    "Powermax is a winner for sure! Thanks for the review brother!Last couple reviews weren't rated out of 5 so didnt help our average which should be 5/5 lol! But at least we got tons of reviews so people know its the REAL DEAL!"

    -Adizzle



    I agree Adizzle, its great that we're getting so many reviews. Unfortunately a few 5/5 reviews and others have not been taken into account. I think we'd be closer to 4.7 with those taken into account. Glad to see that PowerMax has the most reviews out of any Pre-Workout on here!

    Finally getting this review up, first thanks to Performax for hooking us up with samples. I split the 2 packs into 3 doses. First one was ~1 serving then the last 2 were ~1.5 servings. Ill base it on my last one which was taken about 3hrs ago, also just fyi I had eaten about a little over an hour before taking it.

    Mixability- 10/10. Totally dissolved just swirling it in the h2o

    Taste- 7/10. Cough syrup-ish but not at all unpleasant, probably would grow on me, I had FP flavor btw. ~1.5 servings in about 6-8oz of water. I usually just throw the powder in my mouth...DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS FOR POWERMAX as I tried it lol

    Energy- 9/10 Hit fast and steady (even though I had eaten an hour or so before).. I can tolerate stims ok, and still could tell this had kicked in. took it at
    635, got on the weights about 750, worked out for 1hr, couldve gone easy 30 more minutes or more, no questions. Also, focus was great, although wasnt many distractions in the gym tonight. Felt like I was in the lifting zone.

    Pump- 7.5/10- pretty solid here. Not much of a pump now, post workout, but certainly was full and fairly vascular during light work with bi's amd tri's, which is what I generally base a good pump off of..couldve \been more vascular, thus a 7.5 as opposed to an 8+

    Overall- 8/10. Cant gauge too much on endurance so ill not attempt, but other areas are solid. If over long haul it doesnt lose its stim/focus punch, and the price is right, certainly a great pre-W.O option. And, this is comparing it with Enhanced which is what ive been on lately. I would absolutley utilize it again!

    I guess mobile really is the way of the future? Of course if you guys could spare a few moments and provide us reviews outside of the AM app, that would be greatly appreciated.

    I wonder how many other companies are experiencing similar issues when using the app? Admin could you enlighten me on any future plans to revamp the osx/android app to enable this function and other similar CTA integrations?

    Thanks!

    5/5


    you guys are doing it right , most reviews for any product i've seen. It deff deserves it and needs to be known. I was just trying to get some free samples and wasn't expecting much, but then i looked at the back of the sample and it was packed; creatine mono agmatine, you name it. great blend for sure.

    Taste: From smelling it i didn't think it was gunna taste good, smelled like cherry cough syrup. I'm very picky cuz i hate cough syrup, but it actually was pretty good, more of a fruit punch though like it states once you drop it in some water. Mixes very well just make sure u mix it completely, chug it and burped a cloud of dust hahaha..but my fault

    Pumps: I have taken a bunch of products such as swoll-n, uncut, rpm, white flood, prodigy, etc you name it. I didn't like swoll-n because i didn't get any effects at first and i hate products that have to build up as PW's. FIRST workout i was doing weight i didn't even know i could do, the drive and determination were incredible, but the biggest thing for me were the PUMPS..THIS IS THEEEE BEST PREWORKOUT JUST FOR THIS REASON i am in love with white flood from controlled labs, but this has become my go to PW. It's impossible to want to use anything else after the pumps and endurance i've been getting.

    Not a very known brand, but the reviews will speak for themselves, with the samples going out and people seeing for themselves there's no reason why this company shouldn't jump up in the flooded market of PW's...should be at the top IMO.. try it guarantee it'll kill whatever you're taking unless you like the tingles. but i don't

    even take it at work when i need some concentration!..thanks again for letting me sample, deff picking up a tub of this.

    edit: i am re-posting my review as i didn't see my rating show up so making sure it is this time.

    First I would like to thank @adizzle and @Dr.Veritas for giving me some samples of PowerMax. I was very excited to try the product, grateful for the opportunity, and glad to provide this review.
    Here is my Review.

    Taste: 4/5
    Not to tart or too sweet. I'm just not a big fan of fruit punch.

    Mixability: 5/5
    Mixes well, nothing floating and no residu noted in the shaker.

    Pump: 5/5
    Powermax gave me pumps like I have never had previously from a preworkout.

