I picked up a bag of Ascent Pre Workout a few months back and wanted to give feedback to our readers on its performance. I added a half scoop to a shaker bottle with water and ice and mixed it up. It is best not to put the pre-workout on the bottom of container as it can clump up. I avoided that by adding water and ice first and then the powder.
I will say that this is not just another pre-workout. It has protein and a carbohydrate in it along with a fair amount of sodium (250 mg). This is helpful if you are doing a workout in the warmer temps and need to replenish your sodium during or after a hard workout.
I have been using this product about 30 minutes before an afternoon workout or a mountain bike ride. It has zero grams of sugar and no artificial ingredients. It is certified gluten free and has 150 grams of caffeine per serving. For calories per gram it has fat (9) carbohydrate (4) and protein (4). The taste is pretty good. I did not dislike it at all but it was not the best over the top flavor. As far as pre-workout drinks this stuff is pretty mild which is fine by me. You can get carried away with the pre-workout stuff and it can hit you pretty hard.
