  1. Thumbs up ** AK47 took DS Craze **


    12 hours ago I took my first scoop of Craze, I had a couple of servings
    left of another prewo but tomorrow would've been low volume,
    and I wanted to test it in the more complete and complex
    wo day: Traps/UpperBack/Shoulders.
    With this workout I start with very high volume, big weights
    on the shrugs, upper back sets, DC protocol implementation, tons of burn sets/supersets,
    quite a variety of exercises, to end with high reps and less weight
    for the last sets on shoulders.
    Perfect to test a new prewo.

    Let's start saying:

    This product is - hands down - THE best prewo I've ever tried,
    And I tried a lot.

    Taste: who gives a damn?!?!
    With what it does
    to me it could taste like monkey a## and I woulnd't care
    Tastes like grape

    Mixability: really? Whatever.
    I would swallow it without water even if it was glass paper residue
    to get the effects I got today, but it mixes just fine.

    Focus/Nootropic:
    First thing I wrote was "let's start with the best part",
    then I thought about the workout and there's no way
    this, or the energy or the focus can be considered the best
    or the least noticeable or effective side.
    It works as a whole, synergy and balance between its benefits
    are just plain *perfect*
    After 10 minutes from the ingestion a barely noticeable "waves"
    hit my mind, no rush, no jitter, something at first (being the first dose)
    I could not explain and I cannot better describe (now) as a door in my
    mind opening.
    I couldn't wait 30 min so I went in and started the warm up.
    There's no way I'll be able to put down in words what this thing
    does, really, but I'll try.



    You're alone with yourself, NOTHING matters but your next set,
    your next rep, the focus is just incredible, concentration is off the hook
    and it's *good*, you're not distracted, you don't fix a random spot on
    the wall, you don't waste ONE SECOND between sets, you are a machine,
    programmed to do what you have to do in the most efficient way possible.
    And you do it. Your mind KNOWS that you can do anything and it MAKES your
    body follow your will, which is stronger than ever.
    There's no rage and no useless aggression, that will waste energy,
    you gather all you have, calmly, and you explode it on the sets.
    Steady, strong, perfect form, mind-muscle connection NEVER leaves you
    not even for one split second.

    What it does is: it takes DOUBT away. You know you're gonna lift that,
    you know you're stronger than anything can be put on the rack, there is no doubt
    in your head.
    Someone compared it to the movie "limiteless", that's dead on.
    There's a new you in the gym and you really wonder how the hell you did
    workout without it before.
    I react in a weird way to some nootropics, but here, there wasn't even a trace
    of a bad side effect, just perfect concentration and focus, addressed to the workout.
    At first, I was paying attention to its effects being the first time I tired it,
    but after few minutes into the wo I started to forget that and "work with it"
    and that's when you really SEE the tunnel. Workout will never be the same now.


    Energy/Recovery:
    Your mind can do anything, but what about your body?
    I broke something like 5 PR in one session, I added so many reps and sets and threw in
    so many exercises today that I can't even start to count.
    My sessions are long, this one was just slightly longer than usual but my efficency was
    something just unbelievable.
    There was no fu#king around, no distractions and the strength..
    I don't know how to describe that, I push myself - for those who don't know my habits
    and routines - to oblivion usually, more often then not almost passing out and ending
    on the floor every wo. So if you asked me before today I would have told you
    I'm at my max, I cannot push myself more than this there is no way, I make SURE about it
    everyday or I don't leave the gym.
    I was wrong. If i tell you the weight increases I experienced today you won't believe me,
    same for reps. My previous PR on BB shrug became a 10 reps sets.
    I did the whole routine almost TWO times, because I was keep adding sets, and reps and
    not feeling tired at all.

    Was I stimulating the muscles or just moving weight?
    For me is ALL about stimulation, I don't care about the weight,
    I need to feel the muscle work the way I know or weight just don't matter.
    Today I squeezed every fibre of my muscle AT EVERY REP. Something I really hope
    you all experience because it was orgasmic.

    Recovery: What is that?
    There was no recovery because there was no fatigue.
    There was just going thru an exercise to another.
    I actually sat THREE times only for a total amount of probably 3 minutes.
    Not believable. I picked up the weight and I was expecting a certain resistance,
    it just WASN'T THERE. Hence, I kept adding and adding..
    No panting, just precise maximum muscle stimulation.
    After 12 hours from the wo (when I'm writing this)
    I can also add the following: ZERO crash, quote the opposite.
    Despite this is my third heavy volume day (chest/tri, deadlift/squats/abs, Traps/UpperBack/Shoulders) I felt full of energy for the rest of the day, not only, my concentration at work was great I was very productive and
    just got tons of sh#t done! What one could ask more than this?

