Why rugby players need a pre-workout

Simply put, rugby is a tough game that demands your 100% attention. Being lackadaisical and unfocused is the fastest way to get yourself injured. To perform at your peak, extend your cardio range and avoid injuries, you need to be mentally sharp and attentive throughout training and games.

So how do you do that?

As amateur players, we have many other concerns in our lives that can be distracting during training. You’ve had a tough week, you’re thinking about work stuff and you just can’t get focused. Sound familiar? We’ve been there. Pre-workout supplements like Ruck Science’s Twitch Faster can give you the clarity you need to put aside those distractions.


The new Twitch Faster formula contains no proprietary blends. That’s right, we’ve done away with secret formulas and made every ingredient in our pre-workout powder completely transparent. Why? Because, like you, we want to keep rugby clean while providing the absolute best pre-workout powder for rugby players. We’ve worked closely with the world’s best ruggers to create our formulas. Twitch Faster was inspired by:

Chris Baumann

International Tight Head Prop


If you’re not familiar with pre-workouts supplements, we highly recommend reading this section before using Twitch Faster. For amateur rugby players in particular, we suggest the following protocol:

Before Rugby Training

Our pre-workout formula is best taken with 500ml of water in a shaker about 15mins before rugby training. While some people can shoot it straight, without fluids at all, we don’t recommend this. You’ll need your fluid levels high for rugby training. 500ml is more than most shakers hold. That’s intentional. We want you to take on a tonne of fluids with your pre-workout.

Improving your skill set is a critical component of becoming a better rugby player. Unfortunately, its hard to do this if you’re all hyped up on sugar and caffeine. For rugby training, we suggest taking a half scoop of pre-workout only. Especially if your session is in the evening.

Before Rugby Games

This is where you can step-up your intake a bit. Rugby training doesn’t really proceed at 100% of your max energy output. But during games, you need all that and more. The ideal protocol is to have 1 heaped scoop about 10mins before kick-off time. This gives you enough to last the 80mins comfortably without giving you the jitters before you step on the pitch. You should also consider some sugar at half time.

Before Hitting the Gym

Again, thinking about injury prevention for a second, taking too much pre-workout isn’t what you’re looking for. To maximize your strength output in the weight room, our rugby pre-workout is going to help you for sure. But don’t go crazy. During daytime gym sessions use a full scoop OR at night use a half scoop. Nobody likes the dude in the corner screaming as he does his ORM dead lift.


We are committed to providing the cleanest supplements on the market. That’s why none of our new supplement formulas contain proprietary blends of any kind. Know your supplements and stacks and help Ruck Science to keep rugby clean

    Pre-Workout – Wow, its a great kick much more caffeine than i imagined. Its a great rush, and a perfect consistency from 16oz to 32 oz depending on the shot I want. One thing I am not a huge fan of, is the crash afterwards. Its about 30 minutes afterwards I will feel a hush crash. Not sure if that is due to the higher dose and its just the double edge sword of having such a burst of energy, but it would be my one negative.

    Twitch faster has everything I want in a pre-workout and nothing I don’t. I also like that it isn’t a “proprietary mix” so I actually know what I’m putting in my body. All that and it works really well for me too.

    Long lasting great taste

    Why did I get an email asking how I liked my “free” sample? I actually paid for this. And it did not work very well for me. I literally felt nothing different. Not too happy.

      Ana – a small error in the copy for our follow-up emails. Thanks for catching it for us. It’s been corrected.

      Would you like us to process a full refund?

    I read the instructions and description of this product before taking it from the Sample Stack I ordered. I usually drink the same amount of caffeine that is in Twitch Faster, so I was wondering what kind of affect the product would have on me. I took a half scoop before a match (I skipped the morning coffee that day) and Twitch Faster gave me the boost I needed for the match. I was able to better focus on other aspects of the game instead of monitoring how tired I was getting. It’s a fantastic product that didn’t leave me feeling sick or left me lethargic after it wore off. I didn’t feel a spike in energy followed by a hard crash; rather, it was a smooth and constant level of energy that kept me feeling good on the pitch. I’m about to get the full-sized product right now.

    Great product, used for one of 2 games so far and noticed the difference. Flavor wasn’t bad either.

    • Tim Howard

      Great to hear Jen! Please let us know if there are any other flavors you’d like to see.