    Energy: 5/5
    There is a great punch of energy in Powermax, after taking 2 serving i hit the gym for 2 hours and headed to work. Great energy levels throuout the day and no crash.

    Focus: 5/5
    The focus with this product was awesome with great me Mental clarity.

    Conclusion:
    This Pre-workout was put together, obviously, by a team that knows what they are doing. I will absolutely be picking up a tub in the near future, PowerMax has found a new customer

    Edited my post to a 1-5 scale.

    Hope that helps.
    Thanks again.

    4/5


    Meant to throw this review up a few weeks ago, but I never log on through the computer, and the Mobile app doesn't have all of the options that the computer does. That being said, thanks to ADizzle and Dr. Veritas for the free samps.

    Flavor 5/5. Flavor was outstanding. I got fruit punch and it tasted great. No complaints here.

    Mixability 4/5. Mixed well but left some gritty stuff at the bottom. No worries, I drink a lot of water so I just added a little more at the end and finished off what was left.

    Focus 5/5. Great focus with this product. Much better when using the two scoop protocol rather than the one scoop. I think most people are going to want to go with two scoops.

    Pump 4/5. Pump was very good but not overwhelming. I definitely had no issues knowing that this stuff was working.

    Energy 4/5. Energy came on slow and smooth, not the sort of smashmouth energy that some PWOs possess. No associated crash either.

    Reasons for the 4s...Serving size is one scoop. Packet comes with two scoops. One scoop was not enough for me to recognize the full potential of this formula. I think that this will hold true with most users.
    Overall this is a very solid product and I am thankful that I got the opportunity to give it a shot.

    5/5


    This is my final review after running a sponsored log Of PowerMax shout out to the guys at Performax for letting try this stuff out.

    Taste: 10/10
    I don't really have a between on taste I eight like it or I don't and I judge it a few ways in that respect. One can I drink this stuff EVERY day for how ever long the product will last me. Two is there and negatives that may be something of a downer later IE after taste. PowerMax didn't really disappoint me at all I ran this for a FULL tub any where from one to two scoops only and it tasted great on after taste not to sweet and was like koolaid to me loved it ever time.

    Mixability: 10/10
    I could poor this stuff in water give it a shack or two and boom no grip no mess nothing couldn't ask for any thing else.

    Value 9:10
    I only gave it a 9 for one reason because it took to scoops I feel a product should deliver full power in its suggested service and honestly I looked up how much this stuff list for and I will be getting more. So not a down fall in anyway.

    Effect 10/10
    Ok here is where I will put in some time. This stuff is NOT for a stim junky not even close if you like to be cracked out of you mind of what ever before you work out this will not do that for you . What PowerMax will do for you is give you a nice clean kick in the pants to get you started and hold you though a tough work out. Its got a crazy focus to it and has this ability to for me anyway to just get my in the mood to lift almost zoning me out which I love. Also I think the fact it is not stim heavy makes it better in the respect I took two scoops that it all i needed it never fell off or changed in the energy it gave me. As for pump I am not one to give credit to a pre workout for the pump I get in the gym BUT I will say that while using PowerMax my pump lasted longer and the pump was much easier to get. Another shining point I would like to make in endurance was very noticeably increased while using this product I found that I could push a good bit longer then normal and for a product with out beta alanine in it I find that curious but a nice addition.

    Over all 9/10
    Powermax by far is a product I would recommend and will be making some thing I cycle into my pre workout arsenal. Its not stim heavy which I like and its got a great deal of focus that adds to the energy it provides.

    Final review for Performax PowerMax PreWorkout

    I would like to start by saying all information concluded below are my own opinions and experiences. In no way, was I paid, or coerced into providing a biased review for this product. This review is based on the recommended 2 scoops.



    I'd like to thank Performax and NickSox15 for the opportunity to review and log this product.


    My current phase for last 2 months has been cutting. I was given the chance to try out PowerMax. Given that its supposed to be a low-stim, high performance product, I jumped at the opportunity to test it. As we all know most preworkout supplements rely heavily on caffeine for the energy boost. That's all well and dandy but what a lot of people don't realize is that that huge spurt of caffeine energy can convert to cortisol. Cortisol triggers body fat. That's a no no for me right now.

    The ingredients are typical of most PWO's, with B Vitamins, creatine, vasodilators, and other stimulants. Another ingredient is Advantra Z. I had to look this up and found directly from the manufactures website that its a thermogenic formula that's supposed to help with energy utilization, and amino acid absorption.

