Gold Standard Pre-Workout Supplement Review | Spartansuppz


GThis combines simple and effective ingredients suitable to the gold standard name.

Gold Standard pre-workout is an entry-level product from Optimum Nutrition.


Creapure Creatine: 3000mg

Strength and energy for explosive lifting. Simple, well proven and very effective.

Beta-Alanine (Carnosyn): 1500mg

Buffer lactic acid and allow for better performance before reaching failure. Works perfectly with creatine for a dramatic effect.

L-Citrulline Malate: 1500mg

Promotes performance and increased nitric oxide production. This means better pumps and workout performance.

Acetyl L-Carnitine HCL: 375mg

A concentrated form of carnitine for improved mental focus and performance.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine: 250mg

Keeping you balanced and focus for consistent performance throughout your workout. Along with caffeine gold standard, pre-workout provides clean energy and mental focus.

175mg Caffeine:

This is coming from natural sources and provides a clean energy hit without being too crazy.

Astragin: 25mg

Improving uptake of the other ingredients in the formula for maximum effect.

Dosing across most ingredients is pretty good. Not quite 100% of clinical but for an entry-level type product they’re very good.

Energy on this product is also very clean. The naturally sourced caffeine hits a bit harder than normal and is quite fast acting.

The mental focus was also really good and the drive to keep training very strong.

Pumps, to be honest, weren’t all that great. The nitric oxide component of this product is pretty minimal. If you like pumps we’d recommend stacking this with a nitric oxide booster such as Mega Pre.


This is where this product really comes into its own. If you have tried anything from Optimum Nutrition you know they have their flavours down.
This is no exception. Flavours are quite simply delicious and with 5 options available.

Value For Money

Quite simply-best on the market. 30 serves for $34.95 makes this $1.16/serve. When you factor in how much is actually in each serve you realise the value is insane!
