Pre-workout Supplementation Should Not Be Confused With Ener



Pre-workout supplementation should not be confused with energy drinks or other sports drinks, which can have some overlapping ingredients such as caffeine, but differ in specific ingredients and benefits✅

Pre-workout essentially provides quick energy⚡️ for intense physical activity?️‍♀️, as well as providing other benefits that help to enhance muscle endurance and growth??

Quick breakdown of the main ingredients:

1️⃣Beta-alanine
Beta-alanine is an amino acid, which are often added to exercise supplements with the intent of increasing rates of muscle protein production and reducing muscle breakdown. However, studies have shown that amino acids don’t significantly make a difference when it comes to increasing muscle production and reducing muscle breakdown.

2️⃣Creatine nitrate
Creatine nitrate is also an amino acid and is naturally found in the muscle of many animals. Supplementation of creatine has been shown to enhance exercise performance.

3️⃣L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate
Is suggested to reduce fatigue associated with resistance training, however there is no significant evidence to show that L-arginine alpha-ketoglutarate has any effect on reducing fatigue or improving athletec performance.

4️⃣Caffeine
Caffeine is the main ingredient of pre-workout and the reason why most people consume it. It’s rapidly absorbed in the bloodstream and provides quick energy⚡️, enhancing performance during endurance, power and resistance exercise.

?Supplementation use before a workout is completely optional and will depend on each persons goals, energy requirements and preferences.

?The recommended serving size for pre-workout is 1-2 scoops and should be taken 20-30 minutes before a workout.
