Best Stimulant Free Pre Workouts For Your Gym Hits (Review)
So you’re looking to add a new pre workout to your supplement arsenal, but trying to avoid the jitters. The solution to getting your workouts to the next level could be a stimulant free pre workout or low-stim pre workout. Whether you’re cycling off stimulant pre workouts or are just want to get a full night’s rest after a evening workout, there is a great stimulant free pre workout available for you. And in this blog we’ll be going over them!
As the name suggests, a stimulant free pre workout is a pre workout without stimulants like caffeine. But what does that mean in reference to your performance in the gym? Well a stimulant free pre workout typically aim to enhance performance and promote greater, stronger lifts.†
But a stim-free pre workout doesn’t have to be taken on it’s own. In fact, many gym goers like to stack their stim-free pre workout with their regular pre workout. This can help support enhancing performance without sacrificing energy.†
Stimulant free pre workouts can help bring you into that tunnel-vision focus in the gym while also promoting stronger, skin-tearing pumps. Whereas with a stimulant-based pre workout you may sacrifice some of the performance complex due to the natural side effects of caffeine like vasoconstriction. (1)
“Vasoconstriction refers to the narrowing of blood vessels by small muscles in their walls. When these blood vessels constrict, blood flow is slowed or blocked.” (2)
In return, your pump isn’t as “skin-tearing” as it could be. A stim-free pre workout on the other hand, can promote better blood flow and hydration. This is because the ingredients typically in these formulas are selected for increasing endurance and strength overall. So where you are missing the “oomph” from caffeine or another stimulant its made up for it with these other complexes.
Although you may miss the edge of a stimulant pre workout, there are other benefits to stimulant free pre workouts. Now although removing stimulants will help your pump, it should be noted that stimulants are not created equal. So for example in the pre workout Joe mentioned in our YouTube video (Smokin Guns By Caliber Nutrition), the ingredients in the energy complex aren’t going to inhibit the other complexes.† So the best of both worlds can be achieved. But if stim-free isn’t how you roll you can always add it to your regular pre workout and maximize pumps.
When you’re comparing formulas, we recommend looking for key vasodilation ingredients like L-Citrulline and L-Arginine. You’ll also want to narrow in on performance enhancing ingredients like Beta Alanine, Betaine or Beet Root Extract, and Agmatine. Some other ingredients you’ll want to keep an eye out for include focus enhancers like Choline Bitartrate, Alpha GPC, and L-Tyrosine. Finally, we would also look for ingredients that can help maintain hydration or reduce muscle fatigue like L-Taurine, BCAAs, Creatine, and Glycerol.†
But its not enough to have these ingredients in the formula, you’ll also want to compare dosages. While some ingredients don’t have a set clinical dosage for effective, many popular ingredients do. In the case, a pre workout is short on the dosage of an ingredient you’ll want to look for ingredients that can help improve absorption, like Malic Acid, Sulfate, Black Pepper Extract, Nitrates or Panax Notoginseng. †
In this section, we’ll dive into some popular stim-free pre workouts. However, you aren’t limited to pre workout blend. Many of the popular ingredients in stim-free pre workouts are available to take on its own or to add to a pre workout.

Customer Review By Andy: “I like the Blue Raspberry flavor cause it’s stimulant free. So for the nights I don’t get to the gym till later in the evening, it’s perfect. I get to fulfill my workout and get a good night’s sleep. As far for the pump, I do feel stronger, like I can do more reps at a heavier weight or even try to max out. But I don’t personally get a huge, skin-tearing pump. The pump is there, but when stacked with like Nitraflex, you can’t ignore it.”
