I received my 4 Gauge preworkout supplement in the mail a couple days ago. Today was first day trying it out. You can check out my video below, and I also have some more thoughts in today’s post.
As most of you know, I wake up around 4:30AM to go to the gym. I got up a little later than usual this morning, slammed down a couple of scoops of 4 Gauge, and started my day (2 scoops = 1 serving).
I normally take a little more, and sometimes double (yes, we all do!), the recommended dosage of preworkout supplements. Yet I stuck with the recommended dose for my first time taking 4 Gauge. I may up it a little tomorrow.
My commute to the gym is about 15 minutes. I didn’t feel anything on the way there. In fact, the 4 Gauge preworkout didn’t really start kicking in until I started on my *working sets.
*Working sets = ‘official sets’ after your warm-up sets.
Once I got into my working sets, my energy levels were sustained throughout my workout. There was never any surge or sudden boost like some preworkout supplements give you. That could be a good or bad thing, depending on what you prefer.
I will say this; the effects are what I call clean energy. What I mean by that is 4 Gauge seems to work more as you progress through your workout. It’s not an overwhelming feeling yet you’re able to pump out a few more sets and reps.
All that said, I had a great chest and triceps workout this morning. Is 4 Gauge now my favorite preworkout supplement? It’s too soon to tell. I do like the smooth and sustained energy without the spikes and the crash that often comes with some of the more potent preworkouts. But I will be posting more updates and a full blown review of the product soon, so stay tuned!
