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.
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.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites
[No Flour, No Oil, No White Sugar]
1 1/4 cups canned* chickpeas, well-rinsed and patted dry with a paper towel
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons (165 grams) natural peanut butter (can use PB2 from gym to make healthier, check your labels)
1/4 cup (80 grams) honey (agave would be amazing too!)
1 teaspoon baking powder**
a pinch of salt if your peanut butter doesn’t have salt in it
1/2 cup (90 grams) chocolate chips
* My can was a 400 gram can, 240 grams without the water, and I used all but a few tablespoons
** If you need grain-free baking powder, you can use 1 part cream of tartar + 1 part baking soda + 2 parts arrowroot.
Preheat your oven to 350°F / 175°C.
Combine all the ingredients, except for the chocolate chips, in a food processor and process until very smooth. Make sure to scrape the sides and the top to get the little chunks of chickpeas and process again until they’re combined.
Put in the chocolate chips and stir it if you can, or pulse it once or twice. The mixture will be very thick and sticky.
With wet hands, form into 1 1/2″ balls. Place onto a piece of parchment paper. If you want them to look more like normal cookies, press down slightly on the balls. They don’t do much rising. Bake for about 10 minutes.
Yields about fourteen 1 1/2″ cookie dough balls.
*** Don’t even try with regular peanut butter! They’ll come out oily. You MUST use natural peanut butter.
I made these last night and they are seriously so delicious. Warm, gooey, and taste just like regular cookie dough. Similar tasting to the Pilsbury cookie dough! MAKE THEM! Healthy and satisfying.

Overnight oats (OO) is basically oats soaked in the liquid of your choice. Either milk or yogurt, but you can always experiment with other kinds. It is often chilled overnight (hence the name) and usually left uncooked. However you can heat it up if you prefer to. It is perfect for days when you are in a rush to make breakfast, just make it in a jar the day before and it’s ready to go the next day.
