I love sampling pre-workout supplements because of how much they vary in taste and effect. For some people, some pre-workout powders are useless. I spoke to someone recently who has tried a half dozen pre-workout powders and they all have the inverse effect on her – making her lethargic. Each pre-workout supplement works in different ways because they are formulated with different ingredients both in quantity and purity.
I have the basic standards when it comes to testing out pre-workout supplements. I have to use the product for at least a week, and better yet for a couple of weeks. I want to make sure that the initial effects last over time instead of your body becoming accustomed to the supplement. I also rate the product based on quality, taste, mix-ability, effect and value.
HIT Supplements has formulated Igniter Extreme based on quality ingredients such as Beta Alanine, Creatine Monohydrate, HMB, Glutamine, BCAAs, etc. mixed with quality vitamins into and N.O. (Nitric Oxide)/Fuel blend and a Power/Endurance blend. The formulation used for Igniter Extreme is designed to increase your intensity levels and stretch your workout boundaries.
Here is what we do know about some of the ingredients used in HiT Supplements Igniter Extreme:
- Creatine Monohydrate promotes muscle vascularity, contraction, and growth
- Nitric oxide leads to increased blood flow and greater muscle pumps
- Contains essential amino acids including BCAAs
- Supports intense mental focus which helps you train harder and longer
- Delivers vital nutrients required during training and recovery
- Promotes stamina and energy for better intensity, strength, and endurance
- Supports recovery before, during and after exercise
- Contains ingredients that have been shown to delay muscle fatigue
While these are lofty claim, this really is more than marketing speak for a product like HiT Supplements Igniter Extreme. I am loving this pre-workout supplement and have run it through rigorous testing to ensure that the product works as effectively weeks into your training as it does on day one. I am three weeks into using HiT Supplements Igniter Extreme and am as excited about its results as I was on day one.
For use as a dietary supplement, mix 1 scoop with 4-8 ounces of cold water 30-45 minutes prior to training. Mix until completely dispersed. Drink immediately. For an extreme effect, mix 2 scoops with 8-16 ounces of cold water.
Just as the directions say above, this is how I use it, but I am fine with one scoop. Sure, two scoops work very well, but I get enough of what I need with one single scoop. Not many powders can attest to this. I have taken plenty of pre-workout supplements where I need a double or triple dose just to feel its effects, especially after my body becomes accustomed to its blend.
Take a look at the HiT Supplements Igniter Extreme label. It is all there for you to see. It is loaded with the staples of a pre-workout supplement. While I like to individually measure out supplements, the blend used with Igniter Extreme works very well for me.
I have no complaints of the quality of Igniter Extreme. If the individual components of Igniter Extreme were not high quality, it would become apparent once you use the product for more than a few days.
This is where it is all at. This is why we take our pre-workout supplement. Without a positive effect, they are useless. You begin to feel Igniter Extreme’s effects within 20-30 minutes although they claim 30-45 minutes. Igniter Extreme gives you a pre-workout muscle pump quickly and the blend of N.O./Fuel and Power/Endurance are too hard to deny. You will go harder for longer and with more focus. As stated before, Igniter Extreme maintains its effects over time whereas some of its competitors fizzle out after repeat usage.
HiT Supplements does recommend that you drink it immediately after mixing it to prevent any of product from falling to the bottom. The product mixes fairly easily with a spoon. I tend to mix it for a few seconds, let it sit, and repeat this process 2-3 times and it is blends perfectly. I get absolutely no leftover powder mixing it this way.
This is always my least important feature, but one that matters to a lot of people out there. I am currently using the Tropical Punch flavor and it is outstanding mixed with water. I look forward to the taste, which is not something that I can say about too many pre-workout supplements.
At about $1 per serving (if you use a single serving), Igniter Extreme is very affordable. Most pre-workout supplements work best on a double and triple dosage, so Igniter Extreme’s value increases when you know that 25 servings per container literally means 25 servings.
