Xwerks Motion - A synergistic blend of cluster dextrin carbohydrates, BCAA's and electrolytes created with 4x CrossFit Games athlete Noah Ohlsen.
"This year brought with it a lot of changes. One of the biggest from a nutritional perspective was adding more CARBS. Luckily, carbs are delicious and Motion is no exception! An additional 200g of carbs per day was daunting but Motion made it easy and more importantly, made me better. It helped me recover and refuel between multiple training sessions and even gave me the extra energy I needed to perform at this year's CrossFit Games. Motion was made for athletes like me and you, who need a quick, easy and tasty way to stay fueled throughout long days. Whether we're training or not. One scoop for a quick snack on a rest day or pile up 4 big scoops between intense sessions at the gym." - Noah Ohlsen
Not all carbs are created equal.
Carbohydrates are your bodies main source of energy and critical in athletic performance and recovery.
Cluster Dextrin, also known as Highly Branched Cyclic Dextrin (HBCD), is a new breed of carbohydrate created in Japan.
Clinical trials have shown that Cluster Dextrin can increase time to exhaustion and decrease stress hormone response from exercise - allowing you to perform better and recover quicker than ever before.
Cluster Dextrin has a high molecular weight, is very soluble and an osmotic pressure near zero. What does that mean? Cluster Dextrin is easily mixed, digested (no bloating) and passes through your stomach rapidly - replenishing energy levels faster than any other carb source, including, maltodextrin, dextrose and waxy maize.
Adding Cluster Dextrin to your training regime has the following benefits and more:
- Promote recovery: Carbs can help with recovery after intense exercise
- Provide fuel: Carbs are critical to fueling your body during high intensity exercise
- Improve neural drive: Carbs also improve neural drive (nervous system), resistance to fatigue and mental focus

Branch Chain Amino Acid's (BCAA's) refers to three amino acids; leucine, isoleucine and valine. These are essential amino acids, meaning they can not be produced by your body and must be ingested.
Supplementing with BCAA's can help promote muscle growth and decrease fatigue during training. Each amino acid found in BCAA's has its own benefits as well:
- Leucine is known for its main benefit of building muscle. Leucine activates a protein called mTOR which induces muscle protein protein synthesis.
- Isoleucine significantly increases glucose uptake during exercise, this is a powerful combination when combined with carbohydrates.
- Valine helps prevent muscle breakdown and supporting the nervous system and cognitive function.
Motion has a BCAA ratio of 2:1:1 (leucine:isoleucine:valine) which has been shown to be most effective in increasing performance benefits.
Adequate function of cardiac, digestive, nervous and muscular systems rely on a proper balance of electrolytes. When an athlete sweats, electrolytes start depleating.
Introducing electrolytes back into your body prevents dehydration and helps prevent cramping and other negative effects of electrolyte levels becoming to low. Motion contains calcium, magnesium and sodium to help replenish electrolytes and prevent dehydration.
Athletes have been told for decades that lactic acid is the enemy. Modern science has shown that is the complete opposite of the truth, lactic acid is not a waste product as a result of exercise, it is fuel for muscles. Lactate (lactic acid) is now recognized as a key fuel source for your muscles during strenuous exercise.
When you exercise muscles start to produce more lactate than they can consume. This process continues until the lactate levels rise in your blood to a level that signals your muscles to stop producing it. This can quickly throw off the pH in your muscles (acidosis), causing the burning sensation we all know.
By supplementing with lactate, you switch your body from lactate production to lactate consumption - as well as provide additional fuel for your muscles.
By already having lactate in your blood, your muscles already have the fuel they need. The burning sensation is greatly reduced, even eliminated, by significantly balancing pH as this study shows. Work capacity increases through the roof, for example, this study showed a 17% increase in time to exhaustion when supplementing with lactate. Learn more about supplementing with lactate here.
Both Motion and Ignite contain Lactate as a powerful ingredient.
