You’re not missing out. Grab some of these and a multivitamin and you’re getting better for WAY cheaper.
Blows my mind that somebody would pay like a dollar a pill for 150mg of caffeine and a few vitamins
Why are you asking about caffeine pills on a coffee subreddit?
I already told you: [link]
EDIT: However, caffeine pills won't do anything for you unless you take enough to kill a horse, considering a pentashot from Starbucks didn't do anything for you... do they ever serve that? Seems unlikely. Perhaps you should try cocaine or methamphetamine.
The general consensus is that all preworkouts are basically caffeine plus some other bullshit that doesn't much matter, so use the brand you like best. If cost is an issue, caffeine pills are very cheap.
For me, eating a bunch of carbs after an especially taxing workout gets my mind out of the fog. Additionally, as others have mentioned, caffeine works really well. I dont like drinking a ton of coffee but found these caffeine pills on amazon. They are about $9 and contain 200mg of caffeine (approximately 2 cups of coffee). I take them 20 min before workout and dont need caffeine the rest of the day. I have found this to be the cheapest pre-workout that works for me. Amazon link: [link]
i feel like ur gonna die.
c4 isn't really meant to be used as a general stimulant. I recommend caffeine alone. coffee, red bull or caffeine pills
You can get 100 200mg caffeine capsules for $7.75. No sugar, no calories. That's like 200 cups of coffee.
I've been taking 2 pills on my drive to the gym now for about 8 months. I take them with a huge thing of water. I love em. Cheap, easy, and effective. This is the brand I've been buying. Prolab , never tried anything other than these.
Very astute! I actually bought these 200 mg pills and just split them in half. I ran the math and it comes out to $0.04 per morning. Beats the shit out of a $4.00 coffee!
especially because you can buy caffeine pills for dirt cheap. this addiction doesn't break the bank!
Caffeine pills. I went this route after switching gym time to 5:45am and not wanting to bother with the making or bringing of coffee at that hour (or the night before). $7 for a bottle of 100 at Amazon. Each one is like 2-3 cups of coffee, so it's economic as well.
I use these: [link]
Pop those suckers and drink a bunch of water immediately upon waking. Makes morning gym very bearable. It also cuts out stomach acidity (empty stomach + coffee + run = sometimes nausea).
The difference being that caffeine is legal while amphetamines are not.
I've never seen someone steal to get their adderall prescription either, in fact those are the kinds of people that enjoy working hard for their money.
If cocaine was legal, there would be millions of Americans enjoying a nice relaxing coca-leaf tea just like you enjoy your coffee and tea.
If caffeine was illegal, people would be smuggling and abusing a similar white powder, the reason it's in a form of a white powder is because having it concentrated minimizes the risk of smuggling in coca leaves.
Every war is a war on people, the war on drugs is a metaphor for a war on the people the establishment finds uncouth. It's the only reason crack and cocaine have such widely different punishments while being functionally the same exact drug, because black people use the former, and white people use the latter.
Whoever is responsible for scheduling these drugs can blow it out their arse. Drug addiction is a medical problem long before it becomes a criminal one, it should be treated in a hospital and not a prison, maybe then people could have some empathy for the struggles of others.
I like the monster rehabs a lot for my morning caffeine burst. like 8g sugar in the whole can, but it doesn't have that nasty fake sugar taste. However recently I quit that and have switched to caffeine pills.
I get these. ProLab 200mg caffeine pills, amazon.com. About as easy as it can get.
Why are you drinking energy drinks? 8 bucks gets you 200 energy drinks worth of caffeine pills, they are fast acting, cheaper, easier to carry, and zero calories. Its the healthier smarter way to go!
I get them from Amazon. I've bought this bottle two times in the last year and It's great.
In terms of the caffeine pills, these are the ones I get.
I usually take them about a half hour before working out. Usually that's enough time to take care of the caffeine-induced deuce. :P
He may have built up a tolerance to it. Depending on how long/how much you've been using, you may have too. Cycle off it for a few weeks, buy a bottle and try it.
hmmm...I usually just buy plain old caffeine pills at 100 per canister. I've ben thinking about doing a caffeine stack. Anybody know how the combination of ingredients listed works for them? Is it overkill?
