my personal experience, nothing. No results. You have to drink the workout supplement; so you end up lifting on a full stomach of water and supps, very uncomfortable. Plus, I feel you need to train like you fight/fight like you train. You won't always have the option to take a pre-workout supp. before you go to battle (metaphorically) or even every workout. Lots of people then find excuses to not lift because they don't have their supps!
I've tried a shit load of pre/post/during supps too. All the ones you mentioned, plus more. basically, they pumped me up for my walk to the gym, then 5 minutes in, the pump was gone and I got super tired. eat evenly throughout the day (unless you're doing IF) and your energy should be fine.
