    Experience: lifting for about 5 years except for 6 months last year when I had a lot of surgeries on my knee


    Ingredients:
    Nitric Oxide and Carnosine Fusion:

    3-Aminopropionic Acid, , L-Citrulline dl-Malate, 2-amino-5-Guanidinovaleric Acid 6500mg

    Muscle Cell Volumizing Matrix

    Di-Creatine Malate, L-Taurine, , Ascorbic acid, Creatinol-O- Phosphate, Agamatine Sulfate 4500mg

    FINAL REVIEW - Watermelon Prodigy

    First, I'd like to thank PNI for this amazing opportunity, and to apologize for not being able to stick past the requested 14 day log. School has been so damn hectic and I really don't have the time to write logs everyday. I honestly wish I had been able to keep a full 30-day log because this product, moreover, this company deserves the best. The rep(s) are just great and helpful. A small company like this is great because they are going to establish a base clientele on the merits of their products, rather than just a big name.

    On to the review

    Taste: This stuff tastes good. It's not particularly sweet, it is more of a sour/tart watermelon. It's delicious and not cloyingly sweet. I loved the taste and it's up there with the best tasting pre workouts I've ever had. Solid flavor and refreshing. Mixed with anywhere from 2oz-16oz and it's still good no matter what.

    Pump: The pump on this stuff is great. It's, at minimum, as good as agmatine. Pumps are fun but not a huge deal with me as their mostly cosmetic. I've had my ROM restricted on some workouts due to the crazy pumps I get.

    Endurance/Strength: My endurance seemingly went up on this all around. I didn't start a cycle until 3 weeks into using this stuff so I feel like the endurance was due this product as the cycle would not have kicked in yet. Strength also went up and I hit a few PRs on lifts.

    Mixability: As mentioned, it mixes INCREDIBLY well. I threw this in 2oz of water and there was no grit after some shaking. It really mixes fast and dissolves quickly.

    Focus/Energy: Now this is where the product truly shines. BA tingles kick in on an empty stomach, not always if one has eaten. The focus is difficult to describe, it is a mixture of tunnel-vision, a strong desire to just be aggressive, and euphoria. I feel like I'm alpha-male and unstoppable on this. It's just incredible. I've never felt anything like this type of focus and invincibility on just a pre-workout. It's simply awesome.

    Overall: Best pre-workout that I have ever used. Ever. It gives a determination and drive that is unparalleled to anything on the market. Truly a unique and incredible supplement. I see myself buying this over my protein powder on my supplement list. To me the benefits and effects on this are more noticeable and enjoyable than anything non-hormonal.

    Energy: Good energy throughout the workout. Not much of a stim feeling, just very focused. Almost like a had tunnel vision or was just ignoring everything around me. Focused well on the lifts

    Pump: Pictures are below, but pump was great. It almost started to hurt.

    Endurance: May have been a placebo effect but I felt like I didn't need as much time for recovery. I only wait 30-45 seconds between sets but it seemed like more than enough. The last set was as strong as the first

    Taste: I'll admit I was a little nervous when I saw one of the logs talking about blueberry. He said it was alright, well....Watermelon is f*cking delicious. It was the second best pre-workout I've ever tasted. No stomach issues (like SuperDump)

    Mixability: mixes very well in water. used about 6oz.

    Overall: Tastes great, amazing focus, great pumps. Pumps feel on par with agmatine or creatine nitrate. I actually like this more than my focus XT + agmatine combo so far. The focus alone was great.


    Workout

    Biceps:
    EZ curl 80 4x10
    EZ preacher 70 4x10
    Concentration curl 30 4x10


    Triceps:
    Pushdown 140 4x10
    Tricep press 215 4x10
    Close grip bench 185 4x10

    Elbows were hurting so I backed off a little. Definitely had more in the tank, joints are just overworked from digging foundations all week

    Pics: This is my first time posting pics so the posing and lighting might be a little off. I'll try new rooms as I go on until I find one that shows the results the best.

    Awesome review my friend. Watermelon is by far my personal favorite as well.

    Thanks for the compliment. I'm like the smallest guy at the gym I go to, so I feel tiny all the time.

    I was unable to get to the gym from last June-December due to multiple knee surgeries. I've been lifting for 7 months straight again and it feels great.

