MRE Bars (12 ct.)
Just when you didn't think MRE could get any better we upped our game with MRE Bar. This real food bar will change your outlook on bars forever as the days of heavy sugar alcohols added to your bars are long gone. Just like with the powdered MRE, the bar contains only real food sources which won't upset your stomach, cause cramping, or give you unwanted gas.
A lot of bars on the shelf at the store have excess amounts of sugar ranging from 15g and even above 20g per bar! A snack or meal replacement that’s healthy limits your sugar intake and doesn’t bring it to excess. Not only that, there’s usually a ton of carbs and low protein or just a huge imbalance in the macro count with a messed-up nutrition panel. The MRE bar has a meager 6g of sugar with a healthy ratio 29g of carbohydrates and 20g of protein that’s balanced with 9g of fats. These macro counts are perfect to fuel your workout without a drastic insulin spike and perform at your best. Packing only 260 total calories per bar, it’s the perfect snack size meal while on the go, or pre-workout, that’s loaded with proper nutrition made from real food and won’t make you feel overfull.
Bars can be pretty gross when they’re all chewy and one big block of toffee rather than looking like appetizing food. Nobody wants to wear their snack on their fingers because it’s sticky or have a bar that’s too hard to break apart, difficult to chew and gets stuck in your teeth. A meal replacement bar should feel like eating food! The MRE Bar easily breaks apart with an amazing food-like texture that’s pleasant to chew. MRE Bar looks like real food, tastes like real food and chews like real food.
Made from Real Food
When eating a meal replacement, you should be eating real food. Just like MRE powder, MRE Bar is made from real food! A lot of bars have artificial main ingredients – who wants to eat ingredients that you can’t even pronounce the name of? Unlike the rest of the bars on the shelf, MRE Bar has ingredients like oats, salmon, chicken, eggs, brown rice and sweet potato. These ingredients give the MRE bar an amazing taste, unmatched flavor and the nutrition that gives you sustained energy throughout the day.
Just like the shake, the MRE Bar is absolutely delicious in any flavor. There is no guess work when it comes to flavors – you know what you’re eating as soon as it hits your tongue. Unlike other bars, MRE Bar is true to flavor name and what you read is what you get. MRE Bar is like having dessert for a snack, but with real whole food and the macros you need to fit your day.
Sometimes carrying a shaker and finding water – like on a road trip or in the middle of running errands – is not always possible. Not only that, you might not want to replace an entire meal with five hundred calories from the traditional MRE, but just have a snack to curb your hunger and cravings. Your prayers have been answered with the MRE Bar, no shaker, less calories and just a snack that you can eat instead of drink. It’s the same superior ingredients made of real whole foods, but with snack size calories and more flavor than you can ask for.

5150 High Stimulant Pre-Workout
The NEW! 5150 Legendary Series delivers a supercharged punch with over 400mg of Caffeine per serving, plus the revolutionary energy and nootropic Cocoabuterol®
WELCOME TO 5150 LEGENDARY SERIES HIGH-STIM PRE-WORKOUT
If you’re a true master of the craft and lifting is your life then you already know 5% Nutrition is the only LIFESTYLE to GROW by. The very name of this product should be warning enough that you’re heading into deeper waters.
What is the meaning of 5150?
Rich Piana originally went with the name “5150” for this ultra-high stimulant pre-workout because he wanted to convey that this pre-workout was not for the ordinary, but for only the serious stim junkies among us. And while Rich wasn’t insinuating that taking a few scoops of 5150 pre-workout would result in a 72-hour “involuntary psychiatric hold”, he wanted to convey that this product meant business!
Have you grown bored of other pre-workouts, having ‘tried them all’ before getting this point? Do the results you seek lay beyond the normal conditions of training? Do you need to focus and energize your workout while hydrating your muscles and keeping your body anabolic?
If yes, then you may have met the qualifications to start training like a true 5%ER; to enter the territory where only a few thrive: mass monster territory. If you routinely seek the pain of a long training session and routinely need to be spotted by at least two smaller freaks of the gym, then we’d like to welcome you to 5150 Legendary Series High-Stim Pre-Workout.
STIM-CRAZY CAFFEINE COMPLEX - 513 mg
Consisting of Caffeine Anhydrous, Dicaffeine Malate, Theobromine, Green Tea, Yerba Mate Extract, Guarana Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, and Gotu Kola Extract. This is a precise combination of eight types of caffeine and sourced specifically to create a smooth, extended energy curve while effectively eliminating the jitters of caffeine and the “caffeine crash” that accompanies most highly caffeinated products.
