EHPLabs: Pride Pre Workout
Do you want to take your workout intensity to another level and become faster and stronger than ever before? If so, PRIDE is the pre-workout supplement for you. It is suitable for all fitness levels, and gives the pre-workout benefits for beginners and advanced trainers alike.
PRIDE is the KING of pre-workout powders for a reason - it contains a unique blend of performance boosting ingredients, including the 9 essential amino acids to assist with strength, mood and muscle recovery. Utilizing PRIDE as a pre-workout drink can help you break through exercise fatigue, train harder for longer, and ensure each workout is completed with maximized performance.
OFF THE BONE PUMPS
L-Citrulline improves blood flow and increases arginine levels, resulting in increased vascularity. Several studies have reported that L-Citrulline supplementation can enhance aerobic and anaerobic exercise performance as well as recovery. ¹ Research conducted on L-Citrulline found that supplementation resulted in faster overall VO2 kinetics. ² A faster VO2 kinetic response works to reduce the initial oxygen deficit and accumulation of by-products caused by fatigue during exercise, resulting in improved performance.
Nitrosigine® is a patented ingredient shown to promote nitric oxide (NO) production for improved blood flow, focus, and energy, which leads to potential improvements in exercise performance by increasing endothelial-dependent vasodilation. Increased vasodilation leads to an increase in skeletal muscle blood flow while decreasing biomarkers of muscle fatigue following exercise. Nitrosigine® also appears to lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure. This unique patented compound has gained a great reputation in the pre-workout market as it has shown great efficiency in increasing serum arginine levels. ³ Arginine plays an important role in protein anabolism, immune function and is also involved in various metabolic pathways, including the synthesis of creatine, l-ornithine, l-glutamate, and polyamines.
In addition to the other pump ingredients, Betaine Anhydrous has been added. Studies have found that supplementation improved body composition, arm size, bench press work capacity and power. ⁴ These findings can be explained by Betaine’s involvement in the production of carnitine, which plays a critical role in energy production.
5 STAGE ENERGY RELEASE
PRIDE is the first pre-workout to contain Pentaffeineᵀᴹ, which is a unique combination of stimulant ingredients to create a 5-stage steady release of energy. Natural Bitter Orange Extract provides a quick boost of energy to kickstart your workout. It has been assessed in a randomised double-blinded placebo-controlled protocol study which found that supplementation was associated with statistically significant increases in energy levels as well as appetite control, without any adverse effects. ⁵ Caffeine Anhydrous, Green Coffee Extract, Yerba Mate and Green Tea Extract work simultaneously on fat-cell breakdown to promote long lasting energy. Findings show that Caffeine Anhydrous improves performance and increases time to exhaustion in endurance exercise. In comparison to a caffeine-matched dose of coffee, supplementation of Caffeine Anhydrous has shown to be more beneficial in improving aerobic performance. ⁶ These stimulants work in conjunction with Infinergy which is a milder form of caffeine. When taken in combination, it has been demonstrated to provide a longer-lasting stimulatory effect and prevent excessive "jitters", and post-workout crash.
