EAS Phos Force Review

If you have struggled to get through intense weight training sessions then you may have no doubt looked into supplements as a way to help make your workouts more successful.   If you have looked at EAS Phos Force, but have been hesitant to buy it then this review is for you.

Phos Force is a pre-workout weight training supplement designed to give anyone who seeks energy a needed boost.  It contains 5.25 grams of creatine, 34 grams of carbs (needed for a proper creatine reaction in the body),  1.6 grams of CarnoSyn, 50 milligrams of magnesium and 100 milligrams of caffeine. I am always skeptical of any supplements but I thought I would give it a try.  First, the product comes, as far as I know, only in a thirty day supply in either fruit punch or orange flavor.  I opted for the fruit punch flavor mostly because it was on sale.

The instructions say to take an eight ounce dose about 30 to 60 minutes before your workout.  Since I workout at 5:00 am I did not have time to take it a full 30 minutes prior to my workout.  Instead I took it about fifteen minutes before my workout.  So my experiences are based on that change in the prescription.

The taste of the drink is palatable, but does have a little bit of an off flavor compared to say a glass of Koolaid.  I assume this is the active ingredients which cannot be masked completely by flavorings, but I think Abbott did a fine job with the flavor.   The powder needs to be mixed quickly, if you let it set without mixing even for a minute, the powder will crystallize in the bottom causing major headaches.  Just remember to put the water in your mix bottle then the powder and mix quickly.  Ok so let's move on to what really works or does not work with this supplement.

About 15 minutes after taking Phos Force  I felt the caffeine hit my system.  This is about the time I was doing the chest press.  The caffeine did its job by easily allowing me to finish 10 reps of 210lbs and the next two sets.  So my initial reaction is a positive one to the caffeine.  For me, at age 39, the caffeine is a good boost this early in the morning.

At about 30 minutes there was indeed a second boost of energy.  I do not  know if this was the creatine or the CarnoSyn, but there was something clearly happening.  I was able to get through 3 sets of preacher curls, 3 sets of incline dumbbell curls and 3 sets of seated curls without a huge amount of muscle fatigue.  I will tell you that this has not been the case in the past.  I could not get through that many sets for the same muscle group without significant muscle fatigue.  As an added benefit the caffeine also helps with cardio which I do directly after my weight training.

In conclusion, I have been taking the product for about two weeks and it does work.  Don't expect miracles here as it is just a supplement  but I do recommend it to anyone seeking to build muscle.  It is important to also note that with some individuals, creatine does not work as it does in others.  Even without the creatine, there are other benefits with the powder.  For example it does have CarnoSyn which is stated to give more muscle stamina and it has magnesium which more and more is known as a good muscle builder.  Give it a try and see what you think.  Let me know how it does for you.


  1. This is my second tube of Phos force and it doesn't have any side effects such as nausea, question is, is it ok for me to blend the powder to make it more finer?

    1. That is an excellent question and I have noticed it is a bit grainy. I can't imagine it making it not work as well but who knows. Maybe you can contact customer service.

      I am really starting to become of fan of EAS though.
