BIG IMPACT: THE NEW GOLD STANDARD FOR PRE-WORKOUTS
Are you looking to take your workouts to the next level? Did you realize that your pre-workout could be what’s holding you back?
There are tons of pre-workouts on the market with a dizzying array of “proprietary blends”, but not all are created equal, and what you choose to fuel your body with could mean the difference between hitting that next PR and hitting the wall. ALLMAX Nutrition has you covered and has put together a combination of ingredients that will not only keep you pushing hard during your workout but will have you recovering faster than ever so you can get back to the weights sooner.
Recover faster so you can hit the weights sooner!
IMPACT Igniter pre-workout contains a blend of ingredients that have been scientifically proven to maximize your potential. In this article we will discuss the top ingredients in detail and why your training will never be the same when you add them to your regimen.
One of the key ingredients in the new IMPACT Igniter pre-workout is citrulline malate, which has been shown to increase endurance, decrease fatigue, and enhance recovery. By increasing the amount of oxidative ATP synthesis contribution to energy production by over 30% during exercise, citrulline will keep you pushing hard even through those last sets, with even more power. This increased ATP synthesis is positively correlated with increased set numbers, with over 55% more reps recorded in studies.
Not only does citrulline keep you stronger during your workout, it is also associated with enhanced recovery with a demonstrated 20% increase in phosphocreatine recovery after strength training. This ensures that you can get back in the gym faster and maximize your gains.
Beta alanine is well known in the pre-workout world and no blend would be complete without it. It is vital in increasing your muscular endurance, strength, and power with studies demonstrating that after four weeks of beta alanine supplementation muscular endurance was significantly improved during training. Additionally, research suggests that a training regimen including beta alanine supplementation for eight weeks can stimulate more lean mass accrual in athletes. So if you’re looking to increase muscle mass rapidly and break through plateaus, this is the edge you’ve been looking for.
Everyone dreads delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) after a heavy training day. L-carnitine has been shown to decrease lactate buildup by more than 40% which in turn means that muscle soreness will be decreased. Aside from its benefits for recovery, L-carnitine has been demonstrated to increase the use of fat as fuel with study participants showing an over 50% reduction in glycogen usage during training.
This means that you are literally incinerating fat as you train. Oxygen uptake and power output are significantly increased in athletes supplementing with L-carnitine and it was shown to increase work capacity by over 30%. As if increased strength, fat utilization, and recovery weren’t enough, L-carnitine has also been correlated with improvement in cognition and motivation, so when you’re training hard and pushing yourself to the limit it will give you the mental stamina to keep pushing.

TAURINE & N-ACETYL CYSTEINE (NAC)
A great pre-workout will have you leaving the gym looking like Popeye after a massive can of spinach. That pump is what delivers vital oxygen and nutrients to the muscle bellies while clearing away all the metabolic waste products, namely lactic acid. By including taurine and NAC in the new pre-workout, the scientists behind IMPACT Igniter ensured that you not only have increased blood volume being delivered to the muscles, but that the quality of that blood is improved.
Taurine is an osmolyte, which means it regulates fluid volume in the cells, and is also a well-known vasodilator. In addition, it can decrease muscle damage and speed recovery time between workouts with its anti-inflammatory properties. NAC increases the amount of erythropoietin in the body, in turn increasing red blood cell production. Red blood cells are the oxygen carriers, specifically hemoglobin, and levels of hemoglobin were increased 9% in study participants. Blending these two ingredients creates an open pathway for oxygen rich blood to reach your muscles during intense training and get you powering through those last few reps.

To round out this blend of intense ingredients, the creators of IMPACT Igniter also included caffeine, lion’s mane extract, alpha-GPC, black pepper extract, cinnamon extract, synephrine, higenamine, hordenine, and cinnulin, making this the most complete pre-workout on the market. So whether you’re looking to set that new PR or grind out those last few reps with full force, IMPACT Igniter will get you there. With an array of rigorously tested ingredients proven to maximize every second of your training, this pre-workout is your new secret weapon.
With continued use of IMPACT Igniter pre-workout and intense training, you have the ability to increase your reps by over 50% and see 30% greater output in every single rep. Your muscles can receive more nutrients & oxygen with the potential for 20% more erythropoietin and 10% more overall blood volume circulating. Additionally, your metabolism and fat burning capabilities will be boosted during and after your workouts. You ask a lot from your body, make sure you’re giving it what it needs. Take yourself to the next level of strength training with IMPACT Igniter.
