What makes a good Pre-Workout Drink?

Fuel your workout with a potent pre-workout drink! Unveil the power of five key ingredients that supercharge performance, transforming mundane workouts into efficient power sessions. Choosing the right pre-workout supplement hinges on your exercise goals and regimen.

Top 5 Ingredients to Seek in a Pre-Workout

1. Citrulline

  • Delays fatigue and promotes faster recovery between sets.
  • Citrulline increases the amount of arginine – which increases blood flow to the muscles during exercise. This helps muscles to work harder for longer under duress and produces bigger muscle pumps for weightlifters.

2. Beta-Alanine

3. Creatine

  • Offers small but immediate effects on strength and power benefits.
  • Creatine allows athletes to perform more high-intensity work in competition and training, resulting in improved performance.

4. Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)

  • BCAA’s refer to the three amino acids leucine, isoleucine and valine.
  • They help reduce muscle tissue breakdown, feelings of fatigue, and aids post-exercise recovery, crucial for athletes.
  • BCAA’s have been used by bodybuilders for decades but in recent years have become more popular among the wider athletic population.

5. Caffeine

  • Boosts alertness, concentration, and reduces sensation of fatigue, providing a powerful energy kick.
