While the flavor options for this are limited the taste of what is available is very well received by pretty much everyone that gives it a try. When mixed with water in a blender bottle you won't have any issues with it not dissolving. This is awesome as we all hate it when our pre-workout sticks on the sides and bottom of our containers. Additionally, it won't have that gritty feeling going down because it does dissolve completely. The taste comes with a burst of flavor that is quite potent. For some, it may even be a little too strong. Overall, you won't be disappointed with the flavor or aftertaste of this product as most find it significantly better than others in its class.


MuscleTech is known for not offering a ton of flavor options and this product and this is no exception. You will only have a choice between two flavors. You can purchase it in Cherry Limeade or Ice Blue Raspberry. The Ice Blue Raspberry is quite a bit cheaper than the Cherry Limeade and therefore has the most comments on flavor. It is well-liked but will leave your tongue and lips blue. The Cherry Limeade while more expensive is also really well-liked. The flavors are both quite strong but don't leave that awful aftertaste like most other pre-workout supplements.


The consistency of this pre-workout is exceptional. It mixes very simply and leaves you with a clean non-gritty drink that won't leave an awful chalky feel or bad aftertaste in your mouth. Many products like this don't mix up well and this not only means your not getting the whole dose, it also means you may not even be able to swallow it because of a terrible mouthfeel. When using products made by MuscleTech you won't have to worry too much about consistency as their constant research and development seems to make consistency better and better every time.


One thing this brand is most certainly known for is the effectiveness of their products. They pay attention to what it takes to help you meet your goals. Great energy, superior focus, motivated drive, and a super pump is what you need every time you step into the gym. When using this product that is exactly what you will get. While you may get a bit jittery you won't have to worry about any major crash and this product will hang with you for quite some time. So, regardless of how much time you want to spend working up a sweat, you know this will hang right in there with you and you will have great sessions every time.


The ingredient list for this pre-workout is not quite as long as others we have encountered. That is not to say it is less than them, quite honestly it is better than most others and the mix they use is very effective. It contains Calcium, Beta-alanine, L-Citrulline, Creatine Hydrochloride, Caffeine Anhydrous, L-Theanine, Rhodiola Extract, and Yohimbe Extract. they do add a few other minor ingredients like Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Natural and Artificial Flavoring, Sucralose, and Acesulfame-Potassium. These are all commonly seen in pre-workout supplements but as you can see there isn't a bunch of added ingredients that you don't need.


MuscleTech Neurocore Pre-Workout has three hundred and twenty milligrams of caffeine per serving. While this is not the highest on the market it certainly does pack a punch. If you are sensitive to caffeine or it is not part of your daily routine you will want to be careful as this is a pretty high amount per serving and could lead to adverse effects. For those that can handle their caffeine, this is enough to get you moving and really help keep your energy levels up. You will also want to be careful about taking this product too late at night as it may affect your sleep patterns. Meanwhile, if you have a very high tolerance for caffeine this may not be quite enough and there are other products out there that carry a higher content of it.


When it comes to sugar you won't have to worry about adding any to your daily intake when using this product. It is sweetened with Sucralose which is an artificial sweetener derived from cane sugar. Sucralose, when overused in a product, can make it gaggingly sweet and often times it is the reason for a truly terrible aftertaste. MuscleTech has found the perfect balance of Sucralose in their products and because of this, you won't have to worry about it being too sweet. Additionally, there are not very many reports of a bad aftertaste which in our opinion is a major plus.


This product contains an ingredient called Beta-Alanine. What this does is open up your blood vessels which increase your blood flow. This allows more nutrients and Oxygen to get to your muscles. By doing this you will see your performance increase. Not only will you be able to work out harder but you will be able to last longer. Your pumps will increase and your body won't quit on you quite as quickly. Increased circulation is something that should be expected with your pre-workout and if you aren't finding your pumps to be so great it is probably because your supplement is lacking in this area.


Users of this product by MuscleTech have not reported a problem with the typical pre-workout crash. Their formula has a great balance of ingredients to help you avoid this no matter how hard you push it at the gym. This product will hang tough throughout your entire workout and then some. With a slow decline of energy, you won't have to worry about your entire day being wasted to a serious nap after heading home from the gym. Adding some extra Protein through supplements or snacks can aid in any crash you may experience and may even help with overall muscle building potential.


Low-end products may have a ton of fillers which are meant to take up room and make it look like you are getting more bang for your buck. Trusting this brand is to know that you are not going to have to worry about useless filler ingredients. Some may argue that flavoring is a filler but if you want a taste to your pre-workout there has to be some sort of flavoring in it. The flavor is strong but it's not being used as a filler. All the items in this formula are there for a reason and not just to fool you into thinking it is better than it truly is.


Looking at the supplement facts for this item they recommend starting with one scoop as a serving but they also give daily values for two scoops. Depending on your tolerance level for this type of product will depend on if you want to start with one or two scoops. There are no size variations when purchasing. This means you will get a little better than seven ounces regardless of which flavor you decide you want to try. Seven ounces will get you roughly thirty-three servings if using a one scoop serving. This is enough to last the month, however, if you are using two scoops a day you will need to double up if you work out every day and are also using pre-workout on a daily basis.

Side Effects

There are a ton of side effects that are common among pre-workout options. As for this one, there are very few reported side effects. If you have any issues with caffeine then you may experience stomach upset, nausea, vomiting, or headaches. Not so sensitive to caffeine? Then you really don't have much to worry about, you may get some tingling sensations in your legs, arms, and face. You won't have to worry about flushing. It is not recommended that this product be used by people under the age of eighteen or by women that are pregnant as caffeine at these levels can cause problems for both.


Taking a pre-workout supplement comes with some expectations. You want something that is going to get you stoked to head to the gym and kill it. Additionally, we want it to help us pump hard and fast while keeping our focus on the task at hand. Trusting in this option will give you all of these things. They are all major advantages in your journey to a healthy body. It offers good flavor and an excellent consistency. You will be able to rely on it for a long time and you won't have to wait a long time for it to kick in which means even if you take it upon arrival at your gym or before working out at home by the time you are done stretching you will be ready to take on the world.


Overall, the disadvantages to this product are exceptionally limited. Some people don't like the fact that you can only order it in two flavor varieties as they like to switch it up often. Another downfall to it is that you don't have any size options. With only thirty-three single servings per container if you need to use two scoops you will need to buy more than one to make it through the month or you will be purchasing it more than once a month. These again are pretty minor things and most people can get past them because of the effectiveness of it.


MuscleTech is known for making some of the best supplements around. They are beloved all over the world and for very good reason. They make superior products that really work. Ensuring that the ingredients used are of the utmost quality means you get an awesome pre-workout every time. The flavors while limited are also of good quality and the simplicity in mixing it is something we feel ups it even more. Your results after using it will prove to you that the quality of this product is untouched by most others in its class.


In terms of price, the Ice Blue Raspberry is a better value than the Cherry Limeade. When looking at all the aspects of these two options of pre-workout we feel they are both a great value. The cost is quite affordable on most budgets and in the world of pre-workout supplements, their cost is quite average. Good flavor and consistent results add heavily to the overall value. You will get the focus, drive, and ambition to crush your activity each and every day that you decide to have a serving of this supplement.
