shot of adrenaline, a surge of raw power, a current of electricity
running from head to toe. Animal Rage allows you to stalk the weights,
to dominate the gym, to make the competition run and hide. Taken just
before you wreak havoc in the weight room, Animal Rage is more than a
mere preworkout supplement, it is a bodybuilder’s secret weapon, an
ergogenic wrecking ball ready to be swung.
first time I used Rage I got a warm rush through my veins. My eyes
opened wide like a warrior ready for battle. It was like someone kicked
me in the ass. I felt rage that lasted my entire workout." - Erik “The House” Fankhouser, West Virginia
Rage. As a hardcore trainer, you need to take advantage of each and
every workout. You don’t have time for shitty, half-assed workouts. If
you’re half-assing it in the gym, you’re half-assing your training and
that ain’t getting you closer to your physique goals. And it doesn’t
matter how great your diet is because to put first things first,
business needs to get done in the gym. If you want to progress in this
game, every rep counts. Every set counts. Every workout counts. The
most hard-training, hardcore, elite bodybuilders demand optimum
performance from every training session. To get the most out of the
workout, one must tap into their inner rage.
switch, as we call it, taking common emotions like anger and
frustration and turning them into potent productivity in the weight
pit. Digging deep into the dark reservoir within and finding the fury
necessary to punish the unyielding weights necessary to change a mere
man into something more. This transformation, and the approach to the
tools necessary to bring it about, are not only a byproduct of the
hallmarks of success—consistency, tenacity and hard work, but also of
the ability for a good man, an upstanding member of society, to tap
into his own shadow self, and to find his inner rage.
This rage is a dangerous thing when left unchecked, but focused and
managed, it can manifest itself in glorious ways. Pulling deep from
within, this rage is capable of pushing a man to extremes, testing his
limits. Bringing about a seeming “out of body experience” where
daunting weights and punishing training sessions are simply no match.
In the crush or be crushed, fuck or walk realities of handling the
heaviest of poundages, going through the motions in the gym simply will
never suffice. This is where the dedicated few leave nothing to chance.
When pouring their anger into their new becoming, when channeling their
fury into eclipsing their personal bests, there is zero margin for
error. Their form is precise, their gear is on point, and their
supplementation is meticulous. They carry with them, the secret, the
edge they can call upon when it is time to dig deep.
This ace up the most hardcore sleeve is the new Animal Rage. Tested
twice in the trenches and tweaked to the exact specifications of the
most loyal and gritty Animal diehards in the rigorous Agent O Alpha
Testing trials, Animal Rage hits the ground sprinting as a proven
entity from day one. Energy. Focus. Intensity. Insanity. These four
simple words are the hallmarks of this remarkable product. The energy
to surge through your workouts. Laser-like focus on the goal at hand.
The intensity to manhandle the big weights. The insanity to push the
envelope and smash your previous limits. A priceless tool for
bodybuilders, powerlifters and strongmen alike, Animal Rage has already
been referred to as a “PR (personal record) in a can.”
Not only is the feeling of being “on” Animal Rage like none other and
the performance enhancement capabilities mind blowing, but the simple
act of taking this compound is an experience in and of itself.
Different than any other Animal product to come before (since the days
of Nitro and Nitro G), there will be two forms of Animal Rage, tailored
specifically to the individual gym warrior’s wants and needs. Known for
their comprehensive packs, it goes without saying that Animal Rage will
be available in capsule form, individually pre-dosed as always. But it
doesn’t end there. This ultra-potent concentrated focus, energy and
performance formula will also be available in a powder. Mixed with only
4 ounces of water and administered as a “shot”, the Animal Rage powder
is to be banged back with authority. Be forewarned, it’s got some kick.
This shit ain’t for your average joe gymgoer.
The potent Animal Rage formula is comprised of four potent and powerful
complexes, in the spirit of all Animal products before it, delivering a
comprehensive and precision measured dose of energy, focus and
performance nutrients. With each and every robust encapsulated pack you
toss back or ass kicking shot of Rage you throw down, you’re ensured a
rush of ergogenic voltage straight to the head featuring the following…
Quick energy is the feeling of an adrenaline surge traveling throughout
your body, waking up your senses, preparing you for your intense
workout ahead. Animal Rage’s Quick Energy Complex gets in your system
fast and furious. You feel it and you’re ready to train in minutes. The
core of Animal Rage’s Quick Energy Complex is pure caffeine anhydrous,
a powerful central nervous system (CNS) stimulant. The chemical
structure of caffeine is very similar to that of adenine (a component
of ATP, DNA, and cyclic AMP). Essentially it’s very close to being an
energy metabolite and because of the structural similarities, caffeine
can slip right into adenosine receptors, keeping cyclic AMP active
rather than being broken down. Caffeine allows the cyclic AMP supply
remains higher for longer. In short, caffeine reaches deep into the
muscle cell to provide lasting power and delays the onset of muscle
fatigue. That ain’t it for the Quick Energy Complex. It’s also packed
with tried and true green tea extract and coffee bean extract. These
two natural energizers are also potent antioxidants so not only do they
help gear you up for the workout but they also help reduce free oxygen
radicals in the body, allowing your cells to work more efficiently and
in a less stressful environment. Rounding out the Quick Energy Complex
are vinpocetine and evodiamine. Vinpocetine has been shown to support
healthy blood circulation and oxygen flow to the brain, two important
characteristics for hard training athletes. Evodiamine is a bioactive
alkaloid extract shown to stimulate the vanilloid receptors in the
body, working to reduce the uptake of fat and increase the natural rate
of burning fat, result in a positive energy output.
