Thank you Betancourt for allowing me to try out D-Stunner. I got my 1st workout in today while using it. Here are my initial thoughts:
TASTE 7/10 It tasted ok. I got the Fruit Punch flavor. I mixed it with 15oz of water and that seemed to be a good amount. It wasn't overly strong nor was it diluted. It tasted almost like Smarties which isn't really a bad thing. Smarties are good. It did have a funny aftertaste and it did have a supplement taste to it. I know there are pre-workouts out there that don't have a supplement taste. Taste isn't overly important to me, but at the same time using a pre-workout has become a ritual to me. It is very mental to me. I have a mentally draining job as a 3rd grade teacher. Physically I'm ready to go at 4:30-5, but mentally I need a wake up. I enjoy a pre that tastes good as that helps me get my mind right as I'm cruising to the gym from school. While not a spectacular tasting Pre, D-Stunner is tasty enough to fulfill that pre-workout ritual that I desire.
MIXABILITY 8/10 It did have a little very fine material at the bottom after shaking, but I wasn't drinking clumps. I was worried at first because when I opened it, it was in huge blocks and I had to use a fork and a lot of shaking to get it back to powder form. Didn't end up being an issue though.
WHAT'S IN IT 6.5/10 There are a lot of ingredients that I don't have a clue about. There are two that I'm familiar with and know that are effective. Beta alanine, creatine, and caffeine. However, I have no idea how much BA or caffeine is in a serving of D-Stunner. So if anyone knows, let me know. I will say that creatine in a pre-workout is not necessary, especially for me since I use it already and because the effects of creatine are not felt in the short term like caffeine. As I said I'd like to know how much caffeine and BA I'm getting so having the amounts per serving listed on the bottle are a MUST for me.
EFFECTIVENESS N/A I'm not gonna give it a score just yet. I've only used it once and I want to use a few times before I decide what it scores out of 10. I will say that I did notice a slight pick me up, but I have a feeling that 2 scoops are gonna be necessary for me to really feel D-Stunner. I don't use a whole lot of caffeine or other stims throughout the day. I normally have about 200mg of caffeine in the morning (8-9AM) via whatever energy drink I'm drinking, but then I don't have caffeine again until 4:30-5 when I'm about to train. On off days I will have 1 energy drink, but I don't use a pre-workout supp obviously.
I'll keep this log updated with updates every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday as those are my training days.
