Jack3d works and I mean it.
You use anything to get you going and over the top?
Nitro patches, oxygen, and a little electric shock...
Side effects of using "Jack3d":

My Jack3d review - Bodybuilding.com Forums
I've been lifting off-and on since Jr. High but have never used any sort of supplement beyond the occasional protein shake which is just a nasty, chalky mess.
"Lift heavy and take yer multi".
I don't use anything when I lift. I eat a healthy light meal before (turkey sandwich for example). I think doing a proper warmup is much more important than any supplement is pre-workout. I always walk for about 6 minutes, do a light job, stretch before lifting.
After have a protein shake, and that's all you pretty much need.
Classic and most effective.
Everything else you buy is just 'marketing wonder-stuff' and money rip-off.
Don't buy water-free Caffeine from the free-market.
Only buy Caffeine which is subject to sale by pharmacists, so you get laboratory sterile Caffeine.
It sells as "Coffeinum N 0.2g" and is produced by Mylan Dura.
They sell it in 20 and 50 packages.
You don't need any of that crap. It is all sales hype and disinformation.
Just remember - Everything you think you know about nutrition is probably wrong. Take for instance - the need for lots of PROTEIN!! What a crock! I exercise in a fasted state most of the time and have never lost an ounce of muscle. I only eat twice a day and never worry about a pre-or post workout snack shake or supplement- and I've never lost an ounce of muscle because of it. Some days I only eat about 1/3 of the "bodybuilder" recommended amount of protein - and still no loss of muscle. The food industry realized we are all getting fatter- so they came up with the most crackpot theory of all time....eat 6 times a day instead of 3!! So, like mindless drones, millions of health conscious people started to eat 6 small meals a day.....and they got fatter and fatter. The newest solution?? eat 8 times a day!! What's next? a steady drip of High Fructose corn syrup??
The bottom line is this - Jak'd , stacked, cracked - whatever product is - they are all designed to do one thing - separate you from your hard earned money. Exercise because it feels good and it makes you look good. Eat when you are hungry- and eat real food 80% of the time- like a caveman would - not soda's, cookies, pasta and bread. Do that and you'll look good naked. Isn't that why you are exercising anyway??
The Gym got a krankcycle I like it
This is 90% bullshit, Zander, and because it works for you doesn't change that, it's merely anecdotal.
What part is bullshit? We have over a million years of human evolution to look back upon. Do you think cavemen ate 6 meals a day with lean protein at each sitting? Did they also make sure to drink a Casein shake before bed, so they could "preserve" their lean muscle? Did they make sure to have a "pre-workout" shake before running away from a large predator?? Nope, nope and NOPE!! They ate what they could, when they could, and lifted heavy things once in a while. They were hunter gatherers and they could go weeks without food - and so can you. Powerful vested interests want you to eat 6 meals a day - not because it actually improves metabolism as they say, but because it sells more product. Period.
At any rate, I don't really care what you do - after all it's your money, your life, and your time. If you want to spend your cash buying supplements, pep pills, and Protein powder, go for it!! If eating 6 small meals a day is satisfying for you - go for it! The Placebo effect is probably worth it.
Personally, I'd rather eat a real meal with lots of satisfying real ingredients like steak, broccoli, and lots of butter- maybe once or twice a day; than eat like a bird 6 times a day. But that's just me. I am preparing a huge meal for tonight- about a pound of wild caught coho salmon, potatoes and leeks in a huge pile of butter, and a romaine salad with fresh roasted peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese.
I'll continue to do what I do - It works for me and plenty of other people. The problem is the system I use is free and requires very little discipline or money to follow....
I like 1/2 bag of Chips Ahoy cookies and a big glass of chocolate milk before I work out.
