UPLOAD® is an ultra-concentrated pre-workout performance enhancer created and tested by Alpha Pro Nutrition®.
From the very first dose you will experience a dramatic increase in energy, mental focus, alertness and concentration. Neurotransmitters fire up in your brain creating mental sharpness for concentrating on the task at hand. Muscular strength reaches your highest levels and your muscles quickly engorge with fresh nutrient-rich blood as overall fatigue is pushed back. A dramatic increase in recuperation takes place on a cellular level.
Alpha Pro Nutrition® spared no expense in formulating UPLOAD®'s powerful blend by utilizing only the purest and most potent ingredients. UPLOAD® is not filled with fattening maltodextrin, aspartame, saccharin or bulky fillers and untested, dubious herbs. Maximum purity brings maximum efficacy!
The Ultimate Performance Enhancer
The UPLOAD mission
After hundreds of hours of listening to what pro bodybuilders wanted to improve in their training regimen two things kept coming to the top as being crucially important: sleep & recuperation and preparing themselves mentally for a brutal workout. Obtaining adequate amounts of sleep and relaxation in order to rebuild tissue damaged from that intense workout was imperative for them in order to create new hypertrophy (muscular growth). Equally important was ensuring their system received a huge ‘boost’ both on a cellular level and psychologically right before they started their session.
Professional bodybuilders have evolved from having a cup of coffee with table sugar before stepping into the gym to leaving no stone unturned in their quest for specific compounds that will maximize their ability to perform at the highest level. No champion has ever been created by repeating low intensity workouts day in and day out. No athlete has ever broken a record by lounging around and just dreaming of greatness… they kill themselves on the gym floor every time they train!
The UPLOAD “Tunnel Vision” Matrix
We view the UPLOAD formula as one synergistic compound. Efficacious elements working together in unison to create the perfect lift for your pre-workout phase. It’s our unique “Tunnel Vision” Matrix and it includes potent doses of:
AGMATINE SULFATE AgmaMax®
We only use the brand name AgmaMax® because our in-house testing showed that the Agmatine in AgmaMax blew other less expensive brands away as far as purity and deliverability.
Agmatine has so many positive effects on muscle cells it’s actually mind-boggling! It makes the muscle full and round because it increases the storage of muscle glycogen inside the muscles. That glycogen in turn clings on to water filling out the muscle belly. One of many reasons why athletes on Agmatine experience increased pumps and larger and fuller muscles.
Agmatine enhances insulin production, which creates a better insulin response. Increased insulin response has a positive effects on body composition and musculature. Agmatine is also known for it’s anti-depressant property. Research indicates that Agmatine regulates cortisol in the body. Cortisol is a hormone that the body secretes during times of extreme anxiety, stress and depression. Agmatine can alleviate stress induced by exercise opening the pathway to recovery and rebuilding. Lab studies have also shown an enhancement of production of growth hormone (GH), pituitary hormone, and Luteinizing Hormone (LH). Luteinizing Hormone is an essential factor in increasing testosterone production. There is also new evidence from studies supporting that Agmatine can be a strong neuro-protector, lower blood pressure and have beneficial effects in heart tissue.
Agmatine effectively regulates Nitric Oxide (NO) through a variety of intricate mechanisms. It stimulates some types of Nitric Oxide Synthase (NOS) while hindering others. This is a "doubling” effect on NO production that other similar compounds do not possess and alone is well worth the added expense of using a superior ingredient such as AgmaMax® Agmatine Sulfate.
Again Alpha Pro Nutrition® doesn't skimp on quality utilizing only CarnoSyn® as it’s source for Beta-Alanine.
Beta-Alanine has quickly become an essential part for any supplement regimen in athletes and rightly so.
Myriads of scientific tests prove it’s efficacy in increasing working capacity in skeletal muscle tissue, decreasing muscle acidosis, improving endurance, delaying fatigue and improving overall muscle strength and power.
All these studies make CarnoSyn® a “no brainer” when trying to reach that ultimate state of preparedness before we tear up the weights! It increases muscle mass and improves muscle endurance along with the ability to increase Carnosine levels which in turn buffers fatigue and helps impede exhaustion.
TRI CREATINE MALATE and CREATINE PYRUVATE
Beyond just regular creatine. Way beyond! Alpha Pro Nutrition® chose to create this particular balance of creatines because the average creatine monohydrate on the market is often not well tolerated by individuals even with slight gastrointestinal issues and water retention problems. Retaining water inside your muscle is extremely beneficial to strength athletes and especially bodybuilders for obvious reasons. Ingesting an inexpensive and impure creatine product that causes an overall “creatine bloat” under the skin and especially in the abdomen is certainly not!
Studies on Creatine Pyruvate in particular show that with an improved absorption rate, compared to creatine monohydrate alone, it could eliminate the need for high-dosing or “creatine loading”. The last thing you want is a waterlogged physique due to creatine intake.
The water retention properties have been designed to stay within the muscle and not spill over to all the tissues and subcutaneously. The synergy between the amounts of Tri-Creatine Malate, Creatine Pyruvate and Agmatine Sulfate are a key factor in UPLOAD’s ability to push nutrient rich blood inside the working muscle and keep it there for the longest period of time possible.
