Research regarding the benefits and detriments of Pre-workout supplement has gradually increased since its popularity arose in the early 1980’s. There have been a number of studies on its effects on human physiology during a workout; however, there are few studies regarding Preworkout supplement during fitness assessment tests. Therefore, further insights concerning Preworkout supplement and fitness testing is needed. Pre-workout supplement is taken prior to a training session and has been shown to enhance a workout by increasing aspects such as focus, reaction time, stamina, and power. This could be viewed as solely a psychological enhancement than an actual physical amplification of performance. Considering this, Pre-workout supplement may or may not have an effect on the outcome of a variety of fitness tests. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to determine if a serving of Pre-workout supplement would affect the outcome of various fitness assessments.
