Which preworkout?

Recommended Posts

So I currently use Mr Hyde which gives me a super pump when working out. Been looking at a new one and the general vibe is that the below are the best ones to go for. Has anyone had any experience and can point me in the right direction?

EVL ENGN Shred
CELLUCOR C4
REDCON1 Total War
ABE Pre workout

Thanks guys.

My last was Edge of insanity, very good. I've just asked for Stimumax black for a birthday treat. Loads of lads have raved about it on here.

 

I've only had c4 off your list and that was years ago. Didn't rate it tbh.

@Clubber Lang @Philfg I've seen you two guys talk a lot of good stuff about this stimumax black.

Ive not used any of the really strong preworkouts for a couple years, I've just stick to the basic my protein one, but I'm seriously tempted to try this:lol:

Is it similar to the old school DMAA ones?

God its been too many years to remember what the banned DMAA pre-workouts are like and to compare.

Im quite sensitive to stims so dont want anything too strong as i still feel the effects far too long after training, when i wanna relax and rest i cant as my bodies still hyper. I dont like that feeling, have to have half a diaz to chill me out.

Strom are a very good brand. Just bought a tub of their stim-free pre-workout for the missus, which she used today, said she likes it. Concentration levels felt better.

The Black Edition, they sometimes have the 3x serving sample tubs in. I got one of those and used 2x servings before i felt it was too strong.

They do a regular strength pre-workout too, https://www.stromsports.com/collections/strom/products/strom-presents-stimumaxpro-v2

Why mess around with all this DMAA stuff and not just take something dirt cheap and easily available like amphetamine?

I gave all that up mate.  I don't really wanna go back to the strong preworkouts either, but I figure I've gotta have at least one vice:lol:

Yeah I get what you're saying, it's not a nice feeling, being all angsty and jittery hours after a workout.  I'm probably just looking back with rose tinted glasses to the likes of Jack3d. 

Ive had look at some of Strom's range, I really like the look of their pump formula, I've never actually used a pump only blend before, I think I'm gonna go for it.

my missus will use the Strom stim-free pump powder again today, see how she gets on.

one thing thats good about buying a stim-free powder is that you can add caffeine to it if needed. So you could have a cup of black coffee 45mins before training then drink your stim free just being you train.

Sweet, I've ordered it myself, unicorn p#ss flavour:lol:

Good idea stacking it with a black coffee, I still need some caffeine before a work out. :thumbup1:

Update, I've been using storms stimumax black edition for about a week now, got to say I love it. I went for the grap3d flavour, it's ok taste wise, not the best I've had. Stuff kicks in about 20mins for me on an empty. Buzz it's just right. Just the right amount of caffeine, tingles and focus I like. It last right through the sessions and don't really notice a come down or crash at all. 

It feels a very nice clean buzz, best a can describe. Some I've had I feel really toxic on them.

I seem to build up a tolerance to stims very quickly - really enjoyed Strom Stimumax Black the first few times I used it ( in conjunction with their non stim Vascumax) but now have to use sparingly to notice it.  I also crank the dosage of both up a touch and take with a strong black coffee.

Ephedrine, Clen, DMAA - all quickly build up a tolerance to.  Proper raw Yohimbine is a different kettle of fish but for you take too much it makes you feel  God awful!

I'm currently using this;

Cheap-ish, pretty well dosed and zero fiz when its mixed. Sits in my stomach well and isn't too strong of a flavour (blue raspberry)

I've come to the conclusion, based upon plenty of reading, that the only pre I would confidently buy, is Gorilla Mode (there are a handful of others too, but this is a standout of the ones I've taken a look at). 

Unfortunately, they are not shipping to the UK at the moment because of we-all-know-what.

99% of formulas just seem so underdosed :/
