Product Overview

ON Platinum Pre- Energy & Focus - We Saved the Best For First - Optimum Quality in a preworkout*


based on science-backed ingredients and superior quality. Platinum PRE- furthers ON's long history of setting higher standards by redefining a sports nutrition category. Now you can fuel workout performance with Platinum PRE-'s true dosages of real ingredients without anything you might have second thoughts about using every day. Each serving delivers the energy and focus you need to knock down new personal bests.*


Of course, you also expect ON to provide more, and this Platinum-level pre-workout formula delivers with efficacious dosages of L-Citrulline, Beta-Alanine, Caffeine, ON's own PhytoBlend, and metabolic and antioxidant support. Make Platinum PRE- your first choice to support gym performance and goal fulfillment.*



L-citrulline is a precursor to Nitric Oxide (N.O.) synthesis and may support performance during high-intensity exercise. Each dose in PLATINUM PRE- combines micronized L-citrulline with an exclusive patent-pending peptide delivery system.*

Pre Dial-Up


Beta-alanine is a key building block for carnosine – a compound that helps neutralize acidic byproducts generated during high-intensity training. Research suggests that daily supplementation increases muscle carnosine levels, supporting harder and longer training sessions.*


Capsicum from chili peppers provides metabolic support.* The capsicum dose in PLATINUM PRE- has been encapsulated so it doesn't interfere
with the refreshing fruit flavor.


As the subject of numerous studies, caffeine is one of the most well-researched performance supporting compounds. Along with increased energy and alertness, caffeine has been suggested to help sharpen mental focus and reduce the perception of physical effort during exercise.*


A blend of Beat Juice Powder, Grape Seed Extract and Citrus Bioflavonoids with a powerful dose of vitamin C provides antioxidant support to round out this comprehensive pre-workout formula.*

Taste like a chemical apple juice and have an itch after a few mins using this product. But after 30 mins with workout and it has gone. I am sure it has a lot of substitute sweetener in this product. I want it has no flavor because I can't accept sweet things. But it is a great pre workout

This is a good solid pre-workout. It's not going to give you crazy intensity with the beta-alanine itch (unless you take 2 scoops), but it will give you smooth energy. Twisted Apple is by far the best flavor.

This is my favorite pre workout , I alternate between this and C4 but this one is just as strong every time I take it. I feel like I have had the best lifts on this and gave built up some muscle while taking . And there is also some kind of pepper flakes in this that will rock your world!

This is a good pre-workout however I cannot get over the taste. It has a weird aftertaste and I do not like it.

A good preworkout formula, that delivers great amount of energy and helps to burn unnecessary fats due to capsaicin presence in it. Helps to improve energy. Simple but effective. The only drawbacks are lack creatine in it and aftertaste burning sensation

Love this preworkout product. It gives me just enough of a boost to get work done in the gym and not feel jittery. I have been taking this as my pre workout for years now and I love it.

This is my favorite PWO. I've been using for over a year, but just recently ran out and tried the ON Gold Standard PRE. Defenatly not as good as this product. Same company and same Beta-Alanine content, however PRE works so much better for me. I get a great energy boost that lasts my workout and the Beta-Alanine works great (I like the tingling skin effect). Gold Standard PRE didn't do either for me. End result, I found a PWO that I love and that works great every time. I'm not switching again! Keeping this stuff stocked.

I do not prefer to use creatine due to its side effects. However, most of the pre-workouts contain creatine. ON Platinum Pre is the best creatine-free Pre-Workout in the market.

Fantastic product! I have been using it for a long time. I have tried a ton of pre-workouts over the last 6 years but this one is by far the best. It doesn't give me the jitters and i don't get the post workout bloat i got with other products.

Platinum Pre- is hands-down THE best pwo I have ever tried. I really dislike pwos that are overly sweet or sour. I tend to mix about 12-15 oz of water instead of the recommended 6-10oz so I suppose that could be a contributing factor to the taste. I got the raspberry lemonade flavor and it was amazing, compared to C4s raspberry lemonade, it is a lot less sour and sweet. It tastes like an actual refreshing lemonade instead of some type of sugary candy. As for the effects this pwo was perfect for what I was looking for. I like the extra boost of energy from pwos but I've found many of them to be overly powerful. A lot of them feel like I have a huge rush for like 30min then I just crash. Some, like Precision Engineered's Haymaker almost made me faint. That could be due to the fact that it has practically double the beta alanine or higher caffeine content though. Platinum Pre- gives me a great feeling concentration and lasting energy throughout my workouts. I only take one scoop and it is just right. With a lot of other products I would have to up my dosage to 2 scoops which eventually made a 30 serving container only last 15-20. For those of you who love to feel super amped you may have to take the full 2 scoop dose in order to achieve the effects you're looking for so for the price you may want to consider other options. As for the spiciness I had heard numerous people complain about, it is there. Not a crazy heat by any means, almost like kind of a black pepper kind of heat and for me it usually only comes in the last sip. Personally I like it, but I also love spicy foods. I suppose if you despise spicy things I would try to obtain a sample first before committing to anything. Overall this is an outstanding product and I will definitely repurchase this in the future.

I recently bought this product (not from when I opened the product I found that the lid was not secured and the inner seal was not adhered properly. The actual product was around the rim and spilling out somewhat. I emailed Optimum Nutrition customer service to no avail. The customer service rep said the product was fine even though the MFD (manufacture date) was a year ago and who knows how long the seal has been compromised. Long story short do NOT expect to have a quality customer service experience with Optimum Nutrition if you have an issue with a product. Sadly I threw away my purchase because I can not guarantee if the product was tampered with or contaminated. Metaphorically, I threw money away. I have purchased ON products over the years and with customer service like this deters me buying from them again. Unsatisfied customer.

I love, love, love this pre workout powder! It tastes great, gives you the extra energy you need for your workout and makes you feel great after. It gives you that "tingly" feeling and I like that about it! it has definitely helped to improve my workouts. I use other pre workouts and always come back to it.

This is a good product does the job but it give me a lot of ichy skin around the face and on the palms which gets annoying

I've tried C4 by cellucor, didn't work for ****, the I tried Hyde, that didn't work. But then I got a sample pack of Platinum Pre raspberry lemonade. And I'll be the first one to tell you, this **** deserves higher then a 7 overall rating. I'd give this stuff a ten, but it gave my lips a bit of a burning sensation after taking the first serving, but within 5-10 minutes, I felt like the hulk, I had a good, solid, focused lift for about an hour and a half. I then took the second serving. And I lifted for another 3 hours feeling fresh! The crash is pretty hard though. This stuff is worth it. TRY IT!!!!
