Legion Pulse Pre-workout is one of the best I have used, and I often recommend it to my clients. However, it's important to choose the right flavor, or you could end up with a pre-workout you can't even stomach.

Legion Pulse has a lot of different flavors to choose from, and I tested, researched, and ranked them all.

In this guide, I’ll share my top 10 Legion pre-workout flavors and help you find the best one to suit your tastes.

Legion Pulse has made a name for itself with their high-performance pre-workout that contains only natural ingredients. They don’t use artificial sweeteners or flavors, and they use high-quality ingredients.

The downside is that Legion Pulse pre-workout is more expensive than other brands.

The higher price point means you need to pick the right flavor the first time, or your money is wasted. Luckily, I've done all the work for you, and here are the 10 best Legion Pulse pre-workouts ranked:

1. Tropical Punch

Legion Pulse Tropical Punch is the standout flavor for me. It combines flavors of pineapple, mango, and hints of coconut to give you a delicious taste.

I could honestly drink it every day of the week - even if I wasn’t training!

Legion Tropical Punch is popular with gymgoers because it's light and refreshing. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a strong supplement, but the taste really disguises the caffeine.

This is a newer flavor from Legion Pulse, and it's a big step up from the classic Legion Fruit Punch. If you want a genuinely delicious pre, this is the one I recommend.

2. Strawberry Kiwi

This Legion pre-workout combines sweet strawberry notes with the tart flavors of kiwi. This gives you a well-balanced pre, and it's one of the most easy-to-drink supplements I've tasted.

The Legion Strawberry Kiwi is the perfect all-rounder. It doesn’t have the intense sourness of the Sour Candy or the sweetness of the Grape blend.

Instead, it's really well-balanced and perfect for anyone without strong preferences.

The Legion Strawberry Kiwi may not be as refreshing as the Tropical Punch, but it’s a very strong second.

3. Sour Candy

Have you ever had Sour Patch Kids? That's exactly what this pre-workout tastes like. It's sweet but with sour notes that put your taste buds on edge.

The Sour Candy pre-workout is very different from the Tropical Punch or Strawberry Kiwi. It's not designed for relaxed drinking; it's designed to jolt you awake, and I can see why it's popular with younger gymgoers.

I love the punch it gives me even before the caffeine kicks in, and if you like sour flavors and a big wake-up call, this is the one for you. Pucker up!

4. Blueberry Lemonade

Enjoy tart flavors but not quite ready for Sour Candy? You'll love the Blueberry Lemonade Pre-Workout. It combines sweet notes of blueberries with sharp citrus notes to give you a fresh-tasting mixture.

This flavor is popular because of its light and refreshing taste. It's not overpowering and works well in hot or cold weather. The only downside is that it has an artificial taste that isn't quite like blueberries or lemonade.

However, it's still easy to drink with a good balance of flavors. If you want something that's not too sweet or sour, this is the right pre-workout for you.

5. Cherry Limeade

Legion Pulse Cherry Limeade combines cherry and lime to give a sweet and fruity flavor. There’s a hint of lime in the aftertaste, but the overwhelming flavor is cherry, with vibrant sweet notes and a touch of tartness.

This isn't a flavor most other brands offer, and it's the only cherry pre-workout I've ever had, which is surprising because it works so well!

It’s slightly similar to the Legion Strawberry Kiwi flavor but with a little less sweetness and a bit more acidity.

If you love fruity flavors, cherries, and slightly sour notes - I recommend this pre-workout.

6. Green Apple

This pre-workout may not actually be green, but it has sweet green apple flavors. It’s one of the sweetest Legion Pulse flavors and tastes more like apple candies you’d have as a kid.

This pre-workout doesn’t taste completely natural, but it’s less artificial than other apple-flavored supplements I’ve tasted. There’s a hint of tartness in the aftertaste (though not much) and a little bit of acidity.

If you like sweet apple flavors, you'll love this pre-workout. It's one of Legion Pulse's original flavors, and you can also buy a stim-free version.

7. Grape

If green apple isn't your thing, but you like sweet pre-workout, grape is a great alternative. This pre-workout has all the same sweetness but tastes just like the sweet grape juice you buy from the store.

Legion Grape pre-workout has a more distinctive taste than other flavors, and it's much more overpowering than the Tropical Punch or Strawberry Kiwi blends.

However, you won't be able to taste anything but sweet grape, and it's remarkably easy to drink.

This is one of the highest-rated flavors by Legion Pulse consumers and is perfect for anyone with a sweet tooth.

8. Rainbow Sherbert

If you had rainbow sherbert as a child, you know exactly how this pre-workout tastes. It’s sugary sweet, with a tangy aftertaste that rounds it out. It’s popular with younger gymgoers and those who like sweeter flavors.

Legion Pulse Rainbow Sherbert is sweet, but not as sweet as the Grape or Green Apple Flavors, and it's definitely not overpowering.

The sherbert flavor added to my energy boost and helped to wake me up ahead of my workout.

This pre-workout lives up to its name and tastes exactly like you would expect. If you like fruity sherbert, you’ll love it.

9. Mojito

Who doesn’t love a crisp, refreshing mojito? Well, now you can have it as a pre-workout.

Legion Pulse has created this pre-workout with sweet and citrus notes and a bold mint finish. It’s lovely, but don’t underestimate the strong mint flavor.

The Mojito pre-workout is unique, and I’ve not seen other brands offer anything quite like it.

It’s a popular option with consumers who want a more elegant flavor, and it’s far less sweet than the Grape or Green Apple flavors.

If you have a more sophisticated pallet and want something minty and complex, you’ll enjoy this flavor.

10. Fruit Punch

Legion Pulse Fruit Punch combines pineapple, strawberry, and coconut to give you a fruity energy boost. It tastes a bit like Kool-Aid, with a tangy and sweet aftertaste that lingers on your tongue.

The Fruit Punch doesn't have quite the same kick as the Tropical Punch (number one on my list), but it's not tart or overpowering.

It tastes more artificial, and while it's harder to identify individual flavors, there's no denying how fruity it is.

This smooth, sweet pre-workout is delicious and easy to drink. It's only number 10 because other Legion Pulse flavors are so good, and it would give a lot of brands a run for their money!

How I Have Chosen Top Picks

Everyone has slightly different tastes, so the ‘best’ pre-workout flavors will always be subjective.[1] Some people prefer sweeter flavors, while others prefer sourness. It all comes down to personal preference.

However, I wanted to create a list of pre-workouts that most people would like the most. I did that by:

1. Researching the flavors

I started by looking at reviews on marketplaces (like Amazon) and forums (like Reddit) to see what people liked the most. I also spoke to other PTs and people who take pre-workout to get their opinions.

This gave me a good idea of how each Legion Pulse pre-workout tasted and what people liked the most. This information helped me narrow down 30+ flavors to just over 20.

2. Tasting

I then started tasting each of the flavors myself to see how they compared. During the tasting, I was looking for a few key factors to help me rank them:

  • Balance of flavors (sweet vs sour)
  • How easy to drink they were
  • Unique factors

This research and tasting let me rank Pulse Legion pre-workout flavors accurately. Hopefully, this gives you the full picture and will help you find the best flavor to suit your tastes.
