What is Pre-Workout and Do You need it?
Are you seeing people in your gym and social media proudly promoting and using pre-workouts but you're wondering if this is for you and if you really need it?
Read below to find out if you could benefit from this supplement.
What is Pre-Workout
Pre-workout supplements are typically a powered drink mix that are designed to boost your exercise performance. As the name suggests, it is to be consumed “pre” workout, approx. 15-30 mins, to rev up your body and get you in the training zone.
Many pre-workouts vary depending on the brand, but the overarching aim is to increase energy levels to allow you to train harder and push your workout to the next level. Across the board, they usually contain B-vitamins and Caffeine for energy boosting properties and Beta- Alanine for increased exercise capacity and endurance.
Do you need to take Pre-Workout?
The answer to this question depends on your goals and the day.
If your goal is to get through your workout for everyday fitness, whether you need Pre–Workout may depend on how your body is feeling on the day. Somedays you may be drained and fatigued so you need a ‘pick-me-up’ to get through the workout. Other days you might be feeling energized and lively, and you may not need the extra boost from a Pre-Workout.
If your goal is to get the absolute most out of your workout and see results fast, whether that be improved fitness, increase muscle or weight loss, Pre-Workout will help you get there. Regardless if you are feeling flat or motivated and energized, Pre-Work is designed to improve your performance so you can hit your fitness goals and push yourself beyond your limits and pain barriers, where the results are achieved.
There are two fatigue triggers that can make you want to call it a day during your workout: mental (central nervous system) and physical (peripheral fatigue in your muscles) signals.
Research has shown that your mental fatigue (brain signals) can underestimate how much energy and performance capacities you still have left in the tank. Therefore, your brain may be telling you ‘stop’ but your muscles can physically push through and go harder for longer. This is the point where Pre-Workout becomes your training best friend and progress happens.
What makes PranaOn’s Pure Boost Pre-Workout so good?
Our Pure Boost’s unique formula is completely natural and vegan friendly, designed to give you a boost with the assistance of energizing B Vitamins and Taurine, without the crash post workout.
Pure Boost, aims to tackle both fatigue triggers by containing active ingredients that keep you focused and improve mental fatigue while simultaneously improving your physical performance capabilities. Clinically dosed with 3000mg of Citrulline Malate and Vinitrox™ (a combination of Apple and Grape polyphenols), both increase physical training time and delay muscular fatigue. These ingredients are well known for being a powerful nitric oxide precursor. Nitric Oxide (NO) causes vasodilation of the blood vessels which in turn increases blood flow and oxygen delivery, leading to harder and longer workouts.
With added Nootropics such as Ginseng, Caffeine Anhydrous & Green Coffee Bean, you'll also have improved concentration and reaction time.
To fight mental fatigue triggers from the central nervous system, Pure Boost contains both L-Tyrosine to improve alertness and keep you in the zone, as well as the adaptogen Schizandra to assist with modulating the body’s response to the physical stresses of exercise.
These powerful ingredients combined work synergistically to combat the two fatigue triggers (mental and physical) to keep you pushing through your limits. With enhanced mental alterness, focus and reaction time along with increased energy output, stamina and power, you can expect to improve your workouts, form and reps resulting in better results soner.
Whether you are looking for a pick-me-up on days you're feeling flat and low in energy or if you're goal is to get the most from your workouts for faster results, Pure Boost pre-workout can support you naturally.