    I will break this review down into a few parts here for easier reading.


    Mixability: 10/10
    Performax easily mixed with smaller and larger amounts of water than required on the label. I was impressed with the grit free texture and was easily indigestible. Being easily mixable made taking double scoops easier will less water.

    Taste: 7.5/10
    Taste was good. It was a bit like a fruit punch koolaide. It wasn't the best tasting PWO nor was it the worst.


    Pump: 7.5/10
    The pump with performax seemed to be hit or miss for me. What was noticeable was when I would eat a good large lunch and then took my performax I was getting huge pumps. If I didn't eat as much the pumps were less noticeable.


    Stamina: 10/10
    One thing that remained constant through the entire log was the stamina increase from the product. I could easily speed hours at the gym and still have the endurance to continue training. I've never gotten that from any other PWO.


    Energy: 9/10
    The energy I got from this product was different from any other PWO I have taken. First and foremost when they advertise “clean energy”, it really is. You don't get a huge blast of energy to the face right away. Instead, you get slow controlled energy release. This energy kind of sneaks up on you as your workout continues. You find yourself on set 5 with more energy than you had at set 1 and 2. This means that your able to push harder with heavier weight.


    Final thoughts;
    Overall it was a great product. I liked the fact that I didn't get a face full of energy right away and it didn't have a huge amount of caffeine to get me all stimmed out. Another great thing that I didn't mention before is that there was never an energy crash and I didn't have any issue will sleep. The only thing that was kind of a con, was that the pumps seemed to only when I ate a good meal prior. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but during my cut phase it kind of was a downer since I wasn't eating a ton of calories. I would probably try this product again through my bulk phases to see if the results change. (starts Aug 1) I feel like my workouts were more effective while running this product due mostly to the stamina increase that I got throughout the entire log. Again this is far and away the best product I have taken for increased stamina throughout my workouts.

    I have already recommended this product to a number of friends to try. Especially those whom are looking for something that doesn't hinder sleep and are looking for long lasting energy throughout their workouts. In fact, I gave away both trial packs that I had received in the mail, and gave away a few scoops from my own stash.

    i will be totally honest. i was looking for a new pre workout to try when i saw the promo for powermax-comic book heroes, so i halfheartedly put in an entry-something about a certain anatomy part of flex from fantastic four.

    i really wasn't expecting all that much, but since performax labs was good enough to send me a tub i figured i owed it to them to do a fair and balanced review in the words of o'reily.

    i have to admit i was caught off guard by how much i liked powermax. the smooth/clean energy and endurance really impressed me.

    it's been a week or so since i finished my tub of powermax, really miss it...time to order more.

    btw-no drop off in effects from day 1 to end of tub, very consistant.

    I just had another top notch stellar workout with PowerMax and the energy is not over powering but
    the stamina in the gym is what really makes this product shine.

    Taste: 10/10- I really enjoyed the flavor of powermax. The fruit punch was plenty sweet for me (and I like my stuff sweeeeetttt) even mixed with far more water then recommended. I usually went about 14-16oz per scoop and it was still basically koolaid at this level. Mixability: 7/10- overall this mixed pretty well with minimal effort. A few shakes and it was 90% mixed but there was still a bit of powder that settled if it sits for more then a few seconds. This went away if you kept shaking off and on for about 5min but that's a bit of a pain. I chose to just swirl before I drank and that worked well enough. Energy: 8/10- for me, I needed 3 scoops to really get me going which really shortens the life of a tub so that's why the lower rating here. Very clean energy though that had a nice build up and zero crash. Energy lasted well through my workouts even when they were 1.5hr or so. I did enjoy adding a bit more stim to this but that's all a personal preference. Focus: 7/10- this was off and on for me. I didn't feel that this product had a major impact on my focus on days that I already felt "off" but at times it was like a laser so it's hard to judge. I wouldn't take this specifically for focus if I was having a mentally off day. Endurance: 10/10- for me this is where this product absolutely went above and beyond. Easily the best endurance supplement I've ever taken and in my current cutting stage this was a wonderful addition. I was felt like I could run/lift for days and never once encountered a drop in theis throughout the log. For anyone that is doing a lot of cardio or long workouts I would highly recommend powermax as your pwo. Overall: 8.5/10- definitely one of the better pre workouts I've tried, however it does have a specific place for me. I can't rave enough about the endurance factor but would like to see a higher stim content to really get that energy/focus that pushes you through a tough day. One area that I did enjoy as well was the sense of "well being" that I felt about 20min or so after taking. This was more of a mood improvement vs strict focus or energy but also a great thing to have in a pre if you're going to the gym frustrated or right after work. Personally I would add in some other stims to compliment (and lower the scoops to 1.5-2) this when used on a heavy lifting day. I will definitely be purchasing a tub of this on my own to have for upcoming endurance events

