From the company that brought you Crack and Herolean, Dark Labs has now come out with their all-new Flame Pre Workout. Unlike Crack, Flame Pre Workout does not have DMAA, but still has many of those hard-hitting stimulants we love to see in a stim junkie pre workout. In this Flame Pre Workout Review, I will tell you everything you need to know about the experience, label, flavor, and more.
Let’s find out if Dark Labs can complete the trifecta as we dive into the Flame Pre Workout Review!
Closest thing right now to Flame is Hypermax Extreme.
After the rise of Herolean and Crack, it is safe stay the expectations for Flame are high. And I am happy to say that Dark Labs delivered.
I tried the Blueberry Lemonade flavor and it was actually quite nice. Dark Labs have always been good with flavor, but flavor is the least important thing about a pre workout. Especially a stim junkie pre workout like Flame.
Let’s start with the energy. With the amount of stimulants in Flame Pre Workout, it would be very hard to miss with this part. It definitely takes a while to kick in, but when it does, this thing hits. I peaked about 30 minutes into the workout and the experience was simply awesome.
Another aspect I love to see in a pre workout is mood elevation/euphoria. About half an hour in, and even after the workout, you get this sense of happiness or maybe more like a motivational feeling. A feeling that gets you in the mood to do what you need to do.
The focus I got from Flame Pre Workout was also top notch. During the workout, it seemed like Flame could not miss on any part. I was super locked in and motivated. During my first couple of workouts with Flame, I even managed to get a few extra reps in.
The only thing that you miss out with Flame Pre Workout is the pumps. There are not many pump ingredients in Flame leading to a very underwhelming experience in that category. But in my opinion, all of the other great things make up for the pumps.
Flame has a bunch of stimulants like DMHA, Eria Jarensis, Alpha Yohimbine, and Hordenine. Not always do these ingredients work well together, but Dark Labs managed to create a very well-balanced formula to where no one ingredient is super overwhelming. Flame Pre Workout has an extremely clean formula that comes together to make an early contender for best pre workout 2021.
First ingredient we have on the list is Hordenine at 70 mg. This is an ingredient that has been seen more and more recently as companies have began to notice how much it can improve a pre workout. This is 20 mg more than in Assassin and acts as an extreme energizer/fat-burning ingredient in Flame Pre Workout.
Alpha Yohimbine is another hardcore stimulant that is found only in the strongest of pre workouts. A very similar effect as Hordenine, Alpha Yo is going to provide a thermogenic effect and overall performance boost.
Next we have Caffeine at 300 mg which is a very normal amount. As you would expect, Caffeine acts as another aspect to the energy matrix of Flame Pre Workout.
Eria Jarensis Extract
Eria Jarensis is there for mood elevation and euphoria during and even after the workout by elevating your dopamine levels. At 500 mg, this is one of the highest dosages of Eria Jarensis I have ever seen. Fortunately, it was not too overwhelming for me, but may be for some.
Also known as DMHA, 2-Amino is a very common ingredient among pre workouts and is an extremely solid focus ingredient at the right dosage. At 300 mg I would say Dark Labs did a great job at allocating the right amount.
Made from the amino acid known as Arginine, Agmatine sulfate at 1 g is going to provide an overall increase in athletic performance. It may also work into the euphoric effect mentioned earlier.
Black Pepper Extract
Next, an absorption ingredient that improves the intake experience with Flame so you don’t have to suffer while taking the pre workout. Studies have also shown Black Pepper Extract to have some cerebral benefits.
Theobroma Cacao Extract
Lastly, one that you may have not seen before, Theobroma cacao extract is going to boost cognitive function while also acting as another energy booster in an already fully-loaded pre workout.
A frontrunner for the best DMAA pre workout of 2020, Crack Pre Workout rose to the top with 120 mg DMAA. Similarly, the Dark Labs pre workout dials you in for the whole of your gym session and the pumps are insane.
Excelsior has become a somewhat staple in the pre workout game. Known for its tunnel vision focus and enhanced energy. If you like hardcore pre workouts, you would want to get your hands on this.
One of my absolute favorite pre workouts of all time, Assassin V6 is a super hard-hitter. While it does not have DMAA or any other ingredients us Stim Junkies love, this pre workout is one of the most well-made pre workouts I have ever tried.
