Energy drinks are drinks that are high in carbohydrates which will give you the energy that you need to train hard and recover faster once you have finished your workout. The best time to take an energy drink is just before your workout and during exercise. They help in replacing the carbohydrates, fluid and electrolytes that are lost during your training session.

The main benefits of drinking energy drinks is that they will help avoid dehydration, increase your energy and provide lots of nutrients that are going to allow you to recover much faster. Drinking energy drinks will also allow you to train harder for longer and they really help in delaying fatigue that sets in during exercise. They will also help you to stay focused and motivated with the job in hand, and that job is completing an hard gym workout that is going to give you the results that you are looking for.

It is also a very good idea to drink energy drinks after your workouts as week. If you are finding yourself quickly tiring in the gym, then energy drinks may be the key to more energy for you whilst in the gym. Even if you are only looking for that little extra kick then drinking energy drinks during your workouts is going to help deliver the results that you are looking for.

If you are on a calorie controlled diet plan though, you will need to remember that energy drinks contain quite a few calories. This doesn't mean you still shouldn't add them to your diet plan. Drink one energy drink 30 minutes before your workout, and an other one during your workout and then other energy drink when you have finished training. This is quite a lot of carbohydrates to take in, in such a short space. But this is the one time in the day that you should be consuming your simple carbohydrates. At other times of the day you will need to consume complex carbohydrates such as pasta, rice and wholemeal bread.
