A pre-workout is one of the essential supplements you should have in your arsenal. They provide an increase in energy, increased strength, better mental focus, more aggression, a better pump, and more productive workouts.
For those days when you have a huge session, or you’re lacking the energy or motivation, pre-workouts are a goldmine that will help you achieve your goals.
WHY USE A PRE-WORKOUT?
- Workout Harder
- Workout Longer
- Better Mental Focus
- Better Muscle Pump
- Faster Recovery
RP Max CNS Thermo pre-workout and PSI are high quality pre-workouts that allow you to work harder by increasing your energy and motivation, reducing fatigue, faster recovery, and also give you a great pump. The combination of ingredients has been scientifically selected to work synergistically to boost energy and performance.
RP Max is a stimulant based pre-workout that provides optimal central nervous system and adrenal gland stimulation to trigger a positive homeostatic energy release, improved cognitive ability, muscular and cardiovascular endurance.
PSI is a non-stim pre-workout that works to promote vasodilation, enhance nutrient and oxygen delivery to working muscle and improve muscle cell hydration and volumization.
" Vasodilation is where your blood vessels expand, or dilate to allow more blood flow; as blood carries nutrients and oxygen around your body, you get an increase in nutrient and oxygen delivery along with blood flow to working muscles."
HOW TO USE RP MAX / PSI?
There is a significant difference between the ingredients of RP Max pre-workout and PSI pre-workout as they both have a different purpose and contribute in a different way to enhancing your performance.
RP Max - Take 1 scoop of RP Max with 8-10 oz (240-295 mL) water 15-20 minutes before your workout. To get the most benefit out of RP Max, we recommend that you only use it on training days and not within 5 hours of going to sleep due to its stimulant-based nature. This makes RP Max an optimal addition to morning and lunchtime workouts.
PSI - Take 1 scoop of PSI with 8-10 oz (240-295 mL) water 20 minutes before your workout. As PSI is not stimulant based, it should be used in the place of RPM if training later in the day or at night (less than 5 hours before going to sleep).
Stacking - PSI can be stacked with RP Max so that you gain all the benefits of the stimulants and fat burner thermogenics from RPM along with the increased blood flow benefits from PSI’s vasodilation nutrient delivery system, contributing to a highly energetic, focussed workout along with an increase in muscle volumization and pump. This combination should only be used in the morning or for lunchtime workouts due to its stimulant-based nature.
WHAT’S IN RP MAX/PSI?
RP Max is a powerful CNS thermogenic formula that contains numerous stimulants so it should only be used on training days. The ingredients in RP Max act to synergistically increase energy, improve focus, increase metabolic rate and delay fatigue. The major CNS stimulants in RP Max that act as energy boosters and mental focus enhancers include caffeine, guarana seed extract and yerba mate leaf extract.
RP Max contains some of the most potent thermogenics and fat burners including bioperine, advantra Z and higenamine, which also acts as a bronchodilator. Also contained in RP Max are taurine, beta alanine, choline bitartrate and tyrosine which act as antioxidants, acid buffers and mental focus enhancers to allow you to workout longer and more intensely without experiencing symptoms of fatigue and lethargy.
PSI is a potent vasodilator nutrient delivery formula that contains scientifically selected non-stimulatory ingredients to promote vasodilation, enhance nutrient and oxygen delivery to working muscle and hydrate muscle cells to increase volumization and pump. The powerful vasodilator complex in PSI that improves blood flow and contributes to muscle fullness contains citrulline malate, arginine, agmatine sulfate, norvaline and beet root powder. PSI also contains antioxidants and acid buffers including taurine, tyrosine and alpha-ketoglutarate, which assist you to focus better, improve buffering capacity and workout harder and longer.
WILL I CRASH AFTER USING RP MAX OR PSI?
RP Max Pre-workout should not cause any post workout crash as it focuses on stimulating the CNS and reducing the blood brain barrier to improve focus and cognitive ability. There is also a limited amount of caffeine, dosed to ensure that you do not burn out your adrenal glands and release excessive cortisol (stress hormone which causes post workout crashes).
RP Max is a stimulatory pre-workout and can be stacked with PSI as it is a non-stimulatory pre-workout. PSI is stack safe and can be stacked with all EHPLabs products including RPM, OxyShred and Beyond BCAA’s.
WHY STACK RP MAX & PSI?
By stacking RP Max and PSI, you gain all the benefits of the stimulants and fat burner thermogenics from RPM along with the increased blood flow benefits from PSI’s vasodilation nutrient delivery system, contributing to a highly energetic, focussed workout along with an increase in muscle volumization and pump.
FAQ’S - RP MAX
How many servings of RP Max can I take per day?
We recommend taking no more than 2 scoops of RP Max CNS Thermo pre-workout per day. You should test your tolerance to stimulants by starting with ½ a scoop of RP Max and building up from there.
Compared to other pre-workouts I’ve used in the past, what makes RP Max unique?
Rather than overloading RP Max CNS Thermo Pre-workout with every possible ingredient, the scientists at EHPlabs focused on ensuring that the key attributes of a top quality pre-workout were focused on. RP Max Pre-Workout provides the optimal central nervous system and adrenal gland stimulation to trigger a positive homeostatic energy release, improved cognitive ability, muscular and cardiovascular endurance.
