What is Max Perform?
Max Perform is our powdered pre-workout BCAA (branched-chain amino acid) drink; in addition to having a 4:1:1 ratio of BCAAs, there is ALCAR, which helps the body use fat as fuel, Taurine, which reduces DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness), EAAs (essential amino acids) to help recovery, and a small amount of caffeine to give you that preWO boost.
What’s in Max Perform?
Branched Chain Amino Acids: BCAAs are composed of leucine, isoleucine, and valine, and are considered essential in that they must be obtained from diet. Supplementation causes increased protein synthesis, reduced Rate of Perceived Exertion (RPE) by preventing an influx of serotonin, and causes glycogen sparing during training, and increased glucose uptake after training.
Essential Amino Acids: EAAs (L-phenylalanine, L-lysine, l-tyrosine, l-aspartic acid)
Acetyl L-Carnitine (ALCAR): Acetyl L-carnitine is an acetylated form of carnitine, which is broken down and used in the process of transporting fatty acids to the mitochondria for use as fuel. It also has a secondary, dose-dependent ability to increase lactate clearance.
Caffeine: Caffeine is the most commonly used and studied over-the-counter stimulant. It works by antagonizing the adenosine receptors, there by causing increased alertness and wakefulness. This inhibition can also influence the dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine, and adrenaline systems, thereby reducing RPE (rate of perceived exertion). While dosing ranges in studies showing an ergogenic effect can range up to 6mg/kg, many individual variances exits, lending itself to justifying a lower dose per serving in Max Perform.
Taurine: An organic compound that is found throughout animal tissue, it is often confused as being an amino acid, which it is not. Studies have shown benefits when combined w/ BCAAS to alter DOMS, and in isolation has anti-oxidant like effects without blunting exercise-induced oxidative adaptations.
