PRIDE is the most advanced pre-workout containing Pentaffeineᵀᴹ 5-stage energy that will leave you feeling energized without a crash. PRIDE has been made using the highest quality ingredients shown to increase strength and help optimize all types of workouts.
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. Research conducted on L-Citrulline found that supplementation resulted in faster overall VO2 kinetics. 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. 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. 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 randomized 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.
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. 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.
Green coffee extract may beneficially influence brain energy metabolic processes, helping optimize all types of aerobic and anaerobic workouts. Fat-cell breakdown properties of significantly increasing resting energy expenditure (REE) for at least four hours post-ingestion have also been shown with supplementation of Caffeine Anhydrous, Yerba Mate and Green Tea Extract. Furthermore, continuous ingestion of a green tea extract has been found to reduce body fat, systolic blood pressure, and LDL cholesterol. These findings indicate that Pentaffeineᵀᴹ gives you long lasting energy to break through exercise fatigue and long-term benefits that continue even after your workout.
PERFORMANCE ESSENTIAL AMINO ACID (EAA)BLEND
There are 9 essential amino acids (EEA) which play vital bodily functions and have been incorporated to assist with protein synthesis, tissue repair and nutrient absorption. Essential amino acids can’t be made by the body, so they must come from the diet or supplementation. Amino acids help to preserve muscle, improve mood, sleep, athletic performance and assist in fat loss. A number of studies have found that oral intake of amino acids stimulates muscle protein synthesis. Leucine is an essential amino acid which helps to regulate several cellular processes such as protein synthesis, tissue regeneration, and metabolism. Previous studies have found that upper body power significantly increased after leucine supplementation. Findings also conclude that Leucine intake accompanied by regular exercise training may increase satellite cell activation in skeletal muscles and improve muscle quality.
RAZOR SHARP FOCUS
Cognitive functioning refers to multiple abilities, including learning, remembering and attention. Previous studies have found that supplements including SerinAid have shown increased cognitive function prior to exercise. Further research also suggests that L-Tyrosine may have potential benefits in improving working memory, focus and coordination when exercising. Additionally, for mood enhancing properties, studies have shown that Taurine has been effective. In conjunction with these ingredients, theobromine has also been found to exert positive effects in different human pathologies. Research suggests that the combination of caffeine and theobromine may positively influence mood and state of alertness .
