Six Star Pro Nutrition products come from the makers of Muscle Tech supplements – Iovate Health Sciences Inc. The Six Star Pro Nutrition brand, like Muscle Tech is primarily aimed at bodybuilders, but this supplement is aimed more at a general audience rather than hardcore lifters.
Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion is a cheap pre-workout supplement that is available in three flavours: Fruit Punch, Pink Lemonade, and Icy Rocket Freeze. Many customers seem to enjoy the taste and like the feeling that they are doing something to boost workout performance, but it is unlikely to work as well as many other products on the market. Pre-Workout Explosion is aimed at the general public rather than hardcore bodybuilders, so it may suit you if you fall into this group. If you are looking for a stronger stimulant buzz, Pre-Workout Explosion Ripped will probably be more suitable.
Many customers have mentioned side effects and these are mainly related to various types of skin irritation and tingling caused by the niacin and beta alanine content. Reported side effects include burning sensation, hives, itchiness, redness of skin, tingling sensation, and facial flushing.
Customers have also mentioned abdominal pain, nausea, gas, vomiting, headaches, and chest pains.
If you are extremely sensitive to caffeine you may notice jitteriness, anxiety, increased heart rate, and insomnia.
Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion is not expensive. Buy from the official Six Star Pro Nutrition website and it costs $19.99 for a 210g tub of powder – sufficient for 30 servings. Shipping costs are not provided.
You can also find Pre-Workout Explosion on sale on Amazon via various sellers and in all the flavours. Prices can be as little as $11.99 per tub, so it pays to shop around for price.
The thing that most customers seem to like best about this pre-workout shake is that it is cheap, especially if you buy it from Amazon. That’s not a great endorsement but on the other hand, it is a good point and added to this, you get a choice of flavours and some people enjoy these too.
Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion is not a strong pre-workout supplement. The ingredients are in modest amounts including the creatine, beta alanine, and the caffeine, so seasoned bodybuilders will probably find it ineffectual. However, as a general health supplement to bodybuilding and general fitness, we think it looks OK and you may find it has a slight effect on your results and your energy levels.
For some reason, the makers decided to add too much niacin to the blend which has caused most of the unpleasant side effects, and we can’t see the point of this when the only effects seem to be bad. The good news is that these skin reactions are not dangerous, but of course are unpleasant enough to prevent you from using. Getting back to the price again, at least it will not cost you an arm and a leg in finding out this supplement is unsuitable because there is no money-back guarantee.
Overall, despite the low price, we don’t think that this supplement is good enough approve. We do not recommend Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion to the Watchdog readers.
With a combination of proven ingredients, superb customer service and a 60-day money-back guarantee, Phentaslim is making big waves in the diet world.

Pre-Workout Explosion is a powdered supplement that you add to water in order to make a pre-workout drink. There are three choices of flavour: Fruit Punch, Pink Lemonade, and Icy Rocket Freeze. There is also a version of this supplement in capsule form but for the purposes of this review, we are focusing on the powder.
Pre-Workout Explosion contains beta alanine and creatine – two bodybuilder favourites because these help build muscle, strength, and endurance.
There is also an amino acid blend; The Advanced Pump Complex which contains some energy and endurance-boosting components, including l citrulline malate and taurine.
The final part of the formula is the Pre-Workout Explosion blend which contains caffeine and l tyrosine so looks like it will improve energy and alertness. Check out the ingredients tab to find out more.
According to the advertising, Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion will enhance workout intensity and muscle building results.
Pre-Workout Explosion is also available in pill form (Pre-workout Explosion Pill) although is not as strong as the powder. You can also buy Pre-Workout Explosion Ripped which again looks similar, but contains much more coffee per serving which at 400mg, is as much as the recommended daily caffeine allowance.
Six Star Pro Nutrition is a supplement brand that comes under Iovate Health Services Inc, who also market the better known Muscle Tech brand. Both brands appear to be owned by a Chinese Investment group called the Xiwang Foodstuffs Company.
