Alphamine (252 Grams)

5 out of 5 rating for Alphamine (252 Grams)
So I'm definitely no stranger to this forum, and lifting/nutrition in general. That being said, earlier this year I had a TON of personal things coming up (work, women, etc) that pretty much destroyed my diet, kept me out of the gym longer than necessary, and ultimately left me gaining a TON of unwanted fat. Enter Alphamine....
Nutrition & Exercise Plan:
Prior to beginning Alphamine there was literally NO structure to my diet. Training was still decent, i made it to the gym 4x a week most of the time, and still performed my usual compound based moderate intensity/moderate volume "bodybuilding" routine. Once starting Alphamine, I kept workout intensity up, but I began to put a structure back into my diet. Nothing crazy, i just switched to eating 2200-2300 calories per day, low carb, & i included a carb binge every 5-6 days.
Alphamine First Thoughts:
Upon first dosing Alphamine, the first thing I noticed was how easily it mixed & how great it tasted. Like, i seriously HATE the typical flavors of all powdered supplements, but not Alphamine.
Next, and the thing that stood out the most, was the HUGE suppression to my appetite. I would wake up around 8am, dose my alphamine, and not even realize I hadnt eaten until 1-2pm. Because of this, I actually FELL into an intermittent fasting program. The smooth energy from Alphamine made buzzing through my typical workday amazing, and the diet was AMAZING. Seriously, who doesnt want to just gorge on 2k cals in one sitting every day and LOSE FAT!?
Once I became acclimated to intermittent fasting, i began breaking my fasts around 2pm, just so i wouldnt be training on empty at my typical gym session (6-7PM). Before & Afters
This is the part that amazed myself, seriously. With the dieting being so casual this time around, I couldnt believe at how lean this has gotten me. Also, I didnt lose ANY muscle or strength! Alphamine needs to be a staple in all of your future cuts![IMG]http://anabolicminds.com/forum/attachment.php?attachment****64 653&d=1345582241[/IMG]

ALPHAMINE (Fruit Punch) Review
Alright so I ordered alphamine and it arrived yesterday. I completed my first day worth of dosing and this was my experience.
Being a third shift worker I woke up at 5 PM. Then checked my tracking number to make sure the delivery date is still posted for Thursday, which it was! I usually work-out at around 6 PM so I started some coffee and waited anxiously for the delivery guy. Sat down to check up on AM and sip on a cup of joe. Six oclock comes around and 2 cups of coffee were down the hatch, at this point I was getting very anxious and worried the truck would not show up before I left for the gym. Decided to pour another cup of coffee and continue to wait it out. At about 6:15 I get the usual UPS supplement knock on the apt door and jump straight out of my seat to the door. There sits a small box with the goodies and here is where the journey begins!
6:30PM, I open up this cool looking tub (I have always been a fan of the cool looking containers PES uses and alphamine definitely did not let me down there) and what do I see? A deep red colored powder that just appears potent! Being so excited and ready to experience the true alphamine greatness I disregarded the 1 scoop first dose recommendation and jumped straight to 1 and 1/2 scoops. The label says to mix 4-5 ounces of water per scoop but being that I could smell a very strong hint of fruit punch I decided to go with 10 ounces of water for the scoop and a half. This being that fruit punch is a flavor this is hard to get right without being too strong or too dull. To my surprise the taste was just right but I had watered it down just a tad. Still had a very good taste both going down and an after taste that left you craving more! The product mixed incredibly well too, I put it in a shaker with the water and gave it a quick few shakes and the product had blended perfectly.
Now comes the best part. 6:45 comes around and I finally get on the road to the gym. At this point the energy effects were already very noticeable and I had a euphoric feeling that really had me ready to get in the gym. I get to my gym at about 7PM and as I'm handing the lady my check-in tag I notice my hand is shaking a bit. At this point the rush was overwhelming and I had to get to the bench. It was chest day and I was about to murder the weights I could just feel it! Hurried through a couple mins of stretches and warm-up sets and bam the beast was unleashed. Worked my way up with the normal warm up sets and got to where my working sets come into play. Started with 225 and pumped out what seemed to be a really easy 5 reps, at this point I notice a guy that works with me is in near where I was so I grab him and tell him I'm going for a PR so I need a spot. I usually train with no spotter so it was awesome to see him in there. Went to 235 and knocked a PR for 5 reps and felt on top of the world. Let me note that I have now been off DAA for about a week so this was an incredible natty feeling! I was not done there I rode that high and threw a 2.5 on each side and nailed it for 3 easy reps and 1 rep with a little bit of help for the last few inches at 240lbs.
After this amazing accomplishment I killed the rest of my chest day and headed to the upper level of the gym because the energy was still through the roof. I'm bulking right now so my cardio has been pretty limited, I felt I had to do something active though before I left! Hopped on the stair stepper and the sweat just poured! I was constantly wiping my forehead and neck off with my shirt because after just five minutes I was pouring like I had been on there for 20 minutes! I only went for 10 minutes total but I felt incredible afterwards and the energy was still high.
I'm on third shift so I love a good stimulant to keep me going through the graveyard shift. I can easily feel drained at any time during work. Believe it or not I could still feel the first serving when I showed up for work at 10:45PM and I was completely shocked. At this point I would usually be ready for another pill of something or an energy drink to prep me for the long night. Not in this case, I was able to hold off til about 12:30AM and the only reason was because I wanted to give the concoction that I had created a try. It was 1 1/4 scoop of alphamine and 1 scoop recoverpro raspberry. Threw about 8 ounces of water and about 8 small ice cubes in and shook the bad boy up. Figured I would sip on that for a good 20-30 mins, yea right! This mixture was amazing. Even though it seems a bit different they complimented each other wonderfully! I downed the drink within five minutes and rode that good ole alphamine train for a good 5 more hours. Didn't even notice much of a crash at all and I can still feel slight effects to this moment!
Very nicely done PES! This is just day one and I'm already sure this is going to be an incredible feeling!
The Alphamine first day experience was amazing! The energy was incredible and I truly felt great all day. I probably should have limited myself to just a cup of coffee prior to the first serving to get rid of some shaky hands and a slight jittery feeling but strangely I liked the feeling! The effects on hunger were definitely there but being I'm lean bulking I could easily push through it and eat when I normally do. I did not experience a crash at all on the first day just a a tapered energy feeling. The taste is fantastic which is nice that someone finally got fruit punch right! I will post a few more reviews on here of my experience with Alphamine.
I have a 2 month supply and I think this is going to be interesting!
Appetite suppression 8.5/10

