    (Sponsored ) Smeton put's Universal's Intra-aid to the test


    Ht 6ft2
    Wt 234
    Training Dc training. I can only do my right side of my upper body.
    Diet: around 3,300-3000 k. 300 -400P, 200 C, 150 F. Contest Preparation diet. On traing days the calories are higher on non training days I dont do much physcial activity so might be lower. Cardio on off days at least 15 minutes, sometimes more if I feel like an endurance high
    Supplements; Multi, Vit c, green tea, whey protein.

    First impression . I already know its going to work with the ingredients. All the others work , like Purple Wrath, Scivation etc. The only other flavored bcaa I done was Purple wrath. and I use to use bcaa powder. look how much better the bodybuilding industry has gotten, taste! and it is nice.

    Taste: Taste is amazing. Blue Raz is great. Man things have gotten so good in taste on bcaaa's in the last few years.I only have Purple Wrath to compare too. the ingredients are a bit different so compare taste.
    I drank a two servings already . one this morning with breakfast and I used probably 16 oz's.. and ice cubes.

    During workout I took it with more water and didn't taste as good. Maybe no ice-cubes, too much water, or the water from their water fountain may be different from mine at home because it's in a different part of town. Purple wrath has a little different taste and seems to flush me more. This did turn my skin red(from the beta alanine) and I don't like the beta alanine feeling. this is the first time I took Ba in months so I have some stored away I only workout three days per week so i'll start supplementing with ba (lower doses 4 grams)on other days I don't train.Regardless, the taste is incredible and getting to the point supplements are almost a treat to drink. haha In fact since the raw tasting bcaa days, they are a treat!


    . Everyone should have basic knowledge at least of what they're putting into their body.With these ingredients I feel very satifyed because I know this product has optimized recovery from those grueling workouts.

    *note* I know these are not recommended exercises deadlifts , barbell rows, basic exercises. I can only do one arm so im going to have fun. Everything is one arm.

    Today was my first day working my right side...(I haven't done upper body in six months)
    45 degree incline DB press 60 lbs-10--5-2
    chest stretch 20 lbs 1:00
    Life fitness shoulder press machine 10 lbs 12-6-6
    shoulder stretch 1:00
    one arm underhand cable push down 15 lbs 12-6-7
    20 lbs triceps stretch 1:00
    life fitness chin assist widest handle 175 lbs-8-6-6
    stretch 175 lbs (assisted) 1:00

    here is the write-up

    What It Is:
    Intra-Aid. Targeted Intra-Workout Supplementation.
    Proper workout nutrition (intra-workout) is an area that is being supported by a legit, growing body of science. Intra-workout nutrition represents the next big nutritional frontier for bodybuilders and weightlifters. Even so, many lifers often ignore this period. Why is targeted intra-workout supplementation so important? Here's a short list: proper re hydration, muscle and liver glycogen re-synthesis, improved immune function, decreased muscle catabolism, increased muscle protein synthesis, increased muscle anabolism, faster recovery and training at a higher intensity. It's amazing how so many benefits can get overlooked. Intra-Aid? brings intra-workout nutrition into the 21st century. It's a combination of key complexes that work in synergy to maximize the aforementioned benefits of workout supplementation. Intra-Aid consists of 5 potent components: fast-acting hydrolyzed protein, a highly specialized carbohydrate blend, critical electrolytes, an essential amino acid blend, and key ergogenic agents. Intra-Aid combines all of the scientific benefits of proper intra-workout supplementation, leaving out the guesswork. The gym water fountain and popular high fructose "sports" drinks may be good for the regular athlete, but for the serious weight lifter, they just can't compare. Think of Intra-Aid as first-aid for your workout.

