CHEST

Force Element Performance Warning Order

WarningOrder

Effect Highlights:

  • Exceptional Muscular Power
  • Ridiculous Muscle Pump
  • Impressive Muscular Endurance

Formula Highlights:

  • Betaine / PeakO2™ Combo
  • VASO6™
  • Massive dose of Dynamine™

But Why?

When it comes to training chest there are 3 factors we want to cover; Muscular Power to move that lightweight like bags of feathers, Muscular Endurance to get that volume in and, of course, Muscle Pumps… for the pumps!! Unlike some body parts where the pump can sometimes be a hindrance to our training, chest training is all about getting that pump. Force Element Performance’s Warning Order comes through on covering those factors with flying colours! Muscular Power and Endurance being addressed by the L-Citrulline Malate, Betaine Anhydrous & PeakO2™ all in full clinical dosing. Muscle Pumps being covered by the Citrulline again and the addition of a full clinical dose of VASO6™. We can't overlook the energy with a whopping dose of Dynamine™ providing that instant energy and increased alertness and then being paired with Caffeine and TeaCrine® for the best possible combination of energy on the market. With a little Choline and Huperzine A being thrown into the mix for improved mood and focus… Force Element Performance has our vote as ‘The BEST Chest Day Pre-Workout!


BACK

Primeval Labs MEGA Pre Black

MegaPre

Effect Highlights:

  • Impressive Muscular Power
  • Intense Fast Acting Energy
  • Comprehensive Stimulant Blend

Formula Highlights:

  • Huge dose of Dynamine™
  • ElevATP® / Betaine Combo
  • 7 ingredient energy & focus blend

But Why?

When it comes to training back, finding the right pre-workout can be a bit of a balancing act. You want power, endurance & energy but at the same time, you don’t want ridiculous muscle pumps. Don’t get it wrong, we love walking around with our lats blown up that we look like we’re carrying a basketball under each arm… but too much pump can be a hindrance. Too much pump can ruin our ability to maintain a strong mind-muscle connection. Primeval Mega Pre Black delivers on this balance starting with a very strong muscular power blend of Betaine Anhydrous and ElevATP®, both in a full clinical dose. Endurance is covered by L-Citrulline, Beta Alanine and, to a lesser degree, Norvaline. Now, these are also your pump ingredients, and while you notice the increased pump, even with the most intense supersets you never lose that mind-muscle connection. That could also be thanks to the impressive energy / focus blend in Mega Pre Black. Dynamine™, Caffeine, Infinergy®, N-Methyltyramine and Hordenine come together to create an insane cocktail of energy while Choline and Huperzine A come in to help dial all that energy towards the weights. Primeval Labs Mega Pre Black has our vote as ‘The BEST Back Day Pre-Workout!


SHOULDERS

Core Nutritionals FURY-X

FuryX

Effect Highlights:

  • Infinite Energy
  • All the Muscular Power
  • Delicious Muscle Pumps

Formula Highlights:

  • Dynamine™ / TeaCrine® Combo
  • Creatine & Betaine Nitrate (as NO3-T®)
  • L-Citrulline, HydroMax® & Nitrate Combo

But Why?

Shoulders are an interesting body part, and not just from a purely biomechanical point of view. When it comes to training them it's really about balance. Power & energy for pressing movements, but then the mind muscle connection for your raises, pulls and any movement when you’re trying to isolate a particular head of the muscle. When picking a pre-workout, you need to keep all this in mind. Core FURY X has energy on lock, we’ve got our favourite Dynamine™, TeaCrine® and Caffeine coming together in some of the largest doses we’ve seen to provide energy that comes on fast but never leaves! Throw in a large dose of Choline & L-Tyrosine and we’ve got more mental alertness, focus & energy than we know what to do with. From a physical performance point of you, muscular power being supplied with Creatine Monohydrate & Betaine Nitrate. Muscle pumps are then supported by L-Citrulline and HydroMax®, paired with the Nitrate element of Betaine Nitrate. This combo brings some of the BEST muscle pumps we have experienced from a stand-alone pre-workout, perfect to blow those delts up. All of this put together puts Core Nutritionals FURY X with our vote as ‘The BEST Shoulder Day Pre-Workout!


LEGS

  • Long Lasting Energy
  • All the Muscular Power
  • Mental & Physical Endurance

But Why?

Leg Day… let me say that again… LEG DAY! Whether you love it or hate it, embrace it or dread it; leg day for us always gets special attention when it comes to selecting the right pre-workout to use. You need energy, you need power, you need endurance, some focus really helps but the one thing you don’t want is too much pump. Some is perfect but there's a fine line between some and too much that your legs ache and you feel like 1 more rep might bust the skin. Red, White & Boom has Leg Day on lock! Let's start with the energy, we’ve got massive doses of TeaCrine® and Caffeine coming together to provide endless energy! Add in one of the largest doses of L-Tyrosine & Choline we have seen and we’ve got that mental alertness & focus you need to survive this workout. Onto physical performance now, muscular power being supplied with Creatine Monohydrate and muscular endurance is then supported by Beta-Alanine… both at complete clinical dose! All of this combined puts ‘Merica Labz Red, White & Boom as our vote for ‘The BEST Leg Day Pre-Workout!


ARMS

Sparta Nutrition Kraken

Kraken

Effect Highlights:

  • Fast & Long Lasting Energy
  • Perfect Selfie Pump
  • All-Round Well Balanced Effects

Formula Highlights:

  • VASO6™ / HydroMax® Combo
  • TeaCrine®
  • 250mg Caffeine

But Why?

Lets be real here, arms are one of the easiest body parts to train… mainly because they are so much fun to train. But that doesn’t mean the choice of pre-workout gets any less consideration. Biceps and Triceps, similar to Back and Legs, can be more difficult to train with ‘too much’ pump! I know I know, you’ve probably just thrown your phone or laptop away… easy tiger. Too much pump and you lose that ability to initiate the movement with the right muscle and your range of motion will shorten (ever try touching your right shoulder with your right hand…?) Enter Sparta Nutrition Kraken, here we have a pre-workout that really ticks all the features you want for Arm Day. Caffeine, Theobromine, N-Methyl L-Tyramine and your Cocoa Seed Extract give you some really strong energy and then the TeaCrine® ensures that we don’t get dropped from this high of energy. Throw in some N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine for some mental focus and you’ve got yourself a nice cocktail of energy, alertness and focus! Muscular Endurance is covered by Beta Alanine & Taurine and they do a great job of it! Now onto the muscle pumps, the fun stuff! L-Citrulline, HydroMax® & VASO6™ come together, in impressive dosages, to provide one hell of an arm pump! Like really… you don't mess around with arm pump and Kraken brings the A-game! Just be sure to suss the gym lighting as you’re training to get that post-session selfie. All of this thrown together gives Sparta Nutrition Kraken our vote as ‘The BEST Arm Day Pre-Workout!
