DMAA Pre Workout Supplements Guide: 1,3 Dimethylamylamine Based Supplements In 2020

Last Updated November 11, 2020



We know the feeling…

It feels like every other pre workout is full of fluff and weak stimulants.

What's worse is that pre workouts try to be hardcore with 600mg caffeine.

It doesn't have to be this way…

DMAA supplements are out there and have never been more legal (in most countries).

While the FDA is trying their best get the stimulant off the shelves, it's never been easier to find DMAA-based supplements.  

And while we know DMAA is safe, Hi-Tech has tried their best to fight to keep it legal.

And who knows what the outcome may be, no matter how safe it is proven to be.

While DMHA is nice and smooth, it isn't as hard hitting as DMAA is.

Think of it as being a harder hitting coffee, like espresso vs regular coffee. 

So these are current supplements that contain the hardcore stimulant, 1,3 Dimethylamylamine.

If you're looking for a ranking list, check out the strongest pre workout list. 

Combining this powerful stimulant with a natural compound like Laxogenin will not only increase thermogenesis but you'll also maintain or even increase strength.

You can take things to the next level with Halodrol (see the ranked prohormones here).

Testosterone boosters may have a similar effect as they can help maintain hormone levels and enhance recovery. 

Isn't DMAA Banned?

It's close to being banned!

Some countries have officially banned DMAA, like Australia but there are plenty of supplements that feature this hard hitting stimulant.

There isn't any evidence that DMAA is any more dangerous than caffeine. Both of these stimulants are dangerous if used irresponsibly.

There has been lawsuits against Jack3d.

But none of them have won against UPSLabs and recently the latest one has been dismissed by a court judge. 

Here's a quote from Jared Wheat of Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals: 

"We have sold over 200 million doses of DMAA with no serious AERs. We will have our expert report from our toxicologist ready next week and will share with PricePlow. It shows DMAA has fewer AERs than Vitamin C per amount consumed, which backs up the safety of the compound and there is no evidence establishing that DMAA containing products are causally associated with adverse events.”

— Jared Wheat, Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals


While these supplements are highly potent, you don't want to take them on a daily basis.

Unless you see yourself take a stim break for a week or two.

The best way to keep tolerance in check is to use these stimulants in moderation.

The less you use them, the harder they'll hit.

A general guideline we like to use is using these types of pre workouts up to 3 times a week, optimally twice a week, and maximum up to 4 times a week. 

If you don't get any energy from pre workouts high amounts of caffeine and exotic stimulants than you badly need to kick back and take a stim break.

You would need at least a month break, up to 2 months or more if you feel up for it. 

If you must take caffeine, take it at moderate doses, between 50-150mg. 

Taper down per week until you get to little to no caffeine. 

This list is constantly being updated and more DMAA based supplements are being added…

There are some supplements here that contain both DMAA and ephedra but if really just looking for ephedra-based, you'll find the list here.

So keep an eye out, check out the strongest pre workouts if you're looking for something powerful or check our pre workout buying guide.a

DMAA Pre Workouts

Once in a while we find a gem that we simply can't ignore.

Usually, a DMAA pre workout would have blends hidden in a prop blend, especially from a company we've never heard of.

But Irate by Juggernaut Nutrition is different and has every ingredient disclosed.

At 70mg DMAA per scoop and 300mg caffeine from 2 different forms, you'll be getting a nice flow of energy for a nice period of time.

The price could be better but considering the shortage of DMAA supplements out there, it's more than fair.



When it comes to DMAA, there's nothing better when it comes to mood.

DMHA was introduced as an alternative, but Dark Energy has both DMAA and DMHA!

The company is a bit unknown as they've only had their website live since 2016.

And on their product page they put “not for human consumption”.

There seems to be many praising this to be great, almost as good as Craze, but we don't know if it's that good.

We just know it's loaded with stimulants and that anyone trying this should start with the smallest scoop possible.

It's landed our top 10 strongest pre workout rankings and you can check out the review here.



Crack is a hardcore pre workout that has come from one of the cooler looking companies we’ve seen so far. 

Typically the most DMAA you should expect in a pre workout like this is no more than 75mg. 

There’s risk for elevating blood pressure when taking more than 75mg.

Since this has a strong combination of nitric oxide boosters, it will help increase blood flow and in return, help maintain normal blood pressure levels. 

Still, there’s 400mg caffeine if you’re taking a full serving. 

We recommend taking one scoop, which is half a serving, or even less and you’ll still be getting generous amounts of ergogenic aids and more.



Jack3d is one of the legendary pre workouts, if not, the only one that started the DMAA trend.

It's back and it's bringing a bang with the combination of stimulants like DMAA, DMHA, caffeine and more.

The formula is nearly the same, and that means yes, arginine is still here along with a prop blend of creatine and beta alanine.

The only stimulants that are disclosed is DMAA and caffeine.

If you want the full hard hitting doses of 75mg DMAA and 405mg caffeine, you'll need to use 3 scoops.

