Your ability to push past your physical limits determines how much progress you'll make in the gym.
Nootropics are typically taken to enhance cognitive performance. However, bodybuilders, athletes and other fitness buffs are increasingly aware that nootropics can improve their physical performance while working out, too.
Nootropics can help optimize brain chemicals and cognitive functions that drive peak physical performance.
Whether you are striving for one more rep or pushing yourself to go that extra mile, focus is the cognitive function that can help you to succeed.
The ability to harness and concentrate one’s mental faculties on a physical activity is what the mind-body connection is all about.
The 3 nootropics that can boost your focus in the gym:
L-Tyrosine has been shown to effectively improve cognition in the presence of an acute stressor, typically high intensity exercise such as bodybuilding or CrossFit. In particular, L-Tyrosine can acutely increase the production of noradrenaline and dopamine contributing to an increase in attention and cognitive performance†
L-Tyrosine can assist in improving cognitive performance and reducing the perception of stress during acute exercise, allowing you to train and compete harder for longer.†
One of the main benefits of TeaCrine is that it provides an energy boost to anyone who takes it. When taken as part of a pre-workout, TeaCrine delivers an overall sense of increased energy and vitality.†
Research shows that people who take TeaCrine can experience an increase in the amount of physical energy they are able to expend. They also experience reduced physical fatigue. This means that they are able to push themselves harder during workouts and last longer, so they can experience and overall improved physical performance.†
Huperzine A is A potent brain booster that can promote better focus, enhanced memory, and even boost mood to the point of a mild euphoric effect.
Huperzine-A allows nerve impulses to the muscles to be faster and better synchronized, and can better withstand fatigue. This results in stronger muscle contractions and less central nervous system fatigue, meaning you are stronger in the gym and can maintain that strength for longer.†
Taken as part of your pre-workout, Huperzine-A may help to increase cognitive performance and muscular endurance, while suppressing fatigue during training.†
Find all three of these nootropics in the pre-workout APEX-N.
The whole idea behind APEX-N is that we wanted to make a product that that included both nootropics and pre-workout staples, like Beta-Alanine, Creatine, L-Arginine and Caffeine. And it even does it on a budget (it's only $29.95 for a 30-serving tub).
Is APEX-N right for you? You'll only know once you give it a try. If it doesn’t work, there’s a money back guarantee so you don’t have to worry. It just may be the best money you’ve ever spent.
4 ways APEX-N can boost your workout:
1. Boosts your blood flow (and pump) with nitric oxide.
The way you increase NO before workout is through ingredients that nudge your body to produce more nitric oxide, such as L-Arginine. Boosting nitric oxide levels can help dilate your blood vessels to get more oxygen to your muscles. Increasing blood flow to the muscles increases nutrient delivery, which has been shown to elevate protein synthesis rates.
2. A hefty dose of Beta-Alanine.
When you perform high-intensity exercises, acidity can start to build up in your body, increasing muscle fatigue and reducing performance. Beta-alanine ultimately helping you maintain your intensity for longer periods of time. In other words: more volume; more gains.
3. The fusion of caffeine and TeaCrine.
APEX-N contains the magic of a caffeine and TeaCrine stack. Research presented in the 14th International Society of Sports Nutrition (ISSN) Conference provided convincing evidence that combining TeaCrine + caffeine improved exercise capacity and endurance. Combining TeaCrine and caffeine together led to greater exercise capacity than consuming either caffeine alone or placebo.
TeaCrine and caffeine together helped sustain focus and concentration under fatiguing conditions better than caffeine alone. Stacking caffeine + TeaCrine led to better performance compared to caffeine alone or placebo on complex choice, reaction time tests.
4. Creatine for before you workout.
During a high-intensity workout, creatine stores in the body are used up quickly, meaning that there is a creatine deficit in the body. This compromises your overall ability to work out and make every rep count. Creatine pre-workout helps to saturate your muscles creatine stores before you begin exercise.
