When should you be taking your pre workout?

Pre workout is a great way to start your workouts because it gives users more energy when exercising meaning they can train at a higher intensity for longer. But, do you know when you should be taking your pre workout?

If you aren’t sure, don’t worry, I’m here to tell you when the best time to take your pre workout is and watch your workouts transform in the process!

A staple ingredient in pre workout is caffeine and because of this, it takes effect in about 30 minutes meaning that your energy levels will have increased. Therefore, the ideal time for you to take your pre-workout is 30-60 minutes before your workout so you can maximize the energy you gain from this to get the best out of your workout. 

Caffeine can take effect anywhere between 3 and 7 hours, meaning after this time, half the caffeine can still be in your system. Of course, everyone’s body is different and the amount of caffeine in someone’s system can vary between individuals with some feeling the effects for longer than others. Therefore, be cautious when consuming pre workout in the hours before you go to bed if you prefer to workout at night, especially for those who are more sensitive to caffeine. 

Having your pre workout 30-60 minutes before your session gives enough time for it to get into your bloodstream and give you the benefits you’re looking for that will enhance your workouts.
