5% Rich Piana
The 5150® Legendary Series delivers a supercharged punch with over 400mg of Caffeine per serving, plus the revolutionary energy and nootropic Cocoabuterol®
What is the meaning of 5150®?
Rich Piana originally went with the name “5150®” for this ultra-high stimulant pre-workout because he wanted to convey that this pre-workout was not for the ordinary, but for only the serious stim junkies among us. And while Rich wasn’t insinuating that taking a few scoops of 5150® pre-workout would result in a 72-hour “involuntary psychiatric hold”, he wanted to convey that this product meant business!
Have you grown bored of other pre-workouts, having ‘tried them all’ before getting this point?
Do the results you seek lay beyond the normal conditions of training?
Do you need to focus and energize your workout while hydrating your muscles and keeping your body anabolic?
If yes, then you may have met the qualifications to start training like a true 5%ER; to enter the territory where only a few thrive: mass monster territory. If you routinely seek the pain of a long training session and routinely need to be spotted by at least two smaller freaks of the gym, then we’d like to welcome you to 5150® Legendary Series High-Stim Pre-Workout.
Crea-TEN® Legendary Series features a variety of flavors! If you thought it tasted good before, wait until you try it now. This formula includes the 10 most effective forms of Creatine available. Plus, this powerful ingredient lineup features a Creatine Accelerate Blend for increasing absorption and adding to cell volume for huge muscle pumps. It also stimulates muscle growth, extends endurance, and enhances strength. To cap it all off, there’s no loading required and you only have to take it once per day!
It’s no wonder Creatine is usually one of the first supplements a bodybuilder or athlete tries. In fact, it’s a cornerstone ingredient for our industry. All types of athletes and bodybuilders will find value in adding Crea-TEN® to their supplement arsenal.
Benefits of Creatine
It helps to increase the muscle’s stores of phosphocreatine, a component of the ATP energy system. That means more energy for extended endurance and time training.
Creatine also supports hydration and water-based pumps by pulling water into the muscle’s cells causing them to swell. Additionally, Creatine improves strength and supports muscle growth.(1,2,3,4,5)
Creatine vs. Crea-TEN®
Creatine Monohydrate falls a bit short when it comes to absorption; enter Crea-TEN®. This outstanding product helps to improve absorption by channeling the effectiveness found in 10 different forms of Creatine. This creates an advanced blend that uses the more absorbable forms of Creatine.
Our innovative Creatine Accelerate Blend is the added element to ensure your muscles get the most out of our Creatine Blend. After all, it doesn’t matter how effective a supplement is if your body can’t absorb it.
CREATINE BLEND – 5,000MG
Crea-TEN® Legendary Series is loaded with 10 of the most effective and well-absorbed versions of Creatine. Here’s what’s in this powerful formula:
Creatine Anhydrous – When you see the word “anhydrous” you might think of caffeine. After all, caffeine anhydrous is the most popular form of caffeine used in supplements. It works the same way with Creatine. Here, it’s a version of Creatine Monohydrate that has all the moisture removed. This creates a Creatine that’s more concentrated, and therefore more effective.
Tri-Creatine Malate – Here’s a combination of Creatine and Malic Acid. This plays a role in the metabolism of ATP for energy. This version of Creatine has all the benefits of monohydrate, plus it significantly increases endurance.
Creatine Monohydrate – Here’s the Creatine that started it all back in the early ’90s. It caused quite a revolution in the industry! Creatine Monohydrate is the most tested and proven form of Creatine available, bar none. That means it had to be in Crea-TEN® Legendary Series! To improve the absorption of this classic, this patented version uses micronized particles. These smaller particles are much easier for the body to absorb.
Tri-Creatine Citrate – Like Creatine Citrate, this is Creatine attached to citric acid. In this case, there are three creatine molecules. This combination improves absorption, and as noted below, is involved in the Krebs, or Citric Acid, Cycle of energy.
