    Best Pre-Workout (cheap and effective)


    I recently decided to invest in taking a pre workout along with caffiene pills. What are some of the reccomended pwo's?

    I am thinking about using one of these:
    • C4 Extreme
    • Totalis (Ian Mcarthy)
    • Animal Pump
    • Jack3d (new formula)



    Which of those is the best? I am mainly contemplating between the first two. Thanks!

    Btw, i am new here, so i would like to say "Hi" to everybody.

    This : http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/p....html?sel=4827

    Hands down my favorite, it's simple and effective plus you get 40 servings.

    as a rep for Finaflex, i dislike rating other products..
    however, i will say you have a list of very different items there, with very different effects.
    you need to determine if you want more of a "pump product" or more of an "energy product"..

    imo, Ignite2 accomplishes both.

    Never tried Ignite so I can't say anything about it, however, I have used 90% of the preworkouts on Nutra and PNI Prodigy beats all of them IMO.

    Looks solid however 200 mg of Citrulline is to low. And 20 servings is a little low IMO. I love the fact how I can't take more than one scoop because it's to much for me. With the old jacked and other concentrated preworkouts id have to take like 3 scoops to feel anything. This is not the case with prodigy

    it is already discounted bud, $28.99 for 30 TRUE servings.
    you will not need to take more than 1 scoop of this, and i recommend you start lower than that to assess.

    MAN Body Octane is pretty solid too. Can even be combined with a PWO you already have to fill in any ingredient gaps.

    ooops.

    safe things:
    food (learn the power of food!)
    multivite
    possibly creatine
    protein powder
    fish oil

    i would not advise any stims, but you'll do what you want to do.

    no. 18 to use as well.
    no rep should advise a preWO like this for you.
    like i said - you are gonna do what you are gonna do..
    just don't waste your time looking for someone to co-sign the idea for you.

Not to mention prodigy doesn't even have a full month's serving.

    Well being that your 15 1/2 I'm advising you against all supplementation except for Mom's cooking, protein and maybe a multivitamin/mineral.

    Agreed, this tactic drives me nuts

    im going with totalis on this one,

    LCLT, beta alanine, Citrulline malate, ALCAR, caffeine, Norvaline, and Tyrosine?

    thats a damn good pre workout, if i want more caffeine ill just brew an extra cup of coffee >=), either way its a good buy IMO

    ALSO, the site is providing 200grams of citrulline malate, not 200mg.
