Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula
So what the heck is Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula?
Touted as: “a powerful formula that can help you dramatically improve your energy, endurance, and focus – so you can get the most out of your workouts.” Usually when some company makes claims like this they want you to send three easy payments of $19.95 + Shipping and Processing to some address back in Cleveland and it is usually accompanied by an 800 number and a special “Act Now” gift that will double the products for the first 2000 callers. Not the case here.
To whom is Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula for?
If you are like me, who when you bust your butt day in and day out and just sometimes need a boost of energy to get you started. Yep, then you need this stuff. My biggest problem even after all these years is just getting started, once I get started I’m good. It’s a constant battle between the lazy Charles and the fitness nut Charles. Most of the time I’m ok, but some days….oh boy, it just aint happening. For me these days are few and far between, but when they do happen, I don’t feel like doing jack, and sometimes it take me a whole 15 minutes into the workout in order to suppress the lazy Charles. These are the days I use Energy and Endurance.
So whats the story on this stuff?
Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula is an actual product that delivers what it says it will, but are there consequences? What are the drawbacks, concerns, and negatives of the product? First thing you need to know is that I am a workout and fitness nerd first, and then I am a Beachbody Coach second. I like probably 90% of Beachbody’s stuff, and the other 10% is pretty lame, or at least not what I would have released. You can verify this by simply looking at one of the most popular pages on my website Insanity Cardio Recovery. If you read the comments on that page you would have thought that I invented the cancer and polio disease rolled it up into a Popsicle and served it as a free entrance gift at Disneyland. That statement is only partial truth; the popsicles weren’t free but were extremely cheap at $2.50/each, especially if you compare them to other Disneyland Popsicle prices, which had to be done to offset research and development costs, and I still only broke even! People are still pissed though.
So how does Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula work?
Again touted to work because it’s “Scientifically formulated with a blend of advanced nitric oxide boosters, essential B vitamins, electrolytes, and natural energizers.” Here are the Supplement Facts listed on the side of the jar:
|Sodium 200mgVitamin C 100mg||
|Vitamin B6 10mg||
Folic Acid 200mcg 50%
|Vitamin B12 200mcg||
*Percent Daily Values are based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Your daily values may be higher or lower depending on your calorie needs.
Now I consider all that fluff, you are not buying this stuff for other than the Vitamin B vitamins and the Nitric Oxides which come as a proprietary blend. Here is all the good stuff you need to know:
Proprietary Amino Blend: 1,800 mg: Arginine (as L-Arginine, L-Arginine AKG, L-Arginine HCI), Beta-Alanine, L-Blutamine, L-Tyrosine.
Propritary Energy Activating Blend 455 mg: Caffeine (as Caffeine Anhydrous, Guarana Extract, Yerba Mate Extract, Green Tea Extract), L-Citrulline Malate, Papaya Extract, Bromelain, Rhodiola Extract, D-Ribose, Quercetin, Physphatidylserine.
So let’s start this out with the Proprietary Amino Blend: As you will notice there is no Nitric Oxide (NO) in the Amino Blend. Why? Here is the scientific explanation: “Nitric oxide is synthesized in the endothelium from its precursor L-Arginine via enzymatic action of endothelium nitric oxide synthesis (eNOS), in a process that also requires oxygen to reduce inorganic nitrate.” So what does this mean in Compton, CA, without the $250,000 in student loan debt? It means that Nitric Oxide is made in the blood vessel walls from L-Arginine by the enzymes in your body.

The backstory on Nitric Oxide.
Nitric Oxide has been used only since the late 1990’s for medicinal purposes; actually, it won the Nobel Peace Prize in Medicine in 1998. Originally Nitric Oxide was used to help people with hypertension (high blood pressure) to bring blood pressure levels down. This works on the basis of dilating the blood vessels so more blood can pass through the arteries. This is what gives you that “pump” that is often associated with other products on the market that used L-Arginine to synthesize NO such as USPlabs Jack3d or BSN N.O.-Xplode.
So what is the difference between Jack3d, N.O.-Xplode and Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula?
