Key Ingredients BREAKDOWN:
Pre-workouts shouldn’t be all about stimulants and that’s it. Right now, Agmatine is hailed as the best Nitric Oxide booster on the supplement market. Obviously there’s gonna’ be a generous amount of it in KILL IT! How does it work? Glad you asked. Guess what happens when your body breaks down Arginine? Agmatine is produced. Who needs Arginine when you can save some steps and just get right to the good stuff; Agmatine. Agmatine produces a gas called Nitric Oxide (NO). Nitric Oxide dilates blood vessels. When your blood vessels are opened wider like this you get more blood flow and more oxygen to your working muscles. That’s that pump that does so much for your muscles!
This is the second part of a seriously potent Nitric Oxide Boosting trifecta! You need A LOT of Arginine for it to actually work because so much of it is broken down by an enzyme called arginase and not used. Citrulline bypasses your liver and dodges arginase so your body can actually use it. Citrulline converts to Arginine from that point which will give you NO production. The Malate part is from Malic Acid , which helps your body regenerate more ATP energy. That’s the energy used in muscular contractions. That means you will get a great pump from Citrulline Malate and you will have greater muscle endurance with less muscle fatigue. That equates to a sick nasty workout!
Here we have the 3rd critical puzzle piece in achieving an almost painful pump! Let’s see if you are paying attention. Did you just read the above and see a word called Arginase? Yeah….. you did. Arginase is an enzyme that breaks down Arginine. What if we could block Arginase? Well….you can. That is exactly what L-Norvaline does. You can actually have more Nitric Oxide production with KILL IT because it contains 100 mgs of L-Norvaline! NOW THIS is how you get a pump!
People typically take Niacin for circulation problems. Niacin opens up blood vessels deep in the body. Add this on top of the 3 N.O. boosters already in KILL IT and now we’re talking about some serious blood flow. Too much Niacin can cause an unwanted flush under the skin. Who wants to itch and get redness all over their body? Not many people. That is why KILL IT doesn’t contain an absurd amount of Niacin in it.
Now this is a cutting edge ingredient! When your muscles are being broken down by weight training, your body starts certain processes to shut down activity to that muscle to prevent further muscle damage when it senses a drop in pH and a rise in lactic acid. COP is an acid buffer that prevents a drop in pH sp you can keep pushing that muscle beyond the normal failure range. COP works great with Beta Alanine as you would imagine. Acts as an intracellular buffer to help clear lactic acid which can limit performance during training
Alright let’s make this easy. Ready? When you work out, your muscles build up hydrogen ions. Hydrogen Ions create lactic acid. Lactic Acid lowers pH. Low pH causes your muscles to fail. Beta Alanine turns into carnosine. Carnosine is stored in cells. When pH drops- Carnosine is released. Carnosine is an acid buffer and buffers lactic acid preventing a drop in pH. Preventing pH from dropping by taking Beta Alanine allows you to train that muscle longer and past failure. DONE!
Here is where you will get some serious focus from. This is a very popular ingredient right now for focus for a reason. In the gym you need to be so focused that nothing can distract you and nothing can break your concentration. N-Acetyl L Tyrosine is used by many to treat ADHD. Yes, it’s that good. It reduces stress hormones from overwork, sleep deprivation and stimulants as well, and can be used as mood enhancer. Only the best in KILL IT!
Creatine is undoubtedly one of the most important supplements for a bodybuilder to take, BUT what kind is BEST for a pre-workout. Regular creatine monohydrate is very good, but you need a lot of it since a good amount of it is not used by the body and turns into a waste product. Plus, all that creatine may leave you feeling bloated and sick to your stomach. That is where Magnesium Creatine Chelate comes in. You don’t need to take a lot since it is a creatine bonded with Magnesium and not easily broken down by stomach acids; more is absorbed and actually used by the body. You also aren’t left with that bloated feeling. Bloated is never a good thing in the gym my friend.
If you aren’t sweating as a bodybuilder, you are probably not working out hard enough or long enough. During sweating, your body loses electrolytes- particularly sodium and potassium. These need to be replaced. A loss of potassium can cause negative side effects including cramping in muscles. Cramps suck- BAD. Coconut Water Concentrate is like nature’s sports drink and is a great source of electrolytes. Coconut water contains a variety of nutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, enzymes, growth factors and other phytonutrients. Real men eat whatever the F*** they want INCLUDING Coconut Water Concentrate.
What is a pre-workout without some caffeine it in? KILL IT doesn’t contain caffeine because you NEED it. It’s in KILL IT because you WANT it, and it helps elevate your training performance. 5%er’s can get a hardcore workout in with or without stimulants. Let me tell you what we DIDN’T want to do with KILL IT. You will notice Caffeine is the only stimulant in KILL IT – FOR A REASON. Too many stimulants constrict blood vessels which actually prevent muscle pumps. Plus having your heart rate too high during intense workouts can actually hinder your workouts and not allow you maintain the same intensity from the start of your workout until the end. 250 milligrams is about 2 strong cups of coffee; not too much and not too little.
