And sometimes once you hit the gym you need that extra pick me up to able to do your workout effectively. I know there have been many times I have gone to the gym with no energy. And I am thinking to myself I need a good shot of caffeine right now. So, I can gain some good energy boosting fuel which would help me plow through my workout I am about embark on.

The main common ingredient in a pre-workout is caffeine. And pre workouts are typically in pill or powder form. Caffeine is in most pre workouts and there are some pre workout supplements where they load way too much of caffeine. Most pre workouts have anywhere from 150 mg to 300 mg of caffeine and some even have more than that which is crazy. 150 mg to 300 mg is about roughly three cups of coffee.

Beta Alanine is also another ingredient you would find in a pre-workout. And beta alanine is great for high intensity workout especially like sprinting or plyometric workouts. It is great for recovery and minimizing fatigue. If you have any heart related issue you need to consult your doctor before taking any pre workout whatsoever.

If you do buy pre workout dietary supplements, take the time to look at the supplement facts information at the back of the bottle. And make sure there is not any ingredient in there that will give you any allergic reaction.

And also check that there isn’t a high amount of caffeine in there that could be too much for your body. Most people that buy a pre workout or any supplement in general do not take the time to look at the back of the bottle and see what is inside there.
