‘Merica Labz Red, White, and BOOM: A Pre Workout Fit for the Great Awakening

Get ready for the BOOM!

For far too long, American gym rats have been enamored by “sub-maximal” workouts and “deload days”. Long gone are the days of iron slamming into the ground as chalk floods the air.

'Merica Labz Red White and Boom

‘Merica Labz Red, White, and Boom has been reformulated, and it’s in a way never before seen!

‘Merica Labz has recognized this shift in our culture and has come guns a BLAZIN’ to rectify it. Through Red, White, and BOOM, they’re trying to make America Swole Again.

Red, White, and BOOM Updated: A Pre Workout Fit For the Great Awakening

Patriots be proud: The premise behind the ‘Merica Labz has been a knockout success – as seen in our Patriots Whey review! The brand set forth to replicate that feeling of pride you get on national holidays – but now you get it every day you hit the gym. That feel-good moment when the fireworks are exploding all around you while the Star-Spangled Banner blasts in the background, reminding the world that you are willing to fight for your freedom, otherwise there’s nothing else worth training for.

Mega-Dosing the Focus Ingredients

‘Merica Labz took that positive sensation and combine it with a balls-to-the-wall stimulant-based pre workout, which has recently been updated with a ton of choline and a massive dose of L-Tyrosine for crazy focus — more than we’ve ever seen in any pre workout. We should get a Patriotic feel-great workout here that’ll throw us right into the fray.

Did ‘Merica Labz hit the mark? Let’s find out, but first you can check the prices on PricePlow and sign up for Merica Labz’ updates:

Not to be confused with the Red, White, and Boom Energy Drink by Merica Labz’, this is a powdered pre workout supplement, and it was made by some very stable geniuses:

The Red, White, and Boom Ingredients

This formula is “simple” in that there’s not a billion ingredients, but powerful in that each and every one of them is dosed to the extreme.

White hats worldwide, let it be known: Just to get it out of the way, note that you’re going to have 400mg caffeine in each serving, and that’s not the only stimulatory ingredient.

But also note that if you partial-scoop it (recommended for starters), you’ll still get legit doses of everything else! Let’s have at it:

  • L-Citrulline Malate 2:1 (8,000mg)

    'Merica Labz Red White and Boom Ingredients

    Feast your eyes on this revamped formula, and note the massively woke AF tyrosine and choline doses on top of the energy!

    ‘Merica Labz starts off the formula strong with a beyond-clinically-dosed serving of citrulline malate. Through this massive dose of citrulline malate (which provides 5.333g citrulline and 2.667g malic acid), you can expect the vasodilation benefits associated with this ingredient.

    Upon ingestion, citrulline is eventually converted into arginine by a slew of enzymes. Arginine then helps the body produces more nitric oxide than usual, which expands your blood vessels (this is known as vasodilation). Your now-wider blood vessels will help crush it in the gym by speeding up your body’s nutrient delivery system, assisting in your pump, and even improving your overall workout recovery capabilities.[1-3]

    Solid dose allows for partial-scooping to assess stim-tolerance

    We’re normally happy with a minimum of 3g citrulline, and love it when it starts hitting 4g. 5.333g out of the 8g 2:1 citrulline malate means that we can get bombed out on one scoop, or start easy and still get solid pumps at ½ to ¾ scoop (which is what a smart Patriot should do to adjust)!

  • Creatine Monohydrate (5,000mg)

    Creatine Monohydrate is the gold standard of creatine supplementation. Almost every investigation into the effects of creatine use creatine monohydrate instead of the various ‘exotic’ ‘forms. The great part? It’s also the cheapest form of creatine available today!

    Merica Labz

    ‘Merica Labz is charging forward and changing what energy can be about with its Red, White and Blue attitude!

    The best part? 3g per serving is likely enough for most individuals, if taking it every day – but you get the full 5g here! Finally!

    Creatine has an absolute goldmine of studies available to tout its benefits, including increased muscle size and power, lean mass gains because of handling more volume, decreased fatigue, and even improved cellular hydration.[4-8]

    We consider 3g the minimum daily dose you’ll want to get, so once again, you can partial-scoop Red, White, and Boom and still be good to go for the day here. But for the full-sized guys who want the real-deal 5g and not this 3g business, then full-scoop it, get the 400mg caffeine, and boom – you’re done for the day.

