One of Cellucor’s newest products in 2013 is Neon Sport Volt, a pre-workout supplement containing some of the usual suspects in pre-workout formulas, some of which are beta-alanine, caffeine, l-citrulline and rhodiola. Volt is also a creatine-free supplement.
Neon Sport Volt has many things that I am liking about it. First and foremost, the taste is extraordinary. I am normally not one to care about the taste of the supplements I take, but that is normally an important factor for people wanting to test out a new product. Volt’s mix-ability is another nice benefit. This is an attribute that I do care a lot about. I mix my pre-workout beverage with water in a plastic cup, so the ability for me to mix is easily is key. Mix it a little and you are done with it.
Since Cellucor already has one of my favorite pre-workout beverages in C4, I was wondering what the major difference would be. The main difference between their signature pre-workout C4 and Volt is the lack of creatine and nitrates in Volt. I prefer to closely monitor my supplement intake, so I like taking each by itself to know exactly how many grams of each I am ingesting.
Volt is also very affordable, more so than many other pre-workout supplements out there because a single suggested dosage amount of Volt actually works well enough. With some other pre-workout supplements, I find myself having to take multiple doses to feel the true expected affect. Volt gives me the energy and focus needed to push through a strenuous workout at an optimal level on a single dose without any side effects.
Neon Sport Volt Pre-Workout Dosage:
Neon Sport Volt is designed to be one of the strongest and most intense pre-workouts on the market today and has a recommended serving size of 5g. With some other pre-workout supplements, I have found myself having to double their recommended daily dosages, but not with Volt. 5g is plenty to get the job done.
Neon Sport Volt Pre-Workout Ingredients:
Volt’s formula revolves around beta-alanine, the commonly used anti-fatigue and endurance enhancing formula. According to the makers, Volt will contain 2 times more beta-alanine than most competing products when used at maximum dose (meaning 10g – twice the normal dosage).

A plant extract studied for its ability to improve the body’s adaptation to stress.

An increasingly popular ingredient in pre-workouts, agmatine sulfate has neuro-enhancing properties which may assist with pain and increased transport of glucose into muscles.
