This Jack3d Advanced Formula Review was written by a friend of mine, Ben Harker. The thoughts and opinions on Jack3D Advanced are purely his and do not represent the entire thoughts of the Cheap Protein Discount Codes Team. That being said – take it away Ben!
I am a big lover of pre-workouts. Anything that can give me that extra edge in the gym, as well as helping keep that pump for longer after an intense workout is something that I want in my arsenal of supplements. I have a full time job, 9-5. The gym I train in isn’t open on a morning so the times I get to workout is after work, So not until 7 on a evening. So if its been a long arsed day, I can be drained and not have enough energy to have a decent workout.
Now I do not believe that pre-workouts are needed. You can have a killer workout without using them but if you are in need of that bit of a kick, then maybe Jack3d is for you. The original Jack3d was so strong, it was in fact banned in the UK. Never one to miss a trick though, USP Labs launched the bigger, faster, stronger (gotta love marketing) version, Jack3d Advanced Formula! Remember that this Jack3d Advanced Formula Review Is just my take on this pre-workout supplement. That being said, let’s take a look at what you get inside this bad boy.
Jack3D Advanced Formula Ingredients
As you can see its got all the good stuff that you’d expect from a pre-workout. 1 Scope has 100mg of caffeine. Which is good because caffeine has been known to increase strength doing resistance exercise.
The Arginine Nitrate and Yohimbe Extract help with the blood flow in the body.
It also has creatine which is well known to be one of the best supplements out there. Arguable the best and only supplement that any lifter should take. Its cheap, proven to work and has little to no side effects. Creatine helps with strength and performance. It really is a great supplement. So its a must in a pre-workout!
Something that appealed to me about this product is that it contained Beta Alanine. From what I read on multiple different websites is that Beta Alanine boots explosive muscular strength and power output and it can help you train harder for longer. This is because Beta Alanine contributes to the carnosine synthesis which is great because carnosine combats muscle fatigue (it should also be noted that this works particular well when supplementing with a taurine supplement). This ingredient sounds right up my street. They can also be a slight side effect in some people (if you want to call it that) that it gives them a tingle sensation. Some people love it, others loath it. So out of blatant curiosity, I wanted to know what this tingle felt like.
Jack3d Advanced Formula Effectiveness
I have used Jack3D on and off for a few months now, but in fairness of this review, I thought i’d give you the conditions of the day when I took the supplement. I believe the time and the activity of your day can effect the result of a pre-workout. So if I have been doing a long arse day of manual labour, my body might be too fatigued for the pre workout to give me the amazing energy that it says it’ll give you. (But it’ll still hopefully give you the energy to have a good workout). Also your tolerance to caffeine can effect the performance of the pre-workout. I have a slightly above average tolerance to stimulants so when I’m take pre-workout I use around 1-1 and a half scopes (depending on how tired I maybe feeling).
So on this day, I woke up at 7:00am. Woke up from a good nights sleep. Had a 50 minute commute to work. I work at a desk all day and today was a slow day in terms of deadlines, so its been rather lazy. 50 Minute commute back. Home at 6:30pm ready for the gym. This is when I taken my pre-workout. This is around 20 minutes before stepping into the gym.
Right, lets get to this!
My Summary Of Jack3D Advanced Formula
Focus Level – 6/10
I experienced an okay focus level with this supplement. I wouldn’t say that it was the best focus level that I have experienced but after a long day it can definitely help to keep you on track and make sure that you complete your workout without thinking “I’ve done enough.”
Effectiveness/Pump – 9/10
I would say that I definitely had more confidence in my strength, I didn’t shy away from the heaviest weights I could lift. Generally if it has been a long day, the thought of pushing your self to the limit can be awful, this pre-workout defiantly stopped any thoughts of giving up or going for a lesser, easier weight. Also I had a great, consistent pump throughout the workout and and hour or two afterwards. Definitely a great feeling when looking in the mirror and feeling the pump.
Taste – 0/10
Where do i begin with the taste of this? This has to be the worst tasting crap I have tried in a long time! The thought of taking some of this really makes me want to gag. It leaves awful grittiness in your mouth as well as a disgusting after taste. I have tried taking it both ways, mixing it with water and just straight pouring it into my mouth and giving it a quick swirl down with some water. Both times I could have thrown up.
I have read many reviews that have said this tastes really nice and that its really flavoursome. Now I dont have a clue what they’ve been drinking but its definitely not what i’ve had!
So if you are thinking about buying this for its taste, then you are going to have a nightmare!
Of course taste is very subjective. I just didn’t like it. One man’s trash, is another man’s treasure. One man’s urine, is another mans champagne.
So in conclusion to this review. Would i recommend jack3d advanced? I would have to say “Hell No.” The taste of this product in my eyes just kills any benefit for taking it. I shouldn’t have to feel a knot in my stomach knowing that I’m going to have to take it. I shouldn’t want to throw up afterwards because of it awful bitty taste! There are much better pre workouts out there that do not claim to have a great taste. Dorian Yates Nox Pump is one of them. It says in clear writing on the tub. This is not one of those great tasting pre workouts full of sugar. You chug it down and feel the effects.
But surprisingly it is delicious! But I will write a more in-depth review on it soon.
But hey, this is all just my opinion, I’m not going to tell you what to and not to buy. Let me know if you have tried Jack3d Advance and if you agree.
An Alternative Pre Workout
Make Your Own
Of course if you’re eager to try a pre workout supplement to help kick start your ass into gear, so you can get clangin’ and bangin’, you can always try and make your own.
Many pre-workout supplements will contain common ingredients, which are considered staples for a pre-workout. In the video above, I use a range of my protein supplements, along with caffeine to create a very low cost pre workout supplement. Buying these supplement’s from cheap protein bulk suppliers as individual ingredients, especially taking advantage of our myprotein discount codes, will always allow you to create a very similar supplement for a fraction of the price.
Thanks for checking out my review of Jack3D advanced Formula. I hope you found it informative. I always like to research supplements online before I make a purchase. Remember that this Jack3d Advanced Formula review is just my take. You may go onto a forum or another site, and find someone who thinks its the best pre-workout supplement ever. Just remember to take each of these supplement reviews with a pinch of salt, and then make your own, informed decision. Im not your parent, and I won’t tell you what supplements are worth spending your money on, or what supplements are a rip off. But I will give you my opinion!
Hope this does help some of you guys out, and if you’ve ever tried Jack3d, either the original or the advanced formula, be sure to let us know what you thought of it, down in the comments below!
