Strongest Pre Workouts of 2018

From the hardest hitting to the aggressive, this strongest pre workout guide has it all. If you're looking for complete pre workouts for bulking with ergogenic ingredients, then check out our regular pre workout guide here.

Whether you’re looking for legal amphetamine or the next “craze”, there’s sort of a trend that goes towards the “stim filled” pre workouts.

And I get trust me.

You might want to get up at 5 am, and hit the iron super hard or you might come back sick and tired from work...

So you'd want a pre workout that hits you harder than anything else in the world but at the same time, you don’t want to take crack.

Skip down to our final top 10 list or scroll down to choose according to your preferences. 

You can stack these pre workouts with ANY nitric oxide supplement, that does NOT have caffeine or any other stimulants. (See our nitric oxide buying guide).

If you're on a budget and want to save money, keep up with our Best Deals / coupon discounts page.

​​Stim bombs, aggression inducing, motivation enhancing, we've got it all (or try to).

These pre workouts are absolutely not for beginners or weak hearted.

Advanced bodybuilders may even avoid these and opt for non-stimulant pre workouts as they are generally beneficial for performance and gains.

The final and last top 10 list will show you our hand picked pre workouts (strongest of them all), while the other sections will show you anything from the most aggressive to the most focus-enhancing pwo's. 

So...

Unless you want to lay in bed for many days in a row feeling drained as a peach that is out of its season, don’t abuse these pre workouts.

The withdrawals are the worst.

You don't want to be a slave to caffeine and other stimulants.

In other words don’t use them more than 3 times (4 max) a week.

Get another pre workout with less stimulants because once you go off these hard hitters, you’ll feel soo drained and tired that you’ll feel completely useless.

Do check out our DMAA or Ephedra top 10 list for those specific stimulants. 

Warning: Limit your caffeine sources.

While you’re using a stimulant filled pre workout, or any pre workout for that matter, don’t drink coffee or consume anything with caffeine (including pepsi and other soda drinks)

You’re going to workout for the muscle gains, not for the “chasing the dragon high”.

Use these with a proper bodybuilding routine, good nutrition and possibly a mass gainer or a protein powder, and you've got yourself on the road to more gains...

Best Pre Workouts For Women...? 

If you're wondering where our "best pre workouts for women" are, well you're at the right place.

Let me break the news to you... there's no such thing as a pre workout for women.

Do you see Starbucks or anyone selling coffee labeling a cup of coffee for women / men? 

It's no different for pre workouts / most supplements.

If you can handle 300mg caffeine along with DMAA (check out our DMAA top 10 list here) and other stimulants, then you're fine with any of these pre workouts.

However if you're a beginner, or even advanced, you should always take a quarter of a scoop of any pre workout to assess your tolerence and work your way from there.

You may even benefit from just taking half servings throughout the entire bottle.

So ladies, don't spend the extra buck to get the specially marketed products that are geared towards you. Just get anything that you can handle, and test it out with half a serving or even less. ​

Tunnel Vision Enhancing Pre Workouts

We've found a pre workout that just may replace Craze, at least in the focus department.

You've been searching for that very pre, and we have too but none of them ever came close, not even their latest "Frenzy" (forget about Craze V2 it won't replace the first version).

Craze was the only pre workout that could produce that awesome tunnel focus along with strong euphoria, although there was more than likely to be banned substances in it. 

So you'd like to have some of that tunnel focus again, which is possible, though the euphoria aka "feel good energy" may not be there. 

Here we go with the the best focus-enhancing pre workouts....

Features:

  • DMHA
  • Bauhinia Purpurea Extract
  • Cacao Extract
  • Cymbidium Goeringii Extract (Orchilean)

Finally, a pre workout that we've all been asking for...

Hydrazine doesn't only have a caffeine-focused formula but it is well rounded with different ingredients to enhance focus and mental clarity.

Now the ingredients in here aren't exactly what you'd want in the ideal pre workout (like Pre-Kaged or Altius) but they are certainly strange and work to what Hydrapharm claims.

Don't take my word for it though, check out these reviews (click on the gray box below to reveal the reviews)...

