    Yup 6! 4 scoops are used pre/intra workout and 2 scoops are immediately after workout. The 4 scoops intra is pretty standard and I don't drink a whey shake after my workout I take more xtend (usually 1-2 scoops).

    Being in a calorie deficit I feel it's important to surround your workout with aminos to help maintain muscle.

    Xtend truely is one of my staples that I use consistently and in all honestly if you break it down it really isn't that much money.

    180 scoops a container
    5 scoops a workout would give me 36 workouts

    Nutra sells xtend for $45
    So $45/ 36 workouts is $1.25 a workout!

    $1.25 a workout really isn't much at all.. Let me break it down further

    I usually lift 3 times a week
    3 times a week / 36 workouts would be 12 weeks worth of workouts

    12 weeks is about 3 months
    So $45 for the container and it last 3 months is
    45/3 = $15 a month

    I think $15 a month is way worth it for a product that I know works.
    If you think about how much do you pay for other supplements and how long do they last? I used to run through whey and now I barely buy it. I usually only use whey for in-between meals when I'm pressed for time and that's only when I don't already have some eggs or chicken cooked that's in the fridge. BCAAs are great and a staple for me especially while trying to cut.



    45 for 90

    2.50 a workout and last 18 workouts which at 3 workouts a week last 6 weeks*

    I never really looked for a bcaa mix with that ratio bit I have thought about buying some bulk leucine and adding it my xtend before but never did.

    I am more than willing to try one if you know of any with that ratio

    I might invest in a tub after my xtend is done to give it a try. I wonder if I would still need 4 scoops intra workout with that much leucine in theirs?

    Have you tasted nutras bulk BCAAs and leucine before? I was thinking of mixing my own batch and using some vitaberry for flavoring

  8. Put it like that it makes sense. I was also thinking 90 scps instead of servings, 180 good deal. Never had it gotta try it

    I use 2, may try 4 and see how that works.

    I haven't tried NP BCAA's. That's a great idea though, provided vitaberry taste good.

  11. lol 6 scoops sounded like a lot then i remembered that thats only 3 servings, i was thinking like 42g bcaas

    i was rly unimpressed with recoverypro's flavoring. was literally like bcaa's with underdosed lemonade crystal light. i had to mix a whole tub of vitaberry with it to make it taste manageable. but xtend is amazingggg on flavor, but more $$. trade offs either way

    No problem

    I really like xtend but then again I have only tried xtend and recoup for BCAAs. There are lots of options when it comes to bcaas.. I obvioudly recomend xtend but recoverpro and ibcaas are some really good other options too I just never used them

    Well I have really been meaing to try and take in more leucine. I read an article about it a while back and it really peaked my interest but I just never really put forth the effort to seek out a mix that already had the higher amount of leucine and was afraid of ordering nutras bulk leucine and destroying the delicious flavor of my xtend

    I am seriously gonna give recoverpro a shotI am thinking after this container of xtend is done unless a sale pops up in which I may end up ordering it sooner to try it out

    Quote Originally Posted by HereToStudy View Post

    vitaberry has been on my list of supplements to try but never got around to it. I had recieved a sample pack a loooong time ago but it ended up lost and never took it

    What is the ratio of IBCAAs?

    Side note one your PPs reps PM'd me with an offer to log one of the andro series products at a discount and it has really been messing with my head. I dont really have the funds currently but I do have a credit card and so tempted to just say fuk it! and order away. That androlean looks very promising and a androlean+androhard looks even better and a tren+androhard stack sounds like it could be fun too. Ahh decisions, decisions...

    Im somewhat confused ..what did you have to make the vitaberry with? and yes xtend is delicious! I have the grape flavor now and loving it. You think recoverpro is a better deal? I gotta compare the price per servings and see

    I never had the pleasure to try watermelon... I have had lemonade, grape, lemon lime, and apple. So far grape is my favorite

    So recoverpro is off the shelves currently?.. hopefully when it comes back they will have a sale price and I will definetely order one then to test out

    RECAP


    Narrative
    I fasted succesfully for 24+ hours I drank 3 servings of my fasted mix that I post in my last update. As to the effictiveness of Fat Smack on appettite supression I would say at first I was starving! but then it faded and I barely thought about food. I could definetely tell when my first dose of Fat Smack wore off because the hunger came right back but then faded again after my second dose. Overall I was very satisifed with it for the day

    When I came home from work it was about 22 hours fasting.. I took 2 caps SLINshot and got my grub on Started off with a small salad with a hard boiled egg and chicken and then nice sized ribeye steak with a bunch of roasted red potatoes and quiona and ended it with some frozen bananas chopped up and topped with melted dark chocolate with hazelnuts!

    Wanted to wait 2 hours after my meal before going to sleep so I ended up going to bed pretty late

    *BONUS*

    I experimented with a recipe thursday. I was at a resturant some time back and on the menu they had flounder francaise which said it was a flounder filet coated with egg and flour fried in white wine. Well I had some wild caught flounder in the freezer that I had been wanting to make but didn't really have an idea on how to cook the white fish (since I made the move towards paleo I didn't really wanna use my old bay on top) so when I read this a light when off in my head and I decided to try this out but with some almond meal

    I dipped the flounder in egg and then coated it in a mix of almond meal with some lemon pepper spinkled in it and then pan fried it with some EVOO and it came out great! I will be doing this again and will post up pics with a nutrition break down and serving sizes of ingredients used

    I dont know what "Ajinomoto" was so I tried to google it.. didnt really find a clear answer but I did stumbled upon this thread Extensive BCAA/EAA Comparison (Xtend,NP Bulk, Purple Wrath, ICE (Ajinomoto) + Others) Pretty good stuff in there for you guys considering BCAAs. Looks like he says PP is the best overall but recoverpro isnt tried and xtend looks to reign supreme with flavoring

    I don't know if anyone's ever tried this one. It's called Core ABC. Nutra carries Core MRP and Core ZAP, not sure why they don't carry the ABC. Here's the label. I love that Core's products are not a prop blend.


  19. Good luck on this Josh! I've used Slin Shot and Fat Smack separately, and they're both pretty good. Whenever I took SlinShot post workout, I always felt like I could eat a lot more. I hope they treat you well together!

    haha, mixed vitaberry with the recoverypro. recoverypro was horrible for me. better deal per gram of aminos, but not when u consider u could just get a ton of bulk bcaas and flavor them urself.

  21. You can get a kilo of BCAA for $20. Now that's cheap.

  22. I mostly used tha AX brand which was also 4:1:1 but I was getting it free. I switch to Recoverpro when I had to start paying for it, lol. I've tasted worse and forced it down, ASGT for example.

    I didn't realize recoverpro was off the shelf, why?

    Don't take this the wrong way, I not trying to make a sale or anything. I was just wondering if JJ had tried the 4 to 1 version and if so, did he think it was worth it. It's all I've used, never tried the 2 to 1 version.

    Never heard of the company before.. How is the taste and price of their BCAAs?

    Sorry that was my fault I misread you original post. I thought it said you were impressed with the flavor and then continued to say you had to add a whole tub of vitaberry for flavor.. So that's how I got confused.. My bad lol

    Hopefully this re-release of recoverpro will have a better flavoring system
