I bought a jub of DSafter I learned that this preworkout works more in the mind more than the body. What attracted me was the absence of crazy stims (1,3 anyone?) and no high doses of caffeine.
Mixing it: The product mixes well. THere is a bit of substance at the bottom of my shaker but that's with all supplements.
Taste: Not that it should matter much, but the taste was pretty good. Tasted like grape Kool Aid. Was able to drink one scoop with 8oz of water within seconds without so much as a gad reflex.
Cost Effective: It cost me 31.99 and has 44 servings. Even at the max of 2 scoops, it should last you close to 2 months (assuming a consistent 3x/week training schedule.
Does it work?
Here's the thing. This preworkout works more in the mind than anything else. After taking it, you feel like a "better" version of you. Suppose your diet was , you slept 9 hours every single day and had no stresses in the world. Suppose you always woke up on the "right side of the bed", this is how this product will make you feel. You'll feel like you want to work out, and you'll feel like you want to try to break PRs everyday. It almost like confidence in a jug.
If you're looking for a PWO that will turn you into a "crackhead" 45 min into it, look elsewhere. Craze just makes you feel good, like there is nothing you can't do. The focus is great. Pick a good song on the ipod and you'll phase out...just you and the iron.
I took 1.5 scoops and that seems to be my sweet spot. After taking it I peaked at about 45 min, so it takes a little while. I deadlifted on Monday (prior to Craze) and my absolutely best (trying hard can't get another rep) was 315x3. I deadlifted again on Friday (after Craze) and completed 315x5, then 325x5 with some juice left in the tank (could have probably gone heavier). Today, I topped at 335x3. Placebo? Yeah maybe, but doesn't feel like it. I think its the real deal. Since there aren't any real stim effects, I'm hoping I won't build a tolerance anytime soon. The best part? 80mg of caffeine per scoop.
I saw other reviews that said that Craze killed their appetite soon afterwards, I didn't react that way...no change. Also, no change in urination frequency (some said it made them pee too often).
Got any questions? Let me know.
Go to their website and try it out. I think they're giving sample packs. Questions anyone?
