How to put more ‘work’ into your workout

You asked:

I train in the afternoon or early evening, but I often get to the gym feeling tired after a long day at work. What can I do to ensure I get the most from my
training session?

We answer:

A Pre-workout supplements are specifically formulated to give you a boost before a workout. The right product with the right combination of ingredients both increases energy and boosts strength.

For example, nitric oxide, a common ingredient in pre-workouts, naturally dilates blood vessels, allowing more blood to flow to working muscles. This delivers more fuel to the muscle and also helps to speed up the rate of recovery.

Many pre-workouts also contain stimulants, such as caffeine, citrus aurantium or dendrobium, which have been shown to provide a boost when used in the correct dosage.

Other compounds may also be included, such as amino acids like N-acetyl L-tyrosine which is a precursor to the natural synthesis of powerful neurotransmitters such as epinephrine (adrenalin), norepinephrine (noradrenalin) and dopamine, which all give your body a boost in energy.
