There are a lot of pre-workout supplements that are masked with bullshit proprietary blends. Its also getting harder to find one that isn’t loaded with cheap ingredients like maltodextrin.  Here is a list of the Pre-workouts Ive tried that I consider beyond excellent and worth your hard earned money.

Blackstone Labs Dust V2

Dust Pre-workout Link

Okay, so this is hands down the best tasting pre-workout I  have ever used. This is the third incarnation of their classic Angel Dust formula due to FDA restrictions. This pre-workout does all the things it should but it stands out with having nootropics rather than a ton of stimulants. The result is a sharper focus rather than the traditional jittery caffeine high. There is no crash I actually feel really good through out the day after taking this.

Beast Mode Black

Beast Mode Pre-workout Link

Beast Mode Black is the most extreme pre-workout I have ever used. Do not even take this product If you are stimulant sensitive in any way. This is a superior pre-workout that contains a stupid high amount of caffeine (400 mg). It also has 75 mg of Tacrine, Yohimbe, DMAE, Agmatine, Beta-Alanine, and even more shit.

I can’t stress enough that this  is intended for serious athletes who want really intense and extreme products.

Primeval Labs Adrenal Rush V2

Adrenal Rush V2 Pre-workout Link

I knew their anabolic were great, however I was skeptical of their pre-workout because the original not only tasted like shit but gave me the shits. Primeval made some serious changes and absolutely killed it this time! The biggest change was that they ditched the proprietary blend. And they now have a  fully disclosed ingredient label which reveals a clinically dosed product. This is a great middle of the road pre-workout with just the right amount of stimulants but also gives a decent pump.

The energy hits your system fast which is a big plus for people that workout early in the morning. Within a few minutes, I get the tingling sensation from the Beta-Alanine, allowing me to push my workout to the limit. The energy is very clean and provides laser sharp focus. But best of all, this product does not give me the screaming shits 10 minutes after I take it.


Nutria Outfit Pre-Workout

Outlift Pre-workout Link

As far as ingredient profiles go, this is the best you will ever find. This pre-workout powerhouse contains 10 fully clinically dosed performance enhancers. Its got the perfect amount of every compound and provides results you can feel.  The only downside  is that you only get 20 servings with it. However, the container is much larger, you get a lot more of the products that actually work, and YOU WONT NEED MORE THAN ONE SCOOP! If it did have 30 servings, I think that it would turn away some consumers due to a higher price point.

If you have ever used JYM, this is a similar product. But in my opinion has a much better taste. It is based on solid science, full doses disclosed, and no proprietary blends.

Blackstone Labs Hype (Stim-Free Pre-workout)

Hype Pre-workout Link
HYPE is a stimulant free nitric oxide supplement allows for extended pumps.  This is great for anyone who doesn’t want to use a lot of stimulants.  It also good for lifters who have to workout at night and don’t want problems falling asleep. I actually like throwing in a scoop of this with my normal pre-workout when I have a big arm day and I really want to get swoll up. The pumps I get with this usually last about 3 hours after my workout.


Death Wish Coffee

Death Wish Coffee Link

This is the best coffee I have ever had. In a 12-ounce cup of coffee, there is an average of 650 milligrams of caffeine. This organic coffee has four times the amount of caffeine than other brands of coffee and is not for the faint of heart. Even though this isn’t a pre-workout, I often use this instead because I love coffee and   it definitely gives me a clean rush of energy.
