Jump toTop 10 Pre WorkoutsAggressive Pre'sTop 10 With Standard StimsTunnel Focus Pill-Based DMAA-based DMHA-based 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.

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. But just recently, there's been a discovery on 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). Ever since Craze has been removed and discontinued, there's been quite a few pre workouts which promised to replace it.At some point, Craze was ruling with the crown of being the pre workout that can get in you not only in a super-focused state, but also made you feel good!Here we have the best pre workouts just for that.We got you.So you'd like to pinpoint your focus and get into a supreme, zen-like mindset that can only enhance your motivation and mind-to-muscle connection.

Tunnel Vision Enhancing Pre WorkoutsHere we go.... 1. Hydrazine by Hydrapharm 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)... Click here to read the reviews... Pros Craze replacement1-2 pills per serving for long lasting effectsIncrease in aggression and energyTunnel vision and mood support Cons ExpensiveHard to find Check It Out 2. Frenzy Stacked with Craze V2 by Driven Sports 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 Increase in aggression and focusUnstoppable stack for crazy energy and motivationIncreases effectiveness each useTastes like pop (only pre workout that does so far)Can take it late in the evenings Cons Mysterious prop blendsLaughable formula (but it works) Check It Out 3. DVST8 Crimson by Inspired Nutraceuticals 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.

Aggressive Pre WorkoutsHere 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 WorkoutsMotivation, 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.... 1. Frenzy by Driven Sports 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).

Mesomorph by APS Nutrition 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 Increases both energy and aggression Full dosages of DMAA and caffeine for long lasting performanceContains creatine nitrates and ergogenic ingredients Cons Proprietary blend Check It Out 3. Unstoppable by Dedicated Nutrition 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 Increase in aggressive focusIncreases strength and enduranceContains plenty of ergogenics Cons Limited availability Check It Out 4. BullNox by Betancourt Nutrition 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 Increase in motivationCreates an urgency to liftGreat blend of ingredients2-in-1 as it replaces ZMAMassive boost in aggressionGreat for fasted workouts as it has BCAA's and carbs Cons Prop blend and could be underdosedTolerance quickly builds up if taken too frequently Check It Out 5. NitraFlex By GAT 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...

High Energy With DMAAThese 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.1. Mesomorph by APS Nutrition Mesomorph is packed with everything from nitrates to DMAA and it will not let you down from a hardcore workout. The formula is fantasatic and has 65mg of DMAA, and about 300mg of caffeine.Every scoop is packed with 15 grams of active ingredients that range from creatine, agmatine and citrulline malate. It comes to no surprise that this has it's place in our top 10 pre workout list.The flavors are exotic so if you're a flavor addict, you'll love the choices as they range from rocket pop, to tutti frutti. Pros 15 grams of active ingredientsAgmatine and citrulline malate for pumps and endurance65mg DMAA and 300mg caffeine (approx) for energyWide range of flavorsOff the wall energy Cons Prop blends (nothing disclosed except for DMAA) Check It Out 2. Ultimate Orange by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Features: 65mg DMAA25mg Ephedra Extract100mg caffeine13g Protein (Hydrolyzed Whey Protein Isolate)16g Carbs2.6g Essential Amino Acids75mg Choline Bitartrate75mg InositolLoaded 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 Complete pre workout with protein, carbs and hard hitting stimulantsNearly the same formula (except with DMAA and ephedra instead of ephedrine)Strong but balanced pre workoutTrue one scooperLoaded with minerals and vitaminsOnly 100mg caffeine but still maximizes stimulants at one scoop Cons 16 servingsExpensive (28 grams per scoop, loaded with protein, carbs and stimulants) Check It Out 2.

God Of Rage XXX by Centurion Labz Features: 60mg DMAA 20mg Higenamine 1g Agmatine 2.5g Beta Alanine 3g Creatine And more… 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!

High Energy With DMHA 1. Excelsior by Imperial Nutrition Features: DMHACaffeineBitter Orange ExtractBauhinea PurpureaHawthorne ExtractOctopamine You’ve heard or may have even tried the original Craze and realized nothing can match up to it.Even though there was something in there that shouldn’t have been, people are still demanding it and would literally do anything to get more of it.Here we have the best thing that can match or possibly even replace what Craze once offered…Excelsior is a hard hitting pre workout that does not depend on caffeine at all.Its formula consists of DMHA, bitter orange and a couple other ingredients to ensure the rest of the formula hits hard without any nasty side effects like elevated blood pressure.The overwhelming motivated feeling that comes from Excelsior reminds us much of Craze so try this if you’ve been searching for a pre workout that can deliver. Pros Long lasting energyCompares to Craze v1Increases focus similarly to the original CrazeProduces an overwhelming feeling of energy and motivationVarious stimulants without being overly dependent on caffeine Cons Limited availability Giant prop blend Check It Out 2.

