Supplement Review Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre

By Andrew Pardue

Overview

    I normally don’t use pre workouts supplements but between college classes, a job, training clients and training for my next show some days I wake up and feel like I have nothing left in the tank. I recently got a couple pre workout samples that I use on “rainy days” to give me the extra boost I need to get through tough morning workouts. I recently had a day like this and thought it was a good time to break out my ON Platinum Pre samples to try.

 

    The directions say to take 1-2 scoops approximately 20-40 minutes before a workout. I decided to start with 1 serving since I don’t normally use pre-workouts.  I took it 30 minutes before I started lifting (Before driving to the gym and warming up). 15-20 minutes after consuming I could feel my energy begin to go through the roof. I was ready to kill my leg workout and felt great overall.

 

Side Effects

    Since ON Platinum Pre contains beta-alanine you can expect the typical beta-alanine tingles. I personally had my tingles in my mouth, more specifically my tongue.  I also felt a slight burning sensation in my mouth. While this sounds really unpleasant it was more like eating a spicy piece of gum. This only lasted a few minutes and wasn’t nearly enough to deter me from using again or recommending to people. Also these effects can differ from person to person so I wouldn’t worry too much about this aspect.

 

Taste

    The flavor of my sample was Super Fruit. The direction say to mix one serving with 6-10oz of water. I once again met in the middle and used 8oz. Using 8oz still gave a pretty strong flavor. Obviously if you like a more tame taste I would suggest adding around 10oz. I was happy with the flavor and with the fact that didn’t have to take it like a shot just to get it down like other pre-workouts.

 

Effectiveness

    Platinum Pre gave me amazing increases in energy and focus. I will without a doubt use this product again and was very happy with it overall.  I took this supplement on a day that I would have normally had to drag myself through my workout to finish a very challenging leg day. Instead I had an amazing workout with plenty of energy throughout the entire time at the gym.

 

Crash Test

    Since Platinum pre contained caffeine I was a little concerned that I would end up crashing right before my summer classes that begin soon after I leave the gym. I am writing this about an hour after my workout and I still feel great other than the normal fatigue from a hard leg workout. ON Platinum Pre gave me plenty of energy without causing me to crash and feel bad after lifting. Anyone wanting to avoid a crash after using a pre-workout should definitely look into buying this supplement.  

 

Bottom Line

    The bottom line is without a doubt I loved this pre-workout and would recommend it to anyone wanting an extra boost in energy without a bad taste or crash.
