Beast mode in a bottle: Upgrade strength, boost intensity and maximize muscle gains
Some pre-workouts use low-grade creatine linked to indigestion; jittery high-dose caffeine that reduces creatine absorption; and lots of pointless synthetic flavors and additives.
Performance Lab® SPORT Pre is a smarter, cleaner pre-workout.
Powered by sport nutrition innovations Setria® Performance Blend, Creapure® pH10, CarnoSyn® and NutriGenesis®, SPORT Pre enhances strength, intensity and endurance without caffeine or bloating.
Take SPORT Pre 30 minutes before exercise for peak performance in your session and robust muscle growth afterwards.
Designed for Performance
Healthy for Daily Use
Setria® Performance Blend (Setria® Glutathione + L-Citrulline), 2200 mg
Healthy circulation enhances athletic development in many ways, including:
- Promoting muscle strength and power;
- Oxygenating muscles for energy and endurance;
- Enhancing mental intensity, focus and inner drive;
- Nourishing muscles with proteins and anabolic factors;
- Accelerating muscle repair and recovery.
For these reasons and more, many pre-workout supplements support nitric oxide (NO), a signaling compound that relaxes blood vessels to boost circulation during exercise.
Concern: L-Arginine and L-Citrulline used as NO-boosters in basic pre-workout supplements may be limited by poor bioavailability and questionable effectiveness.
Performance Lab® SPORT Pre performs better with Setria® Performance Blend:
Setria® Performance Blend has been clinically shown to boost and sustain Nitric Oxide (NO) levels in the bloodstream 2x as long as L-Arginine or L-Citrulline.
SPORT Pre features Setria® Performance Blend to provide a sustained nitric oxide (NO) circulation boost that enhances muscle performance and growth.
Beyond working as a NO-boosting team in Setria® Performance Blend, Setria® Glutathione + L-Citrulline each supply their own distinct sports nutrition benefits:
Setria® Glutathione – Master antioxidant enzyme that also boosts vitamins C and E to help:
- Protect muscle against cell-damaging oxidative stress during high-intensity training;
- Strengthen immune function against challenges linked to exercise and gym pathogens.
Glutathione spikes within muscle during exercise. Researchers suggest glutathione may improve performance, delay fatigue and support overall muscle health.
L-Citrulline (Kyowa Quality®) – Raises L-Arginine to promote muscle growth and function via:
- Improving BCAA utilization, muscle energy and anabolism while fighting catabolism;
- Supporting greater muscle power output while maintaining VO2 max (muscle efficiency);
- Helping to clear failure-inducing ammonia from muscle tissue.
In addition to enhancing muscle strength and endurance, L-Citrulline has been shown in research to reduce soreness and fatigue after exercise.
SPORT Pre Setria® Performance Blend is made by Kyowa Hakko Bio Co. Ltd., a world leader in health ingredients manufacturing and nutraceutical development.
Creapure® pH10 Creatine, 1250 mg
Creatine is an organic compound that is highly concentrated in muscle, where it is stored as fuel for the production of ATP energy that powers muscle contractions.
- High-energy exercises – including strength training and intense short-burst aerobic and interval training – deplete muscle reserves of creatine and ATP energy.
SPORT Pre helps by restoring creatine to muscle, where it supports training intensity, muscle growth and recovery by:
- Recharging the ATP energy that powers muscle fibers during high-intensity exercise;
- Stimulating insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) to promote lean muscle development;
- Buffering lactic acid within muscle, helping to extend time of muscle exertion to failure
Research has linked creatine supplementation with increases in both maximum and total muscle work production.
SPORT Pre Creapure® pH10 is 99.5% pure creatine monohydrate that is pH-balanced to boost bioavailability and minimize typical creatine bloating and gastric distress.
CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine, 800 mg
Beta alanine raises carnosine – a dipeptide molecule highly concentrated in muscle tissue, especially fast-twitch muscle fibers. Research links higher carnosine concentrations in fast-twitch muscle fibers with increased muscle power during high-intensity exercise.
Consistently loading and maintaining muscle carnosine is one of the most important sports nutrition practices because it helps with both performance and recovery:
CarnoSyn® muscle performance support
- Increases the working capacity of muscle;
- Delays the onset of muscle fatigue and failure;
- Boosts overall muscle strength and endurance.
CarnoSyn® muscle recovery support
- Antioxidant activity to neutralize exercise-induced, muscle-damaging free radicals;
- Inhibits protein-damaging advanced glycation end-products (AGEs);
- Acts as a muscle-alkalizing pH regulator, buffering impact of muscle-damaging acids.
SPORT Pre CarnoSyn® is beta-alanine made with nutritional technology that has been clinically shown to increase the working capacity of muscle, delay fatigue, and boost muscle strength and endurance.
SPORT Pre + SPORT Post + SPORT Maintain is your convenient solution for getting the consistent daily beta alanine and creatine intake shown to produce the best muscle benefits in human research.
