Was invited by Alex Javier to join him at the opening of True Fitness ang mo kio at Djitsun Mall.
True Fitness is located at the 4th floor of the Djitsun Mall in Ang Mo Kio. Location is pretty accessible with good dining location nearby(e.g. astons).

The ambience of the place is very soothing, music playing will be more of a soft pop. With blue lighting with makes the place a really comfortable place to train.
As you can see here the gym free weights area is not very big. Only 4 benches. As compare to their cardio area which takes up a lot of space.

MusclePharm Assault New Formula #Gamechanger

I just ordered this awesome pre-workout online.
Cant wait to get my hands on it!

Check out this post for my review on this #gamechanger

Finally MusclePharm Assault has arrived

Product Packaging

Assault, musclepharm, singapore, fitness, blog, heechai, scoop, preworkout

The main difference in this new version is their Athlete Performance Blend – ArgiNitrate, Bcaa Nitrate, CreNitrate which is said to be more effective. Nitrate dilates the blood vessels so it will enhance and blood flow and helps with the distribution of the nutrients.

Next is their Purenergy –

Some information about purenergy

  • A sustained energy boost*
  •  A reduction in the amount of caffeine needed in a formulation to produce tangible results*
  • The creation of a more moderated and gradual finish, preventing the “crash” experienced with caffeine products*
  •  The optimization of natural appetite-suppressant properties*
  • Additional functional health benefits found in pTeroPure pterostilbene* 
  • made up of 43% Caffeine and 57% pTeroPure

As you can see the chart i have gotten from ChromaDex shows a big difference between caffeine(bottom bar) and purenergy(top bar). As you can see caffeine started off with a higher amount of concentration but after the first hour the caffeine dips rapidly but purenergy is still on the rise. Purenergy peaks at the 2nd hour and starts to drop graudually.

MusclePharm do it differently from other competitors, as you can see here they even added in the pillow pak to abouse humidity and odor. Awesome!

quality of the powder

Drinking the Assault – Taste.

Great mixability, i prefer the taste of this version of Assault compared to the previous version.

In my opinion i can feel that the effect of this preworkout kicks in faster than the usual one that i took.

It doesn’t gives me the sudden spike in energy, i can feel focus thru out my workout.

Minimum crash afterworkout as well, but some how i feel that it suppresses my appetite as i feel full after a meal (which dont normally happen).

Took the product about 6 hours before bed time and i have no problem sleeping.

Overall i think that this is a new breakthrough for preworkout in the industry and it is worth a try.

Thanks for reading!

Beastmode Heechai

Introduction of the product

MusclePharmT-shirtsuper soft poly-cotton tee is key for looking unrelenting in the gym and the streets. Made with the comfort and style only MusclePharm Sportswear can provide.
My view
I am so happy that I am able to review this awesome T-Shirt by Musclepharm.  First of all the design of the T-shirt really caught my eye, “BEAST MODE”, WEAK END HERE and many more!
The cotton is slightly stretchable; Material is not too thick suitable for Asian country like us in Singapore. Good to use for bodybuilding, running, cross fit or any kind of sports! It can also be worn when you are out as it is fashionable as well! Best of all It doesn’t stinks up after you a hard sweaty workout!
After a few wash the shape of the t-shirt still remains. Not much expanding of the t-shirt. *2 thumbs up!
Rating
9/10 flashy design, good quality material, doesn’t stinks up.

Quite a lot of customer is there but there are so many machines around, so the waiting time is not that bad!

A must try! I will definitely go back again!

Review – BPI – Pump HD

BPI – Pump HD blue ice lemonade. 
So far the best tasting Pre workout I have taken. 
Very mixable. Sweet taste follow by a sour after taste. 
Definitely a very strong Pre workout.
This one is slightly different from the rest of the BPI Pre Workout as it contains some Leucine some electrolyte something different from rush and 1mr. 

I tried sipping thru the workout, the focus was great but I think the caffeine content is a little too strong. 
For those who never try Pre workout before might want to consider using half a scoop. Per serving contains 11g of powder. Overall awesome Pre must try! 

Bring your container to NutriFirst and ask me for a free serving if you want!