  • Beta Alanine (3,200mg)

    Ah, the great divider of the PricePlow team. When we see a dose this high, a civil war breaks out in the studio. CJ takes up arms against those that chase the tingles that this ingredient provides. But for those that embrace the tingles of godliness, beta-alanine is a great endurance-booster for most athletes, especially if performing training in 1-4 minute range.

    In the body, beta alanine teams up with carnosine to shuttle lactic acid out of your muscle bellies. This will let you deal with longer sets more effectively, especially those that last over 60 seconds.[9]  Beta alanine will also help you push exhaustion away which may help you improve your cardiovascular exercises.[10]

    Red, White, and Boom

    This year, we make our founding fathers proud, as we take our gainz — and our country — back to where they belong!

    So get ready to put fatigue away in Guantanamo Bay — but beware the tingles! This is the clinical daily dose, all in one scoop! You’ll probably be feeling this, but if not, you should definitely feel what’s next:

  • L-Tyrosine (3,000mg)

    Wow! So this is how you replace ingredients like DMHA in a formula.

    L-Tyrosine is by far the best form of tyrosine supplementation. Tyrosine is the building block of our favorite neurotransmitters, including dopamine and norepinephrine. Taking more tyrosine, therefore, will lead to higher levels of these two alert-mode powerhouses.[11] Higher levels of these catecholamines will then give you better focus and lower your stress and anxiety levels.

    Think of Tyrosine as an “on-switch” to the sympathetic nervous system. The sympathetic system, better known as the “fight or flight” system of the body, uses norepinephrine to put your body into “fight mode” – exactly what we need for the next revolution!

    High Dose alert!

    Not only is L-Tyrosine the best form of tyrosine supplementation, 3g is also a gigantic dose. We normally set a “dose alert” with 2g, but ‘Merica Labz is venturing into unknown pre workout territory here, but note that Mike has personally taken as much as 5g at a time, so it’s not a dose we’re intimidated by – more likely excited someone’s giving this level a shot! So we think they may be onto something with this aspect of the formula.

  • Choline Bitartrate (2,000mg)

    Choline Weight Loss

    We’re not even here for weight loss, but when researchers start dosing choline around 2g on athletes, they started getting some very interesting effects!

    Choline has been heavily embraced by the industry in 2018, and we never ever complain about its inclusion. While ‘Merica Labz chose to go with the lesser-bioavailable form in choline bitartrate, they definitely make up for it by providing a large dose, and seeing it next to 3g L-Tyrosine up above is absolutely exciting.

    Choline is a building block of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter involved in a huge amount of functions the body relies on for athletic endeavour. By supplementing choline, you increase the levels of acetylcholine available for your body to use. Since acetylcholine is associated with both learning and muscle contractions, you can expect enhanced focus and muscle output from this dose.[12-13]

    To top it off, 2g is what was used in studies promoting weight loss in women, so we know it’s efficacious to some levels!

  • Caffeine Anhydrous (400mg)

    400 is the new 300!

    The average pre-workout once contained between 100-200mg of caffeine per serving, but those days are long gone, since that smaller dose led to the “3 scoops minimum” mentality amongst gym rats.

    ‘Merica Labz is definitely going for the title of “1 scoop wonder” with the dosages present in Red, White, and BOOM. With 400mg of caffeine per scoop, we’d recommend that you stick to one scoop max per day, but even more importantly, start with half of a scoop to assess, as mentioned numerous times above.

    Caffeine Peak Power

    400mg caffeine is the dose that will get most people closest to 5-6mg/kg per day, where several research studies have proven successful.

    This dose will wake your ass up and even make you more powerful.[14-16] That’s right, certain individuals get strength gains at this dose, assuming you’re under 175lbs or so, that becomes a more clinical “claim” with research behind it (5-6mg caffeine per kg of bodyweight is where the gains occurred – this means individuals between 145-175lbs).

