To achieve maximum muscular growth, a pump (or hyperemia) is essential. We created IMPACT PUMP to deliver exactly what you need to achieve that envy-inducing next level pump every time you train. This formula delivers only the best, cutting-edge, scientifically validated ingredients to achieve MASSIVE Pumps for MAXIMUM Growth.
Muscle cell volume is critical to gaining the size you want. Bodybuilders have known the power of the pump for decades. What was less well known was the exhilarating feeling of the pump was stimulating muscles to increase in size. Science has uncovered the secret. The effect of increase pressure within the muscle cell during intense resistance training creates signals that tell the muscle to GROW!
MUSCLE SWELLING PUMP ACTIVATION
We have known for decades that hitting the gym and lifting weights with repeated sets and high volume gives you the “pump”. But what is the pump and how does it help you? The action of repeated muscle contractions with resistance over a long duration produce this effect through increased blood pooling in the muscle and increased metabolic waste from hard working muscles.
So, how do we amplify this effect in the gym and take advantage of these effects without going blue? IMPACT PUMP has included high levels of key ingredients that have been shown to produce results that lead to substantial increases in levels of blood plasma, nitric oxide, erythropoietin (EPO) and osmolytes (ingredients that help manage hydro-pressure within muscles).
BUT WHAT IS THE PUMP AND HOW DOES IT HELP YOU?
A combination of Citrulline Malate (2:1), Agmatine Sulfate, GLYCERPUMP, N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) and Taurine have been included at high levels to take full advantage of their ability to increase the body’s physiological tendency to flood muscles with blood, nutrients, oxygen and yes, metabolic waste products in response to intense training.
By including Taurine and NAC in the new pre-workout, we’ve ensured that you not only have increased blood volume being delivered to the muscles, but that the quality of that blood is improved. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine (NAC) increases the amount of erythropoietin (EPO) in the body, in turn increasing red blood cell production. Red blood cells (RBC) are the oxygen carriers, specifically hemoglobin, and levels of hemoglobin were increased 9% in study participants.
This improves anaerobic performance and overall exercise performance by decreasing exercise induced oxidation. It increases post-exercise glutathione (anti-oxidant status) by over 30%, which means faster recovery. The cherry on top is that it increases the plasma level of EPO by over 20% and haemoglobin by 9%.
This quantity will increase your power output and overall muscle performance. It will also increase Nitric Oxide. (Intracellular calcium determines the activation of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS), with the production of higher quantities of nitric oxide.) There’s also a hike in fat metabolism so you’re getting leaner with every rep.
NOOTROPIC FUELED FOCUS
Staying focused at the gym isn’t always easy but it is essential. Today’s best trainers recognize the performance gains that can be achieved by making that mind-muscle connection. The more you can improve the connection between your brain and your muscles, the more muscle fibers you can recruit into action to perform a lift. IMPACT PUMP’s AlphaMind Advanced Focus blend helps achieve that brain to muscle connection at the neuromuscular junction.
We have included two ingredients that are considered by most cognitive researchers to be two of the best neurocognitive enhancers out there; Alpha-GPC (α-glycerolphosphorylcholine) and Lion’s Mane Extract (Hericium erinaceus). Alpha-GPC is an ingredient that is considered to be the ideal way to deliver choline across the blood-brain-barrier (BBB). The brain needs a steady supply of choline to act as the raw material for acetyl-choline.