Hydrazine by Hydrapharm Features: DMHABauhinia Purpurea ExtractCacao ExtractCymbidium Georingii Extract (Orchilean) Hydrazine is the answer to all pre workouts (Especially if you want something that isn't overloaded on caffeine!).Just like Excelsior, it uses DMHA and a few of the same ingredients to enhance focus and energy beyond anything else you’ve tried.A lot of the reviewers are comparing this pre workout to the original Craze, which is a good thing if you’re looking for something overpowering and gives off some tunnel focus.While the euphoria isn’t as strong as Craze, the motivation and focus is way up there at the same level.It is pill based but it is well worth it as there’s really nothing like it. Pros Laser-like focus and long lasting energyIncreases motivation and enhances mood similarly to Craze v1Overpowering feeling and doesn’t even depend on caffeineIncreases pumps and vasodilation indirectly Cons Prop blendGiant prop blend Check It Out Convict by Condemned Labz Features: 4g Citrulline 2.5g Beta Alanine 500mg L-Tyrosine 300mg Caffeine Anhydrous 225mg 2-Aminoisoheptane (DMHA) 50mg Higenamine 50mg Noopept 15mg Grains of Paradise (Paradoxine) 5mg Bioperine 3mg Yohimbine HCL If you like DMHA then you will surely want to try this pre workout. Convict is packed with 225mg of the hard hitting stuff and packs a mean formula that’ll get you rocking and motivated. It isn’t only packed with stimulants though, it also has properly dosed ergogenics as well such as 4g citrulline, 2.5g beta alanine and more. Everything in here will surely enhance your performance from the first set to the last.If you’re looking for a hard hitting pre workout, Convict is one to try. Pros thumbs-up Packs the most DMHA in a single scoop (225mg) thumbs-up Full dosages ranging from citrulline and more thumbs-up Long lasting effects thumbs-up Paradoxine included to increase fat metabolismCons thumbs-down Only available at one or two retailers thumbs-down Pricey compared to most pre workouts Check It Out 5.

Pros Strong focus and energy Big dose of DMHA (200mg) Increases motivation and mood Full of nitric oxide boosters and stimulants Cons Some ingredients need time to work (beta alanine) Check It Out 6. Giant Riot by Giant Sports Features: 185mg DMHA40mg Bai Mudan White Tea (Camelia Sinensis300mg Caffeine3g Citrulline1.6g Beta Alanine1g Taurine1g Agmatine Sulfate It’s the right name for the right pre workout.Giant Riot is one of the best DMHA-containing pre workouts, if not, the best as it contains something the other pre workout does not and that’s white tea.The white tea in here comes from Bai Mudan, and it’s derived from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis.Just like green tea, it contains catechin which leads to some decent lipolytic actions.For long lasting and hard hitting energy, try out Giant Riot as it’ll get your gears grinding better than any other DMHA based pre workout can. Pros Increases energy and mood Maximum caffeine dosage (300mg) Smooth and long lasting Enhances pump and vasodilation Strong thermogenic effects (catechin content in white tea) Cons Only 1.6g beta alanine (needs time to saturate even if it’s the full 3.2g dose) Check It Out 7. DVST8 White Cut by Inspired Nutraceuticals DVST8 has earned a solid reputation after being released not too long ago.This is packed with goods that'll help you not only pack on mass but increase your energy like no tomorrow. The beta alanine in here will have you feeling tingly and the betaine anhydrous for more strength and power output. You'll have limitless like endurance and nitric oxide as every 2 scoops has 6 grams of citrulline malate and 2 grams taurine. The stimulants are in a prop blend but they range from 2-Aminoisoheptane (DMHA) to bitter orange and more.Compared to Pre Kaged and Pre Jym, DVST8 is the more energized version of them both.

DVST8 Crimson by Inspired Nutraceuticals If you've heard of DVST8 then you'll know they mean business. With their latest pre workout, Crimson, it's probably going to blow a lot of people away. Literally.It contains 400mg caffeine, DMHA, and a bunch of nootropics.Even if you're stim-tolerant, you'll want to start at half a scoop as it tops more than 300mg of caffeine with DMHA and a few other stims. If you don't feel like jumping off walls after taking this one, then you should consider taking a super long stimulant break.

