It’s 6:30 p.m. on Thursday and you’ve had a long day of meetings, clients and bosses. You’re relieved to get off of work and head for the gym, but your energy levels are tanked and you’re strongly considering writing it off as a rest day. How are you going to recover your energy and train tonight?
It’s 5 a.m. on Monday. The alarm goes off and your first thought is to hit the snooze and grab a few extra winks instead of hitting the gym. You drag yourself out of bed, but you just can’t seem to get moving. There’s no time to waste and you need to be revved up and out the door for your workout. You don’t want to lose valuable gym time just because your energy levels are low. When you work out, you want to go hard and strong. You have a mission. You have work to do. This is your time, and you want to make the most of it. You want to train as hard has you can to get the best possible results. No matter what time you work out or what your current training routine is, whether you’re male or female, the right nutrition and supplements will help you power through your upcoming workout.
Studies have shown that having a pre-workout drink, especially one that includes carbohydrates and caffeine, can increase performance during a workout. Creatine has been extensively studied and used as an exercise supplement. Arginine alpha keto-glutarate and Vitamin B-6 supplements have also been shown to aid in athletic endeavors.
In an age of caffeine- and sugar-laced energy drinks, you need a pre-workout drink that supports your lifestyle and fitness goals. You need energy and focus without that jittery feeling; you want continuous support for your hard-working muscles. You definitely don’t want to crash halfway through your workout. And, of course, you want something that tastes good!
Max Muscle Sports Nutrition’s Full Blown Extreme is a pre-workout mix that contains not one, but three proprietary blends to energize your body and mind. From caffeine for energy to arginine alpha-ketoglutarate for nitric oxide support to L-Tyrosine for adrenaline synthesis, Full Blown Extreme contains everything you need to ramp up your workouts.
The Energy and Focus Complex in Full Blown Extreme is a blend of caffeine anhydrous, panax ginseng, guarana powder, octopamine HCl and NADH that will wake you up and get you moving without that jittery feeling. Caffeine anhydrous and guarana powder deliver caffeine to stimulate your central nervous system. Panax ginseng is a traditional herb that increases energy while Octopamine acts similarly to norepinephrine (noradrenaline). NADH is one of the molecules the body uses to transport energy for reactions.
The Volumizing Matrix found in Full Blown Extreme contains Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate, Kre-Alkalyn™, creatine monohydrate, citrulline malate and vanadyl sulfate to load your muscles in preparation for the work ahead. Kre-Alkalyn™ and creatine monohydrate deliver creatine to your muscles and buffer the effects of lactic acid, letting you work longer and harder. Arginine alpha-ketoglutarate and citrulline malate are involved in the production of nitric oxide, which causes the walls of your blood vessels to relax and expand and increasing blood flow. Vanadyl sulfate helps drive glucose and creatine to your muscles.
The Synergistic Intensity Complex of Adenosine, L-Tyrosine, Phosphatidyl serine, Vinpocetine and Evodiamine supports and enhances the functions of the other compounds in Full Blown Extreme. Adenosine is involved in energy transfer reactions and forms the basis for ATP (adenosine triphosphate). L-Tyrosine is used in protein synthesis and in the synthesis of the hormones dopamine, norepinephrine and epinephrine (adrenaline). Phosphatidyl serine is essential for brain cell function and is a precursor of acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter. Vinpocetine helps dilate blood vessels to increase blood flow, while evodiamine helps with the use of body fat.
In addition, Full Blown Extreme also contains electrolytes that help your muscles contract without cramping and help keep you hydrated. Vitamin B-12 is involved in metabolism and in energy production and Vitamin B-6 is involved in the release of glucose from glycogen. Finally, maltodextrin and dextrose are added for sustained energy during your workout. Refreshing flavors such as Extreme Orange, Extreme Berry Blast, and Extreme Pink Lemonade mix easily in water and are ready in seconds to power you through your workouts.
Keep in mind that traditional pre-workout energy drinks provide a short burst of energy and then drop you down, but Full Blown Extreme, which now comes in convenient single-serving packets, is designed to support your energy levels and allow you to train harder and longer. Take Full Blown Extreme 10–30 minutes before your workout and feel the difference. (If you’re especially sensitive to the effects of caffeine, take Full Blown Extreme with a small meal.) Whether you’re an extreme athlete or just looking for energy to get you through the day, Full Blown Extreme is the answer you’ve been looking for! MS&F
