The Last Pre-Workout You'll Ever Need

 

Have you been finding yourself changing pre-workouts every few weeks? Are you satisfied the first 1-2 times you use a new one, but by the end of the tub you find yourself chasing that initial feeling you haven’t felt in weeks? You are not alone. In fact, that was the #1 complaint by all pre-workout users we questioned over the past year.

 

With all of the pre-workouts out there simply trying to put a new spin on stimulants, how many of them actually contain ingredients that can contribute to the workout you are about to give all of your effort to? If you are a dedicated athlete you know that you have to spend hours in the gym week in and week out for incremental gains over time. So why shouldn’t the product dedicated solely to enhancing your workout have the same mindset? What good is a blend of stimulants with zero ingredients for the long term approach of bodybuilding and training?

 

Prolific has a unique formula based on cognitive, performance-driven, pump-packed, and energizing components to deliver a newfound experience that never gets dull. This specific formula is centered around the most underrated phenomenon during your training: The Mind Muscle Connection. Prolific cares about every rep of every workout from beginning to end, because we know that is what truly matters for your goals.

 

The Mind Muscle Connection

Have you ever showed up to the gym feeling great, thinking it was going to be another solid day of lifting, but instead for some reason you just have a terrible workout? You feel disconnected, suddenly unfocused, and beyond frustrated by the end of your session. It sounds like you had some serious mind muscle disconnection.

 

This special connection is what you are focused on in every rep you take. Feeling the firing of muscle fibers, and the powerful contraction during each rep. Supercharging this mechanism will give you an all new workout experience. Feel the power in each rep, the dominating contraction, and enjoy the lasting pump after every set.

 

We have developed a special formula to create the ultimate foundation for getting your mind and body working in harmony as the ultimate powerhouse.

 

More Of What You Need. None Of What You Don't

In typical PEScience fashion, we have delivered a formula that goes above and beyond. Each 2-scoop serving of Prolific contains 6 grams of L-Citrulline, the citrulline equivalence of 12 grams citrulline malate. 6 grams is far above the competition...so pump and endurance know no boundaries with Prolific.

 

We have a novel blend of caffeine using both caffeine anhydrous and Infinergy™ (dicaffeine malate), coupled with theanine for explosive energy.

 

We have also left out all of the mundane ingredients you find in traditional copycat pre-workouts all over the market today, like creatine and beta-alanine. It still blows our minds that these ingredients are used in pre-workouts, considering all of their scientific data is based on continuous use over time, not an acute effect after one dose. Unfortunately just because your skin is tingling doesn’t mean your workout will be better.

Why You’ve Lost Muscle During Quarantine, Despite Working Out at Home

If you were working out regularly and doing a strength training program at the gym before COVID-19 hit, good for you! Increasing your lean muscle mass not only helps you to look more toned, but also helps to reduce body fat and boost your energy levels. But when gyms around the country shut down earlier this spring, many of us were left without access to weights and equipment to continue on our programs. While it’s entirely possible to stay in shape while stuck at home, you may be wondering how much muscle you’ve lost during quarantine (the bad news: at least some). Here’s what the experts say.

How muscle is built

Understanding the process of how to build muscle is important to realizing how it is lost. You build muscle strength and endurance by repeatedly stressing that muscle through higher loads and longer use, respectively, says William O. Roberts, M.D., M.S., FACSM, a family medicine physician at M Health in St. Paul, Minnesota, and past president of the American College of Sports Medicine. That boils down to a simple concept: to achieve hypertrophy (or make your muscles bigger), you either have to lift heavier weights or increase your repetitions of those lifts. When you’re first starting a resistance training program, most of your strength gains are related to improved muscle recruitment and neural control, says Evan Jay, PA-C, ATC, a certified physician assistant and athletic trainer with Redefine Healthcare in New Jersey. After that initial phase, your muscles will grow regardless of your training technique and continue to improve overall strength, though at a much slower rate, he adds. There are other factors that go into building muscle too, says Dr. Roberts, such as adequate nutrition, sleep and recovery (i.e., rest days). Those all can vary person to person, but if you don’t continuously challenge your muscles, you’ll start to see your strength decrease. Muscle growth is a slow process that requires dedication; while conversely, the opposite can happen much more quickly. “I like to say muscle is a lot like money; it’s hard to get and easy to lose,” says Dr. Roberts.

