    Well you need to pick one specific event. Pre-race will differ from pre-contest

    Ok, pre-explosive movement: creatine, betaine, arachidonic acid, amentoflavone, caffeine
    Pre-endurance: beta-alanine, nitrates, citrulline, rhodiola rosea, caffeine

    I've seen it in App Nut's Beta Test. It looks interesting. Are there any other products or just a standalone where we can find it?

    I train MMA and used to powerlift. For me, the staples are creatine mono, agmatine, rhodiola, vit D, and fish oil.

    I never really got anything from Rhodiola, what do you "feel" from it?

    Everybody seems to like creatine, how should I dose it? Never been a fan before but willing to give it another try

    This question seems to come up a lot lately now that rhodiola is gaining popularity. Initially the "feel" will be a boost of energy. If too much is consumed, then that can turn into real lethargy because there is a bell curve. You need to assess the right dose for you (I like 200-250 2x a day). After a couple weeks, the energy boost feeling subsides and then there isn't much "feel", but rather a sustained energy level throughout the day. It also helps your body adapt and combat stress as it is a powerful adaptogen. In turn, you get more out of sleep, fight cortisol, and don't get the lulls that many people do throughout the day.

    I added it in about 8 years ago and I used to suffer from what I call "drag ass" because I was in a very hard training mode and I'd just drag ass all the time because my body always needed more rest no matter how much I gave it. Rhodiola was recommended by a guy I was training with and within 2-3 weeks, I found that I was getting more energy throughout the day and sleeping better. Then I realized I was able to deal with stress better and not get bogged down.

    Hope that helps. It is a great supplement that I highly recommend.

    Forskohlin 125 mg per day with Rhodiola or ginseng(s). PeptoPro/EAA combo is also the bomb for endurance.

    Creatine mono, HMB-FA, Arachidonic Acid, Betaine Anhydrous and 5th would have to be either beta alanine or COP.
