Overpower: defeat or overcome with superior strength
Overpower, the best pre-workout supplement on the market by far is finally here! It contains five potent ingredients to enhance training performance. However, this is not for people that half-ass it. If your idea of an intense workout is doing curls or reading a newspaper on an exercise bike, Overpower is not for you. I designed Overpower for myself and people like me. Trainees that are pushing the limits to increase maximum strength and training performance in anaerobic activities such as sprinting and interval training. In addition to improving intense training performance, Overpower has nootropic properties and can be taken before any activity that requires enhanced mental focus such as public speaking, taking an exam, or researching complex material.*
Let’s take a closer look at the five badass ingredients in Overpower
Citrulline is an amino acid found in some foods such as watermelon. In fact, the pro-sexual benefits of watermelon consumption for men are due to the fairly high amounts of citrulline in a large serving but even then it is nowhere close to the three grams of citrulline found in Overpower.*
Citrulline increases nitric oxide which not only improves circulation, muscle pumps, erections, but also enhances heart health, and optimal blood pressure. The better your circulation and heart health the better your training performance will be.*
I love tyrosine and have been using it on and off since the 1990s! It is amazing for training focus and mental focus as well. I used to take a few grams of tyrosine before teaching workshops or giving lectures to make sure my mind was on point. The salient point is a few grams such as the three grams in each serving of Overpower, not the 500mg or fewer amounts found in other supplements.
What exactly is tyrosine? Tyrosine is an amino acid made from the amino acid phenylalanine. Tyrosine helps manufacture many important brain chemicals and hormones including dopamine, adrenaline and noradrenaline, thyroid hormones, and melanin. Enhanced dopamine supports motivation, drive, and growth hormone production as well.* Thyroid hormones are master control hormones and have a profound effect on overall health and well being. The better your thyroid function the more energy you will have to thrive and perform at your best.
Tyrosine may also improve mental performance when under stress so it is potent nootropic as well. Essentially, if you are stressed but want to take something that can help you still perform at a high level at the gym, Overpower is for you.*
When taken with water Glycerol has a potent ability to hold on to water which improves hydration, muscle pumps, and in turn training performance.* Now I didn’t just choose any old glycerol for Overpower. I am only using the highest quality options for each ingredient and that is why Overpower contains a patented form of glycerol called HydroMax.
HydroMax is a proprietary blend of glycerol and silica, providing a shelf-stable glycerol powder at a much higher percentage of glycerol (65%) than glycerol monostearate (GMS). GMS becomes unstable over time as it absorbs water and therefore low concentrations (5-12%) are required to prevent degradation.
HydroMax allows for a larger dose of active material to fit into a smaller space making it more feasible for traditional serving size finished products. Takes 10x less material to get the same amount of glycerol as conventional GMS products.
Acetyl-l-carnitine ALCAR) is an amino acid that has been shown to support memory, mood, and cognition by enhancing the process of supplying more energy to cells. In addition, ALCAR has been shown to boost strength, supports natural testosterone production, promotes the utilization of fat for energy which in turn enhances fat loss, mitigates fatigue, and improves insulin sensitivity.*
It is an incredible ingredient all on its own but when taken with the other ingredients in Overpower is an absolute game-changer. Each serving of Overpower contains a potent 1 gram of ALCAR. A high enough dosage to manifest benefits but not so high that you get unpleasant side effects such as diarrhea which is common with dosages of two grams or more.
Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (A-GPC), is an advanced choline compound that enhances brain metabolism* – unlike other choline sources. A-GPC improves the production of the neurotransmitters acetylcholine and dopamine. Acetylcholine helps with reaction time and learning new skills while dopamine is the motivation neurotransmitter. It is what gets you up in the morning ready to take charge of your day.
AlphaSize A-GPC is considered to be one of the most effective brain nutrients in the world and is used widely for memory, focus, and brain energy, and also for improving sports performance.*
AlphaSize® A-GPC has interesting utility in "mind-to-muscle" sports nutrition formulations, where it acts to optimize muscular power output, sharpen agility, and also delay mental fatigue. This is due to its acti
