Just Wednesday I received my package from BodyBuilding.com.
What did I order? Protein of course!
However, this packaging was a little different. This time BodyBuilding sent me a few goodies.
No, it wasn’t the men’s hair products (though I am pretty tempted to try them out). It was the small package of pre-workout. BPI Sports 1.M.R Vortex to be exact.
Now, all I know about pre-workouts is that they give you a serious boost. Looking back, a few of my workouts would have been a lot better if I had something to give me energy.
As I was about to take it, my sister convinced me to read more about it and also check out reviews. I turned to the one place I go to every time I need a review on a product: BodyBuilding.com. All the reviews pretty much said the same two words “tunnel vision.”
Tunnel vision? The only time I heard this phrase was in a Justin Timberlake song.
Turns out this pre-workout makes you focused on your workout and gives you the energy to finish.
But for someone like me who isn’t accustomed to having caffeine on a regular it could have crazy effects.
For example, a medium cup of coffee can get me going for hours. One time I took it at 3pm and was up in my bed at 3am staring at the ceiling, wondering why the heck I drank it.
What will I do?
On the next leg day I think I’ll give this pre-workout a shot. Of course I’ll have to do it early in the morning so that I won’t have to count sheep throughout the night.
What do you guys think? Do you think pre-workouts are a good idea? And do you take them?
I’d love to know!
