The 10 Best Supplements for Workout
What are the Best Pre-Workout Supplements?
We're compiling here, a list of our highest rated, top 10 pre-workout supplements. These are a category of supplements meant for use before a workout to greatly enhance your energy, stamina, strength, and exercise performance. There are a lot of different supplements made by different companies in this category, and when deciding which is the best pre workout supplement, we base the rankings on 3 factors which are: 1) effectiveness, 2) taste, and 3) value, to get an overall average rating for each. Below we list the top 10 pre workout supplements:
#1: USPlabs Jack3d
Jack3d and Cellucor C4 Extreme tied for first place with the same overall rating of 4.6. Unlike a lot of other workout supplements that contain loads and loads of ingredients and fillers, Jack3d contains only very few ingredients; however, these are a few of the most effective ingredients for boosting exercise performance, and this along with its value makes USPlabs Jack3d a top rated workout product.
#2: MusclePharm Assault
MusclePharm Assault is another highly rated workout supplement that makes good use of beta alanine, citrulline malate, creatine, and several other ingredients to increase strength, reduce fatigue, and enhance endurance. It also contains an interesting ingredient - Suma Root - that you don't see very often. Suma root contains phytochemicals including beta ecdysterone.
#3: Cellucor C4 Extreme
Cellucor C4 another one of our highest rated pre workout supplements that works effectively to increase endurance and stamina. While its taste is not as good as a few other pre-workout supplements, its effectiveness and value are tough to beat. Keep in mind though, that taste is always a subjective matter. The key ingredients in Cellucor C4 are beta alanine, creatine, AAKG, and also an energy blend.
#4: Controlled Labs White Flood
White flood is a pre-workout formula with a very high effectiveness and value rating; however, it's a bit lacking in the taste department. But of course, the judgement on taste is always subjective, and different users will have different taste preferences. Beyond taste, White Flood is a supplement that truly delivers on effectiveness and value.
#5: Infinite Labs Juggernaut
Juggernaut is another pre-workout supplement that contains dicreatine malate, magnesium creatine chelate, beta alanine, caffeine, AAKG, citrulline malate, and also "glyco-core plasma expander". The Glyco-core is simply glycerol, which is a plasma expander. Juggernaut gives a good boost in energy and endurance without the crash of other similar products.
#6: Gaspari SuperPump 250
Superpump 250 has always been a popular and highly rated workout supplement. This is one of those supplements that contains loads and loads of different ingredients. Just take a look at its "proprietary blend" on the label and you'll see what we mean. Aside from all the common ingredients you see in many pre-workout supplements, one of the standout ingredients in SuperPump 250 is Turkesterone. Turkesterone has been found to stimulate protein synthesis, and has similar effects as nerobol, a well known anabolic steroid.
#7: Betancourt BullNox AndroRush
Speaking of supplements jam packed with all types of ingredients, here we have Betancourt BullNox that might even contain more ingredients than Superpump 250. In terms of ingredient count, this is at the end of having extremely high number of ingredients. It contains several different complexes such as strength-endurance, neural energy, cardiovasomuscular dilation, anabolic solidification, and endocrine ignition. Each one of these contain a long list of ingredients.
#8: BSN NO Xplode
NO Xplode has long been a top selling and rather popular workout supplement. It helps increase energy, endurance, strength, and stamina. One of the often talked about effects of NO Xplode is the great pumps it gives users. It does contain some stimulants that could cause side effects such as dizziness, stomach problems, shakiness, and increased heart rate.
#9: Controlled Labs Purple Wraath
Purple Wraath is a bit of a different workout supplement. While it also contains several very common ingredients such as beta alanine and citrulline malate, what makes this different is that it also contains a essential amino acid complex including leucine, valine, isoleucine, lysine, arginine, histidine, threonine, methionine, and phenylalanine.
#10: Cellucor M5 Extreme
To round out our top 10 workout supplements, we have Cellucor M5 Extreme. While Cellucor C4 ranked third up top, M5 Extreme just makes the cut at number 10. M5 contains creatine, AAKG, citrulline malate, caffeine, glucuronolactone, waxy maize, and DMAA (1,3 dimethylamylamine). DMAA is a mild stimulant that helps improve athletic performance; however, it is on the World Anti-doping Agency's prohibited list.
There you have it, our list of the top 10 best rated pre workout supplements. Bear in mind, however, that these rankings are somewhat subjective, and not everyone will agree with it. Something that we rank highly effective here may not work so well for some users, while other similar supplements not ranked here may work very well. However, there's a reason that these are listed here, and as mentioned earlier, they are ranked based on effectiveness, taste, and value.
