I received my bottle of Lava and the Black Animal T yesterday! Took my first serving yesterday and will give a quick initial review in a bit. Thanks again for your generosity and support of the Bodybuilding contest here on AM.
Okay, so my initial review... I will add further comments as I make my way through the bottle
Lava is a Protein/Creatine powder that has a bunch of other goodies in it...Tried to upload the ingredient profile but I keep getting errors.
http://www.universalnutrition.com/ has it there.
Lava Initial Review
Smell: Smells like old school protein... Not all that pleasant but the smell once mixed was completely gone.
Mixability: Mixed 1.5 scoops in 12 oz of Skim milk in a blender and it mixed in about 3 seconds without too much foam
Taste: Pretty good actually. It tastes almost like a creamsicle with no aftertaste.
Cost: Kind of pricey at 15 servings at about 40 bucks but to be honest it's been almost two years since i've paid for/used protein and i know the cost has gone way up since I was buying it. Plus it adds creatine to the mixture so I'd have to look up equivilent doses of both to give a fair review on cost.
I'll be using this as a post workout/meal replacement drink and I have started off only using 1.5 of the 2.5 serving to test my ability to avoid stomach issues with protein mixes. So far, so good. I'll report back on occasion as I use Lava and give a final review once the container is finished.
I would of made it a bit more pretty but the color options and such don't seem to be working for me at the moment.
Old school products. Glad to see this J. How's the T fit?
Fits excellent... As all of us gym rats know, it's about the fit in the arms and chest and it fits nicely in both! I wish the Animal logo in the front was as big as the one in my red shirt but several people noticed it and made animal comments not knowing the company... So had to explain a few details in the process I'm going to shoot for the Yellow 77 next.
No stomach issues at all so far! I'm enjoying this one very much. Adding a half banana makes for a great treat as well.
Well, I had been taking Metamucil orange flavor but ran out of orange juice to mix it in and decided to try it in the protein mix... Adds to the taste lol.
Still not having any stomach issues or discomforts.
