Pre-workout supplements are becoming more and more popular, and for good reason. They can give you that much needed pick-me-up when you really don’t feel like working out and they can give you the strength, energy, focus and endurance you need to get a great workout.
There are many different types of ingredients that go into pre-workouts but they can all be classified into four simple categories:
1. Creatine – Creaine monohdrate, Creatine HCL etc
2. Energy boosters – Caffeine, herbal stimulants etc
3. Amino acids – Nitric Oxide, Beta alanine, Taurine, Tyrosine, BCAAs etc
4. Vitamins – B vitamins, Vitamin C etc
Some blends don’t include creatine and some include several types of creatine. Some pre-workouts only use caffeine whereas others include many types of herbal stimulants. Pre-workout blends can vary quite a bit from one to the next.
It really all comes down to a matter of personal preference. What works great for one person may not work as well for someone else. The list below includes 12 of the most popular and effective pre-workout supplements currently available. Chances are at least one of the choices listed below will work great for you.
In fact, most people enjoy switching up their pre-workout supplement from time to time because the body can become used to a specific blend over time, making it less effective. So, it may benefit you to try as many of the different blends below as you can.
If you’re looking for a natural blend, creatine free blend or some other specification I will list any special attributes next to the supplement.
