Pre workout has many benefits for ensuring you have the best training session possible. And here's the science behind it.
There's 4 main ingredients that drive most of the benefits of pre-workout: caffeine, beta-alanine, creatine, and argenine.
Caffeine - duh. It's a stimulant. It gets you wired, focused, and increases concentration. It also gets the heart rate up and the blood pumping.
Beta-alanine is a type of amino acid that is linked to providing central nervous system stimulation, aid in the retention of lean muscle mass, and preserve muscular endurance so you can hit those heavy reps deep in your lift. It's also responsible for that tingles that come with preworkout blends.
Creatine is a huge driver of building mass. Although in small dosages in preworkout, the main function is to provide a boost in muscular power. Creatine is necessary for converting energy from fuel to stimulate muscle contractions. The more creatine available, the easier muscles will contract even under fatigued conditions.
Arginine is a vasoldillator. It opens up the blood vessels for better flow to muscles. Without good blood flow, muscles don't get the oxygen supply they need for peak performance. Vasodilation also helps remove the waste products of work - i.e. lactic acid. Additionally, better vasodilation = better pump.
I use @ghostlifestyle
for my preworkout. It's got slightly more caffeine than a cup of coffee, a fully disclosed label, and no proprietary blend. I know the amounts of each included ingredient and research will tell me exactly what each of those is for. There's no trickery, just benefits and good taste.

Some people workout perfectly well when they are fasting, some absolutely have to eat before they workout 🏋️♂️ There is no 'correct' answer, everyone is different! ✅ So for those of you that like to have something to 'fuel' your workout, here is a list of nutritious food to help 👍🏼 (Remember to eat these at least 30 minutes before you workout):⠀
1️⃣ Banana and nut butter 🍌 2️⃣ Yoghurt with Granola and Berries 🍓3️⃣ Toast and Nut Butter 🌰 4️⃣ Handful of Dried Fruit and Nuts 🥜 5️⃣ Fruit Smoothie 🍏 ⠀
Put a little pep in your step with a totally tasty and totally nutritious Lemon Chia Bar! 🍋😊🍋

Been dreaming about this since I cut up the strawberries this morning! 💭 .
Vegan vanilla bean yogurt topped with fresh cut strawberries & hemp hearts 🍓🍽
Simple, filling, & delicious fuel for my workout later ☺️
Pre gym snacks - what's your go to? I typically find that rice cakes with nut butter and a couple of #energyballs
gives me the boost I need without making me feel sluggish or heavy.
Used new #multigrain @ryvitauk #ricecakes
as they've got a really great light texture and nutty taste slathered in #meridianpeanutbutter
. Sometimes I just have this plain, this time I added banana as felt quite low on energy and these are easy to digest and a source of fast carbs.
I tend to try and get small protein boost in too and these @theproteinballco #veganprotein
balls are unbelievable. Love most of the flavours but this raspberry brownie is especially good - moist, fudgy and with a great jammy taste. I tend to just have a couple as don't want too much protein to digest before the gym and 2 of these gives 4g #plantprotein
and then I can have the remaining 4 after as a treat!
So so important to #fuelyourbody
adequately - having a snack before the gym makes such a difference to my energy levels. I used to go fasted but enjoy it so much more with a small bite beforehand.

London doesn’t have mountains, but I make them out of the nearest mole hills.
The weight difference in these pictures doesn’t even matter. It’s the difference in mindset!
In the picture on the left I was super unhappy. I didn’t only not like the way I looked I didn’t like the person I was inside. My mindset was not where it needed to be.
I had the mindset that I had to fit in with everyone. That I had to have the perfect body. I tried everything to try get that perfect body but it wasn’t working. I had trouble dealing with the way I looked & felt.
I talked down about myself & said negative things about myself. I was beating myself down but I didn’t know it. I had the idea that if I kept telling myself I didn’t look right I would motivate myself to change it. My idea totally didn’t work.
When I started to lose weight I started to feel better about myself. My mindset changed & I was telling myself I could do it. I was boosting myself up! Never talk down to yourself. Boost yourself up!
Are you in the right mindset? If not how will you change it?

the gym is bright af at six am
I’m just going to keep it real with you guys.. I was doing everything in my power to talk myself out of getting my workout in.. especially at 2am! 😭💪🏼But then I had to check myself because at the end of the day results don’t care how you feel. You can either b*tch/complain or get it done. 🙌🏻 Times like this is when you need to push yourself even more.
