    We keep it simple here with 1000mg agmatine 509mg niacin non flush and 1500mg of Arginine if we do it as a homemade pre workout

  3. Caffeine 200mg + Nitrates 300-600mg = Cheap & effective.

    No, I read somewhere that it's a good supplement to take for heart health, and it stacks well with agmatine in our experience. I read the article that says Arginine isn't for NO production

  6. Levyii = We and Our? Is there 2 of you lol?

  7. Citrulline/Citrulline Malate + Amentomax+ Caffeine, simple enough.

  8. SNS sells everything needed for a preworkout blend. Creatime, agmatine, caffeine, citrulline, leucine, and if you don't want to start from scratch just pick up focus xt and add some goodies.

  9. Citrulline Malate: 6 grams
    Beta Alanine: 2-3 grams
    Taurine: 2 grams
    Caffeine: 250mg
    Yohimbine: 20mg

    Occasionally I'll play around with potassium or betaine nitrate. This stack gives me that edge in clinical doses. Better than any preworkout I've ever tried.

    Speaking of potassium nitrate, mine comes in the mail today. But I like citruline malate, beta alanine, caffeine, and yohimbine also.

    Edit: after re reading I hope you're trolling...

    Oops double posted instead of editing

  26. Posted this in another pre-wo thread, but figure I'll also put it here....

    Sitting at work, spent about 5 hours putting this all together. Slow day. I've had so many tubs of various pre-wo at home, it's been over a year since I've had to buy anything new. Came online to research, and started looking at pre-jym and conqu3r, but each had downsides...


    - With both, of course, the price. $2.04 for pre-jym, w/ shipping. $2.50 for conqu3r, w/shipping.
    - I also don't really need 300mg of caffeine. I like to use the minimum amount of caffeine necessary to get me going, and I find that 200mg is enough.
    - I especially don't like the inclusion of AMP in conqu3r at all. Deal-breaker, for me.
    - I also don't like the creatine mono in conqu3r, as I get side effects from mono, but that's just me personally.
    - With both, unnecessary artificial colors and sweeteners. I know, I've been consuming these things in my prewo's for years, but for a long time I've wanted to try to cut them down as much as possible.


    Anyway, that's all personal preference, but seeing those open labels with all the ingredients nicely laid out inspired me, so I started building my own and here's what I came up with, along with serving size, price per serving, and brand. Everything is powder, unless otherwise noted. All ingredients are from amazon, as I'm a prime member so shipping is not a factor. I also used the subscribe and save option on several ingredients and saved an extra 15%.


    Pre-workout
    Caffeine (from coffee extract) - 200mg ($0.028) [BulkSupplements]
    Citrulline Malate 2:1 - 6g ($0.432) [BulkSupplements]
    Agmatine (capsule) - 1g ($0.42) [USPLabs]
    Carnosyn Beta Alanine - 2g ($0.064) [NOW]
    Betaine TMG (capsule) - 1.5g ($0.14) [Source Naturals]
    Taurine - 1g ($0.048) [NOW]
    NAC (capsule) - 600mg ($0.06) [NOW]
    Tyrosine - 1.5g ($0.195) [BulkSupplements]
    Bioperine (capsule) - 10mg ($0.04) [Source Naturals]
    TOTAL COST = $1.427/serving


    Post-workout
    Creacore Creatine HCL - 1.75g ($0.29) [MuscleTech] (I used 3.5g for initial saturation, then backed off)
    Carnosyn Beta Alanine - 2g ($0.064) [NOW]
    Betaine TMG (capsule) - 1.5g ($0.14) [Source Naturals]
    Bioperine (capsule) - 10mg ($0.04) [Source Naturals]
    TOTAL COST = $0.534


    COMBINED TOTAL = $1.961



    On off days I would use the post-workout mix in the morning with a second dose of beta alanine and betaine sometime later.


    So yea, not too much cheaper than pre-jym, but there are some advantages. I was able to add in some agmatine, cut the caffeine down, and double my doses of betaine and beta alanine. Cost could be cut even more if using creatine mono rather than hcl, but I'm one of those people who gets side effects from mono and hcl has treated me well. I'm still getting artificial colors/flavors from the creacore, but the cost is so much less than con-cret unflavored that I couldn't pass it up. I left out alpha gpc and huperzine, because I don't really care about those, but I may add alcar eventually. I also left out the bcaa, because I already have a giant tub at home that will last me for a long time still.


    Any input is welcome. Additions, subtractions, dosages, etc.

    This is the idea right here, cost effective method doing it your own way. I have a similar set up; definitely add that ALCAR.

    would you add the alcar in place of anything, or just add it with everything else? pre? post? both?

    Keep everything the same. Try 1-2g of ALCAR pre and 2g LCLT post. Or could look into the other forms, but I'm not well versed in the differences. Maybe someone can explain
