After viewing the Nutritional Panel of Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed, there is no surprise over the speculation the ensued. Supplement enthusiasts will appreciate the complete nature of this Pre-Workout, with an impressive spectrum of ingredients and accompanying dosages of both energy and pump inducing agents.
The trend in the industry of late has seen a variety of companies bring out separate Pre-Workout products; one for the energy and strength component and one for the blood flow and muscle pump formula. In many instances, when products combine both ends of the spectrum in a single product, their ingredients will often be below clinical dose in a bid to fit them all in. Much to our surprise, Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed contains an impressive dosage of each ingredient used, sufficient for all goals including energy, strength, endurance, mental focus and muscle pumps! This one-stop shop of a product appears to have it all, whilst also including some unique ingredients in its formula which have recently generated much attention due to their positive effects on energy and training.

To account for the high dose of ingredients used in this product, each serving requires two scoops, yielding 14g total in weight. Of this 14g, the active ingredients comprise 10.31g of this product, which therefore leaves the remaining 3.69g to the flavouring, colouring and sweetening agents. This means that 73.5% of the product is comprised of active ingredients, which is relatively standard with pre-workout supplements in the market.
The formula is mainly transparent in the quantity of ingredients used, however there is a proprietary blend for the Immaculate Focus & Energy Matrix, which contains the energy and focus blend. Olympus Labs have however revealed that per 2 scoops of Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed, there is 300mg of Caffeine. Therefore, this leaves 350mg for the remaining 4 ingredients contained within the blend, which will be inspected further.
The first element of this product is the maximum endurance matrix, which aims to enhance the duration at which one can perform at a heightened intensity, while maximising one’s strength potential is Creatinol-O-Phosphate, which works as an intracellular buffer to prevent muscular cramps or fatigue, which results in failure during training. Through buffering the rise in muscle acidity which leads to this, Creatinol-O-Phosphate allows muscular contractions to continue and as a result, a higher quantity of muscle fibres can be recruited and stimulated, especially those which have the highest potential for growth and often take the longest amount of time to be recruited. Creatinol-O-Phosphate is contained in a 2g dosage. While there seems to be insufficient information surrounding the efficacious dosage of this product, 2-3g seems to be the recommended amount. Therefore, Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed contains a sufficient amount of this ingredient.
The second ingredient to feature in this product is ElevATP, which derives from apple and fossilised plants, and has been shown to increase the body’s production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP is used by the body as an energy source, particularly during short, sharp bouts of activity, including bodybuilding! Comparable to Creatine, this compound has shown to boost users strength during training, resulting in improved performance and endurance. The recommended dosage is 150mg, which Olympus Labs has included in their formula.
The second element of this pre workout is the Incredible Pump Matrix is L-Citrulline, which works to support muscle pumps, the transfer of nutrients and oxygen to working muscles and vascularity. Of all the nitric oxide inducing ingredients, L-Citrulline has been shown to be the most powerful! It also supports endurance by acting as an intracellular buffer and assisting the production of ATP. As it is contained in its pure form, it yields a higher strength than other popular forms including Citrulline Malate, the 4g dosage is acceptable.
Next up is Hydromax Glycerol Powder (65%) in a huge 2 gram dosage! This ingredient is used to prevent dehydration during exercise, improve exercise performance and increase muscular pumps during resistance training. In particular, it increases the concentration of fluid in blood and intracellular tissues to a point of hyperhydration, and acts like a smonge in your muscles, further drawing water into muscle cells. This helps prevent dehydration, improves performance and stamina in endurance events as well as promoting blood flow during resistance training. It also gives your muscles a fuller, rounder look. The clinical dose is between 1-2g, however rarely do we see the full 2g contained within existing Pre-Workout formulas on the market.
The third installment of the Incredible pump matrix is Arginine Silicate Inositol (as Nitrosigine), which is a highly bioavailable compound comprised of Arginine and Silicon bonded together. This compound encourages enhanced blood flow throughout the body, relaxation of muscles in blood vessels and improved nutrient delivery to working muscles. In addition, it works to provide flexibility and strength to arterial walls to further increase blood flow. Supplementing with Nitrosigine enhances blood flow to encourage better "muscle pumps" and vascularity during and after your workouts, while also promoting more efficient oxygen delivery to muscles resulting in reduced fatigue and increased recovery from workouts. It is contained in a 1.5g dosage, which is on par with the reported efficacious dose.
