Beyond Yourself
 
Anyone try any of there products? Thinking about getting the PreWod and AMRAP. Would like to hear some feedback on them first. Thanks!

Looks extremely scam-ish to me..."increased ready energy, improved capacity for muscle explosions, lactic acid reduction, unsurpassed mental focus..."...if it really did all those things, you'd see Michael Phelps and Ryan Lochte and Usain Bolt shilling it.

PreWod has a "proprietary blend" that includes caffeine and B12, which leads me to believe you could see 99% the same results with 8oz of coffee and maybe a B12 pill that should cost you a dime a day. The AMRAP supplement appears to be nothing more than BCAAs, which are actually useful, but can be found for cheaper any number of places.

To me it sounds like someone has a marketing ploy aimed at CF'ers. Give it a try and let us know the results after a month or two.