    You might not sleep after it, but hey… take it early enough and it’s well worth it… so long as your tolerance is high enough! Everyone else is going to be in the ⅔ – ¾ scoop territory.

  • Theacrine (250mg as Teacrine 40% yielding 100mg)

    Theacrine is another ingredient that is popping up everywhere, and it’s like caffeine in that they’re both xanthine-based stimulants.[17] However, theacrine lasts longer and may be a “smoother” stimulant experience. It seems to ‘amplify’ other things it’s with, and in this case, it’s with a crazy dose of caffeine!

    Theacrine

    Want longer-lasting energy? Here it is. Effect Size of 200 mg dose of Teacrine over course of 7-day repeated dose study relative to baseline on: Energy: 0.63, Motivation to Exercise: 0.58, Concentration: 0.6

    Even better, humans also don’t seem to build up much of a resistance to theacrine’s effects. Since the main downside of caffeine is the immense tolerance, you can build towards it overtime, theacrine is a great way to ensure you always have energy.

    Now the best part – this is the dose we like! You ultimately get 100mg Theacrine, and that’s where we really start feeling the flow with it. Since raw Theacrine tastes so bitter, ‘Merica Labz opted to put Compound Solutions’ “Tasteless Theacrine” in it, where they’ve made it palatable, but had to “water it down” to make that happen. To make up for the lost space, they then blasted the dose up to 250mg, giving us the 100mg we love in a full scoop! Perfect!

Red White and Boom Pre Workout

Your High Caliber Pre Workout Ammunition has arrived just in time to bring the PAIN to the weights… and to the traitors alike!

Flavors

You know the game, especially if you’ve seen our Patriot’s Whey review – these guys keep the flavors fresh!

‘Merica Labz came up with some great ones for Red, White, and Boom.

Merica Labz Mount Crushmore

Ready to climb to the top of Mount Crushmore?!

  1. In the original version of this supplement, “Freedom” may be the best flavor name we’ve seen in a long, long time. This is a Bomb Pop flavor.
  2. “Make America Grape” again should please those that always chase after the artificial grape candy-taste. It’s always been odd to us that grape is a harder to find pre-workout flavor these days, so kudos to ‘Merica Labz for embracing the grape.
  3. Blood, Sweat, and Tears is a watermelon, strawberry, and coconut combination – kind of like the Labz’s spin on “Tiger’s Blood”
  4. If you like it orange-flavored, then check out “Merica Made” to round out the flavor offerings.

So, for now, we have four distinct and interesting flavor choices – with a little bit of old school, a little bit of “new school” creativity. Exactly what we like!

Sweetened with sucralose, and one flavor has stevia too

When we saw “naturally and artificially flavored”, we had to look. This often means there’s stevia present, which could wreck a flavor system if not done correctly. Thankfully, all of the products are using sucralose for the flavor, while “Make America Grape Again” has a dash of added stevia.

It’s great to go all-natural, but when it comes to sweeteners, sucralose is where it’s at.

Conclusion: TRUST THE PLAN

‘Merica Labz surprised us with this reformulation – and in a good way. Other brands have replaced DMHA with a smattering of stimulants. Red, White, and BOOM is different in that they went with Theacrine and monster doses of tyrosine and choline, something everyone should enjoy!

Merica Labz Red White Boom

Get ready to get focused, the new Red, White, and Boom is not for socialist sissies

The BOOM is still a true one-scoop pre-workout that covers its bases well, and Team PricePlow is pleased. The 400mg dose of caffeine may turn off some customers though, but still – you have enough citrulline to get a pump even on an underwhelming scoop!

‘Merica Labz deserves additional props for avoiding Alpha-yohimbine as a sensory ingredient, which has been popping up everywhere and rendering the PricePlow team anxious messes with cold sweats. (Isn’t it sad we have to say this right now?)

We recommend giving the new Red, White, and BOOM with the small caveat of maybe starting off with ⅔ to ¾ of a scoop. Make sure you can handle the massive caffeine boost before you take a full dose of the product, and then get ready to bring in the Great New Awakening with a BOOM!

Godspeed, Patriots.
