I hate blends! All the ingredients sure do intice noobs, which is their targeted market. But here's reality...It's severely underdosed. If I were you, I'd take double the dosage preworkout only at least. Actually, you're better off buying the ingredients seperately IMO-

Here's the recommended servings for the ingredients-
-Taurine: 1-4 grams effective dosage with at least 1 gram preworkout.
-L-Tyrosine: The daily dosage for most will probably fall in the 3-12 g range. Exceeding this amount is not recommended, and the dosage should be started on the lower end of this range to determine personal tolerance, especially if one is taking stimulants or antidepressants. The dosage should be divided among 3 or more doses daily. Around 2 g prior to exercise may be used to improve athletic performance.
-Arginine: 3 grams pre/post is most effective.
-Creatine Ester: 2-3 grams pre/post.
-L-Glutamine: At least 10 grams once postworkout, once before bed.

And now here's the label-

Serving Size: 1 Scoop (20g)
Servings per Container: about 45

Preworkout ingredients-
Amped ECN Pumped Blend 2,500mg
Creatine Ester Phosphate Sodium, Creatine Monohydrate, N-Acetyl Cysteine
Amped ECN Nitro Blend 1,200mg
L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine, L-Valine
Amped ECN Neuro-Energy Blend 1,634mg
Taurine, L-Tyrosine, Caffeine Anhydrous (100mg), White Willow (Salix alba) (bark) (standardized to contain 15% Salicin), Vinpocetine
Amped ECN NOS Blend 2,000mg
L-Arginine, L-Glutamine, Alpha Ketoglutaric Acid
