Sometimes it is much needed. Just be sure to take a break from it every so often. Especially if you use it consistently. Which one do you use?

I don't know much about pre workouts - what do they contain? Simple+Complex carbs?

mostly caffeine and arganine to get your blood flowing and give you energy. if you sit still after it kicks inyou will start to get all tingly and itchy. it helps give you a boost on days you aren't feeling up to working out. I'm sure some people take it more often than I do. it's alot of caffeine and I'm not a big girl so I don't use it excessively lol

Oh I see. I'm not sure I like the idea of high dose caffeine. Does it give you palpitations?

no lol but I dont like the idea if it much either. that's why I rarely use it. but when I do... I get shit done! haha

Only on my Cardio day or Walking Lunges day. I use No Fury and only half a scoop. I don't react well with high amounts of caffeine.

Pre workouts are a huge boost! I just took Hyde for the first time and felt pumped!! It also tastes like jolly ranchers

Looking through the ingredients, you can probably make your own mix for less. Crap pile of stimulants, a mix of amino acids,  and varying combo of proteins, carbs, salts, and other nutrients depending on the target audience (weight loss, body building, endurance, whatever). Most of the extra stuff isn't necessary, can be found under more common names, or can be purchased elsewhere (as powder or pill) for less.

Save yourself a dime. I make 1 cup cold pressed coffee (caffeine), add 40g chocolate whey protein, half a frozen banana (fructose & potassium), half a cup 2% milk (lactose & fat), ice, and make a smoothy. During late spring early summer I add a little creatine. All the rest I find and take as tablets. It gives me precise control of what I put in my body. Try it before you say it's not the same.

I use the herbalife 24 Prepare, it gives an extra boost of energy to prolong your workout.
