    Default Pre-workout: What do you take/ eat preworkout?

    I am not a fan of traditional pre-workout drinks. Too many stimulants that make me crash at some point within the workout. As a result, I have changed to creatine monohydrate and beet powder fifteen minutes in advance. It works well and maintains my energy throughout the training session.
    Training and diet consulting available. Send me a PM.

    I am also not a fan of commercial pre-workout drinks.
    I train between meals 1/2 so in afdition to meal 1 (oat-almond-egg pancake), my pre-workout staple = cup of coffee with vanilla whey as creamer plus creatine monohydrate.

    3-4 eggs in omelette (nothing added) W/ 1 or 3/4 cup of oats. 60-90 minutes before workout. Usually 90 minutes.

    I go on and off creatine on 3 months on 1 or 2 months off.

    I havent taken any stimulants pre workout for awhile. Lately its been the following.

    6g Citruline
    4g Beta Alanine
    5g Creatine Mono
    1.5g Agmatine
    4g Hydromax Glycerol
    1500mg Tyrosine
    500mg Choline Bitartate
    20mg Phenylpiracetam
    Nitrates (cant remember the dose)

    Good focus without stims and a brutal pump

    Villacorta especially recommends bananas for morning exercisers: “Get up and eat a medium banana with 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt. Wait about 30 minutes and then hit the gym. Your body will need the carbohydrates and protein.”

    We should eat small and well-rounded breakfast.That will provide quick and long-lasting energy boost.I prefer High-Protein Oatmeal as a breakfast before starting my pre-workouts.

    when I was in mid-prep for my last show I'd have to drink about half of a sugar free red bull for some energy-coffee and I don't always get along due to acidity levels but now I'm usually fine with nothing-I do miss the days of pre-w.o. b/c I loved the slightly cracked out feeling but if it was a day I was doing something heavier like legs? ugh, no-I'd feel almost sick from the stimulants



    sidenote: I have some coworkers who take pre-w.o. to get through a shift...no gym goers here...just people looking for a kick in the booty...not sure how they do it

    Pre-workout (1 hours before)
    I take a serving of whey concentrate (20g protein) and 100g of vegetables (approx 10 - 15g carbs) with both adding up to approx less than 200 calories - 1 hour pre-workout.

    Intra-workout
    creatine + taurine + bcaa (0 calories)

    Post-workout
    whey concentrate (20g) + 2 whole eggs + 300g of vegetable carbs

    Any advice or tweaks? Thanks!

    I'm not crazy for high stimulant Pre-workouts. Normally i just have coffee but recently i tried smoking gun and felt great with that. It had like a clean energy effect, i didn't feel stimmed out like on other pre-workouts. Plus the pump was great.
