What You Should Know
Stampede is a pre-workout shake mix designed to increase energy and vasodilation during a workout. The shake must be taken about 30 minutes before hitting the gym. This gives the active ingredients time to work. Stampede, formulated by Anabolic Designs, includes ingredients to promote muscle hydration, energy and recovery.
Dieters do not need a pre-workout shake of this caliber. Water is ideal during regular aerobic exercise. The ingredients in this formula are designed to facilitate muscle growth during weight training and, as such, some ingredients promote weight gain, not weight loss. Creatine, one of the active ingredients in the Endurorep Matrix, causes water retention that may last well beyond the time athletes take the supplement. Typically, diuretics are used after the bulking phase to eliminate water retention.

Electro-Vit adds vitamins and electrolytes. Creatine causes water retention in the muscle, which can cause an electrolyte imbalance. If elecrolytes are left out of balance, muscle cramping may occur. Intense exercise may also lead to electrolyte imbalance.
Amino Prime is a collection of amino acids. This portion of Stampede is not necessarily a selling point because most protein powders contain amino acids.
Neuro Zone contains caffeine, a stimulant proven to increase metabolism and weight loss. Caffeine is included in a proprietary blend, so we have no idea how much caffeine is actually included.
Endurorep will cause weight gain because it contains creatine. Not all dieters or athletes need creatine and creatine will not promote weight loss.

- May cause water retention and weight gain.
Stampede is a strong pre-workout shake, but it contains ingredients that the average dieter does not need. We are sure this formula will cause water retention and it make cause muscle cramping, but we are not convinced this supplement is any better than the hundred other pre-workout shakes on the market
