I love this pre-workout, the taste is great, the price is good for the quality, and it doesn’t make you feel like your heart is going to explode. I had issues with finding a pre-workout that helped my energy level while not making me feel like my chest was going to cave in and THIS IS PERFECT! It’s decently priced and works like a wonder I would recommend and buy again!

Review for: Fruit Fusion more...
My boyfriend and I sweat by these BCAAs. Optimum Nutrition is a very reputable supplement brand, which is nice because not many companies in the industry are. My boyfriend and I drink the fruit flavored product, but honestly all of the flavors taste amazing. They’re not too sugary or grainy. They have the perfect amount of sugar without being overwhelmingly sweet. Definitely a good prework to give you that extra boost!

Hands down my favorite preworkout. I am sensitive to caffeine and this does not affect me in any ways that others do. I have enough energy to get through an awesome workout and no crash after. The taste is very good. I can’t say enough good things about this product. Will forever re purchase.

Review for: Concord Grape more...
This is by far the best tasting pre-workout powder I've ever tried. It completely Blends into your water leaving no chunks behind and the grape flavor is really good. The salesman at GNC recommended this when I asked for the best pre-workout and I think he was spot-on. I can feel a difference when I work out with this onboard beforehand. It gives me a really good rush of energy but not too crazy jittery, and it helps with endurance too. This helped me get in good shape and I highly suggest trying it out.

Review for: Concord Grape more...
This gave me a good amount of energy for my workout, which consists of kickboxing and strength training. I now only use fir kickboxing, and the maybe a half scoop for strength training as I was getting a little jittery after this workouts. I have purchased this on Amazon or BodtBuilding.com in the past. One tip would be to start with half the recommended dose, especially if you have not used supplements to see how your body will handle it!

Review for: Amin.O. Blue Raspberry more...
Optimum Nutrition has done it again. Another high quality product. I use Amino Energy to keep up my momentum during my workouts and sometimes as a nice pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon. Blue Raspberry is a delicious flavor among all the rest of the flavors under the brand. Very reasonably priced around $20-$25 dollars depending on the vendor, and lasts me about a month and half.

Hi hello, I cannot live without this stuff. We have 4 flavors in the pantry at all times because it's such a staple. Way more effective and tastes better than energy drinks. My favorite flavors are watermelon, green apple, and blueberry lemonade, but my husband is really into the vanilla chai. Excellent product, definitely recommend for workout boosts and mid-afternoon slumps.

I have looked all over for these at decent prices. Amazon sells around $20. And that's the cheapest so far. Has anyone found it at a better deal?

Does this leave you jittery? Or is it a good amount of energy?
