I have a buddy that makes his own pre-workout. Creatine, caffeine, and a bit of crystal light. Well, he was running late, and had his GF make it for him. She used the 5g creatine scoop on the caffeine, and the 200 mg caffeine scoop on the creatine.
He was quite awake. IIRC, he was close to going to the hospital, and didn’t sleep until like 30 hours later.
Some graphic stuff from Eastern Europe 15-17 years back :
When i was a kid, we didnt have much money, options or an internet that worked internationally. So we had what we had.
The cheapest protein was to go to a chicken farm and buy this powder, thats like some waste product of god knows what. Its basically the same nutritional value as whey, only it was really cheap but… it didnt blend too well… and it also tasted like a gay party did fuck a smelly, dirty homeless guy in the ass, all of them came inside…after which he squatted over a glass and let it all out in a glass… after which he left it in the summer heat, in the sun, for a week, and then microwaved it.
Seriously, i would rather suck dick now, that try to get that shit down. But we were young, poor and ready to whatever.
Basically, most of us drank it over the sink or bathtub, because at least 50% of the time we threw it back up, right back in the blender.
Since we all were going to be Mr.OIympia naturally(like Ronnie and Jay) as soon as we get money for some BSN and Muscletech, we did what needs to be done, and since that stuff tasted so horrible, the fact that it was the 2nd or 3rd time it goes down and up didnt change much and we just threw it up back in the blender and drank it again until it was down and done.
Somewhere around the end of BTM I was so sick of the 12 eggs a day I wanted to try drinking them, but since the bioavailability goes way down when they’re raw I tried blending hard boiled eggs into my shake, and I can still remember the taste. Ugh.
Maybe the pepper would have been tasty in the shake
I screw up with the cinnamon allllll the time… I have 2 young boys so I’m always running around in the kitchen at warp speed. I have accidentally grabbed the black pepper and the taco seasoning many times! Pepper in oatmeal is NOT very good, lol.
I like cheddar cheese and apple together.
I mix Metamucil into my chocolate protein shake in the morning. I feel like it saves time so I don’t have to make 2 drinks and it tastes like one of those Terry’s chocolate oranges
