Branched chain amino acids might be the single most important supplement a bodybuilder or athlete can take. We know that amino acids are what make up our muscle cells, but what many don’t know is that BCAA are essential, meaning in order to get them we have to eat them or take them as nutritional supplements. In short, it’s a major component in what makes somebody have slabs of muscle on their body or look relatively average. BCAA’s literally constitute more than 1/3 of the amino acid composition of skeletal muscle. That’s 33% of untapped growth if you’re not getting enough BCAA’s right now. Think about all of the untapped size and muscle you’re missing out on!
When you’re undergoing high intensity training, BCAA’s are oxidized for use as fuel and to maintain oxidative metabolite concentration. Supplementing with BCAA’s reduces exercise-induced muscle breakdown and also stimulates muscle protein synthesis. Daily BCAA supplementation may also reduce muscle damage, promote strength recovery, and even enhance blood oxygen carrying capacity. Of the three BCAA’s, Leucine plays a special role in skeletal muscle metabolism, in particular by exerting an anti-catabolic and anabolic effect on protein metabolism.
BTG offers each of the BCAA’s specifically designed with a 2:1:1 ratio favoring Leucine, but as a bonus we included HICA, also known as 100% pharmaceutical grade leucic acid – a natural metabolite of the BCAA, Leucine to ensure maximum absorption of the branch chained amino acids. Plus we loaded it up with vitamin B-6 and B-12 to support your natural energy levels as many users prefer to take BCAA’s before doing morning cardio or between meals while dieting to support anti-catabolism while on a reduced calorie diet.
Repair, Recover, Rebuild – stop wasting your time training without it.

EWP is your chance to execute. You see the way we work. You see the way we live. You see the way we train. EWP is here to help give you that drive and edge to grind through the toughest workouts.
Most of us work a 9-5 and have a million moving parts to our lives. Our minds are often cluttered with nonsense holding us back from focusing and executing our goals. We wanted to create a pre-workout that helped all of this. EWP includes ingredients to improve focus, enhance mood, increase energy, and maximize output. We did not want to overdo this product or cram too much into it, ultimately leave you with an under-dosed smorgasbord of ingredients. We’ve dosed EWP with scientifically backed ingredients at their proper and effective dosages to achieve the feeling we hoped to accomplish. This product can stand alone as a pre-workout powerhouse or be combined with our STW PUMP FORMULA* for maximal results.
Proper planning and persistence lead to accomplishing great things. Attack each workout with intent and reason. Enter With Purpose…
Beta-O (Beta Alanine Orotate): Beta alanine serves as a lactic acid buffer while orotic acid boosts carnosine levels, a potent combo that is great for boosting overall carnosine levels allowing for greater stamina while training. Time has proven Beta Alanine to be a great addition to any pre-workout, but by adding Orotic Acid (forming Beta-O) we were able to extend the duration of its effects and create something uniquely effective.
COP (Creatinol-O-Phosphate): COP assists the muscles, including the brain and the heart, to work even after the blood supply has been compromised when the body is in a high lactic acid state due to exercise. By assisting the body to function in a lower pH environment, COP has been suggested to keep the muscle sarcolemma (membrane) from breaking down while simultaneously allowing nerve impulses to continue contractions for longer—ultimately helping you to push harder for longer during your training session.
Theobromine: Theobromine is the most potent and concentrated cacao bean extract possible. Theobromine is a bitter alkaloid of the cacao plant and is the "feel good" ingredient in chocolate. Theobromine is derived from "Theobroma", the name of the genus of the cacao tree, which is itself made up of the Greek words "theo" (god) and "brosi" (food), meaning "food of the gods".
Synephrine HCL: Synephrine is included to support energy and metabolism.
Cymbidium Goeringii): Cymbidium Goeringii is an herb that is extensively used in traditional medicine in China Nepal and Northern India. It is primarily regarded as a general tonic and “adaptogen” increasing energy levels helping the body adapt to stress and enhancing work capacity.
Caffeine Anhydrous: Caffeine anhydrous is a central nervous stimulant causing rapid increases in energy and alertness.
Taurine: Benefits of Taurine include increases in physical endurance, mental concentration, alertness, and overall sense of well-being.
Betaine Anhydrous: Betaine has been shown in studies to improve muscle strength and power. It has also been shown to increase markers for protein synthesis.
Beta Vulgaris L: Beta Vulgaris' (beet extract) main benefits are increasing blood flow allowing for better pumps and delivery of nutrients. Through this, Beta Vulgaris' will improve endurance and energy.