Jack3d vs Energy and Endurance PreWorkout
I am using Jack3d as a comparison, (recently Jack3d was banned by the US military and other sports governing bodies due to the use of the ingredient Dimethoxymethamphetamine (DMAA)). The main difference is the amount of L-Arginine used per serving. Jack3d lists its product as having 4145 mg of Proprietary Blend, while it does not state the amount of Arginine. Jack3d single serving is listed at 4145mg which also includes Creatine (Monohydrate). Jack3d does not list the other nutritional facts that I have seen. So as a comparison and first and foremost Energy and Endurance Formula DOES NOT have any preloaded creatine. If you were hoping the Energy and Endurance formula had creatine in it you are going to be disappointed because it doesn’t…. you can stop right here because this is not the stuff you want. However if you are looking for a preworkout that is very simple in its ingredients when compared to Jack3d then you are in luck. The main “active” ingredients in Energy and Recovery Formula is Arginine and Caffeine, nothing else is in here. No creatine and no ingredient(s) that you can hardly pronounce. Its simple effective and to the point.
BSN N.O.-Xplode vs Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula
Going straight off of BSN website NOXPLODE, BSN lists their product to their clientele which also uses creatine in their Proprietary Blend. Here is a comparison between Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula and BSN NO XPLODE from Supplement stand point:
Calories: BSN-40 BB-20
Total Carbs: BSN-10g BB-5g
Sugars: BSN-1g BB-4g
Vitamin B6: BSN-20mg BB-10mg
Folic Acid: BSN-300mcg BB-200mcg
Vitamin B12: BSN-120mcg BB-200mcg
Calcium: BSN-65mg BB-150mg
Phosphorus: BSN-235mg BB-Unlisted
Magnesium: BSN-55mg BB-125mg
Sodium: BSN-350mg BB-200mg
Potassium: BSN-85mg BB-60mg
Proprietary Blend: BSN- 19.6g BB- 18g
The main difference I see here is that BSN has a higher content of Vitamin B6 than Energy and Endurance, but Energy and Endurance has more Vitamin B12 than BSN. Had Beachbody upped its vitamin B6 content to at least the levels of BSN, to me it would be almost the perfect preworkout mix. So once again no creatine in the Beachbody Energy and Endurance Preworkout Formula, I just want to make that clear!
Any Dangers of using Nitric Oxide?
Just based on what Nitric Oxide is, the most common problem I hear when used PROPERLY is that some people get bad headaches, and that is due to the fact that NO dilates your blood vessels causing more blood flow, thus causing headaches. Some people I have talked to seem to think that more is better, so if the package tells them to use 1 or 2 scoops, they automatically think that 4 scoops is fine and safe. WRONG, unless you are about 400+ pounds or you are bodybuilder, more is not better. I have never been a fan of any type of Nitric Oxide. Don’t get me wrong, the stuff works and it works VERY well, but even with my current bottle, I use about half of the suggested amount…meaning I never take more than 1 scoop of this stuff. So, 1 jar of this stuff is not a 30-day supply for me, but a 60-day supply.
Directions on taking Beachbody Energy and Endurance Formula:
For Intense Workouts: Add 2 scoops to 4 to 8 ounces cold water. For Moderate Workouts: Add 1 scoop to 2 to 4 ounces cold water. Take 15 to 30 minutes before your workout. USE ON TRAINING DAYS ONLY. So yes I only take one scoop of this stuff (if at all) during my training days regardless if it’s a crazy workout or just a moderate workout.
So what does Beachbody Energy and Endurance PreWorkout Formula taste like?
Like a weird version of Lemon-Lime Gatorade. It sort of reminds me of adding sugar and salt to Gatorade, then giving it that strange synthetic supplement taste. You know the taste that they are trying to hide what it really tastes like but really couldn’t and said “screw it, it’s a supplement anyway and it works so whatever.”
So should you try it?
Yep, this stuff is marketed as a Beachbody Product. Since half of their customers are women, and adding creatine to a preworkout formula in which creatine makes you hold water is a bad idea anyway, this is a good way for women to get the energy they need without the creatine. Up until recently there hasn’t been a Beachbody product that would make you think about going on a creatine supplement….until Body Beast started development. Check out this Body Beast video.
