    Preworkout Supplements


    So I have been taking PWO supplements for roughly the past 3 years but the majority of the time I have been rotating between just a few. I first started taking NO Shotgun (VPX). For about a year and a half I strictly stuck with this as my PWO. I greatly enjoyed the pumps and energy it gave me but every now and then it caused me to feel bloated mid-workout. I stuck with NO Shotgun because I enjoyed it's positive effects but more recently I have been rotating it with Meth (Invitro Labs) and C4 (Cellucor). NO Shotgun's taste has become too bitter for me to take, Meth at some points produces some great workouts but is lacking in stimulants, and although C4 does give me great energy and pump, I'm looking for something new. I am open to any suggestions. To help you all, I do prefer stimulants but I also want the PWO to produce a great pump+vascularity. I appreciate any suggestions. Thanks.

    How long have you been continuesly using stim laden pre-workouts?

    A nice middle grown, Jack3d Micro. 1 scoop has about 125mg caffeine along side some nice pump matrix of Agmatine Sulfate, Nitrates & Citulline.

    2 scoops if you're feeling adventurous ;-)

    Condense is solid but a little heavier on the stim side (200mg per) for some and beta-alanine

    You can give powermax a try. It would be more similar to C4. It gives really clean and smooth energy, great pumps and really good endurance. If you want to try a sample first shoot me a PM and ill get a couple out to you!

    I have been pretty much taking stims for the past 3 years but about every 3 months I take two weeks off from them. I'm not truly sure if that's enough time to allow my bodies dependency to level out but I strictly only use the amount directed on the side of the container. I have only used the directed amount (1 scoop) at all times. This has seemed to allow the dependency to level out fairly quickly once I take a week or two off.

    That's good you're taking breaks. As a stim junkie myself, it's hard to take 4 weeks off but once I did, I felt great. I would advise doing so.

    Take an 8 week on/4 week off approach. You can switch to a stim free pre-workout for these off times like Yok3d or Hemavol.

    See my first post for my suggestions as to stim pre-workouts.

    4 weeks off might be tough for me at first. Ill probably have to ease my way into it haha. But I'll do my best and ill for sure give those suggestions some research.

    Enhanced sounds like it is in line with what you are looking for. Agmatine + Nitrates for the pumps and a novel stim blend to give solid energy and pump. There are still several left on this deal, in which you also get some solid bulk products to add: http://www.nutraplanet.com/product/p...dle-stack.html

    I'm enjoying a mix of Formutech Volatile and AppNut Uncut right now. Volatile is a light stim, pump focuesd pwo, and Uncut is higher stim and better for focus. So the combo is really killer.

    I've heard good things about Enhanced and I have a sample of it to try out shortly.

    believe it or not, there are a few peeps that did not respond well to Hemavol. And it is usually because they didn't take it properly...once those "non reponders" let us know that they are struggling with it, then we were able to work with them to correct the problem...



    Rarchib/OP, give our new improved flavor Rasp/Lemonade Maximize Intense a try....a nice dose of pump ingredients and plenty of stimulants!!! In addition, it is flavored at the same flavor house as Hemavol and Compete so the taste is epic!!!

    Just don't get Hemavol tabs, no matter the price. It's a little harder to workout timing to get the max effects, IMO. Much easier/better going powdered route.

    I agree. The pills work well, but getting the timing down for a lot of people is no easy task.

    Powder tastes AMAZING, and kicks in much faster.

    I actually have some samples of Hemavol that I got a few weeks back, ill definitely try it out today. Maybe one scoop of Hemavol and 1/2 a scoop of C4?

    hemavol is non stim, id do a scoop of hemavol + your normal dose of c4 [ 2-3 scoops for me]

    nitrates + hemavol = amazing combo.

    This is absolute money.

    I've used 2-3g of the OG C4 (the best formula, IMHO) combined with 1-2 scoops of Hemavol and had great workouts. Throw in Compete (can't you get it for free? I think so ) and now we're talking a great tasting, high performing combination at a very economical cost.
