The Protein Works Pre-Works

After leaving Myprotein,  The Protein Works team has started building a comprehensive range of supplements. Today, I’m looking at Pre-Works, which is, you guessed it, one of their pre-workouts.

Myprotein Impact Whey

If you are after a great value protein when the budget is a bit tight, Myprotein’s Impact Whey Protein is a popular choice. After a couple of requests, I thought it was about time I put it under the spotlight to see how it stacked

The Protein Works — Genesis

The Protein Works Genesis Pre Workout

A couple months ago, I picked up a bag of The Protein Works Genesis and used it as my go-to pre-workout for two weeks. I went for the raspberry lemonade flavour because it sounded interesting and TPW are pretty well regarded for their flavours. Well, that
