raise your heart rate which is basically what stimulants (energy drinks, coffee etc.) do.
if you really need a stimulant, coffee is fine and is the cheapest route.
it’s active ingredient is caffeine, the same as most effective energy drinks.
you’ll get the same effects and side effects.
if coffee doesn’t give you a pep after a while, neither will an energy drink.
caffeine is caffeine regardless of it’s source.
it will still stimulate your CNS after the alert feeling subsides though, you will just be used to it.
it’s like alcohol. when you first start drinking, 5 beers got you all bamboozled.
if you are a drinker, five beers will wet your mouth a little and you’ll function fine, but your blood/alcohol content will be the same, your reaction times will be delayed the same (you just won’t notice it as much because you learn to compensate) and your breath will register the same if the police get you.
caffeine is the same but a stimulant rather than a depressant.
