"Shadow-X is a mind blowing pre-workout designed for hardcore users only
1 scoop will take you to a state of focus and intensity you've never felt before
Mind lock mental focus, intense muscle pumps and savage training intensity"
The Shadow-X pre workout formula is as follows:
- Caffeine Anhydrous – 350mg
- Beta Alanine - 2000mg
- Taurine - 1000mg
- L-Citrulline - 2000mg
This is per serve (1 scoop!). Most supplement companies will do the dodgy on the servings per container label and state that a pre-workout supplement has 30 servings per container, little does it mention that this is at a half dosage – e.g. by consuming the recommend amount of 2 scoops you’re instantly brought down to 15 actual servings per workout.
Shadow-X by Cobra Labs clearly states that at the full serving size in order to get those scientifically backed doses of ingredients you’ll get 30 serves per tub.
My Shadow-X Pre Workout Review (My Experience Using Shadow-X)
Here’s my complete experience using several tubs of Shadow-X.
Shadow-X gave me fantastic focus between half a scoop and a full scoop (start with half a scoop to assess your tolerance).
This is a 'clean' rush of energy as opposed to the dirty or 'wired' feeling a pre-workout supplement like 1 MR or Craze provides.
Enter the gym with Shadow-X and a plan for your workout and prepare to kill it!
As much as I value my workout intensity I'm not willing to sacrifice the rest of my day for it, therefore it's imperative any pre-workout supplement I use does not come with an almighty crash afterwards. There's no crash here!
Shadow-X is great in terms of mixability - forgot your shaker? No worries - a single scoop of shadow-X mixes easily in a glass of water with a teaspoon unlike many other pre-workouts!
The only other pre-workout I've seen with this level of mixability is Mike Matthew's Pulse.
I’m not a fan of the taste of supplements in general with the exception of protein. Tropical and fruity based flavours which are generally artificially flavoured exude a chemical taste. I’ve been using the Lemon Zero flavor of Shadow-X and admittedly it isn’t that bad!
Having used Cobra Labs alternative pre workout supplement, The Curse I can vouch for the value of their whole line-up of supplements - you're getting clinically proven dosages of ingredients (complete transparency on the labels!) at a rock-bottom price.
