So chug away before you lift with the brand new, completely overhauled Shock Therapy. Only from Universal. Why did Universal Nutrition change Shock Therapy? The old Shock Therapy was a venerable pre-workout that was launched several years ago. Then, as now, it was a full-feature, comprehensive pre-workout pump and energy product. However, today, the product could be made better in every aspect, from the formula to the flavour. Flavouring systems, and the ability to produce great-tasting products, have improved tremendously in those years. Universal Nutrition wanted to bring to bear these new technologies into an all-new and completely revamped formula for die-hard lifters. How is this different from the old version of Shock Therapy? This is an all-new, overhauled formula and completely redesigned flavouring system. This is not a simple facelift or update. Newer cutting-edge and patented ingredients were added to make this a more powerful and complete pre-workout product. What you'll notice immediately, as you take the new Shock Therapy, is the amazing new flavours. Unlike other pre-workouts on the market, this new formula is delicious–something that you can sip slowly and savour. What makes Shock Therapy different from other pre-workouts? Shock Therapy is a complete and comprehensive all-in-one. There is no need to buy a separate creatine, BCAA, "pump", energy/drive, antioxidant, performance and endurance supplement. They are all provided for in Shock Therapy in a scientifically suggested and delicious package. Does Shock Therapy have a full daily dose of creatine? Yes. When you take Shock Therapy, you do not need additional creatine that day. What is the difference between Shock Therapy and Animal Pump or Animal Rage? Animal Pump is a strict pump product with mild stims. Animal Rage is a concentrated pre-workout for promoting intense energy and focus. Animal Rage does not contain creatine or "pump" ingredients, while Shock Therapy does. Think of Animal Rage as a PR in a can, great for max effort workouts and or powerlifting meets. Shock Therapy is better suited for general lifters and bodybuilders who value the pump and maximizing muscle size and shape. Essentially, stacking Animal Pump and Rage would be comparable overall to Shock Therapy. How much caffeine is in Shock Therapy? Shock Therapy contains caffeine anhydrous and other natural sources of caffeine. Each scoop is the equivalent of roughly two strong cups of coffee. For two scoops, twice that amount. Should I take one or two scoops of Shock Therapy? This is a highly individualized question based on various factors such as bodyweight, personal stimulant tolerance, experience, etc. Universal Nutrition recommend one scoop for those that are under 200 lb. and two scoops for those over 200 lb. (or if you have a high stimulant tolerance). As always, initially start with a lower dose to assess your own personal tolerance. If you have never used a pre-workout before, you may even need to start with ½ scoop.
