Assault by Muscle Pharm is a pre-workout powder that is formulated to increase energy, focus, strength, and endurance. It contains caffeine, Taurine, L-Carnitine, and Creatine along with some other ingredients. We’ve looked at pre-workouts before, but we haven’t looked at Assault yet.
As you can see there are no calories in this pre-workout formula. It contains Vitamins C, E, B6, and B12. Then there is the Strength & Performance Complex that contains Creatine, Beta-Alanine, and Betaine which makes for a really great workout.
After that, there is the Muscle Fuel Complex which contains both Taurine and L-Glycine which can lower fatigue and increase blood flow. Finally, there is the Energy & Focus Complex which contains Caffeine and Acetyl-L-Carnitine which can increase your metabolism and burn fat.
|Key Ingredients & Dosage||Our Take|
|Vitamins||There are four vitamins contained here, Vitamin C (300mg), Vitamin E (133% of RI), Vitamin B6 (20mg), and Vitamin B12 (833% of RI).||As vitamin complexes go this isn’t particularly impressive. There are only 4 vitamins here, but you don’t buy a pre-workout for the vitamin content do you.|
|Strength & Performance||Creatine Monohydrate (3g) which can increase muscular endurance and power, Beta-Alanine (1.75g) that can also improve gym performance, and Betaine Anhydrous (1.5g) which works in a similar way to creatine but may not be as reliable.||This is a really excellent complex of ingredients. Creatine is always a winner, combining it with two other performance enhancers such as Beta-Alanine and Betaine is a recipe for success. We would say that both the creatine and the beta alanine are at about 55% of what is considered the clinical dose, so you might want to cosnider double scooping.|
|Muscle Fuel||L-Glycine (1g) is an amino acid that can improve cognition and reduce fatigue, while Taurine (1g) has an antioxidant effect on the body and can increase blood flow.||The name muscle fuel is quite confusing here, Taurine’s affect on blood flow would help to deliver nutrients to the muscles, while L-Glycine can lower fatigue. But neither is really a fuel for muscles. Nevertheless this is an impressive complex that compliments the Strength & Performance Complex perfectly.|
|Energy & Focus||This section contains two of the most important ingredients in the whole supplement. Caffeine (250mg) and L-Carnitine (250mg). Caffeine is present in a decent dosage, 250mg should be enough for most people to begin to reap the benefits of more energy, less fatigue, and lowered perception of pain. L-Carnitine will increase your metabolism and may burn fat.||It’s nice to see a decent amount of caffeine in this pre workout, and the L-Carnitine is also well dosed. The two ingredients will definitely help you to increase your energy, and will really help push you further in your workout.|
Bottom Line: An excellent array of ingredients that will increase your gym based performance, give you more focus, banish fatigue, and help oxidize fat.
Taste – Whether you like the taste or not is highly dependent on the flavor that you choose, most of the flavors are not popular with reviewers but the Strawberry Ice flavor is very nice indeed.
Effectiveness – High doses of caffeine and L-Carnitine alongside decent doses of creatine, betaine, and Beta-Alanine make this a really effective pre-workout supplement. Definitely worth trying if your workouts require a bit more energy and focus and you find it in a price that allows you to double up on the servings.
