Pre workout products have gone from the early days when 200mg of caffeine was seen as "a large amount" to the crazy days of 2017 when images of zombies and the devil now frequent the packaging of the latest "hardcore" offering with up to a gram of caffeine (if you take the "hardcore serving") that is. This is crazy, I'm sure you all agree. Pre workouts were created to help you turn your hard workouts into something that was more productive than it would have been had you not used a pre-workout, right?Having agreed that, PhD set out to find out exactly what it was that you required from your workouts and lo and behold it wasn't "Getting pumped up for a night on the town", the need was actually far more important, it was about:
Once we had registered this, we realised that we couldn't do all this with one product because it would not only be impossible, it would be counter productive and conflicting. WE asked ourselves, "Why would a power lifter who wants to perform 10 sets of 3, need to burn fat?", or "Why would a cross fitter want to get a muscle pump?", the contradictions of a "one pre workout fits all2 approach are many, so we decided we would bite the bullet and create three!
Pre Workout BURN, Pre Workout PERFORM and Pre Workout PUMP.
PhD Pre-Wkt PUMP contains the latest breakthrough ingredient technology for bodybuilders seeking serious muscle pumps leading to muscle growth activation. Containing over 2g of Arginine and Betaine per serving Pre-Wkt PUMP also contains the super-ingredient L-Norvaline. It also contains NO CAFFEINE.
So why no caffeine?- The answer is complicated in its science but simple in it's reasoning. Caffeine acts as both a vasoconstrictor and a mild diuretic, these are both reactions in the body that are exactly the opposite of what you want to happen if you are actively seeking a muscle pump. Firstly, vasoconstriction is the narrowing of blood vessels. Arginine (which is a key ingredient for the muscle pump) is a vasodilator (expansion of blood vessels), one allows more blood into the muscle, one allows less. If you have both in the same product, you are countering the effects of both. If you want to increase muscle pumps- then don't use a pre workout with caffeine, but always use Arginine for it's ability to increase Nitric Oxide production. This comes back to the reason why we have created 3 pre workout products. Remember we agreed that the reason for using a pre workout wasn't to get ready for a night out?, the reason is to enhance the benefits of whatever type of training you are doing. More blood into the muscle means more nutrients and the greater ability to build muscle. So if you want a muscle pump and are training to get bigger, don't use a pre workout with caffeine in. If you want to perform better and lose body fat, well that's a different story and that's why we have created pre workout BURN and PERFORM.

In addition to the premium protein blend, Diet Whey includes waxy barley flour, an innovative carbohydrate source derived from the finest barley crop.
Diet Whey also contains CLA, L-Carnitine, flaxseed and green tea extract, plus the naturally occurring and essential branched chain amino acids; L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine & L-Valine.
When mixed with water, Diet Whey is low in fat, sugar and salt and contains 91 calories per 25g serving, making it the ideal supplement to support a healthy lifestyle or calorie controlled nutritional plan.
As well as whey protein concentrate, Diet Whey also contains micellar casein and soya protein isolate; three premium protein sources with varying digestion rates.
High in essential branched chain amino acids, Diet Whey provides 3.3g of BCAA’s per 25g serving.
PhD Nutrition have ensured that Diet Whey is the ideal supplement to support a healthy lifestyle or calorie controlled nutritional plan.
1 serving: Add 1 scoop of powder (25g) to 175ml of ice cold water and shake or blend for 10 seconds.
1 super serving: Add 2 scoops of powder (50g) to 350ml of ice cold water and shake or blend for 10 seconds.
Micellar Casein+ is a premium quality, slow release casein protein powder derived from the finest micellar casein and fortified with ultra-slow acting, Micelle XL™ - the latest in casein protein technology. PhD Nutrition have combined the two best sources of casein to deliver the most modern, unique late night protein powder available.
Micellar casein protein powderis widely recognised as the most superior form of casein protein and has long been used by serious athletes and body builders as the single most effective source of pre-bedtime protein. Micellar Casein is principally used as a pre-sleep protein drink due to its ability to release amino acids slowly into the muscles, thereby delivering its benefits over a sustained period of time. Containing high levels of branched chain amino acids and L-Glutamine, Micellar Casein+ provides over 4g of BCAA’s per 30g single serving and over 4g of the amino acid, L-Glutamine, a massively important amino acid for all athletes interested in building and repairing muscle. .
Delivering up to 75g of protein per 100g and 22g per single serving, Micellar Casein+ is low in sugar and a great source of muscle building protein, to be used before bed and to compliment other premium PhD protein products throughout the day, such as Pharma Whey HT+ (an “any time” protein that is great to use between meals) and Tricellar Whey (premium post workout fast/slow protein to use immediately after serious exercise). .
Add 1 scoop (30g) to 300ml of ice cold water and shake or blend for 10 seconds.
For best results, use 1 serving of Micellar Casein+ daily, making sure to take this serving 30-60 minutes before bed.
