If you haven't been following our Vlog series, you might not know what we have in store.

If you would rather watch than read, watch our big episode below:

Otherwise, I wanted to share with you an announcement on our upcoming Peak Performance Nootropic Pre Workout, Catalyst!

About Catalyst

Si vis pacem, para bellum.

If you want peace, prepare for war.

THE PEAK PERFORMANCE PRE WORKOUT

Prepare for war with Catalyst, the peak performance nootropic pre-workout. Catalyst was proficiently forged to give you absolute energy, pristine mental focus, enhanced work capacity, and peak muscular endurance.

Peak Performance to us is mastery of the mind & body. Catalyst is destined to help you perform your best physically - and mentally.

Whether it's for smashing heavy weights or enduring many repetitions, Catalyst is there to help you reach a greater potential.

HOW CATALYST REFORGES YOU

Catalyst helps you prepare for battle by providing you energy, focus, and improved work capacity. This allows us to conquer workouts by reducing fatigue.

Our research-proven ingredients will have you prepare you for battle at the gym. Catalyst does this with a nootropic formula that enhances not only physical performance but mental performance as well.

We started with Caffeine and L-Theanine to increase brain power and acuity while reducing the anxiety effects of caffeine. Then we added the L-Citrulline & Beta-Alanine to improve work capacity and nitric oxide synthesis. Lastly, we added the nootropic Mucuna Pruriens, which carries L-DOPA, the precursor to dopamine for overall performance.

With Catalyst, you will not only experience the benefits during your workout. You will reach a greater potential afterward.

Components of Catalyst

The following are the components that make up Catalyst.

This is a teaser for what's to come... the exact dosages for each component will be revealed soon.

L-CITRULLINE

L-Citrulline is a Nitric Oxide Booster that improves blood flow and reduces fatigue. This allows us to enhance our exercise work capacity, thereby improving our performance in the gym.

We use citrulline in its most potent form so that you can maximize your results from your workouts.

BETA-ALANINE

Beta-Alanine is a building block of carnosine which aids in improving physical performance by means of muscular endurance.

Beta-Alanine also aids in lean body mass development by reducing fatigue, allowing you to make the best out of each workout.

CAFFEINE ANHYDROUS

Caffeine is used to improve focus, increase energy, and reduce levels of fatigue. We use Caffeine synergistically with our other ingredients so that we mitigate the negative effects of caffeine.

L-THEANINE

L-Theanine is a nootropic found in green tea that helps promote relaxation and calmness. When synergistically combined with caffeine, its anxiety-reducing properties allow you to optimize your performance. 

MUCUNA PRURIENS (L-DOPA)

Mucuna Pruriens, also known as Velvet Bean, is a nootropic that carries L-DOPA, the precursor to dopamine. L-DOPA has been shown to improve well-being and reduce cortisol, making it great for both mind & body performance.

Are You Ready For Battle?

To us, every time we step in the gym... we are in for a battle. Like a phoenix, this is a place where we go to die... only to be reborn.

We tear our muscles in there - then, we prepare to feast and rebuild our cells afterwards. We come back to do it again - bigger, stronger, and faster. This is exactly what we are about at Reforged.

With Catalyst, expect that we will not only assist you in your gym sessions... but help you ultimately reforge yourself.

Expect Catalyst to drop in December.

We are working on a quicker launch, so be on the lookout for updates on our personal Instagram page, and our emails.

Any questions or comments? Throw them below or email me at tony@reforgedperformance.com.

Until next time, Reforged Legion. We are excited to help you reach a greater potential!

7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed
7 Ways To Get Off The Couch & Exercise When You Are Depressed

by Tony Gjokaj September 17, 2021 5 min read

When you're depressed, even when you're not expending a lot of energy... you don't feel like you have any energy to spare to begin with.

It can be aggravating to hear that you need to work out to boost your endorphins, (or whatever your friends say to you).

In reality, they aren't wrong... but how can you exercise if you can't even get out of bed?

Is there something wrong with us?

Absolutely not. This happens with depression.

The thing with depression is that your whole body may feel like it is against you... and it's very frustrating.

I've been there.

But I was forced to work out once I committed to it because of an accountability partner I had.

In this post, we are going to go over some ways that may help you get off the couch when your mind & body are against you.

How Hydration Is Essential To Mental Health... And 4 Tips to Improve Hydration!

Hydration is paramount to your health and wellbeing.

When I worked my previous management job, I ran three rental car branches simultaneously at a time where one of the other managers was gone for over a month.

I would try to get my water in regularly, but the locations were incredibly busy. You would always find me at the front desk with customers swarming in.

This played a large part in my stress and I never knew it did until I found a way to actually get drink more water.

In this short post, we are going to go over why hydration is essential for mental health.

The Inactivity Trap: Where Depression and Physical Inactivity Collide
The Inactivity Trap: Where Depression and Physical Inactivity Collide

by Tony Gjokaj September 08, 2021 3 min read

When I was overweight, I was inactive, depressed, and had insomnia.

I would isolate myself from social interaction, which led me down a dark path where I contemplated suicide.

Eventually, fitness was my salvation, as physical activity led to me sleeping better, eating better, feeling better, and thinking better.

Prior to exercise, I was stuck in what was deemed an Inactivity Trap.

So in this post, we are going to go over an article that was written in 2009 with the same name, called "The Inactivity Trap". This article included studies that supported their claims from a psychological standpoint which intrigued me as well.

So let's dive into what the Inactivity Trap is.