Like Muscle Tech, Six Star Pro Nutrition is a slick looking operation that employs athletes as ambassadors and features a glossy looking website. Six Star supplements are available from a wide range of outlets and stores, including the official website and via Amazon. You can also find the company on Facebook where it is liked by 179, 000 people. You can contact Six Star Pro Nutrition via Facebook messenger or by email via the official website.
According to the product information, this supplement is a “Premium, delicious-tasting powder is formulated by world-leading researchers to deliver an incredible energy boost, enhanced mental focus and skin-splitting muscle pumps for explosive workouts like you’ve never experienced before.”
There five key features about this supplement;
- FROM AMERICA’S #1 SELLING BODY BUILDING SUPPLEMENT BRAND – Six Star Pre-Workout Explosion is from the makers of MuscleTech, so you know it’s a premium formula you can trust.
- SUBJECTS GAINED 18.6% MORE STRENGTH – Subjects using the exact form of creatine in the formula increased their strength capacity on the bench press by 18.6% compared to baseline (6,658 vs. 5,613 joules) in just 10 days!
- ENHANCES MUSCLE PERFORMANCE – with powerful ingredients like ultra-premium beta-alanine, creatine monohydrate, arginine AKG and ultra-clean caffeine anhydrous.
- ELEVATES MENTAL PERFORMANCE & WORKOUT INTENSITY – with scientifically researched dose of caffeine.
- ENGINEERED FOR ALL ATHLETES: the fuel you want before your workout for extreme energy, focus and intensity.
Yes, we think it will work a bit and it looks pretty safe so if you enjoy the flavours, Pre-Workout Explosion may be worth taking. It contains a well-known bodybuilding formula of beta alanine, creatine monohydrate, and l arginine AKG, so should help improve stamina as well as possibly increase muscle building slightly.
The stimulant content is reasonable without being overwhelming and although this supplement is not overly strong, we think that as a general pre-workout supplement it should suit many people.
However, if you are looking for a strong specialised pre-workout or something that delivers a powerful serving of creatine or stimulants, this supplement is not for you.
Serving size is equal to 2 x 7g scoop (a little over 2 teaspoons).
Some customers have experienced side effects. The most common are various types of skin irritation, including:
These will be caused either by the Niacin content or the Beta Alanine which are both known for these effects.
Customers have also mentioned:
If you are very sensitive to caffeine you may notice:
Not suitable for individuals under 18. Avoid if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Speak to your physician before use if you have an underlying medical condition or are taking prescription medication.
We looked on Amazon and found there were over 1000 customer reviews at the time of writing.
Most positive reviews mention the price.
Some of the more expensive pre-work outs are better, but for the money I like it. I use it, doesn’t make me feel jittery!
I’m on my third tub and going to order again. Love the price and flavor mainly the price
Not bad at all! Mixes and dissolves well with a great taste. Good product for a low low price!!
This customer felt it was good for the average user.
Works well for the average joe. For people that are use to “extreme” pre-workout drinks this will not do. For me, it gave me energy and a good pump, some tingling, but not too bad. What I liked the most is how I really felt pumped after using it. I typically drink it then do 15 minutes of cardio, then weights, so it has time to get working.
Some customers like the flavours (and the price).
Really enjoyed this product. No tingles. No crash and it actually tastes really good. I started with half a scoop and worked up to a full one. There’s a good amount of product for the price point…
There are also negative comments. Side effects are mentioned:
This was making me sick. I thought it was just the food I ate that day but it happened every single time I took it…
It made my skin all over my body turn red and itched so bad that it actually hurt stinging I can’t use this product
Many people say it does not work for them.
This stuff has a great Kool-aid taste, unfortunately that’s all the good I can say. This stuff gave me NO BOOST for my two hour workout. I gifted this to a buddy of mine, he seems to think it’s okay.
You can buy Pre-Workout Explosion from a wide range of outlets across the USA, including Walmart and Lucky Vitamin. It is also on sale direct from the official Six Star Pro Nutrition website and via Amazon.
