AndrogenetX Ė MOV2
Muscle Oxide Version 2 A.K.A. MOV2
ďIf you enjoy sipping pink, cotton candy flavored pre-workouts while on your way to pizza night at Planet Fitness, then this is definitely not the supplement for you.ď Ė AndrogentX
This is the 2nd version of Muscle Oxide from AndrogenetX. They tweaked the Formula some and then added 20% more to the Bag. So now you get 1.2lbs of Pre-Workout.
AndrogenetX caught my attention for a couple of Reasons with this MOV2.
No Proprietary blends. Everything is listed with the amounts. No guessing or wondering how much of whatever is in it. Just about every single other Company that produces a Pre-Workout. Thinks they are on to something with their top secret Proprietary blends. When reality very few Pre-Works are worth a damn. Many just dump loads of Stims and Beta-Alanine. So you get your energy and you feel the BA kick in. So you think itís working and to a point they are. AndrogenetX Took it a step farther. They stripped all the fillers, colors, flavors, and preservatives and this is where the 2nd part I like. Itís all Raw Powders. AndrogenetX set out to produce a Pre-workout that attracted the educated lifter, not a Gym rat who gets all caught up in Advertising Hype.
What is all in AndrogenetX MOV2
Creatine Monohydrate 5g
Citrulline Malate 5g
Agmatine Sulfate 2g
Thatís a pretty good list of ingredients and dosages. You have ingredients to give you the Pump, Energy, Focus and Endurance to make it through the toughest workouts. Every ingredient listed as a purpose. As for their dosing they are just about perfect.
I would like to see more of Citrulline Malate and Taurine. At least 1 gram each. Bring the Citrulline to 6g and the Taurine to 3g. I think that would be more effective dosage for these, but then I would just be adding more grams per serving. So I think the Creatine Mono could be switched out for some Creatine HCI to make up the difference in serving size.
By no means am I upset or not satisfied with MOV2. It does its job and it does it well. I have never been disappointed with my workouts while using MOV2. AndrogenetX has one Solid Product that I have no problem recommending to anyone.
The only drawback and really I donít see it has a drawback. The flavor isnít something to be desired. Orange Juice is the best thing I found to mask the flavor. Iíve tried mixing it with Fruit Punch, Soda, Cranberry juice and Orange Juice was the best.
My overall rating is 8 out of 10Ö Just for the fact I would like a little more Citrulline, Taurine and the taste for some might be too much. Itís not a heavy overdosed Stim based Pre-Workout. Itís a nice solid and consentient Pre-Workout that you wonít crash on.
