Gaspari Nutrition has some really great products in their line these days, so I was pretty excited to give their new pre-workout a try. Claiming to provide explosive energy, sensory stimulation and focus, recovery priming, and performance support, SuperDrive is labeled a pre-training energy superfuel. Here is my Gaspari Nutrition SuperDrive review.
SuperDrive is composed of 2 main blends. The cellular energy blend includes ornithine malate (as mitoDrive), carnitine tartrate (as Carnipure), and microencapsulated triacetin (as Glycospan). Ornithine malate is a precursor to citrulline, thereby enhancing nitric oxide (pump!) and supporting performance endurance. It also supports recovery and power. Carnipure is a special grade of L-carnitine that helps the body burn fat as a source of energy. L-carnitine also helps delay fatigue during exercise and promotes recovery post-workout. Glycospan is designed to volumize your muscles for more pump while buffering lactic acid to support exercise endurance. The second blend is the neuro-energy matrix, combining tyrosine, DMAE, citrus aurantium, and caffeine . It has been formulated to enhance performance and mood as well as increase mental stimulation.
To assess your tolerance, start with 1 scoop (or less). Mix 1 scoop with 8 oz of cold water and consume about 20-30 minutes before your workout.
SuperDrive mixed up fairly well with a few seconds of good shaking.
I’ve only tried the orange mango, and it was good. Thumbs up on the flavour.
As with other pre-workouts, SuperDrive is most effective when taken on an empty stomach. I started with 1 scoop and never had to increase the dose. It’s rare that I find a pre-workout that gives me consistent results without having to increase the dose because my tolerance builds up. The focus I felt on SuperDrive is unmatched. I was ready for anything. Pumps and energy were decent. I had more strength at the gym, and I could definitely train harder for longer before feeling the burn. Another huge plus…NO crash!
This is a solid pre-workout, one that I will go back to in the future. SuperDrive delivered on its claims – intense mental focus, increased energy, enhanced pumps, more power, increased endurance. If you would like to give it a try, and I recommend that you do!
