This post is going to be about my experiences with just the PRE. Intra Blast will follow later.
As mentioned in the other thread, NutraBio PRE would be the only product used if money was no issue when it comes to sports nutrition supplements. The level of transparency, trust and dosing is second to none.
My current training is a full body split, three times a week with a different focus each day (back, shoulders/chest and legs). Heavy compound movements are used in the beginning then hypertrophy movements for the remaining sets and body parts. I used this sample pack on my back focus day, which included heavy deadlifts at the start.
In terms of mixing and flavor, I have always been impressed at the mixability of a PRE with almost 30g of ingredients per scoop. The initial mix takes care of about 95% of the ingredients with slight foam that dissipates quickly. Can’t ask for much more and the last sips do not have any bad taste or grit to them with just a slight swirl. Taste of the Dragonfuit candy flavor is very unique and quite enjoyable for my first experience. I could see using an entire tub without issue or tiring of the flavor. Even more impressive that this flavor is accomplished without loads of cr*p in the other ingredients section.
As for the effectiveness, I have never been disappointed with any scoop of PRE and this was no different. Smooth and long lasting energy with no post-workout crash. Great focus and when paired with music, nothing else in the gym distracts me. The pump is always amazing (even on an empty stomach), especially when I move into the hypertrophy sets. Can’t speak too much to the vascularity because I am overweight and don’t really experience that effect. Endurance and hydration is also top notch on this. I feel like I could lift for hours and hours without needing a break with a scoop of this in my system. No cramps or feeling run down at any point during the session. No side effects experienced either.
@Kon_Rock Let me know if there is any other point you want me to touch on that I missed during this post. Thank you
