 This was my first ever pre-workout supplement, especially in regards to a NO2 regulator.
In college I had heard all this hype of Black Powder, and how it was supposed to be better than NO-Xplode. The first time I tried it was 2 years ago in college from a buddy, and I did have a pretty damn good workout that day.

Flash to the present, and I am now a decent gym-going fool. This stuff gives me great pump, which in turns makes me feel awesome in the gym, seeing my muscles all puffed up gives you more confidence when hittin' the weights.
It did make me want to poop like 30 min after taking it, which is the magnesium in it, but sometimes I like that, so that my stomach doesn't have that 'heavy' feeling when I'm lifting.
My tolerance went up pretty quick though. After 2 weeks, I moved up two 2 scoops. I finished the bottle, the last week using 2.5 scoops.
It sort of lost the intensity it first had with me after sometime, and I just attribute that to tolerance. Now I'm mixing a scoop of jack3d with it to get that crazy energy rush, and it's all good.
The value isn't the best, but for me, money isn't TOO big of an issue, so as long as it isn't raping me in prices, I'm fine with it.
I've had orange, and blue raz, and I prefered the orange...

 Black powder is a very reliable Pre-Workout supplement. Energy throughout, yet the best attribute is the mental focus that I have experienced. I can really dial in to each movement, focusing on the positive and the negative of my motion. Pump is decent but nothing dramatic. I take half a scoop before a game just to get me going, and a full scoop before lifting. The thing that I like most is that it does open the flood gates and allows all that you put into your body to be absorbed. Therefore you get the best from your other supplements as well. Price is decent, about 60 cents per scoop.

  • Great Metal Drive

     I finished my tub of Black Powder tonight... I've found myself grabbing it before my workouts more than any other pre-workout. I have quite the collection ranging from Jack3d, NO-Xplode, and 1MR. The energy I get is definitely a different type than the other brands out there. I don't notice a rush of energy or that crazy psyched up feeling I get when I take Jack3d... And I know some of you guys are probably wondering why the heck I wouldn't want that but I find my workouts more effective with Black Powder. I'm calm and collected, and I have the focus and the Drive to work my ass off and concentrate on what I'm doing. The energy I get however is definitely significant, but its a different kind. It's hard to explain haha. The pump factor? Oh yeah, it was always there for me. The veins in my forearms bulged and my chest swelled up nice and tight. No crashes for me ever, and I never did build up a tolerance. I had the orange flavor which tastes absolutely fantastic.. I actually looked forward to downing it! And plus its carbonated so when I would mix it in my shaker bottle and pop the top it would always make a huge BOOM sound because of the pressure, signifying its time to head to the dungeon. I bought the orange flavor on sale for $18.99, so you can't complain there. More reps, heavier weight, and longer workouts. Yeah, I'm a fan.

      Nice review, been looking for a new PWO since jack3d got pulled from the market. I was wondering, have you tried 'Assault' by Muscle Pharm? At first I thought I was definitley going to try Assault but after reading your review I might be leaning towards Black Powder

       I've taken alot of pre workouts including Jack3d, N.O. Xplode, naNO Vapor, Endorush, Juggernaut, and Dark Rage, and to me this product had very little effect. A friend of mine worked at GNC and got me 5 free servings and i had them all on a well rounded selection of different workouts. I felt little to nothing of a pump when it finally kicked in an hour later. I also felt pretty low and exhausted half way through my workout. I dunno what it is with MRI but alot of their products seem to have decent ingredients but just dont deliver. I dont think i will be taking this again since i am now a Jack3d addict but maybe for people really sensitive to stims, this could work better. But I do think MRI is very overpriced for what you get. Jack3d is where my pre workout heart beats towards.
      Pros:
      Cons:
      • Decent Taste
      • Not Much Of A Pump
      • Not Much Energy
      • Crash Effects Experienced Halfway Through Workout
      • No Mental Focus
      • Cost Too Much
      • Inconsistent

      I've heard good things about this product and been tempted to try it. I'm waiting on a good sale before I make a purchase. I'm sure your just a non-responder to this. Maybe you didn't notice the effects it did give you because of using Jack3d.

       Finished a tub of this stuff about a month ago and I grew quite fond of it. I get great pumps when on this stuff, the energy levels where good, and it goes down well...better then NO-Xplode. Everybody yells about the focus it gives you but I din't notice. I tend to self-motivate and focus well on my own so I usually don't look for that stuff in powders. Taste was alright, nothing to get excited about. I take supps like this with alot of water (16-20 oz. w/2 scoops)so the flavour gets watered down anyways. The powder mixes well and you don't get the clumpy bottom of the cup you get with other powders. I like how I can take this almost immediately prior to workouts. I hate having to wait 30-45min after taking a supp to let it get into yer body. That being said I think this supp absorbs well into yer body and kicks in rather fast (5-10min). The only real downside is the price. This stuff does work good and it is one of the better pre-workout supps for areason, but it is hardly worth $65-$70, not by a long shot.

