A good pre workout nowadays is like hunting for ghosts. You see a lot of them on shelves and retail stores, but the really good brands are either out of stock or hidden somewhere among the hundreds of mediocre products.
One brand took it upon themselves to be the ghost you’re looking for. This pre-workout is aptly named Ghost Legend.
Ghost Legend looks to try and frighten the competition away with high-quality dosing, formulation, and overall synergy.
One of their guarantees is giving legendary pumps. This we gotta see.
Is Ghost Legend as badass as it sounds? Let’s find out!
Who Makes It?
Ghost Legend pre-workout is sold by the GHOST company. The company’s name is derived from the idea of being someone who has wants to be seen, heard, and recognized and has grown tired of being a bystander to life.
On their website are videos where they featured how they built the GHOST brand through various adventures all over the world .
Marketing Claims Made
The following claims were made about Ghost Legend:
- Legendary Pumps: The dosing for Ghost Legend’s pump boosting ingredients are something to behold. Not short of effective, the citrulline alone should help you feel like lifting a ton.
- Super energy: This isn’t strongly supported. At best, Ghost Legend gives you a good energy boost, but nothing too strong. If you’re a stim-freak (someone who gets by with 300 mg caffeine and up), you will not like it.
- Lots of focus: Same with energy, Ghost Legend gives focus but nothing we would refer to as “a lot” or “super.”
What’s in it?
Now, let’s take a closer look at what’s inside the Ghost Legend:
Ghost Legend Blend
- Citrulline: When it comes to pumps, citrulline is the first ingredient to come to mind. Citrulline is a precursor of the process that generates nitric oxide which then leads to muscle pumps and better lifts . While we like that we have citrulline in a respectable dosage, we prefer citrulline malate for better absorption.
- Beta-alanine as CarnoSyn: This here is considered a staple pre-workout ingredient. While it does make you itchy in high amounts, it’s a small (and at times annoying) price to pay for its benefits on muscle recovery and some added performance perk .
- Agmatine Sulfate: Agmatine sulfate is a byproduct of arginine, a compound formed just before you produce nitric oxide. Its combination with citrulline will make sure that not only will you have more nitric oxide, but also have it more sustainable .
- Norvaline: Norvaline is a special kind of pump ingredient. It removes the nitric oxide limitation, basically. It does this by reducing arginase, the enzyme that destroys arginine .
Ghost Smart Energy Blend
- Taurine: Taurine is second only to caffeine when it comes to popularity in sports and energy drinks. It’s because taurine can do a lot of good for a body at work. It helps with recovery, metabolic rate, and helps facilitate better energy usage throughout the body  .
- Caffeine: We have everyone’s favorite (or most hated) stimulant at just a shy 165 mg, which is not even two cups of coffee. We like this angle because it shows Ghost Legend isn’t trying to “cheat” their way into a pre-workout by dumping hundreds of milligrams worth of caffeine .
- Alpha GPC: Alpha GPC is quite a premium choline ingredient. It helps boost choline production and help maintain healthy brain cells .
- Rhodiola Rosea extract: Rhodiola is what you call an adaptogen, an herb that helps relieve anxiety and stress. In a pre-workout, adaptogens can help reduce the mental stress brought on by muscle fatigue .
- Di-Caffeine Malate: Di-Caffeine malate is supposedly a form of caffeine that isn’t supposed to feel like you’re burning a hole through your gut upon ingestion .
- Theobromine: Theobromine is supposed to give your brain some added focus and make you feel good overall, but the science around this antioxidant as a nootropic is not as concrete as other nootropics .
- Olive leaf extract: Olive leaf extract is often taken for its general health purposes as well as a potent source of antioxidants  .
- Nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH): This is a coenzyme prized for its dopamine-boosting effect. When you have a dopamine surge, you tend to feel good despite the stressful effects of exercise on your body .
- Rauwolfia: Like yohimbine, rauwolfia is also a stimulant that helps burn more fat. While it sounds good on paper, the dosage is not good enough plus it’s not even standardized .
Supplement Facts Label
When they said Ghost Legend will give you legendary pumps, they definitely meant it. Citrulline, Agmatine sulfate, and Norvaline all contribute to nitric oxide production. More nitric oxide translates to better vasodilation. Better vasodilation leads to better blood flow, resulting in a more efficient nutrient transfer to muscles.
In short, Ghost Legend will get you super, duper, pumped.
Their energy and focus blend are decent, to say the least, but we do like how they didn’t go overboard with caffeine and stimulants. Total caffeine content is just 265 mg, and they manage to insert theobromine and rhodiola rosea just to keep the stimulant side effects at a minimum.
The side effects you could feel would come from two sources: Beta-alanine and caffeine.
If you’re not good with coffee, don’t expect to shake hands with pure caffeine anhydrous. While just a little over 200 mg is not that bad for a lot of people, it could be a real sensitizer for a person who doesn’t know what coffee tastes like.
For beta-alanine, it’s usually the itchy feeling under your skin. This is because the molecules beta alanine has are quite large, so when they pass through your veins, they tend to bump into your nerves. This condition is called paresthesia and is temporary.
We always recommend you speak with your doctor before taking any supplements featured on this site.
How to Take It
Ghost recommends to not exceed two scoops a day. Given one scoop has 265 mg caffeine, they’re right on the mark. They also ask to mix each scoop with around 8 0z water or any other beverage of choice.
Before thinking you can handle two scoops, always start with one to assess tolerance.
Currently, Ghost Legend Pre Workout has two flavors:
- Fruit Punch
- Blue Raspberry
Number of Servings
One container has 30 servings. This should translate to 30 days, or less if you’re a tough guy who can down more than a scoop.
Top Alternative to This Product
Ghost Legend Pre Workout vs Sparta Nutrition Kraken
In terms of formula, Ghost Legend’s rival in the industry is Sparta Nutrition Kraken.
These are the ingredients Kraken pre-workout has that Ghost Legend also possesses in one serving:
- Citrulline, 2,000 mg
- Beta-alanine, 1,600 mg
- Taurine, 500 mg
- Caffeine, 125 mg
- Theobromine, 25 mg
Face to face on a one-serving basis, Ghost Legend has the upper hand when it comes to these ingredients. It has almost double the dosage for every ingredient in the list. However, when Kraken uses its two-serving recommendation, that’s when Ghost Legend makes a run for its money.
Despite losing the formula battle, you also have to consider that by double-dosing, you effectively reduce product lifespan by half.
Ghost Legend isn’t cheap, Sparta Nutrition isn’t cheap. However, Ghost Legend has created a formula that will at least let you have fun for 30 whole days. Kraken only lets you enjoy it for 20 days.
Value for money, folks.
Most people on GNC’s review page on Ghost Legend were positive for it. They praise its flavor, mental energy boost, and the right amount of pump for an entire workout.
The critics didn’t like how it wasn’t strong enough perhaps due to the moderate caffeine dosing. Some also state having stomach issues, but they also said it subsided after building a tolerance to the supplement.
Have you tried this product? Leave a review below and let us know what you think!
Without trying to sound biased, Ghost Legend is formulated in such a way that puts most pre-workouts in its category to shame.
It’s nowhere near the best, but Ghost Legend does make other trendy pre-workouts double-check their standards with its intuitive formula design and decent quality of doses and ingredients.
The only nitpicks we have are the omission of citrulline malate and its price tag.
Synergy, quality ingredients, and smart dosing strategies make Ghost Legend a true legend among its contemporaries. They may very well just scare the competition away if they improve their formula.
