Pre Koala Freak Reviews
Quick Summary41 year old man that still enjoys a high stimulate Pre workout from time to time. I had been wondering about this one for a while before I pulled the trigger.
IntroductionStaunch nation and Calum Von Moger has done pretty well bringing up some Hype to his products. I have watched a few videos of him and he seems like a really cool guy and so I thought maybe I should try this one.
Ingredient ProfileServing size is 17.20g ( but I am having a hard time matching that up to the ingredients on the bottle )
Pretty good profile, even though I think the caffeine is a bit high for me.
Thiamine 75 mg
Vit B6 75mg
Folic acid 300mcg
Vit B12 50mcg
Citruline Malate 2:1 6000mg
Arginine AKG 2:1 750mg
Agmatine Sulfate 750mg
L-Norvaline 100 mg
Beta- Alanine 3200mg

I think this would work better with a slightly lower dose of stimulates in it. I feel that if it was lower this would deliver a really good pump.
There really is nothing huge or new and improved with this one I do not think.
Taste/Mixability/DosingI got the Aussie Apple and It was pretty good, Nice and tart but not overkill
Mixed up really well too.
EffectivenessI did not know what to expect from this one, So first the time I took a half scoop and it was a good " awake " feeling. So the next heavy lifting session I had, I took a full dose. It turned out to be a pretty strong, but not so much that I did not like it. I enjoy a hard hitting Pre here and there so this one fit the bill just right. Now because of the High caffeine that is why I never got a huge pump I would assume. Now one thing about this one is , DO NOT TAKE THIS LATE IN THE EVENING!. If I took this any later than 6pm and tried to hit the bed around 10pm . It was dang near impossible to sleep.
I never had any weird after taste or upset stomach or crash from this so big points for that.
ValueIt is more costly than most other Pre's that I would typically buy, but I found a good deal through staunchnation and did a bundle of this and the Bcaa Hydration. This alone with run you are 39 - 49 bucks on amazon, which is the cheapest place to find it.
Side EffectsRestless sleep if taken close to bed time.
ConclusionI think the price could be a little less as there are few trademarked and highly sought out ingredients in this. Also I would like to see the caffeine a bit lower but that is just me. Overall a solid and fun , different Pre workout.

I could see why you didn't get a huge pump. It's a good pump complex but there's nothing too special about it. Maybe if CM was 8g and Agmatine was 1g then you might have gotten better pumps. That is a huge dose of Theanine. Hopefully it didn't mellow things out too much. It sounds like it didn't. I love Hordenine. That stuff always takes the stim experience up a notch if dosed high enough. Did you see any better than normal strength gains with that ElevATP?
