Everyone’s running a mile a minute – sometimes literally! We’re multitasking, pulling long hours in the office, at the club and in the gym. Often that means you’re reaching for an energy-boosting drink or supplement to help keep you going at all hours day and night.
The original energy drink was coffee, and it has many benefits. Soon after came energy drinks followed by pre-workouts. Coffee has its place, and for many it has a comfort component to it as well (can you say Starbuck’s venti cold brew?). Energy drinks also have their purpose and place, and they’re wildly popular. Do energy drinks have a place in the world of healthy fitness? For the standard energy drink, in most cases the answers “no”.
Much research has been done on pre-workouts, coffee and energy drinks. Here’s a simple breakdown:
Energy Drinks are designed exactly for that – energy and if you read the label of many energy drinks, they’re often 2.5 servings…. sooooo multiply the strong ingredients they already have 2.5 times and ask yourself how healthy that is. Energy drinks are not clinically formulated for exercise and often contain fillers, ingredients of no value to exercise or performance and can cause crash after the high of the stimulants wear off.
Pre-workouts are specifically designed for fitness. The clinically-studied ingredients generate energy, focus, power, endurance – they’re designed to boost your performance, not just stimulate you, and in the case of Warp 5, they do this without the crash.
