    Stacking Alphamine with a Preworkout?


    I just started taking alphamine, and was wondering if it'd be okay to take noxipro preworkout? Id take alphamine at 7 a.m. and around 12:30 or so I'd take noxipro preworkout and then around 4 take alphamine?

    If not, is it possible to stack alphamine with any other caffeinated preworkouts? Any advice be useful!

    personally, i wouldnt do that. I would just take Alphamine as your pre workout (assuming you arent training at night) and stack it with other pre workout ingredients like BioCor's agmatine and BCAAs (i like Modern BCAAs now available in caps and powder). you get the energy you want from the Alphamine and the pump from the agmatine. you can even dose the BCAAs pre workout/intra/post workout if you wanted.

    The reason i was wondering is because i recently took a scoop before one of my workouts recently and didnt feel any sort of energy whatsoever, it was harder to finish my workouts than it wouldve been when on a preworkout... Maybe i should take 2 scoops pre instead?

    You could try 1 scoop at 7am and another 2 pre-workout.

    Wouldn't recommend stacking other stimulants with Alphamine. For sure you could add a non stim pre. Or go: 1 scoop Alphamine in the morning and 2 scoops Alphamine pre-workout. Also did you take Alphamine on an empty stomach?

    Yes I took it on An empty stomach and about 30 minutres later I went to the gym. So for sure I could add a preworkout such as optimum nutrition's pre?

    I agree

    If you want to turn it into a preworkout with a pump, add 1000mgs Agmatine, or 3-4 caps of Yok3d

    You can add whatever pre workout (stimulants) you want, just don't take it the same time with Alphamine. IMO there are far better options for a preworkout then ON Pre. If you get a non-stimulant preworkout, then yes you can add that to Alphamine. I would try 2 scoops of Alphamine first though.

    Wait, so I can take noxipro as long as its not the same time as alphamine? im probably going to try 2 scoops alphamine pre first tho. What preworkouts other than ON Pre woukd you recommend then?

    Take a stim based preworkout 4-5 hours away from Alphamine.

    Jut to make sure you are understanding most are saying that if you want to take AlphaMine and a Pre, only do one dosing of AlphaMine then later do one Dosing of the pre. But here is the key don't do a second dose of Alpha after the pre. It sounds like that's what you are planning and that will fry your Adrenals so fast. Try doing the 1 scoop am with 2 scoops pre first. Add in Agmatine or Yok3d like natty said. I have done both and gotten the best workouts out of it. Good luck.

    the energy lasts a decent amount of time. with alphamine, it starts to hit me about 20-30 min after the initial dose but isnt in full effect til about 1 hour. and you arent using it for a pump or anything like you do with some pre workouts.

    I suggest take 1 scoop when you wake up and see how long it takes for the energy to peak. I like to start my workouts right before it peaks.

    Edit: Ive only used 1 scoop each dose but have dosed it twice a day. (1 in the morning, 1 for pre workout since i workout a bit later (4-5pm usually).

    I personally don't like the feeling of 2 scoops. My sweet spot is 1.5 scoops. I do feel great dosing this way though. But just because I didnt feel great off 2 doesn't mean you wont.

    I used to blast stims when I was but a young whipper snapper. I now feel much better at keeping it low and focusing more on pump products and low doses of nootropics. Plus it's lighter on my wallet bc my AlphaMine lasts so much longer, some days I only do one scoop Granted different strokes for different folks.

    Whoa thanks for this...would have never seen this otherwise. Cool feature.

    What's broscience is that overuse of stimulants can "burnout" the adrenal glands. Tolerance and withdrawal are very real effects of stims...but this is more due to peripheral receptor downregulation than anything else.

    Some people are fine with 2 scoops in the AM since it lasts long. 6 week product if you do it that way

    Alphamine+ SNS Citrulline Malate and SNS Agmatine would make a sick preworkout!!!

    Honestly man I love the combo of SNS citrulline malate and SNS agmatine. Although, sometimes the pump has been a little much to bare lol!
