Let’s talk pre-workout for weight loss.
Trainer Lindsey here! We’re about to get into the nitty-gritty about products that can help with your weight loss, one major one: pre-workout.
Okay so you’ve heard the hype about it I’m sure, but just to refresh, pre-workout is a supplement that you can take before your workout to boost your energy, enhance your focus, and help athletic performance.
But how do you know you’re getting the right one?
There’s a ton of pre-workout out there. And again, not all pre-workout is the same. Many products are catered to men and few have the benefits that really work to actually help women lose weight.
That bro-at-the-gym’s pre-workout isn’t catered to fit your personal needs. Men’s pre-workouts may have a ton of different stimulants, calories, and other ingredients you just don’t need.
So what are some things you should be looking for when selecting the best pre-workout for weight loss? Don’t worry I am here to help in any way that I can!
Let’s get into it!
Pre-workout and Weightloss
When it comes to weight loss, exercise and nutrition are key. A good pre-workout can help you fast track your results by helping you stay focused at the gym.
This is important considering you want to get the best workout possible. This also means that you will have more intention during your workout so you’ll be less likely to slack off or get tired, which can give you better results.
Having the focus and energy to get your workout done is so important. Just think about it. If you’re barely awake enough to go to the gym, you’ll get there and you’re most likely not going to get the best workout in.
You might be wondering if it’s also important for getting your weight down.
The answer is yes.
Here’s what things to look for in a pre-workout if your goals are weight loss focused:
Keep it low calorie.
There are a lot of pre-workouts that are low calorie, but there are also some that are pretty high in calories per serving.
Obviously, you don’t want to be taking in extra and unnecessary calories when you’re trying to go to the gym to burn it off. That makes all your hard work go to waste!
Don’t worry not all pre-workouts have that, just be careful to look at the nutritional facts when you’re checking that out. You need one that’s going to be low in calories and benefit you with the vitamins and nutrients that you need for a better ability to workout.
Watch out for added sugar.
Sugar can really inhibit your workouts. This is because simple carbs can cause dips in your bodies ability to regulate glucose. When blood sugar is high it can make you crash later.
Research shows that those consuming higher simple carbohydrates(sugar) experienced fatigue more often than those who didn’t. Fatigue is obviously not desirable when working out!
There is also a connection with spikes in sugar and the amount of belly fat you have. Spikes can be seen to cause more belly fat! Yikes!
Make sure you like the taste.
Okay, let’s think about this for a bit and be realistic, you’re not going to be able to keep up with anything that you don’t love, so you need to make sure that you like your pre-workout flavor.
Of course, it needs to be healthy too, but if you sacrifice taste completely then it’s not going to be something you’ll want to do long term.
Try to find something that tastes amazing and that supports your goals. My favorite pre-workout is IdealLean Pre-Workout. The flavors are super yummy and don’t have all the extra calories and sugar!
Most important of all: Weight loss-supporting ingredients:
Did you know that caffeine helps to burn calories even when you’re resting? It also works as an appetite suppressant which will help you to curb those cravings. (Another big part of losing weight.)
Not to mention it gives you the energy you need to get you through your workout. However, you need to be careful that you’re not taking above 400 mg, because you may experience some side effects such as nausea.
I recommend limiting yourself to two servings of pre-workout per day. Just don’t take it late in the day or at night. It will make it harder to fall asleep!
Green Tea Extract 50% EGCG
Tea that has a lot of catechins have been found to help with weight loss and burning fat. It also is a natural source of energy which means that it’s not going to make you feel as jittery.
Idealean pre-workout is specially formulated for women, which means it’s going to work the best for your body.
It is formulated with the just enough caffeine to make it effective but also with a fat burning blend and it comes in 5 super yummy flavors.
For those of you looking for a stimulant free pre-workout that doesn’t have caffeine, then we have three amazing flavors for them as well.
Use my favorite pre-workout to stay focused and motivated!
