5% Nutrition KILL IT is now in RTD (ready-to-drink) form, yet with far more caffeine than the OG pre — 400mg! There's also 10g glycerol for pumps!
Open a bottle of Kill It Ready-to-Drink Pre-Workout, and you’ll kick things off with an intense 400mg of caffeine paired with a sleeve-stretching 10g dose of glycerine. You might know this ingredient by its other name, glycerol, and it’s great for achieving great water-based pumps. Next, you’ll find a hardcore dose of taurine at 2 grams, paired with 4g of pure citrulline, and topped off with 750 mg of Nitrosigine an ingredient that lends you a friendly pump now and for hours into your next workout.
The original pre-workout from 5% Nutrition was the Kill It Pre-Workout formula and has remained a bedrock of pre-workouts featuring a balance of energy, focus, and muscle pumps. This all-new Ready-to-Drink formula will up the game, giving you an on-demand pre-workout with even more pumps than the original, plus an incredible taste that allows you to pound the 12 Fl oz serving at room temperature or frosty from the fridge.
If you’re heading to the gym to work out, you need a pre-workout to drive you through your training session. What could be easier or faster than opening a Kill It Ready-to-Drink Pre-Workout bottle? Just imagine an ice-cold, delicious pre-workout powerhouse! By the time you’ve finished it and arrived at the gym, you’ll be ready to tear into those weights! Plus, with an ingredient lineup that would put any competitor to shame, you’ll be able to train longer and recover quicker.
Go ahead, and check out that ingredient breakdown. Notice that we’re using a completely transparent label. There’s nowhere to hide all 14 ingredients packed into this great formula, and you won’t find any proprietary blends here, either.
One bottle of Kill It Ready-to-Drink Pre-Workout is equal to one serving (12 fl oz) and supplies the following:
Glycerine – 10,000 mg
This is also known as glycerol. This very popular ingredient is a sugar alcohol that functions as an osmolyte. It holds water and carries it into the muscle cells. Promoting water-based pumps works together with taurine, betaine, and the 2 nitric oxide boosters to create amazing pumps. It also promotes extreme hydration. This is a very serious dose, so you can imagine the pumps you’ll get from this ingredient. Especially combined with the other pump enhancers in this advanced formula!(1)
L-Citrulline – 4,000 mg
No doubt anyone reading this knows what citrulline does. This is a solid dose; even better, it’s pure citrulline. Some of those other brands dilute citrulline's nitric oxide-based pump benefits by using citrulline malate. Not us; you know we’re all about the pump!(2,3)
Beta-Alanine – 3,200 mg
This compound is well-known for its endurance characteristics and works indirectly to increase carnosine levels in the body. It’s carnosine that buffers lactic acid in the muscles, which in turn promotes greater muscle endurance.(4)
Taurine – 2,000 mg
You often see this in energy drinks and pre-workouts for their cognitive benefits. Taurine is also an osmolyte. As we have seen, this means it pulls water into your muscles for intense water-based pumps. Therefore, it works with citrulline, Nitrosigine, glycerine, and, as we’ll see, betaine for crazy pumps.(5)
Betaine – 1,000 mg
You may have heard that betaine is similar to creatine. One of the main things betaine does is function as an osmolyte, like taurine and glycerine. Can you tell we were serious about pumps when we created Kill It Ready-to-Drink Pre-Workout? Plus, betaine supports strength and power.(6)
Nitrosigine (Inositol-Stabilized Arginine Silicate) – 750 mg
This branded ingredient will work synergistically with citrulline to promote monster nitric oxide pumps and insane vascularity. You also experience increased nutrient delivery and fast removal of waste products from your muscles. Plus, Nitrosigine is fast-acting, and the pump effect will last up to 6 hours! Yep, you read that right. These 2 compounds, as noted, work synergistically with the osmolytes glycerine, taurine, and betaine.(7,8)
Caffeine (Caffeine Anhydrous, Caffeine Citrate, Dicaffeine Malate) – 400 mg
Well, we all know the core function of caffeine, now, don’t we? With the pumps well covered by this formula, we had to give this formula a solid and balanced array of caffeine sources, including a slower-release version to help reduce the jitters and smooth out any caffeine crash.
Tripotassium Citrate Monohydrate – 196 mg
This is a source of potassium, the electrolyte mineral. It also acts as an emulsifying agent.(9)
L-Theanine – 100 mg
Here’s an ingredient that helps balance the harsh effects caffeine can cause. You’ll see this in most pre-workouts for that reason. It does this by acting as a relaxant, yet it does not cause drowsiness.(10)
Sodium – 100 mg
One of the primary functions of sodium is its role as an electrolyte. Besides hydration, sodium pulls water into the muscle cells, which promotes cell volume.
Potassium – 190 mg
Like sodium, potassium is an electrolyte mineral. The last thing you want when you work out is to be dehydrated. Good hydration is key to optimal performance.
Coconut Water Powder – 100 mg
A rich source of electrolyte minerals. Coconut Water Powder promotes and maintains hydration.
Sodium Citrate Dihydrate – 86 mg
This is a source of the electrolyte mineral sodium. It’s also commonly used to help improve the flavor by regulating tartness.(11)
Huperzia serrata Club Moss Extract – 10 mg
This ingredient helps increase focus, improve mood, and enhance memory.
