PRE Workout Formula Overview
The PRE-Workout formula addresses the energy your body needs both before and during your workout or physical activity. During this phase, the primary goal of the body is to deliver the proper energy to the muscle in order to create muscular contractions.
The PRE-Workout formula addresses one of the most important nutrients to take during this crucial phase, carbohydrates. Carbohydrates balance blood glucose levels and replenish glycogen stores, which leads to an increase in endurance as well as prevention of muscular fatigue. However, the PRE addresses much more since carbohydrates alone are simply not enough. Numerous studies have proven that protein, amino acids, and vitamins combined with carbohydrates before and during a workout not only increases muscular endurance but also reduces muscular damage while at the same time prepping the muscles for faster recovery.
The PRE-Workout formula is designed to be mixed with either water or juice and half taken 10-20 minutes before the workout, then continue sipping the second half for the first 20 minutes into your workout.
The PRE-Workout formula provides safe and natural supplementation to hydrate, enhance energy levels and prevent burning coveted muscle during workouts, games and intense competitions. The PRE-Workout formula keeps the athlete hydrated to maintain lower body temperatures thus postponing fatigue and resulting in maximum workout periods with greater intensity. The PRE-Workout formula is loaded with a 5 gram mega-dose of BCAAs (Branched-chain amino acids). Research has also shown that taking essential amino acids before a workout dramatically increases muscle protein synthesis and anabolism; increasing energy levels and the intensity of your workouts.
NOURISH / ENERGIZE / STAMINA
♦ Mega Dose of BCAA’S
♦Fat Burning Formula
♦ Strength/Stamina Complex
♦ Electrolyte Booster
♦ Free Radical Scavenger
♦ Long Lasting Energy/Focus
♦Lactic Acid Buffer
PRE Key Ingredients
Essential Amino Acids - (5 Grams) This mega amount of Amino acids at the pre-workout stage creates an anabolic/anti-catabolic environment during the workout and sets the stage for a faster and better recovery by the halting of cellular breakdown as well as slowing the breakdown of protein which makes it easier to put on new muscle. SSP offers a sizable dose of Leucine, the most important amino acid when it comes to building lean muscle. It helps with the regulation of blood-sugar levels, the growth and repair of muscle tissue, growth hormone production, wound healing as well as energy regulation. Leucine is the most anabolic of all BCAA’s proven to prevent muscle protein breakdown and stimulating muscle protein synthesis.
Creatine HCl – Creatine has been studied for over 30 years and has been proven by far to be the most effective supplement to increase endurance and strength while being safe. SSP uses Creatine HCl which minimizes any water retention so the athlete does not have any bloating effect.
Vitamins C, E and ALA - (Alpha Lipoic Acid – Helps make Vitamin C & E work better. It is a powerful antioxidant that fights free radicals). These antioxidants minimize any free radicals (Unstable molecules that steal electrons from other molecules) created during vigorous workouts while also elevating Nitric Oxide (NO2) (NO2 opens blood vessels and helps increase blood flow) levels, further enhancing the athlete’s pump. The ALA replenishes the Vitamins C and E as they get depleted thus the cycle repeats during long, strenuous workouts.
Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium – Electrolytes maintain hydration levels, reduce muscle cramping and enhance the athlete’s ability to withstand long grueling workouts at both the endurance aerobic level and the short burst anaerobic level.
Dextrose - This taste-enhancing simple sugar gives the athlete immediate energy to kick start the workout. A strategic five (5) gram limit prevents the athlete from experiencing a sugar induced “crash” during or after their workouts.
Citrulline Malate - The effects begin during grueling aerobic workouts, giving the athlete a “Second Wind.” Anaerobic athletes alike will benefit from Citrulline Malate during their intense workouts as it buffers lactic acid and removes ammonia from your system.
