Your exercise and sport ritual starts way before you even get to the gym. The ultimate workout starts begins with smart preparation. Your diet, your mindset and energy levels all play a vital role in the success of your training.
What you take prior to exercise and sport can often make or break your performance.
And Ritual Pre Workout was created with ONE purpose in mind:
To deliver you PURE PERFORMANCE from each and every single pre workout serving.
WARNING ***Ritual is not like any other pre-workout you have ever tried. It is strictly R18, it is not for first timers, and it may contain ingredients restricted by certain sporting organisations***
But one thing is certain, Ritual is one scoop of pure training intensity.
HOW IS IT DIFFERENT?
Ritual was formulated to drive personal moments of greatness and triumph; to make a REAL difference to your training performance, and for those seeking excellence from every grueling training session.
We promise you'll see results with RITUAL, guaranteed.
ANS ensured during development and trials that all contents are backed by peer-reviewed science done on real people, on athletes, not mice or cell cultures.
The CORE SIX
Beta-Alanine: A non-essential amino acid, beta-alanine combines with the amino acid histidine to form carnosine. In muscle cells carnosine buffers against the hydronium ions and lactic acid which form during exercise and can lead to muscle fatigue. Supplementation with beta-alanine can improve strength, endurance and enhance recovery. Each scoop of RITUAL™ contains 1.6g of beta-alanine.
Citrulline: The 'pump' amino acid, L-Citrulline has been clinically researched to enhance nitric oxide levels better than arginine. Studies suggest that citrulline increases the rate of ATP synthesis during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. Citrulline also reduces lactic acid and ammonia levels, which leads to better muscle performance and increased endurance.
Creapure®: The purest available Creatine monohydrate. Creatine is critical to the energy replenishment cycle of muscle. Regular use of creatine can enhance power, endurance and energy levels while exercising allowing you to train harder longer and amplify results.
Trimethylglycine: Also known as betaine anhydrous, this amino acid analogue helps reduce homocysteine levels in the body and stimulates production of creatine in muscle cells. TMG can act as a methyl donor and prevent dehydration of cells. As a supplement TMG can also amplify power output and training volume.
AgmaPure™: This patented form of 'green' agmatine sulfate is not chemically synthesized, rather derived by fermentation, making it the highest purity material available. Agmatine has several functions in the body including: amplifying nitric oxide production, stimulating the release of catecholamines, increasing GnRH levels and even potentially testosterone levels.
Xanthaurine: The active ingredient from Styphnolobium japonicum is an incredibly potent antioxidant. Its effects have been extensively studied for the promotion of enhanced endurance. Less known however is its powerful ability to amplify nitric oxide levels 300% acutely after ingestion, making it core to the 'pump' properties of RITUAL™.
The PERFORMANCE PROTOCOL
N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine: the highly soluble form of the amino acid L-Tyrosine, and an important precursor in the production of epinephrine, dopamine and norepinephrine. These hormones contribute to elevated energy, mood and mental alertness.
DN1000™: This trademarked form of Dendrobium nobile extract is concentrated 1000%. Traditionally dendrobium is used for its antioxidant and immunomodulatory properties, and has been studied for its ability to enhance the body's response to disease.
Caffeine: Caffeine is a powerful mental stimulant. It combats fatigue and can promote increase alertness and energy levels.
PEA (Phenylethylamine): PEA is a monoamine alkaloid that can improved mood, mental acuity, energy and focus. Although relatively short-lived, when combined with and MAO inhibitor, the effects can be prolonged.
Hordenine: this stimulant doubles as a potent MAO inhibitor and promotes the extended effects of monoamine compoounds.
Higenamine (Norcoclaurine): Naturally occuring in plants like Nelumbo nucifera, higenamine (or norcoclaurine) is a powerful bioactive alkaloid that acts as a beta-adrenergic receptor agonist, and can trigger an elevated thermogenic and anabolic response.
AstraGin™: This patented combination of Astralagus and Panax notoginseng amplifies the absorption of amino acids and vitamins. This maximizes the impact of the full-dosed RITUAL™ formulation.

