Ever since trying DVST8 Black Diamond Reserve all the way back in 2015, Inspired has been one of our top rated brands. It’s continued to deliver well put together supplements over the years, especially in the pre-workout department with the various versions of DVST8 it’s released.
This month Inspired introduced DVST8 White Diamond Reserve, which is a new and improved version of the DVST8 it launched earlier this year. The brand said the product was one of its best pre-workouts to date so we knew we had to get our hands on it for a full DVST8 White Diamond Reserve review.
On paper Inspired’s latest DVST8 pre-workout is yet another loaded supplement with a maximum serving size weighing in at 24.5g. The formula includes major highlights such as a heavy 8g of citrulline, an insane 6g of betaine, 400mg of caffeine, alpha yohimbine, and the increasingly popular Dynamine.
The first thing you’ll notice with DVST8 White Diamond Reserve is that it takes a little longer to kick in than most other pre-workouts. For us, these types of supplements usually take about ten minutes or so to start being noticeable, however with Inspired’s product it was more in the area of 20 minutes.
Once DVST8 White Diamond Reserve kicks in, you’ll pretty much be at top gear through until the end of your workout. The supplement has this nice, gradual energy and focus that slowly builds to an impressive level of intensity. When you hit that high point all you’ll want to do is focus on the exercise in front of you and lift as heavy and as hard as you can.
The stimulant side of DVST8 White Diamond Reserve provides you with a relentless flow of power that is difficult to deplete. Even after you’ve pushed through a set that would usually kill you, it takes about 20 or 30 seconds and you’ll feel like going another round. The focus essentially amplifies that effect by keeping you focused on the job at hand and really encourages you to lower your rest periods and work harder.
The combination of the relentless energy and mental drive makes for a powerful experience that you will find quite addictive. The best part about DVST8 White Diamond Reserve is that even with the intensity it forces upon you, your performance won’t be affected. Despite the shorter rest periods and sometimes obvious exhaustion, you’ll find you have no trouble upping the weight or reps.
DVST8 White Diamond Reserve does also have a mild pump to it although we found it greatly depends on your style of workout. The effect isn’t strong enough to blow up your muscles even when that’s not your intention, but if you aim for higher reps and do more contraction based workouts, you will get a nice pump that feels a little denser than usual.
It is also worth mentioning that DVST8 White Diamond Reserve is best paired with an intense, taxing, or lengthy workout. We say that because the truly impressive energy is very difficult to deplete. Even on more complex workout days like chest, back or legs that would typically leave you breathless, you’ll find the pre-workout pushes you through to the finish with fuel still left in the tank.
Like with all of the versions of DVST8 before it, DVST8 White Diamond Reserve is yet another incredibly powerful, all-around pre-workout experience. It delivers an unforgettable and incomparable combination of consistently strong energy, noticeable performance enhancement, a headstrong focus, and a slightly better pump.
We found the best experience with DVST8 White Diamond Reserve comes from its maximum serving of two scoops. At lower amounts, the performance, endurance, and pumps aren’t too different, but the intense energy and mental drive do come off a bit lighter. If you give it a try, be sure to start low and work your way up as that two scoop maximum can be quite overwhelming right out of the gate.
