Dr. JEKYLL combines the powerful synergy of Leucine, HMB and Agmatine Sulfate to support muscle rejuventation, while the Energy, Endurance & Focus blend prolongs your will to battle through your exercise session with intensity and purpose.
- Fortified with Pikatropin to promote determination and focus during activity.
- Superior form of Creatine- Creatine Hydrochloride in every scoop.
- HMB & L-Leucine to optimise full body rejuventation and growth.
- Glycerol and Agmatine Sulfate to initiate skin-splitting pumps and enhanced nutrient transport.
The Strength Matrix:
Creatine hydrochloride is the NEW standard in creatine supplementation. A study demonstrated this new form to be significantly more stable and required far smaller servings than traditional creatine monohydrate to attain more total body creatine saturation for faster strength improvements.
The Endurance Complex:
Beta-alanine is included in gram dosages to help your body produce more carnosine. This in turn may delay the build-up of lactic acid so you can perform more repetitions and volume before the burning lactic acid kicks in.
Histidine is an amino acid that helps the growth and repair of tissue and involved in protecting nerve cells.
The Amino Matrix:
HMB (B-hydroxy B-methylbutyrate)
HMB is is a key metabolite of the most anabolic amino acid- Leucine. The inclusion of HMB may enhance overall muscle anabolism and support faster recovery- especially when in a fasted or calorie deficient state.
Leucine is an essential amino acid and the most important amino for muscle growth. Leucine is the ONLY anabolic signalling amino acid and is a vital inclusion to ensure you are maximising your growth in the gym.
Energy and Focus Matrix:
Pikatropin helps deliver blood flow to the brain and could minimise mental fatigue. It may improve reaction speed and co-ordination and performance feats.
Caffeine anhydrous is the only stimulant included to support energy, fatty acid use as fuel and support mental stamina to improve your athletic performance.
The Pump Matrix:
Agmatine is included to support mind-muscle connection to allow you to recruit more muscle fibres thus becoming stronger and may even support LH levels to potentially increase testosterone levels naturally. There is also evidence Agmatine may reduce pain at the endurance level to allow improve athletic stamina.
Glycerol Monostearate helps promote enhanced blood volume to produce skin-splitting pumps and road map vascularity, flooding your working muscles with nutrient-rich blood while training.
More recently research has demonstrated Citrulline Malate to produce superior results in vasodialation and nutrient delivery than arginine so was a logical inclusion.
Research suggests Norvaline helps enhance NOS and pumps by protecting the other NOS promoting ingredients by interfering with arginase activity.
Tried out a single serve of this for the first time the other day. Blue Raspberry flavour. It didn't mix very well, a few particles still hanging around after mixing. Taste wise it was okay, nothing amazing.
Pretty rare for me to use a pre-workout that isn't stim heavy, so I definitely noticed the lack of caffeine in this.
Found the pump to be pretty good, although quite sporadic. It did give me a bit of endurance though, so I was quite happy about that. But overall, kinda average. I definitely prefer Dilate by ANS Performance.
LOVE this! Always works for me, the pump, stim and endurance, Hell yeya
As the label says, No heavy stimulants, kind of defies the point of a pre workout, on the plus side no jitters or tingles, but quite a heavy crash makes me want to sleep about 1-2 hours post workout which is OK for a late evening workout, but not so good for an early morning or mid afternoon session, probably due to the lack of stimulants.
On a more positive note, I found Dr Jekyll to be awesome for energy and endurance when doing a mixture of running, cardio and callesthenic Training, upped my usual output by about 25-30% when using Dr jekyll.
The fruit punch flavour is terrible, but thats nothing unusual for a PWO.
As for formula, Jekyll has creatine HCl and eliminates the need to take additional creatine pre-workout, but is low in leucine and could also use a bit more beta alanine.
Tastes like shit
Good for endurance
Best used for evening workouts
This review is based on a sample pack I recieved after purchasing Ritual.
Taste: 6/10 I found the fruit punch flavour quite sickening and it sat in my stomach for a while.
Consistancy: 8/10 it mixed well when I added to a shaker and had no left over residue.
Overall: 8/10 because of the taste and after taste I had to drop the rating. I felt the performance of it in regards to the other pre-workouts were similar and had no amazing exsplosion of energy during workout.
However, again this is based on a sample pack and as i have just brought Ritual I most likely will not look to get this product, as I have herd through word of mouth that Ritual is the next bighting.
I have tried a lot of preworkouts,dating back to the first release of n.o xplode, and I have never had a crash like I did from this product. It mixed well, it was hard to swallow as tasted very strong and bitter,but taste doesn't worry me if the product works well. I had a bit of a kick from 1 scoop,usual amount of focus,but nothing amazing,pump was good. As I am a tradie and train at 5:30am then go do a physical job,I notice if a product has a crash. Never have I experienced a drop in motivation and energy levels as I did on this, I never drink coffee or energy drinks,but I had to drink a medium v just to get through my 9 hour day,I was absolutely knackered!!!! Will never try this product again,I used 1\4 of tub and threw away the rest.
i could easily tell when i had not used this pre workout. It gave me a lot of energy and i was able to increase my reps and weights. However it did leave me a little "scatter brained" and it did make it a little hard for me to concentrate although it wasn't as bad as other pre workouts. I would recommend this product to anybody. 8/10
Flavour: 9/10 Punch flavour. Generic fruit taste, bit of an aftertaste (agmatine aint too pretty tasting) but certainly not bad.
Consistency 7/10: It does take a while to mix - though there is a tiny bit of clumping in my tub, could be that I didn't secure the lid tight enough (I have noticed that this and my tub of Hyde have awkward lids - they are really hard to unscrew with very little thread)
Formula 9/10: I said this about Hyde and I'll say it again: this bitch has everything you could want in a low stim pre workout.
750mg Agmatine for pump (along with other benefits) - that's an excellent dosage, 1000mg would be ideal, but I use it standalone anyway in the morning so not fussed. 2 scoops of this and you hit the optimum level of 1.5g.
Caffeine - Just 100mg per serve.
Beta Alanine - damn, them some intense tingles. I think more than the stim, Id be afraid of double dosing just for the BA!!
Piktotropin - buggered if I know what this is.. but I think it's a stim / mental aid
Creatine - 1g
500mg Leucine - yeaaaaaah bit underdosed here. Make that a 5000mg (5g) and you've got yourself a 10/10.
The challenge for me was using this stand alone as a low stim break from higher stim products for a week. And it was a challenge. I'm weak minded and love me some stims.
Often I would use a scoop of this upon waking before work.
I also stacked with other high stim products.
Honestly an amazing product that is a perfect addition to your supplement cellar for deload week or a bit of a break. Hell, just taking it in the morning is a great option.
Only thing that lets it down is the laughable leucine content. I want to say 'needs more stim' but this is not a stim product. It's the good Doctor. You want the beast, go train with Mr Hyde.
This has become my go to low stim pre workout and works great when you are either already taking a stimulant like a thermongenic or when you are needing a pre-workout for training late in the day and want to be able to sleep at night. Best thing about this product is the insane pumps in provides even when low on carbs for morning training. Solid product.
This product would have the potential to be a 9/10 or even close to 10/10
But as you only get 30 serves for around the same price as mr hyde it's hard to give it more than a 8/10.
However.. If price doesn't bother you it's an amazing product as whilst being lower stim it still gives you a great kick/pump.
