Muscle Pharm Assault
Muscle Pharm has blown up the supplement industry in the past year they become breakout brand of the year on Bodybuilding.com, they have 4 products in the top 50 most purchased one of them being MP Assault! This product is actually the in the top spot for MP products being at #12 in the top 50 as of today. I was able to get my hands on two tubs of this product (Blue Raspberry, and Green Apple) I’ve given them both a try for taste purposes and I have to say that this product taste awesome!
I’ll start with the Blue Raspberry flavor: it mixes pretty well, but the scoops are pretty large so I would recommend a bit more water than traditional preworkout products. The taste is incredible it’s vary sweet and full of flavor it reminds me of a blue freeze pop or a blue huggie that we all had when we were kids.
As for the Green Apple the taste is slightly sour which is awesome for someone like me. I really enjoyed the sour flavor of the green apple it taste almost identical to a liquid jolly rancher. You honestly couldn’t go wrong with either choice with these flavors
I didn’t opt to get the Fruit Punch flavor because I’ve had terrible experiences with Fruit Punch flavored products in the past so I tend to stay away from them, however after tasting these two flavors I would say the Fruit Punch probably isn’t to bad my guess would be like a Kool-aid flavor.
Anyways enough with the flavor lets get down to the real reason anyone would want this product Does it work? The label says to start out with 1/2 scoop (the serving size) for moderate training days and for intense training days take 1 full scoop 20-30 minutes before training. I started with 1/2 scoop and it did decent nothing incredible I felt fatigued towards the end of my training, so the next day I bumped it up to a full scoop and had pretty much the same results.
After thinking this product just isn’t for me I went over the ingredients again and the profile looks solid, so I asked a guy at my gym who is a MP maniac and he said to mix 1/2 scoop preworkout and take another 1/2 scoop intra workout to keep they fast absorbing chemicals in constant supply throughout the training session.
The difference was night and day! the 1/2 scoop did the exact same thing as the first day, a little boost but nothing to impressive but as I started taking swigs of the extra 1/2 scoop intra workout I could feel myself being recharged and ready to attack the weights with full force until the end. I didn’t want to stop I just kept adding in sets after sets trying to gas out my muscles, but the energy seem’d endless. Finally I was able to call it a day, but MP Assault really shines when taken correctly.
There is a slight pump with this product too, but it isn’t as prominent as I would have liked it to be I’m always trying to get the biggest and fullest pump I can in the gym, but I wasn’t disappointed because of the awesome energy and ability to train longer and harder.
This product is a bit pricey for having to take 2 servings each time you train so I think you could probably find a better product out there that is more cost efficient. But I don’t get to hung up on the prices of products like this because I figure if your considering purchasing the product then you already know the prices. So having said that I would get this product a 4/5 stars
