Pre-workout supplements have been around for a long time, but by and large, they are geared towards the bodybuilding crowd. Now, this isn’t to say that if you’re an endurance athlete or combat athlete you can’t benefit from using a pre workout, such as Hooligan or Bare Knuckle, it’s just that there are ingredients that are better suited (“more optimal”) for certain situations.
This is the exact reason we launched the premier pre-workout supplement for combat and endurance athletes in LIONHEART a few short months ago.
Sure, there were other “endurance” pre-workout supplements available, but virtually all of these products were garbage.
They contained a pixie-dusting of amino acids, a light pinch of caffeine, and a sprinkle of the biggest hoax in all pre workout supplements -- beet root extract. (For the record, beetroot juice has been shown to improve exercise performance, but 250-500mg of beet root powder contains nowhere near enough NO-boosting compounds to provide any ergogenic effect).
This is why we say that LIONHEART is the first legitimate pre workout supplement for endurance and combat athletes.
We include full dosages of research-backed ingredients.
No prop blends. No mysterious “synergy” of under-dosed ingredients. No marketing BS.
Just proven ingredients at their research-verified dosages to boost energy & endurance, delay the onset of fatigue, and amplify focus to help you push hard, last longer, and go the extra mile in your training and competition!
To highlight what makes LIONHEART the best endurance pre-workout supplement, just take a look at the ingredient list highlights:
- 3200mg Beta-alanine
- 2000mg Taurine
- 2000mg PeakO2
- 2000mg Arginine Nitrate (NO3-T)
- 1250mg Betaine Anhydrous
- 1000mg Coconut Water Powder
- 150mg ElevATP
- 100mg Senactiv
This is all bolstered by an energy and focus blend that includes:
- 275mg total caffeine (from a mixture of fast and sustained caffeine sources)
- 200mg theobromine
- 2000mg Tyrosine
- 600mg Alpha GPC 50%
- 100mg CoffeeBerry
LIONHEART’s energy & focus ingredients help power your mind to push your muscles when they start to burn and ache, giving you that extra gear you need to make it to the end!
Comprehensive Energy Support
Combat sports and endurance sports place substantial demands on the body’s energy (ATP) production mechanisms, tapping into the ATP/PC, aerobic, and anaerobic energy systems.
In addition to proper nutrition (i.e. consuming the right amount of carbs, protein, and fats), athletes can also benefit from consuming the right ingredients prior to training to boost their muscle endurance, power, strength, fatigue resistance and reaction time.
At the top of the list is caffeine, which has undergone extensive research in endurance and combat athletes and found to boost performance, increase time to exhaustion, reduce the onset of fatigue, and enhance glycogen replenishment.
LIONHEART also includes the proven natural energy supplement elevATP at the research-backed 150mg dose which increases levels of endogenous ATP and supports improved strength, power, and performance in athletes.
To further enhance the body’s ability to rapidly generate ATP (thereby helping you maintain peak output for longer) and work in tandem with elevATP, we’ve added 100mg of Senactiv, which increases the production of citrate synthase, an important enzyme that is responsible for producing more ATP.
Also, don’t forget that LIONHEART contains the premier endurance-boosting supplements on the market in Beta-Alanine, Taurine, and PeakO2. These three ingredients work through different complementary mechanisms to help delay fatigue, boost hydration & stamina, improve oxygen utilization, ultimately helping you stay stronger and last longer when everything is on the line.
