Pre Workout FAQ’s
Is pre-workout actually healthy?
Pre-workouts are a supplement and as such are not necessary for performance. However, when buying from trusted brands, most pre-workouts are safe for healthy adults to take their training to the next level.
Do beginners need pre-workout?
Pre-workouts are not ever necessary and as a beginner, you should focus on consistency and a proper diet to manage your energy and health. Then add in pre-workouts later when you are more experienced.
Is it better to take pre-workout or creatine?
This entirely depends on your goals. If you want to have more energy and focus when you workout then pre-workout would be your go-to. If you want faster muscle recovery and to lift heavier sooner, then creatine is a better option.
Who shouldn’t take pre-workout?
In general, people with cardiovascular conditions should not take pre-workouts. This is because pre-workouts are a stimulant and, although healthy for most individuals, could cause issues for people with existing cardiovascular conditions. Be sure to check with your doctor if you have any concerns about taking pre-workout. Also, read Discover Magazines article on 18 side effects you should be aware of for more information on this topic.
