    Is this for repairing muscles?

    No.

    Mr Hyde. Best ever. If you don't make gains or get pumped off that. You might as well quit. I just came off that stuff and its ridiculous!! Loved it

    @Imaharidge I'm talking about the original, first formula, DMAA containing, now banned Jack3d. When I heard it was changing, I bought 10 tubs. Lol

    Jim Stoppani's JYM - no jitters, taste isn't bad

    I want to try C4, any flavor recommendations? I've heard the mojito is a no go...
  • sixxpointsixxpoint Member Posts: 3,533 Member Member Posts: 3,533 Member
    C4 gets so much love on MFP. I wonder why... it's mediocre at best.

    Go with Controlled Labs White Flood Reborn, White Pump, or White Rapids

    Body By Vi shakes are awesome for before or after work outs!

    I need you to look at this right away!!! (link removed)

    I mix my chocolate pure protein powder with prebiotics, probiotics and chia seed with some cold coffee I save in the fridge from the day before and drink that before my 5:30 a.m. workout. I need a little caffeine before my workout due to my inflammation issues (auto-immune disorder). The caffeine helps my muscles warm up faster during my cardio so I am nice and loose for my weight training after my cardio. Yes, I HAVE to do my cardio first before weight training, otherwise it doesn't get done. Plus, I discovered after much trial and error that this is what my body requires to succeed with the weight training.

    Fruit Punch and Berry Bomb are the best IMHO. The Mojito is nasty. :s

    Of the two I have tried (On Pre and My Protein Pre), neither of them brought me up and made me motivated/energetic/focused/pumped etc, but both seemed to make me tired, jittery and slightly depressed a few hours later. The posotives were pretty non existent and the negatives were noticable and rubbish. I don't drink coffee so don't have a tolerance to caffeine either. I just don't like how I react to them.

    I see C4 is popular. Looked up the ingredients. It has vitamins and caffine with low doses of amino acids. I just make my own with those separate items and ones i like for a lot less...

    I took 2 scoops of C4 today... couldn't stop laughing for some reason. Pump was real good though, probably going to stick to 1 scoop though.. I am not made of money ;)

    On epiq power right now. I like it pretty good. Taste isn't the best but have gotten good results out of it. I usually get immune to them but haven't yet on this one. I wanna try jym next.

    It annoys me that Pre Workouts seem to agree with people lol. I wish I was having fun in the gym! The two that I brought I used for about three days and are still nearly full in my cupboard (about £40 worth). I hate the anxious comedown. I always feel great after a workout (without them), on these things I feel really down and tired. I'm fine with things like RedBull, Monster etc.

    The previous time I used 1.5 scoops.. didn't really do much. 1 scoops seemed to do a lot... it's pretty odd.

    You can always give me those PWO's ;)

    I ordered some jym, I'd heard it wasn't quite so "in your face" as some other pre's. Looking forward to trying it. Hoping for more focus and just a bit of an energy boost rather than feeling hulk like :p
  • XavierNusumXavierNusum Member Posts: 720 Member Member Posts: 720 Member
    BPI sports 1.m.r is my favorite right now. No jitters, just focus.
  • chismmeganchismmegan Member Posts: 45 Member Member Posts: 45 Member
    I'm using C4 - Watermelon. Tastes alright..until I worked out too hard awhile back and threw it up. Can't stand the taste now. I have to use just a little water and take it like a shot.
  • biziebunbiziebun Member Posts: 24 Member Member Posts: 24 Member
    I currently use the fruit punch in C4 and I like the taste. I'm happy with the energy it provides, but then again, I'm wondering if it's my mind placing tricks on me. I'm thinking of trying to go without it for a workout, but then again, will my mind play tricks on me...I guess I'm stuck taking it.
