For the past 5 years or so I have been trying many different pre workout supplements, hoping to find the one that most effective and safe. I’ve tried Jack3d, 1MR, White Flood, Cellucor C4, NO-Explode, Black Powder, and Superpump, but I found something that I didn’t like about each of them. About 2 years ago Beachbody came out with a new pre-workout supplement called E&E, and I have been taking it pretty much every day since! It is my top pre workout supplement 2013.
So what was wrong with the other pre workout supplements? Let’s start with Jack3d. From the research I have done, Jack3d has been on the hot seat lately and in the news because of it possibly being linked to a few deaths. I used to use it in the past, and actually liked it because of the crazy amount of energy that I got from it during the workouts, but stopped because of the controversial ingredients that it contained. I’m pretty sure it’s even banned in Canada now because of one particular ingredient, and I’ve heard rumors the U.S. is trying to ban it as well. I also didn’t like it, though, because I experienced a terrible “crash” afterwards. I would feel pumped up during my workout, but come an hour after I finished, all I wanted to do is lay on the couch and not move for the rest of the day. On top of that, I couldn’t stop sweating post workout. However, in the end I stopped taking it because I didn’t want to risk it something happening to me. Oh and also, if I ever took Jack3d in the late afternoon, I would have the toughest time getting to sleep that night! I would have to take it in the morning. When it’s all said and done, I would NOT rank Jack3d up there with the top pre workout supplement 2013.
Another one of the pre workout supplements is 1MR. I used to love 1MR, but the “crash” that I experienced after my workout was FAR WORSE than the one I experienced with Jack3d, so I stopped taking that as well. It was so bad that I would be completely spaced out for the rest of the day after my workout, not just tired. I felt like I got hit by a truck! However, out of all the supplements that I tested, it was the one that gave me the most energy during my workouts. If it wasn’t for the crash, I would put it up there with the other top pre workout supplement 2013, but that severely hurts its rank for me.
With the other pre workout supplements that I mentioned above, I had very strange reactions to them. With Black Powder, C4, and White Flood, I had TERRIBLE acne breakouts, something that I never experience, and when I stopped taking them, the acne stopped. I tried to figure out the ingredients that they each had in common, but wasn’t able to do so. In all honesty, they weren’t that effective anyways. With Superpump I would get bad stomach cramps during my workout, and that was enough to make me stop using it. NO-Explode was actually my favorite supplement to take before my workout for a long time, but they changed the formula for it and tried to make it more like Jack3d. Just like with Jack3d, I got that dang tingly feeling all over my body shortly after I used it. After doing research on that one, I stopped using it as well.
Anyways, I was excited to find out a few years ago that Beachbody was coming out with a new pre workout supplement because I absolutely love the quality of all their supplements. Their best supplement, Shakeology, I’ve been using every day for the past 3 years. Anyways, with E&E, I take it about 20 minutes before my workout and usually start feeling the effects about 10 minutes in (I just took it about 10 minutes ago so I’m starting to feel the effects now). My energy increases, I don’t get nauseated, and I always experience a great pump during my workouts, and that lasts the entire time. After the workout, I NEVER have experienced a “crash” like I had with the other workouts, and that’s great because I can carry on with my day without feeling like I need to go to bed! I have even taken it late quite a few times and haven’t had any issues sleeping. E&E is definitely my top pre workout supplement 2013!
When it all comes down to it, I would name E&E as the best pre-workout supplement of this year. There’s a reason I’ve been taking it before my workouts for 2 years! As with any supplement, though, ALWAYS do your research to make sure it’s safe and is high quality. As I always say, when it comes to something you’re putting into your body, quality is not something you want to sacrifice!
