    i was wondering if i should take any supplements before training, for the first 30 minutes we usually do a workout, close to the bas rutten ones.
    2 of the days though we do not do the workout and just do a warmup. now i searched the forums and looked at the faq. the search had nothing show up. and the faq i couldnt find anything.
    on google i have read things both for and against taking supplemants before training.
    so should i take stuff like creatine, glutamine, and beta alanine before i train?
    or should i take something i did not mention.
    thanks

    No glutamine. Creatine is fine. BA should be PWO not pre. I take "vendetta" myself.

    I got the following link from the FAQ: http://www.sherdog.net/forums/f15/r...smitter-nootropic-pre-workout-formula-382882/

    I take a great mixture called Buzz Saw from True Protein | High Quality Nutrition and Protein Supplements. It has BCAA's, caffeine, etc. I also add BA on the advice of this forum. Vedic, I was under the impression BA was supposed to be consumed PreWO. Has this changed?

    Beta Alanine is a neural inhibitor,so it's better to take it pwo.

    Yeah, no shit. A massive parasympathetic response preWO is just NOT cool. I can't count how many times I was attempting to warmup before training, looking pasty white, and feeling like I was going to hurl. Trust me, PWO is way, WAY better.
     
  8. holy shit, eh? BA for PWO? why did no one tell me?

    Shit. I have been looking for this thread cuz Ive been taking in PreWO too. I thought because its supposed to help you push through your workouts better or more intense, it made sense to take it PreWO. I guess ill change it up now?

    EDIT:
    This might be a stupid question but...Do you guys take BA on off days? I keep forgetting to take mine on off days. Usually the weekends.

    Neural inhibitor, but I don't know how long the effects last for. I would say minimum 2 hours but it would surely depend on the dosing
