This is no standard pre workout, with several ingredients that you won’t find in any other formula. We’re major fans of nearly every ingredient inside, and think the current deal is definitely worth trying if you’re tired of the “same old same old”.
The one question here is the dosing. There’s a bit too much “Proprietary Formula Hell” for us to truly know what’s going on.
Regardless, I’m optimistic about this one though. Consider this my “pre review” after only researching the ingredients:
PES Enhanced Pre-Review: The Pumps Look Good
First, I’m confident that the pumps will be good because we do know that 500mg is in a scoop. This is a great starting point, and most people like 500-1000mg (with some more aggressive people going up to 1500mg). So you’re likely going to feel that.
But more imoprtantly, Leucine Nitrate is in there. It’s a great pump supplement that you won’t find in many other products (Athletic Xtreme SuperSize is one such one), as it’s licensed out by ThermoLife. Word is, ThermoLife doesn’t allow anyone to use this unless a serious dosage is put in. No pixie dusting their stuff! SuperSize gives great pumps, and Leucine Nitrate is the only nitric oxide ingredient there. Couple it with agmatine and you should be rollin strong.
Smart Stimulant Mix
125mg caffeine per scoop is about standard. I’d use 1.5 scoops personally. I’m a major fan of higenamine, which is also in the new USPLabs OxyELITE Pro Formula and Jack3d Micro formula. Great thermogenic… but we’re just not sure of the dosing here.
Finally, there’s a new yohimbe extract, which PES claims to be better than any old “dirty yohimbe” that’s given the plant a bit of a bad name (I personally don’t have problems with any form of yohimbe / yohimbine).
Cognitive Support for the Brain
Two types of choline – Citicoline / Choline-CDP (the best, but most expensive), and choline bitartrate to fill in the gaps. You’ll get a kick out of this!
Conclusions (Having Not Tried It in an Official Review)
All in all, I’m excited about it, but there’s no way to know til we try it since the entire proprietary formula is 1300mg, which does seem small for all that stuff. It’s looking to be a good 1.5-2 scooper, giving you somewhere between 20 and 25 workouts per tub. At the right price, we’re in.
