Happy Sunday, everyone!
So I have literally been the worst person with accountability when it comes to updating my blog. Whenever I have free time I’m either stacking more plates onto a barbell or studying for my personal training exam. I literally need to work on getting a social life back. 😉
But today, I have an exciting little post. I was contacted on Instagram by American Muscle Supplements when I posted a picture of my Fitmixer Aminos. I was saying that I needed to find a new preworkout, since that one really didn’t do much for me anymore. They told me to check out their products and eventually sent me samples of their pre-workout mix Warpath and their clean as can be Isolyn Hydrolyzed Whey Protein.
They sent me two samples of each, so I was able to try multiple days/different workouts with them. Let me tell you, this stuff is the bomb dot com. The protein is something everyone can get on board with. It’s literally just 100% hydrolyzed whey protein isolate (cold filtered!) with stevia and natural flavors. It mixes insanely well and has an amazing taste, which surprised me at first. Since there aren’t a ton of sweeteners or flavors added I assumed it would taste bland. Not the case. They tasted like milkshakes. They sent me the banana and chocolate flavors. Chocolate is where it’s at in my book, but for someone who doesn’t usually ever look at a banana flavor, this flavor was crazy good. I could see it making a pretty epic protein banana bread.
As for the Warpath… I LOVED IT! I was smashing personal bests in the gym like it ain’t no thang, people! I literally did a 175 pound deadlift for 3 sets of 8 reps and a 155 back squat of 3 sets at 8 reps. I was a beast.
Literally, I was about ready to tear the roof off of my gym. Sounds like I was cracked out on caffeine, right? WRONG. There’s the same amount of caffeine that’s in like one cup of coffee. So for this stimulant sensitive gal, it was perfect. The focus and intensity I felt in my workout came from the nootropic factors. Basically it’s a new trend of low stimulant pre-workouts to focus more on mental focus and clarity versus the physical energy you get from caffeine. It was epic and made this personal trainer and fitness nutrition specialist in the making very happy.
I obviously highly recommend this company to anyone who is in the market for a new supplement company and/or product. After trying both of these products I basically sprinted up my stairs after the gym to order their protein (Isolyn Chocolate) and a non-stimulant fat burner (Banish) to help with my competition prep. I was going to buy Warpath, and probably will when I have more money, but instead I went with ProSupps Dr. Jekyll low stimulant pre-workout for now. It was like $40 cheaper, so I hope it’s just as good. I’ll report back on that one. If it isn’t, I obviously will be buying Warpath like the addict I am. 😉
Before anyone asks, no they didn’t expect me to do a review. They didn’t pay me. They just sent me free samples like the awesome company that they are and then I went hog wild on their website on my own. I just wanted to share my little find with y’all, since I know most lifters are always looking for new supps to try! Also, I sniped all those pictures from their facebook, since I obviously did not have the containers to show you guys. 🙂 Thanks again, American Muscle! I look forward to getting my competition prep on with your help!
