    Shock Therapy I've tried just about every pre-workout supplement on the market. Although this isn't my absolute favorite, this is a very good product. The price/servings is unbeatable and Universal is one of the best companies in the business. The energy/pump from Shock Therapy is very good, but I also notice head aches shortly after my workout. Im not sure if it's from the stim's or something else in the product, but I haven't noticed it with any other pre-workout supplement.

    Taste- I bought the Grape flavor and am 100% satisfied. Definitely easy to drink!

    Mixing- 1 scoop with 8oz of water is extremely easy to mix. There are no clumps and it mixes relatively quick

    Energy- The energy is decent compared to others. It isn't as noticable as NO-Xplode or NO-Shotgun, but it definitely gives you a boost.

    Pump- The pump is definitely noticable. I've seen veins that I normally don't see while taking Shock Therapy, and the pump last's throughout the entire workout.

    Value- For the price/servings, this product cannot be beat. You can find it for under $30, and it last's for 50 workouts. Definitely a bargain!

    100% Premium Whey Protein Who would've thought such a great protein would be found at Wal-Mart. I was busy shopping when I saw this for $14 and picked it up. The profile looked wonderful so I was expecting the taste/mixing ability to be wayy off. I was wrong! This stuff is no worse than any other protein on the market. It mixes great, taste's great, and has a pretty dang good profile!

    Taste - I figured this stuff would taste absolutely horrible. Considering it's from Wal-Mart and only cost $14, I wasn't expecting much. But this stuff actually tasted pretty dang good. It's no Muscle Milk chocolate milk, but it definitely taste better than ON Gold Standard and Dymatize Elite Whey. I bought the Chocolate Flavor and highly recommend it!

    Ease of Mixing - Considering it's mainly WC, I was expecting the mixing to be rather hard. It ended up being relatively easy actually. I threw 2 scoops in a shaker and it was fully disolved within 15-20 seconds of shaking.

    Value - Honestly, how could you go wrong? The profile is good and it's extremely cheap! Rather than spending $40-45 on most protein powders, you can buy 2 tubs of this for under $30.

    Golden Finish Controlled Labs has truly won me over with this one. Although the price is relatively high, this is a great post-workout recovery product. Before using Golden Finish, I used Real Gains post-workout. I feel that the extra-carbs/BCAA's speed recovery time and rebuild muscle like none other. Now that im cutting, I had to cut out the weightgainer and give this a go.

    The addition of Hydrolyzed Whey and Whey Isolate make this product better than any other post-workout supplement. Considering these are the 2 fastest absorbed proteins, they cannot be beat. It's nice to know that your getting an immediate delivery to protein to your muscles. Also, the addition of Aminogen and Carbogen make this product special. Considering carbohydrates are necessary post-workout to rebuild your muscles and feel them back up with glyocgen, this makes for a great addition.

    I used this product when it first hit the market and I could not be more satisfied. The increased recovery time has made a huge improvement on my training. Im not sure for days after a workout like usuual, but im perfectly ready to hit the gym the next day. I've heard a few complain about the taste, but I thought it tasted great! The only complain I have is the price. It would be nice if it had 20 servings rather than 15. But overall, a great product!

    1,3-Dimethylamylamine I consider myself a stimulant junkie. On a daily basis I take 1+grams of caffeine, and live off of coffee and energy drinks. Rather than buying Caffeine tabs as usual, I decided to give this one a shot. I was expecting a caffeine-like effect, but this stuff definitely exceeded my expectations.

    I've been using it for almost 3 weeks now and I have nothing but positive things to say about it. The claims of increased energy, mental clarity, and physical performance are all 100% true. I take a dose in the morning and pre-workout, and im energized almost the entire day. I feel focus, energized, and my endurance seems to be going up. One of the best things i've noticed is the appetite suppression aspect. I find it easier not to eat unhealthy snacks and keep to my eating every 2.5-3 hours.

    If your in need of an energy boost or better physical performance in the gym, I highly recommend this product. It is superior to caffeine alone and can be found for extremely cheap!

    Animal Flex First off, Universal is one of the most legit companies in the business. They've been putting out quality supplements for years! I've had bad joints for years, due to sports, and decided I would give this a shot. My expectations were high going in, and Animal Flex ended up living up to it.

    The pills aren't all that hard to take, but if you can't swallow them I wouldn't suggest buying this. There's a pretty high amount of them, but they aren't too hard to take. I started taking 1 pack a day and started noticing the benefits about 3-4 days in. My joints felt lubricated, rather than how they've always felt (stiff). I had zero joint pain throughout the entire duration of taking Animal Flex. I was able to workout hardever than ever and not have to worry about the next day joint pain.

    Being how cheap and effective this product is, it is a definite must buy! Your joints will feel brand new when taking it and it beats having to try multiple supplements for healthy joints. The ingredient profile is top notch and you can not lose with this product!
