First I want to thank OutsideBacker and AppNut for the opportunity to try out. I was interested to see how this pre-workout was different from the others on the market, and what it could do for me.
I've been lifting for ~10 years now since playing on the Boxing and Rowing teams in my college. Since graduating I kept up with exercise to remain healthy and fit. In the last 3 years I have become more serious about lifting and supplementation. Now I am preparing for my first NPC Bodybuilding contest this April.
I have tried all sorts of pre-workout drinks because I lift in the morning, waking up around 5AM. I need the extra kick in the butt to open my eyes by the time I get to the gym. My top 10 list of pre-workout preference is now this:
2. AppNut Lit-Up
3. Purus Labs
4. **** N2KTS
5. VPX NO Shotgun
6. Gaspari SP250
7. Gaspari SPMax
8. USP Labs Jack3d
9. Controlled Labs White Flood
I go for energy as the number 1 requirement for a pre-workout. Any ergogenic aids or pumps are a bonus. I am a stim junkie and my tolerance builds quickly, so it takes a lot to get me going and even more to keep me going!
