Default Pre-workout

I haven't been having a pre-workout meal, any pre-workout energy boosts, and I was wondering if I'd benefit from having something like that?


Food or otherwise, just looking for something natural that could given me an energy boost.


The obvious one would be coffee, but caffeine is really bad form my skin and causes me to break out with spots, so anything but that.
(Not sure there is anything else)


Cheers

Fruit in general must be good then

Try dextrose mixed with vitamin C, might do the trick

I saw on the Dr. Oz show a while back; Kiwi's are a good natural energy boost... Havent personally tried it myself, but just some food for thought.

Natural... Coffee is about the best you can get... but you dont want that ... hrm

orange juice as mentioned is also good...

Green tea? it has lots of benefits see if that gives you spots (which is weird.. ive never heard of that, is it an allergy?)

I know you said no coffee, but I use two tablespoons of instant coffee in 8oz of sweet tea. I drink mostly water, no coffee, and very, very little tea. This concoction makes me wanna climb the walls like Spiderman. I only take it for my really heavy days, and my workout suffers noticeably if I don't take it. I hope, someday, to have big money and be able to try the commercial stuff, but that will probably be after the young'uns are grown.
