L-Theanine works synergistically with Caffeine by raising hormones in your body that promote relaxation, as a result, it controls the energy given by the caffeine. If you’re worried you might have a low tolerance to caffeine, then make sure your pre workout contains L-Theanine.

Betaine is another effective ingredient that you should look for in a pre workout. It has been found that betaine improves your performance by allowing you to increase the repetitions in a compound exercise. Not only this, but it also improves the quality of.

Creatine boosts power output and helps draw water to your muscles. It can help you gain weight too, but you need to be eating for mass for that to happen well. Look for 5g of creatine mono for a full dose. Some PWOs don’t have creatine, in that case.

The truth is pre-workout supplements can support all fitness levels –from beginner to intermediate to advanced. If you’re looking for energy, endurance, or cognitive focus for physical or mental performance, then you could benefit from pre-workouts. Let’s take a look at the top clinically proven ingredients that should be in your pre-workout formula if you are looking to dominant the weight room. ALPHA GPC More commonly known to be beneficial in treating illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, and stroke, this precursor to the neurotransmitter acetylcholine is making headlines in the supplement industry.

For starters, each and every pre-workout you take should include a nutrition facts label and a list of ingredients (and if it doesn’t, definitely don’t take it). Most all food and supplement companies are required to label their products with detailed information regarding the ingredients used to make them. A pre-workout should leave you energized even at the end of your workout. Ingredients you should look for in a pre-workout should include some or all of the following: Branched Chain Amino Acids Any good pre-workout should contain a combination of BCAA’s, these include L-Leucine, Isoleucine, Taurine, L-Valine. Check your current pre-workout If it includes Acesulfame Potassium, Aspartame, and/or Sucralose, or food dyes like FD&C Red Lake #40, FD&C Blue Lake #1, or FD&C Yellow #5 it’s important to understand that there are healthier alternatives available!

However, some pre-workout supplements do contain testosterone-boosting ingredients like Tribulus, fenugreek, and D-aspartic acid. So look for a pre-workout supplement, like IdealLean, that doesn’t contain these added ingredients. 2. Pre-workout will make it harder for me to sleep at night.

  • Is this video Sponsored by bodybuilding.com? 5 min research will tell you that you get plenty BCAA’s from any normal protein based diet.
    Most protein rich foods have quite a high percentage (15-25%) of BCAAs already..so please stop with the bullshit.

    Beta-alanine, citrulline malate, creatine and a cup of coffee and you got the best pre-workout (pretty cheap ingredients also). And if you are affraid you do not absorb the creatine just take it after some food(or add some sugar to the mix) to elevate your insuline levels…issue solved.

  • Hey Jim or community on this thread… can you speak more about Betaine… are we looking for HCL or TGM also what is the daily gram count you suggest?

  • Creatine, Beat Alanine and Green tea will set you up the rest is just Jim bamboozling you with molecule structures and amino acid sports science waffle to get you to buy shit. You can just take creatine after a meal to get your insulin kick you dont need a specific amino or to take it before a workout specifically. The king of nitric oxide boosters is not an amino acid it is Viagra and Cialis but Jim can’t advocate that here he would get spanked.

  • Caffeine, Beta Alanine and Citrulline are the essentials Creatine is a bonus if your pre-workout has it. BCAAs are a bunch of bullshit

  • This guy owns a company that sells BCAAs. Of course he’s going to say EVERYONE should be consuming them so he can make more profits. Recent studies show otherwise…

  • Those are must haves, however when eating right BCAA aren’t really essential. I switched to EAAs and I’m not as sore as I used to be. I take it 30 minutes into training.

  • Hey Jim! Ive done a lot of research into BCAAs and a lot of research is showing that with the presence of EAAs, it is physiologically impossible for BCAAs to increase the rate of protein synthesis due to the varying absorption rates of the essential amminos. A lot of doctors call it the greatest scam in the supplement industry. Can you weigh in on that?

  • I spent a lot of money on PreJym…one of the worst pre workouts I’ve tried. Over priced and actually made me want to go to sleep and generally made me feel uneasy.

  • What a bunch of shit. Scamming fuck. Nobody needs any of these fart powders or any kind of a “pre workout”. Just eat fucking food.

  • Nice information… Many people in comments are saying these supplimenets are not required. But in my experience, They work. But prerequisite is, you should push yourself hard enough to see if these supplimenets are making any real difference. If you are not challenging yourself, these supplements are good for nothing.

