4. Knockout 2.0 – Effects Proven by Research!
Knockout 2.0 is one of few preparations for athletes whose properties are supported by scientific evidence. Olimp’s experts decided to check the real impact of this pre-workout supplement on selected motor skills and nervous system stimulation.
The study was carried out on 23 men with advanced workout experience, who were given a serving of Knockout 2.0 (study group) or a placebo (control group) using double-blinded methodology. The research hypothesis was that using Knockout 2.0 would lead to improved muscle strength and anaerobic capacity. The analysis was based on three successive stages.
- Lower limb strength test (knee-joint flexure and extension)
- 3RM test (the performance of a maximum of 3 barbell-press repetitions while lying down)
- Wingate test (cyclo-ergometer training at the highest intensity for 30 seconds, with a load of 7.5% of body weight)
The results obtained during the study conducted at Olimp’s exercise laboratory at were as follows.
Lower-limb strength Flexure/Extension
Lower-limb strength Flexure/Extension
Maximum Power Time
~ 110 kg
~ 118 kg
The values in the above table show quite clearly that using Knockout 2.0 to support workout leads to real effects. If you want to learn more, go to the “RESEARCH” tab, where the results of this study are discussed in detail.
