What are Intra-Workout Supplements?
An intra-workout supplement is something you can take during your workout or sport to help maximise your performance in the gym, on the track, or on the pitch.
From intra-workout carbs to amino acids, we’ve got a range of products to help push your performance. Check out of specially designed Intra Workout, our refreshing formula is perfect for sipping on during any workout. We’ve combined fast-releasing carbs, with amino acids, and electrolytes to help replenish the salts lost through exercise.
Our Intra-Workout Carbs
Taking carbohydrates during exercise can help boost your performance, providing that quick source of energy — when you need it most. Carbohydrates are a key source of energy for your body, making our range of carbs perfect for keeping you topped up and ready to achieve your goals.
Our 100% Dextrose Glucose Carbs are made entirely from dextrose powder. This sweet-tasting carb is fast-absorbing and perfect for anyone looking for a super-quick boost of carbs.
We’ve also got 100% Maltodextrin Carbs, that are packed with 50g of carbs per serving — that’s fast-digesting for a great immediate energy source.
Our Intra-Workout Amino Acids
With a 2:1:1 ratio of leucine, isoleucine, and valine — our Essential BCAA 2:1:1 provides the optimal ratio of amino acids to support your fitness goals. As they’re essential amino acids, they can’t be produced by the body, so must come from our diet.
If you’re looking for our most advanced amino formula, The Amino+ is for you. Powered by PhaseTech™ delayed-release technology, and packed with 14g of amino acids, it’s delivers the perfect boost when you need it most.*
And, if you’re looking for a supplement that provides a stimulating caffeine pick-me-up, The Amino Energy will help fuel your body and mind.1 With 3g of BCAAs, natural sources of caffeine, and vitamin C, it’s the ideal intra-workout supplement to help you reach your fitness goals.*
1 Caffeine helps to increase alertness and improve concentration.

What should I take intra-workout?
You should aim to take some form of fluid intra-workout which is rich in electrolytes and also easily digested and absorbed carbohydrate sources.
Which intra-workout is for me?
Powders and drinks may be most advisable as they help provide additional fluids along with the electrolytes and carbohydrates. Tablets may be a more practical choice for some however who find that taking in fluid during exercise affects their performance negatively.
Is it necessary to take an intra-workout?
It depends on the type of activity; those performing long duration, endurance exercise, such as running and cycling, may require intra-workout nutrition to sustain performance.
How many carbs should I have intra-workout?
The maximal absorption rate of carbohydrate is around 60g per hour so it depends on the length of your workout. If you use a multisource carbohydrate mix too this absorption rate can increase as different carbohydrates use different transport proteins during absorption.
When should I take an intra-workout?
If you have chosen an intra-workout product, it would be advised to take sips throughout your workout. Not only will this help maintain hydration levels, but also provides your body with a constant stream of alternative energy which can minimise fatigue and optimise performance.
What makes a good intra-workout?
