Is your current pre-workout just not powerful enough? If it’s not getting it done for you, it’s time to switch to 5% Nutrition 5150 Pre-Workout! This is an explosive, stim-crazy pre-workout that’s designed to give you insane energy, intense focus, huge pumps, increased motivation, and extended endurance. Isn’t that what you should expect from your pre-workout?
Take a look at the legendary 5% Nutrition 5150 Pre-Workout ingredient profile:
L-Citrulline - 4,000 mg
L-Citrulline is one of the most common and potent pump ingredients currently on the market. To give you maximum pumps, 5150 provides a 4-gram dose of 100% pure citrulline. You won't find the diluted Citrulline Malate in 5150. Citrulline Malate is only 50% citrulline while the other 50% is malic acid. Citrulline converts to arginine in the liver and promotes longer-lasting, more intense pumps than arginine itself does, basically beating arginine at its own game. How’s that for a powerful pump booster? (1)
Beta Alanine - 3,000 mg
Here's an ingredient that blocks fatigue by indirectly buffering lactic acid. It increases levels of carnosine in your muscles. Carnosine is made up of the amino acids alanine and histidine and occurs naturally in the body. It's also one of the primary compounds that buffer lactic acid in your working muscles. That means you can knock out extra reps and sets, thereby increasing intensity. (2)
L-Taurine - 2,000 mg
Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid that occurs naturally in your muscles, heart, and brain. You often see it in pre-workouts and energy drinks. Taurine has quite a few benefits. One important benefit is that it decreases resistance to blood flow. That means better pumps and improved nutrient delivery. Not to mention taurine is an osmolyte. That means it increases muscle cell volume by pulling water into the muscles. Finally, taurine improves cognitive function for better workout performance. (3)
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine - 750 mg
This is the most bioavailable form of tyrosine currently on the market. Since it offers superior absorption, you can experience exceptional results with a smaller amount. One of the main things tyrosine does is increase levels of the neurotransmitters dopamine and noradrenaline. This elevates focus and enhances mood. It also helps you deal with all kinds of stress. (4)
Choline Bitartrate - 500 mg
Choline, a member of the B-complex family of vitamins, enhances focus and improves mental function, including your mind-muscle connection. Tuning into and feeling your target muscles working is a critical key to training success. This mental connection is often the difference between an average training session and a great one.
Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (Alpha-GPC) 50% - 200 mg
Here’s a type of choline that absorbs better than regular choline does. Also, Alpha-GPC increases the release of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that improves memory and learning. Not to mention, it prevents exercise-induced reductions in choline levels, It also increases endurance. Finally, alpha gpc may improve recovery. Leave it to 5% Nutrition 5150 Pre-Workout to include not one, but two effective forms of this impressive ingredient. (5, 6)
Cocoa Alkaloid Extract (Theobroma cacao) - 80 mg
This is an exciting compound that stimulates thermogenesis to help burn fat, increase energy, and elevate mood. Cocoa alkaloid extract doesn’t have the edge that caffeine can have. Plus, it will even out the effects of caffeine. Plus, it lasts longer. That means there’s a dramatically reduced chance of the jitters and shakes you may experience from an extreme dose of caffeine. (7)
Synephrine Hydrochloride - 45 mg
This is a naturally occurring alkaloid originally introduced to replace ephedra. It’s also called “bitter orange” because it comes from the rind of oranges. Studies suggest that synephrine hcl attaches to β3-adrenergic receptors. This improves the body’s ability to break down stored body fat. Synephrine hcl also acts as a mild stimulant that works synergistically with the 5% Nutrition 5150 Pre-Workout Stim-Crazy Caffeine Complex. (8)
Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzia serrata) (std to 1% Huperzine A) - 50 mcg
Here’s an ingredient that enhances focus and also indirectly increases the levels of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It works by inhibiting an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase, which controls the breakdown of acetylcholine. By inhibiting this enzyme, more acetylcholine is available to improve focus. (9)
5% Nutrition 5150 Pre-Workout Stim-Crazy Caffeine Complex - 513 mg (Yields 400mg) - Caffeine Anhydrous, Dicaffeine Malate (Infinergy™), Theobromine, Caffeine (from Green Tea leaf), Guarana Seed Extract, Rauvolfia Canesens (Alpha-Yohimbine), Green Coffee Bean Extract, Gotu Kola Extract
5% Nutrition’s Stim-Crazy Caffeine Complex is the way caffeine is supposed to be done.
This legendary complex features multiple sources of both fast-acting and slow-acting caffeine. That means no jitters, no crash, and extended energy. Included in this complex is theobromine which eases the harshness of caffeine. There is 513mg of total caffeine which yields 400mg of active caffeine.
