WHAT MAKES ATHLETICPERFORMANCE NUTRITION’S INTENSE SO DAMN GOOD?
What makes Athletic Performance Nutrition’s Intense so damn good?
There are more pre-workout supplements than there are people taking selfies in the gym change room, but what separates Intense from the rest? Well like your mother taught you, it’s what’s inside that counts…
If you’ve ever gone to a supplement store, or browsed a sup website, you’ll see that pre-workouts come in a huge variety of colours, flavours, shapes and sizes. They have an ingredient list with letters, numbers and symbols that you’d need a degree in chemical engineering to identify!
But don’t worry, we’ll help you understand what goes in to Intense to make it the best pre-workout you’ve ever had. Here are the main ingredients:
This is the ingredient that can give people that harmless “itchy” feeling, but it’s actually a very useful amino acid that can help neutralise fatigue toxins in your muscles, making room for fresh nutrients and repairing your muscles as you go. This means you can get that extra few reps out, to get the results you want a little quicker.
Creatine is a natural ingredient that can increase explosive energy, as well as delay fatigue. It’s been used by athletes for decades, and has a long history of success. Creatine monohydrate is a form of creatine that mixes easily, so you can absorb it rapidly and get the benefits quicker!
Tyrosine might be the most underrated ingredient that a lot of pre-workouts seem to forget about. It’s a multi-purpose amino acid that your body can use to increase concentration, muscle recovery or even provide your muscles with energy directly. It’s a mind and body booster as well as a recovery sup all in one!
This is an extract taken from a tropical plant found in indonesia. It’s been used in traditional medicine of the region for centuries. The refined plant can help your body keep carbohydrates available as energy for a longer time, instead of converting them to fat. This helps you have more fuel to burn, as well as avoiding adding to fat stores.
Everyone knows that caffeine can help you get the most out of your exercise in many ways, but when paired with Raspberry Ketones, the side effects are blunted a bit. You still need to treat it with respect, but you can get a little more of the alertness and fat burning capabilities, without quite as much of a risk of a caffeine crash.
This is the active chemical found in Horny Goat Weed. It can help boost Nitric Oxide levels and lower inflammation, as well as make you feel pretty good too. The extra Nitric Oxide can help increase blood flow, so you get more nutrients to your muscles, and take away the toxins that build up when you’re working hard.
This is a custom designed stimulant made from cutting edge pharmaceutical practices. It’s also called Amp Citrate and is a breakthrough ingredient that you’ll be hearing a lot more about in the future. It’s designed specifically to improve focus and energy, and can get you up and going, like a pre-workout should!
Phenylethylamine is a substance that is found naturally in the brain, and is involved in regulating your mood, as well as how you respond to stress and keep focused. When you work out, it’s easy for your mind to wander and your form can suffer, or you can just feel like hitting the showers early. Phenylethylamine can help turn our mood around and get you back into it and hitting Personal Bests in no time!
If you like that little boost you get after having some good quality chocolate, this is the little guy you want to thank. Theobromine is a stimulant that comes from the cacao plant, and is a lot like caffeine, but less involved in the central nervous system. It’s the good bit of chocolate without the bad.
Also known as “Bitter Orange”, this stimulant can help boost your heart rate and prepare you for an intense workout. The extra blood flow, coupled with the Nitric Oxide boosters mentioned above mean that your body is pumped up and ready to smash your workout like never before!
That’s all the major ingredients. No magic, no mysterious extracts that can only be picked by blind monks on a full moon, just hand-selected substances chosen for their ability to give you the raw energy you need, and the focus to use it properly. Once you’ve tried APN Intense, you’ll see why so much thought went into the formula, and why it was all worth it.
