Lit Pre-Workout


The Lit pre-work does as the title and packaging entails – it lights you up completely. After taking this you’ll feel like you can bench press an elephant, although I wouldn’t recommend it. It kicks in rapidly and will definitely give you a surge of energy and focus, however, not without making your face itch and entire body tingle for the entirety of the effects’ duration.

Whilst this doesn’t necessarily put you off from your workout, and you may actually enjoy the tingly feeling that come with it, some people may not be sold on the effects. There are four different flavors to choose from (and the gummy worm flavor tastes exactly like gummy worms).

VINTAGE BLAST Pre Workout


Quality product and decently sized, too. This one provides a great boost of energy and focus, without a big crash afterwards. No ill side effects such a sudden total body itch, or having your face feeling like it’s on fire. The Vintage Blast pre-workout contains 0 calories, and has been sweetened with stevia.

The Blueberry lemonade taste is rather pleasant and sufficiently sweet; not too strong to the point of it being bitter tasting.

Legion Pulse Pre Workout


One of the current best sellers, the Legion Pulse pre-workout has a slightly steeper price than most of the other products, and for a good reason. Many of the other pre-workouts you will try contain a large quantity of caffeine, this will make it hit hard and fast, but will also cause you to crash afterwards, as the effects wear out suddenly. With this one the transition is smoother, and doesn’t leave you almost feeling depressed after your workout.

The quantity of powder in the container is also a great deal for your money, as well as the taste (you can choose between seven different tastes) . Even if it tasted like crap, it would probably still be one of the better pre-workouts out there.

Dark Mountain – Kodiak Pre-Workout


An effective pre workout. The Dark Mountain Kodiak works well whether you are using it in the gym, or to hike and climb through mountains. The energy it delivers is smooth, and by that I mean that you won’t feel jittery, itchy, or witness a huge crash when the effects wear off. It’s clean, sustained energy.

The taste is alright, not too sweet, doesn’t feel like your are drinking mushed up cardboard, and the powder mixes well. Altogether, we couldn’t find anything negative to say about this one.

Signature Pre Workout


No crash or jitters from this one, and it will give you a nice pump and enhanced focus, for those heavy sets and reps. You really don’t need to take more than one scoop here, as you’ll notice that it already gets the job done really well with a 200 mg of caffeine serving. The ingredients are quality, and it gets the job done.

There are seven different flavors to choose from so you can give them a go and see which one tastes better to you. Overall, this is a well priced supplement with satisfactory results.

FURIOUS FORMULATIONS Goku Gains Pre-Workout


Some people here may be familiar with the Youtube athlete “Furious Pete”, and his Furious Formulations pre workout blend. The ingredients were hand selected by him, and clinically dosed to provide serious trainees, with the energy and focus needed to complete that last set of heavy squats, or weighted pull ups.

The pre workout works rather well, and for some, only half a scoop may suffice. The flavor however, really isn’t the best.This may change for each individual, as everyone has their own preferences.

Beef Monkey Pre-Workout


Beef Monkey will also provide you with a decent crash and shakes free boost to your energy, focus, and endurance. You may get a slight tingle from this one, personally it has never been a problem, but for some it may be different.

Mix it with some water 30 minutes before your workout and you are good to go. The main flavor is Acai berry.

Beet Natural 


The beet flavor taste is a bit hard to get use to, and really does taste like beets, but at least you are using a more natural sort of ingredient, and what you put into your body matters. You’ll have a decent energy boost without the jitters and the comedown crash, but you won’t be tingling as hard as you would be with other products.

Your energy levels won’t be raised to extreme levels with this one, but the ingredients are definitely cleaner.

Nutrex Research Outlift 


Be ready to feel a giant surge of lasting, focused energy with the blackberry lemonade flavored Outlift. Like most other products in this review, the effects transition smoothly and you won’t feel like your heart is beating out of your chest, or your face is on fire. Within a short time of having drank a single scoop, you’ll be focused like never before (unless you regularly take massive doses of caffeine).

Even after your workout you should still have some energy to spare, to get on with your day. The taste is not overbearing, and its easy to mix and drink.One of the main ingredients is Creatine, which means you won’t have to buy it separately, and will further add to that energy/endurance and pump boost.

Alpha Gx7 Pre Workout


The Alpha Gx7 bears a complicated name, but the pros largely outweigh the cons. First of all, this will give you a nice surge of energy, no doubt about that. You’ll feel elevated, have a nice pump throughout your workout, and have a lot of energy to spare. The con is that due to the Beta-Alanine, if you are new to this pre workout or any pre workout containing this safe ingredient, you’ll feel some tingling in your body. This will go away after a week or two as you get used to it though.

As far as flavors go, you can choose between watermelon, fruit punch, and cherry, and taste pretty good in general, with the level of sweetness depending on how much water you mix it with.

MusclePharm Assault Pre-Workout


The MP assault is much cheaper than most brands at almost half the price, and will definitely give you a workout boost. With its 250mg of caffeine doseage, you’ll have a sharper mental focus to attack your sets with. You won’t feel any tingle or super-pump sensation as they have removed the Niacin (the ingredients that causes these affects).

Tha label is a bit more explicit and transparent in it’s ingredients too, which is great as most people like to know what they are putting into their body. The taste is mostly akright, although sometimes it tastes a bit more medicine than anything else. An overall very reasonably priced product without the junk ingredients.

MuscleTech Shatter SX-7 Black Onyx 


Once you have assessed your tolerance and start using two scoops, this pre workout will absolutely kick your buitt straight into the gym. All the right ingredients are there and have been clinically dosed for optimate performances.

With the combination of Beta-alanine, taurine, L-citrulline, and caffeine, you’ll feel a solid bump in your energy and have all the needed focus to shred through your workout. You have two, different flavors to choose from, and the rasberry one is rather refreshing and quite tasty.

AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout


If you have had a tiring day and need some energy to jump into your workout, this thing will make you feel like you are on crack. This is an intense pre workout that will send your energy and focus levels through the roof, but unfortunately, also pull you back just as fast with a big crash.

Manage your scoops sensibly and go slowly, as the difference is massive.

How does it work?


You will generally find three main ingredients in your pre workout. First, you have caffeine, that will provide you with the needed energy boost as well as act as a stimulant, also lowering your perceived rate of exertion, increasing fat burning, and improves your overall focus. As well as aiding with recovery, some indirect benefits may be weight loss, and an increased level of performance.

Next up on the list of ingredients are Beta- alanine and other Branched-chain amino acids. These allow you to train longer and harder due to reduced muscle fatigue, and help you with protein synthesis as well as recovery.


Benefits of pre-workout


One of the primary and most obvious benefits is the huge and constant surge of energy you will receive due to the caffeine. You will feel stimulated, energized, and ready to power through your workout, even after long work days.

You will greatly improve your ability to train harder and more efficiently, with the added benefit of burning more fat due to the caffeine content, (caffeine raises body thermogenesis and fat oxidation, boosts metabolism, and delays the onset of hunger).
