Pre-workout drink mix
Putting together my next order of bulk supplys, and I'm looking for some feedback on my pre workout drink mix. It will be taken pre w/o (cardio and/or restistance) and w/o stims on off days. I'm currently building muscle on a slight calorie deficit and on a divanil+AI run for the next month and a half. Looking for both aerobic and anaerobic.
Anyone who has any input on possibly adding something here to increase the effectivness of listed ingredients, please let me know.

Why has everybody shied away from Creatine Monohydrate? It looks like people are using every form of a creatine other than monohydrate....and personally, I gain the best off of mono., strength and size both. Is it just the bloat that scares everyone away?

definitely add at least a little caffeine, even 100mg. The chocomine is a nice idea too.

so its got a lot of different bits and pieces in it. I'd start at 300-500mg probably. You could go as high as a gram (and it would feel good), but i'm not sure how it would affect taste at that point since you are going for a drink mix. that would be my major concern at that dose.It contains numerous constituents, including methylxanthines (theobromine, caffeine, and theophylline), biogenic amines (phenylethylamine, tyramine, and according to one source, synephrine), amino acids (phenylalanine, tryptophan, tyrosine, others), minerals (with a high content of magnesium), numerous beneficial antioxidants, and possibly some non-psychoactive cannabanoid-related compounds.

Also was considering adding ACLAR, just forgot to put it on the list.

alcar tastes roughly like crap, acidic bite plus nastiness.
just opened a couple chocomine caps into my mouth, its more a lightly nutty taste than chocolate

yeah, that should feel good. could add either glucuronolactone or taurine as well (or both). they both get commonly used in energy drinks, and have value

Just an update...
Here's what I'm going with, will post results if anyone is interested:
-Glycerol Mono Sterate
I have a good idea on the amounts I'll use of each, as I use most of these products currently anyway, but I'll wait until I toy with it and find the right mix before I post.
