The Gulag Pre Workout is a pre workout supplement from Just Vibes Nutrition. World on the block is that this may be the new Dark Energy, or something of the sort.
Which is huge because Dark Energy Pre Workout is gone for good.
In this Gulag Pre Workout Review, you will find out everything you need to know. From the experience, ingredients, side effects, and more!
I took 1 scoop of the “These Colors Don’t Run” flavor with 6-8 ounces of cold water. The flavor was decent. But I do not really care about flavors. The experience is what matters.
Also, I don’t want to raise your hopes up too much, but The Gulag may be the new Dark Energy Pre Workout…
About 20 minutes after taking the scoop, I started to feel the energy surge. With that came the Beta Alanine tingles. The energy lasted for approximately 2-3 hours.
I did a little warm-up workout, and then that’s when that focus came in. This wasn’t laser focus, but it was really solid and got me locked in for the rest of the session.
What makes this an amazing pre workout is the happiness/mood elevation factor. This the best mood pre workout I have tried since DE.
This happy feeling even lasted a little past the workout. Which is one of my favorite things about pre workouts. When you can use that extra buzz for work or study.
Pumps were solid, nothing too crazy. But at the end of the day, the pumps are based on how hard you train.
I did not experience any side effects either. A lot of the time with these hardcore pre workouts, there is a major crash/comedown. But that is not the case with Just Vibes The Gulag.
If you miss the OG Dark Energy, I recommend giving this one a shot.
The Gulag has a bunch of hardcore ingredients like DMHA, Synephrine HCL, and Alpha Yohimbine.
This is also a semi-proprietary label so we cannot see the exact dosages of some of the components. Although, I would assume most of the ingredients without doses have the typical amounts.
Caffeine Anhydrous (250mg)
First on the ingredient list is caffeine anhydrous. Caffeine is going to provide a boost in energy. As well as enhance the efficacy of other components.
Secondly, DMHA is a stim junkie’s best friend. A legit focus and euphoria ingredient that takes Gulag Pre Workout to the next level (Source).
Next, L-Citrulline is a powerful pump ingredient. 6g is pretty much the clinical dose. Will deliver on nice pumps.
Beta Alanine (3.2g)
3.2g Beta-Alanine to buffer lactic acid, reducing muscle fatigue & increase overall endurance. It also gives you the tingling feeling throughout your body.
Next, Synephrine HCL is here strictly for focus. Yet another stimulant that will only boost the cognitive matrix.
Guarana Seed Extract
One you rarely see. Guarana Seed Extract contains stimulants such as caffeine, theophylline, and theobromine. Guarana also contains antioxidants.
Antioxidants prevent unwanted effects in pre workouts.
Then we have Alpha Yohimbine which is an intensity ingredient. Providing a thermal effect that ‘spices’ up the experience.
Agmatine Sulfate (1500mg)
Lastly, Agmatine Sulfate is a common ingredient in pump pre workouts. 1500mg will increase power output as well as improving absorption.
Does Gulag Pre Workout have DMAA?
The Gulag Pre Workout does not contain DMAA, but it does have DMHA. Which is like DMAA’s legal brother.
Is it safe to take Just Vibes The Gulag?
As long as you are used to taking pre workout supplements, you should be fine with The Gulag.
How much caffeine is in Gulag Pre Workout?
The Gulag has 250mg of Caffeine Anhydrous. Which is a little below the typical dose, but there are many other stimulants.
Does The Gulag Pre Workout have any side effects?
From my experience, The Gulag has no side effects. This is a clean, euphoric experience.
The Gulag Pre Workout is an awesome pre workout. Every time I use it, it reminds me of Dark Energy.
Now, that does not mean this is 100% the new Dark Energy. What I mean is that the happiness aspects were very similar.
Similar or not, this is a great pre workout. Super unique and effective.
A frontrunner for the best DMAA pre workout of 2o22, 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.
Lastly, one of my absolute favorite pre workouts of all time, Assassin 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.