RP Max Pre-workout is also scientifically balanced to prevent a negative feedback physiological response to mitigate against post-workout stimulant crashes and adrenal gland exhaustion.
Why is RP Max such a fast acting product?
RP Max CNS Thermo Pre-workout includes an ingredient called “Bioperine”. Bioperine is a trademarked ingredient that promotes the bio-availability of the CNS and adrenal stimulant active ingredients. As such, your body is able to absorb the various active ingredients at a faster rate, which promotes an almost immediate physiological and mental reaction.
How long before my workout should I take RP Max?
Consume RP Max Pre-workout approximately 15-20 minutes prior to your workout to allow for maximum absorption.
Will RP Max give me a tingling sensation?
Yes, you will experience a slight tingling sensation around your mouth area from consuming 1 to 2 servings of RP Max Pre-workout. The cause of this tingling sensation is an amino acid ingredient called Beta Alanine, which when clinically dosed, promotes muscular endurance, anaerobic running capacity, power output and reduced muscular fatigue.
Will I experience any post workout crash after consuming RP Max Pre-workout?
RP Max Pre-workout should not cause any post workout crash as it focuses on stimulating the central nervous system and reducing the blood brain barrier to improve focus and cognitive ability. There is also a limited amount of caffeine,which ensures that you do not burn out your adrenal glands and release excessive cortisol (stress hormone which causes post workout crashes).
Do I have to take RP Max on an empty stomach?
When taken on an empty stomach, you will increase your ability to absorb RP Max Pre-workout more efficiently and maximize the effects of this pre-workout.
Can I take RP Max for non-physical related activities (i.e studying, etc)
Although RP Max pre-workout has been formulated as a pre-workout product, the key central nervous system stimulants, focus enhancers and crash buffers may assist people with other non-physical related activities such as studying.
Can I stack RP Max with PSI?
Yes, RP Max and PSI have been designed to be stacked together, and also used independently.
FAQ’S - PSI
How many servings of PSI can I take per day?
The recommended dose is 1 serving per day and we recommend taking no more than 2 scoops of PSI pre-workout per day. You should test your tolerance to PSI by starting with ½ a scoop first and slowly building up from there as required.
Why is PSI such a fast acting product?
PSI is fast acting due to its potent vasodilator delivery system containing ingredients such as Agmatine Sulfate and L-Arginine. These ingredients help to increase the bio-availability of nitric oxide leading to an increase in blood flow and oxygen and nutrient delivery. These ingredients have a flow on effect to each other which creates a strong physiological and mental response.
Compared to other pre-workouts I’ve used in the past, PSI seems to have smaller or more controlled dosages of various ingredients, does this mean I may not feel the effects of them?
PSI has been scientifically formulated to be one of the most effective non-stimulatory pre-workouts on the market. Instead of filling it with huge amounts of each ingredient, we have researched the optimal combination and concentration of ingredients that work to synergistically trigger a positive homeostatic energy release, improve cognitive ability, reduce fatigue and enhance muscular and cardiovascular endurance.
PSI is scientifically balanced and focused on the key ingredients required to provide optimal vasodilation to contribute to a great pump while also increasing mental focus without having excess levels of ingredients which would be wasted by your body otherwise. You will still feel the PSI pre-workout and notice a significant increase in blood flow.
What is vasodilation?
Vasodilation is the process where Nitric Oxide (NO) acts on your blood vessels to increase in diameter (dilate) which allows for an increase in blood flow around the body and to your working muscles.
This helps to improve oxygen and nutrient delivery while also delaying the effects of fatigue due to the transportation of metabolic by-products out of muscle cells. This in turn contributes to greater mental focus as more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your brain.
How long before my workout should I take PSI?
PSI should be consumed approximately 20 minutes before exercise to allow for maximal absorption.
Will PSI give me a tingling sensation?
No, PSI will not give you a tingling sensation as it does not contain the amino acid Beta Alanine. It will however increase the feeling of muscle fullness and 'pump' due to its vasodilator boosting effects along with a decrease in fatigue.
Does the person using PSI crash after the effects wear off?
PSI pre-workout should not cause any post-workout crash as it works by increasing blood flow around your body and improving mental focus and cognitive ability. It is non-stimulatory so there is very little effect on your adrenal glands and cortisol.
Can I use PSI in the late afternoon? (less that 5 hours before bed, will if affect my sleep?)
Yes, you can use PSI pre-workout in the late afternoon as it is a non-stimulatory supplement. It should not effect your sleep as it focuses on improving blood flow and helps to remove metabolic by-products from your muscles.
Do I have to take PSI on an empty stomach?
You don't have to take PSI on an empty stomach, however, it is beneficial to take PSI 1-2 hours after you have eaten so that it is quickly absorbed which helps to maximize the effects of this pre-workout.
Can I take PSI for non-physical related activities (ie. studying, etc)
Although PSI pre-workout has been formulated as a pre-workout product, the key cognitive ability and mental focus enhancers, along with vasodilators may assist people with other non-physical related activities such as studying due to the increase in blood flow and oxygen delivery to the brain.
Can I stack RP Max (stimulant induced pre-workout) with PSI (low stimulant induced pre-workout)?
Yes, PSI and RP Max have been designed to be stacked together while also being used independently.
