Our Top 3 PRE-WORKOUT Smoothies!

There are many pre-workout products on the market that are said to give you that extra boost just before you hit the gym, but do they really work? Are they worth the money you pay?

Before I met my competition coach, I was a strong believer that without a branded pre-workout product, my workout would fall flat and I’d end up feeling unsatisfied with my performance. However during my competition prep, I was told to change my powdered pre-workout for something more natural which provides nutritional benefits as well as an energy boost.

Here are a few I tried:

Go bananas!

100ml - Unsweetened Almond Milk

20g - PhD Diet Whey Strawberry

20g - Peanut Butter

½ - Banana

Blend and enjoy!
