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?

Preworkouts do contain other beneficial ingredients that will help with endurance, pump, and focus. Many of them do contain creatine that doesn't really have to be used preworkout. If one doesn't a tub can be picked up for cheap with. I don't pay for preworkouts anymore but felt they are worth it when I did. We have a buy 2 for $40 deal on VaporX5 going on now. The link is in my signature if you are interested.