The new and improved 5150 Legendary Series, High-Stim Pre-Workout has arrived. This supercharged formula will have the stim-junkies lined up, again! With just a single scoop of 5150 over 400mg of total caffeine will begin to take hold and course through your veins. Prepare yourself for what’s next, blasting yourself into a gym session fueled by a blend of caffeine frp, 8 sources:
COCOABUTEROL® Cocoa Alkaloid Extract (Theobroma caco L.) Cocoabuterol® is a new dietary weight loss supplement to activate thermogenic fat burning within the body while boosting your energy and mood. The natural alkaloids in Cocoabuterol® can significantly increase cAMP via beta-adrenoceptor which activate thermogenic fat burning and muscle building functions. This translates to fat burning PLUS support for the building of lean muscle tissue without the side effects.
Compared with caffeine, Cocoabuterol® doesn’t have the edginess often associated with caffeine while it lasts longer and while similarly balancing the onramp and offramp of caffeine into your body, enhancing caffeine’s most desirable qualities. Because Cocoabuterol® acts to smooth out the caffeine curve, you’re unlikely to experience the shakes and jitteriness associated with excessive caffeine consumption.
CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS Commonly used as a fast-acting energy source, Caffeine Anhydrous has been used in many of the best pre-workouts and energy-based products alike. This ingredient will assist with mental alertness as it stimulates the central nervous system, making your energy output much more enhanced in a short amount of time.
DI-CAFFEINE MALATE What makes Di-Caffeine Malate so interesting is the time-released energy production that is so heavily influenced and reflected by this ingredient. Just like caffeine, this specific ingredient helps improve energy levels and mental focus. Best of all, Di-CM helps to improve endurance and stamina, giving you the energy to combat fatigue accrued during your workout.
THEOBROMINE Theobromine is similar in structure to caffeine and falls into the same class of methylxanthine compounds. Although theobromine is similar in structure to caffeine, it’s only about 1/10th the strength of caffeine.
Theobromine is somewhat unique in that compared to most stimulants, it's actually been shown to decrease blood pressure. It has mild vasodilating properties, similar to the amino acid Arginine, and is believed to increase blood flow.
YOHIMBINE HCL Yohimbine hydrochloride (HCl) is a synthetic form of Yohimbine, the active chemical found in Yohimbe Tree bark, and widely studied for its fat-loss and aphrodisiac properties. Research shows that it can increase blood flow, nerve impulse transmission, and excitability in the genital area.
OTHER SOURCES OF CAFFEINE Caffeine sourced from Green Tea leaves, Yerba Mate Extract, Guarana Seed Extract (Paullinia cupana), Rauvolfia Canescens (Alpha-Yohimbine), Green Coffee Bean Extract (Seed), and Gotu Kola Extract (Centella asiatica).
Our K-XR Pre-Workout supplement is solution to your high stimulant pre-workout needs. K-XR delivers everything you need, when you need it prior to training.
RELENTLESS ENERGY & STAMINA
400mg caffeine split between fast acting and slow release forms, for ENDLESS energy during the most intense training sessions.
PUMPS & PERFORMANCE
Patented CarnoSyn® Beta Alanine, Theobromine and L-Taurine to boost endurance, stamina, pumps, and hydration.
K-XR Pre-Workout supplement provides potent focus boosters including Choline Bitartrate and Huperzine A, to give tunnel vision focus and superior mind-muscle connection.
Longer workouts with greater intensity yields superior results in the gym, and bigger gains all around!
How many scoops of pre-workout supplement do I take?
On training days, consume 1 scoop of the supplement 15-30 minutes pre-workout. If you are sensitive to caffeine, assess tolerance with ½ scoop for your initial serving.
Should I take more than 1 scoop?
NO! We do not recommended to ever consume more than 1 scoop at a time.
How much caffeine does K-XR Pre-Workout contain?
K-XR contains a total of 400mg caffeine from its tri-stage blend of Caffeine Citrate, Caffeine Anhydrous and Infinergy™ DiCaffeine Malate.
Does K-XR contain creatine?
K-XR is a creatine-free, high stimulant, focus, and endurance pre-workout supplement, that provides ingredients needed immediately prior to training for superior performance.
Can K-XR Pre-Workout be combined with a fat burner?
It is NOT recommended to stack K-XR with any other stimulant based products.
Crea-TEN includes ten of the most effective forms of Creatine available on the market today in order to maximize your performance through increased absorption. Top benefits include muscular growth, extended power, endurance, and all without loading.
