PRE Workout Formula Overview
The PRE-Workout formula addresses the energy your body needs both before and during your workout or physical activity. During this phase, the primary goal of the body is to deliver the proper energy to the muscle in order to create muscular contractions.
The PRE-Workout formula addresses one of the most important nutrients to take during this crucial phase, carbohydrates. Carbohydrates balance blood glucose levels and replenish glycogen stores, which leads to an increase in endurance as well as prevention of muscular fatigue. However, the PRE addresses much more since carbohydrates alone are simply not enough. Numerous studies have proven that protein, amino acids, and vitamins combined with carbohydrates before and during a workout not only increases muscular endurance but also reduces muscular damage while at the same time prepping the muscles for faster recovery.
The PRE-Workout formula is designed to be mixed with either water or juice and half taken 10-20 minutes before the workout, then continue sipping the second half for the first 20 minutes into your workout.
The PRE-Workout formula provides safe and natural supplementation to hydrate, enhance energy levels and prevent burning coveted muscle during workouts, games and intense competitions. The PRE-Workout formula keeps the athlete hydrated to maintain lower body temperatures thus postponing fatigue and resulting in maximum workout periods with greater intensity. The PRE-Workout formula is loaded with a 5 gram mega-dose of BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids). Research has also shown that taking essential amino acids before a workout dramatically increases muscle protein synthesis and anabolism; increasing energy levels and the intensity of your workouts.

PRE Key Ingredients
Essential Amino Acids - (5 Grams) This mega amount of Amino acids at the pre-workout stage creates an anabolic/anti-catabolic environment during the workout and sets the stage for a faster and better recovery by the halting of cellular breakdown as well as slowing the breakdown of protein which makes it easier to put on new muscle. SSP offers a sizable dose of Leucine, the most important amino acid when it comes to building lean muscle. It helps with the regulation of blood-sugar levels, the growth and repair of muscle tissue, growth hormone production, wound healing as well as energy regulation. Leucine is the most anabolic of all BCAA’s proven to prevent muscle protein breakdown and stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
Vitamins C, E and ALA - (Alpha Lipoic Acid – Helps make Vitamin C & E work better. It is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals). These antioxidants minimize any free radicals (Unstable molecules that steal electrons from other molecules) created during vigorous workouts while also elevating Nitric Oxide (NO2) (NO2 opens blood vessels and helps increase blood flow) levels, further enhancing the athlete’s pump. The ALA replenishes the Vitamins C and E as they get depleted thus the cycle repeats during long, strenuous workouts.
Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium – Electrolytes maintain hydration levels, reduce muscle cramping and enhance the athlete’s ability to withstand long grueling workouts at both the endurance aerobic level and the short burst anaerobic level.
Dextrose - This taste-enhancing simple sugar gives the athlete immediate energy to kick start the workout. A strategic five (5) gram limit prevents the athlete from experiencing a sugar induced “crash” during or after their workouts.
Citrulline Malate - The effects begin during grueling aerobic workouts, giving the athlete a “Second Wind.” Anaerobic athletes alike will benefit from Citrulline Malate during their intense workouts as it buffers lactic acid and removes ammonia from your system.
Beta-Alanine - A Nitrous Oxide (NO2) enhancer. Beta- Alanine increases Carnosine levels, endurance, synthesizes protein and acts as a buffering agent against lactic acid buildup allowing the athlete to push harder and longer without the muscles burning out. (Carnosine is a dipeptide of the amino acids Beta-Alanine and Histidine. It is highly concentrated in both muscle & brain tissues)
Caffeine - Caffeine is a proven ergogenic (external) agent providing greater focus and energy during the intense workout. Once full serving of the PRE contains the equivalent of about 2.5 cups of coffee.
Taurine - Achieve greater endurance. SSP uses 3x the amount than a typical energy drink. Taurine lowers the Three-Methyl-Hystidine levels, acts as a Cortisol blocker and an anti-catabolic agent, preventing the burning of muscle. The Glycerol “pump” already underway is further enhanced by Taurine.
Mucuna Pruriens - Also known as “Indian Ginseng,” Mucuna Pruriens is a rare root that our research has discovered to be an excellent anabolic agent. On a different level it provides long lasting focus and energy.
POST Workout Formula Overview
The POST-Workout formula is designed for the forty-five minute window after exercise and is perhaps the most crucial time for your body in regards to supplementation. In fact, research has shown that not utilizing nutrition after a workout leaves your body in worse shape than if you had never even exercised. Using proper nutrition repairs damaged muscles and replenishes muscle glycogen stores. Within this window muscle cells are in an anabolic state, but this state diminishes rapidly, and if proper nutrition is not taken muscles will become insulin resistant, thus slowing muscle recovery and growth potential.
In order to increase recovery and repair muscles effectively the body must synthesize protein, which is best triggered by glycogen replenishment. Many athletes make the mistake of taking protein-heavy supplements immediately after a workout, but this is simply ineffective. Without an insulin spike and glycogen replenishment, protein synthesis cannot occur, they are intertwined. In fact, the most important macronutrients to take immediately after a workout are carbohydrates. Numerous studies have shown that in order to receive the greatest recovery an athlete should take a 3:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio sports drink immediately after a workout. The Post-Workout formula is designed to be mixed with either water or a berry based juice and is to be taken immediately following your workout.
SSP Nutrition’s POST-Workout formula nutrients immediately scavenge free radicals, repair muscle cells and enhance growth potential during this critical and short lived “anabolic window”. POST is based on a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that replenish muscle cells with the most scientifically advanced blend of effective nutrients.

The workout shouldn’t stop when the training ends. Experts conclusively agree that post-workout nutrients are the most important part of the day’s nutrition. Those missing this crucial step risk a muscle composition of a worse condition than prior to the workout. SSP’s POST-Workout formula helps you “Seize the Moment!”
POST Key Ingredients
Leucine - The pre-eminent amino acid which restarts the anabolic process, increases insulin levels to trigger greater protein absorption and shuts down catabolism.
Dextrose-Maltodextrin - Dextrose (fast burning sugar) and Maltodextrin (a slower burning carbohydrate) blend to further spike the insulin levels and immediately open the pathways for optimal protein absorption over a two hour period.
Whey Protein Hydrolisate - Provides instant protein absorption directly into the muscle cells exactly when they need it most. Each POST contains 6 grams of Whey Protein Hydrolisate which is the equivalent of approximately 30 grams of typical Whey Protein due to its efficiency in absorption.
Whey Protein Isolate - Provides a slower protein absorption into the muscles over the next two hours after the workout.
Carnitine - A proprietary blend featuring Acetyl L-Carnitine (this super antioxidant helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the cell’s energy generator) acting as both a fat burner and a triggering agent to keep the testosterone receptors sensitized and further enhancing the anabolic state.
Magnesium Glycl-Glutamine - Chelated (A form that is better absorbed by the body) form strategically delivers the Glutamine past the stomach and into the intestines for actual absorption. Studies conclusively show that any other form of Glutamine will not survive the harsh stomach environment and are simply a waste of energy and money.
Chromium Chelavite - Chelated form of Chromium acts as another transport agent, sensitizing the insulin receptors which mimics an insulin spike without a large dose of sugar based carbohydrates thus allowing for even greater protein absorption and muscle growth.
