Insane Stim for Beginners. Great GNC product.
I am a 32 year old lifter. Self proclaimed non-competitive bodybuilder. I enjoy lifting for strength, power and aesthetics as a hobby and therapy release. consequently that marries me to the supplement world where I am very open but skeptical on and about products.
Egg head scientist breakdowns are always boring to me unless we’re talking DMAA, DMHA, or just Pure Caffeine….maybe L-arngining, and Beta alanine, Nitric Oxides ect…..However as a stim fan I would be remised if I did not mention the “Insanity Blend”. Though it is not shown from the sup facts, this pre carries a powerful punch of stimulation at 300-400mg caffeine per scoop. The scoops are a true heaping or as my boy Ed says from Muscle Players (youtube channel) a whole heapa scoopa. Seriously the scoop servings are mega. As far as focal point with stim you’re not going to find much that runs the gamout of a DMAA or DMHA, This is pure stim and pump agent working here. Pump Fuel INSANITY Blend 24677 mg ** RAPID ATP v.4 Blend 3000 mg ** Creatine (Kre-Alkalyn) 1500 mg ** Magnesium Creatine Chelate (Creatine MagnaPower) 1500 mg ** NITRO|PUMP Blend 2500 mg ** Pump Complex (L-Citrulline, Agmatine Sulfate) 2000 mg ** Arginine Silicate Inositol (Nitrosigine) 500 mg ** BETA|BURN Agent (Beta-Alanine (CarnoSyn)) 2500 mg ** AMINO|ENERGY|FOCUS Blend 1139 mg ** Amino complex (Taurine, L-Glutamine AKG, N-Acetyl-L-Glutamine, L-Glutamine, L-Isoleucine, L-Leucine, L-Valine) ** Energy and Focus Complex: ** GLYCO|LOAD Blend 15538 mg ** Dextrin complex, Waxy Maize, Glycerol Powder, GlycoCarn, ArginoCarn
I favor this pre-workout above most others (particularly gnc carried) because it has such a great flavor profile. I’ve tasted them all from the insane strawberry, to the electric lemonade and they all taste like they would mix well in a cocktail. Dosing at a full scoop runs about 300-400 mg caffeine depending on which flavor you buy. And you can choose to concentrate this at 1/4-1/2 cup and I do or do the full 8-12 oz water mixing. It makes no difference the flavor is still very palatable.
Though it is a pure stim/pump pre it gets the job done. crazy, insane energy with wild vascular pumps. Had I not fallen in love with Mesomorph I may still be using this as my primary pre today. As stated in the title, “insane stim for beginers”. If you are taking your training very serious and don’t want to venture off the beaten path of vatamine shop or GNC to the lesser franchise retailers then this would be top of the line choice.
At the time that I was using this product it got it at 45-50 bucks a tub at GNC. Not bad at 870 grams. At a full scoop rated at 30 scoops per bottle for 50 bucks you were getting a $1.70 per serving. That’s if you were going hard in the paint at a full scoop per use. Not however, I see it’s running about $80 at GNC online. You maybe able to find it cheaper. Though 870 grams is a sizable tub I cant see $2.70/scoop for a GNC level pre. I don’t care how top of the line it is. You maybe able to find it cheaper online or at another nutra shop but unless your down for the crown with big bucks I would hard pass.
I saw no real side effects off of this product other than a relative tolerance. That goes away the longer you ween yourself off but, there is a real lethargic crash factor. One of the reasons I stopped and switched up was due to the tolerance build up and the crash. After switching to mesomorph I noticed that the focus agent in Pump Fuel was far inferior to the other stuff that was out there. I was just becoming a zombie in the gym on this stuff tired but restless.
As stated before, great product for beginners. Great taste and mixability, great pump and stimulation. Horrible tolerance build up, horrible pricing but the best in my humble opinion that GNC has to offer. If the price were to come back down to 40-50 bucks a tub I would definatly buy it again but at 80 dollars………not so much.

Not bad, but not great
—-Introduction — I was looking for a pre workout to get me started as I was relatively knew and I found this at my local GNC, it was reccomend we so I figured it was worth a shot
It has a fairly decent ingredient stack as it contains a healthy amount of Kre Alkalyn, Citruline Malate, And other proven ingredients.
The taste isn’t the best, i got pink lemonade and the flavor is quite strong and overall is more of a just chug it and get it over with kind of drink.
I can overall say I experienced very positive results from using this product. I noticed more aggressive and energetic pumps in the gym along with increased vascularity and strength. It definitely does it’s job well
I’m not gonna lie, it is quite pricey when you compare it to other pre workouts of its caliber. There are better ones for the money
I personally don’t have a huge tolerance for stimulants and experienced some anxiety and jittery effects presumably from the large amounts of caffeine, but I lowered the dose age slightly and that helped a lot.
Overall it is a great Pre Workout that does it’s job well but there are definitely better ones out there for the money in my opinion
