Pre-Workout Supplements. What is it, and how will it benefit your training?

Pre-workout – it’s pretty self-explanatory right? Something you take before a workout. An instant wake-me up or perhaps a power fuel to get you through the busy working day until your late night gym sesh. You wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that all a pre-workout does is give you an energy boost before that 5am cycle class, we feel ya. Mention pre-workout to a friend, a colleague or even someone you just met and we guarantee it’s an instant conversation starter.

To arm you before your next hot debate let’s look at what actually is a pre-workout and how can it benefit you. *Spoiler Alert* Anyone can benefit from a pre-workout. No matter if you're new to the supplement world or perhaps you’re a seasoned pro.

So, let’s dive straight into the nitty gritty and explain what exactly a pre-workout is. By definition pre-workout is a dietary supplement designed to help athletes as well as weightlifters to reach their peak potential. It’s designed to increase focus, energy as well as endurance helping you to go that extra 10%. Essentially pre-workout can be the difference between a good and a great workout. 

The Kamikaze by Athletic Sport pre-workout range has been formulated to enhance your training performance as well as provide a boost to your energy levels, power your brain and provide adrenal recovery which is so important in reaching your health and fitness goals.

Let’s look a little closely at the benefits:

To enhance your training performance kamikaze is enriched with amino acids (L Citruline, Beta Alanine,) and compounds to help increase your muscular performance (Beta Anhydrous) and enhance muscle growth (Epicatechin).  To give you a mental boost Kamikaze is enriched with Alpha-GPC, to keep you sharp and focused.

For a boost to your energy levels caffeine as well as English walnut fruit extract, both natural stimulants help you to feel energetic as well as increases your feel good and mood boosting hormones (dopamine). 

For adrenal recovery a variety of ingredients (Astragin, KSM66 and Shilajit Extract) help re-balance hormones as well as help deal with the stresses of everyday life. You can count on these ingredients to help you combat that post workout muscle soreness and help you power through your day.

So next time you want to tap into your inner karate kid and ‘wax on…. wax off’ start your workout right with a pre-workout that’s going to power you through your gym session as well as get you through your 9-5.

 

P.S. It’s always important to stick to the recommended dosage. Our tip if you know you are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, half the serving size to start off with.
