    Best Pre-workout supp with no Stims?


    Hello,

    I am a big fan of NoShogun and also White Flood - but I find it if take these too late at night they can make it hard for me to sleep properly/get a deep sleep.

    whats people's advice for a great pre-workout supplement that doesn't have any stims? a bit of sugar is ok, but not stims

    thanks!

    I would give hemavol a look; it has always gotten great consistent feedback in the past and to date. It's a non-stim NO designed to increase plasma volume leading to heightened vascularity and fullness.

    I haven't used either of them, but I've heard good things about PreMax and Caf Free Ragnarok.

    If you're looking for more endurance effects, Drive or Cre-02 are excellent - and also help re strength and leaning, etc.

    Otherwise, there is Pre Max.

    OR you could create your own stack:
    * Drive - dose as directed
    * IGF-2 - dose as directed
    * Choline Bitartrate - 1g
    * ALCAR - 2g
    * Tyrosine - 1g

    Premax or Ultima are the top contenders in my opinion.

    ^^^ Ultima is a great choice. I almost never see negative reviews.



    my favorite stim free pre-wo I've tried is HemaVol + CBol. The combo is nuts!

    There is a caffeine free version of MST Ragnarok Ultra, which is pretty good.

    I have used premax, loved it, but also a bit pricey, if you can't shell out the shillings for it I would look into a gplc based product, or even just buy some in bulk, works well for me when I want non stim.

    Drive gives some really good energy for being stim free.

    Agreed. GPLC would be another good choice, throw in some tyrosine and gluconorolactone(sp) and you would be set.

    Why not just go for Synthesize, exact blend without stimulants?

    I can't take any of the stim related pre-workout products out there, it's just too much. I have always liked Drive. But I have been itching to try Pre Max because of the hydrolyzed casein.

    I am 100% with the Ultima recommendation. I was using that and only that for a month and still made gains. It is highly underrated and needs to be used by all at least once to see how effective it is.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

    I totally forgot about adding L-tyrosine, I used to use blast and poseiden, gave me great workouts and not too heavy on the stims.

    I have heard of some people mixing premax and assault or asgt, one option could be to use only premax when working out at night, and when you are planning on using stims do the mix. I still have to try the mix though.

    i would really agree with pre max or caffeine free ragnarok, both have potent doses of what you need, although i do add bulk beta alanine for lactic acid buffering, some good ol creapure creatine for strength and ATP production to pre-max

    ragnarok already has a great dose of creatines in it and people love it, ive tried samples before and liked it, although personally i need my stims

    Only stim-free I have used is PreMax, and I have stated all over these boards how much I love it.

    Ragnarok Caff Free version has received good reviews as well.
    Just inject.

    I have to look up the ingredient profile on ultima and see how well it would complement my premax, interesting though it is.

    I would love to try hemavol, I work 7pm-7am and sometimes workout after my shift, rough times. I have been around the block with preworkout supplements. Here is a link to my glycobol log I did a little while back. Glycobol solo, it begins now

    I have never tried it - but I would also support this. I have always wanted to give a container of this a go, and although I have surely spent thousands upon thousands of dollars on supplements over the past decade, I just can't bring myself to punch my 16 digits in. It is still a great looking product nonetheless!
