This is pretty much always the best bet. Things like Indigo or Surge Workout Fuel, for example, have been improved and changed since they first appeared, but posts referring to older formulas are still around.
Black coffee, chewing gum, and grit. Grit like willpower, not grit like grits.

Like how close to a workout can I take a Mag-10[/quote]
If you’re using Plazma before and during, you don’t “need” Mag-10 until an hour or so after lifting. But, depending on the workout, you could use Mag-10 instead of Plazma. That works best for intense-but-non-lifting workouts like sprints, hard prowler pushes, interval cardio, etc.
You could in theory have Mag-10 with a meal and you’d still get the high-quality protein, but to maximize the amino pulse, I’d have it an hour or so before eating, so the protein from the meal doesn’t blunt the amino spike.
Debatable. Depends a bit on your overall daily calories and activity. I like a rule of thumb to not eat before two-ish hours before bed, but that’s mostly for digestion and sleep than metabolism. Also, I try to minimize drinking anything too close to bed to try waking up less to pee.
Either way. Mag-10 works great before bed because it can spike blood aminos and compound with the natural hormones released during sleep to help with recovery. But some people like having something more solid, if anything, at night.
Indigo is only taken once a day. If you took it before having Plazma and training, you’re set.
