ErgoBlast Pre-Workout: New Formula in 2015 Updated!

Note: This post has been completely updated to feature the new 2015 formula. For a while, stores may have either formula, so take care to note which one you are buying.

ErgoGenix ErgoBlast New Tub

ErgoGenix has cranked up the intensity on their pre workout ErgoBlast with a much bigger and revamped formula.

Ergogenix is a little known supplement company that has somewhat of a cult following in the fitness community. They been quite busy lately restructuring business, releasing new products, and updating some of our old favorites.

One product to get a new lease on life is their pre workout, ErgoBlast. The original was known for its strong combination of focus and energy packed in a tiny 6g scoop. The reformulated ErgoBlast packs a much heftier serving size and add a bunch of other ergogenics to the mix.

We’ll get to those in a second, but first, take a second to check the best deal and sign up for PricePlow alerts:

ErgoBlast Ingredients:

ErgoGenix ErgoBlast New Formula Ingredients

The new version of ErgoBlast packs a sizeable 14g scoop nearly tripling the 6g dose of the original formula!

As mentioned above, the original serving size of ErgoBlast was a rather modest 6g all hidden in a proprietary blend of ingredients. The new version cranks things up with a commendable 14g dose and completely open label that packs energy, focus, and various other performance boosters all tailored to help you crush your workouts:

  • Citrulline Malate (6g)

    Starting things off with the new formula is a new addition to ErgoBlast, citrulline malate. This has become one of the most popular, and effective, pump and endurance boosters on the market. Citrulline works its magic by converting to arginine and raising nitric oxide levels better than arginine itself.[1] This results in higher nitric oxide (NO) production which increases blood flow to the working muscles and yields a significant pump.

    Beyond bulging biceps, citrulline malate also buffers lactic acid and ammonia build up which increases ATP production and endurance.[2,3,4,5] Not only is CM a potent pump inducer, it’s also a valuable fatigue fighter and performance enhancer.

  • L-Norvaline (125mg)

    L-Norvaline is a derivative of the BCAA valine. It supports cardiovascular function and blood flow for nutrients. In terms of enhancing your workouts, Norvaline is another pump-boosting ingredient.

    We all know that Arginine is converted to nitric oxide in the body. Well, norvaline is an inhibitor of the enzyme Arginase, which is responsible for the breakdown of Arginine in the body.[6] Therefore, Norvaline indirectly boosts NO production by ensuring more arginine is available in the body for NO conversion.

  • N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (750mg)

    Our first carryover from the original formula is the focus booster, N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine (NALT). It’s the more bioavailable, and expensive, form of  L-Tyrosine that boosts the production of two critical neurotransmitters in the body, noradrenaline and dopamine. This will improve mood and focus, while simultaneously reducing stress and anxiety.[7,8]

  • Caffeine Anhydrous (300mg)

    ErgoBlast stays true to its roots, by packing the same hit of caffeine in a single scoop as the original did. This amount should provide all of your needs in terms of boosting energy, mood, and focus going into your workout.[9,10]

    We’re not yet done with the stimulants in ErgoBlast though, so some may only need ½-¾ scoop to get in gear for their workout.

  • Theobromine (70mg)

    L-Norvaline Molecule

    L-Norvaline is a potent Arginase inhibitor that indirectly boosts NO levels in the body.

    Caffeine’s little brother, theobromine comes from cocoa and is best known for yielding a “feel-good” sensation when eating chocolate, particularly the dark variety. Aside from improving your mood, it also exhibits stimulatory effects similar to caffeine, but longer lasting and smoother.[11]

    When combined with caffeine (as is the case with ErgoBlast), it helps smooth out the initial “kick” from caffeine and the crash that’s typically experienced with high doses of caffeine. The combination of these two ingredients leaves you feeling energized longer for your workouts without having a harsh landing after the stim-high wears off.

  • N-Methyl Tyramine HCl (35mg)

    NMT is a beta-2 adrenergic agonist in the body. Basically, it ignites the “flight or fight” response that helps utilize fatty acids for energy and increases adrenaline production. Research has even shown that NMT is roughly 1/140th as potent as adrenaline,[12] so you’ll definitely be riding a “high” of sorts with all of the stims in ErgoBlast, and we still have one more to go!

  • Higenamine HCl (25mg)

    Higenamine is another beta adrenergic agonist considered to be a “weaker ephedrine” (which has been banned in pre workouts).[13] On its own, it packs a mild stim kick, but when coupled with caffeine and the litany of other stimulants present, it becomes increasingly more potent. We’ve had good experiences when using 50mg of Higenamine on its own, but the 25mg here along with the other stims should pack plenty of punch.

  • Huperzine 1% (5mg)

    Huperzine A is yet another focus booster in ErgoBlast, and another carryover from the original.  It slows the breakdown of acetylcholine (the “learning” neurotransmitter) in the brain, which indirectly increases the amounts available.[14]

    It also can be classified as neurogenerative by aiding the creation of new brain cells.[15]

Flavors Available

Pineapple Slices

We’re glad to see Pineapple Mango make it to the new batch of flavors from ErgoGenix as it was one of our favorites in the original ErgoBlast.

ErgoBlast’s formula wasn’t the only thing that got tweaked. They’ve kept a few of the old flavors, and added a few new ones to the mix. The new version is available in:

  • Pineapple Mango (a PricePlow flavor favorite)

  • Raspberry Lemonade

  • Strawberry Ice

  • Wildberry Pomegranate

Wrap Up

ErgoGenix does a lot of things right with their updated version of Ergoblast. They’ve kept a lot of their energy blend, ErgoStim, found in the original and added some other valuable performance enhancers. Another big plus is the move to a completely open label, which we are HUGE proponents of, as is a growing number in the fitness community.

This was just released, so we’ll keep our eyes and ears open for feedback from the community and we might just have a review of the new formula as well. So, stay tuned to PricePlow for further updates and be sure to check the best deal!