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Craze replacement
  • thumbs-up
    1-2 pills per serving for long lasting effects
  • thumbs-up
    Increase in aggression and energy
  • thumbs-up
    Tunnel vision and mood support

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Expensive
  • thumbs-down
    Hard to find

Features:

  • 5g Citrullen
  • 1g AGmass (Agmatine Sulfate)
  • 1g Pomegranate Powder Extract
  • 300mg Vaso6 (Gallate Enhanced Oligomers)
  • 300mg Caffeine Anhydrous
  • Eria Jarensis Extract
  • Julgans Regia Extract
  • ST1M-X (Could be yohimbine)
  • 100mg Theacrine (Tasteless TeaCrine)
  • 25mg KannaEase
  • 50mg AstraGIN Blend

Re1gn is a masterpiece of a pre workout from Olympus Labs that uses the more expensive form of DMHA (2-amino-5-methylheptane) that is a bit stronger and more expensive than the commonly used 2-amino-6 form.

With DMHA, caffeine paired with Eria Jarensis and ST1M-X you're not only going to be enhanced with motivation and energy but you'll also be in a zone of focus that is nearly unmatched by most pre workouts to this day.

On top of that, it has full doses of nitric oxide boosters so you'll be pumped and full while being energized by the number of stimulants in here.

The crash here is very subtle, and with the focus lasting so long (4-6 hours) you will benefit from this if you have anything that needs focus after your workout.

Overall, Re1gn is amazingly made so try it if you haven't yet!

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Big blend of stimulants for energy and focus
  • thumbs-up
    Uses new stimulant (ST1M-X)
  • thumbs-up
    Balanced nitric oxide formula (Agmatine, Vaso6, and more)

  • L-Carnitine L-Tartrate
  • Pentergy
  • B-PEA HCl
  • Tangerine Extract
  • Caffeine

Yes we know, this would be a pricey stack, but hear us out...

Frenzy is fairly priced but Craze V2 is getting cheaper as it's not as popular as it should've been.

Craze V2 has a bit of a unique focus enhancement to it, but other than that, it falls short in every department.

When combined with a pre workout that increases aggression and energy like Frenzy, you'll find yourself in a fearless-like state with a super focused mindset with the purpose of destroying PR's.

Stacking Frenzy with Craze v2 is not unheard of, in fact Predator Nutrition recommends it for more focus and endurance.

It's the closest you'll ever get to an awesome-almost perfect pre workout

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Increase in aggression and focus
  • thumbs-up
    Unstoppable stack for crazy energy and motivation
  • thumbs-up
    Increases effectiveness each use
  • thumbs-up
    Tastes like pop (only pre workout that does so far)
  • thumbs-up
    Can take it late in the evenings

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Mysterious prop blends
  • thumbs-down
    Laughable formula (but it works)

Features:

  • 400mg Caffeine (4 sources)
  • L-Citrulline Malate
  • Betaine Anhydrous
  • L-Taurine
  • Choline Bitartrate
  • Beet Root Powder
  • 2-Amino (DMHA)
  • Synephrine
  • Hordenine
  • Huperzine A

We're usually not one for hype but this is a pre workout that may actually stand a chance against Mesomorph and it doesn't even have DMAA.

DVST8 Crimson is a powerful pre workout that packs not only 400mg of caffeine, but DMHA and a whole bunch of nootropics as well.

It contains choline bitartrate and huperzine A that will give you a punch in assisting with laser-like focus.

It also contains citrulline malate, betaine anhydrous and l-taurine for further muscle volumization and growth.

    Combines many nootropics and various stimulants
  • thumbs-up
    Increases energy better than most pre workouts

    Prop blends

    400mg of caffeine with additional stims

Aggressive Pre Workouts

Here you've got pre workouts that'll boost your aggression and get you amped up in a very angry-like fashion.

Obviously that doesn't mean these pre workouts will make you beat up your loved ones​ (get out of here if it does), but it will make you lock onto your angry emotions and channel it towards every set, rep and exercise. 

Best Aggressive Pre Workouts

Motivation, aggression and hunger for more.... 

That's what we look for when it comes to aggression inducing pre workouts. 

Most of these pre workouts have a mix of stims and nootropics that'll make your hands shake and fiend for the cold iron.

There used to be a lot more pre workouts on the market that specialized in this category.

A notable one was Anadraulic State GT by LG Science (ASGT) but it is discontinued for whatever reason.

We have a lot of trouble finding comparable pre workouts if there are any at all.

It's most likely better just to go for a pure testosterone booster like these, some of them will increase aggression. ​

But here's a few, after endless days and months of researching and looking for something that increases motivation and rage like no other, this is what we found... ​

​Check out these powerful pre workouts....

Features:

  • Creatine Monohydrate
  • Taurine
  • L-Citrulline
  • L-Carnitine L-Tartrate
  • Pentergy
  • B-PEA HCl
  • Tangerine Extract
  • Caffeine

Driven Sports is not the most trustworthy company out there and we certainly do not recommend taking this if you're being tested for banned substances.

