Let’s be real; you’re looking for an edge no matter if you’re a dedicated athlete that’s been training for years or a beginner just getting into your chosen sport. You know that if you want to reach the highest levels in your sport, you can’t do it alone. Of course, your training, as well as your nutritional programs, must be dead-on, and your lifestyle habits must align with your goals.

What about supplements? 

 A solid supplement program can be just what you need to get you to the next level. Make no mistake, supplements will not in and of themselves give you the physique of your dreams, but they will “supplement” and support everything you’re doing to achieve that lofty goal.

Which supplement line is the best choice? 

 Ignite Nutrition has a solid line of premium quality, well-thought-out formulas that can support your goals no matter what your chosen sport is. Let’s take a look at a great stack of Ignite products that can help you reach the next level.

Ignite Supplements - Load-UPTo start things off, you should be using a supplement that can help you get the most out of your training sessions. A good pre-workout that can make an amazing difference in the quality of your training session is Dominate-Up. This is a comprehensive pre-workout that contains four blends of effective ingredients designed to give you a powerful workout experience: Pump Blend, Performance Blend, Focus Blend, and a Stim Blend. One of the great things about this product, is that the innovative Performance Blend does what many pre-workouts don’t do – provide 2 grams of 3 different, absorbable forms of creatine, a proven performance enhancer.(1,2,3)

Additionally, the Pump Blend features Citrulline (3.5 grams) and GlycerPump™ Glycerol Powder (2 grams) to create a Pump Blend that stimulates nitric oxide production for enhanced blood flow, which not only promotes a great pump but also increases nutrient and oxygen delivery to your working muscles.(4,5) Also, GlycerPump helps pull water into the muscle cells for increased volume and enhanced strength. It should be noted that GlycerPump works synergistically with the Creatine in our Performance Blend to maximize muscle cell volume as well as support overall strength. Our exclusive Focus and Stim Blends work hand in hand to maximize energy, focus, alertness, and the mind-muscle connection, all without the mid-workout crash and jitters that plagues so many pre-workouts currently on the market.

The next product in the Ignite stack is a key supplement that should be in the arsenal of every athlete, especially those that undergo multiple training sessions a day, and that’s our premium quality intra-workout supplement Amino-Up.

The primary advantage of an intra-workout is that it offsets the catabolic nature of training. By helping an athlete maintain an anabolic environment while they workout, they will get a head start on the recovery process and avoid the damage that can result from being in a catabolic environment. Amino-Up provides 5 grams of BCAAs in an exclusive 8:1:1 ratio, which means you’re getting 4 grams of the highly anabolic Leucine, along with a complete profile of all the EAAs, and a unique Electrolyte Matrix to help you stay hydrated throughout every training session every time.(6,7,8,9)

Once you’re done with your training, the next critical piece of the puzzle is an exceptional post-workout drink such as Load-Up.

Load-Up is a comprehensive recovery formula consisting of 20 grams of fast and slow-digesting Whey Isolate, Whey Concentrate, and Milk Isolate proteins, plus a 5 Matrix formula designed to help replenish glycogen stores, stimulate protein synthesis, support joint health and help restore electrolyte balance.

  • BCAA Matrix provides 5 grams of BCAAs in our exclusive 8:1:1 ratio, which means you’re getting 4 grams of Leucine, the most anabolic of all amino acids.(7)

  • Glucose Recovery Matrix, which provides a precise balance complex of Dextrose (18,000mg), Isomaltulose (11,000mg), Waxy Maize (8,000mg), Cluster Dextrin® (5,000 mg) and L-Glutamine (1,000 mg) for a total of 41 grams of fast and slow-digesting carbohydrates.

  • Creatine Matrix that provides 4 grams of 3 different forms of Creatine for maximum benefit, including Creatine MagnaPower® (1 grams), which is Creatine Monohydrate that’s been attached to Magnesium, Creatine Monohydrate (2 grams), which is the original version of Creatine that took the market by storm in the early 1990’s, and Creatine Anhydrous (1 gram), which is a more concentrated form of Creatine on a gram per gram basis because all moisture is removed.

  • Premium Electrolyte Matrix for optimal rehydration featuring Raw Coconut Water (500 mg), which is a superior, nutritionally complete natural hydrator, Magnesium Glycerphosphate (155 mg), Calcium Citrate (800 mg), and Sodium Citrate (640 mg), all-important electrolyte minerals that not only hydrate the body, but also help repair and rebuild damaged muscle tissue that happens as a result of intense training sessions.

  • Joint Matrix which includes D-Glucosamine Sulfate Potassium Chloride (1 gram), Chondroitin Sulfate (500 mg) and MSM (500 mg) to support overall joint health and function. No matter if you’re subjecting your body to one or multiple training sessions per day, it makes sense to take care of your joints.

Regardless of your sport or your training demands, Ignite Nutrition has the products you demand to create the stacks you need. Drive your success with Ignite Nutrition.

At first glance, the idea of gaining strength while you’re on a cut seems a little far-fetched. Think about it: you’re taking in fewer calories, which means less energy, and that usually means a drop in strength. After all, you should be lifting heavy and using a progressively heavier weight to increase your strength over time,

As any serious athlete knows, testosterone is one of the body’s primary natural anabolic hormones and most likely the one that’s most associated with muscle growth, strength gains, and sex drive. The problem with your body’s natural production of testosterone is that it peaks and begins to drop as early as your mid-twenties.
