    Performax Labs PowerMax XT Log & The Solution



    Performax Labs PowerMax XT


    The new version of PowerMax XT has several notable changes from the previous formula. The biggest changes come to PowerMax XT’s creatine, glutamine, creatinol-o-phosphate, and amentoflavone. Performax has traded creatine monohydrate and for a 3g blend of monohydrate, MCC, and creatine anhydrous. Additionally, they’ve completely removed amentoflavone and COP.
    Performax continues its streak of developing properly formulated products, and this intra workout / muscle builder is no different. More people need to know about this brand. Athletes need to get in here too.
    If you’re looking for a great stim-free pre to use while on a stim break, looking for a comprehensive muscle-builder, or you really want to amp up HyperMax XT’s experience…. PowerMax XT fits any scenario you could imagine.

    Taste
    Orange Dream – This is a very bold orange, and in my opinion it hits the spot just right. I even diluted my first serving with a bit more water then the label states (12-24oz per scoop). The orange flavor hits your right away, and then the density of the bold aftertaste really takes over. At first I was scared the raws of the WPH may stick out and get a bitter aftertaste, but Performax did a fantastic job of covering them up and providing a very well flavored product. I have to say I enjoy this orange, but nothing top Blood Orange from Xtend as that is my favorite orange on the market and nothing has come close to touching it. Overall I would give this an 8/10 on the rating scale, but if you actually look at the label and the full doses of the raws you get this is very good for what is in the product per serving.

    Mixability
    Even for a 21g scoop size this does mix pretty easy. I like to sip on this product pre/intra workout, so I throw 1 scoop in about 24-30oz of water and sip on it. I mix my product the night before for early morning training. This also helps with foaming or any kind of floating particles you may notice shortly after shaking. Therefore I do not notice any mixing issues with the product.



    Formula


    -9g of Whey Protein Hydrolysate containing all the essential amino acids, including the 3 BCAA's & EAA's and headlined by a full 3g of Leucine.
    - Performax has switched from 5g of pure creatine monohydrate to a 3g blend of monohydrate, magnesium creatine chelate (MCC), and creatine anhydrous.
    - Full dose of Betaine (2.5g) to enhance power, endurance, as well as protein synthesis
    - Synerglut is great for increasing cellular hydration and electrolyte levels, which lead to increased endurance and time to exhaustion
    - Taurine acts as a cell volumizer helping draw water and nutrients into muscle cells. (Hydration & Fullness)
    - Hydromax (1g) - Pumps
    - Electrolytes - Performance & Endurance

    This is one powerhouse of a peri-workout product!

    Expectations
    - Increased Performance & Endurance
    - Strength Gains
    - Lower rest times
    - Improved Pumps & Muscle Fullness
    - Improved Hydration

    - This foams VERY bad. I filled a 45oz shaker half way and put 1 scoop in , and nearly half the bottle was full of foam. I let it set for about 10-15 minutes and it went away, but then a lot of the WPH (I assume) sits at the bottom no matter how much you shake it. Just make sure you mix this in advance and fridge it so the foam does go away. But this is VERY VERY foamy.

    - Another member wrote about weight of the product when filled to an even scoop. I took 1 scoop and weighed it out and it came to 21g/21g . The scoop is about 1-2g and when i weighed with the scoop it was 22-23g. Therefore my scoop comes out right as stated when leveled off (not heaping).

    - Let me use the product a few times before I can report back on different uses. Right now I am going to rotate between fasted and fed workouts to see if I notice a true difference. Yesterday was fasted, today was fed. So far nothing difference to note.

    - Flavor wise.. I can fill a 45oz shaker and the orange flavor still shines through, the cream not much at all. This is more of a bold orange flavor.

  12. I'm in as well. Great initial detail as always.

    On days where I have a few minutes extra before leaving the house, I'll stir it with a spoon in my shaker cup. That helps quite a bit with foam.

