Musclepharm Assault Pre Workout Review
Assault by Musclepharm has proven itself to be one of the best pre workout supplements on the market in both the view of the industry as a whole and the view of our dedicated bodybuilders. Initially we were skeptical about Assault, considering all of the hype going around and its affiliation with MMA which we considered to be a potential marketing ploy. However, you guys kept raving about how effective and strong this stuff is, so we gave it a try and were very satisfied.

Musclepharm Assault Content (caffeine, etc.)
Assaults formula is loaded to the teeth with performance enhancing ingredients. For someone used to taking C4 or Jack3d, you will be surprised by the size of each serving of assault. In the mix, you’ll find a range of ingredients that we’ve come to expect in a quality pre workout such as beta-alanine, BCAAs, caffeine, and a pump matrix. For those of you that are sensitive to caffeine, or have never experimented with pre workouts; Assault contains roughly 300 milligrams of caffeine which is the equivalent of 3 cups of coffee. This can be too intense for a small portion of weight trainers; however for the majority of bodybuilders that are familiar with pre workouts – this dose is just right.
Lifting Weights with Assault Pre Workout Review
We had a great time in the gym with Assault to say the least. We began taking the pre workout 3 weeks ago and our timing was scheduled perfect. We ate our pre workout meal at least two hours before hitting the gym, and then took assault exactly 30 minutes before lifting on the way to the gym. Within about 10 minutes, the energy from assault begins to appear along with the beta alanine tingle sensation. Upon beginning the lift, energy levels were very high and confidence was up.
Chest Day – Taking assault on chest day was quite an experience. Muscle pump was noticeably improved, but the main benefit was additional creatine strength and power that both increased maxes for the day while increasing endurance.
Recovery – Assault did not necessarily reduce the soreness after the gym, however muscle growth and strength increases were way up. We attribute this to the amino acids promoting additional muscle growth while the extra force exerted during our workouts led to more muscle damage.
What’s in Assault Pre Workout
Like mentioned above, assault contains a lot of ingredients in effective dosages! Here is the what’s-what regarding the ingredients that we find important and attribute assaults superior performance to.
BCAA complex: Assault contains a branch chain amino acid complex rich in leucine. This is a personal requirement for myself when choosing a good pre workout, because leucine in particular is the most important amino acid to take during your workout to trigger muscle growth.
Nitrate Transported Pump and Creatine Matrix: Linking hard to absorb creatine and pump ingredients such as arginine with a nitrate (soluble) molecule greatly improves bodily absorption and cellular uptake of these performance enhancing compounds. Very few pre workouts contain this mechanism!
Cinnamon Extract: Cinnamon extract has been found to balance blood sugar which can be directly related to growth hormone production, and increasing endurance and power during your lift. For those that have a rough diet, or consume too much sugar and simple carbs, this can be a real game changer.
Choline: Part of the energy complex in Musclepharm assault is Choline Bitrate. Choline increases mental clarity and alertness which in the gym translates into increased focus and ‘mind power’. A large part of the stimulant complexes in pre workout supplements are based upon increasing your mind power in the mind over matter model.
