Have you heard of 1 MR? Wondering if this pre-workout formula lives up to the hype? Today we find out.
A lot of different pre-workout supplements promise a bunch of different things – excellent recovery, amazing strength, different levels of effectiveness. It’s hard to get through all the various promises and claims.
1 MR (aka 1 More Rep) is another pre-workout supplement – but it doesn’t get lost in the sea of supplements. Rather, it stands out on its own. With its specialized patented formula, this product claims to take your pre-workout to a whole new level.
So of course, we had to find out for ourselves. We want to see what other people had to say about it, and see what kind of ingredients it has, not to mention the potency of these ingredients.
Plus, we want to see how it matches up to various other supplements in the same category to get a feel for which one is the right choice for you. 1 MR promises to give you the best performance of your life and power to get through a mega workout with a specialized Nitric Oxide formula.
Right before you go to the gym, you mix 1 MR with about 4 to 6 ounces of water. What it does – give you an extreme amount of energy so you can power through your workout and still have enough gas left to do it again the next day.
1 MR Ingredients
What could possibly be in it to make it so powerful?
The first thing that we discovered was that it contains about 100 mg of caffeine. That’s a pretty hefty dose, but a standard ingredient for pre-workout supps. To put that in perspective, that’s about 2 tall cups of coffee. Plus, it has about 46 mg of Niacin. Some of the users commented that this left them flushed with red skin during their workout and this ingredient would explain why.
As for the rest of the ingredients, that includes things like Grape Seed Extract, Red Wine Extract, L-Lysine, L-Arginine AKG, Guarana, and L-Taurine. Both of these last two ingredients are herbal stimulants that are fairly commonly used. You’ll often see these in energy drinks and other pre-workout formulas. In fact, most of these ingredients are common with pre-workout supplements. However, 1 MR is one of few supplements that offers all of them in one convenient spot.
1 MR Reviews
Let’s get to the reviews. A majority of users who reviewed the product had nothing but positive things to say about 1 MR. There were a few complaints and they were all based around the same area. Like many post-workout supplements, many users complained they felt jittery during and after their workout. This is easily explained – because there’s 100 mg of caffeine in it, you’re going to feel a little shaky.
Tip: if caffeine jitters make you uncomfortable, you might want to try a pre-workout without it.
Depending on your caffeine tolerance, you may find yourself having different results. If you have a couple of cups of coffee a day, and you have a higher tolerance, it’s like you aren’t going to feel the effects of the caffeine as much. However, if you aren’t much of a coffee drinker and you drink a cup or less a day, you might find yourself dealing with the jittery feeling a bit more than others when you take 1 MR, or any other pre-workout.
Besides that, there are only a few other complaints about 1 MR. For some, the taste was a deal breaker. It’s reported that it wasn’t a very good taste, which warded off people from wanting to drink it.
Another down side was the crash that came a few hours later. Similar to the crash that comes with downing a lot of coffee, you’re probably going to have a crash with this one too. A few hours after your gym session, you’re going to get the dreaded crash. This means you’re going to be exhausted and not wanting to do anything.
The way around this, as we have found with pre-workout supplements is to make sure you work off all that caffeine before you exit the gym. Get it all filtered out and you won’t be left feeling jittery or crashing after taking 1 MR.
One reviewer compared 1 MR to Jack3D. He reported that while it gives you killer energy for your pumps. The crash that comes later in the day is absolutely insane and is a deal breaker for some. This guy also compared the taste of 1 MR to cough medicine – not exactly the best motivation for trying this pre-workout supplement. So as it usually goes with products, you can’t please everyone.
Another user stated that the best part about this product is the way it gets you amped up and ready to workout. This user said he’s never taken anything this powerful. A major perk this one pointed out was the fact that you don’t build up a tolerance to the supplement, like other products. Again, this guy commented on the taste of 1 MR but did point out that it was only a little bit you had to tolerate. However, he did notice he had a hard time falling asleep if he took 1 MR too late in the day. This can be easily solved by taking the supplement earlier in the morning or mid-afternoon to avoid any sleep issues.
Essentially any negative comments that we’ve found about 1 MR are related to its caffeine content. This should sort of be a no-brainer when it comes to pre-workout formulas. Don’t take pre-workout if you don’t handle caffeine well; simple solution.
Where to Buy 1 MR
Another perk is this is a pretty available product – you can get it from places like the Vitamin Shoppe for $35.99. If that’s a little out of your price range, you can try SupplementWarehouse.com and you’ll be able to find it for about $27.95. Added bonus – if you go through them to purchase it, you’ll get a free gym bag with your order. Of course, you can always turn to Amazon where you can grab a supply for about 26 bucks. Both of these suppliers have equally positive reviews about the products as well.
So how does 1 MR stand up against Jack3D, like some of the users compared it against? Well….it doesn’t really seem like there’s much of a difference. Some guys liked the taste of 1 MR, others absolutely hate it. Some prefer Jack3D and others don’t.
As far as ingredients, they’re both a safe route.
The one thing that we did find with the two supplements was that they both left users feeling pretty jittery, much like you drank too much coffee. While this feeling can be uncomfortable, it isn’t exactly painful or a deal breaker. If you’re looking from a price standpoint, Jack3D is about $10 cheaper than 1 MR, so that’s something you’ll want to consider.
All in all, we think 1 MR is a pretty good product, based on the testimonials alone. It gives you the gym performance it promises and there aren’t really any huge side effects. Because a few users complained about having trouble sleeping after taking it, we suggest not taking it 8 hours before you go to sleep. Otherwise, this falls under our classification of safe and effective supplements; we give 1 MR 4-stars.