I received the tub this morning so I was really excited to try it out. Went the usual way about taking my PWOs starting with the thermo and then 2 scoops of this. It was alright as far as energy and focus goes, but didn't really feel much of a pump or any extra strength gains. I found it to be a bit overrated. The flavour wasn't too unpleasant ( Watermelon ) and it tasted exactly like Defcon1 watermelon. Then again, who takes PWOs for the taste ? Mixed well. No crash from it which was the good part.
Candy Green Apple - 45 serves
Got it on No Whey for a really good price, thought I'd try it as everyone raves about it.
Flavour was great, could try it any time any day. The focus on was point, felt so dialed in with each rep and set. Heaps of energy.
Though I did start to get shortness of breath through the later sets, to the point where I thought I was having a panic attack. Never happened with any previous PWO I've had before....wonder if it's the Higenamine??
I have ran 2 tubs of this back to back and have to say I love it! The formula is great and because it's not too stimmy training at night and getting to sleep is not a problem. I notice my focus and intensity is higher and seem to get a great pump with this product.
not too bad the taste of the blue one was a bit yuk but gives you an intense amount of energy
I had the peach flavour. Taste wise it was good but within 10 mins id be straight to the bathroom. The pwo delivered in terms of energy and focus but like i said before id end up in the toilet before my workout so id hit the gym with an empty stomach which made it hard to have a full workout as id end up feeling sick half way into my workout
Flavours are a bit hit or miss. The blue one is average as.
But still one of the best profiles. Very thorough, the maker ANS typically release researched products - no sausage tree here.
Overall a pretty good pre workout.

Use ritual regularly and tastes ok. Get great pumps when used non regular.
Ritual will forever be my fall back. I continued to get the most effective I've ever gotten out of preworkout right until the very end of the tub. Mixing was good, taste was amazing, kicked in quickly, lasted long enough, great energy, sweet pump, and no crash. I would always recommend Ritual to anyway who wants a simple, solid preworkout.
I really enjoyed this pre workout and i take it now on a regular basis i started off with one scoop and i increased it to 2 scoops as i felt i could tolerate it a bit more due to having stims on a regular basis. But now i only usethis pre workout 1-2 times a week and i only need 1 scoop! i felt i didnt get a crash at all which i LOVED! and i felt it within 15 minutes! as im a cross fitter i normally use this product for heavy lifting! gets me going alright! i was a bit disappointed with the peach mango twist flavour.. but the fruity punch flavour was definitely for me!
Got this on a deal with n-pro as always wanted to try it. Got the green apple, not a fan of the flavour, quite bitter and tart, but don't by a pre for the flavour, just a bonus if its tasty. Would prefer the formula to be fully disclosed on there label. Took it at 5am and on the drive to the gym I could feel I'm gonna need the toilet asap. This stuff went straight through me and constant farts during my workout( sorry for the detail). But What a great workout I had(1.5 scoops), the focus was unreal, energy was through the roof and surprisingly the pump was great, a great product apart from the non discloser, taste and diuretic issues:P
Finish a tub of Icy Blue Freez Ritual sometimes in last year.
Great focus. I never responded well to dendrobium product except Ritual. Used 2 scoops during my 1st session with Ritual and i almost puke. Perhaps too strong for me. Then i gradually increased from 1 scoop, 1.5 to 2 scoops. I felt still plenty of gas in my tank after i completed my 60 mins workout. No crash.
Side effect : i was unable to sleep until 2 or 3 a.m. if taken after 6 p.m. I believe i was too sensitive with dendrobium.
Overall when I had my first serving of ritual felt like I lighting went through me plus my mind was thinking gym hear I come.
The flavour candy green apple dose remind of the taste from a green apple
Notice the ritual is very easy to mix in my shaker unlike compare to other pre workout supplenments that I have used in the past where I have to give my shaker a good shake.
The effectiveness of the ritual has made have a nasty quad train and thinking Zimmer frame please .
This taste amazing!! I wasnt expecting much the first time I used this, thought it was all hyped....nothing comes close to this product in terms of PWO and ive tried almost all of them. Focus it gives you is crazy, the stim it gives you is just the right amount, I was lifting heavier and would be able to do more reps than I usually could, would highly recommend this product.
