Dammit I just wrote up a thing and lost it. Oh well here it goes again
I've only used it twice (got it three days ago) so this is just a preliminary report. I used it once for a weight workout and once for a HIIT session.
I'm a long term user of malto and dex. With the WMS I'd say the comfort in my stomach (for pre weights) was a little better. Nothing extraordinary. I've been using the same concoction for so long that I'm really used to it. But I noticed definitely that I was less sluggish at the beginning. Felt stronger and less heavy limbed at the beginning of my warmup. Overall energy levels were really no different in general, however.
I got a crash toward the end of the workout. A weak low sugar feeling. I didn't have anything but accessories left so it didn't affect me. I have a feeling that the crash is temporary. I took a relatively small amount as I'm still figuring out my tolerance but I probably just need to get used to it. If the problem continues I'll bring down some extra to drink.
For postworkout there is nothing really to report. I didn't feel it "surging into my muscles" like some people have said.
For the HIIT session it was good. I basically chugged it and went right to it. With malto and dex I would have to wait around 15 minutes. No crash for this relatively short workot. Used it for post too and everything was hunky dory.
So a little improvement in comfort and it seemed to kick in faster for sure. But overall nothing miraculous for me. But as I said it's all very preliminary.
This is the first WMS product I've used so I can't compare it to other products. It was chalky like some others have said. I'd be worred if it wasn't to chalky since it IS supposed to be corn starch
. I didn't find it too unpleasant but it's not something I'd want to be sipping on during a prolonged endurance event. I got regular strawberry flavor which I don't find nasty like Sleazy does, lol.
