My back literally just “WENT” again just before i stepped out towards the gym. Exactly the same pain as what happened 4 weeks ago. LIVID doesn’t even describe it. This week I was eager to train with no hiccups. Note to self, don’t stretch the back too much when its healing….live and learn.
Been a while since I’ve wrote an article as I’ve really not had much knowledge to share with you all at the moment. However I feel that this will be pretty important to some of you pre-workout junkies out there, (including me!!)
Now with the whole “DMAA” ingredient pretty much excluded and banned from most pre-workout supplements, i was pretty stuck for one that would do the job without the “DMAA” ingredient.
I’ll jump right in there. At the moment the preworkout i’m using is C4 - Extreme by Cellucor. Now I bought this by accident thinking the seller had stocked some old C4 with DMAA still inside but when i looked at the ingredients it wasn’t there. At this point i thought…wow…I’ve wasted money on two tubs.
I gave the C4 Extreme a try on its own with two scoops. Generally kept me going consistent throughout my entire workout, but it certainly wasn’t no original jack3D that’s for sure! I was a bit bummed, but i thought its better than nothing.
Then this is where i hit the jackpot. I found some CELLMASS by BSN really cheap at my local vitamin store. It was running out of date by a month but to be honest, supplements, as long as they are kept in a cool dry place out of light, they last another 6-12 months from the best before date.
So I took the CELLMASS which is generally a Creatine with added amino’s and Beta Alanine. Some people hate Beta Alanine because of the tingling effect it gives you through your body…. but i think its actually not a bad addition.
So two scoops of CELLMASS, with 2 scoops of C4 - Extreme and …BOOOOM!!! Holy Crap, what a result!! Energy levels gradually crept higher and higher and withing 10 mins of taking both supplements i was ready to train! Been on both now every time before I train and the effect hasn’t wore off one tiny bit!
With this combination, I’ve found your sessions are consistent, you don’t feel like you have any “off” days at the gym. Your strong as hell and am pushing out way more reps on the heavier weight which is fantastic.
So my advice is, if you’re after a good pre-workout supplement without the DMAA inside, get your hands on C4 - Extreme and CELLMASS from BSN, Is such a great combination and i’ll be running this stack for quite a while!
