TOP 10 PRE-WORKOUT SUPPLEMENTS FOR 2018
…Focus and Intensity are the Name of the Game
Whether your workout starts when you walk into the gym, hit the track, or step on the field, you better bring the energy and intensity. The greatest athletes always leave everything on the field, and each workout should be no different. Pre-workouts have long been considered a bread and butter supplement for many athletes specifically for this purpose, bringing the heightened energy, focus, pumps, and intensity that they crave. The best of the best in this category are sought after for their ability to take users to the next level and power through the competition.
In late 2017 the industry was completely rocked, losing one its favorite ingredients. With the DMAA scandal that stripped many top products from the shelves, only the greatest contenders survived to grace the Top 10 in 2018. Surprisingly, many of them are making repeat appearances from years past, with the ban providing customers more reason to give them a try and discover why they have consistently ranked at the top.
It’s also opened the doors for new products to break onto the scene, and there a quite a few that made the list. Hard Rock Supplements, Psycho Pharma, and Redcon1 all stormed the market with their newest pre-workouts, each providing a hefty dose of stimulants as well as other potent ingredients that range from enhancing intensity and endurance to elevating mood.
But the latest innovation to sweep the market now that DMAA is out is the Nootropic category, which had never been seen before in the pre-workout category. These cognitive enhancers bring a completely new mental intensity to the game that until now was reserved only for your best training days. The new king of the Top 10 Pre-Workouts for 2018 features two such ingredients, and after reaching number one in record time remains the formula to beat.
Ranked by repeat sales, customer reviews and our Pro Support Staff’s experience using the supplements plus guidance and discussions with customers we proudly announce the TOP 10 Pre-Workout Supplements for 2018, Winter Edition. We had a few new manufacturers bring pre-workout products to market this season, however, after the data was tallied the leadership was evident. Strong Supplement Shop is one of the largest suppliers of these products worldwide and this list represents the Industry’s Best in Class.
The Top 10 is based on:
- Repeat Sales – So loved users buy them again & again voting with their wallets (the most powerful vote of all) – when a customer repeats a purchase of the same product it is a positive the product works. Many of the pre-workouts on this list are purchased month after month by lots of customers.
- Feedback from customers – their reviews and phone discussions – see for yourself you can read the reviews on the store site.
- Logger results – documented results from Bodybuilders, Athletes and Fitness Models who used the supplements and reported their results and experience.
- Our Pro Support Team’s own experience in discussions with customers who use them as well as their experience if they used the pre-workout themselves.
NO. 1 WILD THING by Assault Labs
It was clear Wild Thing was destined for the #1 spot. Hitting the scene in 2016, it raced to the top of the pack, amassing an overwhelming amount of positive feedback and customer repurchases and when we take a closer look, it all makes sense why. Wild Thing’s formula goes beyond just stimulants and performance enhancers; it raised the bar on the whole pre-workout category adding in two new ingredients to the pre-workout world from the Nootropic category. Nootropics are cognitive enhancers that give Wild Thing the unique focus component customers are raving about. Also new are the muscle gaining and recovery nutrients rounding up the product’s tag line: “Activates Your Energy and Feeds Your Body”.
