On my visit to the Toronto Pro Supershow I was lucky enough to get many samples of current products to try. Thankfully, when I visited the Muscletech booth I was handed several samples to try out! This pre-workout, Nano Vapor, is one I was curious about because it isn’t available to Canada yet from my favourite supplement retailer: bodybuilding.com. It seems to have been available since 2012, but I guess the Canadian market is one of lower demand so products may take a bit longer to saturate it.

![Rivalus Powder Burn lime]/img/2014/05/rivalus-powder-burn-lime.jpg) For today’s workout I decided to give this pre-workout another chance, as the first time I tried it, I could barely notice any effect.

It does contain several excellent additives, most notable for me is the use of Citrulline Malate instead of simply using L-Arginine. This is a new trend which I hope some of the other large companies follow.
