Which Pre Workout do you currently use?

Looking to get a new pre workout..

I've been using "Game Day" for a couple of weeks but it definitely seems to make me crash way to early during the workout..

What do you lot use or recommend?

I remember using MRI's "Black Powder" back in the day

Thanks, Ad.

Currently using TPW Genesis. 
 
Not noticed any crash, but a good clean energy.

You suffer from severe anxiety do you not?

I would avoid all pre-workouts and stims.

Just finished Assault.

Have charge to start but I use pre workouts sparingly to say the least.

You did gain far too much fat though,I mean,you're not muscular at all,you're just a fat mess.

Go to the gym without a concoction of stimulants beforehand? Surely not

I had a load of free pre workout samples from the expo last year I tried a few to which I didn't really rate (hemo rage, pre) I find a coffee and a banana before I train is a lot better.

Double espresso / strong cup of coffee normally do the job well. Tastes good too :)

Something with caffeine in. Quite like to take a thermas with a coffee in in the morning at the weekend.
 
Generally I see the slew of prewo supps as pretty much pointless. I known people enjoy using them. Fair one. However it won't improve progress. It may make a session more fun if your wired and a bit more pumped? Yay :)

I train at 6am and was tempted to start using something but I worry about becoming reliant on them and the cost.
 
I now have a 200mg caffeine tab just to avoid faffing with coffee and because it's stronger.  Then a teaspoon or 2 of coconut oil.  I've run out of coconut oil this week and energy was fine this morning but I didn't notice my body temperature rise as quick...... although it is freezing today.

Caffeine tab... Sometimes several if I know I'm going for some maximal lifts.

USN's Muscle Fuel Anabolic is the only thing I have and its lovely with porridge.  But in answer to the question, I struggle to eat before training, hope that will stop, soon.

Some oats and whey a couple of hours before and then a decaf coffee and pepsi max. Hardcore. If you need to stim up to high heaven before lifting a few weights there's a problem, particularly in the long term, with a risk of burnout. Making the gym routine is the key. I don't take stimulants before brushing my teeth.

none now. used to have a couple of scoops of whatever I had at the time and spent most of my gym time talking rapidly and pacing up and down between sets lol

Strong black coffee and BCAAs if AM training, otherwise nothing.  If I'm really not feeling up to it I may have a sneaky can of Monster Zero.
