Which Jacked Factory Pre-Workout Powder Should You Take?

best pre-workout powder jacked factory

Jacked Factory is proud to offer a range of versatile pre-workout formulas for gym-goers, athletes, and bodybuilders that are looking to take their performance to the next level. In fact, the first JF supplement was ALTIUS — a game-changing pre-workout powder featuring clinical doses of no-nonsense ingredients backed by science and proven in the trenches. 

ALTIUS led the way for JF pre-workouts to evolve into what they are now: a diverse and complementary array of science-based ergogenic formulas that taste great and don't cut corners.

If you're new to JF supplements and want to know the difference between pre-workouts like ALTIUS, NITROSURGE, and PUMPSURGE, this guide is for you! We'll break down each JF pre-workout formula and highlight key benefits so you can pick the right supplement for your needs. 

NITROSURGE: Premium Pre-Workout Powder Minus the Premium Price Tag

Following in the footsteps of its "big brother" ALTIUS, NITROSURGE is the ideal pre-workout formula for those who want quality ingredients in effective doses at an affordable price point. A critical difference between NITROSURGE and ALTIUS is that the former is creatine-free and has an overall smaller serving size (9.3 g per scoop vs. 20 g per scoop). 

However, NITROSURGE is by no means a "concentrated" pre-workout formula as it still packs over 12 grams of active ingredients per two-scoop serving, including:

  • 6,000 mg of pure L-citrulline
  • 3,200 mg of beta-alanine
  • 2,500 mg of betaine anhydrous
  • 360 mg of caffeine anhydrous
  • 180 mg of L-theanine
  • 100 mg of theobromine
  • 50 mg of AstraGin™

As such, NITROSURGE is a slightly more economical option and an excellent choice for individuals sensitive to pre-workouts with creatine (as well as creatine non-responders). For many gym-goers, just one scoop of NITROSURGE is enough to get the job done, which makes it a remarkable value. It's also great for those who would rather take a separate creatine monohydrate supplement after their workouts. 


  • Just $0.83 per serving
  • Synergistic pump and strength formula with science-backed ingredients
  • Amplifies focus, energy, and cognitive function for hours on end
  • Thirteen delicious flavors and counting — one of the best-tasting pre-workouts on the market!
  • Available in on-the-go stick packs!
  • Absolutely no sugar, fillers, or artificial food dyes


NITROSURGE SHRED: Thermogenic Pre-Workout Formula

NITROSURGE SHRED is a no-bull thermogenic pre-workout formula. If your goal is to cut body fat while preserving hard-earned muscle and strength, this is the pre-workout powder for you. 

NITROSURGE SHRED kills two birds with one stone by augmenting athletic performance and facilitating fat loss when you're pumping iron and doing cardio. Every 2-scoop serving of NITROSURGE SHRED contains:

  • 4,000 mg of pure L-citrulline
  • 3,200 mg of beta-alanine
  • 2,000 mg of acetyl-L-carnitine (ALCAR)
  • 360 mg of caffeine anhydrous
  • 180 mg of L-theanine
  • 100 mg of theobromine
  • 5 mg of BioPerine®

A critical distinction of this formula from the original NITROSURGE is the inclusion of ALCAR, a bioavailable form of L-carnitine that helps shuttle triglycerides (fat) into mitochondria so they can be burned for energy. ALCAR is also a potent neuroprotective agent that provides synergy with caffeine, L-theanine, and theobromine.


  • Advanced thermogenic pre-workout that ignites fat-burning pathways while increasing athletic performance 
  • Increase blood flow, endurance, strength, and energy
  • Improve focus, mood, and concentration 
  • Ideal for active individuals that are trying to cut body fat and preserve as much muscle as possible
  • No sugar, fillers, or artificial coloring
  • Just $0.99 per one-scoop serving
  • Comes in multiple taste-bud friendly flavors


PUMPSURGE: Stim-Free Pre-Workout & Nootropic Formula

PUMPSURGE is a premium stimulant-free pre-workout formula that's stellar as either a standalone supplement or as an adjunct to other JF pre-workout powders. This formula comes loaded with muscle-volumizing ingredients and NO-boosters to fully maximize the "pump" while you're banging out reps in the gym.

PUMPSURGE also features a range of non-stimulant nootropics to help you focus and improve mental clarity without making you jittery or interfering with sleep (great for those who train late in the evening/shortly before bedtime). Each scoop of PUMPSURGE provides:

  • 5,000 mg of pure L-citrulline (distinct from citrulline malate)
  • 2,500 mg of betaine anhydrous
  • 2,000 mg of taurine
  • 150 mg of alpha-GPC
  • 25 mg of AstraGin™
  • 5 mcg huperzine-A

Since PUMPSURGE is stimulant-free, it's the perfect pre-workout powder for active individuals sensitive to ingredients like caffeine and theobromine.


  • Designed to maximize muscle pumps and strength with clinical doses of L-citrulline and betaine anhydrous.
  • Packed with stim-free nootropics to enhance focus and mental clarity 
  • Ideal for those who train shortly before bedtime and individuals sensitive to stimulants like caffeine.
  • Can be stacked with other JF stim-based pre-workouts like NITROSURGE for even greater energy, focus, and stamina,
  • Available in 6 refreshing fruit flavors
  • Zero sugar, fillers, or artificial food dyes


ALTIUS: The "OG" Clinically Dosed Pre-Workout

ALTIUS is the "OG" Jacked Factory pre-workout powder designed with strength athletes and dedicated gym-goers in mind. Experience skin-tearing muscle pumps, clean, lasting energy, and precise focus. Each serving (1 scoop) of this pre-workout formula comes fully loaded with time-tested ingredients in clinical doses, including:

  • 8,000 mg of L-citrulline malate
  • 3,200 mg of beta-alanine
  • 3,000 mg of creatine monohydrate
  • 2,500 mg of BetaPower™ betaine anhydrous

  • 470 mg electrolytes (sodium and potassium)

ALTIUS set the trend for clinically dosed, transparent pre-workout supplements with a whopping 18+ grams of active ingredients in each serving (nearly 400% more than most pre-workouts contained at the time). Like all Jacked Factory supplements, ALTIUS is free from proprietary blends and lists the specific amounts of each active ingredient.
