Do you have days where you just can't get moving at the gym? Maybe you feel tired and sluggish. You can't focus and your mind wanders so you do your sets with bad form. You feel weak.
Everyone, even the most dedicated athletes, has days like that. The stimulants in pre-workouts can help with that by giving you a physical and mental boost. They help with alertness, energy, mood and power. They're one of the only things that you'd take before you worked out, instead of after, or during the day. Things like forskolin, for example, are great for cutting weight – but you can take them any time you want. Pre-workouts are best enjoyed just before you hit the gym.
What Will a Pre Workout Do For You?
One recurring theme in BPI pre workout reviews is that they make the workout more enjoyable and explosive. They create the perception that you're stronger, faster, and generally better. Whether that's a real effect or the placebo effect doesn't matter – because when your head is in the game and you're feeling good and motivated, you will perform better.
The right pre-workout will have you feeling:
- More alert
- Full of energy
- Pumped up muscles
- Happier and better motivated
- Warmer (better blood flow/less risk of injury)
- Stronger and more explosive
In many ways, the short term benefit of a pre workout is like what you'd want to get from a testosterone booster long term. Test boosters give you better sleep (so more energy), better mood, and help with recovery and a feeling of strength. A pre-workout is a short-term infusion of energy that will help you to beast the next workout that you do.
