Let me start off by saying, I am a hyper-responder. People who are non-responders are my opposite. Almost every supplement has some effect on me.
Anyways, I have been taking Vasocharge as a pre-workout supp for the last few months and have been very happy with the effects. I got the email from USP about Jacked and saw the $15.00 deal and went ahead and bought some. I didn't buy the 3 with free shipping because I was happy with Vasocharge and was just curious about the effects of the geranium in the Jacked.
I took the Jacked pre-workout today. I had already taken 2 Metabolifts- I got 2 bottles of it at Vitamin World for a dollar each, its basically your standard thermogenic blend of green tea, caffeine and guarana. Anyways, I took the Jacked and started driving to the gym a couple of minutes later. My heart began beating pretty fast and I was on the phone and started talking fast, almost like ephedra, but a cleaner feeling. I think it was from the geranium. I may look at getting bulk geranium from Nutraplanet, as the effect are awesome.
Anyways, got to the gym and I was fired up to work out. I started throwing around decent weights...no PRs, but I've been cutting and was still working decent poundages, so thats good. Each set I was getting momentum and the workout kept getting better. On my last set I was doing cable rows, and felt like a beast. My heart started pounding and it actually unnerved me a little, kind of like clen.
After that, I went to do 40 minutes of elliptical and had to go pretty slow to keep my heartbeat under 140. Anyways finished up and overall I thought it was an outstanding workout and here it is 5.5 hours later and I'm still pretty wired.
All in all, it was a great workout....I liked it quite a bit better than Vasocharge, and if it comes down in price, I'll probably stick with it. I'd recommend against dosing a thermogenic within a few hours of taking Jacked however.

Did my second workout with Jacked today. I didn't feel the same rush on my way into the gym today, but performance was still outstanding.
I lifted for about a half an hour, doing a circuit with pretty good results. Again, no PRs, but I typically don't go to failure or anything like that when I lift. I then did 25 minutes on elliptical followed by 16 minutes at 8 minute miles on the treadmill. I'm trying to lower my 2 mile run time for my National Guard PT test. I had trouble running last time....something about weighing 280 pounds.
Anyways it was a good workout. I was able to control my heart rate better today, probably because I didn't dose a metabolift right before I took the jacked....I only did one when I woke up.
Jacked is definitely my favorite pre-workout supp so far. Its inspired me to order bulk geranium from nutraplanet as well.

Thank you for the reviewe and I would agree not to dose a thermo based product with Jacked...

quick question rob. as far as stims go, caffeine is the only one i do, and i do 1200mg per day (pot and a half of coffee). would jacked still work for me in your opinion?
EDIT: my concern is obviously if my enormous caffeine intake would affect how jacked would work, as it affects how No-xplode works.

As far as I know, NO-Xplode's only stimulant is caffeine, so that would probably limit the effects if you have a strong tolerance to caffeine.
Jacked has caffeine and geranium. I'd compare geranium to an ephedra with clean, jitterless energy. Its half life seems to be about double that of caffeine....maybe about the same length as ephedra.
To answer your question, obviously someone who does less caffeine will have a bigger effect, but I'd speculate you'll still get a decent effect due to the fact that it has geranium in it as well.

Nice review. PS I don't see how it can come down in price from $15 for 45 scoops (22.5/2scoop serving, or 15 3 scoopers). It's a great deal.

nice review man. ive gotta post my first use review as well. i had one similar to you, but with a PR. however im in a bulk, so they are to be expected.
and there is something else in the stim complex that no one mentioned yet, 9% schizandrin A, aka focus dirt. i only say that because ive never had an experience like i did with jacked when i tryed core zap, which i dosed at 6 caps once, and still, jacked surpassed this by far. honestly, it surpassed my experiences with adderall, in terms of stimulation and focus. and it was only 2 scoops!

I just worked out with Vasocharge tonight, so I'd have a good, fresh comparison between the two. Here's some observations:
Better Energy- Jacked. Not even close. Jacked keeps me going strong on cardio and gets me wired in a good way. Vasocharge has caffeine, but nothing to really get me moving.
Better Pump- Vasocharge. I really didn't get much in the way of pump from Jacked.
Better Strength- Vasocharge. I felt a little stronger from the Vasocharge than the Jacked.
Overall- Jacked. Not even close. The main advantage for Vasocharge I saw is that I can take it if I work out in the evening and the caffeine won't keep me up all night like Jacked will. However, Jacked gets me going with one scoop and is like motivation in a bottle. Vasocharge is a good product, but Jacked is better and much cleaner energy.
