Coffee and a good breakfast with a chairlift snack around noon works great for me.

Because of some odd loopholes energy drinks are very loosely regulated by the FDA. Stay away, they are poison.

Snowboarding Is...

That thing I do to escape the world and have fun with my friends

I like to lift so i have taken an assortment of pwo supplements. I dont think i would really like to take any of them before riding. I stay away from the ones that are heavy in stimulants. The can be really bad on your heart. Like Nivek said all the gotta do is put an * next to shit and they can pretty much say what they want. I know one of the pwo had what was called dmaa in it which has been linked to a couple deaths in the military. Not saying there werent other underlying issues. Just do your research and be very wary of what you put in your body. I like to eat fruit before i ride then the adrenaline and beers keep me going.

I just rail a fucking fat ass gator tail of blow that would make Pablo Escobar blush. I do this twice per run.

Water and beer are my only supplements. One to hydrate , one to relax, a perfect mixture for me.

I stay away from energy drinks and the like. It's bad stuff. The only thing I take before and during riding is plenty of water and some strategically timed Sport Legs and ibuprofen.

Caffeine is enough for me. I know its not great to feel you "need" but its part ritual at this point. During the work week I get away with a cup or two in the morning, not one of those all day coffee drinkers. And it has to be good coffee.. I prefer my own and make it with a french press and drink it black.

I really only drink water or seltzer (outside of beer/wine)... and have gotten much better about hydrating during the activities. Also have some new bars I like.. they are baked, wheat free, lots of fiber and decent amount of protein.

I completely forgot, I used to take these chews/drinks. I. Sure you guys might have heard of it, but the company is called FRS. They use natural antioxidants as a fuel source. So its basically healthy energy. Pretty good stuff and its heavily endorsed by a lot of huge popular athletes. Can be expensive, but I wait for the many awesome sales they have, like when they have a 50% off and free shipping promotion. They even have a free sampler package, you jusy pay shipping:
