Tried the pink lemonade flavour today for leg day.... probably had my worst leg workout in a while. Didn't feel much other than shortness of breath and a lack of focus. Could be the higenamine again....
Mixes and tastes ok but nothing spectaular. Can't complain as I got it for $19.
Not Really Sure but for me it gave me headaches and made me feel shaky, Hyper focused almost like the properties of an amphetamine.
Pretty average pre-workout really, not great but not awful.
Had the fruit punch flavour and it wasn't too bad, best with chilled water. Pretty good for fruit punch which I usually don't like. It wasn't too sweet.
Started off with a double serve and didn't find it made that much of a difference compared to other pre-workouts. No tingles or other negative side effects.
I do like the fact it is creatine free, but I don't get why they make the servings smaller and then say take two... why not just make the serving bigger so you get a better indication of how many workouts you will get out of it? Probably a marketing gimmick.
When you have a look at the ingredients, there is not a lot of caffeine per serve in there which may suit some people, but since the packet says take two servings, you need to double everything, putting it back on par with other pre-workouts.
Not a bad pre-workout, just not what I am looking for.
Been using shatter for a while now :) loving it! great tasting strawbery flavour my fav!!! awesome energy, pump and focus. Also gives you that tiggly feeling when training which some people like some people don't, I personally don't mind it. stronglu recommend! :)
I hadn't heard much about this product before I tried it. This is the first Muscletech Pre I have tried. I first tried to mix this in a glass and spoon and it mixed up perfectly, no shaker required. The taste was okay, I had the watermelon flavour, was a bit tart.
I took this 20 minutes before hitting the gym, On my drive there i did notice i was wide awake and ready to hit the weights( this is at 5:15am on Monday morning after a long weekend). The energy was not like a burst of energy, but a clean uplifting feeling. I did not notice much of a pump, but I was training back, so I do find back is one of those areas I struggle to get a pump, so probably not a fair review on pump there. The focus I had on this was hands down the best I have had since the original Craze. I have recently been on mesomorph 2.0, assault, c4, super pump 3.0 and none of these touch this in the focus department, it was awesome! I had a great workout and would definitely buy this product. The only downfall was the taste and pump factor, but I would imagine stacking t his product with Agmatine would be mean!
Hadn't been 'stimmed' in about a month or so, and had been given a sample of this by the friendly crew at Xplosiv. I personally haven't heard too much about Shatter-7 to be honest, but trusted Muscletech as they generally bring out some great products, price point aside.
So I had back this morning, and holy shit, I had a pretty decent pump second set in/10 minutes. This lasted the whole hour, which I was super surprised, it blew me away.
The only negative about this product is the flavour. To be honest, it was pretty nasty. I'm all about flavor over formula, and this just didn't cut it for me unfortunately.
If you're not fussed about flavor, I'd recommend this product no doubt.
Taste - 5/10 The label states natural flavouring system or something so I shouldn't be too harsh but meh, it ain't for me.
Consistency - 4/10 some clumping at the bottom of the shaker. Wasn't a major, came out fine with an extra rinse, but the clumps when ingested tasted gnarly as.
Formula - 8/10 A few regular suspects in here, but a few that stand out to me.
We have caffeine and Beta alanine, both at moderate doses by todays standards making double scooping almost a given. It also contains PEAK ATP which I've never really looked into. I ran a stand alone tub of this and felt zero results so doesn't really do much for me.
The ingredients that stand out to me are the Nutmeg and Nelumbo Nucifera. Nutmeg is found in Muscletechs latest hydroxycut 'SX-7' while Nelumbo Nucifera features in my latest love Optiburn Amped by Platinum labs. So we have a lot of interesting stimulants / motivational and even 'euphoric' (settle down, craze heads) but not a lot of what I'd consider 'build' e.g. bcaa, leucine, Creatinol O-Phosphate, agmatine, etc.
Effect - 8/10
Dialled in, stimulated, had a great bench / squat / deadlift workout, all 3x8, but nothing out of this world. I didn't feel like smashing it, if you know what I mean. I felt like doing my sets as per my program, nothing more, nothing less.
Overall - 7/10
I really like that muscletech are not hiding behind a proprietary blend on this one, and I like that some of their ingredients are stepping outside the square a little. Unfortunately after using amp citrate more often lately and even defcon-1, this doesn't quite hit the mark. I like that the price is going to be under $50nzd for a tub so I think it will work out much like 1mr vortex.
Good focus but not massive on the stim front. Those who are quite stim tolerant may need 3 serves.