    True, keep the head up man , you look good honestly. We all want to be bigger, but remember, training smart and with continuous progress (albeit slow) is best . I already surpassed in strength all the kids who used to make fun of me at my gym hehe , they Can't Deadlift 185lbs for their life lol. And they certainly can't do 100lb DBs for Kroc Rows !

    Time pays off! Keep your head high, and if u want some help with the diet HMU, and Ricky can help yah out with the workout! (howwedo)

    A big part is that I go to a juicehead gym where everyone's just giant. I'm happy with my progress and my strength is great. Calories stay at 2200-2500 calories with 40/30/30 protein carb fat macros

    Day 2

    Took a full scoop today and didn't take anything else with stimulants. Full scoop mixed extremely well in 6-8oz water. Tasted good still, maybe a tiny bit more chemical taste noticeable but still tasted good. Would probably be better with a little more water.

    Energy: I really don't know how to explain this as "energy" as most people are used to the 1,3 and caffeine energy that is that shaky stimmed feeling. This is so vastly different. I don't really feel any stim effect in that way, but feel like I can go forever in the gym. Literally my muscles are at failure and I still want to lift. The focus is ridiculous. I will have to drink it on my way to the gym from now on as I didn't like the focus feeling while driving. It really does give a tunnel-vision/zoned-in feeling which wasn't great for that. Once I got to the gym it was AMAZING. I loved the focus there. Workout and cardio flew by and felt like I had energy left.

    Pump: Did shoulders and abs today so pump wasn't super noticeable but shoulders were pumped up. Also went heavier than normal today.

    Endurance: Cardio was a breeze, lifting went the full 4 sets without any real struggle and used heavier weights. Really feel like you can push yourself more on this and not struggle. Similar to how gakic was.

    Overall: Really liking this so far. It's the most focus I've ever felt at the gym and the feeling is awesome. It also seems to boost my mood while I'm there. No crash afterwards. Only thing I didn't like was the tunnel vision feeling while driving, about 20 minutes after ingesting. No complaints otherwise.

    Workout: Shoulders and Abs

    Shoulders

    seated DB press: 50s 4x8
    Lateral DB raises: 20s 4x10
    Reverse pec deck: 80 4x10

    Abs
    crunches 4x failure
    hammer-strength crunches 100 4x10
    Flutter kicks 4xfailure
    Planks (regular and each side) 3x1.5min for each

    Cardio

    45min 3.5mph@10% incline

    This is what I want to hear. Good stuff. Going to definitely give this a shot soon.

    Day 3: Back

    Took a full scoop again and taste was still good. This is the one of the more drinkable pre-workouts. Don't have to chug it down and don't cringe while drinking it, in fact, it actually is a decent flavoring, probably only eclipsed by Novem. That being said it's effects are the BEST

    Energy/Focus: Incredible. The focus and drive this provides while lifting is great. I really hated some of the pre-workouts that got you jacked-up on stims. This is so different. You just wanna focus, lift, and push yourself nonstop. It's awesome and by far the best aspect of this stuff. I really can't say enough about this. Cardio feels great on it too without the crazy heart-rate from stimulants.

    Pump: Hit back so no pics but I felt like that weights were lighter and back felt full. I have a disproportional back anyways that is just so wide and thick.

    Endurance: Lifts were heavier than normal by maybe 5lbs. Didn't push it too hard as my hand is cut and difficult to grip really good with.

    Overall: Pump isn't very important to me but it is good. I really would take this for the focus alone, it's unlike anything I've felt before. To me that's what really sets it apart from anything else.

    Back

    Lat pulldown 170 4x8
    Close-grip row 160 4x12
    Bent-over rows 100 4x12
    Rack pulls 275 4x10

    Cardio 3.5mph @10% = 530 calories burned

    Day4/5

    Day 4 was cardio. Just used half a scoop. The focus is great. Love it

    Day 5

    Full scoop today and loving it. Taste is still good and I like that I don't have to chug it to enjoy it.

    Focus/Energy: Didn't notice as much focus today as before, but I was exhausted due to my sleep apnea mask falling off last night and working in the sun all day. Still made cardio a breeze and I hit a few higher lifts than normal. That being said it was still great.