What can I can say... I have a very high stim tolerance, so I stack with 2caps of phenyl core... BOOM!!! This combo delivered the stim I needed to push me through my plateau. I was struggling the last month to push 180kg dead lifts. Today I nailed 240kg! Right amount of beta alanine to give me the extra reps as well. The pump... Put it this way I could not get my singlet off before having my showe, my back shoulders and arms were super tight. This is definitely the best pow I have ever consumed and recommend the green apple as this tastes fantastic. 10 out of 10.
I have been training for over 10 years now and I have tried it all , I'm completely in love with this pre workout nothing has come close to the energy and strength rush I get from ritual, the taste is fantastic. I love the fact that it has no crash so I can get a awesome pump at the gym in the morning and be able to go out and enjoy the rest of my day not worrying about being tired later. this in my #Ritualforlife
I have only tried the blue flavour which tasted like blueberries and I love blueberry flavour anyway. Taste and mixability were great, easy to prepare and drink. Pump was enhanced but need to take 2 scoops to really feel the effects. Crash from this was mild but always made me feel a bit down and depressed for some reason, lasted 1-2 hrs after workout. No other PWO had that effect on me very weird.
Woah, this stuff is a serious killer for me. Check your sensitivity levels first! Overdosing will end up with headaches, the gitters or other negative effects, but getting just the right dose for your body type/size as a pre-workout, you can feel it's effects. Helps with those last few reps. Taste is average, but fine. Skin may crawl.
Just purchased a second tub of Ritual. Great product overall which hits the spot in all the right places. Probably better for those who don't like overbearing stim or prickly effects, but still crave a boost in energy before and during their workout.
Was keen to try the new flavour rituals,having tried Apple (Oven cleaner) and Blue...something (zombie chew)
Watermelon was bloody yum as watermelon goes.
The usual,Ritual is by far my favourite PWO to date.
I recommend this to everybody who asks me what i take as far as supplements are concerned.
ANS can do no wrong.
Much performance, such ritual, much WOW
Hands down the best PWO I've had. Used to like Juggernaut and SuperDrive, now I'm a convert to ANS. The peach
Green apple tastes like crap but I had a mean workout with good clean energy.
The single best PWO i've ever used, immense energy and focus. Great pump and good value for money.
Not often I say I am impressed by a supplement... but I'll say it for Ritual! It was awesome. Fairly long lasting pump, good smooth energy flow from stimulants and didn't give any crash or anything. Tasted pretty good too seems to have everything. Seems like only the best quality ingredients went into this.
I've sampled and tried a few different PWO's lately..... nothing comes close to ANS Ritual for mental focus and physical drive. Actually had to consciously hard things down habit throughout a heavy training session for fear of over-training..........
Tastes OK when compared to other brands of pre workouts, I've spent a few dollars over the years trying out a few so-called strongest and most powerful pre workouts which end up being shitty and ineffective, but this actually works.................... will definately be placing an order for this soon
Amazing stuff.. thanks for Xplosive supplements for giving me the sample.. so effective boost good energy level to push more weight.. overall the taste and flavor was awesome.. will recommend this product highly. cheers
Faultless, I've used about 4-5 tubs of this stuff.. Just cracked into a peach mango.. and from the first smell you get when you open the tub you just want to eat it.. It smells that good!
Taste is faultless of the peach pango.
Formula is amazing..
Effects and performance even better.
Icy blue freeze flavour is great. Peach Mango twist? One of the latest flavours. I dear you to open the container and not drool!
I was so excited, I took it round the gym and let people smell it.... Weird for some perhaps?
As per the Icy Blue, mixes well, tastes great, works! I am going through a strength phase at the moment and this is getting me through the exhausting workout. Love this stuff.
this is a test.
I recently started using this supplement,
I have the blue ice flavour, it tastes a lot better
Then my usual pre workout(craze).
The effects of two scoops gives me the energy
And focus to have a session in the morning go
To work then get home and not feel restless.
The effects usually wear of after dinner, which is great.
Far better than other pre workouts I've tried!
Bought this as everyone seemed to love this stuff,
Great looking container and inside it smells amazing ( Blue ice )
Taste is somewhat identical to BSN's Hyper FX Blue ras without the bicarbonate and a milder flavour too.
