T6 Pre-Workout Review

Following the release of the T6 Pre-Workout by Advanced Dietics, I was excited to give it a try and see just how good it was.

Now let me quickly set the scene. I train at either 6 or 7am, depending on what time I start work, and usually I don’t mind a morning workout but the day I used the T6 pre-workout for the first time, I was aching, tired (after numerous wake ups during the night to feed my 7 month old daughter) and just wasn’t really feeling biking to the gym for an explosive push session at 6:30am. Anyway, I went for a heaped scoop, and consumed it about 15 minutes before setting off to the gym.

About 10 minutes into my workout I started to feel great, I had forgotten all about my aches and pains and was adding more weight to the barbell than I had originally planned. Throughout the session my energy levels remained high, and when I started to run out of time I realised I didn’t want to leave the gym. Exactly what you want from a pre-workout!

The Ingredients

This incredible boost of energy and focus was thanks to the whopping 400mg of caffeine from the 7.1g (maybe a little more) serving.

Despite this huge amount of caffeine, I luckily didn’t “crash” later on, although I would imagine after further use I may feel a little run down in the hours after using the product. And I also can’t speak for anybody else.

The T6 pre-workout contains 1.5g of Beta Alanine, a modified version of the amino acid Alanine. Beta Alanine has been shown to enhance muscular endurance, which is exactly what you want for hypertrophy training or cardio vascular based exercise.

Citrulline Malate is added with a dosage of 1.7g. Citrulline Malate works extremely well with Beta Alaline to help with blood flow during training, and pushing out those last few reps. Compared to the 6-8g needed to boost performance as shown in most studies, the 1.7g in the T6 is a little low.

Arginine is also used, which alongside the Beta Alanine and Citrulline Malate will help to boost Nitric Oxide levels in the blood, which directly boosts blood flow and buffers lactic acid. Overall, this is a great little trip to help with sports performance.

I’m not going to go into the other ingredients as I don’t want to ramble on and turn this into a scientific explanation of the product. But you can see the full ingredients list below. As a summary of the ingredients found in this pre-workout, for a 7.1g serving size, it’s a great line up

Typical Values Per 7.1 g Serving
Arginine (mg) 2,275.0
Beta Alanine (mg) 1,500.0
Bitter Orange Peel (mg) 50.0
Caffeine (mg) 400.0
Citrulline Malate (mg) 1,700.0
Niacin (mg) 40.0
Taurine (mg) 500.0
Vitamin B6 (mg) 14.0
Vitamin B12 (ug) 8.5
White Tea (mg) 400.0


Flavour and Mix ability

At the time of writing, the only flavour available is blue raspberry. In the past I’ve used pre-workouts that are barely drinkable, and I’ve found it a chore to drink. I found the flavour to be really nice, it had a really sweet taste and I could see myself going through the full tub without getting sick of it. In the future I'd like to see a wider selection of flavours to pick from.

The powder mixed really well and had a pretty smooth texture. Just a reminder, add the water first, not the powder!

Final Thoughts

To summarise, I would give this product a 8.5/10 rating. It tasted great, mixed really well and gave me the boost I needed to have an intense workout. The only downside I would say is due to the high dosage of caffeine, you couldn’t go for 2 scoops to boost the Beta Alanine & Citrulline Malate levels, so it will never be a "top level" pre-workout, in my opinion of course. The tub contains 30 servings in total, which at £23.99 for a tub, it is pretty good value for money compared to rival products. I would definitely recommend trying this product for yourself, and let us know your thoughts!