    Pump: Chest looked HUGE after benching, but I unfortunately don't have any pics because the gym was packed and I didn't wanna interrupt my workout to take pics. I like to stay in the zone the whole time.

    Endurance: Was able to lift a few more reps than normal at the weights I was using. Felt great and the next day DOMS really shows how heavy I really am going. You don't feel spent but the next day you feel like you have an incredible workout.

    Overall: This is my favorite pre-workout yet and I don't see this changing.

    Chest:

    DB flat bench: 50s 1x15, 90s 3x10, 100s 1x8
    DB incline bench: 50s 1x15, 75s 3x10
    Cable fly: 40 each side 4x15

    Cardio: 40min 4mph@12.5% (it's amazing how easy cardio feels and flies by now)

    Day 6

    Hit quads and calves today. Haven't really hit quads in almost a year as I had 3 knee surgeries last year and it still is iffy for exercises. I just recently was cleared to work the joint with weights.

    Focus/Energy: Felt in the zone while hitting the weights. Was a good feeling as I was uncertain how I'd perform doing a bunch of exercises I haven't done in a long time.

    Pump: Pump wasn't noticeable in my legs but it never is. My calves did look big and pumped though before cardio.

    Endurance: Felt good and surprisingly did more than I expected

    Overall: Still loving this stuff everyday. I don't know what else to say. It's just awesome

    Quads/Calves

    Hack squats 245 4x12 (really can't do this with my knee still)
    Front squats 225 4x10 - never done these before but it felt so much better on my knee
    Leg Press 270 4x10

    Calf raises 130 4 x failure
    seated calf raises 90 4 x failure

    Day 7/8

    Day 7 was a full rest. Swimming in the pool for 30 minutes to recover muscles but keep blood flowing.

    Day 8

    Energy/Focus: Never wanted to stop. Was in the zone again. I love this focus. I can't imagine how much it'll suck when I run out.

    Pump: Thought my arms were going to explode. Biggest pump I've ever felt lifting arms. Unfortunately I had to go out to dinner right from the gym after and didn't get to take pics at home.

    Endurance: Few PR lifts and I felt like I could keep going. It was a great workout and felt amazing. Muscles failed longed before my energy started to dip.

    Arms


    standing ez curl 50 1x15, 80 4x10
    Hammer curls 30 1x15, 35 1x10, 40 2x10 (PR)
    Cable curls 35 4x10

    Tricep pressdown 130 4x10
    Skullcrushers 70 4x10 (elbows can't really take this workout for some reason)
    Close grip bench 205 3x10 (PR)

    Cardio: 45 minutes 3.5mph@13.0% ---I really think the focus is important here. I HATE CARDIO and this makes it go by so fast.

    Took a scoop on an empty stomach. A little too much BA tingles, didn't really like it.

    Focus/Energy: Definitely stronger on an empty stomach with a full scoop. This was the first time I've done it that way. Really hit hard. Hit a few PRs on my shoulder today.

    Pump: Pump was solid. Same as always

    Endurance: As I said, hit PRs and felt like I was unstoppable in the gym. Then intense cardio session.

    Overall: Hit PRs and felt stronger than I ever have for shoulders. Didn't want to leave the gym. Seriously was trying to find lifts to do without overdoing it because I just wanted to keep going,

    Shoulders

    DB Military Press: 50's 1x10, 55's 2x10, 60's 1x10 (PR)
    Lateral raises 30's 4x10
    Reverse pec deck 100 4x10 (PR)
    DB Shrugs 85's 4x15

    I've never been big on caring about the pumps, not that I don't like them, theyre just not my priority. I think the biggest seller on this is the focus and increases feeling of strength. You wanna just lift nonstop and throw weight around

    Good, hit back today. Used my gym basement so I don't know the weights on the stacks because they're friggin numbered 1-20. I took it today on a full stomach and have to say that empty is where it's at.

    Overall: This is still my favorite pre-workout. Felt strong as hell and never wanna leave the gym when I take this. Always trying to find one more exercise to throw in because I just feel so alpha and focused. This will become a staple in my workout regimen

    It's a four stack machine, actually very nice. Never really use it. It was my parents

    Just got a root canal and the pain was flaring and couldn't open mouth beyond a half inch (think the nerves from the shots were aggravated)
