If you’re unfamiliar with what these supplements are intended to do, don’t worry we’ll cover that quickly now before moving on. A pre-workout supplement contains ingredients that are intended to improve your performance in the gym. Typically this is done by using stimulants (caffeine is commonly used) or dilatants that expand the blood vessel to allow for increased flow.
So back to the question, how do they benefit you? Well it really depends on the type of ingredients in the supplement. That’s why with pre-workout supplements in particular it’s usually a good idea to see what other people have felt after using the product.
Are There Any Risks?
I know many people (both male and female) who try to stay away from supplements because they are afraid they might be dangerous. In some cases they are right, but most supplements in general are safe to use. However, it is up to you to know exactly what you’re putting in your body and paying attention to how you feel. If you have a negative reaction to a supplement STOP USING IT! I know it’s common sense for most people but some people continue to use it thinking that the advantages outweigh any side effects.
In general the most dangerous thing in pre workout supplements is also found in coffee, which is caffeine. Most supplements have around the same amount in 1 cup of coffee, but some actually contain much more, so you need to watch your intake and not overuse the supplements.
So what are the best pre workout supplements for women? Well they’re the same ones as the products for men.
