There is a lot of hype about different pre-training as many people share their experiences and positive results. While these hints can be justified, people often only talk about how it makes their training harder, lasts longer and lifts heavier weights. This can cause people to wonder when determining what is active and how and why it works. This article aims to fill in the gaps in pre-training formulas and help you decide what is right for you.

Pre-training formulas are usually made based on arginine (pre-cursor for nitric oxide) or beta alanine, although many may contain both.


What's that?

Arginine is an essential amino acid that is a precursor to NO2 nitric oxide. It is considered important because the body can produce some arginine but usually it is not enough and therefore must be consumed through diet. This is especially true for people who exercise.

What is she doing?

Arginine has various bodybuildings and health benefits but is used primarily in pre-exercise formulas because of its ability to expand blood vessels (vasodilatation).

Usually 'hit the wall' or muscle fatigue in the gym is said to be caused by lactic acid. However, this is not always the case, it usually builds up hydrogen ions and subsequently decreases the pH responsible for fatigue and decreased physical performance during exercise. This is where beta-alanine becomes useful. Beta-alanine is able to withstand acidity caused by hydrogen accumulation.

  • Work synergistically with creatine

Pre-exercise formulas are often (but not always) mixed with stimulants to combine the increase in amino acid performance with mental stimulation. The most popular stimulants are caffeine and 1, 3 dimethylamylamine (geranium stem, MMDA).
