    4/5


    Thanks to Ricky for hooking me up with a few samples, I appreciate it.

    I was given 2 flavors, one tasted like watermelon, the other berry. It has a pretty solid ingredient list. What I look for in my prewo's now is the stims. I'm against 1,3D. I love the stim for the first few weeks but I end up feeling like crap after a while from it. So it's hard for me to find a good prewo without 1,3D that can still pick me up.

    Prodigy definitely did that. I felt a good rush of energy after about 10-15 minutes. By the time I hit the gym a half hour after ingestion I was ready to rock. I didn't feel jittery whatsoever and the energy level was maintained throughout the session. I don't train for aesthetics or a 'pump' but I did notice on my upper body day that I was fairly swollen from it. My lats felt like wings and my chest felt inflated.

    My only issue with prodigy was the taste. I'm picky about tastes though. The base of it tasted how it should but it had a slight after bite to it..almost like a bulk supplement would have a bite or bitterness. It wasn't terrible though and I intend to buy this product at some point.

    Other than that, it mixed well in 16oz of cold water and went down smooth. No bad side effects whatsoever. This goes into my top 3 preworkouts (Condense and Hemavol will be the other 2)

    5/5


    My Background:
    I've been pretty reliant on stim heavy pre-workouts and was not able to taper off before submitting this review. This review is based of using the PWO 3 times so far.

    Taste:
    Flavor sampled: Watermelon
    Initial taste was delicious but come 3 seconds later is this awful aftertaste. Not the worst i've ever tasted but it's definitely noticeable and can easily turn you away if taste is a big issue to you. For myself, taste is a luxury. As long as the product delivers, I could care less about a ****ty 1-2 minutes of taste. I have read other reviews on this product and they didn't mention the aftertaste which makes me think it's somewhat individual dependent.

    Pump:
    The pump was great, it wasn't too much but rather perfect, lasted through out my entire workout. Perfect feeling of Fullness

    Strength/Endurance:
    Strength and endurance both went up. I feel like the previous pre workout I was on was having little to no effect on me besides the pump. This allowed me in the 3 days i've used it so far to hit 2 new PR's.

    Mixability:
    Mixes extremely well. Because of the aftertaste, I like to use it in the Shot method, so 2-4oz of water and down it in 2 gulps. No residue left behind, no clumps, no grit.

    Focus/Energy:
    This is one of my top pre-workouts when it comes to delivery in terms of energy and focus. The come up is VERY Smooth and clean, it levels out and lasts for a good hour and a half to two hours. So clean that it feels like there are no stims. Definitely nice to have a PWO that isn't dependent on Caffeine or 1,3 despite their effectiveness. This definitely measures up. There is no crashing afterwords and I feel great for the rest of the day. With my previous PWO, I would intake, and not be able to fall asleep for 4-5 hours after. With this, I'm able to get my work out done effectively, come back and fall asleep (My schedule demands it). The BA tingles are perfect. IDK if it's due to my built-up resistance to it from the previous workout but it's a slight tingle sensation and not overbearing. Aggressive workouts but calm and collected. Focus was great on getting reps done and reaching those goals.

    Overall:
    Price is great! Because I don't rate a PWO based on taste, I have to give this a 5. Will definitely be buying again (trying blueberry next) assuming the rest of this month goes well. Any changes and i'll update this review with my thoughts and opinions.

    Great review. I do notice the aftertaste. I describe it as bitter, but I don't mind it at all, in fact, the longer I use it, I actually am starting to enjoy the after taste. Interesting you say it lasts for 90-120 minues. I've noticed the life of the stim/focus effect lasts well into the 3-4 hour range with no crash.

    Keep in mind i'm walking into Prodigy straight from heavy stims, i'm trying to adjust scoops and find the sweet spot. I kill myself at the 90-120 minute mark and it is afghan, by the time i make it back to the tent, i play an hour of cards, lay down, post some ****, and pass out haha

    It's also probably related to me not being able to judge the focus after 2 hours because i'm back in my tent. No crash regardless of the timing however, which is really nice, i got grumpy before when i crashed in the middle of something.

    I wanted to mention that I think it would be a good idea to take a break from stims when you told me the amount of jack3d you were taking and weren't feeling anything. Just lookin out for you man.

    3/5


    got a sample bottle of this..not a fan of this type of pwo..hate tingles with a passion.. i can usually take my pwo's at work to help keep me focused when coffee doesn't do it, felt extremely more irritable which was great in the gym but not at work lol.. with other pre workouts i don't feel tired at all..with this one i felt i was concentrated but eyes were heavy and i woke up feeling great from a full nights sleep..overall gave it a 3 because it does what its suppose to and had decent pumps just not for me, but when lifting my feet and hands felt sooo weird i couldnt even finish my workout..i like raw natural enery not the tingly bugged out feeling..i;ve been experimenting a lot with pwo's and this is not on my list to alternate with..

    5/5


    Taste: 4/5 Like others have mentioned its tastes pretty damn good but the after taste not so much. I had watermelon, which is always one of my favorites.

    Energy/Focus: 5/5 I have had dozen of pres and this easily hit the energy focus right on the head for me. My mind was racing but it was in a good way? I felt like i could figure out a ton of things at once. This was even not on an empty stomach I can't wait for that!

    Pumps: 4/5 Did shoulders to it really is the hardest body party for me to tell if I am getting a good pump. Was about average compared to other pres I have had.

    Endurance: 5/5 This and the energy were the highlight of this product for me. I felt like I could lift for forever. Just a great feeling over all.

    Overall I am extremely happy with this purchase. I found it for a pretty decent price and there were about 5 new pres i was choosing from at the time i really wanted to try. I doubt I could have possibly be happier with anything else. May try a different flavor next time but will be purchasing again I am sure!
