We’ve all had the feeling before. You know the one where you walk out of the gym with the same amount of energy and optimism as you had when you were ready to begin your workout. The feeling like you could annihilate any weight thrown your way. The feeling you could climb to the stairs infinite end, go the umpteenth rep, fight through another grueling set because you felt like the first four were warm ups? When you had the feeling, didn’t you want to get it every time you stepped foot in the gym for every workout? Ever wonder how you could get that feeling every time?
If you’ve considered taking a pre-workout supplement recently then you probably have wanted to add one or all of the following:
- Improve performance
- Increase strength
- Increase endurance
- Decrease muscle breakdown during training
- Increase protein synthesis
- Improve energy and focus
- mprove nutrient delivery and assimilation
- Increase metabolic rate (fat burning)
- Create an optimal hormonal environment
In order to sustain a full workout, Nitric Oxide is needed to provide the energy for working out at an optimum level. It heightens the ability of the blood vessels to pump more blood thereby distributing essential nutrients and oxygen to the body. This ensures the proper blood circulation required in physical activities as the human body can only provide so little of it. Other beneficial attributes of Nitric Oxide is its power to improve cardiovascular health and boost the immune system. How does the body achieve an environment within the muscle to attribute to a fully loaded nitric oxide supply? Branch Chains of course! Discovered as one of the nine most helpful essential amino acids in humans, they are commonly referred to as muscle sparing amino acids. In the journal of nutrition published by the Nagoya Institute of Technology it was observed that subjects who consumed Branched Chain Amino Acids prior to workout can reduce muscle fatigue for several days after physical activity. There are even certain possibilities that it may slow down exercise induced protein breakdown and could be vital in muscle recovery after exercises.
Now of course we couldn’t give you that mind blowing workout without a little added muscle fuel and energy! So we add caffeine and creatine to the mixture as well. Caffeine provides extra stamina and an improved blood flow by increasing the heart rate. Taken before marathons and long hikes, caffeine can trigger the release endorphins aimed at reducing pain and decreasing mental fatigue. It is also known that caffeine compliments the ratio of potassium and calcium ions flowing in the muscles making it easier for the muscular system to contract and pump more power. The small amount of creatine in our mixture is just enough to deliver energy to all cells in the body, mostly the muscle.
There are many benefits to using pre-workout supplements. Are you ready to take your workout to the next level? Are you wanting to get everything out of your workout? Are you ready for Alpha Rage?