Not only do you need quick energy to wake you up for the training
session, you need to be able to sustain your energy levels throughout
the workout. What good is it if you have energy to start the workout
but have nothing left in the tank for the duration of the workout?
Plain and simple. It sucks. What good is it to have energy at the start
but not have anything left for the entire hard training session. You
need it on your warm-ups and you need it on your top sets. This is
where Animal Rage differs from other energy/pre-workout products. Where
other energy products end, Animal Rage is just beginning. Here’s what
Animal Rage has that no other pre-workout in its category has—A unique
Sustained Energy Complex. This key complex houses 4 potent herbal
adaptogenic compounds; rhodiola rosea extract, schizandra berry,
cordyceps sinensis and panax ginseng. Together these herbs have been
shown to help increase physical training capacity, improve endurance,
minimize the catabolic stress response, decrease mental fatigue as well
as support healthy libido and boost immune system function. These are
critical factors for naturally enhancing ones performance levels in the
gym. Rhodiola rosea root extract has a wide range of adaptogenic
functions. In particular, it works to help combat mental and physical
fatigue. In studies, it has been shown to allow the body to become more
resistant to the effects of stress, and improves anxiety and moodiness.
Rhodiola is also known to help increase energy. Schizandra berry
functions to enhance the body's natural resistance and adaptation to
stressful influences, support mental endurance and promote overall
metabolic efficiency. Cordyceps sinensis has long been used by
endurance athletes for its ability to promote sustained energy during
intense competition. It’s been shown to increase liver ATP and also
supports healthy antioxidant activity, immune function, and glucose
metabolism. Last but not least, panax ginseng rounds out the sustained
energy blend. It’s a long-time used herbal adaptogen that works to
improve athletic performance and stamina, as well as reaction times.
These key herbal adaptogens help ensure your energy is maximized and
sustained throughout your workout.
So that covers quick and sustained energy. Next up we’re going to talk
about endurance and performance. These are two important facets of a
top tier training program. You need energy to keep you moving during
the training session but it can’t end there. You have to be able to
endure and maintain your strength throughout the rigors of a hard
training session. And it’s not about training for hours on end; it’s
about performing at a high level during your entire session. That’s
what hardcore bodybuilders need to do each and every gym session. You
can’t have a shoddy performance in the gym and then expect great
results. This is why Animal Rage contains a potent Endurance &
Performance Complex. Rage’s Endurance and Performance Complex is dosed
with potent ergogenic aids such as beta alanine, citrulline malate,
l-taurine and glucuronolactone. Let’s take a closer look at what these
compounds help with. According to scientific studies, beta alanine has
been shown to help hard training athletes in a number of important
areas such as increasing strength, power output, endurance, exercise
capacity and muscle mass as well as delaying the onset of neuromuscular
fatigue. Citrulline malate has been shown to increase plasma arginine
levels and nitric oxide (NO). The physiological effect of boosting NO
as citrulline malate, includes better regulation of blood flow and
amino acid delivery to muscle tissue, improved oxygen delivery,
enhanced glucose uptake and muscle strength. Citrulline malate also
plays a role in reduced lactic acid and ammonia buildup, optimized ATP
production, battles muscle fatigue and promotes endurance. Animal Rage
also contains l-taurine, which is the second most abundant amino acid
in muscle. L-taurine has been show to work by expanding muscle cells by
allowing them to hold more water, thus increasing cell volume. For
bodybuilders and strength athletes, this is very important as expanded
muscle cells can boost hydration which results in a higher rate of
protein synthesis. The final ingredient in the complex is
glucuronolactone, which is naturally occurring and is an important
structural component of nearly all connective tissues. Improvements in
mental performance and reaction time as well as aerobic and anaerobic
performance are some of the benefits noted.
The last complex up is the Focus and Intensity Complex. When you’ve got
a job to do, ya gotta hone in on what needs to be done and nothing else
should matter at that particular time. Lose your focus and your
training gets fucked. Keeping focused during your workout ensures you
get done what needs to be done without anything getting in your way.
But on top of that, it isn’t enough just to be focused, ya gotta train
at a high-intensity too. When you’re focused and training intensely,
this is where ya tap into even greater results. The top athletes in the
world know how to consistently tap into this mindset, a mindset that
allows them to separate themselves from their competition. Animal Rage
has its own specialized Focus & Intensity Complex consisting of
well-known nooptropics such as L-tyrosine, choline bitartrate, n-acetyl
tyrosine and beta-phenylethylamine. L-tyrosine and n-acetyl l-tyrosine
play important roles in the production of the neurotransmitters
dopamine and norepinephrine which are important for healthy cognitive
and brain function. An awesome side-benefit from tyrosine is that it
has also been shown to decrease the stress hormone cortisol, thus
protecting the body against the adverse consequences of the stresses of
heavy weight training. Choline bitartrate, similar to tyrosine, is an
effective neurotransmitter precursor. In addition, choline also works
to produce another neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, which is important
for memory and learning and is a neurotransmitter used throughout the
body. Amongst other things, it works to turn your brain on and
determines your brain speed. Ya gotta be producing enough acetylcholine
to train hard and intense. Finally, b-Phenylalamine (b-PEA) rounds out
the Focus & Intensity Complex. b-PEA works to help maintain and
promote mental alertness,focus, mood and concentration. It is also
believed to function as a neuromodulator or neurotransmitter and can
promote energy and elevate mood.
With Animal Rage, you’re always just a shot or pack away from flipping
the switch and letting loose on the weights… Energy. Focus. Intensity.
Insanity… That’s what you get with each potent dose of Animal Rage. The
desire, the dedication, the hunger, the balls… You bring that to the
table. And make sure you bring your “A game” too. Animal Rage will take
care of the rest.
