Typically you’d take a pre-workout supplement prior to a workout or game. That makes sense because, well, it’s called a pre-workout! Thing is, it’s also not a law that’s written in stone. In fact, changing things up every so often is a good idea. Why? Because in the same way your body will adapt to the same exercise regimen, it’ll adapt to your supps.
How can you prevent this from happening with P4 workout supplements? Simple — shake up the order in which you take them. Aside from being NSF Certified for Sport, which means their ingredients don’t violate the substances tested by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), P4’s Pre Game Formula, Energy Formula, and Recovery Push Formula were engineered to be mixed and matched based on your needs.
For example, if you wanted a break from the “pins and needles” feeling of beta-alanine and creatine in Pre Game Formula, you can switch over the Energy Formula as your pre-workout or pre-game drink. Or alternate the days in which you take them.. And if you typically take Energy Formula in-game, try Recovery Push Formula instead. Along with being a terrific option to take during the latter parts of a game or workout because it provides you with energy-boosting ingredients like a fast-digesting carb loader and BCAAs, Recovery Push Formula’s vitamin matrix contains vitamins C, B1, B2, B6, B12, A, E, D3, and B5 as well as electrolytes to supply a steady flow of energy while also initiating your body’s recovery process. Another option: toss some into your post-workout protein shake.
Also, there’s no reason to reserve the use of P4 sports supplements to the gym or field, either. In fact, many people have started to use Energy Formula instead of coffee to get themselves up and going in the morning. One thing we wouldn’t recommend is taking Pre Game Formula or Energy Formula too close to bedtime. They were created to ramp your energy levels up, so sip on them before bed and you’re more likely to do sit-ups then to catch shuteye.
How To Take Pre Game Formula, Energy Formula, or Recovery Push Formula:
Combine 1 scoop with 8 oz.* of water in a shaker bottle. Shake it up and consume.
*Use 8-10 oz. of water with Recovery Push Formula
