With our busy lives these days we all need a little extra energy and motivation at the gym to get the maximum pumpage going. You can’t get a good pump if you’re all tired and worn down from a day of slave labor at your office job. You’re gonna be too distracted staring at the ass of the girl(s) in yoga pants. The girl in yoga pants who does kettle bell exercise that requires her to bend over constantly. When you wear yoga pants and bend over, they become see through yoga pants, if you know what I mean (I know you do). Anyway, back to the topic! This is why you need to take a pre workout supplement, it gives you a little extra energy and focus to get a good workout in or you’ll get distracted like I just did. Another nice thing is the nice caffeine buzz you get, unless you’re a pussy and you complain about jitters and shakes and all that pussy shit. You could buy a premade preworkout but it’ll cost you about $76 for a about 100 grams of it. This ends up costing you about $14 per thimble sized serving and you don’t know what other crap they put in it. So unless you like to make it rain with 100 dollar bills, just make your own. I’ll show you how, you’ll end up paying about $70 up front but it will last you at least 6 months if not more. These ingredients don’t taste so great, so mix it together with some gatorade or any other drink of your choice and take 30 mins before you arrive at the gym. As usual, the best prices are on amazon. I personally use these exact ingredients so I have selected the best quality products that are also the best value.Ingredients:Creatine Monohydrate: Creatine has all kinds of health benefits and is one of the few supplements that are actually proven to have quite a few real benefits. I’m not about to write an essay here so just google it. Creatine is nice and cheap. Optimum Nutrition makes a good micronized one. You need about 5 grams a day, which is usually one scoop.Citrulline Malate: has been clinically shown to support increased performance and lean mass gains, support increased blood flow and amino acid delivery to skeletal muscle, leading to increased protein synthesis (muscle growth), enhance ATP production and support cell volumization, and is a potent precursor to arginine. Good stuff. You can take about 4-6 grams a day.Beta Alanine:Beta-alanine is used for improving athletic performance and exercise capacity, building lean muscle mass, and improving physical functioning in the elderly. This is the stuff that give you the tingles, so if you don’t like that feeling only use 1 or 2 scoops.Acetyl – L – Carnitine:Alcar is formulated to support help your body perform better while dieting. Alcar may support overall recovery times after strenuous training and function as a neuro-supporting agent. Alcar is an ester of carnitine that modulates cellular concentrations of free coenzyme A and Acetyl-Coenzyme A, two compounds integrally involved in numerous cellular functions. This includes the transfer of fatty acids across mitochondrial membranes to support energy production. You need about 2 – 3 scoops a day.Caffeine:The best part of the preworkout! We all know what this does, unless you’re a pussy. Don’t take too much though, you don’t wanna have a heart attack either! Read the label and dose it according to your tolerance. Personally, I like about 300grams a day.Gatorade:This is just for flavoring.
