Kicking Pre work outs....
- 04-23-2012, 10:20 AM
So I've almost always used some sort of a stim pre before I lift.... I want to try an avoid stims & supplemental drinks as well.
I'm sure my work outs will be affected but are there any tips yous guys can pass along?
One I'm already aware of is sleep will def be needed & I may continue to use hemavol.

L-Tyrosine, L-Carnitine/ALCAR, and MCT Oil are my best friends since i gave up stims pre-workout.
some may call tyrosine a stim, but i dont. its a precursor to all the catecholamines.

1 thing that helps me to push-it-to-the-limit in the gym more than any preworkout ever will is good music

ALCAR is non stim and is amongst the most underrated/underappreciated supplements out there.

Hemavol is a good choice when going stim free. Helps with endurance and pumps. In about due for a stim detox too... Keep us posted Aaron!

Coffee IS a stim lol and a good one I'd say.
Anyways, give an extra dose of leucine a shot, pre and intra wo

Hany's supplement company EVP preworkout is alright and also stim free as long as you don't mind the price

Thx... I passed some reps along to all you folks.

Adding coffee would be a step in the wrong direction.
Why not just use a comprehensive stim-free formula like Ultima? When coupled with ALCAR, you are meeting your daily needs for a bunch of ingredients, you're getting stim-free energy, and long-term choline/alcar use will increase memory formation.
When stim-free focus xt comes out, it will be right up your alley.
The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES

I tried kicking out pre-workout supplements completely. That didn't last very long.
There are plenty of very-low to no stim options.
AX Ultra Reps
SNS Stim-Free Focus (coming soon)
^All these would be good options for you. There are others I missed for sure.

I've already been using Glyco-Maize(got it from a buddy for free) with my preworkout meal with my 2 ABE and about a half hour before training I take me pre, but lately I haven't been feeling that kick I'm used too.
Whatever you choose man let me know! I'm down for a month or two off stims.

5 mins of HIIT cardio or / and 2 giant sets of deadlifts / military presses / chins / dips of 15 reps each exercise will get your heart rate up, CNS warmed up to ensure proper intensity to be used in your workout, cheap and effective!
