Caffeine Pre Workout
I was drinking a 16oz iced tea about 1-2 hours before my workout for energy which was working out pretty good for me. I am working on a cutting diet that I am going to start on in the next month or so, and the ice tea brought my carbs up too high.
I decided to stop drinking the iced tea and bought some 200mg caffeine pills. I took one yesterday 2 hours before my workout. It did pick me up, but as I was working out, I kept running out of steam for some reason and had a pretty bad workout. I wasn't wired, just my endurance was real low.
I wonder why this is. The iced tea worked great for me, but the pills didn't.

Your caffeine crash occurred during your workout.

Caffeine levels peak at 1 hour after consumption. You waited too long.

When I would take the Iced Tea, I took it a few hours before and it seemed to work well. By the time I was ready to work out, I felt great. Do you think that maybe the caffeine in Iced Tea takes longer to go into the bloodstream?

Took 200mg Caffiene hour before I did Swole's leg workout.
Needless to say, today I'm dead to the world!!

Maybe it was something else then causing this. I didn't take any caffeine yesterday except for a 16oz ice tea and I had another bad workout. My endurance and motivation starting running real low half way through my workout and I was getting tired.
I am sleeping a good 8 hours a night, but do get up in the middle of the night here and there to take a leak due to all the water I drink. But that's nothing new. The only other thing that I can think of is that I upped my test e dosage a little over 2 weeks ago. Maybe it's too much.
