DESCRIPTION

Everyone has had one of those days before.

You know the kind we’re referring to….boss is on your case, cable repair guy stood you up, your brand new smartphone just fell in the toilet. Yeah, now you understand those days -- the really sh*tty ones that have you at wit’s end! These are the days when someone even looks at you cross, and you go Ape Sh*t!

Going “Ape Sh*t”  

Ape Sh*t (adj.) - To behave in an explosive manner; to act without regard, due to becoming enraged or extremely angry.

It takes a certain confluence of events to drive someone absolutely ape sh*t.

In the wrong setting, being in such an untamed fury can spell disaster, but in the right place (i.e. the gym), going ape shit can set the stand for record-shatter workouts, where it just rains PRs for the entire session.

Wouldn’t it be great to have that same feeling day after day in the gym, without actually having a shitty day?! 

Enter Ape Shi*t Pre Workout.

What is Ape Sh*t?

Ape Sh*t is a high energy pre workout that supports increased energy, aggression, motivation and focus along with increased blood flow to boost performance and pumps.* 

Ape Sh*t Ingredients

L-Citrulline

L-Citrulline is a premium nitric oxide boosting ingredient found prevalently in the flesh and rind of watermelon. Studies show it is superior to the old favorite NO-booster (L-Arginine) due to L-Citrulline’s higher bioavailability.[1]*

With greater nitric oxide production, the stage is set for greater vasodilation, vascularity, and best of all, PUMPS![1]*

There’s more to L-Citrulline than just vein-gorging pumps though, it’s also an incredibly potent performance enhancer (“ergogenic”).

Several research pieces have demonstrated that supplementing with L-Citrulline prior to training though enhances ATP production, boosts endurance, and increases lean body mass.*[2,3]

  • Enhances nitric oxide (NO) production which encourages vasodilation, thereby aiding oxygen and blood circulation to working muscles*
  • Helps reduce muscular fatigue via ammonia buffering*
  • Research notes that supplementing with 6g L-Citrulline (the same dose included here) improves oxygen uptake and high-intensity exercise performance.*[16]

Beta Alanine

Tired of burning out mid set and leaving gains in the gym? Then you need Beta Alanine!

When exercising, hydrogen (H+) ions accumulate in muscle tissue which drops the pH in your muscles leading to an acidic environment. Once this occurs, that painful “burning” sensation hits you like a Mack Truck and makes you stop your set early.

Beta Alanine beats back the burn, by increasing carnosine concentrations in your body.[4] Higher levels of carnosine enhance your body’s buffering capacity to shuttle out those acidic ions, delaying that burning sensation, and increasing your capacity to train.

The end result is greater stamina, strength, and endurance.[5,6,7] Something any athlete, not just weightlifters, can benefit from!

  • Binds with histidine to form carnosine, an intracellular buffer*
  • Buffers accumulation of H+ ions, which may help limit fatigue and boost endurance*
  • Noted in research to improve exercise performance and delay fatigue when training at higher intensities*

Taurine

When you’re going Ape Sh*t in the gym, you’re bringing everything you got, and that inevitably means you’re sweating your ass off! While that’s a strong indication you’re pushing the limits, it’s also a sign that you’re losing valuable electrolytes need for hydration and muscle contraction!

To counter this, Ape Sh*t contains a full gram L-Taurine, a conditionally essential amino acid that functions as an osmolyte in the body.[8] Taurine draws water into muscle cells, which improves your hydration and endurance. Plus, you’ll experience some nice water-based pumps to go along with the N.O.-fueled pumps of L-Citrulline!

There’s more though! Taurine is also a highly underrated focus booster, as vast reserves of taurine are found in the brain, where it serves to enhance cognition and attention.[9]

  • Conditionally essential amino acid serving a number of roles in the body*
  • Serves as an osmolyte in skeletal muscle, promoting cellular hydration*
  • Stimulates GABA receptors, reducing neuronal excitability*

AgmaMAX™ Agmatine Sulfate (750mg)

Agmatine is a powerful nitric oxide extender.*

What does that mean?

