    Smile Jack3d?

    Has anyone had any good experience with this product? Is it possible to also take protein with this supplement?

    I loved Jack3d when I was taking it. Watermelon flavor is like nothing else. As Robert said and as their label says, start with low dosages first. It has a fair amount of caffeine and you really need to gauge your reaction to it.

    Good stuff though.

    If it's between those two, I say either one. If you're open to other options, you can have a look at ON's Amino Energy as well. [url]http://www.optimumnutrition.com/products/essential-amino-energy-p-275.html[/url]

    Robertrogo, Did I just read you saying synergism? Ok, just checking.

    "Exactly, it is a great product that will provide great benefits and muscle growth, the thing I like is the energy aspect of it all, especially when you aren't motivated this stuff will provide you with a kick in the ass to get your butt in gear for the workout"-Robertrogo

    First, a pre-workout "pump" supplement WILL NOT give you muscle growth. This is a totally unsupported claim and complete B.S. If I didn't know any better I would say you were sponsored by them. Second, if you don't have enough energy for the gym you’re not eating correctly.

    For a beginner I would recommend saving your hard earned money, instead of wasting it on product that shows no benefit.

    How can you say there's no benefit? Pre-workout supplements from respectable companies provide very beneficial ingredients.

    Glutamine - Boosts GH levels which can lead to greater muscles size and strength. Also shown to help support the immune system
    BCAA - Promotes muscle growth among other things.
    Citrulline Malate - Helps convert lactic acid to energy among other things.
    Caffeine - Alertness, focus, energy

    That's just a few ingredients. I can't say they are all good. I'm sure there's some that are just tubs full of caffeine and junk.

    Sometimes you need an extra boost. I workout at 4am, have a 40+ hours a week job, and a family. There are times that I need help waking up. You could eat perfect and still need a little jump start to get rolling.

    To say there's no benefit from pre-workout supplements isn't correct at all.

    Glutamine and BCAA are found in any protein powder on the market. If your taking a PWO shake your body is already receiving them at the most efficient and beneficial time for your body.

    I’ll ignore your comment about Citrulline. A very common amino acid found in the foods you should be eating. I would be more worried filtering the B.S. I’m reading and getting to the truth WAY before I would ever worrying about converting lactic acid into energy. Just more proof that any idiot can read a bottle and believe what they read.

    If you want a pre-workout jolt, buy caffeine pills. 400mg should be more than enough to get you going. You can get a month supply for $4.

    Yet you provide zero references yourself. Of course glutamine and BCAAs are in quality powders. That doesn't mean they need to be excluded from a pre-workout supplement. I don't support trying to get all your nutrients from supplements. You need to the right foods as well. That doesn't mean they are evil though.

    You seem to have some clue about nutrition Then again given there's no progress photos or anything else related to what YOU'RE doing. The only thing we've seen from you here is negative comments on other's posts. It's good to offer criticism and advice, but your delivery method quite frankly sucks.

    I agree jack3d is good. Just watch how much you take.I started running out of energy and getting real sloppy on my last sets. Then I started taking this stuff and was charged up and noticed I was stronger the whole workout. Only take 3 times in a week and you should be safe.

    I think the general opinion (if you haven't made up you mind yet - its been almost a year!) Is that Jack3d is good, BUT its all down to the individual. I have done 1 tub in 7 months. I only use it if the thought of not going to the gym on a gym day creeps into my mind, not because of the ingrediants that help (or not) you gain muscle. Going to the gym and eating properly will do that anyway - to a certain degree.
