Twitch streamer AngelsKimi wasn’t too impressed by the ingredients found in fellow broadcaster Tyler1’s pre-workout supplement mix, thanks to the humorous name of one amino acid.

While 24-year-old Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp is best known for his hilarious broadcasts and League of Legends content, he’s also no slouch when it comes to fitness, as evidenced by his muscular physique.

Thus, Tyler1 boasts a pre workout mix for sale on his online store, alongside other merchandise like hoodies, tank tops, and joggers.

On January 2, variety streamer AngelsKimi decided to give T1’s shop a quick once-over when she discovered his watermelon flavored “Bloodrush” supplement — which, of course, features art of the streamer going full-on Super Saiyan on the label.

“Supplements?” Kimi said upon discovering the tab in his store. “Oh, frik yeah. This is what I need!”

angelskimi, InstagramVariety Twitch streamer AngelsKimi took a look at Tyler1’s store and found a humorous ingredient in Tyler1’s pre workout mix.

However, the name of one ingredient in the mix gave her pause: Beta Alanine, an amino acid common in many pre workout mixes, which is produced naturally and aids in muscle endurance for high-intensity exercises.

It wasn’t the function of the acid that made her question the streamer, but rather the name “beta,” a humorous jab used toward males seen as “inferior” to their “alpha” counterparts.

“Woah, woah, woah,” Kimi interrupted, jokingly scoffing. “It says that one of the ingredients is ‘beta.’ Beta Alanine? I don’t know if I trust this anymore. Why would Tyler1’s third main ingredient be be ‘beta?’”

In spite of her good-natured roast, Kimi later joked that she wanted to get an “entire Tyler1 outfit” from his store, which supports a surprising array of wearable merchandise for fans to showcase their enthusiasm.

However, T1 himself hasn’t been wearing “normal” clothing as of late, thanks to his hilarious “Candy Cane Miss Fortune” cosplay, adding yet another layer of humor to his already ridiculous repertoire.

For those looking for “ATP endurance,” Tyler1’s “Bloodrush” pre workout is available at a $43.99 price point — but there’s no guarantee it will give you a massive Twitch following.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
