Post-workout recovery complex
Most intense exercise regimens – including CrossFit® and other high-intensity functional training styles – burn up a lot of carbohydrates and tear down muscle tissue, therefore efficient recovery requires reloading carbohydrates and protein or amino acids, as well as some other micronutrients such as electrolytes, and of course water. Managing inflammation can be useful as well. Especially critical is this nutritional support post-workout if additional exercise sessions are scheduled for the same day! WOD CRUSHER’s BALANCED RECOVERY post-workout recovery formula is engineered to provide significant and balanced support with its advanced proteins and carbohydrate matrix, plus several useful extra ingredients as fortification!
ADVANCED PROTEINS: our formula is based on what is regarded as the best of the best – hydrolysed whey protein, which is an enzymatically “pre-digested” protein, it’s already broken down to some extent in similar fashion to digestion, therefore its absorption and utilization is the greatest. Whey protein is the industry standard even in the CrossFit® world, since its biological value is the highest! Protein’s role is well-known, but in highlights: protein can contribute to the maintenance or growth of muscle mass, and to the maintenance of normal bones!*
ADVANCED CARBOHYDRATE MATRIX: in a specific ratio to protein, we provide a carbohydrate matrix that features different release-time carbs. Fast and sustained release characteristic substances are both included, among them Palatinose™ and Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin!
EXTRA AMINO ACID support: we added the amino acid Taurine, which is a semi-essential amino acid that acts as a lipid membrane stabilizer in the body and can aid various anti-oxidant defense systems.
EXTRA IMMUNE support: Vitamin C helps to protect cells from oxidative stress and contributes to normal collagen formation for the normal function of cartilages, bones, blood vessels, gums, teeth and skin*. Vitamin C also contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense physical exercise (the beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 200 mg in addition to the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C)!*
BALANCED RECOVERY also contains electrolytes (Potassium, Chloride, Sodium, Calcium, Magnesium). Potassium contributes to normal muscle function, helps with the normal functioning of the nervous system and the maintenance of normal blood pressure!*
Bromelain is a pineapple extract, a mixture of protein-digesting enzymes called proteases.
Mix 1 serving (70 g) in 400 ml water daily. Best time to use is after a workout.
Manufactured in a facility that processes milk, egg, gluten, soy, peanuts, nuts, fish and crustacean ingredients.

supplementation for serious lifters
Animal Test™ is hypertrophic pro-testosterone supplementation that combines powerful extracts with one of the most potent, effective and studied compounds in the industry. It is legal supplementation for serious lifters.
Animal Test is the ultimate in legal hypertrophic, pro-testosterone supplementation. Combining the most potent natural extracts with one of the hottest, patented, proven supplements to hit the industry in recent years, the all new Animal Test redefines the capabilities of over-the-counter bodybuilding supplementation.
The Pro-Androgen portion of the Animal Test formula couples dynamic herbal extracts designed to facilitate a rise in free and total testosterone with effective anti-estrogen compounds capable of maximizing the natural anabolic response. Translation? Explosive gains in strength and size. This complex includes the revered free test potentiator 3-4 divanillyl tetrahydrofuran. Divanillyl is a lignan extracted from stinging nettle best known to inhibit sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG). In high enough dosages, like the one contained in Animal Test, Divanillyl allows for the enhanced activation of free testosterone which promotes gains in strength and size as well as improved focus, recovery and gym performance.
Animal Test is also loaded with anabolic ketosterones extracted from Cissus Quadrangularis—another exciting new bodybuilding ingredient. These ketosterones have been revered for promoting anabolism, boosting recovery and staving off the production of catabolic stress hormones. Beyond these obvious muscle and strength building properties, cissus has also been touted as a potent antioxidant capable of improving joint and ligament health, a side benefit worth noting for individuals making dramatic gains in size and strength over a short period of time.
Lastly, yohimbe extract rounds out the Animal Test Pro-Androgen Complex. Yohimbe bark extract has been shown to increase fatty acid mobilization from fat stores via increased noradrenaline (norepinephrine) levels and provides a strong boost in stamina. Designed to enable physique recomposition and to support a healthy libido, yohimbe extract can aid in ensuring the development of lean, hard mass.
In order to capitalize on the blast of utilizable testosterone provided by these pro-androgen ingredients, Animal Test comes fully equipped with a combination of cutting edge anti-estrogens. First among these is the ultra antioxidant Trans Resveratrol. Trans-Resveratrol acts like a shield. It binds to the estrogen receptor and works to block circulating estrogen hormones from ever hitting the target receptor, thus inhibiting unwanted estrogens from reaching the hormone receptor.
