Sports Supplements


NOT ALL SUPPLEMENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL  

—————————————————————————– 

Having an edge in the gym can not only boost your performance, but also help to build momentum which is key to long term progress. That extra drive, extra endurance, extra strength, can be the difference between making those PR’s and not even having the confidence to attempt PR’s on your MTD’s (Max Test Days). Our sports supplements are the highest quality, elite performance supplements, used by WORLD CHAMPION LIFTERS! Get 10% off your first order by signing up for our newsletter!

Pre-Workout

Deadlift SketchPWE™ (From €13.49)PRE-WORKOUT EXTREME is the ultimate in Pre-Workouts and is packed with 10(!!!) incredible ingredients including Beta Alanine, Citrulline Malate, Schizandra Berry Powder, and more! ALL NATURAL, NO FILLER, and HIGHLY DOSED! This is next level workout nutrition...
Deadlift SketchPWE™ PRO (From €14.49)Just when you thought it couldn't get any better... you get PWE™ Pro! It has all the amazingness of PWE™, but we've added Dextrose, Glycerol Monostearate, and added Schisandrol A, as well as increasing the dose of many of the other ingredients! You will not find anything like it, anywhere!
Deadlift SketchTaurine (From €3.99)Taurine promotes cardiovascular health (Increased VO2 Max – a person’s capacity to transport and utilize oxygen). It is taken pre-workout for its cell volumizing properties which means better pumps and longer workouts, though it can also reduce DOMS!
Deadlift SketchGrape Seed Extract (From €5.99)Commonly used in conjunction with Taurine, grape seed extract is used pre-workout to increase blood flow leading to that feeling of being"pumped". It is also and ultra potent antioxidant and can help with recovery.
Deadlift SketchBeta Alanine (From €5.99)Beta Alanine can help prevent fatigue by raising carnosine levels. Carnosine helps reduce the buildup of hydrogen ions which are thought to be the real culprit behind the burning sensation in your muscles. A must in ANY pre-workout mix!
Deadlift SketchCaffeine (€2.99)It can increase energy levels, alertness, and lifting performance. Caffeine is so potent a performance enhancer, it was once considered as a new addition to the banned substance list for the IOC (later revoked given the prevalence of Caffeine in the average diet)
Deadlift SketchCreatine (From €2.99)Creatine Monohydrate is, without a doubt, a rather wonderful supplement. Used in the production of energy (via the ATP-CP system), raising your bodies levels can increase your available energy as well as a host of other benefits! CM is still the best value and most researched back Creatine you can buy
Deadlift SketchCitrulline (From €13.49)Citulline Malate is a combination of the amino Citrulline and the salt Malate. It has been shown to reduce fatigue as well as DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness).
Deadlift SketchTMG (From €6.49)Trimethyl Glycine is used primarily for its cardio-health properties, though it has also been shown to increase power levels.

 

Intra-Workout

Elite Hydration Formula (From €12.99)This is a must for any serious endurance athlete. Our Hydration Formula contains Branch Chain Amino Acids, Dextrose, Electrolyte Salts, and Guerande Mineral Salts, everything you need! All you have to do is add 1 serving (15 grams) of our Hydration Formula to equal parts water and fruit juice (250ml water and 250ml fruit juice of your choice), and you have an incredible isotonic hydration formula at an unbeatable price!
Tank (From €18.99)This is the first in our proprietary intra-workout series, and we couldn't be prouder! Get ready for a seriously high quality, high potency workout blend! This is 14 ingredients you'll want with you... every workout! (Yeah, you read that right. 14 ingredients!!)
Bulldozer (From €19.99)Ok, so if Tank is your everyday intra... then Bulldozer is the guy you bring to the gym on those special days when things are going to get messy. This is your peaking block blend (we mean it), so save it for those tests of metal and you will be please beyond measure. Get ready...
Steamroller (From €15.99)We felt a 3rd type of intra was needed... Enter Steamroller! This is for all endurance and crossfit style athletes that want a serious blend to make sure they have the energy to finish what they started... war on the barbell.
Branched Chain Amino Acids (From €7.49)Not only are BCAA's a great protein to include in your Intra, but the body can actually use BCAA's as a fuel source during workouts. Branched Chain Amino Acids are comprised of Leucine, Iso-Leucine and Valine, and are believed to have a synergistic effect (though many will look to add extra Leucine).
Leucine (From €5.99)Leucine is one of the branched chain amino acid and is hugely important for protein synthesis (muscle building). It is the most readily oxidized/metabolized of the 3 BCAA's and is therefore the best at increasing insulin
Maltodextrin (From €3.49)A high GI carbohydrate, Maltodextrin gives the muscles fast access to glucose, which is in turn used as energy. Also, an increase in blood sugar will lead to a release of insulin which is used to shuttle nutrients into the muscles
Electrolytes (From €3.49)Electrolyte balance can help with a host of issues, including cramping and dehydration, and can help you workout for longer. Generally best for endurance and crossfit athletes.

