How long does pre-workout last?

The duration of the effects of a pre-workout supplement can vary depending on the specific ingredients in the supplement, as well as individual factors such as age, weight, and tolerance to the elements.

In general, the effects of a pre-workout supplement can last anywhere from 1 to 6 hours, with most supplements providing peak effects around 30 minutes to an hour after consumption.

Caffeine, a common ingredient in pre-workout supplements, typically has a half-life of about 5-6 hours in the body, meaning that it takes this amount of time for half of the caffeine consumed to be eliminated from the body. Other ingredients, such as beta-alanine and creatine, may have longer-lasting effects lasting several hours.

It's essential to follow the recommended dosage instructions for any pre-workout supplement and to be aware of any potential side effects or interactions with other medications.

It's also a good idea to gradually increase the dosage and avoid taking pre-workout supplements too close to bedtime to minimize the risk of disrupting sleep patterns.