Profile of this is just awesome,ANS obviously know their shit and their demographic very well cause there isnt any BS ingredients( non tested just theorised to work )in it.
15 min after drinking this and have been up for 12 hours+ already with 2 gym sessions im feeling alert and rearing for number 3 :D
Coming from someone who has abused stimulants more so than most whilst i was a Pro-gamer 1 scoop and i could feel it working its magic.
Amazing stuff ANS defo my PWO now.
its the first time that i tried this pre workout,and i feel like i want to workout all day haha. i have the blue mint one, it taste nice.
Maaaateeee this stuff is delicious in my opinion. I have the blue ice flavour and it tastes like those old school ka bluey lollies from the 90's. Quite refreshing with super chilled water.
This mixes pretty well generally but on the odd occasion it had little yellow bits at the bottom and white floaty bits. I ended up just drinking it anyway.
This stuff really kicked my ass. Gave me so much oomph and drive. I felt like super saiyan goku. I only ever take one scoop and over the duration of 2 months I still get quite a kick from it.
Overall I eould recommend this product to anyone who has been on pwos like superpump max, craze, curse, 1mr etc. This is the real deal mate
At first the powder smelt reminded me of one of those individually wrapped green apple lollies dairy owners sell in 50c lolly bags, after adding the powder to water the smell remanded was getting excited to have a mouthful or amazingness. 1st small sip 10/10, kept drinking 9,8,7,6/10 the more I drank the less it tasted like anything but green apple, eventually turning into something very average. Put I don't drink a pre workout for the taste and it did not leave a bad after taste either.
The powder evaporated into my little Xplosiv shaker cup. shook for like 5 seconds and nothing was left, only a tiny bit of froth immediately after shaking which dispersed quickly. Post drinking there was no residue of powder left.
ANS has done well with there research behind this product. They have used a list of ingredients that have been studied and proven to work and at great dosages too!
Personally I think a heaped or 1.5 scoop would get me giving this a 10/10.
I didn't feel as if it was a huge hit it the stim feild.
I had pretty good focus and a good buzz of energy, but did not feel it was hard hitting as a single scoop of MR hyde.
The pump and vascularity however was some of the best ive ever had from a pre.
One thing I felt from this which I haven't felt from any other pre workout was a long stim effect, a good 3 hours after my workout my energy levels and levels of focus and awareness were still elivated.
For a single serv, this product is among my top two. Previous PWO ive had to have at least 1.5-2 scoops to receive the same pump and energy results i got from this.
Thanks for the sample that came with my mr hyde purchase
Flavour: green apple candy
Taste: 10/10 i loved how my mouth smell like apple candy for the whole workout :)
Mixability: 10/10, dissolved , no clumps in shaker
Formula :10/10 has the most amazing ingredient list which lacks in other preworkouts
Did only 15 mins out of my 60 min cardio and i was amazed at how fast i was already sweating..added on 60min of weights and resistance exercise.I cannot wait to finnish my tub of mr hyde and get me some ritual plus looking forward to stacking ritual with diablo.
Overall:10/10 best PW
Wow...love this stuff. New #1 preworkout by far. Helps power me through my workouts with endless energy and crazy endurance.
Great flavor too - best green apple I've tried.
This was one of the first pre-works and the one i always resort back to while testing others, the energy and motivation it gives you is incredible, you can really push those old limits. By far the best i've come across.
I liked the taste but was far too strong for me. Gave me extreme shortness of breath for at least 3-4 hours after taking it which I hated. Did give a good boost for the workout though. Obviously would be great for bigger than 58kg females or males.
ive had a sample of this and would highly recpmend it.
the taste 10 out of 10
I thought it would be sweet and have a yucky after taste but was shocked when tasted it.
my training partner was shocked on my focus and the amount of energy I had during and after training. I done a personal best too
no crash good. get this if you want to maxx your results
I received a sample of this in a tiny little sachet
Taste – 9/10
Consistency – 10/10 not grainy and gluggy like some others
Formula – 9/10 quick acting and long lasting
Overall score – 9/10
I had the sweats to the baddest with this must have lost a few kgs of water but overall one of the best tasting and strong pre workouts ive tried. The no crash is also great. Would recommend
I received a sample of this from Xplosive and was really impressed with this product.
