no, energy drinks are for who don't get to sleep all week and still want to play paintball on the weekends...

 

<RANT>

After 2 kids, a 40+hr/week regular job 10+hours of travel to get to said job, a sideline job to fund the paintball addiction and catering to my Lady i really should be taking a hint from the lord and resting on the 7th day... Instead, i'm at the field playing paintball and chugging rockstars...

</RANT>

 

works for me :)

Energy drinks seem to have no effect on me. I've had plenty, and have tried a variety of them, and I still lack the energy boost that many claim they get from them. I don't drink them often, but when I do, I drink them for the flavor.

i can't stand energy drinks. took a sip of one and hated it. i'd rather drink anti-freeze. only one i could tolerate was rockstar fruit punch or something like that. even then i hated it.

 

for a drink to wake me up, ginger beer is where it's at. chug some of that and feel the burn! none of that sweet Jamaican style crap, gotta be harsh, gotta burn.

Energy drinks are for nubs. L2focus


Caffeine isnt for focus...

 

To be fair caffeine wasn't really designed for anything, it's a CNS stimulant like methylphenidate (ritalin/concerta), though not as strong or long lasting. Both of those drugs are prescribed to people (like myself) with add/adhd. Basically the way they work is that they stimulate your brain and make it easier to focus because your mind isn't all over the place. Methylphenidate, caffeine and even meth all work very similarly. 
interesting stuff really, stimulants help with a lot of bodily problems.

Caffeine and amphetamines dont work the same way at all. Dexedrine releases dopamine while caffeine simply blocks a transmitter or receptor (cant remember which) that creates the feeling of being tired.

The way it was described to me is the amphetamines or methylphenidate in ADD/ADHD meds makes it easier to direct your focus where you want whereas caffeine intensifies your focus but it intensifies your focus on EVERYTHING all at once so it can actually distract you in higher doses.

Yeah until the carbs in your food raise your blood sugar, making your pancreas release Insulin which in turn makes you tired right after lunch in the middle if the day when you need to get work done.

Energy drinks might not actually provide "energy" (other than calories from sugar) but they do keep you awake and alert.

What I've noticed with Gatorade is that there's "symptoms" if you could call it that.

From my personal experience, right after you drink the Gatorade, you need to spit. After a few minutes that feeling goes away and you come across another symptom. This symptom is really really needing to piss. After you either take a leak, or hold in the urge to pee, you get a boost of energy.

This all happens within about 5 minutes though so it's no bad. Anyone else experience these "symptoms"?