This wasnt a bodybuilding thread, its a weight loss thread. Creatine isnt for losing weight, and, as you said in the second item, placebo. I didnt only say coffee, you can get caffeine pills for 1/10th the cost of pre-workout.
1 pill is the same amount as the majority of pre workouts.
Caffeine pills are generally the best. Like you, I am not a fan of coffee at all and finding a replacement for that morning soda was a high priority. These are the ones I take:
They have 200mg of caffeine per pill. A generic cup of coffee only has 125-150mg and sodas range from 30-45mg depending on which one. If you're concerned that 200mg is too much, they are easy to cut in half.
Mio Energy was also suggested to me in the past but I have not personally tried it. I used the plain Mio with carbonated water when I first started to both simulate sodas as well as break up the "monotony" of plain water. (Dr Pepper was the hardest thing for me to give up; I leave one in the fridge as a constant reminder these days of my continuing choice to remain on keto)
I use this caffeine and this l-theanine. Couldn't say if they're the best on Amazon, but they work well for me and are well-priced.
On Amazon? It's so cheap. Plus free 2 day shipping if you have prime. I don't know why you'd go anywhere else.
ProLab Caffeine Maximum Potency 200mg Tablets, 100-Count [link]
Gracias, consideraré las Zaat, sólo me pregunto por qué hay cajas de 100 pastillas a 8 dolares en Amazon, pero no encuentro nada similar a ese precio por aquí.
I always had these in my bag just in case
Already posted link yet its probs lost in the comments:
Ya, having bad caffeine pills can be a huge difference. I have tried lots of different brands from in stores, and eventually did some research and ordered them from Amazon since there's a broader selection. I have bought them from Walgreens, food city, and Walmart and was not happy with them, the ones I am using now are from "Prolab" and I have been extremely pleased with them. I get energy from every pill, and I don't get any weird side effects, and unless I take like a ridiculous amount of them, I don't crash or anything. Heres the link:
Would a caffeine supplement be okay? Like this?
Caffeine pills. Or just stop relying on preworkout.
Or any other pill that comes in a bottle? Do you have to carry them individually in your pocket, which is weird in itself.
Yep! Used this brand and they’ve lasted me a while for days where I don’t have coffee available. Amazon approved too
I use these.
If you like that, you'll love $8 for 100 or $18 for 500
8 cents for 200mg
And that was 2 seconds on amazon, I could probably find it for half that
Man, you have to upgrade if you still take the caffeine in liquid form
Caffeine pills - Amazon
Here's some convenience for you:
Cut them in half to get 1 coffee cup worth of caffeine for 5 cents.
I prefer Amazon:
Edit: These are just the first ones that popped up when I searched it. Obviously you can search too and pick your brand/pricing/package color. Whatever does it for you. lol. I bought my creatine thorugh the Bulk Supplements guys and I like it. Mix in this flavorless powder with a half cup of OJ every day. Can't even tell it's in there. I can't vouch for any of there other products, but I would assume they're similar.
pop one of these bad boys about 30 minutes before your workout/run
and caffeine does come in pill form [link]
If you don't want to drink a lot of coffee you can buy a bottle of caffeine pills on amazon for about $8. Each pill is about the same as a cup of coffee.
I'm going to change your life with this post.
you pay 10 (1 pill) cents for 2.5 redbulls.
Yea no problem.
Usually I take c4 but I ran out recently so I'm currently running this stack and it works aweeeesommme. Nice clean energy and no crash.
One caffeine tablet
6 grams of L-citrulline DL Malate 2:1(make sure its this form)
2 grams agmatine sulfate
5 grams beta alanine
The doses of each can be rearranged depending on how much is already in the preworkout you choose. I feel like C4 is a great base and it's cheap as hell from Costco, so I add these in to make it better. If I'm running c4 I don't take the caffeine tablet tho but right now I'm out and I always keep these on hand for convenience, they're cheap as hell and pack a punch
Powder if you can stand the taste, or I use these Prolab tablets sometimes.
