Day 3 of using this:
First thoughts was that this smelled and tasted like Bubble Gum. It was also flaky, even after shaking well. But this was my first time trying it. I played with dosage the next day and decided I used too much on Day 1. With less, I noticed better taste and less flakes after shaking.
I am a big fan of the inclusion of COP. Makes a huge difference between sets (less rest in between).
I have been drinking this intra and post workout. 1.5 scoops in ice cold 16oz water.
I only take this on workout days to get more out of a tub.
The more I get into the tub, I'll be able to post better observations. But so far, I really do enjoy this product.

Solubility is much improved, but there is still some flaking... Just mix it, and let it sit in the fridge for about 10 minutes and all is right with the world.
If you want to crack it open now, mix 2 scoops with about 8oz. water and a few ice cubes and blend into a slushy-like consistency. Bliss.

Decided to take some prior to my cardio/active recovery today. I noticed the leucine bits so I tossed some in a shaker with ice and left in the fridge for 10-15 minutes prior to drinking.
Interesting flavor. Very refreshing and quite different from anything I have tried before. Love that it is unique because the same old flavors can tend to get annoying. Will play around with water levels as well to see how I like it best.
Thanks for all the help and I will probably do 2 servings pre-workout and 1 serving pre-cardio on the off days that I do some.

As Smitty said work your way up. I had to adjust to COP at first. Mind you creative mono rips my stomach apart.. So do most GDAs. I can eat almost anything but some supps...
Work outs are getting intense. I may bring my bottle with me, sip serving 1 on the way and at the start, then have the second at the gym when that's gone... I miss the flavor when it's finished

I tend to have an iron stomach with these things. Even most high levels of forskolin don't effect me and I have had no issues with SSv2 so far, but I will keep that in mind.

I'll probably post a full review in its own thread after some more time with using Protocol but figured this is a good place to throw random thoughts after some quick use.
Decided to take 1 serving Protocol pre-workout mixed with 1 serving Compete (tangerine) in 14 oz water today. Tossed em in a shaker, then stored in a fridge for 30 minutes. Came out mixed nearly perfect (only a little bit of Leucine floating around) and tasted amazing! Will try 1.5 servings tomorrow and then 2 servings next week alone if all goes well.
Probably too early for results, but prowler sprints did seem a tad easier today than last workout.

Carnitas might not be the best bribe. He lives in LA where you can get Carnitas everywhere, including Starbucks.Originally Posted by Celorza

I'll take some of those, but the Costco bucket would be at least a 720 ct. since everything there is about a year's worth.Originally Posted by Smitty77

Have enjoyed SS so far. Nothing mind blowing, but I haven't used anything like this (other than R-ALA/Na-RALA) in awhile and enjoy the effects. Granted I am also taking ArA which always helps with CHO intake IME but still helpful so far.
BTW thought this was the Protocol thread???
On a Protocol related note I took 1.5 servings today. No GI discomfort and I love the taste when real cold with some ice crushed up with it.
