  • How to Find Natural Pre Workout Supplements

    Natural Pre Workout Supplements Available with VitaLyte

    Sometimes I don't feel up to going to the gym. It can happen to all of us. But as I get older, exercise becomes more important to my body. If I'm to enjoy life in my thirties like I did in my teens and twenties, I need to go to the gym four or five times a week. As my life gets more hectic, however, sometimes I need a boost to get over the hump. That's why I've been utilizing the natural pre workout supplements from Vitalyte. I've had some bad experiences with energy boosters before, it's no secret that some leave you feeling like you just drank too much coffee. I don't want that; I can't be shaky and sweaty three hours after my workout. That's why recently I've been using Vitalyte's Chia Surge Energy Gel as well as their Tri-Phase Endurance Fuel. I like the energy gel because it has actual nutrients in it like palatinose, which is a complex sugar that your body consumes for sustained energy, and beta-alanine, a branched-chain amino acid that helps deter lactic acid build-up in your muscles and lets you work out longer without feeling sore. It's reassuring to know that I'm putting real nutrients into my body instead of just dumping in cane sugar and fifty times my daily recommended value of vitamin B.

    Vitalyte's Tri-Phase Endurance Fuel also skips out on needless sugars and sweeteners so your body gets what it needs without getting the garbage included in so many other natural pre workout supplements. That's not to say that the endurance fuel is hard to get down; I've really enjoyed the watermelon-flavored variety, and for those of you who, for some unthinkable reason, don't like watermelon, there is also a mandarin orange flavor. And both the energy gel and endurance fuel contain electrolytes in more finely-balanced quantities than you'll find in run-of-the-mill sports drinks. Your body requires electrolytes, which is just a fancy word for the salt ions in a solution, in order to replenish what it loses when you do physical work. Water alone won't do it - your body demands sodium and potassium ions in order to keep your circulatory and nervous systems in working order. And Vitalyte's products have just the right amount both for your pre-workout and post-workout drinks. Ultimately, that's what sets Vitalyte's products apart and why I prefer them before every workout, they contain the real nutrients your body needs without the filler.

    Being an endurance athlete encompasses a lot of things. One that usually doesn't get touched is building a base with strength training.

Here is a look at one of my basic training workouts.

    It is very important to continue strength training during your season to help decrease your chance of injury. During the season I lighten up on the weights I lift and use more body weight exercises...in case you were wondering. Hope you enjoy it!
    Until next time,
    Jamie
