Caffeine Proves Once Again To Be An Excellent Pre Workout Supplement

11 September 2011 No Comment

There are boatloads of preworkout supplements on the market aimed at assisting you with more energy, endurance, strength, etc. during your workouts.  However, nothing has stood the test of time and real world success such as good old caffeine.

Recently, Flex magazine wrote, “Researchers from the United Kingdom had trained male lifters complete as many reps as they could on the bench press with 60% of their one-rep max (a weight they could lift for about 20 reps) one hour after consuming about 400 milligrams of caffeine or a placebo.  They reported in a 2011 issue of the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research that when the subjects consumed the caffeine before the workout, they were able to complete an average of two more reps as compared to when they consumed the placebo.  So do as we have always recommended and take 200-400 mg of caffeine, or use a preworkout supplement containing caffeine, about an hour before workouts to boost strength and endurance.  Getting a couple of extra reps on most sets during a workout can make a huge difference in how much muscle mass you pack on.”

An excellent supplement to combine with your workout nutrition is our recommended creatine monohydrate supplement.