Creatine is usually one of the first supplements an athlete will try. In fact, it’s so popular it’s a key product in the supplement arsenal of almost all advanced athletes.
The reason? It works! No other supplement has been as tested and proven effective the way creatine has. What does Creatine do? Creatine helps increase the muscle’s stores of phosphocreatine which is a component of the ATP system of energy. The body utilizes this for short bursts of muscular energy like high-intensity exercise. However, It depletes rapidly and must be replenished quickly to allow continued bursts of muscular energy. Creatine supports ATP regeneration by allowing the athlete to work out longer. Creatine also supports muscular hydration by pulling water into the muscle cells which creates those huge pumps craved by many bodybuilders and athletes. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and supports muscle growth.(1,2,3,4,5)
The most common version is the original Creatine Monohydrate but this version does have absorption problems and may cause gastric discomfort in some users.
Realizing that Creatine Monohydrate falls short when it comes to absorption, Rich Piana 5% Nutrition wanted to find a better way. Crea-TEN solves the absorption problems that plague many creatine formulas by combining the ten most effective forms of Creatine on the market thereby creating an advanced blend that promotes exceptional absorption. We wanted to go further so we included our exclusive Creatine Accelerate Blend to ensure the muscles are getting every last drop of our Creatine Blend for maximum results. After all, it doesn’t matter how effective a supplement is if the body can’t absorb it.
Creatine Blend 5 grams - Crea-TEN consists of the 10 most effective and best-absorbed versions of Creatine:
Creatine MagnaPower® (Magnesium Creatine Chelate)– This is a trademarked version of Creatine that’s bonded to a chelated form of magnesium for improved absorption. Chelated minerals are considered one of the best forms of minerals when it comes to absorption.
Tri-Creatine Malate– This form is a combination of Creatine and Malic Acid, which also plays a role in energy metabolism. This means that this version of Creatine should result in increased muscular endurance over other versions.
Creatine Anhydrous– This is Creatine Monohydrate with all the moisture removed thereby creating a more concentrated Creatine.
Creatine Monohydrate– This is a trademarked version of the original Creatine that started it all way back in the early 90’s, Creatine Monohydrate. This version is the most tested and proven form of Creatine on the market. To improve absorption, our creatine uses micronized Creatine particles.
Creatine Citrate– This version bonds Creatine with Citric Acid, another component of the body’s energy system that should help increase muscular endurance.
Creatine Pyruvate– One thing Crea-TEN does and does very well is take the idea of supporting the energy systems of the body and including several types of Creatine that enhance muscular energy, such as Creatine Pyruvate. This makes sense since one of the main benefits of Creatine is increased endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester– This is one of the first versions of Creatine that targeted the absorption problems associated with the original Monohydrate version and has since become one of the most popular forms of Creatine on the market.
Creatine AKG– This version attaches Creatine to an Alpha-Ketoglutarate molecule which targets improved endurance.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Malate– This is the Ethyl Ester version that is further attached to Malic Acid. The trend here is pretty straightforward: emphasize the endurance aspects of Creatine. If you can optimize the energy systems of the body you can optimize your workouts.
Creatine Gluconate– Back in the day when Creatine was a new supplement, it was suggested to take it with a simple sugar such as fruit juice to enhance absorption. This version targets that idea by attaching Creatine to a fast-acting glucose.
Creatine Accelerate Blend 1590 mg - Consisting of Taurine, Betaine, Gymnema Sylvestre, Black Pepper, Vanadium, Banaba, and Fenugreek. This complex improves absorption and utilization.
Taurine– When the talk turns to cell volume, Creatine is usually the first nutrient you think of. Cell volume simply means that water is pulled into the muscles thereby increasing muscle fullness. This is also known as water-based pumps. One of the ingredients that are often paired with Creatine to enhance this process is Taurine and is included in Crea-TEN for that reason.
Betaine Anhydrous– This is a newer ingredient on the supplement marketplace that’s become increasingly common in many Creatine formulas due to Betaine’s potential to enhance muscle cell volume by pulling water into the muscles.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract- This is a potent insulin-enhancing herb often found in Glucose Disposal Agents. Gymnema helps keep blood sugar levels stable and helps drive carbs into your muscle cells - which also means it pulls in water for more muscle cell volume.(6)
BioPerine® Black Pepper– This is a patented form of Black Pepper used in many supplements to enhance overall nutrient absorption.
