What’s in a Good Preworkout?


I love preworkout! I could easily be called a junkie. My fascination with the effects of preworkout started with my first scoop of N.O. XPLODE. I still remember that day 15 years ago. I remember I hated doing legs just as much as I do today but I felt the rush and the energy. I felt superhuman and my obsession with the benefits of preworkout began.


Preworkout has changed over the years with components being banned for both good and bad reasons. A common reason is the use of components by consumers not physically prepared for the stresses of the exercise they are performing under the effects of the preworkout. I know that personally I used preworkouts for years without the slightest understanding of what was in them and how they benefited me. As someone who cares about my health and fitness, I knew I had to change that. I have since tried an obscene amount of preworkouts on the market and studied the components in them over the last 15 years.


What is important in a preworkout? The diversification of goals in preworkouts makes this question a complex one. Years ago when I first started it was all about nitric oxide pumps and caffeine, but now the options can be overwhelming. There’s creatine vs no creatine, high stim vs no stim, and does it have mental focus or is it a pump product. 


I wrote this article as a general overview of preworkout options, not an in-depth article as to amount of what components just as to helping people decide what product might be right for them.



In conclusion, the products on the market are many and varied. While there are a lot of great products on the market there are also a lot of bad products on the market. I encourage some due diligence before taking products as there is very little regulation on the supplement market.