Frenzy is not comparable to Craze at all.

This pre workout has carved itself a category of its own and nothing has come close to what it offers.

It brings out your inner 18 year old self again with "limitless" aggression and motivation.

It's like Bullnox but it is much stronger.

The energy makes you forget pain, and the aggression makes you remember why you started training.

Caffeine is at the bottom of the formula which is a good sign since it means it's not relying on it for energy.

Frenzy's formula is a laughing stock for us knowledgeable supplement freaks but so was Craze, yet it still did what it claimed.

With 140 reviews and a 96% rating, there’s no way that everyone can be wrong about this pre workout.

A lot of people stack it with Craze V2 because it somehow enhances the focus.

So combine Frenzy with Craze v2 for limitless-like focus and endurance (but nothing compares to the original Craze, unless it's Hydrazine).

  • 65mg 1,3 DMAA

You'll see Mesomorph all  over this page.

It doesn't only increase energy, focus and strength but it also gives a bit of aggression by making you feel like you could run through walls (but don't do that).

With 65mg DMAA, 300mg caffeine and a couple of ergogenic ingredients, it's no wonder that this pre workout can do so much from one serving.

What makes Mesomorph different is that it contains creatine nitrate, so pumps and vascularity will increase and continue to work well with each use.

The best part is that the flavors are so diverse and delicious to keep your taste buds satisfied.

There is bad news though as DMAA is possibly discontinued so there will be a different stimulant soon.

Get this while DMAA is still in it!

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Increases both energy and aggression
  • thumbs-up
    Full dosages of DMAA and caffeine for long lasting performance

    Proprietary blend

Features:

  • 1.5g Trimethylglycine Nitrate
  • 1g N-Carbamyl Glutamate
  • 1g HydroMax
  • 200mg Selaginella Tamariscina Extract
  • 200mg Longan Fruit Extract
  • 225mg Caffeine Anhydrous
  • 150mg Rhodiola Rosea Extract (standardised for Salidroside)
  • 100mg Theacrine
  • 75mg Legendary Lancelot
  • 50mg Astragin
  • 25mg Cocoa-Drol

When you're lifting, you want to be unstoppable.

But to go all out might be a little hard if you don't have the right pre workout.

Truthfully you only need a bit of rage, and a strong mindset to get into the gym with a destructive attitude towards the iron but with the second version of Unstoppable, it makes it a whole lot easier.

The energy that comes from this is strong, but the focus is even better.

It puts you in a very aggressive state of mind.

There's a unique mix of stimulants in here, ranging from 175mg caffeine, 100mg theacrine to thermopsis lanceolata and longan fruit extract.

This unique blend will have you stepping in the gym with your eyes on the iron, with absolutely nothing else on your mind.

The best part is that it contains creatine nitrate, so pumps and vascularity will increase with Mesomorph. 

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Increase in aggressive focus
  • thumbs-up
    Increases strength and endurance
  • thumbs-up
    Contains plenty of ergogenics

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Limited availability

  • Tribulus Terrestris Extract
  • Stinging Nettle
  • Coenzyme Q10

Bullnox (also known as B-NOX) is like the mild version of Frenzy, but gives you more of a anger / frustration feeling.

The long formula is an entire prop blend that is most likely underdosed, it contains ingredients that'll increase endurance and performance.

This could replace your ZMA since it contains it already.

Bullnox (or the newer looking B-NOX) will essentially provide that urge to lift and make you feel like you're about to break a PR or two.

This also contains a testosterone blend but it most likely won't give you as much as a stand alone booster.

Like most pre workouts, it's best used 1-3 times a week for maximum effectiveness or you'll build tolerance quickly.

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Increase in motivation
  • thumbs-up
    Creates an urgency to lift
  • thumbs-up
    Great blend of ingredients
  • thumbs-up
    2-in-1 as it replaces ZMA
  • thumbs-up
    Massive boost in aggression
  • thumbs-up
    Great for fasted workouts as it has BCAA's and carbs

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Prop blend and could be underdosed
  • thumbs-down
    Tolerance quickly builds up if taken too frequently

Features:

  • 3g L-Citrulline
  • 1.5g Beta Alanine
  • 1.5g L-Arginine
  • Resveratrol
  • Pterostilbene
  • DMAE Bitartrate
  • N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine
  • 325mg Caffeine
  • Theanine
  • Alpha Yohimbine

Nitraflex tries to be something different, something we bodybuilders can always appreciate.