    I use a 45oz Shaker Cup. Good luck finding a spoon that big.
    I mix it the night before, but honestly man it foams half the shaker cup. if i use 24oz of liquid and shake the rest of the cup is pure foam. Like a LOT Of foam. That is a ton....

    Yeah, I tried my first scoop last night. It did the same thing. I swirled it instead of shook.

    What ingredient is doing this?

    most likely the WPH & Hydromax
    Both are hard to mix, and why you may see it settle at the bottom of the shaker.

  16. I was just going to say that the whey was probably causing foaming. Typo in the label right? Hydrolysate

  17. With any product I really don't care if it foams. I just shake and drink it, refill as needed since it's an intra.

    the problem is... in a 45oz shaker the foam fills up HALF the shaker when you mix it. like 20oz worth. its pretty ludicrous. I understand a little bit of foam, but man over 20+ oz of foam for 20oz of liquid is a ton.

    Try more "stirring" it in the bottle. I don't know I you've tried that, but less of a shaking (vigorous, fast, up and down) and more of just not too fast circular motions with the bottle (think imitating the motion stirring it with a spoon would cause), and maybe just tilting it at a decent speed to mix it. I've found it mixes easily enough, and if I keep it slow/calm enough, the foaming isn't nearly as much.

    I shake mine at first to get things going, let it settle then stir it off and on throughout my workout.

    - Even stirring it (24oz 1 scoop) and then filling the rest with water it still foams pretty bad. I even let it sit overnight, but the bottom 1/2" of my shaker cup was a clump of WPH/Hydromax just sitting down there. Mix wise this product is far from great.

    - Rest times were 60 seconds, good, but it is only day 3 , so it is hard to really notice a massive difference.

    - Fasted workout this AM because it is such a long day for me.. Work till 7, concert till midnight (miss may I, ice nice kills)... back at it bright and early tomorrow for another fasted session due to work tomorrow till 7 as well

  22. The key is how you mix it. Don't shake it up and down, and don't do anything fast. Sort of swirl the bottle with the powder and liquid in it, think imitating the motion mixing it with a spoon would do. Then maybe just tilt it back and forth. It actually mixes very easily and completely in my experience, so there's no need to go crazy shaking it. I just mixed 1 scoop in a 32oz Gatorade bottle with 20oz water, and using the above method, foam was minimal, and the mix was complete and thorough. The foam was not that much, and went away/down after a few minutes. I have some pics and a video if anyone needs help visualizing it.

  23. Thanks for the honest feedback! We are definitely going to be adding more Anti Foaming agent in future runs to make sure this problem is taken care of right away.

    I also think it may have something to do with the volume the foam has to expand in. Ive always used a normal 25oz shaker and while it does foam up a little it seems to go away fairly quick. Maybe in a larger shaker like a 45oz where it has more room to expand, it does, not sure as I have never mixed it in that sized container but in a normal shaker it doesn't seem to be 'too bad'

    Regardless we do appreciate the feedback as it allows us to address any issues, so in future runs, there will be dramatically less foaming!!

    Added 24oz water, Scoop, Stirred with spoon, added rest of water and did not shake at all. Still was foaming as I mixed it with a spoon. Better, but still had 10+oz of foam to the shaker cup. Have to let it settle for 5-10 minutes before adding more water.

    Rough workout this morning to start. Was at a concert till about midnight, got home, and have a rough time sleeping (light sleeper), and was up by 4 AM. So slept maybe 2 hours tops. After a few exercises I was picking up steam to finish the workout better then I started.

    back is a little tender as this was the 3rd time hitting back this week, but doing what it takes to attack a weakpoint and getting it to grow. I enjoy the orange as its not very strong (especially because I dilute it so much) but the flavor still shines in a 45oz shaker, the cream portion not so much. I think of it more of a orange sherbet without the sweetness of a dairy product. If that makes sense.

    Tomorrow will be the true test on leg day and especially after a few meals in me instead of fasted the last few days.


    Pics from this morning (Fasted):
