    Controlled Labs Sample Pack - Review WF, GM, PI, PW, GG

    Brief overview of myself and supplements:
    I've never taken any pre-workout/intra or post supplements before except whey and water. I was quite excited to try out this sample pack. I've stayed away from caffeine and coffee for over a year now and just drink water or tea.

    My workout routine is wake up 5am, eat a banana/whey shake with water and be lifting at the gym for just after 5:30am. I eat breakfast after my workout when I get home. Usually I'm home within 15-30 minutes after finishing the workout.

    Reviews: I tried each supplement on different days and followed the directions on the sample packs.

    White Flood White Raspberry:
    Taste/Drinkability: 9/10 - This stuff tasted good. Very easy to drink. I would give it a 10/10 except for the fact that your supposed to drink so much water with it. I'm not used to drinking 16-20oz of water pre-workout.
    Effect: 3/10 - I was yawning a few times in the gym which was surprising to say the least. I got a slight pump and had a good workout but nothing far beyond normal. I would love to give this product another shot since it tasted so good with a bigger serving size but I'm not going to spend money to buy a tub and take that chance when I was yawning during the workout with the sample serving size.

    Green Magnitude Sour Green Apple:
    Taste/Drinkability: 10/10 - Love it. Could drink it all day. It has a bit of sour kick to it but not too much, just right.
    Effect: TBD/10 - To be determined. Had another decent workout but never noticed anything out of the norm. This product is added to my cart though and will post an updated review on the effects when I take it. Will probably be starting this product in about 3 months when my green bulge is used up. I'll be ordering the 80 serving tub.

    Purple Intrain Purple Raspberry:
    Taste/Drinkability: 8/10 - Tasted good, easy to drink. A bit of foam since I used a shaker instead of a spoon but I expected that. Still easy to drink and just needed a few light shakes during the workout.
    Effect: 6/10 - Didn't notice anything and felt like a normal workout. I rarely suffer from DOMS and recovery was normal. I still rate it a 6 because even though I'm not feeling anything, there is still a bunch of good vitamins and ingredients that must do some good, hopefully. I was just expecting more.

    Purple Wraath Juicy Grape:
    Taste/Drinkability: 9/10 - Another great tasting supplement that I had no problem drinking.
    Effect: 5/10 - I used this for my cardio workout. Was doing some interval running and had to slow down half way through because my stomach was feeling a little bit ill. Not sure if this was the cause so it still gets a 5, but its possible. Still a bunch of good ingredients like Intrain that are useful.

    Golden Gains Apple Pie:
    Taste/Drinkability: 8/10 - Tasted good, I don't eat a lot of apple pie but for a drink, It's pretty close to the real things flavor. Had to mix it up well to get everything to dissolve but it eventually dissolved without problems.
    Effect: 8.5/10 - I would count effect as a part of value for this supplement. Getting all the fruits and veggies with the protein and the other things makes this supplement quite a deal for the price. I personally don't need a meal replacement or after workout shake at the moment apart from normal whey, but if I did this would be at the top of my list.

    Sample pack results:
    Before trying the sample pack I was on the edge about buying Green Mag and White Flood. I was curious about all 3 other products. Like I mentioned earlier I will be purchasing Green Mag and not White Flood and don't plan on purchasing the others.

    I feel like the pack was great for testing out the flavors but I feel like it doesn't give the products a chance to show their stuff because of the small sample sizes. I probably would of purchased full size tubs of White Flood/Purple Intrain or Wraath and tested out the whole tub but now since nothing really caught my attention, I'll probably look towards a different pre-workout supplement like Superpump or Jacked and Intrabolic as an Intra workout and see how those work.

    Hope this review was informative, feel free to ask me any questions in the thread or PM.

    I dont understand, so you are willing to give products that have no samples a chance, but wont chance it on products you at least already know taste good and have no GI issues?

    also, were you on stims recently? there is virtually no way to at least not feel the stims in wf. did you eat right before hand?

    as an FYI, you can get a one week sampler of three products direct from our site for only 12.99 if you want to try them out longer before committing to full tubs

    thanks for the review, we appreciate all feedback

    I am giving green mag the chance since I'm ordering that. I don't see how it would make sense to order White Flood since it was obviously not working if I'm yawning during a workout. I would give it another chance if I could get a double serving to see if that works but the only way to do that would be ordering a full tub or a one week sampler and doubling up on White Flood. That doesn't make much sense in itself since I'll be ordering green mag anyway. Don't have a need for GG at the moment, PI was alright and might try it in the future and I got a bit of a headache on PW after the workout and didn't feel great during so don't really feel like giving that a shot. I'll order another sample though and give it a try on weight day.

    So out of the 3 categories I'm giving 1 the chance. I couldn't care less about the taste of a supplement as long as I can down it and it works. But not everyone is like this so I made sure to describe the tastes a bit

    As mentioned in my original post, I've never been on any stims and stay away from caffeine so I'm not sure why it didn't work. I was expecting a rush. Food was banana+whey shake with water at 5am and took White Flood at 5:15, was lifting weights at 5:40.

    By all means I'd love to stick with an all CL stack since its my creatine and multi. The sample packets just didn't do it for me.

    A few tips, if I may? I guarantee, if you wait at least 1hr after eating/take just 1 scoop of WF on an empty stomach YOU WILL FEEL IT. Also Green Mag should be taken 30min pre & try mixing the PiT & PW samples on weight day(s). Absolutely FULL OF WIN!

    yeah, if you dont feel white flood it was either taken wrong (with a good amount of food or something else) or you have been on stims too long. stims should work in 99%+ of people at the very least.

    either way, thanks for the feedback and we hope you enjoy green magnitude. Hoping you will grab some more sample packets of white flood though and give it another chance as the vast vast majority of people love it
