Product Overview

Protect your muscles from exercise-induced catabolism (EIC) and improve your caloric efficiency for more muscle with less fat.* In the first moments of a workout your body begins signaling for enzymes that have only one purpose... to chew up your muscle tissue for its vital, energy rich, essential amino acids. The more muscle that is destroyed, the less growth you'll get and the longer it will take to recover. Nearly all of the protein synthesis that occurs after training is wasted on rebuilding; little is left for new growth. In fact, this process is more damaging for some people. This can make muscle growth frustrating and difficult for everyone-even for athletes that appear to be making gains.

Stop The Catabolic Cycle*

CHAMPION NUTRITION's new Amino Shooter, pre-workout drink, can help protect you from the negative effects of exercise-induced catabolism that occur in the first moments of your workout.* Amino Shooter provides your body with a uniquely balanced combination of free-form, essential amino acids that take only minutes to be absorbed and go to work.* Amino Shooter's special amino blend is suggested to reduce the degradation of muscle and increase protein synthesis at the same time.* Protein supplements take too long to digest and BCAA's alone don't provide the necessary range of essential amino acids found in Amino Shooter.

More Efficient Calories*

Amino Shooter also has a caloric efficiency than a protein drink!* Caloric efficiency is the ratio of muscle-stimulating calories to fat-stimulating calories.

Higher Caloric Efficiency Means More Muscle With Less Fat*

We formulated Amino Shooter to contain exactly what was needed to stimulate muscle growth and skipped the rest.* Carbohydrate doesn't directly make muscles grow! They only provide energy (before training they will also reduce fat loss); and non-essential amino acids are just that, non-essential. Your body makes them from the essentials. This is why protein drinks are not efficient. Their non-essential amino acids are not important for muscle growth; they only provide extra calories. Only EAA's are essential for muscle protein synthesis. The higher your diet is in the EAA's the higher your caloric efficiency, and the better your ratio of muscle to fat gain.*

Add Amino Shooter to a bottle of water before your next workout and train knowing that this time you won't be held back by the negative effects of EIC.*

Took this product during workouts and during my soccer games. Noticed a big difference in my muscle soreness, way less soreness than i usually get. Taste for me was ok. Taste like watered down juice. But quality of product was great.

75mg caffeine was good during middle of shifts when I was starting to drag. Kept me going which was nice. Also great for when work is too busy and I haven't eaten in a few hours. Taste is decent, not very strong which may be a turn off for some, but it definitely isn't bad. The Amino Shooter Edge has more of a punch when it comes to flavor, so that may be something future buyers may want to consider.

This product delivers a nice dose of nine different Amino Acids in every serving, including about 3g of the BCAAs, but it also packs a small amount of caffeine for a nice additional kick. This results in a quality intraworkout beverage that will help you with overall training performance. I also find that taking a serving before doing cardio increased my energy level during cardio. Taking it as a PWO right before weight training didn't have quite as much of an impact on me, for starters because I'm used to more heavy duty PWOs and I don't get the sense this product was intended to compete with those products on that level anyway. But if you're a believer in the power of an energized Amino Acid beverage as an intra-workout or even pre-cardio drink, this won't disappoint. The flavor's pretty good too, even though the package says to mix with 16oz. of water. I found this to result in too much of a watered down taste, but when mixed with 12oz. water, the Fruit Punch flavor was pretty solid. The price could perhaps be a little lower, but since you're getting individual serving packets, there's a convenience factor there that perhaps is worth a few extra cents per serving. All in all, a solid product that I would recommend if you're looking for a little extra intra-workout kick.

I received four sample packets to try. I tried them in as many different situations as I could. I mix my own pre-workout so I used one packet with my pre-workout. It mixed well and did well masking the flavors of the other ingredients. I used about 8 oz of water. Worked well, though not as sweet as I would have liked. The second and third packets were used in afternoon and morning as I would use my aminos when cutting. Again they mixed well. I used a little more water. Taste is good, kind of like a hard candy. The final usage was as an intra-workout. I used about 24 oz of water for this mix. This much water gave it a light taste, a little more tart than I would like, but not bad Aminos are hard to rate for effectiveness in a short term trial, they are best used over time. Taste - 8/10 Mixability - 9/10 Effectiveness - 8/10 I would recommend these Aminos, though wish the flavor was a tad sweeter. The little bit of caffeine is a nice touch but was not enough to make a huge difference to one who is not very caffeine sensitive. If you are looking for an Amino product, give this a try.
