Practicing good exercise nutrition, specifically targeted supplementation, is one of the keys to training success. Whether you training for aesthetics or performance, there are three key nutritional windows you should be optimising: What you consume before training (pre-workout), during (intra-workout), and after training (post-workout).
At Bulk Nutrients, we have several great options for each workout window. In this blog, we will examine your best pre-workout options.
When considering pre-workout supplement options, your primary goals should be to maximise your subsequent training session by priming your mental & physical state. This is best achieved through our pre-workout range of blended formulas to stimulate the mind and prime the body for maximum performance.
The best options for this are Bulk Nutrients’ pre-workouts:
- Pre-Workout 101: The optimal blend of performance ingredients to maximise training.
- Pre-Workout 101 (non-stimulant): As above but designed for those sensitive to stimulants.
For those seeking hypertrophy and/or bulking
Add a pre-workout serving of Muscle Food 101 to get clean carbohydrates and protein needed for muscle building.
For those seeking fat loss
Substitute the pre-workouts for our AM Burner as this will maximise fat burning, whilst providing a solid mental and physical stimulative hit.
For endurance (any sessions over two hours) trainers
Consider consuming one serving of Recuper8 or Electrolyte+ to fuel up pre-training. If you want a lower carbohydrate option, try this mix of one serving of BCAA Recovery with 10 millilitres of MCT Oil.
