Pre-Workouts (PWOs)

Pre-Workouts (PWOs)

Aug 7, 2012

          Hi Team Dragon Fit! See my post yesterday on the 5p’s.  For me, I have always said that first thing in the morning is the best time to workout.  In that way, I don’t have any excuses to miss it later in the day and let “life” get in the way.  Also, I always feel a sense of accomplishment after finishing a workout.  What a great way to start your day on a positive note! I won’t lie, it can be hard at times.  Especially, since I have 3 little kids, I might have been up late the night before getting them water or taking them to the bathroom, putting them back to bed after a bad dream, etc.  If your a parent, then you know the drill!  LOL! There were many mornings when I got up to push play with only 3 hours sleep.  It was tough.  Real tough!  Luckily, I learned about Pre-Workouts (PWO’s).  I have been using Beachbody’s Energy & Endurance (E&E).  I started taking this about 4 months ago and I got to say it is an excellent way to help give you a boost in the morning.  Well, you might be saying, can’t I just drink a Red Bull or drink some coffee?  You could, but you are also getting a lot of extra calories and sugars that you don’t need.  Also, a lot of people can’t help but add a lot of sugar and cream to their coffee which makes it very unhealthy.  The great thing about Beachbody’s E&E is that it has only 20 calories per serving and has no artificial ingredients or sweeteners.  Also, I like that there is no “crashing” later that you experience after drinking sodas or energy drinks. So, every morning before a hard workout (especially lift days and Insanity cardio days), I take 2 scoops and mix it in water as soon as I get up.  I usually wait about 20 mins to 30 minutes by doing some light stretching.  Then, I hit play.  I notice that after about 30 minutes I can feel it starting to hit my system.  It just helps lift that fog you feel...
