If you’ve spent any time in a gym in the past decade, you’re probably familiar with the benefits of a good pre-workout supplement.

You know, things like increased strength, endurance, and power, and heightened energy, mood, and focus. 

You’re probably also familiar with their downsides—energy crashes, disrupted sleep, jitters, nausea, indigestion, and more. 

Even if you haven’t encountered these problems, you’ve probably noticed that your pre-workout supplement has become less effective over time as your body becomes desensitized to caffeine. 

All of these issues have given rise to the topic of this podcast: stim-free pre-workout supplements. 

While the idea of taking a stimulant-free pre-workout might seem ridiculous at first blush (aren’t stimulants the whole point?), there are a few reasons you should consider doing so: 

  1. They will boost your workout performance, although not quite as much as pre-workouts containing stimulants.
  2. They’ll help you avoid many of the negative effects of regular pre-workouts.
  3. They’ll help you maximize the benefits of regular pre-workouts when cycled properly (keep listening to learn how). 

So, if you want to learn more about the benefits of pre-workout supplements, how to choose the best one for you, and how to use them to maximize your performance in the gym, this podcast is for you.
