Pre-Workouts doesn't work for me

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. For me it's brand for whatever reason.... Different ingredients or amounts.
    NO Xplode never felt anything from. White Flood is a world better. Now I actually do get more pumped along with an increase in focus on my lifts

    His pre workout in question was Enhanced which has a yohimbe extract as an ingredient.

    As someone who has experimented heavily with Enhanced as well as a powdered version of the extract solo, I can assure you that the effects are much more noticeable when taken two hours after food instead of one.
    Tried 3 hours after a solid meal

    Yes, no effects. I'm 23.

    I'll try another PW and im going to update here.

  3. If you used two scoops of Enhanced three hours after a meal and didn't notice any energy from it then you must be one of very few people with a high stimulant threshold than me lol.

    For most people, two scoops is too strong. Most people seem to be using 1.5.

  4. maybe you're like me... stimulants/a lot of preworkouts don't make me more focused/driven/awake per se, they just kind of jack me up some. it's not really like i drink them and then i'm "ready to go" or "kill the weights" as some people say. at best they just keep me from falling asleep and at worst they make me feel like im going to have an anxiety attack. i often don't take them on days when i'm working large muscle groups because they just make me anxious/make my heart beat fast, couple that with intense heavy lifting and it just makes things worse.

    i suppose it's probably a placebo effect, but i honestly think hemavol is the best pwo ive tried in years. it doesn't have stimulants, so i don't understand why i get so focused/feel so good on it in the gym, but i do. maybe it's also because i'm not as anxious and my heart isn't racing from all the stims offered in other pwo's, so i don't feel as compelled to hold back (there were times after taking 1,3 that i had to leave the gym because i was scared i was going to have a heart attack from being so "jacked up" on top of heavy, hard lifting... who knows what my blood pressure was during workouts while on the original 1-mr......but even then.... i wasn't really 'focused' or 'ready to go').

  5. or.... maybe i just have the wrong idea of what preworkouts are supposed to do, haha. i mean, if i were to take the maximum dosage of something, i would just sit around with my heart racing feeling like **** and not want to workout.

  6. Op instead of taking a boatload of stims try taking a look at your diet and training. If its a pump your chasing you should be able to get one without a pwo.. The addition of a pwo would just make it a more intense pump..if its energy your looking diet should provide your body with a good amount of the right nutrients to support clean energy. Again the addition of a pwo just enhances the amount of energy. I recently realized i dont even need a preworkout when i hired a personal trainer. He pushes me way harder than i thought i cud go and taking a pwo just ruined my workout because i couldn't finish with the insane pumps i was getting. Even if for some crazy reason your a non responder to stimulants you really don't need them so don't fixate on needing a pwo

    That's exactly like me.

    I always trained without PW and that was never a problem but after seeing many good reviews about PES Enhanced and many others PW I decided to try and see what happen.

    My diet is ok.

    I got a BPI 1MR sample. Later I update with the results.

  8. 1MR is pure ****. you should try GAT Nitraflex . and if it won't pump your ass up. try ECA . ( Ephedrine&Caffeine&Aspirin )

  9. I was going to purchase an ALCAR but If I'm that tolerant with caffeine im gonna be tolerant with alcar too?

    lol
    alcar is not a preWO either, and has nothing to do with caffeine

    I think you should just go into a store, look around and pick something out with a pretty package..
    if it doesn't work then pick out something else, repeat

    you need to start getting some education and real-life experience, and it ain't gonna come from this thread
    you have been given some decent advice here, and have yet to try what has been suggested

    Sometimes it's better to ask than wasting money.

    Thanks for the info, I'll try a bulk alcar

  12. I have been feeling more from stim-free than I have stims. Give Omega Ultima a try.

    I find that Ultima, Hemavol, and Ultra Reps give me more "umph" than the stim products.
