awhile back I bought a can of Xtend and it came with a small can of NP BA. Can someone tell me an easy way to measure this? Does anyone know if the scoop in Xtend will work and what its equivilant to for the BA?
Thanks in advance
I'm away from my supp stash until Sat night, but the density of the BA is listed on the side of the tub. It says 1/4tsp = 800mg I believe. so 1 tbsp=9.6g approx. Figure out how many serving of Xtend you have, and much BA you want/serving, and mix it in or add separately (easier) to your shake. I usually use just over 1/2tsp (~2g) pre and intra-WO.
Yeah, I usually pack a 1/4tsp. measuring spoon flat and toss it in my pre-workout drink. I do 2 of these, which I have measured (on a scale) at about 2.5g
how does BA do in water? can i mix some BA with my water while i lift?
how does it taste though? does it even have a flavor? I want to buy this in bulk too.
I've gone through probably 1 kilo+ of it, and never noticed a taste. Not even salty like GABA; it's just granular. It's the perfect bulk powder because it even dissolves without a hitch. Just picked up my 3rd 500g tub of it; cheap and seems to help a bit (Or atleast the placebo effect )
what bout the bcaa bulk powder? you know how that taste?
Straight powder is somewhat tart, even slightly alkali-like. But still very faint....
With that said, the taste can be slightly masked with some Crystal Light or any other flavor packet. But with an effective amount in a single bottle of water, you just can't get around it. And the film and funky breath are still there regardless. No big deal though IMO...