    Pump: I couldn't care less, and I DIDN'T care during nor after the wo,
    I didn't care how I looked, I just wanted to go on. With that said,
    my shoulders were so puffed up that the seam of my shirt was on my TRAPS
    instead of on my delts. The product itself doesn't pump you up, YOU PUMP
    yourself up.
    This product throw the whole concept of pump straight in the bin and opens up
    a whole new game. Really.

    Side Effects:
    None. I read few posts speaking of hart rate speeding or blurred vision,
    none of that I experienced. My heart rate was perfect, blood was flowing
    nicely and my whole body felt just empowered.
    I had 10 seconds of some sort of blurred vision at the beginning when the "wave"
    hit me, barely noticeable, and like I said, 10 seconds, not even.
    Actually I think about that as something I will look forward to, it wasn't annoying,
    for me (knowing now what it is) is the signal that you entered the zone.

    Price/Serving:
    One FLAT scoop, nothing added for the best
    workout of my life. 'nuff said. 11/10

    Overall Experience:
    This is by far, the best SUPPLEMENT I've ever tried in 10+ years of training,
    and I tried a lot. It simply puts to shame the whole market, for the most part
    built on hype with no real results.
    In a time in which you have to GUESS what most products are doing to you -
    because they just don't work but you want to believe they do - this makes me
    look at my self full of product in a different way.
    This is the PROOF that is possible to enhance your performance to a whole
    new level, in a way I couldn't even imagine would be possible.
    Is the SINGLE PRODUCT that made the biggest, most noticeable difference/improvement
    among all the products, stacks, protocols, bs that I've tried so far.
    Hands down, Craze is a revolution in the supplements market.
    I feel sorry for whoever seems not to respond in the same way I did to this,
    because this is not just a step up in terms or results and performance:
    Craze renewd my love and passion for training.

    Chapeau to Driven Sports, a brand that already had my respect,
    a brand that sees Lean Xtreme in its line which was already my fav
    fat burner and one of the top 3 overall sups for me, with Craze,
    you really did something guys, what you achieved with this product
    is remarkable.

  7. I knew you'd feel that way too after using it. My experience with Craze mirrors your. Word is, DS, is working on a stim/fatburner with some properties from Craze formula. If it's anything like Craze, I can't wait!

  8. Love this review!

    That last part saddens me.

    Tell me - whenever that will be out - that it will NOT replace LX, right?
    I don't know how would I do without that. Altho' after Craze, I can't do anything but
    trust you

  12. Sounds amazing but do these effects last through your entire bottle or diminish with continued use?. I'm interested.

  13. I just took one scoop so far, I suppose that is best to cycle it (1 or 2 tubs and break?)
    as pretty much any other sup, but I think it would be safe to say
    if DS put it out is because is perfect, even in that aspect

  14. Ok my second workout with Craze.
    Today was Back day. Volume and failure are usually the lite motif
    of this (errr... every?) day.


    Took 1 flat scoop 40 min and BCAA 10gr 20min after/20min before starting the wo.
    I will start saying that each and every (awesome) effect that I've experienced in the first day have
    been confirmed, which re-reading my first review would def be "'nuff said"
    but I wanna go into some details that I noticed.


    First thing is an advice I meant to write in the first review but I forgot: with Craze (more than any other
    sup/prewo I noticed) you NEED to keep yourself hydrated all the time.
    I don't know if it's just me but my body does require plain *water* when on Craze.
    I sip my 15gr of BCAA during the wo in a 700ml shaker, and usually I have to add water to it
    a coupla times because my sessions are very long. So let's say usually I drink at LEAST
    1.5liters of liquid during my wo, sometimes more.


    With Craze I felt the need of plain water, so I got another shaker for it.
    I noticed as soon as I didn't drink for a while my performance was leaning to fatigue,
    drinking water (or the bcaa) was immediately getting me back on track 100%.
    Listen to your body, who took Craze already knows how easy that is since your mind is
    really connected with it.


    This last line brings me to another detail worth mentioning, and a difference between this
    wo and the previous with Craze (Traps/UpperBack/Shoulders): while the previous sees a great variety of exercises, spin off, different grips, high volume sets followed by supersets etc.. on Back day
    is mostly volume, big weights, solid, compound movements. It's somehow slower.
    I mentioned the first wo there was pretty much no rest, very lil, because there was no fatigue really,
    well this one was a bit different.
    With the really high volume and the compound exercises your body tells you exactly how much to
    rest and when to hit the weights again in order to be able to generate the force you need,
    with that said, recovery is still much faster than without Craze, like a lot faster.
    The mind-body connection is something really hard to explain.
    You *know* exactly the rythm of the workout, and it's pretty much steady the whole time.
    Even the music plays a role here, I felt going for heavy and slow stuff to better fit
    the mood and the workout.
    It might sound silly but is not. If you work with Craze (as opposed to mentally waiting for it to
    do the job for you, which it'll happen anyway..) the effect is enhanced.