It does also have DMHA, which is rarely combined with DMAA.

And DMHA is suppose to be the mild alternative to DMAA!



Hellnox is another DMAA pre workout to come from Aggressive Labz.

With no signs of slowing down, this formula is as hardcore as you can imagine.

Nootropics, stimulants, strength boosters and nitric oxide are all packed in this underground-looking pre workout.

Hellnox discloses a lot of ingredients but the downside is that they have a few in a prop blend.

You don't know how much of the nootropics you're getting, but at the very least, DMAA and caffeine are both disclosed.

And they are at the perfect dosage of 75mg DMAA and 350mg caffeine.

Try Hellnox before it's another DMAA pre workout that's hard to find.



At a time where DMAA is hard to find, expensive and almost banned from being sold, Atlas Labs is not one to hide.

They've brought out a fat burner with ingredients proving to be better than the legendary Hydroxyelite itself, and now with the same approach, they have a powerful pre workout with 100mg DMAA.

Phenta Inferno is not only a pre workout but also a fat burner as it has 400mg caffeine, and 100mg synephrine, which will unleash havoc on fat.

It's 100mg dose of DMAA is a bit on the high side and it might cause the common side effects like higher blood pressure, as it is above the 70mg dose.

Take less than a scoop and you'll be in the safe zone of those side effects.

With more hardcore pre workouts coming out, there seems to be an endless selection to choose from.

Atomic Bomb packs energy with it's big blend of stimulants, N.O. boosters and strength enhancers.

It not only uses DMHA but also packs DMAA, combining both was a rare thing to see in a pre workout but it's been working well for other pre workouts like Dark Energy and Kracked.

While the doses for those stimulants are not disclosed, the strength enhancers all show how much they have in each compound.

You'll get a full 3 gram dose of betaine anhydrous, a strength boosting volumizer that helps increase power and pumps.

On top of that, it includes 2.5g beta alanine, 2g taurine, 1.5g creatine, 500mg agmatine, 150mg pink himalayan salt and 200mg theanine.

The nice dose of theanine will provide smoothness to what will seem to be an overwhelming flow of energy and focus from the stimulant blend.

There's 2 forms of caffeine, 2 forms of exotic stimulants, along with n-methyltyramine and acetyl-l-tyrosine.

The appropriately named Atomic Bomb is one of the stronger pre workouts we've seen so far.

Use FITFREK5 for a bit of a discount.



Rated R is another DMAA containing pre workout that contains a simple but effective formula for enhancing focus and energy.

While it does contain taurine, beta alanine and agmatine, Rated R contains mostly stimulants so you'll feel amped up for your workouts.

The big 350mg dose of caffeine is more than enough to supply long lasting energy.

DMAA is maxed out at 80mg and it also contains Alpha GPC, a premium choline source for enhancing focus and mental function.

Caffeine and DMAA are the only two ingredients that seem to have their doses disclosed.

Everything else is in a prop blend, but otherwise Rated R is up there for having DMAA and caffeine at maximum doses.



Fat burners with DMAA come in different formulas and some of them even copy formulas.

But AR 1500 is different, we've never seen a fat burner that combines DMAA, with a SARM.

AR 1500 by Freedom Pharma packs a punch but unfortunately it is in a prop blend.

The SARM in here is SR9009 and it's referred to as being cardio in a pill.

The reason for that is because it forces the body to use fat and glucose for energy, making you feel stronger with more energy without feeling lightheaded.

But it is a downside that it doesn't have anything disclosed, not even caffeine or DMAA.

So take it with caution and never exceed the recommended serving.



Kreed is a limited time release by aggressive labs.

Like Dark Energy, it has DMHA, DMAA and a whole bunch of stimulants.

Some ingredients are disclosed but we don't know how much stimulants are in here.

Otherwise, we just know this is a strong pre workout.



Venom is a pre workout that no one has heard of…

But with 100mg DMAA and 350mg caffeine, it simply can't be ignored.

We recommend using less than a scoop because going over 70mg of DMAA will put you at risk for high blood pressure and unwanted side effects.

And that way you'll have more servings and better bang for your buck.

Use coupon code FITFREK5 for 5% off.

It goes without saying… Use this pre workout with caution!



A fairly simple but effective formula that uses ephedra and DMAA, Meltdown is a decent fat burner sold at a decent price.

You're getting 150mg caffeine, 50mg DMAA and ephedra / yohimbine.

At 2 servings, you'll get 100mg DMAA which is a bit high so be careful as this can put you at risk for elevated blood pressure.

D-Cut is a fat burner that uses effective ingredients for increased thermogenesis.

It is decently strong with 40mg DMAA, 250mg caffeine and synephrine.

Hordenine is included to help prolong the effects of stimulants here so you'll be less likely to experience a crash.

A prop blend, but one that contains DMAA, Oxyred is a simple formula for fat burner.

