It’s 7 am on a Sunday. Your alarm rings war, and your blissful rest is ruined. You don’t want to wake up. You’ve had a busy week. You want to sleep in, but there is work to be done. It’s leg day.

You snooze your alarm, close your eyes, convince yourself that you don’t need to train your legs and go to bed that night feeling guilty and regretful. It sounds like you need a bit of fuel.

Leave your excuses in 2022 and get up when your alarm demands it. A good pre-workout can help you shake the early morning sluggishness.

You’re a weapon. Keep reading below to find the right ammo.
