You can use any brand, but Sci-MX is always my brand of choice.
So here goes... I won't bore you with the very long lists of ingredients etc, just a brief overview of what I put in and for what reason. Let us keep this short and sweet ...
During my many years of training I have tried tonnes of different pre workout supplements ranging from Jack3d to Musclepharm Assault and have always had mixed results.
But then I had a breakthrough last November in 'Scimx Xplode Hardcore' and I am addicted!
A good preworkout is essential for me personally, and I've tried ALOT over the years. I find with most pre-workouts I have felt an initial huge spike in energy and that pumped up feeling, but after 45 mins or so of intense training there has always been a noticeable drop off, like a super Mario style star man power up, your buzzing for a short time then, boom! Nothing!
But 'X-Plode Hardcore' is king in my eyes. That initial invincible feeling you get and massive pump paired with the energy boost stays constant throughout my whole work out (mine range from 1.5 to 2 hours), no drop offs at any point, just a slow come down as you come to then end of your session, almost as if it knows when you have finished your workout. An added bonus is the orange flavor is awesome.
I tend to take my BCAAs pre to help with muscle fatigue during training and post workout to help with recovery. This is only a personal pref as Sci-MX recommends taking during training, due to the fact I like to drink a fair amount of water while I train. Sci-MX BCAA IntraHardcore again being my amino source of choice. The orange is my favorite, it tastes the same as the SMX orange, and since I mix them it's just a no brainier.
I add glutamine to top up my bodies natural production in preparation for glutamine depletion during training. Also it helps with the protein synthesis of proteins from Sci-MX BCAA IntraHardcore and Sci-MX X-Plode Hardcore, as well as helping the body metabolize fat and prevent muscle breakdown.
So that's just a quick summary of my pre workout supplementing.
