  • Boost Nitric Oxide
  • Intramuscular Buffering
  • Explosive Energy and Sharp Focus

 

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout is another cutting-edge product from a company that only knows how to create products that deliver results. Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout will have you rippling with energy, ready to pounce on the nearest piece of gym equipment and pump out some sets. The beauty of having this kind of energy and focus is that you can power through your sessions with ease, treading on (and crushing) any former version of yourself that lacked motivation. With Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout pumping through your veins, there is NO LACK! You'll be ready to tackle the next performance challenge like it's a Sunday breakfast watching cartoons. And there's nothing wrong with that. The cartoons or awesome performance.

 

To get science-ey and technical and generally quite geeky, each super-concentrated scoop of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout contains 3,000mg of the world's finest creatine, called Creapure. Only the best from Optimum Nutrition. Always. After all, who wants to sink their hard-earned coin into the pre-workout piggybank when you're concerned about quality, and efficacy? Creatine is an awesome di-peptide naturally synthesized in the human body. We also consume it through our diet, unless following a  vegetarian or vegan diet. This nutrient has been studied for decades now, with the cumulative evidence shedding bright light on how it can be used effectively to support exercise performance and recovery. In short, it has been suggested that creatine supplementation is warranted for exercises that last up to 3 minutes in length1. It also assists in reducing recovery between sets2. Furthermore, it may also boost intelligence and working memory3. The author takes his creatine, otherwise he couldn't write crazy science-ey (awesome?) articles like this. And how does creatine do all this, you say? What magical biological spell does it cast? Creatine assists in the rebuilding of the phosphocreatine energy system, which is an essential ATP (energy) regeneration pathway, heaviliy relied upon during explosive or power-based movements that last up to ten seconds. Of course, the magnitude of the beneficial effect reduces proportionately to the time of the exercise. So a 30 second exercise may still derive benefit from supplementing creatine, but not as much as a 10 second exercise. This is because the portion of the exercise benefited has less of a measurable impact on performance the longer the duration of the movement. But anyway, that's enough on creatine. It's good. Say no more.

 

Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout contains a range of other helpful nutrients, such as acetyl-l-carnitine, acetyl-l-tyrosine, citrulline malate and beta alanine, making it the quintessential sports nutrition supplement. Citrulline assists with nitric oxide synthesis, blood vessel dilation and the delivery of important nutrients to working muscles. Beta-alanine assists with the production of carnosine, which is a muscle-specific antioxidant dipeptide (two amino acids joined)4. Beta-alanine has been shown to reduce neuromuscular fatigue and support tactical performance5

 

Once you consider the caffeine content in this product—not too little, not too much—it becomes clear that Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout is ready to take you to a higher level—not necessarily altitude training—of performance. So if you're ready to crush all pre-conceived notions of what you can and can't achieve, you're ready for a scoop of Optimum Nutrition Gold Standard Pre-Workout ... in refreshing apple or blueberry lemonade, amongst others.
