What Is a Pre Workout Supplement and What Does It Do

It is basically a stimulant formulated to give you energy to power you through your workouts, the energy usually comes from caffeine and other herbal compounds. Many pre workouts are also formulated to help your mental focus as well as boost your energy. Most of themon the market today also contain nitric oxide boosters that help improve circulation and the muscular pumps you get during the workout. Bottom line they will give you extra energy and more pumps.

What Are The Benefits

The main benefit of is the extra energy that it gives you for your training. This extra energy can help you workout harder and more intensely. Some users claim that the pre workout gives them extra strength as well, however  supplements affect us all differently so do not expect the same results as your buddy got!

What Are Some Negative Side Effects

In my opinion the biggest side effect is also one of the benefits, the training intensity. At times the energy pre workouts give you is so great that you feel like you can keep in training even though you have past the point where you should stop. Doing this to often can lead to over training and loss of strength and muscle gains. So use them wisely and stick to your normal routine and do not do more sets no matter how energized you feel!

Another negative side effect is that if you take them late in the evening you might have trouble sleeping. This is a major problem because our muscle grow and repair while we sleep so it makes no sense to train hard in the gym and lose out on the recovery process!!

The last side effect is that over use can damage the adrenal glands in the body. This is not something that will occur right away but after prolonged use over a long period of time it can cause trouble. The best way around this is to cycle on and off of them, generally take 2 weeks off when you feel you have built up a tolerance to the stimulants in them.

Or do what i do and only take them when you feel tired before a workout or when your training is going to be very demanding. I generally only use them on deadlift and squat days to give me the extra energy i need to complete my sets. Other then that I go stimulant free unless my butt is dragging that day!
