This is the best tasting pre-workout stack I have ever conceived! The original idea was to create a mixed-berry type of drink, but it ended up tasting like a snow cone! Snow cones had this refreshing raspberry-ish flavor that made you crazy when you heard the ice cream truck coming down the street. Now, imagine that but with pre-workout fuel in it and without the sugar!! Yes, sir, I like it! I’ll take ten. TAAAAKE MY MONEY!!!
The body’s preferred fuel source is carbohydrates, and Karbolyn is the ideal carb source to fuel you before a workout. It digests quicker than sugar and converts to the necessary glycogen your muscles need for the beating you are about to give them. Even though it isn’t sugar, you wouldn’t know that by the way it tastes!
BCAAs can be used by the body as immediate energy so it will not break down your muscle tissue for amino acids once the carbs and glycogen have been depleted. They will keep you going until you finish your last rep, and BCAAs can even make you want to squeeze out a few bonus reps!
Kre-Alkalyn is a buffered, pH-corrected form of creatine that is fully stable in liquids, highly absorbable and doesn’t need to be ‘loaded’. Creatine is actually produced by the body to help supply energy to cells. Even though the Training Ground Pre I included in this drink has this ingredient, I like to take more because it has so many benefits. The Bulgarian weightlifting team mentioned in the study listed in the reference took ten pills per day; I take 4-6. Kre-Alkalyn is my darling favorite supplement. I adore it! As I type this I’m wearing all Kre-Alkalyn purple!
Last, but certainly not least, I’ve included blueberry flavor Training Ground Pre. This will help deliver unmatched intensity and focus on your workout! It contains: Citrulline Malate (increases Nitrous Oxide production and reduces lactic acid and ammonia, increases ATP-cellular energy); Trimethylglycine, Hydromax® (Glycerol Complex)— helps promote protein synthesis and lowers homocysteine levels which contribute to heart health; Taurine (helps increase muscle contraction force & removes lactic acid); L-Glycine (promotes muscle growth, better sleep, fights fatigue); Kre-Alkalyn (mentioned earlier); L-Tyrosine (a precursor to some of our neurotransmitters, enhances cognitive performance, physical performance, thermogenesis, improves body composition & fat-burning, and alleviates depression & PMS: Guys—give this to your girlfriends but don’t tell them why!); Beta-Alanine (as CarnoSyn®) boosts muscular strength and power, increases mass, boosts aerobic and anaerobic endurance); Agmatine Sulfate (increases energy and mental focus); and 300 mg of Caffeine (we all know what that does!).
