Genr8 high voltage pre work out



·     ·        Overview & Key Benefits

How do you fuel vigorous training sessions or competition? Even worst during  low carb dieting?  Most likely you know it is like pulling a ten ton truck everywhere you go!!  Part of the drag may be due to lower muscle carb (glycogen) stores.[1,2] High-maximal intensity resistance training, in well-trained athletes, uses up as much muscle glycogen in a muscle with low glycogen as a muscle with normal glycogen content— with the same workout.1 But the other drag may be your brain in a relatively glucose-deprived state. Attempts to perform long-term studies comparing low- versus high-carb diets with high-intensity resistance training have failed, simply because the subjects on the low-carb diet couldn’t sustain hard training (relative to those on the higher carb diet).2 Carbohydrate is the substrate that fuels high-intensity training. Period

VS2®— A Super Substrate and Insulin Spearhead
Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ is the first and only pre-workout to harness the super fast, speed of Genr8 VS2 Even if you are tenaciously adhering to a low-carb diet, two scoops of Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ pre-workout can transform your training experience without insulting your carb-deprived lifestyle.

CAFFEINE— Teaching an Old Stimulant New Tricks
Pre-workout doses of caffeine (doses of ≈ 11 mg/lb. bodyweight: about 2.75 scoops for a 175-pound person, and about 3.3 scoops for a 220-pound person) can increase selective body part resistance training performance in resistance-trained males10-13 and females (doses of ≈ 13.2 mg/lb. body weight: a pinch more than 2.0 scoops for a 125 pound female, and about 2.75 scoops for a 150 pound female).14 If you sacrificed sleep for extracurricular activities or just had a crappy night of sleep, caffeine (at a dose of 8.8 mg/lb. bodyweight: a pinch more than 2.0 scoops for a 175-pound person, and about 2.75 scoops for a 220-pound person) may “motivate” you to choose more weight and reps, producing a greater workload and muscle adaptation stimulus.15

Two scoops of Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ deliver 295 milligrams of caffeine like a two-staged rocket— a first stage, rapid release form, and then a second stage, modified (delayed) release form. Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ doesn’t stop there. Ever wonder why the “Big G” ingredient— (D-) glucuronolactone— is in energy drinks and pills? Ever look for the answer?? Good luck finding it. HERE may be why— and WHY we put it into Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ : caffeine’s main ”deactivation” pathway is in the liver, through a complex, multi-headed metabolic monster enzyme system.16 Big G, when it undergoes metabolism in the body, can influence liver and intestinal inactivation pathways.17,18 If Big G turns down liver inactivation of caffeine, the effective end result may be caffeine hanging around longer, to extend and/or increase its (mental and physical) performance-enhancing effects.

 Beta-Alanine Daily Load Vehicle
Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ also sports the beta-alanine, pioneered by Dr. Roger Harris,19 one of the pioneers of creatine monohydrate back in the late 80s and early 90s. Beta-alanine is often in pre-workout products for a silly reason: the skin tingling and “prickly” sensation that often begins within 15-45 minutes after taking it. This short-lived “side effect” has NOTHING to do with how beta-alanine works. Unlike caffeine, beta-alanine (and creatine, any form) do NOT work within minutes or even hours. They need to load into muscle, which takes days to weeks. For beta-alanine, it takes several weeks to load into muscle and produce an improvement in high-maximal intensity performance.20,21

Numerous studies have shown that beta-alanine loading can improve high-intensity work performance in trained and untrained athletes.20,21 Also, beta-alanine loading can increase maximal performance following a bout of prolonged endurance exercise, as seen with elite cyclists who completed a varying intensity cycling bout for 110 minutes and then performed a 10-minute near maximal time trial, followed by a five-minute rest period and then a 30-second all-out sprint.22

Each serving of Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™  delivers a hefty 2,000 milligrams of beta-alanine— a daily loading dose alone. Very new research shows that the TOTAL dose taken, not the daily amount, is the factor that governs ultimate muscle beta-alanine loading over a two-month period.23 Thus, Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ can become your sole loading and dosing source of beta-alanine.

L-Leucine— Muscle’s Minority Fuel Substrate
Leucine alone is the sole branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) found in
Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™. BCAAs represent a tiny amount of the fuel being burned during exercise (less than 5%).24,25 It remains unknown as to what percent of fuel use during high-intensity training calls upon BCAAs. Throw in some carbs during exercise (while following a high-protein diet) and leucine’s burn rate falls to an even lower level,26 effectively leaving BCAAs on the cutting room floor. At Genr8, we inserted one gram of L-leucine into Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ , to provide an amount that is representative of the importance of this muscle fuel substrate in a pre-workout supplement like Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™  (for a post-workout supplement the movie is very different).

BioPerine®— Pass the Bioenhancer, Please
The humble peppercorn harnesses inside its spicy capsule a pharmacologic secret agent/“mule,” capable of enhancing the transport of precious molecular cargo across high security borders, while silencing and handcuffing border patrol proteins that aim to deport the cargo back to where it came from. The prime agent is called piperine, and BioPerine® is a standardized extract form with multiple patents and proven-in-humans bioenhancer performance. Piperine, and its cousins that coexist in pepper, may increase the passage of a wide variety of substrates (nutrients, food factors and drugs) across the intestines into the blood, decelerate their metabolic inactivation, and decrease their reverse transport back into the gut (and down the toilet).29-33 BioPerine, as the pivotal bioenhancer in
Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™, is a key component of Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ SubstraStim metabolic engineering platform.

Our confidence in Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™  is inspired by our tenacious dedication to invest in the best, in the proof, and to pay for the real science. We believe Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™ deserves your confidence. Genr8 High Voltage pre workout™— our first offering in pre workout supplements to engineering the Final Performance Solution.

·        Suggested use.


Genr8 Extreme High Voltage pre work out contains Vs2 S2 which is a very different type of carbohydrate-Follow mixing instructions carefully.


How; In a Shaker.

·        Fill the shaker with 350ml of room temperature water

·        Add 1 scoop of Genr8 Extreme High Voltage pre workout and shake well for 10-15 seconds


When: Pre exercise / competition

·        Drink immediately 30 minutes prior to workout for optimum effect.

·        For cell volumisation (muscle pump)  add a further scoop of Genr8 Vitargo S2.


During exercise:

·        Mix one scoop of Genr8 Vs2 + electrolytes for bloat free super-fast hydration and electrolyte delivery.


Post training / competition.


Take to Scoops of Genr8 VS2 immediately after exercise, for ultimate recovery and glycogen restoration and to active VS2’s anti-catabolic action.  Or use our hyper anabolic protein Genr8 Strength for fast effect protein delivery.  Which increases protein uptake, stops protein break down and leads to a greater protein balance in the muscle.  40 grams of protein per serving.  Alternatively add 1-2 scoops of unflavoured Vitargo S2 to your favourite protein shake.
