Best Energy Drinks for Pre-Workout

 

Let us travel down this narrow path of options and see what’s available out there.

SPOILER ALERT:

ENERGY DRINKS ARE A BAD PRE-WORKOUT

3 REASONS WHY:

1. (click to reveal)

They’re Carbonated

The fizz will most likely cause minor discomfort while that time and energy could be spent on working out instead.

Plus your stomach plays a vital role in energy production: think of how you feel after a large meal.

2. (click to reveal)

There’s Nothing Good out there.

Too many drinks are tainted with artificial sweeteners and preservatives.

This is definitely something we should avoid for the long term game (what working out essentially is), Let’s not trade strength for deteriorated health in the future.

3. (click to reveal)

They’re expensive.

You can get the same amount (if not more) of servings from pre-workout powders, for the money, with more ingredients and less “negatives” i.e. artificial sweeteners, preservatives, and colorants.

Seriously, the colorings in some of them! As if you’re drinking ****ng candy lol.

The cans are not even see-through! Why then even..? smh

I don’t want to waste your time

OTHERWISE, KEEP READING FAM.

Cellucor C4

Starting with C4: as it’s formula is the best one for pre-workout with its “Explosive Performance Energy Blend“.

But since it has Potassium Sorbate, a harmful preservative along with artificial sweeteners, much like BANG, I’d avoid it.
I myself used C4 as the last resort because I ran out of my usual stuff due to a delayed shipment.

The energy was nice. But my brain started lacking focus because of the artificial stuff. So I haven’t had to use it since I eventually received my original order.
C4 does what it’s intended for: give you the solid energy boost for your workout, or your day if need be. But I wouldn’t drink it long-term, only as a backup.

Celsius Heat

Most notable things about it:
it produces plenty of energy with 300mg of caffeine
and 2000 mg of citrulline – good for blood circulation, fatigue, muscle weakness.
Guarana stimulant for weight loss, athletic performance, mental performance, to increase energy, as an aphrodisiac.
Glucuronolactone a toxin removing and performance-enhancing chemical that is also produced naturally in the liver.
Green Tea Extract (good)
Ginger Extract (good)
Taurine (this one is controversial)

But it has sucralose.

Other than that this is a decent option.

Hi-Ball Energy

Now you could go with something organic and really clean, but it’s so clean in fact, that it lacks significant enough energy punch for a workout, compared to what I’m personally used to.

Besides 0 sugar it has a few vitamins and:

160mg Organic Caffeine

50mg Organic Guarana

50mg Organic Ginseng

 

GURU Organic Energy Drink

This one is much like Hi-Ball all natural and organic but with different plant-based ingredients such as green tea leaf extract, echinacea flower extract as well as ginseng and guarana.

But it has 21g of (organic) sugar which is a simple carb. And simple carbs burn fast which may lead to a crash.

100mg of Natural Caffeine

 

BUT I GOT GOOD NEWS

BECAUSE THERE’S ANOTHER OPTION


What I really recommend are powdered pre-workout drinks.
All you have to do is add water.
You’ll get a nice surge of motivation to actually work out
and you will save money since you’re getting more servings and ingredients for the price.
Powdered pre-workout blends have been around for a long time and they’ve evolved into effective energy boosters designed to give you the energy to power through workouts and support your fitness progress.
