Pro Supps pre workout formula called “Hyde” is getting a lot of attention by people who love pre workouts. The infamous Jack3d has been the clear seller the past year or so, but now “Hyde” is becoming more and more popular, especially since jack3d changed their formula to jack3d micro (People do not think it works as well as the original formula which was in process of being discontinued but now again is available for sale). The story though with pre workouts seem to remain the same. A new one comes into the market, does well, makes a name for itself, then the formula changes and sales seem to steadily decline. Examples: Like i said before Jack3d, N.O. Xplode (Now NO Xplode 2.0), superpump 250 (Now superpump Max), etc.. For the time being though let’s take a look at maybe why this product seems to be so popular, why it is the number one seller right now, and why people say it works for them.
First off, 40 servings is a good amount to have per one scoop. This should last the normal time most pre workouts do which is about a month or so. Starting off with the “Strength Matrix”, no complaints there, 5,000mg of beta alanine, creatine hcl, L-Leucine, L-Citrulline Malate, and Agmatine sulfate is a generous amount given per one scoop. Beta alanine is found in most pre workouts in the market, it is known to increase strength and endurance, as well as increase muscle mass. Creatine hcl is supposed to be more soluble, safer, and more concentrated than regular monohydrate. I call it, the new era of creatine, along with kre alkalyn. L-Leucine is a vital BCAA, L-Citrulline Malate is to help improve blood flow, which helps the whole nitric oxide stage of the pre workout, along with l-arginine which there is none in this formula because it has agmatine sulfate which is also to help get a “pump”.
The caffeine matrix in my opinion is the reason why there is so much hype with this product. Over 400mg of caffeine per one scoop. That is an insane amount of caffeine, equivalent to about 4 cups of coffee. That is not very healthy for you to have every day. But, having this much caffeine does have an impact on how you feel the pre workout’s effects. If you are okay with taking in this much caffeine then this is the product for you.
The last “Intensity matrix” is not all that exciting and only contains 83mg of a bunch of stuff that you probably can’t pronounce or even care what it is. 1,3-dimethylamylamine HCl (DMAA) is the ingredient that got Oxy Elite Pro in a little bit of trouble and made them change their newer formula to be basically the same just without that ingredient, therefore I would try and stay away from this ingredient. Pikatropin helps with focus. Yohimbe bark extract is often used as a natural treatment for erectile dysfunction or impotence. So to my understanding this seems to be some form of a testosterone booster. Lastly, rauwolfia vomitoria root extract does not have much research on it which concerns me, but it is derived from a plant extract.