Trans Resveratrol is fortified by hearty dosages of other proven anti-estrogens, namely, 3’,5,7-Trihydroxy-4’-Methoxyflavone (Hesperetin) and Agaricus Bisporus polysaccharides. Agaricus Bisporus is an extract of the white button mushroom. These polysaccharides have been shown to act upon the aromatase enzyme via multiple pathways so as to cripple any estrogenic response to a new abundance of free circulating testosterone. Hesperitin appears to work by inhibiting the aromatase enzyme, thus reducing excess testosterone to estrogen conversion and allowing more of the desired testosterone to be available for the receptors.
In summary, these constituents work to block circulating estrogen from reaching receptors as well as negating the inevitable estrogen boost brought about by excessive testosterone production, thus directly and indirectly promoting a higher ratio of circulating serum testosterone. Both components of the Pro-Androgen complex are assured for utmost efficiency and uptake through the inclusion of 6’,7’-Dihydroxybergamottin and patented Bioperine—the very best absorption-enhancing ingredients available today.
The final and perhaps the most dramatically powerful element of the new Animal Test formula is the inclusion of the highly heralded, proven and patented hypertrophic agent, Arachidonic Acid (AA). Backed by university research studies and real world testimonials, AA has taken the bodybuilding world by storm—and for good reason.
Arachidonic Acid has multiple benefits for the hard training bodybuilder, the most dramatic of which are the ability for it to enhance androgen receptor sensitivity and to amplify training related muscle inflammation and in turn magnify hypertrophy. AA is an essential fatty acid that sits at the very core of the body’s physiological response to weight training.
When lifting weights, muscle fibers are damaged and AA is released. Its release alters local chemistry, which causes a shift that favors anabolism. The general anabolic cascade begins with the release of AA and is greatly amplified in the presence of more AA. This translates into more androgen receptors (increasing testosterone sensitivity), heightened IGF-1 signaling, greater vasodilation and even enhanced lipolysis. The availability of AA appears to dictate how strongly this anabolic cascade will be stimulated with training.
The more AA you have in your muscle tissue, the easier it is to liberate and trigger growth. This status as an anabolic catalyst made it the perfect backbone for this new Animal formula as it provides muscle building qualities by itself as it augments the actions of the other extremely powerful ingredients that together comprise Animal Test.
With a storied past and a world of potential for future gains, Animal Test reemerges. Combining premium, cutting edge compounds with patented proven ingredients, Animal Test returns as the most powerful product in the Animal line. Not for the faint of heart, Test is the answer for the dyed in the wool power athlete looking to make explosive gains by natural means.
Advanced level bodybuilders and power athletes looking to maximize gains in strength and lean mass.
Take one pack daily with food. On training days take one pack along with the meal prior to your workout. Animal Test works ideally when in conjunction with intense training and an increase in quality calories and protein. Also, be sure to prioritize proper hydration during an Animal Test cycle. For best results use for two consecutive cycles--a total of 42 days. Afterwards take 4 weeks off. During this time, Animal M-Stak is recommended to preserve lean mass gains.
Animal Test may be stacked with Pak. Test can also be used in conjunction with Animal Pump to optimize gym performance or with Animal Stak in order to fully maximize hormone output. Cycle off of Test with Animal M-Stak in order to maintain mass gains.

NON-STIM VASODILATOR NUTRIENT DELIVERY MAXIMIZER
PSI Vasodilator Nutrient Delivery Maximizer is an effective scientifically dosed non-stimulant (caffeine-free) pre-workout by EHPlabs. PSI is meticulously engineered to boost physical performance during exercise by enhancing natural energy production and vasodilation. The unique combination of powerful nitric oxide and muscle cell plasma volumizing ingredients in PSI pre-workout maximises nutrient and oxygen delivery to working muscles, assisting you to force out extra reps, as well as giving you a mind-blowing pump.
PSI Vasodilator Nutrient Delivery Maximizer sets a new standard for non-stim pre-workout products. PSI Pre-workout promotes mental focus, clarity and serotonin release factors by combining the optimal ratio of taurine and tyrosine. PSI Non-Stim pre-workout will assist you with your conscious muscle contractions during physical exercise (“mind-muscle connection”), as tyrosine is a precursor to neurotransmitters,thyroxine and growth hormone.
PSI pre-workout is a fast acting non-stim product which will dramatically improve your workouts. Be prepared for an amazing training session, huge pumps and intense vasodilation before consumption.
