Fire Bottle - 04/04/2014 Overall Rating:4 out of 5 Reviewer:Jimmy from Cincinnati Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
I've been a Jack3d (original) user for years, cycling off and on every 6 weeks, so the bar was set extremely high. I've tried a ton of other pre-workouts over the last year since Jack3d prices have skyrocketed and supplies have run out, and I gotta say Pre is probably the best when it comes to pure energy.
I went big from the get-go and started using the 2 scoops and I'm glad I did. I don't think 1 would give me the energy needed to do my hour to hour and a half at the gym. The only downside to this is that you blow through a bottle in 15 workouts. I work out 5 days a week so that's 3 weeks for 25 bucks. Or 50 bucks for a month. Pretty typical pricing, I guess, just don't let the 30 servings fool you. It's only 30 if you do 1 scoop.
I sweat with this pre-workout. I'm not a sweaty person. I could run a mile and do an hour long workout on Jack3d and look like I didn't lift a feather. But on this, I sweat. And it feels good.
The only downside to this product is the bottom of the bottle. MY GOD DOES IT BURN! My fiancee and I have come to call it 'Satan's Anus' because it's just pure stinging fire. The crystals at the bottom just annihilate your mouth and if you chug it down without hitting your mouth and try to avoid it, it just roasts the inside of your throat and stomach. It's napalm.
Very solid energy and focus
Gives a pretty good pump on it's own
Decent flavor. Tastes like Sweettarts
Lasting energy with little crash
Solid supplement/stim profile
50 bucks for a month is steep
Satan's Anus at the bottom

LOVE IT - 08/29/2013 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:Butters from Pinellas Park, FL Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
LOVE this product. I have tried many other pre-workouts and while doing CrossFit those products have caused a lightheaded feeling and dizziness. During intense workouts and heavy maxes I have no problems with this product. I keep focused during my workouts and full of energy throughout the whole workout.
Platinum PRE - 07/22/2013 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:Kyle from Concord, NH Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
I've used Platinum PRE before. I love this stuff. It works great for me. It's probably not for everybody, I've heard some bad reviews from a good amount of people but I've also heard a lot of great reviews as well. Like I said it works for me and I will continue to use it.
Works Well - 12/28/2012 Overall Rating:4 out of 5 Reviewer:Tim Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
Platinum Pre works well, taste is okay, a little medicinal. There are also grainy parts that do not mix.
Amino energy is my favorite! I love the watermelon flavor. 4 scoops is great for a pre workout, I also mix it into my post workout recovery. Sometimes I will have a scoop as a morning cup of coffee.
ON delivering it once again! - 12/12/2012 Overall Rating:5 out of 5 Reviewer:BrazilianBadBoy from nj Product:Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
So earlier this month I received Platinum PRE Raspberry I ripped open the Raspberry first and poured it in my shaker almost immediately. I saw in the back that one packet was 2 servings but since I have a very high tolerance to pwo I took the whole thing.
I put about 16oz of water and drank it down.
10 mins in my ears were all itchy lol. It was too funny, I was cracking up. It went away after 10 minutes.
Taste gets a 9. Suprised me because I do not like Raspeberry but it was good! Not sweet, no sour, it was pretty nice. No after taste when it was done.
Energy gets a 9.5 as well. I walk to the post office to mail something and I was walking a super fast pace for some reason lol. And I'm a very slow walker. At the gym I was killing it!
Focus gets a 10. While I went to the post office and did another stuff at the house all I wanted to do is get to the gym already and workout. While driving I was all focused too. At the gym nothing caught my attention but the weights.
Mixability gets a 10. There was a little left in the bottom because I had washed my shaker before pouring the powder in. So I guess it got stuck there because of that. But when there was a bit left I shook it and it was all gone. That was a my fault. Little foam on top after I first shook it but there as little to none after I took my first sip.
Little note: I peed 5x in an hour after drinking this lol.
Note 2: My lats were super sore yesterday and today, today was back day and after my first exercise(pulldowns) was over I was no longer sore!