High Energy With EphedraEphedra is some strong stuff when it comes to energy and thermogenic effects. Here we have the best stuff with ephedra... HellFire EPH 150 by Innovative Labs Ain't it nice when something this strong comes in a tiny capsule?Hellfire is something that is as strong as it appears and it's appropriately named. This powerful fat burner is designed to turn up the heat in your body, while increasing energy and focus like never before. It may look like hype, but this is not only packing DMAA, it also has the most amount of ephedra we've ever seen. HellFire packs 150mg ephedra, 150mg caffeine and much more. Its 235mg blend of strong stimulants will get you in the zone fairly quickly.All of these doses are in one single doses and Innovative Labs warn that should not take more than 3 capsules in a 24 period.In fact, you'll be perfectly hyped with 1 capsule, maybe 2 but anymore than that and you'll just be anxious and jittery.Pop one of these capsules either with or without a nitric oxide supplement (perfect as most N.O. supplements don't have caffeine) and you'll have a pre workout stack better than 99% of the stuff out there.Save 5% by using this coupon: fitfrek Pros 150mg ephedraHarsh hitting energy and focusBurns fat and increases thermogenesisPerfectly stackable with any non-stim N.O. supplement Cons Prop blend (DMAA dosage unknown) Check It Out Strongest Pill Form Pre WorkoutsSometimes you just need the convenience right?Pill form pre workouts are almost always as effective as the powders, but usually contain only a few ergonomic ingredients and mostly stims (pills can only fit so much).So let's jump right to it...1. King Cobra by Blackstone Labs Key Features: Trixanthin Complex 375mg (Ilex Guayusa, green tea extract, theobroma cacao)Eria Jarensis 150mgParadoxine (300mg)Erythropalum scandens (50mg)1,3 Dimethylamylamine HCl (45mg)Citrus Aurantium (42.5mg) (25mg synephrine)Yohimbe Extract (22mg)CapsimaxBioPerine Strong deal alert: Get King Cobra for $35 each while it's on buy one get one 50% off and use coupon code 17WEEKEND13. You can forget about having low energy and focus.King Cobra is packed with both eria jarensis and DMAA so even if you’re on the strictest diet and cutting phase, you’ll feel at your peak with this fat burner.Containing everything from the fat burning stimulants like synephrine, Yohimbe and green tea, you won’t only be metabolizing fat but you’ll also be decreasing your appetite with the help of CapsiMax and Paradoxine.Now this may not be your typical pre workout formula, but if you have this prior to your workout, you’ll be at the top of your mental and physical game.DMAA and eria jarensis will have you feeling motivated and feeling good as these are both very stimulating stimulants.Compare this with Kraken, which has 50mg more eria jarensis but no DMAA so this should have you feeling much more of an energy rush.This could be combined with another pre workout but you should be careful not to use more than 75mg DMAA, and 300mg caffeine (and other stimulants) all together. Pros Strong blend of stimulants (45mg DMAA, 150mg eria jarensis, 200mg caffeine)One pill serving for maximum dosages (2nd serving can be taken 6-8 hours after the first dosage)Includes both DMAA and eria jarensisUses both Capsimax and Paradoxine for increased thermogenesisUnique blend of strong stimulants and fat burning ingredientsPrevents fat storage and uses fat as energyEnhances mood and energy60 day serving if you only use one capsule Cons Some prop blends Check It Out 2. Hellfire by Innovative Labs DMAA, ephedra extracts, yohimbine, evodiamine and much more... Can this get any better?Hellfire will blow fat away, forcibly, while turning your metabolism into a super heated burning machine.This is one of the strongest fat burners, and it's great as a pre workout so you can go insane on your sets and reps. Hi-Tech made sure that since they bought out Innovative Labs (the ones that brought you the pre workout called Wicked), that they kept the same original formula but only adding DMAA to it.Hellfire is surely not your average pre workout, and definitely not to be used by beginners or people who've never taken stimulants even. Pros Fully dosed at 2 pills (don't take both at the same time)Prop blend of DMAA 150mg Ephedra extractStrong formula for all day fat burning and energy Cons Hard to find Check It Out 3. Lipodrene Hardcore by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Hi-Tech is fighting hard to keep DMAA widely available to consumers, and they are going all the way by creating most hardcore fat burner... Lipodrene Hardcore.This fat burner has many stimulants and they are all dosed heavily. Even though it only has 200mg of caffeine, you'll never want to take more than 3 pills in a 24 hour period (this is only for stimulant experts!).Lipodrene Hardcore is the evolved and more stimulant heavy version of the original Lipodrene. Check It Out 4. Lipodrene Elite by Hi-Tech Pharmaceuticals Hi-Tech is taking it to the next level by not only having a hefty dose of DMAA but coca leaves as well. Lipodrene Elite contains Erythroxylum coca, a extract which has been used for thousands of years to decrease appetite and fatigue. While this fresh stimulant is derived from the same plant as cocaine, it's completely cocaine-free, completely legal (Most likely the same extract filed in US Patent 4956429) but proven to work well for weight loss with absolutely no tolerance build up.(Use this coupon code for 5% off: FITFREK) Check It Out 5. Black Mamba Hyperrush by Innovative Labs If you've ever wanted to be stimmed to the point where you've got no choice but to move, then you'll like Black Mamba Hyperrush. This fat burner takes it to the extreme by having a big 65mg dosage of ephedra along with 150mg PEA alkaloids, DMAA and eria jarensis. All of this in one small but strong fat burner. Hyperrush has the hardest hitting stimulants so you probably should avoid this if you've never taken anything like this before. We're not sure of the DMAA and eria jarensis dosage because of the prop blends but it's safe to assume that they are both around 30 to 60mg. Check It Out 6. Dexaprine by iForce Nutrition Dexaprine has all kinds of awesome stuff that'll help you shred fat from the very beginning of the day to the end.While yes, this is a fat burner, it's a super effective pre workout as it has DMAA, caffeine, bitter orange and theophylline (green tea extract).This is the original formula that everyone is chasing after...Some say that they sometimes get a little too much energy but that's understandable since it is just packed with strong stimulants. Even women are taking this (as they can take any supplement with maybe some adjustments to dosing) and are praising it for it's all day energy and focus. It's at the upper limit of DMAA at 65mg but containing the perfect amount of caffeine at 250mg.And that's at one pill (don't exceed 1 serving per 6-8 hours). If you need 2 a day, then you better ease off stimulants for a good week or more. Dexaprine is literally one of the best pill based pre workouts out there today. Pros Fully dosed at 1 pill65mg DMAA and 250mg caffeineMostly disclosed ingredientsAll day, strong energy and fat burning Cons Hard to find Check It Out 7. Hydrazine by Hydrapharm Hydrazine is literally one of the best pre workout's out there.It's often compared to the OG Craze and we've heard, but not confirmed, that Hydrapharm has a pretty tight relationship with Driven Sports, which isn't surprising to us!Now you don't want to depend your health on this but if you're on this strongest pre workout list, you probably don't care much anyway. This formula, like Frenzy and Craze, doesn't depend solely on caffeine for energy.Like Craze, it uses an orchid extract called Cymbidium Goeringii, which is suppose to work as an stimulant but there isn't any evidence to back this up. One cap would be enough but you will surely enjoy two if you're looking for something strong.The best part is that there virtually is no crash with Hydrazine...

