what makes rpm effective?

A combination of carefully selected ingredients which when combined produce amazing reults like no other pre-workout before it.

l-arginine best

L-Arginine is an amino acid that is necessary for cell division, ammonia displacement, hormone release, and immune function.* Most importantly, L-Arginine is necessary for the production of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is derived from arginine and oxygen through a process called nitric oxide synthase, and exerts its effects on tissue through cGMP. The inclusion of Arginine in the P-SARM Synthase AI complex allows for a steady, continuous supply of L-Arginine for conversion to nitric oxide, allowing for a more effective product. Numerous research studies suggest the positive effects of L-Arginine and nitric oxide on supporting lean body mass, and possibly even mediating greater growth hormone response.* (4-7,14)

grape seed

OPCs (Oligomeric proanthocyanidins) are suggested by numerous studies to have the support a healthy rate of converting androgens to estrogens (a process known as aromatizing).* Compounds exhibiting aromatase inhibiting characteristics have been suggested to reduce SHBG (steroid hormone binding globulin) as well. This is important because this supports free testosterone, which promotes longer, harder more intense workouts, rapid strength increases, greater protein synthesis, quicker recovery, and increased lipolysis (fat burning). This, coupled with the androgen-mimicking qualities of Icariin, gives the product a unique “hardness” enhancing quality unlike anything else available.* (15-21)


Naringin, and its novel component Naringenin, also contribute profoundeffects within the P-SARM Synthase AI complex. Naringin (and Naringenin) may help support a healthy testosterone to estrogen balance.* The combination of OPCs and naringenin act synergistically in supporting estrogen balance; allowing for more circulating free testosterone and all of its associated benefits. Naringin and naringenin have also been suggested to enhance the metabolism of caffeine and PDE5 inhibitors such as icariin, allowing for these compounds to be much more effective on a per dose basis.* (22-29)


Icariin is a potent phytochemical that has been suggested to have profound effects on anabolism.* Icariin exerts its efficacy through several different mechanisms of action: Via competition with glucocorticoids and increasing cAMP levels, by modulating estrogen receptor antagonism and by decreasing prolactin levels.* Several studies suggest that Icariin competes with glucocorticoids for various receptor sites, and thus supports the Testosterone/Cortisol (T:C) ratio.* Icariin may also help support a healthy cortisol balance.* This alone creates an anabolic effect by positively supporting the Testosterone/Cortisol T:C ratio which is a trigger for greater anabolism, protein synthesis, increased aggression, and intensified muscle contractions.* (1-2,9,13-17)

cocoa extract

Cocoa Extract is comprised of several different important constituents that support mood, cognitive awareness, and muscle contraction.* PEA, tyramine, and L-tyrosine are the most prevalent constituents of cacao, and have the biggest impact on the positive effects of the compound. The amino acid tyrosine has psycho-stimulant effects that support cognitive function, because tyrosine is a precursor to the neurotransmitter dopamine. Tyrosine supplementation has been suggested to increase dopamine and norepinephrine levels, which may be helpful for supporting athletic ability and cognitive function.* Tyrosine also has the ability to ward off exercise-related fatigue by creating a favorable dopamine / serotonin ratio, which can positively alter the subject’s state of mind and reduce mental fatigue.* (37-40)


Caffeine is a metabolic stimulant that heightens mental alertness and focus and improves muscle contraction and coordination. MXAC also exerts very strong effects on vasodilation in a process that begins with the activation of norepinephrine and the deactivation of cAMP-PDE (the enzyme that breaks down cAMP). When cAMP levels are increased, the blood vessels in skeletal muscle tend to relax and dilate. The result is more voluminous blood flow into the muscle, resulting in bulging vascularity and massive pumps.* Caffeine also contains significant amounts of theobromine; another vasodilator that ups the amount of nutrients and oxygen into the brain and skeletal muscle.* By blocking adenitric oxidesine uptake without activating adenitric oxidesine receptors, Caffeine triggers increased dopamine and serotonin levels which exerts a positive influence on mood and helps the subject maintain an improved state of mind and focus.* (30-36,40)

I loved this product, this deliver fairly quick intense energy and really nice pumps, it also seemed to have some thermogenic properties, had me sweating my *** off, I also enjoyed that it doesn't last quite as long as uncut which makes it a better choice for evening lifters. If your unsure try out that drive rpm stack it's cheap and will give you an idea of the product, or ask any rep for samples. App nut makes some amazing pre's.

ENERGY 8.5/10 The energy in rmp is comparable to the energy in Uncut with a little more kick, but not much. It is suttle but it gets you going and helps you push out a rep or two and it fades out gradualy without any crash or jitters FOCUS 7/10 Decent focus in RPM but nowhere as comparable to Uncut. I felt like i could be on the verge of tunnel vison but i was a few steps back to really get into it but it provided me with a good focus to keep me hitting the next set and not breaking out of my workout. Its better than a lot of other pre's, i can tell you that for sure PUMP 10/10 This is where RPM... picked up speed!(get it?! rpm picking up speed? im too corny lol) When i took RPM, i was doing back and the next day i did bicep. Usualy my back never gets even an ounce of pump in it but let me tell you something, i had huge pump in my back with RPM!!! I was actually surprised because i have never felt that much pump in my back! And as for my bicep day, i usualy get good pump in them no matter what but when i did bis witth RPM, i had to cool down for a good while near the end of my workout because i couldent bend my arms too well at one point! OVERALL 9/10 Easily put, this is a great pump pre workout! It has a solid energy and focus with an outstanding pump aspect to it! Only complaint for RPM is the slight lack of focus but that can be fixed with an uncut

I really didn't get much from this preworkout unfortunately. I took 3 pills a half hour before my workout and didn't feel much in terms of energy, focus, or pump. Very disappointing, especially considering that Uncut was a pretty solid preworkout. If you're looking for a capsule preworkout, I'd look at Uncut rather than this.

This is a real good energy booster. The energy I got from it was smoother I guess since it had no yohimbine which gives me a more jittery anxious kind of feel which I also like but this was different. Stack 1 to 1.5 bronkaid tabs with three makes a pretty awesome preworkout
