Pre workout supplements are another supplement that I've found to be very important over the years.
I like to eat a full meal a few hours before my workout for most designed weight lifting programs.
Sometimes I add a meal closer to my workout when I'm trying to get more calories in during the day.
What I like to do for pre-workout is have a shake with BCAAs, a few carbs, and some energy supplements all mixed together.
I love pre workout energy supplements because they really do add to my focus and energy.
I've experimented with and without over the years for several months at a time.
Conclusion: Get a pre workout energy supplement.
Pre Workout Energy and Focus Supplement
I buy a pre-mixed powder that I use that contains BCAAs, some carbs, creatine, and some energy supplements.
I've really started to trust in this product because it gets me going at just the right times if I start sipping on it a few minutes before I start warming up for my workout.
Even after feeling tired for a day, this supplement helps get me revved up for the tough workout I have ahead of me.
The pre-workout drink is one that will help with muscle building too. Trust me on this. I saw a world of difference once I started implementing a pre-workout drink before and during my workout.
I like to sip on it before and during my entire workout along with large amounts of water. Probably around a half gallon or so total.
Experiment for Yourself on Which Pre Workout Supplements Work Best for You
You can experiment with your pre-workout drink too.
I've tried many different supplements for pre workout and continue to try them. There are some really good ones out there and some affects others differently.
So, it's up to you to experiment and find your favorites:
I like to change my pre workout drink around sometimes and have whey protein mixed with an equal combination of maltodextrin and dextrose.
I do this when I need more calories in my diet and I've come to a point where it's hard to fit more calories in throughout the day.
Waxy maize corn starch is another great carbohydrate for pre workout.
