Max's Shok Shot Review

Max's Shok Shot ReviewDividerimage

Powerful product Max's Shok Shot is created by Aminoactive Australia, a company established in Melbourne back in 1989. Its founding duo represents the ideal marriage of sport and science. Keith Ellis was a champion bodybuilder during the 1970s and 1980s, while his partner, Paul Kirkham, is an expert in biochemistry who specialises in sports nutrition. The company is entirely Australian owned and operated.

Max's Shok Shot is a pre-workout supplement designed to boost energy and endurance, promote lean muscle growth and ease the stress caused during the recovery period.

Shok Shot performs three important functions. Firstly, it helps to reduce the impact of lactic acid, which builds up during intense training sessions, causing pain, exhaustion and, ultimately, decreasing an athlete's workout capacity. Secondly, it contains an energy-boosting complex, which promotes alertness and focus. Finally, there are ingredients that optimise blood flow, thereby maximising the delivery of all-important nutrients. 

Ingredients and dosage

As a pre-workout supplement, Max's Shok Shot should be taken fifteen minutes before a training session. Every 378g container provides 18 x 21g serves. It's recommended that 21g of powder be mixed with 60ml of water. Each serving delivers 7.2g of protein, 6.6g of carbohydrates, and a complex mix of other ingredients. Key players include lactic acid buffers citrullene malate, beta alanine and l-histidine; energy stimulators guarana, l-tyrosine, tri-creatine malate, l-glutamine and BCAAs; and blood flow promoters arginine alphaketo glutarate and taurine.

Pros and efficacy

Max’s Shok Shot delivers immediate results, in the sense that any athlete should feel a sudden boost of energy after taking it. From the get-go, it delivers just what the label promises – a welcome increase in focus and stamina, resulting in an all-round better workout. Max’s Shok Shot delivers a good muscle pump and muscle volume. It enables you to maximise every rep so you will also see increases in lean muscle mass with continued use.


If your a stimulant junkie, Max’s Shok Shot is probably not for you. This provides all the ingredients to give you a great functional workout (not to hammer your adrenals). Not really a con if your serious trainer.

Taste and mixability

Max’s Shok Shot mixes quickly and easily. The taste isn’t as carefully formulated as those of other beverages, but it definitely passes, and given that the average dose is just 60ml, this doesn’t matter too much.


As a convenient yet efficacious pre-workout shot, Max’s Shok Shot is worth more than just a passing glance. Max's has done it again with a product that gives what it promises.
