It has been probably a couple of years since I reviewed a DMAA pre workout, and I’m excited for this one – irAte pre workout by Juggernaut. Juggernaut nutrition has been in our reviews before with their WiLD pre workout which I REALLY liked, and I know a lot of you who got it after the review really liked it as well, so I was interested to see what this one brings to the table. irAte is the second pre workout from Juggernaut Nutrition, and as you know this is a DMAA pre workout. Yeah, it is sort of banned, but as it seems you can still find some of these around.
So, let’s get into the irAte Pre Workout label, which is actually a very simple label much like WiLD.
For pumps you’re getting 5g of Citrulline-Malate which is a bit below clinical dose, and I think is not enough, but pumps are not that critical here.
Beta Alanine at 2.5mg (same as wild) and Creatine HCL at 1.5mg. Yes, it is below clinical dose, but it is in here mainly for muscle power.
If you’re going for irAte, you’re probably going for the stimulant package. This one follows the WiLD type pre workouts in the sense of not being caffeine heavy. You have Caffeine Citrate and Caffeine Anhydrous at 150mg each. That brings real Caffeine all together to 225mg, which is below the norm for sure, but doesn’t necessarily mean much. Then, you have DMAA at 70mg. Now, I know a lot of you felt like life isn’t worth living when DMAA went away. For me personally, I feel that most DMHA pre workout are as good, but I do like this one as well.
Then, you have Yohimbine HCL at 2.5mg which is an interesting addition (it is NOT Alpha Yo, don’t worry), that is going to help with body temperature, thermogenesis, and work with the caffeine. All in all, no crazy pumps here.
First thing I noticed is, just like WiLD (or even worse than WiLD), this product really clumps. It doesn’t actually affect the mixing though, just a strange texture. As far as flavor goes, it’s actually pretty nice.
When it comes to performance, I found it to be a super solid, pleasant burst of energy and focus. A really good one, with no real jittery effect. The energy takes about 20 minutes before it fully kicks in, but then you have great 1.5-2 hours of a workout.
Similar to WiLD, it is not going to last for 5 hours, you’re not going to get the post workout flying feeling, just because there’s not enough stims. But still, very solid experience.
If you’re trying to get off the hardcore pre workouts like AREZ, Pre Stacked, oh yeah, Immortal by Rage and others, and you wanna tone down just a little bit, this is a good one to go for. The pumps are not amazing which you can expect from the ingredients, but still a very good choice when you want to feel good and have a great motivated workout.
