2. Add A Pre-Workout To Boost Your Focus
Preparing yourself mentally and physically for a workout can help you bring maximum focus and energy to the session. So can having the right pre-workout. If you have yet to try a pre-workout, what are you waiting for?
One ingredient to look for is beta-alanine, which has been consistently suggested to increase muscle power output, strength, training volume, high-intensity exercise performance, and peak oxygen uptake (aerobic capacity). Specifically, beta-alanine seems most effective for supporting exercise lasting longer than 60 seconds.
“I recommend taking it for a high-intensity bodybuilding-style training program, HIIT or interval training, CrossFit, or all-out bouts to exhaustion that last 1-5 minutes, with short rest periods of less than 2 minutes,” says Chris Lockwood, PhD, Bodybuilding.com’s adjunct supplements editor.
