Sometimes, just sometimes, we need that little extra boost of energy before a workout and this week, we’re coming to the rescue with our best Primal pre-workout drink recipe. With only 3 ingredients, it really is the quickest and most convenient pre-workout drink that you can make straight after a workout or best yet, prepare beforehand.
To make this the most effective pre-workout Primal drink, we’ve combined some of our best Primal fitness supplements with some well-nourished food ingredients. As a rule of thumb, it’s best to consume some form of natural carbohydrates – Primal carbohydrates, that is - before a workout, as well as a fitness supplement or two to help aid your performance. With that said we’ve included banana, coconut water, and Muscle 5x.
One of the best sources of potassium, bananas are an important mineral that can help fight fatigue and enabled our body’s enzymes to control energy production. Banana’s are also high in magnesium (great for muscles and nerves) and vitamins B1, B2, B3 and B6, which all help to convert your food into energy which makes it great as a pre-workout treat. This process of converting the food into energy also helps reduce the well-known midday slump and increase physical performance.
Coconut water is Potassium-rich and is one of nature’s best isotonic drinks. It makes for a natural sports drink because it helps aid hydration and boosts your energy before a workout. It can also help fight fatigue naturally and some people swear by drinking it first thing in the morning. Although, we’d suggest drinking it whenever!
Our muscle 5x includes five powerful ingredients to improve muscle function and to boost physical performance. If you're a regular gym goer, you'll probably be familiar with these ingredients already - L-Arginine HCL, Arginine Alpha-Ketoglutarate, Creatine, Dipotassium Phosphate and Niacin - renowned for their muscle building properties. The creatine included supplies our muscles with greater energy supplies to maximise your power output and in order for you to make the most out of your workout. As for the BCAA complex, this will help increase the rate and capacity of muscle growth, increase efficiency, energy and will provide better alert levels.
As a whole, and including the above, our Muscle 5x will aid recovery, reduce fatigue by converting glucose for energy, improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation.
So instead of those artificially flavoured and high-processed pre-workout shop bought drinks, give this quick, fresh and all-natural recipe a go and let me know what you think! Interested in a post-workout drink? Find our favourite recipe here!
