Description
Fast Twitch™
Power Workout Drink Mix
Endo-Thermogenic Breakthrough
From the makers of Muscle Milk® & Cytomax®
  • Fuel Fast Twitch (type II) Fibers - EXPLOSIVE STRENGTH PERFORMANCE
  • Amplify Nitric Oxide - TOTAL BODY PUMPS
  • Lower Cortisol - PROTECT LEAN MUSCLE
  • Endo-Thermogenic Effect - ENHANCE METABOLIC RATE


EXPLOSIVE STRENGTH,
TOTAL BODY PUMPS, MENTAL FOCUS



Awesome muscular explosiveness and size, formerly
reserved for the genetically gifted, is the goal of FAST
TWITCH
. FAST TWITCH is the first formula
specifically designed to fuel fast twitch (type II) muscle
fibers for greater muscular power and gains.


FAST TWITCH helps increase post workout
intensity, while enhancing muscular repair. The harder the
workout, the more FAST TWITCH can help. With
FAST TWITCH, you may run out of gym time before
you run out of muscle energy.


STRENGTH, POWER & VELOCITY

Fueling type II fibers increases explosive power and
speed. This translates into more sets, reps and weight lifted.


ENDO-THERMOGENIC

FAST TWITCH enables muscles to produce more
power, resulting in greater heat output. This heat production
is endo-thermogenic. Increased body heat, plus enhanced
oxygen consumption after harder workouts, boosts
metabolism. Raising the metabolic rate can enhance
calorie burning.


END WORKOUTS READY TO RECOVER

Cortisol, the body's primary stress hormone, naturally
rises after workouts. Elevated cortisol can be catabolic to
muscle tissue. FAST TWITCH contains
phosphatidylserine (SerinAid®), which may help blunt
exercise induced contisol rise after workouts.
NEW CREATINE POWER-
EVEN FOR "NON_RESPONDERS"


Creatine GCC, first used in Muscle Milk®, helps support
the body's own creatine production. New Kre-Alkalyn® further
advances creatine technology. Together, they need no loading,
and are pH balanced to deliver massive creatine results.


GET PUMPED, FEEL GREAT, LIFT BIG

FAST TWITCH promotes internal
S-adenosylmethionine (SAMe) production, highly regarded for
enhancing mood and joint support. SAMEe, with out nutrients,
help "get your mood right" for monster workouts. Nitric oxide
amplifiers pump you up, and speed nutrients to hungry muscles.

MUSCLE FACT

Fast and slow twitch are generalizations for
more specific muscle fiber types. Physiologist
classify human muscle fibers as Type 1 (slow
twitch; slow oxidative, SO), IIa (fast twitch; fast
oxidative glycolytic, FOG), IIab (intermediate
fiber), and IIb or x (fast twitch; fast glycolytic,
FG). In general, slow twitch fibers are relatively
fatigue resistant, but do not contract as rapidly
or as strongly. Fast-twitch fibers contract more
rapidly and forcefully, but fatigue more quickly.
Although all fiber types respond to intense
training, fast twitch fibers tend to have a greater
ability for hypertrophy (growth).

Supplement Facts

Mix one to three scoops/servings of
FAST TWITCH in 16 oz of water. Drink
3/4 of bottle 30-45 minutes before workout.
Drink remaining 1/4 bottle during workout.
Best results are obtained when taken on empty
stomach. Take on training days. Drink 64 fl. oz
of water daily. After workouts, take Muscle
Milk
within 60 minutes for fast recovery.


FAST TWITCH fuels increased
explosive strength, while promoting muscular
repair post workout. Our pH balanced creatine
mix remains stable, so you can drink FAST TWITCH
during workouts to keep muscle
fibers firing harder, longer.

Health Notes

Fast Facts on "Fat Burners"

Fast Facts on "Fat Burners"
Fast Facts on "Fat Burners": Main Image
Fat burners encourage the body to use stored fat for energy, decrease the rate at which excess calories are turned into body fat, or enhance metabolism

While there isn't a standard definition for the phrase "fat burner," diet experts generally agree these are substances that

  • encourage the body to use stored fat for energy,
  • decrease the rate at which excess calories are turned into body fat, or
  • enhance metabolism-the rate at which the body burns calories.

Products or foods that suppress appetite or promote a feeling of fullness, such as fiber, are not true fat burners, though they may be labeled that way, and still may be useful aids to weight loss.

Tried and true

Several dietary supplements and natural substances have been studied for their fat-burning effects, including:

Green tea. Research has shown green tea supplements can promote modest weight loss-a few pounds in short-term studies of up to 12 weeks, when compared to placebo-and may help prevent weight regain. Catechins, one component of green tea, appear to have a variety of fat-burning effects, including increasing metabolism and the use of fat for fuel, and decreasing the rate at which body fat is created and stored. Green tea has a good track record of safe use.

Capsaicin. Capsaicin is the spicy-hot component of red chili peppers, and one randomized trial found that people lost twice the weight taking capsaicin compared with a placebo, over a 12-week period. The total effect was small, however: the capsaicin group lost about 2 pounds compared to a 1-pound loss in the placebo group. Capsaicin appears to increase metabolism, and supplements of up to 6 grams of capsaicin per day are considered safe and are well tolerated by most people.

