9 Pre-Workouts To Fuel A Sweaty Session

Caffeine. Many people can’t function without a morning cup to wake them up and improve their alertness — “Don’t talk to me until I’ve had my coffee.”

And it’s the same story for your workouts. Rather than drifting through your reps — not focusing on mind-muscle connection and not reaching your full potential — fuel your body with caffeine and notice the difference in your workout.

And there are scientific reasons why that’s the case. Our nutritionist Claire broke down the reasons why caffeine can benefit your workouts:

So now you’re all clear on the benefits of caffeine for exercise, it’s time to delve into some of our best pre-workouts.

Pre-Workout Gummies

Pre-workout gummies — the perfect entry into the pre-workout world. Caffeine has been seen to boost your alertness and increase your endurance, but that doesn’t necessarily need to be in a gym environment.

For a mid-morning boost (when you’ve already been to the kettle one too many times), a pre-workout gummy gives you a quick 20mg hit of caffeine — perfect to get you through that last morning meeting.

Pre-Workout Blend

Loaded with 150mg of caffeine and essential vitamins, this is a great way to power your body for a sweaty gym session. If it’s your first time, prepare for the tingles. But don’t worry, they’re normal. Also prepare to be wowed at your performance. It’s carefully designed with caffeine and vitamins B6, B12 and C to improve your alertness and endurance – you might not even recognise yourself.

Vegan Pre-Workout Powder

We couldn’t forget any vegans in the room.

Pre-Workout Gel

For ultimate convenience. Just like the days when you used to run around the playground with a Frube in hand. But these days it’s more like walking up to the gym doors with a squeezy sachet of pre-workout in your hand. And it’s just as exciting — especially once the 200mg of caffeine kicks in. Perfect for everyone, from athletes, to footballers, to weightlifters.

Pre-Workout Shot

This blend contains vitamin B12, beta alanine and citrulline, as well as 200mg of caffeine — all packed into a shot-sized bottle. There’s no need to scoop when you can shot your pre-workout. Throw it back and hit the gym — you’ll even be prepared for a heavy leg day.

Pure Caffeine Tablets

Pure caffeine. 200mg of pure caffeine. No fuss, literally just caffeine. Ideal if you don’t have time for a drink before your workout, or if you simply prefer to take the quick route. If you crave the tingles of beta alanine, they probably aren’t for you. But on the other hand, they’re just so convenient.

THE Pre-Workout

For the pre-workout aficionado. This is not to be messed with, and certainly not an entry-level pre-workout. Containing 200mg of caffeine and 3000mg of creatine, this is enough to knock your socks off and power you through the best workout of your life. Packed with all the fan favourites, including 4000mg of L-citrulline to improve athletic performance, vitamin B12 to improve alertness and beta-alanine for muscle endurance during high-intensity exercise. You’ll have the pre-workout tingles, and your brain will be left feeling alert and awake. This is your one-way ticket to new PBs.

THE Pump

And of course, for the gym night owls, a pre-workout with no added caffeine, but all the ingredients you need to fuel your session. The low-stimulant profile is perfect for those that want a pre-workout boost without the jitters, or being kept up all night.

Eddie Hall Pre-Workout

And keep your eyes peeled for the return of The Beast’s very own pre-workout. Rumours are it will be back soon… possibly in time for his big fight. With this pre-workout under your belt, you’ll be deadlifting half a tonne before you know it.


Take Home Message

It’s important that we remind you here that caffeine has an average half-life of four hours. Meaning it can stay in your system for roughly eight hours. If you’re a night-time trainer, we urge you to stay away from the pre-workouts with the highest caffeine levels. That’s it — you’ve been warned.
