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!
I read your log, looks great! BTW, I'm still feeling full and pumped, 5 hours later.
props to cl for choosing great guys to log this product.
i already knew wf is great, lol.
great review. I am a huge WF fan, and I love fruit punch. this is a winner imo. Was not as big a fan of the raspberry, but this sounds great

Thanks bigt and ae14!
Bah, I was supposed to workout this morning, but got called into work early today. Dammit, I was psyched!
one heck of a review so far, keep this bad boy going. nice work
I had lots of coffee roasting to do, so I ate some food, roasted away, took 1 scoop WF at 0130, and hit the gym at 0230. I am doing the burpee challenge: 100 burpees a day for 100 days.
Burpees- 50, 30, 20 (3 days in, I'm doing wporse, not better, to be expected)
Alternating bench and chest supported rows, 6 sets each
Tri pushdowns- 3 sets
1 scoop WF in 12 oz cold water tastes great. I didn't have as empty a stomach, so the gaba didn't hit like last time. Energy was about perfect 30 minutes in, and I was mentally jacked 45 minutes after, as I hit the gym.
Pump- 100 burpees will slam your quads, abs, and erectors. The quad pump was ****ed, huge. I looked jacked when I left the gym.
- I didn't eat quite enough today, the switched up schedule threw me off. Despite that, was very good.
Thanks for the props, bigt and CL!
It's Monday morning, RAWR! I rolled out of bed, took 1.5 scoops, and enjoyed a massive gaba flush (no idea why it's called a flush, as it's more akin to having a panic attack while running from an axe murderer, or possible having a baby whew whew breathe, breathe). I was at the gym within 45 minutes of dosing, eating a banana along the way.
I ran 1 mile with no shoes, 1 mile with. I felt GREAT. I then did alternating decline bench and hammer strength low rows, 6 sets. I felt really explosive, and hit 20lbs heavier on each than I have in a while.
I got 40x135, 10x135 on DL, and wrapped up with 3 sets tri pushdowns.
Taste - great! A lovely way to wake up.
Effects - gaba kerpow! Funny how it always catches me off guard. Outside that, the workout was outstanding, I finished up in under a half hour, and felt really strong and coordinated. Excellent!
Thanks man, keep these reviews coming.
No problem, I'm very much enjoying the new flavor! BTW, I wrapped up my day with 100 burpees just now. After the 40x135 on DL this morning, I was 'off'. I pulled out 50 burpees, then nearly collapsed, my legs are done. I had to do 2 more sets to finish the 100 up.
Next workout, WEDS!
Just great. I left the house for work yesterday at 9am, and got home after 1am. And had to be back at work at 1030am. So no workout for me today. I woke up hard this morning, so I took a half scoop of WF first thing, then had 2 double espressos. The WF flavor was super refreshing, and had already KO'd the sleep within 20 minutes. I should get a workout in tomorrow.
I fully agree, bigt. A lot of the effects come from the combination of ingredients, not just the caffeine. I have noticed that despite a whopping level of energy from 1.5 scoops, I get a mild caffeine withdrawl headache in the afternoon. This tells me that WF has less caffeine than my usual 2 double espressos, which is probably 100-150mg caffeine.
Great, the tsunami in asia a couple years ago hurt, too. Damn disasters.
