Best Pre-Workout SupplementsGoing to the gym since I was 15 and using all types of pre-workout goodies since age 24, it's time we had a top ten list of the best brands/products to take before working out... In my opinion of course.
PAN!C doesn't fill their product with a bunch of sugary, syrupy substances to make it taste better, and it delivers a fantastic pump with the right amount of energy. It has PEA, which is a great mood and focus enhancer.
Works so well! I get a great pump for my workout and energy without feeling jittery. I can still go running afterward, unlike with other pre-workouts where running is impossible for me.
Got this at a local nutrition shop. It was good. Recommended.
This is a solid supplement and has been for a while. I've taken it for several cycles. It may or may not contain 1-3 dimethylamylamine, which is a banned substance in drug-tested athletics.
It actually enhances the metabolism of the body as well as energizes the mitochondria of the cell.
This pre-workout will give you an incredible pump and unbelievable levels of energy. Make sure you take it at least 4 hours before going to bed.
C4 makes me want to stay on the treadmill for an extra 3 miles!
The first pre-workout supplement I ever took, and I loved it. The energy level is off the charts. However, the pump doesn't extend throughout the day.
My friend and I used to love this stuff before hitting the weights!
Super Pump has great flavors and doesn't cost too much either. There is a "max" version of this now, which I haven't tried. But if it really is an improvement and not just marketing, it should prove well.
Besides the awful lemonade flavor, N.O. delivers nicely.
To be honest, this tends to have a little too much niacin in the serving size. Having said that, as long as I didn't wear sweats while working out, this was a solid supplement.
Creatine is unbeatable. The "secret," however, is to saturate the body with regular doses every day, whether in the gym or not.
Creatine complex, which gives a massive rush of energy.
Sheer caffeine and lots of it. If you're looking for an intense form of energy, this is definitely it.
The best pre-workout for someone who has a strong tolerance!
It is mental. The buzz lasts so long it's amazing.
Laugh it up, but if you mix a sugar-free energy drink with creatine and glutamine powder, well, my friends, you have a pre-workout supplement. This is sort of a last resort and is pricey per scoop.
If you don't have access to any other option and are on a tight budget, you can't go wrong with some plain old vitamin intake 30 minutes before a hard workout.
