Pre-Workout drinks are formulated to boost your performance, increase energy, give you a more vascular pump, and improve your focus. Of the many ingredients that help achieve these effects, caffeine is one of the most used ingredients in all pre-workouts.
Caffeine is the most important ingredient to YOU because that really determines the “intensity” and choosing the right amount of caffeine per serving will make the perfect pre-workout experience.
SCIENCE TIME: Caffeine stimulates the nerve cells in your brain keeping adenosine from entering and making you drowsy or sleepy. This will boost your mental alertness and push back feeling fatigued. Overall, caffeine will get you jacked up for a workout which is why it is used in almost every pre-workout formula.
How much caffeine should you consume? To understand caffeine, your normal cup of Joe is about 100mg of caffeine per 8 fl oz.
