It seems that my body has become so accustomed to Jack3d that I need to take 3 to even 4 scoops to even get a kick from it. Does anyone reccommend a different pre-workout supplement, maybe something with a little more kick? Thanks.

I'd say avoid workout "supplements" all together. Besides, on Jack3d's own website, it says to "Use With Caution Under Strict Dosing Protocols." I'm pretty sure more than one scoop is moving past that. What you're experiencing is similar to drug addicts who have to keep using more and more each time because their receptors are growing accustomed to the dosage.

Don't worry about supplements, just workout and keep a strict healthy diet and that will be plenty fine. We've survived and been healthy for thousands of years without supplements by getting everything we need from our food and environment. So why change it now, when we obviously don't need supplements?

<br><br>1. Your supposed to cycle jack3d. 1 month on two weeks off<br><br>2. Your body has become accustomed to caffeine (because you failed to read the label and follow directions)

Due to extreme potency, it's highly recommended to assess tolerance by using a 1.5 scoop serving before consuming full dose, especially if you are sensitive to stimulants. Some individuals may find 1, 1.5 or 2 scoops per serving is the ideal dose for workout domination. DO NOT EXCEED 3 SCOOPS IN ANY 24 HOUR PERIOD</span>

holy shit, yea dood you're building up a tolerance to the caffeine

not good


Slowly wean yourself off of it, I wouldn't go cold turkey because you'll probably suffer withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, headaches, etc


I would go natural for a few weeks to cycle off it. Let your body get accustomed to not having the caffeine hit, then if you desire cycle back on it. Just because caffeine is an "over the counter" drug, doesn't mean that it can't screw you up pretty bad if abused. At this point, if you're taking 3+ scoops of it, that's borderline abuse.



Get off it, see how your body adjusts going natural, and go from there.

Thanks for all the advice guys. I'm going to stay off the supplements for a good few weeks and see how that goes; After all, I'm looking to improve my health, not endanger it. Thanks again!

Don't take any supps then. Protien powder and creatine are the only things I'll ever recommend to people.

personaly, i have no issue with using preworkout sups. If you use them like it says, you're going to be fine. As far as jack3d is concerned, i have used it in the past, and will use it in the future, it's a great preworkout and is cheap. Right now, i'm using 1MR (one more rep) and it's a kick in the ass before hitting the gym. Jack3d is great, but it's not the only thing you need to take if you're trying to lean up, drop bad lbs / gain good lbs. You should take some monohydrate creatine (up to 20grams a day) and if i remember correctly, jack3d has around 5 grams in it. You should also be drinking close to a 1-1.5+ gallons of water daily depending on your current body weight to keep your system flushed and clean. The most important thing about fitness is nutrition, just ask anyone who takes it seriously. You work much harder outside the gym than you do inside it. (that dosnt' mean to be a nancy in the gym!) Clean up your diet, eat lots of protein (chicken gets boring, eat some tuna and other meats, dont burn yourself out!) and stick with it! Hit all your muscle groups, most people don't do legs, but Squats are natures steroids, they're a MUST.

Sups to avoide are things like fat burners, and "stacks," you dont need anything along those lines. They will put some mass on you, but generally it isn't maintained after you run out of the product, and is a lot of "bad" mass and do more harm to your system then good.

Pre workout sups are crap in my opinion. When it actually matters (in a fight for instance) are you going to tell the guy, hold on. Let me take my supps then wait 30 minutes. Ok, now we can fight.

I find jack3d tends to "over-caffiene" me, even with one scoop. I feel twitchy and nervous.

I definitely like DS Craze, except it makes my mouth EXTREMELY dry when I'm working out. Less of a caffeine hit, more of a "focus". I don't use more than 2 or 3 scoops per week, just when I'm short on sleep or really light from cutting out carbs that day.


It also doesn't "crash" me later on the day like jack3d does.

Definitely dont cold turkey. Wean yourself off. I dont take anything other than a healthy diet. If theres even the chance for a substance dependance issue i dont want it. Thats why i generally shy away from unnecessary medicines as well. If you dont have the energy to work out, you need to be eating better. Also, caffeine's main effect isnt in giving you energy, just in inhibiting the sensors that tell your body you're tired. Thats why there is sometimes a crash, there is backup of the chemical that does tell you youre tired.

Overall, i would recommend laying off supplements altogether. The only one i would consider is a natural protein supplement after the workout if youre really trying to build muscle mass for a weight-driven sport. Otherwise, youre just adding more mass for your body to move. True athleticism comes from having a high strength/mass ratio. If you build muscle mass as you build muscle strength, you dont gain anything. Years ago, i used to take protein and do full-out strength training. I weighed 170 pounds (a gain of 20 punds in the 5 months i started working out) and could lat pulldown 230. However, i could only do 6-7 pull ups. I stopped doing strength training and moved on to purely bodyweight exercises. Now i weigh 175 am much more cut, and can hit 25+ pull ups. If you need mass and pure strength, then protein and high weight low rep is for you. If not, i highly recommend bodyweight exercises.

You know Jack3d can cause ED in some people Posted Image

The 1-3 dimethylamylamine does it.

honeslt, if caffiene wasnt so ingrained into everyday society, it would be considered an illegal substance and it would be controlled. hell caffiene can be as hard to quit as smoking lol
edit: also, if you actually stop taking caffiene, you might feel shitty for a week or two, but you'll find yourself feeling way better then when you didnt drink it. ask anyone who has been drinking coffee and stopped and i bet they will tell you that. caffiene is a drug your body will crave and will make you feel un-normal when you do not have it.

try it, quit it for a month and see how you feel. caffiene isnt something you need and therefore it's a crutch. if you started to think of caffiene as a weakness you will start to develop an ill feeling for it and i would place a sum of money that you will feel better than you ever had taking that shit on a regular basis.

The point that I was making was that in a situation where physical effort comes into play. You won't have time to use them. Better to train without them in my opinion.

if you come across a threatening situation in real life your body makes its own pre workout. it's called adrenaline. doing squats and military press in the gym isn't enough to cause a release of a natural stimulant like that.

if you're working out why wouldn't you take advantage of a pws? increased blood flow equals a better pump and more nutrients delivered to the muscles. along with increased focus and energy. i see no downside to them.
