Pre Max Comments
Premax + Waxy Maize is out of this world for me. Like I said, if people are looking for the focus/motivational ****, stick to the other stuff. Pre WOs for people who really train focus more on the nutritional side of things and this certainly does that perfectly. Ive been doing low rep heavy training and switched it up this week for reps and drop sets. Its been miserable but I used premax today and there was a real world difference. I was doing squats for 10-15 reps starting at like 275 (Im short, gimme a break) and dropping it from there. I ended the day after 3 hard drop sets with 315x5. I would get under weight and feel like there was no way to even get one rep. Standing with it was a chore, and Id knock out 10 reps. And walking out of the gym, I didnt feel like my CNS needed a 3 month vacation. Like I said, you wont feel it as much as others but towards the end of the workout and after, thats when it shines. Thats my take.Apparently I didn't read the instructions very well. I have only been using PreMax at half dose and still getting a pretty good pump. I will try using a full dose tonight and see what transpires. I probably just assumed one scoop was a full dose since this is the way most preworkout supps are scheduled.I purchased 2 bottles of Pre-max about 3 weeks ago and couldn't wait any longer to give it a try. I went with 1 scoop to see what it was like and let me tell you, this stuff is the real deal. I felt amazing, no lactic acid, no feeling like my skin was tingling, no griminess on my skin after (like a lot of pre-workout stuff), and I just wanted to keep going... no fatigue at all, good pump (though I was decline benching only 25 lb. d-bells for slow concentrated reps!!).
Though on a budget, the price almost turned me away....I have to say this is an AWESOME product and well worth the cost. I'm 35 and have tried just about every pre-workout product out there... no lie, I have a buddy who works at vitamin shoppe and he always gets me free samples and used to buy a lot of stuff at discount because of the expiration dates. THIS STUFF IS THE REAL DEAL the first time I used it and I only used 1/2 a serving and lifted about as light as my wife does!FINAL REVIEW
Premax at a full dose was awesome. Best pump ever, decreased soreness, increased energy.
Premax ar a half dose is very affordable, still a better or equal pump to all the other preworkout supps I have tried, decreased soreness, increased energy.
Premax review at a FULL DOSE taken preworkout
-Best pump i've gotten from a preworkout
-Very clean and focused pump, no headaches
-Very clean and noticeable energy, no jitters or crash
-Decreased soreness and lactic burn
-Tastes decent, doesn't taste bad by any means
-The price is high, but you are getting what you pay for
-In summary for my full dose of premax, the pump I got from this was extreme. It was very similar to the pump I get from hormonal compounds, and greater than any pump i've gotten from any other preworkout supplement that I bought or made myself. It by far beats any arginine or citruilline or any supps loaded with that stuff.
-My favorite benefit from this was the decrease in lactic acid. It allowed me to work harder while lifting, and also allowed me to have decreased soreness in the days following my workouts. It was very apparent.
-There was viagra like effects with this. I wasn't just popping stiffies left and right, but if I was trying to pop one...yea...
-The energy I got from this preworkout was spot on. Not all crazy jittery, and very clean. A few days I lifted on only about 2-3 hours of sleep, and after taking premax and doing a few warm us sets, I was ready to go.
Premax review at a HALF DOSE taken preworkout
Premax at a half dose allows you to get 20 sevings per bottle, which is very affordable for most. That is 20 workouts per tub, so a month supply at least.
In comparison to other preworkout supplements, I would stuff rather take a 1/2 dose of premax than a full dose of any of the other (many) products I have tried.
The pump i got from the half dose wasn't as extreme as the full dose, but was still very apparent, and still just as strong if not stronger than all the other supps I have tried.
The decreased soreness I got from the premax at a half dose was great. And this is something I never notice from other supplements, which is why I would recommend a half dose of premax to everyone who can't afford the full. I still got a lot of energy from the half dose.
Final Review: Kick ass, this is one of the best pre workout products, if not the best, that i have ever used. Its pricey but worth every penny. At worst i suggest you pick up GPLC + beta-alanine in Polm Juice and use that if your on a budget. I will make Pre Max a staple at 1 1/2 scoops, so 15 workouts. Hope this review helps.
I'll give PreMax from PP a shout.
Brief description in case you were not aware, pre-workout drink comprising:
Dipeptides: PeptoPro® brand hydrolyzed casein protein isolate.
Antioxidants: Organic freeze-dried pomegranate, Tomato extract + GSE
GPLC: Glycine Propionyl L-Carnitine Hydrochloride GlycoCarn®
So non-stim. GPLC often rumoured to have amazing properties. Dipeptides very readily absorbed. The product is believed to stimulate rapid muscle recovery with a study supporting it. It certainly appears to be a much stronger product than individual amino acids, e.g. Purple Wraath which I've used and found not to be effective as well as tyrosine - which does zip for me.
One theory (my theory really, waving my arms about) is that the body wants dipeptides, or it prefers them, rather than dealing with single amine acids (monopeptides as it were). The other idea is that GPLC is doing all the work.
Does it work?: You bet ya. Tried for the first time today, for a non-stim it was amazing. I took it with ginseng (6-year old ground) and Muira puama - the energy effect was noticeable, it could have been acting synergistically with ginseng. It felt like a charged up dose of ginseng with very noticeable body stimulation however there was reasonable mental stimulation - Muarama gives this but ginseng doesn't. It also appears to have regenerative properties - that too soon to say but it felt that way. Certainly one to keep an eye out for and if you can try go for it.
Summary: expensive, maybe. Value? Certainly. Could be a novelty effect. Could be a major new tool in the workout world.
