L1guy I get your point and to be fair you are correct. Caffeine and glutamine can lead to upset stomachs if done directly pre work out.
If done are regular intervals around the day its not a problem though.
I will conceed the fact that I was thinking about lifting when I wrote my answer but my stomach doesnt get upset so pre mma (1 hour before) I do like glutamine, whey protein and a caffeine tablet 15 min before mma.
As for creatine, yeh people generally cycle creatine for creatine saturation. I personally am a bit lazy so I don't do loading phases just gradual saturation and washout phases.

I just shake it. The trick to getting the consistency right is to be on such a low calorie/low carb diet that even if it's watery it tastes like ambrosia.
Usually I go 1 cup no fat milk, 3-4 tablespoons of low fat yoghurt (less thick is better) and a squirt of honey for taste. I add in heaps of ice which partially dissolves in the hour before i get there and shake the crap out of it before drinking.
It's a cheap mans peri-post workout drink which tastes good and comes in a similar ratio of protein to carbs as the popular ones on the market. When I'm fight training and cutting it makes for an incredible improvement during the next workout."Boxing is the art of hitting an opponent from the furthest distance away, exposing the least amount of your body while getting into position to punch with maximum leverage and not getting hit."
