Time for another supplement review. The last review I did was on Optimum Nutrition’s 100% Whey Protein Gold Standard. This time, I’ll get into the pre-workout category and go over Muscle Pharm Assault which is the current pre-workout supplement that I am using.
Usually I don’t really give much praise to pre-workout supplements because they’re not a necessity when it comes to transforming your body, but for those who need the energy boost at the gym, this review is for you. I’ve tried several other pre-workout drinks like Jack3d, SuperPump Max, Presurge Unleashed, and 1MR… but let me tell you right now: Muscle Pharm Assault is the best one in the market right now.
Taste and Mix-ability
The #1 thing about Assault that a lot of first time users notice is its taste. I have the fruit punch flavor right now and closest drink I can compare it too is Kool-Aid. Drink it with cold water and the taste is just incredible. It’s not too sweet and it’s very easy to down because everything just mixes together so easily. You won’t taste any clumps at all as you’re drinking it. Compared to other pre-workout supplements, Assault’s taste and mix-ability is definitely the best.
This is what makes Assault the best pre-workout supplement in the market. You won’t find anything else out there like Assault. Here are just some key highlights:
Muscle Pharm claims that Assault contains more than twice the active ingredients as most of its competitors, making it one of the most powerful pre-workout products on the market. Each serving is half a scoop and contains 23g of the ingredients. Taking one full scoop is ALL you’ll ever need as it contains sufficient quantities of creatine, arginine, citruline and beta-alanine. No need to take extra scoops just so you can “feel” the product working.
After taking a serving of Assault, you can feel the rush of energy kicking from the caffein within 10 minutes. You’ll also feel a little tingle from the beta-alinine, but they’re not crazy jitters that you get from high-stimulant products like Jack3d. By the time you get to the get to the gym, you’ll want to start lifting as soon as you step in. The energy and focus is just intense. As you go through your workouts, you’ll definitely feel stronger and you’ll also notice that your endurance is better. The weights you lift will seem very light, no matter what type of exercise you do.
The pumps are just crazy. On the very first two sets of your workout, you’ll get a pump so strong that it feels like you’ve been working out all day. At the end of your workout, you’ll feel like you need to stay for another hour because you don’t feel tired or sore. You will literally need someone to pull you out of the gym.
A lot of people take into consideration any side effects of products that they use. The side-effects of Assault that I’ve noticed? Continuous energy AFTER the gym. As soon as I get home from the gym, my energy levels are still high and I feel like I’m on top of the world. This lasts for 2-3 more hours, and I get very productive as soon as I get home because it’s hard to just relax and sit down. I HAVE to do something. So if you were wondering about any side effects that this product has, well, that’s all I got for you.
Muscle Pharm Assault retails at $69.99 but you can find it on Amazon for about $30. It only comes in one “size”, which is the 1.76 pound tub which has 32 servings. The tub will last you over a month if you only work out 3-4 times a week.

Overall Grade: 4/5
This stuff is legit. It’s not stim-heavy and its ingredient profile is just amazing. If you’re using something else right now, buy Assault next and try it out yourself. You won’t regret it. I’ll sure be sticking to this pre-workout drink for quite a while. Muscle Pharm is a great company that’s growing bigger and bigger each and everyday. With all the money they’re making right now, they sure know how to put them to use and make excellent products.
