You guys don’t know, but two days ago had to be the most terrifying moment of my life. After sucking down two cups of coffee (1pm and 4pm), I decided to “test” out my new pre-workout, Amino Energy, at 6pm.
Yeah. Bonehead move. There was no effects at the moment, but I while I was walking to my bus stop after work, I got super lightheaded. Why? Maybe too much of a surplus in caffeine.
I tried sleeping around 9:30, and everytime I closed my eyes and went into a stage of sleep before I actually fell asleep, everything felt like it was moving and I would get a jolt of warm energy from my elbows to my hands. This ensued to 11pm, 1am, 3am….I had enough. I was down near on a 24-hour stint and I headed to the clinic to get some medication to fall asleep. Disclaimer: do this only during worse case scenarios…never on a regular basis because these drugs are terrible and they can affect your kidney.
I went to sleep around 4:30 am, woke up once to call in sick, and slept again until 11:30 am. I felt so groggy and completely fatigue, but it was because of the excess caffeine.
So, I was scared when I woke up. I looked at my pre-workout and it looked at me. I said, “should I, “and ‘it’ said, “should.” I took only a half-a-scoop and off I went to the gym. Now, there were no tingling effects or anything, but what I felt was an extreme amount of focus. In this class had 4 other women and a guy. The women I like to call “fair-weather” because some days they say good morning, other days they completely ignore you. Didn’t matter, but it was motivation on top of the focus.
When the workout started, I was zoned it COMPLETELY. This reminded me of the day I took Jack 3D back in 2012 and my energy was bouncing off the walls. I didn’t give up once. I kept it rolling for a full hour, which is unheard of. Even during breaks, I kneeled and remained focus….normally I would chat it up or try throwing some conversation gambits out there for bait (lol).
Now, is this as good as Stimul, my absolute favorite pre-workout? Well, Stimul never gave me insomnia. All will tell later on tonight if I can sleep or not.
Nonetheless, the ingredients, reviews and everything I saw online made me purchase this two days ago, and it surely didn’t disappoint.
