  1. Best Pre-game Baseball Supplement


    Any suggestions as to what supplement to use (for focus and power)?

    Right now, I'm thinking Craze.

    Thanks!

  3. Stims prior to athletic events isn't advised IMO.


    Id suggest a non-stimulant route like HemaVol to make sure you don't crash, and have all the endurance/power necessary to perform.

  4. Half of our baseball team takes craze before games. It gives great focus and adrenaline rush for the games. We even got our coach on it. Its awesome! If you don't want stims like Vaughn said hemoval is a great option.

  5. If stims work for ya, no sense not using them. When I played sports I would get too amped up when I used stims and my performance suffered

  6. I'm an OG. 45.

    I love Craze pre-workout. I have a feeling that it will be perfect for games. But I was just curious as to whether or not there might be something better out there.

  7. Craze is definitely a popular product. Check out Maximize Intense when you can. Very different "feel" to it, but every review so far has been 10/10 on energy, pumps, and endurance

  8. Honestly if stims work for you why ask us? Beta alanine, COP, citruline malate, LCLT would be my suggestions though I wouldn't use stims.

  9. If you're looking for something to give you the edge for focus and power in games, I might suggest looking into SNS Focus XT.

    With 10g of nootropic combined in an awesome-tasting formula, it delivers an incredible focus, a clean, smooth rush of energy that's very moderate (200mg - not of concern in an athletic context, IMHO) in its dosage of stimulants. Even before working for SNS, I ran a log for it on Bodybuilding.com and found it to be one of the most incredible (and incredibly versatile) preworkout/energy/focus blends available on the market and was very pleased with how it affected me.

    In regards to the power aspect which you seek, this is hard to gain over the short term and it may be advised that your training regiment and long-term supplementation regimen should mesh with this goal to give you the most power in a game. As far as compounds that may show acute ergogenic benefits as per clinical studies, however, creatine monohydrate (SNS makes 1200g - 240+ serving - tubs that sell for about ~$17) and creatinol-o-phosphate (SNS makes 90 cap bottles that sell for ~$18) have both been proven to have almost immediate effects as ergogenic aids.

    That + nitrates and Cordygen

    Good suggestion here. I would even add in some electrolytes and possibly carbs depending how intense the game/ training is.

  12. If Craze works for you pre, it'd probably be great baseball. I think focus increase for a baseball player could be immensely useful. I'm still waiting to get a chance to use Focus XT pre-game...been sidelined with an injury and may honestly never play again.

    I'd probably take Focus XT + SAN CM2 (Creatine Nitrate) + something like HemaVol

  13. I wouldn't go with a stim.

    I would go with something like AX Ultra Reps or Omega Ultima.

    Theobromine is a stimulant, Hemavol contains no stims whatsoever.

    What was your purpose for automatically putting Ultra Reps vs Hemavol?
    Did I mention Hemavol once in my post? No I didn't.

    ^Not true. There is log in progress on here as we speak where the user didn't give it a "10/10" for those stats on any one day of use. That is while even stacked with Hemavol.

    Let's try to be a little fair here for the consumers.

    I mentioned Hemavol because it is a good non-stim option. You also mentioned a product called "Ultra Reps" as being non-stim, which is not true.

  18. If you don't get tested, E-Pharm AMP will make the baseball look like a beachball coming in.

  19. College or High School athletics?
    Also, are we talking focus and power in the weightroom? I would hope that is the case as that would/should translate to better performance on the field.
    For focus and power I would lean towards Ultra Reps, you are getting Creapure, Taurine, L-Carnosine, and ATP.
    With primed creatine stores you are definitely going to see increased power.

    Be sure to keep hydrated if you are using creatine, especially during sports.

    And while we're at it, let's do our homework here, folks. The amount of theobromine contained in Ultra Reps is very low dosed. At this dose, the intent and effect was NOT stimulatory. It does, however, enable the user to breathe deeper and easier, which would be a very good affect for anyone who is looking to increase their performance in athletics of any sort. In addition to this, the main focus of Ultra Reps is to provide the endurance and duration to continue without the painful burn. Just like Carnobolic before it, Ultra Reps greatly fights muscle fatigue, enabling a runner to run longer, a football player to go harder, etc..

    Where I get confused with a Hemavol recommendation, as I would with any other supposed "extremely potent pump product" is the case where an athlete actually does get really "pumped" with use. I know that any time I have used a successful product of this sort, my muscles were engorged to the point where I was having difficulty getting a full range of motion. I'm not exactly sure why that would be so helpful in sports. If one is playing baseball, wouldn't a bicep pump inhibit the players ability to fully swing the bat, throwing their natural "aim" off a bit? Would a football player not be able to run quite as well? I see this product more in line for those who are at a gym doing a workout, not for someone in a sports setting. This is the sort of thing that you want in the gym in order to lift more, recover better, and grow. It's NOT what you want if you are looking to increase endurance and performance "on the field".

