If you’re not familiar with Norse Mythology and you haven’t seen Thor: Ragnarok, let me clue you in on who Fenris is. Fenris, or Fenrir as he is sometimes called, is a child of Loki (a gift from Odin in the Ragnarok movie), and is a giant wolf who is virtually unstoppable and very, very powerful. How powerful? He is rumored to be able to one day swallow both the earth and sky (and Odin) in one mouthful.
So you may be wondering what does a powerful wolf have to do with a preworkout? Well, Valhalla Labs has brought forth the best and most power driven preworkout I’ve ever tried – Fenris Fury. It is pure intensity in a shaker.
Valhalla Labs products are designed by Dr Todd Lee, a medical doctor, biochemist, and IFBB champion, and they are precisely formulated for power and performance.
Yes, not only did he manage to get a degree in biochemistry AND become a Doctor of Medicine, he used whatever free time he had to win multiple IFBB and NPC championships. This means the supplements from Valahalla Labs are formulated by someone who not only knows how they work AND how to design the optimal formula, but also someone who exemplifies their effectiveness.
I’ve tried many, many, preworkouts over the years, and many have the exact same claim:
“Most Powerful” – many stack stimulant after stimulant to try to cause an energy boost that ends up with a jittery feeling and resulting crash. “Huge Pump” – many use trivial amounts of arginine or citrulline without precisely formulating them for an effective pump.
Like the mythological counterpart, Fenris Fury is made differently than the others and it really shows with every workout.
The sleeve tearing pump and increased NO production and blood flow is achieved through creatine monohydrate, arginine alpha ketoglutarate, citrulline malate, agmatine sulfate, and beet root extract. The result is a headache free workout with amazing cellular volumization.
The energy boost and fat burning comes from caffeine, taurine, Marus Alba (also known as white mulberry), Kudzu, Yohimbine HCL, and L-Carnitine. Caffeine and taurine provide the energy boost, while L-Carnitine Kudzu, Marus Alba do the fat burning and IGF-1 release. The bonus addition of yohimbine HCL does a gender-targeted fat burn (hips for women and abs for men).
The final two ingredients, betaine and beta alanine, reverse lactic acid buildup and signal muscle growth which result in less muscle fatigue and better muscle growth. More workout and less muscle fatigue? Yes please.
So the blend is fantastic, but how does it taste?
It tastes absolutely amazing. Some preworkouts just dump in a ton of flavoring and the result is an abomination of flavor overload. Fenris Fury has a fruit punch flavor that is drinkable and smooth, almost like a pink Starburst. It makes a preworkout enjoyable.
It mixes extremely well too. Many preworkouts leave what I call “snowballs” in the shaker…it’s essentially undissolved preworkout powder and it’s a waste of money and a waste of a workout. Fenris Fury mixes in seconds, even with a small amount of shaking or stirring. No snowballs on the side of the cup here.
But does it work? You’re damn right it does. I have been using it for almost a week now and every single workout has been a combination of maximum focus, increased power, and amazing tenacity. I have never had a better workout, and just when I think I am done for the day, my body begs for one more exercise and I feel like I could go all day. I get a fantastic workout time and time again without the super jittery and “cracked out” feeling that some preworkouts give. If you go into your workouts carb-free, which I also recommend, the fat burning capabilities increase tremendously.
All in all, Fenris Fury has set the bar high for any preworkout. I know I won’t be buying anything else.
