Today, we do a deep dive on Stim Lord Fully Loaded, which is a pre-workout from Anabolic Warfare. Stim Lord is meant to be a hard hitting pre-workout, that can help with energy, pumps, endurance, and fat loss. It has a wide range of ingredients, and at a glance looks very impressive.
Let's take a closer look at see what we are dealing with here, and give you our initial thoughts as well as a flavor review at the end.
Citrulline Malate – 6g
The first ingredient in Stim Lord Fully Loaded is Citrulline Malate. Citrulline is a very common ingredient in pre-workouts, and next to caffeine is the most common. Citrulline converts to Arginine, which is a precursor to Nitric Oxide.
At 6 grams, it is dosed well in Stim Lord.
Beta-Alanine – 3.2g
Beta-Alanine is another staple in pre-workouts, and for good reason. It has a lot of evidence showing it to be great for endurance. An easy way to put it is that it buffers lactic acid. Behind Creatine, it is one of the more well-studied ingredients in supplements.
At 3.2 grams, it is dosed well.
HydroMax™ – 2g
HydroMax™ is a trademarked form of Glycerol Monostearate, which is a very popular ingredient in pump products. It also works a bit differently from traditional pump ingredients as well. Where many ingredients focus on vasodilation/vasorelaxation, Glycerol Monostearate works by muscular hydration. It has been shown to help with aerobic and anaerobic performance.
Anabolic warfare uses HydroMax™, A high quality form of GMS.
You’re getting 2 grams of Hydromax™, which is a solid dose.
Betaine Anhydrous – 2g
Betaine Anhydrous is a nice addition to Stim Lord, and it makes sense to see it in here. Betaine Anhydrous can help with power output, and is almost as common as Beta-Alanine and Citrulline in pre-workouts these days.
At 2 grams, it is dosed well.
Tyrosine – 1g
Tyrosine is a very common ingredient in pre-workouts and Nootropics. It is a precursor to Dopamine as well as other neurotransmitters in the brain, and can help with focus under stressful situations.
At 1 gram, it is dosed well in Stim Lord.
Nitrosigine® – 500mg
Nitrosigine® is one of our favorite ingredients here on FI. It is a patented ingredient from Nutrition21®, and has been shown to be better than Citrulline at including pumps.
We like to see this at 1.5 grams, and unfortunately, Stim Lord only has 500mg.
Caffeine Anhydrous – 400mg
We all know what Caffeine is and does. Caffeine helps with energy and is easily the most common ingredient in pre-workouts.
You get 400mg in Stim Lord. This is somewhat on the higher side, however Caffeine is a very personal ingredient, and how well it is dosed depends on your tolerance.
Alpha-GPC – 250mg
Alpha-GPC is a great addition to this pre-workout. It is a high quality form of Choline and has a high bioavailability. Choline converts to Acetylcholine in the brain, which is a neurotransmitter. It is one of the first ingredients people recommend as a Nootropic.
We usually like to see it at 300mg-600mg. You get 250mg in here, and while slightly under what we like to see, should provide some benefit.
Dynamine 40% – 150mg
Dynamine is an ingredient from Compound Solutions, and is gaining in popularity in pre-workouts and Nootropics, and to put it simply, it helps with clean energy. It is similar to TeaCrine®, another energy booster from Compound Solutions. While TeaCrine helps with long-lasting energy and helps prevent a crash, Dynamine kicks in much faster and really puts you in tune with your body as you workout.
At 60mg yield, you are getting a solid dose.
GBB – 40mg
GBB is a very fun ingredient, and honestly it will add to the experience if nothing else. It is common in fat burners, as it may help your body increase Carnitine levels. The reason people like it so much is because it has this fun side effect that simply makes you sweat. Even if you’re sitting there doing nothing, you may notice some beads of sweat building up on your forehead.
At 40mg, it is dosed well.
KannaEase™ – 25mg
Finally we come to KannaEase™. This is an ingredient used to reduce anxiety in supplements, and can be very beneficial for people that want a lot of energy yet may want to avoid some of the anxiety that comes with high doses of stimulants.
A study showed Kanna being beneficial for cognitive flexibility. The study was a double-blind/placebo controlled, done over 4 weeks. The subjects in this study also reported better sleep quality, however more research needs to be done on this before it can be recommended as a sleep aid.
At 25mg, it is at the clinical dose.
Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzine A) – 10mg
Toothed Clubmoss is a source of Huperzine A, which is a Nootropic ingredient. Huyperzine is an Acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, which means it prevents Choline from being broken down in the brain.
At 10mg at a 1% standardization, it is dosed well in Stim Lord.
Yohimbine HCl – 2mg
Yohimbine is the final ingredient in Stim Lord, and this will certainly help people “feel” it, especially if 400mg isn’t enough for them. It can help with blood flow, energy, as well as fat loss. It is an ingredient that some may like and other will dislike, as a common side effect is anxiety and jitters. Certainly an ingredient the stim-junkies will love.
At 2mg, it is dosed well, however how you react will depend on your tolerance.
Well we got to try this out for ourselves, and while not an official review, we have to say that this one hits hard, and the flavor is MONEY, and probably one of the top Miami Vice flavors on the market. The flavor is refreshing, with just the right amount of sweetness added to it. It is also not overpowering.
For people who want a pre-workout that reminds them of laying on the beach while sipping on a nice refreshing cocktail... this is a great option.