Banaba Powder– This herb is used because it enhances the delivery of glucose to your muscles. If you recall that Creatine was originally combined with a simple sugar to improve absorption you can understand why Banaba is included here.(8)
Fenugreek Seed Extract- Fenugreek is typically thought of as a natural testosterone booster. We’re using it in our Creatine Accelerant Blend because it has also been shown to help lower levels of blood glucose thereby avoiding unwanted insulin spikes.(9)
Kill It Reloaded
The NEW Ultimate Pre-Workout! – Energy, Pumps, Focus, Endurance & Performance with GlycerSize™, Caffeine, L-Citrulline, & Creatine!†
This is the newest, most potent version of a classic and it’s designed to completely dominate the stim-based pre-workout category!
When you walk into the gym, you want a pre-workout that gives you everything you need to drive you through your most intense training sessions. Extreme energy, ultra-sharp focus, huge pumps, improved endurance, increased strength, and the fabled mind-muscle connection.†We designed Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series to be your go-to pre-workout every time you train.
Optimized Nitric Oxide Blend Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series maximizes muscle pump in two ways: we use ingredients that optimize muscle cell volume and by pulling water into the muscles for insane pumps.
GlycerSize™ We start the process with a complex including a huge 3 grams of the revolutionary GlycerSize™, the new King of Glycerol supplements. This compound solves the stability problem that’s dogged every other form of Glycerol. GlycerSize™ is hands-down the most stable form of Glycerol available on the market today. This cutting-edge ingredient will not clump, absorbs better, and mixes easier than any other type of Glycerol on the market.
Next, we’ve added Taurine to help pull water into the muscles and push the pump even further. There’s also 1 gram betaine, which combines with GlycerSize™, taurine, and 3 types of creatine for insane water-based pumps.3
We don’t stop there though! We take the pump to the extreme by increasing nitric oxide production thanks to 4 grams of pure L-Citrulline2...not the diluted Citrulline/Malic Acid combination used by most companies to save money. We’re talking pure L-Citrulline, the most effective nitric oxide booster on the market. Then, we add Nitrosigine™, a patented complex consisting ofbonded arginine silicate. This ingredient stimulates N. O. production and increases vasodilation, which means bigger pumps than ever before.
Every pre-workout gives you something for muscle pumps but no other pre-workout on the market gives you the powerful 1-2 combination that Kill It Reloaded Legendary Series does! Dare to compare and you will see that the competition doesn’t even come close.
3 Forms of Caffeine for a jitter-free workout! Caffeine Anhydrous + Caffeine Citrate + InFinergy™ Di-Caffeine Malate
Now with 328mg of caffeine from three different sources, our innovative Stim Blend consists of Caffeine Anhydrous, Caffeine Citrate, and InFinergy™ Di-Caffeine Malate. Don’t worry, unlike other pre-workouts, our stimulant blend avoids the jitters and mid-workout crash. You’ll experience an immediate rush of energy while keeping that energy flowing throughout your workout.1
Creatine Blend A powerful 2.5-gram Creatine Blend was long overdue to be back in a pre-workout again. The Kill It Reloaded Creatine Blend combines Creatine Anhydrous, Creatine Monohydrate, and Creatine Pyruvate to provide maximum endurance and improved strength, as well as increased cell volume and it does so without gastric discomfort or bloating. That’s Creatine done right. To block fatigue and give you maximum endurance, there’s 2 grams of Beta-Alanine so you can push through the pain zone and hit those growth reps; exactly what a pre-workout should do.
Nootropic Blend Our advanced Nootropic Blend now has 500 mg of Choline Bitartrate, plus 100 mg L-Theanine and 100 mcg Huperzine A to ramp up focus, increase motivation and give you the must have mind-muscle connection. Now you can Kill It in the gym even more every time you walk in.
Raw Coconut Water Concentrate Finally, we’ve added 100mg of Raw Coconut water Concentrate for hydration. Who wants to be dehydrated during your workout, right?
Liver & Organ Defender
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Liver & Organ Defender is a complete vital organ support formula that is effectively dosed to promote optimal health of the liver, heart, prostate, kidneys, and skin.
The aggressive supplement and nutrition choices that bodybuilders follow can put immense strain on their liver and other internal organs. Liver & Organ Defender is designed to support your vital organs despite the extreme lifestyle habits of bodybuilders and other athletes. Taking care of your health makes a lot of sense, especially now, and with Liver and Organ Defender you can rest assured that you cover your needs whether you are on a cycle, post cycle or simply looking for daily overall health support.
