    Making Your Own Pre

    First off... been A LONG time since I've been on these boards and since I've used supps. Hey, life happens right....

    So, I'm getting back into the swing of things and wanted to start using a Pre again. Been away so long I started looking at what's new out there, etc. It seems to me more and more people are going the route of making their own pre. So since I never considered this route, I have a few questions.

    1. Do you find it cheaper when you make your own?
    2. What would you consider absolutely critical to add, and what are some things you could or could not add?


    Thanks

    I don't think more and more people are making their own pre. It's not usually worth the time, effort, or even cost, unless by pre you mean caffeine and citrulline and that's about it.

    Critical? Caffeine.

    If you have to ask these questions I'd say save your time and effort and just buy a pre and get on with it

    I guess I just jumped to conclusions that more people were making their own! I'll check out the ones you listed. Appreciate it.

    I'll mix some different stuff together, but I use other products (i.e. adding stim free pre with stimmed pre, or just adding creatine to a pre). I don't know anyone that mixes their own anymore. Most pres out there are pretty complete and well dosed these days. Plus, the flavoring aspect.

    Gotcha. Yeah, it looks that way from the few responses I got. So I'm just gonna shift gears and look into pres. Might do a stimmed/pump boost combo.

    For real though, anything that gives a caffeine + sugar kick will get you moving. I usually have a banana and shot of espresso 30min pre.. if you need something stronger, take a double dose of caffeine. If you need something stronger, convince yourself that you dont.. imo

    I'm just coming back to the game myself, your post brought me out from the shadows lurking.

    looks like supplements have come a helluva way when I used to make my own

    Electrolyte powder
    Beta Alanine
    ephedrine
    Caffeine
    Taurine
    1,3 Dimethylamylamine (think they made it illegal now though)
    Citruline Malate
    L-Arginine HCL (correct me if I'm wrong, but I've glanced that arginine gone to **** now too?)
    Vitamin B Complex
    Tyrosine


    I'm hella rusty though, fresh off the "life" bandwagon too. But I'm slowly making a comeback to lifting heavy
    Just did my first heavy deads the other day in over 12 months of no serious lifting, 145kg x 6 150kg x 5 160kg x 2 (though I couldn't help myself and used a grenade sample for pre workout ahh)

    Ive made my own really simple pre and it works great


    Something that all pre's are missing - fast carbs


    Squatting with a bunch of juicy sodium and carbs in me is great



    200 mg caffiene
    60g carbs - maltodexterin
    teaspoon of beta alanine
    teaspoon of creatine