PES Alphamine Review
Taste: Great. My favorite fruit punch flavored supplement hands down. I have never been a fan of fuit punch at all. I tend to avoid them at all cost when purchasing a supplement. Alphamine was a surprisingly enjoyable experience for my taste buds.
Appetite Suppression: This is one of my favorite aspects of this product. Not overpowering like other fat burners. On other fat burners, my appetite gets so suppressed that it is detrimental to my physique and I end up not eating enough calories to maintain my muscle mass. Alphamine provides just the right amount of appetite suppression for me. It was simply perfect in this aspect.
Mixability: Always mixed perfectly in a shaker cup. No particles every at the bottom. Perfect
Fat loss: I lost 7lbs during my Alphamine run. My strength seemed to stay the same throughout the entire process. In the pictures I have below you can see a huge difference in my midsection. Overall, I look a lot better! I am really happy with my appearance. I had a better fat loss/muscle loss ratio with this than I had with EC. This was close to perfection. Not a 10 because most likely there’s always something new that’s going to come out and potentially be better for fat loss.
Stimulant Effect: No cracked out feeling at all. In my opinion it feels like a nice cup of coffee. Just what I needed. I do not like feeling like I have to get up and move around while on a stimulant. A product that can simply wake me up and that I can feel it so I know it's working is good enough for me. Unlike others, I didn't get a pre workout like effect from it.
No crash at all
GI Issues constantly
Overall: My favorite stimulant fat burner to date. I will definitely purchase this again and will recommend this to anyone looking to lose fat that is below ~18% body fat or someone who wants to maintain muscle and lose stubborn belly fat. Once again, great job PES. You continue to revolutionize the supplement industry!

Super great energy, didn't cause an uncomfortable rise in heart rate, but gives a feeling of well being and energy throughout the day.
Fat Burning 4.5/5
Lost a decent amount of fat.
Kind of expensive and doesnt last very long at the recommended dose of 3 scoops per day.
Overall great product.