The liver is about the same size as a football yet it’s actually the largest vital organ in the human body. Weighing in at just over 3lbs. it’s responsible for literally hundreds of chemical actions. Bodybuilders tend to put a lot of stress on their liver; much more than the average person. With a higher than normal protein intake and all the aggressive supplements bodybuilders typically use, the liver winds up working overtime to filter everything. If you want to live the bodybuilding lifestyle maintaining a healthy liver is critical to your success.
N-Acetyl Cysteine – 1,000 mg NAC is the amino acid Cysteine with an acetyl group attached, which makes it more stable as well as more absorbable. So what does it do? NAC metabolizes into glutathione once it’s been digested by the body. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant, effectively scavenging free radicals and acting as a liver detoxifier that is very effective in promoting liver health by weakening the harmful effects of toxins and helping to remove heavy metals such as lead and mercury.(1)
Milk Thistle Powder – 600 mg Milk Thistle is one of the most effective liver support ingredients on the market and has an extended history of use in traditional medicine. The active ingredient in Milk Thistle is known as Silymarin which has several health benefits.(2,3)
Twin Tiger– L-Glutathione – 30 mg Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant that consists of the amino acids glutamine, glycine, and cysteine that binds and detoxifies toxins both in the liver and the body as a whole.(4) The combination of Milk Thistle and Glutathione is one of the things that sets Liver & Organ Defender apart from the competition because most products do not contain both.
The importance of a healthy heart goes without saying. After all, your heart is vitally responsible for pretty much everything that keeps your body alive -- ranging from oxygen transport to the proper function of your immune system. High cholesterol levels can be a side effect of the bodybuilding lifestyle while high blood pressure can be the result of rapid weight gain from the use of aggressive supplements. Taking steps to lower cholesterol as well as blood pressure in order to improve heart health leads to longevity in the sport and healthier, longer life.
Hawthorn Berry Powder1,100 mg Hawthorn Berry has a long history of use in traditional medicine as a natural heart remedy. The medicinal benefits of Hawthorn Berries are due to phytonutrients such as tannins, flavonoids, proanthocyanidins, and phenolic acids.(5,6)
Alpha-Lipoic Acid – 400 mg ALA is an organic compound that’s made by the body mainly in the mitochondria. ALA is a potent antioxidant that can reduce oxidative stress.
Garlic Extract – 300 mg While very popular in recipes of all types, garlic has a long medicinal history as well. Many people think garlic may help in vascular health.(7,8)
Dimagnesium Malate – 250 mg Magnesium is an essential mineral that’s involved in literally hundreds of functions, some of which tie in directly to bodybuilders and athletes. Beyond being involved in calcium absorption and bone health, Magnesium is also involved in nerve transmission and muscular health (which includes the heart) as well as contraction. That should be enough to make any bodybuilder want to go grab a bottle or two! This version combines Magnesium with Malic Acid, which is involved in the ATP system of energy.
CoQ10 – 25 mg Like Alpha Lipoic Acid, Coenzyme Q10 is found in the mitochondria and is involved in energy metabolism. It also helps improve cardiac function, enhance blood flow, and increase levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.(9) Coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) is a substance that’s found naturally in the body, mainly in the mitochondria where it’s a component of the ATP energy process. As much as 95% of the energy required by the body is generated by the ATP system and the heart is no exception. In fact, the heart, liver, and kidneys all have high energy needs and naturally contain high concentrations of Co-Q 10. Co-Q 10 acts as an anti-oxidant and promotes a healthy heart.
The prostate gland is male-specific and is part of the male reproductive system. It is primarily responsible for helping to make semen. The primary health risk associated with the prostate is that it can enlarge which can indicate prostate cancer.
Saw Palmetto – 1,000 mg Saw Palmetto is a plant that originates in the southeastern United States and been used since the early 1900s. Today, Saw Palmetto is commonly used to support the health and function of the prostate gland.(10)
The kidneys are one of the most important organs in the body and are primarily involved in filtering as well as the elimination of waste products from the blood. Additionally, the kidneys are involved in blood pressure regulation. The bodybuilding lifestyle tends to put extra stress on the kidneys so it makes sense to provide extra support.
Cordyceps Sinensis – 500 mg Cordyceps is a mushroom with a long use in traditional Chinese medicine as a general tonic. Mushrooms are in fact a fungus; as such Cordyceps is a fungus that lives on caterpillars in the high mountain regions of China. In recent years it has been used to help delay fatigue, fight stress and support kidney health.(11)
Everyone wants clear, healthy skin. Often viewed as evidence of good health, a good complexion sets a good visual example and helps enhance the image of bodybuilding as a healthy lifestyle. Additionally, hormones have a large part in problems with acne which is certainly an unpleasant skin condition at best. Liver and Organ Defender helps promote healthy skin and reduce the problems associated with acne.