Beta-Alanine - A Nitrous Oxide (NO2) enhancer. Beta- Alanine increases Carnosine levels, endurance, synthesizes protein and acts as a buffering agent against lactic acid buildup allowing the athlete to push harder and longer without the muscles burning out. (Carnosine is a dipeptide of the amino acids Beta-Alanine and Histidine. It is highly concentrated in both muscle & brain tissues)
Caffeine - Caffeine is a proven ergogenic (external) agent providing greater focus and energy during the intense workout. Once full serving of the PRE contains the equivalent of about 2.5 cups of coffee.
Taurine - Achieve greater endurance. SSP uses 3x the amount than a typical energy drink. Taurine lowers the Three-Methyl-Hystidine levels, acts as a Cortisol blocker and an anti-catabolic agent, preventing the burning of muscle. The Glycerol “pump” already underway is further enhanced by Taurine.
Mucuna Pruriens - Also known as “Indian Ginseng,” Mucuna Pruriens is a rare root that our research has discovered to be an excellent anabolic agent. On a different level it provides long lasting focus and energy.
POST Workout Formula Overview
The POST-Workout formula is designed for the forty-five minute window after exercise and is perhaps the most crucial time for your body in regards to supplementation. In fact, research has shown that not utilizing nutrition after a workout leaves your body in worse shape than if you had never even exercised. Using proper nutrition repairs damaged muscles and replenishes muscle glycogen stores. Within this window muscle cells are in an anabolic state, but this state diminishes rapidly, and if proper nutrition is not taken muscles will become insulin resistant, thus slowing muscle recovery and growth potential.
In order to increase recovery and repair muscles effectively the body must synthesize protein, which is best triggered by glycogen replenishment. Many athletes make the mistake of taking protein-heavy supplements immediately after a workout, but this is simply ineffective. Without an insulin spike and glycogen replenishment, protein synthesis cannot occur, they are intertwined. In fact, the most important macronutrients to take immediately after a workout are carbohydrates. Numerous studies have shown that in order to receive the greatest recovery an athlete should take a 3:1 carbohydrate/protein ratio sports drink immediately after a workout. The Post-Workout formula is designed to be mixed with either water or a berry based juice and is to be taken immediately following your workout.
SSP Nutrition’s POST-Workout formula nutrients immediately scavenge free radicals, repair muscle cells and enhance growth potential during this critical and short lived “anabolic window”. POST is based on a proprietary blend of natural ingredients that replenish muscle cells with the most scientifically advanced blend of effective nutrients.
Protect / Replenish / Repair
♦ Hydrolyzed-Whey Protein for Instant Absorption
♦ 3:1 Glycogen Replenishment and Muscle Repair Complex
♦ Enhanced Fat Loss and Recuperation
♦ Anabolic Muscle Complex
♦ Leucine/Glutamine Mega-dose
♦ Spectra Recovery Blend
The workout shouldn’t stop when the training ends. Experts conclusively agree that post-workout nutrients are the most important part of the day’s nutrition. Those missing this crucial step risk a muscle composition of a worse condition than prior to the workout. SSP’s POST-Workout formula helps you “Seize the Moment!”
POST Key Ingredients
Leucine - The pre-eminent amino acid which restarts the anabolic process, increases insulin levels to trigger greater protein absorption and shuts down catabolism.
Dextrose-Maltodextrin - Dextrose (fast burning sugar) and Maltodextrin (a slower burning carbohydrate) blend to further spike the insulin levels and immediately open the pathways for optimal protein absorption over a two hour period.
Whey Protein Hydrolisate - Provides instant protein absorption directly into the muscle cells exactly when they need it most. Each POST contains 6 grams of Whey Protein Hydrolisate which is the equivalent of approximately 30 grams of typical Whey Protein due to its efficiency in absorption.
Whey Protein Isolate - Provides a slower protein absorption into the muscles over the next two hours after the workout.
Creatine HCl– Creatine has been studied for over 30 years and has been proven by far to be the most effective supplement to increase endurance and strength while being safe. SSP uses Creatine HCl which minimizes any water retention so the athlete does not have any bloating effect.
