pre workout supplements

If you are serious about working out, seeing results, and being in the best shape you can possibly be in, then a pre-workout supplement is a definite must. Even if you are motivated and focused naturally, pre workouts can take you to the next level.

Good pre workout supplements work to boost your mental focus, energize your body, and stimulate intense drive that can only be described as workout rage. Additional benefits can be decreased fatigue, increased endurance, increased strength, and improved nutrient assimilation within the body. Thats a lot of benefits!

The following listing is our top 10 ratings of the best pre-workout supplements – in reverse order of awesomeness.

NO explode 2 review

BSN’s N.O. Xplode  was one of the original muscle building pre workout formulas to hit main stream markets. It effectively works to:

  • boost muscle endurance and reduce fatigue
  • boost nitric oxide production, muscle fullness, pumps and vascularity
  • mental alertness
  • powerful energy

9. Infinite Labs: Juggernaut HP

infinite labs juggernaut hp review

Juggernaut HP has a bunch of unique ingredients, especially for a pre-workout supplement. The ingredients are classified into 3 categories: Advanced Vaso & Adaption Matrix, Cellular Augmentation System, and Intensity and Focus Amplifier. Sound pretty technical? In simple terms, Juggernaut HP is designed to:
Increase Lean Mass, Stimulate Explosive Muscle Power, Increase Muscle Fiber Growth, Prolong the “pump” , Reduce Fatigue, Increase Blood Flow.

8. MuscleTech: NeuroCore

muscle tech neurocore reviewOne of the most notable and respectable features of NeuroCore is its no proprietary blend. Thats great. We can see exactly whats inside. And honestly, the formulation is good. All ingredients are where they should be based on clinical standards.

Some of the better ingredients of NeuroCore are beta-alanine, Creatine HCL, L-Citrulline, and Yohimbe. The product provides a decent pump and improved blood circulation. The only downside (possibly considered upside depending on who you are asking) is its excessive amounts of caffeine  – which is sure to get you going.

7. BPI Sports: 1.M.R. Powder

1MR Review

1.M.R or 1.More.Rep provides intense “super laser like focus, clarity, and energy.” This product packs a lot of great ingredients into its micro sized serving. You won’t find worthless fillers here. 1.M.R hits you fast and strong, leaving you with nothing but intense tunnel vision desire to lift. Customer ratings from bodybuilding.com put this product at 8.3 out of 10.

6. Cobra Labs: The Curse

the curse preworkout reviewThe Curse by Cobra Labs offers intense energy and insane drive to lift like never before. The products ingredients are broken up into 3 blends: Energizing Muscle Fuel, Blood Flow Amplifier, and Extreme Mental Focus. Overall reviews from customers are great and its relatively cheap!

5. USPlabs: Jack3d

new jack3d review Jack3d’s claim to faim is its unique ingredient blend that provides clean, focused, jitter and tingle free energy that lasts a long time. Additional benefits include:

  • No Sugar or Carbs
  • Bloat Free Micro Technology
  • Activates Thermogenic Receptors and Stimulates Muscle Pump

Jack3d does not contain any creatine, which is rare for a preworkout supplement and may be beneficial if you are getting your creatine intake elsewhere.

4. Nutrex: Hemo-Rage

hemo rage reviewThis is a no-nonsense intense pre workout guaranteed to get you raging. Never has a product been so deserving of its name. The makers of Hemo-Rage assure 1 scoop is all you need, and from personal experience, this is absolutely true. Besides its intense energy boost, Hemo-Rage utilizes the high quality CreaPure creatine monohydrate.

3. MusclePharm: Assault

musclepharm assault review

MusclePharm uses CreaPure and Con-Cret creatine (micronized creatine HCL). It also provides your BCAA’s in a patent pending 3:1:2 ratio. This essentially helps support natural energy, cell recovery, and muscle mass. Assault has positioned itself as the world’s most studied and researched pre-workout on the market. It contains no banned supplements. No doubt about it, this is a fantastic product.


craze pre workout reviewCraze boasts a pure product formulation and no “crappy fillers.” Some what unique to craze is their inclusion of the ingredient citrulline to boost nitric oxide levels and blood flow. Additionaly, Craze works to reduce/prevent lactic acid and muscle fatigue. Overall, Craze has been a huge “craze” and continues to be a top selling product.

2. Cellucor: C4 Extreme

cellucor c4 extreme review Cellucor’s C4 Extreme is one of the all time best selling pre workouts in history. It utilizes patented Creatine Nitrate which dramatically improves absorption and also combines NO3 for boosted vascular pumps. Other ingredients include beta-alanine, arginine, tyrosine, and various energy boosting ingredients… like all good preworkouts should have. This product really combines 3 crucial products into one making it the perfect blend to kick start your workout.

1. Oxypump

oxypump reviewUPDATED. I haven’t been using Oxypump for long, but my love for it has surpassed C4 and Craze (RIP) and has become my number one pick as best pre-workout. The energy boost is unreal – I can lift noticeably harder and longer. I honestly just feel invincible and completely stoked on life.

Oxypump contains 3 types of creatine (monohydrate, DiCreatine Malate, & Creatine Ethyl Ester) which is great. It also contains 1000 mg of Citrulline Malate – which is responsible for the awesome boost in vascularity. If you have been using the same pre workout for a while, I highly recommend giving Oxypump a try.

  1. Muscle Pharm all the way!

  2. Good list, absolutely a big fan of the 1.M.R by BPI Sports!

  3. Neurocore suxxxxxx

    • Ha ya we found a lot of people either hate it or love. That’s why its all the way in the back at 8th place. Thanks for commenting!

  4. Great list. I tried some of them in the list such as MP Assault, Jack3D and Cellucor 4C Extreme. My favorite is MP Assault. It gives me a very good pump and lasts for my full 2 hrs session. It is my no.1 choice. Btw, there are some problems for Craze. It is no longer available on bb.com and amazon.

  5. No PPN Gunpowder?

  6. Good list – I also like Beast Blood. That stuff is nuts.

  7. Solid list of pre workouts. Have you tried king preworkout. That shuts greeeat

  8. I second that. Long live the king is the best preworkout hands down. You guy should review it!

  9. Jacked Micro on this list? No way. My two of the best arent even on here! I have tried almost every Prework out there is. my top 5 would be 1. Bullnox Androrush, 2. Beast Beast Mode, 3. Cellucor C4, 4. B.P.I. Sports 1.M.R., 5. MusclePharm Assualt/Iron Pump.

    The Androrush and Beast Mode are seriously far far better then the rest. I gave androrush a slight edge over beast mode because I feel like it the focus and intensity last a little longer. But they are both FARRRR better than any other on these lists though
