re: Taking pre workout dry
I don't like having to pound down 16oz of water with my preworkout, but I'm definitely not pouring a scoop of powder into my mouth either. I typically mix it with 3 or 4 ounces of water, and down it. then rinse my bottle out, and refill with water for my workout.

Well sure, but that is ignoring the fact that good pre-workouts include supplements that are proven to be beneficial to gains.


They're not necessary, but they're not a waste of money, either.

re: Taking pre workout dry
come on guys this is 2010. We arent confused as to what we are taking if we can actually read. Why the frick would pre workout be weirder than drinking coffee at this point. Hey dont drink protein bc we dont know exactly what they put in there. Might as well just eat chicken.

re: Taking pre workout dry
I don't think anyone's wrong or weird for taking a pre-workout. I take one. I'm just saying that I think there's a lot of shite ones out there that mask being shite by loading up on caffeine and underdosing other beneficial ingredients, and they cover up that fact by using "proprietary blends".

They say it hits you quicker. It doesn't. Pre workouts need water to activate.

I saw that one kid dry shot 4 scoops. It got stuck in his throat so he drank another 4 scoops in water. Had a stroke from over 1200 mg of caffeine.

Charles Darwin smiles.

And this board has threads every now and then that immediately show who has no idea what they’re talking about (not saying this applies to you particularly) and this is certainly one of them.

it’s just totally unnecessary taking a pre workout supplement.


I think it's a personal choice and if it's what someone wants to take... then who are you to tell them its unnecessary?

Has anyone ever done this and why?


Full does in 10 secs vs diluting it in 8-12 oz of water and drinking it slowly.

I hit my creatine dose this am doing it this way. Faster way to take it and I have shite to do!

re: Taking pre workout dry

creatine (long-term use), and beta alanine


Most know creatine is a daily supplement but beta alanine is supposed to taken daily as well.

LINK

quote:

Supplementation strategies
The supplementation strategy for beta-alanine is important to maximize its effects. To date, research suggests that beta-alanine requires a chronic loading dose of 4 to 6 g daily in divided doses of 2 g or less, for a minimum of two weeks (which results in a 20-30 % increase in muscle carnosine concentrations) [4], with greater benefits seen after 4 weeks (40-60 % increase) [19, 39]. To increase muscle carnosine, a larger dose of 6 g, divided into 4 equal doses would be more advantageous. Additionally, if supplementing with a non-time release version, consuming a total daily dose of 6 g would be important for augmenting muscle carnosine [40]. Single large boluses of beta-alanine have been shown to induce paraesthesia (i.e. tingling), and have not been effective for performance outcomes likely due to strong paraesthesia, rapid changes in pH, higher excretion rates, and inability to effectively load the muscle contents. Combining beta-alanine consumption with a meal during beta-alanine loading has also been shown to be effective for further augmenting muscle carnosine levels [41]. In addition, a recent meta-analysis [42] suggested that supplementation with a total ingestion of 179 g of beta-alanine (the average dose across all studies) resulted in a median performance improvement of 2.85 % compared with a placebo. Washout time, or time required for values to return to baseline, may vary between non-responders and responders, requiring 6 to 15 weeks to return to normal [4]. Despite these findings, the maximal concentration or retention of carnosine in human muscle is not well known; thus, we cannot yet provide information on the optimal loading or maintenance doses.

A loading phase (~4 weeks) of beta-alanine supplementation is essential for increasing carnosine levels.


A few more ingredients to look for to synergize with caffeine would be alpha yohimbine and yohimbine

quote:

Alpha-yohimbine and yohimbe (two alkaloids that significantly raise energy levels)


Betaine can also be taken daily, and has studies to back it up for its benefits

quote:

Supplementing with 2.5 grams of betaine daily may:

Increase strength, power, and endurance
Improve muscle growth and recovery
Promote fat loss
Support cardiovascular and liver health
It’s important to note that some pre-workout already contain betaine. So if your pre-workout already contains 2.5 grams, there's no need to add more for that day.

However, it’s recommended to take betaine daily for maximum benefit. So having a standalone betaine supplement on hand can be extremely useful to ensure you’re getting the appropriate amount on both training and non-training days.

re: Taking pre workout dry
Some of the comments in here are pretty wild. Weird for taking a preworkout?

I take preworkout dry. It's not to look cool. It's 3:45 in the morning, I don't want to wash another gd cup. Instructions on my pre are 1 scoop to 4oz water. I usually take about 3/4 of a scoop with a couple big gulps of water.

My pre is $45. It lasts 3 months. $15 a month isn't that bad. I spend more on coffee from the grocery store.

I don't think caffeine at 4 in the morning is effecting my sleep. I'm pretty tired once 9pm rolls around. The 2 year old in my bed effects it more.
