I recently tried Pulse from Legion Supplements and I’ll definitely be adding this to my list of favorite preworkouts. Not only does the fruit punch flavor taste great, it mixes EXTREMELY well and doesn’t make the skin “over-tingle” with the beta-alanine. Pulse is a much-needed addition to the preworkout arena.
I took a half dose the first day of the trial, then the recommended dose the second (while my wife also tried some), and a 1.5 dose the third day. All three doses provided steady energy and a push that reduced fatigue all of the way through my workout. Even with the 1.5 dose, I didn’t feel over-stimulated or too tingly (beta-alanine can make the skin tingle from time to time). I even found myself (in my HIIT phase) sprinting on the treadmill for the first time in two years without even skipping a beat when I got back to the weights.
Fruit Punch wasn’t sour, just a little tangy and not too sweet, which I like. I can’t stand some products that make you feel like you’ve just downed toxic waste or others that make your tongue feel like you’ve eaten a pound of sugar. Overall, the flavor was very pleasing. It’s naturally sweetened with Stevia, has no artificial dyes or extra fillers. All in all, it’s a solid product.
So what makes it so good? Just look at the label. It’s packed with beta-alanine (increases carnosine level to reduce muscle fatigue), L-citrulline (reduces fatigue and boost blood flow), theanine (NO Boost), L-ornithine (reduces fatigue and increases fat burning), and some caffeine to boot.
I’d recommend Pulse to anyone whether you’re new to the gym and looking for a boost to take you to the next level or you’re an “seasoned pro” that is sick of your old formula preworkout. The best part is that Pulse is certified gluten free according to the manufacturer and their other products are going through the testing phase soon to get the same certification. You can check out Pulse and all of the other Legion Supplements here. I’m hoping to get my hands on their protein soon. With a preworkout as great as Pulse, their protein has to be outstanding.
