So you need a pre workout supplement and don't know what to buy? Check out our review of Typhoon Labs Rapture pre workout supplement below!
Typhoon Labs is a new Australian supplement company entering the pre workout supp market for the first time with Rapture. Rapture entered the pre workout market in late 2016/early 2017 with a DMHA version before DMHA became banned in Australia. Like most pre workout and fat burner supplements, Typhoon Labs reformulated their pre workout for a highly policed Australian Market.
Typhoon Labs have gone with a blend for it's ingredients, broken down into subheading compounds. Visit www.typhoonlabs.com.au for a full break down of ingredients on request.
SUPER ANABOLIC COMPOUND 4G
The Super Anabolic Compound consists of two popular pre workout ingredients- Carno Syn Beta Alanine and L-Citrulline Aspartate.
CarnoSyn Beta Alanine is regarded as the best compound of Beta Alanine available and help fights off lactic acid allowing you to push harder through your sets.
L-Citrulline Aspartate (1-1) is an amino acid normally made by the body. The body converts L-citrulline to L-arginine, another type of amino acid. L-arginine improves blood flow. It does so by creating nitric oxide (NO), a gas that helps dilate blood vessels.
EXTREME VASCULARITY 1G
Typhoon Labs have gone with a 1g blend of Agamtine Sulfate and AAKG in Rapture to increase blood flow and provide epic pumps through your workout.
INSANE ENERGY AND FOCUS 400mg
We believe this is where Typhoon Labs have really turned it up with Rapture. Possessing 4 strong stimulants in Caffiene Anohydrous, Octopamine HCI, Eric Jarenisis and Theobromine and 1 popular focus ingredient in Theacrine, Rapture hits as hard as any pre workout of any post DMAA era. Yes, that's right- One would be right to assume Rapture contains the now banned DMHA as it stacks itself up against the best pre workouts of the last 2 years as well as humiliating its predecessor.
A scoop of Rapture contains 5.5g of powder and a quick maths equation would see Typhoon labs have given us 5.4g of active ingredients... thats well over 95% actives which means only 100mg of artificial flavours and colours are included.
Typhoon Labs have given us 1 flavour of Rapture so far- Kiwi Sunrise. To be completely honest I was nervous in trying this unique flavour but Typhoon Lans have done an amazing job, likening the taste to Lime Cordial. The taste of pre workout supplements has improved in recent years and Typhoon Labs hasn't disappointed with Rapture.
RRP on Rapture is $59.95 for 30 serves. Just under $2 a serve, the price point for Rapture in today's market is extremely fair. Modern Day pre workout supplements are rising to between $64.95-$89.95 with some having as little as 20 serves, so Typhoon Labs have looked after the Australian market with its price point on Rapture.
So, down to the most important part of any pre workout... How did I train on it.
To be totally honest again, very few pre workout supplements I use last the journey of a tub. I generally get given new products to try more often than the duration of a tub but with Rapture it was a different story.
No lies here, When we first got Rapture in I didn't know what to expect and I misjudged the nutritional label by taking 2 scoops. My workout was a nightmare.. I was stimed out of this world and paranoid, albeit my own fault for being reckless.
The next day I went with the one scoop as advised and I had an amazing workout. My energy levels were high, my endurance through sets was at its peak and the pump was as good as any I have had on any pre workout. I was surprised by the quality of Rapture as much as I was impressed. I continued to use Rapture until I had completed the tub and I will 100% go to Rapture again in the near future. The energy is high to very high, endurance is brilliant and the pump is as quality as most pre workouts without 6-8g of Citrulline.
If you are as hungry as me for the pump, stacking Rapture with Citrulline Malate just enhances the solid pump, available below
If you are keen on cutting some kgs, stacking with Acetyl L Carnitine is always recommended, available below
Typhoon Labs needs to be applauded for Rapture. What may seem as an unknown pre workout that isn't available everywhere will soon turn to one of Australia's most popular pre workout supplements once the word is spread. Do yourself a favour and hit up a sample of Rapture to try today or get on board before it becomes sold out.
