I cant believe they have 330 mg of caffeine in it because that is about 2 1/2 cups of coffee or so but if its no crash I am REALLY tempted to try it because NANO Vapor wasn't as good as I thought it could be.

    I wanted to try Animal Rage because they make the fantastic Animal Pak and if they make such a great multivitamin they must make a fantastic pre-workout powder.

    Coffee is great to drink (black though of course before the gym) but usually I get crashes from my coffee and really dislike that.

    1MR? God bless you, that stuff made my stomach sick and I crashed as soon as I got out of the gym, read a few reviews on that but thankfully you got a trial version haha

    I typically use this site for looking at some new and reviewed pre-workouts on the market [url]http://nitrofatburners.com/weight-training/best-pre-workout-supplement/[/url]
    I'll hafta check the site out.

    I tried the 1MR on Monday. Energy & focus were pretty decent. Didn't crash from it, but did end up with an ocular migraine (basically the visual part of a migraine without the actual headache pain) about 2 hrs after taking it. Haven't had one of those in a couple of years, but also don't want to jump to conclusions and say the 1MR triggered it either. YMMV

    I've got another packet of Animal Rage to try too. We'll see if it's any better the second time around.

    Yeah, the ads for Neurocore mention 330 mg caffeine. The fine print is that the amount is in 3 scoops, not 1 (110 mg each). So it's only 15 servings per container instead of 45. But again, I've got a high tolerance to caffeine too.

    Although I don't suggest getting anywhere near it 2500-3000mg of caffeine in a 24 hour cycle is unsafe. I regularly take in 1400mg a day (400-600mg before my workout). Just remember the effects are different for everyone. You might have to experiment a little to find out how your body responds.

    I understand a lot of the members in the forum are adamant about their pre-workout supplements. I would rather spend my hard earned money on a proven product. I don't think you will be disappointed.

    doubt i'd get anywhere near that much, apparently 5 mg per pound of bodyweight depending on tolerances etc is a prope recommended dose

    Ive tried the bullnox and I really didnt like it. A lot of them have magnesium which might have some people running for the toilet. I just bought controlled labs white flood and I'm liking it. It doesn't have creatine in it which is good cause I bought the buy one get one free con-cret. Superpump max is also great but im sure they all affect everyone different.

    I've found the two that work best for me are jack 3d and cellucor's c4 extreme. I've grown to prefer the c4 and you get 60 scoops for under 35 bucks. Jack 3d is usually a good bet for the money if you find it online, no fancy container = cheaper price to you. Also it isn't just the caffeine in jack3d that give such a strong stimulant effect, it contains geranium extract, chemically listed as 1, 3 dimethylamylamine. This ingredient has actually been banned in canada. These two, jack 3d and c4 are my current favorites, and like stated above they are tiny scoops with no fillers. Hope this has been helpfull.

    I feel that this possible ban has a lot to do with the use of 1,3 Dimethylamylamine (also known as methylhexanamine), being used as the main ingredient in "party pills" (pills that try to mimic the high of ecstasy). I'm sure anything marketed as a recreational high is enough to scare our half educated government representatives into passing a bill to ban it. Just my opinion.

    In my opinion assault is the best formula compared Jack3d. It may cost a bit more but it is worth it considering your getting BCAA, glutamine, creatine HCL etc. It is by far better tasting too.

    I think Assault is decent tasting, but it does taste like sweetener. Jack3d watermelon is by far the best tasting, but it does lack other things as you mentioned. Controlled Labs has the worst tasting one. So bad, I could only manage one sip.

    I too have been looking for a great pre workout drink. Wanted one with out caffeine. From what a trainer told me. A good workout drink with N.O. is what helps open the blood vessels and gets oxygen in the muscles while working out, and caffeine does the exact opposite and restricks the blood vessels. So I started using EVP by [url]http://www.evogennutrition.com/[/url]. So far I am loving it. Really gives me that focus and I can really feel the muscles getting firm and solid while I am working out. Taste is not too bad. It is a bit pricey but I think it is on sale at bodybuilding.com right now. I have begun stacking it with their Cell K.E.M. Only been a few days but liking it so far.
