Why's that? Do you take anything pre-workout?

I hear there is more to that story Forshaw

Coffee is great before a workout, especially if you're like me and have the world's dullest day job and need that little kick for motivation.

Re: N.O. Explode????

I don't do well at physical endeavors will chemically stimulated. I get much to cerebral. Typically some fruit, maybe a glass of milk and I read msingh posts over at Rip's place. Then I get angry. You would actually like me angry.

YES...anger is a great exercise stimulator. If I'm ****ed off, give me a barbell and some music and I'm good to go.

Re: N.O. Explode????

Read some of Msinghs posts before you lift next time.

I prefer it quiet when I lift. Or mellow music. Mad world is good.

I'll check that out.

I can't do mellow music, but Mad World is a great song. Sometimes my IPOD transitions to some of my classical symphonic pieces and I'm right in the middle of some fast movement...that just ****es me off even more. Or when my IPOD dies altogether. PoS it is.

Re: N.O. Explode????

I like it being just me and the bar, no distractions. It can't run from me, but I can't run either. Just me, the bar and gravity. Only one of us can win.

Re: N.O. Explode????

Coffee (or an espresso), empty stomach but not starving. That works best for me.

I agree that stimulants have at least a placebo/motivational effect. And coffee is safe (not to mention a potent anti-oxidant).

Beyond that, most supplements can not equal the hormonal power of a properly nourished and trained human body, IMO.

Re: N.O. Explode????

N.O. for a reason, don't take it. It's not the best for you in the long run.

All you need is food, fish oil, and a good multi-vit.
