I've kinda been dabbling in fitness and lifting lately (not an expert, but hopefully someday I will be), and I always hear about this thing called a pre-workout. It's supposedly a supplement that will fuel you at the beginning of your workout so that you get the momentum to go longer and harder. You know how sometimes when you run or work out, you're super tired for the first 10 minutes or so but once you get into the groove it's not tiring anymore? Pre-Workouts are supposed to eliminate or help alleviate that initial period of fatigue.
GreenForce Labs NO2 Pre-Workout is the first pre-workout I have ever used, so read on to see what happened!

The instructions say to take 4 capsules with water before your workout. I tried this 5 times on non-consecutive days to see what happened. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised. I don't know if it's really working or if it's the placebo effect, but each time I took this, I was pretty energized during my workouts (which alternate between treadmill, elliptical, and stationary bike for cardio plus weights). When I take it, I'm able to run at least 20 minutes longer without tiring, and I'm able to do more reps with weights.
Funnily, I also tried taking this in the morning as a replacement for coffee before I went to work. Works like a charm too. Hahahaha.
Would I recommend? Yea, it seems like it works. If not for working out, at the very least as an energy boost.