    Happy medium: Use Hemavol or something similar in your training. For the purpose of this thread, use Ultra Reps pre-game.

  21. Jeez kids today. Back when I played football we jammed down a ton of Ibuprofen before the game ;-) If you are running a risk of getting tested I'd just avoid the stims. Our trainers wouldn't allow us to take anything before game in the locker either, heck we weren't even allowed to eat before a football game. We'd be given a protein shake but that was it.

  22. Let's remember that baseball is NOT like football, basketball, others in that you don't play the game with an elevated heart rate for the most part. Something stimulant based can be so useful to keep on your toes for the few events in which a player needs to be focused in the course of a few hour game. I would still use something along the lines of a pump product, though. "Pump" aids like creatine nitrate, citrulline, etc do aid in pumps but they are also ergogenic aids -- endurance and performance are increased as well and this could be especially useful to repetitive motion athletes like pitchers or someone that has to squat the entire game like a catcher.

    I'd still hate to take a stim based product and be coming down off of it during the 7th to 9th inning. But that's just me im stim sensitive it would obviously have to be user dependent.

    And that's precisely why it wouldn't be advisable to take a stim-based pre-w/o before a baseball game, particularly one with either a buttload of caffeine or 1,3 in it. Now if there were something else that would last the whole 9 innings, or atleast a pre- that would get your mind in gear for hours on end and have a good, solid wave of energy without any sort of crash at all... and perhaps even a little of that "pump" that people seem to be so fond of... THEN you might have something here...

  25. Baseball. Seriously. Played for years and didn't need ****. Maybe if pitch, fish oil. Yeah, a stilled out first baseman or outfielder makes a lot of sense. I gues you could draw pictures in the sand with cleats with that extra energy and nothing to do. You either got it or you ain't got it.

    Haha I'm with you, bro. I did fine without anything all those years. Heck, I don't think we even touched soda or energy drinks before games. The closest thing we got to was Gatorade during the games.

    I'd love to see some kids playing baseball that were all stimmed out; especially if it was little league. It would make the "hey batter batter!" chants even better. I say you just take a handful of 1,3 dmaa pills and enjoy the first 5 innings and crash hard for the last 2-4 (depending on how many you play).

  27. well it isnt out yet but a new product from iforce is designed SPECIFICALLY for performance, focus and hydration, the best intra is yet to come. expect it soon!

  28. MLB baseball players have been using GREENIES (AMPHETAMINES) before games since the 80's up until the recent drug testing.

    Certain stims that won't make you jittery but will give you a clean focus and quick bursts of power/energy are fantastic for baseball players before a game. Is it moral/ethical to use crutch before a game? That's another issue.

    But if he's asking for a pre game supplement to help him play better and increase eye hand coordination, then certain stims like 1,3 dmaa and a bit of caffeine will definitely improve his game.

    I used to pop 2 AMP before big games in college before anyone even knew what 1,3 dmaa was and I'd have a hell of a game.

    I don't know that I'd take the most stim loaded supp out there but especially something with a modest dose of caffeine (ala Focus XT, Fierce, etc.). Hell, even NeuroSurge would be good!

    I would definitely recommend to anyone that they spend some time practicing with that supp protocol so they know what they're getting into. Supps are user dependent and baseball is a game of precision -- don't want things being off even just a little bit for the first time while you're in a game.

    mind = blown.


    You say one thing...then do the exact opposite in the same post.


    The reviews on Max Intense with or without HemaVol speak for themselves. Much easier to help promote product when people actually USE your product. Rough guys...I feel for you.

    Bolded points:

    1. The fact of the matter is that it DOES include stimulants, which your rep just claimed it didn't. Regardless of the amount used, "Ultra Reps" contains stimulants...no matter how you slice it. Now, you say "there is very little" but lets think a ways back...YOU ALSO TOLD US SLIM XTREME WASN'T SPIKED WITH ILLEGAL DESIGNER STIMULANTS. Yea...you guys are someone I'm willing to trust with a prop blend LOL.

    2. HemaVol contains Citrulline Malate a proven endurance aid. HemaVol contains proven N.O. precursors which can help flood a muscle with oxygen/nutrients thus enlonging exercise potential. Ultra reps contains Creatine monohydrate...no endurance boost...taurine...no endurance boost...and beta alanine...again NO endurance boost when simply taken pre-wo...IN A PROP BLEND.

    HemaVol and Ultra Reps aren't even in the same league, and the fact that you attempt to put them in one just makes me laugh.
