What is a pre-workout supplement?

A pre-workout supplement is a health supplement that you take before your workout. Usually athletes and bodybuilders will take it 15 - 30 minutes before their workout or exercise. Pre-workout supplements usually only come in powder form and it is very rare for them to come in pill form. This is because pre-workout supplements work best when drank with plenty of water and with pills, usually people only take enough water to swallow the pills. The easiest way to consume a pre-workout supplement is follow the directions on the label found on the back of the supplement. However the instructions are quite common, put the recommended scoop amount into a shaker bottle with 200-250 milligrams of water, put on the lid and shake for 10-15 seconds.

What does a pre-workout supplement do?

It aids in increasing energy, strength, endurance and mental focus. It does this through the range of the ingredients that it is made up of. When finding a pre-workout supplement for you, it is very important to do your research on each ingredient to know it benefits and side effects. In saying this most pre-workout supplement are safe to use and generally the creators usually pick the ingredients to complement each other.

It is important to make sure you pick a reputable supplement brand, this is because there are tens of thousands of brands in the United States and generally the loose manufacture standards of the United States allow anyone to make a supplement.  When anyone can release their own supplement brand it is very important to make sure the supplement brand that you choose, follows a well known standard of manufacturing.

Warnings:

Pre-workout supplements are effective for not only bodybuilders and athletes but the “average joe” as well. However there are a few common warnings that do come with pre-workout supplements, particularly if you have liver, kidney, blood pressure or heart problems. Generally this type of supplement require your liver and kidneys to be in a good working condition as they are the organs which processes what is being digested. Regarding blood pressure and heart issues, pre-workout supplements are well known for containing high amounts of caffeine and other stimulants which contract blood vessels, inducing higher blood pressure levels. This also puts pressure on the heart which is needed to respond to higher levels of exercise by pumping harder and faster. If you have heart problems this could cause you to have a heart attack or at the least stimulant irregular heartbeats. In saying this, there are millions of people around the world that take these types of supplements and have no health problems what so ever. However taking precautions can save you in the future.

BPI Sports is a reputable supplement company who has been producing millions of supplements each year. They also operate 4 different other brands, which are well known in their own niches. BPI Sports pre-workout supplement is called 1MR and is a very safe and effective supplement. For more information and reviews on 1MR and its ingredients you can find it at http://www.supplementexpress.com.au/1MR-Powder.

OIL-FREE HEALTHY VEGAN SPINACH, WALNUT, BASIL AND SUN DRIED TOMATO PESTO RECIPE

  • 1/2 clove of garlic
  • 1 handful of fresh spinach
  • 8 walnut halves
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • 4 sun dried tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp of lemon juice (the more the better)
  • salt and pepper to taste

This recipe is simple, delicious and wonderful for you. Take the garlic, spinach, walnuts, basil, tomatoes and stick it all into a food processor. Blend until semi-smooth, now start adding the lemon juice, salt and pepper. Keep tasting as you go along. I love mine very lemony. And voilà, you have yourself a dressing that goes beautifully on pasta, tomato salads or even on toast. You can make a larger batch and keep it stored in the fridge, it should comfortably keep for about a week. Enjoy!