Alphamine Final Review
I began Alphamine September 1st and am still running it. This log was for my first 5 weeks of use.
I went from 185 lbs to 177 lbs and back up to 179 lbs since upping my carbs over the past two weeks.
-My dosing varied. Some days I would do basic dosing of 2 scoops upon rising and 1 scoop. When I would have a long day of work I would spread up the dosing 1/1/1 split up every 5 hours. Really enjoyed this for long sustained energy.
-I used Alphamine as my pre workout with some added ALCAR, Citrulline Malate and Yok3d. Ridiculous pumps and vascularity!
-TASTE: Phenominal! Alphamine is without a doubt the best tasting and most refreshing supplement drink I've tasted. I started with Fruit Punch and had a second bottle of Raspberry Lemonade. Both are fantastic. Sometimes in between my dosing I'd open the tub just to sniff it, lol, sick I know. I wish I could drink it all day
-ENERGY: Excellent energy from Alphamine. Very clean, very sustained and long lasting. No jitters, no heart palpitations and NO CRASH! A lot of pre workouts and fat burners especially just stim you up and leave me very uncomfortable. After dosing Alphamine I was smooth sailing. Very good focus and drive, but without the "drug-like" feeling. Like I said, I loved using it as a pre-workout stim while adding some CITMAL/YOK3d. Breathing was easier and cardio was always a sinch.
-THERMO: Great thermogenic effects. Within minutes after taking this stuff every time I noticed the rise in body temperature. And it was never uncomfortable. I wouldn't start sweating until I activated the sweating with some type of exercise. I was able to go to work and do my job without worrying about perspiration. However, when I'd hit the weights or cardio, I'm drenched. As you can see in the pictures I lost a ton of water immediately. I also began adding Shift to this and it was pretty intense to say the least.
-APPETITE CONTROL: Nothing stops my appetite. Not DMAA or EC. What I noticed with Alphamine was that it helped me with portion control. I can eat, but I definitely don't feel the urge to eat as much per sitting. I get full quicker. It doesn't kill my appetite, but it definitely controls it. Which is more desireable IMO.
-FAT BURNING EFFECTS: Within 3-4 weeks my weight dropped from 185-177 while keeping my calories at maintenance along with a moderate carb intake. I did not run a cut diet while on Alphamine because I wanted to see exactly what benefits the Alphamine would bring. Over the past 2 weeks I actually began to up my carbs to see the effects and I still continued to lean out, while increasing fullness in the muscle. Really hit my abdomen area hard, the area I had most trouble losing fat. This stuff seriously is like a fat incinerator.
-RECOMP EFFECTS: A little over a week into taking Alphamine I also noticed an increase in dryness and hardness in my muscle. I even noticed more fullness. I attribute this to the HICA and Camouryldopamine. Great additions to this fat burner.
-FINAL THOUGHTS: All in all Alphamine is the most effective fat burner and recomp supplement I've ever used. The fat truly melts off in all the right spots. Not to mention it did not put me in a catabolic state. It did not tear down my muscle. The energy was amazing. Long, sustained and without any crash. Very clean. Loved it as a pre workout. If this stuff helped me lose fat while on a maintenance diet, I can only imagine what it what do on a low carb/caloric deficit.
The first two comparison pics are from right before starting Alphamine and now.
The last three larger pics are from 1 week into Alphamine and now. So the results already began to show, but continued.

I am more than 1/2 of the way through my first tub of Alphamine. This product has completely replaced my morning cup of coffee. I take one scoop with 18oz of cold water (mixes instantly and completely) and within minutes of my first sip the morning fog is gone and I feel like I am fully awake and engaged. Even though it is sold as a thermogenic, I have never had the feeling of being "warm" or sweating more than usual. However, I do feel like my brain has been cranked into full gear, and I get a general sense of well-being. Also, the appetite suppression effect is substantial.
I also take Alphamine if I ever have to go out to dinner and drinks with clients in the evening. The effect is that I am fully awake and "on" no matter what kind of day I've had, and I don't eat like a pig after having a few drinks.
Great product. Will continue to use.

I was lucky enough to get a tub of this to log here on AM. I'd like to say that i was under no agreement to review this product, but since i enjoyed it so much it felt right.
Energy - 10 - Honestly it was very hard for me to get to scoops a day cause i felt for most the day and the second scoop i felt would of put me over the edge. Also i severely lacked sleep with a newborn i was lucky to hit 5 hours at most, Alphamine helped greatly.
Fat Loss - I can't really rate this part cause i wasn't cutting i rarely ate with a calorie deficit. But i still was able to loose 2 pounds with a spotty diet at best. I was under stress of a newborn and work wasn't helping much so stress was at an all time high. Stress usually for me has my love handles become more pronounced. I didn't see any increase there though so was a huge relief.
Overall this product was another winner for a stacked PES line up. Its probably why i keep going back to them.

I eventually plan on trying this stuff because everything PES rocks. I will wait and see what my wife Rosie says about it though.
