Pre-Workout Supplements

I never take pre-workout supplements and still manage to get a good workout in. Sometimes I'll be tired and stop reps shorts of my goal or skip abs or skip an exercise altogether.

Then...I orders ON's Whey and it came with a sample jar of ON's AmiNO Energy. I have been taking this for about 2 weeks straight...right before I hit the gym and I've noticed a huge improvement. I am banging out more reps, more exercises, more weight, and staying in the gym longer and hitting it way harder.

My question is...do any of you guys use PW supps? I just want an idea of what else is out there EVEN THOUGH ON's AmiNO Energy works awesomely! I am considering purchasing this again but in the full-size jar.

Just want some feedback on what is good and what is bunk!

I have used preworkouts for a couple years now on and off. They do increase endurance,strength etc. They can become psychologically and even physically addicting. Your best bet is to use them no more than 3x per week. I built up a huge tolerance and was doing a preworkout plus a coffee right before I hit the gym. Now Im on cycle and skip the preworkout and just have a cup of coffee. If you're looking for recommendations my favorite preworkout thus far is Noxipro by CTD. Good luck Georgia!

That is extremely interesting and intriguing that you bring in the psychological part into play. I may have to try to control my usage to just 2-3 days of working out instead of every single day that I hit the gym.

Yea lol I was using them so much that I couldn't go to the gym unless I had a preworkout drink. Now I'm on cycle so I kind of traded them in for juice=P~. If you do jump into other ones definitely test your tolerance by starting off with a small scoop maybe even half depending on the particular product. Jacked was one of my first...then neurocore....hemorage....Craze....Noxipro...there are so many.

I used to drink coffee. I don't even do that anymore. I've trained for longer than many guys have been alive, it's just something I do now. I don't need any help or even a spotter. Being a old guy has it's privileges ;-) Now pass the Geritol and Viagra.

I find that taking some creatine pre workout can be very effective.

I like NO shotgun, its got caffeine and also 20gs of amino acids in it that keep me fueled, and provides good pumps.

I always used jacked or assault, but got a free sample of this also. I was surprised by how well it worked. I had not heard anything about it so I figured it would so-so at best. Turns out I was wrong. I am going to give it another shot. The one thing Ive noticed about any of the PW stuff is, if you are already dog shit tired its not going to turn the world around and make you feel great. If you are feeling good but not great, it makes a nice difference.

Big Worm is correct from my perspective. Been running a sample of "XPand" and I've had this exact experience. I only run it when I train on weekends but immediately noticed that when I was already over-tired it just made me edgy but when I was feeling 'so-so' it elevated my focus and intensity quite well. No substitute for sleep, but when used in a targeted way I think they can have their place.

i tried jack3d and it had absolutely no effect. Then I tried Assault and get huge pumps and focus. I'm only taking it on days that I'm working out so as not to develop a resistance to it.

Stay away from stuff that has geranium root or 1,3 dimethylamine, like jacked, it's not good for heart
