If you spend your gym time texting on the squat rack, LEG DAY isn't for you. If the highlight of your workout was bragging about shorting Game Stop, take a pass. But if the clanging of iron and grunting of all-out effort is your call to action. If you make every workout life-altering, decimate every set, annihilate every rep, then LEG DAY is your liberator.
elevATP contains a patented blend of plant bio-inorganic trace minerals and polyphenols from ancient peat and apple extracts that have been shown to increase intracellular ATP levels in whole blood and muscle. Studies in healthy, resistance-trained athletes note that supplementation with elevATP can improve strength, power, and performance.
NeuroFactor is an all-natural, patented extract of whole fruit from the Coffea arabica plant that contains a unique profile of polyphenols that have been shown to stimulate the production of Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) -- a neuroprotein that plays a key role in the development, maintenance, and repair of neurons as well as offers protection against neurodegeneration. BDNF is also known to impact learning, memory, and higher thinking, which may help athletes stay “locked-in” for longer during intense training sessions.
Senactiv is a 100% natural ingredient containing a unique blend of panax notoginseng and rosa roxburghii that is backed by 6 human clinical studies. Specifically, supplementation with Senactiv is noted to enhance muscle energy by boosting citrate synthase activity by 47%. Citrate synthase is an important enzyme that is responsible for producing more ATP. And, Senator is also known to support muscle preservation and regeneration via the removal of old cells and reducing inflammation.
There's no other way to say it -- carbohydrates fuel performance. They are the body's preferred source of energy during intense physical activity...like the kind you'll be doing on leg day.
Cluster Dextrin (highly-branched cyclic dextrin) is a premium-grade high-performance carbohydrate that helps fuel the demands of hard training athletes.*
Cluster Dextrin has a high molecular weight and ultra-low osmolality, allowing it to rapidly navigate the GI tract and then be efficiently transported to muscle cells. This primetime performance carb is also low glycemic so it won't spike blood sugars, but will provide a smooth, sustained release of energy to power you through your entire workouts.
Research also indicates that supplementing with Cluster Dextrin may improve time to exhaustion and reduce stress hormone response and lower urinary cytokine levels to intense exercise.
Growth Factor BCAA/EAA
The body uses around 20 amino acids to construct protein, including the kind that makes up skeletal muscle tissue.
Of those 20-odd amino acids, nine of them must be obtained through the diet as the body cannot make them. These are called essential amino acids (EAAs).
Without sufficient amounts of these essential amino acids, performance, recovery, muscle growth, and ultimately health is compromised.
LEG DAY delivers a robust 7.6 grams of essential amino acids (including 2.5 grams of leucine) to stimulate protein synthesis, combat muscle breakdown, and support muscle recovery and repair.
Ornithine is an amino acid that is naturally produced by the body and plays a key role in the urea cycle, which takes ammonia, a waste product of amino acid breakdown, and converts it to urea.
Supplementation with ornithine supports ammonia buffering, which may help delay the onset of fatigue, increase anaerobic performance, and promote faster recovery.
Electrolyte & Hydration Optimizer
Proper hydration is vital to optimal performance.
In fact, as little as a 2% decrease in hydration is known to reduce performance and increase the perception of fatigue, and it may also increase the risk of injury.
Intense exercise causes intense sweating, and when you sweat, you're not only losing water but valuable electrolytes too. These same electrolytes are responsible for optimal muscle function (strength, power, etc.).
Failing to replace these depleted electrolytes can lead to premature fatigue, performance dropoff, difficulty concentrating, and cramping.
LEG DAY includes a comprehensive array of essential electrolytes as well as a full 1,000mg of Taurine -- an amino acid that functions as an osmolyte, which encourages muscle cells to absorb more fluid, increasing muscle fullness and hydration while combating the onset of fatigue.*
AstraGin is a novel complex of highly purified and fractionated Panax notoginseng and Astragalus membranaceus shown in 16 in-vitro and eight in-vivo studies to increase bioavailability and absorption of several key nutrients, including the uptake of numerous amino acids (e.g. leucine 58% increase).
AstraGin may also support better muscle recovery and growth following training as studies on ginsenosides (one of the active components in AstraGin) note that it activates the mTOR signal pathway by regulating upstream kinases in muscle cells.