 

Post-Workout

Post-Workout Complete (From €18.99)Post-Workout Complete combines the absolute best ingredients to give you an unbeatable post workout protein drink. We favour high quality ingredients that will give you the results you need. That is why we use an Organic Pea & Rice Protein, BCAA's & Leucine, Glutamine, Creatine, HMB. Proteolytic Enzymes, Curcumin Extract, Piperine, and much much more. EVERY INGREDIENT used in PWC has proven itself time and again as incredibly effective.
Zen Warrior Protein (From €20.99)Zen Warrior™ Protein is a blend of 3 vegan proteins, all NATURAL, all ORGANIC, none of which contain any common allergens, which is INCREDIBLY effective and is without a doubt the most exceptional vegan/vegetarian protein blend available. It blends (ratio 2:1:1) Hemp Protein, Rice Protein and Pea Protein, making it incredibly balanced in terms of its amino acid profile, AND We have added Organic Maca to increase its nutrient profile.
Recovery Max (From €16.99)This is a perfectly balanced recovery drink that contains an excellent mix of proteins, fats, minerals, vitamins, anti-inflammatory ingredients, and micro-nutrients. Each 25gm serving includes: Organic Hemp Protein, BCAA’s w/ Leucine, Glutamine, Organic Kale, Ginger Root Powder, Organic Siberian Ginseng, Organic Spirulina, Orange Peel Powder, GSE (Grape Seed Extract), L-Theanine and much more...
Organic Protein Blend (From €18.99)This blend of organic proteins is an excellent post workout choice for those purely interested in health. Rice protein is high in the very important sulfur-containing amino acids, cysteine and methionine, but low in Lysine. Pea Protein is high in Lysine, which means they complement each other very well to create a very balanced amino profile.
Whey Protein (From €19.99)The fastest acting protein available (apart from its synthetically altered counterparts), whey protein is a staple in most post-workout shakes. It has an excellent amino profile and is highly bio-available. Try not to fall victim to Bodybuilding forum "bro-science" which states more is always better with protein. Unless you are 120kg of lean muscle, 25-30 grams of protein post workout should be enough.
Acetyl L-Carnitine (From €11.99)Acetyl L-Carnitine (also known as ALCAR) is an acetylized form of the amino acid Carnitine. It has been shown to help reduce body fat, reduce fatigue, aids blood-flow, increases insulin sensitivity, reduces muscle soreness, and for those interested, it has been shown to increase sperm quality (it doesn't affect women)
Maltodextrin (From €3.49)Is a high GI simple carbohydrate, that is essential post workout. Simple sugars are necessary to help rebuild the muscles and cause a spike in insulin which helps shuttle vital nutrients to the muscles. There is minimal sweetness in the taste, so honey could also be added if you'd like to sweeten up your post-workout protein shake.
Glutamine (From €4.99)A mainstay in any good protein supplement regimen, glutamine can help speed recovery time and reduce muscle soreness. It is one of the most abundant amino acids in the body and is found in high quantities in muscle tissue. Also, it may help to balance blood sugar by helping to slow the release of insulin and even increase HGH.
Creatine Monohydrate (From €2.99)Another mainstay in sports nutrition, creatine is one of those nutrients that's become so mainstream that it deserves a review every few months just to remind you how impressive its array of benefits are. Creatine is incredibly important in energy production, it increases power output, increases anaerobic capacity, reduces fatigue, as well as increasing lean muscle mass... that deserves a second read, right!?
Branched Chain Amino Acids (From €7.99)The BCAA's are Leucine, Iso-Leucine, and Valine, and are all essential amino acids. BCAA's are a great way to increase your overall protein intake, as well as increasing your intake of Leucine which is vital for protein synthesis. After muscle is broken down / damaged during exercise, it needs to be rebuilt, which is done via protein synthesis. Also, higher BCAA levels in protein can increase its bio-availability.
HMB - Hydroxy-MethylButyrate (From €6.49)HMB is a metabolite of Leucine, though it is better known for its ability to prevent muscle breakdown and reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and anti-catabolic nature, than having any role in protein synthesis. As such, it's used by many bodybuilders during their cutting phase.

