What are Pre-Workout Supplements?
Pre-workout supplements are multi-ingredient formulas, usually taken in powder form BEFORE your workout and provide energy, focus, blood flow, and overall performance. We will share 5 reasons why you should be taking a pre-workout supplement before hitting a workout.
1. Energy for Your Workout
The most important ingredient found in all pre-workout supplements is the source for energy. These products are made to provide energy so that you can wake up and power through your tough workouts. However, not all pre-workout supplements are created equal. Some use synthetic caffeine which causes jitters along with other harmful side effects. BEAM uses natural caffeine your body can digest to provide clean and stable energy.
2. Motivation to Get Into the Gym
Sometimes it is very difficult to find the motivation to get your self out of your current routine and into the gym. You get stuck in a rut and never “want” to go to the gym. Pre-workout can solve that by being the catalyst to forcing you into a gym routine. When you take pre-workout, there is nothing other than going to the gym for you. You will feel it kick in and need to hit a workout. If you just take it for this reason, you will find yourself in a new routine hitting the gym frequently.
3. Improve Athletic Performance
There have been countless clinical studies proving the impact of athletic performance when taking pre workout. By taking a pre workout supplement, you are improving your total energy levels, increasing your strength, speeding up recovery and reaction time along with countless other benefits. Pre-workout also enhances blood flow for nutrient delivery along with increasing the pump (make your muscles look better). Some studies also prove that taking pre-workout lowers the risk of heart disease.
4. Weight Loss
Pre-workout increases performance in the gym which will result in better workouts and more calorie expenditure. This means you will burn more calories than if you were to not take anything pre-workout. This will result in fat loss and lean muscle gain. On top of just taking pre-workout in general, several ingredients found in pre-workouts will aid in weight loss like caffeine.
5. Mood Enhancer
There has been several links to pre-workout supplementation and improving overall mood. By taking care of your body with regular exercise, your body produces more serotonin which can reduce depression, regulate anxiety and overall mood stabilization.
