What is it?Every time you stay out late...
Every time you sleep in...
Every time you miss a workout...
Every time you don't give 100%...
You make it that much easier for me to beat you...
All men are created equal, some just work harder

They dont actually ban caffeine. Student athletes are allowed to drink soda and coffee. They just ban caffeine "doping" but no one is going to drink that much coffee in that little time coincidentally an hour before you've been randomly selected for a piss test.
So to the OP, an energy drink isn't going to get you in trouble. The ncaa regulates stimulants, like caffeine, but you will only get in trouble if they are at an extremely excessive amount.
supposedly Jack3d has ingredients that are banned by the ncaa, but the d-1 team I was on, there were a few dozen people using jack3d and they never got in trouble. And that was probably because they werent taking the supp 5 times a day. Most just took it right before practice and right before games.

I feel like absolute garbage if I do high intensity cardio while I am amped up on caffeine. But that's me, you should try it to see how you like it.I got a vision for the life that's right in front of me
I got a right, I got a reason, got a destiny
I know exactly where I'm headed and Iím never looking back.

The bans for in game.. and yes there is a ban against some energy drinks in game. The amount banned equals about 5 cups of coffee... If you get tested with higher then allowed levels of caffeine you will be suspended.
Now as for jacked3 the old version with gernium oil (1,3, Dimethylamyaline) is on the banned list to, it's also banned by WADA. It also has a history of causing false positives on other drugs which will can get you suspended.

People just need to know the ingredients in the supplements they are taking. There are tons of effective pre workout/pre game supplements that dont contain any banned ingredients. And you can drink any of those energy drinks you get at gas stations or groccery stores. Some contain very high levels of caffeine, but yet still not enough to reach that level which will get you in trouble.
here is a very good article:
As a NCAA student athlete, you rarely ever get tested. And when you do, you will be notified a couple days in advance. Its not like as you are running out onto the field for the game someone will grab you to take a test. The only time you will ever get tested at a game is during championship games, tourneys, bowl games, etc.
So ya if you are taking something actually illegal, like hgh or roids, then theres really no way around. Pretty simple, dont do it. But as for the caffeine level, you will never reach that banned level, and if you do, there is a near impossible chance of you getting pulled aside to take a piss test since most people take there pre workout right before games, and like I explained, you wont be tested anywhere around this time. And also, you are given a couple days in advance when you do have to take a test. Therefore, just dont take your pre workout supp that day if you are worried about its caffeine levels. As for other ingredients, thats your responsibility to find out if they are banned or not.
So in short, dont worry about the caffeine part of supplements. Worry about the other ingredients for your pre workout supp. If you are just taking an energy drink like Amp, red bull, rockstar, etc.. you won't test positive for them, even if you drink 10 of them prior to a game. Your caffeine level would be beyond that restricted level lol but like I said, you dont get tested prior to a game or during a game (unless its the post season, then you can get tested whenever)
The only way you will get in trouble for high levels of caffeine is if you purposely drink 5 red bulls prior to your piss test, which you were given 2 days in advance warning of that test. LOL so in other words, you would just be sabotaging yourself.

But first whether he would test positive for high levels of caffeine would depend on great many factors.. including other fluid intake, his metabolism, ect.. that's on individuals to make that call.
IDK where he plays football but the players I know would get booted for taking anything and I mean anything without a couches or trainers permission.
Taurine and guarana are both very common in energy drinks and can cause you to pop on a test.
IMO caffeine not that great .. why bother, in to high a doses it actually hinders athletics. If he's having trouble getting through practice I suggest getting your ass out there and working harder.. build conditioning.

High levels of caffeine is bad and becoming dependent on caffeine can be bad. But low levels of caffeine has its benefits, well beyond just performance. plus completely cutting out caffeine is pretty hard to do. And is not something that is needed to be done.
But there really is no need to take an energy supplement prior to the game. You should have high adrenaline levels during games. If you don't, then you have bigger things to worry about.
If your body feels depleted and lack of energy, adding a supplement isn't a good idea. It's a sign that you need to fix your diet.

Like everyone says it all depends on what's in it.
I personally have started using focus xt (it's not really a pwo, more of a nootropic) but I really like the way it makes me feel and when track starts ill be drinking that before a meet. It's got some caffiene in it but all the ingredients are legal and good by ncaa standards.
That's what I use but if what your taking is legal by federal and ncaa standards then I'd say you're ok to take it but ethically and morally is another story.

I take a pre before hockey sometimes. Depends on how you respond personally. If you don't crash and it doesnt hurt your stomach then go for it. I use Nano Vapor with no issue. I have C4 and Rage too. Nano gives me better pumps but rage good energy.******official misc photography crew ******
