ATP LOAD'D Ingredients
ATP LOAD’D Endurance & ATP Amplification Blend
Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is the primary source of cellular energy used to power all muscle contraction. During intense all-out exercise like sprinting or heavy weight training, muscle ATP is depleted in just a few seconds. Your body relies on several systems to quickly regenerate new ATP. MAX’s ATP LOAD'D helps to maximize ATP generation by directly boosting your ATP replenishment systems with our powerful Endurance & ATP Amplification Blend:
Beta Alanine (500mg) - is an amino acid that can be used by athletes to elevate muscle Carnosine levels. Carnosine’s main role is to help stabilise muscular pH (or acidity) that build up during hard exercise. Keeping your pH within a normal range for longer means you can continue to lift that last 2 or 3 reps, sprint that bit longer, or go that bit harder. Being able to consistently push past your normal limits means faster gains in strength, power and lean muscle.
PEAK ATP® (400mg) - Oral ingestion of Adenosine Triphosphate Disodium (PEAK ATP®) provides 2 major benefits: 1. It prevents declines in ATP during hard training; 2. It increases blood flow in working muscles via a mechanism known as purinergic signalling. Several studies have demonstrated a significant reduction in muscle fatigue and improvements in power and lean body mass after a short period of supplementation with PEAK ATP®. In fact studies show that PEAK ATP® is effective after a single dose (400mg). PEAK ATP® increases the ratio of muscle power output and muscle activation during early bouts of repeated sprint exercises and prevents the decrease observed in the placebo group during later bouts. This demonstrates the unique ability of PEAK ATP® to activate muscles, causing them to contract with higher force of contractions, sparking superior gains in strength and power.
Betaine (75mg) - Also known by its chemical name of Trimethylglycine, Betaine has been shown in several studies to increase both muscular strength and size while also reducing body fat. It is widely used in pre-workout formulas to boost cardiovascular output plus strength and power.
AstraGin (40mg) - This patented combination of Panax Ginseng and Astragalus has been clinically proven to increase absorption of many nutrients including amino acids, vitamins and herbal extracts. AstraGin maximises the absorption of MAX’s ATP LOAD'D to ensure maximum potency and results.
ATP LOAD'D Creatine Complex
Creatine is a compound that is naturally found in muscle cells. It can be made by your body and you can also get it through your diet, mostly by eating meat. Creatine is very well researched and the verdict is….. Creatine significantly increases power, strength, muscular endurance, and lean muscle gains. It is a must for all serious trainers.
Creatine levels in your muscles can be increased beyond natural levels by taking a Creatine supplement, like ATP LOAD'D. Regular ingestion of Creatine can increase intramuscular levels by up to 20%. Studies confirm these elevated levels increase muscular energy and power resulting in more intense workouts and big muscle gains in just a few short weeks.
Most of this original research was performed of Creatine Monohydrate. In recent years several newer forms have hit the market. MAX’s ATP LOAD'D combines 4 unique forms of Creatine - each with its own particular advantages. It contains:
Creatine Monohydrate (1000mg) - The original and most widely used form of Creatine, it is very effective. However, because of solubility, it is relatively slow to absorb.
Creatine HCl (675mg) - This form of Creatine is bound to Hydrochloric Acid which changes the pH to make this form of Creatine more soluble and fast acting.
Creatinol-O-Phosphate (400mg) - Several studies show COP can prolong anaerobic exercise by both helping to maintain ATP levels and buffering lactic acid accumulation
Di-Creatine Malate (200mg) - Creatine bound to Malic Acid making it highly soluble and fast acting, and along with Creatine HCl, it is a great Creatine to use prior to training.
ATP LOAD'D is designed to be taken every day - at differing times depending on whether you are training that day. 1 daily serving (4 capsules) of ATP LOAD'D should be consumed each day. On training days we recommend taking 2 capsules upon rising and 2 capsules about 30 - 60 minutes before training with water. On non-training days take 2 capsules upon rising and 2 capsules in the late afternoon about 1 hour before dinner.
Some answers to common questions about ATP LOAD'D:
Does ATP LOAD'D contain any proprietary blends?
All MAX's products are manufactured to the highest quality standards and give you full disclosure of all ingredients used so you know exactly how much of each active ingredient you are getting. We use the highest quality ingredients from reputable suppliers and in dosages that have been shown by studies to provide a clinical benefit for maximum results.
Can I use ATP LOAD'D as a pre-workout?
ATP LOAD'D is an ideal pre-workout formula because it boosts the nutrients your muscle cells use directly to generate energy. Take 2 capsules around 30 - 60 minutes before your workout for maximum results.
Can I stack ATP LOAD'D with other supplements?
ATP LOAD'D is a cutting edge energy boosting formula but can be stacked with other MAX's Lab Series products for a synergistic effect. We recommend stacking ATP LOAD'D with MAX's VASO-D PUMP'D to maximise blood flow to working muscles. If you are training to strip body fat, you can also stack with MAX's T-DEX RIPP'D.
Should I cycle on and off ATP LOAD'D?
While it's not strictly necessary to cycle on and off ATP LOAD'D we would recommend periodically giving your system a break every few months for 1 - 2 weeks to allow it to return to "normal" functioning. Your ATP LOAD'D use should coincide with your natural training cycles. When you are training hard and peaking for a competition or maximising your efforts, this is a good time to consistently use ATP LOAD'D. When you have scheduled in a period of lower training load then this is a naturally good time to take a break from usage.
Can women trainers use ATP LOAD'D?
Yes - ATP LOAD'D can be safely used by women and offers all the same benefits.
