Pre-workout Energy Drink

Here’s something I tried today. It may seem like a weird combination, but it’s actually really good! The agave gives you a little glucose and the almond milk gives you sustained energy with its protein. A teaspoon of cocoa powder mixes in pretty easily and gives a little caffeine boost that you may need before facing some tough exercise. It tastes like a lighter version of chocolate milk without the acidity and potential stomach upset that dairy can cause.

I drank it about a half hour before training today with good results. Most importantly, the mixture won’t spike your blood sugar like a Red Bull–an unwelcome crash to say the least.

What do you usually eat/drink before working out?

Lucky enough to grow up with the martial arts, I have felt their positive influence throughout my life and am especially interested in sharing these experiences with others. I enjoy working with youth and adults to give back some of what I've received. If you would like to learn more about Uechi-Ryu/Shohei-Ryu Karate, or if you want to find people to train with, please contact me. I am the head karate instructor for the Meriden Martial Arts Club.