      Start strong - Finish Strong its as simple as that...

      Hi guys -

      I know this one has been covered extensively - however I know there are a few guys now who like to take a look at what I have tried and what I think - and sometimes it is good to have your own review to stack up against other products that have not been as extensively covered...

      With that said I will get straight on the ingredients so that I can chip in with my opinion on what this stuff contains and what I think to it.

      ACTINOS 2 IR™ Whey Peptide Fraction
      Other Ingredients
      Maltodextrin, Citric Acid, Natural And Artificial Flavors, Sucralose, Silicon Dioxide, FD&C Blue #1

      The first thing that sticks out to me is the 11g of carbs per serving.
      For me that is a little high when I am cutting (which is often when I need a pre workout to lend a hand energy wise)
      That's just the labelled technical carbs too - maltodextrin is in this powder and maltodextrin often remains un-checked as carbohydrate - despite it acting as a more aggressive insulin spiker than straight glucose....

      There are benefits to having some carbs packed in there - for nutrient shuttling, nutrient delivery (including Glucose, BCAAS, Glutamine and all of your NOS components) - carbs particularly fast releasing carbs are efficient as a NOS booster/amplifier - so I am not denying that the carbs in there will have a positive effect on the performance of the pre workout for fuelling a higher powered workout (which is exactly what some people want and need).

      Its just for me - I like to have the OPTION of having a carbbed up pre workout - or taking it lean. 11g carbs might not sound like much - but if your total carb intake is 100g for the day for example - thats 10% and if it is insulin spiking carbs - it may make a fat loss workout or cardio session much less effective. Just something to note.

      Your blend for strength and power contains Creatine Ethyl Ester - I am happy with that since studies show that it is the most effective and efficient form of creatine for delivering power/stamina without the need for load up or unwanted bloat - however I appreciate that many studies in house in the industry are unreliable and there are the arguments there to suggest that creatine is creatine pure and simple..... so take that as you like - but I see it as no coincidence that my favourite pre workouts often contain ethyl ester .....

      The blend for stamina and endurance - there are tried and tested components in that bracket. The beta alanine is often a must component for the more effective PWO formulations and many people tell the benefit from Beta Alanine for increasing endurance and energy output by the muscle tissue. The bicarbonates are actually banned in some sports because under some rulings they are classed as performance enhancers because they buffer out lactic acid and defy fatigue like Captain America .... of course this is potentially a contributing factor as to why endurance on this stuff is higher than less comprehensive formulas....

      Your vitamin B complex: a good bunch of components there to help you release energy and get blood flowing! I am suprised however that Niacin (B3) is not among that stack - as most pre workouts and energy drinks and even Supermarket CEREALS contain Niacin for energy release and blood vessel dilation ........ but I guess it is effective enough without it judging by my scores....

      Pump stack:

      AAKG and L-Arganine HCL - tried and tested - if a pre workout that is aimed at stamina, pump and endurance does not include these I am often disappointed and either avoid it or add it myself from raw source......... lets just leave it at that.

      Your stim stack relying mainly on caffeine and green tea looks a little weak and generic - Caffeine is basically just in anything nowadays and most of us will be to some extent resisant - but for some people who are sensitive it might be enough to get a good buzz going. On one hand however, it might be the weakness of the stim stack that actually helps this product maintain efficiency throughout a workout - products with heavy fast punching stims can often have us reaching an energy peak very quickly and end up zapping it out so quickly that we end up like flat batteries ..... so I am not necessarily knocking this product too hard for this - it has its pros and cons - and depending on your goal or what you want out of a PWO - More potent or Milder stims are likely to be favoured or required by different people

      The blend for muscle energy and metabolism looks like a hefty electrolyte blend - which of course helps fuel and hydrate us and helps our energy conversion and muscle contraction - it is all beneficial in a NOS supplement for fuelling a gruelling workout session.

      One thing I will say about all this stuff is ^ expect a bloat - I would really not advise these types of ingredients for people overly concerned with keeping dry and hard - it might make you look fuller and pumped up - but it might also make somebody who is sensetive to sodium etc etc bloat out at least to a moderate degree - this is not a pre contest supp...

      Now for me personally - I used this when I needed to keep myself feeling like I had something 'NEW' to keep my workouts intense - since I wasnt on any test boosters or hormonal boosters etc I needed to keep my strength gains up and my focus and state of mind in the zone....

      Performance wise - this stuff did exactly that and did not let me down.

