    1 scoop of scivation pre kicked in stronger, then 2 scoops lol. Had 100mg theanine per scoop.

    Nope, I've never had that kind of effect unless the theanine dose is higher than the dose of stimulants. For me, it adds focus while taming the stim effect without completely eradicating it.

    Nutrabio PRE has 300mg of L-Theanine so you barely feel the 350mg of caffeine and even the version that use
    to have Y in it you couldn't even tell it had Y. Aplha Lion use to have 300mg of L-Theanine in their SH pre
    but I noticed that their new version dropped it to 150mg cause I guess they saw some of the feedback where
    some said they didn't feel any energy though there were some who trained at night and loved the formula cause
    they could fall right to sleep after training at night after using SH..

    Ya I've heard plenty of people complain about theanine in pres, I just don't get the same reaction. Guess it's just one of those ingredients people either take to or don't.

    It became label hype real fast. I found it to mellow out higher amounts of caffeine at 100 mg's

    I'm happily surprised to see the forums still going strong after those ominous posts a few months back

    Having only tried C4 Ultimate On The Go and C4 Ultimate, I know very little about Pre Workouts. I liked them both a lot, but I feel like changing it up so I don't get used to the same formulas (I don't know if there is merit in this?) and to just broaden my horizons on what's available.

    I'm hoping for some recommendations on the good stuff: some combination of energy, focus, and pumps. My workouts are normally 1.5 to 2 hours of lifting followed by 45 to 60 minutes of low intensity steady state cardio.

    I think I'm looking for 3-5 g of Beta Alanine, 8 g of Citrulline Malate, and Caffeine. I'm already taking Creapure separately, but creatine in the PWO formula isn't a dealbreaker. Does that sound about right? Is there anything else I should look for? Is there anything I should be wary of?

    I'm taking a look at these ones:




    Any advice, cautions, or recommendations would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance!

    The first one has WAY too much L-Theanine the 2nd one is Dymatize's PW and it's pretty good on energy,pumps,
    but a bit weak on focus but it's a good option, the 3rd looks good but it's light on caffeine and it would be better
    if the L-Theanine was 100mg instead of the 200mg but the focus looks really good so I would opt for #2 or #3
    or both so you can rotate them around each workout.

    I believe it's Alphagen from Morphogen Nutrition.

    They have very strong formulas, private label only. $48 each, with some 10% coupons floating around, so they're definitely "premium."

    Pretty expensive for 20 servings though.
    As I remember you could find first two options for much cheaper.
    OP C4 ultimate is also great.

    Speaking of pre-workouts, I just cracked open another tub of ANS Ritual earlier this week after a long, long break. I guess it's been discontinued so I had to buy from fleaBay. Sigh.

    I've used more tubs of this than any other pre-wo. It's easily my all time #1.

    I dont know what makes it so damn good, but it just jives with me really well at 1 rounded scoop.

    Maybe it's dat dere dendrobium extract. Heh.

    So tempted by the two remix protein flavors. Still have 10lbs of sealed protein though. I wonder how they taste in fairlife milk?

    or both so you can rotate them around each workout.
    Thank you very much for your knowledge! It helped me figure out what to look for as I'm digging deeper into this rabbit hole.

    I also found the theanine to be odd in these pre workouts, I normally take it with melatinin to sleep. I figure maybe it works in conjunction with caffeine or stimulants differently?



    Originally Posted by blokpost View Post

    Yes, its Morphogen Alphagen $$
    I'm probably invested in lifting enough that I'm picking up both Alphagen and Volugen (the Stim Free version)

    As I remember you could find first two options for much cheaper.
    OP C4 ultimate is also great.
    Yeah, I'm definitely reupping on C4 Ultimate. Probably ordering 3 containers later tonight in different flavors to try out.

    Also I discovered this company that makes a non stim pre workout that I think would be good during stim breaks, but I know very little about preworkouts at this stage so???


    I looked into it and I believe they are releasing the stim version any day now:


    Again, I don't actually understand what level of quality they are other than what I have read about online.

    But, I'm looking forward to trying them all out!!

    Thank you everyone for responses and reps on spread, cheers!

    *edit*
    Just ordered 3 tubs of Cellucor C4 Ultimate
    2 tubs of Morphogen Alphagen
    2 tubs of Morphogen Volugen

    Waiting on MA Labs to release Collision Course to save on shipping.

    *edit 2*
    MA Labs products don't accept credit cards, so that's probably not happening after all.

    I'm hoping for some recommendations on the good stuff: some combination of energy, focus, and pumps. My workouts are normally 1.5 to 2 hours of lifting followed by 45 to 60 minutes of low intensity steady state cardio.

    I think I'm looking for 3-5 g of Beta Alanine, 8 g of Citrulline Malate, and Caffeine. I'm already taking Creapure separately, but creatine in the PWO formula isn't a dealbreaker. Does that sound about right? Is there anything else I should look for? Is there anything I should be wary of?

    I'm taking a look at these ones:




    Any advice, cautions, or recommendations would be much appreciated, and thank you in advance!
    the last one looks great. I'd personally add a caffeine tab, but I'm a stim head.

    I dont know what makes it so damn good, but it just jives with me really well at 1 rounded scoop.

    Maybe it's dat dere dendrobium extract. Heh.

    The best. Didn't know it was discontinued, but that explains why I haven't seen it recently. Now I'm sad.

    Used a few tubs of Vortex back when it first dropped and i really liked it. Great flavoring system too.

    Some companies have extra barriers to cross in order to acquire a bank account for various reasons, and I guess MA Labs is unfortunately in this category. I don't think it's necessarily suspicious, but I'm still disinclined to go through the extra steps for a product I could otherwise purchase without hassle.

    Yeah I ended up buying some of those. I think the reasoning for the lower caffrine is so the Pumps aren't diminished, but I'll report in a couple months after using them extensively for a more informed review.

    Also ended up picking up 12 lbs of Dymatize ISO 100
