So, you’re ready to try a pre-workout. Although not required to get results, many people find that taking one helps them go harder at the gym for longer. Ingredients vary, but in general, you can expect a pre-workout to improve your endurance, focus and energy levels. Picking the right one depends on your goals and training style, but to help you decide, we’ve broken out our four options in ascending intensity:
Best BCAA™ w/ Energy
Best BCAA™ w/ Energy is great for beginners. If you’re trying to figure out the level of stimulants you’re comfortable with, this formula is comparable to a cup of coffee, so it’s a great starter. Take it before your workout or mid-afternoon for a quick pick-me-up. It’s the perfect substitute for sugar-loaded energy drinks. Plus, it also contains BCAAs for muscle building support, optimal recovery and improved performance.
Best Pre Workout™
Best Pre Workout™ was formulated as the first ever ketogenic pre-workout to help support athletes following a keto diet. Due to the low intake of carbs required to reach ketosis, many people experience the “keto flu” during the adaptation phase, which is characterized by low energy and mental “fogginess.” Best Pre Workout™ contains MCTs and BHB salts that act as fuel for your mind and body in a carb-depleted state. It also has caffeine to give you a boost of energy.
Our newest pre-workout is the evolution of the legendary 1.M.R. While it still contains caffeine, this pre-workout was designed to provide benefits other than energy. The new formula contains citrulline, carnitine and beetroot to support performance, pump and even weight loss.
1.M.R Vortex™ is the “value” version of our original 1.M.R formula. It’s still powerful and effective, we simply reduced the price to make it more affordable for everyone. Find it at Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Giant Eagle, Kroger, SuperValue, Wegmans and Shopko.
