Overall, I am really impressed with Man Sports’ Game Day pre workout. I’ve used it on several occasions and plan to continue using it.
If you’re on the fence or looking for a great pre workout – I’d say go for it. It’s a solid “daily driver” pre workout that is strong enough to help me with tough workouts but not too intense that I need to cycle it on/off.
I’d say I like it more than Citadel Nutrition’s Tier 1+, but not quite as much as Legion’s Pulse. It’s worth noting that Pulse is nearly twice as expensive though, which makes Game Day a great pound for pound pre workout. It’s damn hard to beat at this price point.
I love the 350 mg of caffeine and 3.2 grams of beta alanine. I feel energized, focused, and nice overall when I take Game Day pre workout.
I also am a big fan of the value here: you’re getting 30 doses for about $1.15 a serving, though I’ve seen it advertised on Amazon and Muscle & Strength for as low as $27 (less then $1.00 per serving).
In a product category where there are a lot of rip offs, Man Sports is providing a real product at a sensible price.
Pound for pound, this is a top 5 value pre workout (and I’ve seen a lot of labels).
It’d have been great if they used citrulline malate instead of L-citrulline, as citrulline malate has a greater body of scientific research backing up its efficacy.
They also included a few ingredients that I don’t personally care about, like creatine HCL, taurine, and juniperus communis. The creatine HCL is fine, but I personally don’t look for creatine in my pre workout since I take creatine daily anyway (and it doesn’t matter when you take creatine with respect to an individual training session).
These are minor points of criticism, but I think if they focused their ingredient label a bit and switched to citrulline malate they could make this very solid pre workout even better.

But don’t just take my word for it. The “stim junkie” himself, TJ, also gives Game Day his stamp of approval!