  • Betaine Industry Present Scenario and the Growth Prospects with Forecast 2024

    Get free sample report here: https://bit.ly/2Q6P9Xf

    Humans may obtain betaine from foods rich in betaine or choline or by oral supplements contained with pure preparations. The main sources of betaine in human nutrition are wheat bran, wheat germ, and spinach.

  • I have honestly noticed drinking alcohol before a workout to get me just as hyped than pre-workout. Don’t get drunk of course but enough to get you a little tipsy… I don’t like how pre-workout makes me feel and it distracts me during my workout.

  • Lol studies have shown that L-Citrulline by itself has better benefits than the malate combo. Citrulline Malate is cheaper so its ideal for you, is it? Also Creatine Magnesium Chelate is the best absorbing and best used creatine on the market. Beta Alanine is good, every pre workout should have it alongside betaine, as for BCAA goes, just eat something before a workout and you will be good.
    Also Mr. Ph.D answer why do you put Dairy Creamer in your supps? Thats the worst you can do.
    Jym supps are just marketing BS, guy with phd makes pre workout…
    Geez sell that shit somewhere else and the best pre workout is by Rich Piana either KILL IT or 5150.
    Cant go wrong with em.

  • This guy is a moron. Why would you want to decrease serotonin levels. Serotonin literally contributes to appetite suppressant, increase performance, helps regulate sleep; etc. Stopped listening. http://www.progressivehealth.com/low-serotonin-symptoms.htm?utm_expid=4620948-113.vt7WHEjTQxGazbSLk8DYXw.0&utm_referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F

  • I think citruline malate and beta alanine are the most important of them all. Creatine must be cycled and I believe it can be hard on the liver, and beta alanine provides a very similar function without cycling. I also use beetroot powder for nitric oxide boost, it’s incredible. Eating organic beets pre workout is especially potent from my experience.

  • Guys dont take this stupid supplements…there r not worth ur time n money.
    Best is to stick to natural food.
    Have sweet potatao before ur workout n u will be good to go.

  • You must have amino acids, fats, and carbs that come from food. You need energy which you can get food, how much energy do you need to generate for a good workout, is all relative person to person. Taking a preworkout drink can help, but its not the most critical answer to exercising well.

  • BCAAs are waste of money. I never seen much difference using them. If you have proper diet, you don´t need them. Citruline and creatine works pretty good for me though.

  • So basically it boosts energy and stamina and helps your muscles grow back faster

    If you combo it with protein powder I assume that’d be even better

  • If it weren’t for the glasses I wouldn’t think you had a PHD �� I take pre Jym and it’s really good. I took the Jym fish oil and for some reason my body started to break out in hives or what looked like ring worms. I stopped taking it for a week and it went away. I love all your products but will definitely not be taking your fish oils.

  • What about Agmatine Sulfate and L-Norvaline to help keep a pump and slow the intake of Citrulline which converts to Arginine and the becomes NO in the blood stream? Does that really work?

  • So basically instead of using cheap sources of energy like rice, pasta, potatoes, beans, bananas etc. you suggest wasting it on expensive BCAA as a energy source!? That’s nuts.

  • Although in terms of ingredient quantity the ratio means shit.

    Say you the ratio you need is 2:1:1….thats fine, but supplement companies sell you the correct ratio of the right ingredients….just NEVER the right quantity. When looking for BCAA’s you need to ensure the individual quantities of Leucine, Iso-Leucine & Valine are achieved Effective dosages are 3-6g, 1.5-3g 1.5-3g respectively e.g.

    I can give you a Bcaa Powder, Guarantee a 2:1:1 Ratio and I can still stick to that word by unscrupulously only giving you 500mg Leucine, 250mg Iso-Leucine & Valine….all underdosed but correct in ratio.

    What you need is a well dosed BCAA: no less than 3000mg Leucine, 1500mg Iso-Leucine & Valine.

    Even better if you can get 6000mg/3000mg/3000mg etc.

  • Jim I love the video but I have a question about the BCAA’s.. what about working out fasted? You put out a video before saying BCAA’s will break the fasted state. What’s the best strategy for this? Thanks

  • Thanks for such important info sir i ve been studying bout these supplements from last 2 yrs but u the best guide i can get info from. Much respect for you sir

  • if I take 7 days off of my pre-workout, what effect will that have on my creatine intake. will I still benefit or will I have to take it for a few more weeks before it’s starts giving me benefits again.

