Pre-Workout and Stribild
« on: January 30, 2015, 08:05:06 PM »
I'm on Stribild and tolerating it extremely well. Undetectable for a long time now and CD4 count is 1057. As an avid weightlifter and aspiring physique competitor I spend a lot of time each week in the gym. Taking creatine and glutamine right now. No problems with them. My doc knows and is monitoring my urine for kidney function instead of just relying on the creatinine blood levels.

My question: is there any ingredient in ON Gold Standard Pre-Workout that would interact with my Stribild or its efficiency at keeping my VL undetectable?  I have pasted the ingredient label below:

Total Carbohydrate   1 g   1%
Vitamin D (as Cholecalciferol)   500 IU   125%

Niacin (as Nicotinic Acid)   20 mg   100%
Vitamin B6 (as Pyridoxine HCl)   2 mg   100%
Folic Acid   200 mcg   50%
Vitamin B12 (as Cyanocobalamin)   10 mcg   167%
Pantothenic Acid (as D-Calcium Pantothenate)   10 mg   100%
Muscle Matrix   
Creatine Monohydrate (as Creapure®)   3 g   †
AstraGIN® Proprietary Blend [Astragalus membranaceus Extract (root) & Panax notoginseng Extract (root)]   25 mg   †
Performance Composite

Citrus Bioflavonoids   100 mg   †
Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet.
† Daily Value not established.
Other Ingredients:
Artificial Flavors, Citric Acid, Silicon Dioxide, Calcium Silicate, Gum Blend (Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Carrageenan), Caffeine (from Tea and/or Coffee Bean), Malic Acid, Sucralose, Tartaric Acid, Acesulfame Potassium, FD&C Yellow #5.

Welcome to the forum . You may gets the answer you need here but I have found that my pharmacist can answer questions like this when I run across them, sometime  … I know they usually check for drug interactions but you never know till you ask . Best of luck and welcome .

How do you like the ON pre-workout?  I use Jym pre workout and it's pretty good.  Tastes ok.  Used to use NO-Xplode, didn't much care for that.  Jym is much better.

Being new to all of this, it's so cool that you're a body-builder. Inspiring.

Yeah I agree. 

You don't have to be a body builder or anything but weight lifting is very good for you and quite helpful if you are hiv positive.  It obviously builds strength and fitness but it helps out with a lot of things hiv (can cause) like high cholesterol, diabetes, bone loss/osteoporosis, etc etc

Hey buginme2,

So, the ON Gold Standard Pre Workout is pretty good. I would rate it a 7 out of 10. Definitely underdosed (I really do have to take two scoops for much effect) and I'm not a caffeine junkie either. With two scoops, I have pretty good focus and energy but it does seem to wear off after the first hour of a workout (which is a little annoying as my workouts end up taking 1.5-2 hours)  The pumps are decent as well but not astonishing. So all around, it's a solid product, and I would buy it again, but I'm definitely lookin for something better. I think I'll try Pre-Jym next as it's been on my wish list for a while now :)

Hope this helps!

Peace,
–Alex

Hello TalloyHoYAll, the supplement stack that you are on is a nice combo. The focus and energy effects can be greatly expanded by adding N-acetyl cysteine 600mg and Alpha lopic acid 50-100mg. The Alpha lopic acid should be taken on a empty stomach for greater bioavailability.

Thanks! I'll look into both of those

I am mainly interested in it because of two reasons. It uses creatine HCL instead of monohydrate, and it has 6g of citrulline malate. The other one I would recommend is USN 3XT-Pump. It's NOT underdosed. :)

The new pre-workout I just ordered has 600mg of N-acetyl Cysteine in it.

So, my verdict on the Gold Standard PWO has changed. It's mediocre at best. I get too much jitters and not enough focusable energy.  The pumps are reasonable, but it wears off before my workout is over! Loving the Pre Jym tho. The cherry limeade smells bad but tastes pretty good. I get fantastic pumps from it, and just enough caffeine to kick start a good workout. I also like the amount of citrulline and BA it has in it, and that the creatine is HCL and not MH.

Is there a post workout you use/like?   I've used muscletech's amino build.  Pretty good as drink to stay hydrated during second half of your workout.  Taste is ok.

Post workout... I use Dymatize Super Aminos 6000, and Gold Standard Whey. Also, glutamine, ZMA, and gold standard casein before bed.
