WHY PRE-WORKOUTS STOP WORKING (AND THE SOLUTION)

WHY PRE-WORKOUTS STOP WORKING (AND THE SOLUTION)

WHEN BANG TURNS TO BUST

At first, the workouts were epic. Then, suddenly… pfffft. Nothing. Find out what’s happening and get a solution to keep the reps and sets going.

 

THE PROBLEM

Many pre-workouts lean heavily on huge doses of caffeine or other stimulants. Sooner or later, the body fights back. When asked to process large quantities of caffeine, the body responds by gradually increasing production of the chemical adenosine to balance itself out.

Adenosine is a depressant that counteracts the effects of stimulants by filling the receptor they need to fit into – it’s the pre-workout equivalent of the “seat’s taken” scene in Forest Gump. When the stimulants can’t find enough receptor “seats”, they become less effective.

Eventually, as the body ramps up adenosine production, stimulants stop working. In fact, it’s not uncommon for athletes to become so efficient at producing the depressant adenosine that stimulants will just make them drowsy. If someone ever told you coffee late at night helps them sleep and you called BS, you might just owe them an apology.  

 Why does pre-workout make me tired?

How many naps you got left, bro?

Even famed (and infamous) synthetic stimulants like DMAA aren’t immune. Research has shown that while DMAA works like crazy for the first couple workouts, athletes’ strength and endurance consistently deteriorate if they continue using DMAA long-term. Suddenly, the FDA ban on DMAA doesn’t seem like such a tragedy after all.

 

A BETTER WAY TO PRE-

The adenosine/stimulant problem is one of the reasons UNTAPPED was designed to work differently than traditional pre-workouts.

Rather than using a large dose of a single stimulant, UNTAPPED employs a highly efficient combination of fast-acting and slow-metabolizing, long-lasting stimulants to sharpen focus and boost energy without requiring the massive doses that trigger the adenosine effect.

Once athletes are primed to train, UNTAPPED keeps them grinding with non-stimulant ingredients proven to improve oxygen transport, increase strength, pump muscles with glycogen, and improve the conversion of food intake into usable energy. 

UNTAPPED accelerates gains while providing a boost that is clean, focused, and significantly longer lasting -- and athletes never build up a tolerance. Workout after workout, UNTAPPED delivers consistent, powerful results.
