how much is enough Caffeine as a pre-workout

Recommended Posts

Hey all,


Just wanted to know how much caffeine you'd use as a pre or even post workout.


Basically I've been making chewy caffeine + l-theanine candies for focus at work but I've had some feedback that people might like them for exercise. They are however only 20mg each and from what I read 150mg of caffeine is closer to a reasonable dose.


Has anyone experimented with smaller doses of caffeine? would a couple of candies have any real effect? 

I suppose the glucose would help with energy anyway, interested to hear your thoughts. 





P.S. Candies above are 'pina colada ' flavor

LD50 is 12g

What effects do you get from 2g, that seems pretty crazy when a coffee is about 100 - 200mg.  Do you take that much regularly?