    Supplement Facts:
    Serving Size 1 scoop (~32g)
    Servings Per Container 25
    Amount Per Serving %DV
    Calories 72
    Calories from Fat 0
    Total Fat <1g 0%
    Saturated Fat 0g 0%
    Total Carbohydrates 10g 3% (Intra-Aid Carb Blend--maltodextrin, d-glucose, waxy maize)
    Sugars 5g
    Protein 8g 16% (from hydrolyzed whey protein)
    Calcium 50mg 5% (Electrolytes)
    Magnesium 50mg 13%
    Sodium 100mg 4%
    Potassium 100mg 3%

    Intra-Aid Proprietary Performance Blend 10,000mg (EAAs and Ergogenics)
    Beta-alanine
    Taurine
    Leucine
    Isoleucine
    Valine
    Arginine
    Histidine
    Lysine
    Methionine
    Phenylalanine

    Intra-Aid consists of 5 potent components: fast-acting hydrolyzed protein, a highly specialized carbohydrate blend, critical electrolytes, an essential amino acid blend, and key ergogenic agents, all of which are highlighted above.

    Damn Smeton, you're big. Will be followin' your log, as I continue to be impressed with Universal/Animal. Beat-alanine can definitely be unpleasant to virgins and those that haven't used in a while, but it can be a fantastic endurance booster.
    Just curiouis, is your one arm bigger than the other?

    Gotta admit, I'm no fan of the BA "tingles". I've posted it here, along with my other observations about Intra-Aid: Intra-Aid: My First Experience

    Solid. Intra-Aid is much more than a BCAA supp. For starters, it has EAAs (think EAA Stack or Animal Nitro). To that, there's WPH, which is absorbed even faster than free form EAAs. That makes up the PRO/AA combo. To that, there's CHO (carbs), electrolytes, and the other goodies. So Intra-Aid is complete.

    Great taste, eh? For me, my sweet spot is around 25-30 oz of water per scoop (or around 55 oz for two scoops, which is what I've been running). I've mixed Intra-Aid with BCAA Stack yesterday, and am gonna mix it with EAA Stack today, as an experiment. Then on to my "slurpee" concept and my Intra-Aid "on the rocks" idea.

    There about the same, not even a 1/2 inch difference. even before when I trained both arms the right is shaped different. about the same, though. I hope to be training both by November.

    I'll have to experiment and try. about 6 ice cubes and 20 oz water is good..

    Slurpee would be to mix the equivalent amount of water, but using only ice cubes and blending in a powerful blender.

    On the rocks is like what you did above--Intra-Aid + water + ice cubes.

    Right now, I'm also experimenting with adding other supps (BCAA Stack yesterday, EAA Stack today)..

    Man this stuff is amazing. I mixed it with 25 oz of cold water , like Universal recommends, and it tasted the best I ever tasted it, before my grueling set of hammies. I rate this taste better than Purple Wrath, objectively, I still like CL. You guys got to try this intra-workout.I do have a question...how would mixing this with 30 grams carbohydrate with blue gatorade be? I honestly think that only about 10-20 grams are needed intra-workout and too many carbohydrates could distract optimal blood flow; although, I could be wrong?


    Seated alternate dumbbell curl 20 lbs- 13x's(Im only do one ss on upper body untill i can use both hands)

    Reverse wrist curl 10 lbs-20x's

    Incline Nautilus calve press (Dc pre-contest calves) 3 plates and 25-5 x's (did these and all leg exercises in my chucks and this made them more difficult than NB, next time will have to lower weight)

    Incline Nautilus Sumo Press 1 plate and 25- 20 x's


    Incline Nautilus Zane press 2 plates and 25=15
    2 plates - 20 x's
    quad stretch 1:00
    ham stretch 1:00

    Man did I lighten up but damn does it feel awesome and tiring to be doing these high reps

    I prefer to keep the carbs on the lower side, and 20g is the max for me lately (so I've been doing 2 scoops with about 55 oz of water). I'm not a fan of sports drinks and fructose myself.

    Gotta keep it healthy too U. I'm another one that isn't crazy about Gatorade, Powerade, etc during workouts. I like a good intra wo supplement drink but then I switch over to water, and lots of it! I'd rather run to the bathroom 2 or 3 times during my workout than feel like crap.

    I think tonight I am going back to trying my Intra-Aid with water just by itself the way it was formulated to be used. I'll go with my 1 scoop to 25 oz ratio. We'll see how it does me for chest...

