You do NOT need pre-workout, but it helps!
This article is my experience and review of P3EAKING, a pre-workout supplement. As always when taking new supplements you should consult your physician first . Always consume supplements at your own risk. – This is NOT a paid review. –
Are you interested in a pre-workout supplement? Are you also concerned about being jittery, itchy, or completely restless at the end of the night? Do you work out at within a few hours of bed? I feel your pain. Pre-workouts sometimes feel out of reach because all of those issues. To top that, it can be hard to find a pre-workout that works they way it claims. I have had all of those problems, until I started using P3AKING, a Stimulant Free pre-workout.
There are a lot of opinions on what you should and should not take. If you are looking for direct advice on what supplements to take, STOP reading.
If you are interested in a review from someone who actually uses the product, continue on.
I will be upfront with you, I love trying new pre-workout supplements and not all of them work for me. In fact a lot of the claims of pre-workout are over embellished. But P3EAKING has, for me, given the results it promises.
First and foremost!
What exactly is pre-workout?
In short, it is a supplement designed to be taken before exercise to enhance your performance during strenuous activity.
An example would be black coffee.
Black coffee is often consumed as a pre-workout for the caffeine it has.
Caffeine stimulates the central nervous system (and makes the 9-5 way better!)
Now onto the review!
P3AKING is a pre-workout designed around the premise of no BS just results. Is that some ground breaking claim? Not at all. In fact many companies claiming the same thing, with further testing, fall very short of that claim. The supplement, and fitness industry for that matter, is saturated with claims of miracle products. Sometimes it’s really difficult to tell the good products from the frauds. Luckily for you, I have already tested this product and below is the overview and review. Enjoy.
It claims to increase Strength, Endurance, and Pump.
In my case, that is exactly what happened.
I have had consistent results and am now on my second can or P3EAKING.
My Strength increase can not be quantified, as I did not record results. It is more of a physical feeling I get when lifting. When I do not use P3AKING the weights feel more difficult to lift. When I use it, the weights feel lighter. It’s probably just a mental thing, but it still feels great!
The Endurance is real with P3EAKING. I just want to keep on lifting, but I don’t feel jittery or over stimulated like some other pre-workouts. I push for longer and with more intensity in my workouts. This can be a good or bad thing, but so far it has been good, with zero crash afterwords, due to not having stimulants.
The PUMP with P3AKING is the truth. It is awesome! Even on the days I feel tired and a little dehydrated, still got a great pump. I do not chase the pump, but not a single person who has had a good pump can deny how awesome the pump feels!
All that being said, please take in to consideration that I have had great results, but that does not mean it will be the exact same for you. Everyone is different, but the ingredients in the product are designed to do what is claimed, and for me, they do.
Now that I have told you how it has worked for me, what’s in this stuff?
Below are the ingredients from the BioPrime Nutrition website.
Creapure© is 100% HPLC, GMP certified pure creatine monohydrate. Creapure’s© purity is of the highest quality allowing optimal absorption without bloating. Creatine is the most effective nutritional supplement available for increased strength and lean body mass. This also supplies your muscles the energy to improve anaerobic capacity and power while enhancing muscle recovery.*
Increase your power and endurance in just seven days! PeakO2™ was designed to target and revolutionize every aspect of your workout. From oxygen utilization and anaerobic power to exhaustion time and exercise capacity. If you need performance you need PeakO2™! PeakO2™ is an organic-certified combination of six Ayurvedic mushroom strains grown and harvested right here in the U.S. These mushrooms are powerful aptogens, which allow athletes to “adapt” to an overcome physical and mental stress, giving you the extra edge to take your training to the next level. PeakO2™ contains high levels of beta glucans and L-Ergothioneine, a “master” antioxidant that fights damage from oxidative stress in the body, helping athletes train longer, recover faster, and feel better throughout the process.
HydroMax™ is a patented, highly concentrated form of powdered glycerol, and silica. It contains 65% glycerol thereby increasing its potency and funtion. The end result of this is exceptional hydration and superior pumps compared to traditional GMS. Why HydroMax™? Athletes can benefit from HydroMax™ as it drives water into the muscle cells inducing a major pump, whereas most traditional pump supplements operate of increasing Nitric Oxide (NO) production. HydroMax™ fosters water based pumps. With continual use, the effects of HydroMax™ build on itself. With proper water intake, and regular use of glycerol, you will increase overall blood plasma levels due to the extra water your body will retain. This also helps to regulate your body temperature when working out by ensuring you won’t succumb to dehydration due to loss of fluids and electrolytes caused by profuse sweating.
Be aware, that the legal supplement industry is not regulated by the FDA, and when you take supplements from these companies you are putting your money and trust into the company to provide you with what is described on the packaging.
Lets move on to the “important” aspects.
Mixability – Drink it immediately after shaking/ stirring. The powder settles very quickly. The products motto is If it doesn’t clump, you don’t pump. Take that as you will.
Taste – Neutral, it doesn’t really have a taste. I have mixed it with a couple flavors of BCAAs and it has all tasted just fine.
Cost – Above average, but you get what you pay for. Higher cost generally means higher quality. At $50 a can, with 30 servings, it costs more than some other pre-workouts per serving, but it is not the most expensive on the market.
Overall the product is, in my opinion, worth checking out. I really enjoy it and when I do have late workouts, I don’t worry about not being able to sleep. This product gives me that extra motivation when I workout.
