I wanted to talk about a supplement that was actually one of the first supplements that I have tried. We all remember getting that first supplement and the excitement that came with it. I am sure that there are some of you, who, like me, were asked all sorts of silly questions my nosy people you live with about what it is. You might even remember hearing them say all kinds of bad things and trying to put your knowledge of sports nutrition down. However, I bet that you are bigger and stronger than they are, so there!
Anyways, the supplement that was one of my first was SuperPump Max by Gaspari Nutrition. I first tried this supplement when it was being released with some new flavors. I picked up a green apple and a watermelon. One thing that kind of scared me, at first, was how much was considered a serving. I was worried that I might be overdoing it so I only used one scoop at first. Something that I wanted to note about this product was that it did not contain any beta alanine. I heard a lot of people online complaining that this supplement would not be like the others since it was missing that ingredient.
Although, I am someone that likes the feeling that beta alanine in a supplement gives him, I was not so easily turned away and still wanted to get this supplement. After I did get it, I was so happy that I made the decision to do so. First off, part of this shout out has to do with just how well it tasted. Some of us know just how nasty some pre workout supplements can taste. I mean. it can be really hard to down some of those other products once, let alone 2-3 times a week!
SuperPump Max was always a supplement that mixed together nicely for me. That was something that bothered me with the other various products out there, they were so hard to mix! No one wants to drink their drink before going to the gym and ingesting a big clump of powder, it is gross! Beyond that, you have to constantly mix it and make sure that everything is getting dissolved, not a good look.
This product really got me energized and ready to go lift something heavy. The energy has always been more clean feeling and not so chemical. What I mean is that I wasn’t feeling like my heart was going to beat out of my chest but more of a well rested feeling. Trust me, guys and girls, just because there is no beta alanine in this supplement does not mean it is weak. One thing that some people say badly about this supplement is that there are some bathroom issues that can happen. To be honest, I have noticed this with most of the pre-workouts that I have tried, here and there. I am not a scientist or anything but I think that that has do to with the caffeine content.
If this had happened only while using SuperPump Max, I would think differently, but this is an issue that I have had since I started taking these supplements so I don’t think it is fair to throw Gaspari under the bus like that. If you are in need of a solid pre-workout supplement that you can count on to get better results, this is a great contender.
