I personally find that taking a energy drink gives me a little boost. I prefer the energy shot over the full sized energy drink since I find that the carbination of the full size drinks makes me feel a little gassy.

My Personal Favorite is the 5hr energy shot I find it works good and that I don't get much of a crash to bad they taste horrible.

How do you feel about energy drinks and if your a fan what is your favorite?

No offense, but I just don't think it's a good idea to use energy drinks for working out. With all the caffeine and sugar in them, your heart gets racing and if you're already working out hard, your heart is going to get strained with all that work. Also caffeine narrows your blood vessels which raises your blood pressure and makes it even worse on your heart.

Of course, I am kind of biased because energy drinks make me flushed and I get palpitations and the shakes. It's not so bad if I need them to stay awake on a long car trip or a night shift. But I can only really drink about half of a sugar-free Red Bull (which I find tastes better than the regular one).

No energy drink can take me down. Although I did try one called the energy bullet and I felt like I was vibrating I was actually scared but fortunately I survived.
