USPlabs Jack3d Review

May 10, 2012

USP Labs Jack3d (Jacked) is one of, if not the best selling pre-workout powder of all time. There is a reason – it’s powerful!

Ingredient Highlights With only six active ingredients, the small serving size of 5.5g delivers quite a punch. AAKG is included for NO production, creatine for strength and cell volumising effects, beta-alanine for increased muscle performance and recovery, caffeine and DMAA for an energy stimulation, and schizandrol for its mood enhancing effects.

Taste & Mixability Jack3d keeps coming out in new flavours, it’s tough to keep track! Grape bubblegum tastes great, as does lemon lime, and the tiny scoop dissolves in 300ml of water with no issues.

Strength This stuff is powerful! The combination of caffeine, DMAA and schizandrol makes each dose a very strong one. Most people can use one scoop for a while until they build up a tolerance. The warning to never take more than 3 scoops in a 24 hour period should be followed!

Value One of the cheapest pre-workouts available on the market, Jacked provides 45 potent scoops per tub, which is enough for 45 workouts for most people. That works out to be less than $1/scoop at Protein King’s price!

Final Word A powerful, well-priced and simple product, USPlabs Jack3d will help you power through your workouts.

Muscletech Hydroxystim Review

May 8, 2012

Muscletech Hydroxystim is a super-concentrated thermogenic product, utilising just a few key ingredients to assist your weight-loss and energy boosting needs.

Ingredient Highlights

  • Caffeine – a staple of all fat burners and pre workouts, caffeine is one of the most clinically-supported ingredients on the market. Muscletech Hydroxystim contains 100mg of caffeine per capsule, approximately equivalent to a cup of coffee.
  • Bacopa – a fairly rare ingredient in fat burning and energy products, this ingredient has several studies backing its’ ability to improve cognitive function, memory retention and focus.

Strength With 100mg of caffeine and 176mg of geranium per capsule, Muscletech Hydroxystim is an extremely potent product. It can be taken pre-workout for an energy boost, or anytime before cardio for increased fat-loss. The full serving size is 3 capsules, which should give anyone a big kick.

Value Available in 18, 110 and 200 capsules per bottle, there is a size that suits anyone’s budget. At the recommended dosage of one pill per day, the larger size will last longer than six months. Protein King heavily discounts their Muscletech Hydroxystim!

Final Word A no-nonsense fat burner and energy booster, with minimal ingredients providing maximal strength, Muscletech Hydroxystim is a good addition to anyone’s supplement arsenal.

Musclepharm Assault Review

May 3, 2012

Quickly becoming one of the most sought after brands in the supplement world, MusclePharm has stuck with the ‘full dosage’ pre-workout powder, with their best selling Assault.

Ingredient Highlights

  • Anti-Fatigue Blend – with beta-alanine and citrulline malate
  • Strength Domination & Recovery Matrix – containing creatine monohydrate and Con-Cret
  • High Performance & Energy Blend – containing taurine, caffeine, l-tyrosine and white tea leaf powder

Taste & Mixability Musclepharm Assault is available in five fruit-based flavours. All are quite sweet (depending on how much water is used), and mix really well. Orange mango is really tasty!

Strength At the serving size of 23g, you should definitely feel MP Assault working. With so many ingredients though, you are probably better off going for the full serve of 46g to get the maximum benefit from the range of ingredients.

Value There are 32 x 23g servings in each tub of Muscle Pharm Assault, which is enough for more than a month. Even at double the serving size, it should last a few weeks, and at just $49.95 at Protein King, MusclePharm Assault delivers a host of benefits at a great price.

Final Word One of the better ingredient lists of any pre workout on the market is contained in MusclePharm Assault. Being ‘banned substance free’, it is safe for all competing athletes to use, and is sure to boost energy levels, enhance recovery, delay fatigue and assist lean muscle growth.