All Day You May
Are you serious about gains? ADYM has become the industry standard for maximum recovery and muscle growth supplement drink. Perfect for intra-workout and post-workout recovery.
If you’re serious about gains, you need to begin, live, and end your day in an anabolic state. And to do that, you need to begin with ALL DAY YOU MAY. It is your best choice to have maximum muscle recovery and growth and can be enjoyed throughout the day, between meals, and following a workout.
Unlike lesser quality BCAAs available, ALL DAY YOU MAY or simply ADYM, features a number of powerful ingredients to maximize performance including HICA which improves Leucine utilization. What's the point of a clinical dose if you can't get the benefit from it!?
There are also several exclusive blends to provide you with digestive enzymes, joint support, electrolytes, liver support (NAC), and strong intracellular buffer led by beta-alanine to help you push past muscle fatigue. Did we mention that ADYM also tastes insanely good!? Only the best and only from Rich Piana's 5% Nutrition.
BCAA Blend – Leucine, Isoleucine, Valine–6 Grams
Of the three BCAAs, Leucine is the one that has the most research supporting its ability to stimulate protein synthesis. We use an innovative 10:1:1 ratio which means you’re getting aHUGE 5-gram dose of this powerful anabolic activatorin every serving of ADYM for maximum effect. The additional two BCAAs work synergistically with Leucine to promote greater results than Leucine can by itself.(1)
What are CEAAs or Conditionally EAAs? They are amino acids that cannot be made by the body under certain conditions, such as stress. We can’t think of anything more stressful than the brutally tough workouts you put yourself through several times a week so to us it makes perfect sense to include them in ADYM.
Glutamine- A big part of dealing with the stress of an intense workout is recovery and that’s where Glutamine comes in. This is an amino acid that can help keep you in an anabolic state and it’s no coincidence that it works synergistically with the BCAAs to stimulate protein synthesis, act as an anti-catabolic during training, and promote post-workout recovery.(3)
L-Carnitine L-Tartrate– We’ve included this version of Carnitine because it supports testosterone production. It doesn’t get any more anabolic than that!
NAC– One of the drawbacks of bodybuilding is the stress we put on our livers. It just comes with the territory. So we included NAC, a powerful ingredient that supports liver health and function. If you consider all the food and supplements most hardcore bodybuilders take in it should become apparent why you want to think long-term as far as keeping your liver healthy and functioning at peak levels.
Amino Acid Support Blend – L-Taurine, Raw Coconut Water Concentrate, HICA, Bromelain, Blueberry Fruit Powder – 960 mg
Taurine– This is a popular amino acid that’s often included in energy drinks and pre-workouts. We’re using it here for its powerful cell volume effects. Taurine pulls water into the muscles, hyper-hydrating them and blowing them up big time!
Coconut Water Concentrate – If you’re sweating, it means you’re working hard. It also means you’re losing electrolytes. If you don’t replace the electrolytes you’ve lost, you risk muscle cramps as well as dehydration. Coconut Water is a complete fluid replacement ingredient: it has vitamins, the key electrolyte minerals, anti-oxidants, amino acids, and enzymes for advanced hydration.
HICA (Alpha-Hydroxyisocaproic Acid) – This is a metabolite of Leucine that works synergistically with the BCAAs & EAAs to stimulate protein synthesis. Additionally, it binds ammonia in the muscles during hard training thereby blocking fatigue.(4)
Blueberry Fruit– This is amongst the most effective antioxidants on the market and helps your immune system combat workout-induced free radicals.
Bromelain– This is the digestive enzyme that’s found in pineapple and has been added to ADYM to help you digest the high-levels of protein most bodybuilders consume. You want the full benefits of the protein you take in, right?
Because the act of training is catabolic it tears down muscle tissue and drains glycogen stores. Your muscles react and a spike in lactic acid levels occurs, downing pH levels to prevent your muscles from enduring more damage. You know this as "muscle failure". We want to interrupt this process so you can push past the point of failure and keep going deep into the growth zone.
The intra-cellular buffer helps to form a barrier between your muscles and this dramatic increase in lactic acid as your pH levels decrease in an attempt to halt the muscle breakdown.
You hit it hard every time you walk in the gym and strap on your belt. You can bet your muscles aren’t the only thing taking a beating. Your joints are too – your knees, elbows, and shoulders the most. That’s why ADYM includes a joint support complex and we’ve used two of the most powerful joint ingredients available. Trust us, you’ll thank us later!
Full As F*ck
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Full As F*ck is an advanced pump pre-workout formula that uses active ingredients designed to increase nitric oxide levels and muscle cell volume, so your working muscles look Full As F*ck!
When you're attacking the weights with everything, you've got there's no feeling more satisfying than an extreme pump in the working muscles. An excellent muscle pump can transform your physique right before your eyes, forcing your muscles to look FULL AS F*CK. There's more than just a visual benefit to a great pump because the extreme increase in blood flow carries needed nutrients and oxygen to your working muscles so you can perform at your best all workout long.
Of course, many bodybuilders and athletes search the market for the most extreme pump enhancing product they can find. Full As F*ck is the product you want if you want the ultimate pump enhancer. Full As F*ck gives you fully disclosed, mega doses of nitric oxide and cell volume enhancing ingredients all designed to ramp up N.O. production and fill your muscles with water for the ultimate pump experience.
L-Citrulline- 4 Grams We're not talking about Citrulline Malate here; we're talking about pure L-Citrulline. Many of those other pump products combine Citrulline with Malic Acid. If you take a closer look, you'll see that Malic Acid tends to make up most of the total Citrulline content of this product. Citrulline is an essential part of this active ingredient lineup because it converts to Arginine in the liver and promotes longer-lasting, more intense pumps than Arginine itself.(1)Full As F*ck contains 100% pure L-Citrulline in a very generous 4-gram dose.
L-Taurine- 2 Grams Taurine seems to be in quite a few supplements lately, almost always pre-workouts and energy drinks. Taurine is a conditionally essential amino acid found predominantly in the brain, heart, and skeletal muscles of the body. Taurine reduces the nerve impulses in the brain that increase blood pressure, thereby reducing resistance to blood flow. Additionally, Taurine acts to increase muscle cell volume by helping to draw water into the muscles.(2)
AgmaMax Agmatine Sulfate- 1 Gram If you want to talk about getting a great pump, one of the first ingredients you'll take a look at is Agmatine Sulfate. This powerful ingredient is generally considered to be one of the more effective pump producers on the market. Agmatine is derived from Arginine and can promote powerful, long-lasting pumps by extending the effects of Arginine.(3)
Glycerol Monostearate - 1 Gram Glycerol Monostearate increases muscle cell volume by binding with and pulling water into the muscles for dramatically increased muscle cell volume. Also, Glycerol improves hydration and increases levels of endurance.(4)
Dan-Shen Extract- 650 mg Also known as Red Sage, this powerful herbal extract has been used in Chinese medicine for literally thousands of years.
Beet Root Powder- 500 mg Research has indicated that Beet Root increases blood flow because of the high levels of nitrates it contains. Additionally, Beet Root improves exercise performance and lowers levels of fatigue.(6)
L-Norvaline- 250 mg Arginase is an enzyme that can limit the production of nitric oxide which means your pump is not as extreme as it could be – no one wants that! The good news is you can block this enzyme with L-Norvaline thereby extending the effects of nitric oxide.(7)
Hesperidin - 100 mg This ingredient is a heart-healthy flavonoid that's associated with Vitamin C and known to enhance blood circulation.(8)
BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract - 5 mg BioPerine® Black Pepper Extract significantly improves the absorption of the other nutrients paired with it and has been utilized in this manner for over 20 years. Increased absorption translates to enhanced activation of ingredients, allowing you to achieve the most extreme muscle pump possible when usingFullAs F*ck.
AgmaMax Agmatine Sulfate This version of Agmatine Sulfate uses a unique manufacturing process to create the purest Agmatine available.

DIM 300 mg - Also known as Diindolylmethane, this ingredient is one of the components that make up Indole-3-Carbinol and originates in such vegetables as broccoli, kale, and cauliflower.
It is a regulator of estrogen metabolism in the way it helps keep estrogen levels in balance. It does this by preventing the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.(3)DIM works synergistically with Brassaiopsis to keep the estrogen under control.
Stinging Nettle 300 mg - Also known as Urtica Dioica, this plant has a long history of traditional medicinal use. Stinging Nettle contains the active ingredient 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, which is a lignan that has been suggested to increase levels of free, or usable, testosterone, which is the amount of testosterone the body allows to be used for muscle growth.(4)
Longjack 300 mg - Research shows that Longjack is mainly an adaptogen, which means it helps the body deal with stress. Longjack helps to balance the cortisol/testosterone ratio, which is very important to maintaining an anabolic environment post-cycle.(5)Longjack works synergistically with many of the other ingredients in Post Gear, such as DAA, Zinc, Magnesium and Vitamin D to get your test levels back to full speed.

Vitamin D 125 mcg- Vitamin D has been shown in recent years to have quite a few important benefits, one of which is an ability to support increased testosterone production.(7)
Zinc 30 mg,Magnesium 70 mg,Vitamin B6 10.5 mg- More commonly known as ZMA, this combination of Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 has been shown to promote increases in testosterone. The primary study that backs this up was conducted in 2000 using NCAA football players as test subjects. In this 7 week study, researchers gave ZMA supplements to test subjects who were working out twice a day. At the end of the study, researchers found a significant increase in the test subjects' levels of testosterone.

Knocked the F*ck Out
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Knocked The F*ck Out is a hardcore sleep-aid/recovery formula that includes herbs, amino acids and natural ingredients like GABA, Melatonin, Chamomile, 5-HTP and Tyrosine that will help you fall asleep and stay asleep all night.
There’s no way around it. No matter how hard you train or how well you eat, you won’t grow if you don’t recover. Recovery is one of the keys to muscle growth and one of the keys to recovery is deep, restful sleep. If you consistently fail to get a good night’s sleep, you’ll experience the destructive effects of catabolic hormones such as cortisol. What are these negative effects? Two examples are muscle loss and potential fat gain.
Knocked The F*ck Out by Rich Piana 5% Nutrition is the ultimate natural sleep aid! This product combines herbs, amino acids, and natural ingredients to create a formula that will help you relax and fall into a deep, restful sleep. We’re talking about ingredients like GABA, Melatonin, Chamomile, 5-HTP, and Tryptophan, just to name a few. So get some serious sleep and keep those gains coming!
GABA- 750 mg
This is a non-protein amino acid that acts as an inhibitory neurotransmitter. This means that it helps to promote relaxation, which is critical to being able to fall asleep every night. Often used as a sleep aid, research indicates it also stimulates GH release.(1,2)
L-Tyrosine- 750 mg
Tyrosine is a very popular cognitive enhancer that increases levels of the neurotransmitters noradrenaline and dopamine. Increased levels of these neurotransmitters improve mood and focus while relieving feelings of anxiety as well as stress.(3)
Chamomile- 650 mg
Chamomile has an extended history of use in traditional medicine in helping to stimulate sleep. The relaxing effects of Chamomile may be due to naturally high levels of an antioxidant known as apigenin that attaches to specific receptors in the brain that help promote relaxation and stimulate sleep.(4)
Inositol- 500 mg
Also known as Vitamin B8, this ingredient promotes increases levels of serotonin, a brain neurotransmitter that can help you relax and fall asleep.(5)
Lemon Balm- 500 mg
This herb has a long medicinal history as a relaxant that helps the body cope with stress.(6)
L-Tryptophan- 500 mg
This essential amino acid has a long history of use as a sleep aid due to its ability to stimulate serotonin release in the brain. As stated above, serotonin is a brain neurotransmitter that helps the body relax and fall asleep.(7)
Passion Flower- 200 mg
This is a flowering plant with an extended history in traditional medicine to promote relaxation. It’s thought to work with GABA to help calm the mind.
Hibiscus Flower- 200 mg
This herbal extract provides numerous immune and digestive benefits as well as helping the body cope with anxiety.
L-Phenylalanine- 75 mg
Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid that’s a precursor of the amino acid Tyrosine, which as we have seen above is an amino acid that combats anxiety and stress while supporting focus.
L-Theanine- 75 mg
This is an amino acid that’s thought to help combat stress and may support your ability to fall asleep. Additionally, it can support a state of non-drowsy relaxation making it popular to help tone down the effects of Caffeine.(8)
5-HTP- 30 mg
5-HTP is made in the body from Tryptophan and is converted in the body into serotonin, which in turn can be converted into the hormone melatonin. Melatonin plays an important role in regulating sleep. Its levels begin to rise in the evening to promote sleep and fall in the morning to help wake you up.(9)
Melatonin- 8 mg
Melatonin is a hormone that works with your body’s circadian rhythm, which is your body’s internal wake/sleep clock. It lets you know when it’s time to sleep and when it’s time to wake up. Levels of Melatonin begin to increase when it gets dark outside, telling your body it’s time to sleep.(10)
