Pre Jym pre-workout simplified

I know that not everyone likes to read lengthy reviews so for those who don’t here’s a summary of everything you need to know about pre Jym pre-workout.

Pros

  • Transparent product
  • Good experience from numerous people
  • The ingredients aren’t just randomly thrown together and work well with each other
  • Ingredients such as Citrulline Malate have a higher dosage than some other pre-workouts
  • Inclusion of ingredients such as Creatine and BCAAs which means you don’t need to take them separately

Cons

  • 1 serving has 80 calories which are high in the world of pre-workouts
  • The price is on the moderate/high side
  • Potential side effects if you are allergic to beetroot or any other ingredients

Pre Jym pre-workout – how does it work?

Pre Jym pre-workout states some key points that show why their pre-workout is one of the best, if not the best on the market. Let’s go through them and see whether or not these claims stand their ground.

  1. 13 hand-picked ingredients
  2. No proprietary blends
  3. Performance
  4. Growth
  5. Nutrients vs. stimulants
  6. No bs, just science
  1. Aren’t all supplements hand-picked?
  2. This statement holds its ground. If a company is not transparent with the ingredients they use my advice would be to run as far from it as possible.
  3. While doing research many people confirm that pre jym pre-workout consumption resulted in having better performance, which I can also confirm from my experience.
  4. Growth is one of those things that every supplement claims to achieve and 99% of them do. I’m not going to go into great depth regarding this since it is more often than not a subjective thing since everyone can react differently to supplements.

The consumption of the product is rather simple. Just like every pre-workout, you should take a serving of pre jym pre-workout about 30 minutes before you start your workout.

Due to the fact of everyone reacting differently to supplements you might need to test a couple of variations before deciding which works best for you.

Although caffeine and some other ingredients may start working sooner, they will also last longer.

If you want to “double scoop” the product because you are planning an intense workout session you can. The safe way of doing this would be by first taking one scoop of the product and later on taking another one.

I’m sure some of you had troubles with certain pre-workouts not working for you or leaving unwanted side effects. To make sure we minimize the chances of that occurring we’ll go through the main ingredients and look at what they do and whether or not they are safe/beneficial for you.

Core ingredients

As far as the main ingredients go, they are as following:

BCAA-s (6000mg) – they improve muscle retention, endurance, better focus, and promote fat loss.

L-CITRULLINE DL-MALATE (6000mg) – citrulline gets converted by the user’s kidneys into L-Arginine which is an amino acid that boosts your nitric oxide levels resulting in your blood vessels expanding and therefore letting more blood flow through them. The 6000mg seems to be the sweet spot for the Citrulline and that is exactly what pre jym pre-workout offers in each serving.

Caffeine (300mg) – this is an ingredient we are all familiar with. It stimulates us by giving us more energy, awareness, and power output. Some people even use coffee as a pre-workout substitute.

Although coffee can stimulate your senses and give you a better workout pre-workout supplements have other benefits.

TAURINE (1g) – taurine is yet another popular ingredient. If you ever looked at an energy drink ingredient list you definitely noticed this ingredient. There it is used as a way to prevent sudden energy spikes led by crashes. It is also an osmotic agent which means it helps with drawing water into cells.

This is important in the recovery phase as cells with more water in them result in better anabolism and recovery.

Beetroot extract (500mg) – beetroot is known for enhancing anaerobic performance which translates to you having more endurance meaning you can perform better and longer in the gym or any other setting you might find yourself in. 

Together with Citrulline Malate, this ingredient will help your blood vessels expand resulting in more blood flow by boosting your nitric oxide levels.

Creatine Monohydrate(2g) – as well as caffeine and taurine this ingredient is well known to many people. It is often taken by itself. I personally use it on a daily basis. Although it can be found in meat and fish the process of cooking it removes most of it.

For that reason, we take creatine powder by itself or in a combination such as a pre-workout.

The benefits of creatine are the increase of strength and power output during resistance exercise and are also known for improving anaerobic running capacity just like beetroot. Another benefit is an increase in lean mass.

