Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I take this product every morning with breakfast and I love it. It isn't necessary to take it at a certain time before a workout so it's simple for someone like me who has to balance school and sports. I play collegiate baseball and football and started taking Extreme Athlete at the beginning of camp. It makes you want to keep hitting the weights after lifts because you are not as tired as you are used to being after a hard workout. Only downside is if you don't take it with food it upsets your stomach. I've found that taking it with a granola bar or something small like that in the morning cures this problem. Overall an amazing product; it gives energy as well as results.

 
Good Stuff

3rd Box
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

What I like about the extreme athlete pack is that it doesn't get you too hopped up like other sups yet gives you good motivation and energy during a workout. After the first box I was happy with the product but was concerned about getting creatine on off workout days without breaking open a vita pack, so when I got the second box I bought a bottle of Creatine 189. Now I take 2 Creatine 189's on off gym days, on gym days I take one Creatine in the morning and the rest of the pack 30-45 min pre-workout (then one of the vitamins in the morning and one in the evening.) I am seeing good results in rep weight and putting on muscle I think the extra creatine pill per day helps too.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

Started taking these a week ago. I notice an overall increase in energy throughout the day. The NO booster definitely work. I notice a pretty good pump during my workouts. I'm 6% body fat, so I could do without the X12 capsule. But, I take it anyway because the energy boost is nice. Make sure to take these after a good meal (I usually take them after lunch so it's in my system by the time I get to the gym) that way it can be fully broken down in your digestive system.

Great Suppliment

Pros:

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I started out taking the sport Vitapak and it just didnt seem to give me that extra boost I needed, but it worked pretty well. I started working out and running two to three times a day, maybe five days a week. About a week after taking the extream athlete vitapak I could really feel a big difference. I could run longer and not feel as fatigue during or after, I increase my reps and sets, lost a lot of extra fat, and felt healthy. Great product.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

Great vitapak.. Started it on month 3 of my workout routine, after starting with the Sport Vitapak, saw some gains right away. X12 definitely gets the heart pumping and sweat going, and may make you feel sick on an empty stomach. Pop the whole pack 30-45 minutes before workout for a great boost, but have to have an extra dose of creatine for the post workout as the dose in the pack is not sufficient by itself.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I am 47 and work out 4 or 5 times a week, starting off with at least 30min. of cardio. Then on to free weights for another 1hr. +.
I have been using Mega Mens Sport for a few months and felt I needed something more.
So I tried Mega Men Extreme Athlete, I bought (3) 30 day box's due to the special available at the time.
After the first 30 days I was sure I wasted my money but since I already had the stuff, I kept taking it.
After the second month I started noticing an increase in size and increased energy in my workouts. Now after 90 days, I am ordering more and am very happy with the results.
This isn't a magic drug; you still have to do the work in the gym. This just gives you that extra that makes all that work pay off.

Don't waste your money on this combo.
By hondakiller from Casper, Wy on 5/19/2010
Bottom Line:
No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

The X12 is basically caffeine. When you take caffeine and creatine at the same time, the caffeine sticks to the muscle cells and "shuts the doors" for creatine. Get the Sport pack for the morning and creatine 189 bottle for the afternoon. Or stick with caffeine which is only good for pre-workouts.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I am 23 years old and in good shape. I lift four days a week, play basketball and golf 1-3 times a week depending on my schedule.

You will get great energy for lifting weights, as long as you are the standard 1.5 minute between sets kind of guy. I usually use supersets in my workouts, and the X12 really jacks my heart rate up not something I appreciate. I have changed to standard single sets, and I have had great results. I no longer have to superset to get the same calorie burn. The first two nights I hardly slept at night, but I took the packs around noon at lunch.
Bottom line, the combo is great and a money saver, as long as you take in the morning with breakfast, you will have a good workout... and be able to sleep. This product is for the weight lifter. I would not recommend this product for the cardio-minded.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