Taste - 9/10
At first I thought it tasted a bit too sweet but I diluted it down and it was much better.
Consistency - 10/10
Easy to mix.
Formula - 10/10
Good steady energy.
Overall score - 10/10
I liked this more than C4. I didn't get any itchy tingles, shakes, or crash and I've never sweated so much with any other product I've tried.
Ive used itfor 2 weeks now, it lacks abit of pump but gives a long laating focus, green aplles not too bad tasting. Getz a bit frothy when mixing. One of the better pre workouts iv had that doesnt give me headaches or crashes.
decent pre workout, but i found that Hyde and Craze definitely hit harder. 7/10
Got the candy green apple and it wasn't really my thing (if you like things like midori etc you'd probably enjoy it) 6/10
I got a sample of green apple, it smells soooo yummy, like apple candy, so it was a real shock when I tasted it: very sweet, sickly even and not a good taste, I had to skull it back! So I'm confused as to why other reviews say it tastes good? But other than that, it was a good product for getting revved up for training.
Taste - 5/10
Consistency - 10/10
Formula - 910
Overall score - 7/10
Damn good pre-workout. I've used it for a couple of weeks now so I feel like I can give a decent objective review.
First day I took 1.5 serves. My brain instantly assumed more is better. Felt really good, but a little odd. Next day was 1.75 serves and felt worse, I can't say the product gave me the visual side effects, but I had a bit of visual disturbance after my workout and remained for about 30mins. So I reduced to the recommended 1 serve there-on-after and it's actually a lot better, which is good; since 'recommended' usually means ime, times that by 2-3 and you'll have an effective dose.
It is definitely more than a pile of caffeine, (I've been using it almost every day and it still makes me feel euphoric.) lots of good ingredients in there, and the taste is good enough, in my experience, all PWOs taste fairly blah.
The downside of the product for me is the colouring... it immediately makes my teeth look blueish and stains my tongue, so I brush my teeth/tongue immediately as to not appear to have devoured a Smurf. Not really a huge downside, but just something I would change.
I stack this PWO with 10g bcaa, 5g citrulline malate and depending if I'm feeling up for it... a 200mg caffeine tablet. When all taken in conjunction with one another it is an amazing feeling indeed, can just work my body into the ground and it feels like a good damn time. lul.
Definitely a nice product.
Nice solid pwo that i find actually tastes rather nice. Good bang for buck too.
Hell BOOM...I droped in the tank and I went on a 5 hr solid training ride.never dropted in energy just nutz focus
Got to post again about this pre-workout, as I simply can't rave about it enough.
I'm not a typical Stim Dragon (is that right team?), so I don't tend to exceed the recommended dose, plus I'm npot as big as some of you fella's ;-)
So.... I tried the full scoop and it was great, didn't get wired and felt there was adequate Beta-Alanine in there to buffer the beating my arms were getting.
I ended up getting other flavour Icy Blue Freeze and it's great, much nicer than the apple, although I admit, it's down the hatch pretty quick.
So, sorry to let the STIM team down, I tried 1/2 a scoop for legs today. My.....God.... Perfect! I'll be saving the extra half, mabe to give others the chance to sample this awesome pre-workout. I can't comment about a crash, as I always do after a leg session, cabbage as with zimmer frame installed (almost)
Amazing power, drive and strength. Loved my sample. Full review: http://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/1545-ans-performance-ritual/
The ONLY reasons its not a 10 is because I dont know the price yet, but the sample pack DELIVERED! Workout for 2 and 1/2 and just kept on wanting to go and go and go!! Really food feel. Ill be putting up a full review later. If the price is the same as mr Hyde...then I would pick this!
Taste - 7/10 - Candy Green Apple Flavour
It smells like sour apple, the taste definitely matches the smell.
Consistency - 9.5/10
I used 7oz of cold water as recommended, mixed it with a fork to see how easily it would mix. Only took a few seconds of stirring to fully dissolve.
Formula - 9.5/10
The formula for this shows just how far we have come in this category, amazing ingredients at good dosages.
