Storm Review

Jason’s Review of Storm | Universal Nutrition

There are a ton of muscle building supplements out there. The thing is most of them really do work to some degree. Some may work better than others, and some people may respond to certain supplements while others may not. One of the most awesome concepts in my opinion regarding supplements is formulas that contain multiple ingredients. Sure, if you’re only taking one or two elements it makes sense from a budgeting perspective to go with just a couple stand alone supplements such as creatine or glutamine. The formulas (example: pre and post workout formulas) can be a little pricy. However, I’ve found one product that’s sort of in between meaning that it is comprised of a few solid ingredients but it’s also not one of those overpriced products with a long list of ingredients, most of which you don’t even know what they are or what they do. That supplement is Storm by Universal Nutrition.

Basically Universal Nutrition Storm is comprised of two complexes. The first one is called Hypervol Complex which contains 5,000 milligrams of various forms of creatine. In my opinion, creatine is creatine. The different types of creatine you have more to do with absorption. The second complex is called INOXsulin-7. This consists of taurine, betaine anhydrous, citrulline malate, arginine, beta Alanine, ALA and a derivative of leucine. All of this is 3750 milligrams, which isn’t very much but probably enough to get the pump effect during a workout. The best part is that this product contains 80 servings and is relatively cheap on most supplement websites. This can be taken before, during and after workouts.

My Use/Dosage of Universal Storm

I’ve tried Storm several years ago but started it again recently from the time of this review (April 2011). Being hardcore and all, I started taking 2 scoops post workout along with Universal Nutrition’s EAA Stack (I feel it’s imperative to take amino acids post workout). Well, this sent me to the throne in a bad way for several days. So I stopped taking Storm altogether for a week then jumped back on it only taking 1 rounded scoop post workout. I only take Storm post workout and only take it on training days (no weekends).

*** Late 2011 I started using 1 scoop of Storm with 1 scoop of Universal Atomic 7 post workout.

My Experience with Universal Storm

Pros: At the end of the first week I noticed that I was pumped and my muscles looked a lot fuller than usual. Be careful if you use 2 scoops; as I stated above 2 scoops gave me some major stomach problems but I was fine with 1, and I’ve found 1 scoop is just as effective. Storm is one of the few bodybuilding supplements that I’ve gotten noticeable gains from in such a short time. Although I only take Storm post workout you could take this pre and post workout. It’s relatively inexpensive too.

Cons: Other than the stomach issues I had with starting out with 2 scoops, I have no complaints here.

Storm is an extremely effective supplement if you’re looking for a standard muscle builder.And for the price, you really can’t beat it (80 servings and you can usually find Storm for well under $30…that’s just crazy compared to what some of the other supplements costs that aren’t near as effective). The thing that would make Storm the ultimate post workout supplement is if some BCAAs or EAAs were added.

I always tag the end of any Universal Nutrition product with the fact that Universal has been going strong since 1977.
