Stimulant Based

Many people need a coffee to get them going in the morning. It’s no different for those who train. By using a stimulant-based pre-workout supplement, you can get yourself ready to go quicker. While all pre-workout supplements are likely to have ingredients in common, such as certain amino acids and other compounds, there are some that also contain stimulants. These stimulants boost your metabolism, promote the release of fats into the system for energy use, and generally enhance exercise performance through increased alertness and focus.

The main stimulant used in these supplements is caffeine – familiar to tea and coffee drinkers all around the world. The benefits of caffeine include the following: • Increased levels of certain neurotransmitters such as dopamine, serotonin, norepinephrine and others. • Greater levels of alertness / wakefulness, through stimulation of the nervous system. • Increases in the metabolic rate, which may promote fat burning. • Clearer and faster thought-flow. • Better focus and bodily co-ordination. • An increase in blood flow to the muscles. • Greater motor activity. For these reasons, a moderate dose of caffeine can help to improve exercise performance, and help you to more easily reach your fitness targets and goals.

People who are more sensitive to caffeine are more likely to benefit from these effects. It’s also important to note that sensitivity can decrease with exposure, and it may be necessary to regularly alternate stimulant-based supplements with those that are stimulant-free. Another stimulant used in some supplements is tyrosine – an amino acid that acts as a precursor to dopamine and norepinephrine. Tyrosine may improve concentration and also promote your body’s capacity for fat burning. Stimulant-based pre-workout supplements may be beneficial depending on an individual’s goals, and budget. They should always be used according to directions, and in conjunction with sensible dietary intake. To buy pre-workout supplements online, check out our fantastic range.
