Best preworkout?

Hi,

I am looking for a strong preworkout that will give me lots of focus and energy. I am not big on pre-WOs, and my first and last was Craze briefly which I thought was pretty good before it was banned.

Now I am looking for something similar. Asking at bb.com always yields BS replies from reps themselves so I thought I would ask here.


Thanks.

I usually take creatine and do a combination of dancing/stretches.

MAX-OUT will do the trick.. gets you amped yet very focused at the same time.. one of the strongest pre's I've had.

200 mg caffeine pill. Cheap as chips and works just like an PWO.

In the past, I used to stack it with ephedrine. Turned me into a monster. But not sure eph is still available???

Forget taking industrial chemicals and just jog for 10 min on a treadmill or do the elliptical.

If I buy commercial I get one of the following
C4, assault or mr Hyde.

Right now I am making my own consisting of
400mg caffeine (200caps for 9 bucks)
6g creatine (a pound for 20 bucks)
Beta-alanine (pound for 20ish bucks)
Flavoring of kool aid or Gatorade.

The raw ingredients can all be bought at canadian protein.ca for roughly the prices i list. Free shipping on orders over 100 bucks. Protein powder is cheaper there too, but everything comes in backs. If I order Monday night, I'll have my stuff by Wednesday or Thursday.

When I first started I actually used Walmart Six Star preworkout.. surprisingly it works really well and gives you a nice pump

c4 is pretty good, gives you the tingles because of the beta alanine. I really like Phd wired as well.

Got a bunch of sample packs from the popeyes appreciation sale this weekend that i will be trying.

Preworkout is addicting

It is available in 8mg doses only. 24 mg has been banned. And this stuff is dirt cheap - 600 8mg pills for 25 bucks.

Just coffee for me.
I also take 5g of BCAA just before, and sip 10-15g of BCAA during.

Anything that gives me heart palpitations, honestly, scares me.
I would never touch something like ephedra.

I'm a big fan of GAT NITRAFLEX. 200mg caffeine per serving many flavors.

I've tried tons of pre-workout mixes in my prime 10-15 years ago and just recently picked up a few to get some mojo back for the gym.

Some that I picked up recently that come to mind. C4 Extreme - garbage, NO-Explode -always has been weak and still is. The only one that gave me a significant boost was a lesser known pre-workout made by Revolution Nutrition and the product is called Speed from GNC. I got flavour Peach Mango and it tastes literally like those popular Peach candies without any of the sourness.

I also got a few samples for PharmaFreak's Ripped. This stuff was great for the first hour but ends up really coming hard on you when you're done and it made me quite sick

The 'kick' from Speed is not like the same ones from 10-15 years ago before Health Canada started banning all the crazy substances but it's enough to get you going without the nasty taste.

You mean Mr Hyde? It seems like Hyde is not available anymore.
