Outlift Amped, Simplified

Outlift Amped is a pre-workout supplement by Nutrex.

It claims to use clinically effective doses of each ingredient, which they do for the most part.

A couple of ingredients were dosed a little low according to limited research, and could perhaps be dosed a little higher to err on the side of caution.

Stimulants

  • 3.5 cups of coffee’s worth of caffeine per scoop
  • Theacrine – Similar to caffeine, but the body doesn’t build tolerance to it (good dose)

Two types of caffeine are included in the formula; caffeine anhydrous (normal caffeine), and caffeine citrate, which is faster-releasing.

Theacrine is also very similar to caffeine, but your body won’t build a tolerance to it – meaning its effects don’t get weaker each time you take it.

Mood/Focus

  • Caffeine – Improves alertness and motivation (great dose)
  • Theacrine – improves alertness and motivation (good dose)
  • L-Tyrosine – Improves mood and focus (poor dose)
  • Choline Bitartrate – May increase focus and cognition (poor source of choline)

Outlift Amped has plenty of stimulants to get you going, the other mood and focus ingredients however are either not dosed high enough (tyrosine), or not in the best form (choline bitartrate).

Performance

  • Citrulline Malate – Improves endurance via Nitric Oxide production (optimal dose)
  • Betaine – Improves power output and endurance (optimal dose)
  • Beta Alanine – Improves endurance by delaying fatigue (great dose)
  • Caffeine – Can increase power output and endurance at dose provided (great dose)
  • Magnesium Creatine Chelate – Increases power output and endurance via increased ATP energy (good dose)

Overall, Outlift Amped does well for performance.

A nice range of performance-boosting ingredients are included, covering all bases for strength and endurance improvement.

Like other creatine variations, the magnesium creatine chelate version that’s used here is claimed to be absorbed better than other forms (and therefore require a lower dose). this could be a possibility, but we haven’t seen enough research to support the claims yet.

The beta-alanine dose is adequate for some effects, but could be a little higher to match the more common clinical dose.

Pumps

  • Citrulline Malate – Increases pumps via nitric oxide production (optimal dose)
  • Creatine – Can increase cell volume (good dose)
  • Taurine – May increase cell volume (good dose)

Pumps should be decent, with a huge dose of citrulline malate, as well as cell-volume enhancers.

Extras

  • Piperine – May increase the absorption of the other ingredients
  • Magnesium – Good for muscular function and sleep

They also include a little funnel-scoop for convenience!

Outlift Amped gets half a bonus point for extras.

Conclusion

Outlift Amped does a great job across 3 out of the 4 main categories, scoring off the charts for performance.

It could have performed better for mood and focus by including better doses and forms of those ingredients.
