    How much money do you spend per workout?


    As time has gone on I continue to add more products in and out of my workout rotation. I'm not sure the total cost of my workout but it is starting to get pricey.

    Preworkout: 1500 mg ALCAR, 500-1000mg L-carnitine tartrate, 1500-2500 mg Beta Alanine, 4-6 g Citrulline, 1 scoop Xtend, 500 mg tyrosine, 500 mg DLPA, 1000 mg choline bitatrate, b6, b12, 500mg niacin, green tea extract, 1 cap astravar, 1 cap kre-alkalyn, 200mg caffeine or other stimulant (like alpha t2), 1/2 scoop-1 scoop Ultima.
    Post lifting: 2 scoops xtend, 5 grams glutamine immediately after lifting.
    Post Workout: 1 scoop whey isolate.

    I cycle in fat burners/pre-workout supplements. At what I am doing in this cycle, my cost per workout averages about $3. In a given week, that is $15 per week and I'm in a budget phase right now.

    What is your daily cost to workout. Am I putting to much emphasis on pre-workout support? I train fasted in the AM and don't feel as strong nor have the endurance without supplements.

    Unless you have specific reasons you could easily drop the DLPA, B6, B12, niacin(get jarrow b-right if you want some b vitamins), astravar(if this is the preworkout enhancer thing), kre-alk for mono, l-glutamine and the xtend dose post workout. This could help you on costs some. I train fasted too and I cut it to a couple bulk powders, an intra, and a pre and I am good to go. If I don't have time for a meal I do protein post. Saves money.

    I like Xtend but if you are after the leucine you could get just as much out of a half serving of ModernBCAA for cheaper. Just some ideas to help.

    Thanks for the advice Rob. I take DLPA, niacin and b-vitamins for combating depression. I've off Lexapro for 8 months after being on it for 6 years. The tyrosine/DLPA combo is great for boosting dopamine naturally and gets me through the side effects of dropping the Lexapro. The b-vitamins are cofactors.

    Just ordered modern BCAA from nutraplanet from the clearance sale. $16.71. Great deal there!

    Ahhh, okay I got ya now. Well they are pretty inexpensive in bulk so not bad and you have good reason for using them.

    That is an awesome deal on modern.

    To answer your question right now I am cycled off of the carnitines. I use creatine mono, 2 caps uncut, ModernBCAA and sometimes Gatorade pre/during/post. My protein right now is XF arctic lemon.

    I guess still a little pricey. When I have money I also like agmatine and cm. If money was no issue I'd probably have too much lol.

    SNS caffeine tabs. 1-2 pre. That makes my workouts like .2 cents

    Doesn't include cycle costs either.

    i think 24hour just came in with the big money and raped them out of business. then the little gyms like fitness19 andplanet fitness undercut everything with their $10/month deal. golds was just doomed for awhile. it was either charge cheap to compete with cheap, or compete with 24hour's nationwide membership programs for $30/month

    lose-lose scenario

    Yah, I know lol. Me and my lifting partner knew something was up when they hardly ever had the heat on during the dead winter. It'd be cold as **** in there at 515 when we got there.

    Well, it was 34.99 if you pay by credit card, 29.99 if you pay by checking account, 24.99 if you sign up someone. Last year, they wanted to expand, so you had the opportunity to pay $100 then, and lower your rate to 19$ a month for life. Being that the gym is well stabilized, there is 3 golds gyms within 15 minutes of me, and my main one is a 2 minute drive from my house, I knew it was worth the 100$ Because i dont plan on stopping working out lol.

    24 hour for me was $350 for 2 years up front. Not bad and I can workout at most locations. I wish my dad kept his plan that he had when he worked at his previous job. A year of 24 hour was $75 and then $50 for each additional family member.

    Yup! Good deal IMO. The student discount at 24 was like $30 a month with a $90 startup fee. Wasn't trying to pay that

    I've used it in California and at 4 different gyms on Colorado. You just can't use it at super sport locations, so if that is the only one around you I guess it wont work. My college gym is brutal now that they are rebuilding it, free weights on a basketball court with no grip. Supposed to be nice when they are done next spring

    Seems like most gyms are averaging 25-35/month.

    My gym is free since I work there, I have a key so 24/7 365 as well haha. So 0.00$ there.

    Couple scoops of ON gold standard. About .60 cents a scoop so 1.20$
    Preworkout is black coffee, so pennies. multivitamin, creatine mono, and fish oil is basically pennies, let's say .20
    And occasionally I'll do a scoop of bcaas. So I'm calculating about 1.80$ plus a quarter for the bus each way. So $2.30 a workout.

    Yeah. They sell gym memberships though. Like to LA, 24 HR etc. Picked up a 2 year membership to 24 hr for like $300.

    More upfront but big savings

    costco has everything dude. if you havnt been inside, youre missing out, only half of the iass warehouse is actually groceries. the rest is random crap like backyard stuff, clothes, movie passes, etc. its a fun store to walk around in. they have a big electronic section too with 60-70inch tv's

    I've come full circle. It seemed i kept adding supps, reading about new stuff and just kept buying . Eventually I sat back and said WTF am I doing , half these things aren't even proven and just a waste. All I use now is ON WHEY PWO with bulk creatine mono, myofusion before bed, and the occasional pre workout. MAYBE during a cut some reduce xt.
