Ape Shit Pre Workout Review: Does It Live Up To The Hype?
Primeval Labs has been a very well known supplement company for years now. They have released many different fitness and bodybuilding products across the years.
Today we will be reviewing one of the most known pre-workout supplements called Ape Shit.
First of all, the name is absolutely crazy. I mean, a pre-workout is all about energy and strength, so who doesn't want to go ape shit, right?
The first thing we noticed was that it has a proprietary blend on the ingredient list. As you might know, we are no fan of blends whatsoever. We would like to know what is inside a supplement before taking it.
However, let's find out more about Ape shit pre-workout in the review and how well it worked.
What is Ape Shit Pre Workout?
First of all, let's take a closer look at what this supplement is all about.
This pre workout supplement will support your workout by giving you energy, aggression, focus but also improving blood flow which could result in better muscle pumps.
Ape Shit comes in 6 different flavors and contains 20 servings per container. On the package itself, the market is as 40 servings but on the ingredient facts they mention it only has 20 servings since you would need to use 2 scoops for 1 serving.
At first sight, the label looks very good and promising. They haven't added any crazy claims about this product so that is always good.
Ape Shit is designed to give you that extra edge in the gym by increasing your energy and focus.
If we really want to find out if it's a good pre, we should take a closer look at the ingredients!
Ape Shit Formula And Ingredients
So, let's take a closer look at the ingredients of Ape Shit.
We are going to break it down in 3 categories, pump, stimulants, and Focus ingredients.
They added a total of 4 ingredients that could be considered a pump ingredient since they all have the potential to boost nitric oxide which in turn results in better blood flow.
4500mg of L-Citrulline has been added to this formula. This is a decent dosage since the average is between 3 – 6 grams.
They also added Agmatine Sulfate which is known for its nitric oxide increasing effects. The other pump ingredients are Beta-Alanine and L-Taurine, which also help with endurance and energy.
They added a couple of stimulants to this formula to give you that energy rush feeling.
There is a total of 254mg caffeine, which is equal to about 6 cups of coffee. For some, this could be experienced as relatively high, so if you are not familiar with stimulants, then I would recommend starting with 1 scoop.
In their blend, they mention that they added yohimbine, which is also known as a potent fat burner and stimulant. The combination of caffeine and yohimbine can be intense. Unfortunately, we are unable to see how much yohimbine is added.
2 scoops of Ape shit will give you a total of 13,7 grams. Which compared to other pre-workouts is average, especially since you only get 20 servings per container.
You could compare this pre-workout to Total War or Bucked UP, which are both not really stacked at all.
They added the necessary ingredients to this pre-workout; however, they could have included higher dosages or more ingredients.
Our Opinion on Ape Shit
While they have an amazing name and concept with going ape shit. They disappointed us with their formula, Primeval Labs is a company that used to bring out hardcore products.
Well, Ape shit isn't one of them.
Don't get me wrong, it's a decent product which is probably a good starter pre-workout supplement.
It gave us decent energy and focus effects but that is all. We've got way better results with a pre-workout like Wrecked.
They are also missing some ingredients that could be beneficial in power output, like creatine.
This pre workout is definitely not for people that are either stim junkies or looking for insane effects.
We would rate this pre-workout a 6/10 because it's simply not that effective like other pre-workouts, plus they hide some of their ingredients on the label.
The Bottom line
Ape Shit is a pre-workout designed by Primeval Labs to help you with energy, focus, and mental clarity.
The formula they added is average in terms of effectiveness. It's comparable to other popular pre-workouts like Total War or C4.
In our opinion, the effects were relatively weak. However, it could be an excellent pre-workout to start with.
It's definitely not a supplement you want to use if you are a stim junkie.
The price compared to the number of servings and ingredients you get is relatively high.
We would recommend taking a look at other pre-workouts like Wrecked by Huge Nutrition. This one is clinically dosed and will give you the results you want.