One thing about creatine is that you must drink a lot of water when consuming it as stomach cramping can occur when not enough water is consumed.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine (600mg) – this ingredient’s job is to burn fat, as well as lowering fatigue levels and muscle damage, although lowering the muscle damage is slight.

So in short its job here is mainly to help you burn more fat by increasing your energy levels and in return lead you to being more active.

Betaine (1.5g) – combines well with beetroot. This ingredient results in cell hydration and better pumps during your workout.

Tyrosine (1.5g) – this ingredient helps with keeping you in good mood, as well as keeping your general mental wellbeing. The only downside is that it seems like the amount of Tyrosine in each serving is on the lower side.

Alpha GPC (150mg) – some small case studies have shown that Alpha GPC can increase maximum power and velocity, as well as increasing lower body force.

Toothed clubmoss extract (50mcg) – this ingredient may help you with improving your brain in a way so it can think well or better.

Black pepper extract (5mg) – for the last ingredient we have yet another familiar one. Most of you have encountered black pepper as a spice used in food to enhance its taste.

Here it’s used for piperine, a bioactive compound that has shown to help with nausea, inflammations, and headaches.

Side effects

Although some people may experience side effects when taking pre-workouts all the dosages in pre jym pre-workout are safe and the only thing that may concern a few people are the lower dosage in Tyrosine, although when looking at the grand scale of things it’s not the end of the world.

On the other hand, if you are allergic to any of the mentioned ingredients you should consult with your doctor before taking this pre-workout. Otherwise, this product is completely safe and gets you generally great results.

Some people may be concerned about the caffeine, this as well is dosed safely so it’s nothing to worry about.

Price and where to buy

The price of this product is $38 – $40 plus shipping for 1 package of 20 servings.

With some quick math, we come to the calculation of $1.9 – $2 per without the shipping being taken into consideration.

This is on the higher side regarding bang for your buck and I would personally go for 4 Gauge pre-workout instead.

As to where you can buy this product, well it’s available on most fitness-oriented shops, as well as Amazon and the official site. This is not so great for you since this means the company uses middlemen and therefore the product costs more than it otherwise would.

Conclusion

Pre jym pre-workout proves to be a good pre-workout. Only falling short to 4 gauge and a few other pre-workouts in our opinion. Never the less it’s not a product you are going to buy and instantly regret.

The pre-workout seems to be well-liked by its users and the numerous taste options are a bonus. When you take into consideration how much you pay per serving you could find a cheaper and better alternative such as 4 gauge pre-workout.

It appears that there aren’t any side effects excluding allergic reactions in some individuals. As far as I’m concerned I would rank this product into the top 10 pre-workouts you could buy today.

4 gauge pre-workout simplified

I know that not everyone likes to read lengthy reviews so for those who don’t here’s a summary of everything you need to know about 4 gauge pre-workout.

Pros

  • Transparent product
  • Great experience from numerous people
  • The ingredients aren’t just randomly thrown together and work well with each other
  • Great value when buying the 3+1 pack
  • Inclusion of ingredients such as Creatine which means you don’t need to take them separately

Cons

  • The marketing might seem really Arnold Schwarzenegger like with the shotgun shells and interactive website as well as the punchlines which might be a bad or a good thing, depending on your personality
  • Potential side effects if you are allergic to coconut water or beetroot

4 Gauge pre-workout – how does it work?

4 gauge pre-workout claims to help you with “supplying more ammo to kill those weights” with its 20 servings per package. According to the page of the supplement, it claims to help users in 4 ways.

  1. Explosive power
  2. Laser focus
  3. Extended stamina
  4. Incredible muscle pumps

The consumption of the product is rather simple. Just take a serving of 4 gauge pre-workout 15-45 minutes before you start your workout. You might need to try a couple of different variations to see what time best suits you.

Although caffeine and some other ingredients may start working sooner they will also last longer. If you want to “double scoop” the product because you are planning an intense workout session you can. The safe way of doing that will be first taking one scoop of the product and then later on taking another one.

The ingredients that we’ll mention shortly look promising. And if the company is speaking honestly they really do care about their product working. I’m sure some of you had troubles with certain pre-workouts not working for you or leaving unwanted side effects. The good thing is that 4 gauge doesn’t seem to have them. More on that later.

