Since Spike has been out for some time now, I’d like to get some feedback from those of you that have given it an extended test drive. Specifically, a subjective epitome of the good, bad and ugly on what you’ve experienced in terms of performance enhancement (cognitive/physical), negatives (hangover, crash), etc…
Do you use it everyday or just on occasion? If just on occassion, why? Any specific anecdotes would be great.
I have used it since it was introduced and the tablet form kicks in much quicker than the caps did. I have not used the caffeine-free tabs yet, but it is a great all-round booster of energy and mood. I use it mostly at the end of the workday when I have to watch the kids late, and sometimes during the day if needed. I love it, one tab and I’m good to go for hours. I personally find I need more than one tab for lifting, but one does the trick for everything else. I did feel a bit of a tolerance when I took it daily for a while, but I think that may have been from the caffeine, I am really looking forward to trying the caffeine-free version, both when I need it and for workouts (when I start lifting again). I think I’ll try one of each for training, I’ve a hunch that will work out great.
