Juggernaut is not just another pre-workout supplement; Infinite Labs offers what I believe to be the best value on the market. At just $29.99 for 40 scoops, Juggernaut is good for anywhere between 26 and 40 workouts. That’s less than $1 per workout. Even the naysayers who stick to coffee as their pre-workout drink of choice probably spend more, depending on where they get their coffee.
Any good businessman…or woman knows that in order to find a niche for your product, you have to be the best in a single category, e.g., best-tasting, most caffeine, least expensive, etc. This is usually referred to as differentiation. Juggernaut has, ahem, “the highest glycerol load on the market” (hey, that’s their ad copy, not mine). They’ve differentiated themselves that way. What is glycerol, you ask?
Without getting into too much biochemical detail, suffice it to say glycerol aids in hyperhydration when dosed appropriately and the person ingesting it is already adequately hydrated. Glycerol, the form in Juggernaut, is superior to glycerol monostearate, another common form. There is some anecdotal evidence that the hyperhydration glycerol induces pulls other nutrients along with it into the muscle, thus having an osmotic effect (this is theoretically very good, but the research isn’t cut and dry). Glycerol’s hyperhydration effect is very conducive to “pumps” in the working muscle as increased muscle cell volume increases intramuscular tension, AKA “pump.” So this is a good thing, and I’d much rather have the “highest glycerol load on the market” than the highest arginine load on the market.
There’s arginine, citrulline, norvaline, b-vitamins, whey hydrolysates, creatine, taurine, acetyl-l-carnitine, beta-alanine, caffeine, alpha-GPC (don’t know this one? Read about it here), electrolytes, minerals, waxy maize, blood sugar/insulin support, antioxidants, and even more.
I kind of view this as the ultimate “I’m on a budget” pre-workout product. For thirty dollars you are simply not going to get a more comprehensive product than this. On top of that, it tastes good (I’ve had crimson punch and raspberry lemonade so if anyone’s had orange, chime in) and the energy is right up there with a Jack3d, SuperPump250, or NO-Xplode as these are consistently lauded as the best pre-workouts from purely a stimulant perspective.
If I had to find a negative in this product, it would have to be the inclusion of arginine (arginine does what you think it’s going to do when administered via IV but not orally, more info here and here) and the use of hydrolyzed whey instead of hydrolyzed casein.
I think Juggernaut is a great pre-workout supplement for those looking for a change of pace from their current pre-workout of choice, or those that currently take several of the things found within it individually. It is also very affordable. Finally, Lee Priest loves it and the man’s arms are like legs of lesser mortals. So you’ve got that going for you.
