    Recommendation for a Pre-Workout

    Hello,

    I have been thinking about taking pre-workout occasionally for when I workout in the mornings due to less time sleeping sometimes.

    Someone said that this was a good format for finding a pre-workout, so:

    How much caffeine can you tolerate?
    I can drink 3 to 4 cups of coffee a day and be fine, but I am not a regular coffee drinker, maybe 2-3 times a month.

    Do you want one with creatine?
    No

    Do you want a stim bomb?
    I don't know what this is even after looking it up.

    Do you want something for pumps?
    I don't care if it would give me a pump, but if it is not unhealthy, then that would be fine.

    Do you want an all-rounder?
    Something that will give me energy to workout.

    What have you tried before?
    I tried a generic one from GNC and it make me feel like pins and needles, which was fine after I got used to it.

    What did you like about them?
    They do not stain teeth like coffee, otherwise I would just drink coffee.

    What did you hate?
    That some of the bottles contain very few servings < 10.

    What flavours do you like?
    I tried cherry limeade and it was okay

    What price range?
    Nothing above $30
    I am new to weight lifting and fitness. Please source multiple opinions before making your decision.

    That someone was me and it wasn’t meant to be a good format for finding a pre-workout, I was simply making the point that what I think is the best won’t be what you think is the best etc as we all want different things.

    I’m glad to see you found it useful though.

    I like this format. I've never used pre-workout stuff, but never really knew where to begin. Currently, I have a large latte that I mix with creatine. Suppose it's better than nothing.

    Personally, I'd look for whatever has the most caffeine and then just change how much you take based on how much you need--stretches it out a bit more. For example, mine has 400mg per scoop. I very rarely feel the need to full scoop, so I do a half. That brings it from 30 servings per container to 60, but the price is the same as if I bought one that just has 200mg per scoop anyways.

    Based on your post OP. I'd just use caffeine tablets. $.03ish per serving if all you want is feeling of energy.

    I just tried Cutler Prevail recently and really like it, its slightly over $30 but you get 40 servings per container, and you can stretch that out a lot further if you can get away with using half a scoop.
    All it takes is consistency, effort, proper nutrition, good programming, and TIME.

    I used to use preworkouts and think they do a great job. But if you're just looking for energy, go for Caffeine tabs. That's what I've been using since the past couple of years. Does the job. I pair it with a standalone Citrulline supplement occasionally for pumps.

    Caffeine tab brands I recommend: Kaged Muscle (200mg Caffeine), Allmax (200mg Caffeine) and MuscleTech (225mg - currently using).

    Citrulline (for pumps): Kaged Muscle

    If you still want a preworkout, I recommend Blue Star PPK. A little expensive but they do a 50% off quite often.

    I don't think we need thread bumps for recommendations by 16 year olds who have (mis)used one pre workout
