Pre-workout products are a sports supplement that is designed to be taken before a training session or other intense workout. It aims to increase your energy, endurance and focus so that you can train harder and for longer amounts of time while improving muscle function and strength.
Pre-workouts come in many different forms. There are pre-workout snacks, pre-workout drinks, pre-workout meals and pre-workout powders. There are also vegan pre-workout products and pre-workout for women that has been specially formulated to support and fuel the female body and mind.
They can be taken before any type of intense training, from weights and HIIT training to hiking, swimming and running. Pre-workout ingredients vary from product to product, but you will generally find a combination of superfoods rich in vitamins and minerals as well as creatine, caffeine for energy and protein to assist in building muscle and aiding in the recovery of muscle tissues post-workout.
As one of Australia’s leading and fastest growing online health food stores, GoodnessMe stock natural and organic pre-workouts to help you get the most out of every session.
Discover the Macro Mike Performance range, including Pre-Workout and Plant-Aminos with a 100% natural blend of branch chain amino acids, creatine, vitamins and guarana - a plant-based alternative to caffeine.
There is also Nutra Organics with their Clean Energy and Collagen Build powders to enhance training and help to tone, repair and build muscle the natural way.
Pre-workout supplements use a blend of performance-enhancing ingredients to help give you the energy you need to sustain a workout for longer without tiring out. With the right ingredients, there’s plenty of pre-workout benefits you may experience, including:
If you’re new to workouts or feel like you have hit a plateau in your performance levels, a pre-workout can give you the boost you need to go further and maximise your results.
The right product for you will depend on the type of workout you are doing. For example, Citrulline Malate is excellent for enhancing blood flow and stimulating nitric oxide production, which is required for bodybuilding. Beta-Alanine is ideal for athletes as it can increase muscle carnosine levels which decreases fatigue and promotes longer performance making it popular to use for running, cycling and rowing.
While a good pre-workout can enhance your results and give you a jolt of energy to complete your training, it isn’t necessary. You can still eat a healthy and balanced diet without these products and maintain the optimum nutrition levels required to sustain high performance during training. Your body does require hydration before a workout, so make sure you drink plenty of water or try a protein drink or sports drink. You also need a healthy snack that contains a good amount of protein, carbohydrates and good fats. We have plenty of snack bars, bliss balls and protein bars to fuel you through a session.
In some cases, pre-workouts may not be right for you. If you are sensitive to the effects of caffeine, you may want to try a caffeine alternative such as our Macro Mike range. Pre-workouts with high levels of caffeine are not recommended during pregnancy and breastfeeding. Protein powders can be taken during pregnancy, but you may wish to try a vegan protein powder, such as hemp protein, if whey protein doesn’t agree with you. A pre-workout blend may also certain herbs that shouldn’t be consumed during pregnancy.
Always talk to your health professional or GP before taking pre-workouts if you are concerned about the effect they may have on you with a specific condition.
Whether you choose pre-workout food or a pre-workout drink, it’s best to take it around 30 minutes before you start training. This can be a bit of a trial and error process as everyone absorbs ingredients at different speeds so you will need to see what works for you and your body. Similarly, the amount of time that a pre-workout will last varies from person to person. Most pre-workouts last 1 1/2 -2 hours.
The best way to take a pre-workout powder, such as the Nutra Organics Clean Energy Natural Pre-Workout, is to dissolve the recommended dosage in water. Pre-workouts can come in delicious flavours, like vanilla and chocolate, to ensure they taste great. You can find Macro Mike Super Greens in apple flavour, Pre-Workout in Tropical Berry Blast and more.
However, you can also use pre-workout powder as a smoothie booster blitzed with your favourite milk or sprinkled into your own energy bars and raw treats.
