Black Magic turns its reputable pre-workout into a beverage to have on the go

Black Magic Bzrk Rtd

BZRK is one of Black Magic’s most known supplements, and it’s been there since the beginning of the premium sports nutrition brand, offering an intense level of stimulation paired with effective pump and performance ingredients. Black Magic has decided it is time for fans to be able to take the long-running pre-workout with them on the go. Now available from the brand, as well as its many retail partners, is the BZRK RTD; no more scooping and mixing; simply rip off the cap, and you’re good to go.

Black magic’s BZRK RTD is quite a different combination of ingredients from the original powder. Basically don’t expect the exact same level of intense energy and focus, but the brand has done a good job maintaining all of the non-sensory-supporting components. The supplement will still certainly pack a punch in those stimulating areas; however, it doesn’t have regular l-tyrosine, a straight 350mg of caffeine anhydrous, kola nut, adhatoda vasica, or the potent isopropylnorsynephrine.

Citrulline Malate 2:17,000mg
Agmatine Sulfate1,000mg
Betaine Anhydrous1,000mg
Caffeine Anhydrous250mg
Di-Caffeine Malate100mg
Huperzine A10mg

As you can see, the pump and performance drivers from the regular bulk powder version of BZRK are still there, with 7g of citrulline malate at a 2:1 ratio, 3.2g of beta-alanine, 2.5g of glycerol, and a gram of betaine alongside a gram of agmatine, which is not in the original. Further down the list you get the BZRK RTD’s energy and focus ingredients, and they are n-acetyl-l-tyrosine at 100mg, premium and proven CognatiQ at an effective 100mg, a caffeine blend of anhydrous and di-caffeine malate, newly added huperzine, and to get more out of the formula, absorption-enhancing AstraGin.

The market of pre-workout RTDs is not as competitive as bulk powder supplements where Black Magic and BZRK have competed for so long. The BZRK RTD definitely puts up a fight in that space, offering as much pump and performance as you get in its regular counterpart. The energy and focus portion has a different set of ingredients behind it but is still very likely a strong and robust part of the experience.

You can indeed go ahead and purchase the all-new BZRK RTD directly from Black Magic’s online store at and to make it easier to try the product before investing in an entire case, you can buy individual bottles. The single BZRK RTDs are not cost-effective at $6.99 a piece versus the $3.99 each in the case of 12, although again, it’s a great way to get out and take the supplement for a spin and it comes in two flavors, both from the bulk BZRK powder in Cosmic Burst and Crystal Blue.
