Lets face it, not all pre-workout formulas are created equally. Ambush pre-workout packs contain researched amounts of key ingredients for more muscle performance. From the first dose, this product sends your endurance and energy levels into overdrive for intense training.
This supplement also accelerates A.T.P. production, (the muscles’ primary source of cellular energy), for more muscle strength and performance. Plus, it was also designed to raise nitric oxide levels and deliver an impressive pump every time! Find out more about Ambush pre-workout packs below.
Ambush Ingredient Breakdown
Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) leucine, isoleucine, and valine
BCAAs make up one third of muscle protein. During intense exercise the BCAAs are expended from muscle tissue at a rapid rate, leading to increased muscle tissue breakdown. Guerilla Labs BCAA is a high potency formula with a specific ratio of branched chain amino acids designed to enhance absorption and muscle tissue recovery. Amino acids play a vital role in muscle growth and recuperation, weight management and many other important bodily functions. BCAAs are metabolized directly in the muscle and are especially useful to athletes because they may improve nitrogen retention by sparing other amino acid groups for repair and rebuilding.
Beta-Alanine is a lactic acid buffer that can increase training capacity, giving you the ability to train harder and longer. Weight training, cross-fit and other athletic activities cause your body to produce lactic acid. This causes muscle pH to drop and become more acidic due to the large amount of hydrogen ions produced. As muscle pH lowers, your muscle’s ability to perform at peak level decreases. Beta-Alanine aids by increasing muscle carnosine levels, which in turn, works as a buffer by soaking up these extra hydrogen ions. In scientific studies, Beta-Alanine has been shown to increase strength, power output, endurance, overall exercise capacity, muscle mass, and delay the onset of muscle fatigue. Beta-Alanine aids anyone pushing the limits, especially when strength, power and endurance are necessary.
Creatine is one of the most researched and important sports supplements today. It has become a must for athletes wanting to increase workout intensity while delaying the onset of fatigue. Research has shown that supplementing with creatine can boost muscle size, strength and endurance, improve athletic performance, and speed muscle recovery. Guerilla Labs creatine monohydrate is pharmaceutical grade and micronized for maximum bio-availability and effectiveness. Creatine is a precursor to the bio-energetic fuel creatine phosphate, which replenishes cellular ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels during intense muscle contractions. Creatine can increase levels of creatine phosphate in the muscle improving work output capacity, power, recovery and muscle hydration. When muscles are hydrated, catabolism (muscle breakdown) is minimized. Creatine can volumize muscle size improving strength and power. Dramatically boost endurance & improve athletic performance. Quickly replenish ATP for peak power output. Maximize your body’s production of energy. Buffers lactic acid for added reps & more intense workouts.
Glutamine is the most abundant of the 20 amino acids found in proteins. It is converted to glucose when the body requires more energy. This conversion can provide fuel for athletes. Glutamine also aids in maintaining the proper acid/alkaline balance in the body and is important for the synthesis of RNA and DNA. Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid. It is the main fuel utilized by both the digestive and immune systems and is the primary conductor of nitrogen to the muscles. A glutamine molecule is 19 percent nitrogen. Glutamine is found in high concentrations in the brain, muscles, intestinal lining, lungs, heart, kidney and liver. Glutamine is a nonessential amino acid because it can be made by the body. Blood levels of L-glutamine will fall significantly during strenuous exercise and will stay low until complete recovery. Supplementation with L-glutamine may reduce the recovery time following demanding workouts by replacing what is lost in catabolic processes. Glutamine is essential for several bodily functions. It assists with blood sugar control, plays a major role in synthesizing muscle protein and cell volumizing, provides energy and helps to regulate reproduction of the cells lining the intestinal tract.
For starters Acetyl L-Carnitine, can help with a number of health issues and conditions, including promoting heart health and reducing nerve pain. Many individuals also use this supplement before exercise as well as it helps boost motivation and promotes fat loss. Acetyl L-Carnitine also has the potential to improve the brain. It is thought to help increase the release and/or production of a powerful neurotransmitter known as Acetylcholine. This neurotransmitter plays a vital role in memory formation, learning capacity, and a number of additional cognitive processes. Many users also report having a sense or feeling of mental energy, clarity of thought, and calm focus.This supplement also has the benefit of being a powerful anti-oxidant. This helps to scavenge free radicals and remove other toxins and poisons. Furthermore, it helps to improve the efficiency of communication between neurons within the brain.
Citrulline Malate 2:1
Citrulline Malate 2:1 is pharmaceutical grade with 2 L-Citrulline amino acids bound to 1 Malate. Improves training intensity, endurance and speed of recovery. This special 2:1 ratio improves absorption. Citrulline is a non-essential amino acid that has numerous health and athletic performance benefits. Citrulline is used to support the detoxification of ammonia and to enhance nitric oxide production. Citrulline, along with arginine helps to rid the body of ammonia, a toxic byproduct of protein metabolism. Citrulline also provides a readily available substrate for arginine production, which is used for the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide enhances blood flow and gives better delivery of oxygen and nutrients to working muscle. Arginine creates an anabolic environment in your body by increasing the volume of blood flowing through muscle tissue, which leads to increased oxygen and nutrient delivery, glucose uptake, muscle velocity and power output. Research has shown that supplementation of citrulline malate raises arginine levels more effectively than taking the same dose of straight Arginine. Increases nitric oxide production. Reduces lactic acid build up. Promotes cardiovascular health. Helps to detoxify muscle tissue by lowering ammonia levels (a toxin that can increase during intense training). Improves muscle performance and recovery. Rids the body of fatigue-causing metabolic waste products.
Taurine is a non-essential sulfur-containing amino acid that works together with glycine and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) functioning as a neuroinhibitory transmitter. Taurine also plays an important role in muscle maintenance and increased nitric oxide production, which in turn causes an increase in oxygenated blood flow to the muscles. Training lowers taurine levels, which can impair strength and endurance, so it’s important to get taurine before your workout.
A better absorbed variant of tyrosine. This amino acid increases mood, alertness, focus, and energy during intense training, especially when used along with caffeine anhydrous.
Caffeine is the energizing compound found in things like coffee, tea, and soft drinks, but Caffeine Anhydrous is a form of caffeine found to be much more effective at improving mental and athletic capabilities. Studies confirm that caffeine can increase muscle strength, improve muscle endurance, and decrease muscle fatigue during workouts, which allows you to take your training to a higher level. Caffeine’s role as an athletic boost is due to its wide array of mechanisms. It reduces reliance on glycogen, enhances use of free fatty acids, competes with adenosine, increases secretion of beta endorphins, and even boosts thermogenesis. Caffeine supplements have shown to provide improved cognitive capacities as well as, concentration and short term memory.
