So I was excited to try out the new Stimaholic from Genomyx. I really enjoy their other supplements, so when they sent us a bottle, I used it my first workout of the week...yesterday, which was back day. Time to grow some wings. I am not going to go into all the ingredients, but mainly focus on flavor and effects from it. If you want to know about the ingredients, check out the review Dave did here.
Now I took this product twice...once in the morning for energy/focus and once pre-workout.
This is the first thing you witness when taking a pre-workout. The flavor I got...Red Apple. I was very excited to try this flavor. First time ever...I have had Green Apple...but not Red Apple. It smelled delicious. And I can say it tasted that way as well. A lot like an apple. Was very refreshing...and a perfect drink on the way to the gym or on my way to work.
Like most pre-workouts, it mixed very well. I use a Blender Bottle which was perfect. Mixed 1-1.5 scoops into about 15oz of ice cold water. Was perfect.
For Anytime Energy/Focus
This product was great. I used it in place of my daily Monster energy drink. As I mentioned before, it tastes great, so no problems there. It gave me plenty of energy this morning...and it's about 3pm right now and I am still going strong. The focus was good too. I am in the process of moving right now, so a lot on my mind, but this helped me focus on work. I haven't felt any type of crash either...so far anyway. So if you are looking for an anytime energy boost, definitely give this a try. I would only use 1/2 to 1 scoop though...felt pretty good at that dose.
Before the Gym / Pre-Workout
Alright...so this where I noticed it...the Yohimbine. Yohimbine and I don't work out well together. It gives me the chills and sweats pretty bad. I have taken many products with it and I just don't get a good workout due to the constant cold chills and sweats. Now many people are fine with this ingredient...my one buddy loves it. But me, nope. It just interupts my workout too much. I got great energy from this, but the chills is one thing I hate. That is why I will probably continue to take this product for energy and focus, but not as a pre-workout.
If you don't have a problem with Yohimbine, I think this product could be great for you. Definitely gives you energy and focus, just want you need to work, studying, the gym etc. I would recommend starting with 1/2-1 scoop and access your tolerance from there.
We should have this product within a couple weeks. For now, check out the rest of the line of Genomyx supplements!
