Genmyx SPEED Xtreme New Revolutionary Pre Workout Review
Genmyx SPEED Xtreme New Revolutionary Pre Workout Review First Look:
I’ve never tried speed before, it doesn’t appeal to me. MDMA was good while my clubbing days were in existence and I could recover in time for work.
However, considering it takes me half a week to recover from a can of Pepsi these days I think narcotics are well and truly out of my depth.
I am reliably informed it is a great high, followed by deathly, horrendous lows. Now, the boozy blues are enough to put me out of kilter for a few days so let’s just consider this dose of SPEED from Genmyx…I mean, it seems safe enough…
Tomorrow will be the last game of the rugby season for me and potentially for my local team as a move is imminent. Well, apart from the rugby tour, but I am usually so drunk I’m not sure if I ever even step on the field and if I do I’m almost certainly naked.
So tonight is a big one, will I have found another great rugby pre workout to help with my shrugs and triceps tonight?
Well it is HRH Majesty the Queen’s birthday today and I am sure she is tuning in to find out…
Beta-alanine – Supplementation of this non essential amino acid aids the production of carnosine. That’s a compound that plays a role in muscle endurance in high-intensity exercise.
That said, studies have been small and not entirely conclusive.
Beta Alanine does give many users that tingly/itchy feeling. Some love it, others hate it.
I think it is best described at Chillblains – i.e when you go in to a warm room after your hands have been exposed to the cold and they start to feel itchy.
Green Tea – well known to have many powerful health benefits. Clinical studies suggest that green tea extract may boost metabolism and help burn fat.
One study found that the combination of green tea and caffeine improved weight loss and maintenance in people who were overweight and moderately obese.
Some researchers think that substances in green tea known as catechins are responsible for the herb’s fat-burning effect. Green tea extract is found in many a good fat burning supplement.
Creatine – A well regarded supplement.
Supplementation increases creatine storage and promotes a faster regeneration of adenosine triphosphate between high intensity exercises. These improved outcomes will increase performance and promote greater training adaptations.
Olive – Olive oil is widely used in many foods and its ability, like avocado, to reduce the bad (LDL) cholesterol is fairly well known. These are great to have in your diet.
Caffeine Citrate – Caffeine citrate is a central nervous system stimulant. Yet can causes a number of unwanted issues such as, hypertension, tachycardia, irritability, restlessness, hypoglycaemia, hyperglycaemia, fluid and electrolyte imbalance.
Dicaffeine Malate – Caffeine and Malic Acid bonded. Malic acid is found in apples and the two combined help prevent the crash once the caffeine has worn off. This is found in Mr. Hyde Cutz but very little in terms of scientific studies to be found.
Caffeine – It stimulates the central nervous system (CNS), heart, muscles, and the centers that control blood pressure to give you an extra boost and hit that PB.
Caffeine Anhydrous is the purest form of caffeine so always look out for it.
This is found in 4 Gauge which is the best pre-workout.
Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) – Gives you more energy and boost your metabolism, helping you shed unwanted pounds. Ensure you are not deficient in Vitamin B12 so you can do that quick 10 miler at 5am…
Vitamin B6 – This helps the body use and store the energy from protein and carbohydrates.
1 sachet with water which is 4411mg. That’s quite a small amount and much less than what many other pre workout formulas offer.
The sachet was smooth lemon flavor which I loved.
Very tasty, zingy and of a good consistency. Didn’t feel weak at all considering the small amount of ingredients.
There’s not a massive amount of total ingredient mass nor number of ingredients.
That said, what is included is pretty good.
B6 and B12 are always good to have, they are good for energy plus they can actually help reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems for those exposed to high levels of air pollution. You can read a piece on that, here.
The 3 Caffeine varieties found in here all help stimulate and then recover to prevent a crash…a nice tough and I certainly felt it.
Now Beta-alanine is a funny one, I could feel its effects almost immediately, however, the results are patchy when it comes to muscle endurance.
Creatine is always welcome, however, to be really effective you need continuous supplementation to maximize the benefits.
So how did it feel?
After a few drinks of it and a few minutes later I was raring to hit the gym.
I put aside what I was going to do and just headed off to do the weights. While lifting I felt good and energized.
I didn’t feel a crash nor any unwanted side effects, I also managed to stay focused enough to just get on with my workout.
I put in some solid lifts and increased the weight for my shrugs by 11lbs.
Is Green Tea and Olive extract necessary in a pre workout? They’re commonly found in fat burners.
I would much rather these be replaced by something such as Beet for Nitric Oxide and coconut water for re-hydration or even Potassium which would help prevent my muscles from cramping in a game of rugby.
I would also have liked a larger dose for a more explosive experience, that would turn me in to a monster.
I guess also while you do feel Beta-Alanine, is it really helping my workout or just making me thing it is doing something other than make my limbs and ass feel tingly?
Caffeine Citrate has the potential to cause some unwanted side effects such as high blood pressure and irritability.
Genmyx SPEED Xtreme New Revolutionary Pre Workout Review Conclusion:
I really like this, it has room for improvement but it felt like it was working almost immediately whereas some pre workouts just do not work at all.
It is missing a few ingredients to be a game changer or a competitor to out favorite but it almost wipes the floor with many other I have tried.
I find pre workout supplements to be a great leveler because manufacturers simply cannot hide behind ineffective ingredients or proprietary blends as you can tell within minutes if they work or not.
This does. For that it should be applauded.
Yes, a few additional ingredients would help this moreso, plus a larger overall dose.
