Okay, so tonight I’m deviating from the VegNews ’31 Changes in 31 Days’… only because this has to be a quick post because tomorrow I have BOOT CAMP!!! We’re not running stairs tomorrow, so I’m very excited. We’re probably running, but oh well.
So far I’ve only tried the Pre-Workout Energizer stuff, hence my review.
I tried the lemon-lime flavor first on Tuesday, right before boot camp (well, 30 minutes before, because Vega recommends you chug it at least 20 minutes before you work out.) I thought it was going to be so gross, just because these things usually are, plus I wasn’t mixing the powder in cold water (even though it’s freezing outside, our tap water doesn’t get that cold.)
I was pleasantly surprised! The lemon-lime flavor didn’t taste amazing, but it tasted way better than I could have ever predicted. I was able to chug the drink in about 5 minutes, which was great because I was running late. I didn’t have any problems drinking it like I thought I would have, and I daresay I actually enjoyed it.
Overall, I would say Vega’s Pre-Workout Energizer is great – a 5/5 for sure. When I got to boot camp, my mind and body were both energized and I didn’t have that early morning lethargy like I normally do. If you’re interested in the ingredients, please check the Vega link above. From what I’ve read, the ingredients are natural and “good for you”– definitely nothing at all like chugging a Rockstar or Redbull before going to the gym. I felt clean and good and full of energy!
My review for the Performance Protein will come later– haven’t tried it yet but I will within the next couple of days!
Question for you all: Have you ever tried anything by Vega? Would you ever try a pre-workout energy mix?
