Energy Drink

Hey everyone,

I wanted to know if you had suggestions on a good energy drink mix to use before and during WODs? I was using IsaGenix Want More Energy, but I ran out and it is pretty expensive.

Any suggestions would be very appreciated!

Thanks

Re: Energy Drink

Yes. Make your own

Buy bulk BCAA, beta alanine, betanine and maybe add some caffeine?

Re: Energy Drink

I once mixed no-xplode and red bull. Not advisable -_-

These days I just settle for some BCAA powder and creatine. I don't know how much energy it gives. But it's tasty.

Re: Energy Drink

Thanks for the suggestions.

So do you guys drink BCAA before and during workouts?

I found this on Smart Powders - http://www.smartpowders.com/instanti...-servings.html

Juts curious as I am a little new to supplements and such... I drink a protein shake after working out, but that is about it.

Re: Energy Drink

I think proper nutrition over the day/ hours before a workout will do far more than any energy drink with bad nutrition.

I am not sure BCAA will do anything for workout energy. Neither creatine at point of consumption.

Beta Alanine may have some intra-workout benefit.

Caffeine is probably the best suggestion so far.

Re: Energy Drink

Well if you just want a quick "fix" before each workout I will suggest a espresso shot or a cop of coffee mixed in a protein shake.

Re: Energy Drink

This site has a pretty good break down of a prework supplement stack.

Its information based (rather than an actually product) and the site itself is an amazing resource.
