I received a free sample in the mail. At first I was skeptical about this product. I train moderately for about 4-6 days a week, so I am concerned with what I use. With definite signs of massive energy, it has dramatically improved my performance. This product has got me hooked and I certainly wouldn't want to miss this in my workout. I highly recommend it to those who feel tired and need a boost. Whether for weight-loss or muscle-gain, it is a great product to fuse into your training.

I received a sample of this and gave it a go for a couple of days now in the morning before cardio. I noticed a Good energy boost and good focus, especially since I'm taking this at 6am. No problem getting on the treadmill. So far so good. It's too early to tell how the weight loss will be but I'm liking my cardio sessions more

this product did nothing for me after 2 months and 2 bottles later (4 pills a day). I ate clean and worked out 5x week, cardio 4x wk. I'm trying a new brand next

Once again Muscle Tech coming through with a great tasting product. This stuff tastes like candy and gives you the rush of a bunch of sugar, without the crash later. I received this product as a free sample and used it as a pre workout. For someone who has never used a pre workout (other than coffee) I found this to be extremely beneficial for cardio days. I usually do cardio 3x/week for 60-90 minutes. After using this product on a cardio day I was able to increase my intensity by a lot on the treadmill and stair master. I was so impressed. Burned an extra 375 calories. The fruit fusion tastes like the fruit punch amino build if you have tried that. If not, it pretty much tastes like Minute Maid Fruit punch. MIxability is on point. Didnt even need a shaker cup. I cannot rate this as a weight loss product because I only used for preworkout. Love it!

I received the product for free as part of the MT product test group. Here are my thoughts. Price: not familiar with usual pricing for thermogenic powders but you get a lot of servings for the price especially when not using the max dose, Mixability: shaker : easy - no leftover cup + spoon : less ideal but works pretty well Flavor: good but too sweet with recommended water; you can always use more water anyway. Effects: off day (1 scoop): heartbeat a little faster throughout the day but no adverse effects which is a big positive for me. Taken before studying for a midterm: So much focus, time flew by. Fat loss while studying :) awesome Taken before exercise: felt a little dehydrated but like doing cartwheels

Got Fruit Fusion as part of the MT product test Team for free. I am not looking to lose weight but I had to try it out as more of a pre-workout. I combined it with some Beta Alanine for fun. I took about 3/4 scoop and didn't enjoy the experience. I felt like I had actually lost energy. I could still put in a decent workout but I felt terrible during the workout instead of good. I recovered fast once I stopped working out but I have not had such a bad workout in a very long time if ever. I just did not agree with this product. Sorry MT...this is not for me.

So I just started my 6th week on the pill form. 1st day was 2 pills upon waking up, 30 minutes before eating breakfast, just to test my tolerance to the stims. Normal dosage is 2 pills/twice a day. Taken 30 minutes before your 2 biggest meals. I began normal dosage on my 2nd day. WARNING! If you are caffeine sensitive, than this isnt the product for you. Anyhow, the 1st week of use i was very jittery, sometimes unfocused. My mind seemed to be running a little faster than my body was, i was literally dropping things because i picked them up before they were 100% in my clutches. I spilled half a tub of protein like that = ******. But the jitters subsided after the 1st week, as my body became tolerant to the stims. I started stacking my 1st dose of the day with my Pre-workout, talk about Beastmode. Workouts over the past 4 weeks have been intense and very sweaty. Great product. Ive lost 11 pounds over the last 5 weeks, mostly fat, some muscle, but thats normal when cutting. Your diet and training has to be on point if you want to lose fat. No pill or supplement is magic. You have to work for it and it will work for you. My cutting diet for info purposes and to those looking to gauge their plan is as follows: (per day) My 1st 2 weeks: 1.33 grams of protein per pound of bodyweight 1.1 grams of carbs per pound of bodyweight .45 grams of fat per pound of bodyweight My last 3 weeks 1.33 grams of protein .65 grams of carbs .35 grams of fat I weight lift 6 days a week and cardio for 20 minutes 4 times a week.

Got a free 30 serv. tub of the Hardcore Powder as a member of the MuscleTech Product Test Team. I took about a 4g scoop today (serving size is 2.8) and was very pleased with the results. Persistent energy, not too strong and not as "itchy" as preworkout powders with beta-alanine are. Just focus and intensity to push me through my workouts. I especially like that this product features a simple ingredient list, that are proven to be effective. Solid buy for someone looking to lose weight/on a cutting diet.

Have read all the feedbacks before i bought 3 bottles! So what to say? For me - this prep is EXCELLENT! works perfect - no headache, no bad feelings at all, 1.5 kilos of fat loss weekly - i gives me. What i think about all negative feedbacks: you have just try. It's known, that every particular body works with every prep in it's own way. i give a strong 10 to this fat burner!