What happens when you stop lifting heavy weights

While there’s been a lot of research on the area of muscular strength, there’s also a lot we don’t know about mechanisms responsible for loss of strength, says Nicole Mendola, M.S., ACSM-CEP, ACSM-GEI, a registered clinical exercise physiologist and instructor of exercise science and wellness at Norwalk Community College in Connecticut. The bottom line is that periods of “detraining”—meaning no activity, or a large reduction in intensity of activity—generally affect each person differently, depending on your current training status, how long you’ve been training and your age, says Mendola. (The older you are, the faster you lose strength; it’s a natural response to aging, even if you’ve worked hard to build muscle mass, she adds.) Generally speaking, however, the average person is going to start experiencing incremental decreases in muscle starting at around four weeks of detraining, says Mendola; Jay predicts it may begin slightly earlier, in as little as two or three weeks. For an athlete who’s gone through years of intense training, the loss will be more pronounced. “In longer periods of detraining, we start to see more of that muscle atrophy,” explains Mendola. But it may not be as much, or happen as quickly, as you might think. A study published in the peer-reviewed journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise examining two groups of older (ages 65-75) and younger (ages 20-30) individuals, both men and women, looked at the results of a 9-week training program measuring knee extensor strength, followed by a 31-week detraining period. Both older and younger groups experienced a decline in strength, but it didn’t occur until the 12th week of detraining.

Why it's hard to build muscle strength at home

We’ve all seen videos on social media of trainers using household items such as bottles of laundry detergent or backpacks filled with canned goods as makeshift weights. While those types of objects are a good substitute for strength training when you don’t have access to a gym regularly, your body is going to adapt to them, says Mendola—meaning you won’t see muscle gains after a certain point. If you weren’t training before and start lifting using household objects, you will see improvement, but only until your body adapts to that load. Then, you’re not going to adapt further unless you lift heavier objects, Mendola adds. Simply put, you need access to heavier equipment if you’re looking to greatly improve your strength.

How to avoid losing muscle strength

Though the reality of losing muscle while staying at home isn’t easy to hear, there are some things you can do to prevent major muscle atrophy. First, remember that even if you’re going from heavy-weight resistance training to bodyweight training (i.e., swapping bench press for push-ups), it’s better than doing nothing, says Mendola. “You will be able to maintain your strength to a certain extent, but if that continues for a prolonged period of time, that intensity will not be the same as training in the gym,” she explains. “Expect you’re going to have some decrease in your strength, but that it won’t be totally back to square one.” There are also moves you can do at home to help maintain your muscle mass without going to the gym. One example is doing closed kinetic chain exercises to complete failure, says CJ Hammond, a Los Angeles-based NASM certified trainer who works with RSP Nutrition. These are movements where your hands and feet are fixed to a stationary object and don’t move throughout the exercise—such as a squat. The key here is focusing on reps till failure. When performing repetitions until you can’t do even one more, it triggers a process in the body that helps to build muscle. “The complete failure of slow twitch muscle fibers will force the fast muscle fibers to take over,” explains Hammond. “This will trick your neural receptors to be as responsive to your 120th rep as if you’re maxing out [with a heavy weight], which will give the body the ability to achieve hypertrophy.” (FYI: hypertrophy is another word for increasing muscle size.) You can also use resistance bands to help build strength. “If you have an imagination and the ability to plug in drop sets, this will give you the ability to fatigue large muscle fibers and fast twitch muscle fibers,” says Hammond. You’ll need to follow a consistent program of higher sets and higher reps to increase the volume if your bands can’t give you the high resistance you’re used to at the gym, Hammond adds.

Easing back into a gym routine

When the time comes and gyms in your area reopen—and you feel comfortable and safe returning to those spaces—you’ll need to do an assessment of where your strength currently lies, rather than picking back up using the same weights as you were previously. You should be conservative in starting your resistance training again, says Mendola, and see how one set feels at a slightly lower weight before jumping in with a heavy load. It’s also important to consider that your everyday movement may have changed your body’s range of motion, too. If you’ve been working from home the past few months, there’s a good chance you’ve been sitting more and moving less, which may have impacted your fluidity of movement. Ideally, Mendola recommends connecting with a personal trainer or exercise physiologist (if you can) to help you gauge where your strength is currently at and develop a strength-training plan for you moving forward.
