PREpare for Intensity!
We’d like to introduce you to CON-CRĒT® Pre – a serious pre-workout option for some serious strength, energy, and endurance! The power behind this intense pre-workout lies in Beta-alanine. Which maybe you’re familiar with, maybe you’re not. Beta-alanine has been touted for years as incredibly beneficial for all sorts of athletes. So let’s explore the why’s and how’s to help you decide if CON-CRĒT® PRE™ is the pre-workout you’ve been looking for to gain an athletic edge!
Though a lot of people associated beta-alanine strictly with weight lifting, it is a very beneficial supplement for a wide variety of athletes – including those who play in team sports. Supplementing with beta-alanine has been shown to increase resistance training performance and training volume in team-sport athletes. This can allow greater overload and superior adaptations.
Beta-alanine supplementation currently appears to be safe in healthy populations at recommended doses. Daily supplementation with 4-6g of beta-alanine for at least 2 to 4 weeks has been shown to improve exercise performance. The ONLY reported side effect is “paraesthesia” (tingling), though studies show this can be avoided complete by lowering your dosage.
CON-CRĒT® PRE™ also contains PurEnergy, a unique form of caffeine that extends and sustains energy with a gradual finish to eliminate the “crash.” All this is reinforced with our award-winning CON-CRĒT® Creatine for a unique pre-workout to reinforce your inner athlete!
So how does all this happen? High-intensity exercise results in the accumulation of metabolites in skeletal muscle. This accumulation is what gives your muscles the feeling of fatigue while training. Beta-alanine increases your intramuscular carnosine content to counter the metabolites and provide an increase in muscle buffer capacity. What does that actually mean? Supplementing with beta-alanine leads to a big delay in the onset of muscular fatigue. That means more sets and reps. It also means decreased recovery time between repeated bouts of exercise, like the rest time between sets, rounds, or sprints. Beyond that, it leads to an increase in exercise capacity and performance, specifically where the high-intensity range of exercise is in the 1-4 minute range.
If it sounds like CON-CRĒT® PRE™ is the pre-workout supplement appropriate for you – one that provides increased muscular performance, increased focus, decreased recovery time, and NO crash – give it a try and let us know how it works for you! CON-CRĒT® PRE™ can be stacked with CON-CRĒT® Creatine and Gluta-Blast for improved muscle growth and recovery!
