The line follows the successful introduction of the Warrior Workout, where this year thousands of festival goers gather on the Saturday morning of Defqon.1 to do a collective workout. In recent years, the concept has proven to be a perfect match with the music and visitors of the multi-day festival, who are often involved in sports, nutrition, and a healthy lifestyle. The Warrior Workout supplement line was developed in collaboration with XXL Nutrition, the fastest growing sports nutrition brand in Europe, and contains a pre-workout and post-workout supplement. From May 12, all products will be available at or

The Warrior Workout supplement line contains products for both before and after intensive exercise. The Primal Energy Pre-Workout is created to consume before a workout and provides the necessary energy to achieve optimal results during intense activities. The Primal Energy Pre-Workout is available in the flavors Red Fruit and Orange Fruit, where this last one is also available without caffeine. To help the body recover, the Warrior Workout supplement line also includes the Recharge Post-Workout in the flavor Tropical Fruit. Whether it’s a visit to the gym or to dance your socks off at a festival, the Warrior Workout supplements give you the desired boost to get the best out of yourself and to recover optimally from your intensive efforts.

Jonas Schmidt, Creative Director of Q-dance: “Four days of Defqon.1 is a serious matter, you could almost call it top sport! Therefore, we support our visitors with our Warrior Workout and this new supplement line of the same name. We want our visitors to be in their best shape. In the run-up to the festival, we’ll regularly come up with new 20-minute full body work-out videos. There will be a physical gym on the festival site and we will tackle the Warrior Workout moment on Saturday morning during the festival with a massive show. There are more than enough reasons to partner with XXL Nutrition and to strive together for the highest quality, both in sport and at the festival!

René van der Zel, CEO and founder of XXL Nutrition: “Whether we could help Q-dance develop and supply top quality supplements for the Warrior Workout concept? Definitely, we can do that like no other! An amazing partnership between two organizations that are both bursting with energy and go for innovation and quality. The development was a fun process with a lot of input and wishes from the Q-dance team. We put a lot of time and effort in this, but we are proud of the end result.
