So Today, I had a Mudathlon Obstacle Course Race.
Took a double scoop and completed the race, but the end I felt like I was just getting warmed up.
Went to lunch and drove 2 hours home, then decided it was gym time. Took another double scoop and hit the gym.
Had amazing energy and stamina. Could have stayed at the gym the rest of the night.

Pump honestly seems to be hit and miss for me with this product. However it may be ralated to my diet as well. If I take in a good amount of carbs prior to lifting my pump is there. If I dip my carbs lower the pump is minimal.
Focus has been great throughout this entire log. I'll write up a full comprehensive review when I finish my log.
I will say that I have recommended this product to several friends to try. I recieved 2 sample packs in the mail and I have handed those out already.

Final review for Performax PowerMax PreWorkout
I would like to start by saying all information concluded below are my own opinions and experiences. In no way, was I paid, or coerced into providing a biased review for this product. This review is based on the recommended 2 scoops.
I'd like to thank Performax and NickSox15 for the opportunity to review and log this product.
My current phase for last 2 months has been cutting. I was given the chance to try out PowerMax. Given that its supposed to be a low-stim, high performance product, I jumped at the opportunity to test it. As we all know most preworkout supplements rely heavily on caffeine for the energy boost. That's all well and dandy but what a lot of people don't realize is that that huge spurt of caffeine energy can convert to cortisol. Cortisol triggers body fat. That's a no no for me right now.
The ingredients are typical of most PWO's, with B Vitamins, creatine, vasodilators, and other stimulants. Another ingredient is Advantra Z. I had to look this up and found directly from the manufactures website that its a thermogenic formula that's supposed to help with energy utilization, and amino acid absorption.
I will break this review down into a few parts here for easier reading.
Performax easily mixed with smaller and larger amounts of water than required on the label. I was impressed with the grit free texture and was easily indigestible. Being easily mixable made taking double scoops easier will less water.
Taste was good. It was a bit like a fruit punch koolaide. It wasn't the best tasting PWO nor was it the worst.
The pump with performax seemed to be hit or miss for me. What was noticeable was when I would eat a good large lunch and then took my performax I was getting huge pumps. If I didn't eat as much the pumps were less noticeable.
One thing that remained constant through the entire log was the stamina increase from the product. I could easily speed hours at the gym and still have the endurance to continue training. I've never gotten that from any other PWO.
The energy I got from this product was different from any other PWO I have taken. First and foremost when they advertise “clean energy”, it really is. You don't get a huge blast of energy to the face right away. Instead, you get slow controlled energy release. This energy kind of sneaks up on you as your workout continues. You find yourself on set 5 with more energy than you had at set 1 and 2. This means that your able to push harder with heavier weight.
Overall it was a great product. I liked the fact that I didn't get a face full of energy right away and it didn't have a huge amount of caffeine to get me all stimmed out. Another great thing that I didn't mention before is that there was never an energy crash and I didn't have any issue will sleep. The only thing that was kind of a con, was that the pumps seemed to only when I ate a good meal prior. This isn't necessarily a bad thing but during my cut phase it kind of was a downer since I wasn't eating a ton of calories. I would probably try this product again through my bulk phases to see if the results change. (starts Aug 1) I feel like my workouts were more effective while running this product due mostly to the stamina increase that I got throughout the entire log. Again this is far and away the best product I have taken for increased stamina throughout my workouts.
I have already recommended this product to a number of friends to try. Especially those whom are looking for something that doesn't hinder sleep and are looking for long lasting energy throughout their workouts. In fact, I gave away both trial packs that I had received in the mail, and gave away a few scoops from my own stash.
