OUTWORK THE COMPETITION
If you’re worried about what you ate or didn’t eat before you hit the iron or lace up the spikes, the answer is a resounding NO!
What you put in your body before your workout determines what you get out of it during your workout!
The saying goes “You are what you eat”, however it can also be said you perform how you eat as well. Preworkout nutrition will literally set the stage for the effort you can generate (and more importantly…sustain) when the stakes are at their highest. Rely on what I call a “shotgun” approach and you’re results will be inconsistent and marginal at best. Instead…fuel your body for serious performance. The best competitors in the world leave nothing to chance so why should you? Feel the difference as you start cranking out extra reps you never thought you were capable of…and see the difference those extra reps make to your body when you find it easier than ever to build muscle!
Delivering the exact nutrients your muscles need…exactly when you need them.
If you ever took the time to look at what most supplement companies put into their preworkout formulations you might never take one again…not if you cared about your health at least. At ATHLEAN-Rx, we care not only about your health but your performance as well, and are committed to delivering you only the safest, most well researched and proven ingredients to boost the results you get out of every workout without ever sacrificing your well being in the process.
Not ALL training yields results. Focused, intense and energized training does. Be prepared. It’s time to X-CITE your training.
ATHLEAN RX-1 X-CITE
ATHLEAN XCITE CONTAINS: 3200mg

One of the best benefits of L-Citrulline DL-Malate is enhanced ATP production. This is needed by every living cell in the body and equates to higher energy levels. This is even more important for muscles which are engaged in heavy training or otherwise working. Increased ATP production also leads to the ability to train harder and recover faster.
- Improves muscle endurance and aerobic performance
- Boosts energy
- Increases ATP production allowing for harder training and faster recovery
- Supports lean muscle mass gains
ATHLEAN XCITE CONTAINS: 2g (4g when taken with a stack)
Creatine hydrochloride’s main benefit is helping to build muscle faster and easier. This is thought to be due to an increase in the production and supply of ATP to working muscle cells. This also provides more energy to the muscles, helping to avoid lactic acid build-up and allowing for longer and more intense workouts.
- Increases muscle strength and power
- Allows for faster and easier muscle growth
- Is better absorbed than Creatine Monohydrate and does not require a loading phase
- Reduces muscle damage and post workout soreness
ATHLEAN XCITE CONTAINS: 1.5g
One huge benefit of L-Tyrosine supplementation is that it can be useful for weight loss. It does this by improving some of the neurobiological disturbances typically caused by dietary restrictions. Medical research also indicates that L-Tyrosine supplementation can sharpen the memory, if taken on a regular basis. Tyrosine is able to protect the nerves from toxins and it is even able to cross the blood-brain barrier, which is one of the reasons why it is effective at raising the levels of key neurotransmitters. Another interesting l-tyrosine benefit is it helps the body adjust to situations of cold and fatigue.
