    Try this out and save a few bucks.

    Truthfully you could probably cut out the citrulline malate since you're running stims in the mix. I find CM works best when I'm cycled off stimulants. The beta-alanine and the mono should cover your endurance and recovery enhancement IMO.

    Thanks, it's a pretty common but effective mix.

    When I'm on one of my preworkout kicks, my mix looks like this:

    4.5g GPLC or 1.5g PLCAR or 1g LCLT
    3g creapure
    1.6-3.2g Beta-alanine
    2g taurine
    1-2 scoops of Xtend or 1 scoop MAP from PP
    *3g GMS (powdered, scooped right into mouth and washed down with mix)

    *only on arm, chest and back workouts

    I have just heard numerous things about the ineffectiveness of glutamine... i don't have any scientific evidence to back this up unfortunately. I know from my own experience is hasn't really helped me with recovery or anything. Anyone else?

    my preworkout:
    hemavol
    anadraulic pump
    x-force
    creatine mono

    --just thought i would throw it out there

    but imo add some vitamin c, very cheap and it has always increased pumps for me, also maybe some fish oils (increase blood flow)
    The difference between who you are and who you want to be is what you do.

    I would add glycerol and also agree that glutamine is not necessary pre-workout

    Actually, you do not need to supplement with glutamine because it is very prominent in your diet.. EX, you get more than enough from foods.

    Not yet. I wish. For now I'm using gluta lyn. Been using it 3 bottles now but hard to tell. I use modern bcaa as my sustamine source. I tried glutamine peptides before. Have not tried nano glutamine.

    You don/t wanna mix gluta with any arginine based NO boostr. They compete for recptors, thus reducing effectiveness of both. If I remember corrctly, gluta might actually bind to receptors even greater than arginine. Also, that's why Xyience stopped making their prwo, cuz of those 2 aminos interference.

    I've heard some good things about creatine nitrate but I haven't tried it myself yet. Yohimbine is great for fat loss and gives you a boost too. You can find it really cheap here: http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/s...es-2-5-mg.html

    be sure you don't get an adverse reaction to it b4 buying bulk amount..

    some people react badly to it. Super accelerated heartrate. When I had a supp with it in it my heart raced like I had just finished running a mile. and that was at rest. I did 2 sets of 11 pull ups and after finished the second my pulse was so high I nearly blacked out..
