MusclePharm Assault Pre-Workout Review

MusclePharm Assault Pre-workout review

MusclePharm’s Assault has been a go-to pre-workout supplement for bodybuilders and fitness folks across the world since it first released onto the market, but what makes it such a popular product?

Assault initially associated itself with MMA, which might or might not have been some sort of marketing ploy, but the proof they say is in the pudding. So is MuschelPharm Assault really that effective?

The Good

Great ingredients to support athletes

Assault’s main focus lies in increasing your strength and performance, which is exactly what a true athlete needs to boost his performance. Creatine Monohydrate is the anchor of Assault, and together with the other ingredients, Assault works hard to replenish ATP levels, re-energizing and re-fueling your muscles, upping your endurance levels and increasing your overall energy expenditure. Assault also packs the power of Beta Alanine, Betaine Anhydrous, L-Glycine and Caffeine to provide you with the best basis to ensure you have a kickass workout.

Great performance booster

Assault’s energy begins to kick in within 10 minutes of taking the supplement, which is when you’ll start to feel the tingling sensation caused by the Beta Alanine. Muscle pump is improved with Assault, and thanks to Creatine, you also have enhanced strength.

Great taste

If you like Kool-Aid, you’re going to love Assault. The taste isn’t too sweet and it’s easy to get down since the product mixes really well. When compared to some other pre-workouts, Assault definitely sets the benchmark for taste and mixability.

The Bad

Side effects

One of the most discussed side effects from taking Assault is the continuous energy you’ll have long after your workout. Even after your workout, Assault’s energy kick lingers for a good two or three hours, so it’s definitely not a supplement you’re going to want to use late at night, unless off course you like not being able to fall asleep.

Price

At a retail price of roughly $69.99, MusclePharm Assault is not cheap. You can find it for a good price on sites like Amazon, but you’d be lucky to score with a sale.


The Verdict

Overall, we scored MusclePharm Assault a solid 4 out of 5 points. It’s not a heavy stimulant supplement and we love the ingredient profile. The fact that it’s not a proprietary blend just makes the deal that much sweeter. So, if you’re sensitive to caffeine, Assault probably isn’t your deal, but if you’re keen on experiencing an amazing energy rush, we’d happily recommend MusclePharm Assault.
