Kali Muscle’s Hyphy Mud: Is It A Legit Pre-Workout?

A great actor and bodybuilder named Kali Muscle has been gaining popularity online and on TV. I decided to review Hyphy Mud, a pre-workout made popular by Kali that prisoners use. The idea is to have a great pre-workout using only what is available in prison.

What does Hyphy Mud stand for?

Hyphy is a term that came from California which basically means “hyperactive.” Some call it crunk, geeked, etc.

Mud stands for “Makes U Dangerous.” If I have to spell it out anymore, you shouldn’t be drinking this.

What is in it?

There isn’t many ingredients in this which makes it cheap and easy to make, especially in prison.

  • 1 – 3 tablespoons instant coffee
  • A bit of dark soda of your choice

Put enough soda in to let it mix enough, or to help with flavoring.

Does it work?

Here’s the million dollar question; Does it work? The short answer is yes. Hyphy mud works because of the sugar and caffeine in it. Coffee has long been used as a pre-workout because it is a natural ingredient and gives you quite a bit of energy.

Hyphy mud doesn’t taste the best, and if you dislike coffee, you’re going to have to slam this like a shot of cheap tequila. It is effective and kicks in relatively fast, no need to wait 30-45 minutes before hitting the gym.

Some people experience a crash afterward, which may be from a high dose of caffeine and sugar, but the energy and thermogenic power this concoction has is great and can really give you a boost in the gym.

I would not recommend using this mixture for every day events; if you get the morning doody from coffee you could have some issues with this so buyer beware. Overall I would say for the minimal investment it is worth trying at least once just so you can say you have.

  1. Gettin’ hyphy tonight for hockey. I actually like the taste of this stuff and it’s cheap and works better than anything else that costs 10 X as much. I use a mason jar to mix mine up by turning it over and swishing it around and then bring it to workout location because you don’t want to drink it too early, plus making it in advance allows for it to settle a bit so you don’t have to drink foam. No matter how you slice it, caffeine plus sugar is going to equate to energy. My opinion is don’t try to reinvent hyphy MUD with tea, most tea has about 1/4 the amount of caffeine as coffee. If you don’t like this stuff then just drink coffee and coke separately – one after the other!

  2. Tried this for the first time today and its great, didn’t crash at all, just half a saker of coke and one teaspoon of strong coffee. Real good 2hour arm sesh followed.

  3. This stuff works. I just did 75 pull ups (normally 40), a 1.5 mile jog, 10 dive bomber push ups to relax the spine, and some jumps. I also decided to climb up a swing set just cause. It’s been about 2 hours, and I haven’t crashed yet. Also, I drink coffee like once a week, so it probably won’t affect people who drink more than me.

  4. Ive used hyphy mud before it became really popular. I love it. It works perfectly for me in the gym. Ive also used it before doing fasted cardio.

    • It’s about the same as regular pre-workout but with it being simply coffee and coke it doesn’t have such a bad crash like other pre-workouts.

      I’d say a good hour or so depending how much you are tolerant to caffeine.