    My recovery abilities have been dragging and I'm taking the next couple weeks and downsizing volume, Ill up it back again when I can train normally. For those who don't know I can only training my right side and legs.

    So I'm basically doing Dc training with strait sets (ss) and no stretching , except chest and back,right arm only,and a shrug ,in till left arm is fully healed, than it's on Dc two way split.

    Wednesday
    Low incline press 60 lbs- 12x's
    chest stretch 20 lb db 1:00

    Important note *I don't care anymore how much weight I did 105 lbs 6 x's in March and feel it more in the muscle, screw how much i can lift I'm a bodybuilder not a joint destroyer and I'll keep getting stronger, I'm just re-learning after six years to do it right and work the muscle*

    head against 90 degree bench, facinf the bench db press 25 lbs-15x's

    incline db tri extension 20lbs-20 x's

    one arm db row 60 lbs 10 x's

    db shrug 60-12

    pullup (assisted) 175 lbs 15

    Great taste and I feel better recovered AFTER I'm done and gives me peace of mind. this is worth the feeling of peace of mind.

    Good stuff bro. I agree with ya too. No need to push your body until you break it. Just enough to get the job done.

    So Intra-Aid is getting you hit on at the gym now? Who would have thought of that! LOL!

    haha thats funny. hey it seems to be working. That's my pickup technique I'm using while in the gym.

    on a more serious note I used to be in the PUA community for five years and done some crazy stuff, as for as dating and success with women. I still have friends in it , but had to give or up because I have more important things. It is good to learn these skills. Whenever when i was in the gym I didnt like talking to anyone in till after I was finished and got my post-drink in. I can see where this intra-aid can give you an extra three minutes in(or more) chance to get a number or schedule a date with a cutie, then have to massively worry about getting that post recovery in. It is worth it to get this skill handled., trust me on this.

    diet has been spot-on. nice.

    Today i did the Intra-aid in the middle of the workout on triceps. I tried 16 oz of water , which isn't bad. It personally tastes more refreshing with 25oz of very cold water or water with ice.

    Pec Fly machine 55 lbs- to failure
    Chest stretch 20 lbs- 1:00

    Behind back cable raises 5lbs-15x's

    Cable over the head triceps 10 lbs 25 x's

    incline db row 60 lbs-12 x's

    shrugs 65 lbs 15 x's

    Neck work left and right right hanging off bench 10 lbs- 20 x's each side

    I agree very cold water around 20 to 25 oz is the sweet spot for the mix.

    Today I was a little behind on eating. I wanted to workout instead of fix a meal so i dosed it early in the workout. That's another thing you can do,,if you didn't eat soon as you would have liked you can take it early in the workout and benefit.

    Incline DB 60 lbs 12x's
    chest stretch 25 lbs 1:00

    Lifefitness shoulder press 10 lbs-20x's

    underhand cable pushdown 15 lbs-30x's

    one arm cable rows 20 lbs

    widegrip chin(assisted) 175 lbs20 x's
    back hang 175 lbs 1:00

    Thoughts on intra-aid today: It went down nice and smooth , tasted good. Increased my energy. The carbohydrates in this stuff gave me a kick. and I helped some of my gym buddies move some plates afterward and conversed. Great workout. Hopefully I can start training everything, my elbow is feeling better; although, some slight twinges, I think I'm going to ask my elbow specialist to give me a cortisone shot. I don't think its going to hurt with all the research Ive done on it after all these months of not doing upper body. Thanks Animal/Universal Intra-aid is fantastic.

    Good stuff bro. I like to down it earlier in the WO myself. Take care of that elbow. Keep it warm. Do you use a wrap on it? maybe some icy-hot?

    I sip on my intra aid throughout... It tends to get destroyed after huge drop sets though. Definitely nurse that elbow back.

    Glad to see you getting the extra energy from it.

    I just use a shaker bottle or a milk jug. Shake vigorously.

    yes I use a wrap. I used to . I tried everything. I just ice and stretch it now. I have some rub on creams my Grand mom gave me I'm going to try in a sec. , however Ive tried the strongest of the strongest. not going to hurt.

