    Anything new in the world of pre-workouts?

    Seems like I have been out if the loop and just get the same 3 or 4 pre-workouts since there doesn't seem like there isn't any new ingredients/innovation.

    FDA and their push for NDI notification process makes innovation more difficult, but it depends on what you're looking for in a pre to determine what a good recommendation might be

    Caffeine for energy and citrulline for pump. What else is there?

    Beta-alanine (endurance) and arginine (pump) - no idea how useful these are. From what I know, citrulline >>>> arginine

    Some use neurotransmitters before workout
    - tyrosine
    - Huperzine
    - Mucuna Pruriens
    - Alpha GDP or other type of choline
    - L-dopa (Fava beans)
    - Ashwagandha
    - Rhodiola

    No idea how good these are. I am currently using a preworkout that has 300 mg of Alpha GDP and it seems better than a caffeine pill. It also has 300 mg caffeine. Maybe it is placebo.

    Talked with a guy who swears by a hit of THC before his workout. Says it's like a feel good "runner's high" that gets him through his workouts in good fashion. Don't know if I believe it but I did see an article on the topic since our conversation.

    Almost all garbage. Not sure if they want you to spazz out or have a good workout. Gets old seeing 50% of the formula filled with noontropics.

    7-8 years ago you could almost grab anything and get a nice hype going on. Now its like you have to look for a needle in a haystack.

    Best I enjoy now is a straight can of C4 starburst flavor from the store. Drink half or 3/4ths and gets me going descent.