    After having some local mailing issues this summer and not receiving the sample packets, Ruck Science was kind enough to hook me up with a whole container, which allowed me to share with my teammates! Great people and great product. Deff gives you that extra boost you need before a lift, practice or match!

    • Tim Howard

      Thanks a bunch Taylor – really happy to hear you’re stoked with the pre-workout. The new flavors are now available in all the stacks too.

    I really like the new formula guys. Happy to see it’s now a more natural color and flavor. The kick isn’t as strong but I think that’s a good tradeoff.

    When I take pre workout I often times feel tingling or even like I’m having some sort of cardiac episode. Not with Ruck Science. It is almost a focusing and calming supplement that centers me and let’s me relax and play the game.

    TF rocks, there’s no other way to put it. Recommending it to my whole team!

  11. 3 out of 5


    Really liked the product, but “lost” almost a third of it because it became clumpy and almost rock solid.

  12. 4 out of 5

    Martha Harris

    Really like it because it has a really strong kick that I need for workouts and games but doesn’t make me too hyper, lose my focus, or crash after I’m done. I got the tiger’s blood and its kind of a sharp flavor that surprised me at first but I’d still highly recommend.

    Omar McClendon

    Great tasting (Fruit Punch) and had the necessary ingredients for rugby training as well as use for a pre-game formula. Only issue I had was that it did not mix well.

  14. 4 out of 5

    Lorin Willett

    I first tried the old formula of the fruit punch via free sample packets. It mixed well, tasted like fruit punch, had a great initial boost, but a hard crash like others have mentioned. Still, I ordered a container of the new formula. The flavor is better and the crash is less severe but it does not mix as well – the new stuff is more powdery. I would recommend for your gym sessions and off-the-pitch training until you figure out how severely the crash will affect you, if at all. Great stuff and great way to support your local rugby club!

    Danny Phillips

    I thought that the pre-workout was pretty good. I have a high tolerance so I was two-scooping it. I wasn’t a huge fan of the fruit punch flavor. To me it has a very medicinal taste to it. Other than that I thought it was good. Had good kick, didn’t get all tingly, and felt it all the way through my workout.

    First time I’ve used a pre-workout, and man did it make a difference. Felt like I was working out asleep before and now I woke up .

    Caitlin Fones

    Tried this out. Tastes great and took me from exhausted to ready to go without any weird jitters or heart palpitations. Had a bit of a crash after, but no more than I would have expected. I’d definitely get it again.

    Good energy boost for those afternoon or early morning workouts

    Clarke Cayton

    This pre-workout packs a punch! I will typically use a full serving prior to strength training and love the incredible pump and stamina it gives me in the gym. If I am doing any high intensity training or cardio/fitness work I will cut the serving in half. I found that the stimulant would literally pound my heart through my chest if I consumed any more than that. This product is has the versatility to supplement both in-season and out-of-season, depending on your performance needs. Mixes well, priced right, tastes as good as anything on the market, and the kicker for me is the 10% back to my club!

  20. 5 out of 5


    The taste is great. It doesn’t get my heart pumping as hard as the other brand I’ve tried; the jury is still out as to whether this is a pro or con. Either way, I did notice an increase in energy and mood.

  21. 5 out of 5


    I work out in the morning so this has replaced that morning cup of coffee I usually drank. It gives me the needed energy to push through a hard workout without needing to eat a heavy breakfast. It tastes like kool-aid which is awesome, but I do with they would get rid of the food coloring since it adds nothing to it’s usefulness.

    “I’ve spent the last 4 years or so bouncing around from preworkout to preworkout trying to find something that wouldn’t leave me feeling sick during matches or particularly intense training sessions. I recently stumbled upon Twitch Faster and decided to give it a try. I’ve played around with both a half scoop (5g) and a full scoop (10g) for various things and this is what I found:

    At 5’10″” and 210lbs, the half scoop was more than enough for almost all training sessions in the gym. I did like the full scoop for particularly hard leg days. All cardio and field sessions were done with the half scoop with no ill effects. I personally never noticed much of a crash either way and didn’t feel jittery as I have with some preworkouts. It was a nice smooth ride of energy from beginning to end. I can’t recommend this product more to those looking for something built specifically for rugby players. “

    Todd Jarvis

    I ordered the sampler stack and have loved the products. I use this one the first time the other day before a workout session. I was really dragging and dreading hitting the gym. This really picked me up and gave me the boost I needed to get through the workout. It tastes great and smooth as well. A lot of preworkout supplements I’ve used were really hard and tangy/sugary–this is not.

