I received my WF 2 days ago, and tasted it on the spot, as well as today pre-workout for the first time.
Today I took 1.5 scoops an hour before the gym without food, ate a banana on the way, then ran 1 mile barefoot on the treadmill at a 7:30 pace, then put my shoes on for another mile at a 7:00 minute pace. I'm trying to get used to the barefoot thing, it's WAY better physically.
I went on to do alternating dips and pullups, 7 and 5 respectively, with 20sec rest in between supersets. I did a total of 6 sets, then did behind the head dumbell press for 3 x 10 x 55, and EX bar curls 3 x 10 x 65.
Taste - 10. It's just great. It's a fruit ****tail, with tropical hints and a smidge of bubble gum. Negligible bitter/herbal/chemical aftertaste, nothing at all like the original flavor. Very, very nice. Quaffable, I might say.
Consistency - 10. CL powdered supps are second to none: uber-fine, super-smooth. It mixes quickly wit a spoon, leaving virtually zero residue or silt.
Effects - 10. Stage 1: around 7 minutes after I took it, I was walking down the hallway, and realized I was breathing like I was running. Oh, right: GABA hits HARD! Oh yes indeed. It subsided after 5 minutes or so. Definitely something to be aware of, if you've never experienced it. Perfectly normal, however.
Stage 2 - the energy hit hard. 1.5 scoops is strong. It hit filly within 30 minutes or so; motivation was high, mood was great. in the gym was excellent.
Stage 3 - post-workout. I have been using RagNOrok 3 times a week for months, so my body is acclimated to the arginine/pump stuff. My pump was not what a first-time user should expect, as they'd need several days/workouts to gain full benefit. But yes, pump was enormous. Outrageous. I do this workout once a week or so, and never look this full. Impressive, if you want thick pumps.
This stuff is full of win. It's economical, effective, happy, and tasty. More to come later in the week!
