APS Mesomorph in the Morning (sponsored)
Starting a log on APS Mesomorph. Joakman over there was kind enough to send me a full tub rather than the 4 samples advertised (plus a t-shirt and shaker), so I'll take the opportunity to put up a log using this.
Does was 1 scoop at 6AM for a 6:30 workout. First impressions:
Taste: 9/10 - Grape flavor was good like Muscle Marinade grape, but not as strong, a bit sweeter like a kool-aid grape. It's good to cover up other flavors like EAA and ALCAR if you like adding stuff in your PreWO drink. Easy to drink, actually like it!
Energy: 9/10 - While I didn't get the euphoric feeling like from the first time using MM, it woke me up more than any preWO I can remember. On my drive in to the gym, usually my eyes are tired and I'm rubbing out the crusties. Well, sitting at a stop light I was surprised my eyes were wide open and I was wide awake. I had great focus at the gym, real good mind/muscle connection. I think it's the Thiamizine (Thiamine Disulfide Butyrate Ester), that stuff gives me great alertness and energy. I left the gym still feeling energized, and now 2 hours later I'm still going strong. I typically crash off of MM shortly after leaving the gym, eyes get heavy.
Endurance: 7/10 - I worked my 5x5 program today, so not much in the way of endurance. On set 4, I wasn't able to lift as much as Monday, but I've been stalling out lately. I wouldn't attribute it to Mesomorph, more likely time for a deload.
Pump: 7/10 - I just don't feel pumps too much on chest/leg/back days. Pumps hit me hardest on arm days. That being said, I do feel muscle fullness longer after my workout today than normal. Real test will be next week arm day.
Overall: 8/10 - For me, the energy is the most important thing since I workout typically around 5:30AM. Mesomorph seems to perk me up and keep me awake longer than other preWO supplements I've used. The taste is great too, no discomfort whatsoever. I'm looking forward to feeling the pump on arm day!

This is the best preworkout powder I have used so far and I have had great workouts each time I have used it. I think you are going to love it but I would not use it every day I rotate my preworkout supplements each workout so I don't get use to the ingredients.

Okay, took 1.5 scoops Mesomoroh second day using this. Well, got the closest to BA tingles so far when I got into the gym parking lot. Had a decent 5x5 workout (hurt lower back/left ham/left glute a couple weeks back on DL's so have to take it easy on bent rows and squats), good energy and focus from the Mesomorph. When things really got going on squats, I started to get really queasy. I don't know whether it was just lots of work, or too much pre-workout. Overall a good workout, though I'd liked to have gotten in a bit more without feeling ill. Energy still lasted through the workout and into my morning.
Overall, I'm going to stick with 1 scoop as that gave me good energy and focus for my workouts. 1.5 actually seemed like too much, to my surprise. If I get tolerant, I may bump up, but certainly no need to do that for now!
Mesomorph is strong at 1 scoop!!!

Mesomorph is turning out to be a good true 1-serving pre-wo that gives energy and "awake" feeling. Plenty of BA if you're into that. But like Spirodex, I wonder about building up tolerance. Only time will tell on that one, but so far it feels good.
I'm interested in APS Creatine Nitrate. It's been getting rave reviews on the pumps it produces pre-wo. I typically use SlinShot with creatine mono and carbs to get a good pump going, but may have to try the Creatine Nitrate if I can find it on a good deal somewhere.
I still like the Spirodex, but it doesn't have the same energy effect for me after about a week. Good mood boost overall, but diminishing returns. Makes me wonder whether I'd want the SuperPump MAX...

No kidding, 1 scoop today and I was really feeling it more than most pre-wo's. Pretty good arm pump, I wouldn't say my best ever, but I definitely felt it good. Energy was there, as expected.
Mesomorph seems like a good contender in the pre-wo market so far after 3 uses.

Use #4: Still great energy and sense of being awake. I had good focus and endurance in the gym. Despite weights feeling a bit heavier than usual, I managed to push through a good number of sets/reps at good weight. I still have good energy into the first hour at work, so consistently good.
Just a side note, my schedule has been off due to travel, etc. This week I'm in town all week, and should be able to make it to the gym every morning. We'll see how 5 days in a row affects tolerance.
Again, good pre-wo formula. I'm interested in seeing how Creatine Nitrate would affect the pump. Seems like it would be a nice addition.

I had been using Muscle Marinade with good effects at first, but very quickly built up tolerance to the stims. Good formulation, but pricey.
NO-Shotgun tasted pretty good, but wore on me over time, plus their labeling sucked.
PreSurge was good for focus and creatine, but that was about it.
ASGT I just used the perfect workout kit sample (4 servings), but it didn't do it for me with the taste, stim, or texture.
White Flood made me feel sick when I used to take it.
Animal Pump was great for travel, but didn't do much other than caffeine effect and crash, little real pump effect.
VasoCharge was pretty solid (literally, stuff clumps up), but very basic and tasted meh.
NO-Xplode did nothing for me.
Extreme Caution Labs - Hazard made me sick to my stomach, had to throw the tub I was logging out!
I can't think of the other pre-wo I've used (no Jacked yet), but so far I would put Mesomorph in my top 3 with Muscle Marinade and NO-Shotgun (personal preference there). Were I in the market to buy a pre-wo, and the price was right, I'd go for it. Good workouts on it to date.

so, i think i can say you know your pre workouts, lol.
WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

By the way, another great workout this morning. I could keep pressing out extra reps/sets with less fatigue than usual. I think I ended up doing 8 sets of DL's this morning which is good considering I had just injured my back 3 weeks ago (going too heavy on DLs, duh). Good energy again, stuck with me.

After using Mesomorph consistently for a week, I must say that there was some tolerance build up over the week. However, even with the tolerance it provided energy for my workout and push out some extra sets. Good, solid pre-wo here that won't leave you wanting during or crashed afterwards in the energy department. I'd say the pump isn't the greatest, and I don't think it's a full servings of creatine, but still solid all around. Easy and cheap to supplement creatine or the other stuff (don't need extra BA with this!), so for what Mesomorph is, it delivers.