Recieved this as a sample, tastes alright it is tolerable compared to other I didn't feel as pumped as I wanted to I didn't get a tingling feeling which is a down side for me but I did sweat a good amount which is awesome because I don't really sweat as much as I want to.

Mixability: I put some in a water bottle and it mixed with a couple quick shakes. Flavor: Delicious! I could not even tell I was taking a supplement. Feel: I was pretty tired but the caffeine content put some pep in my step. I took this on my cheat day so I might not feel guilty about pigging out.

I am part of a testing group for MuscleTech and I recently received this product. For my fitness regiments, I used this as a pre-workout and did receive good energy and focus. When working out outside of cardio, I generally do not sweat and if I do its mild. The thermogenic helped me sweat more where after a short period of using this product, I feel more lean because my body is able to shred more water weight through exercise. But, the flavor of this powder is horrible, if mixed with the 6oz of recommended water, the flavor is very sour. I recommend diluting it more in order to bear taste.

So i was super excited to test this product out. i purchased the fruit fusion powder rather than the pills. the 1st day it made my stomach upset. but i could feel the energy and the thermo, i was hot and sweating. it makes me crave water, i drink like 3 bottles during my workout after taking it. I do get an accelerated heart rate, but i do high intensity cardio after taking it so i'd have one regardless. i'm at the max dosages now and now that my body has gotten use to it i'm hooked! i love it. it makes me wanna go faster, and further and feeling the sweat drip down my face motivates me. i haven't weighed myself yet considering it's only day 3. i'll check back in about 2 weeks. great product so far

I've been taking these for a few weeks now and I've really enjoyed it so far! I really like how it acts as both a preworkout and a thermogenic, that way I'm not stimmed out by taking a preworkout and a thermogenic separately. It provides me with great energy to get through my workout and I can just feel myself sweating more than usual so I know the thermogenic properties are doing their part. would definitely recommend if on a cut or just need some energy for the gym in general!

I received this product free being part of the product test team, I used this product as directed 6oz of water to one scoop, the flavor was slightly sour but pretty good for a fruit punch, it mixed decent a few floaters, the energy came on quickly and lasted 1.5-2 hours and was slightly jittery. The thermo effect is fairly strong I was sweating pretty good after only 10 minutes of my routine. I would definitely recommend this product to someone looking for a good thermogenic.

I would not suggest this supplement to anyone that wants something that actually works. All it did for me was add a bit of alertness. Besides that all I got was a headache and bad dreams (literally).

I did not feel a surge of energy that lasted but I did feel a faint rush of energy after 30 minutes of taking 2 pills. But it did not last throught out the day after taking 2 pills twice a day. (2 at the am & 2 before lunch) I didn't believe that Hydroxycut has change its ingredients but they have and now it DOES NOT WORK. This is my 2nd month and 2nd bottle with clean eating paired with cardio3x/wk and weights 3x week only 5lbs lost.

I received this product from Muscletech for free as part of their field test team. I have been using it for well over a month now and really like it. It doesnt make my heart pound out of my chest while Im at the gym like other pre workout powders. I would suggest taking it with at least a little something to eat so its sets ok in your stomach. I would also suggest taking earlier in the day as recommended on the label because it really does give you a ton of energy. I leave the gym after about 2 hours, usually having thrown in a few games of basketball as well, and feel like I did when I walked in. It gives you long lasting energy without the jittery feeling.

I'm rating this product right in the middle because, while it seems like it would help you cut, it's side effects are so ridiculous that I cannot use it. Pros: this is definitely a hardcore stimulant. I had a ton of energy and no appetite. I can see how this product could help someone shed fat. Cons: holy f*ck the side effects are insane. I was jittery and anxious all day (after taking JUST ONE PILL before breakfast). I felt like my heart was going to explode and I even had to forgo my pre-workout because I couldn't handle any more caffeine all day long. Sixteen hours after taking the one pill, I still couldn't sleep. I imagine this is what bad crack feels like. Granted, I don't drink a ton of caffeine and I'm pretty small.

I'm surprised how popular this product is. I must be a freak of nature because I absolutely hated this stuff. In fact, it was the first product I ever returned. I wish I knew more about some of the abstract ingredients in this because I'm practically immune to caffeine. Still, I started with the recommended 1 capsule dose to test my tolerance. I gave it 3 days before I quit. I had never felt worse in my life. My heart was racing, limbs were weak, it was hard to walk, let alone workout! My stomach killed and I had non-stop diarrhea. I recently tried 1 more capsule (about a year later) from a friend and had the same exact reaction.
