Protein Kings Best Pre-Workout 2014

Protein King’s Best Pre-Workout 2014

The pre-workout category of supplements is extremely popular, with almost every supplement manufacturer offering at least one product to help boost your training. Most pre-workouts come in powder form, and vary greatly between ingredients, doses, serving sizes and flavours.

We have judged the current pre-workouts on the market by these categories: Ingredients, Dosage, Taste and Value for Money, for a score out of 40. So, here are our picks for the Best Pre-Workout 2014.

5 - Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre
Ingredients – 6/10
Dosage – 8/10
Taste – 8/10
Value – 7/10
OVERALL – 29/40

Optimum Nutrition Platinum Pre is a no-nonsense pre-workout supplement containing just a few powerful ingredients at excellent doses. While it lacks the broad range of ingredients found in other pre-workouts, the ingredients included are at excellent amounts – so it’s sure to be one of the most potent products out there.


4 - Arnold Series Iron Pump
Ingredients – 8/10
Dosage – 7/10
Taste – 8/10
Value – 7/10
OVERALL – 30/40

We were worried that the Arnold Series wouldn’t live up to the hype, but we’re happy to say we’ve been surprised! Iron Pump is a good product in an impressive line-up of supplements bearing the big man’s name, and features an intelligent blend of ingredients designed to boost all the factors of successful training. We would have loved to see a slightly larger serving size, but overall, we’re impressed!


3 - Core Nutritionals Core Fury
Ingredients – 8/10
Dosage – 7/10
Taste – 9/10
Value – 7/10
OVERALL – 31/40

Core Fury is an exciting new product to make its way to Australia, and comes straight onto our Best Pre-Workout 2014 list! Core Fury is a good mix of energy boosting ingredients, strength boosters, stamina enhancers and mental performance ingredients. An all-round excellent product.

2 - Axis Labs Sma5h Compound 5
Ingredients – 8/10
Dosage – 7/10
Taste – 8/10
Value – 9/10
OVERALL – 32/40

Axis Labs has impressed us with their effective products so far, and Sma5h Compound 5 comes in a very close second for our Best Pre-Workout 2014. Compound 5 has an excellent array of ingredients, and addresses energy, strength, stamina, pumps and even joints in this comprehensive supplement. Even with the bitter-tasting glycerol monostearate, Sma5h Compound 5 tastes excellent.


1 - Mutant Mayhem
Ingredients – 9/10
Dosage – 8/10
Taste – 8/10
Value – 8/10
OVERALL – 33/40

The Mutant brand has relaunched in Australia and is quickly becoming one of the country’s biggest brands. Mutant Mayhem is a strong contender on this list, with a huge array of ingredients, as well as the biggest serving size on this list. While we don’t know exact doses of each ingredient, we can get a pretty good idea of them from the proprietary blend sizes.

Mutant Mayhem takes our pick for Best Pre-Workout 2014 thanks to an excellent ingredient list, great flavours, decent doses and great value for money!