    I haven't weighed in almost two weeks. I have seen a decrease in my stomach because I have been getting in 300 P, 200 C and 100 F , instead of 150. that's roughly 3k. (I'm getting ready for Am's online show). I'll bump it up when I get money to buy some more healthy fats. right now I just don't have the $$ for all those fats.

    One arm deadarm curls 20 lbs-15x
    One arm reverse cable curls 10 lbs-15
    standing smith calves(pre-contest Dc way) 25 lbs-10x
    good mornings(very wide stance toes forward) 15 lbs-12 x's
    Smith squats(wider stance)45+25+25= 7 x's
    Hip abductor(outer) 70 lbs-25 times
    Hip abductor quad stretch(outer) 1:00
    ham stretch (incline GHR) 1 :10

    overall great day

    I don't like to compare okay because each has their own use. I used purple wrath as a pre-workout supplement. I get more energy from the Intra-aid than I did while using purple wrath, due to something different in this ingredients then purple wrath, maybe the waizy maze, and the taste ohhh so good.=) Purple wrath has some good digestive ginger in it. This stuff goes down smooth and easy. its been great to me.

    Good stuff man. Looks like your really taking to the IA. As for the icy hot. I'm going to start this week on a tip I got from one of the really big brothers over at the legion. It's just a little bit out of the norm by public standards but looks like it may be a solid tip. If you are interested to know more PM me for details.

    Great feedback! I LOVE my PW, and it has gotten me through so much. But lately, it's started to upset my stomach mid-workout. I'm interested in Intra-Aid as something I can cycle in or even mix. I still add WMS and a few goodies to my PW now, but even as I stripped the additions the stomach aches still occur.

    Yesterday

    Incline DB 60 lbs-10
    chest stretch 25 1:00
    homon 90 % db press 25 lbs 20x's
    tricep db extension 20 lbs -25 x's
    one arn db row 60 lbs -15 x's
    db shrug 60 lbs -20 x's
    pullup(middle grip) 175 x's 20 x's
    back hang 175 assisted 1:00

    Got a cortisol shot today. I asked my Doc if I could lift with this arm, he said come back in a month.

    I might try some exercises if I'm confident my arm wont hurt. its pretty sore after this ****. My tricep tendons could be tore, Hopefully not. The golfers elbow has pretty much cleared my tricep tendon right below the elbow pops real loud when I flex it back.

    Aside from other crazy stuff you have heard recently ... have you tried any Animal Flex bro? I know you have tried a bunch of other joint supps but if you haven't given Animal Flex a shot yet maybe give it a go. Lots of us have really benefited from the relief it gives. It has won Joint supplement of the year for the third year in a row over at bb.com.

    Might help ya out?

    I know Animal flex works well. Look at all the great stuff in it. Too pricey for me at the moment. I had to quit my job back in August due to my arm because people see me and think Oh he can do all the heavy lifting.and I just couldn't do it , I was coming home in severe pain thumping in my arm

    anyways I have no money,this elbow has effected me career wise, sex wise, of course muscle wise and haven't had success finding a job with the economy like it is, and may not be able to find one for a while.

    Its ok, take it easy buddy. We often find ourselves in a dumps, we just gotta get back up.
    The economy is struggling, I agree. Its becoming harder, and harder to make decent money. I feel your pain.

    and I don't mean to go off on a ramble. if you don't demand and put yourself where you want to be , someone else puts you where they want you. make your choice in life. and don't accept or negotiate where you want to be just because your not getting your goals. make your goals happen 100 %. Back in 03 I set a bodybuilding goal for 06. i didn't achieve it and I came close. I did it on my terms and am proud I accomplished what I did.

    Tomorrow is a training day and I had to space it like this instead of today because I leave for a family trip to Chattanooga Tennessee to the aquarium for the weekend. along with a boat ride and other relaxing stuff.(hopefully I can find some adventurous stuff to keep me occupied, then some of the more conventional family stuff)
