Supercharge your workout with BEFORE, Classified Nutrition's natural pre-workout supplement.
BEFORE is formulated with Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s), Creatine Monohydrate and L-Carnitine L-Tartate.
Why we designed BEFORE:
What does your body need before training?
- Mental and physical focus
- An ability to combat the accumulation of metabolites that cause fatigue, reduce strength and limit power
- An ability to prevent or limit catabolism (muscle breakdown)
- An increase in the delivery of nutrients to cause adaptation in real time
Based on these objectives, we came up with a simple but potent product. The ingredient list is short, which is just the way we think things should be.
Why use 20 active ingredients when 3 will do? When dosed correctly, these 3 ingredients will work synergistically in the body to effectively take your training to new heights.
Whether you are looking to crush a long run, change your body composition, pack on some mass, sprint faster, jump higher, or just get stronger, BEFORE can take you to the next level. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAA’s)
The Branched Chain Amino Acids are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. These 3 essential amino acids exist naturally in every protein source, though their ratio may change depending on that source.
Leucine is extremely important since it is necessary for muscle protein synthesis, and thus for muscle hypertrophy and other muscular adaptations. Since it is responsible for the signaling of muscle protein synthesis, it is an important part of pre-training and post-training nutrition.
Isoleucine is a vital part of glucose metabolism and is responsible for increasing glucose uptake, thereby delivering fuel to working cells. Isoleucine and valine can both be directly metabolized into glucose, thus sparing stored glycogen in the muscles and liver, and also limiting the amount of muscle protein that is broken down during training to maintain glucose levels.
BCAA supplementation has been shown to suppress the production and action of specific proteins that cause muscle atrophy. Supplementation has also been shown to reduce fatigue, increase the use of stored fat as fuel during exercise, improve the time-to-exhaustion for aerobic exercise, and reduce perceived exertion.
Good old creatine monohydrate does not get the praise it deserves. This stuff is the single most effective ingredient on the market. Creatine monohydrate has been shown to promote neurological, as well as cardiopulmonary, health.
In addition to its protective benefits, it is very effective at increasing muscular strength and power, allowing for increased exercise intensity, training volume, and maintaining/increasing lean body mass. It assists with total-body hydration, improves anaerobic running capacity, reduces fatigue, and improves subjective well-being.
Carnitine is a compound made naturally within the body. It plays a role in energy metabolism, as well as in the protection of cellular mitochondria (the “power plant” of the cell).
This specific form of carnitine has been shown to increase total muscle carnitine content and thereby reduce the production of lactate and feelings of fatigue. It has also been linked to reductions in muscle damage as well as reductions in muscle soreness following exercise.
Research is very clear that these 3 ingredients are extremely powerful, but only when ingested at effective doses. Just because a product contains all 3 of these ingredients does not mean it will be able to live up to these scientific claims.
No other product on the market contains the same doses, or effectiveness, of these proven ingredients found in Classified Nutrition’s BEFORE. When you take BEFORE prior to training or competition, you are giving your body exactly what it needs to work at peak performance. Try BEFORE today!
