INTRA-WORKOUT

Kat Hoyle Updated by Kat Hoyle

Intra-Workout is one of our original products, it does not contain any stimulants but has great energizing effects.

The main focus of the our Intra-Workout is its Branch Chain Amino Acid (BCAA) content.

BCAAs are the 3 main essential amino acids that are most associated with anabolic adaptions to exercise stimulus (muscle growth after training). These three BCAAs are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine. Supplementing with BCAAs before a workout can help to prevent catabolic muscle breakdown while strength training. Catabolism is the breakdown of complex molecules into smaller molecules to be metabolized. When training our bodies can sometimes catabolize muscle fibers into amino acids, this occurs in times of over exertion or lack of efficient recovery between training sessions, or, of course, lack of appropriate nutrition. By supplementing with BCAAs we can help to prevent our muscle fibers being metabolized for energy. The branch chain amino content of Intra-Workout helps to promote muscle protein synthesis as well as inducing glucose uptake into cells, making Intra-Workout a great option for pre and intra workout.

Whilst the three BCAAs are important, they are not the only amino acids which can have a positive impact on your performance. BCAAs belong to a group of nine Essential Amino Acids (EAAs), which the body needs, but cannot produce on its own, our Intra-Workout contains all nine EAAs. 

Our protein powder Perform also contains additional BCAAs, but Intra-Workout is more suited to being used as a pre/intra workout drink due to is lightness and fresh flavour.

Hydration is a key part of any workout, and our Intra-Workout is designed with hydration in mind. it contains an electrolyte blend, and coconut water for enhanced hydration. Coconut water is naturally high in electrolytes, vitamins and minerals, so its inclusion in Intra-Workout can help to replace those lost through sweat during exercise.

Intra-Workout is a great product for anyone wanting to get a little extra push out of their training sessions.
