This pre-workout should be called sidewalk crack, because that’s pretty close to what it is. Iron Addicts Sidewalk Kraka is not a joke. Just take a look at the flavors and it’s easy to see: Fruit F**kin’ Punch, Superman Sour Apple, and Get That Sh*t Grape are a few examples. This is probably one of the most extreme pre-workouts I have tried.
If you drink pre-workout like a cocktail this is not for you. My best advise is to adhere to the suggested 4-6oz of water and just throw it back. I had the fruit punch flavor, and my roommate had the blue lemonade and neither of us enjoyed the taste. It was bitter and gritty, but if we are being honest pre-workout is not just about taste. So, if you enjoy sipping on your pre-workout I don’t suggest this one.
If you are like me then you will look at the nutrition label for Sidewalk Kraka and wonder what half of the stuff is. Obviously 300mg of caffeine is a lot and it it paired with 3.2g of beta-alanine, but what are the rest of the components? Well theocrine, theobromine, and eria jarenesis extracts are stimulants like caffeine, but they aren’t as strong. This adds extra energy with out the unwanted side effect. Choline Bitartrate helps with mental cognition, mental stimulation, and it also improves memory. Naringin is unique to grapefruits and it helps boost metabolism. However, another cool thing about naringin is that it is an antioxidant that seeks and destroys free radicals(cancer promoting agents). Lastly rauwolfia vomitoria is a medicinal plant that contains rauwolscine, which helps the body burn fat.
I usually don’t do a conclusion paragraph, but I believe this post needs one. This pre-workout has a 2 star taste but is extremely potent. I will say it is not for everyone, but if you are looking for a super powerful workout give this a try. My usually rating scale combines pump, taste, and price averaged out, but for this pre-workout I believe rating it in that fashion will not truly show how good it is. So for that reason I will be leaving out the taste in the rating factor.
