    More Cit than you need
    Beta alanine isn't timing dependent and has little benefit unless you're training multiple sessions per day or are an endurance athlete.
    Okay on beet root, but I'd just get a nitrate of some sort
    Caffeine is fine at 200 if that's what you want
    Creatine isn't timing dependent, but if that's a convenient time to take it, cool.
    DAA has a lot of downside and no upside. DO NOT BUY NOR USE.
    Vitamin D3? Sure if you want

    Overall it's meh/10 for me. You could just buy something that has cit, nitrates and/or agmatine with some caffeine in it and just put your bulk creatine in it and probably be better off from a cost perspective.

    What specifically are you looking to get out of your pre workout? Lucia made some great comments.. maybe we can help fine-tune this and add it better ingredients.

    Sounds good but you can include 3 to 5 gram of L-Arginine. It increases the nitric oxide levels in the blood and becomes a reason for the increment of blood flow in your muscles. I usually include it to get rid of fatigue. On the other, to improve the taste of your drink the use of blueberries and greek yoghurt could also be a good idea. In the early days of lockdown, I made pre-workout drinks at home but now, I am using this pre-work supplement.

    I found it very useful.

    This is a good question. One I normally ask, but in this case I assumed, maybe incorrectly, that pumps was what you were after. That said, understanding if you want feelings of energy, pumps, focus or some combination of the three would be useful to help.

    This issue here is that arginine does a worse job of increasing blood levels of arginine than other things. So no, with that amount of citruline, you'd certainly not need straight arginine.

    Appreciate the feedback guys - I am new to this site but have been steadily working out over the past 3 years. Main purpose of Pre workout drink was to get
    Pump, Energy, and Focus all in one drink. I tend to workout in the AM

    Any tweaks based on the above ?

    Thanks again guys

    In addition- it appears that utilizing Bulksupplements.com will net me all my ingredients far cheaper than buying a Pre made workout. Is this pretty common ?

    Agmatine should be included in every preworkout. It's cost effective too.

    Not sure what you'd call the Bold if not "tweaks."

    Can I get Gatorade concentrate powder, then add 30 days of each (proportioned appropriately) supplement - shake/mix up then add a scoop daily to water???

    Guess my question is can I combine ingredients so I don't have 5 separate containers that I need to pull from daily ?
