    Best pre-workout ?


    I've tried many pre workouts, jacked, c4, neuro core, assault, shotgun, razor8, etc. But what do you guys think the best one is ? In terms of strength, pump, intensity, focus, vascularity, etc. All feedback is appreciated !

    I have been using FocusXT for about a week and its great. I like it because its versatile, I hav used it for a few other things besides working out. Yesterday I used it at work while preparing for a meeting I had to conduct last minute and I think it really helped. I found drinking it on empty stomach one hour before lifting works best for me. A few times I have had to force myself to leave the gym, I keep wanting to add an extra movement or 2 because I kinda get into a "zone".

    It does not do much, if anything for pumps, but I have also been using Purple Wraath intra workout, and its another great product. I start sipping it on the way to the gym and try and finish it about 10 minutes before my workout ends.

    While Focus XT is a very versatile supplement, it has no ingredients specifically geared toward increasing the pump, although adding in a scoop or two of our citmal and/or 1g Agmatine changes that.

    Thats one of the reasons I use the Purple Wraath. Between the citmal and the aminos, its adds the stuff I am missing. The two work very well together IMO.

    I think AX SuperSize or SAN Fierce would be a great option for you. They are my current favorites.

    I was sent quite a few samples of SAN Fierce(thanks!) and I was very impressed.

    Supersize will definitely aid in the energy and pump department.

    The P-Phenethylbenzamide and the Neuropeptide Alpha will cleanly stimulate the CNS while the creatine monohydrate and the Leucine Nitrate will add big time pumps.

    Among the numerous other benefits Supersize will provide these will satisfy your main points.

    Other pre workouts that i enjoy are craze and vpx friction.

    I am really digging the new Maximize (w/o 1,3). Clean, great ingredients, plus I add in 1.6g of Beta Alinine and it's on.

    Everyone is going to have their own preference, but for me personally nothing comes close to ASSAULT!

    If you want energy anything with a hefty dose of stimulants, or if it contains Geranium, will work. A pump you can achieve through manipulating your training, but can enhance it with using something that includes NO boosters in its ingredient profile.

    There are many products out there that do both - the newest version of Assault gives me all this (stacked with NO Infuse).

    When it comes to strength, pump, intensity, focus, vascularity my favorite pre-workout has to be NOX-CG3 XTREME. I got it because it had a lot of Citrulline Malate, Creatine Monohydrate and Beta Alanine and it tasted great (Fruit Punch flavor).

    After 2 weeks of using it, my strength was the highest it's ever been, the pump is really intense on arm days, the focus is perfect and it doesn't give me insomnia or anxiety.

    I also like Assault, but it was too sweet (blue raspberry flavor) and had too much caffeine (I was awake until 2:00 am and my heart rate was pretty high). SuperPump Max was also decent.

    I didn't notice anything special about N.O. Xplode except for more frequent trips to the bathroom.

    I was reading up on some of Poliquin's writings and he suggested 2g vitamin C to offset the stimulant effects of caffeine. This would prove especially beneficial for those who workout at night.

    I have tried a few PWOs that have been decent. As a powerlifter, however, the 'pump' is not significant to me all. A true ECA stack with 100% grape juice works well and is cheap. Universal Shock Therapy is good stuff without a crazy amount of caffeine. Maniac by AI Sports is awesome - great flavors and very effective without a crash. My absolute favorite for focus and intensity is Animal Rage - the flavor is less than desirable but a scoop and a half does wonders to my training.

    I would be interested to read up more on it. I read somewhere that more than 1g vitamin c as ascorbic acid could have pro-oxidative effects. I offset the stimulant effects of caffeine by going with pre-workouts with little to no caffeine , but it would seem that I'm in the minority.

    Another vote for C4, clean energy, it allows me to squeeze a couple more reps than craze or jack3d in my latter sets. no crash after you feel great. It usually clears my bowls about 5 minutes after taking it but at least its before your workout. Tastes amazing. Mixes well. I usually need 1.5 scoops.
