Best Pre-Workout Supplements

Going to the gym since I was 15 and using all types of pre-workout goodies since age 24, it's time we had a top ten list of the best brands/products to take before working out... In my opinion of course.
The Top Ten

PAN!C doesn't fill their product with a bunch of sugary syrup substances to make it taste better and it delivers a fantastic pump with the right amount of energy. Has PEA which is a great mood and focus enhancer.

Works so good! I get a great pump to work out and energy without feeling jittery and I can still go running after as with other pre-workouts. There is no way I can run when taking them.

Got this at a local nutrition shop, it was good. Recommended.

Kind of expensive but by far the longest lasting energy.

2 Jack3d

This is a solid supplement and has been for a while. I've taken it for several cycles. May or may not contain 1-3 dimethylamylamine which is a banned substance in drug tested athletics.

It actually enhance the metabolism of the body as well as energises the mitochondria of the cell.

3 C4 Extreme

This pre-workout will give you an incredible pump and unbelievable levels of energy (make sure you take it at least 4 hours before going to bed).

C 4 makes me want to stay on the treadmill for a extra 3 miles!

4 Black Powder

The first pre-workout supplement I ever took and loved it. The energy level is off the charts, however, the pump doesn't extend through the day.

5 SuperPump250

Super Pump has great flavors and doesn't cost too much either. There is a "max" version of this now, which I haven't tried, but, if it really is an improvement and not just marketing it should prove well.


Besides the awful lemonade flavor, N.O. delivers nicely.

7 Xpand

To be honest this tends to have a little too much niacin in the serving size. Having said that, as long as I didn't wear sweats while working out this was a solid supplement.

8 Creatine Monohydrate

Creatine is unbeatable. The "secret" however is to impregnate the body with regular doses, everyday, been in the gim or not.

9 Anarchy

Sheer caffeine and lots of it. If you're looking for an intense form of energy, this is definitely it.

10 Vapor

Having used a post workout from MuscleTech I had high hopes for Vapor. Unfortunately it just didn't perform like I'd hope. I'm not sure if it was just my body, but, didn't care too much for the product.

The Contenders
11 Mr. Hyde

The best pre workout for someone who has a strong tolerance!

12 The Curse
13 Sugar Free Rockstar

Laugh it up but if you mix up a sugar free energy drink with creatine and glutamine powder, well my friends, you have a pre-workout supplement. This is sort of a last resort and it pricey per scoop.

14 Iron Pump (Arnold Series)
15 N.O. Shotgun
16 Vitamin B12

If you don't have access to any other option and are on a tight budget, you can't go wrong with some plain old vitamin intake 30 minutes before a hard workout.
