Ya I add BCAA's the odd time . . .I was given a big bag of those for free.
It is very very cost effective. About a third of the price of the over the counter powders.
And I can add and subtract bits depending on how I want.
If Im a bit weak and want to do a max effort session I can add more caffeine. If its late when I get to train and I want to sleep not long after I can leave out the caffeine. etc etc
If im getting used to it I can increase individual ingredients a small bit one by one etc.
I actually dont use it too often though . . .exactly because the body becomes used to it.
A cup of black coffee and a banana works wonders for me pre workout
