Is Maximus okay to use as a pre-workout shake? Or should I be using something else? I need something in powder form I can make at work before going to the gym.

Thanks

I think opticen would be a better choice but let Chris answer that one.

Opticen would be the better choice as a "meal replacement" but alot of it depends on your goals as well. I would be way too full from a Maximus shake before the gym, haha

Maximus would be better post workout.

I'm with Ben, if I took it pre workout I'd barf it all over the gym halfway through my workout. Calories don't do you any good if they are wasted like that!! LOL

I think opticen would be a perfect PWO shake. That or results+nitrean.

Yeah, I was actually just going to edit my post. Opticen is better PWO than Maximus since thats what its designed for.

But if you don't have Opticen and you do have Maximus, take the Maximus post workout, not pre. Unless of course by "pre workout" you mean a couple hours before workout. In that case it'd be ok

i take maximus about an hour before workouts then immediately after. Seems to be doing the trick!

I take half a serving before and half after... I would take more if calories allowed. I don't see anything wrong with drinking it prior.