Literally. We've had multiple tubs of Frenzy and it always provides that same aggressive / motivational-like fuel.You'll feel like you're 18 again and have the same motivational, beast-like hunger you've had when you first 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.We'll be the first to admit, advanced bodybuilders will laugh at the formula but mistake it not, as it's a very strong, stim-concentrated pre that is not made for the weak.With 140 reviews and a 96% rating, there’s no way that everyone can be wrong about this pre workout.Combine Frenzy with Craze v2 for limitless focus and endurance (but nothing compares to the original Craze, believe us).

Bloodshr3d takes caffeine and it's exotic stimulants that the company uses in many of it's supplements, and packs it into one. This powerful fat burning pre workout has hefty doses of Eria Jarensis and J.Regia, both exotic and strong stims.Featuring a full gram of green coffee, it's extracted for Chlorogenic acid, which has been found to stimulate free fatty acids and increase insulin resistance to help pack a punch in losing weight. It also has sophora japonica, a extract used as a herbal remedy to help fight off fat by stimulating glucose uptake and oxidation of fats.With only 250mg of caffeine, you'll likely be energized from the extreme energy blend which not only features a DMAA alternative, 2-amino-5 but also eria jarensis which is packed with a number of PEA type of ingredients. The energy here is long lasting, it's mixed with a nice flow of eurphoria to keep your mood up and high. The war edition doesn't have alpha-yohimbine, while the raw edition contains 6mg of it which is a pretty big amount!

All you need is one scoop of this and you'll be rushing towards the weights like it's your first time lifting. Some even recommend that you have some tolerance towards caffeine as this is strong stuff. Every scoop has 25mg of DMAA and 100mg of caffeine, so you can easily take 2 scoops without worrying about OD'ing on stimulants. Read our review on it here. Pros Clone of legendary Jack3d by USP Labs25mg of DMAA and 100mg of caffeine (can take multiple scoops but will get expensive)Creatine nitrate and agmatine for pumps Cons Prop blends Check It Out Wicked DMAA by Innovative Labs Who said DMAA is leaving supplements?Wicked is embracing this stimulant and packs a punch by adding 70mg of it, along with 300mg caffeine, nitrates and a whole bunch more. This has more DMAA than one of the more popular selling pre workouts Mesomorph, but doesn't pack as much. The combination of DMAA, caffeine and alpha-yohimbine should bring a serious flow of focus and energy to your training.

