For two nights in a row now, I have had a lot of trouble falling asleep for some reason. Combine that with the fact that I did not get the best sleep over the weekend, and I was one groggy, sleepy mess this morning. Since I work out first thing in the morning and had to take my kids to school today, I had to be at the gym within under an hour upon waking up. This barely gave me time for my pre-workout meal (which is a shake) to start digesting. Everything is more strenuous when you are sleepy, and this morning was no exception. I never will let that stand in my way of the gym, however.
Luckily, there is such a thing as pre-workout. For I certainly needed it this morning more than ever. You might know if you have read some of my blog posts that my current favorite pre-workout is Evlution Nutrition Engn, sometimes just called Evl Engn. I combine this with 6 grams of Kaged Muscle Citrulline (or any quality citrulline will do), and 1 scoop of MuscleTech’s Creactor Creatine to make what I feel is the ultimate pre-workout. I have some beta alanine on order that should be arriving soon that I am going to be adding to the cocktail. This magical combination gets me from sleepy and groggy to amped for the gym within about 20 minutes of consumption. It has worked for my every single time and I swear by it.
Though I have only been doing this pre-workout for about the last six months, it is my current favorite. I am sure another pre-workout will come along and sweep my off my feet, but in the meantime I am sticking to this one.
I want to know from you, the reader, what is YOUR favorite pre-workout?
Comment below and let me know your favorite(s) are. Perhaps there is something out there that will hit me even better than Evl Engn, and I am sure other readers are curious what everyone’s picks are for their favorite pre-workout. Let us know people!
