Default Preworkouts / supplements

Does anyone here take any? I usually take a pre-workout before lifting. I also mix in some BCAAs (not a must have for me, but I have samples I am finishing up) and make a protein drink after working out.

I really do like pre-workouts and they help me through a lifting session. I am stronger than I have ever been, but that might also be attributed to going to the gym consistently since about September with a buddy of mine who helps with my lifts. I know supplements and the like can be bad for the body so I try and drink plenty of water (at least 64 oz / day) and take fish oil pills as I've read it helps with flushing out the kidneys.

Default Re: Preworkouts / supplements

I personally don't take any preworkout supplements, but I have, and I really didn't notice too much of a difference. All I take before working out is a bottle of water. Once I get my music going, my energy level rises.


Now when I'm bulking, I may eat some oats before working out. A nice slow digesting carb will give you plenty of natural energy.

C4 by Cellucor is an excellent pre-workout product. Been taking it for months and it gives me a kick and extra energy. After working out, I take Dark Matter...has protein, creatine, etc...and have noticed excellent results from it.

Default Re: Preworkouts / supplements

A lot of those preworkout supplements are nothing more than loaded with caffine, I used them once and it had me wired for 12 hours, didn't fall asleep until 3am and had to get up at 630am. Water and electolytes are all you need. I do strength as a supplement to my triathlon training but I don't do the heavy lifting anymore.

I usually eat something light an hour to two hours before lifting.

I do cardio on a mostly empty stomach.

IMO BSN delivers. The best supplement depends on what you are going for too though; if you're bulking or cutting. Then stack different supplements to help you get to that goal. You kinda need to determine what your body type is first and then determine what your lifting goals are(Fight Club ripped or Patrick Willis big and ripped). It's all really fascinating stuff and it sounds like you are really getting into lifting, so determining that kind of lifter you are will really keep you from wasting your money based on someone else's testimonial. Like the guys that claim it's ALL garbage. Here is a link for some of the most affordable supplements, compare to GNC prices and you'll see they are about half the price.