4 Gauge is available on manufacturer’s website.

Core ingredients

As far as the main ingredients go they are as following:

4 Gauge is available on manufacturer’s website

L-CITRULLINE DL-MALATE (6000mg) – citrulline gets converted by the users’ kidneys into L-Arginine which is an amino acid that boosts your nitric oxide levels resulting in your blood vessels expanding and therefore letting more blood flow through them. The 6000mg seems to be the sweet spot for the Citrulline and that is exactly what 4 gauge pre-workout offers in each serving.

Caffeine (150mg) – this is an ingredient we are all familiar with. It stimulates us by giving us more energy, awareness, and power output. Some people even use coffee as a pre-workout substitute.

Although coffee can stimulate your senses and give you a better workout pre-workout supplements have other benefits. In this case, 4 gauge pre-workout combines caffeine with L-THEANINE(200mg).

The combination offers all the upsides of caffeine with the benefits of L-THEANINE which prolongs the effects of caffeine, calms your mind, and helps you focus on your workout to get the best results out of it.

While we’re on the topic of better workout sessions let’s talk about the next ingredient.

RHODIOLA ROSEA (100mg) – this flower is known to prolong the workout by tackling fatigue and depression as well as building tolerance to anything tough or challenging.

This in turn means you get a better workout because there are fewer chances of you getting demotivated.

Red beet(300mg) – beetroot is known for enhancing anaerobic performance which translates to you having more endurance meaning you can perform better and longer in the gym or any other setting you might find yourself in. 

Together with Citrulline Malate, this ingredient will help your blood vessels expand resulting in more blood flow by boosting your nitric oxide levels.

Creatine Monohydrate(1000mg) – as well as caffeine this ingredient is well known to many people. It is often taken by itself. I personally use it daily. Although it can be found in meat and fish the process of cooking it removes most of it.

For that reason, we take creatine powder by itself or in a combination such as a pre-workout.

The benefits of creatine are the increase of strength and power output during resistance exercise and are also known for improving anaerobic running capacity just like beetroot. Another benefit is an increase in lean mass.

One thing about creatine is that you must drink a lot of water when consuming it as stomach cramping can occur when not enough water is consumed.

Acetyl-L-Carnitine – this ingredient’s job is to burn fat, as well as lowering fatigue levels and muscle damage, although lowering the muscle damage is slight.

So in short its job here is mainly to help you burn more fat by increasing your energy levels and in return lead to you being more active.

Coconut water – this is yet another popular ingredient which most people encountered in their lives.

The coconut water increases your hydration levels and restores your electrolytes that you lose during your intense workout session. It is rich in nutrients and is known to reduce blood pressure.

Side effects

Although some people may experience side effects when taking pre-workouts all the dosages in 4 gauge pre-workout are safe and the only thing that may concern a few people are if you are allergic to so of the ingredients.

If you are allergic to any of them I would advise you to not use this product as it may harm you. Otherwise, this product is completely safe and gets you great results.

Some people may be concerned about the caffeine, this as well is dosed safely so it’s nothing to worry about.

Price and where to buy

The price of this product is $41.52 plus shipping for 1 package. On the other hand, the 3 + 1 combo costs $124.56, and the shipping is free.

With some quick math, this means you only pay $1.557 per serving in the 3 + 1 combo whereas in the 1 package a serving will cost you $2.076 per serving without the shipping being taken into consideration.

I would highly recommend you to buy the 3 + 1 package as it is more bang for your buck.

As to where you can buy this product, well it’s only available on the official site. This is great for you since that means the company doesn’t need any middlemen and therefore the product costs less.

Conclusion

The 4 Gauge pre-workout is one of the best pre-workout out there. The ingredient list is transparent, the company seems to care for its product quality as well as their costumers.

The pre-workout is well-liked by its users and the fruity taste is a bonus. When you take into consideration how much you pay per serving you really can’t go wrong with this supplement.

It appears that there aren’t any side effects excluding allergic reactions in some individuals or any cons to this product which would make you second guess buying it.

As far as I’m concerned I would rank this product into the top 3 pre-workouts you could buy today and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone in the market for a pre-workout.
