As everyone from endurance athletes to UFC champion Jon Jones have been drinking beet juice, I did some experiments of my own.
I’ve created the best pre-workout juice.
- 4 carrots
- 1 beet
- 2 lemons
- 1/2″ ginger
(If that’s too tart, add an apple.)
Beets are rich in nitrates, a vasodilator. My pumps in the gym have been insane.
I add a cocktail to my juice. Since your capillary system is wide open due to the beet juice, the supplements are better able to get into your muscles.
Blood of Life Workout Cocktail
- 10 grams of bran chain amino acids (BCAAs)
- 5 grams of l-glutamine
- 5 grams of creatine
Some guys (Fly Fresh and Young comes to mind) really love beta alanine. You could also add a couple of grams of citrulline malate.
I personally buy all my supplements in powder form. Just throw them into the juice, shake it up in a blender bottle, and rock ‘n roll.
