Pre Workout Supps. What Do You Take?

Just wondering what people take for pre workout? i normally do the following…

Creatine
L-Arginine
Caffine tablet
Leucine
BCAA

Use to have D-Ribose but ran out…

Just looking to share ideas and learn…

Cheers…

i know caffeine tablets are nuts. i took a few awhile back from my friends bottle… and i was going nuts! and im not sensitive at all to caffeine.

im pretty sure your list there
(Creatine
L-Arginine
Caffine tablet
Leucine
BCAA )

is basically SUPERPUMP 250 LOL!

add some splenda and some cheap flavouring and your set bro.

-50: Power Drive
-30ish: greek yogurt w/ raw oats in it
-10: Finibar
during: water
immediately after: glass of OJ
after OJ: 40g whey, 2 slices of white bread
+90: meal

…been working for me.

L-Tyrosine. Now that looks interesting, might give that a blast!!

Before my workout I always take Alpha GPC, handful of BCAA’s and two BETA-7, and two ReceptorMax. I also (mix it up for variety) take either Surge Recovery or Surge Workout Fuel with Creatine or a FINiBar.

And, of course, Surge Recovery and Creatine BCAA’s after training as well.

before i take Surge Recovery, during i drink Surge Workout Fuel and fast twitch, after i drink Grow! Whey protein and eat pasta.

T-90 min meal can of tuna and an apple, or 40g protein and 1/2 bagel
T-30 min jacked/caffeine, Surge Workout Fuel x1 scp

during (sip in 32oz aquafina bottle)
10g Glutamine
10g Purple Wraath (all essential amino acids, beta alanine)
5g creatine

  • I used to have another serving of SWF during the workout, but consistently crashed from too much insulin so I removed it and just have it 30min prior.

Post
2 scoops Surge Recovery
10g glutamine
5g creatine
5g leucine

60min later
5oz chicken
1 cup rice
1 cup veggies

then back to every 3 hours :slight_smile:

At the moment it’s Surge Workout Fuel, Alpha-GPC, and FINiBAR.

Glucuronolactone and tyrosine get mixed in with my protein/carbs about 20-30mins prior to training.

The above is pretty good, but the best stimulant I’ve ever used during a session is nicotine (lozenges). They can get me a few more reps on most sets.

3 myoshock
3 1000mg L-Arginine
2 1000mg Vitamin C

and currently an Arimatest.

I’ve heard about cycling aspirin into a preworkout as well to thin your blood. Only thing is you’ll probably be taking them at a later age, so building a tolerance now would be bad. I don’t know about the cycling of it though.

I eat dinner about 60-90 before. Take a caffeine pill around 20 min before. Protein shake when I get home. It works.

MD Shake; Creatine; Caffeine Pill; 1 or 2 Caffeine-Free Spike

Chicken and Sweet Potatoes

L-Tyrosine! Fantastic, keeps me focused and the energy just keeps on comming…
