First off thanks to Appnut for sending me a sample of this. It's always nice to get to try something before buying a whole tub of it.
So a little background on what I did here. I tried this Thursday night which is normally a rest day for me but I had to go to the gym Thursday because of some family obligations on Friday. I was extremely tired when I got home from work so I was happy to see the sample in my mailbox when I got home.
All good up until this point. So I mixed it up.
Taste: 10/10 Stuff's delicious! Cherry flavor. Kind of odd consistency compared to what I'm used to. It's a little thicker but not like protein thick. Bright! My kids were like "I want that"! **** is bright red. LOL.
Mix: 8/10 Mixed very easy in a glass of water with a fork. (My usual pwo system) Got a little "frothy" on top but no graininess.
O.K. so here's where I screwed up. (Did I mention how tired I was?) So I read the whole package at least twice and still never noticed the 2 servings thing. I dumped the whole thing and chugged it.
Focus: 10/10 This has to be a strong point for this product. I really like focus from these type of products. Too many preworkouts stim me out but overpower my focus. This is a definite plus for this one!
Energy: 6/10 Despite the fact that I sucked down double I didn't really have a lot of energy. Not the stim energy I'm used to anyway. To be fair, as tired as I was I'm not sure anything would have given me a ton of energy.
Strength: 8/10 Despite not having any energy I had no issue hitting my weights which I usually would being this tired. I have to assume that in a normal state it would be great.
: My was horrible. Again I was tired so that could have been the issue. Also, see next section.
2 servings was definitely too much for me! My heart was POUNDING by the time I got to the gym. In that state I lose my breath much quicker and suffers. Then of course theirs the "I'm going to have a heart " feeling. Most likely too much caffeine for me at that dose.
I wish I would have seen that so I could try it at one serving to see how it works for me.
I had to take a test later that night and my focus was still strong at 9pm after dosing this at 5. The other issue I had was I couldn't get to sleep at 11...or 12...or 1! LOL. I got up and took some Need2sleep and it knocked me down. Slept fine after. Again, I would attribute this to the dose. My bad. Wish I had one more sample to try it right.
Overall seems like a really solid product. I like that it's different from the other preworkouts out there. I always workout in the evening though so I would have to test out the sleep factor before I could make it a regular.
