Rosie's [Mini] Review of Maniac (Pink Lemonade flavour)

  1. Rosie's [Mini] Review of Maniac (Pink Lemonade flavour)


    Along with my tub of Red Raspberry RecoverPRO were a couple of samples of Maniac (one for each Sean and I), and since this has been a month of trying new products, I figured why not just use it and see what it was like. This is what happened . . .


    What is it?



    * Increased Pumps
    * Extra aggression in the gym
    * No Crash
    * Increased Muscle Mass
    * Increased Vascularity
    * Insane Endurance
    * Extreme Focus

    For more information on the product, please review AI Sports Nutrition :: Maniac.


    Smell: In the packet, Maniac smelled strongly like lemonade.

    Taste: Definitely lemonade - it could have been a Sprite, it has that taste. Unfortunately, I am not a fan of lemonade or lemon flavoured products (even though I like lemons), so I was not doing cartwheels over the taste. Taste was true to the said flavour though.

    Solubility: On shaking there was no trace of the powder and no clumps or excess was left in the water or on the bottom of the shaker; no bubbles left on top of the water either.

    Texture: Like fruit juice diluted with water.

    Aggression: I wasn't actually aggressive when training today. Sometimes my aggression gets so high that I just want to beat something to a bloody pulp, but there was none of that, not even a hint. Just determination to keep goin.

    Focus: Had extreme focus for my training. In fact, I was so focused on my sprints during HIIT that most of them were MORE than 20 seconds!

    Endurance: Today was this week's longest resistance session and I was fine. No faltering or dying, and not feeling exhausted.

    Pumps: I had excellent pumps, which is normal anyways, since I did a Full-Body session.

    Vascularity: Vascularity was AWESOME! I did some posing practice in my recovery periods towards the end of my resistance session, and vascularity was like, "wow - I want that for competition and ALL the time!"

    Muscle Mass: I'm not currently aiming for muscle accretion, since I am in a fat loss phase re competition preparation. However, one sample and one session is not enough to comment on body composition effects that a product may contribute towards, whether gaining muscle or maintaining current muscle mass.

    Other Effects: Energy was great - very pleasantly surprised. No crash of energy either, which is good.

    Overall: I only used a single scoop of Maniac once, which is not enough to give an overall score, and I would need to have used it for a prolonged period of time to give a real evaluation on it.

    Would I use again? Actually, yes - albeit in a different flavour - to see what long-term effects of a full tub brought.

    Would I recommend? I really would have to use a complete tub of Maniac to see what its long-term effects are re progress and results, etc., before I could say whether or not I would recommend it. Based on my one sample for my one day of training, though, I definitely recommend trying a sample.

  2. I have a sample also Rosie. Been thinking about trying it but I tend to stay away from anything with any type of stimulant in it besides a little caffeine. I don't react well to stimulants either so not sure if I should even use it.

    I am the same now, especially after what Assault has done for me in kicking my stim abuse and addiction - hence why I dragged my feet to even use a scoop of Mesomorph. However, Maniac only contains caffeine - no other stimulants. In fact, if there is a product that was similar re effects, I would say it made me feel the same as RPM did (and RPM was great).

  4. Rosie is right. Maniac is not really for somebody looking for a strong stim in the gym. It's more for endurance and focus. In fact, a lot of Maniac users will stack a capsule (or more) of Motivate with their Maniac dose when they're looking for more of a stimulant kick.

    Maniac and Motivate would work as a perfect stack for those looking for that "stim" effect for sure. But yeah, you don't need a strong stim in the gym to have an intense and quality training session
