QUALITY

There are times when you want a hefty dose of caffeine for pre-workout performance. But on other occasions, like first thing in the morning or a late afternoon pick-me-up, what you’d get from a cup of coffee is more appropriate. ON’s Essential Amino Energy™ offers the best of both with a formula that delivers 100mg of caffeine from natural sources per 2-scoop serving. Decrease or increase the energy level as the occasion demands. Each serving provides 5 grams of micronized amino acids.

This stuff works. It's just that simple. I personally don't use it as a pre-workout, but use it throughout the day to just keep me doing. I usually mix 3-4 scoops before going into work and occasionally mix another 3-4 while at work and I'm good to go. I personally love the blue raspberry and blueberry mojito flavors the best.

This is my favorite pre-workout out of all I've tried. I've had Mr. Hyde, C4, Vapor X5, and some other samples and this is my favorite. It mixes very very and super fast and tastes better than most others (tastes the same as C4 IMO). I like that it's more basic and has what I want in it. Its not gritty like Vapor. Overall great product.

Great taste, mainly bought product for the BCAA. Required two scoops to actually feel anything and would say some increased energy at that dosage but not significant. Then again I am a coffee junkie which may explain that part!
