I have been using pre-workouts for about 10 years now. And have used everything from Jack3d, to NO-Xplode, to Craze to others…and now I got to test Pre Extreme from Nutrabio. If you hjaven’t read my earlier post, I reviewed their whey protein isolate. Not too sweet…just a great tasting protein. So I was really excited to be able to try their new pre-workout supplement, Pre Extreme.
If you haven’t heard of this company, they have really been blowing up in the last year in the industry. Great products, great taste and effective. If you check out their score on SupplementReviews.com, they have an 8.5…which is actually better than 98% of the companies out there. So they are definitely a contender for top 3 companies in the industry.
Back to the Review
So unlike some of the other pre-workout supplements on the market, this isn’t a concentrate. There are not just 2 or 3 ingredients. This is a potent, powerful ingredient filled pre-workout supplement. And not only that, but it’s a muscle builder as well. You can see the whole ingredient banner here on their website, but I wanted to talk about a few of my favorite ingredients.
- Creatine: Proven to help build muscle and aid in recovery
- Beta Alanine: Helps you bust out more exercises and more reps
- Betaine Anhydrous: More power output over 6 weeks of usage
- Citrulline, Agmatine, Arginine: All my favorite ingredients for pumps and vascularity
Plus a ton of ingredients in here for energy of course, mood and focus. I usually would have to purchase a couple different products in bulk to get what I would get in one scoop of Pre Extreme.
So how well did this work? Well, first…this stuff tastes awesome. I had the watermelon flavor. One of my favorite flavors and they hit it right on the head. I like to sip it on my way to the gym (which is about an hour from work)…and the entire way, no clumps, tasted great. I finished it about 20min before my workout. If you aren’t used to beta alanine, you will start feeling the tingles on your lips and on my body within about 15min of drinking this…I personally love it.
About 10min after I finished drinking it, the energy hit me. I was wide awake and ready to workout. Not jittery at all…it was real, smooth clean energy. Walked into the gym, changed and dove into my back/chest day. It was Monday after all. During my workout, I also drank the IntraBlast by NutraBio (but that will be in another review). I had no problem going through each set, each rep…energy throughout the entire 1hr 30min workout. Never tired. And my favorite of all…the pumps. Chest especially. I had a nice pump throughout the night going home too. The pumps come quickly and definitely stay awhile after. Pre Extreme definitely made the workout easy. Now I still was pretty energized after the workout too, so I wouldn’t expect to just go home and go to bed. This stuff does last. But when it tapers down, it’s not a crash. I crash on things like 1,3 DMAA and Amp Citrate…but nothing on this, which I loved.
I expect that this pre workout will become more popular throughout the year. With the heavy dose of clinical ingredients for pumps, energy and muscle building, it’s a great all-in-one supplement that really everyone should be taking. I give it a 10/10 as their were absolutely no disappointments with taking this…only benefits!
