    Looking for a new pre-workout. Suggestions?


    I just finished up some Jack3d... not my kind of thing. Too jittery and I don't like the crash.

    I tried a friends super-pump Max, and that was one hell of a workout. It's kinda expensive though. Still considering it though.

    Want something that gives a relatively clean workout boost, a great pump, and little crash. Cheap if possible. Thanks.

    Suggestions? Going to the store in about an hour and a half.

    Lit-up is my favorite. No jittery feeling the 1,3 dime gives me and no crash. It also doesnt ruin my appetite. They have it at my local vitamin shoppe as well which is always great. Second favorite has to be san fierce just got a tub of that and it is amazing. In my opinion you cant go wrong with either one.

    MaximizeV2 is one of the strongest pre workouts I've used. It also has Agmatine Sulfate which is awesome for long lasting pumps.

    Ive also used lit up and found the stim effect to be very smooth and not to over powering.

    maximize v2, white flood, focus xt, and SP maxx are at the top of my list for stimmed pre's.


    for what its worth, with a tub of maximize v2, all you need is 1 scoop, so that 45 serving tub will last you 45 workouts

    Jack3d is whacked. Leave it alone. Go get Lit Up and try a quality product.

    I woudl take break from the DMAA for a bit now that youve finished up Jack3d. Give yourself a break. When your good for another run try Black Cats.

    I have yet to try SuperPump. The new and original, I guess im just not about Gaspari. I do like White Flood, especially version 2

    can also vouch for assault and lit up. Lit Up + RPM is pretty awesome stack!!

    Ive tried a lot of different pwo's over the years but not at all keen on anything with 1,3.

    Focus XT provides moderate stims with nootropics for enhanced focus as well. Cheap and many flavors to choose from. Add agmatine to it for a great stack.

    Maximize V2 is very strong stuff. One serving was all I needed and I am a pre workout stimulant addict.

    Hemavol was good for pumps but in my opinion too expensive for the price when MV2 does such a good job.

    I don't get free stuff for saying this, it is the strongest pre workout I have tried.

    If strength of the product is a driving factor then I agree, MV2 is a great choice for that.

    Controlled Labs White Flood is very solid.

    SNS Focus XT and SAN Fierce are pretty good too.

    Focus XT gave me a very very clean and smooth energy with no crash. Max V2 is pretty great stuff. Currently logging and liking N2KTS. And if you're not looking for a stir you could try out AgeForce's creatine patch for pretty cheap right now for some quick transdermal delivery, there is a 50% off code floating around right now. And their Nitric Oxide patches are free for a month right now, offer ends at midnight.
    Mesomorph was the most impressive stim based pre I've used in a while tho.

    OK, not that Applied Nutraceuticals needs any help from me to move product- but kudos to the brain trust behind Lit Up! The science behind the product is very strong- I don't what nerd you paid to write the abstract/ white paper- but something like 100+ medical citations. WTF!

    Looks like a great product.

    Thank you sir. The man who created Lit-Up (Dirk) is the one who wrote the write-up for the product. And yea a tremendous amount of research went into the formulation of Lit-Up
