obra Labs has a pre-workout called The Curse. The Curse comes in a few different flavors like blue raspberry, green apple, lemon, etc. I have taken this product for about a month and I have formed my own opinion on it. When I look for a pre-workout I look at 3 things. Effectiveness- how much it helps your workout. Taste- the flavor and how “natural” it tastes. Pretty much how much you enjoy drinking it. Side effects- does it give a head ache or stomach pain? I did my ratings on a scale of 1-5.
I’ve used this product at different times of the day and every time it has had the same effect. It gets you pumped up and gets the blood flowing. The Curse takes about 15-20 minutes to set in and that is when you start feeling the energy. I get to the gym about 6:00am every morning and I feel like it is noon by the time The Curse kicks in. I’m wide awake and ready to go. It also helps me push though my workout. The Curse has helped me lift more weight and do more exercises.
The taste is probably as smooth as you are going to find in any pre-workout. It dissolves well in the water, which allows The Curse to be much easier to drink. If you follow the recommended dosages for mixing, it tastes like a regular sports drink. It’s not too sweet, which is a big problem with some pre-workouts. Some pre-workouts are so sweet that they are impossible to drink, but not The Curse.
There are no side-effects with The Curse. I’m pretty sensitive when it comes to getting headaches or having stomach problems from pre-workout. I have never had a problem at any point during or after my workout where I received side-effects.
The Curse is the best pre-workout I’ve ever taken. I am making progress in my fitness that I have never reached before. I enjoy drinking it. And best of all NO SIDE-EFFECTS! It gets the job done. It puts you in the right position physically and mentally to workout to your full potential. I highly recommend this product (especially the blue raspberry flavor)!
