Make your own Pre-Workout

There is nothing that I hate more than wasting my money on overpriced supplements, however I have a hard time getting the most out of my 5 am workouts without a kick in the ass.  After years of buying pre-workout supplements such as Jack3d and C4, I decided to do some research and experimentation to create my own pre-workout for a fraction of the cost.  It turns out that there are only 4 ingredients that are scientifically proven to have any positive effect on performance and muscle building.

Caffeine (200 mg)

This is the main ingredient in every pre-workout drink.  As we all know it improves focus and delays fatigue.  Take one capsule.

Beta-Alanine (500 mg)

This amino acid improves endurance and gives you the “pins and needles” feeling that most are familiar with after taking a pre-workout, take ¼ of a teaspoon.

Citrulline Malate (1-3 grams)

An amino acid that delays the onset of fatigue during intense training. Take ¼ of a teaspoon.

Creatine (5 g)

Most of you are familiar with creatine and it's large volume of studies explaining it's benefits in increasing muscle mass and improving strength. Take ½ of a teaspoon.

Instead of throwing your money away on expensive pre-workout supplements, buy these 4 supplements in bulk, mix them yourself with water (and a little Gatorade mix for flavor) and get the most out of every workout.  I recommend starting with very small doses of each to establish your tolerance and then adjust accordingly.