  • I don’t think pre workout works for me I’ve tried several and I get more or less the same bad effects 1 I start getting really anxious that alone is enough not to take it 2nd I get itchy all across my neck back and face I really don’t feel any better or pumped and a quarter into my workout I have to take the fattest shit it probably takes 15 mins of my gym time�� that shit is like Crack

  • I have a major objection in combination of bcaa, beta alanine and Citrulline malate in terms of tremendous lowering of blood pressure, to the point where with added caffeine I would nearlyy collapse, not to mention that this combination until I narrowed the cause to bcaa and Citrulline malate was knocking out for me. The best preworkout I made over the years out of medical grade bulk components is: Carnosine beta alanine 4 g, vitamin b6 and B12, histidine, l carnitine l tartrate or acetyl 1g, q10 30mg. With this preworkout I guarantee you personally a workout you need recovery from. After workout I take bcaa to replenish. Never had doms in years, and every workout is Max.

  • Thank you for the sound advice. I have always been very fearful to add this to my body and what you said makes sense in the simplest terms.

  • Can be found in your food, but you’d have to eat a LOT to achieve the same amount that’s already in pre-workout. Plus, taking right before a workout helps with energy and motivation, giving you a much stronger and more effective workout.

  • iv’e been buying the raw ingredients and making my own this will save me the trouble now i just have to wait til it ships, damn man i want to try it now lol

  • Every time I take a pre-workout product it makes me so full that I can’t work out well. And while I work out I can’t drink water because I feel so full. What can I do about this?

  • When taking a BCAA what’s the pros/cons whether your taking the serving size pre/intra workout or say with a gallon of water and drinking through the day?

  • I love betain I knew it before you had your brand, I really think you should put more, but you are almost the only company that haves it. Good job!

  • Question. I often do cardio for about an hour after lifting. Would I want to use Post Jym before cardio or after the cardio to properly feed my muscles?

  • I was looking about how expensive Pre Jym but then I realized that I wouldn’t have to buy a BCAA and a Creatine if I bought pre Jym
    I will have to try it out

  • i’m a big fan of jym products..

    high quality and good taste and very huge pump.. I advise all my friend to try jym products

    from Saudi Arabia

  • I can’t stand Rob Bailey & his garbage ass “music” the guy has absolutely no talent whatsoever in the studio he screams over ppls instrumentals & says FU*K every other word lol but u guys are awesome just found your channel pretty interesting

  • I’ve recently been researching some pre-workout and creatine. This video has helped me allot in what I now know about pre-workout! Thank you guys

  • #bruh….. lol revealing some scammers at the beginning:D:P
    Preworkout = the one steroid that doesnt work on me ( no matter the brand ):V:P
    Beta-Alanine is the one thing that works like crazy on me!!:D ( but only if it is 5mg not less:/ )
    and Josh you are not my mother, but trust me, I can take caffeine at night and then go sleep like a baby:P

  • I lift at 5am. I’m very hesitant to take anything too serious that early and on an empty stomach. I drink a protein shake during workout. Any advice?

  • JUNKIE PHYSIQUE CAMEO <3

    Really well made video. This new emphasis on informative video is great, I’m sure a lot of people are benefiting from this and the good thing is that they will pass it around if they enjoy it and share it with friends. Well done bros

  • great video guys, closest thing i get to a per workout is a sugar free monster. I have never felt the need to use one. great video tho guys, nice to get some good solid info out there

  • Thanks for throwing me in the vid’s lads!LMAO.I admit I am a stim junkie…but after reading some blends are fucked and can restrict the pump I’m being more cautious which ones to buy.Great vid and top info!!

  • So dang true about the value. I mean if your not getting much out of it but the servings are high and the price is low that doesnt mean its the best value cause like you said not many people seem to work look at the ingredients. believe ne i worked for a supp company before haha

  • I don’t know about y’all but, if he has a PhD then he should know that if your body doesn’t make enough of something, then there’s a reason for that. He should be advising folks on making better choices in our diets that improve “gainz “

  • Pardon my bad english pls

    Your other videos are much better and informativ.
    Like your argument that you get whats inside a booster out of your daily food. Such a false statement.
    A regular (good) pump booster for example has about 6 grams of Arginine and 7 grams of Citruline. Well have fun eating 5 Kilogramms of meat/watermelon to get that needed amount of of the two.
    To get a good pump you just have to consume amounts of these aminoacids shortly before the training that you simply could not get them though your food.

