ENERGY DRINK BEFORE WORKOUT ?????

Question to those who know??? I just started working out 2 weeks ago. I do semi hard cardio for 30minutes and light weights for the next 30min 6 days a week. All this happens between 7am to 8am. Now within those two weeks i've lost 6 pounds . Heres the catch , I've been drinking one Rockstar energy drink every day before working out just to get that boost. Of course during the work out i drink plenty of water.I also changed my eating habits to smaller portions. I feel fine through the course of the day and i guess through the week. I just need to know is the Rockstar energy drink or any Enrgy drink going to hurt me in the long run? Or should I keep doin what im doin.

It's not going to hurt you, persay. You're going to develop a dependency on it, just like coffee junkies who need coffee in the morning. If it works for you via your workouts, then you can continue to do so. Like the old saying goes, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Good luck and have fun in getting to your goals.

You might want to try Monster LoCarb. It's only 20 calories and 6 g of sugar.

I would tend to think that it's dangerous. Energy drinks raise your heart rate- exercise raises your heart rate. Sure, elevating your heart rate is good- but only to an extent. I'm not the kind to drink them regardless. While I've contemplated one on lengthy road trips, I would never use one before working out.

Besides- the drinks are all so full of sugars or artificial sweetners in addition to the other 'supplements' in them. If you really just need a pick me up, buy caffeine pills and take a dose once you get up.

Google 'energy drinks and exercise'. Sometimes, Google is a better resource than the opinions of people on forums.

The energy drinks like Rockstar and Red Bull are not good for you body because of all the chemicals. A healthy alternative that I use is Herbalife's "Herbal Concentrate Green Tea" antioxidant, boosts the metabolism, boosts your energy levels and actually promotes a healthy, lean physique. For each cup you burn 80 calories! (www.shopherbalife.com/eatsmart)

I am surprised you are not crashing mid day when you drink Rockstar, When I was drinking Energy drinks every morning I was out by lunch.
since the switch I have sustained energy throughout the day. Quitting the energy drinks will make you feel so much better.
P.S. Another alternative is "Lift Off" it's on the same site as the Green Tea concentrate.

There's always been a strange cognitive dissonance about ads on uniforms. Professional sports leagues have operated for decades under the creative fiction that advertising on uniforms is some sort of infringement on aesthetic purity NFL , a sentiment that's as laughable as the idea that college athletes don't deserve a share of the billions they generate. The truth, of course, is that every uniform already allows advertising in the form of the manufacturer's logo Up to 50 off low price jerseys . (You could argue that the uniforms themselves are advertisements for the NFL Shop, and vice versa, but that's going down a symbologic rabbit hole we can leave closed for now.)

Consider a few facts: most major sports already allow advertising on their uniforms. Soccer teams around the world, including the United States Arizona Cardinals Jersey , proudly sport the logos of their chief sponsors. NASCAR teams and drivers are so associated with their sponsors that fans often refuse to buy competitors' brands Carolina Panthers Jersey . Golfers have sport the logos of high-end companies on their shirts and bags as well as their visors. Most notably for the purposes of this discussion, most teams already allow ads on practice jerseys, as you can see from these photos from the last couple days:

Plus, NFL Europe (RIP) allowed ads on uniforms Denver Broncos Jersey , like you can see here with Kurt Warner:

Or here in a scrum:

NBA Commissioner Adam Silver estimated that ads on NBA uniforms could bring in $100 million a year. That's money that other New England Patriots Jersey leagues are simply leaving on the table. Consider the fact that NFL uniforms have far more space available for ads--you could show IMAX movies on some guys' shoulder pads--and the fact that regular-season Seattle Seahawks Jersey games outdraw the NBA Finals ratings-wise, and you're looking at far too much cash for the NFL to turn away too much longer.

It comes down to a simple proposition Green Bay Packers Jersey : are you really going to stop watching the NFL because 's sporting a Dunkin' Donuts patch on one shoulder? Of course not.

One key, of course, is matching the right sponsor with the right team. The NFL will have its say in advertiser selection Kansas City Chiefs Jersey , to avoid some Texas offramp strip club sponsoring the Cowboys or some Bay-area pawn shop hooking up with the Raiders. You'll be looking at multi-year agreements; this won't be like NASCAR, where advertisers can switch from week to week and certain unfortunate cars might run without ads at all Pittsburgh Steelers Jersey . Dozens of companies are willing to spend millions for 30 seconds of Super Bowl ad time; you think there won't be a line out the door to buy three hours' worth?

So, yes, ads are coming to Wholesale Jerseys 2016 uniforms. Maybe not next year, but soon, and for the rest of our viewing lives. At least we can take heart in the fact that we won't be watching, say, the Citibank Giants play the Coca-Cola Falcons. Yet.