Another key element in the UPLOAD formula that has it’s owns specific task to carry out. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine enhances mood and creates an overall sense of wellbeing. N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is a natural amino acid that is actually made from phenyl ethylamine and is converted into dopamine and norepinephrine. These are extremely powerful brain chemicals. Once broken down into phenylalanine it increases mental alertness, focus and concentration.
N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine is very fast acting and this could be why several athletes are adamant about how they feel the effect of UPLOAD quickly. The blood flow properties of the other UPLOAD elements help with the transport of this amazing amino acid which bring so many other beneficial effects. It has been linked to memory improvement, mood elevation and improved circulation in numerous tests.
This amazing amino acid essential to cardiovascular function and protein synthesis is included in high amounts in the UPLOAD formula because of a crucial role it plays during intense muscular contraction:
Taurine keeps potassium and magnesium inside the cell, while keeping excessive sodium out. Any competitive bodybuilder or physique athlete will understand the importance of this. Less water outside the muscle cell may prevent muscular definition from being opaqued by excess water retention in the one place you do NOT want it. Inside the muscle cell, hydrating it and keeping it healthy and fully functional is where you DO want it. This works perfectly in balance with UPLOAD’s Agmatine Sulfate and Beta Alanine combination to create muscle fullness without ruining your definition.
The “Grand Father” of all adaptogens, as it is called, has been used since antiquity for it’s potent beneficial effects on stamina, strength and energy production but more importantly for the serious weight trainer it aids in quicker recuperation and has the added benefit of being a nootropic. Natural nootropics increase mental drive, focus and clarity. Rhodiola is the most powerful of all natural nootropics.
Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid found in our muscles. 65% of muscle tissue is actually Glutamine! Essential to nitrogen retention and absorption this powerhouse should be in every pre-workout supplement worthy of it’s name. Dubbed “The Anabolic Amino” for good reason UPLOAD’s other key ingredients benefit from it’s presence by acting as an “amino pool” where several intrinsic reactions take place inside the muscle cell giving the overall powerhouse effect!
Endless studies can be found demonstrating the beneficial effects of L-Glutamine supplementation on competitive athletes. Some of the more important positive effects for us are: cellular hydration, minimization of damage to skeletal muscular cells while under intense contraction, increase in contractile strength and protein synthesis facilitation.
L-Glutamine, aided by UPLOAD’s other elements acts as a fuel source for working muscles and improves overall recuperation and anabolism post workout. By the time you finish your workout Glutamine is already helping you rebuild by promoting glucose uptake!
CONCENTRATED COCONUT WATER POWDER
The importance of minerals, especially electrolytes, cannot be overlooked when exercising. An effective natural blend of minerals essential during intense workouts has been added to UPLOAD’s unique formula. With no harsh chemical taste, the power of our potent mineral blend compliments our unique flavoring system unique to UPLOAD.
GUARANA SEED EXTRACT & CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS
A special balance between these two tried and true stimulants add another element of effectiveness to UPLOAD’s pre-workout boost. Recent studies on Caffeine Anhydrous validate it's ability to effectively and rapidly spark neurotransmitters in the brain creating a mental sharpness essential for focus and concentration. The unique properties of Guarana Seed Extract potentiate Caffeine Anhydrous’ effects creating a wider neurological pathway for cognitive function and augmented physical performance.
Both compounds have strong anti-oxidant effects, they increase metabolism and work in synergy as neuro-modulators and neuro-transmitters with Agmatine Sulfate.
Experience the astonishing effects of UPLOAD before your next intense workout, game or competition. You will never train without it again.
UPLOAD it now!
Getting mentally psyched for an intense workout and also maintaining intensity throughout the session is a real challenge for all athletes. The average weight trainer can’t understand this. They assume that just showing up at the gym and merely following some magazine workout routine will ensure good results. Not true! Gains need to be earned and you earn them from working hard. You need to put in the blood sweat and tears no matter what.
Alpha Pro Nutrition accepted that challenge and created the ultimate pre-workout stimulant: UPLOAD.
UPLOAD contains only the most potent and purest of ingredients in the correct dosages that will quickly and dramatically increase your explosive strength, mental focus and blood flow to working muscles. Users often experience an overall sense of euphoria and enhanced positive mood in addition to an increased hyperemia in the muscle tissue (muscle pump).
UPLOAD is unlike most pre-workout powders because it doesn't contain any fillers like maltodextrin nor is it sweetened with harmful chemicals. It's a scientifically engineered Nitric Oxide formula that has only one goal in mind... to create the ultimate workout experience each and every workout. It’s formula is a perfect balance between Agmatine, Beta-Alanine, Dendrobium, Creatine Pyruvate, Creatine Malate, N-Acetyl-Tyrosine, L-Glutamine, Rhodiola, Caffeine and a natural multi mineral complex derived from concentrated coconut water powder. Everything is added for a reason, everything in perfect balance and nothing is superfluous.
We call it our flagship product. UPLOAD is simply perfect!