It also has 2.5 grams of beta alanine, 1 gram of agmatine and a nice mix of stimulants and focus boosting ingredients to keep you energized while staying in the zone. You'd never find a pre workout like this on Amazon as it has DMAA. All you need is one scoop and you'll be in for some nasty pumps, energy and focus. You'll probably workout as if it was your last time ever.If you're finding yourself snoozing or unable to focus, you'll definitely love Dust Extreme. There's plenty of DMAA based pre workouts so you have plenty of options, but if you want something strong, Dust Extreme will do. Pros Tunnel-like focusHigh energyGood amount of N.O. boostersGood balance of stimulants for long lasting mental supportCan take half a scoop to make it last 60 workouts Cons Not for beginners (or those who can barely handle 2 cups of coffee) Check It Out God Of Rage XXX by Centurion Labz You've probably never come across a name like this for a pre workout.

Superpump 250 (DMAA) by Gaspari If you've ever tried the original Superpump 250, then you'd certainly know that Gaspari hasn't really put out anything as epic ever since...But luckily for us, we've witnessed the resurrection of their wicked Superpump and it really might just be the best pre workout Gaspari has put out...

There's this gap that's only been filled by a few supplements, namely Mesomorph, Hydrazine, Frenzy, and now out comes this one...Excelsior contains a unique blend of ingredients that does not relay on caffeine. It has DMHA, Bauhinea Purpurea (think OxyElite), Hawthorne extract, Bitter Orange, caffeine and citrulline for pump support.

Don't worry so much about tingles as you only get 1.9 grams of beta-alanine in every 3 grams of Beta-O. For a further performance boost, there's 4 grams of pure citrulline, 2 grams of glycerol powder and a full gram of agmatine. Pumps and nitric oxide is surely going to be high after taking Hypermax.For energy, it has b-phenylethylamine HCL, for a nice rush of energy. And you also get 325mg caffeine, eria jarensis, hordenine HCL, bitter orange as well as rauwolfia vomitoria extract for a furuther boost in energy.

The formula is complete with BCAA's, A-Z vitamins, minerals and protein, not to mention the hard hitting stimulants and fasting digesting protein. This is the perfect pre workout as it ensures you're getting the basics right before your workout. There's only 100mg caffeine but don't be fooled as this is still a one scooper since it also contains 65mg DMAA and 25mg ephedra. Most of the energy will come from DMAA, while it is nice having ephedra it just isn't the same without ephedrine. Overall this is a powerful pre workout that can replace your multivitamins as it covers your foundation for the perfect training session.

Total War by RedCon1 Here's a pre workout that lives up to its name. RedCon1 is one of the strongest pre workouts out there.It manages this by containing multiple stimulants at high dosages while keeping caffeine at a moderate 250mg dose. While we all know caffeine gives a great energy kick, it's not the only stimulant out there.Total War is one of the few pre workouts that contain DMHA, Eria Jarenesis, and a bunch of strong stimulants while keeping a 100% transparent label. It contains 100mg DMHA, 125mg Jarensis extract, 50mg theobroma cocoa extract, 25mg higenmine and finally 2mg alpha-yohimbine.

Hydrazine by Hydrapharm Hydrazine just moved way up this list. This is the best Craze alternative thus far...Hydrazine is one of the only pre workouts that is considered to be as strong as the OG Craze.Believe us when we say that this definitely gives a strong kick in the ass!This formula, like Craze and Frenzy, does not depend on caffeine. In fact, it uses an orchid extract (sound familiar?) called cymbidium goeringii as well as DMHA (Kigelia Africana).The best part about this pre workout is that there's virtually no crash. The only reason why this isn't at the number 1 spot is because it isn't so much as a "hard hitter" like a DMAA-based pre workout would deliver. The tunnel focus is unreal here though and it does deliver a little euphoria (not as much as Craze) and energy that can only remind you of what a great pre workout can do...

Pros Increases energy and moodMaximum caffeine dosage (300mg)Smooth and long lastingEnhances pump and vasodilationStrong thermogenic effects (catechin content in white tea) Cons Only 1.6g beta alanine (needs time to saturate even if it’s the full 3.2g dose) Check It Out 3.

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 BoostersWe 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 EnergyWhile 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.)Pros thumbs-up 5 stimulants for maximum energy and focus. thumbs-up Uses some new and never used before patented ingredients (like ST1M-X and Vaso6) thumbs-up Enhances and prolongs the pump for long periods of time. thumbs-up True one scooper and is affordable. thumbs-up Concentrated pre workout but still contains large doses for pumps and energy.

