Thank you to southpaw23 and everyone at ANS for the opportunity to try out some samples of the pre-workout Ritual. I have used a lot of pre-workouts in my day. I have tried
Dosing: , NO-Xplode Ignite, Jack3d(old formula), Jack3d Micro, 1M.R., , C4, Ripped Freak pwo, Amino Energy, C4, (old and new), and so far. I would say that ANS Ritual is definitely in the top 5 of all of these. I tend to be pretty non-sensitive to stimulants due to all of my previous usage, but I had great experiences with Ritual.
Recommended dosing is 1 scoop. Each packet was one scoop. I tried one scoop the 1st workout and then I tried two servings.
Taste is decent. Not the best tasting I have had, but maybe that is because I am not a huge fan of green
apple? It did not have a weird after taste to me like so many products do. It was very refreshing, especially
with cold water.
Ritual mixes very well, with not a lot of product still at the bottom of my shaker after drinking. No wasting
I had very good pumps on Ritual. My legs and chest felt like they were going to bust out of my clothes. One thing I always focus on when taking pre-workouts is the effect on back pumps. Sometimes certain products get my back too pumped where it is uncomfortable and prevents me from finishing or doing certain lifts. Ritual's pump very comfortable I felt a strong mind muscle connection.
Each workout I was zoned in on what I had to do get done, and I did it. It also helped my focus after my training sessions as I would study for med school. Huge plus here.
The energy was amazing. Did not have any jitters or nervousness.
I recommend Ritual to anyone looking for amazing focus, energy, pumps. I would have rated Ritual higher if I had liked the taste better. Everything else was great but the taste didn't do it for me. Maybe if I tried another flavor of Ritual my rating would be close to 10.