Creatine Citrate – This version combines Creatine and Citric Acid. As noted, this is a component of the Krebs Cycle. Also called the Citric Acid Cycle, this is an energy system that converts food into usable energy for the body. It’s tied into the ATP system of energy.(6)
Creatine Pyruvate – We’ve already seen that Crea-TEN® Legendary Series uses forms of Creatine that are directly involved in endurance. While Creatine is a cell volumizer, it’s also important for endurance. The more reps you can get, the better, right? Also, absorption is King in Crea-TEN® Legendary Series. That’s why this is such an effective product.
Creatine Ethyl Ester Hydrochloride – Here’s an early competitor of monohydrate. This form of Creatine was the first to target the absorption problems of the original Creatine. Since then, it’s still a popular alternative to Creatine Monohydrate. It helps transport Creatine directly into the bloodstream.
Creatine AKG – This is a version that attaches Creatine to an Alpha-Ketoglutarate molecule. This is another form that enhances training endurance.
Creatine Gluconate – Let’s travel back in time to when Creatine was a new supplement. Back then, it was recommended you take it with a simple sugar such as fruit juice. This enhanced absorption. With that in mind, here’s a version that targets fast absorption by attaching Creatine to glucose.
Creatine Phosphate – This is another version that deals directly with the ATP energy system. This also acts as an acid buffer. That means Crea-TEN® increases endurance in two ways.
CREATINE ACCELERATE BLEND – 1,580 MG
There’s no doubt that this Blend sets Crea-TEN® Legendary Series apart from the crowd. It consists of Taurine, Betaine, Gymnema Sylvestre, Banaba, and Fenugreek. To top it all off, there’s also Bioperine® Black Pepper. The entire Blend improves absorption and utilization of the ingredients.
Taurine – If you’re looking at the idea of cell volume, Creatine should be the first nutrient you think of. That’s because it created the term. What does cell volume mean? Simply, it means that water is pulled into the muscles. This causes them to swell in size. It’s also known as water-based pumps, and yes, there are cell volumizers in your favorite pump product. One ingredient often paired with Creatine to enhance this is taurine. Of course, we included it in Crea-TEN® Legendary Series. There’s nothing like a great pump, right?
Betaine Anhydrous – This is an ingredient that’s become common in many pre-workouts and Creatine formulas. It appears to work well with Creatine. One reason is, like taurine and Creatine, betaine also pulls water into the muscles. In addition, it’s believed to increase strength and power.
Gymnema Sylvestre Extract – This is a herb that’s often in Glucose Disposal Agents. One thing it does is maintain even levels of blood sugar. Also, Gymnema helps drive carbs into your muscle cells. Carbs pull in water for more muscle cell volume. As you can see, Crea-TEN® Legendary Series supercharges cell volume and endurance, two of the primary effects of Creatine.(7)
Banaba Powder – Here’s another herb that enhances glucose delivery to your muscles. We mentioned two primary effects above. One of the keys to these benefits is absorption, and that’s what the Accelerate Blend is all about.
Fenugreek Seed Extract – You will usually find fenugreek in testosterone boosters. We’re using it here because it can reduce blood glucose levels. This means you’ll avoid unwanted insulin spikes
BioPerine® Black Pepper – This is a popular and patented form of Black Pepper. It’s used in quite a few supplements to improve nutrient absorption

DIM 300 mg – Also known as Diindolylmethane, this ingredient is one of the components that make up Indole-3-Carbinol and originates in such vegetables as broccoli, kale, and cauliflower.
It is a regulator of estrogen metabolism in the way it helps keep estrogen levels in balance. It does this by preventing the conversion of testosterone into estrogen.(3) DIM works synergistically with Brassaiopsis to keep the estrogen under control.
Stinging Nettle 300 mg – Also known as Urtica Dioica, this plant has a long history of traditional medicinal use. Stinging Nettle contains the active ingredient 3,4-Divanillyltetrahydrofuran, which is a lignan that has been suggested to increase levels of free, or usable, testosterone, which is the amount of testosterone the body allows to be used for muscle growth.(4)
Longjack 300 mg – Research shows that Longjack is mainly an adaptogen, which means it helps the body deal with stress. Longjack helps to balance the cortisol/testosterone ratio, which is very important to maintaining an anabolic environment post-cycle.(5) Longjack works synergistically with many of the other ingredients in Post Gear®, such as DAA, Zinc, Magnesium, and Vitamin D to get your test levels back to full speed.