L-carnitine. Our bodies make and use L-carnitine to transport fat within cells, so that the fat can be burned for energy. Studies support that L-carnitine supplements improve fat burning in the body, but clinical trials have yet to show a weight-loss benefit in obese people. L-carnitine may be useful for improving athletic performance, however, and up to 3 grams per day is considered safe.

New kids on the block

Raspberry ketones. When given to mice on a high-fat, high-calorie diet, raspberry ketones protected against excess weight gain and fat accumulation in the liver. Mice aren't people, however, so keep an eye out for future research, which should clarify what kind of effects raspberry ketones may have for weight-loss in people.

Bitter orange (Citrus aurantium). This product became more popular after the 2004 FDA ban on ephedra supplements. Bitter orange has effects similar to ephedra, including increasing metabolism, blood pressure, and heart rate, which can translate into weight loss. While bitter orange appears to be safe for short-term use-weeks, not months-in healthy adults, it also may have similar adverse effects as ephedra, so use it with caution if you have underlying health issues, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes.

Thermogenics. Thermogenics refers to a broad category of substances that cause the body to produce heat through increased metabolism. Examples include fucoxanthin, a supplement derived from brown seaweed, and 7-KETO DHEA, a manufactured hormone that is related to, though not the same as, the naturally occurring human hormone DHEA. Even caffeine and green tea are considered to have some thermogenic action in the body. As with many fat-burning supplements, thermogenics can be safe for short-term use in healthy adults. However, if you have underlying health issues, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, or diabetes, you may need to steer clear of thermogenic weight-loss products.

Other ways to fight the fat

Fat burners may be worth a try, but if you have a pre-existing medical issue, such as diabetes, high cholesterol, kidney or liver disease, high blood pressure, or heart disease, check with your doctor before trying these products. And regardless of whether or not you add a fat burner to your weight management plan, there are many other steps you can take to kick start your metabolism and nudge the number on the scale in the desired direction.

Water. You may have heard it before, but it bears repeating: staying well hydrated can help with fat loss. Aim for 64 ounces of water per day and you'll likely feel better and may be less tempted to snack mindlessly. Other noncaloric options such as hot or iced tea or sparkling water count too.

Fiber. Fiber-from food and supplements-may be helpful to weight-loss efforts. Fiber will fill you up and has other health benefits too, such as lowering cholesterol. Focus on fiber-rich foods, such as whole grains and raw vegetables and fruit, and slowly add a fiber supplement, such as psyllium or inulin-a type of fiber which comes from chicory root-if desired. Don't forget the water, which your body needs to process the extra roughage.

Effective exercise. High-intensity interval training can burn lots of calories quickly. This kind of exercise involves going all out-so you're breathing hard enough that talking is difficult-for a short time, such as 30 to 60 seconds, followed by a minute or two of lower-intensity activity to recover. The cycle is repeated up to 10 times for a 20-minute workout. Alternate these workouts with regular physical activity throughout the week, and as your fitness improves, you can increase the high-intensity portion of the workout, and decrease the active rest period. If you aren't exercising regularly already, talk to your doctor before starting a high-intensity interval training workout plan.

      I bought this because it was cheap, and I love Muscle Milk so I figured anything else from Cytosport was worth a try. It tasted decent compared to most other pre-workouts, but it wasn't effective for me. I didn't get the energy boost or the sustained energy for longer workouts. It's also inconvenient because you have to drink 3/4 of it 45 minutes before your exercise, and the other 1/4 halfway through your routine. Don't waste your time with this one.

          I like to drink this before morning lifts. It gives me energy (caffeine) and let's me work harder and longer. I definitely feel more sore a few hours later even after drinking a protein shake. If you love to lift hard and have an intense workout this stuff is great. It makes you really want to work hard and have an intense workout and when I drink it all I can do is focus on training.

              Comments about CYTO SPORT CytoSport™ Fast Twitch™- Power Punch:

              To be honest, I bought this on closeout at a local GNC and I am never going to buy any "pre-workout" drink like this ever again.
              I am a very healthy person who my sport and overall health very seriously and I cannot see where such a product could ever fit in.
              This review may just seem like a huge rave to shoot this product down, but please bear with me. It does an awesome job of dilating blood vessels and creating more bloodflow to the body, but it has many different side effects.
              After taking the product, I have developed headaches which have lasted all day long, loss of mental clarity, odd muscle spasms in my left arm and hand, and it upsets my normally very hardy stomach.
              You may find that the increased blood flow is worth all these side-effects, but to me, it is just not worth it.
              The money is much better spent on EAS creatine monohydrate(the best out there-all the tablet creatines are all marketing hype),a good whey protein isolate, or Vitargo S2 for energy.

              Good product. Kinda expensive but seems to really work. 30 mins after taking you get this warm whole body feeling. I added 30mins to my work outs just by taking it. Cons are it is hard to mix and tastes pretty rough. Not at all like fruit punch. But well worth it!!!!

                This stuff gave me the most intense workout I have had in long time, there was not a big case of the jitters but it did keep me going through my whole workout. I was completely done with my routine but the energy was still there. I take the supplement just like it says too, and the results are phenomenal. The taste is great and way better than NoXplode. The last thing is the next day I'm not as sore but that might be the fact that I'm stacking this with Muscle Milk Light. Overall this product is amazing and is now part of my daily routine.
