Foundational Ingredients

  • 175 mg of Caffeine from Natural Sources
  • 1.5 g of Carnosyn® Beta-Alanine
  • 3 g of Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate
  • 1.5 g of L-Citrulline Malate

This formula raises the bar by providing you with only what you need to achieve your True Strength™ - made with select banned substance free ingredients, including caffeine from only natural sources (tea and coffee bean) to help dial in mental alertness and sharp focus before you hit the gym. Gold Standard Pre-Workout™ is also made with only premium ingredients including CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine, and German-engineered Creapure® Creatine Monohydrate - one of the industry's most well-known providers of high purity creatine monohydrate. Finally, the Gold Standard of pre-workouts includes L-Citrulline Malate - a precursor to Nitric Oxide (N.O.) synthesis and other ingredients such as AstraGIN® and Acetyl-L-Carnitine HCI to round out this powerful formulation. Beneficial effects from caffeine are obtained with caffeine consumption at doses of 3 mg/kg body weight at least one hour prior to exercise and only if any other caffeine consumption is avoided for at least 12 hours prior to consumption of the product in habitual caffeine consumers. Not recommended to exceed 300mg of caffeine within 24 hours.

Available in options such as Blueberry Lemonade, Watermelon, Pineapple, Green Apple, and Fruit Punch, Gold Standard Pre-Workout™ leaves all other pre-workouts behind on performance AND taste.

  • 8 Pineapple - Exclusive!

First pre I ever tried and I got some boost from it, but looking at other products on the market, this is a disappointment from ON who usually put out great products. Flavour and creatine amount are quite good though (but then again you can add creatine yourself). I won't name drop other products, but I've definitely had better. Gave it to a friend to try. To be fair, it's a good first pre-workout to test. Pineapple flavour is tasty and the caffein and stimulants aren't high at all

This is a great preworkout. It has the right amounts of caffeine, beta alanine, and creatine. Strawberry Lime is the only flavour I get, it's sweet enough to taste good but doesn't get too overpowering.

  • 7 Pineapple - Exclusive!

This stuff works as well as any pre-workout drink. But the pineapple flavor is horrible. I won't throw it away, but I won't order the pineapple again.
