Platnium Labs Defcon 1 is the highest state of Alert and that is exactly where you will be when training after a dose of DEFCON1.
While other preworkouts just seem to load more and more stimulants into their products and promise focus, delivering a jittery workout and horrible crash afterwards. DEFCON1 uses brain boosting nootropics to dramatically increase cognitive ability and mind to muscle connection. Nootropics have been proven in numerous human studies to increase brain function, communication between left and right hemispheres of the brain, help with study and concentration and even increase IQ scores. Platinum Labs is the first company to ever combine these amazing substances into a pre-workout to get you focused and driven like never before! We weren’t done there though as not only did we want to give laser like focus but also people to be loving every single extra rep! So we also included mood enhancing compounds to put you in a positive and focused state of mind!
Platnium Labs Defcon 1 features:
- Unparalleled pumps and strength increases
- Enhance Metabolism
- No proprietary blend - all ingredients and quantities transparent.
- No crash
The watermelon was absolutely disappointing. Pineapple on the other hand was delicious. The focus is there and so is the energy but, I didn't notice much of a pump from it. Mixes well with some sediments settling on the bottom but no clumping.
This was ok. Not as good as I was hoping. Very mild effects and didn't always give me that pump and drive that I need at 4:30am in the morning. I found it was good though for when I was doing any running event. Just have a half scoop 30 mins before I started the race and I would feel good and charged up enough for that sort of thing.
I love this preworkout! Had a huge lay off preworkouts for a while as the new formulas that were coming out were very hit and miss when compared to the old formulas with the good stuff in them. After hearing some good things about Defcon I decided to give it a go. Firstly the taste of the pineapple is great, just taste like Raro, no harsh chemical notes to the taste, I tend to mix up with loads of water just to prolong drinking it. In terms of effects first thing I noticed was the BA tingles followed by a nice clean stim effect, nothing too crazy stim wise but enough to get me going. Pump and endurance were both very good also. I still have a tub of dedicated floating around so for huge workouts I will sometimes mix a half a scoop with the Defcon and that combo is unreal !
Pretty amazing product right here. Definitely one of the best preworkouts on the market, not quite up there with the top dogs (Prodigy XT), but very closely following them.
Couldn't resist grabbing a tub when it was on special.
Held out on review till I got halfway through my tub.
Haven't built up a large tolerance for this product.
Stim is pretty decent and focus is amazing.
Flavour is on point, but does have a slight aftertaste which is hard to explain, not bad, just weird. I had the pineapple flavour.
Also mixes really well, and awesome when combined with other products such as C4 watermelon (Fruit punch) or Gaspari anavite (tropical).
do not buy the watermelon!! it is the single worst tasting, not pre workout but supplement i have taken over the past 3 years. i took 2 scoops did not feel anything.
Defcon1 Pineapple Flavor is definitely the best tasting pre workout supplement I have had. The very first time I took this, everyone around me noticed my improved mood and productivity. The increased focus the other reviews are mentioning is a very real thing. I loved the energy level, especially with no crashing afterward.
Platinum Labs use creatine hcl and other very high quality ingredients to make sure you feel an intense pump and that you get amazing gains from your workouts, with virtually no drawbacks. No jitters, no crashing.
After I finish my bottle I will be getting another for sure.
based on a sample packet, this has to be one of the better tasting, stronger, longer lasting pre workouts that i have tried.. pineapple flavour tastes like canned dole pineapple syrup, and the stimulants had me up and going for hours after my workout with no sign of crashing. definately a pre workout for the A.M.
To me this is one of my favourites now.
The focus alone was amazing,the taste was real pineapple.
Formula is bloody decent and i trained pretty damn hard on this.
Anyone who loved such classics as Mesomorph,Ritual,Prodigy & 12 gauge shotty will love this imo.
Used this morning for fasted deadlifts. I used 1 heaped scoop of a 3 scoop sample from xplosiv supplements.
30 mins after taking it I wasn't in a cracked out caffeine state, but felt switched on, chirpy and energized.
Struggled a bit in the heavier lifts but thats due to poor diet of late. Can hardly blame the product for that.
This definitely took me by surprise. The taste was superb, the mental focus and even mood really shone through on this one (and didn't drop me 20 minutes later like most other PEA formulas). I'm seriously tempted to go 10/10 here however after using the 'mystery' preworkout from xplosiv supplements which I don't feel this quite tops, I will stick to a 9.
Got to say this is one product that actually surprised me, I've used a full tub of the stuff and I can agree the first few times you use it.. It's AMAZING.. but the tolerance builds up quite quick, you have to come back to it