If there was a smoother version of Mesomorph with long lasting energy, with no sign of crashing, then Kraken would be it.Currently no pre workout contains more DMHA than Kraken so give it a try. Pros Intense energy and focusDMAA alternative (DMHA)Full dosages of nitric oxide boostersFully disclosed labelIncreased endurance and performanceTrue one scooper Cons Not available everywhere Check It Out 1.

Get it as quanities are in limited quantities and will be replaced with the stimulant Senegalia Berlandieri. The most powerful pre workout to date....APS Mesomorph is a pre workout that has multiple stimulants to help smash your personal records.With 15 gram servings(!), it will no doubt increase energy to the maximum, but it also increase motivation, aggression as well as focus.It doesn't only contain 1,3 DMAA but it also has theobromine and naringin for further energy.Balanced Pre Workout With DMAAForget buying extra creatine or beta alanine as they are both dosed high here. There's 3.2g of beta alanine and 3g creatine!Caffeine is dosed at 300mg so you're getting the most per serving here and DMAA is dosed perfectly under the limit of 65mg (any higher and it could elevate blood pressure).Mesomorph also contains creatine nitrate and agmatine for a powerful skin ripping pump. I recommend stacking Mesomorph with Hemavo2 or Gylcergrow with agmatine for ridiculous pumps. If you want something with a moderate dose of DMAA and BCAA's, try out Off The Chain.

Top 10 Strongest Pre Workouts With Standard Stimulants In 2017Here we have the top 10 pre workouts (still in construction!) that don't have exotic stimulants, but are still strong in focus and energy (they are super strong, do not under estimate them..). These are the overall strongest pre workouts with stimulants and possibly some ergogenics. So you're serious about training and want something you can take both long term and is sustainable for your mind and body (because you also may be drug tested so this list is for you).These mass builders give strong energy and focus but will definitely provide the edge you need to enhance not only your mind but your body's performance as well. Caution: Although these pre workouts do not have any DMAA or DMHA, some of them may contain banned substances.If you are drug tested, you will want to check the list of banned substances and compare it against the supplement labels. 10. Bullnox by Betancourt Nutrition See that bull? That describes Bullnox perfectly. If the Hulk had a supplement company and he made a pre workout, this would be it... probably. Bullnox is unlikely to do much to your testosterone levels but it still ignites a mix feeling of anger and frustration.It's strange since most of the ingredients here are probably underdosed. Very few pre's can claim that they have testosterone support, though you shouldn't expect yourself to take cycle support with Bullnox. This literally puts you in the beast mode mindset and drives motivation through the roof.Tolerance can be an issue too though so it's best to take a break from this if you don't find yourself responding to it as you did the first time.

