What Pre-Workout is Right for me?

Pump enhancers, stimulant- free, energy boosting, there’s so many options when it comes to pre-workout, but which is right for you? Well, before selecting the perfect pre-workout, it’s important to understand the different types that are available so you can make the correct decision that fits your fitness needs.  The first question to ask yourself is do you want one with stimulants or a non-stimulant option to support your energy and performance. 

Without a doubt, Stimulant Based Pre-Workouts are the most popular choice to enhance training.  These give you an added energy boost you need to get going and keep going from comprehensive range of performance boosting ingredients that include caffeine.  Products like ENGN and ENGN Shred include caffeine which comes from natural energizers such as Green Tea Extract and Green Coffee Beans. Additional benefits from both of these include a vitamin complex, ingredients to improve mental focus as well as others to increasing your overall performance, endurance and blood flow. The main differences between ENGN and ENGN Shred are the fat burning ingredients which only ENGN Shred contains. So, if you are someone who needs that extra kick of energy but also looking to burn some fat and turn up the intensity, ENGN Shred is right for you.  Those just looking for an overall effective energy boost without the crash and to improve their strength and performance, ENGN Pre-workout will be an ideal choice.

Option two, Non-Stimulant Pre-Workouts. These are versatile and great options for workouts closer to bedtime, or for those who are caffeine sensitive.  Many of the best non-stimulant pre-workouts contain ingredients focused on increasing muscle pumps and blood flow to boost workouts.  This includes EVL’s non-stimulant pre-workouts PUMPMODE and BEETMODE.  These products contain no caffeine and are designed to drive overall performance and deliver the “rock hard” pump by boosting Nitic Oxide.   The main difference between PUMPMODE and BEETMODE, is PUMPMODE utilizes concentrated pure Betaine Nitrite which comes from beets, while BEETMODE utilizes natural crystalized beets to stimulate nitric oxide in the body which relaxes the smooth inner muscles of blood vessels, widening them and increasing circulation and blood flow to your muscles. It’s one of the most powerful performance boosting elements that not only fuels muscle pumps, but also enhances vascularity and oxygen levels to boost performance and endurance.

Which route do you take when it comes to these products? If you are looking for a natural ingredient-based product with natural sweeteners choose BEETMODE.  If you want to take increased pumps to the next level with more comprehensive circulation and muscle pump support, PUMPMODE also includes the ingredient Hydromax for muscle hydration that fills muscles, plus key vitamins and antioxidants help preserve nitric oxide and maximize the pump effect.

Although there are many great options for pre-workout the energy boosting, or pump enhancers may not be for you. Which is why we have alternative options that work great as a pre-workout themselves. One of the best products is BCAA Energy. BCAA Energy is an anytime energy supplement that has 5 grams of branched chain amino acids and other endurance supporting aminos combined with less than half the amount of caffeine per serving of a traditional pre-workout, but plenty in combination with BCAA Energy’s other ingredients. It can be taken before or during your workout to keep you going and it has been formulated with a vitamin complex and other active ingredients to help your body recover throughout the day. BCAA Energy is also great for cardio workouts and endurance exercise. No matter which route you take, we have readily available each type of product discussed above as well as additional products you can learn more about here, EVL’s Pre-Workout Products.
