Physique Enhancing Sciences (PES) Caffeine-Free High Volume Pre Workout (245g, 18 servings)
No matter who you are - boy or girl - no one likes a lacklustre workout; a workout where things just don't 'gel' and your muscles refuse to respond no matter how many sets and reps you do! Well, PES's High Volume 'pump product' has been carefully formulated to help avoid just this situation offering a formula unrivalled for quality and effectiveness delivering rapid, unmissable results including improved vascularity, enhanced endurance, better mind-muscle focus...and a great taste across the two High Volume flavours too!
PES High Volume Nitric Oxide Matrix...what makes this 'pump' product so different?
PES are never happy to push out another 'me too' product and, once again, they don't dissappoint with High Volume! After a year of dilligent research they have formulated a product that pulls no punches...it quite simply gives you more of what you what and none of what you don't. PES wanted to deliver a product that offers the best pumps ever experienced, amazing workouts (they need you to feel amazing during your workout!) and, most crucially, long-lasting pumps; a product that gorges the muscles and doesn't just fizzle out 45 mins later. A product focused on the long-term benefits of an amazing 'pump'.
How have PES delivered on promises here?
By formulating PES High Volume (245g) with select, proven ingredients in, importantly, generous, genuinely effective doses (no expense spared!) they give us a product that, as usual, stands apart from the rest. Check out their ingredient breakdown below for a mini-snapshot...
Pure L-Citrulline (no Malate here…)
L-Citrulline is one of the best NO ingredients on the market, but it is constantly used at tiny serving sizes.
But stop wasting your money on Citrulline Malate in a pre-workout product. You need Pure L-Citrulline. The citrulline malate found in products is just a blend of L-Citrulline and L-Malate. That means, the 4 grams of L-Citrulline that is found in High Volume is equivalent to the citrulline content in 8 grams of citrulline malate! That’s what we do at PES…we give you more of what you need.
Nitrates – 'Pumps' for hours!
The key with pre-workout pump products is to increase NO, do it quickly, and have it last past the end of your workout. In PES's search for a long-lasting pump ingredient, we focused on the compound nitrate. Not just any nitrate, but a patented amino nitrate
Nitrate, in addition to having an 8 hour half-life, uses a unique pathway to boost NO. To be specific, nitrates bypass the enzyme that L-Citrulline relies on, eNOS, which has a “saturation point” at which no further concentration can increase its activity. This means that you are not limited to only the pump of L-Citrulline and other ingredients using its mechanism with the combination of nitrate and L-Citrulline. You see, nitrate acts as an “NO donor,” meaning it converts to NO directly via a 2-step process called the nitrate-nitrite-nitric oxide pathway…no enzymes or restriction points involved!
Nitric Oxide – A New Pathway For Muscle?
For a long time, it’s been unclear whether or not “the pump” actually improves muscle growth. Recent research done in-vitro now suggests that nitric oxide (NO), may have action in building muscle. Not been studied yet in human trials, but it is definitely something PES are keeping an eye on.
A few months ago AmentoMAX was released as a single ingredient product. As expected, it quickly took off with popularity and raving fans for its pre-workout use. So of course, PES knew they had to use AmentoMAX in High Volume, to bring the unique angle to every workout.
The final trigger in muscle contraction is an increase in calcium in the muscle cell. The calcium binds to key muscle proteins that result in contraction, and it has been shown that the more calcium released into the muscle cell, the more force is produced.
While not studied yet directly in humans, Amentoflavone possesses the highly unique ability to increase calcium release, in vitro. In fact, essentially only one other commonly found compound shares this mechanism: caffeine. This increase in muscular calcium concentration is part of the reason why caffeine is an ergogen (capable of improving exercise performance).
Amentoflavone will not give the same physical stimulation as caffeine, making it a perfect fit in this stimulant-free formula.
HydroMax® and Taurine – High Volume Achieved
HydroMax® is a high potency glycerol compound. Glycerol is an ingredient that gets transported to your plasma after ingestion…and it doesn’t leave the plasma for a long time. While in the plasma, glycerol sucks up water by acting as a sponge. People love Glycerol for the pump/fullness feel it gives them, but have hated it for the gritty texture it has in their cup. It could be like drinking sand! Until HydroMax® solved that nasty little problem.
Taurine is a compound that localizes primarily to the intracellular muscle, and like glycerol, where taurine goes, water follows. This makes taurine a great compound to complement HydroMax®.
So...are you ready to 'FEEL THE VOLUME'?
With the right ingredients and the right doses it's hard to find a product that comes close to new PES High Volume...and we've had great results combining High Volume with #teampicknmix favourite, PES Alphamine Thermogenic Powder, in a bit of a cheeky 'stack' (aka 'Mix'!) The ultimate pre-workout combo (followed by PES Select Protein, of course!!)
Yep, big, big fans of their Select Protein over here, we LOVE PES over here and, once you experience PES High Volume, we think you will call every other pump product 'flat.' It's time to FEEL THE VOLUME, and - as with their proteins, thermogenics and more - get with the brand that brings the formulas that set the standard.
