Y’all I feel bad……
As part of my affiliation as a SweatPink Ambassador I sometimes get the heads up on some pretty sweet deals. You might remember the tasty and delicious Vega bars I wrote about a bit ago. Well I also had the opportunity to try out their pre-workout drink mix as well, as part of their Fuel Your Better campaign.
**Disclosure: I received free Vega products to review, but all opinions expressed in this post are solely my own.
Vega is a great company that only uses the best ingredients (and actually REAL ingredients unlike a certain Other company I recently wrote about….ahem…Quest….). I won’t get into the nitty gritty details of their team but you should definitely go check out their website if you wanna know more.
I’ve got bad news though….I didn’t notice a difference….zero, zip, zilch. I might as well have been drinking straight up water (my fave). Take this with a grain of salt however. I have a high tolerance for most things. I don’t bother taking OTC meds like aspirin or ibuprofen b/c they don’t do anything for me. Caffeine’s a no-go as well. One time on a really long road trip with friends I took 2 5-hour energy shots to stay awake when it was my turn to drive and (spoiler alert) nothing….
I’ve been reading a lot of other bloggers reviews and they’ve had positive results, so either they’re all liars (not likely) or I’m the exception to the Vega pre-workout rule. I’m ok with that, I’m not a big fan of pre-workout anyway. Because of this, and to try and give y’all the best review possible I gave it to some of my lifter dude friends. They said the flavor was really girly (I got the acai berry flavor) but other than that they liked them.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, in my opinion the normal person doesn’t need products such as these to get a good work-out in. OR if they are used it shouldn’t be before Every workout but occasionally if you’re really draggin, but more sleep may be the real answer to your problem.
Anyone else use a pre-workout?
(and is it just me or does the very word pre-workout bring to mind body builders on roids?)
Also don’t forget the Secret Blogger Club link-up is next Monday! If you’ve linked up before you’ll be getting an email to remind you later this week. The theme is Fourth of July (duh). Make sure to spread the word! I look forward to growing the group 😀
