Frequently Asked Questions
Why did we change Shock Therapy?
The old Shock Therapy was a venerable pre-workout that was launched several years ago. Then, as now, it was a full-feature, comprehensive pre-workout pump and energy product. However, today, we believed we could make the product better in every aspect, from the formula to the flavor. Flavoring systems, and our ability to produce great-tasting products, have improved tremendously in those years. We wanted to bring to bear these new technologies into an all-new and completely revamped formula for die-hard lifters.
How is this different from the old version of Shock Therapy?
This is an all-new, overhauled formula and completely redesigned flavoring system. This is not a simple facelift or update. Newer cutting-edge and patented ingredients were added to make this a more powerful and complete pre-workout product. What you'll notice immediately, as you take the new Shock Therapy, is the amazing new flavors. Unlike other pre-workouts on the market, this new formula is delicious–something that you can sip slowly and savor.
What makes Shock Therapy different from other pre-workouts?
Shock Therapy is a complete and comprehensive all-in-one. There is no need to buy a separate creatine, BCAA, "pump", energy/drive, antioxidant, performance and endurance supplement.* They are all provided for in Shock Therapy in a scientifically suggested and delicious package.
Does Shock Therapy have a full daily dose of creatine?
Yes. When you take Shock Therapy, you do not need additional creatine that day.
What is the difference between Shock Therapy and Animal Pump or Animal Rage?
Animal Pump is a strict pump product with mild stims. Animal Rage is a concentrated pre-workout for promoting intense energy and focus.* Animal Rage does not contain creatine or "pump" ingredients, while Shock Therapy does. Think of Animal Rage as a PR in a can, great for max effort workouts and or powerlifting meets. Shock Therapy is better suited for general lifters and bodybuilders who value the pump and maximizing muscle size and shape. Essentially, stacking Animal Pump and Rage would be comparable overall to Shock Therapy.
How much caffeine is in Shock Therapy?
Shock Therapy contains caffeine anhydrous and other natural sources of caffeine. Each scoop is the equivalent of roughly two strong cups of coffee. For two scoops, twice that amount.
Should I take one or two scoops of Shock Therapy?
This is a highly individualized question based on various factors such as bodyweight, personal stimulant tolerance, experience, etc. We recommend one scoop for those that are under 200 lb. and two scoops for those over 200 lb. (or if you have a high stimulant tolerance). As always, initially start with a lower dose to assess your own personal tolerance. If you have never used a pre-workout before, you may even need to start with ½ scoop.
Pre-workouts are usually nasty. Is it the same with Shock Therapy?
Absolutely not. We went to great lengths to ensure that the taste would rival the benefits, and spent many months just working on the flavors. Taste is, without a doubt, a strong point with the new Shock Therapy. Whether you choose Clyde's Hard Lemonade, Hawaiian Pump, or Grape Ape, we are sure you won't be disappointed.
What other products stack well with Shock Therapy?
Shock Therapy stacks well with Storm and Torrent. For example, take Shock Therapy pre-workout and follow it up with Torrent post-workout. And while Shock Therapy is loaded with BCAAs, for those who want more BCAAs during the workout, you can sip on Atomic 7, no problems. On off days, you can use Storm to get your daily dose of creatine and other nutrients.
Taste wise, most postworkout drinks taste awful? How did you get around this fact with Torrent?
True, it is difficult to mask the flavor of a formula that includes not only WPH and WMS, but 18g of advanced aminos. But through months of stringent taste testing protocols and new advancements in flavoring, we think we created a product you will actually look forward to consuming.
The mystical, mythical "pump"
For old school champions and modern day warriors, this is the holy grail. The product of a complex series of processes, it's physical and it's also psychological. But you don't need a Ph.D. You don't need to know how it works. You just need to feel it - feel the blood engorge your muscles and make you bigger. Literally.
Energy & Drive
One hits you all over like a ton of bricks - the other, a laser-like pinpoint. Together, they make up the next big component of the all-new Shock Therapy. If the pump is the main entrée, then the energy and drive are surely the appetizers. These two will set the table for an amazing session the first time, every time. When your body is sagging, when your motivation is flagging, chug it all away with tall cold one. With Shock Therapy, you get smooth, clean and sustained energy with less chance of crash.* You promote incredible drive and focus without the fogginess.*
Savor the flavor
Going into it, we knew all the tangibles. We knew we had to blow the doors off the old Shock Therapy in terms of pumps, energy and drive. We believe we have succeeded without too much effort at all. But the intangibles - those are harder to pin down. What are the intangibles? The things we all truly appreciate but aren't really willing to admit publicly: flavor. For the long haul, how easily something goes down matters a great deal. After all, no one wants to take a mallet to your palate. As Shock Therapy is chock full of goodies, it's not a quick, slam it back kind of shot. We're talking about a beverage you can savor from the first sip to the last drop. That's how good Shock Therapy truly is.
Great results with flavors that speak for themselves. That's the all-new Shock Therapy. Listen to what everyone is saying - great pumps, energy and great flavors.*
