    before workout, sip on during workout, and post workout before meal ...


    ...i dont use when bulking i use when cutting and it use ~4 scoops 90 minutes before ...~4 scoops during and ~4 scoops after ...i mix with Bulk BCAAs to help save money though ...and then i mix a bottle of it and sip on it throughout the day in between meals ...works like a charm!

    I like 20-30g periworkout. With sugar/carbolyn (2:1 ratio carbs to BCAA) or if low carbing, replace the carb with glutamine on a gram for gram basis.

    i use 3-4 scoops and add about 3g BA and 5g mono and start drinking pre-workout and drink throughout and then finish with a protein shake.

    Xtend is now a staple for me whether cutting or not.

    I definately feel it in the gym, ive run it on and off several times and can clearly tell the difference in reduced DOMs and recovery time in workouts.

    I sip 6 scoops through a workout in around 2 litres of water.

    Drink it during your workout, just like it says on the bottle. Obvious answer is obvious.

    The owner of Scivation takes in upwards of 20 scoops of Xtend a day, lots use 8-12, I think its a treat to take compared to some supps, I prefer through out the day, pre workout, and intra.

    I just picked up a tub of some and have used it for about a week. I am doing about 2 scoops w/ 8-10 grams leucine mixed in with it. That is for primarily intra, maybe polish off a little bit after my workout if there is a little left. The biggest difference I am noticing so far is less recovery time needed.
