So lately I've been on the prowl for supplements.
I'm looking into pre workout supplements and I've been cycling E/C stack for a while, but with my current schedule I'm not going to be able to do that anymore.
Mainly, I've been looking for a new pre workout sup and been constantly looking at the M&S deal of the day. Sorely upset that I missed my chance and the Universal Animal Rage.
However, if anyone else knows where I can find a good pre workout sup for a fair/cheap price, please let me know. I am a college student who's supporting himself on a budget.
I'm looking at K-Otic, but not sure what it's like. I'm going to call in for a free sample, but sooner the better.
Has anyone ever tried making their own?
If anyone also has information for fish oil and multivitamin I'd be entirely grateful.

I was very pleased with K-Otic, the taste was its only downfall but if your in it for taste then drink a milkshake lol. Anyways I heard they are releasing new flavors, should be great. I liked it, it was consistent & I definitely notice a difference lifting with out it.

K-otic has about 300mg of caffine, it seems pretty cool and i wanted to try it to but i know a lot of guys logged it here and i dont want a sales pitch. I like the amped cracked out feeling except for 1 mr...the crash is to much. Pre surge unleashed looks pretty good and so does quake 10.0 looks hella strong

I have made my own pre. Bought bulk BCAA, Glutamine, L-Arginine, Beta-Alanine and Creatine and then some kind of kool-aide like flavor packets. Arginine has a strong fishy taste, so I now use the tablets, but powder everything else. A tsp is about 5g. So, 2 tsp of BCAA, 1 tsp each of the others, one flavor packet. If you want caffeine, find a powdered energy drink like Deton8 (sold at Kroger). Upfront cost is more than buying K-Otic or Jack3d, but the cost per serving is better overall. I compared my mix to jack3d and the upfront cost per serving was close, but I got 150 servings to Jack's 30.
That said, a pre-made is soooo much easier. The question, that is still in debate, is are they necessary? I have tried numerous and can take or leave them. Love the focus I have with K-Otic, hate the taste. Jack3d made me jittery. Superpump sent me to the head within minutes. Waiting for my Beta-Cret to arrive so that I can give it a try. I would advise trying to pick up some samples and give them a try. Everyone is different.

But now I have Rage. Animal Rage. This stuff is awesome, plain and simple. Taste isn't good at all, but it's made to be a 4oz shot..just slam it back and wash it down with something else if you want to..
