Getting ready to work out shouldn’t be complicated. Especially if you are someone waking up super early to get your workout in before your day even begins. You already need to worry about wearing the right clothes and getting out of the door on time, so figuring out what to drink shouldn’t set you back either. We know that some of you choose not to eat anything before a workout. If this is you, we would like you to at least drink something before a workout. Here are our recommendations on what to drink before a workout.
What Should I Drink Before a Workout
Pre-workouts are made literally just for that, drinking before your workout. We highly recommend POW. POW® is a natural pre-workout that enhances your mind and muscles to help you maximize your workouts. POW supports muscle performance, energy, circulation, and joints while being non-GMO, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, allergen-free, soy-free. It also contains no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. Is free of banned performance enhancers. And won’t lead to any crashes or jitters.
If you’re expecting a tough workout, consider downing a green juice. The green juice will help provide your body with hydration and some calories to fuel you through your workout without weighing you down. This will provide you with some extra calories for energy, but it won’t weigh you down like solid food, Fischer explains. Just make sure you aren’t drinking one with added sugars in them.
Ready to Drink Protein Shake
Again if you are expecting a tougher workout or lifting heavy, it is wise to get in some calories. A great way is with a premade protein shake or grabbing some protein water and mixing it with water. That way, nothing feels heavy in the body, but still fueling your body up with some great nutrients before your workout.
BCAAs, aka Branched-chain amino acids, help maintain cellular energy levels before physical activity and support a workout and recovery by stimulating muscle protein synthesis. You can drink these by themselves or add them to your protein shake, if you have one. We have our own BCAAs, called RESCUE. RESCUE is an instantized vegan BCAA formula that helps support muscle recovery and promote lean muscle protein synthesis for men and women with a perfectly balanced ratio of 2:1:1. Maximize your recovery and crush your next workout with RESCUE.
Research shows that caffeine can help improve your athletic power and endurance. It has a way of tricking the body on its perception of effort, pain and fatigue, which then can lead to better performance. Our go-to caffeine before a workout is SUPER FUEL. SUPER FUEL is a sparkling natural energy drink crafted with plant-based caffeine and fortified with vitamins, minerals, nootropics, electrolytes, and antioxidants.
