ASN’s Top 6 Pre Workouts for 2016

It's 6am Tuesday morning. The alarm buzzes. It's time to hit the gym.

You roll over to indulge in that borderline-orgasmic 10 minutes of procrastination induced bliss known as "snoozing", blindly smashing your alarm clock into submission.

Feeling the tightness and satisfying DOMs in your pectoral muscles while performing this shameless routine after a crushing assault on the bench press known to most as "Chest Monday", you toy with the notion of skipping today's leg session (again) in favour of a good old fashioned sleep in.

2: Bombshell: $59.95


Ladies, listen up; Bombshell is for you. Designed by Lecheek specifically for the demanding needs of the female athlete, Bombshell won't just turn your workouts up to 11, but also promotes estrogen metabolism and healthy hormone balance.

Are you tired of hitting the iron day in and day out, sweating your ass off but still can't get rid of that stubborn tummy roll or muffin top? We hate to be the bearer or bad news, but hormones may be the culprit here. Bombshell's full dose of Diindolylmethane DIM is the game-changer separating Bombshell from the competition, and will not only fuel your training sessions to new heights, but may result in a significant improvement to your body composition and overall mood!

Trust us, it's the bomb. Plus, $59.95 for a whopping 60 serves will keep you chargin' for dayz.

Packed to the brim with scientifically advanced ingredients to deliver nuclear results, one scoop of The One will put your workout into overdrive, making taking out a never ending army of Agent Smiths look like child's play.
