Smashing your personal goals at the gym requires dedication and perseverance, and athletes across the world look for ways to accentuate their existing grit and determination. For many, pre-workout supplements are a great way of giving yourself an extra edge, as these specialist products are designed to give you a useful burst of energy, focus and muscular power.
Below we take an in-depth look at Shredz Pre-Workout, to examine whether this popular Instagram favourite is strong enough to rise above the competition.
Shredz Pre-Workout is a performance-boosting supplement, that claims to improve energy and focus in the gym. It consists of ingredients ranging from brain-boosting nootropics, energy-boosters, and performance-supporting amino acids.
Pre-Workout is manufactured by Shredz, an increasingly popular supplement manufacturer that is enjoying a growing reputation on social media. The marketing team at Shredz is arguably more important to the group’s success than its products, with multiple Instagram models helping to flaunt their supplements across the United States. Notably, the company’s presence on more dedicated bodybuilding social networks is lacking, with most forum users on www.bodybuilding.com regarding the company with more derision than respect.
As with most Shredz products, Pre-Workout comes in a “For Men” version and a “For Women” version. In this case, there is very little real difference between the products (check our Ingredients tab for more information).
Shredz Pre-Workout uses a range of energy-boosting ingredients that may cause side effects. The most notable of these is caffeine, which in such high doses is known to cause jitters, increased heartrate, sleeplessness, headaches, increased blood pressure, and more. Customers sensitive to caffeine may consider avoiding this product, or at least limiting their caffeine intake whilst taking it.
This product also uses an extremely high dose of Vitamin B6, which can cause serious nerve/brain problems over time, stomach upset, loss of appetite, headaches, drowsiness, and a tingly sensation in the skin.
Although the dose used in this mixture is low, the use of Huperzine A may cause a range of side effects (especially if this product is taken daily for months at a time). Potential side effects may include many of the issues listed above, plus high blood pressure, muscle cramps, sweating, blurred vision, and more.
Shredz Pre-Workout is much less expensive than other comparable products. A 30-day supply of powder costs $29.99 plus $5+ in shipping and handling (depending on where you live in the country). International customers should expect to pay more in shipping and customs charges. Pre-Workout is only available to buy on the official Shredz webstore.
As pre-workout products go, this one isn’t too bad. The ingredients balance appears to be well-formulated, containing a decent mixture of energy-boosting ingredients, brain-boosting nootropics, and a few amino acids thrown in to improve performance. It obviously goes without saying that this blend will cause caffeine-related side effects, but many customers looking for a pre-workout like this will know that going in. The price is also relatively fair, offering 30-servings for $30-35, which is half of what some manufacturers charge for roughly the same thing.
Our main problem with this product is the lack of customer reviews. Sometimes, judging whether products like these are really potent requires checking previous customer experiences to see how well the mixture works, and how it compares to others on the market. If you’ve given Shredz pre-Workout a try, let us know in the comments and we’ll add your thoughts to the review!
Not being able to check customer reviews creates a bit of risk for customers looking to buy, and the risk is only made worse by the lack of money back guarantee offered by Shredz. If your left unsatisfied with your purchase, you won’t be able to return it – and that’s a problem.
It’s a good start overall, but we’d like to hear a little bit more about this product before we can really recommend it. In the meantime, there are other more tried-and-true options out there.
We do not recommend Shredz Pre-Workout to our readers.
Shredz Pre-Workout is a supplement designed increase energy, focus and athletic output at the gym. As the name might suggest, it is designed to be taken before workout sessions. This product comes in 2 versions; the version with red packaging is “For Men” and the version with pink packaging is “For Women”. Other than the names, there is very little difference between them.
This pre-workout is designed and produced by Shredz, an American supplement manufacturer that has grown increasingly popular through their significant presence on Instagram. Shredz has become a highly successful company over the last few years, and has even been featured in Forbes Magazine and held up as an example of smart business. The company not only produces supplements, but has expanded to producing sportswear, and diet and exercise plans. The company can be contacted via the details supplied on the official website.
The directions for use are as follows:
Take one (1) scoop mixed with ten to twelve (10-12) ounces of water prior to your workout.
As with most pre-workout formulas, this product is pretty easy to understand. Put simply it aims to help customers enjoy a boost of energy, focus and athletic/muscular performance in the gym. Customers are required to take the product before they begin their workout.
On the official Shredz website, the manufacturer states that Pre-Workout:
Shredz Pre-Workout contains a few energy-boosting ingredients, including caffeine, theacrine, Vitamin B12, and theobromine. Together with the nootropic ingredients found in this mixture, these ingredients should boost energy and focus as advertised.
Shredz Pre-Workout also uses a couple of ingredients that are designed to boost muscular output (including beta-alanine and others); there aren’t too many of these and the quantities aren’t particularly high, but customers may still experience a mild boost.
Overall, we imagine that this mix likely works as advertised, although it remains a shame that there are no customer reviews available online to verify this fact properly.
The ingredients found in Shredz Pre-Workout are detailed below. The ingredient quantities supplied are true for 1 scoop (9g) of Pre-Workout powder
Only found in the “For Women” version of the product:
Shredz Pre-Workout uses a notably high dose of energy-boosting ingredients, which could cause a range of side effects.
High doses of caffeine can cause headaches, jitteriness, insomnia, an increased heartrate, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, and increased blood pressure. Customers that are extra sensitive to caffeine should consider avoiding it altogether, or at least avoid other sources of caffeine whilst using it.
The energy boosting mix also contains very high levels of Vitamin B6 and B12, which can cause vomiting, stomach upset, loss of appetite, headaches, drowsiness, and a tingling feeling. Long-term high doses of Vitamin B6 can also cause nerve and brain problems; customers should be aware of this, as Shredz Pre-Workout contains nearly 300% of the RDA for Vitamin B6 per serving!
Other ingredients may also cause occasional side effects (although these are a lot rarer). Tyrosine is generally thought to be safe, but may cause nausea, headaches, fatigue, heartburn, and joint pain for some customers. Betaine may occasionally cause stomach complaints and diarrhoea.
Huperzine A is known for its side effects, especially when taken continuously for 3 months or more. It has been known to cause digestive issues, stomach issues, blurred vision, loss of appetite, sweating, cramping, high blood pressure, and other issues.

Unfortunately, we were unable to find any customer comments about Shredz Pre-Workout online.
On the official Shredz website, a close examination of the returns policy shows that there is no money back guarantee available to cover supplement purchases. Customers can contact Shredz to arrange a refund (as long as the contact is made within 14 days of receiving the goods), but the company unfortunately only accepts returns of unopened and untouched packages. We do not consider this arrangement to represent a real money back guarantee.
Shredz Pre-Workout can be only be purchased from the official Shredz webstore. A 30-day supply of Shredz Pre-Workout costs $29.99 on the official website. Shipping costs tend to reach around $5-6 when purchasing a single tub of Pre-Workout.
