Wife Loves It review by Mr. Moriarty on 2/23/2017
This review is for my wife, since I buy it for her. She loves this stuff. The Watermelon is her flavor of choice. I have tried to get her on stronger ones like Mesomorph or Jacked Up, but she likes the way this makes her feel. She does a lot of Crossfit and this gets her through each workout with no big crash or anything afterwords. It's cheap enough and she goes through a container probably one a month or so...so not a big expense at all. I personally think it is ok, but I like the stronger stuff...but then again I weigh about 60lbs more than her too.
Tastes Great & Works review by Allen Morton on 2/22/2017
I am not a big stim guy, so this was perfect. Amino Energy tastes great in all the flavors I have tried. And it's not over stimulating. Don't crash and don't get the jitters. It's the perfect pre-workout for me. Not sure what else to say. It works, so it gets 5 stars.
A reliable Energy Blend! review by Christopher on 9/14/2016
So I have tried alot of energy/amino blends in the past couple, some disapppint, some meet expectations, whilst other exceed. It holds a middle ground for me. I've had Grape, Orange, and Fruit Punch thus far, and have found all three of those flavors mentioned delicious and refreshing. Orange being my favorite. One serving size of two scoops is more than adequate as far as flavoring, but I have found two servings (four scoops) required for the energy effect I am looking for. For me, two servings and you can feel the beta alanine and energy blend, which (again just in my case) lasts me about two and a half to three hours. That length of time is perfect for powering through an intense workout or just as a morning pick-me-up in place of coffee or carbonated energy drinks. Very minimal foaming which quickly settles allows for immediate consumption. One ice you have a thirst quenching and refreshing powerful energy drink at a fraction of the cost of other brands' prices. This not a quick-to-market shoddily formulated fad product put out swiftly to capitalize on emerging trends in order to swindle gullible and uninformed rubes out of their honestly begotten monies. Optimum Nutrition has been around for years and probably was one of If not the first energy/amino blends produced and released. I generally always keep a tub of it around in addition to other, more expensive energy/blends. If you haven't tried Amino Energy...then get on it!!!
Great product review by Ron on 8/31/2016
This is a great product. I use it in my pre workout shake and my intra shake. It helps me recover to. This amino energy has a lot of bcaa's to so if that is something that you are looking for then you pretty much hit it on the head with product. I have been using this product for a lil over a year now and i love it.
solid product review by William on 12/15/2015
Awesome product for a multitude of uses. Just everyday energy or preworkout shake. It doesn't give overpowering energy so it doesn't make you all jittery like most preworkouts, which I like. The taste is awesome as well. The only thing I would change is more BCAAs.
Love for long workouts review by Triston on 8/24/2015
I like to do a lot when I go to the gym, so my workouts usually last upwards of 1.5-2 hours depending on the day. I feel more ready to keep going hard on days that I use intraworkouts like Amino Energy. I get the orange flavor because I am an orange flavor anything fan, and this stuff tastes like orange kool aid! I also just enjoy drinking something with good flavor instead of my normal water. The price is pretty low, making it easy to squeeze into your shopping cart, even if you're on a budget.
Good for intraworkout review by Irving on 7/12/2015
I take this product halfway thru my workout and I love it. This product truly helped me get through those tough workouts that lasted too long. I would recommend this to any friend looking for an extra boost of energy halfway thru my workout. The taste and mixability is great and pretty cheap to add to your supplement list.
I love it review by Bubba on 6/15/2015
I love it. Like most Optimum Nutrition products the flavoring system is great. I personally like the watermelon the most at the current time. Seems like my taste preference tends to change after a few runs with the same flavor. The pre workout factor is quite mild compared to others but still effective. If you are a stimulant junkie i would not recommend this for you. It gives me a subtle smooth energy and focus without the crackhead buzz effect. The added amino acids are also great as they help with recovery and intra workout energy. The cost is not the cheapest but i have seen worst for these types of combination products.
Overall fantastic product review by K on 1/22/2015
This is overall a great product for just something to sip on during the day for energy or use as a preworkout. I get a nice clean energy every time from it and I never experience a crash. Awesome!
