TNT Intense Pump - Product Review

 

Finally getting to the third round of my July pre-workout review, we have TNT Intense Pump. Contrary to the other pre-workouts I have reviewed, this one is a stimulant free mixture. Let us get into it.

About the product:

Right off the bat, I will say that Intense Pump was the strongest of all the three pre-workouts I trained with in terms of the pump it produced. As a stim-free pre-workout, Intense Pump has a very heavily loaded pump matrix which makes it great for users who are looking for great workout pumps.

Its constituents and their doses are definitely worthy of making it a top rate local pre-workout formulation. It has 6g of citrulline (which is exceedingly rare), 4g of creatine and 3g of beta-alanine. These three ingredients together in combination make this pre-workout excellent for training performance and endurance.

As a pump-producer this pre-workout has 2.5g of taurine, allowing users to get an insane pump from their sessions.  The amino acid complex of this pre-workout does give it a high calorie count compared to other pre-workout formulas so if you are calorie conscious, you may want to take this into account.

Usability:

Intense Pump has an extremely strong flavour. The serving suggestion recommends that you have it with 400ml of water. However, I would recommend having a lot more water with it as it tastes like you are having a concentrated juice mix if you use the 400ml of water. I am in no way bashing the taste of this as it tastes just fine. You just need to use more water to “dilute” it a little more.

It mixes well and is quite smooth going down the throat. But more importantly, this pre-workout definitely gave me a great workout and I felt energised throughout the entirety of my session. I had a great pump and I was able to push a little harder and for longer as well. Furthermore, I was able to use this pre-workout during a late afternoon training session and still have a great night’s sleep that evening.

Dosages:

Intense Pump has a serving suggestion of 27g, which is quite a lot compared to other pre-workout mixes. Just a reminder that you need to use more water than recommended if you are not one for extremely strong tastes.

Rating:

As a stim-free pre-workout, this product gets a 4/5. It took a remarkably close second place next to Strain for me but simply because I prefer stimulant-laden pre-workouts. That being said, this is still an excellent product with amazing ingredients which are fully dosed.
