    Any of you sherbros who goes to gym and took a strong / hardcore booster knows that you will have pretty much almost endless energy the next 1 - 2 hours so why dont ufc fighters drink some right before making their entrance?

    Why not do it during their entrance? And between rounds?

    That would be a terrible idea that shit is for lifting weights not cardio. They would gas stupid fast

    A lot of those boosters raise BP which could really hurt cardio, especially anaerobic. I wouldn't do that. Keep calm, keep that BP as low as possible while still being warmed up and ready.

    A banana and coffee is the best pre workout you can get, so yes they can have them.

    Chael said he takes about 400mg of caffeine before fights IIRC which is close to the allowed limit. Caffeine being the main ingredient in like 95% of pre workout supplements.

  13. Thank you. Yes, I tried this myself. Good for the kind of energy that goes into bodybuilding - muscle recovery and a high heart rate to encourage more sets. That higher heart rate, and the amount of lactic acid you get is terrible for a real sport.

    This. Weightlifting at the gym is very different from striking/wrestling/grappling for 5 minutes at a time.

    Pretty sure caffeine is banned on fight night, I can't imagine any of the stronger stimulants are any better. It really wouldn't help unless they're planning to go out there and get a finish in the opening minutes, in my experience at least stimulants are great for weightlifting but make me burn out very quickly anything that requires some cardio.

    The pump most preworkout provide isn't really good for fighting.

    Better than every PWO available on the market. Yes, I have tried them all. I recommend every active athlete to use this PWO.
