Lately I have been asked about products that help with intra-workouts blood flow and improved pumps. For those of you who are into bodybuilding work outs and are interested in better pumps, better endurance, and crazy focus during your work outs, this product review is for you!
In this article I will cover the product VASKY by MTSNutrition. Having tried this product for a couple of months, I felt this product was perfect for one of my product reviews. As someone who is not into caffeinated products and just wanted improved work outs, I decided to give this product a try (if you are into stimulants and want a badass pre-workout give RUCKUS a try). The aspects of the product I will review in this article are taste/mixability, effectiveness, and price.
I honestly did not care too much for the taste of VASKY. It wasn't that the product tasted bad, but I have had better tasting pre-workouts. Given that the product had much more in it than other pre-work outs I had taken, it would be harder to sweeten and make taste like other pre-workouts. I would usually mix VASKY with their amino acid product Machine Fuel, because I literally LOVED the blue snow-cone flavor of that product. The product mixed very well and there were no clumps whatsoever. I did not even need a blender bottle to mix the product fully. I did like how it mixed well with other products as well, not just on it's own.
Unlike the other two product reviews, I wanted to talk more about this product's effectiveness versus it's ingredients. With amino acids, it is pretty straight forward, the more the better. On the other hand, with pre-workouts you could have a lot in the product, but could also have countless useless ingredients. I always judge pre-workouts by how effective they are for a few sessions.
How did the work outs go? I honestly felt better using the product. I usually train in the early morning, in a fasted state (before eating my first meal of the day), so I had always gotten horrible pumps and my blood flow was pretty bad. While going through that period of training fasted, I never got the same skin stretching pump that I would after a big meal full of carbohydrates (when I trained in the afternoon). After using the product I noticed that I got better pumps. More blood flowed through the muscles, I was working the muscles better and I could contract my muscles with more force. Being a non-stimulant product, I did not get any jitters and I did not crash after the work out.
Vasky sells for $19.99 on TigerFitness. That is roughly 60 cents per serving (30 servings in a container). Not bad given must pre-workouts/vasodilators sell for 20 to 40 dollars per container of 30 servings.
For someone wanting to find a product that gives better pumps, focus, and intensity WITHOUT stimulants, this product was something I truly loved! For anyone that has followed my youtube channel for awhile, you know I have completely kicked caffeine and will not be consuming caffeine whatsoever as a permanent lifestyle choice. This product allowed me to get the benefits of most pre-workouts without the jitters, crash, or sensation of anxiety. Anyone looking for the benefits of a pre-workout without the flaws of a pre-workout would definitely enjoy using this product!
