    The preworkout lie

    I thought this was very interessting and enough to send some money away from my pocket. So i ordered l-arginine. And i will use only that before my nect workout, but tons of it. Like 10 grams perhaps. And no coffein.
    As he says, all preworkouts are filled with lots of "scientific" stuff that dont work and just a little of what works.
    Anyone tried his take?...i forsure will

    Carbolyn is good stuff! I like using a P/C BCAAs creatine all in one pre/intra/& post works great keeps your Cs up and energy in up... And keeps you full! The stuff I use is called anabolic recovery matrix P=28 C 35

    Yes creatin bcaa and carb a must, but what do u think of dropping 12 g of l-arginine with no coffee to get the best pump ever and to strecth the fascia at a maximum?

    I think a lot of really expensive pre workout stuff can be broken down and bought seperatey for a lot cheaper..mostly l-arginine,caffeine and sugar I take caffeine arginine pre workout and when Iam bulking drink dextrose and whey..my buddy bought some 80 dollar pre workout stuff and after looking at the ingredients I busted his balls because it was about 15 dollars worth of stuff..

    So why not just use L-Citrulline instead? Works better.

    "He says?"

    Here's the facts. Read up. Whenever you need to research a supplement there is no better place to go than below. Unbiased and just scientific facts:

    I tried citrulline at 6 grams and then tried arginine at 10 grams both had a good pump. I then tried citrulline at 6 grams and arginine at 5 grams together and man that pump was insane! I wasn't on any gear at that time but I definitely felt like I was. I remember reading somewhere that it is best to take both together as it causes a synergistic effect and I definitely believe in it.

    Silabolin, I would take what you read with a grain of salt. If I had to pick one I would chose citrulline because I definitely felt better blood flow than with argnine alone. But again, take this with a grain of salt. Try it out for yourself and see what works best brotha!

    Yes i know the poor bioaviablety, but maybe guys dont take enough. He suggests 12 g.
    Well. I know it in hours. I will try 10 grams before my bicepsworkout today.

    Thanks. Interessting. Yeah i will. Try 10 g arginine today. See how it rolls. I think the pump from beetrootjuice is better than most preworkouts and he says beetrootpump is nothing compared to 12 g arginine

    Ok. I see your logic. He with the best bench is obviously the smartest. Got it. If you ever need brain surgery be sure to search out the doctor with the best bench press. Makes perfect sense.

    I really like that site. Seems to be very unbiased and straightforward. Also Kel, there was a discussion going in another thread recently (believe GGR was the OP), and you mentioned using TUDCA/UDCA if you were on anything other than TRT. If you were on a blast that included a few weeks usage of a 17aa (say 20mgs of var ED), do you use TUDCA/UDCA for a few weeks post blast?
    Thanks!
    There are 3 loves in my life: my wife, my English mastiffs, and my weightlifting....Man, my wife gets really pissed when I get the 3 confused...

    Notice any digestive issues or any unwanted side effects?

    sorry for the avt but its to your friend.

    well almostgone, i have an edgy stomach, but i didnt feel any sides what so ever. Perhaps a little extra gas, but that just fluyshed away any kind of bloated feeling.
    Tired from work and yet, real good pump. I will try it fresh tomorow also, but then i go from 10 to 12 grams, as Mr Vest suggests:-)
    Seriously, the pump in the biceps was like steroidpump.

    Maybe and maybe not with var as it's one of the least hepatotoxic. It would be a coin toss for me though as my values (alt/ast) are always near the top of the scale or over. Any other oral most definitely.

    The ultimate preworkout that i found that works and gives great pumps while not on gear is :
    5g of beta alanine, 5 grams of AAKG, 5 grams of creatine monohydrate, 5 grams of citruline malate and 5 grams of acetyl l-carnitine. Usually is good to preload creatine monohydrate with 20 grams the first 2 weeks then just 5 preworkout and postworkout.
    You can find all the powders on myprotein.com, just pay attention they sometimes have 70% discount on this stuff. Good luck !