Carnitine - A proprietary blend featuring Acetyl L-Carnitine (this super antioxidant helps supply the brain with energy by improving energetics in the cell’s energy generator) acting as both a fat burner and a triggering agent to keep the testosterone receptors sensitized and further enhancing the anabolic state.
Magnesium Glycl-Glutamine - Chelated (A form that is better absorbed by the body) form strategically delivers the Glutamine past the stomach and into the intestines for actual absorption. Studies conclusively show that any other form of Glutamine will not survive the harsh stomach environment and are simply a waste of energy and money.
Chromium Chelavite - Chelated form of Chromium acts as another transport agent, sensitizing the insulin receptors which mimics an insulin spike without a large dose of sugar based carbohydrates thus allowing for even greater protein absorption and muscle growth.

New SSP Formula is Fantastic
Posted by William Fluck on 7th May 2017
The new flavor is great! I also enjoy that it's a little easier to mix.
Problems with the PRE
Posted by author is unknown on 27th Dec 2016
I use these products because I complete in the USAPL. I have nothing bad to say about the post, but the Pre product arrived clumped. It is not a powder texture, seems as though they can't keep the moisture out of the canister.
RESPONSE FROM SSP: The SSP PRE canister contains 70% pure glycerol to keep the athlete hydrated during high intensity workouts. Because of its effectiveness, it begins working in the canister, which results in minor clumping. However, it will break up and dissolve easily in water when preparing your PRE drink formula.
great for meets
Posted by Donna Marts on 26th May 2016
I went back to using this product after the taste was improved and am really pleased with it especially for in competition. I competed at Nationals this past weekend and drank a serving of the PRE during squat warm-up and a second serving during bench warm-up and during benches and felt great through to the last deadlift. IN the past I have felt like a balloon with no air left in it come the last pull but not the case this time. While training I take the POST after my workouts but for competition I like the PRE and it served me well, great product and I am back to being a full time customer.
Powerful Boost for Workouts
Posted by Steve Hultquist on 22nd Feb 2016
As a 55 year-old active skier, I work hard to stay in shape after losing 30 pounds in 2013. Keeping weight off with 200 days in hotel rooms on business travel is a challenge, and the SSP products make working out, whether in a hotel fitness room or in my own gym ...Intense, Powerful, and Effective.

Excellent Recovery & Workout Energy
Posted by Steve Binkowski on 22nd Sep 2015
Being 70 yrs. old and a APF/AAPF powerlifter (WPC world champion 1998 in Graz, Austria) for over 30 years, I get an excellent energy and recovery response.
I took 13 yrs off from competition because of some health problems and are hoping to hit a Bench meet this spring. I am taking my time not to overtrain or risk injury.
Posted by Jacob Bigelow on 31st May 2015
Very good product, a bit expensive but it works for me. The only complaint I have is that it is clumpy.
Finally something that works
Posted by Luis on 26th May 2015
Over and over of trying "pre-workouts" and finally I found that gives me enough strength and endurance to push through my workouts. Currently training for Bench press nationals in PA and also planing on going to the U.S. Virgin Islands to compete in the 9th NAPF North American Regional Bench Press Championships. I highly recommend this product to serious lifters. Great product!
Best I've tried!
Posted by Jim Curley on 18th May 2015
This concept makes sense - nutrition and not mind numbing stimulants. I've been using the Pre and Post for over 30 days and I'm getting the best workouts I've had in years. Next day I feel ready to hit it again. Mind you, I still like a stiff cup of coffee before a workout, but I've never experienced anything like this - in fact, I ordered the canisters for my daughter and her boyfriend who are enthusiastic crossfitters. They need recovery too, even though young. Thanks for manufacturing such an effective, high quality product!
Best Pre and Post product out there!
Posted by Amanda on 16th Apr 2015
I wanted a simple, easy to use system for my workouts, I have found it in SSP. The canisters are easy to use and take with me, plus the taste is amazing. Best of all, I feel good taking these products knowing that they are safe and good for my body. I have noticed a huge improvement in my energy and recovery during and after workouts.
