This is always a fun idea.

Curious how u respond to Theanine and what ur reasoning is for adding it. I use it once in a blue moon as a sleep aide personally.

I personally like more for pumps in my preworkouts. I like your nootopics, definitely an area I don't often cover with mine. I like 200-300 caffieine, 6g l citrulline, a nice amount of vegetable glycerin (I just squueze in)lol, 2g l tyrosine, 25g karbolyn, 2.5g taurine, 1 g agmatine, and sometimes 25mg ephedrine.

Then I do an intra with 50-100g karbolyn, 15-20g EAAs, 25 -50g whey hydrolosate (depending on diet), 10g l glutamine, 5g creatine, 2.5 betaine, 2.5g taurine, 6g beta alanine(on and off), more vegetable glycerin, 50-100mg caffiene (depending on dose of stims preworkout), some Crystal light for flavoring.

Some things I've been using that might try to incorporate more: peak02 xtend perform is an awesome product with excellent flavoring.

I really want to try out teacrine.

Something I feel helps with strength is Creatinol O Phosphate. I think it really helps strength endurance. Also, do you already take creatine and betaine anhydrous?

Bro thanks for nootropics compliment. I'm trying to make it cost effective as I have some friends who want to buy from me (buying in bulk cause God knows brand name supplements are way over priced).

I do plan to put 4g of citruline Malate. Probably gonna put glutamine in my protein. I'll probably add taurine in for myself (not in the stack I'm selling to my noob buddies lol)

Gonna use creatine and beta alanine in my post workout with my BCAA

Got my own flavoring system ����

It's supposed to cancel out negative effects of caffeine. I may use less of it actually. It's supposed it's supposed to be 2:1 caffeine ration, from what I remember. But I feel this is too much

A good pre workout. Focus and intensity
Yes sirr. 4g is added. May bump 2 6g later
I always like 6.

For intensity, maybe look to increase the caffeine a little bit? Otherwise, for focus, it looks like it should do the trick as is currently. Since you already are going to take the BA and creatine post workout, the above looks decent to me. Personally, I prefer BA pre or intra with the feeling I get from it.

Yeah I may order more cit Malate in bulk to get a cheaper cost and use 6g. You get a feeling other than tingly skin? Lol

I may try 275 or 300mg of caffeine

No I am using citruline Malate
very different dosing needed for citrulline malate than l-citrulline.

citrulline malate (1:1...which is what it is unless noted otherwise) is 56.6% citrulline if bonded, and only 50% if non-bonded (unfortunately often the case).

Citrulline malate 2:1 is 72.32% citrulline if bonded, and only 66% if non-bonded.


This means in order to reach the 4-6g L-Citrulline goal, you need to take significantly more than 4-6g

SNS has high quality bulk supplements if you wanted to go a trusted brand route.

It's the tingly skin, which usually goes away after saturation, but I'm terribly inconsistent sometimes so it seems I always get the tingles.

I am using citruline Malate 2:1

Do you recommend l citruline over cit mal 2:1?

I thought it was pretty well known that cit Malate was superior to l cit

I disagree STRONGLY that L-Citrulline is inferior to Citrulline Malate.

Think about it, Citrulline Malate is Citrulline + Malic acid. That means the beneficial aspects of it are due to the L-Citrulline because Malic acid is not exactly a proven ergogen.

This means a more pure Citrulline source > than a less pure Citrulline source.


IF your 2:1 Cit Malate is bonded, you have 72.32% L-Citrulline (however I would bet my left nut it's actually 66%) which means if you want 4g of Citrulline you need to take ~6g. And if you want the suggested 6g L-Citrulline you'd need 8.5g


L-Citrulline > Cit Malate 24/7

I only see glycerol momostearate from bulk. How much of this is a decent amount?
most people only take a few grams. I am a fan of the ingredient, but it is not necessary whatsoever.

Several bulk sellers sell hydromax. I picked some up for pretty cheap.

Currently using Pink Lemonade Modern BCAA. Tastes like crystal light lol. Great in my book.

From what I read citruline helps with pumps and cit Malate helps with strength

Well at this point my pre workout has a decent focus and energy stack. I have ag sulfate for pumps. Maybe I should lower ag sulfate and add some glycerol to get the best pump?

Is hydromax just glycerol?
GMS (Glycerol Mono Sterate), HydroMax and Vegetable Glycerine are all in essence the same. VG is a sweet syrup, cheap and helps if you have a lot of bulk powders in your mix. HydroMax is the higher absorbable version of GMS, powder form. GMS is usually like little tiny granules​.

from what I know, the bioavailability does not change between HydroMax and GMS, simply a higher % of active glycerol on a g/g basis

I figured since it was less needed for the same effect it was better absorbed by the body. But what your saying sounds right. 65% if iirc no?