Bang Master Blaster by VPX You miss N.O. Shotgun don't you? Yea sure there's the 5x version or whatever but nothing beats the original, right?Except maybe Bang Master Blaster....What a name right?This pre workout is packed with 350mg of caffeine and a massive list of muscle builders. If this doesn't get you amp'ed up for your workout, I don't know what will.It also has 6 grams of BCAA's, which is especially useful if you train fasted (like first thing in the morning). Pros 6 grams of BCAA's350mg caffeine for energy and alertness6g citrulline malate for pumps and long lasting endurance2.4g beta alanine for endurance and strength Cons Only uses caffeine for energy Check It Out 8. Adrenal Rush V2 by Primeval Labs Adrenal fatigue may be an option, but Adrenal Rush is pre workout that'll have you rushing to the gym. Okay well you need to do work but this pre workout will help push you beyond your mental and physical limits. It contains 250mg caffeine, 50mg L-Methyltramine, 50mg AdvantraZ, 50mg hordenine, and finally a 25mg dose of higenamine. That's quite the list of stims and we haven't even touched the ergogenics like the 3g beta alanine, 1.5g agmatine and more.You'll be heading to pump city with this one, and you may feel a little like a train going full speed for a couple hours. Without DMHA or DMAA, this has to be one of the most effective pre workouts for energy. You may be wondering where all the energy is coming from... AdvantraZ is actually one of the strong stimulants in here and it's made to be a replacement for ephedrine so you can expect a solid source of energy with Adrenal Rush V2. Pros 250mg caffeine, and over 170mg of stimulantsEphedrine alternative (AdvantraZ)3g beta alanine, 1.5g agmatine and taurine for pumps and increased fullness. 100% disclosed and transparent Cons None Check It Out 7. C4 Ultimate by Cellucor We've always like C4 as it's been understood as a simple nitric oxide booster and energy enhancer. But it gets better with C4 Ultimate.This latest version of C4 packs 19 (well >17 grams without fillers) grams of active ingredients that will increase pumps, mass and energy like you've never experienced from any of their versions. For pumps, it has 1.5 grams of creatine nitrate, 6 grams of citrulline malate, 1.5 grams of nitrosigine, and it tops it off with a gram of arginine AKG.Pretty hardcore right?We haven't even got to the best part yet...For energy it has 300mg caffeine, TeaCrine, yohimbine, and a couple of others that you would never see combined in pre workouts. So if you're looking for off the wall energy, powerful pumps and strong nootropics, you'll want to stop looking beyond C4 Ultimate. ProsVarious nitric oxide boostersNootropics for focus and mind to muscle connectionMix of stimulants for long lasting energyMostly disclosed and generously dosed ingredients ConsPrice is highSmall proprietary blend Check It Out 6. Clash by MTS Marc Lobliner has been putting out solid supplements, from protein powders to test boosters, and now it's the newly reformulated Clash. Clash has created a class of it's own by using fully dosed ergogenic ingredients as well as various stimulants to keep the energy going.The pumps alone from Clash is something to brag about as it packs 1.5 grams of agmatine, something we rarely see in a single serving! It also uses 6 grams citrulline for further endurance and N.O. production. Agmatine is included to prolong the pumps and further enhance mood. Marc's pre workout didn't go short on beta alanine either as it packs a full hefty 3.2g dose. (Tingles alert!)Now pumps aside, the energy is fueled and supplied from the 318mg caffeine, 100mg theacrine and N-Methyl-Tyramine. Clash includes 20mg of hordenine, a mild ephedrine alternative, which will help 'prolong' the energy from all of the stimulants. Now if you've ever used a concentrate pre workout, you'll know it may have powered with energy but Clash goes above and beyond as it includes strong muscle builders and N.O. boosters for all-round performance. Think of having a strong supply of energy while primed for growth by having all of the essential ingredients...You'll no doubt get nasty pumps from this! Pros 320mg caffeine, 100mg theacrine and N-Methyltyramine for energy and focusProperly dosed essentials (creatine, betaine anhydrous, beta alanine and more)6g citrulline and 1.5g agmatine for pumps and enhanced performanceEntirely disclosed formula Cons Doesn't need creatine (cheap and can be bought in bulk) Check It Out 5. Edge of Insanity by Psycho Pharma If you've ever taken a pre workout that has you feeling on the edge, then you'll defeinetly like what Edge of Insanity likes to offer. If you like concentrated pre workouts without creatine, and only a bit of agmatine and beta alanine without any idea of the doses because of the prop blends, then this is one for you to try. Edge of Insanity uses 7 different stimulants to get you in a state of high energy and focus. It also uses a couple of ingredients to help with mood and motivation.In short, you'll feel super alert, energized and ready to do flips in between breaking all kinds of PR's in your lifts. Edge of Insanity also uses some fat burning ingredients so this could possibly be your next pre workout / fat burner. While no one knows how much caffeine is in this potent cocktail of stims, our guess is as good as yours.It's safe to assume there's anywhere from 250mg to 350mg of caffeine. Caffeine should always be disclosed so if you're listening Psycho Pharma, do reveal it! ProsIncreases energy and alertness Potent mix of stimulantsFat burning ingredients with some ergogenicsAgmatine for pumpsIncreases euphoria and supports mood Cons Prop blendDoesn't disclose caffeine Check It Out 4. K-XR by VMI Sports It's hard to find a decent pre workout that uses just the right amount of stims. K-XR just crosses that line as it uses 400mg caffeine along with rauwolscine and higenamine.You're not going to be sitting still for a while after you have some of this stuff. There's a bit of beta alanine, L-taurine and theobromine for some performance benefits but you'll mainly be hyped up from all the energy. If you did want to increase pumps you're better off using a separate nitric oxide product like PlasmaJet. But as far as energy and focus goes, you'll be set with K-XR. If you take more than a scoop you'll surely feel some side effects like nauseous and anxiety so stick to one scoop or better yet, take 3/4 to half a scoop and you'll be set on energy. ProsInsane energy increase400mg caffeine with rauwolscine and higenamineVarious nootropics for further focus Cons400mg at one scoop No N.O. boosters Proprietary blend Check It Out 3. Previde by Divided Labs There's nothing more awesome than a pre workout that not only delivers in energy and performance but is also packed with strength and muscle builders. Previde has it all but it only has one weakness.You need to divide up your total doses in half if you want to take advantage of all of the ingredients. Still though, considering most pre workouts are at the same price, this has way more to offer.At 2 scoops, you're getting 350mg caffeine along with 4 more stimulants to keep you amped up with energy.On top of that, you'll get 6 grams of pure citrulline (pure pumps!), 3 grams beta alanine, 1.5g HydroMax and finally 1 full gram of agmatine. Pumps and maximum energy is what you'll get from Previde here. Not to mention the 2.5g betaine, 2g taurine, 300mg AlphaSize and 150mg elevATP for further performance and gains. Luckily there's no creatine as you can always get that cheap and in bulk.This replaces 3 supplements as it is a muscle builder, pump inducer and increases energy. Even at one scoop, this is more effective than most concentrated pre workouts and matches up to fully balanced pre workouts. This is one of the few pre workouts that uses so much stimulants along with performance enhancing ingredients that benefit both gains and energy. Give it a try! Pros3 in 1 pre workout6g pure citrulline and other N.O. boostersOver 4 stimulants for energy and enduranceFull of ergogenic ingredients ConsNeed 2 scoops for full benefits Check It Out 2. Yeah Buddy by Ronnie Coleman Ronnie Coleman is not only 8 time Mr Olympia but he is also a creator of "Yeah Buddy" which contains 6 different stimulants!Does this guy like high numbers or what? Yeah Buddy contains everything from 420mg caffeine (like that number? We do too!), to Theacrine, synephrine, PEA, Yohimbine and much more. While citrulline and beta-alanine is just a little underdosed, there's a nice 500mg dose of agmatine.Yeah Buddy will have you lifting and breaking PR's as if they were peanuts and some more.If for whatever reason, DMAA and DMHA is not your cup of tea, this will be your favorite for a long time to come.Take half a scoop to begin with or you'll find yourself full of anxiety and jitters. You're not going to be sitting still for a while after you have some of this stuff.There's a bit of beta alanine, L-taurine and theobromine for some performance benefits but you'll mainly be hyped up from all the energy.