Milk Thistle 200 mg – One of the most popular herbs on the market, this herb supports liver health. In fact, Milk Thistle has been used for centuries as a general tonic for overall liver function.
Acacetin 50 mg – This ingredient originates from Damiana and is thought to inhibit aromatase, which is an essential part of estrogen synthesis. Acacetin works synergistically with Brassaiopsis and DIM to keep estrogen levels under control.
Artichoke 50 mg – Artichoke has a wide range of benefits, we’ve included it in Post Gear® to work synergistically with Milk Thistle to support normal liver health and function.
Vitamin D 125 mcg – Vitamin D has been shown in recent years to have quite a few important benefits, one of which is the ability to support increased testosterone production.(6)
Zinc 30 mg, Magnesium 70 mg, Vitamin B6 10.5 mg – More commonly known as ZMA, this combination of Zinc, Magnesium, and B6 has been shown to promote increases in testosterone. The primary study that backs this up was conducted in 2000 using NCAA football players as test subjects. In this 7 week study, researchers gave ZMA supplements to test subjects who were working out twice a day. At the end of the study, researchers found a significant increase in the test subjects’ levels of testosterone
Rich Piana 5% Nutrition Bigger By The Day supplement supporting the building of muscle mass developed to increase protein synthesis and improve regeneration. Laxogenin at a dose of 300 mg has the ability to increase protein synthesis and provides the strength and endurance necessary to perform intensive training sessions. In addition, it reduces the feeling of hunger, which allows you to reduce calorie intake during the day. Green tea extract contains contributes to muscle growth, stimulates nitric oxide production, increasing muscle pump. The supplement inhibits myostatin, enabling unlimited muscle growth and development. Black pepper extract increases the thermogenesis of the body, accelerating the loss of body fat, exposing the muscular figure.
Alpha Hydroxyisocaproic Acid HICA – alpha-hydroxyisocaproic acid or leucic acid, HICA is a metabolite of leucine, which works in conjunction with other active amino acids, stimulates muscle growth and accelerates recovery.
Laxosterone – a patented extract derived from the root of Smilax scobinicaulis (5-alpha-hydroxy-laksogenin). Delivered to the human body, it has anabolic androgenic effects. It exhibits anti-catabolic properties by lowering cortisol levels. Thus, it supports the synthesis of muscle tissue proteins and its subsequent protection against degradation. Probably mainly due to interference with thyroid activity, it supports fat loss. In addition, it has a strong anti-inflammatory effect.
L-Leucine – affects skeletal muscle synthesis in several ways: increases insulin secretion, a powerful anabolic present in our body, affects the activity of S6 protein kinase, accelerates phosphorylation of eIf4E binding protein and affects the degree of binding between proteins (eIF) 4E and eIF4G. All this, despite the complicated sound and naming, boils down to a very simple theorem – Leucine increases the degree and speed of using proteins to build muscle.
Green Tea Extract – owes its slimming properties to catechins, namely a substance called epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG). Catechins contained in green tea extract have a significant impact on fat reduction. They inhibit the absorption of fats from food and increase their consumption by the body. In addition, green tea increases the activity of some enzymes responsible for the digestive process, has a positive effect on liver metabolism, increases thermogenesis and accelerates fat oxidation.
Black Pepper Extract – the active ingredient in black pepper, has a thermogenic effect. It can increase the blood supply to digestive tissues, resulting in better absorption of food ingredients. It significantly improves the absorption of many active ingredients of supplements.
Vitamin A – a key vitamin when it comes to the health of our skin, hair and nails. That is why it is often an invaluable ingredient in skin and hair supplements. The use of vitamins is particularly important for dry and acne prone skin. It helps the skin to maintain an adequate level of hydration, making the skin more elastic and soft. It also helps in the fight against signs of aging such as wrinkles. It is helpful in reducing stretch marks or signs of peeling.
Calcium – is a basic mineral component, affecting, among others, maintaining the electrolyte balance of the body necessary for its proper functioning. It is an important component of bone tissue and is necessary for its proper development, as well as for the processes of smooth functioning of nerves, muscles and the heart.
