Workout Supplements and How To Incorporate Them Into Your Daily Routine

Talk about workout supplements has been on the rise recently within the fitness community and it comes to no surprise that many people are interested in incorporating them into their daily routine! Although supplements are not necessary to see results in the gym, they can give you that extra boost to push you even closer to your goals. Two of the most common workout supplements are Pre-Workout and Amino Acid’s (BCAA’s):


Pre-Workout incorporates caffeine and all of your daily vitamins into ONE to give you all the energy and strength you need to push through that last set. Pre-workout typically comes in a powdered form that you mix into water, or you can find them canned in stores like GNC and the Vitamin Shoppe. It is generally recommended that you drink your pre-workout 10-15 minutes before beginning your workout. 

Benefits of Pre-Workout: 

  • Prevents premature fatigue

  • Reduces protein break down

  • Increases athletic performance

  • Increases metabolism 

  • Simulates your central nervous system

Branched Chain Amino Acids: 

More commonly known as BCAA’s, this supplement is great for those who are not looking to intake caffeine as most contain 0 mg per serving. BCAA’s are a group of three vital amino acids, leucine, isoleucine and valine. These amino acids cannot be produced by our body and must be sourced from our food OR supplements. Along with Pre-Workout, BCAA’s also come in powder form which is then mixed with water. It is generally recommended that you take your BCAA’s either directly before or after your workout. 

Benefits of BCAA’s:

  • Boosts muscle growth and recovery

  • Reduce fatigue after exercise

  • Reduce muscle soreness

  • Lower blood sugar levels

  • Enhance fat-loss

  • Reduce complications in the liver
