Every time you hit the gym is like another uphill battle. You vs the iron for the next hour or two. For that kind of battle, you need a pre workout designed to go to war with you. And that’s what AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout was exactly made for.
Many supplements claim to be big and battle-ready, but so far only AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout fit both categories: Boasting a HUGE formulation and named after the Greek God of War himself.
Is AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout truly a war god’s supplement or is it just another marketing tactic? Read my AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout review to find out!

AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout Review: ingredients list
AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout is packing some serious heat, bro. It has six blends and a total of sixteen ingredients. You read that right: SIXTEEN. I normally do a mad facepalm, but the 12.4 g serving size gives me a bit of hope.
This blend takes the most serving dose in AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout, occuping more than 75% of the entire blend! Based on the name, this seems to be AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout’s driving force.
- At 4.3 grams, this super pump ingredient is in a really great dosage. Get ready to feel so pumped, you might just end up lifting your spotter. The only downside is, we didn’t get the Citrulline Malate form (aka the best form of citrulline for absorption).
- Beta alanine. This is the ingredient responsible for making you itch when ingesting pre workouts. The itches are worth it, though, as Beta alanine is known to help improve muscle endurance as well as help with muscle growth. At 3.2 grams, I’m liking the dosage very much.
- Betaine Anhydrous. Betaine is like a combination of beta alanine and citrulline in how it helps with lifting strength and endurance as well as contribute to the pump feel. The 1 gram dose may seem small, but then again it’s an accessory ingredient and not the main one.
- Vitamin B3 is actually a really good vasodilator, an effect that helps improve blood circulation.
GODLIKE Energy Surge
Like the name implies, this blend is all about raw energy. Energy can be delivered in various ways, and I think AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout knows that too based on the ingredients I’m seeing. One thing’s for sure: This blend ain’t no overcomplicated caffeine mix.
- Lotus Leaf Extract 10:1. Lotus leaf is actually known to boost energy indirectly by means of thermogenesis aka fat burning.
- Beta Phenylethylamine. Also known as BPEA, this compound is also called the beta version of meth because structure-wise, the only difference is where the ethyl chain is attached. Yup, that one bond can make a world of difference in chemistry, bro. Even if it’s a different chemical altogether, the FDA hates it and will get you in trouble if you’re into competing.
- The 300 mg shotgun to the face AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout gives us can either be good or really, really bad. I prefer a max of 250 mg for my caffeine because it’s the dosage that isn’t known to build tolerance (rendering high caffeine dosages useless) and a dose that isn’t as prone to side effects. For context, 300 mg is equivalent to three cups of brewed coffee. For one gulp, that’s a lot of coffee, bro.
- Grains of Paradise std to 12.5% Paradol. This is another fat burner similar to lotus extract. It promotes thermogenesis which results to increase in body temperature which then causes you to sweat. A lot. It’s fat burning technique also involves a form of fat storage blocking.
- Rauwolfia std. to 90% yohimbine. Yohimbine is a compound known to tweak the thyroid into producing fat burning hormones and pretty much revving you up for a good fat burning session. The downside is, it’s also known to raise heart rates and even blood pressure. You shouldn’t worry about those effects, though, as AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout only gave us 225 mcg or just 0.2 mg, far from the usual dose of 5-10 mg I’ve seen.
MIND X MUSCLE Fusion
I’m going to assume this is a nootropic blend based on the blend name. Nootropics aren’t new in pre workouts, but they’re not exactly a popular addition either.
- Alpha GPC 50%. This is actually a really powerful nootropic that helps with brain health as well as give you a brain boost via brain cell formation. It grants you great focus too.
- This is actually a fat burner that has a bitter orange origin similar to synephrine. It works on your adrenaline which pretty much supports a longer fat-burning mode.
- Huperzine A 1%. Huperzine helps with memory and mental performance. It also works in amazingly small dosages, but I think even 100 mcg or 0.1 mg is too small. The dosages I’m used to seeing is at 200 mcg or 0.2 mg.
I guess this is another nootropic blend, but for stress.
- Chinese Skullcap 4:1. This is actually an anti-inflammatory and joint-pain ingredient, but as a nootropic it can work on anxiety too.
- It works like synephrine as a fat burner, so we’re not sure why it’s added in a “mood boost” blend. And, it’s also banned. Sorry, bro.
Okay, I honestly don’t know what this “Anti-crash” protocol is all about. Most likely it’s a blend to counter the effects of caffeine. However, the sole ingredient added here makes me question that idea.