      What I noticed about this stuff was that you started off strong with stamina and energy and you finished strong - there was no premature peak and then an anti climax. Some PWOs have a tendency to either peak too quickly and then the workout declines in intensity or power/focus - or the opposite happens and the PWO doesnt kick in fast enough to get the full benefit - and then you're tweaked at home for a while wanting it to wear off.

      Black powder for me like I said kicked in well meaning you start in the zone - and remained at a nice consistent level - without wearing down - the pump was decent and stuck with me. What that gives is a nice level of proportionate training - each set gets the energy, power and focus it deserves - and thus each muscle or muscle group you hit - gets attention and gets worked equally as hard......

      Taste and texture wise: it was a while ago now I think mine was Fruit Punch - it was pink - and mixed easily and turned into a juicy drink - slightly like bubblegum.... I recently tried HYDE by Pro Supps and was thinking for ages that it reminded me of something to taste that I had had before - now I remember what it tasted like!

      The Black Powder scoops are large so you get a large drink out of it (which is what I like - I dont like a pint of water to make a massively watered down version of cranberry cordial) - I like to be able to have a nice protein shaker full of juicy PWO....

      Cost wise - it was quite dear at the time when it was an IN product - but then again for the efficiency of the product and the effort that has clearly gone into the formulation - and what we are offered for our money ingredient wise - now I realise that it was still decent value at that time....

      Now I can find it at a more reasonable rate - and I think it is now even better value since it is an older generation supplement.

      Looking at the ingredients and judging by the effects it had for me - I would say by no means is it an obsolete product - I think some of the new generation pre workouts are becoming a lot more advanced (though many aren't getting much more advanced at all - just the labelling!) - however like Metrx Amped - I think Black Powder still holds it own against these newer advanced formulas - it was ahead of its time in a way when I used it and since the powder is so COMPREHENSIVE with its ingredients - I have to say that I Profess that it still beats a lot of what you will find on the shelves performance wise and will still contend with some of the new favourites......

       using this on weight training days, I haven't tried it with my cardio days though. Weight training days 45/15/0 Cardio days 45/0/10, as you can see coach is having me lean out right now so I'm feeling very tired but this stuff gets me going so I could actually be very sensitive to any stimulant but I have to say this stuff gets my mind straight, I have no distractions, and all there is to do is be driven/focused. This makes me so mentally driven that for some reason I felt like applying for so many scholarships..I even ***ing think I'm going to get in Rice Univ. haha. But that's aside from Training. This stuff helps me focus on the contraction and negatives on my reps in every exercise I do (which im very keen about even when i was not taking this), which leads to a great pump(for me). This also gives me good self esteem (I have low self esteem). I actually took this a couple of hours ago before my weight training and I still feel good, my muscles actually feel relaxed and pumped at the same time? it's kinda cool. Also this gives me a good euphoric effect, a very good one at that. You have to try it to know what i'm talking about, but I'd give it about 2 weeks and you'll NOTICE the quality of this stuff. Im also using ON aminos (liquid) post. Black Powder is a bit pricey for me maybe too much for others, but you gotta do what you gotta do

       I buy the black powder on a regular but in large quanitys so i dont have to stop and pick it up so many times. So yesterday i head in to pick up a few containers of the back powder that is advertised here on this page. But they no longer carry this paticular product. But now a smaller version with missing ingredients. So i decided to give it a chance anyways. A waste of money i consumed two servings within an hour of time! What a waste! Have you ever felt afer having to many cups of coffee you felt like you just now have headache well thats how i felt. An hour later. I literally felt like i just role out of bed. It just wore write off. So if you can get ahold of the origanl product i recommend to keep using it. But when you run across the new smaller version. I say run away dont waste your time or money on the newer smaller product!

       MRI Black powder, where do I begin. I have used my share of N.O. induced PWO’s and PWO’s that just flat out did nothing to or for me but this was bad. My first month here in theatre I did not bring any supplements with me as for I didn’t have enough room in the little amount of luggage we are aloud through the USMC for deployment flights. I had to go to the PX on the other side of base to pick up a couple of things. I had not been in the gym for a couple months leading up to getting out here but that was all getting fat and happy with the family saying my goodbyes and see ya laters. PX has basic supplements like protein, whey protein, Omega 3-6-9, True Mass, and MRI Black powder, the only PWO they had. I contemplated buying it because I had bad experiences in the past a couple of years ago when I picked up a bottle of this stuff but never finished it because it gave me pretty bad headaches and made me crash hard, but so did N.O.xplode when I tried it a few years ago. I figured since I had been bumming some N.O.xplode off a buddy and it was working out really good for the couple days I had used it with no side effects and thought maybe it would be the same for MRI Black Powder. Unfortunately I was dead wrong. Black Powder killed me, I battled through the bottle but I was happier on the empty side of the bottle.

