Now, before you get confused and wonder when you should take Pre JYM or not before workouts, I’m not suggesting that you stop taking it pre-workout.
What I’m saying is that the “Pre-Workout” supplement category has become so watered down with worthless ingredients, while grossly underdelivering the beneficial ones, and so overpacked with stimulant-based formulas that it’s a shame to put Pre JYM in the same category as a typical pre-workout.
Most pre-workouts don’t supply adequate doses of critical ingredients like BCAAs, beta-alanine, betaine, creatine, and cutrilline malate for measurable results. And many others don’t supply them at all!
How to Use Pre JYM Most Effectively
The other problem is that most pre-workouts are also used haphazardly by people who only take the product before workouts and don’t touch it on rest days. Or worse, some pre-workouts are used like an energy drink and are just taken at random times, but not consistently. There’s little point in wasting your money and treating Pre JYM this way.
Due to the ingredients in Pre JYM building up in the body and having long-lasting benefits, it’s not something you just want to take on workout days. Pre JYM should be a seven-days-a-week supplement.
So again, calling Pre JYM a “pre-workout” falls short of what it really is. If taken daily for several weeks, Pre JYM will not only be giving you more pick-up, focus, strength, endurance, and pump for each workout, but it will be helping you add long-term muscle mass, strength, and endurance as well.
The Creatine and Beta-Alanine Thresholds
While ingredients like caffeine, tyrosine, BCAAs, citrulline malate, alpha-GPC, and huperzine A provide immediate benefits to a workout when you take Pre JYM, it’s the creatine and beta-alanine, namely, that need to be taken consistently for several weeks to be beneficial. There’s a threshold for each of these ingredients that the muscle must reach before it can provide any benefit.
When you take Pre JYM every day, it raises the levels of creatine and beta-alanine in muscle cells. Creatine gains a high-energy phosphate to become creatine phosphate (CP) in muscle cells. Beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. It’s the CP that provides the muscle more explosive energy to lift more weight. And it’s carnosine that buffers the acidity of the muscle cells to allow them to contract with more force for longer.
Taking one dose, or even two or three doses, of creatine or beta-alanine won’t be enough to raise levels in the muscle high enough to see noticeable results. It takes dozens of doses, and often 2 to 4 weeks before you see the true benefit of ingredients like creatine and beta-alanine. That’s why you need to take creatine and beta-alanine every day (not just on training days) for several weeks to see optimal results.
Pre JYM + Post JYM: Perfect Synergy
The good news is that both creatine and beta-alanine are better taken up by the body when supplied in two different doses throughout the day, preferably pre-workout and post-workout. That’s why I included both creatine and beta-alanine in Post JYM as well as Pre JYM.
Post JYM is not only designed to enhance your recovery following workouts – it’s also designed to work in synergy with Pre JYM. Taking creatine and beta-alanine before and after every workout will raise your levels of creatine and beta-alanine in the muscle faster, and it will also ensure that your trained muscles stay saturated and don’t dip below that threshold.
If you’ve ever switched from taking Pre JYM and Post JYM consistently to another brand of pre-workout, you’ve likely noticed a dip in your training intensity and results while using the other product. One reason is due to the dip you get in muscle creatine and carnosine levels, not to mention being underdosed in many other ingredients. This fact has driven many JYM customers back to Pre JYM and made them lifetime customers.
So, before you go calling Pre JYM just a “pre-workout,” remember that it’s also a true muscle-gainer, strength-builder, and endurance-booster when taken properly. It’s the reason why so many swear by Pre JYM, as well as Post JYM. And it’s the reason why the formula has lasted nearly a decade and why so many have attempted to copy it.
There’s only ONE Pre JYM!
