Pre-workout use age

Every Saturday I train in the morning (weight training at 9am) and play football in the afternoon (90 minutes at 3pm).

I am wondering that if I take a pre workout in the morning will it impact my energy levels in the afternoon by the time if has 'worn off'?

Anybody with an idea on this or experience would be great to hear your advice!

Depends which one you use, some people find if they use a heavy stim product at 6pm they struggle to sleep some 5 hours later so the effects are still in your system also some products do cause a crash which you would have to factor in if needing energy for football.

Depends how serious you take your football, my son is with a League 1 youth team so I take an interest in their nutrition, players do lift weights prior to a game but not with any intensity.

Rooney and Adebayor are 2 players I know to use Redbull just before a match.

It really does depend on the product some have long lasting energy some can make you crash but in my experience you only crash when youve actually settled down. I dont start walking along feeling tired.
 
I would take a pre workout before training , get some good carbs in your PWO shake like Cyclic dextrin or something fast acting not bloating so your topped up with carbs for football. 
 
Couple spoons of coconut oil or MTC powder may help too but I dont think the pre workout will affect your football not these days anyway .
 
The ones with DMAA in may have done before but there not really about now.

I agree with Redwing when these pre workouts contained DMAA then the simple answed would have been yes the drop off will effect your football, but, I have yet to use one since the new regulations that effected my afternoon sessions as when I am in contest prep I train in a morning 9.30am on prework out and again in an afternoon on no prework out.
