Full Spectrum Rx Reviews
IntroductionI would like to thank LabTech Nutraceuticals for giving me the opportunity to review Full Spectrum RX. I knew I wanted to try this when I saw this was a top rated pre-workout. I train as an athlete, with my goal to increase explosiveness. Sometimes that combines powerlifting, olympic lifts, and plyometrics. I usually train 4-5 times a week.

I feel like this pre-workout is definitely dosed correctly. As the LabTech website says, "pre-workout powerhouse". It seems like they threw in everything but the kitchen sink. This pre-workour certainly has it all.
Taste/Mixability/DosingThis product mixed really well. There was no additional clumping leftover. I tried the black cherry lemonade flavor, and it was good, not great. It was certainly not bad, by any means, it just wasn't one of my favorites. It was very tangy, unless I used about 12+ ounces of water.
Dosing: Definitely a 1 scoop pre-workout with 12 oz of water for me. The scooper was quite large.
EffectivenessThis product worked, and it worked well. Full Spectrum definitely provided a good clean energy. It didn't hit all at once, like some pre-workouts do. I would usually sip on this product about 15-20 minutes before starting my warmup. I would sip this as I headed over to the gym. As soon as I finished it I could feel my temperature rising, along with Beta-Alanine tingles. The pumps that this product provided were solid (not the best, but I definitely noticed them). I felt that I could go forever in the gym if I wanted to. I did notice a slight crase afterwords, however.
ValueThis product was EXPENSIVE. The lowest price I could find was 54.99 on LabTech's website, or 99.99 for 2 tubs. This equates to $1.80-1.83 per serving. This is just a little too much IMO.
Side EffectsSlight crash
ConclusionThis is a good product. Do I believe this is a top 5 pre-workout, per the rankings? No, unfortunately. However, it is still a good product. The main reason for the low scire is the price.

I'm with bctuthill on the value, it seems on consistent and not just to Pre-Kaged but also Kraken, you have that product at an 8.6 when its $1.50 a serving, not much more. Also, Labtech's website has it listed at $50 as of this morning and everytime I go to their page, I see a popup for a coupon (current one was 13% off all products). Since that brings the price to at most $1.67 and with the coupon $1.45, would that change your scoring?
