    RPM vs. R4W review.


    I recieved 5 RPM capsules as a sample from the Nutraplanet order I had.

    I weight 180lbs which should theoretically have put me at 4 capsules. I wound up taking all 5 capsules as I figured having 1 extra (if I took 4) would be useless.


    RPM gave me a clean stim feeling while I was in the gym. I was actually very tired the day I took it and part of the reason why I use a lot of stims is I workout approx. 9:00pm-10:30pm which is always in the evening after 8 hrs of work.


    I never had any sides from RPM @ 5 capsules, and it took about 25 min to really feel the full effect of it.


    I would compare 5 RPM caps to 1 R4W caps. I know how 1 R4W feels and I know how 2 R4W feels. The 5 RPM caps feels close to 1 R4W caps. I only take 1 R4W cap b/c 2 will keep me up all night and I need just something barely enough to take care of my evening workout.



    R4W is more aggressive and for ppl who read my review before I had some side from it. I can really feel when it hits. RPM is much more mild and subtle even @ 5 caps.

    I could be completely ok to go to bed @ 5 caps on RPM and it is very friendly.

    I am basing this off of one sample of RPM so take it for what it is worth.

    You didn't mention at all how it helped/didn't help you in your workout. I couldn't care less how buzzing it makes me feel. If the workout is more productive then its a success.

    RPM and R4W are just 2 different types of pre-workout supps. I had a good workout with RPM and usually do in general when I take a stim.

    My workouts are just more productive in general when I use stims b/c it keeps me awake and it also blunts pain to a certain extent so I have more to go to failure (or extra reps/sets.)

    Fair enough. I swear by RPM. I love 4-5 caps pre workout. Notice I can get out a few extra reps and the odd extra set. Never tried R4W but if 1 cap is plenty then it may be a lot more cost effective. Only downside to RPM when you normally need 5 caps.

    yeah I only had this one sample, but if I were to use it again I'd take 5 caps. I was expecting to feel some type of jittery feeling off of it, but I never had any sides from it.

    RPM and R4W are both good pre-workout supps.

    RPM and Drive is a nice combo, however Drive is good enough for me. I don't like relying on a supp to give me the edge while working out... That being said... hmmm... I guess I do like having a little extra sometimes, ya know? Of course, I take beta alanine, Drive and PCS pre-workout, but at the same time and dose I would at any other non-workout day. Anti-oxidants are vital at or near the end of a workout IMO no matter what!

    I here ya man. I don't want to rely on a stim or pre workout supp to get me through the next hour or so but once you try some of these things you get the idea in your head that you need them all the time. I love my RPM!

    Even if I have the opportunity during the day (weekends) I rarely lift unless it is dark outside. No one usually is around in the latter portion of the evening so there is less wait, plus I find it more relaxing.

    Everyone here does the whole 'get to the gym right after work' deal so it is flooded from 4:30-7:00pm.

    Yeah, I don't take it before my bicep workouts, because I don't want my arms to be anymore massive than they already are.

    im assuming your experienment is on the differences between the two with respects to energy, and maybe pump. what about the phyto-sarm points on the product in comparison to a test booster?

    I asked about the SARM effect in a previous post with not really any substantial answer.

    R4W has preg, long jack as a test booster.

    RPM has:

    Icariin (50%)
    L-Arginine
    Grape Seed Extract
    (98% Oligometric Proanthyocyanidins)
    Naringin (98% Extract)



    Off the sample I had I didn't feel any 'SARM' effects per se. The stim is caffiene and choc. which is probably the reason why it was more mild vs. R4W which has some yohimbe.


    Different strokes for different folks. The price for R4W is cheaper as of right now and more servings @ 1 capsule/ED vs. 5 RPM/ED so for me cost/benefit would put me at R4W @ 19.99 vs. RPM @ 28.95.



    At the end of the day I still prefer the 'Sour Lemonade' R4W v 6.0 powder over anything else.

    Good points ReaperX. There are so many different stimulant blends out there, we can use these good reviews as insight from shared experiences. A perfect way to help gauge what stimulant product is right for you! Good review. Short, but to the point about it's effects.

    I can't speak about the long term effects of either at this point, but as far as energy and thermogenics go....R4W trumps RPM by a long shot. I don't know if I'd go as far and say is a 1 to 5 ratio, but maybe 2 R4W=5.5-6 RPM.

    So why the hell doesn't R4W get more recognition?!?!?! I'm gunna have to hit NP right now. All the kids these days are talking bout RPM. I'm gunna have to check it out. I cant afford to keep buying bottles if im using 5 a day as much as i love the stuff.

    Because the pills aren't metallic red and Chuck doesn't typically have tons of people doing logs. Drive is a great product for instance and I'm currently using it, but the dosages are very underdosed and i'm taking between 6-9 drive to get effects which makes about a 2-3 bottle cycle. Marketing and hype drive this industry. Take logs with a grain of salt as most of them are hyped up. People typically praise products they are logging in order to hopefully get future free product. Just the nature of this and other sites and by no means any fault of the company.

    6-9 Drive caps? How much do you weigh my friend? I'm 193-199 and I take 6 caps (3 and 3 deal). I felt the focus and energy and libido increase. The rest, I can not attribute to Drive, but it helped in some areas noticably. Gotta love Icaarin!

    RPM isnt bad, but I'd never pay for the product. I'd probably pay $10.00 MAX for a bottle of RPM and not a penny more.

    i get a HUGE thermo effect from 3 R4W, but no so much energy/intensity that i really want. R4W makes my hands and armpits sweat profusely even 5 hours after the gym.

    I have more energy off of 4 RPM, but no thermo effect

    Yeah I never had a thermogenic effect from the 5 RPM I took.

    I'd say 5 RPM is probably 1.5 Rockstar energy drinks in terms of 'energy'.

    This is a picture of the products I've been using,........................ long before Diesel Test Hardcore ever came around.


    v 6.0 in the tub in the picture is still the best IMO.

    Will do mate. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about RPM but it would cost me too much for it to become a staple. R4W should last me a lot longer plus at $20 a pop its worth a try anyway.

    WTF, Reaper, is someone paying you to dis RPM? By all accounts, including my own, RPM rocks, and is flying off the shelves. I've gotten more in terms of recomp and strength from RPM than any other supplement besides creatine and food. It boosts libido, gives massive pumps, and makes me hard, dry, and vascular.

    I've only used R4W once; I **** my brains out, and got a mild stim effect from in. I won't be buying again. It doesn't have the ingredient profile to match RPM's effects in any area but the stim area.

    Glad you found something you like, but how about laying off product bashing?

    not product bashing, product reviewing. Btw, I'm not dissing it, it is a clean energy I get from it, I never said it was bad, I just prefer R4W better. Obviously you prefer RPM, that is ok too.


    some how, some way my threads always turn into fights.
