It can be difficult sometimes to find the energy and motivation to get in a workout.
If you’re in need of a lift, a pre-workout like NPL Amino Burn can help give you the energy and focus you need to crush your training session!
The right way to use a pre-workout
Always take your pre-workout exactly when it says: ‘PRE’ workout. That means 20-30 minutes before you train. Mix your pre-workout powder with 200-300ml of water and drink up.
To test your tolerance, start with half of a scoop or less. If you feel the pre-workout’s effects after only half a scoop, then stick to that dosing strategy! For those of you who aren’t as sensitive, you may need a little more. Bump it up to a scoop and keep adding until you reach a full dose to find what works for you. Just don’t exceed two scoops of pre-workout a day!
Dispelling common pre-workout misconceptions
There are quite a few misconceptions associated with pre-workout supplements for women. Here’s what you need to know:
1. Pre-workouts are only for men
Both men and women can benefit from using a pre-workout for increased energy and to help improve the quality of your exercise session. NPL Amino Burn is a great pre-workout for women as it helps you burn fat while you work out, and amino acids to help you recover!
2. Pre-workout will make it harder for me to sleep at night
You’ll find caffeine in most pre-workouts, so using one of these products could make it harder for you to sleep at night, but that depends on how your body reacts to and metabolises this compound.
It also matters how much additional caffeine you consume every day from other sources such as coffee and fat burners.
A good starting point to determine how your body reacts to a pre-workout is to take it earlier in the day. You’ll also want to start off with half of a scoop until you get a better idea of how your body responds. Gradually increase to a full scoop as needed.
Amino Burn contains specific ingredients to help you with energy and mental focus to get you through the day, so we advise taking it earlier!
3. Pre-workout will make me jittery
It is important to read the label to confirm the caffeine content in your pre-workout. Some products include excessive amounts of caffeine, which causes those jittery feelings.
Rather opt for products that contain a blend of ingredients and amino acids to deliver the right amount of focus and energy without the crash! NPL Amino Burn is specifically formulated to do just that!
