So here's the jist of what I'm trying to do: I want to lose fat and build lean muscle. Typical scenario for an overweight person wanting to look good. Now, I'm taking whey/casein, multi-vitamins, and omega 3s but I haven't dabbled in pre-workout or fat burning supplements. I was considering doing one or the other (both if I come upon a wad of cash).
The reason I'm thinking of doing one or the other is that I hear Fat Burners give you energy much like Pre-Workout supplements. Is the energy given by Fat Burners sufficient to improve my energy within my workout, ala what a Pre-Workout supplement would provide? Or do I have it all wrong and there is no contest that Pre-Workout supplements are way better when it comes to energy?
As a note, yes I want to burn more fat but if I can get an increase in energy from a pre-workout supplement that can improve my results so that I, in turn, burn more fat anyways, I don't want to bother with the Fat Burners (hope that makes sense).
In short, which would ultimately give me the results I'm looking for (one or the other): Fat Burners or Pre-Workout supplements? (OxyELITE Pro and Jack3d, respectively.)
