About Pre Workouts

Pre workout products contain key amino acids and stimulants which can positively affect performance. These effects include increased strength, muscle size, increased workout stamina and an increase in muscular endurance. Ideally, Pre workout blends combine amino acids such as Beta Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Branched Chain Amino Acids and Creatine with Schisandra and Caffeine ().

Common Pre Workout Ingredients Breakdown:

Beta Alanine

Beta Alanine is a non-essential amino acid that combines with histamine in the muscles to produce carnosine and is commonly included in pre workouts because of its ability to reduce fatigue and increase endurance and performance during high-intensity exercise.

Carnosine is used as a buffer against acids that are produced in the muscles as a by-product of strenuous exercise. In muscles, Histamine levels are high and Beta Alanine levels are low making Beta Alanine the limiting factor in producing carnosine.

A study () found that supplementing Beta Alanine can increase carnosine levels by up to 80% in the muscles, increasing the muscles ability to sustain exercise at a high intensity.

It should be noted that Beta Alanine can cause a slight tingling sensation usually experienced in the face, neck and hands.

Citrulline Malate

Citrulline Malate is the combination of the amino acid Citrulline and Malate (an organic salt) and is a common ingredient found in most pre workouts.

Benefits of Citrulline Malate include:

  • Help improve anaerobic performance
  • Increased nitric oxide levels – improving blood flow, oxygen transportation and nutrient uptake.
  • Reduce fatigue and delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)

A recent study () of Citrulline Malate illustrates its effectiveness in increasing anaerobic performance and reducing DOMS.

Branch Chain Amino Acids

Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) are considered the most important amino acids for building muscle and increasing recovery. They consist of three Essential Amino Acids: Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine.

Studies have shown () BCAAs can have a direct effect on reducing DOMS, meaning downtime between training sessions can be reduced.

BCAAs have been found () to increase muscle protein synthesis (MPS), resulting in more protein entering the muscles, stimulating muscle growth, aiding in recovery and improving overall endurance.

Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine Monohydrate is one of the most heavily researched supplements. In 2007 the International Society of Sports Nutrition reviewed 100 studies () and stated that Creatine Monohydrate is currently the most effective ergogenic supplement for increasing high-intensity exercise capacity and lean body mass. The review also supports its effectiveness for building muscle, increasing muscle size, reducing muscle fatigue and increasing muscular endurance.

Creatine Monohydrate is included in pre workouts because it directly impacts the phosphocreatine stores in your muscles, this helps the muscles to create new ATP molecules, supporting the ATP energy systems which are used for muscle contraction and explosive energy.

Schisandra and Caffeine

Schisandra and Caffeine are added to Pre Workouts as they can help increase energy levels. Schisandra also helps relieve stress and can help increase endurance and performance while training.

Pre Workout FAQs

What does a Pre Workout powder do?

Pre Workout powder contains ingredients which increase performance “acutely” as well as have a longer-term benefit on strength, endurance and muscle size.

The acute benefits usually come from stimulants like caffeine and citrus aurantium which stimulate the adrenal system. These help with energy levels which assist strength and endurance. Other ingredients like Creatine, Beta Alanine and Citrulline Malate can have longer term affects on building muscle and recovery.

Is pre workout powder effective?

A Pre Workout powder can be effective, but they should be used sparingly for best results.

Drinking too much coffee or taking Pre Workouts too often will result in stimulant de-sensitivity. This means more is required to take effect and the effects are less pronounced.

Pre Workouts taken late in the evening can also lead to insomnia, sleep is the most important form of recovery.

Will a Pre Workout powder help me build muscle?

If used properly, a Pre Workout powder can assist building muscle. The stimulant action can help you shift more weight or add additional sets, creatine can have a direct effect on strength too as well as muscle size.

Will Pre Workout products give me insomnia?

If taken late in the evening Pre Workouts can lead to loss of sleep, though this depends on individual sensitivity.

Can I take Pre Workout products every day?

If you take a Pre Workout every day it will be less effective. Taking a Pre Workout daily will lead to reduced caffeine sensitivity which means you will require a larger dose for the same effect.

It’s generally accepted that Pre Workouts should only be used on heavy training days.

Can I take Pre Workout products more than once per day?

Frequent dosing (every day or multiple times a day) will mean Pre Workouts are less effective.

For best results take Pre Workouts only on training days.
