A good pre-workout should do four things to improve the user’s workout.
1) It should provide physical energy, like you might feel from an energy drink. The energy component should also help with mental focus (mind muscle connection).
2) It should increase ATP or cellular energy stores.
3) It should buffer lactic acid and decrease fatigue.
4) It should increase blood flow to the working muscle and deliver nutrients and enhance the muscle pump.
The new Lean Revolution Limited Edition produces on all four of these fronts and is one of the few non geranium based products that provide a significant
boost in focus and energy.
For Energy and Focus
N-Methyltyramine is a conditionally
essential amino acid which works by being an essential precursor to the
neurotransmitter nor epinephrine. N-Methyltyramine also activates brown fat and
increases body metabolism and the use of white fat (bad fat) as body fuel.
N-Methyltyramine, is known as an adrenergenic amine, which means it can help
facilitate the action of the sympathetic nervous system on the adrenal glands,
thereby increasing the body’s metabolism, and boosting energy. N-Methyltyramine
is like a shot of adrenaline providing a very smooth focused energy.
Piracetam enhances brain metabolism by increasing Glucose Utilization, Blood
& Oxygen Flow. The net result is a boost in mental energy & cerebral
CDP Choline was also added for brain and mood support. CDP Choline results in
a noticeable level of alertness and motivation. In addition, colors seem
brighter and sharper and libido is enhanced.
For ATP Production and Cellular Energy
MagnaPower provides more active creatine to the bloodstream for subsequent
incorporation into the cells of the muscle. Chelate provides magnesium, which is
involved in more energy producing systems than creatine, in addition creatine
requires magnesium for its energy producing cycle. High doses of creatine are
not required, since the chelate is not susceptible to acidic cyclization.
Gastric disturbances are eliminated since only doses approximately 20% of what
would be needed with creatine monohydrate are required.
For Buffering Lactic Acid and Fatigue Reduction
Alanine and Creatinol O Phosphate act to reduce fatigue and muscle failure. Beta
Alanine works through increasing carnosine levels. By doing so, it helps improve
weight training and athletic performance in a variety of ways. By increasing
carnosine levels it increases buffering capacity in the muscle, this helps
prevent your muscles from becoming overly acidic during times of stress.
For Increasing Blood Flow and Muscle Pump
Most people are
familiar with arginine but the metabolic by product of arginine known as
agmatine sulfate goes well beyond arginine in terms of effectiveness. This
formula also uses citrulline, glycerol and vanadyl to enhance the pump effect
