MatFuel + Combat Cut
$78 Just $57
MatFuel is made as a pre-workout that is focused on ENDURANCE and BRAIN FUNCTION, not strength and power. It gives you a calm energy that enhances your time on that mats. It doesn't feel like you trying hard and anytime you need to pick up the pace, you'll notice you can move faster than normal without getting gassed.
It is designed so you can feel great taking it every day, which is NOT the case with other pre-workouts.
With MatFuel you should be able to train more often, for longer periods of time, while going harder than you are used to. This combination will help you improve faster, enjoy yourself more, and get more from the time you have on the mats.
With MatFuel, you will notice:
- Increased endurance
- Decreased perceived level of exertion (doesn't feel like you're trying hard)
- Extremely rapid recovery between rounds
- Ability to roll harder and faster
- Clearer thinking and better decision-making
What's inside MatFuel?
Beta Alanine is a powerful amino acid for increasing muscle endurance. Studies show that beta-alanine helps increase your time to exhaustion (TTE). It enables us to train harder and longer while feeling less fatigued. It may also help reduce lactic acid build up in the muscles and aid recovery after strenuous workouts.
It can cause a sensation called paraesthesia, often described as “tingling of the skin.” It’s usually experienced in the face, neck and the back of the hands within 15 minutes of taking it. This is NOT harmful at all, but it's a good indicator that it's working!
Betaine Anhydrous (TMG)
TMG is another amino acid that is very unique because it helps with a process called methylation. When your body does not properly methylate, you feel it! Symptoms are things like chronic fatigue, low energy, brain fog, memory issues, and so much more. Introducing TMG can make a huge difference right away!
The first time I took it, I went for a 7 mile run. I would normally take about 11 minutes per mile to do the run... not too impressive. But that day I shattered all of my best times per mile AND for ran the entire run 14 minutes faster than my previous best. The effects did not remain as extreme after a few weeks, but it's definitely a difference-maker. You'll notice it in your Jiu Jitsu game too!
Caution: Many pre-workouts contain far too much TMG! This causes over-methylation, which can be worse than under-methylating. This is a big reason many feel "cracked-out" and even angry after taking pre-workouts, and then not being able to sleep late into the night. MatFuel contains just the right amount for most people, so that you feel energized and maintain a great mood.
Taurine is a unique compound that calms your nerves and stimulates your mind! This combination helps you to make better decisions and keep focused. Some MatFuel fans have reported that instead of being corrected by their coach 100 times, they are able to see new techniques or opportunities during a roll in real time. You might blame Taurine for this. It might be what you need to tame that inner spazz!
Guarana Extract (22% Caffeine)
Guarana, which comes from a shrub native to Brazil, has been used in food and drinks for hundreds of years for their many health benefits... but also because it contains caffeine! As we all know, caffeine is important for greater attentiveness and improved mood, as well as many other benefits. Many MatFuel fans cut back on their coffee or substitute it completely with MatFuel without any side effects at all.
Rhodiola Extract (3% Salidroside)
Rhodiola is proven through many experiments to significantly lower the rate of perceived exertion that athletes have during an endurance workout. That means they like they weren't trying as hard to do the same thing they would do without Rhodiola, even though they had the same energy expenditure. This will become important when you're dealing with the super fast cardio guys that you can't hold down! Besides reducing perceived fatigue, it's also known for improving cognition and reducing markers of physiological and psychological stress.
Tongkat Ali is useful to help maintain a healthy mood and contribute to a calm overall well-being. That's important when someone has you in a rear naked choke and you are waiting for them to blow their grips out. It's also known for boosting testosterone levels, improving endurance, strength and recovery.
ABOUT COMBAT CUT
It's no secret we lose weight by consuming less calories than we burn, but that's easier said than done. I created Combat Cut when my own weight loss efforts for competition hit a wall, and I couldn't lose any more, yet it was obvious that I had the worst body composition of anyone in my weight class. I quickly saw incredible results and my training partners began to notice as well.
Combat Cut helps with fat burning through multiple mechanisms:
- Boost energy levels, making it easier to stick to a diet and avoid excess snacking.
- Suppressing appetite by increasing levels of the neurotransmitters that keep you happy and reduce cravings.
- Inhibiting activity of enzymes involved in fat storage while increasing activity of enzymes involved in the breakdown of stored fats to increase the rate at which the body burns fat.
- Preserve muscle mass and reduce muscle damage, especially during weight loss.
- Acting as a thermogenic to increase your body temperature and burning more calories, increasing your baseline of daily caloric expenditures.
What's inside Combat Cut?
ALCAR HCl (Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl)
ALCAR (Acetyl L-Carnitine HCl) increases fat burning by increasing the activity of enzymes involved in the breakdown of stored fats. This can help to increase the rate at which the body burns fat and support weight loss.
ALCAR can also help to preserve muscle mass, which can help to prevent muscle wasting and maintain muscle mass, specially during weight loss. Additionally, ALCAR may help to boost energy levels, making it easier to stick to a diet and exercise program.
HMB (beta-hydroxy beta-methylbutyric acid)
When cutting weight, caloric restriction can cause muscle loss, which can negatively impact strength and performance. However, HMB, a metabolite of the amino acid leucine, can help to reduce muscle damage and muscle loss, which can help to prevent muscle wasting and maintain muscle mass. In addition, HMB may also increase fat burning and energy metabolism, which can also contribute to weight loss. HMB has been found to increase the activity of enzymes involved in the breakdown of stored fats, which can help to increase the rate at which the body burns fat. HMB is also known to improve strength and power output in athletes, which can lead to burn more calories and support weight loss.
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA)
Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) is a fatty acid that is found in small amounts in certain foods. Studies have shown that CLA may help to reduce body fat, particularly in the abdominal region. It is thought that CLA may work by inhibiting the activity of enzymes involved in fat storage and increasing the activity of enzymes involved in fat breakdown.
CLA may also help to increase muscle mass, which can help to boost metabolism and burn more calories. This can be especially beneficial for those looking to lose weight and improve body composition.
Garcinia Cambogia 60% HCA
Garcinia Cambogia is a popular tropical fruit that suppresses appetite by increasing levels of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain. This can help to reduce cravings and make it easier to stick to a diet. Additionally, HCA may also help to inhibit the production of fat in the body by blocking an enzyme called citrate lyase, which is involved in the conversion of carbohydrates into fat.
Yohimbe Extract (2% Yohimbine)
Yohimbe extract can help increase the activity of enzymes in your body that are responsible for breaking down stored fats, which can increase the rate at which your body burns fat. Additionally, Yohimbe extract may also help suppress your appetite by increasing levels of neurotransmitters that help regulate appetite, which can help reduce cravings. Yohimbe extract may also help preserve muscle mass, especially during weight loss. This can prevent muscle wasting and help you maintain muscle mass.
Caffeine does it all! It has been found to boost metabolism, which can help to burn more calories and support weight loss. Caffeine may also increase the activity of enzymes involved in the breakdown of stored fats, which can help to increase the rate at which the body burns fat. It helps to suppress appetite by reducing hunger hormones and increasing feelings of fullness. And as we all know, caffeine can increase energy levels and keep you feeling great even in a caloric deficit.