    As I said, I confirm my first experience with it 100%, so no need to go over it again,
    I hit a PR on V-bar BB row, went over my previous by 20lbs, weights went up
    on every heavy exercise, more reps, more sets.. I am just plain stronger, much stronger.


    Someone said is a calm storm, well it is. You pay extreme attention to the form,
    and holy hell the muscle stimulation is really something, even for someone like me (and most of us)
    that usually does pay attention to form and mind-muscle connection, I've never felt this bonded before.


    Today I really pushed myself, like overload pushing, because I wanted to see were the hell was "the wall"
    because I couldn't seem to find it. I stopped after a ridiculously heavy, negative-focused, set of 1 arm DB rows,
    when the pain was excruciating (love that) and I almost passed out as soon as I dropped the weight.
    I can't even start to tell you how much I loved it. (if it wasn't clear, I like to annihilate my own self, f#ck the protocols, and the "out of the gym in one hour because of test/cortisol bla bla.. I like it this way)
    Training became much more fun for me.

  15. I also noticed hydration as a key issue, I down two scoops with about 20+ oz of water and then bring 32oz of 70g carb

    ? not sure i'm following you on the carb thing
    I meant during wo, absolutely necessary with Craze much more than with anything else
    to make sure you drink plenty of water. The performance itself is affected by this in my experience

    No I get yah, just mentioned what else I've found to help. I lifted for about 3 hours today and went through almost 100oz of water altogether lol

  19. So I guess I know what preworkout I need to try lol.

  20. Easy does it big fella. You can't push yourself 100 percent every workout or you will end up over-training. Are you sure the feeling of being about to pass out is not from the craze raising your blood pressure too high compounded by the increase in blood pressure from exercise?

  21. Quote Originally Posted by AutoKal47 View Post

    no worries compadre

    I should start using BCAAs with training but right now its more cost effective for me to just buy Gatorade and I'm training fasted so I should get something in

    What BCAAs do you use again?

    Oh no, I'm sure it wasn't craze, I'm very familiar with the feeling.
    It happens to me at least once every two weeks, especially on back day or deadlift day
    For some reason, my back is the body part that lately (since my Ebol run a month and half ago)
    showed the biggest change, it got *inches* bigger and weights on heavy back exercises went
    up like crazy, couple that with the fact that I love to feel pain on my back (as opposed to leg pain which
    is almost crippling, ya know.. you walk around like you need the bathroom badly lol)
    but I do that, I overload a lot.. Explode in the positive and then drag the negative until I really can't take it
    anymore, and sometimes I do get light headed..

    This specific one was last set of 1 arm DB row, I love that one (speaking of dragging the neg)
    and today I went up with weights on all sets, ended up in the last one with 158lbs dumbbell
    (weight converted from Kg so it might be a lil off, 72 Kg), not much for the big guys
    but that's my weight, did 4 rep x arm, then DC protocol, picked it up again
    after a rest-pause and there you go.
    Actually, now that I think about it, when that happens is almost always with the DC
    rest-pause rep(s), bad ass technique tho', it really tears you apart.

    But I don't go 101% every wo, on Wednesday I have low volume

    Makes sense, altho' for me they make a hell of a difference in recovery and endurance
    during wo.

    For BCAA i've been always sticking to this: I buy 3Kg/tubs bulk unflavored and 3Kg/tubs of Xtend,
    then I mix them 1:1. This way I get 6Kg of flavored BCAA and save some cash

    Actually, Xtend flavors are so strong for me than even 2 scoops
    in a 700ml shaker is too strong, so yeah.. win win for me.

  24. You guys wait for me to have the time to tell you details about Sunday's workout: Chest day, my favorite.


    I don't do 1RM really, for me my 1RM is what I can lift in the last heavy set for the compound movement of the given day,
    flat bench press in this case.
    For now I will just say this: I mentioned before that I was hitting my triceps twice a week lately,
    Sun and Wed because they were holding me back on my bench press,
    I hit a plateau, it was more than a month that I was aiming for 3 plates and couldn't do it.


    Well, yesterday weights went up for all the sets, and my "old" max/heaviest one - my 5th - became a steady 5 reps (usually 2),
    the 5th went from 270lbs to 292lbs, 2 steady rep + 1/2. Rest-pause and another one..


    Weights don't lie. This is real strength increase in my book.


    But there's more, on both the wo and the appetite, since Sun is also my
    refeed day. Update later..