My favourite! review by Jess on 12/17/2014
I love this amino energy pre-workout. I am really caffeine-sensitive and I have found that other pre-workouts make me way too jittery and anxious. This pre-workout does not make me jittery or anxious and gives me that perfect energy boost that I need to improve my workouts! I use about 2-2.5 scoops and for me, that's perfect! I have been using it for about 6 months during most of my workouts (~4 times per week) and it still works great for me.
Also, it tastes amazing. I love watermelon and green apple, blue razz is okay, and I just ordered grape which my friends have said is amazing as well!
Great review by Peyton on 12/15/2014
Overall, this is a great product. I always use this for my pre-workout. It doesn't give me that unwanted buzz, but I always have enough energy to get through my energy. If I am bulking, I will only use one scoop. If I'm cutting and going low on carbs, I'll go up to 2 scoops. This is more than enough, and this way you save it and it doesn't run out quickly.
Great review by Peyton on 11/6/2014
Overall, this is a great product. I use this no matter what my goals are. I use it right before working out. I don't want a "buzz" like other pre-workouts give you, but I just want some energy to get through the workout, so I only use one scoop. Because of this, it lasts much longer. I also take a scoop whenever I am running low on energy throughout the day.
very good product review by Peyton on 9/23/2014
I am usually not a big fan of pre-workouts, but optimum nutrition amino energy is one I would suggest. One serving is 2 scoops, but I just take 1. I don't really do it to get a ton of energy, but I do it so that I don't have a bad workout. It works quite well for that, and it lasts awhile.
Very Good product review by Peyton on 9/15/2014
Great product. Amino Energy is one of the few pre-workouts that I didn't have to use lots of scoops to get the full effect
Good clean energy and focus review by Maggie on 9/11/2014
If you have a sensitivity to high amounts of caffeine or have found other preworkout powders too strong, this would be a great product for you! I didn't experience any of the physical discomfort (itching and tingling, stomach ache, headache) that I've experienced from other preworkouts. it provides a mellow, clean energy, but what I liked most about it was the increased mental focus it provided. This makes it not only good for before work outs, but any time during the day that you need a little extra boost. I've only had the orange flavor, and it's absolutely delicious, which is something I can't say for many other preworkout powders I've tried.
Good Product review by Moody1983 on 5/8/2014
Good taste without the crash. I like the Green Tea being used as a source of caffeine. Good product
great taste review by Diane on 11/18/2013
Great tasting product! It wasn't sold out (as it has been the last few times I tried to order)!! I wish it didn't have sucralose, since I prefer all natural products. Good energy and aminos!!
Great product for intra workout!! review by Johnny Juan on 1/21/2013
Now this is energy with out the crash. Good, clean energy - it's been my pre-workout since it first came out. I'm a little caffeine sensitive and the other products (BSN, 3d, SuperPump) would have me wired all day and night. This is perfect - no crash, no headache/stomach issues, great energy and prefect for a push in the gym. Taste is great too - I've tried all flavors except Blue Raspberry. Orange being my favorite and Watermelon my least (it's not that sweet). Grape tastes just like those old icey pops. Great product !!!
Great tasting product that delivers plenty of energy in a small dose review by David on 11/6/2012
This product delivers on all counts--mixes well with water, tastes great, delivers a noticeable boost quickly and it's very economically priced. What's not to like?
Clean energy with aminos. review by Raymond on 7/18/2012
Really liked this product. Typical pwo's give me unpleasant side effects. This is not as intense as it relies on good old fashioned caffeine. Also contains beta alinine and arginine which I like and of course bcaa's. I drink 4 scoops pwo, sometimes 1 or 2 scoops throughout the day.
9/10 for Amino Energy review by Mike L. on 8/17/2011
I tried this as a sample pack for sipping on during my workout. I mixed it up with some water in a bottle. I noticed that it gave me a nice clean extra energy boost during my workout. There was no crash after-wards or headaches.
The ingredient profile is pretty good except for the Arginine which is useless.
The Grape flavor is very good and enjoyable to drink. It's not the best flavor i've tried but certainly one of the better ones!
Overall Rating: 9/10
Taste Rating: 8/10
