mri ce2 hi-defI told you all on Facebook last week that I started taking MRI’s CE2 HI-DEF, but wanted to wait a week until I wrote my first review about it. Well, it’s been a week and I’m ready to tell you all about what I have experienced so far since using it. So, here is my CE2 HI-DEF Review..

For those of you that don’t know, CE2  is creatine ethyl ester, or CEE. CEE is a newer form of creatine that is said to have the benefits of creatine monohydrate, but without the water retention or bloating. I used to use creatine monohydrate in the past, back when I was playing college baseball, but always put on a lot of water weight and never could get that ripped look I was going for, no matter what I tried. I even tried it while doing P90X about 7 months ago and had the same effects. It made me put on quite a bit of water weight, so I stopped using it. I’ve heard about a few other people using CEE and getting great results, so I decided to try it out for myself.

Like I said, I started using MRI’s CE2 about a week ago. They are in pill form, and are friggen huge! They look like horse pills. Anyways, you’re supposed to take 4 per day, 2 in the morning and 2 about an hour before the workout. They actually taste pretty good because they are coated with a raspberry flavor. The first day I started taking them I noticed a slight difference in the reps, but nothing too drastic. I also got a little nauseated, but it was odd because it was just a slight nausea, just enough to make me notice it. The next day was the exact same, and again, I noticed just a slight increase in reps. On the third day, Melinda noticed that my arms and chest were looking a little bigger, and this is from the creatine bringing water into my muscle cells. During the workout that day, I noticed that both my reps and endurance increased, so the creatine was working. So far I’m having great results using it!

That’s my one week CE2 HI-DEF review, and will probably write another review in a few weeks. In addition to the CE2, I’m also using Superpump 250, Shakeology, and the Recovery Formula, which is very important to take post-workout. Check out my P90X Recovery Drink Review!

    Sounds interesting. I may give it a try one of these days.

    How are you liking superpump 250? Better than 1.M.R.?

  2. josh, are you taking superpump or 1mr. i just remember your superpump review wasnt that good

  3. @Zack. I just started Superpump 250 and haven’t written a review on that yet. I used 1.M.R. before and loved it.

  4. 10-4. Maybe it was black powder i was thinkin of. Im a pre workout supp junkie so i like checkin your opinions. Have you heard anything positive about controlles labs purple wrath.

  5. Sorry its called white flood

    Josh are you still getting nausea? And is it available on beach body or where did you purchase it?

  8. @Jesus. The nausea has pretty much gone away. I purchased it at Vitamin Shoppe. It’s not available through Beachbody.

  9. @Braden. I’m not nearly feeling the effect with Superpump 250 that I do with 1.M.R. So far it’s not one that I would recommend.

  10. Hey Josh was just wondering what your diet looked like while you are taking this? Is is the fat burner (20fat/30carb/50prtn) or the mass gain(20fat/50carb/30prtn) so to speak?

  11. @Jason. My diet is constantly changing according to my goals. Right now I’m focused on a low-carb diet to get really cut.

    Hey Josh,

    I have been taking 1.m.r for a month and just ordered my second bottle. I know for alot of preworkout supplements you should take them for a period of time and then off for a period of time. I really like 1.m.r and the pumps that I get from it. Is it bad to not take the breaks from preworkouts and just take them regularly like you would do with postworkout??

    I think after I am out of the Amplified 189 formula (GNC) I will stop my cycle for a week or two and start with CE2. Apm 189 works great, but I think I would like to try something different also.

  14. @Ryan. Yeah, you need to always cycle off pre-workout supplements. I usually take it for two months and then I’m off for a month.

  15. So what’s your final verdict on CE2? I’m thinking of giving it a shot but wanted to see what you thought after trying it for a while.

  16. @Ryan. I actually stopped taking CE2 only after taking it for a short while because my goals shifted from gaining mass to leaning out again because of a Beachbody Event that was coming up at the time, so I couldn’t formulate an accurate review.
