Pre Workout Question

I’ve been working out for about 6 months now using ENGN Shred from Evlution Nutrition 5-7 times a week. I am a light coffee drinker but I’ll go to Starbucks maybe once or twice a week.

I am currently on day 10 of no pre workout and have gone to Starbucks once in those 10 days.

Should I continue my break from preworkout? How long should I go without it? Do you take breaks from your pre workout?

    Why did you decide to have a break in the first place?

    I have never taken a pre-workout, other than black coffee half an hour before lifting

    I quit PWO altogether. Didn't see the point.

    How do you feel without it? How are your workouts? Nothing wrong with trying something different to switch it up or take caffeine dose breaks.

    I also don't use formal pre-workout, just espresso and candy.

    I stopped using it completely because I was starting to get heart palpitations randomly. I've been OK without it.

    Why did you start, why did you stop?
    If it's not giving you any benefit then don't waste your money.

    Personally never used a pre-workout, just don't see the need.
