WHAT’S IN IT?
Pre-workout blends contain several ingredients to help you make the most of your workouts. When making a decision to purchase, look for blends that have a myriad of high-quality pre-workout ingredients which help perform these roles:

Increases strength, power and performance in repetitive bouts of brief, highly-intense physical activity.
Supports muscle protein synthesis.
Helps to decrease cognitive fatigue due to physically stressful situations.
Helps provide energy by reducing your perception of fatigue.
HOW DO I TAKE IT?
Taking a pre-workout is easy. Simply combine the product with water, mix and drink. Aim to consume it about 30-45 minutes before you intend to workout. Remember to take only on workout days, otherwise if you consume it daily you’ll develop an immunity and the desired effects will be blunted. Also, take on an empty stomach for faster and better absorption.
