Best Pre-Workout Smoothie for Power and Explosive Strength
Using a natural hand made pre-workout smoothie for power and explosive strength is one of the best ways to get the advantage of both. It increases your overall health and longevity while easy to digest (unlike eating a meal) and accessible by your muscles, hormone receptors and nervous system.
The goal is to work with your body’s natural cycles and give them what they need to exceed the strength and performance goals you desire in your particular sport, event or gains in physique bodybuilding. These hand-crafted pre-workout smoothies will give you the advantage you’ve been looking for.
Smoothie Recipe for Power and Strength
- 1 Cup Coconut Water (electrolytes and hydration much better than Gatorade)
- 1 Serving Orgain Protein or Hemp Protein Powder for Vegan Athletes *OR*
- 1 Serving Grass Fed Organic Whey Protein or Greens and Whey Protein
- * You can also combine 1/2 Serving of Vegan and Whey Proteins (muscle preservation and sustained workout energy)
- 1 Banana (quick release energy to get you started)
- 1 Handful of Red or Black Berries – Fresh or Frozen (energy and antioxidants)
- 2 Tbsp. Organic Kefir (natural probiotic and digestion enhancer, can use yogurt as substitute)
- 1 Tbsp. Organic Hemp Seeds (hulled, high nutrient fiber and protein source, helps burn fat)
- 1 Serving Organic Wheatgrass Powder (or shot)
- 1 Small handful of Spinach or Kale (greens)
- 1 Cup Filtered Cool Water or Ice Cubes (Alkaline Ionic Water is best as it prevents lactic acid buildup that slows you down, adds electrical potential, has high antioxidant level too)
- Mix in a NutriBullet or Blender for 20-30 seconds. I recommend the NutriBullet 1700 as it will unlock the nutrients in the seeds, unlike slower blenders.
- Drink 30-45 minutes before your workout
Recommended Strength and Power Smoothie Boosters
Just add the following to your smoothie before you blend it for better and faster results:
- 1 Serving Rhodiola, Ashwagandha and Eleuthero Root (adaptogens, that increase your endurance and decrease fatigue levels)
- 1 Serving each Natural Strength and Power Enhancer: (Micronized Creatine, L-Citruilline DL-Malate and Beta Alanine, Betaine Anhydrous Trimethylglycine or TMG, Pine Bark Extract) – Natural Nitric Oxide boosters that work better than C4 Extreme!
- 1 Serving each Natural T-Boost: (Tongkat Ali, Maca, Tribulus and Butea Superba)
Natural Strength Enhancing Supplements
You can also use these natural supplements for natural strength enhancemenet and musclar development with or between your smoothies. Use all the following natural supplements in combination as they work synergistically (more results than the sum of the parts or taking them separately):
- Velvet Deer Antler (Natural Testosterone Booster – Muscle Activator and Natural Virility Booster, NFL Player Ray Lewis uses this!)
- Avena Sativa (Natural Testosterone Booster and Libido Enhancer)
- Catuaba (Natural Testosterone, Energy and Mood Enhancer)
- Nitric Oxide (XtremeNO, a natural arginine based supplement builds fast twitch muscle fiber and increase muscle size)
