Pre-Workouts Comparisons (50+) – (Nitric Oxide, Caffeine, BCAA and More)

By Nader Qudimat / Dec 29, 2016

It's not easy is it?

Choosing a pre workout isn't as easy as it used to be. 

There was once a time when you knew you were making the right choice because...

Well really you didn't have many choices a few years ago.

These days, you go anywhere and pre workouts can easily come in dozens, sometimes even hundreds depending on where you look.

Not all are created equal though...

You're going to want to find a pre workout that can help YOU reach your goals.

Some pre workouts have more nitric oxide based ingredients for the pump, while others are focused on strength and/or muscle hypertrophy.

Luckily for you, I've made and complied a whole shitload of pre workouts into this chart and listed the basics of what they have to offer.

It's never going to be finished...

There's still so much more to add.

If you want to get more details on one, just click on the name or the picture.​

Important Details

If you see RED, this means the dosage is an estimate from a proprietary blend. 

Active ingredients = this means the total ingredients without the fillers (flavoring, coloring etc)​

For the carnitine column:

ALC​ = Acetyl-L-Carnitine

LC LT= L-Carnitine L-Tartrate

For the citrulline column:

CM = Citrulline Malate​

Forged by the iron and cold steel, Nader takes his knowledge and hulk smashes it into this puny site.

Being an ex-hardgainer, he has no choice but to keep training until he has surpassed in every way imaginable.
