Welcome back to Chat Sh*t Get Fit - Chatting Supplements. This week we get our pump on and talk all things pre-workout. We discuss our own usage as well as some of the listeners and then follow it up by taking a closer look at some common ingredients found in some well-known pre-workouts.


We focus on 

  • Beta-alanine (Tingle city)

  • Caffeine 

  • L-Citrulline/Citrulline malate

  • Taurine

  • Creatine

  • B-Vits

  • Bonus ingredients such as ElevATP

In regards to pre-workout inclusion, it's a bit of a mixed bag on this one. An example is a creatine. It's great if taken daily with the correct dosage but if you only consume creatine in your pre-workout and only use it on heavy sessions it's actually doing nothing at all due to it needing to be taken chronically for effect.


By the end, though you should be able to make a more informed decision which one will be best for you or if you need one at all!