I second this, Purchase caffeine pills, cut em in half,they are dirt cheap
IR CAFFEINE PILLS: [link]
XR CAFFEINE PILLS(MY FAV): [link]
The ones I get from amazon are even cheaper. [link]
This is my preworkout.
I have issues with this as well. There are 3 things that help me. (YMMV)
I also have one of these sunrise lamps that I can set to light up my room at a specific time. I use this as well, though I don't think it necessarily helps me wake up. Might help you though. It's damn bright(and the max brightness is adjustable).
Edit: Oh, and another random tip that I actually learned on Reddit. When I end up staying up too late and am only going to get a few hours of sleep, I'll sleep with sweats and socks on (which I don't normally). This makes it so I don't sleep too comfortably and makes it a bit easier to wake up. My body seems to realize that when I wear these, I'm not going to be getting much sleep and it braces me for it. It's definitely crazy, but works for me. If I'm really desparate--like I haven't gotten a good night's sleep in a couple days--I'll sleep on the floor. I find it much easier to wake up from the discomfort of the floor than from my bed.
Caffiene - I get from Amazon
Ephedrine - I use to get from Amazon, but it appears they removed all instances of Ephedrine from their catalog. You can get it from these folks, this is the same exact brand I've been using. It use to be the highest rated one on Amazon.
I take 1 Caffiene and 1 Ephedrine with breakfast and lunch. I skip taking it at dinner because I seem to be more sensitive to the stuff. With just 2 doses I'm awake most of the night.
I've been taking the EC stack for about 2 months now. I cycle it every other week so I don't build up a tolerance. For me it's a very ... interesting experience. I can only handle taking the dosage 2x a day, once in the morning and once at lunch. Even with only the 2 doses I have issues sleeping. It's not unusual for me to lie in bed for 4 hours starting at 9:30pm before falling asleep. Oddly enough, I usually still have enough energy waking up at 4:45am to get up and go to the gym for my workout. During the day I notice an odd sensation that almost feels like levitation. I've also noticed that it's far easier for me to stay attentive and not fall asleep during meetings when I'm taking the EC stack.
As far as weight is concerned, there is an acceleration of weight loss during the week that I'm using the EC stack. It's not huge, but then I'm more at the end of my weight loss goals so every tenth of a pound I lose is a victory.
Ephedrine - Amazon used to carry this brand as that's where I initially purchased it from. But it appears that Amazon no longer carries any ephedra products.
Yeah but they're so expensive. These Pills cost $0.2695 per gram whereas this powder costs $0.0578 per gram. If you're concerned about your nose you could probably still come out cheaper by throwing it in some gelatin capsules.
150 cups worth of caffeine for the price of 2 or 3 Starbux cups
Caffeine pills have too many additives and fillers in my opinion.
Also, it is definitely not cheaper to buy pills.
50 grams of caffeine powder - $5 with shipping
50 grams of caffeine pills - $22.5 with shipping
that is probably true if you have easy access to a walmart outside of a major metro area. but for amazon its a pretty good price - this appears to be the best selling caffeine pill ([link]) and its $7.70 for 100
I you just want caffeine buy this for the price of one coffee at starbucks you get enough to last months.
>In Missouri it's $2.05 for the largest regular coffee.
Alternative to Starbucks regular coffee
What you'll need:
Caffeine pill (100 tabets) $5.59
Cup (set of 5) 3.99
Tastes the same and is much cheaper. Everything is pretty much free except the caffeine pill and those can be bought in bulk.
take one about 30-40 minutes before your workout. It'll get you through everything. and with SS, the 100 count bottle lasts over 30 weeks.
Caffeine has been used for thousands of years as a mental stimulant. So, water and half of one of these comes out to under $0.04.
Try this instead: [link]
Much much cheaper for the same amount of caffeine. And you dont have the sugar crash nor all that other crap they put in it.
