The Best Sellers List of 2013
MusclePharm: AssaultAssault is one of the pre-workouts that is geared more towards athleticism overall, and not just bodybuilding. Its pretty high in caffeine, sitting at about the 150mg per half a scoop (which is 1 serving) so it is pretty powerful. Another good part about it is, the 5 grams of Creatine per serving which means you don’t need to take more Creatine on the side. But where I’ve noticed it really pulls ahead is in the endurance. When I used Assault for the first time, I was doing the P90x program which is pretty tough – and I felt a noticeable difference in how hard I could go, and for how long. One last thing to mention, is that I didn’t get a big crash afterwards either, and friends of mine report the same.
Cellucor C4 ExtremeIf you’ve been using a pre-workout supplement within the last year, you’ve MOST likley heard of C4 Extreme. Although C4 Extreme isn’t the strongest pre-workout supplement on the market today, its still close to the top of my favorites list. It has a bit less caffeine that doesn’t go over the “too much” line, and provides a nice clean feel of energy. This can be a nice break from some of the really strong stimulant ones like NO Xplode that make you feel something like a monster. The flavor scores C4 big points as well, I have tasted 4 of the flavors all of which were delicious and mixed perfectly. Good pre-workout overall, and a good place for beginners to get started.
BSN NO Xplode 2.0NO Xplode is definitely one of the strongest pre-workout supplements available. It has high doses of a lot of good ingredients that will really get you up and moving. As I mentioned above, Xplode makes you feel like a monster roaming around the gym with intense energy, and focus. It also has 5 grams of Creatine per serving, so you don’t need to supplement Creatine seperately. This one actually does have electrolytes in the formula, and I didn’t have any problems with a dry mouth. The one down side for me was, the crash that takes place afterwards. In my case, it wasn’t so bad because I’d be going to sleep almost right after the gym on weeknights, but if you work out during the day, be prepared for it. Great workouts – but a crash may follow.
Driven Sports CrazeCraze by Driven Sports is a fairly new pre-workout that has been receiving great reviews from athletes and weekend warriors alike. At first glance, it doesn’t look like it would have too much kick because of the low caffeine levels; but they’ve thrown in a few ingredients known as “Nootropics” which are shown to increase focus and brain function. I wasn’t expecting much when I first tried it, but the focus it gave me was pretty intense, like “tunnel vision”. However, it’s missing a few ingredients that I like to see in my pre-workout like BCAA’s, Beta Alanine, and/or B Vitamins. On the plus side of that is without the Beta Alanine, it won’t make your skin feel itchy which I know some people really dislike. Great for focus, but lacks in the endurance category compared to some competitiors.
