    JP8 is great, the choice is up to you. JP8 will last longer and you'll get more for your money.

    The intensity of this product is great. I drink Mountain Dew during workout for more intensity. The focus is unbelieveable.

    2 scoop serving is 22.5 workouts at 19.99--USPlabs Jacked.
    2 scoop serving is 20 workouts at 29.99--JP8

    Just the facts.

    that is a good deal but i wish i could have gotten it when it was 15 bucks.

    I think i will buy jacked too cuz it doesn't have the fillers the other pre workouts have

    Actually the Grape JP8 has had some new ingredients added. Check out the two supplement facts at Get Diesel Nutrition . Also for more info about JP8 check out their subforum Get Diesel Nutrition . Reviews on JP8 specifically are http://anabolicminds.com/forum/nutra...ml#post1702663 . JP8 is a much more complete formula in my opinion with more ingredients.


    USP Labs commented about the serving size. It really depends how much of each product you want to use. I like 1-1.5 scoops of JP8, but some guys use 2 scoops. Jacked also varies. I would suggest picking both up; they are both at an amazing price right now and I don't think you can go wrong with either. I've restock on JP8, and will be trying Jacked as well to compare. Let us know how they compare if you get them both, to help others with their purchasing decision

    You don't have to do this. I've read somewhere that introducing fast acting carbs while blood sugar drops during workout, that it helps to reduce cortisol a little. This helps me to crank out a few reps.

    My reason is that exercise lowers blood sugar, when blood sugar is low, cortisol rises. It's no different than someone drinking a Gatorade during their workout.

    If mountian dew is made with fructose corn syrup it will not to much for energy or increase insulin it will replensih liver glycogen and not muscular glycogen and once liver is replenished(which happens quickly) the left over fructose turns into triglycerides...

    Maybe it's just me but I do feel an increase in energy when I drink something with sugar during workout. But I will admit though that apple or orange juice don't have this effect.

    I do know that according to one source that the gi of...
    cola 65 (same as sucrose)
    Gatorade 78

    So I figure the Mountain Dew is somewhere in between. So by concluding that soda is high gi, this proves that my blood sugar will rise as a result of this. Now as far as it replenishing muscle glycogen, that's not what I'm after. I know that this is unlikely during workout.

    Jacked Jacked Jacked Jacked!

    2 Scoops is pretty damn amazing for energy and focus. I've been using it for the past few weeks and I'm loving it. Plus its only $20 at the planet. You cant beat the price.

    I might try JP8 next.. but the feedback on taste isn't that great (Sorry if it doesn't taste decent, I cant stomach it) and it is almost double the price of Jacked. But this thread does have me somewhat intrigued.

    yea, well you get what you pay for... I would say jack is a product to get you ready to workout, and jp8 will get you ready to work out as well as more gains

    I'm just wieghing in here. I have been using Jacked since the IC release. It is a great product especially for the price. I am a big fan of Y-RD and Jacked contains Y-RD in a slightly modified form. I have had great experiences with Jacked.

    With that said.......I have some problems with endurance (doing cardio or fight training) when I take Jacked (as well as when I take Y-RD). For me I think some of the ingredients increase my heart rate/blood pressure too much for great performance in sports that require sustained bouts of high output activity. Of course this could be a particular sensitivity of my own body. With that said the flip side is that the energy and focus that Jacked gives really gives you the intensity to push harder and make it through really tough workouts. So overall it boosts drive and intensity to a great degree but, for me, possibly at the expense of some cardiac output.

    I was avoiding tring JP8 because of the reports on the taste. Now that the Grape is out and is supposedly a grealy improved taste I am going to give it a shot. It appears better geared towards endurance and sustained energy. This leads to my point.......

    Just because Jacked and JP8 are both pre-workout drinks, there is a strong likelyhood in my mind that they are not directly comparable and that Jacked should be taken before a weight training workout and JP8 (I will report back in later) should be taken before a fight sport/endurance/short rest period weight training type workout.

    In short there may be a specific place for both when someone engages in cross training.