NO's didn't gave me any pump, haven't seen any fat loss with X12, 2 months and nothing, vitamins are alright and it doesn't even have enough creatine to actually do something, you'll have to take 8 times the amount one pill of this has to see gains.

this is a great product to introduce you into the world of supplements, but if you're taking stronger stuff, you'll notice this really has no effect on you

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

Im a high school football player and have been lifting weights for about 2 years.I started taking the Extreme Athlete vitapak a few weeks ago. I take it about 30 minutes before we have our weightlifting session. It gets me pumped up. I feel energized and can push out more reps than usual. I used to take creatine pre workout, protein post workout, and a daily multivitamin in the morning. It was alot of powder to mix and worry bout drinking. This pack has it all in one. It's simple and effective.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

This is a great supplement pack! It's got everything that I need to support my diet and workout goals. I was spending upwards of $200 a month on these same types of supplements & now I'm spending less than half of that with no notice of loss of effectiveness. Plus now my gym bag doesn't sound like I'm carrying jars of jelly beans anymore. Only down side is size of pills.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I have been on my Mega Mens Extreme Athlete for nearly two weeks.... Its a amazing product I have had no problems with the tablets and I find it so effective.
The X12 in this product works a treat it has took all the fat of my body and ripped my stomach so you can see a defined 6 pack. Also on my arms you can see the definition. The energy I get from this product is great I feel so alive in the gym and just want to keep pumping the weights. The gains I am getting are so good.
This product has worked a treat me for me and I recommend it.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I started taking mega men sport last year & I loved the energy I got from it to help my work outs and playing for my baseball team. These extreme athlete are even better, I took them in the morning with my breakfast didnt notice a big difference during the day how I felt compared to the mega men sport but when I went to the gym after work I never felt so energized and ready to work out it even pushed me to double my normal cardio work out.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I took these all at once for the past 4 days in the morning with breakfast. I noticed I would get the shakes after taking the pills. I tried today to take them before lunch since I workout after work. Well..today I was really scared. About 10 minutes after I took them I started feeling hot. My ears, neck and faces were feeling really hot. I looked in the mirror and my whole head face, neck and ears were fire red. I dont know what happened but it was not a good feeling. I dont think I will take these anymore after what happened to me today. Any have any ideas why that would happen?

Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

I have begun a new plan in my life to better my health and fitness. I have never been on a diet or made any attempts to shape up.

Until recently joining a accelerated bootcamp at the request of my wife. I was very athletic and participated in everything in my youth til early 20's. My metabolism was always in motion. Within the last decade I have grown and haven't noticed much health changes. More sprains, strains, weakness, and not recovering or long recoveries. I started the Mega-Man Sport for two months in the fall, started the bootcamp in Nov.09 and wanted something more effective.

Began my first pack of Extreme Athlete Christmas/09 and I'm just finishing my second box. Since Nov.09 I've went from 29%bf to 18.5%bf and from 222lbs+/- to 199lbs currently. I feel great, I have alot of enegy, no headaches or any aches, my focus is better...everything is better and I'm happier period. Almost three months -23lbs and 11%bf!!

This Vitapak definatly makes for better workouts, more reps, power, energy, stamina, and recovery. My daily use is in the morning with breakfast, sometimes I'll save the X12 til hour before workout. But mostly all in the morning. I also cut all the pills in half for better absorbtion (not for ease of swallow). And taking this many pills will definatly get you to drink your water. Please Enjoy. Good Day.

On your non-workout days the the X12 before breakfast, the the MMS and both NO after breakfast and take the 189 anytime you want.

Comments about GNC GNC Mega Men® EXTREME ATHLETE Vitapak® Program:

Best to take an hour before the gym right after breakfast. I can feel an energy boost for sure. I work out in the evening and it helps, just not as much if I was working out an hour after breakfast. I will try to have GNC tell me what to take for evening workouts.
Not sure if my metabolism was increased by the calorie burner vitamin but definitely didn't do anything negative. I feel great and will buy again.