  • I don’t know anything technical about it. I just know that pre workout take a little more than 45 minutes to kick in. And if i run after taking it, i get stupid aggressive. I no shit start biting at the air uncontrollably and i start looking around like a dope fiend. It’s hilarious honesty. I didn’t actually know i was doing it until my buddy showed me a video he took of me����������

  • An extra benefit to pre workout is it helps you to add an extra ritual that keeps you fit. You associate your pre workout with going to the gym. So it’s easier to go to the gym. You wake up in the morning and take pre workout and boom. You’ve placed in concrete the fact that your going to go lift.

  • All preworkout is a waste without steroids, test-e and small balls make your dick look bigger ���� it’s all in the recovery tho ✨✨✨

  • Amino acids were my gateway. Take some bcaa’s with creatine with a good ol dab and im going crazy in the gym. Going to order some ore workut from ryse today

  • I have a question. Never ever any pre worked for me, unless I did like ten scoops.. (almost died and I felt it AFTER my workout…shit). Anyway, that’s why I bought powdered caffeine. You should take 200-300mg as label says, but it does nothing to me. Even on empty stomach. Just awful taste and if I do 600-800mg only sweat cones lol. Once I did 350mg and didn’t go to the gym, because I was too tired. Came home and I fell asleep like in an hour…. Wtf… And mind you, I drink only water and never did any stimulants, just tried once in a while… Why I can fall asleep like nothing?

  • In my opinion the answer to this question is always no. Pre-workout will do more harm than good in the long term. Plus, the body builds up a tolerance fairly quickly, not just to caffeine but many of the other ingredients. At that point you just have to keep taking it to have any energy at all.

  • I agree with you on certain substances being “questionable” but I think others are very beneficial. Pre workouts have moved to focus more on mood elevation, nootropics and general health lately. I love ingredients such as Lion’s Mane, Alpha GPC and Ashwagandha.

    Things like Alpha Yohimbine, Ephedrine, DMHA, DMAA etc I would never touch. If you want a cracked out feeling, fair enough, but they should not be included in a pre workout. Energy can come from a pre workout but motivation and consistency need to come from the individual.

  • All preworkout is a waste without steroids, test-e and small balls make your dick look bigger ���� it’s all in the recovery tho ✨✨✨

  • I prefer keeping it Basic.
    Creatine + Whey protein.
    Sometimes Pea protein.
    It’s better to take real food for pre workout.
    Other than Caffeine and creatine All other compounds and chemicals are just Placebos plus Added sugar.

  • I don’t think pre workout works for me I’ve tried several and I get more or less the same bad effects 1 I start getting really anxious that alone is enough not to take it 2nd I get itchy all across my neck back and face I really don’t feel any better or pumped and a quarter into my workout I have to take the fattest shit it probably takes 15 mins of my gym time�� that shit is like Crack

  • Tried PWO for the first time today. In the past i have taking coffine+kreatine as a diy “pwo”. Did not think it would be effective, but mai gad, fellt like cocaine my fellas.. My brain was like bom boak bomka laka bomka ka ka laka

  • So basically it boosts energy and stamina and helps your muscles grow back faster

    If you combo it with protein powder I assume that’d be even better

  • Lit is still my favorite. Plus I’m addicted to amazon

    https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01N0S6IT7/ref=as_li_qf_asin_il_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=pearcec2-20&creative=9325&linkCode=as2&creativeASIN=B01N0S6IT7&linkId=696049c83023c8fbc3849b6219e6bd1f

  • Even expensive preworkout is cheaper than buying coffee. I’ve never had a good enough boost from instant coffee. Even if I had an espresso machine at home I got to the gym straight after work so would be a bother. I think it’s best to look for preworks with 2 different types of caffeine in it

  • Yes, pre workout is great! I got some watermelon flavored stuff from walmart it’s a little chalky but I like chalky anyways and it literally makes me feel like I’m on cocaine(people have described it to me) and yes it makes me tingle. A lot. My friend did not tingle.

