You will get a great energy kick and mood elevation that lasts for quite some time. I am a stim junkie but I felt like this preworkout does not hit you extremely hard. It is a solid burst of initial energy and it stays with you well into an hour lifting session. I liked the mood elevation aspect of this pre workout, I always felt in the zone on it. The only draw back is the taste. I don't really care about taste but the flavor lingers in your mouth. It is very poor tasting but the after taste really gives me a yuck feeling in my stomach. I am not one to really care for flavor but somehow the taste negatively impacts you.
Horrible taste, great product
I will say, I think this is the worst tasting stuff I've ever continuously subjected myself to. With that being said, it gives a great, long lasting boost. Just don't take it if you plan on sleeping anytime after taking it.
Overall a great product
I had gotten this about a year ago at a sale the local shop had going. The product did work but for me, I had some uncomfortable gas after about 45 minutes post taking this supplement. Again that’s not a deterrent from what it actually does just my body didn’t like it.
Middle of the Pack
Overall this preworkout was decent. The flavor was terrible in my opinion and at times made me a little nauseous. The pump/focus was pretty good, honestly that was the only reason I finished the container. I had a pretty hard time getting myself to choke it down before my workouts, even tried throwing the powder straight to the dome a few times to get it over with. I won't be buying again, but I could see how some others liked the pump you can get from it.
Not The Best
This is not the greatest pre-workout but geats the job done and is a great deal on Suppz. The flavor is just okay as well, but it does mix well.