Overall score - 9/10
Throughout the workout that smooth energy and focus didn't once change or fade. Got a nice pump and had amazing endurance!
Full review here: http://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/1558-ans-performance-ritual-candy-green-apple/
Tried a sample of this today in Candy Green Apple and danggggg was it good. Possibly my new favourite pre-workout but only scoring it a 9/10 for now given I don't know how its gonna price up.
Full review at http://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/1568-ans-performance-ritual-preworkout/#entry28575
Candy Green Apple flavour - It hits you like those candy apple lollies before progressing to a more chemical taste (for that I give it a 9 not 10), but FOCUS! - I liked it. Never lasts long anyway before it's down the hatch!
Mixability - 10/10
Mixed with a shaker and all good, no gritty residue
With a lot of pre-workouts on the market all preaching the hype about being the best, this is actually pretty good. I got the Beta-Alanine tingles, and that in combination with the other ingredients made for a good powerful workout (only had a sample). I used it on a short and sweet chest '2' day and I got a wicked pump but didn't realise how sore I actually was until two days later.... tight! What, leg DOM's on a chest day? Placebo? Nah. You know when you don't take a Beta-Alanine based pre-workout, sore!
Woke up feeling sluggish, came into Xplosiv and they gave me a sample. Took it and it tasted awesome! Within about 10 minutes I started to feel so pumped, and when I got to the gym I felt like I was a Super Saiyan. Broke a couple of personal bests, with this, my rest time was almost non existent. Absolutely recommend to everyone who's willing to try take their workouts to the next level.
Was really tired today. Only had four hours sleep as baby decided she didn't really want to sleep that much last night. However this gave me a good pick me up considering and a pretty good pump. This energy seemed to keep going. Be interesting to take stacked with something else or when I am more fresh. I got a little bit of BA tingle but not a lot, however after taking other supps I tend to not feel BA so much at all anymore. Managed to smash back a pretty decent chest session which included a 10x10 45 degree bench in 10 mins, plus 20 mins of skipping and boxing afterwards. No crash and like I said pretty good energy all the way through. To me this seemed like a 'cleaner' type of energy if compared to Hyde which is a little more abrupt.
Would definitely use and recommend. According to ingredients comes as 45 serves which is great.
Hard to give a 10 from one small little sample...
A great product
Full Review - http://supplementreviews.co.nz/forum/topic/1541-ans-ritual-pre-workout-icy-blue-freeze-hardster/#entry27592
Thanks again Varis and Xplosiv for the sample. Would definitely recommend.
Right now I can only give this product 9 because I only got a sample sachet and well lets be honest they're never a full, normal person scoop hah! Needless to say it was still pretty amazing - took it for a big chest session, really felt the agmatine giving that pump and the stim in this seems to be quite spot on. I can see myself going heaped scoop and it'll be perfect, when I get my full tub I'll probably upgrade this to a 10! :)
Tempted to score a 10/10 but I don't really think that's possible.
TASTE- 7/10 (Green Apple flav)
Great, not quite as tasty as C4 but certainly better than many others.
Mixed perfectly, no complaints
Very impressive! Not only did it deliver incredible energy, focus (and mood), I can only describe it as "controlled intensity" if that makes sense? Have had a few others that felt "strong" but also left me waaaaay too wired to sleep, or just made me feel a little too edgy/ anxious and out of breath. Ritual seems to achieved a superb balance between intensity, power and control.
SEVERAL SERVES/ WORKOUTS LATER
Thought Id add this section as this is unique. Typically I need to bump up my serve size after 4-5 workouts as I adapt to the product but haven't come close to doing this yet!
Wow...finally means 45 serves in the jar is exactly that!
This literally will form part of my pre workout "Ritual" from now on. Top job ANS and now makes me keen to see what other performance treasures they have available.
What more can I say.. Not only does this pre-workout punch insane strength..
But it also ticks the box of giving you an insane feel good vibe after taking it.. I've tried a lot of pre-workouts and this takes the cake for a stronger one..
Not to mention other strong pre-workouts lose their effect after a few times but this I've been using for the past month and it's worked like a gem every single time without upping the dose (excluding one time I tried 1.5 scoops and it blew my head off)