Himalayan Pink Salt, 350 mg
Salt helps maintain hydration by restoring electrolytes that are depleted by sweating. Salt also optimizes absorption of sports nutrition amino acids found in SPORT Pre.
SPORT Pre Himalayan Pink Salt is a natural, unprocessed form that includes natural trace minerals and electrolytes that are especially beneficial to athletes: Potassium, magnesium and calcium.
Maritime Pine Bark Extract(95% proanthocyanidins), 100 mg
SPORT Pre Nitric Oxide Stack: Setria® Performance Blend + Maritime Pine Bark Extract
- Setria® Performance Blend efficiently raises nitric oxide;
- Maritime Pine Bark Extract regulates the enzyme nitric oxide synthase (NOS);
- NOS catalyzes L-Arginine to produce Nitric Oxide.
Together SPORT Pre Setria® Performance Blend + Maritime Pine Bark Extract supply raw materials and cell signaling activity that work together for greater Nitric Oxide synthesis.
NutriGenesis® Iron, 2.5 mg
Iron is crucial for oxygenating athletes’ blood and muscle tissues. But intense physical exertion reduces iron absorption while acelerating iron loss through sweat.
- Low iron diminishes red blood cells’ ability to transport oxygen, and is associated with reduced exercise capacity, fatigue and sub-par performance.
Healthy iron levels have been shown in clinical research to improve athletic performance via enhanced strength, endurance and maximal muscle power output.
Performance Lab® NutriGenesis® Iron is complexed with a matrix of absorption-enhancing cofactors – a key advantage for athletes who may have a harder time absorbing the mineral.
The harder you train, the more you need iron.
SPORT Pre supplies 2.5 mg of Iron as NutriGenesis®, contributing to the optimal levels required for athletic performance.
To meet the higher iron demands of intense physical exertion, stack SPORT Pre with NutriGenesis® Multi (Men 2 mg Iron, Women 8 mg Iron) and SPORT Maintain (2.5 mg Iron)
SPORT Pre can be taken by anyone taking part in any type of training program, from strength training and HIIT to long-distance running and endurance training. Its most pronounced performance-enhancing benefits have been associated with high-intensity, short-duration exercises. Regardless of activity, SPORT Pre helps to prime muscles for superior performance that encourages the best possible results from your training program.
On training days, take 6 capsules 45-60 minutes pre-workout with 16-32 oz. of water. Take SPORT Pre consistently.
For best results, take SPORT Pre with SPORT Post and SPORT Maintain. Designed to stack together, SPORT Pre + SPORT Post + SPORT Maintain form the world’s most convenient solution for getting the consistent daily beta alanine + creatine intake shown to produce the best muscle benefits in human clinical research.
SPORT Pre is designed differently from other pre-workouts because raises creatine levels in two ways: It both supplies creatine and promotes natural creatine synthesis.
Our Creapure® pH10 is a highly bioavailable, so more usable creatine reaches the bloodstream after absorption. By using a superior creatine form and promoting the body’s natural creatine production, SPORT Pre more efficiently raises creatine stores with a lower dosage.
Our dual-pathway design also enables SPORT Pre to be taken consistently over the long term, eliminating the need for a loading phase and/or cycling as with standard creatine supplements. SPORT Pre’s conservative and natural creatine approach is also safer: Many popular creatine supplements use dosages that can raise creatine urinary concentrations by 90X – a significant spike which may affect kidney health.
There is a problem with some pre-workouts using stimulatory ingredients that may be dangerous (synephrine is one example). Other pre-workouts may use high doses of beta alanine or other potentially risky ingredients.
Another example: Mega-dosing Mucuna Pruriens that is already potency-enhanced, in some cases standardized to up to 98% L-Dopa. With continued use, this excessive L-Dopa intake may create health concerns related to the endogenous dopaminergic system.
Some other pre-workouts may even supply banned substances. In the worst cases, some substances are banned not because they give athletes an unfair advantage – but because they are detrimental to human health.
Don’t be fooled: Bigger dosages are not always better, and exotic ingredients are not always safe.
Performance Lab® SPORT formulas are different, designed for maximum effectiveness within safety boundaries. To achieve this, we choose safe, science-backed ingredients, formulate in synergistic combinations, use highly bioavailable nutrient forms, and deliver them in easy-to-absorb NutriCaps®.
We take these steps to pack more active nutrition into smaller dosages – enabling us to produce safe formulas that are effective for performance, safe for sustained daily use, and supportive of long-range health.
Yes. We recommend that you try SPORT Pre with Performance Lab® Stim, which supplies Caffeine + L-Theanine and neurotransmitter support nutrients for a healthier, more balanced workout-stimulating experience.
Since caffeine may interfere with creatine absorption, it is important to stagger intake: Take SPORT Pre 45 minutes before exercise, wait 30 minutes, then take Stim.
With 50 mg caffeine per capsule, Stim enables strategic caffeine dosing. Only take as much as Stim as you need to enhance exercise performance. Minimum effective dosing of Stim caffeine promotes maximum absorption of the creatine in SPORT Pre and SPORT Post.
