Specifically, I work late on Wednesday nights (7am-3am schedule), so on Thursdays I suffer throughout the work day that started again at 7am and then try to get to the gym tired as hell after work. With roughly 4hrs of sleep, what can I take that will help to rev me up enough to power through the workout and then allow me to crash as usual within 2hrs after my workout?? I was thinking of drinking a ABS Speed Stack or a SF Red Bull.
Put that steel on your back and give it a motherfucking ride, son.
I hope you are healthy especially cardiovascularly. If you have an predispostion towards cardiac arrythmias do not take red bull.
You are better off sleeping at that time if you only had 4 hours rest the night before. Otherwise, your CNS will be shot and your hormone levels will be far from optimal.
You work a 27hr shift?! Or should that read 7pm-3am?
If its just one day a week, make that day a rest day.

Good pre-workout energy supplements are BSN No Xplode, Ephedrine (Vasopro by Megapro), Amped by Met-Rx, and Vault by SAN.
The most popular are probably ephedrine and No Xplode.
Eat an apple
I highly recommend all IronMagLabs supplements!
Assuming you're getting your sleep decently, then AMP or AMP + H.E.A.T. stack are great pre-workout stimulants.

Yeah, I'd say take that as a non workout day. 4 hours of sleep will do you no good at the gym.
I take a little bit of Honey before I leave to the GYM. Seem's to work for me.