- Velvet Bean std. to 15% L-Dopa. This is actually a testosterone booster and has been shown to boost testosterone by almost 40% in men with low testosterone. How is this an “anti-crash” ingredient?
Another anti-stress blend. Seriously? Why separate them into various blends?!
- Rhodiola Rosea std. to 3% Rosavin 2% Salidroside. Rhodiola rosea is an herb that helps keep you mentally sound during the toughest workouts. It basically fights off anxiety and keeps you from telling yourself how bad that last set was. At 100 mg, it’s dosed low, but the fact that this is more of a bonus ingredient than a key ingredient makes me tolerate the dosage.
AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout Review: formula analysis
I’m not a fan of huge formulations because you are presented with too many ingredients and more reasons to mess , but I think AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout has made theirs more or less decent, with most of the flaws coming from redundant additions.
For the most part, I see the Hyper-Pump Catalyst and Godlike Energy Surge being effective. These two blends got the most of the serving size and comes with ingredients that are functional and synergistic.
If AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout was made up of only these two blends, it would have been a really good pre workout already. Which is why I’m confused as to why they thought it was a good idea to add so much more.
The Mind x Muscle fusion is supposed to be a focus-nootropic blend, but they added hordenine – a fat burner – for some unknown reason. The Mood-Lift Matrix has a banned substance that doesn’t even work on stress.
The Anti-Crash protocol makes use of a testosterone booster. There’s a good chance I might have missed a study that singled out the “anti-crash” benefit, but that only means this perk is not even considered it’s true purpose.
Their Anti-Adapt regimen blend is poorly named. If their intent was to show that rhodiola is an amazing adaptogen, using ANTI sort of negates the idea completely. Also, why not put rhodiola in the Mood blend? Makes the label less of a mess.
Writer’s Note: I browsed their website and found they actually have references to prove each ingredient “benefit,” but they’re reaching. Seriously, the description for Velvet Bean highlights L-Dopa despite numerous trials using velvet bean for testosterone boosting. My point is, they made use of known ingredients for their secondary or tertiary benefits. Why not just use the actual ingredients known for the benefits they want, right?
Arez God of the Gym vs Arez Titanium: What’s the difference?
When I was doing my review of AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout, I stumbled upon a product called Arez Titanium. Here’s the formula:
As you can see, Arez Titanium is literally a “cleaner” version of AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout. It doesn’t have some of the more redundant ingredients, but it still possesses more or less the same kind of quality you would expect to get from AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout.
So essentially, AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout is a “bigger” version of Arez Titanium. Despite this fact, however, I find myself preferring Arez Titanium if only because Arez Titanium doesn’t go about adding unnecessary stuff in their formula.
So, does AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout work?
It works as a really potent pre workout. It gives a lot of energy, strength, and pump. I’m also seeing a good potential for focus and anti-stress here.
Does AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout have a lot of caffeine?
300 mg of caffeine is a lot. It’s like downing 3 cups of brewed coffee in one go, and you’re definitely going to feel that.
So, is AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout any good or just hype?
The hyper around AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout is clearly due to 75% of the formula, and not the whole thing. I don’t see this not working or not giving users the effects they expect, but at the same time I think they added too many ingredients just to say their product is bigger.
Benefits and Side effects
You will get pumped. You will feel jacked. You will feel like lifting your bench press buddy. After those feelings disappear, its post-workout benefits will start to kick in, maximizing muscle growth and recovery.
AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout’s made for fans of supplements that use a lot of rare ingredients to get things done. It’s an exciting and controversial supplement and I’m sure you know a few guys who don’t mind taking banned substances.
There’s a lot of ingredients here, so the potential for side effects is not low. However, the side effects you have to worry about will come mainly from caffeine, beta alanine, and the fact that it contains a banned substance.

AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout Review: summary
AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout is perhaps the biggest pre workout the company has ever produced. It takes a lot of supplement understanding and marketing balls to come out with something this big. It will get you pumped up, energized, and basically combat ready for the gym.
With that said, the flaws I’ve seen are also too big to ignore.
There are far too many ingredients which makes it hard for synergy to take place. Not to mention the number of things that can mess you up is a great risk. Then there’s also the fact that they’re using a banned substance which will definitely turn some of its market away.
All in all, AREZ God of the Gym Pre-Workout is a great pre workout. If you can ignore some of the flaws I pointed out, this should satisfy your cravings for something exciting and risky.
