After running around like a bat out of hell with my two children all day it’s safe to say that I’m not always at my best for energy levels by the time that I get to the gym which is why I rely on pre-workout shakes to perk me up prior to exercise. Pre-workouts are designed to increase energy levels, muscle power and endurance and this beauty from Boditronics certainly does all that and then some!
Titled as an ‘extremely potent pre-workout enhancer’ my huge 640g tub will see me through two whole months of training based on four workouts per week at 20g per scoop which I mix into 250ml of water in my shaker and drink 30-45mins prior to exercise. This is the fizziest pre-workout I’ve tried as it contains sodium bicarbonate which is effervescent and fizzes like a new bottle of pop when you take the lid off after shaking it up so it’s wise to release the lid slowly.
Compared to other pre-workouts the flavour isn’t in-your-face-fruity or sugary sickly like most, but more a modestly mild and slightly floral weak squash. Being vegetarian and vegan friendly at 43kcal per serving with 8.3g of protein and 2.6g of carbs Red Mist delivers a sucker-punch of Taurine, Creatine and caffeine that had my fingers tingling and my feet going faster than Road Runner on the treadmill for my entire 5km cardio session, free weights and walk home after. It leaves me feeling lighter than air and satisfyingly maximised my results with the biggest grin on my face. How refreshing to find a UK-manufactured brand that does exactly what it says on the tin with absolutely no need for a second scoop.
