The answer is that there is little difference between what a man and a woman should take.
In this article, we will address what is best for a woman to take as well as how to adjust normal pre workouts to account for the differences between men and women . and the potential dosing issues involved. We will also make recommendations for what women should take and how much to take.
MTS Nutrition CEO Marc Lobiner discusses pre workouts for women, and helps you to find a product that fits your needs.
Finding the Best Pre Workout for Women
Account For the Weight of a WomanWomen tend to weigh less than males, or cannot tolerate as many stimulants. Women also might not need as much of a certain ingredients either. Thus, the solution is simpletake less!
If the recommendation is two scoops, take one scoop. If the creatine levels are at 5 grams per serving, halve the dose to get 2.5 grams since that is PLENTY for a woman.
2.5 grams of creatine taken four times a week pre workout will keep a woman's creatine stores plenty saturated.
Stomach DiscomfortThis is mainly caused by stimulants and an overload of caffeine in today's pre workouts. This is all taken care of by halving the dose a lot of the time, but a lot of pre workouts have a TON of caffeine as their stimulant source, since, well, caffeine works!
How do you get caffeine without this issue? Simple, Infinergy. Infinergy is an ionic bond of caffeine and malic acid to increase energy and mental focus. Due to its sustained release, Infinergy may also be easier on sensitive stomachs and is an excellent way to increase mental focus while supplying a surge of energy even moreso than normal caffeine.
MTS Nutrition Ruckus uses this as its exclusive form of caffeine.

CreatineCreatine is simply amino acids and is found in large amounts in foods such as beef. Creatine has been exhaustively scientifically validated and among other things
- Supplies energy to all human body cells which can improve power output and anaerobic exercise performance.
- Promotes lean mass and strength gains.
- Helps to mitigate perceived fatigue during activities requiring muscular endurance.
- Increases the body's water content, which minimizes instances of performance-related issues due to dehydration.
ElevATP increases ATP without the use of creatine. All of the ATP, none of the side-effects that some experience. This is found instead of creatine in MTS Nutrition Ruckus.
Growing a BeardMost of the pre workouts on the market, or at least those sold at TigerFitness.com, do not have any male hormones. However, some women may think this is an issue with pre workouts. It isn't.
Women need substrate (calories) too! This is why if you do not have a meal within 2-3 hours pre workout, a little carbs never hurt anyone and will fuel a grueling session.
Thus, if you need some fuel, drop a scoop (25g) of Carb 10 into your pre workout shake. Carb 10 gives you all of the benefits of an easily digested carb with LITTLE insulin spike for sustained energy and NO CRASH!
The Pre Workout Stack for WomenThere you go! This is what a woman should look for pre workout. And my specific recommendation? We want something to drive energy, increase bloodflow and we want some carbs. The pre workout stack I recommend is:
- MTS Nutrition Ruckus: Start with one scoop and work up to two scoops as tolerance is assessed.
