Some great info here on pre workouts from ambassador @ptbrenm Give it a read..🙌
Which is the best Pre-workout?
There are countless Pre-workout supplements on the market, but or the most, the 3 main most effective ingredients are the same. What are they?
Caffeine - 200-300mg
Can aid mental focus, alertness and reduced muscle soreness. Caffeine is an effective stimulant, particularly just before a workout, that can boost fat loss by binding to fat cells and enhance the "removal" of fat from them while inhibiting the storage of more fat. Caffeine also works to increase fat-burning during rest and exercise. Also, researchers at the University of Illinois found that subjects consuming caffeine pre-workout experienced less muscle pain during their workout than their non-caffeinated counterparts.
Creatine - 3-5 grams
A substance that naturally occurs within our muscle cells, mainly around the skeletal muscle tissue (95% of the body's creatine is here). Creatine has been manufactured as “creatine monohydrate” for dietary supplement purposes. The benefits of supplementing additional creatine include the promotion of lean body mass, muscle cell volume increases, recovery time shortens, glycogen storage increases and high intensity muscle performance can improve.
Beta-alanine – 2-6 grams
This is a non-essential amino acid, Beta-alanine (BA) has performance enhancement qualities increasing intra-muscular levels of carnosine. This increase in beta-alanine through supplementation suggests carnosine levels are raised by over 60% in as quickly as four weeks. (During high-intensity exercise our bodies accumulate hydrogen which causes our pH to drop. This can cause fatigue and decrease muscle performance). So with increased levels of carnosine, the body is able to delay the accumulation of hydrogen and subsequently, delay muscle fatigue and failure.
P.S. Pre-workout shown in the pic is my favourite due to flavour. @cobralabs "Curse", available at @taurusleicester -
