So I was perusing YouTube as usual and came across this preworkout concoction that was too interesting not to try out. It’s called Hyphy Mud and here’s the creator KaliMuscle to explain to you exactly what it is!
Now, I don’t take a pre-workout before the gym, I usually have enough energy and focus to get by without it. Although, I have tried a months supply of MusclePharm’s Assault, which was quite interesting. Basically a pre-workout is a drink you take prior to working out which is mainly filled with stimulants that keeps you focused on lifting weights.
The first time that I drank MusclePharm’s Assault I got a tingly, prickly sensation all over my body. This was from the beta alanine which aides in preventing muscle exhaustion. By the time I got to the gym and started lifting I felt like King Kong and Godzilla all rolled up into one. I was this big unstoppable beast that has just snorted powdered Unicorns and was running on rainbows. I had only one thought in my head and that was to LIFT WEIGHTS!! Not only that but to do it with a vengeance, if that weight was going down it was coming up no matter what. It was tunnel vision and all I could see was weights I wanted to lift.
But with all stimulants the effects gradually became less and less every time I took it. That coupled with having a pre-workout drink, a workout drink, and a post workout drink was just too much for me and I just stopped taking it. I am more than satisfied with just having a post workout shake or smoothie. Mainly because I am SUPER lazy.
Now back to HYPHY MUD!!
It’s a little Pepsi and instant coffee mixed together. How easy and awesome is that? Remember I am lazy. So I mixed some up and slammed it before my workout. Taste? That first hit of the foamy mixture does make you snap your head back and go “God Damn, that’s got some kick!” The rest of it, not so good. Maybe I did not have the correct ratio of instant coffee to Pepsi? It was an overall bitter, foamy wreck. Basically it’s just caffeine on top of caffeine.
Did I feel more focused? Nope. Did I feel like King Kong? Nope. Did I wanna lift weights? Always! Did I feel anything at all? Yes. I felt a rumble in my stomach. It did not like Hyphy Mud, at all, and it took very little time to tell me. I did get an awesome glute workout out of it as I had my cheeks clenched tighter than ever to make sure I did not leave skid marks all over the gym. The MUD in Hyphy Mud did not stand for Makes U Dangerous, for me it stood for Makes U Diarrhea. So there you have it, if you want to lift weights with an urgency of finishing quick so you don’t liquefy your pants, then this is the drink for you!
