Some health-enhancing habits take weeks, or even months, to yield noticeable results. That's not the case with LADDER Pre-Workout — you'll feel its effects quickly.
It can help you feel more energized and focused, and experience a noticeable improvement in performance, whether you're training to build strength, power, endurance, or any combination of these qualities.*
Here's what to expect when you take LADDER Pre-Workout — and how you'll know it's working.

Consumption should occur 30 to 45 minutes prior to exercise, says Dr. Abbie E. Smith-Ryan, CSCS*D, FNSCA, FACSM, FISSN, who helped formulate LADDER Pre-Workout. "This allows for the ingredients to take effect during your workout — not before or after."
LADDER Pre-Workout contains 100mg of caffeine — about the same amount as in an eight-ounce cup of coffee — which stimulates the nervous system and can result in an increase in alertness within 30 to 60 minutes. Within that same time frame, theanine, an amino acid, works alongside caffeine to help improve focus and attention.*
Over longer periods, creatine helps enhance power and strength; beta-alanine helps improve endurance and delay fatigue; and citicoline helps support mental processes so you can concentrate. You may feel those effects even after taking the supplement.*
LADDER Pre-Workout is formulated with research-backed ingredients that help with focus. "With the added theanine, the caffeine shouldn't make you jittery," Smith-Ryan says.
If you're a competitive athlete — or just want to train and look like one — that's especially important. When you hit the mat, the road, or the playing field, you don't need extra nervous energy — you want to be dialed in both physically and mentally.
LADDER Pre-Workout also provides beta-alanine to help improve endurance and delay muscle fatigue.* This amino acid "may cause some tingling on the skin," Smith-Ryan notes. Some athletes enjoy this feeling; others don't. It's harmless, but if you find you're sensitive to the ingredient, try taking Pre-Workout with a bit of food or more water.
LADDER Pre-Workout comes in individual packets of one serving each, so you'll know you're getting the optimal amount every time. Simply mix one packet with 8 to 12 ounces of water.
And LADDER Pre-Workout is Certified for Sport by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF), which verifies that these products do not contain unsafe levels of contaminants, prohibited substances, or masking agents, and that what is on the label matches what is in the product.
While LADDER Pre-Workout can help you push your limits during a workout, it can also benefit you on those days when you're too busy to fit in a workout.
"Even if you don't work out and you're looking for more energy and focus, Pre-Workout can be a great option," Smith-Ryan says.*
Another benefit: "Many of the ingredients, like creatine, work better with consistent use," Smith-Ryan adds. So it may benefit you to make LADDER Pre-Workout part of your daily routine — whether you work out or not.
