Old School Labs brings you vintage blast. , from the packaging, it’s clear we are trying to link back to the early bodybuilding days of many a year ago. The design is memorable and brings with it some appeal in the format. But what we want to know is will it deliver at bringing you what is needed to get through a workout.
A tricky time of year at the minute with work and family life bringing with it all demanding so much time when it comes to workouts I’d rather just catch up on some sleep. So with workouts either happening late at night or during my lunch break it’s really important for me as like so many others that I’ve got something to give me the kick up the arse required to get the job done. I think my requirements for a pre-workout are around the same as the majority of people. I need something to power for an hours workout but at the same time i also don’t want to feel that buzz for the rest of the day, things like the day job tend to get in the way.
Vintage Blast looks to provide the energy that powers your workout from start to finish, it is fighting back against those pre-workout’s which just aim to fuel a ‘buzz’ without the substance to help you achieve better workouts.
This really has some standout ingredients in it, things like D-Aspartic acid are present in some of our best testosterone boosters and put together we generally really like the ingredient mix of this. While it does contain some caffeine it’s not the greatest
L-Citrulline Malate 5,000mg – Studies show its effectiveness as a NO booster and also at reducing fatigue.
Beta Alanine 1.000mg – This is the part that will result in the ‘buzz’ feeling that will send tingles through your body. Research has shown it can help athletic performance but this may only affect the highest level athletes.
L-Arginine 1,000mg – Can improve athletic performance and NO boosting. It has only 1g per serving, similar benefits to L-Citrulline Malate.
L-Carnitine Tartrate 250mg – Improves focus and muscle movement
Caffeine Anhydrous 150mg – We all know the benefits of caffeine, this will instantly release into your bloodstream, everyone has different reactions depending on there daily caffeine consumption. This is equivalent to 2 cups of coffee so it is a fairly large chunk.
D-Aspartic Acid 2,000mg – Widely used as a top ingredient in testosterone boosters based on natural ingredients. More than 3g is the recommended dosage so this could be combined with a Natural Testosterone Booster
Synephrine HCL 25mg – A legal ingredient with similar benefits to Ephedrine only less potent. Combined with caffeine this should provide a great kick.
Vintage Blast Taste/Mixability
Overall mixed in well and i really enjoyed the taste. The mixture settled well and was easy to sip on without any bits showing up.
Conclusion – Vintage Blast
I enjoyed the vintage blast and i like what they are aiming for, this doesn’t make you feel too hyped up after you’re done but i felt like i got sufficient energy to get through a workout. However my caffeine intake through the week isn’t that high so if you are chugging down the free coffee at work then it might leave you feeling like something is missing.
