    If you need energy drinks before a workout, you're weakminded.

    j/k, I really don't know the pro/cons but I'm pretty sure you don't need to drink them before each lift. Thats an extra 2 bucks each day you lift man! (thats the way I see it)

    Why not just buy a pre workout energy supp? You'll get the energy minus all the calories from the energy drink. :dunno: carbonated shit makes me feel all kinds of fucked up during a workout, maybe thats just me.

    :rofl: I fucking hate when this happens.

    Some energy drinks cause me to fall asleep within 10 minutes of finishing it though, I've yet to find a decent one

    I don't see anything wrong with drinking energy drinks before your workouts.

    I've drunk some quite a few times before my workouts.
    For me, I just don't want to drink it all the time because it would feel like I dependant on them. Just my opinion.

    I never feel the affects of the those drinks. I once drank like one of those Monster XLs or whatever and took a 4 hour nap right after. lol Take a EC stack if you want to really feel something.
