People are always on the lookout to burn the most fat possible while trying to maintain their muscle mass. It becomes increasingly tempting to mix fat burners with pre workout supplements. This can be a dangerous path for some, but for those that are willing to put in the time to read the label of their products, then it can be a very effective way to reach their goals.
Many pre workout supplements contain stimulants in them, so it is very important to make sure that you read the directions on whatever fat burner it is that you are going to take. There are numerous brands out there of nitric oxide supplements that do not contain any stimulants like straight caffeine, green tea, etc.
Taking nitric oxide, creatine, glutamine, BCAA powder, arginine, and a variety of other products that are meant to increase the efficacy of your workout, can be perfectly fine. The problem arises with some of these products out there that are also sources of energy. They are designed to not only give you a jolt of nutrients, but they are also designed to give you a energy burst. The primary way that they achieve this is by using Caffeine, 1,3-Dimethylamylamine, or yohimbine.
The problem is that some of the above ingredients are also present in your fat burners. This can create an environment in your body that is over stimulated. A fat burner already tries to max out the amount of these stimulants that they can so that they can be as effective as possible. When you take one of these stim-based pre workout formulas, you may be doubling up on these powerful products.
At the very least, this is going to overtax your system. At worst, it can cause massive medical issues for you. It’s always better to be safe than sorry. These products are designed with a certain use in mind. One idea is that you can use USPLabs Recreate, which is a low-stimulant fat burner, along with your favorite stimulant-based pre-workout drink such as Jack3d.
Mixing these two products together can be quite effective as long as you take the time to actually know what it is that you are putting into your body. This is always a good idea with any supplement stack situation that you find yourself in. It only takes a few moments of your time, but in the end it can end up keeping you healthy.
Usually a company that makes pre workout systems will create at least two versions. One of them will just contain the necessary ingredients to bring your workout to the next level. The other one puts in some extras in order to give an added boost of energy. There are customers that prefer their product one way or the other, so there is almost always at least two different versions of these products floating around. Make sure that you read the ingredient lists to make sure that there is no overlap.
You spend hours in the gym every week. It’s not that big of a deal to spend a few minutes looking over a list of what compounds are in your supplements before you take them. Just look at it as the tiny mental tax you pay in order to keep your body running at peak efficiency.
