SCI_MX’s X-PLODE RIPPEDCORE is a pre-workout drink. It contains 50% of your RDA of vitamin B6 and B12 to help combat fatigue and increase energy. It also contains their “THERMO-CORE COMPLEX” which is basically a load of caffiene stuff – green coffee bean extract, green tea, guarana and ginseng. Their workout pump has optimum levels of caffeine to reduce perceived exertion and increase alertness.
They suggest you take one serving 30 minutes before training or an event, no more than 2x a day and to allow 4 hours between servings. You add one scoop to 250ml of water, shake (or mix if you don’t have a shaker) and let it settle before drinking. On first glance, it looks a little sandy, but as you shake it, it comes up a lovely orange colour.
This stuff.. works. Seriously. I gave it a taste test and proceeded to bounce off the walls. As most of you probably already know, I suffer with Chronic Fatigue. This gave me so much energy, I was honestly surprised. I was expecting a little boost but I felt so driven and full of energy, it really hit me after about 20 minutes. It allowed me to go further than I usually would with a workout when exertion would usually hit. I tried it again before a workout, I felt so good, I could do more reps and I lifted heavier weights. My general performance was a lot better than it is usually, so I really got a hardcore workout in. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants some extra “umph” for their workout. There are lots of products in the range for afters if you’re in to that sort of thing.
