Pre Workout?

jsbow08jsbow08 Member Posts: 3 Member Member Posts: 3 Member
I’ve been going to the gym regularly now and have tried a few different samples of pre workout from different companies and didn’t like the way they made me feel during my workout (jittery). I would like to find a pre workout to use that will give me a little boost when I need it for my workout. Any suggestions?

    nothing. if you're eating enough and not totally depleted there isn't really any need for a pre-workout. Have some dark choc and/or pomegranate if you want some pump effects.

    It depends on what you mean by a “boost.” For most people, that means either a) caffeine, which you can get from any caffeinated beverage you enjoy, or b) quick energy, which typically means easily digestible carbs, like fruit.

    Perhaps explain why do you feel the need for a "boost"?

    I tried Xtend BCAAs but what i felt it just like waste of money.
    I go for simple carbs before gym like dates and bananas, especially dates
    Full of nutrients, cheap, tasty and simple to digest.
    Try simple Carbohydrates before training u will feel the difference :)

    So... I love the Ghost brand. Flavor and mixture is phenomenal. Unless you're going for 2+ hours though... Or early in the morning you might not need pre-workout. I love the stuff and highly recommend it
