WHAT IS SHOTGUN 5X?
SHOTGUN 5X is the first VPX muscle building supplement to use a superior synergistic blend of effective compounds combined with a cutting-edge delivery system that promotes mind blowing, skin bursting effects, while additionally supporting recovery and protein synthesis. Compounds such as Creatine, Beta-Alanine, and Branch Chain Amino Acids are each combined with Ethyl Ester technology to promote maximum absorption and uptake!
The Ethyl Ester Compounds used in SHOTGUN 5X help these potent muscle building ingredients enter the bloodstream nearly 100% intact, as opposed to the same ingredients without Ethyl Ester technology that might only be absorbed at 15% to 40%. This highly advanced Ethyl Ester technology shuttles these SHOTGUN 5X compounds across the muscle cell membrane where they can help promote muscle growth! VPX highly recommends stacking pre-workout SHOTGUN 5X with post-workout SYNTHESIZE.
Contains REDLINE’S powerful fat burning support and energy technology for mind blowing intensity!
GBB and MTB Pump (Magnesium Tanshinoate B) for Nitric Oxide induced skin splitting pumps. With BCAA's & Fractionated Protein Peptides to support maximal muscle protein synthesis and nitrogen retention - two important markers of muscle growth! Fueled by Research surmised PeptoPro and BPOV to promote insulin secretion and insulin receptor site sensitivity. Insulin is the most anabolic of all hormones! No carbs, waxy maize starch or sugars needed.
With COP (Creatinol-O-Phosphate) to promote anaerobic glycolysis and CPT (di-Na Creatine PhosphateTetrahydrate) -- two designer creatines surmised in VPX labs to be resistant to conversion to creatinine. This eliminates bloating and supports transport of intact COP and CPT into muscle tissue!
Beta-Alanine is a hyper-performance ingredient used to increase whole body creatine retention to crank out more sets and more muscle-blasting reps for increased lean mass! Satellite Cell Activators to promote new Muscle Cell Division! This means larger existing muscle fibers and splitting of these fibers to create totally new muscle.
SHOTGUN 5X fuels episodes of physical intensity to induce insane muscle pumps that can lead to muscle growth. The biochemical and physiological response to SHOTGUN 5X when combined with intense resistance training may cause extra trauma to occur to trained muscle. Greater resistance to muscle results in significantly increased internal pressure (the pump)...And as you know, the better the pump the greater the trauma caused to muscle-tissue. The end result: increased ability to build larger muscle!
So how did the Increases in Muscle Gene Proteins, Muscle DNA and Myogenic Regulatory Factors translate into real world bodybuilding results with SHOTGUN 5X?
Lean Mass - 181.1% greater gains!
Bench Press Strength - promote greater gains!
Leg Press Strength - 53.5% greater gains!
Myofibrillar Protein - 167.2% greater gains!
Total Muscle DNA - support greater gains!
Myogenic Regulatory Factors - greater increase (Myo-D)!
Researchers at a prestigious university performed the complicated task of unraveling the secrets of SHOTGUN 5X. In science lingo, they sought out to determine the effects of four weeks of heavy resistance exercise combined with the oral ingestion of SHOTGUN 5X supplementation on body composition, muscle strength and mass, and markers of satellite cell activation.* If you paid attention in biology class, satellite cells are cells that sit on the periphery of muscle cells; when you damage or exercise your muscles it activates these cells; and that my friends, is a good thing. Why? Because satellite cells make existing muscle fibers BIGGER and in some extreme cases, may even contribute to making new muscle fibers. Imagine that. Larger muscle fibers as well as the potential to make mind-blowing gains in muscle fiber number too!
These scientists measured body composition (how much muscle and fat the subjects had), muscle strength, muscle mass, myofibrillar protein content and markers of satellite cell activation [serum IGF-1 (IGF-1), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), c-met tyrosine kinase (c-met)], proliferation (Myo-D, myf-5), and differentiation (myogenin, MRF-4, total DNA content).
Study volunteers consumed 21 grams/day of placebo [PL] or 21 grams/day of SHOTGUN 5X. For both the SHOTGUN 5X and placebo the dosage was ingested 30 minutes prior to each exercise session to take advantage of nutrient timing to maximize the benefits of SHOTGUN 5X.
On days where no exercise occurred, the full dosage of each supplement was ingested in the morning upon waking. Participants lifted weights 4-days per week split into two upper and two lower body workouts per week for a total of four weeks. The human test subjects performed a bi-weekly upper body resistance-training program consisting of nine exercises including bench press, lat pull down, shoulder press, seated rows, shoulder shrugs, chest flies, biceps curl, triceps press down, and abdominal curls twice per week. Test subjects also performed a bi-weekly lower-body program consisting of seven exercises including leg press or squat, back extension, step ups, leg curls, leg extension, calf raises, and abdominal crunches. Participants performed 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions with 75%-80% of their 1-RM (rep max) on each exercise. Rest periods between exercises and sets lasted no longer than three minutes.

Oldie But GoodieWith all of the new preworkouts on the market now, I still can count on vpx Shotgun for the endurance, strength and thermogenisis i’m looking for in a workout when preparing for summer... some new ones are all hype. Shotgun 5x is an “oldie but goodie.”
Pumps In The DesertWhen I was in Iraq I used to take this pre workout. It got me jacked. I never thought I could put on so much size and mass, but with stuff I was repping put like crazy. Anyways I take it now, and its defiantly got me back on track.
