Default Pre-Workout Supplements

Ok I'm doing shopping and I'm down to my final 3 pre-work outs ... 1. Super Pump 2. No-Explode 3. Jack3d ... I've also read the idea of buying separate supplements and making a pre-workout drink I'd rather just save the time and buy something premixed...
Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven: / Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

I used to take NO explode, it worked well, but I felt like I wanted to flip tables over when I was in class before my workout. Also, made my stomach a little queezy. I've never actually tried Jacked, but have been wanting to do so. I know a few people that have used it and have liked it. I tried a sample of Muscle Marinade (kind of like jacked), which I liked a lot too. I say go with Jacked. However, keep in mind what works for some may not work for others. Some places may offer samples of things if your willing to try that first.

I liked Super Pump 250 the best, but they stopped making it in the larger size (might have stopped making it all together, not sure) so I switched to Super Pump MAX. MAX isn't as good and the pumps got noticeably smaller compared to the 250. For that reason, I gave Jack3d a shot. The first day had my heart feeling like it was going to jump out of my chest during cardio, but in the 30 or so doses after that (I'm still on my first tub) I haven't felt anything bad at all. sent me a big free sample of N.O. Xplode for some reason, probably because I order lots of pre workout supps and haven't given a shot yet, so I am going to try that before going to my next tub of Jack3d. Will let you know how that goes once I do.

I'd recommend Super Pump 250 if you can find it, if not, skip the MAX and try Jack3d.

I personally dont use a pre workout supplement. about 45 minutes prior, I will just take half a prolab caffeine tab, dissolve it under my tounge (not sure if it gets into me faster, but for some sick reason I like the bitter taste)...I also sip my protien shake before/during first half my workout for me, and is cheaper

No preworkout here either, just start drinking my shake a few minutes prior and drink the remainder throughout the workout. Works for me. I am always amped for my workouts.

I drink a 16 oz coffee about an hour before workout. Sometimes I'll add some beta alanine but usually forget too. That's about it for me.
