Made by Glanbia in American facilities, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre Workout is a fairly balanced pre-workout product that ticks all the boxes for what a multi-functional pre-workout should do. Suitable for novice athletes without a lot of pre-workout experience, Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre Workout will help support nitric oxide production for pumps, help to enhance your endurance and energy levels, as well as support focus in between sets. However, it is important to note that the concentration of ingredients contained in the supplement are not stellar- far from it in fact, even though you can consume 2 scoops prior to your workout. The inclusion of adaptogenic ginseng could further help to reduce the effect cortisol could have on performance and subsequent hypertrophy, making it interesting in this aspect. All in all, a fair choice when trying to figure out exactly what works for you and what doesn’t before transiting to a more potent goal-specific preworkout option.
Mix each scoop with 6-8 oz of water and consume 20-30 minutes before training. Start with 1 scoop or less to assess your tolerance. DO NOT EXCEED 2 SCOOPS PER DAY.
