    Any agreement on pre-workout supplements?

    Arguments are all over the place, from no not needed , to can't do with out them, or just drink coffee.

    I use c4 sometimes redline and take a break every few months for a few weeks just as I do with creatine.

    So is there any studies out there that show the possible body damage or benefits?
    Is there proof that coffee works just as well?

    Any help would be great, thanks.

    C4 is my go to pre. I use her for a month on and then off usually. I can workout without it but i do feel my best workouts are on it.

    I've tried a bunch of them. Favorite is easily c4.

    Caffeine and you're good. Pre-workout supps are over rated. Most people develop a dependency on them and cant hit the gym without it. i was once like that, but not anymore.

    I typically just take pre workout on big workout days (back, legs, and chest). And I take a week off about every 8 weeks. I definitely have better workouts with it, especially when I work all day before I workout.

    I sometimes sip a protein shake with almond milk, banana, pb (1.2 serving) and instant nestle cafe slight slight slight drizzle of honey. Works really well too

    sometimes I'm afraid this is me. I take it before every workout, can't even remember last time I didn't. I could probably hit the gym without it, but I don't know, I just don't WANT to.

    A great preworkout is to half way jerk it. Don't bust. Then go to the gym, you'll be a ****in beast!!!

    I've heard that if you watch porn and just go workout without doing anything else you'll have a good workout.

    Pre Workouts ruined the quality of my sleep. After cutting them immediately after using them regularly, working out didn't have nearly the same level of motivation, so I definitely think you develop a dependence. Eventually, quality of sleep led to better workouts and better gains... I think sleep, nutrition, and a proper warm up is the real recipe to energy and motivation in workouts.

    All that said, I still have a tub of the old jack3d and a tub of the old presurge unleashed and they still get busted out for things like PR's and super no motivation days, but very rarely - couple times a year.

    I'm a fan of pre workout supplements and SuperPump works the best for me. Now that I'm in my 30's I feel my energy levels are not as great compared to a decade ago. I definitely feel the boost to lift heavier and get in a few more reps. I'm not dependent on it and it doesn't effect my sleep. Two thumbs up.

    ARGININE is one of the most popular pre-workout ingredients

    This...

    Another thing with pre workouts that most normal years don't know, and this goes for a lot of other supplements, but specifically for pre workouts, is that if they remain in your system, while drinking alcohol, a lot of this crap can turn into some pretty nasty stomach acids.

    That stuff rips your stomach lining right up.

    I just drink some tea as a pre workout.