Attention: PSI does NOT contain any caffeine or other central nervous stimulants. You may consume PSI in the evenings prior to training and it should not affect your ability to sleep. PSI will increase oxygen and nutrient delivery to working muscles which may cause a natural increase in energy (ATP production).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW MANY SERVINGS OF PSI CAN I TAKE PER DAY?
The recommended dose is 1 serving per day and we recommend taking no more than 2 scoops of PSI pre-workout per day. You should test your tolerance to PSI by starting with ½ a scoop first and building up from there.(due to safety...you can obviously take more but they can't recommend more due to the ingredients)
WHY IS PSI SUCH A FAST ACTING PRODUCT?
PSI is fast acting due to its potent vasodilator delivery system containing ingredients such as Agmatine Sulfate and L-Arginine. These ingredients help to increase the bio-availability of nitric oxide leading to an increase in blood flow and oxygen and nutrient delivery. These ingredients have a flow on effect to each other which creates a strong physiological and mental response.
COMPARED TO OTHER PRE-WORKOUTS I’VE USED IN THE PAST, PSI SEEMS TO HAVE SMALLER OR MORE CONTROLLED DOSAGES OF VARIOUS INGREDIENTS, DOES THIS MEAN I MAY NOT FEEL THE EFFECTS OF THEM?
PSI has been scientifically formulated to be one of the most effective non-stimulatory pre-workouts on the market. Instead of filling it with huge amounts of each ingredient, we have researched the optimal combination and concentration of ingredients that work to synergistically trigger a positive homeostatic energy release, improve cognitive ability, reduce fatigue and enhance muscular and cardiovascular endurance. PSI is scientifically balanced and focussed on the key ingredients required to provide optimal vasodilation to contribute to a great pump while also increasing mental focus without having excess levels of ingredients which would be wasted by your body otherwise. You will still feel the PSI pre-workout and notice a significant increase in blood flow.
WHAT IS VASODILATION?
Vasodilation is the process where Nitric Oxide (NO) acts on your blood vessels to increase in diameter (dilate) which allows for an increase in blood flow around the body and to your working muscles. This helps to improve oxygen and nutrient delivery while also delaying the effects of fatigue due to the transportation of metabolic by-products out of muscle cells. This in turn contributes to greater mental focus as more oxygen and nutrients are delivered to your brain.
HOW LONG BEFORE MY WORKOUT SHOULD I TAKE PSI?
PSI should be consumed approximately 20 minutes before exercise to allow for maximal absorption.
WILL PSI GIVE ME A TINGLING SENSATION?
No, PSI will not give you a tingling sensation as it does not contain the amino acid Beta Alanine. It will however increase the feeling of muscle fullness and 'pump' due to its vasodilator boosting effects along with a decrease in fatigue.
DOES THE PERSON USING PSI CRASH AFTER THE EFFECTS WEAR OFF?
PSI pre-workout should not cause any post-workout crash as it works by increasing blood flow around your body and improving mental focus and cognitive ability. It is non-stimulatory so there is very little effect on your adrenal glands and cortisol.
CAN I USE PSI IN THE LATE AFTERNOON? (LESS THAT 5 HOURS BEFORE BED, WILL IF AFFECT MY SLEEP?)
Yes, you can use PSI pre-workout in the late afternoon as it is a non-stimulatory supplement. It should not affect your sleep as it focuses on improving blood flow and helps to remove metabolic by-products from your muscles.
DO I HAVE TO TAKE PSI ON AN EMPTY STOMACH?
You don't have to take PSI on an empty stomach, however, it is beneficial to take PSI 1-2 hours after you have eaten so that it is quickly absorbed which helps to maximise the effects of this pre-workout.
CAN I TAKE PSI FOR NON-PHYSICAL RELATED ACTIVITIES (I.E STUDYING, ETC)
Although PSI pre-workout has been formulated as a pre-workout product, the key cognitive ability and mental focus enhancers, along with vasodilators may assist people with other non-physical related activities such as studying due to the increase in blood flow and oxygen delivery to the brain.

The Ultimate Protector
Resilience by definition is the ability to learn, adapt and implement change; to bounce back and go again with a knowledge and understanding of how to best avoid that same outcome again. This is how our immune system is designed to be; however just like a seesaw, sometimes one side can become stuck down and you can end up with an underactive or overactive immune system that causes chaos, inflammation, flushing and a compromised feeling of being.
The human body is an extremely intelligent machine that our innate immune system helps to keep in check – it responds to the threat and signals the all clear once the mission is complete. Resilience helps to support this integral function by providing an adaptogenic formula that allows for balance by lifting up the immune system or bringing it back down to balance once again in whichever direction may be required and building our defence for whatever comes next!
