Instant Knockout vs. Shred JYM is the supplement equivalent of a one-on-one between two MASSIVE fat burners in the industry. We say massive because these two juggernauts shred fat unlike any other.
We’re looking at Muhammad Ali vs George Foreman all over again bro. Both are excellent fighters but they each work the ring differently.
Like Ali, Instant Knockout floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee. It’s carefully formulated with ingredients that can knock the lights out of fat and cover all bases with quickness and efficiency.
Shred JYM is a heavy hitter and ring tactician, capable of burning fat with big punch after big punch like Big George dished out in his prime.
We both know they’re good at what they do but which fat burner will burn hotter?

Round 1: Formulas
Instant Knockout is an all-around fat shredder.
Instant Knockout dishes out the big guns with Green Tea Extract, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Cayenne, and Caffeine which make up four of our Best 5 Fat Burners. Makes you wonder how strong it would be if it had all five of these hot ingredients!
It has Glucomannan as a great appetite suppressant and standardized Black Pepper Extract to maximize absorption of everything in this formula, making a potent ingredient have more strength!
Shred JYM grills your fat using the George Foreman Grill
Shred JYM contains a fiery combination of Caffeine and Synephrine as Advantra-Z and these two make up the mythical Caffeine-Synephrine stack anyone who knows their fat burners and performance enhancers nod their heads to. It also adds standardized Green Tea Extract as well as Cayenne as Capsimax to intensify the flames even more.
Acetyl-L-Carnitine a.k.a. ALCAR is included to burn fat before they even become fat by transporting fatty acids into cells and burn them for energy. That’s one pro-active ingredient right there. Last on the list is Tyrosine for increased focus and alertness.
- Tyrosine is an awesome nootropic for crushing it mentally, especially during stress (like training). The superior form, N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine, is found in the most powerful brain-boosting stacks.
In conclusion of the first round, both fat burners are looking hotter than the Sahara Desert in the middle of a summer drought at noon. They both look equally promising but we can only really pick one.
And this round goes to Instant Knockout for not only having four of the five fat burners we heavily recommend but by also having Black Pepper Extract which makes a smart formula much more formidable. It’s not that Shred JYM is lackluster… its opponent was simply better this round.
Round 1… Instant Knockout Wins.
Round 2: Dosages
Both fat burners were brave enough to declare just how much of each ingredient they have and by no means availed of hiding under a prop blend. Thanks to this, we can assess every ingredient inside the ring.
Both supplements carry the same amount of Green Tea Extract which is a good thing. It’s our #1 Fat Burner after all and wouldn’t want it with lesser dosages. They also both have Caffeine and Cayenne but Instant Knockout has 50% more of each and which translates to more energy and more fat burning power. And that’s where the similarities end.
Considering the sheer firepower of each fat burner, we’ll have to rate the dosages in context with the other ingredients.
Instant Knockout adds in a large dose of Glucomannan to keep the hunger pangs away, a decent dose of Green Coffee Bean Extract to keep carbs from turning into fat, and finishes it off with a clinically effective dose of standardized Black Pepper Extract to boost the potency of every last one of Instant Knockout’s ingredients.
Shred JYM has Synephrine and a whopping dose of ALCAR to complement its already scorching fat furnace plus a minimum dose of Tyrosine, which could be just enough to keep your head in check.
Despite the variety of ingredients between these two fat burners, we’ll have to give this one to Instant Knockout for providing serious doses for each of its ingredients and still increase the total burn output by including standardized Black Pepper Extract.
Two rounds down, three more to go. Will Shred JYM show up or get swept?
Round 2… Instant Knockout Wins.
Round 3: Ingredient Quality
This might just help turn things around for Shred JYM. As far as ingredient quality goes, Shred JYM definitely has the upper hand offering three premium ingredients in its formula all paired with effective doses.
- Green Tea Leaf Extract (98% polyphenols, 75% catechins, & 45% EGCG)
- Cayenne Pepper Fruit extract (Capsimax®)
- Synephrine (as Citrus aurantium unripe fruit extract, Advantra-Z®)
Meanwhile, looks like Instant Knockout got cut short by offering generic ingredients with only standardized Black Pepper Extract as the exception.
No questions here. Shred JYM finally nabs its first win.
Round 3… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 4: Price
|Instant Knockout||VS.||Shred JYM|
|1 Bottle (30-day supply)||$59||1 Bottle (60-servings)||$35.46|
|Price Per Capsule||$0.49||Price Per Capsule||$0.15|
|Price Per Serving||$1.96||Price Per Serving||$0.59|
Round 4… Shred JYM Wins.
Round 5: JUDGEMENT
If you look at our reviews on Instant Knockout and Shred JYM, you’ll notice there is barely any difference when you look at our star ratings. Both are high quality fat-burning stacks, but Instant Knockout has a slightly yet significant higher score over Shred JYM:
- We’re talking 4.8 (Instant Knockout) vs. 4.5 (Shred JYM) out of 5 stars.
Shred JYM is a great contender but Instant Knockout is #1 for a reason
Let us reiterate this: That 0.3 difference won’t mean much if you’re an able-bodied athlete or at least a decent fitness enthusiast. Both fat burners are exceptional in performance and value for money but the deal breaker would be the experience you want to have.
If you want to go after a potent Synephrine-Caffeine stack with a fiery twist, then Shred JYM is perfect. Big George is a slugger after all and what better way to reduce fat to smithereens than by going at it hard with each hit. It’s also better for a tight budget.
For us, we have to consider long-term potential and Instant Knockout gives us that. It attacks fat in more than one angle and each hit is critical in terms of fat burning potential. Instant Knockout’s long-term use is similar to Muhammad Ali’s majestic legacy in and out of the ring.
Sorry Big George, Ali ain’t called The Greatest for nothing.
In the Instant Knockout vs. Shred JYM fight, the winner by a SPLIT Decision is…
