In line with the introduction of their new range of Protein Optimisers, Musashi have also reformulated their pre and intra workouts supplements: Re-Activate and Elevator respectively. Both have followed in a similar vein in respect of their carbohydrate content; losing most of their carbs in line with the trend nowadays for these type of supplements.

Re-Activate still comes with a good dose of aminos, but the major changes see the addition of beta-alanine and caffeine. As arguably two of the most proven ergogenic nutrients, its hard to criticise Musashi on the formula change, but when adding caffeine, there's always the risk that you allienate some of the 'caffeine intolerant' individuals. Musashi will market Re-Activate as a low-carb pre workout and have also reworked the flavour, with it now coming in blackcurrent buzz and orange explosion.

As for Elevator, on the amino acid front, it will consist of a 4:1:1 mix of BCAAs together with added glutamine and taurine. Elevator will also come with added caffeine and a mix of electrolytes in the form of magnesium, potassium and sodium chloride. This all shapes as a pretty solid looking formula, but its hard to say that it's ground breaking in any sense. However, it's important to note that Musashi are probably not aiming at your super savvy supplement user with this product, but rather the broader market. Being a well-known Australian name in sports nutrition, Musashi know that they can get their products online, into most gyms, supplement stores and pharmacies and then let their brand and reputation do the rest. Elevator will be sold in a 390g tub, with each dosing being 15g and will come in three flavours, namely, grape, lemon-lime and green apple.

It will be interesting to see how these new products from Musashi fair, as the pre/intra workout market is one of the toughest and most competitive markets within the sports nutrition industry. As a side note, its worth mentioning that Musashi have gone to the trouble of getting AUSTL numbers for both supplements. With Musashi being the only Australian sports nutrition company to list these type of products with the TGA, they are in a position to make appropriate and approved therapeutic claims without the risk of breaking any regulatory guidelines.
