Pre workout gummies are helpful for intense exercise. But not all exercise is the same, so how do you take pre workout gummies effectively for different workouts? In this article, we’ll discuss how pre-workout gummies help and how to use them for four different exercises.
How Can Pre Workout Gummies Energize You Before a Workout?
You use energy stored in your muscles, called muscle glycogen, and energy in your blood from blood glucose when you exercise. The primary job of a pre workout gummy is to fill up your energy reserves in your muscles and blood. Think of your muscle glycogen as a battery. You use your muscle glycogen for the first ten minutes of intense exercise. As your muscle glycogen is used up, your body starts to pull energy, or glucose, from the blood. At forty-five minutes of exercise, your body uses equal amounts of energy from your muscles and blood, but your primary energy source is blood glucose after an hour. After 60 minutes of intense exercise, your body will start to replenish muscle glycogen if carbohydrates are available rapidly.
Using a pre workout gummy that gives you quick fuel for your blood in the form of high glycemic index (GI) carbohydrates as well as controlled release carbohydrates to keep that energy going is an effective way to work with your body, instead of against it, during exercise. Seattle Gummy offers a full range of workout gummies, including their Power Up pre workout with high GI and controlled-release carbohydrates. Mocca Shots provide high GI carbohydrates and nootropics like caffeine and ginkgo biloba to boost mental energy. Their Recover post workout gummy helps replenish muscle glycogen, which many athletes use during extended exercise.
Which Exercises Should You Take a Pre Workout Gummy Before?
With running, it’s essential to time your pre workout gummies so that you are giving your body the fuel it needs when it’s needed. Fuel up your tank with high GI and controlled-release carbohydrates before your run. Rev your engine right before with caffeine, nootropics, and high GI carbs to fill your bloodstream with fuel. When your body hits that first 60 minutes of exertion and starts replenishing its muscle glycogen, give it the high GI carbohydrates and BCAA it needs to recharge the batteries. Alternate with gummies that fast charge your blood glucose and gummies that boost your mental and physical energy with nootropics and high GI carbohydrates.
Victory is yours with the right combination of carbohydrates and nootropics to support performance. Start your game off with high GI and controlled-release carbohydrates. During half-game sessions, get quick energy and a mental boost with high GI carbohydrates and nootropics like ginkgo biloba. Restore your muscle “batteries” with high GI carbohydrates and BCAA during the break. After you’ve won, replenish your muscle glycogen with readily available high GI carbohydrates.
Before your CrossFit workout, grease your wheels with high GI and controlled-release carbohydrates. Take nootropics like caffeine and high GI carbohydrates during your workout to fight mental and physical fatigue. Restore your muscle glycogen after your workout with high GI carbohydrates.
Give your body lots of fuel before your workout with high GI and controlled-release carbohydrates. High GI carbohydrates “light your fire” while controlled release carbohydrates fuel it. Support your endurance and replenish your muscle glycogen with high GI carbohydrates an hour or two into your ride. Four hours into your ride, replenish your muscle energy stores again with readily available carbohydrates and use nootropics like B vitamins to increase energy production and support mental energy. After your ride, give your muscles glucose from high GI carbohydrates to replenish their energy stores.
