Hey. This is my first post, but I've been lurking for a while.
I've tried Jack3d and I didn't really get any effect. Only dizziness after an hour then a huge crash, then bad mood. Felt weird and not good.
Then I tried 1 MR, no effect at all. No side effects either.
I don't drink coffee, and I feel like I am immune to caffeine. This can't be possible. What's going on?

Pre Workouts = no effect? Immune?

How much did you use and what's your body weight / makeup? Do you consume stimulants from any other sources on a regular basis? If so you might want to consider a week or two break from all stims and try again or maybe you need a higher dose given your body makeup. You might also want to consider simply using pre-workouts for their other abilities, aside from stims. There are plenty of great stim free products available too (Hemavol, Pump Bol, Ultama, Animal Pump, etc) or you can choose to make your own (use search, there are plenty of threads about them)

Sadly Jack3d Is overrated, i am using it now and it's not giving the required effect, i used before Xpand Xtreme Pump from Dymatize it was awesome it is rated 7.7 i think on BB.com but i give it 10. One scoop is enough and when you pump you feel your body burning and you can do more reps and rest less. with jack3d i feel exhausted after workout

I took 1 full scoop of 1MR (can't really take much more since I am not used to stuff like this).
Jack3d and 1 MR are the only pre workouts I can reach right now (not illegal in my country), so i can't try anything else for now. Thinking about not using pre workouts at all since I am doing fine without it. I also hate the taste, it really sits in my mouth after drinking it and it bothers me while working out.

I don't know if you do this already, but if you're looking for more drive and pump in the gym....have a solid preworkout meal before you go to the gym. I would say 1-2 hours before you go. Get some carbs in you. That will seriously impact your workout. I will never train on an empty stomach.

Also, thanks everyone else for replying in this thread. My conclusion is that I won't go for any preworkouts. It's clearly not my thing. I also won't bother ordering other stuff, cause it probably won't work.

I have tried c4 and gold standard pre and I tried 1 scoop did nothing then 2 and still nothing. my friend goes nuts when he has it but I almost fell tired. Then even though I take it in the afternoon it keeps me up all night. It is really innoing so I have stopped taking it. Also I never drink coffee and energy drinks. but I know if I have caffiene from a coffee or energy drink it gets me pinging heaps. But 350mg of caffiene is doing nothing to me. Confuses the f**k out of me. Although I had light tingles all the times I had it, and maybe a little but more muscle endurance but I didnt feel anymore focused or energised.
