August 2019 and Disorder a new pre workout, manufactured by a new supplement company namely Faction Labs hit the shelves around Australia. Oh no! I know what you’re thinking, “not another pre workout”. Right? Well I’m here to tell you wrong, Disorder isn’t just another pre workout. It’s been launched with lots of thought behind it and as such it ticks lots of boxes. Let’s then have a look;
Disorder Formula and Dosage
First thing you may notice about the ingredient panel is that there are copiously high amounts of actives including 450mg of caffeine anhydrous, 6000mg of citrulline malate, 3200mg of beta alanine etc. Fantastic! This in the industry is what we refer to as fully dosed, meaning the actives are not simply small amounts but rather full amounts that are going to be efficacious, or produce a desired result. The ingredient list also is complete in that there are a long list of well known and well studied ingredients. The recommended dose on labelling is for one half scoop (1/2). Importantly though the nutritional information is for one full scoop (1). Thus if you want the full efficacious dose it would require one scoop. This also means the jar essentially comes in your choice of 40 regular 1/2 scoop serves or 20 fully dosed 1 scoop serves. The choice is yours.
Disorder Pre Workout Ingredients
Rather than publish the full nutritional panel lets just break it down for you covering the three main ingredient categories which are;
- Energy Production: Derived mainly from caffeine anhydrous, beta alanine, synephrine, cocoabuterol
- Pump and Vasodilation: Derived mainly from Citrulline Malate, L-Norvaline
- Nootropic Effect: Derived mainly from acetyl l-tyrosine, alpha GPC, l-theanine, macuna pruriens extract and hordenine.
- Further also added is the ingredient Pterostilbene commonly used for its anti-inflammatory anti-oxidant effects.
In a taste testing conducted by Mr Supplement staff the unanimous best flavour award went to Disorder Red Russian. We’d describe this flavour as being similar to Red Frog and truly delicious. Actually we found all the flavours to be tasty and would rank the other flavours in order of Purple Reign and Green Haze followed by Blue Pearl. Really though it’s a great tasting pre which when it comes to taste you can’t go wrong.
Disorder Pre Workout Stimulants and Caffeine
Containing the tried and tested synephrine (also known as bitter orange or citrus aurantium), the recently popular ingredient cocoabuterol and of course caffeine anhydrous, the stimulant or energy formula is non-complicated and to the point. Is it strong? You bet and with 450mg of caffeine there is not another pre workout that comes to mind with a caffeine content that exceeds Disorder. This is a whopping amount of caffeine which caters for experienced stimulant users.
In taking 1 scoop of Disorder which is what we believe most users shall ultimately use (after perhaps beginning on a 1/2 scoop). We found the energy and focus absolutely fantastic. Training legs for a 45 minute session “it’s fair to say I wanted to keep going with loads of motivation, the weights also seemed easier to lift plus recovery for the next set seemed faster”. Generally one may expect to feel pretty good on it with a positive mind set thanks to the nootropics in the formula. Pump was pretty good too although we would recommend a different pre workout if it were a crazy pump you were chasing. All up though this is a serious pre workout sure to have you fired up.
Using a high dose of caffeine anhydrous (450mg per full scoop) there is a couple of negative side effects one may experience. The first is feeling overly wired or jittery. Now this didn’t happen on our trial however for an inexperienced user it’s possible, thus again for new or inexperienced users please start with a half scoop or less. The second side effect which is more likely to happen though is a slight crash or come down when the pre workout starts wearing off. The reason for this is caffeine anhydrous peaks in your blood within 30-60 minutes, this is fast acting, then it begins to come off and does so at a reasonably fast pace. During this period it is possible to experience slight nausea or feeling some-what off. Again experienced pre workout users shall likely have no issues.
With any pre workout there is the potential for misuse. Thus being a strong formula please don’t go doing stupid doses of Disorder. Rather please always begin on the one half-scoop dose (or less) to assess your individual tolerance to the stimulant effect, then proceed higher. Always follow the manufacturers label instructions. Do this and healthy users shouldn’t have safety concerns.
When to Take Disorder
We’d recommend taking Disorder 15 minutes pre workout which is a short enough time for it to kick in whilst also lasting you a full 60 minute gym session. Should you want a good night sleep and due to the caffeine and stimulant content we’d also recommend not taking it after 6pm in the evening. That is unless you have a high tolerance to stimulants.
Disorder is a high quality pre workout that’s sure to get you up and going providing the energy, focus, mind-set & pump that’s sure to please. Should we have made any change to the formula though, it may have been the inclusion of the ingredient Dynamine in lieu of some of the caffeine anhydrous amount. Dynamine also a stimulant has been shown to support lowering the stimulant side effect, thus reducing stimulant crash. Really though and for nearly all users Disorder is a winner, it does the job, tastes great, comes with cool funky labelling and is sure to have you feeling fantastic and in the zone fast.