This pre workout will literally have you shaking with energy, and it might just be too overwhelming for most people.If you're a stim-addict, then you'll definitely feel this. With 400mg of caffeine and more than 10 different stimulants, 51 50 is not for the weak.If you're tired of using various concentrated pre workouts that promise you energy but deliver nothing but an overload of caffeine then this is the choice for you.Rich Piana also has a lighter pre workout for those who just want a performance boost without feeling too over-stimmed.

The Guide To Cycling Pre WorkoutsBefore I say anything, even advanced bodybuilders will opt for a stim-free pre workout as they know it's not about the heart attacks, but more about the gains and performance.The roller coaster of energy is not worth the withdrawals...So this here is a serious matter.Most people will happily go day to day, survive their hectic and stressful lives with stress inducing stimulants. Those stress inducing stimulants will have your heart pumping harder than ever, your stress levels will be higher and you'd certainly be sleep deprived. Now for us bodybuilders, our lives are already full of stress already and though training has us feeling happy, we're not allowing our bodies to get full REM sleep cycles.So when it comes to cycling supplements, you should most certainly be cycling pre workouts (with stimulants).Creatine does not need to be loaded nor cycled, but you need to take 3-5 grams a day for proper maintenance. Should You Cycle Stimulants?Most certainly yes.Remember the first time you took your first pre workout? Maybe it barely had stimulants, but it certainly had you jumping from one set to the next with barely any rest.And after months and months of sipping on pwo's, you've got yourself asking..."Why isn't it working as well as it did the first time? Should I be switching pre workouts?"And there begins the hardcore stim user who is soon asking what's stronger than Mr. Hyde and why C4 is the worst pre out there. Tolerance. It ain't pretty.Most people don't read into the labels of pre workouts but they clearly state "do not use more than 4-6 weeks".They don't mean don't use "Mr Hyde" for more than 4-6 weeks, they mean lay off the stims!What happens when you need more than 300mg of caffeine?It's just not sustainable...How Should You Start Cycling?A simple 1 to 2 week off stimulants will have you feeling amped when you have your pre workout again. It takes 24 to 48 hours for the withdrawals to start, and it hits its peak at around 4 days.So really if you only take your pre workout 2-3 times a week, and assuming it's got moderate stimulants (less than 300mg of caffeine and less than 50mg of other stimulants generally), you should be okay for up to 8 weeks.But if you're taking stim-heavy pre workouts 3-4 times a week with coffee / other stimulants and haven't taken a break for more than 4 weeks, then it's truly time to take a 1-2 week break.This really needs an article on it's own as this is general advice.Bottom line is if you want your pre workouts to hit hard for those demanding workouts, then you need to use those pre workouts only for those sessions. Try using a stim-free pre workout as that will still have strong performance enhancing ingredients.You can still use a bit of caffeine (50mg to 150mg) if you're truly sluggish without it.What Does The Future Hold For Pre Workouts?These types of pre workouts will always have their place in the industry. But I can see a shift from caffeine to other stimulants.Caffeine is overrated and Craze (though possibly contained ETH) and many other pre workouts has proved that to us.Check out the best pre workouts for muscle gains if you're sick of stimmed up pre workouts.Leave a comment below, let me know what you think of these pre workouts or if I missed any...
