Shred JYM vs. Vintage Burn is the battle between two fighters who haven’t seen each other since they graduated Broseph’s International Lifting Lodge for Youth (BILLY for short).
BILLY advocates traditional yet effective fat-burning techniques, enabling fighters to get ripped without sacrificing strength.
On one side we have Shred JYM who went to master fat-burning, but also improved upon it without straying from what they thought him at BILLY.
Then we have Vintage Burn. He still wears the best-kept mustache in the world… but he seems different. We’re told he’s been practicing some pretty weird fat-burning techniques since his return.
Which BILLY graduate will win today’s fight? The one who stayed true to the art form or the one who not only changed up the game but also managed to maintain an awesome mustache after all this time?
Let’s find out…

Round 1: Formulas
In fact, Vintage Burn is our #4-ranked Best 5 Fat-Burner Supplement, and the only reason Shred JYM didn’t make the list is ’cause it missed the deadline (look for it in our 2017 list, bro.)
So both are certified experts when it comes to fat burning, but they vary in how they approach the subject.
Shred JYM is all about keeping it short and simple.
Shred JYM has one ingenious fat-burning stack. We see the likes of standardized Green Tea Leaf Extract, Caffeine, and Cayenne in the form of a premium Capsimax. These three are all part of our Best5 Fat Burners so you know they’re hot.
Shred JYM is also in possession of a great fat burner in Synephrine as Advantra-Z, which grants you mega-metabolism and incinerates fat.
ALCAR is for better gym performance and a helping hand in recovery while providing an added burn. To top it all off is L-Tyrosine mainly for alertness and overall energy but they missed a wonderful opportunity to go with NALT, the superior form of Tyrosine. Still, it’s a nice-to-have ingredient.
Vintage Burn is “old-school,” but wants you to try something new.
Vintage Burn isn’t here to be mocked as he came to this fight prepared. He shows us his four big guns: Green Tea Leaf Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Caffeine, and Garcinia Fruit Extract. Vintage Burn was too shy to add Cayenne otherwise it would have ALL FIVE of our Best5 Fat Burners. Amazing? Vintage Burn is just getting started.
It has Raspberry Ketones and Forskohlii for making your metabolism go the extra mile, Chrysin helps block T-killing aromatase enzymes (which is really thoughtful if we might add), and Bacopa Leaf Extract, our #3 Best Nootropic capable of making you feel relaxed and happy despite the stress of strict diets. We’re not too sure about Olive Leaf Extract, though. There’s some really weak research but it’s not on humans so we’re sure this ain’t no fat burner.
In conclusion of the first round, both fat-burners know what’s up when it comes to giving your fat a good scorching. But we’re after which one has a hotter flame and Shred JYM came out a few degrees warmer and brighter this round.
Round 1… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Both fat burners didn’t hide anything from us and we applaud them for it. Because of that, we can carefully gauge just how much each supplement is packing so this will be a fair fight.
They have similar ingredients and each one looks decently dosed. Let’s start things off with the best fat burner of all: Green Tea Extract. Both of them have it and have fair doses for their formula design. Unfortunately, this costs them space for their other great ingredients and with fewer ingredients, Shred JYM is able to pack better and effective dosages than Vintage Burn.
Because each of its ingredients have more leg space, Shred JYM takes this round again as we all know great ingredients need to be paired with good dosing strategies if we want them functional.
Round 2… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
This is where it gets interesting.
Shred JYM packs in standardized Green Tea Extract, Capsimax, and Advantra-Z. Any fighter worth their salt knows just how important it is for herbs to be in premium form especially Green Tea Extract. Shred JYM derped it up with L-Tyrosine but that can be easily overlooked because it’s not even a fat-burner to begin with.
Unfortunately for Vintage Burn, there is nothing in its formula that speaks premium or standardized. They’re great fat burners, but all of them are generic.
No questions asked, Shred JYM conquers this round without a drop of sweat.
Round 3… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Shred JYM||VS.||Vintage Burn|
|1 Bottle (60-servings)||$35.46||1 Bottle (60-day supply)||$79.99|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.15||Price Per Capsule||$0.67|
|Price Per Serving||$0.59||Price Per Serving||$1.33|
Round 4… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
Well, will you look at that. It’s a victory over Vintage Burn. It doesn’t appear so if you look at our reviews on Shred JYM and Vintage Burn. You’ll really have to zoom in just to see the difference:
- We’re talking 4.5 (Shred JYM) vs. 4.2 (Vintage Burn) out of 5 stars.
That’s a pretty damn close fight, bro.
Given the miniscule difference, you’d think they’d have similar performance but that’s not the case as this battle found out.
In the end, the real winner is the one you’ll go for. Shred JYM is an all-out fat-burner to the teeth while Vintage Burn makes fat-burning fun again without sacrificing product efficacy.
Both are awesome in their own ways, so you’re good with either one. For us, we like to keep everything straight to the point while on budget and that’s why…
In the Shred JYM vs. Vintage Burn fight, the winner is…
