Citruline malate is not quite as tried and tested as caffeine, however studies do suggest that citruline malate has been shown to support increase performance, blood flow and amino acid delivery during your workouts therefore leading to increased protein synthesis (leading to greater lean mass gains).
I have personally found a noticeable increase in endurance when I use use citruline malate, not to mention a crazy pump.
I recommend adding 6g of citruline malate to our DIY pre-workout supplement.
If you’ve ever taken a pre-workout before you would be well and truly familiar with the ‘tingles’ you get shortly thereafter. These tingles are courtesy of the amino acid, beta alanine.
Beta alanine has proven in numerous studies to support increased endurance during an athlete’s workout.
Beta alanine is quite cheap and I personally love the tingling feeling it provides, however this isn’t for everyone.
I recommend adding 4g of beta alanine to our DIY pre-workout supplement.