  • I’ve been using creatine powder for years I’ve been using six star creatine powder it does keep me up before and after my workouts and I’ve took it on days that I don’t work out I get at least 8 hours of energy from two scoops drinking is 16 to 20 oz glass using a blender bottle

  • he only takes 4 LOOOOL i take 8!!! Olimp Redshit… it’s so fucking weak.. have to take freaking 10 scoops…. 1k Caffine! yeah bitch!

    Edit: if you guys didn’t know 1k caffine is = 100mg DMHA IT’S PERFECTLY FINE!

  • Glutamine does help.
    Creatine is really hard to get from just eating food, that’s why we supplement it.

    There is no way you can get enough arginine and citrulline from food sources, you would have to eat so much foods rich with them and nobody does that.

  • Amino1 should be taken intra-workout brother… The hit up some creatine + whey protein + dextrose post-workout for maximum recovery.

    MJ

  • Great explanation.
    A full pre workout like assault contains creatine, BCAA’s and other essential ingredients.
    However, quick question. If I took Assault before and Amino 1 straight after workouts should I notice/feel any difference in gains and overall recovery?
    Or better off going for a straight creatine supplement?

  • Years ago I would buy a different preworkout every so often and I would consolidate it with the rest of whatever I had before. So after awhile I had a concoction of like 7 different preworkouts mixed together. And of course I always kept the biggest scoop. One day I took a couple big scoops and my heart felt really weird. Almost like a liquidy feeling. It scared the shit out of me.

  • Dude, really? I know this is supposed to be a satirical joke, but he’s got a Budweiser over there. Some teenager could see this and actually try to drink a Budweiser. You really should be ashamed of yourself…because everyone knows it should be a Sam Adams there.

  • Once took two and a half scoops of three different pre workouts and half of an energy drink and I was sweating before even starting my workout and it was very difficult to breathe. Still killed them deadlifts tho lol.

  • Glutamine does help.
    Creatine is really hard to get from just eating food, that’s why we supplement it.

    There is no way you can get enough arginine and citrulline from food sources, you would have to eat so much foods rich with them and nobody does that.

  • Fuck the pre. I just jack off Great Whites and inject that shit directly into my arteries. Massive fucking gains, bro. If it works, why stop?

  • lmfao 1:3 dimeth was in a preworkout I tried once. I was sitting on a bench struggling to breathe and I thought I was having a heart attack

  • doms not wrong first time i took pre workout was when i was playing football and i would train in the gym we had daily and one guy had these pre workout sups and offered me one because i was being a bitch about only sleeping 2 hours

    ended up fucking cranking out the best workout i had to date and the almighty lord himself came down from the heavens and we fucked a dinosaur together while curling 100kgs

  • If all you muscle Gurus would wash your mouth with some green liquid soap we could glean something from your silver coated tongues of wisdom. Otherwise I can just take a circus peanut before pumping iron it will give me the same effect. Lets save some big bucks here dudes.

  • Can be found in your food, but you’d have to eat a LOT to achieve the same amount that’s already in pre-workout. Plus, taking right before a workout helps with energy and motivation, giving you a much stronger and more effective workout.

  • Great video! At current we’re using nonfictionfit.com freshly roasted coffee pre-workout! Would love to know your thoughts on natural ones also:)

  • Crap… looking at my pre-workout, it has a “pre-workout formula” (15,602mg)… oh well, it is pretty good. but what are your thoughts of B-NOX BetanCourt Testosterone Igniter (Fruit Punch)? Its what I use.

  • Hey Jim or community on this thread… can you speak more about Betaine… are we looking for HCL or TGM also what is the daily gram count you suggest?

  • Creatine, Beat Alanine and Green tea will set you up the rest is just Jim bamboozling you with molecule structures and amino acid sports science waffle to get you to buy shit. You can just take creatine after a meal to get your insulin kick you dont need a specific amino or to take it before a workout specifically. The king of nitric oxide boosters is not an amino acid it is Viagra and Cialis but Jim can’t advocate that here he would get spanked.

  • Caffeine, Beta Alanine and Citrulline are the essentials Creatine is a bonus if your pre-workout has it. BCAAs are a bunch of bullshit

  • This guy owns a company that sells BCAAs. Of course he’s going to say EVERYONE should be consuming them so he can make more profits. Recent studies show otherwise…

  • Those are must haves, however when eating right BCAA aren’t really essential. I switched to EAAs and I’m not as sore as I used to be. I take it 30 minutes into training.
