Using Nootropics As A Pre-Workout Stack
So over the past two weeks I've been experimenting with using some of the nootropics I have with a pre-workout drink (White Flood). Before I start talking about my personal experience, I'm going to give my reasoning behind the use of these two Racetams in my workout.
There's been a couple of studies done with Phenylpiracetam where it was shown to help actually increase overall physical stamina and endurance. There has also been a few incidents where Russian professional athletes were disqualified for using performance enhancers, Phenylpiracetam being one of them. I figured that it must have some shred of truth so I decided to order some capsuled Phenylpiracetam for use while doing various workouts (cardio and resistance).
Oxiracetam has had a few studies that showed it to have helped physical loco-motor activities which lead me to believe that in certain resistance training, cardio workouts, and other various activities (skating, biking, and swimming specifically). I ordered two 30 count bottles of Oxiracetam to give it a try.
The first days using them without the white flood I definitely noticed the claims in regards to Phenylpiracetam specifically. I had initially started working out about an hour after taking the nootropics before I went running. I managed to get a few more laps out than normal in the amount of time I had planned on running. I noticed that while I still felt fatigued, I didn't feel quite as fatigued as normally and considering that I managed to get more laps in.
The oxiracetam did seem to help me a bit with loco-motor movement, but it wasn't as strongly pronounced as I would have thought. However over the course of the two weeks I was using it I did notice that my movements were becoming a bit more simpler to do and more fluid.
I'm going to continue using the two in pre-workouts, and if anyone else has done this I'd love to hear how it worked for you and what all you did to help maximize your gains or workout using nootropics. I'll be adding more to this after this third week where I will be using White Flood alongside my stacks.
