BSC BODY SCIENCE K-OS PRE WORKOUT
What should you look for in a Pre-Workout supplement? K-OS Pre-workout is a Formulated Supplementary Sports Food designed to intensify your workout. The synergistic ingredients in K-OS not only deliver increased intensity and focus to your workouts, but also improve muscle growth and strength and aid recovery.
If you want to build muscle or shed fat, you need to maximise your time in the gym. KOS Pre-workout is one of the best speciality formulated powders produced by the Body Science Team as each advanced scoop contains 3000mg Creatine, 1500mg Beta Alanine, 250mg Arginine and 175mg Caffeine.
Creatine is a substance found naturally within the human body. Although found in numerous organs, the majority of creatine is stored within skeletal muscle cells. Put simply, creatine is used to restore the levels of Adenosine Tri-Phosphate (ATP) in cells. ATP is a vital energy source for muscles and creatine is needed to maintain adequate ATP levels. The remarkable thing about muscle creatine stores is that they can be increased simply by supplementing the diet with additional creatine (1). Therefore, oral consumption of creatine increases and saturates the muscle content of creatine, which regenerates ATP so your muscles can keep on working.
A number of studies have suggested that creatine may enhance muscular strength within a very short period of time. One study compared the maximum amount of weight able to be lifted for one repetition in the bench press exercise prior to and after seven days creatine supplementation (2). This strength based test commonly referred to as a “1RM” is a measure of maximal muscular strength. As shown in the graph below (figure 1), after only seven days creatine supplementation muscle strength had increased significantly.

Numerous studies have reported that, when combined with a resistance training program, creatine can enhance the gains in fat free mass and lean body mass to a degree that is significantly greater than would be associated with training alone (3-13).
This is likely attributed to a combination of factors including:
Cell volumisation – Creatine causes the water inside the muscle cell (intracellular fluid) to increase, which causes the cell to swell (7, 14). This is believed to be an anabolic signal, which may promote protein synthesis (15). Cell volumisation can be indirectly detected by an increase in muscle cross sectional area within a matter a days after beginning creatine supplementation (16). This may be subjectively felt as a “tightness” or “pump” in the muscle by many users.
Enhanced Training Capacity – Creatine enhances the resynthesis of the cells energy source, Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This can allow a higher training intensity to be maintained, which may ultimately lead to a greater stimulus for muscle growth (17).
In various human studies, beta-alanine supplementation has been shown to increase exercise performance, including increased time to exhaustion (18), peak power output during a sprint (19), training amounts for the bench press exercise (20), the total number of repetitions performed, as well as an increase in the change in mean power (21), as well as fatigue threshold and physical working capacity at neuromuscular fatigue threshold (18, 22, 23). The positive effect Beta Alanine has on exercise performance may be due to the effect beta-alanine has on muscle carnosine levels in all fiber types (24, 25, 26, 27), helping to buffer the muscle from pH changes due to lactic acid production, or improved lean body mass (28).
The well- know stimulant caffeine, has been included in K-OS Pre-workout to help fight fatigue, enhance focus and improve your sense of performance. Athletes in a wide variety of sports regularly use caffeine as an ergogenic aid.
There are three main hypotheses of how caffeine helps enhance physical performance and stamina.
(1) Caffeine causes the body to burn more fat and fewer carbohydrates
(2) Caffeine enhances the athlete’s mental focus by stimulating the central nervous system
(3) Caffeine may have the ability to strengthen muscle contractions.
A separate author offers a fourth hypothesis, suggesting that the thermogenic properties of caffeine offer benefit to strength-power athletes by altering body composition (29). Clinical research shows that taking caffeine can increase muscle strength and physical endurance (30, 31, 32, 33).
Backed by research, K-OS is the perfect supplement to take before your next workout. It can help you push through training plateau’s, boost the work capacity of muscles, increase strength and enhance recovery and contains less than 1g of carbohydrate per serve. Also K-OS contains nothing of the WADA prohibited substances list , is certified under the Informed Sport supplement guarantee and made to the highest quality in GMP / HACCP certified manufacturing facilities.
KOS Pre-Workout has been designed to aid energy, power, endurance, focus and strength. With minimal calories and all of these benefits it compliments any training and strengthening regime and has a recommended dose of 1 x 6g serve per day.
