Whatever your goal..
BI has the "ultimate" pre-workout stack for you.
Male? Female? Over 40? Need more energy, strength, stamina, or endurance during your workouts? Want to lose weight, get cut, or gain lean muscle? Stacking can help you achieve all of the above, faster.

One of the things physique and performance athletes and fitness enthusiasts of all kinds appreciate most about Beverly products is that they can be stacked in any of a number of ways to produce synergistic effects. Below is a selection of pre-workout stacks designed to maximize the results of a broad range of individuals with different workout styles and goals. Choose the stack that best suits your needs. Don’t be afraid to change it up from time to time by trying a different stack from the list!

What’s the secret?

The secret to designing the "ultimate" supplement stack is that you must consider the following three factors:

(1) CNS:

  • Your central nervous system (CNS) functions like "command central". During your workouts, for instance, the CNS sends signals to your muscles telling them when to "jump" (i.e. contract) and how "high" (i.e. how much force to generate). If your CNS is fatigued or has difficulty focusing (think of early morning workouts), you will be, too

  • Nutraceuticals like caffeine (Fast-Up™, 7-Keto Musclean) and n-acetyl-carnitine (Quadracarn™) can stimulate your CNS. This makes you feel more energetic, alert, focused and even powerful. In turn, you will be more motivated to go to the gym and have a great workout.

  • CNS-stimulating nutraceuticals can even reduce your perception of effort. This means that working out at a higher intensity level feels less difficult.

(2) Muscle:

  • Particularly when you’re performing resistance exercise (i.e. lifting weights), you want to use nutraceuticals that:
   i. enhance your ability to achieve a muscle pump.
   ii. promote muscle strength, power, stamina or endurance.
   iii. protect your muscles from catabolism (protein breakdown).
  •  The pump occurs when working muscle tissue becomes filled, or "pumped" with blood. The pump is considered the hallmark of an effective muscle-building workout.
  • Nutraceuticals like propionyl-l-carnitine (Quadracarn), arginine and citrulline (Up-Lift™, Muscle Synergy™) promote pumps by supporting vasodilation (relaxation of blood vessels). This means that blood can flow into your muscles more easily.
  • Beta-alanine (Creatine Select™, Up-Lift), creatine (Creatine Select, Muscle Synergy) and betaine (Up-Lift) help your muscles delay fatigue while performing high-intensity contractions. This means you can perform more reps with a given weight, or take shorter rest periods between sets.
  • Carnitine (Energy Reserve, Quadracarn) can also help delay fatigue, especially during intense or long cardio workouts requiring stamina or endurance.
  • Glutamine and BCAAs (Glutamine Select™) support muscle protein synthesis (anabolism) and help combat excess muscle protein breakdown (catabolism).

(3) Fat-Burning:

  • We all know that to lose fat (and weight), your metabolism must burn fat faster than it stores it on your body.

  • We usually think of cardio workouts as the best place to burn off fat. Cardio is certainly a great way to stimulate your metabolism to burn fat faster. This is partly because it typically involves using large muscle groups (especially the legs) for a sustained period of time.

  • Nutraceuticals like 7-Keto© (7-Keto Musclean) and caffeine (found in 7-Keto Musclean, Fast-Up), both of which stimulate thermogenesis, can help you take fat-burning to the next level during (and after) your cardio workouts. By increasing thermogenesis, more calories are burned off in the form of heat, instead of being stored as fat.

  • Carnitine (Energy Reserve, Quadracarn) also supports fat-burning. It is required to carry fat inside the mitochondria of muscle cells and other types of cells where it is burned to provide energy.

  • With the above in mind, we designed the following selection of "ultimate" supplement stacks to help you maximize your results!
