    A great homemade pre-workout...

    In an effort to cut my supplement costs I have come up with what I think is the cheapest and most effective pre-workout. All you need is NOW beta-alanine bulk powder, NOW l-arginine bulk powder, NO-DOZ and Gatorade powder.

    Mix 6 grams of arginine with 4 grams of beta alanine in a glass of gatorade and down one or two NO DOZ with it and presto, you get the pump from the arginine, tingles from the alanine and caffeine for energy.

    500 gram tubs of alanine and arginine were around 20 bucks each and NO DOZ is around 5 and this will make over 100 servings. Cheap and effective.

    Whatever you do don't smell the arginine powder, I can honestly say that it is the worst smelling substance I have ever smelled...at least the smell goes away when it dissolves

    I do this also. Arginine is the worst tasting stuff ever, like I taste it in my heart palpitations when I drink it too concentrated, try it u will see what I mean.

    It does save money tho. I use Arginine, beta-al, glutamine, and fiber powder mixed with water and then down some cold coffee. Mmm mmm good.
