Pre workouts suck lol. Filled with caffeine and stimulants. I don't like them anymore. Used to enjoy SSN Creapump though.

A good BCAA filled pre workout is more then enough. Think Nutritech has a berry flavor one.

Cant have them anymore due to blood pressure. But besides that, you don't really need a pre workout. good oats and raisins before gym is more than enough. Maybe on tough days like legs yes but that's the only real benefit.

I have tried them all bro.. Best for me is a product called Berserker by Titan labs.. Every time I buy the stuff I ask the dude in the shop if its legal > he assures me it is! LOL! It's crazy shit. Pretty much like jacked 3D but more intense.
It costs R379. Not sure if I can say where I get it from on here?

Yeah MCJ, I agree with you. I force myself to have them only when I really feel I need a boost. I found I was becoming dependent on them to train. Couldn't train without them.. So now I'll have it maybe once or twice a week. I also found it suppresses my apatite, badly for a few hours.

I have to agree with MCJ, preworkouts can help, but eventually you get used to the caffeine and in the end I felt I was just wasting my money. Haven't been using PWOs for some time now, don't think you need them.

Creatine and BCAAs are awesome to have in a preworkout, but any caffeine or things acting as vasoconstrictors are not really beneficial, and usually the insulin spike required for creatine uptake (if it's monohydrate) is not what you're looking for before and during your workout, the insulin spike is much more beneficial at the end of the workout.

If you're looking for a clean, jitter free pre-workout that gives you excellent focus and a great boost, Shotgun is the way to go.

If you want that hectic buzz-filled, Parkinson's type jittery workout with excellent focus and boost, then muscle marinade is your choice

Berserker isn't legal for sport but legal for purchase in SA.
Contains 1.3 Dimeth or 1.3,7 Trimeth in the case of berserker,which is a banned stimulant.

I'm not a huge fan of pre's but here's my top 5

1)Ripped Freak Pre-Workout
2)CTD Labs Noxipro
3)Titan Labs Berserker
4)MP Assault (New one coming soon though :D)
5)BSN NO Xplode

All of which you can get at Chrome!

Also ask the guy for Ampli-pump,it's a pre-workout amplifier.
Works like a bomb!

I have not, but will give them a try.

Also check SupWorld they are slightly cheaper with some products. Example, compare MP Assault

Their service is good, never had issues.

My problem with preworkouts is that most these days seem to contain DMAA.

At first that didn't bother me, in fact, I thought as long as I'm not competing in pro sports, there should be nothing wrong with it, in fact, I felt the stuff gave that extra kick needed.

I won't be using it anymore, had completely the opposite desired effect.

For me, the ideal preworkout will contain BCAA's, Creatine Ethyl Ester (I prefer monohydrate, but it requires an insulin boost, which is much more preferable after your workout) and amino acids such as arginine.

The whole mental boost thing is overrated IMO, I tended to almost rely on it, until I came on this forum and read the best preworkout is a bowl of oats, raisins along with a good motivational video :P

After a year off the stuff, I'm definitely enjoying my workouts without the need for stimulants.

This is not meant to be offensive to anyone who does use a preworkout, just my 2 cents :)

creatine ethyl ester is complete shit. only creatine that actually works is CREAPURE creatine which is 99.5% pure creatine made in germany, its contained in the ON Creatine and Nutrex Creatine drive. the rest is just placebo and shit because companies always try to market new forms of creatine to gain more customers,