    I had the pleasure of trying samples of Performax powermax pwo. I thought the taste was very good. 7/10. It mixed up in water with no probs. No clumping or gritty texture. After about 15 min here came the rush. (In a good way). I didnt feel tweeked out or shakey. I lost track of time during my workout because of a great mind muscle connection. The energy /pump lasted for hrs with no hard crash on the downside. All in all i give this product a 8/10 and would def recommend it to anyone that wants a good clean feeling pwo. Thank you for the chance to check it out!

A few shakes and it was 90% mixed but there was still a bit of powder that settled if it sits for more then a few seconds. This went away if you kept shaking off and on for about 5min but that's a bit of a pain. I chose to just swirl before I drank and that worked well enough. Energy: 8/10- for me, I needed 3 scoops to really get me going which really shortens the life of a tub so that's why the lower rating here. Very clean energy though that had a nice build up and zero crash. Energy lasted well through my workouts even when they were 1.5hr or so. I did enjoy adding a bit more stim to this but that's all a personal preference. Focus: 7/10- this was off and on for me. I didn't feel that this product had a major impact on my focus on days that I already felt "off" but at times it was like a laser so it's hard to judge. I wouldn't take this specifically for focus if I was having a mentally off day. Endurance: 10/10- for me this is where this product absolutely went above and beyond. Easily the best endurance supplement I've ever taken and in my current cutting stage this was a wonderful addition. I was felt like I could run/lift for days and never once encountered a drop in theis throughout the log. For anyone that is doing a lot of cardio or long workouts I would highly recommend powermax as your pwo. Overall: 8.5/10- definitely one of the better pre workouts I've tried, however it does have a specific place for me. I can't rave enough about the endurance factor but would like to see a higher stim content to really get that energy/focus that pushes you through a tough day. One area that I did enjoy as well was the sense of "well being" that I felt about 20min or so after taking. This was more of a mood improvement vs strict focus or energy but also a great thing to have in a pre if you're going to the gym frustrated or right after work. Personally I would add in some other stims to compliment (and lower the scoops to 1.5-2) this when used on a heavy lifting day. I will definitely be purchasing a tub of this on my own to have for upcoming endurance events

    Final review for Performax PowerMax PreWorkout

    I would like to start by saying all information concluded below are my own opinions and experiences. In no way, was I paid, or coerced into providing a biased review for this product. This review is based on the recommended 2 scoops.



    I'd like to thank Performax and NickSox15 for the opportunity to review and log this product.


    My current phase for last 2 months has been cutting. I was given the chance to try out PowerMax. Given that its supposed to be a low-stim, high performance product, I jumped at the opportunity to test it. As we all know most preworkout supplements rely heavily on caffeine for the energy boost. That's all well and dandy but what a lot of people don't realize is that that huge spurt of caffeine energy can convert to cortisol. Cortisol triggers body fat. That's a no no for me right now.

    The ingredients are typical of most PWO's, with B Vitamins, creatine, vasodilators, and other stimulants. Another ingredient is Advantra Z. I had to look this up and found directly from the manufactures website that its a thermogenic formula that's supposed to help with energy utilization, and amino acid absorption.

    I will break this review down into a few parts here for easier reading.


    Mixability: 10/10
    Performax easily mixed with smaller and larger amounts of water than required on the label. I was impressed with the grit free texture and was easily indigestible. Being easily mixable made taking double scoops easier will less water.

    Taste: 7.5/10
    Taste was good. It was a bit like a fruit punch koolaide. It wasn't the best tasting PWO nor was it the worst.


    Pump: 7.5/10
    The pump with performax seemed to be hit or miss for me. What was noticeable was when I would eat a good large lunch and then took my performax I was getting huge pumps. If I didn't eat as much the pumps were less noticeable.


    Stamina: 10/10
    One thing that remained constant through the entire log was the stamina increase from the product. I could easily speed hours at the gym and still have the endurance to continue training. I've never gotten that from any other PWO.


