Instant Knockout vs. Grenade is like pitting Rocky vs Rambo.
Rocky is a boxer and boxers are fighters. Fighters hit hard and fast to knock opponents down as efficiently as possible. Rambo is a soldier, an angry and vengeful soldier and his anger allows him to overwhelm the enemy with lots of firepower.
Instant Knockout reminds us of Rocky: Ingredients look bare but they’re not scarce. Each punch sends fat into the corner, forcing the coach to throw in the towel. Plus, like Rocky, IKO is a CHAMPION: It’s our #1-ranked fat-burner stack, bro.
Grenade is a lot like Rambo: Seasoned and has more than enough firepower to blow fat to smithereens.
One angry fighter vs one angry soldier. Both are champions at what they do and both have cool looking bottles but which supplement should Sylvester Stallone take for his future action films? Let’s find out…

Round 1: Formulas
Instant Knockout targets fighters of all kinds.
With a fist-shaped bottle, you’d be crazy to think if Instant Knockout wasn’t made for fighters. They claim to provide the kind of fat burning that won’t leave a fighter starved and weak before competition and judging by the ingredients, you know they’re on to something.
Their vitamins and minerals aren’t exactly what you would call spectacular but having Chromium Picolinate means they care about the tiny details of a proper fat burner as it helps control appetite, maintain blood sugar balance, and enhance metabolism.
After what seems like a lackluster start, Instant Knockout blows us all away with heavy hitters Green Tea Extract, Cayenne, and Glucomannan! GTE and Cayenne belong to the Best 5 Fat Burners list while Glucomannan’s addition serves to complement the other fat-burners by being what we call a “fat-loss fiber.” It promotes satiation and also works as a blood sugar stabilizer and enables you to burn crazy amounts of fat without feeling starved.
As with every clean hit, a fighter has to follow it up with a series of quick blows and Instant Knockout does so by adding two of our other best fat burners, Green Coffee Bean Extract and Caffeine, and top it all off with good ‘ol Black Pepper Extract for maximum absorption.
It’s hard to imagine how anyone stands up after a beating like that.
Grenade Thermo Detonator wants to leave an explosive impression on fat.
Talk about explosive vengeance. Grenade Thermo Detonator is filled with ingredients meant to exact revenge on fat and it does so by means of overwhelming the enemy with sheer fire power.
It starts strong with a potent combination of Green Tea Extract, Caffeine, and Bitter Orange. Green Tea and Caffeine both belong to our Best5 Fat burners while adding Bitter Orange (Synephrine) provides synergy which makes their fat burning capacity even greater.
Grenade Thermo Detonator follows that stack with plenty of firepower:
Grapefruit for improved absorption, Our #5 fat burner Cayenne together with Evodiamine to enhance cayenne’s effects, Yohimbe and Raspberry Ketones to optimize metabolism and support fat burning efforts, Phenylalanine for mood and as an appetite suppressant, Cocoa Bean Extract for blood flow and blood pressure, PEA to boost serotonin and dopamine and provide a “feel good” sensation, Forskolin for long term potentiation, Yerba Mate for energy as well as appetite control, and DMAE for alertness.
In conclusion of the first round, Grenade Thermo Detonator made use of a lot of potent fat burners as well as nootropics in their mix, guaranteed to burn the fat out of your body while Instant Knockout just dishes damage the old fashioned way: hit fast, hit hard, and do it all over again.
If we are to pick a winner, it would be Instant Knockout for its simple and focused approach on shredding fat without making you feel hungry. Grenade Thermo Detonator’s explosive approach is awesome and all but its buck shot formulation means not every bullet hits the target.
Round 1… Instant Knockout Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Instant Knockout’s dosages are available for everyone to see and what a sight to behold. They hit the sweet spot for most of their ingredients with the exception of Green Coffee Extract but they more than make up for it with a heavy 300 mg Caffeine punch that goes “Caf-Pow!”
We don’t have much to say with Grenade since they used a Prop blend to hide their dosages. Besides, cramming 14 ingredients into a 775 mg capsule increases the risk of being underdosed and we all know the importance of leg space when it comes to potency.
Round 2… Instant Knockout Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
While Instant Knockout had the right ingredients, they shied away from making use of branded ingredients. What they did thought about was to use a form of black pepper extract to make sure even the plain ingredients in their formula get maximum absorption.
Grenade Thermo Detonator also had the same idea of just using one standardized ingredient but they did it with Green Tea Extract and we see that as a great move. Dosages, aside, a standardized herb can make a lot of difference in potency and performance and Grenade Thermo Detonator played it smart by standardizing their most weighted ingredient that just happens to be the best fat burner to date.
Round 3… Grenade Thermo Detonator Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Instant Knockout||VS.||Grenade Thermo Detonator|
|1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$59||1 Bottle (100-day supply)||$59.95|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.49||Price Per Capsule||$0.60|
|Price Per Serving||$1.96||Price Per Serving||$0.60|
Round 4… Grenade Thermo Detonator Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
It’s a 2-2 game so far and someone has to give and judging from our previous reviews of these two great supplements, it’s pretty obvious:
- We’re talking 4.8 (Instant Knockout) vs. 3.7 (Grenade Thermo Detonator) out of 5 stars.
It’s not exactly the closest of fights, isn’t it?
While Grenade Thermo Detonator did win the fight when it comes to ingredient quality and pricing, the dosage as well as the potency of each ingredient in Instant Knockout simply outweighed its drawbacks. We’re talking about saving money at the cost of performance bro and we always choose the right kind of performance for the right price.
Too bad Rambo lost. Now he has to suck one up and let Rocky play “Eye of the Tiger” each time they’re in the gym together.
In the Instant Knockout vs. Grenade Thermo Detonator fight, the winner by a SPLIT Decision is…