The final ingredient within this element is 1g of Agmatine Sulfate, which again is frequently used in pump formulas, however does not directly boost blood nitrate levels, instead, it works to inhibit enzymes which breaks down nitric oxide in your body. This leaves more nitric oxide available in the blood to boost blood flow and transport nutrients into working muscles, whilst increasing vascularity and muscle pumps.
The final installment of Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed is the Immaculate Focus & Energy Matrix, with Caffeine being the predominant ingredient. OL have informed us that there is 300mg of Caffeine per serve, which puts it on the stronger side of Pre-Workouts currently available. Caffeine is a central nervous system and metabolic system, and helps reduce fatigue, increase performance increase wakefulness nad inhibits the chemical associated with making you feel lethargic. While opinions as to the most efficacious dose various and needs to account for individual tolerance, 250mg would appear to be an acceptable amount for a Pre-Workout. This makes Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed slightly stronger than the average Pre-Workout.
The second ingredient contained within this proprietary blend is AlphaSize ® Alpha-Glyceryl Phosphoryl Choline (Alpha-GPC), which is one of the most bioavailable forms of Choline available. It is known for its ability to encourage muscle cells to contract efficiently and may help suppress fatigue during exercise. In particular, it is a precursor to Acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that is vital to nerve function and the direct signalling of muscular contractions. Therefore, it is a powerful cognitive enhancer, and has beneficial impacts on focus, mood and mind muscle connection. The recommended dose of regular Choline which yields a lower overall strength is approximately 250-500mg, therefore, we expect the quantity contained within Olympus Labs Conq3ur Unleashed to be approximately 300mg.
Third on the list is the recently trending ingredient Juglans Regia Extract, which is a naturally occurring source of DMHA which is similar to the ever popular but now banned compound DMAA. It is a psychoactive central nervous system stimulant which is used to enhance levels of both energy and mental alertness. Additional benefits of using Juglans Regia Extract include improved cognitive function, decreased appetite, improved bronchodilation, increased levels of ‘feel good’ hormones and an increased pain threshold. As a result, Juglans Regia Extract has been included in a variety of Pre-Workouts and Fat Burners due to its performance and mood enhancing properties, as well as it’s ability to suppress appetite. As limited information exists on this ingredient so far, the recommended efficacious dose is presumed to be between 25-75mg.
The final feature of the Immaculate Focus and Energy Matrix is Higenamine, derived from the Nelumbo Nucifera Seed. It has been shown to increase energy levels, enhance focus and mental clarity and even has shown to be beneficial for weight loss. It does this by stimulating the enzymes that boost fat burning in the body and the activity of chemical messengers involved in the metabolic process of burning stored body fat. It also works to increase lung capacity, increase heart rate and force of heart contractions, which works to support increased blood flow around the body and nutrient delivery into working muscles. While there is no clear-cut information available as to the appropriate dosage, it is most frequently seen in a dosage between 20-30mg.
Taste & Mixability
Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed comes in 4 flavours:
- Krushed Kandy
- Strawberry Kiwi
- Lemon Rox
Unfortunately, the initial batch of this product had some issues during the manufacturing process, whereby one of the active ingredients contained within the formula was causing some of the flavour agents to break down. As a result, the flavours unfortunately aren’t as good as one would expect. Fortunately, some of the flavours are better than others, with Strawberry Kiwi and Mango being our favourite. Olympus Labs have informed us that this will be corrected before the next batch is released, with attention also being paid toward the colouring of the product.
Due to the high dose of Hydromax Glycerol contained within Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed, the product at first appears as though it is clumpy. This is normal for products with this ingredients, and does not impact the mixability and effectiveness of the product. The product surprisingly mixes quite well, and a shaker is not essential to dissolve this product in water.
After inspecting the formula of Olympus Labs Conqu3r Unleashed, there is no doubt that expectations would be high, with such a comprehensive blend of both well known and unique ingredients. There are many ingredients which users are relieved to see, due to their known benefits and proven effects, while other ingredients such as Juglans Regia Extract is sure to raise eyebrows.
Olympus Labs are brave in attempting to tick every box that a Pre-Workout can offer. So how does it stack up? Energy? Check. Focus? Check. Endurance? Check. Muscle Pumps? Check! We see many products over promise, claiming they can do it all, but take shortcuts when it comes to creating the formula, to cut costs and ‘fit it all in’.