Brewer's Yeast Powder (150gm) €7.99
Vector workout, sport icons setCholine becomes Acytelcholine in the body, which is a hugely important neurotransmitter. This means that Choline is very important for cognitive function. It has also been shown to help with liver health, and reduce cholesterol.Choline Powder (100 grams) €4.99
Depositphotos_49738577_originalAs we mentioned in the post-workout nutrition table, Creatine is a mainstay in sports nutrition, though it also has some rather remarkable benefits above and beyond these. It has, in recent studies, been shown to have neuro-protective properties, in particular with regards degenerative brain diseases, and all you need is 1 gram a day to benefit from its neuro-protective properties.Creatine Monohydrate Powder (100gm) €2.99
CysteineCysteine is necessary in the creation of Glutathione, a potent antioxidant in the body. This reduces oxidative stress brought about by intense exercise. It's also vital for boosting the immune system, and the protection of your body's cells against free radicals, which are neutralized by antioxidants. Glutathione is also a potent liver detoxifier, removing chemicals that are foreign to the body. We use an acetylated version of Cysteine to make it more bio-available.

NAC Capsules (100)
Blackboard with the chemical formula of GlutamineGlutamine, apart from helping speed recovery time and reducing muscle soreness, is also able to boost the immune system as well as promote intestinal health and help to repair intestinal damage (help to heal your GI tract and even repair leaky gut). Also, it may help to balance blood sugar by helping to slow the release of insulin and even increase HGH.Glutamine Powder (100gm) €4.49
GlycineBesides its uses in workout drinks, Glycine (rather strangely) has been shown to dramatically increase sleep quality when ingested 30-60 minutes before bed. It also plays a role in prevention of neuro-behavioral issues by working with Taurine and GABA as neuro-inhibitors. This is hugely important for mental health.
The role Glycine (much like other amino acids) plays in the body is far beyond that of forming muscles. It is needed for both CNS and digestive health and is used in the breakdown of fat.
Glycine Powder (100 grams) €4.99

Glycine Capsules (100) €6.99
Vector workout, sport icons setAn outright superfood. Provides so much benefit for something so small, including cardiovascular health, anti cancer properties, and cognitive health, as well as helping to level blood sugar, reduce the likelihood that plaque will form in your arteries, reduce inflammation, and improve cholesterol and triglycerides metabolismGrapeseed Capsules 250mg (60) €5.99
Hand Harvested Sea SaltHand Harvested Sea Salts from the coast of France, which have an absolutely exceptional mineral profile. Table salt (to be avoided at all costs) contains 2 minerals (Sodium and Chloride) and is generally synthesized in a lab. Conversely, our Celtic mineral salts have over 80 naturally occurring, vital minerals!

This is hugely important considering how deficient our modern diet is in minerals and micro-nutrients.
Hand Harvested Sea Salt (250gm) €1.99
Vector workout, sport icons setVital in protein synthesis, and a very important and abundant protein besides this. It is essential, and as such must be obtained through dietary intake. It is a branched chain amino acid and as such can be used as fuel by your body, as well as being hugely important for protein synthesis (muscle building). It is the most readily oxidized/metabolized of the 3 BCAA's and is therefore the best at increasing insulin which can help with nutrient uptake.Leucine Powder (100gm) €5.99
Vector workout, sport icons setMagnesium has been shown to lower blood pressure in people whose BP is elevated. It can also help reduce insulin spikes and increase insulin sensitivity. Magnesium is believed to help with your electrolyte balance and can play a role in bone density. Magnesium has also shown to have a protective effect against depression (which has been caused by Magnesium deficiency).
Vector workout, sport icons setMethylsulphonylmethane is a sulfurous molecule that has been shown to reduce muscle soreness, and reduce muscle damage brought on by physical exertion. It also can help with joint health and collagen production, as well as reducing inflammation. Oddly enough, there are also studies that show MSM can reduce nasal congestion and act as an antihistamineMSM Powder (100 grams) €4.49
Vector workout, sport icons setTaurine is an (sulphonic) amino acid that's found in large amounts in the heart, brain and other tissues, and accounts for up to 0.1% of total human body weight. Taurine promotes cardiovascular health (Increased VO2 Max – a person’s capacity to transport and utilize oxygen), insulin sensitivity, electrolyte balance, hearing function, neurological development and immune modulation.

While Taurine is an amino acid, its behaviour is closer to an antioxidant. Taurine levels can decrease with age, so it is believed that supplementing with Taurine can improve cognitive function in the elderly
Taurine Capsules 500mg (120) €5.99

Taurine Powder (100gm) €3.99
Vector workout, sport icons setTri-Methyl Glycine is another hugely intriguing nutrient. Shown to both increase power output, and in the same fell swoop reduce homocysteine levels,

Also, for those interested, a lot of attention is now being given to methyl groups health giving and protective effects on our body, so things naturally high in methyl donors should be consumed regularly (Choline, TMG/Betaine, Vitamin B9, Vitamin B12, and MSM)
TMG Powder (100gm) €6.49
Vector workout, sport icons setZinc is essential in a huge number of enzymatic processes and offers a huge number of benefits including cognitive health, better sleep quality, and hormone balance.
