Can someone recommend a good supplement to use before a workout.  I was taking NO-Xplode with good results but the 50$ it costs get old.  Looking for something like a fat burner for an energy boost.  Ive used SAN Tight and liked it but didnt know if there was anything better.. thx.

ECA stack is the ultimate boost...Nothing beats it.  Except maybe meth

Try training WITHOUT a supplement for a while.

Over reliance on supplements is just as bad as anything else my friend.

I dont doubt ive gotten used to the energy they give me.. I havent lifted in about 4-5 months because of a bad wrist injury... my endurance and energy levels are way way down not to mention I was working out with 225 and now im struggling with 155.  I have a few Atomic Fusion (eph HCL) pills left I can use up.

For energy I really like VPX Redline liquid.  It's the best product I've used next to VPX Clenbutrx.

I don't care for excessive stimulants.  My style is coffee first thing in the morning, BCAAs, Glutamine and Arginine and Aleve 30 minutes before, creatine, dextrose, and whey right before.  I always have energy, although sometimes i boot during squats, leg press, or deadlifts.

I lift in the morning and  I have a big cup of coffee with yogurt.  Coffee does great.  Kinda makes me wonder if coffee does great for me and several others I know then how bad for your heart is ephedrine and those drug cocktails that jack you up so far?

I agree.  I have gotten hooked on caffeine before I train, and the bad thing about it is that I have to continue to take more and more as time goes by.  Don't get me wrong, caffeine can be a great boost, but you don't want to get to the point where you are having to take 600-800-mg every workout.  I am in the process now of trying to ween myself off caffeine, and then i will go for a time and train without it.  Next time I will only use caffeine now and then.  I know that this is not really anything that serious, but when you are taking large amounts it can start to affect things such as sleep.

Generally speaking i find that if I have no energy i just get in there and hit something like a drop set, kinda convince myself that at least i will get that done. By the time I'm through it the target muscle can be a bit drained but man, my energy is amped.

Ya gotta love adrenaline.

IDS Kranker Powder...works well and is inexpensive.

Don't believe the hype my man.  NoXpolde = crap.  If you like that stuff, see above thread about L-Arginine.

Buy some caffeine pills if you want a cheap fix,  $6 will get you 100 (try scifit brand).  If you want, add some Ephedrine HCL and you're set.

Redline is good but expensive. 

On a side note, I'm assuming the 225lb is for bench press?  You can still train a few body parts with a bad wrist, legs for one.

methyl efx is better and cheaper than no-xplode.  one scoop of methyl-fx is the same as two scoops of no-xplode.  take 30 minutes before training.  be warned, it tastes horrible, but it works

I love musclemilk mocha joe pre-workout. It's got a little caffeine, and chased with a vitamin E, it helps release the energy of the MCT's while u train. But if u don't like protein before training, then go with 17HD from Vyotech. I won't even comment. U just simply gotta try it.it's worth the money for energy, and gains.