    Energy: 9/10
    The energy I got from this product was different from any other PWO I have taken. First and foremost when they advertise “clean energy”, it really is. You don't get a huge blast of energy to the face right away. Instead, you get slow controlled energy release. This energy kind of sneaks up on you as your workout continues. You find yourself on set 5 with more energy than you had at set 1 and 2. This means that your able to push harder with heavier weight.


    Final thoughts;
    Overall it was a great product. I liked the fact that I didn't get a face full of energy right away and it didn't have a huge amount of caffeine to get me all stimmed out. Another great thing that I didn't mention before is that there was never an energy crash and I didn't have any issue will sleep. The only thing that was kind of a con, was that the pumps seemed to only when I ate a good meal prior. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but during my cut phase it kind of was a downer since I wasn't eating a ton of calories. I would probably try this product again through my bulk phases to see if the results change. (starts Aug 1) I feel like my workouts were more effective while running this product due mostly to the stamina increase that I got throughout the entire log. Again this is far and away the best product I have taken for increased stamina throughout my workouts.

    I have already recommended this product to a number of friends to try. Especially those whom are looking for something that doesn't hinder sleep and are looking for long lasting energy throughout their workouts. In fact, I gave away both trial packs that I had received in the mail, and gave away a few scoops from my own stash.

    I recently had the pleasure to try powermax pwo. I have to say right away i liked the flavor.It mixed up very easily with no clumping or grit. After about 15 min the rush came in. (In a good way). I expierienced a very good mind to muscle connection. Over all good focus and pump with clean energy and no crash feeling. 4/5

    It was one sample pack buddy. Different factors come into play. Need to really try it out for a week for a solid review. It was good workout. No complaints.

    Yea fruit punch is good

    4/5


    I say mid ranger as It provides energy and pumps in an average commodity but not exactly an excess. Which for me was awesome as I wasn't looking for something to crack me out, but I needed a decent pump. Added another Arginine to this one for an added boost which was awesome.

    Taste 4/5: Good taste, it does make you squint a little but not one to make ya sick at all

    Effectiveness 3/5: Hit me about 20mins later and the energy is good. I liked the boost it provided and as soon as it came it left so great for the evening lifter. Wish It had a little more to the pumps but I added just a little bit of NO3 Chrome and it blew my biceps to great vascular volumes.

    Value 4/5: I got 2 samples in the mail, but plan on adding a tub to my stash as a lower stim alternative.

    Overall 4/5:
    I would actually buy this product, it does exactly what you want it to do and additional add ons in terms of extra energy or pumps are cheap enough to make this an diverse use supp.

    4/5


    Taste: 3/5. Decent. Fruity, but in a chemically way. A little aftertaste. This area has the least weighting for me.

    Mixability: 5/5. No issues, no clumps, no sediment. As good as it gets.

    Content: 2/5. All of the typical PWo ingredients are here – Creatine, Citrulline, Tyrosine, Caffeine, Taurine, etc. However, Performax has them all (except a few vitamins) in one 5g (label says 4940 grams!) proprietary blend. Not knowing what doses are in the product, particularly the stims, is very concerning to me, as I work out at night.

    Effectiveness: 4/5. Although I didn’t dare go above 1 ‘scoop’ (1/2 package), as all 4 of my workouts with Powermax were at night, I was not disappointed. Good focus, energy and endurance. One thing that went completely different on 2 of the 4 workouts. I don’t always time my rest periods, but I was motivated to keep them all to 1 minute. However, I was so focused during those 2 workouts that I went back to my next sets under 30 seconds each time – very interesting and very powerful.

    Price: 4/5. I like to see <$1 per serving on PWOs, and I found it for $30-35 for 40 servings most places I looked. I am willing to pay more when all doses are disclosed.

    Final Review: 3.5/5 Powermax is too effective to rate as low as a 3, but I can’t bring myself to bring it up to a 4 when everything is in a prop blend.

    Thanks for the review man! We found that two scoops was enough to give people lots of good clean energy without any crash or trouble sleeping. If a prop blend is giving you great results, I don't see the reason in lowering the score. But you each their own and thanks fir the honesty!

    Thanks for the review man! When you get a tub, try two scoops. Lots of users report great pumps from that. Could you throw a number review up so it will count on the site.

    Tried it only once as a sample and enjoyed it very much. I think two scoops is where the fun is. But one scoop was good in all aspects