Like all Performance Lab® supplements, SPORT Pre is designed to be safe for long-term daily use, without the need for cycling. SPORT Pre achieves this by using pure, potent ingredients that are dosed appropriately and in line with clinical research. SPORT Pre’s clean formula design – free of GMOs, gluten, soy, colorants, preservatives and other additives – is also well-tolerated by the body; safe and beneficial for long-term use.
Yes. SPORT Pre is a safe, natural and 100% legal way to support peak physical performance during training. SPORT Pre is also tested for banned substances, and appropriate for use by amateur, collegiate and professional athletes.
SPORT Pre enhances training performance after the first use, with effects that are more noticeable with continued use. SPORT Pre is designed to produce superior training results over the long-term.
NutriGenesis® is a Performance Lab® nutrition technology innovation: Vitamins, minerals and amino acids grown in live cultures at our state-of-the-art lab.
A true biological nutrient form, NutriGenesis® closely mirrors the molecular structure of food nutrients. NutriGenesis® nutrients offer significant advantages over standard nutrient forms.
Featured in several Performance Lab® formulas, NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and amino acids are bioengineered to be safe, active and highly effective for overall health and performance.
Vitamins, minerals and amino acids are the most important nutrients you need to build a strong foundation for health and performance.
Performance Lab® developed NutriGenesis® to have our own in-house vitamins, minerals and amino acids to use in our own nutritional supplements.
In producing NutriGenesis®, Performance Lab® can best maintain our industry-leading quality standards for cleanliness, purity, effectiveness and eco-friendliness, across all our ultramodern formulas.
Not all vitamins, minerals and amino acids are the same. There are many nutrient forms, produced with a variety of processes. Some of the most popular nutrient forms available in supplements today include:
Whole Food Concentrates
Whole food vitamin and mineral supplements are sourced from fruits, vegetables, herbs and mushrooms. They include natural cofactors that make food nutrients so easy for the body to absorb and utilize. However, they do require extensive processing and may be made with GMOs, mass agriculture and dirty eco-destructive practices.
Isolated Chemical (USP) Nutrients
Isolated Chemical (USP) is the cheapest vitamin and mineral form found in the most basic multivitamin supplements. This synthetic form chemically alters vitamins and minerals, isolating them from their whole-food cofactors. As a result, Isolated Chemical (USP) nutrients are typically harder to absorb and less effective than whole food nutrients.
In this process, a mineral nutrient (such as iron, calcium, zinc) is bound with a chelator: An organic molecule (often an amino acid) that is large enough to enrobe the mineral. By surrounding the mineral, the chelator protects it against degradation. Chelated nutrients are highly stable and may improve nutrient uptake and utilization.
NutriGenesis® is different from traditional nutrient forms: Bioengineered to be better.
NutriGenesis® are cultured nutrients that replicate the creation of vitamins, minerals and aminos in nature.
NutriGenesis® is based on the work of Nobel Prize-winning physiologist Albert Szent Gyorgy, who theorized that nutrients presented in their naturally grown forms supply cofactors that make them more bioavailable, biologically active and effective than nutrients that are isolated.
In the NutriGenesis® process, single-cell organisms (Lactobacillus probiotics and brewer’s yeast) are seeded with micronutrients in a hydroponic growth medium.
The live single-cell organisms “eat” the micronutrients, divide and thrive. As the cultures grow, they produce fresh new NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and aminos within a matrix of natural cofactors. This familiar structure is more easily absorbed and utilized by the body.More on the NutriGenesis® Process
NutriGenesis® advantages over other forms:
NutriGenesis® is essentially food nutrition. Mirroring food nutrients molecule-by-molecule, our vitamins, minerals and aminos are presented in pure elemental form. Maximum nutrition: Nothing more, nothing less.
Enhanced effectiveness. Because NutriGenesis® nutrients are in food-matrix form, they are recognized by the body as nature-identical -- maximizing nutrient uptake, bioavailability and beneficial activity.
Patented and researched. The patented process behind NutriGenesis® has been shown in research to enhance nutrient absorption and retention (when compared to chemical isolates).
Cleaner and safer. NutriGenesis® is produced in a sterile, tightly controlled lab setting. NutriGenesis® is minimally processed, requiring no pesticides, herbicides or other synthetics associated with some other whole-food nutrients.
Better for the planet: The NutriGenesis® process is clean and efficient, with little carbon footprint or environmental impact – especially when compared to factory farming for phytonutrients and strip mining for minerals.
It all begins with NutriGenesis® Multi for Men and Multi for Women: Performance Lab®’s multivitamin starting point for human performance optimization.
NutriGenesis® vitamins, minerals and amino acids are also found in Performance Lab® formulas Stim, Flex, BCAA, Pre, Post and Maintain.
Beyond Performance Lab®, NutriGenesis® B-Vitamins are found in Mind Lab Pro®: the Universal Nootropic™.
