Pre-workout supplements are designed to help you push through intense workouts. Ingredients like vitamin B12 are often added, contributing to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. Pre-workouts come in powder, tablet or capsule form and typically contain caffeine, creatine, BCAAs and other specialised ingredients depending on the product. The best time to take a pre-workout is around 30-60 minutes before training.
Taking a pre-workout shake or tablet is a great way to get the nutrition you need for all kinds of intense training, whether it’s a heavy lifting session or an endurance run out on the trails. They can be especially useful early in the morning or late at night when you need that extra motivation to get out there and tackle those training goals.
The amount of time a pre-workout can last depends on several factors, such as the specific ingredients, their strength, and how sensitive you are to them (regular users of pre-workout supplements may build up a tolerance to caffeine, for example). Pre-workouts, however, are made to last throughout your workout, so you can generally expect the effects to last for around 1.5-2.5 hours or longer.
