As IML's official entry into the worldof pre-workout supplementation, Maximum Pump Extreme is a comprehensive,effective adjunct to any intense training program. Taking advantage of the best that legal supplementationhas to offer, Maximum Pump Extreme is not just another stimulant-ridden pre-workoutconcentrate devoid of muscle building value. Rather, it is a synergisticcombination of ingredients designed to improve performance, recovery, andmuscle growth through multiple mechanisms.
Now, don?t get me wrong, I think stimulants are great. Low energy plagues us all?and sometimes theyare just what we need to help power us through a tough workout, but if getting wiredis your only reason for taking a pre-workout product, why not just do a line ofcoke or shoot some crystal meth instead? Either will provide you with plenty of energy and make you feel betterthan any legal stimulant. Or?you could getsome more sleep, re-evaluate your priorities, and select a pre-workout which hasactually been designed to help you become a better BB?r.
So, what makes Maximum Pump Extreme superiorto the stimulant dependent products of yesteryear? Let?s start with the stimulantsthemselves. One of the problems encounteredwith many of our traditional stimulants is the post-workout crash experiencedafter they wear off. It is ironic thatthey same compounds designed to increase energy eventually end up doing theexact opposite, but it doesn?t have to be this way. By utilizing the correct compounds at the properdoses, this problem is significantly reduced. To this end IML has included Cymbidium Goeringii Extract as itsstimulant of choice.
Cymbidium Goeringii Extract is derived from the Noble orchid,a flowering plant native to the Himalayas. Older stimulants, such as Ephedrine, were known for imparting a strong, jittery,anxious effect. While some individuals preferthe harsh jolt of these stimulants, there are just as many who don?t. In contrast, the stimulant effect of CymbidiumGoeringii is smooth and clean with no crash. One can also expect improvements in mental focus similar to prescriptiondrugs like Adderall. Rounding out MaximumPump Extreme?s stimulant profile is the most beloved of all stimulants?caffeine. Combined, these 2 drugs work in unison to increasealertness, focus, and energy without the jittery, nervous feeling that typicallyaccompanies other drugs in this class.
In addition to the energy-focus component, Maximum PumpExtreme also contains several muscle, recovery, and strength boosting compounds,all of which have been university proven to deliver substantial benefits intheir respective areas. The first ofthese is creatine; an old stand-by to be sure, but still considered one of the mosteffective performance enhancers ever made. A few of the benefits associated with creatine supplementation arelisted below:
*Increasedintramuscular water retention (muscle size).
*IncreasedATP regeneration (strength-power).
*Increasedmuscle volumization (muscle pumps)
*increasedprotein synthesis (muscle growth)
Making its way to the sports supplement market just a fewyears ago, beta alanine has rapidly grown in popularity, becoming one of mostfrequently used performance enhancers today. It has been shown to work synergistically with creatine by improving totalcreatine uptake, while simultaneously increasing muscle carnosine levels, whichfurther improves muscular endurance via a lactic acid buffering effect. Completing the creatine, beta alanine performancetrio is another university proven supplement called betaine. New research confirms that this fascinatingcompound directly improves muscle strength-power in trained athletes, which hasobvious positive implications for BB?rs.
No pre-workout product would be complete without the inclusionof the latest pump-promoting ingredients and Maximum Pump Extreme is noexception. A by-product or argininemetabolism, agmatine has just recently grabbed the attention of those withinthe BB?ing community?and with good reason. Not your typical N.O. supplement, the muscle pumps obtained withagmatine are extreme, easily surpassing the effectiveness of old-school N.O.boosters. In addition to its N.Omodulating capabilities, agmatine delivers an impressive list of potentialbenefits, such as: improved insulin response,increased growth hormone production, and improved kidney function. It may also act as an anxiolytic, nootropic,and anti-oxidant.
Maximum Pump Extreme also contains a host of supportive ingredients. Here you will find the testosterone-boosting D-AsparticAcid (DAA) and the muscle volumizing Taurine (also helps relive back pumps). Also included is N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (improves mood, focus, and functions as a mild anxiolytic), green tea (supportsfat burning and has anti-oxidant effects) and Mucuna AAKG, which helps counteractthe nervousness associated with stimulant use, while enhancing mood an mental focus.
Normally, I do not like pre-workout products. They usually make me feel nervous, jittery,and anxious. I just don?t feel good whenusing them, so I generally prefer to just have a cup of coffee if I need a pick-me-upprior to training. As you can imagine, Iwas hesitant to try Maximum Pump Extreme, as I anticipated it to work like somany of the other products I have used in the past. I actually left it sitting on my shelf for almost2 weeks before I reluctantly decided to give it a shot and if it was not forthe prodding of another, I probably would not have tried it at all. I can report that I was pleasantly surprised afterusing it. It provided a very noticeableincrease in energy, but not to the point of overkill. I felt good. I was not jittery or nervous and was actually able to sit down in-betweensets and rest without feeling restless. I was focused and alter, but not wired. There is a big difference. Because it is a powder, Maximum Pump Extreme allowsyou to tailor the dose to your own liking (I used about 2/3rd of aserving my 1st time). This isa product I will use again and coming from me, someone who typically hatespre-workout products, this is saying a lot.