Agmatine prolongs the effects of nitric oxide by inhibiting arginase, the enzyme that degrades arginine (the amino acid responsible for N.O. production).[10] Limiting arginase activity supports greater Arginine levels leading to greater nitric oxide production.*

The end result is longer-lasting muscle pumps!*

  • Derivative of arginine that has documented arginase inhibition activity*
  • Promotes nitric oxide production*
  • Modulates pain receptors which may allow for longer training capacity* 

Choline Bitartrate

Hitting the gym with unbridled aggression and rage is great if it’s focused on a singular goal. Without focus, that aggression just turns you into the typical bro jerk who’s screaming and dropping weights all over the ground -- and NO ONE likes that guy.*

Choline Bitartrate funnels the aggression and channels it, giving it drive and purpose.*

Choline increases levels of the learning transmitter acetylcholine, which promotes focus as well as the “mind-muscle connection”.[11]*

  • Combination of choline and tartaric acid*
  • Supports increased the production of acetylcholine, an important neurotransmitter involved in learning, memory, and the mind-muscle connection* 

Caffeine

Caffeine is the consummate pre-workout stimulant.

It picks you up when you’re low on energy, boosts your mood when you’re down in the dumps, and motivates you to get the job done! For these exact reasons, Untamed Labs has included a scientifically-formulated trifecta of caffeine to provide both immediate and long-lasting energy.*

Caffeine Anhydrous provides the jumpstart needed to get going in the gym, and the addition of Caffeine Citrate and Infinergy™ Dicaffeine Malate serve to further enhance energy helping Ape Sh*t hit harder and last longer.*

The unique combination of caffeine variants is what sets Ape Sh*t from any other pre-workout on the market.*

No crash, no headaches, no jitters -- just pure energy, focus, and motivation!*

  • CNS stimulant
  • Antagonizes the adenosine receptor, promoting wakefulness
  • Stimulates dopamine release, enhancing motivation, focus, and mood
  • Helps reduce perception of effort during exercise, allowing for greater stamina

Yohimbine HCl

Yohimbine is an incredibly powerful stimulant that when combined with caffeine gives Ape Sh*t an energy kick like you’ve never experienced before! Yohimbine is the active component of yohimbe extracted from Pausinystalia Yohimbe.*

Yohimbine is an Alpha-2-Adrenergic receptor antagonist that works by increasing adrenaline and noradrenaline levels in the body, stimulating the “fight or flight” response, and thereby promoting alertness, energy, and motivation.[12] Yohimbine also supports fat burning by inhibiting a regulatory process in fat cells that not hinders fat burning.*

  • CNS stimulant that antagonizes alpha-2 adrenergic receptors*
  • Increases levels of catecholamines, such as adrenaline and noradrenaline*
  • Supports fat burning*

Huperzine A 1%

Whereas Choline Bitartrate helps directly increase acetylcholine production, Huperzine A works just a bit differently. Huperzine indirectly increases acetylcholine levels by sustaining the actions of acetylcholine in the body.*

How is this?

Well, Huperzine inhibits acetylcholinesterase, the enzyme responsible for acetylcholine breakdown.[13] Limiting acetylcholinesterase acitivity helps further enhance acetylcholine levels and prolongs its actions.*

The end result of all of this is laser-like focus during training.*

There’s more though! Huperzine also is a neuroprotectant as it defends against glutamine (the neuron death molecule)[14], and supports the creation of new brain cells![15]*

  • Selective inhibitor of acetylcholinesterase*
  • Promotes greater focus, learning, memory, and mood*
  • Prevents breakdown of acetylcholine*

Dosing

Consume 1-2 scoops with 8-10 oz of water 15-20 minutes prior to training to unleash your inner beast!
