For the price range this is good value and competes with JYM and Pre Kaged for what it offers in pump, but the ingredients feel cheaper hence the price.

This pre-workout is amazing one of the best i've ever tried. I'm in intense trainning for 1 hour every day and it gives me the energy and boost that i need, i don't feel tired easily with this product and even after my 5km run i don't feel tired for a long time. I'm only giving a 9/10 because the Blueberry Lemonade gave me a "intestine problem" everytime I took it, but other flavors I didn't had this problem.

I train 6 times a week at an intense level, now more that I am cutting body fat. This preworkout is my second and the effect was very good lasting my whole training session (approximately, 2 hours 25 minutes) without any crash/tiredness feeling. Much preferred in comparison to BSN NO XPLODE, for efficiency and taste. Will be buying again.

Not sure if I'm immune to the affects of caffeine or what (I'm a barista.. drink a lot of coffee) but I felt relatively no difference and still struggled to get thru my workout energy wise. Taste was ok - not bad not great. Will try again and see but so far I am unsure.

good preworkout for money... I came from using Jym Pre which has many more supplements which leads to a much higher cost. I wanted to try a cheaper alternative to test results and I am happy with the results I'm seeing. The only thing I would recommend is also buying creatine to add to this as I didn't feel I was getting all the recovery/endurance I should have. With the added creatine it is a very good product.

Pros: green Apple is a decent flavor Cons: destroys your stomach. Almost puked after using it early morning on a non high-intense workout -gives you a burning feeling -didn’t feel super energized

Mixes with water well. I workout early in the morning and AM NOT A MORNING PERSON. Within 20 minutes I am focused and have the energy I need. There are no crazy gitters or racing heart. Love this product.

Blueberry lemonade tastes awesome! It mixes well with water unlike others pre-workouts I’ve used. I usually take this at 5 pm before my workout and I have no issues with sleeping. Good job ON!

I decided to try this just for a different pre-workout. Taste is better than other products I have tried. This seems to stay with you through the workout a little better than other products.
