    Not far off it.

    I could see the point if you were lifting competitively to get that extra wee boost but in the long run it can't be good to be putting that into your body all the time.

    As Mint says, coffee is my pre workout. Works just as good as any supplement I've used.

    I did enjoy myprotein's Pulse, and would be tempted to use it again as it tasted great in lemon n lime and looked the colour of Homer Simpson's radioactive green thing.

    In terms of what's useful I would say a BCAA supplement and an occasional protein shake to make up your macros. Creatine gives a quality pump but also makes my face look like Pob so I swerve it

    I took one of those high caffeine carb gels just before playing a match a while back.

    We lost 3-0 and I was wired until about in the morning with work at 8.30am. So I haven’t taken it since.

    The only supplements that work aren't stocked in Holland and barret or myprotein :giggle1:

    I used to take this stuff called "ultraburn"

    Ingredients were

    .10 mg yohimbine.
    20mg DMAA (banned stuff that was in the infamous jack3d pre workout)
    10mg synephrine hcl (ephedrine)
    200mg caffiene.
    15mg sibutramine (kills your appetite stone dead)

    Stuff was good but brutal at the same time, the crash you got after a couple of weeks of use was harsh to say the least.

    @Ron Swanson @Seán Mac D

    Tanned that pre-workout half an hour ago. Face is numb. Hands are tingling.

    Waiting for the gym to open so just standing out in the car park doing star jumps!

    Back on keto, a week into it and enjoying it again. Mainly doing it as I had a few heavy weekends in the last 2 months or so and diet kind of went to * as well, so hoping to slim down a small bit between now and Christmas when I’ll inevitably have a few heavy ones again.

    Once we’re into new year I plan on sticking to a strict diet of lean meats, red meat occasionally, fruit, veg, healthy fats and wholegrain. Want to try and cut pizza and Chinese out of my diet altogether.

    Trying to mix it up a bit from last time I did keto. After a run tonight I had a bowl of raspberries and blueberries in unsweetened almond milk with 2 teaspoons of crunchie peanut butter and flaxseed sprinkled on top.

    So * good. :35:
