Not all pre workouts supplements are made alike, what works for most people might not work for others. Majority of these supplements are based of stimulating your body with a big hit of caffeine. So if you are extra sensitive to caffeine then you might want to opt for a stimulant free pre workout.


Optimal dose: 200-500mg

Caffeine is of the main stimulant that gives you uber-loads of energy. In several studies it has been shown that taking caffeine can provide a physical boost before a workout. It increases workloads by decreasing the rate of fatigue and lowering the perception of effort.

Also note that the doses will vary from person to person. If you are an everyday caffeine user, well then you are going to need more to get you up. If you aren’t, well…. You won’t. But be sure to pay attention to you intake of caffeine as it takes a while for it to wear off, therefore keeping you up late at night. And that is a massive NO NO, as you need sleep to grow!

Citrulline Malate

Optimal dose: 6,000 – 8,000mg

Citrulline Malate is a combo of the amino acid Citrulline and malic acid. It has two effects on the body that makes it very useful as a pre workout supplement. Both combined will increase your energy and your nitric oxide levels allowing more blood circulation for increased performance and recovery.

Beta- Alanine

Optimal dose: 3,200 – 5,000mg

Have you ever felt that tingly sensation, all the way to a tingly itchiness that’s unpleasant? Well you guessed it that’s Beta – Alanine. So what is it? Beta- Alanine increases muscle levels of carnosine, an intracellular buffer that helps fight fatigue during high-intensity exercise. By increasing intermuscular levels of carnosine, you are able to train harder and longer allowing for greater muscle growth.


Optimal dose: 15 – 25grams

Creatine supplementation provides your muscles with the quick energy that they need during a workout. After consumption, your body coverts the creatine to phosophocreatine and stores it in your muscles. When you perform high-intensity exercises, your muscle then release this creatine and use it to create the workout energy source.

If you really need that energy kick, then pre workout is the way to go.
