What are the ingredients in a Pre-workout Booster?
A well designed pre-workout supplement may contain some or all of the following ingredients which will increase exercise performance through several pathways.
Lactic acid buffering through Beta-alanine, Histidine and Carnosine
Anti-catabolic support through BCAAs, Glutamine
Vasodilatory support through nitric oxide boosting agents such as Arginine, Citrulline, Resveratrol and Agmatine
Neurological support through CNS stimulators such as Caffeine and other methylxanthines
Strength and muscle building support through Creatine, Leucine etc.
Antioxidant support through various vitamins or herbs
Cognitive support through B-vitamins, Tyrosine or Phosphatidylcholine
Depending on the chosen brand of pre-workout, go through the above checklist to judge how comprehensive your pre-workout is.
What are Nitric Oxide boosters?
Nitric oxide boosters are the group of supplements that offer vasodilatory support by boosting nitric oxide production in the body.
Nitric oxide boosting agents such as Arginine, Citrulline, Resveratrol and Agmatine
help increase blood flow which enhances oxygen and nutrient delivery. This gives rise to pronounced endurance, increased muscle synthesis and enhanced pump.
What is the role of Caffeine in Musclepharm Assault?
Caffeine is a powerful psychoactive stimulant which stimulates the central nervous system to increase alertness and energy levels, simultaneously decreasing fatigue during workout.
Caffeine is used in pre-workout supplements to enhance performance by improving mental focus, alertness and reaction time. It has also seen to significantly improve endurance performance by reducing the perception of fatigue. It helps mobilize fatty acids from fat stores to be used as fuel for energy.
What is the role of Beta Alanine in Musclepharm Assault?
Supplementation with beta-alanine has been shown to boost aerobic as well as anaerobic endurance performance. It is called as a "Fatigue Fighter" for its ability to improve lactate clearance in muscles. Beta- Alanine is the rate limiting factor in Carnosine production.
Carnosine is a very effective hydrogen ion scavenger thus needed in the body to prevent pH levels from dropping. Oral intake of Carnosine is not bioavailable and hence beta-alanine supplementation becomes a very important tool for increasing Carnosine production in body thus enhancing body's ability to buffer skeletal muscles.
Beta Alanine is known to cause a ‘tingling’ sensation after consumption. This effect subsides with regular intake. Therefore an itchy or tingling sensation after consuming Musclepharm Assault is normal and completely harmless effect.
Does Musclepharm Assault contain Creatine?
Yes. It contains Creatine in form of CreaNitrate where Nitrate molecule is attached to Creatine resulting in improved stability and increased bioavailability to muscle cells.
What are the benefits of taking Musclepharm Assault?
Supports increased blood flow
Supports increased mental focus
Supports increased energy levels
Supports enhanced muscle pumps
Supports increased ability to train harder and longer
My Musclepharm Assault has formed clumps. Can I still use it? Will it be effective?
Your Musclepharm Assault may clump due to the HYGROSCOPIC EFFECT.
Pre-Workout boosters contain ingredients which are hygroscopic in nature. This means that they absorb moisture at a higher rate. This may result in your pre-workout clumping or hardening into blocks.
This is normal behavior of these ingredients and DOES NOT MEAN THAT THERE IS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE PRODUCT and does not affect the efficacy of the product. Simply break up the clumps and use as normal.
To slow down the hygroscopic effect, always store your pre-workout in a cool dry place and away from moisture (not in the fridge). NEVER place a wet spoon inside your pre-workout container.
Can Musclepharm Assault be taken on cardio days as well?
Musclepharm Assault supports improved exercise performance and thermogenesis regardless of the activity being aerobic, anaerobic or weight training.
How long can I use Musclepharm Assault?
There is no cut off point with regards to how long you can use Musclepharm Assault.
Can I take any other stimulant along with Musclepharm Assault?
No. Two stimulants based supplements should not be taken together.
