Ripped couple

Most of us know that a good pre-workout supplement can really help you get a great workout. What many people don’t know is that there are pre-workout supplements out there that are made to burn fat as well as give you a great workout. Those are the kinds of pre-workouts that we will be talking about today.

These pre workouts will increase your energy, increase focus, increase muscle pumps, build strength and burn fat. There is nothing not to like about that. Let’s take a look at what makes a good fat burner, then we will go over the ones that burn the most fat.

Best Pre Workout Ingredients

If you want to have a pre-workout that works well then you need to be sure to get one with top of the line ingredients that work. Here are the best ingredients to look for when it comes to a pre-workout.

Citrulline Malate – This is one of our favorite pre-workout ingredients. It has a high absorption rate and has been shown to increase strength and both aerobic and muscular endurance.

Betaine Anhydrous – This ingredient has been shown to decrease fatigue and also increase levels of HGH and IGF-1, while at the same time decreasing cortisol.

Beta-Alanine – Beta-Alanine has been shown to reduce fatigue and it is also the ingredient that provides the tingling sensation you get from some pre-workouts.

Caffeine Anhydrous –  Of course, you know caffeine gives you an energy boost but it also has been shown to reduce the feeling of effort which leads to more reps and increases readiness to exert effort.

Mucuna Pruriens – This one has been shown to bring on a “peace of mind” feeling to your workout and it also has been shown to increase testosterone and growth hormone

Synephrine HCl – This is an ingredient that has been shown to raise your metabolic rate and increase fat burning.

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine – Increases mental energy as well as focus

What to Avoid in a Pre-Workout

When it comes to pre-workouts one of the things you should try to avoid is proprietary blends. A proprietary blend is where the manufacturer puts a group of ingredients together in what they call a blend. The problem is they only tell you the size of the blend and they do not tell you how much of each ingredient is in the blend so you have no idea how much of those ingredients are really in there.

It is a bit shady and lazy on the manufacturers part but I would say more than half of all pre-workouts are proprietary blends. The industry needs to do a better job of policing itself and do away with proprietary blends.

It’s also good to try and use a supplement that is manufactured in the USA, Canada or other first world countries. Some manufacturers will go with the cheapest ingredients possible and have it made in China or Malaysia and the like, you should try to avoid those if you can but sometimes it is tough to find out where it is made.

Top 5 Pre-Workout SupplementsThat Burn Fat

Now that we have talked a bit about the best ingredients and what else to look for in a pre-workout let’s get to the list.

1. PreSeries LEAN by Transparent Labs

Preseries Lean

Coming in first place we have PreSeries LEAN by Transparent Labs. This one is a great pre-workout and is the best on the market if you are looking for a pre-workout if you are looking to burn fat and get lean like the name says.

This pre-workout is also the only one on the list that has a fat burning and thyroid support complex for extra fat burning and that does not suck.

Taking a look at the ingredients on this one and it is easy to see why this one is at the top of our list. They start off with a good dose of Citrulline Malate for strength and endurance. They also use a caffeine anhydrous and Synephrine HCl for increased metabolism and fat burning.

On top of that, they have the fat burning and thyroid complex that includes Iodine Chelate, Selenium and other ingredients to boost your metabolism even higher.

Overall this bad boy has 21 active ingredients to make you a workout machine while burning fat and gaining strength. That is way more ingredients than you get with most pre-workouts, this one truly delivers.

Another nice thing about PreSeries LEAN is they don’t use any artificial sweeteners, dyes, GMO, gluten or preservatives. It is also made in America and that doesn’t suck. There really isn’t much not to like about this product.

PreSeries Lean goes for $49 for a bag but you can save 10% if you use the code TL10. The price also goes down when you buy more than one bag.

2. Nutrabolics Thermal XTC Fat Burning Pre Workout

Thermal XTC Fat Burning Pre Workout

Next, on our list, we have Thermal XTC by Nutrabolics. This one is another good pre-workout that will also help burn fat.