Not only does it have 325 grams of caffeine (equal to 3 scoops of the original Jack3d) but it also has testosterone boosting ingredients.

Nitraflex combines stimulants, nitric oxide and testosterone inducing ingredients.

While we don't know for sure if it actually increases testosterone, we do know it gives a kind of "alpha-feeling" so you'll feel at the top of your physical and mental game. 

There's a couple of nitric oxide ingredients in here but everything is in a prop blend, so there's no telling how much of ingredient there is.

They recently redesigned the bottle so they don't use the formal scientific names for the ingredients like they used to.

It’s hard to read the ingredient label, so I’ll translate it for you... (click the ingredients below)

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Increased energy and focus
  • thumbs-up
    Increases alpha-male feeling
  • thumbs-up
    Tiny bit of pumps

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Prop blends

High Energy With DMAA

These pre workouts will have you jumping off walls and doing flips between sets squats and deadlifts. 

Proceed with caution though as some of these are just loaded with stimulants and should always start with half a scoop or less!​

These have exotic stims like DMAA and DMHA, both very powerful stimulants to keep you energized all day long.

God of Rage is more than a pre workout.

It’s a gateway for rage and motivation as it’s packed with a lot of stimulants, nitric oxide boosters and much more.

Ranging from 60mg DMAA, 20mg higenamine, 2.5g beta alanine, 3g creatine and more, Rage in a bottle is what this pre workout is.

For most people, half a scoop or even less would be sufficient to get energy and focus up.

As always, start with half a scoop or less to assess your tolerance.

You don’t want to take more than a scoop of this or you’d just be well on your way to overdosing on this stuff!

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    ​Tunnel-like focus
  • thumbs-up
    ​100% disclosed formula without any hidden blends
  • thumbs-up
    ​ One scoop servings
  • thumbs-up

If you've ever tried or seen Jack3d then you'll know it's formula is almost identical to Jack'd Up.

Though Jack'd Up is a whole lot better than Jack3d in terms of ingredients, it is still all stuffed in a prop blend.

That doesn't stop people from trying it as Hi-Tech usually puts out quality pre workouts and fat burners.

Jack'd Up is one to try if you want energy and pumps in a tiny 5.5g scoop.

It will soon disappear from the market though as DMAA is being taken away from us!

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Disclosed DMAA dose (25mg)
  • thumbs-up
    Strong pumps from agmatine and nitrates
  • thumbs-up
    Excellent energy and focus

Cons

  • thumbs-down
    Prop blends

Features:

  • 65mg DMAA
  • 25mg Ephedra Extract
  • 100mg caffeine
  • 13g Protein (Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate)
  • 16g Carbs
  • 2.6g Essential Amino Acids
  • 75mg Choline Bitartrate
  • 75mg Inositol
  • Loaded with vitamins and minerals

If you trained hard in the 90’s, then you probably heard or tried the original Ultimate Orange.

It contained the currently banned stimulant, ephedrine and was (and still is) the most hardcore pre workout ever.

Ephedrine combined with caffeine and a few other stimulants turned any average Joe into Superman in mere seconds.

Nothing has come close since the removal of this pre workout (Thanks FDA!), except for a few like Craze and Mesomorph.

Until today as Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals has brought back the ultimate pre workout to life and has made it as good as the original.

With the same label and graphics, Ultimate Orange is back and it has everything from ephedra, DMAA to protein and carbs.

The DMAA here will replace what ephedra doesn’t have from ephedrine, and with only 100mg caffeine per serving, there’s still plenty of stimulants in here so don’t mistake this for something mild.

Unlike most pre workouts, this has protein, carbs and loads of vitamins so you can be sure you’ll be primed with everything you need to destroy your workout, literally.

While DMAA isn’t as hard hitting as ephedrine, it is still one of the best alternatives today.

So while we won’t be getting ephedrine back in Ultimate Orange anytime soon, this reformulation is nearly on the same level.

This pre workout is like if Mesomorph was combined with VPX’S N.O. Shotgun but even better since it has loads vitamins and minerals.

It doesn’t get any better than Ultimate Orange.