It should be the last thing you get since you don't know the doses for anything, not even caffeine.

This strong pre workout contains both DMHA and DMAA to increase energy and focus.

It made our strongest pre workout list because of its formula.

It's fully disclosed, uses various stimulants and even contains decent doses of beta alanine, agmatine and taurine.

Focus, energy and performance, Aventador is a solid pre workout with almost everything.

While there isn't much reviews on this pre workout, it contains some hefty doses of stimulants and will put you in a highly energized state.

400mg caffeine alone is enough to cause jitters so be careful with this pre workout.

The company is also known as 22nd Century Labs for some reason.

We've seen this pre workout on Amazon before but that's the DMAA-free version.

Get it from here to get the DMAA version.

Nemesis combines a potent stimulant blend that's based around Caffeine with a unique combination of different types of creatine for cell volumization, or, water based pumps.

This is not something you see in a pre-workout every day, and they make the most of it by also including Taurine.

The creatine complex also stimulates ATP production – your muscles source of energy.

From there, Nemesis contains a N.O. based complex for nitric oxide-based pumps.

On top of that, there's beta alanine for extended endurance.



Leatherfaze is a massive 20g per scoop pre workout that leads with DMAA and a whole bunch of other stimulants that'll sure get you going.

The nice thing about this is that there's 45mg DMAA, not too much and not too little.

Anything over 70mg usually leads to high blood pressure, and you don't want that.



Bio Rage has made a pre workout named after it's company, Bio Rage.

Confused yet?

It mainly consists of 4 prop blends, one of which is caffeine and DMAA, in a 260mg blend.

So we could guess there's anywhere from 150 to 250mg caffeine, and / or 10mg to 75mg DMAA.

We have no idea to be honest.

We recommend starting out with half a scoop to assess if you get any side effects from it and work from there.

Instinct (formerly known as Animal Instinct) formalizes DMAA with a few other stimulants to get you in a energized, awaken state of mind.

This pre workout is strong and has the ingredients to back it up.

Like most of the pre workouts here, start with one scoop and don't underestimate it.

Of course, you'll find this pwo on our strongest pre workout list.

DMAA Fat Burners

There is little known about Atlas Labs other than the fact they have a very strong DMAA fat burner here, even stronger than Hydroxyelite.

Phenta 1,3 is fully disclosed, packs the max dose of stimulants and will surely be the best DMAA fat burner for 2019 as nothing else available in its category.

Juggernaut is a company that uses DMAA and isn't slowing down anytime soon.

This fat burner contains DMAA and a few other stimulants.

But the downside is that it doesn't disclose anything at all, not even how much DMAA is in this.

It does limit servings to 2 per day. But does that mean one in the morning and another in the afternoon?

Or do they mean 2 at the same time?

Take one pill to be safe as it may doses stimulants at maximum dosage.

Use coupon code FITFREK5 for 5% off.



Genone has an all prop blend fat burner here.

We don't like prop blends, but it has DMAA.

It reminds us of the previous Oxyelite and though we don't know how much of each ingredient there is, it looks like it might be one of your few options for DMAA as it is currently hard to find.



The Beginning Of An End

DMAA is once again leaving the market and this time it may be for good.

There's only a limited time before prices really start to soar and some DMAA products are already priced beyond $100!

So jump on pre workouts like Dust Extreme or Mesomorph, or you may never see them again in their true glory!

    • What do you see bad reviews for? Every product has bad reviews, it’s inevitable to have someone not like it. It’s like saying everyone will like espresso.

      But it depends on which product you’re referring to because these are all the products we found to have DMAA, and soon it’ll be completely unavailable to purchase.

    • The strongest and the most recommended stack for decades now is the ECA stack (ephedrine, caffeine and aspirin), you can get ephedrine from your local pharmacy with either Bronkaid (25mg ephedrine )or the less popular Primatene (12.5mg ephedrine).

      Otherwise, if you want to stick to pre made supplements, I recommend the standard stimulants list for you, ThermoFuel v9 is a great choice.

      Here’s the list :

  1. I have a tub of mesomorph with dmaa. Is it illegal to possess and use? I get drug tested weekly for illegal substances. Will it show up as an illegal substance? Please let me know. Thank you

    • Hi Sun. What country do you live in? If it’s the states then no it’s not illegal to possess. It’s just banned to sell.

      As for drug testing don’t take my word for it but this is what I found on the internet:
      “No. DMAA is not an amphetamine — it is an aliphatic amine (no phenyl ring.) It is impossible for anything without a phenyl ring to produce a positive for amphetamine in a standard drug test because the tests look for amphetamine metabolites, all of which retain the phenyl ring.”

      Just to be safe I wouldn’t take it 24 hours before your drug test. Or even a few days. It’s not worth the risk to fail a drug test. The test could be generic and very cheap.

      I once tried to import dmaa products into Qatar and they wanted to test it for drugs and it tested positive but I am sure they used a very low budget drug test.
