Axe & Sledge Ignition Switch Pre-Workout is quite possibly the most versatile pre-workout on the market. This pre-workout is designed for everyone and meant for everyone to be able to use. What's really unique about Ignition Switch is there's actually two different instructions and two different ingredient profiles. There's the "some stim" way to take it, and the "extreme stim" way to take it. For those of you who just want a kick in the butt to get to the gym and power through a workout, take the "some stim" way. For those of you who are "stim junkies" and want a lot of stim, take two scoops. What you can expect from Axe & Sledge Ignition Switch, is you can expect it to kick in about 15-20 minutes after taking it. You'll start to feel the energy rush through your body, you'll start to heat up and sweat a bit, and you'll start to feel that laser focus kick in. By the second or third rep you're going to be uber focused, and you'll begin to feel that mind and body effect you hear people talk about. Now a lot of stimulant pre-workouts you'll get really amped up, but then you'll wind up hitting a wall and crashing really hard. Who wants that, after a workout most of us still have things to do. Ignition Switch was designed to give you a mild comedown instead of a crash so you can still do everything you gotta do for the rest of the day. You can also expect great blood flow and amazing pumps. The more blood flow you have moving through your body the more nutrients your body can utilize. And the flavor of Ignition Switch, nothing short of delicious. The Watermelon Lemonade tastes like a Jolley Rancher, and the Grape is reminiscent of Grape Big League Chew a lot of you probably remember as a child. If you're looking for a versatile and powerful stimulant pre-workout look no further than Axe & Sledge Ignition Switch.
The Ignition Switch Stimulant Pre-Workout Formula from Axe and Sledge contains natural ingredients at a reasonable dose. It also has some more potent elements to give that extra bit of oomph. Ignition Switch also has some core vitamins used to help optimize metabolism and energy. Best of all, this is an incredibly versatile supplement for the normal user or the stim lovers.
As a dietary supplement mix one scoop with 8-10 ounces of water. Consume 15 to 30 minutes before exercising. Do not take any other products that contan caffene or any other stimulants while taking ignition switch.
Essential in a pre workout to help increase blood flow and vascularity. This does this by increasing the amount of nitric oxide in your blood. As this happens your blood vessels dilate and more nutrients can get to your muscles. In short this gives you a pump.
For us this is the big let down ingredient in Ignition Switch pre workout. Generally most supplements we try when we review have large doses of this ingredient. It causes parathesia, the horrible itching sensation you get as you workout. It can improve performance, but the side effects definitely outweigh the results.
Beet Juice Powder
This can work in a similar way to L-Citrulline and will get you a good solid pump from a completely natural source. It features as part of the blend in our tried and tested #1 pre workout.
Sometimes referred to as super argenine, this is the pre cursor to L-citrulline. The issue though, is that arginine doesn’t make it through the stomach and is processed and largely wasted. It’s not as effective as it should be.
An essential pre workout ingredient. Caffeine can improve focus, boost metabolic rate and also improve muscle endurance. Remember it’s a stimulant so don’t take it too close to bed! (Duh)
Choline is a natural vitamin that can help with normal liver function. It can aid the nitrous oxide production in the liver which in turn can benefit performance. If you are eating a normal healthy diet though, chances are you’ll be getting enough Choline from food.
This is an isolate that founds in coffee beans and various teas. It can function in a similar way to caffeine. It’s not really needed in this supplement given the caffeine content already.
A purine alkaloid found in some teas. Theacrine is fairly new on the supplement scene when compared with caffeine and creatine. But it does look to be a promising cognition enhancer and may provide some physical benefits.

Ignition Switch contains several ingredients which may cause side effects to users. One particular ingredient which causes a side effect which many users don't enjoy is Beta Alanine which is known to cause "tingles". While some users love the tingles and only use pre-workouts that cause them, some users hate the tingles and find it distracts them from their workout. Other potential side effects are...
