Quick Take: In typical Force Factor fashion, both Test X180 Genesis VS. Test X180 Tempest are designed using prop blends and TestoFen®. However, like the other testosterone boosters from Force Factor, both of these also have their specific strengths and weaknesses as well as similarities and differences. Let’s find out what these are, weigh them, and see which supplement comes out on top.
Test X180 Genesis Features
- Designed to target “the trinity of masculinity” which, according to Force Factor, is strength, cognitive primacy, and sexual aptitude
- Outside its prop blends are heavy dosages of KSM-66®, Testofen®, and BioPerine®. The former 2 look like the main ingredients of Test X180 Genesis.
- Its Foundational Virility Triplex (main prop blend) is further subdivided into 3 other prop blends
- Ingredients inside the blends are supposedly great complements to the main ingredients
- The herbs are mostly given in potent qualities but the total dosage of Test X180 Genesis dilutes their potential

- The main prop blend (Athletic Domination Matrix) has 6 natural ingredients sharing a solid total dosage of 2106 mg
- Main prop blend is further subdivided into 3 prop blends with 2 ingredients each. Each prop blend also serves a specific purpose.

Test X180 Genesis VS. Test X180 Tempest: My Analysis
These Force Factor products have similar formula designs. For one, both Test X180 Genesis VS. Test X180 Tempest have a handful of ingredients outside their prop blends. They also have 1 main blend that’s subdivided into 3 other mini-blends. Somewhere along these lines, these two also enlist the help of TestoFen which is a premium brand of Fenugreek that boosts “free” testosterone, libido, and muscle strength without any side effects.
Testofen® isn’t just limited to Test X180 Genesis and Test X180 Tempest. Other Force Factor testosterone boosters also use it, including:
That said, Test X180 Genesis and Test X180 Tempest are designed for different purposes despite similar structures.
Genesis targets “the trinity of masculinity”
According to Force Factor, this so-called trinity is strength, cognitive primacy, and sexual aptitude. Looking at its top ingredients – Testofen (Fenugreek) and KSM-66 (Ashwagandha) – Test X180 Genesis looks quite capable of doing so. These ingredients are testosterone boosters that can also work on muscle growth, sex, and brain health. At 600 mg each, they also have no problems when it comes to dosage.
Furthermore, the 3 prop blends inside Test X180 Genesis add more boost to these 3 facets of male health. Personally, I find this a solid strategy. At 1460 mg, the total dosage looks quite decent, too. However, considering that the blends have 9 ingredients between them, I think the overall dosage could use a bit more juice.
Tempest is more of a pre-workout
As a natural testosterone booster, Test X180 Tempest honestly looks weak. Outside its prop blends, there’s only Vitamin B6 to support healthy testosterone. Within them, Testofen (and to an extent, Rhodiola) would’ve been reliable testosterone boosters but since they’re inside prop blends, there’s no way of knowing for sure if they’re getting adequate dosages. To be fair, the total dosage does look impressive.
However, Test X180 Tempest looks better if you consider it as a bodybuilding PWO product. For one, ALL the B vitamins outside the prop blend help convert energy from the food we eat. The prop blends also increase ATP for even more boosts in energy. Furthermore, they also protect our muscles from stress and fatigue while also boosting circulation.
Test X180 Genesis VS. Test X180 Tempest Summary
- Research-backed KSM-66 and Testofen boosts testosterone, libido, muscle strength, and brain health
- The 3 prop blends also support “the trinity of masculinity”
- Prop blends share a decent total dosage
- Extremely expensive at $229.99 per bottle of 120 capsules (NOTE: Prices may be cheaper on Amazon and eBay)
- The B Vitamins aid in energy production with Vitamin B6 specifically supporting healthy testosterone levels
- Testofen and Rhodiola are the only other testosterone boosters. Their individual dosages are unknown.
- Better as a PWO rather than a testosterone booster
- Significantly cheaper (but still expensive) at $99.99 per bottle of 120 capsules
Conclusion: Which is Better?
To me, the conclusion of this battle is clear. Although I still wouldn’t quite consider Test X180 Genesis among the best testosterone supplements in the early 2018 market, I think it’s heaps stronger than Test X180 Tempest when it comes to boosting testosterone. I mean, there’s just no denying the scientific evidence of KSM-66 and Testofen. However, to be frank, I’ve written reviews of better supplements that don’t cost half as much.
That said, don’t take Test X180 Tempest lightly. It might be a significantly weaker testosterone booster but its preworkout-esque effects are things that Test X180 Genesis doesn’t have. For men looking to improve their performance at the gym, this looks like the better buy.
