Gorilla Mode Pre-Workout Review: We Test 1 & 2 BIG Scoops!
It's time to bring you yet another in-depth pre-workout review, and today, we're looking at Gorilla Mode.
Is this a pre-workout you're going to want to add to your collection?
What effects are we going to experience when taking one and two-scoop servings?
Don't worry; we're going to answer all your questions in this Gorilla Mode Review – make sure to keep reading.
Some of you might have already heard of this pre-workout, as it's built up quite a hype over the last few months.
Gorilla Mind has formulated Gorilla Mode, and it's the strongest pre-workout they carry. They're a company with a wide variety of supplements, and you'll find plenty of other unique products on their site.
Of course, the hype about this pre caught the attention of the SupplementsReviewer team. That's why we got ourselves a bottle of the Gorilla Mode pre-workout.
We've probably tried it around five times in total. You know us, we don't just take supplements once before we share our opinion.
By trying a product a minimum of 3 times, we can see if it delivers consistent effects and results. Let's move onto our experience!
Our Experience With Gorilla Mode Pre-Workout
Gorilla Mode's label shows two options on how to take the pre-workout, which is by taking one, or two scoops.
We've started with one scoop. We've got a high tolerance for pre-workouts but still wanted to give the one-scoop a try.
From this, we didn't notice much, to be honest. For experienced users like ourselves, one scoop just doesn't cut it. So, there's not a lot more we can say about the use of one serving.
Below, you can see the breakdown of ingredients per servings.
That's when we immediately moved on, taking two scoops for our second try. As you can see on the panel above, there's a massive difference between taking one or two servings.
You're getting double of each ingredient. It's expensive, but that's something to discuss later on in the article.
When we took two scoops, we got in the zone to work out. I'll go over each effect we noticed from taking the Gorilla mode pre-workout.
We're starting with the energy we got from this pre-workout. In terms of energy, it was pretty average and nothing special. One of the stimulants in it is Caffeine at 350mg per two scoops, which isn't too crazy.
We wouldn't really classify this as a hard-hitting high-stimulant pre-workout, but more of a smooth and milder one that provides decent energy.
We noticed a significant improvement in cognitive functions from this pre, meaning we got good focus during our workouts. It's incredible to really be able to concentrate while your training a specific muscle group.
There are several quality nootropics in it, and they're dosed relatively high, meaning they're bound to work.
So from our experience, it's better for enhancing focus than it is for boosting energy.
The last effect we're going over is the pumps. We like it when pre-workouts give us a good pump by shuttling more blood and nutrients to the muscles.
With this product, we had quite a solid pump. There's a lot of reliable ingredients in it to help with getting more blood to your muscles.
For example, it contains 9 grams of L-Citrulline, which is an excellent compound for pumps. If you're one of those people who love to chase a pump while working out, consider giving this product a try.
What Do We Think Of The Formula?
When we look at Gorilla Mode's formula, we would say that it's reliable and stacked. We've got some massive dosages in here and several staple ingredients that'll help with optimizing your workouts.
We're not too big on ingredients such as Creatine in a pre-workout because they have to be taken for more extended periods to have effects.
It's also too bad that they didn't include any Beta-Alanine – the ingredient that makes you itchy and ready to go. But, I can see why they would leave it out; not everybody likes the itches it gives.
All in all, I'd say it's an above-average formula. The only downside is that a stacked formula usually comes with a price tag, but it's the quality you pay for.
Gorilla Mode Pricing & Taste
So, how much is a tub of Gorilla Mode pre-workout going to cost you?
Well, it's $44 per tub on the official Gorilla Mind site.
The tub holds 40 servings at 1 scoop per serving and 20 servings at 2 scoops per servings.
We didn't find 1 scoop to be sufficient, so if you're used to taking pre-workouts, you'll quickly start taking two scoops.
And that means you're looking at you're going to be looking at $2,2/serving. On the higher range of what we're used to and I guess you could say that it's expensive.
Gorilla Mode comes in 5 different flavors: Tiger's blood, mango peach, fruit punch, firefly lemonade, and bombsicle.
For the review, we tried Tiger's blood, which tasted pretty good for a pre-workout. We had no issues with chugging this down before our workouts.
Final Thoughts And Rating
We're a bit in between when it comes to the Gorilla Mind pre-workout. It's stacked and delivers a solid pump and focus, but we're really missing the energy with this product.
In our opinion, it doesn't pack enough power, and we would've loved some more stimulants to get us going.
That leaves it somewhere in the middle. Nothing special, but far from terrible. If you're looking for that energy rush in these kinds of supplements, then we think you're better off with a different product.
As previously mentioned, we found that it was a pre-workout that focuses more on focus and pumps. But, we didn't get that ”ready to hit the gym” feeling from taking it.
Keep in mind; our tolerance is relatively high. This means that you might experience things differently.
