I don’t need one, I just fucking get on with it. All this pre-bullshit is hogwash and you’ve been duped like a mongoloid simpleton. 

WADA and USADA strongly disagree with your misguided sentiment 

Show me the evidence that supports over the counter products having a positive effect. Aside from creatine, which isn’t a pre-workout, there aren’t any. All others have nothing more than vague claims by manufacturers. 
 

Same as all the other bullshit supplements like fish oil etc. 
 

Protein and creatine are the only proven supplements that positively impact workouts and recovery.

Mix my own. 

Half a caffeine tablet, beta alanine, L-Citrulline DL-Malate (2:1), creatine monohydrate, unflavored BCAA powder, a little fruit juice to cut the bitterness. $75 of powders lasts me over 8 months or more. I can adjust the amounts of each to my own daily needs. I don't buy premixed pre-workouts anymore.

YOU SHOULD HAVE JUST STARTED WITH  " I AM A LOSER FAGGOT AND SUCK A PLETHORA OF HAM LANCES"

I’m a big fan of the term Ham Lances. This will now be added to my daily vocabulary.

A sweet potato and some chicken. Maybe a coffee

On the weekends I might take some C4 because it’s early in the day.

I really like this stuff...buy cases of it @ Costco. Not too much caffeine and not a whole bunch of guarana or ginseng that can make me nauseous first thing in the AM on an empty stomach

Nowadays I just drink a sugar - free Monster. I used to love White Flood because it gave me insane energy, an equally insane pump and I didn't retain water because it was creatine - free. I don't think it's on the market anymore and if it is I think it has creatine in it. It is next to impossible now to find a preworkout that isn't loaded with Yohimbe and/ or Creatine. I get serotonin syndrome whenever I've taken Yohimbe and I try to avoid water retention as much as possible.

Protein and creatine are the only proven supplements that positively impact workouts and recovery. 

There are numerous studies that show  multiple positive benefits of Omega - 3 fatty acids. And you're half wrong about creatine. There is literature showing numerous, positive benefits of creatine when taken pre-workout. And to say protein and creatine are the only proven supplements that positively impact workouts and recovery is a load of crap. CNS recovery is just as important, if not more important, than muscular recovery post-workout. But I'm sure you already knew that and a lot more.

Preworkouts definitely help. If you're not feeling like working out, take your preworkout. Now you're pumped and your skin is crawling either way. May as well hit the gym.

Look at the banned substance list they publish every year

 

Nicotine, caffeine, pseudoephedrine for starters

In my early 20s (more than 20 years ago) the original Ultimate Orange powered me through some impressive lifts. I still use Pre though...for the caffeine. I workout around 8pm and if I didn't I'd crash from all the coffee I drink all day and be sleeping at the gym.

Almost every stimulant based preworkout has caffeine or a form of caffeine. To argue there is no benefit from caffeine is ignorant.

The real question is, other than caffeine and creatine, is their any pre-workout supplements that “work”? Fish oil has positive benefits, sure, but you’re not gonna get hyped and blast through a workout because of it.

Seems like anything that actually works ends up getting banned.