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Complete pre workout with protein, carbs and hard hitting stimulants
  • thumbs-up
    Nearly the same formula (except with DMAA and ephedra instead of ephedrine)
  • thumbs-up
    Strong but balanced pre workout
  • thumbs-up
    True one scooper
  • thumbs-up
    Loaded with minerals and vitamins
  • thumbs-up
    Only 100mg caffeine but still maximizes stimulants at one scoop

Cons

    16 servings
  • thumbs-down
    Expensive (28 grams per scoop, loaded with protein, carbs and stimulants)

Features:

  • Caffeine Anhydrous

  • L-Taurine
  • Creatine Nitrate
  • Creatinol-O-Phosphate
  • Agmatine Sulfate
  • Beta Alanine
  • Citrulline Malate
  • Arginine AKG
  • ​L Norvaline

Interestingly, this is the exact same formula as Nemesis – there is nothing different about it at all.

Otherwise, as with Nemesis, it’s a multi-phase pump formula with an intense stimulant blend.

  • Creatine HCL
  • L-Taurine

Nemesis is a unique pre-workout with a potent combination of ingredients that will drive your toughest workouts – there’s a good mix of stimulants for intense energy and focus, and a unique two-phase pump combination of different forms of Creatine with Taurine for cell volumizing based pumps, and a N.O. based complex for nitric oxide-based pumps.

On top of that, there’s Beta Alanine for endurance and the Creatine complex also stimulates ATP production – remember ATP is the fuel that drives your muscles through your work out.

Pros

  • thumbs-up
    Intense energy
  • thumbs-up
    Extreme focus
  • thumbs-up
    Contains NO boosters
  • thumbs-up

High Energy With DMHA 

Features:

  • 3.2 Beta Alanine
  • 1g Agmatine Sulfate
  • 1g Hydromax
  • 500mg Choline Bitartrate
  • 300mg Caffeine Anhydrous

  • 50mg Theacrine
  • 25mg Naringin
  • 2mg Alpa Yohimbe

If you’re looking for straight up brutal motivation, CT Fletcher is the man to go to.

This celebrity endorsed and made pre workout is actually worth it, it performs better than most pre workouts in it's catagory and it’s a fully dosed, highly stimmed pre workout.

Sidewalk Kraka is a beast igniting pre workout that's made for energy and focus with 125mg DMHA and 300mg caffeine, along with 200mg Eria Jarensis for mood and extra motivation.

With DMAA disappearing from the market, this is going to be our number 1 recommended pre workout for fantastic energy and decent pumps.

Kraken has a bit more DMHA and Eria Jarensis but less caffeine per scoop, and the same pump ingredients.

Rumor has it that it may be getting a reformulation soon and CT Fletcher is in need of a heart transplant so there’s no telling how long Kraka will stay this hardcore.

If you enjoy your stims and want DMHA in your pre workout, then you’ll love Sidewalk Kraka.

Pros

If Mesomorph removed DMAA and had DMHA instead, then it would become Kraken.

This pre workout is packed with not only full doses of ergogenics like beta alanine and citrulline, but it loads up on eria jarenesis and DMHA to get you in the zone and fully motivated to break personal records.

There are no pre workouts that contain this much DMHA or even combines the mood boosting eria jarensis with it.

You won’t face any crashes either as DMHA is known to be much smoother and longer lasting compared to DMAA.

Olympus Labs has brought us all kinds of hardcore supplements ranging from test boosters to pre workouts.

Before Re1gn, we had a strength and energy booster called Conqu3r Unleashed and it was a popular pre workout for a few years.

It was one we kept coming back to.

Now they've created something beyond anything they've created before, with all new and mostly patented ingredients, it's time to make it "Re1gn"!

Giant Doses of Nitric Oxide Boosters

We rarely see this much citrulline being used in any pre workout.

Re1gn has a giant 5 gram dose of the pure stuff (equal to about 10g of citrulline malate)... Pumps ahoy!

Besides citrulline, we also have Vaso6, a never used before patented ingredient that promises to enhance pumps beyond anything you've tried before.

And after all this, we still have a nice 1 gram dose of agmatine (AGmass) which will further prolong pumps and enhance mood to keep you uplifted and motivated throughout your workout.

5 Stimulants For Maximum Focus and Energy

While most of Re1gn is hidden behind prop blends, we still see that this has a nice formula consisting of 5 hard hitting stimulants that'll give you energy from all levels.

Starting with 300mg caffeine for good old fashioned increased alertness and energy, you're also going to feel great thanks to the strong PEA-based ingredient, Eria Jarensis and the DMHA ingredient, Julgans Regia extract.

The blend of stimulants are in a 678mg blend but it is safe to assume that the next two ingredients (Eria Jarensis and DMHA) is dosed fairly high as the last ingredient is St1M-X (extracted from the same plant as yohimbine but could be one of many constituents.)