  24. 5 out of 5


    I have a caffeine sensitivity. I got this as part of the sampler stacker. The product DOES work though, and they do warn you against using it if you have a caffeine sensitivity. I was able to take half doses and still be able to function, yet be pumped enough to work out without negative reactions. If I wasn’t sensitive to caffeine I would love this product.

    So let me reiterate to those with a caffeine sensitivity issue: use at your own risk.

    Just like the title says, this is the best stuff out there. I have had such great energy and results when I have taken this product. The instructions are right on the container telling you how much to use and how much water to use, which is extremely helpful. Also the flavor is great, goes down really smooth and flavorful. Taking the scoop 30 min before has been what works for me, you can really feel when it is working cause it gives you a great energy boost. During the work out I can tell a huge difference when I take it. I lift harder and don’t get fatigued as fast. Its truly an amazing product and I would recommend this to anyone! I love this product and will definitely keep using it.

    Jason Ricci

    I’ve tried just about every pre-workout on the market, and I was pleasantly surprised with this one. It is far cheaper than a lot of the more potent ones you can find, but I was very happy with how this one made me feel, both during and after my gym sessions. Combine that with the fact that my club gets some of the money from my purchase, I think this will be my new go-to preworkout.

  27. 5 out of 5


    I’ve been through the gamut as far as preworkouts. All the big names have at one time or another given me the jitters and the… BM’s of the century. This one was a nice compromise of just intense enough to keep me going, and not so intense that I thought I was going to launch into the next zip code. And for the price, you can’t beat it unlike the big names.

  28. 5 out of 5

    Cory Barger

    This product taste great and dissolves quickly. One of the things I liked about this product is the energy that came with taking it without the actual twitching or “heart palpitations” i experienced with other products. Would definitely recommend!

  29. 5 out of 5


    I have used a few different preworkouts and this one is by far the best. Gives me energy and stamina without the shaky feel of caffeine

  30. 5 out of 5

    Mac May

    “Taste is actually great. I mix it in slightly less water than it recommends which makes it a bit more concentrated and sweeter, but sweet isn’t your thing you can just use more water. Dissolves clean, and rinses clean when you’re done.

    The instructions caution you to use a half dose your first time. I am a big fella, and I don’t even notice advil if I don’t take six, so I ignored that and took the whole dose. Do not do this thing. They warn you for a reason. After a time or two, I don’t know if my body adjusted or what, but now everything is fine. However, speaking as someone who always has to take more than the average person to affect my giant self, just go slow the first time or two.”

    Would reccomend to all rugby players! Taste is just as good as any other product. Also does not give you the jitters like other pre workouts do.

  32. 5 out of 5

    Zack Stryffeler

    By far one of my favorite pre-workout/training/match supplements. Taste is great and i feel more focused and less anxious than I did with other pre-activity supplements. Would recommend this product to any athlete interested in a great supplement.

  33. 5 out of 5


    The taste is very good, but what’s most notable is the effect it’s had on my body before training and workouts. It doesn’t give me the intense jitter and “buzz” that other pre-workouts have, but definitely leaves me feeling energized!

  34. 5 out of 5


    This stuff is great! I’ve used many other pre workouts on the market and I liked this one best. It didn’t make me feel jittery or over hyped up. The taste is good and it dissolves nicely with a shaker bottle.

  35. 5 out of 5


    This product is good! It dissolves quickly and provides energy without making me shaky like other preworkouts have. Definitely recommended

  36. 5 out of 5

    Will Nolan

    Took this pre workout right before practice and felt energized and ready the whole 3 hour practice, definitely found my new ritual.

  37. 3 out of 5


    Personally, I do not use pre-workout that often. However, when I do I only take half the serving size since the caffeine content is quite high compared to other pre-workout supplements on the market.

    First off, I really enjoy the flavor. When mixed, it does not taste too sweet and if it does you can always water it down. However, the powder does not mix well initially. So you’ll need to give it a good shake and some time dissolve.
