Jay Cutler’s recently released series of supplements is one of the most exciting moves in the industry for 2013. With a good range of supplements covering almost all the categories of sports supplements, one of the more anticipated out of the range would have to be the pre-workout known as Jay Cutler Legend. Let’s take a closer look at what ingredients are in Legend and just how effective the 4 time Mr Olympia’s new pre-workout is.

Jay Cutler Legend Pros & Effectiveness
Jay Cutler Elite Series Legend definitely has the workings of a great supplement. Legend offers a strong dose of energy thanks to their three potent stimulants including caffeine, guarana and dendrobium. The pre-workout also provides an excellent range of ingredients to support exercise endurance and assisting with decreased fatigue including taurine (which works well in conjunction with caffeine), beta-alanine, L-carnitine Tartrate, tyrosine, psoralea and pagoda tree providing the excellent flavonoid quercetin. If energy, intensity and endurance are major areas that you want improved for your workouts, then Legend is an ideal choice.
Jay Cutler Legend Cons
Legends primary pitfall is its lack of pump. With two fairly average pump ingredients; Jay Cutler’s Legend just doesn’t cut the mustard when compared to more established pre-workouts such as Cellucor C4 or MusclePharm Assault. While creatine is by far one of the most effective and important ingredients to support exercise performance and results, such low levels used in Legend won’t really be doing anything.
Jay Cutler Legend Taste & Mixability
Jay Cutler’s Legend is currently available in 2 flavours; Fruit Punch and Blue Raspberry. One of the better tasting pre-workouts on the market, Legend mixes well with little residue or gritty-ness and has very little aftertaste, making it pre-workout drink you can either sip slowly or scull. The Fruit Punch flavour isn’t the best, but it never really is.
Jay Cutler Legend Verdict
Jay Cutler’s flagship pre-workout Legend has been well received since its release with users noticeably pleased by the supplements ability to support good increases in energy, endurance, focus and intensity. While the pump and the ingredients dosing are definitely areas to improve, for beginner to intermediate trainers, Legend will definitely do the trick and offer you a great boost to your current workout capacity. For more advanced users, it may be wise to stack it with another specifically designed pump supplement such as Elemental Nutrition Pre-Workout.
