REVIEWED: Trec Nutrition Super Aggressive Workout Pre Workout
Trec Nutrition Super Aggressive Workout Pre Workout Review First Look:
Weights day again. I’m hoping to increase the weight again and really punish my muscles.
Compound exercises are the order of the day due to their ability to increase testosterone production and hit a large number of muscle groups.
However, to perform these extremely stressful exercises you have to be in a good state of mind. Being tired or lackadaisical will lead to injury or just poor lifting form which will not accelerate growth.
Therefore it is important that when I finish work and have driven home for a coupe of hours that I do not fall into a lull of just eating and then browsing for cars on eBay – a passion that is getting out of hand!
So, this is why I am now hammering the pre workout supplements to find out which is best, a supplement that will propel you (and me) in to stardom…okay, not stardom but at least a decent effort in the gym.
No one likes a plateau, no one likes it when you lose strength. We fucking love it when we keep gaining and that’s what these pre workouts can do.
Creatine Monohydrate – It is the simplest form and most popular of Creatine. It is an extremely fine powder that can be mixed in water for a high absorption rate.
There are many alternative forms of creatine, however, none are more effective than the basic creatine monohydrate.
Supplementation increases creatine storage and promotes a faster regeneration of adenosine triphosphate between high intensity exercises. These improved outcomes will increase performance and promote greater training adaptations.
Beta-alanine – Supplementation of this non essential amino acid aids the production of carnosine. That’s a compound that plays a role in muscle endurance in high-intensity exercise.
That said, studies have been small and not entirely conclusive.
Bet a Alanine does give many users that tingly/itchy feeling. Some love it, others hate it.
I think it is best described at Chillblains – i.e when you go in to a warm room after your hands have been exposed to the cold and they start to feel itchy.
Caffeine – It stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure to give you an extra boost and hit that PB.
Caffeine Anhydrous is the purest form of caffeine so always look out for it.
This is found in 4 Gauge which is the best pre-workout.
Arginine – This is found in many pre workout supplements or products designed to make you more vascular. L-Arginine opens up the blood vessels and arteries to assist with blood flow.
This may assist with any impotency issues that are not helping you attain that hot chick in the gym who is 15 years your junior, but only if you have 5g a day!
Arginine-alpha-ketoglutarate (AAKG) – Tests on supplementation draw no real benefit that would not be found from resistance training itself.
L-Citrulline – This is used as a sports performance and cardiovascular health supplement. L-Citrulline supplementation results in reduced fatigue and improved endurance for both aerobic and anaerobic prolonged exercise. An increase in growth hormone has been noted with exercise, but not at rest.
L-citrulline boosts nitric oxide production in the body. Nitric oxide helps your arteries relax and work better, which improves blood flow throughout your body.
Supplementing can help lower blood pressure in people with prehypertension.
L-Tyrosine – Tyrosine is taken for depression, attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), the inability to stay awake (narcolepsy), and improving alertness following sleep deprivation.
It is also used for stress, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic fatigue syndrome(CFS).
Naringin – This displays strong anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Known as a citrus flavonoid and found in grapfruit, it is also good for reducing cholesterol, high blood pressure, overall obesity as well as improving cardiovascular health.
Taurine – It has been touted that Taurine can help mental performance. Early clinical research suggested that taurine, in combination with caffeine, glucuronolactone, and B vitamins, can improve attention and reasoning in adolescents, but does not improve memory.
However, there is insufficient evidence to prove this is always the case.
1 sachet with water which is an okay 10000mg.
This sachet is wildberry flavor that was neither pleasant nor unpleasant, just okay if not a little odd.
Beta-Alanine can help with muscle endurance, although not entirely proven. It does feel a little that the tingly sensation from beta-Alanine does take over and become a diversionary tactic.
Arginine can increase blood flow, but I think you would require to at least 10x more than delivered here to feel the benefits.
Creatine is good to have, as already mentioned, nothing beats normal, regular Joe creatine monohydrate for performance. As with creatine supplementation this would need to be taken daily for real effects.
Caffeine is a great stimulant and good for energy and focus.
Citrulline is great because it helps the body produce more nitric oxide. It is also good for performance, warding off fatigue and increase growth hormone while exercising.
Tyrosine is great for focus and cognitive function.
All of those combined with Naringin is great for boosting cardio vascular health among other benefits, not withstanding fighting obesity.
So how did it feel?
At first I felt a bit like I head a fuzzy head, a bit of a headache feeling was present which I was not to sure about at.
This was followed by a slight tingling sensation to the head, but nowhere else.
I did shortly after have a real urge to hit the gym, so I practically ran out the house and started smashing the weights.
I noticed the initial sort of buzz and hyper feeling wore off quite quickly but there wasn’t a crash of any sort, I felt good to keep smashing the weights until I finished.
I didn’t once feel tired, or too worn out to carry on, so I didn’t. i hit it hard and feel great for it.
I think this works a treat.
Okay, Taurine appears in plenty of stimulation drinks and pre workouts but it’s not actually proven to work.
AAKG doesn’t really have an effect in studies and I feel Arginine is too under-dosed to be very beneficial.
However, overall it didn’t feel too intense and there wasn’t a crash, but I did feel capable enough to workout at a heavy level and be confident to finish everything I had set out to do.
Although, you may tire of the taste if you use this on a regular basis.
Trec Nutrition Super Aggressive Workout Pre Workout Review Conclusion:
This seemed to work well for me. For its foibles such as a few inconclusive ingredients or being slightly under dosed I certainly felt the benefits of the other ingredients and felt good enough to go heavy and smash it up – something not many of the other pre workouts have been able to do for me.
So, it wasn’t the best, and it wasn’t the best tasting but it offered a sustainable release of energy and focus that cannot be faulted.
