Pre-Workouts: do they actually make a difference?

May 25, 2021

Pre-WorkoutsIf you are like me, it is hard to find the energy to work out after a long day working or running errands- which is basically living life. Pre-Workouts have been a staple in my daily exercise routine. I look for ones of high-quality with less chemicals and more natural ingredients. Still, I do like a big jolt of caffeine because I have loved coffee for years.  I choose higher caffeine counts from 300 to 400 milligrams.

Many Pre-Workouts are available in all natural root form for vegans and super clean diet followers. Because these can give you a kickstart, first make sure that you are healthy heart-wise and have your blood pressure tested.  Some side effects are tingling of the skin, being jittery, feeling a jolt, and  suddenly  20 minutes later feeling run down because it’s spiked and you crashed.  I would try a lower dosage of caffeine first to see if the effects work for you and at what strength.

There are numerous brands, flavors, and stores where you can find Pre-Workouts. Since most are flavored powders, they are mixed with water.  I use it for my cardio portion, because I have difficulty keeping my optimal energy levels up to accomplish my personal workout intensity.

If you need a recommendation, don’t hesitate to contact me directly.
