Product Reviews of Supplements
« on: April 06, 2011, 05:56:27 PM »
All products were taken 1-2 hrs after a meal and 30-45 minutes prior to workout

Nutrex Hemo Rage Nutrex Underground - Hemo-Rage

Flavor – Malicious Melon. One of the best I have tasted
Mixed – via spoon, no residue
Dosage ½
Bodyparts Trained Chest & Shoulders
Evaluation-.Great amount of energy, nothing over the top but definitely sweated pretty good and was powered fairly well through my cardio. No after crash.

2 days later I decided to take a full dosage, same flavor mixed via spoon. Definitely stupid on my part. I felt like I was on crack (no have never used it) but my hands were tremoring, sweating profusely 10 minutes into my back and bi’s workout, stomach was nauseous, no focus. I did manage to have a decent workout but definitely didn’t feel right.


BPI – 1MR

https://bpisports.net/store.php?page=1mrp

Flavor – Fruit Punch – decent Flavor
Mixed – Shaker, no residue
Dosage – full
Bodyparts Trained Shoulders/Bi’s
Evaluation – Good Clean Energy, good sweat, nice overall feeling

Flavor – Lemon Lime, decent flavor, tasted like lemon drop candy
Mixed Shaker, no residue
Dosage – full
Bodyparts trained – Back
Evaluation – good clean energy, good sweat, nice overall feeling. No aftercrash.

Champion Nutrition – Glypro XTS
GlyProXTS | Champion Nutrition
Flavor Acai’ Berry Blast – terrible flavor, bitter
Mixed – Spoon – had to stir a lot, residue left
Dosage - full
Bodyparts Trained – Quads
Evaluation – not really impressed, hadn’t gotten the lift from some of the others, although it did have 300 mg of Caffeine. One of the worst tasting.

Gaspari Super Pump 250
SuperPump250 - Pre-Workout Bodbuilding Supplement
Flavor - Fruit Punch Blast – maybe 6/10, not sure if it is Beta Alanine that gives it chemical like taste or what
Mixed – Shaker – lil residue
Dosage – full
Bodyparts trained – Chest
Evaluation –I actually felt a little sleepy (sometimes too much caffeine does the opposite and calms me down, I know I’m strange) but once I started lifting I felt energized, started to sweat and overall good feeling. No after-crash

Controlled Labs White Flood
Controlled Labs
Flavor – Raspberry – maybe 5/10, again kind of “chemically”
Mixed – Shaker Lil residue
Dosage – full
Bodyparts trained – Quads and Bis
Evaluation – no caffeine “buzz”, nice clean energy, good sweat and no after-crash feeling.

Double T CreaDyl
Double-T Sports
Flavor – Orange Cream – tasted like Orange Sherbert, maybe 6/10
Mixed – Spoon Stirred – lil residue
Dosage full
Bodyparts trained – back
Evaluation – Never heard of this company before as I was able to pick up a free sample.Nice clean energy, no caffeine buzz but ironically maybe 1 ½ ;ater I did start to get some jitters at my desk

Labrada Super Charge
Labrada Nutrition SUPER CHARGE! XTREME - Huge Discounts!
Flavor – Blue Raspberry – very little taste
Mixed – spoon, heavy residue I just couldn’t get rid of.
Bodyparts Trained – Chest and Bi’s
Evaluation – just like Super pump I first was overcome with a sleepy feeling but was able to overcome it but not as easily as SP 250. OK product but definitely lower on my list.

Controlled Labs Green Magnitude
Controlled Labs
Flavor Sour Green Apple – maybe 8/10, sour like name says but nice on the palate
Mixed- Shaker, very well, little if no residue at all
Bodyparts Trained – Shoulders
Evaluation – although some may not consider this a PWO but I wanted to give this a try as it has no caffeine and something to take on off days or for later day/night workouts. I was definitely happy with this from overall flavor, nice energy boost and of course no caffeine crash.

I forgot to add that, it is a good product but flavoring is pretty bad. FUnny enough, the rep I got the sample friend told me this flat out and that they were re-formulating the flavor..

i took a sample yesterday ! i for the first time didn't enjoy my pump because it was so painful to curl the more i rep the more painful it gets ! this is coming from someone who just started cycling pre workout drinks and on a low carb cutting diet and depleted ! i did a side chest and MM and i was shocked to see a web of veins all over my shoulders and biceps.

placebos effect maybe ! who knows

Purus Labs Muscle Marinade is pretty good. Great pump but taste like crap. I Prefer Jack3d, take 3 scoops and get ready to take off.

LOL!!
That is my EXACT protocol.
The only exception I make is when coffee is not possible for whatever reason.
But, yes: I get a better "feeling" from coffee than from commercial products; and coffee is amazingly healthy, providing naturally occurring anti-oxidants, etc.

Went to the Hartford show and picked up some new treats:

GAT
Nitraflex
http://www.teamgat.com/nitraflex.php
Flavor – Green Apple - very mild, not best tasting, maybe 4/10
Mixed - shaker bottle with wire ball - blended nicely
Dosage – full
Bodyparts trained – Shoulders
Evaluation – no caffeine “buzz”, nice clean energy, no real pump but none of these really give me a pump. My gut is because I am ofseason  ;D and at about 15%BF

Not a bad product, need to work on the flavoring.....

  Probably my overall favorite NO/pre-workout product, although LG is right about Hemo-Rage providing vulgar amounts of energy.

  Labrada's Super Charge Xtreme is also very good.

Tried a Sample of NO Explode today (Watermelon)

Mixed in a Shaker (wisk ball) bottle

Mixed well, not residue or clumps but was interesting as it had a carbinated/seltzery type taste.

Waited 30 minutes and off to shoulders I went.

Here we are 1 hour later and I am tingly and itchy, not sure if this is a "niacin flush" or something else but right now want to itch profusely......

Not sure if I will be using this again!

i think its naicine flush but usually it lasts for few minutes not hours !

i took a sample of NanoVapor HC when it first came out  ! and let me tell you my face and ears went super red ! i felt the heat building up on my ears for like 15min lol that was one scary moment lol 

i took a sample a year later from a friend at the gym and it didnt do a thing.

SAN Tight Extreme - Review
« Reply #20 on: November 11, 2011, 08:47:23 AM »


This is a review for SAN Tight Extreme. It's a great fat-burning product with undeniable thermogenic benefits.
I originally used the first formula in 2006, but the revamped blend is mind blowing! Be sure to include this in
your arsenal, in addition to cardio, diet, and restful night's sleep.

Another Pre Workout

Beast - Beast Mode http://www.beastsports.com/beast-mode.html
Taste - 6/10, fruit punch flavor, palatable but kind of "chemical-ish"
Mixability - very easy with spoon, no residual or grit

Taken approxamately 30 minutes prior to chest workout, last meal 90 minutes prior.

Nice feeling, clean energy although I do get a Niacin type flush, I get an itchy sensation around my ears, not sure if is the niacin or something else.

This is the 2nd time I have used it and both times got this itchy sensation. Not a deal killer or anything and would probably use this again.
