Performix SST Suspension Super Thermogenic Pre workout Powder

If you have never used pre workout powder then I’m really exited to be able to tell you all about it!! As you get further into your fitness journey you will find yourself learning: the names of different exercises, buying more and more fitness clothing, lifting gloves, acquiring equipment, researching nutrition for pre workout snacks along with post workout snacks, supplements, and pre workouts!! First, I will explain a little bit about pre workout in general. Then I will dive into the ingredients of this particular pre workout and in addition explain how the ingredients benefit you.

What does pre workout do and how much do I take?

Pre workout helps to wake your body up and give you an extra punch to your workout due to boosting body energy, metabolize fat, and enhances mental focus. Therefore users will lift heavier and train harder with pre workout. The serving size is 3 scoops(7g) but I highly recommend starting off with only half a scoop first because it is very powerful due to the amount of caffeine and other ingredients. Also, I start out with half a scoop for about three weeks, 1 scoop after that and continue to raise it by half a scoop as I feel I need it. It comes in a NET WT. 7.4 OZ (210g) container that includes 30 servings.  1 scoop is 67mg, 2 scoops is 113mg, and 3 scoops is 200mg.

So, What’s in it and what do those vitamins do?


Calculations in the following supplements are based on serving size of 3 scoops(7g)

Calories: 15

 Calories are a unit of energy. Specifically the energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 gram of water through 1 °C (now usually defined as 4.1868 joules). Therefore it’s basically a way of describing how much energy your body could get from consuming it.
Calories from Fat: 5
Calories in food are created from a combination of from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats.  A gram of carbohydrate and protein both have the same amount of 4 calories.  A gram of fat, contains 9 calories.
Total Carbohydrate: 3g 
Total carbohydrates are created from multiple nutrients, including dietary fiber, sugars and starches. Hence this makes carbohydrate critical to energy intake.
Niacin(as Nicotinic Acid): 10mg 
Niacin is a form of B vitamins. B vitamins produce energy for the body by burning food/carbohydrates into fuel/glucose.

Vitamin B-12 (as Methylcobalamin): 1,000mcg
Vitamin B12 helps the body make red blood cells. So if you have a Vitamin B12 deficiency you might feel weak, feel less energized, and think slower.

Calcium: 98mg
 Calcium helps build strong bones and protect your teeth.

Sodium: 115mg
When sodium levels and osmolality (concentration of chemical particles in the fluid part of blood) fall, the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland release antidiuretic hormones when the osmoreceptors in the hypothalamus are stimulated.  Antidiuretic hormones helps absorption of water in the kidneys so that water is conserved while sodium and other electrolytes are excreted in the urine. On the other spectrum if sodium levels and osmolality rise, the hypothalamus thirst center neurons relates a message to you to drink water in order to restore osmolality.

Potassium: 310 mg
Potassium is a mineral and electrolyte that helps regulate blood pressure, normal water balance, muscle contractions, nerve impulses, digestion, heart rhythm, pH balance (acidity and alkalinity) which as a result prevents fatigue,
muscle spasms, weakness, cramping, irregular heartbeat,
constipation, nausea, and also vomiting.