Taking a look at the ingredients we see it has a nice dose of L-Tyrosine which is great for attention and focus, they also use caffeine for increased energy. For fat burning, they use green coffee extract and green tea extract as the main fat burning ingredients.

The only problem with this one is that while it does have some good fat burning ingredients it is a little weak on the pre workout ingredients. We would like to see them add some Citrulline Malate or Betaine Anhydrous.

The price on this one is $36.99. There is no price break for buying in bulk.

Overall we like this one as a fat burner but it falls a bit short in the pre-workout department.


  • Effective fat burning ingredients
  • No proprietary blends
  • Uses ingredients to reduce hunger
  • No artificial flavors or colors
  • Less expensive

Any Negatives?

  • Not enough pre-workout ingredients
  • No savings when buying in bulk



3. C4 Ripped by Cellucor

C4 Ripped pre-workout

Up next we have C4 Ripped by Cellucor. This one is likely the best tasting on the list so if you are really into flavor this might be on to look at.

C4 Ripped uses a ripped blend and an energy blend along with other ingredients to help deliver a good workout experience with the benefit of fat burning.

The ripped blend uses fat burning ingredients like Green Coffee Bean Extract and Cayenne Pepper along with other ingredients to help reduce body fat. The problem is that they use a proprietary blend so we have no idea how much of each ingredient is in there.

The energy blend uses caffeine and N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine along with Mucuna Pruriens to help boost your energy level for your workouts. Unfortunately, the energy blend is also a proprietary blend as well.

The price on this one is $39.99. They don’t offer any discount for buying in bulk though and they don’t have any coupon codes.

This product is probably the best tasting on the list but it uses artificial flavoring so that might be a problem for people who like to go all natural.

Overall they use some good ingredients but it does have its problems like using proprietary blends and artificial flavors.


  • Great tasting
  • Big name manufacturer
  • Good ingredients

Any Negatives?

  • Uses proprietary blends
  • Uses artificial flavors
  • No savings when buying in bulk



4. Vapor X5 Ripped by Muscletech

Vapor X5 Ripped Pre Workout Fat Burner by Muscletech

In fourth place we have Vapor X5 Ripped Pre Workout and Fat Burner by Muscletech. This one is another pretty good product for you to consider.

Checking out the ingredients on this one and the first thing we notice is it will deliver an increased libido with a 20mg Yohimbe which is a nice bonus. They also use a 200mg dose of C. canephora robusta which is actually just another name for Green Coffee Extract. On top of that, they use L-Citrulline for strength and endurance as well as 150mg of caffeine for energy.

This one is also a pretty good tasting pre-workout but it does use artificial flavors. The nice thing is it isn’t a proprietary blend though.

Cost of Vapor X5 Ripped is $39.99 plus shipping and there are no savings for buying in bulk.


  • Good taste
  • Good for libido enhancement
  • No proprietary blend
  • Uses coffee bean extract for fat loss

Any Negatives?

5. 2 Shredded by Beast Nutrition

2 Shredded Pre Workout

Rounding out our list of the top 5 pre-workout supplements that burn fat we have 2 Shredded by Beast Sports Nutrition. This one has 15 active ingredients which is nice, the bad news is they are in proprietary blends so it’s impossible to tell how much of each ingredient you are getting.

Taking a look at the ingredients and they use Green Tea Powder, caffeine as well as Iodine to boost metabolism and blast fat. This one is another one that looks to be a bit more of a fat burner than it is a pre-workout. The only real energy boosting ingredient they have is caffeine which is in most fat burners.

2 Shredded goes for $34.99 making it the least expensive on the list. Unfortunately, it is also the least effective supplement on the list. They do not offer savings when buying in bulk either.


  • Effective fat burning ingredients
  • Good taste

Any Negatives?

  • Uses proprietary blend
  • Uses artificial flavors
  • Not effective in the pre-workout aspect
