Dymatize – New Pre
I was lucky enough to be selected to try the new Pre from Dymatize. Follow along for a few days as I provide some feedback on this product.
The package came in the mail in a very nice box. It included a 20 serving tub of the new Pre, a branded shaker bottle, a branded tshirt, and some literature. The initial reaction upon opening the package was a very pleasant one.
While you wait for some of my thoughts on this Pre…
THURSDAY, JUNE 15
I had no workout scheduled for hours when the package arrived, and I could NOT wait until my evening workout… so I had one scoop.
Taste – amazing. I got the Cotton Candy flavor. The stuff tastes amazing!
Potency – It worked really well, too, but I had no workout to use it for, so I just ending up not sitting down for a while at home 🙂 Great tingly feeling with no jitters and no after-crush.
There might be some clumping upon opening the tub. There’s a sticker on the lid that says “Shake container well before every use – contents may settle” This should not be too much of a concern. Mine had some clumps in there. Just take a fork or knife and crush them boulders.
My initial impression of this Pre is absolutely positive.
I will purchase this for sure when available in stores.
Just in case you’re wondering, here’s some supplement info…
Serving Size: 1 scoop
Servings Per Container: 20
Vitamin C: 250mg
Vitamin B12: 30mcg
Citrulline malate: 8g
Inositol Arginine: 1.5g
Caffeine: 300mg (yeah!)

Theacrine: 125mg (love this!)
I like the transparency on the contents on the label.
My favorites on there are the Caffeine and the Theacrine amounts.
FRIDAY, JUNE 16
I’ve been doing bike rides lately. Anywhere from 10-20 miles, on an almost daily basis. Today I used 1 scoop of the Dymatize Pre before a 10 mile bike ride. Took it 15 minutes before the ride. Here are some ride details…
Distance: 10 Miles
Time: 48 Minutes
Avg Speed: 12.6 Miles/Hour
Avg Heart Rate: 124 bmp
Calories Burned: 513
The Pre worked out very well. It gave me great, sustained energy, and my legs felt especially good (for lack of a better word 🙂 ) on the few steep climbs on the route. Overall very happy with this Pre, so far.

LATE-NIGHT PULL SESSION
I had already done an earlier workout on Saturday. It was a long Cardio session on my bike in the outdoors, mixed with a few sets of push-ups.
At 9PM, I had one scoop of the Dymatize PreWo and got a PULL workout in, using resistance cables at home. The workout looked like this:
Resistance Cable Curl
Resistance Cable Bent-Over Row
Had my PRE drink (1 scoop) mixed in some 16oz of water and topped with ice. It tasted amazing and was very potent during my workout!
The only problem I would report – and this is totally on me – is that I could not fall asleep until about 4AM… 😀 The label does say not to take this four hours before bedtime, but I’ve taken other PREs before bed and had no issue falling asleep.
So I squirmed in bed for a few hours and then had no choice but to get up and do some work online. Eh, you learn something new every day. Or night…
Here’s a shot of my drink from Saturday:

Lat Pull Down
Standing Cable Curl
This workout took 30 minutes to complete.
I made this video before going to the gym…
SATURDAY, JUNE 24
AFTERNOON PULL SESSION
I wanted to share this workout, because I had quite a few PRs with the Dymatize PreWO.
I discovered that for me, this PreWO hits about 12, maybe 15 minutes after I take it.
I mix it with some 12oz of water, maybe a bit more.
Here’s today’s workout at the gym:
Lat Pull Down Machine
* I actually never went pass the 125lbs.
Not as far as I can remember.
Today I started there.
I believe this was a combination of me thinking to myself I can lift more, AND a great Pre to workout with.
Hi Row Machine
Mid Row Machine
Cable Low Row
Seated Cable Machine Curl
Standing Cable-Rope Hammer Curl
This workout took 37 minutes.
I am very excited about all these new PRs!
more coming up…
