What do You Get out of a Workout
Modern fitness palaces are like a place of holiness these days, where one enters one day and comes out months later needing a shirt two sizes larger, biceps popping shirtsleeves. And chicks emerging with figures that make a dude’s heart stop. It is a transformation that is consummately to be desired these days when guys want to look like Arnold Schwarzenegger and chicks like Penelope Cruz.
Workouts are Tough
I have seen guys straining at the barbells so hard their eyeballs seem to pop out of their heads for just one more rep. Sweat is dripping and muscles bulging and you enviously watch, but you know what it took to finally get to look like that and keep it that way. It seems that you need to have something to get you jump-started as you warm up with the smaller weights or machines which require less effort to work up to that level of pain.
What is a PreWorkout and Prepping for it.
A pre-workout is anything you take to ready your body for a vigorous workout. Here we are talking about supplements. To do any workout at the gym, particularly those that are really strenuous and getting pumped is the goal, there should be something that can fortify and ready the body for what is coming. And it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish in the workout. Are you trying just to build endurance, bulk up those biceps, or just lose a few pounds? For some, the most important ingredients will provide energy. For others, the most important create focus or drive, or strength, or endurance.
These PreWorkouts are in the form of supplements that you take before a workout. Some bodybuilders have to have caffeine for the energy and focus it gives. This is the default stimulant in pre-workouts. Here are the ingredients needed for the basic goals one may have for putting his or her body through such punishment to look as hot and sexy and dangerous. And let’s hope also to be healthy.
Most of the ingredients listed below have multiple functions.
Energy: Caffeine is a strong stimulant, Theobromine is a mild stimulant found in chocolate, and for endurance and enhancement of mood Rhodiola Rosea, a light stimulant.
Focus: Keeps attention on the task at hand. They are Tyosine, Choline pre-cursors, Caffeine, Taurine, Theanine.
Endurance: Overall stamina, reduce stress and believe it or not, reduce the perception of fatigue. These are: Creatine, Beta-Alanine, Betaine Anhydrous, Agmatine (that dulls pain) Throsine, Rhodiola Rosea, L-Citrulline, Electrolytes such as magnesium, potassium, sodium.
Strength: These ingredients increase strength and power output, and they are: Beta-Alanine, Creatine, Betaine and Caffeine.
Pumping, bulking up: to accomplish this, increasing blood flow is necessary, and Nitric Oxide is required to get this. It helps the blood flow more evenly and maximizes muscle growth. These are: L-Citrulline, L-Arginine, Agmatine Sulfate, Beetroot Powder, Betaine Anhydrous and Red Spinach.
Summary of Best and Most Important Ingredients
Let’s cut to the chase and summarize the basic and most important five that should be essential to any workout.
These are the base:
Caffeine gives energy and focus. L-Citrulline opens arteries and supports better blood flow which takes oxygen to muscles and gives endurance. Creatine gives strength, helps recover from the beating you give the body and shapes the body. Beta-Alanine gives muscle endurance, and Electrolytes slow fatigue and give ability to muscle to the end of your routine.
Just make sure when you buy a Pre-Workout supplement, it contains these rudimentary essential ingredients in the right amounts and will give you the oomph you need to push just over that line a little more, or whatever other effect you are looking for, whether it is endurance or energy. Make sure the supplement contains the proper proportion required as follows:
- 9 grams of L-Citrulline
- 300 milligrams of Caffeine.
- 5 grams of Creatine.
- 3 Grams pf Beta Alanine
- 300 milligrams of sodium
- 100 milligrams of magnesium
- 100 milligrams of potassium in electrolytes.
