CHAPTER 4

PRE-INTRA-POST WORKOUT

Learn about the strength of Creatine and pre-workout fuel and why it is needed for an awesome workout. Stay energetic as you work out with the power of Branched-Chain Amino Acids and move ahead on the road to recovery with Glutamine. 

 

 

WHAT IS CREATINE

 

Creatine supplementation became popular in the 1990s for enhancing athletic performance and building lean body mass. It is one of the most researched supplements

Research shows that creatine is most effective in high-intensity training and explosive activities, which makes it a mandatory supplement when you are weight training.

CREATINE: PRE WORKOUT FUEL

Creatine is normally found in foods like meat and fish. Your body processes creatine in the kidney and liver. In the liver, three amino acids arginine, glycine (non-essential) and methionine (essential) combine to form creatine. Creatine is transported through the blood and is used by muscles that have high energy demands, such as the brain and the skeletal muscle. In fact, around 95 percent of creatine in the human body is stored in skeletal muscle. Around 1.5 to 2 percent of creatine is converted to creatinine daily, a metabolic product of creatine and it is the biomarker of the health of kidneys. 

Research shows that creatine is most effective in high-intensity training and explosive activities, which makes it a mandatory supplement when you are weight training. Creatine is allowed by the International Olympic Committee, National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), and professional sports because it improves muscular endurance and increases anaerobic power and performance required in jump squats, knee extensions and repeated sprints.

      Creatine Monohydrate

  • 100% pure pharmaceutical-grade creatine monohydrate

  • 5% of fast-absorbing micronized creatine

  • Increases protein synthesis and muscle volumization

  • Adds size, strength and power

 

Supplement

Usually, creatine is taken in two phases: loading phase and maintenance phase

Loading phase: To get the full benefit of creatine, you must saturate your muscle cells with creatine. Therefore, you need to supplement with 20 g of creatine for 5 days. However, if you have a sensitive stomach, reduce the dose and increase the duration. Like you can supplement 10 g for 10-12 days. 

Maintenance phase: After the loading period is finished, then you move to maintenance. Some people will maintain on 5 g per day, but for most individuals, 2-3 g each day will be sufficient.  However, vegetarians have to increase their supplementation to 5 g.

How to Supplement

Creatine in powder form can be easily mixed with other powder supplements, as a pre or post workout beverage. In order to increase absorption you should have creatine with a sugary beverage to enhance absorption since it increases insulin levels.  Riding on an insulin spike creatine is able to achieve the objective of hitting the muscle cells quickly.

 

CREAPRO

CreaPro is formulated with Creapure®, the purest and the most potent form of creatine monohydrate available to boost strength, endurance and size during intense training sessions.  CreaPro contains micronized creatine monohydrate particles to maximize energy for sports that require speed and heavy-duty strength training.

Creapure® in  CreaPro is imported from Germany and is far superior to any other creatine. It is 99.99% pure and is consistently tested to remove any impurity and by-products including Creatinine (CRN), dicyandiamide (DCD), Dihydrotriazine (DHT) and Thiourea.

 

BENEFITS

Purest and safest form of creatine

 CreaPro has 99.99% pure creatine and is free from unnecessary byproducts, which makes it the safest creatine available

Performance enhancing effects

 CreaPro assists in building phosphocreatine reserve, which is the energy reserve of the body for heavy-duty strength training sessions and sports that require energy spurts, like sprinting, long jumps, swimming and rowing.

Increased phosphocreatine re-synthesis

Formulated with the purest creatine, CreaPro quickens resynthesis of phosphocreatine to build endurance and maintain speed for high-energy sports.

 

Builds muscle mass

Regular intake of  CreaPro saturates muscle cells with creatine to build energy reserve and training capacity. This results in fiercer training sessions, explosive lifts and more muscle mass.

 

The most explosive pre-workout formula to add brute force to your workout sessions.

TORQUE-PRE WORKOUT FUEL

 

Torque is the most explosive pre-workout formula to deliver everything you want in a pre-workout nutrition for the ultimate performance advantage.  Scientifically researched ingredients in Torque give brute force for an extraordinary workout and empower you to overcome growth plateaus.

 

Get more reps

Torque supplies Beta-Alanine, which delays muscle fatigue and promotes endurance for greater pumps and stronger lifts

 

Improved performance

Arginine increases nitric oxide production and blood flow to the muscles required for a fierce workout. Citrulline delays fatigue. 

 

Ripped muscles

 BCAAs (branched chain amino acids) like leucine, isoleucine, and valine are critical to strength training and for performance athletes.

 

Heightened focus

Caffeine stimulates central nervous system and has mild fat burning effect. Having caffeine before workout decreases your perception of fatigue and you last longer in the gym.

 

Increased stamina

Tyrosine enhances stamina, focus and has a proven track record for supporting energy without any jittery side effects. Citrulline  postpones the inevitable decrease in muscle pH that happens during intense exertion. As pH drops, the muscle becomes more acidic, and fatigue rapidly sets in. 

INTRA-WORKOUT RECOVERY FUEL: BRANCHED CHAIN AMINO ACIDS

 

Branched Chain Amino Acids are basic building protein blocks to sculpt muscles. Amino acids are of three kinds: essential, non-essential and conditional. BCAAs are essential amino acids. It implies that you can't make these amino acids on your own.  Hence, you have to rely on foods to source them.

The name branched chain comes from the structure of these amino acids, as they resemble the branch of a tree. 

Athletes use branched-chain amino acids to improve exercise performance and reduce protein and muscle breakdown during intense exercise.

 

 These amino acids are absorbed and rapidly broken down during training, which makes their presence mandatory during workout sessions for optimal absorption and replacement.

The BCAA advantage

The BCAA Powder provides 6000mg of BCAAs in each serving; lending you support during your intense training sessions. Brought to you in a convenient powder form, it enters your blood stream faster and gives you more control over the dosage than a capsule or tablet form of BCAA.

Providing you with an amino-acid profile of L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine in a ratio of 2:1:1, the BCAA Powder replenishes the amino acids your muscles lose post-workout. Free form of amino acids are absorbed fast, which means that you can use the BCAA Powder before, after or even during your workout to minimize muscle breakdown and promote recovery.

With flavors imported from best-in-class international markets, the  BCAA Powder is brought to you in a tasty orange flavor.

  • Convenient powder form

  • 6000mg of BCAAs per serving

  • 2:1:1 ratio of L-Leucine, L-Valine and L-Isoleucine

  • Provides 3000mg of L-Leucine in each serving

  • Promotes muscle anabolism and helps

  • Zero sugar added

 

Micronized Glutamine prevents your muscles from breakdown and helps improve your athletic performance.  It aids in restoring the glutamine level in your muscles, which gets depleted due to intense workouts. It supplies proteins to your muscles and thereby helps in enhancing your performance during workout.

 

Micronized Glutamine aids in the synthesis of proteins. Intake of this supplement can help you exercise for long without breaking your muscle tissues. Its rich ingredients help in the maintenance of your body's metabolic processes and improve your workout performance. This supplement can help in speedy recovery of your muscle tissues from fatigue and soreness caused due to tough workouts

Micronized Glutamine helps enhance your immune system and protects against various harmful infections.