      During the time using black powder I was on a normal diet I would eat for a “dusting the cobwebs off” routine. Added-
      -Syntha6
      -Omega 3-6-9
      -GNC Multi-V’s that looked like had been sitting here since NAM!

      Taste/Mixability: 7/10 I rated the taste of Black powder a 7 because it wasn’t too bad, I had the fruit punch which was pretty tasty but still had very decent hint of what tasted like “chemicals” in there. I forgot how carbonated it gets when you shake it up. When I first got it I shook it up in a normal plastic bottle, (I would use a shaker but we don’t have running water here so it makes it hard to wash out a shaker, and you all know what it smells like if you don’t clean them for a while, just imagine a couple months! Yuck!) I thought it was going to explode so I loosened the cap to try and get air out but all I got was sticky sticky Black powder foam all over myself and it just kept oozing and oozing, it seemed like it never stopped. Finally figure out if I just shook it up real good and let it sit for about 5 minutes the carbonation and foam would recede to a decent point and wouldn’t explode. Drank it from there, doesn’t go down very easy, at least not for me.

      Effectiveness: 4/10 Black powder didn’t start to set in after 3 scoops for at least an hour. Up until that time and through it I had the worse gas or indigestion for the whole time I was taking it. Once the “feeling” would hit I just felt nauseous. While working out I would get a random burst of energy at one set and then get back on for the next set and feel like I was on “Empty”. Sometimes it worked but sometimes it did not in the same night. Everyday lifting with this stuff in my system was a hassle. It made me constantly burp up acids into my mouth which tasted horrible! Some days it gave me a headache, mad me sick to my stomach, burping, and sometimes all of them. Some days at the end of a workout I would walk outside and once my body started to settle down I would vomit up all the water I had drank in the gym to stay hydrated and the Black Powder. Constantly feeling like this every day after taking black powder threw my focus out the window. I almost hurt myself pretty bad doing military presses and dropped the weights on myself because I was so out of it from feeling so sick from the Black powder and my wrist gave out.

      Value: 2/10 here maybe 5/10 in the states. The reason why I say this is because I got that F word in the A word! I payed 39$ for it here at the PX which is outrageous compared to what you can get it for on Amazon or back home at around 15-20$ and I give it a 5 in the states because if it works out for you it has a pretty good price to servings ratio. Once again, I had no choice it was either wait a month and work out dry or get some basics. So I did what I could with what I could acquire.

      Overall: 3/10 I definitely felt the effects of this stuff but it was off and on. I always felt like poo poo! I bought it for way to much but you can get it for a good price on Amazon and other online retailers. I rushed into getting this because I had nothing else so that is why I payed the price I did.

      Recommend? No I would not. I have been through many, many PWO’s including Jack3D old and new, N.O.xplode, Nanovapor, GAT, 1MR, Animal Rage, Assault, White flood etc. etc. and this has been by far the worse experience I have had with one. Even though I choked down an entire bottle of this stuff I felt like garbage working out every night. They were the worst workouts I have ever had even beating having gone to the gym after 24 hour days with no sleep was better than taking this stuff. But I am glad I did take it because I do like to experiment around and now I can pass it on, maybe it will send you away maybe it won’t that’s your call. But my call is Never Again!

      • Inconsistent
      • Cost Too Much

      • Feel A Little Dizzy After Workout

       Black powder is my go-to PW. I have tried tons of PW out there...Xplode, Nano Vapor, Jack3d, NeuroCore, Shotgun, Assault. And all around, Black powder is my favorite.

      Taste
      The taste is awesome, you just have to mix it with just enough cold water. I have tried the blue raz and fruit punch, and i'm waiting for the orange to come in the mail. But the taste is way good, it's better than all the other PW I've taken besides Xplode. I'd say 9/10 for taste.

      Effectiveness
      I work out super early in the morning (4:30-6:00) and Black Powder doesn't get me all jittery and itching like some of the other PW. It just gets me super focused. I get really vainy with BP too, and the pump is great but not the best I've seen. I'd say about 8/10 for vains and 6/10 for pump. I also feel super focused for a long period of time. 2 hours into a work out and I still want to lift hard. I have so much stamina and resistance, I always feel like I can go forever.

      Price 10/10
      The price is pretty great. Last night I bought some more from allstarhealth and only $20 for I think 40 servings, that's not bad at all for the quality.

      Overall 8/10
      Like I said before, I've tried tons of pre-workouts and Black Powder is my favorite. I lift and eat for cut and BP has been the perfect PW for me with my diet and workout routines.
