They say once you train with a pre-workout, you'll never train without one! Especially on a leg day anyway.
Pre-workouts have become the "secret ingredient" in the gym. Giving you that massive boost of energy and focus required to push through those insane last few reps, stimulating your muscle fibres for maximum muscle growth.
We've seen our fair share of pre-workouts come and go over the years. Some have become a staple and have remained an original and unchanged favourite for the active gym goer, while others have either disappeared entirely or have had to be reformulated due to extremely powerful ingredients that have become banned in Australia.
As of writing this article in the Spring of 2020, here is the latest snapshot of the current best of the best, most powerful pre-workouts this year according to Protein King!
It's high stimulant...of course! Contains a laser-like focus nootropic, while providing skin splitting pumps, with zero crash and no fluid gains. Eleven potent and fully-disclosed and actively-dosed ingredients is always a win. Yes, English walnut is in this, and it is hectic! Take a half dose to assess your tolerance before taking a full scoop. This is no joke!
I couldn't have come up with a more to the point name for a pre-workout myself. This is packing almost 900mg of stimulants per scoop... holy s#$%. Extreme energy, 100% transparent label / zero proprietary blends. This is really not designed for first time users so you might want to work your way up to this one after you have tried several "less insane" pre-workouts.
This has been quite a favourite amongst our customers, with a full 30 serves per bottle and eight different flavours to choose from. Great for both men and women, it claims to improve workout performance, promote accelerated recovery, and boost energy, strength and pumps.
We are big fans of International Protein brand, with its very high reputation of quality products, and of course they are an Aussie brand. Nevertheless, with strict TGA rules in place, not many Australian brands have been able to release any pre-workouts even remotely close to the performance of their American counterparts… until now! This pre-workout is a high-stim, fully-disclosed label of 30 serves and has the ever popular English walnut extract as well, combined with a host of other ingredients that will certainly blow your socks off.
Dust X promises long lasting energy and sleeve splitting pumps and we think this is pretty much right on the money there. 25 serves per tub and a very nice (and transparent) line up of powerful ingredients, we give this pre-workout the number 5 spot on our list of the best pre-workouts for 2020.
